Ben Stiller "Definitely Would" Like Cara Delevingne To Star In 'Zoolander' Sequel


Ben Stiller Cara Delevingne Owen Wilson

There have been many whispers about the possibility of a follow-up to 2001’s hit comedy Zoolander, but one casting rumour seems to be solidifying. According to MTV, the film’s original star Ben Stiller wants British model Cara Delevingne to play a part.

Stiller was being interviewed to promote the third instalment of the family-friendly movies series Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb when he was asked about the existence of a sequel. He replied “There is a script, I won't deny there's a script, and there's been a reading of the script - but it hasn't yet been fully formulated.”

Ben Stiller Reveals His Wet Welcome To London During 'Night At The Museum 3'


Ben Stiller Robin Williams

For the recent third instalment of the 'Night at the Museum' series, Ben Stiller and the cast and crew of the previous two films travelled to London to film in The British Museum. But aside from the fun times on set, what did Stiller find to be the best thing about filming in the UK?

Well, "The best thing about filming in the UK," according to Stiller, "was the sunshine. Just loads of sunshine when we were filming there. And the warmth." He was joking, of course. "We filmed in January" he confessed, before explaining that "I think it rained every second we were there." This isn't exactly surprising, as January 2014 saw the south of England's wettest month on record, with around five months' worth of rain in some parts of the country. Stiller continued to say "all the exterior shots it would rain, and then when we went inside it would stop raining." He kept optimistic, however, as he explained "it was great because it looks good on camera to see the wet surfaces on everything."

"Battle Of The Five Armies" Trumps "Museum", "Annie" For Weekend Box Office


Peter Jackson Quvenzhane Wallis Ben Stiller

So, it looks like The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies has taken over the box office while no one was watching. Well, actually, it turns out a lot of people were watching, and the third instalment of Peter Jackson’s fantasy series checked in at $90,6 million domestic at the end of the weekend.

Martin Freeman, The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies
Martin Freeman and co. had virtually no competition at the box office this weekend.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, box-office comparisons to the previous Hobbit films aren't exactly parallel as the first two came out on Fridays, but The Desolation of Smaug launched to $73.6 million last year, while An Unexpected Journey opened to $84.6 million in 2012.

'Night At The Museum: Secret Of The Tomb' Bids Farewell To Robin Williams


Robin Williams Ben Stiller

This year's sequel 'Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb' may not be particularly notable as a special effects action comedy, but it's notable for containing Robin Williams' final performance, a third turn as a waxwork of Teddy Roosevelt brought to life in a New York museum. This time he travels to London for more antics at the British Museum.

When Williams died in August at age 63, he had completed his work on the film. So director Shawn Levy found it very emotional returning to the editing room after Williams' death. "It's sad, but I do feel in some weird way honoured to be serving this legacy of work, this legacy of performances of which this will be his last," he said. "It will be around long after him and long after all of us."

Night At The Museum: Secret Of The Tomb Review


Good

Now in its third instalment, it's clearer than ever that this franchise is based on one joke that has been stretched far beyond the breaking point. And not too cleverly at that. Fortunately, this movie retains much of the deranged idiocy that made the second part rather enjoyable. So it's watchable even if there aren't many new ideas, and even if filmmaker Shawn Levy is far too happy to settle for unnecessary digital effects work where a bit of character comedy would have been much more engaging.

Back on the job as a night watchman in New York, Larry (Ben Stiller) is now orchestrating the museum exhibits when they come to life to provide spectacular shows for visitors who think this is all a special effect. Even his boss (Ricky Gervais) isn't sure what's really going on. But when a glitch in the magical Ancient Egyptian powers causes chaos, Larry learns that he needs to travel to London so he can reunite Ahkmenrah (Rami Malek) with his father (Ben Kingsley), who's on display at the British Museum. Larry's teen son Nick (Skyler Gisondo) comes along, as do his revived pals Teddy Roosevelt (Robin Williams), tiny soldiers Octavius and Jedediah (Steve Coogan and Owen Wilson) and others. But in London, while sneaking around local night guard Tilly (Rebel Wilson), Larry's team awakens a statue of the knight Lancelot (Dan Stevens), who dives into their quest with rather a bit too much gusto.

Until Lancelot turns up, everything about the film feels oddly tired, from the starry cameos to effects work that strains to be clever. Then Stevens injects a badly needed jolt of blue-eyed charisma and warped comical timing that makes the rest of the movie rather good fun. Rebel Wilson's side-plot is also rather amusing, with some wonderfully ridiculous touches. And even the cameos get better, notably a scene on a West End stage that's genuinely inspired silliness. Coogan and Wilson offer some raucous banter to accompany everything that happens, and Stiller kind of hangs on for dear life. But the filmmakers don't really care about these characters; they're just trying to create something visually impressive that's also goofy fun.

Is 'Night At The Museum: Secret Of The Tomb' Any Good? "Meh"


Ben Stiller

We've got some serious heavyweight battles at the box-office this weekend, with the previously leaked Annie, The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies, and family-comedy Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb all vying for the Christmas top spot. Welcoming back Ben Stiller as Larry, Secret of the Tomb spans the whole globe and welcomes new characters embarking on an epic quest. But is it any good?

The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty Review


Good

One of those swoony American dramas that explores life in all its wondrousness, this film will quickly annoy more cynical viewers. But others will find it a warmly inspirational story about breaking out of our dull routines to live life fully. It's gorgeously shot and edited, but a rougher edge might have made it easier to identify with.

Walter Mitty (Stiller) is a daydreamer who manages photographic negatives at Life magazine. Not only is his job deeply redundant in the age of digital photography, but Life is in the process of being downsized by a corporate henchman (Scott). And as they prepare the last print edition, Walter is in trouble because he can't locate an important negative sent to him by an old-school photographer (Penn). So he turns to Cheryl (Wiig), a colleague he secretly has a crush on, for help. And he finally gets the courage to make his dream to see the world a reality as he travels to remote Greenland and beyond to find the photographer.

The film takes the time to set up Walter's fantasy life with superbly rendered effects sequences before sending him out into the real world. So we really feel the weight of these new experiences for Walter. And as a director, Stiller shamelessly punches every emotional note with vivid photography, surging music and wide-eyed performances. The problem is that the characters are never much more than cartoons, defined by one or two key traits. At least the actors all do the best they can to add resonant details.

Walter Mitty is an exceptionally ordinary man who has never dared venture out into the world or, indeed, made any effort to have some fun closer to home. In a bid to break his cycle of breakfast, work, dinner and bed, he signs up to a dating site but soon finds that his bland life doesn't really leave him much in the way of valuable dating assets. He wishes he could talk to his stunning colleague Cheryl, though when he does, he finds himself suddenly liberated. She teaches him that life is less about existing, and more about bravely living and doing things you're afraid of. Still terrified, he makes a miraculously impulsive decision to embark on a trip of a lifetime, seeking adventures in the North Pole, the Himalayan mountains and shark infested oceans. Will his death-defying journey transform him into the free-spirited, desirable and confident man he has also dreamed of being?

This incredible comedy adventure has been based a short story from the 1939 book 'My World and Welcome to It' by James Thurber. Ben Stiller ('Tropic Thunder', 'Zoolander', 'The Cable Guy') stars in and directs this movie with a screenplay by Steve Conrad ('The Weather Man', 'The Pursuit of Happyness'). 'The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty' will be released in the UK on December 26th 2013.

In a new comedic adaptation of James Thurber's short story The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Ben Stiller plays a spineless proof-reader for a magazine publishing firm. He's incapable of standing up for himself and so retreats into a fantasy world where he is cool, poised, heroic and self-assured.

Amanda Seyfried Wants Her 'Beautiful, Huge Breasts' Back!


Amanda Seyfried Juno Temple Ellen Degeneres Noah Baumbach Adam Driver Ben Stiller Greta Gerwig Naomi Watts James Franco Peter Sarsgaard

Les Miserables actress Amanda Seyfried says she lost her "beautiful, huge breasts" after moving to Hollywood to pursue a career in movies. The 27-year-old - who plays Linda Lovelace in a forthcoming biopic - called in on the Ellen Degeneres show this week to discuss her beginnings.

"I looked way better when I was 15. I had beautiful, huge breasts!" the actress explained, "And then I came to Hollywood and I was like I gotta lose weight. I gotta look thin. I gotta get fit. And I lost them a little bit." It seems she lost more than "a little bit," telling DeGeneres she was an D cup though that she doesn't miss them, "...because they were ... uncomfortable."

Despite her own decisions, Seyfried warned, "I was feminine. I had some nice curves. And I think we should appreciate that instead of trying to get rid of everything."

Is Noah Baumbach's 'Frances Ha' The New 'Annie Hall'?


Greta Gerwig Noah Baumbach Ben Stiller Woody Allen

Frances Ha, the new movie starring Greta Gerwig as an apprentice dancer in New York, has been critically acclaimed ahead of its release this week. The movie, by Noah Baumbach (Squid And The Whale, Margot At The Wedding), follows a young woman named Frances who lives with her best friends Sophie, until she moves out to live with another pal.

Gerwig and Baumbach first collaborated in 2010's Greenberg, starring Ben Stiller, though decided to work together again and began exchanging ideas which ultimately became the co-written script for Frances Ha. The movie is shot in black-and-white to emulate parts in Woody Allen's Manhattan (1979) and the movie is gaining comparisons to the director's most famous work, Annie Hall (1977). The film boasts a 92% score on reviews aggregating website Rotten Tomatoes (Star Trek Into Darkness 81%, Iron Man 78%) and critics have been unanimous in their praise. "An American independent film (shot in luminous black and white by Sam Levy) that feels off the cuff but is in fact exactly made by a filmmaker in total control of his resources," said Kenneth Turan of the Los Angeles Times. John Anderson of the Wall Street Journal said, "Perhaps Ms. Gerwig is the greatest actress alive. And maybe "Frances Ha" is just the ghost orchid of independent cinema."

Ben Stiller Hires American Rock Guitarist To Pen 'Dodgeball 2'


Ben Stiller Vince Vaughn Clay Tarver

Ben Stiller's Red Hour Films has hired American guitarist and writer Clay Tarver to pen the script for Dodgeball 2, the follow-up to the 2004 hit comedy. The production company run by Stiller and Stuart Cornfeld have gotten the go-ahead from Fox to make a sequel and quickly confirmed Tarver as the screenwriter.

Tarver was co-founder and lead guitarist with Boston hard rock band Bullet LaVolta, though is perhaps best known for his work with Chavez , the progressive hard rock band that he formed with Matt Sweeney, Scott Marshall and James Lo in the 90s. He later turned his hand to writing and co-writer the 2001 thriller Joy Ride with Star Wars Episode 7 director J.J. Abrams. Tarver is currently working on Quantum Hoops, another movie being produced by Red Hour, about a nerdy basketball team at Caltech. He wrote the movie Men Making Music, about the world of competitive barbershop quartets and worked with Mike Judge on Meat In The Freezer, a satire about hunting for HBO films.

Dodgeball, which grossed over $114 million domestically, centered on a group of misfits gym workers who enter a dodgeball competition in order to defeat an encroaching corporate gym run by Stiller. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn will star in the sequel, though it's unclear whether the likes of Christine Taylor, Justin Long and Jason Bateman will return. The plot will reportedly see the former rivals teaming up to thwart an even bigger threat in the fitness world.

Arrested Development Season 4 Will See Ben Stiller Return!


Ben Stiller

As if the thought of Arrested Development returning isn’t already exciting enough for comedy fans (and it is), it’s been revealed that Ben Stiller will be returning to the cult comedy!

As has previously been announced, the devoutly followed but niche comedy will be returning after seven years away for a fourth season, to be shown on internet streaming site Netflix. The comedy only lasted for three seasons between 2003 and 2006 but played an important in the burgeoning careers of Jason Bateman, David Cross and, most notably, Michael Cera. All of those will be returning for the new series, alongside the likes of Will Arnett, Jeffrey Tambor and Portia De Rossi, and they’ll be joined by Ben Stiller. Those who remember the dysfunctional family program from the first time round might recall Stiller played the rival magician to Arnett’s character Gob, Tony Wonder. Wonder appeared as a recurring character in season two and three of Arrested Development where he was famed for being able to make any amount of objects appear from places as unbelievable as his nostrils and eyelids. It’s not been revealed where he’ll fit into the show this time round, with the plot being kept secret.

However, Entertainment Weekly have pointed out that Stiller will join a host of guesting stars, including Seth Rogan, Kristen Wiig, Conan O’Brien, Isla Fisher and John Slattery.

Savages Still1. Savages

This heavy-handed drug-war thriller proves that Oliver Stone has lost the ability to tell a balanced story. And the all-star cast seems clueless about why they're here. Except a vamping Salma Hayek.

Jennifer Aniston And Others Show Up To Celebrate Ben Stiller


Jennifer Aniston Justin Theroux Ben Stiller

Whether he's being a complete Focker, has semen hanging from his ear, or suffering terribly after eating a curry, Ben Stiller has delighted us all with laugh-out-loud roles and movies for decades (yeah, we are that old! Reality Bites... is almost 20 years old). So it seems apt that he be awarded and congratulated for all that he's done for comedy. On hand to celebrate him personally were celebrity power couple, Justin Theroux, who has worked with Stiller for a long time, and his new fiancée Jennifer Aniston.

Aniston showed off her enormous engagement rock to her friends when they showed up, reports E!. Aniston gave a tribute in person, as well as appearing in her husband-to-be's own tribute, but comedically refusing to comment on the video that Theroux had made, saying that she'd be there in person- which she was, as reported by People. Aniston's own offering was a montage of Stiller's romantic scenes. 

Introducing the video she said: "All right, I'm here to introduce what every lady in this room has been waiting for. And that would be Ben Stiller's lover package. Ben's package is surprisingly large, very expansive, and its lasting power speaks for itself. It spans the length of his manhood - from boyish rogue in Reality Bites, to tender husband and father in the Focker flicks." Continuing, "He is adorable. He's sensitive. He's shockingly ripped. And if you don't believe me, I'd suggest pulling out your iPhone and Google-ing 'Stiller Hawaii beach.' Trust me, it's intense." We googled. He's totally ripped.
