BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Shooting a movie on the streets of New York is never an easy task, but that goes double when you're working with stars on the level of Carey Mulligan and Justin Timberlake, both of whom were bundled up yesterday in Manhattan to shoot Inside Lllewyn Davis. They're probably the starriest names in the cas
Justin Timberlake is definitely coming along as an actor, but he does need to work a bit on consistency. While The Social Network was amazing and Bad Teacher was surprisingly funny, he also has titles like Yogi Bear and In Time on his resume from the last two years. The key may be for him to start working with more talented people.
As a fan of Elton John, I think it’s fair to say that it’ll take an especially talented actor with strong musical abilities to take on the role of the musician in his biopic. If Elton John has his way, that person could be Justin Timberlake. The “Rocket Man” singer offered some updates on the project, including vague news on the status of the director and his hope for Timberlake to star.
Here's some news that ought to take the sting out of the negative reviews Justin Timberlake's latest movie, In Time, is racking up. Variety is reporting that the Coen Bros. have offered Justin Timberlake a lead role in their next movie, Inside Llewyn Davis. Centered around the folk music scene in Greenwich Village during the 1960s, the movie is loosely based on the life of folk singer Dave Van Ronk.
The first clip actually does a good job of clarifying the central conceit of the movie, which is that it takes place in a future where time, not money, is the new currency. When Vincent Kartheiser, a.k.a. Pete Campbell, says he's been 25 years old for 85 years, he means it literally-- everyone is born with 25 years to live, and the only way to live longer is to buy it
Boardwalk Entertainment Group announced today that Timberlake will produce and star in Spinning Gold, a biopic of music producer Neil Bogart, who launched the careers of 70s music icons like KISS, Donna Summer and the Village People. Bogart died at just 39 years old of cancer, but before he did he founded Boardwalk Records, which became a Boardwalk Entertainment Group which is now Boardwalk Films
If you want to catch Timberlake fulfill his dream of playing Woody Harrelson in basketball – apparently the love for White Men Can’t Jump never dies – Friends with Benefits will be available on Blu-Ray and DVD on December 2, just in time for the holidays.
The last trailer seemed to have finally nailed the mix between explaining the plot and revealing too much, but now Fox is out with a new international trailer that's two minutes and 40 seconds long and reveals everything. You can see the deaths of actors you might not have even known were in it, a series of what look like climactic battles, lots of characters talking about exactly how this whole "time is money" thing works. Take a look at the trailer below
It's the best of the three, clearly establishing the rules of this world while also hinting at some excellent chase scenes, and even giving us the unsettling sight of Olivia Wilde playing Justin Timberlake's mom (remember, in this world, your wealth = time, and that means you never age). Check it all out below
While promoting the film on Ryan Seacrest’s radio program, Kunis admits that she does show “side boob” in director Will Gluck’s comedy (which is wall-to-wall sex scenes between the brunette beauty and Justin Timberlake), she held off on bearing her derrier because she “can't just give away everything all at once. ... I gotta let it all out in little pieces here and there."
Justin Timberlake seems poised to become the next breakout movie star and, though he’s starring in Friends with Benefits this weekend, odds are that movie won’t be significant enough to do the trick. What he needs is a big, summer, sci-fi blockbuster… and here it is. In Time is Timberlake’s next big picture.
It probably doesn't mean much good for the actual Lethal Weapon reboot if this project now has a major star attached, but then again that's probably a good thing-- the buddy cop comedy is eternal, but Murtaugh and Riggs deserve to fade into the past with dignity
Jason Segel’s next comedy outing coming in the form of the Cameron Diaz vehicle Bad Teacher, an R-rated comedy about a pretty middle-school teacher on the hunt for a new man who undoubtedly will see the err in her ways and be a changed woman by the end of it. That doesn’t sound all that exciting until you sprinkle on Segel’s genius comedic timing and Justin Timberlake’s....Timberlakiness
I’m going to take this moment to be brutally honest: tonight’s MTV Movie Awards were just plain awful. Host Jason Sudeikis, who is normally pretty damn funny, relied on repetitive Arnold Schwarzenegger jokes for cheap laughs, the skits were awful and every single award was predictable and/or awful (the exception being Emma Stone’s win for Best Comedic Performance).
I'm torn, because it's a great trailer showing off a lot of really funny moments, but again, that's four or five more jokes that won't be fresh once you see the movie. I don't think director Will Gluck is as committed to the improvisational comedy style as Bridesmaids director Paul Feig
