Snipers are awesome.

Sniper movies, despite having pretty much the most cinematic and dramatic subject matter possible, often fall far short of their expectations. They’re generally just a little cut-rate, featuring Mark Wahlberg when they should feature Christian Bale…that sort of thing. Well, American Sniper looks like it could buck that trend. It’s directed by Clint Eastwood and features Bradley Cooper as the titular American sniper.

The trailer makes it look more in the ilk of Jarhead than the more action-oriented sniper films, which is just fine by us. Also, it should have shots where the gun goes off, but you don’t hear anything, you’re just looking through the crosshairs, and you see a guy’s head explode silently. That’s just good cinematography.

Why Has A Film Starring Jennifer Lawrence And Bradley Cooper Been Sitting On The Shelf For Two Years? http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/why-has-a-film-starring-jennifer-lawrence-and-bradley-cooper-been-sitting-on-the-shelf-for-two-years/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/why-has-a-film-starring-jennifer-lawrence-and-bradley-cooper-been-sitting-on-the-shelf-for-two-years/#comments Wed, 17 Sep 2014 22:16:30 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=265192 Because 'Serena' makes no sense according to those who have seen it.

Two and a half years ago, Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper were household names, but they hadn’t quite reached the peak of their popularity, which probably occurred during that Hunger Games/Silver Linings Playbook era. But they had worked together — on a little film called Serena that follows Cooper and Lawrence in a depression-era period piece that tracks Lawrence’s character’s dissociation from reality.

Serena doesn’t sound like much fun, and those who have seen the film (there have been three edits) say that it really doesn’t make much sense the way it’s cut. So, the film stays on the shelf until next spring, when a distributor will release it in the United States, to very little fanfare.

If you’re dying to see this thing, you can fly to the UK, where it will make its global premiere at the London Film Festival on October 13. However, based on the anecdotal evidence, you might be better served spending that money on a few hundred bottles of wine and a DVD copy of American Hustle.

Review: ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/review-guardians-of-the-galaxy/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/review-guardians-of-the-galaxy/#comments Fri, 01 Aug 2014 16:42:24 +0000 Jared Jones http://www.screenjunkies.com/?post_type=video&p=263643 Guardians of the Galaxy can best be described as a two-hour montage set to a 1970's Jock Jams mixtape (and that's a good thing).

The post Review: ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ appeared first on Screen Junkies.

By Jared Jones

It’s rather fitting that Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy would be the first film I’d review for Screen Junkies, as it’s a movie that seems damn near impossible to critique. Sure, Guardians adheres to many of the conventions we’ve come to expect from a comic book movie (dead parents, cryptically-introduced characters who speak entirely in exposition, etc.), and betrays most of its plot conventions before they are even established, but its absolute refusal to take itself seriously doesn’t exactly open the door for criticism.

Of course, then you see a wisecracking racoon unleash a barrage of machine gun fire while riding on the back of a talking treebeast, and you nearly pass out from the deluge of blood that rushes from your head to your nerd boner.

Guardians of the Galaxy can best be described as a two-hour montage set to a 1970′s Jock Jams mixtape, complete with some of the most intense and plain beautiful CGI your puny eyes may ever gaze upon. It’s the kind of movie Pete Hammond would describe as an “uproarious, fun-filled thrill ride!” while sucking on the taint of whatever PR firm had hired him to write it. For once, his blatant hyperbole would be accurate.

The story is a rather familiar one in terms of comic book adaptations: Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) is abducted by a gang of intergalactic mercenaries (led by the always delightful Michael Rooker) after watching his mother succumb to cancer, and twenty some-odd years later, he is roaming the galaxy as a common, if wickedly inventive thief. That is, until he stumbles upon the Infinity Stone capable of destroying entire civilizations (DUN-DUN-DUN!) and is forced to band together with a crew of misfits and miscreants in order to save the galaxy. Yadda yadda yadda hijinks ensue.

But yes, back to the CGI. As someone who has always preferred his world-building to take place in our actual world, even I must admit that Guardians was able to create the kind of exceptionally detailed, fully realized CGI-scapes that make paying the extra $10 for 3D glasses worth it. Not that I have to, being a fancy film critic that I am now and all (*spins bow tie*). The post-opening credits scene, which sees Quill a.k.a “Star Lord” shimmy his way across a barren planet to steal the Casket of Ancient Winters/Tesseract/whatever, was the highlight for me in that regard. The whole sequence plays out like a steampunk take on the 1912 Utah opening from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, and if you can’t get into that, the door is right over there.

That said, the inevitable success of Guardians will ultimately (and rightfully) be attributed to its cast and the witty repartee they develop. Marvel movies — and really, any comic book adaptation — only shine when they opt for the absurdist route, in my opinion, and director James Gunn‘s script never once pauses to talk about “destiny” or “fate” or whatever hackneyed cliches often punctuate comic book faire. A gravel-voiced Christian Bale speaking in platitudes about the moral weight that comes with being a cape-wearing crime fighter? I fart in your general direction, sir. A gravel-voiced Dave Bautista discussing his inability to understand metaphor? I’ll take two, please.

*Every* character in Guardians is the comic relief, Zoe Saldana‘s somewhat flat Gamora excluded, and that’s what makes the movie such a fun, effortless experience to watch. That, and the breakneck pace at which the film itself moves, because good God, does this flick hustle information past you like an irritated flight attendant on a frat bro-filled plane to Spring Break, Cancun. But on top of it all, Guardians of the Galaxy is just funny, plain and simple. Who would’ve guessed that a WWE star not named The Rock has legitimate comedic timing, or that Vin Diesel repeating the same line of dialogue over and over and over again would never not be hilarious? Spoiler alert: Bautista kills it, and I want a baby Groot-sized potted plant on my desk ASAP.

If I could lob one legitimate criticism at Guardians, it would be that of its villains. As I’ve noticed in more and more blockbuster action movies to come out in recent years, Guardians in the Galaxy would like you to believe that its bad guys — mainly, the Vader-esque Ronan — are all-powerful, menacing, genocidal killers, yet it never really commits to that narrative or establishes what exactly is motivating them (other than the classic standby of “world destruction”). Ronan and his cronies are merely blips on the radar who pop up when needed to cause a little mayhem, but they never really give the impression that they possess the destructive power that warrants the fear they instill.

Guardians’ PG-13 rating is most likely to blame for the movie’s lack of any real stakes or sense of impending doom, and I guess that’s forgivable. But just once, I’d like to see a quote unquote “popcorn flick” have the balls to actually commit to decisions it makes. If you’re going to kill off a character, kill off a character. If you’re going to have one character betray another, maybe establish a relationship between the two that last more than 30 seconds to give said betrayal some actual gravitas.

It’s a minor complaint in an otherwise glowing review, but something Marvel should maybe consider when developing Guardians of the Galaxy 2-8. Oh, did you not know that this movie is going to a box office juggernaut greenlit for a sequel by night’s end? Or that Chris Pratt is probably the next king of the box office? Because yeah, that’s all about to happen.

Grade: B+

The earlier trailers for Guardians of the Galaxy leaned on half-cooked jokes and an obscure ’70′s pop soundtrack. All of that gets thrown out in this new international trailer to reveal that, hey, this thing looks like it could be pretty good. With a more epic soundtrack and scenes that highlight a heavy dose of action, this looks like the most fun movie we’ll see this summer.

We’re also given our best introduction to Rocket Raccoon (as voiced by Bradley Cooper) and learn that he’s a real wise-cracker. He’s their Chandler.

You have to be careful what you say on British radio. During an appearance on The Stephen Merchant Show, Louis C.K. shared his view that audience members who ask questions on Inside The Actor’s Studio will never go on to fame. “There’s no way you ask Sean Penn a question and then you’re going to be huge,” he said while obviously not taking into account Bradley Cooper’s hypnotic blue eyes.

As the video above puts together, the universe is a large, strange place that will slap you in the face if you dare to defy it. Much like James Lipton.

Spoiler alert: Armstrong falls from grace, having mortgaged everything valuable in his life to become the best for a really, really long time. Bradley Cooper will be producing Red Blooded American (movie studios hate hyphens for marketing purposes), and is in talks to play either the man himself or Tyler Hamilton, a whistleblower on the US cycling team who gave a pretty damning account of what goes on to 60 Minutes.

There’s a sense of urgency with this project, as it’s competing against three or so other big Lance Armstrong films, and because this isn’t a film about asteroids or volcanoes, there can probably be only one, so the early bird gets the box office worm.

Todd Phillips promised that the final chapter in The Hangover trilogy wouldn’t follow the same beats and conceit of its predecessors and he’s a man of his word.

The latest trailer for The Hangover Part III lays out the film’s plot. After Alan goes off his meds, the guys take a road trip to deliver him to a rehab facility. However, they’re hijacked by gangsters on the hunt for Mr. Chow while en route. That leads to a global hunt and probably male nudity.

Thus I’m happy to present the first teaser trailer for this summer’s biggest comedy. Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis,Ed Helms, and some form of exotic animal return to have crazy adventures with Las Vegas gangsters one more time.

David O. Russell is putting together a film about Abscam, a large sting operation that involved politicians, foreign nationals, law enforcement, and some generally unsavory folks. And he’s titling it American Bullshit. That sounds like fun, right?

Well, this thing has gradually gone from good to great with the likes of Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams, Louie C.K., Jeremy Renner, and most recently, Jennifer Lawrence.

It’s hard not to get excited about this cast, director, and premise, which is exactly why Mark Wahlberg is checking his phone like a a fourteen year-old Asian girl, wondering if he’s in a dead cell zone or something because there has to be a good reason why Russell hasn’t called him yet.

This time, Bradley Cooper comes along for the ride to play the young cop/dad who tracks and parallels Gosling’s young robber/dad.

All in all, it looks like it could be a compelling film. Much more effective now that they’ve changed the name from Stuff Hanging From Ryan Gosling’s Mouth.

Audiences were disappointed when The Hangover Part II followed the formula of the original, essentially transplanting the plot points to Thailand. Director Todd Phillips has stated before that the third and final film in the series will buck tradition and tell it’s own tale. Now, he’s revealed the basic idea behind the film.

The Hangover Part III is Alan’s story,” Phillips told Entertainment Weekly about Zach Galifianakis’s character. “He’s going through a crisis after the death of his father, [and] the Wolfpack is all he has.” Without saying too much, he also reveals the third film “brings the group together when something from the first movie comes back to haunt them.”

We’ll just have to wait patiently to see what kind of exotic animal this story will involve.

Much like Shia LaBeouf, we all knew there’d be another Hangover. Now Bradley Cooper has confirmed it. He’s also confirmed that nobody was happy with the formulaic approach to The Hangover II and that the third entry won’t serve up such a recognizable storyline. He tells TV host Graham Norton:

“I hope we’ll start shooting next September. I know (director) Todd Phillips is working on the script. We stuck to the formula in the second one but the third would need to close the trilogy. I think it’ll take place in L.A. and not adhere to the structure.”

I don’t know. Can we believe him that we’ll be entertained in a fresh and original way? The man is an actor after all. He’s paid to make believe. This could just be one huge misdirect tailored to trick us into buying tickets for another chapter. Then again… those eyes. They’re so deep. I feel like I can see into his soul. It’s warm and honest there. (National Ledger)

Bradley Cooper was named People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive today. And deservedly so, as he’s a tremendously sexy man. It’s a shame that People has such a stranglehold on declaring who is the sexiest of all living men. Thus we are forced to find other titles to bestow upon celebrities who couple their talents with looks. We could go the “sexiest woman” route, but that’s a little Maxim-y for our tastes.

Rather than tread well-worn territory or lower ourselves to the standards of some puerile magazine, we thought we’d address the elephant in the room: the sexiest men not alive. As best we can tell, this hasn’t been done before, and if it has, we’re gonna do it better.

These guys are so hot it makes me want to take Bradley Cooper and kill him just so he can join this list.

Bernie

This corpse has a quiet confidence that really resonates with people. That, coupled with his sharp, island casual attire makes him a shoo-in for this shortlist. Granted, mustaches were not at the height of fashion when Weekend at Bernie’s came out, but he owned that look in a way that no one had since Tom Selleck. I wonder what Bernie’s up to now?

Probably still dead and rotting is my guess.

Eric Northman

I don’t know if vampires are technically “undead,” and I don’t want to get into a whole big thing about it with the nerd police, so let’s just say that vampires are “not alive,” shall we? Yeah, we shall.

For someone who’s hundreds of years old, True Blood’s Eric Northman looks uh-mazing. To put it in perspective, Michael Douglas is 67 and alive. Have you seen Michael Douglas with his shirt off recently? He looks like shit. Northman is like ten times as old and he looks great. Always taking time to comb his hair and do jackknife sit-ups has really paid off for this vampire.

The post These 6 Movie Characters Will Steal Your Girlfriend appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
Living in LA, you learn to keep your guard up if your girlfriend or date takes up with an actor. There are rules. First of all, don’t let your girlfriend talk to famous people that are richer and better-looking than you are. However, remember you live in LA, where almost everyone is some combination of more famous/richer/better looking than you. Then move to rule two. Rule two is: Insert yourself into their conversation so that the actor in question knows that you’re her boyfriend and your girlfriend knows that you’re on to her game. It sure as hell won’t change anything, but when they leave together, you’ll sleep easie knowing that you did everything you could.

Well, that’s the real world. Now imagine going up against fictional characters. They’re shrewder and better-looking than real people. You might as well start sobbing now. And keep your girlfriend the hell away from these guys.

6. Aldous Snow – Forgetting Sarah Marshall/Get Him to the Greek

Mr. Snow (Russell Brand) may be the biggest jackass on this list (and this list is rife with jackasses), but he has a very endearing, naïve quality that allows him to steal any woman he wants. He’s pretty much two-for-two, having stolen the titular Sarah Marshall from Jason Segel’s Peter Bretter and banged Jonah Hill’s gf in a bizarre threesome in Get Him to the Greek. If your girlfriend has a pulse and 51% of her limbs, then she’s fair game for Snow.

5. Glenn Guglia – The Wedding Singer

While we don’t see anyone lose their girlfriend to Julia’s fiancé in The Wedding Singer, it’s a foregone conclusion that he will throw back some Alabama Slammers and have his way with her. He’s also the least likely on this list to take “no” for an answer.

I think we all wish that he has taken Robbie’s (Adam Sandler) advice midway through the film and had a few drinks, then driven home.

4. Wooderson – Dazed and Confused

It’s nothing personal. It’s the Wooderson (Matthew McConaughey) way. If (when) Wooderson went after m high school girlfriend, I don’t even think I’d be mad. I’d be all, “That’s our Wooderson! It’s what he does! Psssh! Scoundrel!”

Frankly, if you take issue with your lady sleeping with a mustachioed, toe-headed Matthew McConaughey, just keep her the hell away from him and his moon tower keggers. It’s not like he’s playing his hand close to the vest.

It boils down to this: If Wooderson gets close enough to your girl to bang her, it’s your own damn fault. Seriously. It’s f*ckin’ Wooderson.

Hollywood’s most Goth actor, Bradley Cooper, has decided he will not play the role he was born for. The Hangover star has walked from The Crow due to schedule conflicts — he has David O. Russell‘s Silver Linings Playbook this fall and Paradise Lost after that. Relativity is eager to get this Crow thing shooting with director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo so they have chosen to recast.

But what other actor in Hollywood could be so totally wrong for the role?

Mark Wahlberg‘s name has come up again. He was originally offered the film but a deal was never put into place. However, if he still has access to the wig he wore in Rock Star, this could be the right fit. Another name being floated out there is Channing Tatum, who could also work in a that-totally-doesn’t-work kind of way. All I know is that the filmmakers only have a handful of chances to screw up this reboot, and casting is the best place to start. That’s why they should take a chance and look into David Hyde Pierce’s availability. (THR)

Based on Milton’s 17th Century poem, Alex Proyas‘s Paradise Lost will chronicle the sweeping war between good and evil after Lucifer is thrown out of Heaven and tries to claim the souls of mankind. Dick move, Bradley Cooper. Dick move. But not so fast. We have a Benjamin Walker here to stop you. The Benjamin Walker in question is  Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter star, Benjamin Walker, who is in talks to join the project as the archangel Michael, the only angel powerful enough to fight his brother Lucifer.

With small appearances in Flags Of Our Fathers and Kinsey before freeing the slaves from vampire rule, this is a big role for Walker. Says Proyas of the film, “It’s not just armies battling in an epic war. This is an adventure about the origins of good and evil after Lucifer’s rebellion gets him cast out of Heaven and leads to a struggle with his brother archangel over the soul of mankind, starting with Adam and Eve. That is the scope of the narrative here, and we’ve tried to stay as faithful as possible to Milton’s text, particularly its focus on Lucifer’s evolution and the birth of evil. It’s a family saga, about a group on brothers, two in particular, who are on divergent paths, and Lucifer’s feelings of betrayal by his father and family that forge his descent into evil.”

Staying as faithful as possible to Milton’s text without switching the “s”‘s out for “f”‘s, of course. Man, history is a weird place. (Deadline)

The Silver Linings Playbook. Mark Wahlberg is out, and Bradley Cooper may be back in.

Last year, Cooper was attached to the lead role of a former teacher who moves in with his mom after being institutionalized for depression, but was cast aside when director David O. Russell‘s best guy, Mark Wahlberg, showed interest. Wahlberg, however, now has to bow out due to a scheduling conflict. So, now Cooper is back and things are going to be awkwaaaard at the table read.

Robert De Niro, whose trailer accidentally fused to Cooper’s on the set of Limitless, will continue his recent trend of going only where Cooper goes. He’s currently in talks for an undisclosed role. Jennifer Lawrence will also star as a young woman who jumps from bed to bed after the death of her husband. That’s every ghost’s nightmare. (Deadline)

When Bradley Cooper was cast to play Lucifer in Paradise Lost, we wondered aloud how the hell that was going to work. Cooper isn’t known so much for his dark qualities. He’s more so the actor that lonely girls claim as their fictitious boyfriend. Well, today there’s news that clears it all up. Cooper will be lord over the underworld of pain and torture with the help of creepy motion-capture technology.

Director Alex Proyas will begin production soon in Sydney with the intention of a late 2013 release. There’s no word about exactly how much mo-cap will be employed and whether it will be used for all characters or just a select few. We’ll keep you posted when Andy Serkis joins the production because whether the filmmakers know it or not, Andy Serkis finds his way into all motion captured films. He’s like Lawnmower Man.

Ray Liotta is apparently not getting too old for this shit (I know Ray Liotta wasn’t in Lethal Weapon, but isn’t it really easy to imagine him saying that?). He’s agreed to strap on the nightstick and gun for one last graveyard shift in A Place Beyond the Pines, a thriller from Blue Valentine director Derek Cianfrance with Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper. In case it’s slipped your memory, here’s a plot synopsis:

“Pic follows around a pro motorcycle rider (Gosling) who starts robbing banks to support his newborn son — until he crosses paths with a determined young cop (Cooper). Liotta will play a fierce, crooked officer on the force.”

I’ve seen Ray Liotta play fierce, and I’ve seen Ray Liotta play crooked, but can he play fierce and crooked? Just kidding, he’s always played fierce and crooked, I’m sure he’ll do fine. (Variety)

The guy who copied Alan Moore’s script for Watchmen into Final Draft has a new screenwriting gig. Alex Tse will adapt another comic by scripting Relativity‘s reboot of The Crow.

The project is intended to be a more gritty take than the original 1994 adaptation which was pretty gritty in its own right. Bradley Cooper is set to star as the vengful goth spirit whose soul cannot rest until he avenges his wife’s murder. So I guess this is actually more a gritty reboot of Bradley Cooper‘s image. Can’t imagine him covered in pancake and burning heroin addicts alive, but the threat of having to do Kate Hudson rom-coms does funny things to a man. (Variety)

Eva Mendes is already set to star alongside Bradley Cooper and Ryan Gosling in The Place Beyond The Pines, while Greta Gerwig is in talks to get in on whatever stuff goes on there. The drama, directed by Blue Valentine’s Derek Cianfrance, “tracks the tragic consequences of a showdown between a motorcycle rider-turned-bank robber (Gosling) and a cop-turned politician (Cooper). Mendes will play the robber’s love interest and mother of his child, and Gerwig is in talks to play the politician’s wife.” Two sexy, powerful wives defending the honor of their men? Sign me up for that cat fight. Eva’s a crafty one, though. She’ll offer up those pouty lips, and then pull a shiv out of her pigtail. My cousin’s best friend knows a guy who said so.

Now that Doug Liman has been granted permission to travel to the moon, he’s searching for A-list actors to join him.

Paramount has fast-tracked and financed Doug Liman’s Luna, the story of some rogue scientists who build a makeshift rocket to retrieve an energy source located on the moon. The project has been in the works for years, but couldn’t find financing until now courtesy of Skydance and New Regency. Liman and Jon Hamburg wrote the original draft of the script, though it’s been reworked several times since then. The project is now poised to be Liman’s next, so the question of casting has quickly become a priority.

The shortlist of male leads includes Bradley Cooper, Andrew Garfield, Emile Hirsch and Chris Pine, all of whom have starred in blockbusters. (I’m considering Speed Racer a blockbuster for the sake of Hirsch’s feelings.) No talks are underway, but expect that list to get culled quickly. As for the fairer sex, producers are looking to Rosario Dawson, Megan Fox, Rachel McAdams, Eva Mendes, Zoe Saldana and Olivia Wilde. So they’re going with “young hot women.” Interesting approach.

Olivia Wilde is squaring up to join Bradley Cooper in The Words, a dramatic thriller from the writers of Tron: Legacy (who are also directing). Before we go any further, can we just take a minute to imagine what beautiful children these two would make?

Ahhhhhhhhh….

Wilde’s role hasn’t been disclosed, but she joins a cast already packed with the aforementioned Cooper, John Hannah, J.K. Simmons, Dennis Quaid, Jeremy Irons, and Zoe SaldanaThe Words follows a writer who finds there is a stiff price to pay for stealing another man’s work. A thrilling price? Probably.

This role is just one of many Wilde has lined up for herself as she is quickly finding herself scheduled to a Franco-esque degree, but without all the batshit crazy side projects. She’s got Cowboys and Aliens, The Change-Up, In Time, Butter, Welcome to People, Blackbird, and of course, a little TV show called “House.”

No wonder she doesn’t have time to date my buddy Craig. (Variety)

After Las Vegas and Shanghai, Bradley Cooper wants to visit the Time Tombs. This trip would be sans Wolf Pack.

In a recent interview with Charlie Rose, actor Bradley Cooper revealed that he teamed up with a friend to write a spec adaptation of author Dan Simmons’ Hyperion, part of a series of futuristic sci-fi novels. They already sent their version to GK Films, with the hope of landing the actual writing gig. That takes some real nerd balls, right there.

The book is about seven pilgrims traveling across the galaxy, with the threat of total galactic armageddon looming. Can they make it to Hyperion and save humanity? Can they? We’ll have to see the movie to find out, though the project’s been in development for years. Or, y’know, read the book, but it’s +450 pages and I’m lazy. (/Film)

The post Review: The Hangover Part II appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Thank God The Hangover Part II is good. We don’t need any more summer disappointments. This is everything we loved about The Hangover and more all new epic, outrageous comedy.

First of all, the film does a great job of handling how the exact same thing happens again. The characters acknowledge it just enough without being all, “Remember the last time we passed out and had to piece back the comic misadventures of the night before?” The only excuse they need is “it’s still funny,” so they don’t dwell on the explanation.

It is nice to see more of the wolf pack’s everyday interaction, including how they’ve coped with the history of Vegas. Phil’s (Bradley Cooper) basically the same but Doug (Justin Bartha) is happily married and Stu (Ed Helms) is now completely overprotective. Alan (Zach Galifianakis) is a definitive personality with his pronunciation of Thailand and random Doogie Howser jokes, and, as destructive as he is, he’s also sweet and protective.

‘Hangover Part II’ Teaser Warms Your Frat Boy Heart

They really build another mystery, even though we’ve already seen Stu’s face tattoo and Alan’s shaved head on the poster. The catch phrases on the poster aren’t spoilers either. “I have a demon in me” comes up in a totally different context than I imagined it would. The script by Scot Armstrong, Craig Mazin and Todd Phillips seamlessly applies the Hangover structure to a new setting. The beauty of it is it could happen anywhere, or with anyone (i.e. franchise.)

This hangover is even more desperate. Stealing Tyson’s tiger is irresponsible, but it’s easy enough to stay out of a wildcat’s path. Thailand is epically seedy and their exploits there have permanent ramifications. They have not given away the most shocking moments in the trailer. You’ve seen one-off gags like hitting the pig with the car, but the actual immoral ones are a surprise. The tattoo artist cameo definitely didn’t need to be a celebrity stunt casting. It works great with just a tough character actor.

6 photosKim Lee

If you want a completely different structure then you’ll be disappointed, but then also it wouldn’t be The Hangover, it would just be some other movie. So it’s a tattoo instead of a tooth and a monkey instead of a baby. Stu’s new song isn’t quite as funny as “Halle Berry in her Catwoman suit” and the photo montage at the end isn’t as shocking, but I’m glad they tried them again. The beauty of sequels is they can try different takes on familiar favorites, and build on what they’ve done before. It becomes tradition and there are plenty of new bits destined to be classics. Alan’s meditation flashback is so right for depicting how Alan sees the world.

Look, it’s not entirely unpredictable but it’s funny. The explanation for their second blackout is a bit disappointing but so far, The Hangover Part II is the only summer movie that lives up to the hype. I want to see another one, but the next blackout shouldn’t happen at a wedding. Maybe Doug’s son’s bar mitzvah, and not just finding another missing person. They should cause an international incident, maybe murder someone. It can turn out in the end that he was a terrorist and they actually saved the day, but take it to the next level. Keep doing it though.

In case you’re interested in such things, this would make The Hangover Part II the first live-action comedy to even get within spitting distance of making $100 million in one weekend. The other movie to come close is Bruce Almighty at $67 million, proving once and for all that America might like God, but they love drunken hijinks even more. (CinemaBlend)

There was some worry among fans of The Hangover that it wouldn’t be seen on its intended release date on May 26th, due to a lawsuit from the creator of Mike Tyson’s infamous facial tattoo, which was co-opted by Ed Helms for the movie. Here’s Warner Bros. in a statement on the good (for everyone but the tattoo artist) news:

“We are very gratified by the Court’s decision which will allow the highly anticipated film, The Hangover Part II to be released on schedule this week around the world. Plaintiff’s failed attempt to enjoin the film in order to try and extract a massive settlement payment from Warner Bros. was highly inappropriate and unwarranted.”

There you have it. If I were that tattoo artist, I’d definitely buy a ticket for something else and sneak into The Hangover Part II this weekend. (Deadline)

Somewhere in Burbank, a bunch of Warner Bros. marketing executives are waking up from a long night of partying. They don’t remember the night before, but one of them goes online and realizes they released more than 30 stills from The Hangover Part II. Also, there’s a stupid monkey in the room for some reason.

While those executives piece their night together, you can flip through the above gallery, showing highlights from the newly released group of high quality pics from the summer sequel, starring Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis, Ed Helms and Ken Jeong. The Wolf Pack is back, doing things that are similar to their first outing, but also enough different stuff to warrant your $38.

Well hello there, cowpokes! I can tell by that gleam in yer eye that you’re a-lookin’ for casting updates coming out of the Cannes Film Festival. Well saddle up, pardner, because here we go! Yee-haw.

First up out of the corral is Dennis Quaid, who’s joining Jeremy Irons and Bradley Cooper in The Words. Quaid will play “Clay Hammond, a celebrated writer, in the tale in which Cooper’s character, another writer, discovers the price he must pay for stealing the work of another man, played by Irons.” Sounds like a rootin’-tootin’ good time, and also a meditation on creativity and plagiarism. (The Hollywood Reporter)

Next up under the branding iron are cowpokes Orlando Bloom and Nick Nolte, who’ve been cast in “coming-of-age road-trip comedy” Idea in America along with Stanley Tucci and Cristiana Capotondi. (The Hollywood Reporter)

The no. 3 spot on this rodeo is held by Helen Hunt, who’s a-gonna direct and star in romantic comedy Ride. A romantic comedy starring and directed by Helen Hunt? YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE-HAW!

Finally, we got England‘s Number 1 Wrangler Colin Firth, who will play the lead role in an untitled comedy to be directed by Dante Ariola from a script written by Becky Johnston. Here’s a plot synopsis, which rolls through your field of vision like a tumblin’ tumbleweed: “Firth plays a man who hates his job and is hated by his ex-wife and son. Feeling he missed his one shot at living the dream, he fakes his death and buys a new identity.” (Deadline)
