BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
As you can see above, the clip in question is more like a Saturday Night Live sketch than anything else. It features Fallon talking about how dancing has been banned at The Tonight Show, much to the annoyance of the crowd.
6 Miranda Drive follows a family who picks up a heinous souvenir while on a family vacation to the Grand Canyon. Rather than a lame t-shirt or some regrettable seashell art, they accidentally bring home a fear-feeding supernatural force that will make their lives hell.
As remakes go, Footloose did a fine job of capturing the spirit of the original film, and also managed to boost the dancing to match the talent movie-goers have come to expect thanks to movies like the Step Up series. Kevin Bacon, who starred as Ren McCormack in the original film, weighed in on the remake and it looks as though the new Footloose is now Bacon-approved.
If we've learned anything from the movie world in 2011, it's that Kevin Bacon is still quite awesome. Between Super and X-Men: First Class he has shown that he still has the skills that made him a star and also plays a pretty damn good villain. Hopefully he'll take what he learned from those films and apply it to his newest gig.
There will be 13 deleted scenes on the First Class DVD, according to the BBFC’s site. Just don’t expect a lot more insight into the finished product, as the site says all 13, collectively, will run just under 14 minutes and reportedly would revolve around Rose Byrne’s character Moira MacTaggart and her relationship with James McAvoy’s Charles Xavier.
Color me excited. Thornton has sadly been labeled as the go-to guy when you need someone to play a foul-mouthed asshole, but his early career shows that he really is capable of a lot more. This is a pretty awesome cast that Thornton has set up, and I can only hope that Duvall and Hurt play patriarchs of their respective families and get to go head-to-head. The potential here is endless.
Crazy Stupid Love follows Steve Carell's character who's just been cheated on by his wife. Devastated and prone to crying spells at work, he meets and befriends a suave and sophisticated lady's man played by Ryan Gosling who shows him the ropes. Together they hit the town, carousing and picking up women, at least until Carell starts realizing his wife might still be the right one and Gosling starts realizing the new girl he's met might be more than a one night stand
While chatting up Insidious, Byrne took the time to update us on the new X-Men film, her experience making it, her affection for how universal the X-Men world is, and even her plans for potential sequels. Check it all out in the video clip below
What happens when Rainn Wilson plays a superhero? About what you’d expect. The new trailer for Super contains that obligatory scene where a middle-aged man wanders through a comic book store pulling titles off the shelf, acting amazed that there are these things called “superheroes”
It's our first look at the interior of the Hellfire Club, described as the headquarters of "the decadent mutant bastards" led by Shaw and his go-to girl, January Jones's Emma Frost. Both are standing in the middle of the mirrored, blue-lit room in the image, which you can see below
Everyone is buzzing over the Batman news that’s been circulating today, but there is other big news from a rival comic production company. X-Men: First Class has been in the news this
There's very little not to like about Kevin Bacon. In addition to having a last name that also happens to be the most delicious food in the world, he's a great actor and, seemingly, a really good guy, But do you know who
The TIFF Midnight Madess crowd ate it up when I saw it last night, but I suspect they had the same experience I did of coming home and realizing how much of the film didn't work once all the pieces were in place
Though he isn't directing the film, Bryan Singer is still very much involved with the production of X-Men: First Class. In addition to serving as producer for the Matthew Vaughn superhero
Platt will reportedly not be playing a mutant, and given that his character's name for now is The Man in Black and he's played by Oliver Platt, there's pretty much zero chance he won't be playing a villain
This is surprising, if only because Shaw isn’t exactly one of the seminal villains of the X-Men universe. There are plenty of bigger, more interesting bad guy names in their rogue’s gallery
Bacon would be the oldest cast member by far, so use that one bit of information to handle speculation until we get some official news on this
The idea is apparently for this movie to be much less comedic than the usual Steve Carell fodder, and it will be interesting to see how Kevin Bacon fits in overall
You probably don’t know who Craig Brewer is. If you did, then odds are he wouldn’t be stuck directing Footloose, he’d be making more incredible, original movies like Black Snake Moan or Hustle & Flow. But you didn’t show up to see those
Pinkaew will be working with Djimon Hounsou and Kevin Bacon to bring Kevin Bernhardt’s screenplay to life. Hounsou plays a mercenary and Bacon an old friend with questionable motives. Filming kicks off in Thailand on March 8th.
