If you read a headline today about how much Tommy Lee Jones hated working with Jim Carrey in Batman Forever and thought it sounded familiar, that’s because you’ve definitely heard this one before. Back in 2014, Carrey made an appearance on Howard Stern’s show, where he revealed that the famously prickly Jones was extra-prickly on the set of Joel Schumacher’s notorious Batman sequel. Apparently Carrey still isn’t over it because he re-told the story on this week’s episode of Norm Macdonald Live. In honor (?) of Carrey’s inability to just let this one go already, here are 20 more co-stars who really couldn’t stand working together.
It doesn’t take much to imagine what a Christopher Nolan war film might be like — epic, visually stunning, and supremely intense. Dunkirk seemingly checks off all of those boxes and then some in the first full-length trailer for Nolan’s highly-anticipated new film, a historical period drama that looks surprisingly claustrophobic given the open setting. Featuring an excellent ensemble of stars (including Tom Hardy and Mark Rylance), Dunkirk doesn’t feel like your average summer film, which has us all the more excited to see it in July.
If you thought American Horror Story promos were bats— crazy, Tom Hardy has something seriously Taboo to show you. FX has come up with not one, but four new promos of the star-studded Ridley Scott miniseries, and they’re … uh … well, the word “nightmaresplosion” comes to mind.
What happens when you let Christopher Nolan make a World War II drama? That’s more of a rhetorical question than anything, but just in case you need an answer, the first teaser for Dunkirk has arrived. Although brief, Nolan’s latest film looks every bit as gorgeous and intense as we imagined — maybe even more. As if we weren’t already tired of this disappointing summer movie season, Dunkirk just gives us another reason to think that 2017 can’t get here fast enough.
How good does a movie have to look to offset its other deficiencies? The Revenant is as beautiful a movie as has ever been made. The photography by master cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki is inconceivably gorgeous; sweeping wide shots that juxtapose tiny, insignificant men against the overwhelming grandeur of nature, close-ups so intimate they seem like invasions of the actors’ privacy, and action sequences of shocking violence.
If you’re already looking ahead and wondering what movies will wind up with Oscar nominations in early 2016, you should start paying close attention to The Revenant. The new trailer for the Leonardo DiCaprio wilderness revenge thriller has arrived and, wow, is it beautiful.
It was so cold when Leonardo DiCaprio filmed Alejandro G. Iñárittu’s upcoming explorer epic The Revenant that the below-zero temperatures have already created a load of controversy for the film. “I was cold basically every day, especially my hands,” DiCaprio told Entertainment Weekly, adding that an on-set warming machine was his “savior.”
It’s been almost 30 years since the last Mad Max movie (Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome) hit theaters in 1985, and almost ever since then director George Miller has been working on a sequel. That sequel, Mad Max: Fury Road, has been in the works for over 25 years and started filming over three years ago. In the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, we take a look at Fury Road. It’s time to remember The Road Warrior. The man we called “Max”…
“This is a movie that strains at the leash of the possible, a movie of great visionary wonders.” That lovely sentence concluded Roger Ebert’s 1985 review of Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. Thirty years later, Mad Max is finally back in a new sequel, Mad Max: Fury Road, and Ebert’s words feel truer than ever. Fury Road is an incredible achievement, one that strains so hard at the leash of the possible that it eventually breaks free and barrels headlong into the realm of insane genius. Forget Max Rockatansky; director George Miller, the guy who co-conceived and shot this gorgeous, glorious lunacy, is the true madman here. And the true hero for having pulled it off.
