Another year, another opportunity for Jennifer Lawrence to skip the MTV Movie Awards. The Oscar-winning actress picked up two nominations this morning for her role as Katniss Everdeen inThe Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1: Best Female Performance and Best Musical Moment. Lawrence has won the Golden Popcorn trophy three years running in the Best Female Performance category, and has five total awards in 14 nominations, counting this year. But despite all the MTV gold, Lawrence has never attended the ceremony, usually citing scheduling conflicts.
Netflix will offer Sony Pictures Entertainment ’s controversial comedy, 'The Interview,' to U.S. and Canadian members beginning Saturday, Jan. 24.
As the controversial comedy is the number one rental on Xbox Video and YouTube Movies, 'The Interview' is also selling out at the independent theaters that were brave enough to release it on Christmas Day.
The actors have withdrawn from previously scheduled press appearances, including a Thursday appearance on 'Late Night with Seth Meyers'
Call off the FBI on this one. This early footage from 'The Interview' — which you can watch above — is totally legit, and you can only see it on Yahoo Movies.
The amount paid to the actors for their work on the upcoming comedy is among a trove of potentially embarrassing information stolen by hackers
So Seth Rogen and James Franco decide to make a little movie about a plot to assassinate the dictator of North Korea.
The new trailer for The Interview finds Franco and Rogen trying to kill North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
By Linda Ge A letter written to the U.N. Secretary-General demands the US ban production and distribution of the comedy North Korea is not letting Seth Rogen and James Franco off the hook for their upcoming comedy “The Interview,” and has now lodged a formal complaint with the United Nations, according to a report by Reuters. In a letter written to U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, dated June 27 but obtained by Reuters on Wednesday, North Korea’s U.N. Ambassador Ja Song Nam accused the United States of sponsoring terrorism and committing an act of war by allowing the production and forthcoming distribution of a movie about a plot to kill North Korean leader Kim Jong Un (played in the film by actor Randall Park). Also read: North Korea Considers James Franco and Seth Rogen’s ‘The Interview’ to be an ‘Act of War’ “To allow the production and distribution of such a film on the assassination of an incumbent head of a sovereign state should be regarded as the most undisguised sponsoring of terrorism as well as an act of war,” Ja writes.
The Interview Exclusive Trailer Seth Rogen James Franco Seth Rogen and James Franco have faced murderous drug dealers and demons from Hell. The two are sent to North Korea to interview their show’s biggest fan: Kim Jong-un, the country’s mysterious supreme leader. Rogen, who co-wrote and co-directed the film with his longtime collaborator Evan Goldberg (This Is the End), told Yahoo Movies that the idea sprang from a legitimate premise: “People have the hypothetical discussion about how journalists have access to the world’s most dangerous people, and they hypothetically would be in a good situation to assassinate them,” he says. Rogen explained that the original script had been about a meeting North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-il, but when the dictator died in 2011, they reworked it to focus on his mysterious successor.
Washington Post film critic Ann Hornaday wrote that suspected UCSB/Isla Vista killer Elliot Rodger was influenced by the works of Seth Rogen and Judd Apatow. Rogen and Apatow responded on Twitter.
The deliriously funny new comedy Neighbors, which opened last weekend to a very friendly $51 million, has drawn raves for its relatable, casually progressive portrayal of two 30ish parents (Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne) struggling with adulthood, especially in the face of the wild rumpus taking place next door after a fraternity moves in. Director Nicholas Stoller (Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Get Him to the Greek), himself a young parent with kids aged 6 and 1, admitted to us that there were lines that needed careful toeing in a raunchy comedy that oftentimes finds the couple on the brink of utter irresponsibility. Stoller also told us about one particular scene that clearly crossed that line and was subsequently voted off the block.
Jerrod Carmichael is about to become unavoidable. That’s the buzz in the LA comedy scene, anyway, and based on his work in the new film “Neighbors,” I would agree that it is only a matter of time before everyone knows this young comedian and his work. This past week, he was on the road going college-to-college to promote the film, along with co-stars Dave Franco (who we spoke to yesterday) and Christopher Mintz-Plasse, and it sounds like it was an insane trip. I remember talking to Mintz-Plasse when he was just coming off of a similar promotional tour for “Role Models,” his first major experience interacting with the public, and he was sort of blown away by the entire thing.
Of all the Francos right now, Dave Franco is the Daviest. In other words, it’s silly to compare James Franco and Dave Franco because the more we see of the two of them, the more it becomes apparent that shared DNA aside, these guys are radically different performers.
