While I think The Hunger Games is a better written series with a stronger plot, the pervy side of me (i.e. 98.7 percent of me) prefers the thematically similar Divergent series simply because it is sexier. I haven’t finished all of book two, Insurgent, or started book three, Allegiant, but I’m pretty sure there’s eventually going to be sexual intercourse between the book’s protagonist, Tris, and her boyfriend, Four, and I am excited about it. I am also excited about the movie adaptation, hitting theaters on March 31, because, as this new clip suggests, things are gonna get steamy. Theo James, who plays Four (and is perhaps most memorable to readers as Mr. Pamuk on “Downton Abbey”), has got an impressively muscular canvas for those faction tattoos. Tris approves and so do I.
Without spoiling too much, here’s what I can tell you about “Anchorman 2.” The movie takes place at least 5-10 years after the first film, in 1980, as Ron Burgundy in turmoil, gets the team news team back together for the launch of the first 24 hours news channel. So, what’s become of Ron and sports anchor Champ Kind? Both have hit rock bottom or, as David Koechner (who plays Champ) describes it, “it’s a dark night of the soul.” Things are especially rough for Ron, who you are probably not surprised to learn is still not the ideal family man. So, from Cliff Huxtable to Walter White, how does Ron rank as a husband and father? See what Will Ferrell told me when I sat down with him and Koechner to talk about this hysterical, long-anticipated sequel. [YouTube]

My excitement over getting to interview the cast of “Anchorman 2″ — which opens in theaters today — was tempered by a few pestering thoughts in the back of my brain. What if they hate me? What if they don’t think I’m funny? Maybe I should be very serious. You know, not even try to make them laugh. Or, if it comes down to it, I’ll just ask them about the new Beyonce record, because who doesn’t want to talk about that. Obviously, I had a rare case of nerves. Which is probably how I ended up telling Paul Rudd and Steve Carell, who play Brian Fantana and Brick Tamland in the film, all about how I dirty-talk to my dog. Watch our interview above, and, in addition to seeing the “this chick is weird” look come over their faces, find out what Brian and Brick have been up to since the last time we saw the best news team in the world. Spoiler alert: Fantana is now the Terry Richardson of cat photographers and Brick is ready for romance!
In case you were wondering, Christina Ricci is still — somehow — utterly ageless. As as for her Lifetime original movie, “Lizze Bordon Took An Ax,” well, I’ll leave you to draw your own conclusions. [The Mary Sue]
This weekend I experienced an important rite-of-passage: I watched “Die Hard” for the first time. It was a movie I never thought much about before — I’m more into documentaries and indie films — but everyone, and I mean everyone, said I had to see it. Why? Because I was told by friends and also the entire Internet that it’s the best Christmas movie of all time! Better than “A Christmas Story”! Better than “A Charlie Brown Christmas”! Better than “Love Actually” ! It simply isn’t Christmas without watching “Die Hard”!
Well, I watched “Die Hard.” And I hate to break it to you, but that is not a Christmas movie. Not even close. Keep reading »
Oh, hello Kellan Lutz.
The abs-olute hunk gets chained up and whipped, dives backwards off of a waterfall, rides a horse, rows a boat … all shirtless, of course …. in the latest trailer for “The Legend of Hercules,” hitting theaters January 10. There are too many camera angles of his bare-chested body to count. Just watch.
Want more? Here’s your all-access pass to “The Legend of Hercules.” And for all the latest, follow the film right now, right here.
If you’re not familiar with the name Gaia Weiss, you’ll know it soon enough. She’s the gal Kellan Lutz lusts after in “The Legend of Hercules,” hitting theaters Jan. 10. And it’s no wonder. I mean, just look at the leggy (she’s nearly 6-feet tall!) blonde — she’s hot.
But the French model and actress is also more than meets the eye. Find out in our roundup below which member of the Gryffindor Quidditch team Hollywood’s hottest new up-and-comer is dating, or how she got bloody knuckles. Keep reading »
“I’ll just say no. [Slams fist on table.] No, period. I’m not doing it. I’m never gonna be in that movie. There was already a movie! And the show ended fuckin’ spot-on. We’re good.”
Taylor Kitsch, you sexy bastard, why must you crush my dreams like that? I realize that a “Friday Night Lights” movie (featuring the cast of the TV show) is Hollywood’s version of New York City’s 2nd Avenue subway — a big ol’ wonderful idea that will never ever come to fruition. All the talk in the world won’t make it a reality. And a “FNL” movie with out Tim Riggins is no “FNL” movie I want to see. Guess I’ll just rewatch the show from start to finish. [NYMag.com]
