'The Inbetweeners Movie': Co-writer Iain Morris on his U.K. comedy and erotic uses for sliced ham

Which raunchy comedy concerning a quartet of male friends and their alcohol-fueled misadventures in a warm foreign country grossed $71m when it was released in the U.K. last year? Surprisingly, the answer is not The Hangover Part II—which garnered a comparatively meager $53m—but The Inbetweeners Movie, a big screen spin-off of a U.K. sitcom about four hapless teenagers.

'Red Dawn' first look: Thor and Peeta fight some Commies -- PHOTOS

The first images of Red Dawn — the remake of John Milius’ 1984 nationalistic ode to the Second Amendment and finally kicking the USSR out of Colorado — have hit the ‘net after a long, long wait. The film had been held back for years due to MGM’s financial difficulties, and in the meantime its primary villains were given a quick makeover, switching from the Chinese to a country where nobody buys movie tickets: North Korea. Also in the meantime, stars like Chris Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson made it big with roles in huge franchises.

“I saw it the other day and I was like, ‘Oh, right, I made this!’” joked Hemsworth to EW last week, talking about making the film before he had much experience in Hollywood. “It had this school camp feel. We were all from somewhere else and we were all excited about the adventure we were about to go on. It was like going to a new school, it’s just that at this school, we were shooting at people.”

One of the biggest surprises at Comic-Con earlier this month was 
Legendary Pictures' splashy debut of its reboot of the Godzilla franchise, complete with a jaw-dropping concept reel and the introduction of the film's director, Gareth Edwards. The British filmmaker, whose only previous feature directing credit is the indie thriller Monsters, wasted no time making clear his film would not be a retread of the 1998 big-budget remake of Godzilla. That movie, from writer-producer Dean Devlin and writer-director Roland Emmerich, was widely derided for being too silly and cheesy"We're going to take it seriously," Edwards told the Comic-Con crowd of his version of the Japanese monster movie staple. "It's very grounded [and]

realistic.”

When EW caught up with Devlin at the Saturn Awards on Thursday night, we asked him what his thoughts were when he heard about Legendary’s new take on the venerable fire-breathing, city-demolishing giant lizard. READ FULL STORY

Alice Cooper talks about his 'Dark Shadows' cameo -- and his many other memorable onscreen adventures

It doesn’t come as a huge surprise to discover horror movie-lovers Alice Cooper and Tim Burton had plenty to talk about when the rocker turned up to film a cameo in the director’s new, Johnny Depp-starring movie Dark Shadows. “We had dinner one night in London and we both knew every point of reference,” Cooper recalls. “If he would say, ‘Suspiria’ I would say ‘Dario Argento.’ I see the humor in horror as much as Tim or Johnny does, so we really do fit together.”

The “School’s Out” star plays himself in Burton’s big budget adaptation of the bizarre, supernatural soap opera, which opens May 11. It says a great deal about the eccentric nature of the rock star’s filmography that Dark Shadows is likely to stand as one of its less insane entries. In this week’s Entertainment Weekly, Cooper talks at length about appearing in such cinematic curios as the Mae West vehicle Sextette, the infamous musical Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, and the werewolf farrago Monster Dog — as well as his roles in better-received projects like Prince of Darkness and Wayne’s World. READ FULL STORY

CinemaCon 2012: Will 'Total Recall' remake feature woman with three boobs?

There are a lot of questions about the upcoming Total Recall remake.

Will Colin Farrell be able to fill the action-hero shoes of Arnold Schwarzenegger? How closely will the remake stick to the original Philip K. Dick story, and how much will it take from the 1990 movie version? Can Kate Beckinsale be as alluring (and duplicitous) as Sharon Stone?

Most of that can only be answered when the film finally debuts on Aug. 3, but footage previewed by Sony Pictures at CinemaCon tonight did answer the question already posed in our headline.
