BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
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
Directed by Will Gluck, who brought us the surprisingly awesome Easy A last summer, Friends With Benefits stars Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake which, Oscars aside, I think is a much better pairing then Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher. The poster isn't really anything to be "wowed" by, but...
Last we heard from the live-action, English-language Akira remake, things weren't looking so great. The script was being re-written by Steve Kloves and Mila Kunis bailed to be in Oz: The Great and Powerful. Even worse, director Albert Hughes found himself headbutting with the head of Warner Bros., who apparently called Brad Pitt to try and get him cast in the film.
Yeah, the trailer's a little sprawling, and it's hard to know what this movie is about beyond just watching Kunis and Timberlake run around and sing in their underwear-- but at this point, I don't really need to know anything else to be sold. Friends With Benefits hits theaters on July 22
Everyone from Jim Carrey and Sean Penn to Andy Samberg and Benicio del Toro has been attached to the film. None of that seemed to pan out. Tonight we’ve been gifted with more casting rumors to heap on the pile. How does Justin Timberlake as Larry work for you?
There's a lot going on in the trailer, and it's hard to know if it'll all fit together in a coherent or actually funny movie. But with Jake Kasdan directing, his first film since the hilarious and terribly underrated Walk Hard, and The Office's Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg writing, there's reason for a little bit of blind faith.
Whereas the Star Wars and Annie Hall debate is still wrestled with today, one technically better, one more entertaining, The Social Network far surpasses all other Best Picture nominees on both measures. It’s the ideal combination of greatness and entertainment value
Once one of the hottest actresses around, Catherine Zeta-Jones has all but completely disappeared in the last few years. Ten years ago she was averaging about two films per year, but

If you haven't figured it out already, Yogi Bear, starring Dan Aykroyd and Justin Timberlake, looks just plain awful. The first two trailers have made the film look like an embarrassment for all involved and

It's a great sign that they're getting rid of that awful title, and Kartheiser's baby face will fit well into a sci-fi world where no one but the rich can age beyond 25 (he's playing Amanda Seyfried's father, despite being just six
For the past hour I've been riding high on the trailer for True Grit. Between the beautiful hymn used for the music, Hailee Steinfeld's voice-over and Roger Deakins' cinematography, I was in movie geek heaven

I was recently selected as one of the few lucky critics to get an early look at David Fincher's The Social Network. If it wasn't already clear enough in my five-star review,I think that the film is a masterpiece.
The site itself is well worth a look just for the ominous music playing in the background and the genius design, but it also debuted a whole slew of new stills-- 45 of them!--introducing the central characters of the film
