Indiana Jones Does Not Need Edward Cullen’s Pouting Good Looks To Appeal To Kids

Indiana Jones Does Not Need Edward Cullen's Pouting Good Looks To Appeal To Kids

While I’m usually bored with remakes of classic movies, I’m not going to begrudge them. I’m very excited for the new Star Wars revamp, and I have every trust that J. J. Abrams is going to do due homage to second-most important movie trilogy of my life.

However, it’s the first-most that’s got me worried: apparently the Indiana Jones trilogy is getting a makeover. This is enough to give me a heart attack, especially with rumors circulating that someone like Robert Pattinson, Channing Tatum, Chris Hemsworth or Bradley Cooper could be cast as Indy. A choice like these would reflect to me that Disney is more invested in getting kids to watch the movie on the basis of its lead’s looks rather than the philosophy the movie presents. Keep reading »

"Obvious Child"

It’s not often that I endorse dragging your butt to go see a movie in the theater. Tickets cost as much as a cocktail, theatergoers are rude, the floors are sticky, and you can watch pretty much anything you want on Netflix and Hulu now anyway. But really, go see “Obvious Child,” starring Jenny Slate, Gaby Hoffman and Jake Lacy, which opens this weekend in NYC and LA (before heading to theaters nationwide this month). You heard me: GO! Here are six reasons why you can’t miss this movie … Spoilers ahead! Keep reading »

Rejoice! Lupita Nyong’o & Gwendoline Christie Cast In “Star Wars: Episode VII”

Rejoice! Lupita Nyong'o & Gwendoline Christie Cast In "Star Wars: Episode VII"
"Star Wars: Episode VII" Casting News!

The first three “Star Wars” movies (Episodes IV, V and VI) are amazing, obviously, but the three prequels (Episodes I, II and III) that came out in the late-’90s and early-’00s were such total junk that I was pretty meh on ever seeing J.J. Abrams’ attempts at the three upcoming sequels in the saga. But I may be changing my tune now that it’s been officially announced that Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o and “Game of Thrones” Gwendoline Christie — aka Brienne of Tarth, aka Baby Tilda Swinton — have been cast in “Star Wars: Episode VII.” No word yet on who they’ll be playing, but if I could, I’d be toasting them with a drink at the Mos Eisley Cantina.

The Frisky Is Sending 100 Fans To The Movies For An Advance Screening Of “Obvious Child”

obvious-child

Here at The Frisky, we love going to the movies. We also love free stuff. We KNOW we’re not alone here, so we’re giving away 50 pairs of movie tickets to our loyal fans! Yes, that’s 100 free tickets. BOOM!

The first 50 people to sign up for a set of tickets will see “Obvious Child,” a comedy starring Jenny Slate as an aspiring comedian whose everyday life as a twenty-something provides ample material for her act. On stage, Donna is unapologetically herself, joking about topics as intimate as her sex life and as crude as her day-old underwear. But when Donna gets dumped, loses her job and finds herself pregnant just before Valentine’s Day, she has to navigate the murky waters of adulthood for the first time. As she grapples with an uncertain financial future, an unwanted pregnancy and a surprising new suitor, Donna discovers that the most terrifying thing about adulthood isn’t facing it on her own. It’s allowing herself to accept the love and support of others, while still finding humor in every situation.

Want in? Here’s how to snag your tix… Keep reading »

We’ve got 15 months to go until “Magic Mike XXL” hits theaters, but the movie’s Big Dick Richie has something to whet your appetite in the meantime. Joe Manganiello — who plays the well-endowed Richie in “Magic Mike” — directed “La Bare,” a documentary about the world’s most popular male strip club, La Bare Dallas, which hits theaters on June 27. “Men wanted to see naked women, women want a show,” one person notes in the Red Band trailer above, and the film takes a look behind the curtain (and beneath the banana hammock) at just how that show comes — oh whatever, blah blah blah, SHOW ME SOME ASS.
