'Retreat' Trailer Pits Billy Elliott Against A Married Couple

And this is why you never trust a ginger. On a remote British Island, a man (Cillian Murphy) and his wife (Thandie Newton) are living a quiet, peaceful existence until a vacation in which they rescue an injured man who washes ashore. The strange man is played by a very grown up and very creepy Jamie Bell, who audiences fell in love with as Billy Elliott. Well, Mr. Elliott has a bit of a dark side, the inhabitants discover as they find a gun to go along with his sordid past. Despite their reservations, they reluctantly believe his claim that a deadly affliction has wiped out much of the earth, forcing the trio to quarantine themselves in their cabin. First time director Carl Tibbetts seems to have found a winning formula here. The minimalistic sets do a good job of fostering tension and claustrophobia. Also jarring is hearing Mr. Murphy speak with a brogue. He's been in so many American films recently, I felt we had naturalized him. Nope. Still Irish.

Benedict Cumberbatch Does A Wicked Jar-Jar Binks Impression

Why? Because he can, that's why. Big ups to fanboy (and especially fangirl) fave Benedict Cumberbatch, who, despite his upright British manner and role selection, seems to be something of a giant goofball. In this interview, with little prompting, Benedict, who calls himself a bit of a poseur when it comes to fanboy culture, offers up not one, but two killer impressions. The first, as mentioned in the title, is nobody's favorite Star Wars character, Jar-Jar Binks. The second, slightly more understandable impression, is Gollum from Lord of the Rings. Take a look and fall in love with Cumberbatch all over again.


Joseph Gordon-Levitt Looks Like Billy Zane In New 'Looper' Trailer

Seriously, though. This guy's face? Rian Johnson's latest film is a high concept science fiction action film starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as an assassin who murders marks from the future. Until one day, the man (played by Bruce Willis) beamed back to him for disposal turns out to be his older self. This new trailer reveals more of the plot as well as the loggerheads that the present and future individuals find themselves at. It also reveals more of what the Bruce Willification of Gordon-Levitt's face looks like. It's. Just. Plain. Weird. I'd never thought that the offspring of those two would look like some kind of Billy Zane monster. Then again, this is a work of science fiction.


Wanna See Billy Bob Thornton Fight A 'Grizzly' Bear?

Yeah, you do. This May, Billy Bob Thornton's career takes another strange turn as he ventures out into the wilds of Alaska to kill an angry grizzly bear. Thornton is part of the ensemble of bear victims lead by James Marsden, Thomas Jane, and Piper Perabo who face a giant bear on its own turf in Grizzly.

Mr. Belding Has Joined A Rapper's Entourage

Straight outta Bayside. For years, there have been stories about Dennis "Mr. Belding" Haskins trying to trade in his Saved By The Bell cred for some young tail. This story has been corroborated by rapper Action Bronson of all people, who tells Complex: "He’s the homie, [which is why I named the record after him]. He’s a creep. He was [at the show] trying to find some young bitches. The thing is, [I had him come out and introduce me to the crowd at the show], and not everybody at the show knew who he was. He’s [known by] the older generation, not the younger generation. It definitely [went over a couple people’s heads].” Reality show. Now. Make it happen, MTV2. (via Warming Glow)


Lake Bell Lies To Be With Simon Pegg In Totally Fictional 'Man Up'

'Divergent' is more believable than this. Man Up stars Simon Pegg as a guy who has a great time with his blind date who isn't completely, totally honest with him. Lake Bell stars as the lying liar who lies in order to be with him. Just so we're clear that this is a work of fiction, Lake Bell looks like this: And Simon Pegg looks like this.Once her deceit is revealed, they then break up and spend the rest of the movie figuring out that they want to be together. What until he finds out that she's not even really British.


New ‘Mr. Popper’s Penguins’ Trailer Is Penguin-Filled To The Max

Also, learn how to play "The New Mr. Popper's Penguins Movie Trailer Drinking Game." I've just played "The New Mr. Popper's Penguins Movie Trailer Drinking Game." It's simple. Just watch the trailer above and take a drink anytime someone says the word "penguin." Also, I gotta tell you... that you are my... best friend in the whole frickin' world.. I love you, man... serio-- for serious. *Hiccup* Mr. Popper's Penguins stars Jim Carrey as a man who receives a lot of penguins, which poses many humorous problems for him, as you can no doubt imagine. Ultimately, those penguins seem to help him connect better with his family, which is a big relief for me personally. The Fox film also stars Angela Lansbury, Carla Gugino, Dominic Chianese and Madeline Carroll. Jim Carrey will dance to "Ice Ice Baby" with a group of penguins in theaters nationwide June 17, 2011.


Honest Trailers: 'Iron Man 3'

Honesty is always the best policy. Especially when it's funny. By the time you get to the third installment of a film, no matter how original the material, or tight the team is, there are going to be some inconsistencies, redundancies, and just general familiarity that piss people of. And that's just in the base case. If it's a superhero film, and you strip the hero away of his superpowers, you're going to feel the wrath. This is our wrath for Iron Man 3 starring Robert Downey Jr., largely as someone other than Iron Man.


‘Mr. Popper’s Penguins’ Teaser Is Here! ‘Mr. Popper’s Penguins’ Teaser Is Here!

Oh, Jim Carrey is living with penguins all right! The teaser trailer for Mr. Popper's Penguins has the following things: Jim Carrey showing his age, Jim Carrey teaching penguins how to hip hop dance to "Ice Ice Baby," Junior Soprano saying, "Your house is full of penguins!" and almost nothing else. I am not familiar with the source material, the 1938 children's book Mr. Popper's Penguins, but if it happens to be one sheet of paper that says simply, "Mr. Popper lives in a house with penguins for some reason," then this movie appears 100% faithful to the source material. Uhhhh...he seems to live in a nice house? He's in a tuxedo. That's a pleasant little play on penguin imagery.... That's seriously all that can be said about this trailer.
