After a super-successful Kickstarter campaign, a "Veronica Mars" movie is finally heading into production, and one of the series' stars, Chris Lowell, promises that however it manifests on screen, it won’t disappoint fans still loyal years after the show wrapped production in 2007.
"I think [show creator] Rob [Thomas is] gonna give the fans exactly the movie that they have paid for, literally," Chris told Hollywood Crush earlier this week. Mere hours after the Kickstarter campaign was launched back in March, it amassed $2 million and has since raised over $5.7 million. The movie adaptation of the cult-loved TV series is slated to begin production this summer.
Everyone who's anyone in Hollywood is currently in attendance across the pond at the Cannes Film Festival, which means that a) the wires are lighting up all day long with breezy, beautiful shots of various celebs chilling in the south of France, and b) we've spent all morning trying to make ourselves feel better about not being among them by eating an entire jar of Nutella whilst wearing a beret. (Except, ugh, it's not working and there's Nutella everywhere.) But we're still psyched to see this set of pics featuring the cast of "The Bling Ring," which is making a splash at the festival this year as the opening film in Un Certain Regard!
Emma Watson, Taissa Farmiga, and the other fresh young things from Sofia Coppola's latest were out and about for a photocall earlier today, all looking très chic indeed.
Emma was a stunner in a luxe burgundy dress with funky fringey details down the skirt and at the waist, while co-star Claire Jullen went for a summery vibe in white crochet. And throwing down for menswear was Israel Broussard, who adventurously layered up in a baby blue suit, space-dyed sweater and aqua dress shirt. The only look we aren't crazy about: Taissa's white dress, with its black sash and long mesh sleeves. Not that there's anything wrong with it, exactly, but we know from recent experience that she can do so much better.
FROM MTV MOVIES BLOG You'd think with all those brains they're constantly munching, zombies would be a little, well, smarter. I mean, why can't they speak? Are their palates and tongues too far decomposed? And why do I care so much? This is all really just to say that we have an EXCLUSIVE featurette from the forthcoming "Warm Bodies" DVD/Blu-ray (out June 4), in which stars Nicholas Hoult and Rob Corddry do a lot of not talking.
Click play on the clip above to watch all the grunting and groaning for yourself, plus hear commentary from Nicholas (yes, he does speak in real life!).
Is it getting hot in here? A month to the day after "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" trailer blazed at the MTV Movie Awards, a new poster for the dystopian sequel is burning up the internet (via The Hunger Games Instagram).
The one-sheet depicts Katniss Everdeen (played by Jennifer Lawrence) on the edge of a precipice (metaphor!), with signature bow and arrow in hand and a fluffy Mockingjay-shaped cloud at her back. The tagline atop the poster reads: "The sun persists in rising, so I make myself stand."
You know how sometimes two people in a romantic comedy will experience the most ridiculous, perfect, crazy convoluted meet-cute scenario—and you find yourself yelling and hurling heavy objects at the screen, because come on, nobody is that adorably bumbling-yet-witty in real life? Well, at long last, there's a movie out there that makes plausible every single one of those unlikely scenarios through the wonders of science fiction. Seriously, it explains everything! As does this fantabulous trailer for the upcoming movie "About Time," starring Domhnall Gleason and Rachel McAdams.
The premise is as follows: Domhnall (the cutie-pie ginger previously seen in "Never Let Me Go" and as an elder Weasley in the "Harry Potter" films) plays Tim, a guy with one whopper of a genetic legacy, which is that every dude in his family is gifted with time-traveling capabilities. As explained by his father, played by Bill Nighy, there are limits to said time-traveling; Bill-and-Ted-esque ability to drop in on the entirety of human history, not included. And Tim's use for this newfound skill? Going back to every botched romantic opportunity in his life, and basically doing them over in the style of Ryan Gosling. Which, you must admit, is smart...and would also explain a lot about Ryan Gosling, actually, now that we think about it. (Right?! OMG YOU GUYS. RYAN GOSLING IS FROM THE FUTURE.)
Remember last week when we relayed the rumor that "Anna Karenina" director Joe Wright was circling the big-screen adaptation of E.L. James' best-seller "Fifty Shades of Grey"? Well, that's all the chatter ended up being: a rumor.
Deadline reports that Joe does not have time in his schedule for a raunchy romp with billionaire Christian Grey and his naive paramour Anastasia Steele. And so, the list of Hollywood heavyweights who won't be involved with the project continues to grow.
We already knew Stephen Amell was out as Christian. And Emma Watson was out as Ana, as was Keira Knightley. And let's not even get started about the Angelina Jolie speculation.
Break out the beer and puppies: Today is Robert Pattinson's 27th birthday. Happy birthday, you hottie, you!
Now, just because the sun has set on Rob's "Twilight"-related duties, that doesn't mean his 27th year isn't going to be jam-packed. In fact, as he breaks away from the film franchise that made him a star, it seems directors can't get their hands on him fast enough. (Or maybe that's just us? We kid! Maybe...) With that in mind, let's take a look at Rob's upcoming year in the cinema.
First up is "The Rover," which Rob filmed earlier this year in the Australian Outback. The Brit stars as Reynolds, a man who's desperately searching for his stolen car and the valuable object left inside, in this near-future thriller. A first-look image from the film (featuring Guy Pearce) hit the web back in March, with the film tentatively slated for a 2013 release.
And, well, that's where the certainty ends, because the actor has no shortage of projects in various stages of pre-production.
Pssssst! Yo, froshies: If you want the top bunk at bloodsucking school, you'd better speak up now. The dorms at St. Vladimir's, the "Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters" elite educational institution for the befanged, are rapidly filling up, with a whopping four new casting announcements on the wire.
Deadline reports that Sami Gayle, Cameron Monaghan, Ashley Charles and Claire Foy have all joined the film, rounding out the cast in several key roles.
Like many of you, we here at MTV have a soft spot for "The Mortal Instruments" magic-doer Magnus Bane. (Perhaps it's because our names both start with the letter "M"?) And there are few things we love more than debuting EXCLUSIVE content featuring the glittered one, like first-look images and on-set interviews. So here we go again dishing up a hunky helping of the High Warlock of Brooklyn. Are you ready for it? (OF COURSE YOU ARE.)
Take a long, lusty look at this new character poster featuring Magnus, which boasts the tagline: "An instrument of chaos."
The August 23 release marks actor Godfrey Gao's American film debut, and he admitted to a few nerves during production when we visited him last year on the set.
Producers of the highly anticipated film version of John Green's "The Fault in Our Stars" are keeping the casting of their leading man all in the family...so to speak. Ansel Elgort—who plays Shailene Woodley's brother in her other YA-adapted project, "Divergent"—has been offered the role of her love interest, Augustus Waters, in the drama about two cancer patients who fall in love in support group. (This all according to Entertainment Weekly).
Now, before you raise an eyebrow, the people in charge say it's all good.
"We were all swept away by the humor, charm, and aching vulnerability Ansel brought to his portrayal of Gus," producer Wyck Godfrey told EW. "His performance completely annihilated our concerns about his playing Caleb in 'Divergent' with Shailene, and we are confident that the fans of 'Fault' will fall in love with him the same way that Hazel does–slowly, and then all at once."
