Saying Goodbye: Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms And Zach Galifianakis Talk The End Of The Hangover Movies
In the summer of 2009 Todd Phillips’ The Hangover became a smash hit and stars Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis became three of the biggest, most sought-after names in Hollywood. The success continued with the first sequel, The Hangover Part II. But this weekend, as you’ve read on the posters, it all ends.
Star Trek Into Darkness Spoilers, With Damon Lindelof And Bryan Burk
Want to know how they chose the film's villain? Want to know just how much they think about Trek fans and what they've been demanding of the sequel ever since the first one came out? (Spoiler: they care a lot). Want to hear about the decision-making that went into one of the film's biggest scenes?
How Do Tax Incentives For Movie Productions Work? An Expert Explains It All
We reached out to someone who has lots of experience with these subsidies from the filmmaker's angle. Mary Jane Skalski is a celebrated producer who has helped create such acclaimed independent films as The Station Agent, Mysterious Skin, Pariah and Win Win. And she was good enough to share her thoughts on these incentives programs...
Noah Baumbach Explains How He Shook Up His Entire Process To Make Frances Ha
Baumbach explained that he sought out unusual financing to make Frances Ha, allowing himself more time to experiment with the film's style and to make the movie virtually in secret (the first time most of us heard it was when it was added to the Toronto Film Festival lineup barely a month before its premiere). I asked him to go into detail about how he shook up his usual method of making movies, and how that made making Frances more of a marathon than, say, the sprint that was Squid and the Whale
Frances Ha's Greta Gerwig, On Why She Loves Jaws And Why Acting Is Like Skydiving
When Sophie moves in with somebody else Frances's life is sent into a bit of a free-fall, and though Frances Ha is a comedy and most everything turns out OK, the chaos of Frances's life is painful and true and hilarious and fantastic and remarkably fresh, even after two seasons of Girls.
Simon Pegg: How J.J. Abrams Inspired Him So Much On Star Trek Into Darkness That He Threw Up
He did tell me about where he was when he learned that Abrams would be directing Star Wars, and how he got the director to confirm Trek won't be the older, less cool sibling left behind. We also talked about the serious sprinting Scotty does in one key action scene in Star Trek Into Darkness, what it's like being one of the older cast members, and why he, Edgar Wright and Nick Frost are being so vigilant about maintaining the secrets about their upcoming comedy The World's End
Star Trek Into Darkness's John Cho, On Sulu And His Fear Of Alec Baldwin
By the time this year's Star Trek Into Darkness came along, John Cho says he'd become more comfortable stepping into Sulu's shoes-- but with a role that mostly has him on the bridge of the Enterprise and even occasionally taking over the captain's chair, there was a whole new set of challenges. Like, how do you pretend you're under fire when you're sitting on a set?
Sarah Polley, Playing Sensitive Interrogator And Making A Masterpiece With Stories We Tell
The actress who doesn't do a lot of interviews, and who freely admits to usually hating them, has found herself as a kind of secret keeper all over again, as journalists and audience members moved by the film tell her their own family secrets-- as she told me when we met at a Manhattan hotel in April, "It turns out that film journalists have the most fucked up families in the world."
Imogen Poots Talks 90s Fashion, Playing The Girlfriend, And The Mysteries Of Terrence Malick
Imogen Poots, the 23-year-old British actress you may recognize from 28 Weeks Later or Jane Eyre, is on the rise, and that means-- you guessed it-- a lot of girlfriend parts. But in all of them, which includes the new film Greetings from Tim Buckley, you can see how she's making the most of it and turning these women not just into props for the male leads...
Christmas And The Future Of The Marvel Universe: Talking Iron Man 3 With Shane Black And Kevin Feige

Check out our conversation below, in which the filmmakers talk about Christmas time, using genre-within-genre, introducing new characters to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and much more.
Penn Badgley On Becoming Jeff Buckley And Escaping The Gossip Girl Gilded Cage
It's a huge challenge for any actor to star in a biopic, especially when it's a movie about a performer, someone whose life and mannerisms are very, very familiar to fans. That job gets even harder when you're doing it in your 20s, and triple-harder when you're still most famous for starring on a soapy teen show about rich kids
