For as varied as the career of James Franco is, it's important to find a way to keep track of all the different projects the actor has taken on in his year's on screen. Luckily, the folks over at Film.com have assembled this helpful Francography chart to compare and contrast the various roles.
The graph works is an interesting way to see how far Franco has gone in the direction of any one of the four axes. The chart essentially ranges from "Annapolis" to "Milk," but scoping out the in-between is so much fun.
Much like Clark Kent and Superman, there's not much of a difference between Nick Offerman and his internet demi-god alter-ego Ron Swanson — in fact, the "Parks and Rec" star owns and operates his very own successful woodworking shop.
With the 2013 MTV Movie Awards only a month away, we'd be remiss if we didn't get the expert consultation on the signature Golden Popcorn trophy from the mustachioed dead-pan craftsman. Offerman, who swung by the MTV Studios promoting his new indie flick "Somebody Up There Likes Me", had some first impressions:
"It feels like my jeans are growing uncomfortably tight — woah, that is turgid."
Rebel Wilson, the star and host of the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, has taken on a complete action star persona for her new gig, and the latest promo for the biggest night in movies proves that for such an enormous star, she can still work with a partner, especially if that wing man has the abs of Golden Popcorn nominee Channing Tatum.
In the new teaser for the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, Wilson and Tatum attempt to make a getaway in a limo from the upcoming movie "White House Down." Wilson needs to get into position so she can fire her RPG at their pursuers, but the only way to do that is to straddle Tatum and have him take off his shirt. It's the only way.
Will Jennifer Lawrence get her silver lining in the form of a Golden Popcorn? Which beefcake will sizzle in our brand-new Best Shirtless Performance category? It's up to you to decide the winners of the 2013 MTV Movie Awards! Vote now, and tune in Sunday, April 14 at 9 p.m. ET, as star Rebel Wilson takes the stage at the Sony Pictures Studios lot in Culver City, California.
The love story of Shovelface and Mouth Breather comes to an end in the final installment of Honest Trailer's take on "The Twilight Saga," "Breaking Dawn." The hilarious takedown of the final two "Twilight" movies doesn't just mock Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, but also the Cullens, the "Snow Dogs" and the fact that vampires don't even sparkle in the sunlight anymore. Hey, that's a good point!
The funniest parts come from the Honest Trailers montage of all of "Breaking Dawn's" stares, the need for four different chess games and KStew's inability to apply toothpaste to a toothbrush. Yes, really, it happened. Check out the video after the jump!
This time they break down the Wachowskis essential "The Matrix" to it's most important elements with the help of hilarious and simplistic cartoons. There are a few important takeaways to note. 1) Neo pukes a lot. Like all the time. 2) Trinity is the one with the boobs. 3) "There is no spoooon."
Check out "The Matrix in 60 Seconds" after the jump!
The internet made a lot of the last time James Franco appeared on the "Colbert Report" and challenged Stephen Colbert to a test of Tolkien knowledge. The results were definitive. Lesson learned.
Or was it?!?!
Now promoting his new film "Oz the Great and Powerful," Franco came back to "The Report," but this time, he came prepared. He had a question that he thought would stump the master. Currently rereading "The Silmarillion," the more mythological text of J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle-earth, asked Colbert about the Valar, the gods of the world.
Oh, Franco, you naive, naive boy. You underestimate the Tolkien knowledge of Stephen Colbert.
Promotional interviews for a film, especially big-budget stuff, like "Oz the Great and Powerful," tend to cover fairly safe, publicist-vetted topics instead of breaking new ground, typically to the boredom of the interviewee.
But occasionally, like in this BBC Radio 1 interview with Mila Kunis and "petrified" newby Chris Stark, a star can take control of the chat and reveal a bit of themselves with the help of a nervous first timer.
As soon as Kunis realizes that Stark couldn't be more nervous, she decides to have some fun and engage him in a way that not only made him more comfortable and allowed him to show just how funny he is, but also elevates her to a level of cool that makes us remember that she's probably the original Jennifer Lawrence.
Check out the interview with Mila Kunis above and get ready to feel some feelings.
From the trailers and TV ads, "21 and Over" might seem like a run-of-the-mill college party movie, but what you might not have been able to pick up on from the previews is the talent of the actors behind the three lead characters, Miles Teller, Skylar Astin, and Justin Chon.
In anticipation of the release of "21 and Over" on March 1, we're bringing you an exclusive look at Teller's character Miller, the wise-ass motor mouth that encourages the drunken night of 21-year-old festivities at the center of the movie.
Teller gives Miller a lovable smart ass spin that's absolutely necessary for a movie like this. Check out some of his more outrageous insults and one-liners in the video above!
Filming in currently underway on "The Muppets... Again," a follow-up to the successful reboot of Jim Henson's beloved characters, but all we've seen from the English set is two photos of the felt cast and their new human leading man, Ricky Gervais.
But a few days ago, Gervais uploaded a short video to his YouTube channel that is actually kind of perfect. It stars Gervais himself and Pepe the King Prawn, and the clip gives a pretty good sense of the mood over on the "Muppets... Again" set.
"The Muppets... Again" will open in theaters on March 21, 2014.
When you're watching a horror movie, do you ever stop to think how you would react if you actually encountered the on-screen creature in real life? If it's "The Last Exorcism: Part II" that we're talking about, you'd probably react just like these unfortunate salon customers.
In this prank set up to promote the sequel to the Eli Roth-produced faux-documentary, an outrageously flexible girl appears, poses, and crab walks the for the frightened patrons of a beauty salon. Not to ruin the video, they do not handle their encounter with the supernatural well.
"The Last Exorcism: Part II" opens in theaters on Friday.
