This Is 40
Watch The Trailer!

Oh, Shirtless Paul Rudd. You are Shirtless Paul Rudd and you’re not even the best thing in this trailer. “This Is 40″ is the sort-of sequel to “Knocked Up,” about Paul and Debbie, the sister and brother-in-law of Katharine Heigl’s character. Now they’re 40 and feeling positively ancient. But they’re still got pot brownies, a gorgeous home, two great kids, and people in their lives like Megan Fox, Chris O’Dowd, and Jason Segel. Doesn’t sound too shabby to me. By all means, Leslie Mann, take 28. I’ll hand it over for half a pot brownie and a romp in the sack with your onscreen husband.

Did Tom Waits Inspire Heath Ledger's Joker?

Heath Ledger’s portrayal of The Joker in “The Dark Knight” is one of the most chillingly original performances on screen — but perhaps the late actor was influenced by other characters in pop culture? Like, say, gravely voiced singer-songwriter Tom Waits? Watch this 1979 interview with Waits and try and tell me the vocal inflections and mannerisms aren’t uncannily similar. [NME]

“Mockingjay” Split: Where Will It Be?

“The Hunger Games” film studio Lionsgate recently confirmed what we’ve been suspecting for a while now: that this franchise will duly follow in the footsteps of “Harry Potter” and “The Twilight Saga” and release its final chapter, “Mockingjay,” in two installments.

Yep, not surprisingly, a trilogy’s just not enough when we’re talking about cashing in on a phenomenon like this, so Suzanne Collins’ third and final “Hunger Games” book  will be split into two films, with Part 1 debuting on Nov. 21, 2014, and Part 2 following along on Nov. 20, 2015. Read more…
