Netflix Says It Wants To Show 'The Interview'


James Franco Seth Rogen Netflix

The revival of The Interview, which so recently seemed to be doomed to the dustbin of movie history, continues unabated. Following the remarkable box office figures returned upon its limited release across the States, streaming service Netflix has tentatively expressed an interest in making the film available to its subscribers.

On Wednesday, Netflix’s chief content officer Ted Sarandos said in a press conference “People want to see the movie and we want to be able to deliver the movie.” However, he would not elaborate on the details of any efforts to secure the film. Sony Pictures had no comment on the possibility of such a deal either.

So The Interview has received a fair bit of backlash for turning a complex political conflict into a raging bro fest, but creators Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and Dan Sterling are laughing all the way to the bank. It didn’t matter that the Sony hack and threats resulted in the movie being pulled from theatres. After its Wednesday release, The Interview made $15 million on online sales alone.

The Interview, the now very, very controversial new comedy from Seth Rogen and James Franco has had it glitzy New York premiere cancelled after another threat was made by the group thought to be behind the recent Sony hack.

The film, which centres on an attempted assassination of North Korean president Kim Jong Un, was supposed to have its big premiere at Manhattan's Sunshine Cinema on Thursday evening (December 18th).

Sony Leak: Sony Terrified Of "Desperately Unfunny" Movie 'The Interview'


Seth Rogen James Franco

There was absolutely an air of uncertainty about Amy Pascal's leaked emails to Seth Rogen. The comedy actor was unwilling to make edits to his controversial movie The Interview but, on the face of it, Pascal seemed a little disinterested anyway. 

The InterviewSeth Rogen [L] and James Franco [R] star in The Interview, though the executives have their doubts

The executives ended up getting their way and altering the gory final scene in the movie, during which Kim Jong Un's head explodes and is set aflame. However, in a new set of leaked emails, it appears the head honchos hate the entire movie anyway, calling it too offensive, "desperately unfunny" and likely to fail given the starring berth of James Franco.

'The Interview': Why It Could Only Ever Have Been James Franco And Seth Rogen


James Franco Seth Rogen Evan Goldberg Lizzy Caplan

'The Interview' has already become arguably the most controversial comedy of the moment, with its less than sensitive approach to the crisis in North Korea. Nonetheless, it's another tremendously funny venture from a comedy duo we just can't get enough of.

Seth Rogen and James Franco in The Interview poster
Franco and Rogen are the comedy duo of the moment

James Franco and Seth Rogen appear to be simply inseparable at the moment; having been best buddies since meeting on the set of late nineties show 'Freaks and Geeks', the pair have collaborated  on numerous projects such as 2008's Golden Globe nominated 'Pineapple Express', Evan Goldberg's memorable 'This Is the End' (in which they play themselves) and Franco's own film adaptation of William Faulkner's 'The Sound and the Fury' (yeah, we couldn't imagine them doing 'serious' either).

The Interview - Trailer & Featurettes


David Skylark (James Franco) is a worldwide celebrity. His talk show is watched everyone, including the leader of North Korea, Kim Jong-un. Skylark's producer Aaron Rapoport (Seth Rogan), is beginning to doubt the direction of the show and Skylark's sell-out nature. But everything changes when they organise an interview with Kim Jong-un. Suddenly, they are approached by the CIA, offering them a mission to assassinate the world leader. From there, they engage in a ridiculous secret mission, trying to arrange the interview with Skylark being alone in a room with Jong-un and allowing for the assassination.

Third Person Review


Good

There are moments when this three-strand drama almost ascends to the emotional resonance of writer-director Paul Haggis' Oscar-winning 2004 movie Crash. Perhaps even more ambitious, this film is exploring issues of creativity, attraction and grief, but Haggis puts so much effort into the literary trickery that he fails to create characters the audience can connect with. So the drama ends up being interesting but never moving.

The central plot-thread is in Paris, where blocked writer Michael (Liam Neeson) is holed up in a hotel after leaving his wife (Kim Basinger) and arranging to meet his whip-smart mistress Anna (Olivia Wilde). But their witty romance seems to get entangled with his struggle to write a new novel. Meanwhile in Rome, dodgy American businessman Scott (Adrien Brody) meets Monika (Moran Atias), a sexy Roma woman trying to rescue her kidnapped daughter from local gangsters. With his own haunting back-story involving a lost child, Scott offers to help. And in New York, fallen soap-star Julia (Mila Kunis) has hired a lawyer (Maria Bello) in an effort to get custody of her son from her wealthy-painter ex (James Franco). But her life has gone so far off the rails that it's unlikely any judge will see things her way.

There's a clear sense that these storylines are swirling around in Michael's head as he tries to write. Each character has parent-child issues, including the event that sent Michael's career into a downward spiral. But Haggis never quite defines all of this, leaving ideas and themes dangling everywhere without connecting them to authentic people or experiences. So it's very difficult to get involved in any of the story strands, even though the actors deliver open, raw performances. Kunis has the film's strongest role, a complex journey into the aching soul of a mother, and she plays it beautifully. And Bello finds some moments of consuming emotion in her smaller part. Everything else feels rather cliched, from Neeson and Wilde's cute-prickly romantic games to Brody's journey to the dark side of Italy.

Gia Coppola's Palo Alto Is A Next-Generation Movie


Gia Coppola James Franco Emma Roberts Jack Kilmer

One of the more striking things about the new multi-strand teen drama Palo Alto is how it features a series of second and third-generation artists and rising stars. It's certainly a film that looks forwards, crafting a very different style of teen drama than anything we've seen before.

James Franco & Emma Roberts in Palo AltoJames Franco & Emma Roberts in Palo Alto

Intriguingly, the film most closely resembles writer-director Gia Coppola's Aunt Sofia's debut film The Virgin Suicides (1999), another evocative teen movie that centred on emotions rather than overt plot points. Gia is also of course the granddaughter of master filmmaker Francis (of The Godfather and Apocalyse Now fame). Her famous cousins include Nicolas Cage and Jason Schwartzman, whose mother Talia Shire (best known as Adrian in Rocky) also appears in Palo Alto.

Palo Alto Review


Excellent

James Franco's collection of autobiographical short stories is adapted into a remarkably evocative film by Gia Coppola, granddaughter of Francis. And the film's next-generation credentials don't end there. It stars Emma Roberts (daughter of Eric) and Jack Kilmer (son of Val), superb young actors who bring their characters to vivid life even as multiple story strands weave around them. And what makes the film important is its willingness to present teens authentically, often in ways parents probably wish they didn't know about.

It's set in suburban Northern California, where high school teen April (Roberts) worries that she's the last virgin in her class. She's secretly in love with Teddy (Kilmer), and he likes her too, but everyone thinks he's having a fling with the class slut (Zoe Levin). So while babysitting one night for her soccer coach (Franco), she is both startled and thrilled when he makes a move on her. Meanwhile, Teddy's best pal Fred (Nat Wolff) is causing chaos everywhere he goes, as the school's teens go from party to party indulging in alcohol and drugs, testing the boundaries of authority. And their parents seem fairly oblivious to all of this.

Coppola shoots and edits the film in a way that's deeply personal, focussing on the inner lives of the characters rather than the gyrations of the various plot strands. This gives the film a surprisingly cohesive tone, linking everything together into a single tale of young people trying to work out a path to adulthood in a society full of mixed messages. And things rarely go as expected. For example, Teddy is sure he'll go to prison when he crashes his car while driving stoned, but he is given a second chance. And he discovers that doing community service is actually rather enjoyable.

Continue reading: Palo Alto Review

Palo Alto Trailer


April (Emma Roberts) is a shy young girl attending high school in Palo Alto, California. While she has an unrequited crush on Teddy (Jack Kilmer), a flirtatious relationship with her soccer coach, Mr. B (James Franco) is steadily developing into something more physical and altogether more dangerous. At the same time, in the same town, a girl named Emily (Zoe Levin) is the polar opposite of April. Emily indulges in sexual interactions with Teddy and his friend Fred (Nat Wolff) who are themselves engaging in acts of juvenile destruction. But as the kids are forced together as their paths collide, questions arise about the nature of love, lust, boredom, and recklessness in the modern youth culture.

Lindsay Lohan Comments On James Franco Claiming Her Sex-List Is Wrong


James Franco

Lindsay Lohan was left feeling embarrassed when a list of all the famous people she had slept with, which included 36 high-profile stars, was leaked to the public back in March. But to make things worse, someone on that list claims the 28 year-old actress is a liar.

Zac Efron, Orlando Bloom, Justin Timberlake, Adam Levine, Heath Ledger, Benicio Del Toro, and Colin Farrell, are just some of the individuals Lohan has supposedly had sex with, but James Franco is the only person who has come forward to deny this allegation.

James Franco And Seth Rogen's New Comedy 'The Interview' Pushed Back To December


James Franco Seth Rogen

Originally scheduled to release in October, The Interview is co-directed by Evan Goldberg (who also directed This is the End) and Seth Rogen, and is based around a celebrity talk show host (Franco) and his producer (Rogen) who are tasked with assasinating North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. The film has upset North Korea, who unsurprisingly aren't seeing the funny side, but as it turns out, audiences won't be seeing it either- at least, not for another two months.

The Interview

Seth Rogen Vs. North Korea: Seth Rogen should be feeling a little nervous right now. The actor and funnyman, who is preparing for the fall release of new movie The Interview, has been threatened after North Korea issued an official complaint to the UN. The shady country raised its hackles over the plot of Rogen's new movie, which depicts a plot to kill dictator Kim Jong-Un. This is unbelievable. If you want to thumb your nose at the Supreme Leader, go giggle at the poster - it's hilarious.

Clooney got angry, the Mail apologised, Clooney got angrier.

Seth Rogen James Franco Lizzy Caplan Evan Goldberg

The first trailer for James Franco and Seth Rogen's new movie The Interview rolled out online on Wednesday night (June 11, 2014) giving fans their first look at the frankly bizarre comedy that sees a would-be interviewer and his producer buddy tasked with assassinating North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. Rogen had tweeted out the stunning poster a couple of hours before. 

The Interview poster

Franco plays the clueless tabloid TV presenter who is informed that Jong-un is a fan of his low-brow show and wants him to become the first western journalist to quiz him. Before he and his pal head out to the east, they are contacted by the CIA who want to capitalize on the opportunity to get close to the fearsome leader. By the looks of the trailer, nothing goes to plan.

James Franco Wrote A Short Story... And It Stars Lindsay Lohan


James Franco Lindsay Lohan

Besides starring in movies, producing movies, working for various diplomas and occasionally “chatting” with underage fans, James Franco apparently finds time for literary pursuits – like the short story he recently penned for Vice magazine. Franco’s work will be published in the fiction issue of Vice and centers on a character called “Lindsay Lohan”. Now there’s an unexpected plot twist.

James Franco
James Franco wrote a short story about Lindsay Lohan.

The story reads much less like fiction than actual recollections from Franco’s life, but we’ll never know. In it, Franco visits Lohan in the Chateau Marmont hotel (from where Lohan was once reportedly banned thanks to an unpaid bill). He reads her Salinger stories, listens to her ramble about her memories, and zones out on a giant Gucci billboard of himself outside. But he still plays with the idea of whether the entire encounter is made up, writing: "Do you think I've created this? This dragon girl, lion girl, Hollywood hellion, terror of Sunset Boulevard, minor in the clubs, Chateau Demon? Do you think this is me?"

James Franco Writes ‘Fictional’ Story About NOT Sleeping With A Girl Named Lindsay Lohan


James Franco Lindsay Lohan

When James Franco’s name appeared on Lindsay Lohan’s leaked ‘sex list’ one of the great sexual mysteries of our time began. Did James Franco actually sleep with Lindsay Lohan? We asked....if he didn't, why would she say he did? Then there was the more important question of, why are we even discussing this? Well apparently there’s still more to be discussed on this one as in the latest development, Franco has penned a fictional story about not sleeping with a girl named Lindsay Lohan, a story similar to the one he told Howard Stern (about not sleeping with a girl named Lindsay Lohan). Confusing? A little, yes, but just wait till you read said story, prepare for any love you had left for Franco to slowly evaporate.

James FrancoJames Franco: did not sleep with the real or fictional Lindsay Lohan, apparently

The story, entitled Bungalow 89, has been published in Vice’s fiction issue, so you can kind of guess what we might be in for. James Franco plus Vice sounds like it could be a recipe for try hard artsy junk. But when you add in a few spoonfuls of J.D. Salinger, you’ve got a yourself feast so rich in pretentiousness you’ll need a sick bag to make it through the first few paragraphs.

Emma Watson Joins The List Of Celebrity Graduates


Emma Watson John Legend James Franco Lupita Nyong'o

It’s no Hogwarts, but it just might be the next best thing. Actress Emma Watson, best known for her role as Hermione Granger in the hit franchise Harry Potter, recently graduated from the Ivy League school Brown University for a degree in English literature. Enrolling in the school in 2009, the degree had been a work in progress as Watson took breaks in between to finish off the remaining Harry Potter films, and she even worked on her schooling abroad as she studied at Oxford University in England, as well. You’d think adapting to the college life could be difficult for someone with such a star status, but Watson said it was pretty easy adjusting. "I've never even been asked for an autograph on campus," she said in an interview in 2013. "I threw a party for nearly 100 students and not a single person put a photo on Facebook."

Emma Watson Red CarpetEmma Watson graduated from Brown University

Watson joins the list of quite a few celebrities that have graduated from top tier schools, and it’s an admirable accomplishment whether it was done before they became famous, or after. In fact, there’s probably a ton of your favorite celebrities that you never even knew had a degree in some weird categories completely unrelated to their career choice. Either way, for these actors and musicians, they’ve proven that at one point or another, an A mark was once a more important accolade than an Oscar or a Grammy.

Is There Method To James Franco's Madness?
