Bennett Miller's Foxcatcher Delayed Until 2014
IndieWire reports Miller and the producers are pushing the planned December release of Foxcatcher off until 2014. This is the point in which I jump up and down, beating my chest, yelling, “Are you kidding me?” Luckily, Sony Pictures wisely released the film’s first trailer and gave us something to bide our time with, and boy is it a doozy.
Steve Carell Transforms Himself Into A Killer In First Foxcatcher Image
I've had my eye on Bennett Miller's Foxcatcher for ages, and for a lot of the obvious Oscar-baity reasons. It's the follow-up film from the director of Moneyball and Capote, and tells another true story with a tinge of murder, about how the heir to a massive fortune came to sponsor a wrestling team and eventually murder one of the players. And, as you might expect from the guy who made Moneyball, Foxcatcher has a fantastic cast in place to draw you in
Channing Tatum And Steve Carell's Oscar Contender Foxcatcher Gets Key December Release
It sounds a drastic shift for Miller, though Capote was a true-crime drama-thriller driven by elaborate characters and top-shelf acting. Carell and Ruffalo certainly is capable of soul-searching performances. The wild card will be Tatum, who absolutely has grown and matured as an actor.
Supervillainy, Fatherhood And The Pain Of Rejection: Steve Carell Talks Despicable Me 2
A couple weeks ago I was invited to go to participate in a press day for the newly-released animated film Despicable Me 2, during which time Carell fielded questions from film reporters during a press conference. Read on below to discover the origins of Gru’s voice, fear of becoming a too overprotective parent, and the horrible, lasting effect that romantic rejection early in life can have.
Alexander And The Terrible, Horrible... Casts Aussie Child Actor As The Lead
Kids these days. Well, more specifically, kid stars these days. Just when you think we've gotten away with making people famous way, way too early, allowing the Jodie Fosters and Natalie Portmans of the world to grow up just fine, you get a Lindsay Lohan or Corey Haim or Amanda Bynes to break your heart all over again. And the crazy thing is, we keep making more of these kid stars. You'd think they might be able to make a system like the way they have stunt bears
Steve Carell Appears On Ellen As Despicable Me 2's Antihero Gru
Gru is undeniably a crowd sensation, showcased best when he’s allowed to run around and dance in the audience to some disco. Not a whole lot of actual conversation about the movie takes place, seeing as how to Gru, there is no movie, but we do find out that he’s from Albuquerque and that he ran into Ellen at a Starbucks on a previous occasion.
The Incredible Burt Wonderstone Will Appear On Blu-ray And DVD In June
If you haven’t caught the film, yet, it’s still playing in some theaters, but if you are just waiting for the home entertainment release, you’ll be able to purchase the film beginning on June 25. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem as if Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will be putting together an early digital release for the flick, which means Blu-ray copies, DVD copies, and digital downloads will be available simultaneously.
The Way Way Back Trailer: Sundance's Biggest Acquisition Shows Its Stuff
A lot of films sold for some pretty good money at this year's Sundance Film Festival, but none for quite so much-- and quite so much attention-- as The Way Way Back, a comedy from the Oscar-winning co-writers of The Descendants, Nat Faxon and Jim Rash. The duo also make their directorial debut on the film, a nostalgia-filled story about a teenage boy's summer
Steve Carell And Tina Fey's Mail-Order Groom Gets Pushed Back
Date Night wasn't a great movie by any means, but Carell and Fey did make for a funny leading couple and had some really good chemistry. It's too bad that we'll have to wait a while before we see them on screen together again, but at least a delay is better than a cancellation.
Steve Carell's Tina Fey Reunion Is Next, While Musical Doc Adaptation Dies Out
The comedian’s slate is a mixed bag of surefire hits, Oscar hopefuls and dead projects … like Of All the Things. A feature version of a musical documentary centered around songwriter and producer Dennis Lambert – who worked with the Four Tops and Dusty Springfield – has been unplugged after years of development.
Tattoos, Vegas Crowds And Rodney Dangerfield: Jim Carrey And Steve Carell Talk Burt Wonderstone
“I think magicians are a lot more arrogant,” Carrey said. “That’s what bothered me about magicians growing up. I was always fascinated by it growing up, they’re kind of like, ‘Abracadabra, you’re an idiot!’ They don’t let you in on the joke. Comedians are in on the joke, unless you’re Andy Kaufman.”
Experience The Incredible Burt Wonderstone's Bed Bouncing Skills In New Game
It presumably won’t take any amount of elaborately constructed mirrors or intentional distraction to make The Incredible Burt Wonderstone a runaway hit. It’s directed by Don Scardino, a television veteran with who helmed a season and a half of 30 Rock throughout its run. Stars Steve Carrell and Jim Carrey are playing over-the-top comedic roles that still feel atypical to what we normally see them doing
Steve Carell And Steve Buscemi Enchant In Incredible Burt Wonderstone Promo
This tongue-in-cheek trailer features Steve Carell and Steve Buscemi as Las Vegas magicians Burt Wonderstone and Anton Marvelton at the high point of the dynamic duo's career. But that has passed. Nowadays, audiences want something new and strange. Wonderstone and Marvelton are playing to dwindling crowds while a street performer (Jim Carrey) steals their thunder with bizarre fetes and grungy goth fashion sense.
Meryl Streep Wants A Cameo In Anchorman 2
I'm pretty sure there's a clause in every single contract Meryl Streep signs that she's allowed to do whatever the hell she wants. Suddenly turn Hope Springs into a musical? Sure. Be a famous American playing Margaret Thatcher in The Iron Lady? Hey, it won her an Oscar! It might even go so far that every contract for every movie includes a Streep clause
Steve Carell Talks The Fun Of Playing A Douchebag On The Set Of The Incredible Burt Wonderstone
We’ve all heard the classic line about how it’s always more fun to play the villain, but surprisingly you never hear about the benefits of playing the asshole hero. Sure, playing the baddie allows a sense of freedom from consequence...
