BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
To think that Christopher Plummer was almost Gandalf in Peter Jackson's Lord Of The Rings is surprising in and of itself. Yet hearing the man himself explain just why he didn't sign on the dotted line is even more unexpected when you hear it.
Hot Tub Time Machine 2 is looking at a bleak, Fifty Shades-dominated scenario this weekend. Despite that, the cast of the film are nevertheless making their rounds doing their best to get people taking about this fun-filled time-bending romp of a sequel.
Remember Mac and Me? If not, you’re probably better off. The film, which probably wanted to be the next E.T. didn’t exactly go down in history as one of the 80s best kids movies. But Paul Rudd and Conan O’Brien have continued to keep the memory of the 1988 film alive by showing the same clip just about every time Rudd sits down with Conan on his late night talk show.
Whether it be for prank calling purposes or simply our own personal amusement, those Arnold Schwarzenegger soundboards exist for a reason. The Austrian actor has a distinctive accent and a vast catalog of great movie lines. And while many of us probably think we do a pretty great Schwarzenegger impersonation, none are quite as spot-on as the man himself.
In anticipation of the Academy Awards, and perhaps as a cure for “Oscar Fever,” Conan O’Brien has been dedicating some time at the start of each episode this week to Oscar nominated films. Last night’s episode featured a segment that had Conan’s band (Jimmy Vivino and the Basic Cable Band) re-scoring War Horse.
Even Andy Richter seemed to know that Conan's pre-Oscar tribute to The Artist was a little half-thought out-- mostly it seemed like Conan wanted a chance to shake his gangly legs and tap dance on the desk. But really, who can blame him for that, especially when he slaps on a pencil-thin mustache and big grin
Those who go to bed before the late night talk shows air often miss out on some of the funniest, most interesting and even telling industry anecdotes because, well, not everyone always stays on script. On rare occasion, a movie star or starlet might let a nugget of truth slip from their mouth during said interviews, even admitting that they hate the film they're supposed to be plugging
If you think we’ve underestimated one of your favorites or forgotten a beloved ignoramus, let us know in the comment section. Otherwise, stand back and let the idiocy waft over you. Salt shakers are about to be thrown, shoes are about to be eaten, little coats are about to be ripped and it’s going to start smelling of boats and hos in here
Empire Magazine debuted some pretty amazing new photos from the upcoming remake of Conan the Barbarian. The redo is directed by Marcus Nispel, with Jason Momoa taking on the role that made Arnold Schwarzenegger a household name. Somehow I doubt it’ll do the same for him...
When you really think about it, motion posters are really just flash ads that happen to make their way into the news section of movie websites. It's also kind of annoying that they start up automatically and usually play loud, blaring music or sound effects, neither of which are great when you are looking at them at work with your speakers turned up.
Earlier this week Conan unveiled Homeland Security’s new Nicholas Cage Terror Alert system, in which they plan to notify the country of just how afraid we should be by firing off
Afraid of alienating fans of the 1982 Arnold Schwarzenegger original, the upcoming Marcus Nispel film has been titled Conan since its inception. Whether the studio has since gotten over its fears or
Look at these and you’ll feel the barbarism wash over you so strongly that you want to lay waste to a village, crush your enemies and hear the lamentation of their women
If there’s an exact opposite to today’s modern political correctness then John Milius’s 1982 movie Conan the Barbarian is it. The film exists in a world of, well, barbarians
After the last image of the new Conan the Barbarian came out earlier this month, nobody was in any sort of rush to see more of what the film has to offer. The picture looked more like a computer-made painting
Ratner is in talks to direct a live-action Hercules film for Conan producers Nu Image/Millenium. Apparently he wants to prove to the masses that he can make a Gladiator clone since he didn’t get the job when Nu Image
I've been doing my best to stay mildly positive about Marcus Nispel's remake of Conan The Barbarian. It's hard to imagine anyone other than Arnold Schwarzenegger in the title role
Back in May, the first shots of Jason Momoa as Conan the Barbarian popped up online. They were blurry, they were small, and not much to get excited about. Unlike those, the first official photo isn't only
We recently learned that Rachel Nichols, who plays Scarlett in G.I. Joe, signed on to play Tamara, a bodyguard of the Queen and Conan’s love interest. Now, Breaker, Said Taghmaoui, is joining the cast as well. He will play the leader of a group of thieves who are rescued by Conan (Jason Momoa) and, in return, offers Conan aid.
Look I’m as ready to rake Sony over the coals as anyone, what they’ve done to Spider-Man is atrocious. But there’s no need to make it even worse by inventing fake casting rumors. In particular, fake casting rumors involving Robert Pattinson
What better way to clarify film production misconceptions than by using 140 characters on Twitter? After San Diego Comic Con 2008, you’d think Robert Rodriguez would have Red Sonja in theaters sooner rather than later
We may have our replacement Schwarzenegger. Lionsgate and Nu Image films have been on a search for a new, heavily-muscled badass to take over for Arnold as Conan in their upcoming remake of Conan the Barbarian
He may look like the bastard son of Alan Moore and Will Ferrell, but the man pictured to your right is actually the director of Conan, Nu Image/Millenium Films/Lionsgate reboot of the barbarian franchise
