The cast of 'Entourage' open up about what the movie is really about.
Ever since the TV series wrapped up its eighth season in 2013, an Entourage movie has been on the cards. Producer Mark Wahlberg says it was always a plan to take the characters to the big screen.
The cast of 'Entourage' open up about the accuracies of the movie
"A lot of fans were very upset that it wasn't on air anymore," he says, "and everywhere I'd go, people asked me when the Entourage movie was coming. So I just kept pushing the project uphill. Every time I had a chance to talk about it in a meeting, I would talk about it. I'd have financed it myself, if I had to do it!"

Both shameless and shamelessly entertaining, this relentlessly boyish movie carries on exactly as the TV show left off after its eight-season run. In fact, it actually feels like a ninth season was condensed into 104 minutes, as it carries on with the same misogynistic approach, leering at women while laughing at the inappropriate behaviour of men. But these guys still have their charm, and when they get together the screen lights up with snappy banter and a hilariously knowing depiction of how crazy life is within the movie industry.
It's been four years since we last saw them, and Vince (Adrien Grenier) is just out of a disastrous marriage, yearning to direct his next movie, a raving sci-fi take on Jeckyll and Hyde. As luck would have it, his loyal ex-agent Ari (Jeremy Piven) is now a studio boss, so he lets him make the movie with his best pal Eric (Kevin Connolly) as producer, his older brother Johnny (Kevin Dillon) in a key supporting role and his pal Turtle (Jerry Ferrara) as their driver. But the Texan moneybags (Billy Bob Thornton) is dubious about all of this, and sends his know-it-all son Travis (Haley Joel Osment) to keep an eye on post-production. And Travis has some ideas of his own, much to everyone's horror.
While the rather bland Grenier holds the centre as Vince, the rest of the characters are given subplots to run with. Ari is in marriage counselling because he can't tear himself from his work; Eric goes through a few more women while preparing for his ex-girlfriend to give birth to their child; Johnny hopes this small role might finally kickstart his career; Turtle pursues a relationship with MMA champion-turned actress Ronda Rousey; and Travis is jealous of how much time Vince is spending with model-turned-actress Emily Ratajkowski. None of these plots have anywhere to go, but they pass the time amiably.

The jury is still out on Entourage: The Movie.
In the light of news that an Entourage movie is finally out, the internet is now wondering – is there any more story left to tell? Of course there are, according to creator Doug Ellin. The big screen version of the critical-darling-turned-nostalgia-watch show came out Friday and the critics are about to have their say.
Adrian Grenier plays the lead character - the talented, but flighty actor Vincent Chase.
Entourage was one of HBO’s highest-rated half-hour shows, and some seasons the highest, during its run, but viewership still just topped out at an average of 8.3 million (including on-demand and digital viewing) during Season 6. And its dismal performance in syndication, both on Tribune stations and later on Spike, raises a caution flag.

The world of acting is no longer enough for superstar Vincent Chase, whose now looking at a career in directing. With his lifestyle having taken a significant overhaul following several years of hedonism (though it might not seem like it), Ari Gold is still acting as his agent despite his new job as CEO of Time Warner and is willing to give his client a shot at what he wants to do - even if no-one else seems to think he can pull off directing. He lands a $100 million budget but things get complicated when he goes over by $15 million. Vince isn't overly concerned with the film becoming a flop, but it could mean the end of Ari's career before its started if it doesn't come through.

With such a great cast of cameos during its time on HBO, 'Entourage' had better have something impressive lined up for its feature film. Luckily, it certainly does.
Cameo appearances can make for some of the greatest moments in movies. Remember seeing Alice Cooper in 'Wayne's World'? Stan Lee in 'Mall Rats'? Mike Tyson in 'The Hangover'? Or, possibly the greatest cameo of all time, Bill Murray in 'Zombieland'? Well, for a show set in and around Hollywood, based on the exploits of rapper/actor/executive producer Mark Wahlberg, it was understandable why HBO's 'Entourage' has more than its fair share of A-list cameos.
'Entourage' is set to hit US theatres on 5th June, 2015.
Over the course of its seven-year runtime, 'Entourage' racked up a very impressive list of cameo performances, including Jessica Alba, Scarlett Johansson, Hugh Hefner, Peter Dinklage, James Cameron, Seth Green, Snoop Dogg, Peter Jackson - you get the idea. There were an awful lot of people getting involved in 'Entourage', so it stands to reason that when the trailer for the feature adaptation launched, people were eagerly looking to see who would be making an appearance outside of the main cast.

Larry David proves, once again, why he's one of the world's best sports fans.
The Los Angeles Kings capitalized on the New York Rangers' hangover from an energy-sapping seven games series with Chicago by scoring a 3-2 win over their east-coast rivals in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals. The final few minutes were frantic and the Kings were unusually scrappy, though managed to hold on in a game that Rangers veteran Brad Richards knew was a missed opportunity.
