If you've ever wanted to see Oz (the werewolf) and Dawn (the Key) from "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" making out, then we've got something extra special for you!
If you're like us, you find the whole idea kind of distasteful. Even though Seth Green and Michelle Trachtenberg's stints on "Buffy" did not overlap, Oz and Dawn snogging just seems... wrong.
But we believe in Seth and Michelle and fully support their endeavors (we especially lament the fact that we might not get to see Seth's "Star Wars: Detours" for a long, long time). So let's try to put the icky feelings aside and enjoy this exclusive clip from the crime thriller "Sexy Evil Genius."
"Sexy Evil Genius," which also stars Katee Sackhoff, William Baldwin and Harold Perrineau, will be available on DVD, VOD and digital download on April 9th.
First, Netflix resurrected "Arrested Development." Now fans are helping to bring back "Veronica Mars." This revival trend seems like great news for Browncoats, who have been waiting since 2005 (when "Serenity" hit theaters) for more adventures with Captain Mal & Co.
It's not as if the fans — and the actors — aren't willing; the well-meaning attempt to "Help Nathan (Fillion) Buy 'Firefly'" as well as the turnout at last year's Comic-Con reunion panel proved that the passion is still there. But to make a Joss Whedon show or movie, the first thing you need is Joss Whedon. And he's been kind of busy.
Exciting news coming out of SXSW this past weekend — but it's not about a movie we'll see any time soon. It looks like a sequel to Danny Boyle's "Trainspotting" may finally happen in 2016, just in time for the film's 20th anniversary.
Boyle has been talking about a possible sequel, based on author Irvine Welsh's own "Trainspotting" follow-up, "Porno," for years. But in Austin, where the director premiered new footage from his upcoming thriller "Trance," he said that his frequent collaborator John Hodge is currently working on a screenplay.
As the former mayor of New York City, Ed Koch, who died today at the age of 88, was a prominent pop culture figure in his own right. He appeared in several movies and TV shows; "Sex and the City," "The Muppets Take Manhattan," "The First Wives Club" and "The Hebrew Hammer" are just a few of the productions in which he appeared as himself.
But Koch was also a true movie lover. After his mayoral tenure, he became a bona fide critic, reviewing films for a New York area newspaper. And in 2009 he started an online video series called "The Mayor at the Movies."
Koch screened films with regular audience members, and his reviews (ending with either a "plus" or a "minus") reflected that Ordinary Guy ethos. These are highlights from a few of his video segments:
There is one thing that a "Star Wars" fan never has to worry about: a lack of merchandise in the marketplace. The licensing geniuses at Lucasfilm ensured long ago that the universe of "Star Wars" stuff extends well beyond t-shirts, mugs and posters. And now that there's another trilogy in the works, "Star Wars" merch will be hotter than ever.
So, for the fan on your holiday shopping list, we offer this handy "Star Wars" Gift Guide. On it you will find gifts for everyone from young Padawans to old Jedi Masters that will fit every budget.
Thanks to Messrs. Walt Disney and George Lucas, there will be more Star Wars movies headed toward your local megaplex. More Star Wars movies may mean more opportunities to see our favorite characters in the flesh— more Han Solo, Princess Leia, Lando Calrissian, Chewbacca—but it also means a possible chance to see much more of the lesser-known "supporting" characters that we might have only glimpsed in the existing films.
These are the ten characters that MTV News would be most eager to see again. All of them have extended stories in the Expanded Universe—we may have read about them or seen them in animated form, but watching them come to life again on the big screen would be pretty awesome.
This year has been a good year for Fran Kranz. He starred in "Much Ado About Nothing," one of the most anticipated and well-received movies at the Toronto International Film Festival. He acted alongside Philip Seymour Hoffman and Andrew Garfield in Mike Nichols' Broadway revival of "Death of a Salesman." And "The Cabin in the Woods" finally hit theaters, after a long and frustrating wait (it's now available on DVD and Blu-ray).
Kranz says he had a great time playing wise stoner Marty. "There was something truthful and juicy that you could sink your teeth into and look at him as a three-dimensional, real human being."
But when he first read the script, he had a decidedly negative reaction, but it wasn't that he didn't like it. "It was so funny, far funnier than your typical horror film," he said. "And a lot of horror films have a lot of good humor, but this was like a great comedy on its own."
Pink's skill set is extensive and varied: writer, singer, aerialist, mom, make-up pitch person. With her role in the film "Thanks For Sharing," which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, she can now legitimately add "serious actress" to the list.
"Thanks For Sharing," a dramedy about sex addiction, has a cast that includes established, respected actors like Mark Ruffalo, Tim Robbins and Gwyneth Paltrow. But Pink definitely holds her own. She plays Dede, a beauty salon employee and recovering addict who strikes up a friendship with Josh Gad's Neil, an emergency room doctor whom she meets in a 12-step program.
What do you do when you've just shot a movie destined to be one of the biggest of all time and you've got a few days of vacation ahead? If you're Joss Whedon, you make another movie—in your house.
In late October of last year, Bellwether Pictures, the new indie studio created by Whedon and his wife, Kai Cole, announced the completion of principal photography on a modern adaptation of William Shakespeare's comedy "Much Ado About Nothing."
Whedon shot the film over twelve days at his California home, with a cast culled mostly from his previous TV and film projects. "He was doing that purely for the passion of it," explained actor Tom Lenk, "because he loves Shakespeare." Lenk is best known to Whedon fans as the adorably annoying Andrew on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer."
"Much Ado" was like a secret class reunion for Whedon University graduates. "It was just a bunch of peeps that I was already friends with," said Lenk, "and then the people that I didn’t know were all just really cool."
There were no MTV Movie Awards when “Star Wars” was released in 1977 (there was no MTV yet, either). If there were, it’s a safe bet that the film would have swept pretty much all of the categories. Aside from Movie of the Year and Best Cast, “Star Wars” would surely have blown away the competition in these races:
Best Male Performance: Harrison Ford (Han Solo)
Best Female Performance: Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia)
