Watch Cory Monteith's Final Role As A Drug Addict In Upcoming Film

Cory Monteith in "McCanick"

While most Cory Monteith fans were used to seeing the actor as peppy "Finn" on Fox's "Glee," the 31-year-old actor's last role before his sudden death Saturday was far grittier.

In the cop drama "McCanick," Monteith plays Simon Weeks, a drug-addicted street hustler who is sent to prison for seven years on murder charges.

Monteith made it no secret that he struggled with addiction throughout his life.

The actor checked into rehab in March and told Parade just last month "I'm lucky to be alive" after taking "anything and everything" and having a "serious problem" as a teenager.

So when presented with the role of a drug addict, "McCanick" director Josh C. Waller tells the LA Times Monteith "didn't say it was a cathartic experience, but you could sense it."

"In my mind, I was envisioning a teeny little drug guy, but Cory Monteith is this tall, strapping man," the director recalled. "But when I met with him, he wanted to do it so badly...He was very vocal about his past, and said he wanted to tap into things from his youth that he hadn't been able to use as an actor yet."

The 15 Worst Movie Knock-Offs Ever Made

0
0

pacific rim atlantic rim

Last week Twitter went crazy over a SyFy Channel made-for-TV movie called "Sharknado."

The film was made by a small studio known as The Asylum.

Known for making extremely campy science-fiction and horror films involving monsters and aliens, the studio also makes knock-offs of blockbuster films, or "mockbusters," for companies like Redbox and Netflix.

Due to the way movies are released after they're in theaters, Redbox and Netflix aren't able to add them to their selections right away. To capitalize on the release of blockbusters while they're still fresh in the public's minds, the companies will order one of Asylum's similar-sounding movies in the hopes that people will be fooled.

These movies aren't just inspired by similar films. They often have titles that border on copyright infringement and are marketed with posters close enough to the original big-budget films that those who don't follow movie releases closely can be tricked into renting or downloading them.

Here's the trailer for "Atlantic Rim."

Get Excited For Spike Lee's Remake Of The Most Messed Up Korean Movie Ever

0
0

If you've seen the South Korean classic "Oldboy," then you know why people are excited for the Spike Lee-driven remake, out Oct. 23 this year.

The movie is about a man who wakes up one morning to find out he's been inexplicably abducted by unknown captors and trapped in a room that looks exactly like his own bedroom. For 20 years, his captors psychologically torture him through use of a television showing sound bites and headlines from the outside world. Then one day he wakes up in the middle of a field, free to go.

What follows is Oldboy blazing a (super twisted, super violent) path of revenge on his way to finding out one thing: who abducted me and why did they do it?

Chan-wook Park's original film combines the combat choreography of The Matrix, with the drive, tenacity, and darkness that's darker than that of Taken, with a dash of the comedy from Rumble in the Bronx.

Though Lee looks to have copied the cinematography, lost in translation may be the darkly sarcastic and goofy South Korean humor. We may not see Josh Brolin trolling around New York looking for a specific kind of pork dumpling — the only type of food fed to the captive in the original movie.

Either way, Spike Lee's new version of Oldboy promises to be an interesting ride.

Here's the trailer for the old one:

Now here's the trailer for the new one:

The First Trailer For WikiLeaks' Movie 'The Fifth Estate' Is Here

0
0

DreamWorks Pictures has released the first trailer for WikiLeaks movie "The Fifth Estate."

"Star Trek Into Darkness" and "Sherlock" star Benedict Cumberbatch plays WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

The film also stars Stanley Tucci, Daniel Brühl, and Laura Linney.

Here's the plot synopsis from DreamWorks:

"THE FIFTH ESTATE reveals the quest to expose the deceptions and corruptions of power that turned an Internet upstart into the 21st century’s most fiercely debated organization. The story begins as WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange (Benedict Cumberbatch) and his colleague Daniel Domscheit-Berg (Daniel Brühl) team up to become underground watchdogs of the privileged and powerful. On a shoestring, they create a platform that allows whistleblowers to anonymously leak covert data, shining a light on the dark recesses of government secrets and corporate crimes. Soon, they are breaking more hard news than the world’s most legendary media organizations combined. But when Assange and Berg gain access to the biggest trove of confidential intelligence documents in U.S. history, they battle each other and a defining question of our time: what are the costs of keeping secrets in a free society—and what are the costs of exposing them?"

"The Fifth Estate" opens in theaters October 18. 

Here are a few new photos from the film:

DreamWorks Animation's Next Movie About A Snail Is Trying To Capitalize Off 'Fast & Furious' Success

0
0

DreamWorks Animation's next animated movie "Turbo" is out today.

In one of two films out this weekend, Ryan Reynolds will play a snail with dreams to go fast.

If you have "Fast & Furious" meets snails in mind that's what DreamWorks Animation wants you to think.

In June, the film debut marketing to a phrase that pulls straight from Universal's successful film franchise.

"Fast & Furious 6" earned an unexpected $98.5 million opening weekend.

F&F star Michelle Rodriguez is also in "Turbo."

However, the hyped marketing may not help the film at all.

For one thing, Reynolds isn't as big of a draw as he once was. With two films out this weekend, IMDB's star track meter which ranks the current popularity among searches, places him at 65.

DreamWorks Animation shares fell 6 percent ahead of the film's release.

The snail film is expected to earn $22 million upon debut for the three-day weekend. For comparison, that  would be less than the company's Thanksgiving bomb, "Rise of the Guardians."

Its last flick, caveman-inspired "The Croods," earned nearly double opening weekend.

Check out the poster below:

SyFy Announces Twitter Contest To Name 'Sharknado' Sequel

sharknado

A "Sharknado" sequel was confirmed on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" on Tuesday, as was an online contest to determine the title.

Flying sharks invade New York City in the follow-up to Syfy's trashy thriller, which garnered 5,000 tweets per minute during its July 11 premiere.

Twitter users can tweet title entries to @SyfyMovies using the hashtag #Sharknado.

"Every once in a while, there is a perfect storm — on television. The fans are clamoring for a sequel. Or perhaps it will be a prequel," said Syfy's executive vice president of programming and original movies, Thomas Vitale, in a statement. "What we can guarantee is that 'Sharknado 2' will be lots of fun."

Produced by The Asylum, "Sharknado 2" (working title) is slated to premiere in 2014.

Here are some promising suggestions from the Twittersphere:

The Syfy announcement is on the heels of the network's trailer release for "Ghost Shark," in which a dead shark seeks revenge on the entire human race.

The backstory:"When Ava's father is brutally murdered, no one believes that the ghost shark got him — except the crazy lighthouse keeper Finch."

If you doubted it could get any better than that, know that the leading role of Ava is played by an all-grown-up, bikini-clad Mackenzie Rosman, who starred as Ruthie Camden in "7th Heaven."

"Ghost Shark" premieres August 22. Watch the awful trailer below:

comic con preview hunger games breaking bad godzilla

Suit up, entertainment enthusiasts.

San Diego Comic-Con kicks off Thursday, July 18, and this year's line-up has something for everyone.

What began in 1970 as a comic book convention that drew about 100 attendees, has morphed into a four-day celebration of all things pop culture-related.

Marvel, Fox, Sony, and Warner Bros. are slated to present some hotly anticipated superhero movie trailers, while "Breaking Bad,""Walking Dead," and "Dexter" fans can expect sneak peaks at these and other TV shows.

Out of all the panels, we've compiled what to be most excited for this year.

Panel highlights include appearances by Joss Whedon, Andrew Garfield ("The Amazing Spider-Man 2"), Harrison Ford ("Ender's Game"), Kristen Bell ("Veronica Mars" movie), Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul ("Breaking Bad"), and, rumor has it, Comic-Con newb Jennifer Lawrence ("Hunger Games: Catching Fire").

11. "Veronica Mars" cast reunion

The fan-funded film adaptation of "Veronica Mars" is still in production in Los Angeles, making a trailer debut unlikely.

But at Friday's panel, cast members Kristen Bell, Enrico Colantoni, Ryan Hansen, Jason Dohring, and others will spill behind-the-scenes stories about working together again.



10. "Dexter" series finale spoilers

The eighth and final season of the serial-killer drama "Dexter" is already airing on Showtime.

The panel — including Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter, and executive producers John Goldwyn and Sara Colleton — may address the spin-off buzz or rapid-fire twists expected in the remainder of the series end.



9. The "Amazing Spider Man 2" panel

Your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man will be front and center at Sony's presentation, also featuring panels for "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2" and the "Robocop" remake.

Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone return in the Spidey franchise reboot, joined by Jamie Foxx as Electro. Don't expect Shailene Woodley. Her introduction as Mary Jane Watson was slashed from the sequel.

The panel also includes director Marc Webb, who has been showing off plenty of teaser photos from the upcoming film.

Warner Bros. Totally Screwed Up The Marketing For 'Pacific Rim'

0
0

pacific rim

Warner Bros.' latest blockbuster hopeful "Pacific Rim" didn't perform as well as expected opening weekend.

The Guillermo del Toro monster versus robot epic came in third at the box office earning a paltry $38.3 million.

To put that number into perspective, it earned less than Warner Bros.' poorly-reviewed third installment of "The Hangover" ($41.6 million) and "The Great Gatsby" ($51 million).

That's not so great for a film reported to have a budget in the range of $185-$190 million.

So why didn't the robot movie pick up steam?

The problem with "Pacific Rim" wasn't that audiences didn't embrace it. In fact, audiences loved it, giving it an "A-" CinemaScore— in line with the rating of "Man of Steel."

Analysts initially expected the film to earn as low as $25 million, before bumping the number up to $40 million opening weekend.

CEO of Starlight Runner Entertainment Jeff Gomez tells Business Insider that in Hollywood's eyes del Toro's monster epic was always going to be a tough sell because it wasn't based on anything.

However, he doesn't agree with that. Instead, he sees the problem with "Pacific Rim" as something much simpler: the film's marketing strategy.

Most of the knowledge audiences had about the film after numerous trailers and Cinema-Con footage was that it was about monsters and robots going head to head in a rock 'em sock 'em fashion.

However, the film was about so much more than that, detailing a laborious on-going war affecting the planet for years.

Rinko kikuchi pacific rim"Warner Bros. should have marketed 'Pacific Rim' as if the narrative in the movie had been going on for years and years," says Gomez. "Market this film as if it was an established property, as if it has been going on, and as if it has been popular and has already connected with the audience."

Gomez says Warner Bros. and Legendary missed the opportunity of familiarizing people with a large story world and the characters inside it to generate more buzz around the figures and plot.

"Even when characters are put front and center — there were tiny aspects of the campaign that featured Idris Elba —  they came across as or very broad or smashing each other in the face with sticks," says Gomez. "That's too bad because of all the films that have come out this spring and summer, there is a warmth to the characters in 'Pacific Rim' and a heroism you don't even see in 'Man of Steel' and "Iron Man 3.'"

"These guys genuinely care about human beings and will do anything to protect them," he adds. "They sacrifice their lives to protect large numbers of people and they're not flippant or callous about it ... that's wonderful compared to the relative coldness and grimness on tragedy that some of the other big movies have been concentrating on."

Pacific Rim Graphic Novel

One thing many probably didn't know was that a month prior to the release of "Pacific Rim," Warner Bros. and Legendary attempted doing just this.

They released a prequel graphic novel entitled "Pacific Rim: Tales From Year Zero."

The story was centered around the first monster attack on Earth focusing on backstories of some of the major characters in the film. 

While this may have been helpful to gain attention for the flick, Gomez points out Warner Bros. missed the mark on expanding upon this more.

"A comic book only reaches tens of thousands of people," says Gomez. "I have no doubt that a more unorthodox, a more Vanguard approach to the marketing of the film would have generated a broader interest and bigger initial numbers."

'Sharknado' Writer Says The Film's Success Was 'Surreal' And 'Overwhelming'

0

sharknado

Earlier this week, SyFy announced there will be a "Sharknado" sequel on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon."

The made-for-TV film brought in little more than 1.3 million viewers, but generated a lot of buzz on Twitter, racking in 600,000 tweets upon its debut July 11.

We spoke with writer Thunder Levin — yes, that's his real name — to hear more about the "Sharknado" phenomenon and its impending sequel.

"Being on Twitter during the broadcast reminded me of going to opening night of 'Snakes on a Plane,'" says Levin. "The audience I saw it with, they were shouting out lines and all sorts of comments and they were throwing popcorn at the screen. They were having a great time with it. That's sort of what we were hoping for. That's what happened, but in a virtual sense."

"It was just overwhelming, surreal, amazing, ridiculous," adds Levin. "Every time I would look down at the computer to type a tweet, I would look back up and there were 200 more that came in."

Overall, it is estimated "Sharknado" received 5,000 tweets per minute. 

"I can't help but wonder if this is an indicator of things to come and if it's a new way to measure the success of a piece of entertainment," he adds.

Right now, all we know about "Sharknado 2" is that it's set to take place in Manhattan. 

Levin suggests SyFy should go all out with an appearance on the big screen for the even bigger sequel. 

"You put more money into it, and you do it for a theatrical release," says Levin. "And, if we're going to do that, let's go back to the classic action movies like "The Towering Inferno" and 'Airplane!' They have lots of great cameos and kill them off — very quickly — so you don't have to pay much."

In a recent Reddit Ask Me Anything, director Anthony C. Ferrante and producer Devin Ward confirmed the original cost near $1 million to make.

So, who would star in this production? 

"I would hope that they would bring back members of the original cast," says Levin. "I was certainly impressed with Ian Ziering. I think he really reinvented himself as an action star." 

Sharknado Tara ReidWe asked Levin if could tap any talent in Hollywood who he would want to see in the follow-up.

"Who would I love to see? Harrison Ford and George Clooney," says Levin. "You know who I think would be perfect? Steven Spielberg and we could have a shark eat him. You know, 'cause he started all this." 

Many celebrities were very vocal about "Sharknado," so it may not be so difficult to gain interest in a big-name cameo.

Among the SyFy film's enthusiasts is "Lost" co-creator and writer Damon Lindelof who expressed interest in writing the sequel.  

Levin tells us he briefly heard from Lindelof and asked if he was willing to meet but hasn't heard back since. 

Currently, SyFy is holding a contest on Twitter asking fans to come up with the title of the next film.

Ideas have ranged from Sharkacane to Sharknado takes Manhattan.

Levin has a suggestion of his own.

"I saw a few of them," says Levin. "Because they want it to be in New York, I would go with 'Sharknado 2: Live On Broadway.'"

Dead Cops And Evil Spirits Hope To Scare Up Audiences — Here's What's In Theaters This Weekend

0

Expect ghosts, more ghosts, and a Bruce Willis sequel this weekend at theaters.

As of yesterday, Warner Bros.' horror flick "The Conjuring" is the top film viewers want to see for the weekend, according to Fandango, with "Red 2" not far behind. 

Things aren't looking as good for Ryan Reynold's likely-to-bomb, "R.I.P.D."

Also hitting theaters this weekend: DreamWork Animation's "Turbo,"— again featuring Reynolds — and "Only God Forgives," starring the other Ryan ... Gosling.

In a new Friday series, here's what's worth seeing this weekend, and those you should skip. 

1. "The Conjuring"

the conjuring

Estimated Budget: $20 million
Opening Weekend Outlook:$30 million
Critics:84% say go

Two paranormal investigators (Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga) pay a visit to a New England farmhouse where a dark presence terrorizes the family living there. It's based on a true story.

Directed by James Wan ("Saw"), "The Conjuring" sticks to old-school scare tactics, in the best way possible.

The A-list cast delivers unsettling performances that outweigh the few horror tropes.

Consensus: See it

 

2. "Red 2"

red 2

Estimated Budget: N/A (The first installment cost a moderate $58 million.)
Opening Weekend Outlook:$17-20 million ("Red" grossed $21 million domestically.)
Critics:36% say go

The baby boomers are back, and pinned against "R.I.P.D."— also starring an old timer, Jeff Bridges — in its opening weekend.

CIA field agent Frank Moses (Bruce Willis) is yanked from retirement when his wacky ex-partner (John Malkovich) discovers a plot to take them out. Frank reunites his motley crew of operatives — new girlfriend (Mary-Louise Parker), old flame (Catharine Zeta-Jones), and an elite British assassin (Helen Mirren) — to track down a missing portable nuclear device.

Supporting cast and Academy Award winners Zeta-Jones, Mirren, and Anthony Hopkins breathe some class into the action flick, but can only do so much to elevate a film that feels like a remake of the first with more explosives and car chases.

Consensus: Walk, don't run

 

3. "Girl Most Likely"

kristen wiig girl most likely

Estimated Budget: N/A
Opening Weekend Outlook: N/A
Critics:16% say go

In "Bridesmaids," Kristen Wiig played a downer character in career and love-life squalor, but we hardly hated her for it.

Funny lady Wiig loses audience sympathy as a vapid New Yorker who's shipped off to live with her quirky family in New Jersey after staging a fake suicide to win her boyfriend back.

An all-star cast of Annette Bening, Matt Dillon, and Darren Criss play characters too uninteresting to make up for Wiig's lack of likeability.

Consensus: It pains me to say it — pass

 

4. "R.I.P.D."

r.i.p.d. ripd jeff bridges ryan reynolds

Estimated Budget: $130 million
Opening Weekend Outlook: $13 million
Critics: 11% say go

A recently slain cop (Ryan Reynolds) joins a team of undead police officers working for the Rest in Peace Department whose mission is to serve and protect the living from creatures who refuse to move peacefully to the other side. 

Jeff Bridges gives a tired macho man performance that you've seen before, and the second-rate special effects are more distracting than mind-blowing.

Consensus: This film is D.O.A.

Why Harrison Ford Has Complete Faith In J.J. Abrams Reviving 'Star Wars'

harrison ford comic conThe Force is strong with J.J. Abrams, according to "Star Wars" actor Harrison Ford.

In an interview with MTV News, Ford said he has complete faith in Abrams' ability to revive the "Star Wars" saga.

"I think he's a great storyteller," Ford said. "He's developed an enormous filmmaking skill. I think it's a daunting project, and he's the kind of guy that can take on huge challenges and deliver."

"Star Wars: Episode VII," directed and produced by Abrams, is set to release in 2015.

Original cast members Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fischer, and Billy Dee Williams are rumored to return.

It's not the first time the A-list duo has worked together. Ford starred in the drama "Regarding Henry," which Abrams wrote and debuted when he was 25. More recently, Abrams produced the talk show comedy "Morning Glory," starring Ford, Diane Keaton, and Rachel McAdams.

Disney tapped Abrams, whose other production credits include "LOST,""Super 8," "Revolution," and the revamped "Star Trek" franchise, to direct "Episode VII" after it bought LucasFilm in 2012.

After first dodging interview questions about the epic sci-fi reboot, Ford had some fun with the host.

"[Abrams is] an awful nice guy. ... Really happy that he's involved in the movie, even if I'm not," Ford said with an exaggerated wink.

superman batman crossover

Holy sequels, Batman.

Warner Bros. surprised everyone at Comic-Con today announcing a Batman / Superman movie in 2015.

"Man of Steel" actor Harry Lennix opened the panel quoting a line from Frank Miller's 1989 comic "The Dark Knight Returns" in which Bats says the iconic line:

"I want you to remember, Clark, in all the years to come. In all your private moments. I want you to remember my hand at your throat. I want you to remember, the one man who beat you."

"Man of Steel" director Zack Snyder then took the stage revealing the following logo:

batman superman logo

Watch the announcement below:

According to a press release from Warner Bros., the dynamic team of David S. Goyer, Christopher Nolan, and Snyder will join forces again to bring Supes and the new Batman to the big screen.

Here's the statement released from Warner Bros.

On the heels of the worldwide success of "Man of Steel," director Zack Snyder is bringing together the two greatest Super Heroes of all time—Batman and Superman—for the first time on the big screen. The announcement was made today by Greg Silverman, President, Creative Development and Worldwide Production, and Sue Kroll, President, Worldwide Marketing and International Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures.

The current hit, "Man of Steel," has taken in more than $630 million at the worldwide box office to date, and climbing. Along with its star, Henry Cavill, the upcoming film brings back Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane. The new Batman has yet to be cast.

Snyder is co-writing the story with David S. Goyer, who will then pen the screenplay. Production is expected to begin in 2014, with an anticipated release date in Summer 2015.

Silverman stated, "Zack Snyder is an incredibly talented filmmaker, but beyond that, he's a fan first and he utterly gets this genre. We could not think of anyone better suited to the task of bringing these iconic Super Heroes to the screen in his own way." Kroll added, "We are thrilled to be back in business with Zack and his team on this next movie. The success of ‘Man of Steel' is a wonderful testament to the love and support that both fans and new audiences, worldwide, have for these characters. We are very excited to see what Zack has in store for all of us."

Diane Nelson, President, DC Entertainment, noted, "Superman and Batman together on the big screen is a dream come true for DC fans everywhere. All of us at DC Entertainment could not be more excited for Zack's continuing vision for the DC Universe."

Zack Snyder, who made a surprise appearance at Comic-Con today, breaking the news to audiences there, later said, "I'm so excited to begin working again with Henry Cavill in the world we created, and I can't wait to expand the DC Universe in this next chapter. Let's face it, it's beyond mythological to have Superman and our new Batman facing off, since they are the greatest Super Heroes in the world."

The new film brings back Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder as producers. This time, Christopher Nolan and Emma Thomas are serving as executive producers, along with Benjamin Melniker and Michael E. Uslan.

Thomas offered, "Whilst our ‘Dark Knight' trilogy is complete, we have every confidence that Zack's fresh interpretation will take the character in a new and exciting direction. His vision for Superman opened the door to a whole new universe and we can't wait to see what Zack does with these characters."

The film is based on Superman characters created by Jerry Siegel & Joe Shuster, and Batman characters created by Bob Kane, published by DC Entertainment.

Whedon announced the plot for the 2015 film will follow the "Age of Ultron" comic series. 

The full title for the movie will be "Avengers: Age of Ultron."

Ultron, in the comic universe, is a homicidal robot that has menaced the Avengers since its debut in 1968. The robot was the primary villain in a 2013 comic book crossover also called Age Of Ultron (the cover of issue one is below).

The "Age of Ultron" is a limited comic series from this year revolving around a New York in ruins dominated by artificial intelligence robot Ultron. The comics join Spider-Man, Wolverine, and the Fantastic Four with The Avengers group.

Earlier at Comic-Con Vin Diesel hinted that his appearance in a future Marvel film was all but sealed. 

Diesel said to expect "some very big news" at the end of the month.

In June, Disney and Marvel announced Robert Downey Jr. will return for both "Avengers 2" and "Avengers 3."

"Avengers: Age of Ultron" comes to theaters May 1, 2015.
