Seth Rogen, Diana Bang, Evan Goldberg and Dan Sterling - ****File Photo** * SONY BOSSES CANCEL THE INTERVIEW RELEASE Sony Pictures executives have officially pulled plans to release SETH ROGEN and JAMES FRANCO's controversial new comedy THE INTERVIEW after hackers threatened the safety of filmgoers. The movie, about two Americans who set out on a mission to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, was due to hit cinemas in the U.S. and Canada on Christmas Day (25Dec14), but its release was thrown into doubt this week (begs15Dec14) after the cyber criminals responsible for stealing material from Sony's databases threatened to carry out 9/11-style terrorist attacks on any theatres screening the film. Officials from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) insisted there was "no credible intelligence to indicate an active plot against movie theatres within the United States," but the worrying missive prompted the cancellation of The Interview's New York premiere on Thursday (18Dec14), while Rogen and Franco scrapped all of their promotional appearances. On Wednesday (17Dec14), five of America's top movie theatre chains announced they would not be screening the comedy in light of the security threats, and now Sony bosses have completely axed The Interview's release. A statement released by Sony representatives reads: "In light of the decision by the majority of our exhibitors not to show the film The Interview, we have decided not to move forward with the planned December 25 theatrical release. We respect and understand our partners' decision and, of course, completely share their paramount interest in the safety of employees and theater-goers. "Sony Pictures has been the victim of an unprecedented criminal assault against our employees, our customers, and our business. Those who attacked us stole our intellectual property, private emails, and sensitive and proprietary material, and sought to destroy our spirit and our morale - all apparently to thwart the release of a movie they did not like.

Five Other Celebs Who Probably Want To Punch Justin Bieber


Justin Bieber Orlando Bloom Seth Rogen Drake Bell Leonardo Dicaprio Keyshawn Johnson Jon Bon Jovi

We're pretty sure that Orlando Bloom has managed to win over a good few thousand more fans after striking a fierce blow in the direction of Justin Bieber's head, but we can think of quite a few other stars who wouldn't mind a go either.

Justin Bieber at Cannes 2014
Come and have a go!

The story goes that Bieber met the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' actor at Cipriani restaurant in Miami where he extended a hand which Bloom did not shake. Then things start to get a bit sketchy: some sources claim he said, 'She was good' to Bloom, in reference to his alleged relationship with his ex-wife Victoria's Secret model Miranda Kerr, while TMZ claims Bieber shouted 'What's up, bitch?' at the actor. Either way, eyewitnesses reveal Bloom threw a good punch at the singer - to most of the audience's utter delight by the sound of things - though it still isn't clear whether or not any damage was caused.

A Week In News: North Korea Threatens Seth Rogen, George Clooney Gets Angry, And Robin Thicke Is Knocked Out


Seth Rogen Garth Brooks Robin Thicke George Clooney James Franco Uzo Aduba Ben Affleck Peter Capaldi

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.

George Clooney Vs. The Daily Mail: George Clooney should only have seating arrangements and wedding cake tasting on his mind at the moment but the Gravity actor has had to engage in battle with The Daily Mail over comments the tabloid made alleging that the mother of Clooney's fiancée, Amal Alamuddin, was not happy with her daughters upcoming nuptials on religious grounds - a claim the actor has called a "lie." Clooney got angry, the Mail apologised, Clooney got angrier.

'The Interview': Are Seth Rogen And James Franco About To Start Another World War?


Seth Rogen James Franco

Seth Rogen and James Franco’s brand of stoner comedy isn’t for everyone, but it rarely goes beyond immature jokes, underdog characters and a sideways look at America. Now, it would seem, they’ve annoyed one of the world’s superpowers.

Seth RogenHey, it's Seth Rogen

North Korea, according to the AP, is warning that the release of ‘The Interview’ – in which the U.S government charge Rogen and Franco with assassinating Kim Jong Un – would be an “act of war”.

North Korea's Stance On Seth Rogen & James Franco's The Interview: Unhappy

Turns out, North Korea aren’t happy with The Interview, a film that mocks the country’s communist dictatorship and focuses on the assassination of its leader. Or to put it a different way: James Franco and Seth Rogen just got more free press for their new movie than they or their Columbia Pictures could ever buy.

Seth RogenSeth Rogen is just glad that Kim Jong Un is going to watch his film

“There is a special irony in this storyline as it shows the desperation of the US government and American society,” a spokesman for Mr Kim told The Telegraph.

Forget Franco And Rogen - 'The Interview' Poster Is A Thing Of Beauty


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.

22 Jump Street Review


Very Good

A consistently hilarious stream of in-jokes keeps the audience in fits of laughter even if there's virtually no plot to this follow-up to the 2012 hit 21 Jump Street. Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum revive their amusing double-act to poke fun at sequels and franchises amid silly set-pieces and starry cameos. And it gives filmmakers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller their second terrific comedy of the year, after The Lego Movie.

Following their successful bust of a high school drug ring, undercover officers Schmidt and Jenko (Hill and Tatum) are assigned by their grumpy captain (Ice Cube) to infiltrate a university and track down who's dealing the new drug whyphy. But both get distracted by life on campus: Schmidt begins a romance with Maya (Amber Stevens), while Jenko finds his meathead soul-mate in football teammate Zook (Wyatt Russell). With their partnership in jeopardy, Schmidt and Jenko must refocus on a spring break trip to Mexico, where they discover an old nemesis (Peter Stormare) on the loose.

Using a non-stop series of gags about how follow-up movies are more expensive and less original, the filmmakers go about proving this hypothesis with amusingly overwrought sets and a chaotic, derivative narrative that has very little momentum. Meanwhile, they pack every moment of the film with witty humour that's played expertly by Hill and Tatum, who rekindle their chemistry with a steady barrage of gay double entendre that reveals the movie's true nature as a brom-com. On the other hand, neither the actors nor the filmmakers are willing to push things too far, so they settle for silly vulgarity instead of any black comedy or edgy humour.

Seth Rogen Critic Uploads Video In Face Of Backlash Over Shooting Suggestion


Seth Rogen Judd Apatow

A Washington Post critic drew such a backlash with her suggestion that Seth Rogen's "frat boy" genre of comedy movies inspired Elliot Rodger's recent Californian mass shooting that she has felt compelled to upload a video attempting to explain the comments she made in her article.

"In singling out Neighbors and Judd Apatow, I by no means meant to cast blame on those movies or Judd Apatow's work for this heinous action - obviously not," she says. "The whole reason that I weighed in on this issue was that [Rodger] had created this video on YouTube that seemed to be such a product of the entertainment industry that he did grow up in, literally and also just as a member of the culture."

'Godzilla' Does The Monster Stomp Around Box Office 'Neighbors' With $93M Opening

Silence the doubters! Godzilla has smashed its way to the top of the box office, having earned a monstrous $93.2m on its first weekend. Gareth Edwards' gloomy new take on the popular Japanese tale of a radioactive monster put fellow opener Million Dollar Arm in the dark, leaving the Jon Hamm Disney sports drama a token $10.5 million.

Meanwhile, the Zac Efron-starring comedy Neighbors was pushed down to second in its second week with nearly $26 million in takings - a figure far shy of Godzilla's monster haul - whilst the superhero action sequel, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, clung on to the top three with a confident third week figure of $16.8 million.

"Neighbors" Parties On Top Of Box Office Chart, While Spidey Suffers Massive Drop


Seth Rogen Andrew Garfield Emma Stone

There were big changes in the box office chart this weekend, with Neighbors easily charging past the previous highest earner, The Amazing Spider-Man 2. While Neighbors had one of the highest debuts for an original R-rated comedy with $51,1 million, Spider-Man’s domestic earnings suffered significantly. The superhero flick, starring Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone only made aroumd $37,2 million at home over the Friday-Sunday period – an estimated 59% drop, according to Box Office Mojo. While the home figures are disappointing, the movie is making up for it overseas. To date, it's earned $147.9 million, and is on pace to finish between $210 and $220 million.

Seth Rogen and Zac Efron's collaboration is making a splash.

Neighbors, meanwhile, is following in the proud tradition of R-rated comedies and topped the debuts of hits like The Hangover, The Heat and 21 Jump Street. Seth Rogen in particular should be popping the champagne right about now, since the movie marks the highest grossing debut ever for a live-action Rogen movie ahead of The Green Hornet ($33.5 million).

Seth Rogen's 'Neighbors' Smashes Spider-Man's Party With $45 Million Opening


Seth Rogen Rose Byrne

This was not part of the plan for Sony. It's big-budget superhero sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2 may well have been toppled from the top spot at the box-office after just one week, with Seth Rogen's stonking comedy Neighbors set to take $45 million for the three day weekend.

NeighborsZac Efron is 'Neighbors'

According to Friday afternoon estimate from Variety, the frat-comedy also starring Zac Efron took around $18 million on its first day, including $2.56 million for Thursday late night shows. That would put Neighbors on track for $41 million-$45 million, enough to beat Spider-Man which was tracking for around $12 million on Friday for an overall total of around $40 million.

Neighbors [Bad Neighbours] Review


Excellent

There's a blast of raucous energy to this lively comedy that sets it apart from the pack; aside from a willingness to get deeply rude and incorrect, the movie is actually very funny. It helps that it's packed with snappy characters and witty dialogue, and that the cast makes the gratuitously vulgar humour come to life in surprising ways.

It opens with happy couple Mac and Kelly (Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne), whose idyllic life with their ridiculously cute baby is interrupted when a frat house moves in next door. They want to be cool about it, so introduce themselves and nicely ask the fraternity leaders Teddy and Pete (Zac Efron and Dave Franco) to keep it down. They even indulge in a bit of partying themselves. But the noise only gets louder, and when Mac and Kelly call the cops in a moment of desperation, they spark a war that escalates into a series of crazy practical jokes. This also gets the fraternity in trouble with their university administrator (Lisa Kudrow), which only fuels the battle.

Director Nicholas Stoller (The Five-Year Engagement) keeps things moving briskly, packing every scene with shamelessly coarse humour. For every joke that falls flat (like a breast-feeding set-piece), there are five more gags immediately following that generate gut-busting laughter. While the plot is little more than a series of elaborate pranks, there's an unstoppable momentum that builds to a riotous party climax. Even more important is the way the actors are allowed to twist their stereotypical characters to add some meaningful subtext.

Will Poulter's 'Plastic' Is Early Contender For Worst Movie Of 2014


Will Poulter Seth Rogen Zac Efron

Will Poulter. You know Will Poulter. He won a BAFTA. He was the rap-singing teen in We're The Millers - which was actually quite good. But now he's made a bad movie. Which is fine. But we're going to need to tell you about it, in case you go and waste £9.60 this weekend.

Will PoulterWill Poulter [R] Stars in 'Plastic'

It's called Plastic, and follows the story of Sam & Fordy who run a credit card fraud scheme. However, when they steal money from the wrong guy, they find themselves threatened by a scary and downright sadistic gangster. Somehow, the pair must raise £5 million and pull off a daring diamond heist to clear the debt.

'Bad Neighbours' Reviews: Cheap, Nasty, Juvenile And Brilliant


Seth Rogen Zac Efron

Part frat comedy, part coming-of age-story, part-generational warfare and part slapstick comedy, ‘Bad Neighbors’ portrays a battle between the middle class utopia that is suburban America, and the rebellious, newly freed ethos adopted by a particularly vitriolic fraternity. It’s Efron v Rogen.

Bad NeighborsZac Efron in 'Bad Neighbours'

The obvious contrast here is that of the Hollywood hunk and the alternative geek; Rogen has carved out a strong and reliable fan base with movies like Superbad and Pineapple Express, even if the critics aren’t always on his side. While Mr. Braff is certainly trying to mould his career towards serous dramatic roles, while comedy stints like this – for an young-adult audience – are certainly… well paid.

A war of words has been waging on social media between those who believe Kim Kardashian is the height of fashion and sophistication and those who feel her name should not be mentioned in the same sentence as such words. Since she appeared on the cover of US Vogue with fiancé Kanye West, a number of couples have stepped forward to show they can out do the loved up couple. These aren't just any couples either: Miss Piggy and Kermit as well as James Franco and Seth Rogen have made their own photographic contribution to the Kimye Vogue debate.

Kim Kardashian wangled the cover of US Vogue, realised on Friday (21st March).

Miss Piggy is a style icon. No one can possibly deny this: she can sing (sort of); dance (most definitely); has worked for Vogue (as a Plus Size Editor); and has graced our screens since 1974. She's one of the greatest stars of all time, yet she was still pipped to the cover of Vogue by none other than the reigning Queen of popular culture, Kim Kardashian. We can weep at the cruel injustice - everyone knows Miss Piggy and her beau are considerably more Vogue friendly than Kardashian and Kanye but alas it was not meant to be.

Judd Apatow James Franco Seth Rogen Jason Segel

Freaks and Geeks’ may have only lasted for one season, but the show has had an enduring legacy, not least of all for producer Judd Apatow who has just called his whole career 'revenge' for its cancellation. With just 18 episodes (only 12 of which NBC aired), how can such a little show have made such a big impact?  Well you only have to look at the list of people who came together on the ‘Freaks and Geeks’ set to understand while we’re still talking about it 14 years later. James Franco, Seth Rogen and Jason Segel are just a few of the names who started their careers in the McKinley high cafeteria.

For those who care about films in the slightest, South by Southwest is the place to be this week. The conference, which runs March 7th through March 16th in Austin, Texas, is the place for enthusiasts to see the latest films, get album previews and generally have tons of fun. So, four days into SXSW, what are the highlights?

The VM cast was out in full force at SXSW.

First of all, there was Seth Rogen and Zac Efron’s Neighbors, which pits Rogen against Efron in a battle for dominance over a suburban street. In this comedy, directed by Nicholas Stoller from a script by Andrew J. Cohen and Brendan O’Brien, Rogen plays one half of a newly married couple, who are just settling into their cozy suburban nest. Efron and his band of frat boys, however, are there to ruin everything. According to THR, Neighbors got big laughs at its Paramount Theater premiere, so it might be one to look out for later in the year.

Senators Leave Before Seth Rogen's Moving Appeal In The Name Of Alzheimer's Sufferers


Seth Rogen Lauren Miller

Most film fans probably know Seth Rogen as the slightly immature lead of films like Pineapple Express, Knocked Up and This Is The End. Real-life Rogen, however, had a serious problem on his mind, when he stood before a Senate committee to appeal for funding for Alzheimer’s care and research. Rogen shared the story of his mother in law, whose rapidly progressing Alzheimer educated the actor on the more severe, unseen effects of the disease. Peppering his speech with his trademark self-deprecating humor, Rogen also shared some of the work of Hilarity for Charity – an organization he and his wife started to educate young people about the effects of Alzheimer's. Rogen proudly explained that many college students are now starting their own fundraising campaigns to help Alzheimer's sufferers and their families.

Rogen and wife Lauren Miller started Hilarity for Charity, influenced by their own experience with Alzheimer's.

In a video, shared by ABC, Rogen said that before experiencing it firsthand, he was in the dark about the disease, thinking "it was something only really, really old people got" and involved "forgetting your keys and mismatched shoes."

First off we were treated to a Phillip Seymour Hoffman-featuring parody of the new Spike Jonze movie Her, one that used cut-up snippets of the Oscar-winner's film repertoire in place of Scarlett Johansson's soothing utterances. Last night (25 Jan.) we saw Jonah Hill lampoon the film on Saturday Night Live, but earlier this week we're sure the best parody of them all was uploaded on to YouTube.

'Him' doesn't actually star any big names, but it does feature one heck of a good impression of the loveable Canadian comic Seth Rogen. The YouTube channel Paul Gale Comedy created and uploaded the parody, which pokes fun at the Oscar contender as well as gently ribbing Rogen, mocking his penchant for da 'erb and also mirroring his distinctive laugh spot on. It's probably the best portrayal of Seth Rogen since Seth Rogen played Seth Rogen in This Is The End.

Seth Rogen Weighs In On Justin Bieber Arrest: "He's A Piece Of Sh*t"


Seth Rogen Justin Bieber

Seth Rogen has given his opinion on the recent arrest of Justin Bieber for DUI and resisting arrest, and he didn't tread lightly when voicing what he really thinks of the singer. The comic actor and writer labelled the much-despised star a "piece of sh*t" on Twitter, shortly after the 'news' of the Canadian pop star's arrest was announced.

There are also rumours that Justin stole his quiff look from Rogen, which gives him more reason to be a hater

Rogen hit out at the Biebs following his arrest in Miami on Thursday, 23 January, morning and to put it lightly, the This Is The End star clearly isn't a Belieber. Seth tweeted: "All jokes aside, Justin Bieber is a piece of s**t."

Bad Neighbors - Teaser Trailer


Kelly and Mac Radner are a young married couple with a baby daughter who are starting to feel a little claustrophobic inside their family home and are desperate to get back into the party spirit. However, the phrase 'be careful what you wish for' couldn't be more apt when they watch a college fraternity move into the house next door. In a bid to get their new neighbours to keep the wild partying to a minimum, they attempt to welcome the seemingly friendly new arrivals. To no avail, however, as they end up having to call the police when one party gets out of control and find themselves subsequently being terrorised in all areas of their lives by the frat boys. Determined not to be victimised by a group of college kids, the Radner's respond with their own revenge tactics - but who will have the upper hand in the end?

Zac Efron Joins Seth Rogen In Another 'Bound 2' Parody: Can It Work Again?


Zac Efron Seth Rogen Kanye West Kim Kardashian James Franco

Zac Efron has joined in the fun of spoofing Kanye West's new music video, 'Bound 2,' by posting his own version of the cheesy scene on Instagram. The real 'Bound 2' was released last week showing Kanye and his topless fiancée Kim Kardashian riding a motorbike through mountains and sunsets. Naturally the video was an open invitation for parodies and we were quickly given Seth Rogen and James Franco's hilarious 'Bound 3.'

Quentin Tarantino's Top 10 Movies Of 2013 (So Far)


Quentin Tarantino Woody Allen Kathryn Hahn Juno Temple Richard Linklater Cate Blanchett James Wan Vera Farmiga Patrick Wilson Joe Swanberg Jake M. Johnson Olivia Wilde Alfonso Cuaron George Clooney Sandra Bullock Gore Verbinski Seth Rogen Johnny Depp

Movie buffs have begun to anticipate Quentin Tarantino's Top 10 movies lists in recent years. The legendary director's run-down of his favorite movies of the year has made for interesting reading in recent years and is often regarded as the antithesis of the Academy's choices of the year's best.

Juno Temple Kathryn HahnJuno Temple [L] and Kathryn Hahn [R] In 'Afternoon Delight'

He passed on devising a list last year, owing to Django Unchained, though in 2011 Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris - a wonderful movie that actually went onto win Best Original Screenplay at the Oscars - topped Quentin's list, edging out Rise of the Planet of the Apes and the excellent Moneyball, with Brad Pitt. Tarantino threw in a couple of curveballs with X-Men: First Class, The Skin I Live In, Attack The Block and Warrior.

Seth Rogen's 'Neighbors': The Funniest Scene Involving An Air-Bag-Ever?


Seth Rogen Zac Efron Lisa Kudrow

We've been waiting on this one for a while, and it looks as though Seth Rogen's latest movie Neighbors may be worth it. According to HitFix.com, Rogen, Evan Goldberg and Nicholas Stoller wanted to make a "stunningly dirty and wildly funny film" - and with Neighbors, they may well have succeeded.

Originally titled Townies, the move follows young couple Mac (Rogen) and Kelly (Rose Byrne) - a young couple who have just gone through two extremely stressful experiences, having a baby and moving home. 

Of course, when a fraternity run by a hard-partying teenager (Zac Efron) moves in next door - things get a little more difficult. At first, the couple - who appear to still consider themselves relatively hip - reach out to the frat guys, though it quickly becomes apparent that it's going to be all out war.

Watch Seth Rogen's (And Others) Auditions For 'The Office' [Video]


Steve Carell Seth Rogen Bob Odenkirk John Cho Eric Stonestreet Kathryn Hahn

Audition tapes are probably… the best thing ever, especially when well-known stars are going for roles. These Office auditions, in which the hopefuls are reading the script from the British version of the award-winning sitcom, are priceless.

Seth Rogen as Dwight? Bob Odenkirk as Michael, and, more importantly, not as Saul Goodman in Breaking Bad because of commitment to The Office, John Cho or Adam Scott as Jim? Eric Stonestreet as Kevin and Kathryn Hahn as Pam? No way – this is all very wrong. Apart from Stonestreet, the Modern Family actor does a brilliant stoney-faced Kevin, and is truly reminiscent of Keith – the cult hero from the original series.

As you’ll know, if you’re a fan of The Office, none of these actors got any parts. And as a fan of The Office, you’ll be pleased to know these autions are part of the bonus features on Season 9’s DVD boxset. Back in March, Rainn Wilson, who did get a part in The Office, and kept it, released a photo of the original audition list for the U.S. series, which included Mary Lynn Rajskub, Hamish Linklater and Anne Dudek.

This Is The End Review


Excellent

Comedies don't get much more self-referential than this film, in which a bunch of old friends get together and play themselves facing a biblical-style apocalypse. But they also don't get much funnier. Writing partners Rogen and Goldberg (Superbad, Pineapple Express) move into directing with this super-charged bromance that finds surprising resonance amid a constant barrage of vulgarity, in-jokes and end-of-the-world mayhem.

Rogen also stars as himself, happy that his childhood friend Jay is coming to visit him in Los Angeles. Jay prefers to live at home in Canada, far from the plastic L.A. scene, so Seth sets aside the first day with video games and lots of weed. Then they head to James' house for a starry Hollywood party, during which a series of massive earthquakes kills off most of the A-list guests. Seth, Jay and James survive, along with Jonah, Craig and Danny, and as they set up camp in James' mansion, their friendships are strained. Mainly because Danny eats their supply of food, Jay wants to go home, and Jonah is simply too nice to be believed. Until he's possessed by an angry demon.

The blinding array of cameos gives the film's early scenes a terrific kick, as big stars hilariously spoof their public personas before meeting a variety of fiery ends. An especially spiky Watson gets a few extra scenes of her own, while Cera has the most fun as a diva obsessed with sex and drugs. And Tatum gets the most jaw-dropping moment. But it's our six heroes who hold the film together, and their camaraderie adds a surprising warmth, most notably in the central bromance between Rogen and Baruchel.

Seth Rogen Reveals: 'This Is The End' Does Not Use Original Ending


Seth Rogen James Franco Emma Watson Michael Cera Channing Tatum Paul Rudd Rihanna Evan Goldberg Morgan Freeman Backstreet Boys

Seth Rogen's comedy This Is The End did not use its intended ending. The script was changed in order to accommodate a cameo from 90's pop stars Backstreet Boys leading a sing-along dance to 'Everybody', their 1997 single. 

Director and co-writer Evan Goldberg said the idea had come from an off-the-cuff suggestion from his wife on how to make the ending more interesting. Seth Rogen, who stars in the comedy, was determined to make the idea a reality. 

The Backstreet Boys cameo was not exactly what the writers had planned as the original ending was meant to feature Morgan Freeman, reviving his role as God as in Bruce Almighty. Unfortunately the actor had no interest in participating in the project. Rogen was then adamant the Backstreet Boys should play a part especially, as he said in an interview with The Vulture, he is "the appropriate age" to remember when "Backstreet Boys were kings".

The Backstreet Boys are not the only celebrities to feature in this 'apocalyptic' comedy. In fact the whole film is one cameo appearance after the other. None of the actors are playing characters, merely portraying the public's perception of them.

You Should See 'This Is The End' And Here's Why


Seth Rogen James Franco Jonah Hill Craig Robinson Danny McBride

We’ve all wanted to see This Is Then End ever since the very first trailer hit the airwaves, but now it looks like a ticket to the screening of the apocalyptic party movie might be more worth it than we thought. Oh, you thought you were getting a simple-minded comedy with celebrities acting like idiots? Well, it is that too, don’t worry, but surprisingly, This Is The End also takes its place as a skewering satire of celebrity culture – part of a definite trend lately.

While, yes, there are more famous faces in the film than at a Vanity Fair Oscars afterparty, what makes this film isn’t the mere presence of so many stars. Instead, the appeal is in the way the hyperbolized versions of famous actors interact with each other. Penned by Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen (who also doubles as a member of the apocalypse squad in the movie,) this film sees both writers on top of their game. At the beginning of their career, the creative team set the bar pretty high with the hilarious nerdy romp Superbad. Unfortunately, they then failed to repeat the act with films like Pineapple Express.

This Is The End Trailer


When actor James Franco threw a party for his fellow movie stars including the star-studded cast of 'Knocked Up' and several stars of Seth Rogen's comedies including Seth himself, Jay Baruchel, Jason Segel, Jonah Hill, Craig Robinson, Danny McBride, Michael Cera and Christopher Mintz-Plasse, no-one expected it to be anything more than your average drink fuelled Hollywood superparty. However, things take a turn for the worst when they experience a major earthquake; the ground opens up to the hottest depths of the Earth's core swallowing up Rihanna and Jason Segal as mysterious beasts start swarming around outside. What's a comedy cast to do with limited food and no real skills of the like they portray in the movies - especially when golden girl Emma Watson bursts in on them wielding an axe demanding all their resources. This is Hollywood versus the apocalypse, but who would really win?

The Guilt Trip Review


Very Good

Virtually impossible to market, this film isn't nearly as wacky and rude as its cast and crew suggest. Despite the presence of Rogen (Pineapple Express) and Streisand (Meet the Fockers), plus writer Fogelman (Crazy Stupid Love), director Fletcher (The Proposal) and producer Goldberg (Superbad), this is actually a warm, gentle comedy about the relationship between a mother and son. Sure, there are moments of inspired silliness, but you're more likely to feel a lump in your throat than a stitch in your side.

Rogen plays the science nerd Andrew, who has just invented an organic cleaning product and is taking a cross-country trip to find a buyer. In a moment of weakness, he invites his meddling mother Joyce (Streisand) to join him on the road from New Jersey to San Francisco. She doesn't know that he has discovered that her old flame now lives in California, and he hopes that sparking her love life might get her off his back. But their time together takes some unexpected turns, which change their relationship forever.

Even in the film's goofier segments, such as a ridiculous beef-eating contest Joyce enters in Texas, Fletcher and Fogelman keep the characters likeable and grounded. Streisand is especially impressive, delivering a layered performance that mixes broad one-liners with more internalised emotions. She's much more than just a pushy Jewish mother: Joyce is a middle-aged woman with needs of her own and real love for her son. Meanwhile, Rogen plays Andrew as a nice guy with social issues. So instead of rooting for Joyce and Andrew to sort out their relationship, or even for Andrew to sell his invention, we are more interested in whether Joyce will be able to reignite her personal life.

The Guilt Trip Starring Barbra Streisand Coming Out In Time For Christmas


Barbra Streisand Seth Rogen

Good news for fans of musicals, 20th century Hollywood, uninhibited glamour and, well, pure awesomeness – Barbra Streisand is starring in a new film!

And it comes out this week! And it also stars Seth Rogen! The Guilt Trip falls in the extremely popular as of recently road trip category and follows the exploits of hapless inventor Andy (Rogen), who goes on a, you guessed it, road trip. Standard fare so far, but the twist comes when Andy is guilted into bringing along his mother (Streisand). Unlike its fellow road trip type films, this one won’t be focusing on teenage drama or bachelor comedy, a la The Hangover. Instead, the movie will focus on Streisand’s character getting closer to her son.

It will be interesting to see an older, more balanced protagonist in this type of situation for sure, especially with Streisand in the part. The Guilt Trip also promises quite a few comedic moments, which would fit Streisand perfectly, as would Rogen of course. The 70-year-old actress kick started her Hollywood career with the 1965 comedy Funny Girl and has continued to shine in starring and supporting roles in various comedies over the years. Overall, despite the limited promotion, The Guilt Trip promises to be a great family experience over Christmas.

Is 'This Is 40' Really A Sequel To 'Knocked Up'?


Paul Rudd Judd Apatow Katherine Heigl Seth Rogen Leslie Mann

Judd Apatow returns with his new movie This Is 40 this week, a comedy about the trials of marriage, parenthood and being middle aged and is billed as a 'sort of sequel' to 2007's Knocked Up. The director - who once again teams up with Paul Rudd - discussed the origins of the film with the Los Angeles Times.

"I wasn't thinking about making a sequel," Apatow explained, "I just wanted to do a movie about this age and this time of life, so I started making notes about it. And I was thinking about different actors and actresses who could be in it. And then in the middle of the night I just thought, 'I think I'm writing the sequel to Knocked Up, and it should be Pete and Debbie, and Maude and Iris.' Suddenly it made sense." Knocked Up was a runaway hit, scoring both critical acclaim and commercial success. Though it focused mainly on the relationship between Seth Rogen and Katherine Heigl's characters, Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann were perhaps the most believable characters. "When I'm writing and when we rehearse, Paul and I will sit with Leslie and [Paul's] wife, Julie, and we'll have the 'What is annoying you about each other?" Apatow said of writing the new film, "and a lot of that makes its way into the movie. So I see it more as a bizarre Frankenstein monster of my worst traits and Paul's worst traits, and then Leslie has to deal with that."

'This Is 40' hits theaters in the U.S. on Friday (December 21, 2012).

The Guilt Trip Trailer


Andy Brewster is an inventor who is determined to sell his brand new product by embarking on an 8-day 3000 mile road trip. To kick off his journey, he flies out to visit his mother Joyce who happens to be the extremely embarrassing and over protective kind. After learning that she has remained single since he last saw her and acknowledging that she hasn't had any kind of romance since he was 8-years-old, Andy takes pity on her and, to her utmost delight, invites her to accompany him on his trip across the States. Not against his expectations, Joyce proves a lot to handle with her poor driving skills, extreme naivety and constant warnings particularly against hitchhikers. However, he has a better time than he expects as he and his mother get to know each other more deeply than they have ever done before convincing him that, as much as he'd like to think not, he still needs her around.

This is a wonderfully heartfelt comedy about how the love of a parent never becomes unwanted or unneeded. Directed by Anne Fletcher ('Step Up', '27 Dresses', 'The Proposal') and written by Dan Fogelman ('Cars', 'Bolt', 'Crazy, Stupid, Love.'), 'The Guilt Trip' will hit cinemas on February 22nd 2013.

Starring: Barbra Streisand, Seth Rogen, Adam Scott, Yvonne Strahovski, Colin Hanks, Brett Cullen, Casey Wilson, Danny Pudi, Dale Dickey, Miriam Margolyes, Nora Dunn, Amanda Walsh, Michael Cassidy & Robert Curtis Brown.

For A Good Time, Call... Review


Good

Colourful direction and sparky performances help make this friendship comedy watchable, although it never seems like a finished film. Instead, we feel like we're watching the first rehearsal for a much better movie. It manages to charm us along the way, but it's never as funny or sexy as it tries to be.

When his two best pals have housing problems, gay New York comic Jesse (Long) suggests they move in together. Lauren (Miller) is a business ace who has just lost her job and her boyfriend, while Katie (Graynor) is an aimless young woman working a series of jobs that don't pay enough for her to pay the bills on her late grandmother's gorgeous flat. The problem is that they hate each other due to a minor incident 10 years earlier and resent each other for being dull and oversexed, respectively. Then Lauren realises that Katie could actually make a lot more money if she opened her own phone-sex company. And when the two go into business together, an unlikely friendship is born.

Screenwriters Miller and Naylon based the story on their own life (Miller even plays herself), so there are constant details that add honesty and humour along the way. On the other hand, they have also forced the plot into the usual rom-com story structure, so we know exactly where it's going from the start. But what's even stranger is the way they pack scenes with riotously graphic sex talk without letting the characters actually have any riotous sex. The movie's only two bed scenes are bizarrely dull, and badly undermine both the randy atmosphere and any point the movie might be making about sexuality.

Seth Rogen's Wife Brought To Tears By Note From Ari Graynor


Seth Rogen Lauren Miller Ari Graynor Kevin Smith Ken Marino

Lauren Miller, the wife of film funny man Seth Rogen, was reportedly reduced to tears by the message from Ari Graynor, accepting a role in her movie. Miller co-wrote the upcoming film, 'For A Good Time, Call.', and decided to send out personal notes in order to ask stars to appear in cameos. Amongst these stars were director Kevin Smith and comedian Ken Marino. Yet the acceptance note she received from Graynor reportedly brought tears to her eyes.

Miller, who married Rogan in 2011, spoke to 'New York Magazine' to discuss the notes, saying: "I tried to be funny in those letters, but the letter I sent to Ari was more emotional, about how I've admired her work for years, and she has this incredible ability to be over-the-top funny yet retain this vulnerability and sexiness, even if she's pulling gum out of a toilet."

The Watch Review


Weak
You'd think that a film written by Stern (the surprisingly witty Mr Popper's Penguins) and Rogen/Goldberg (the hilarious Superbad and Pineapple Express) and starring a reliably funny cast would be a safe bet for a fun night out in the cinema. Well, unless your sense of humour is on par with a 12-year-old boy, guess again. With a sour tone and jokes that have no punchlines, this is a relentlessly unfunny comedy that shifts into an unexciting alien invasion thriller.

Stiller stars as Evan, an overachiever who can't bring himself to tell his loving wife (DeWitt) that he's sterile. When there's a murder in the super-store he manages, he forms a neighbourhood watch group with three losers: Bob (Vaughn) is struggling to cope with his teen daughter, Franklin (Hill) has an unhealthy obsession with guns, and Jemarcus (Ayoade) is a goofy sex addict.

All three would rather drink beer and play stupid games than keep their community safe. But then they discover that the killer was actually an alien who is leading an invasion of Earth.

Take This Waltz Review


Excellent
After the remarkable Away From Her, actress-turned-filmmaker Polley is back with another bracingly observant drama, this time exploring the point where relationships cease to be something new. The film is a bit indulgent and downbeat, but it speaks so eloquently that we can't help but be moved.

In Toronto, Margot (Williams) is happily married to Lou (Rogen), but she feels that their relationship is only expressed through humour and that work interests divide them. So it's not surprising that, after a chance encounter with neighbour Daniel (Kirby), Margot starts to consider straying from her marriage. She holds Daniel at arm's length, but is intrigued by everything that's new about him, including his more adult way of talking about sex and relationships. Is taking this leap scarier than waiting around for her marriage to come back to life?

50/50 Review


Excellent
Films about cancer aren't generally this funny. And while this movie isn't a comedy, beyond its generous dose of realistic humour, it has a smart, personal script that dares to face a difficult situation head on. And the light tone makes it hugely involving.

Young journalist Adam (Gordon-Levitt) is shocked to discover that his sore back is actually a rare tumour twithonly aa 50 percent survival rate. His girlfriend (Howard) promises to stick by him, best pal Kyle (Rogen) offers support, even as he uses Adam's illness to get girls, and Adam's mother (Huston) can't help but offer too much help. But he develops an awkward rapport with inexperienced therapist Katie (Kendrick) that actually does some good. And as his treatment sucks the life out of him, he finds two new friends in his fellow patients (Hall and Frewer).

Kung Fu Panda 2 Review


Very Good
Jack Black's cuddly alter-ego is back for another epic adventure in this lively, colourful sequel. It pretty much has the same plot as the final act of the 2008 original, and it's not quite as funny, but it's beautifully animated and thoroughly engaging.

Now that Dragon Warrior panda Po (voiced by Black) has joined the Furious Five (Jolie's tigress, Rogen's mantis, Chan's monkey, Liu's viper and Cross' crane), there's peace in the valley again. But in a distant kingdom, the villainous peacock Lord Shen (Oldman) has developed a secret weapon with which he plans to take over China and put an end to kung fu. Although he's been rattled for decades, since his soothsayer (Yeoh) told him he'll be conquered by a panda.

And he knows the Dragon Warrior is on his way.

Zack And Miri Make A Porno Review


Very Good
Zack and Miri Make a Porno is the latest film by Kevin Smith and, for better or for worse, it's the same movie the 38-year-old New Jersey native has been making for the last 14 years. That isn't to say there aren't changes. The setting is no longer his beloved hometown and the characters, though certainly of the same mindset, are not members of the director's View Askew universe. There is also the matter of Seth Rogen who constitutes, with the lone exception of Ben Affleck, the only bona fide movie star Smith has cast in a leading role to date. That being said, I'm sure Rogen would let out a chuckle at the thought of himself as any sort of star.

As with most of the filmmaker's oeuvre, all you need to know is in the title. Zack (Rogen) and Miri (Elizabeth Banks) are best friends, living together and working crap jobs in Pittsburgh. They barely make rent and often substitute frivolous pleasures like sex toys and hockey skates in lieu of water and heat. It's at a high school reunion that they reconnect with Miri's high-school crush Bobby Long (Brandon Routh of Superman Returns) and his lover (Justin Long), both gay porn stars earning triple-digit incomes in Los Angeles. At a bar afterwards, Zack realizes that a similar career path would solve Miri's and his financial troubles.

Kung Fu Panda Review


Very Good
It's surprising that Hollywood has taken until 2008 to come up with Kung Fu Panda. Taking your factory-issue period-piece martial arts plot -- wherein schlubby protagonist finds his inner warrior as a means of expressing filial piety and ensuring the harmonious survival of his village -- and combining it with supercharged computer animation, PG-friendly combat, and a flurry of cute animals just makes good business sense. One could argue about the logic of surrounding Jackie Chan (voicing a monkey who's also a kung fu master) with a Hollywood stew of A-list talent eager to scoop up some easy voice-actor money, but when the film's star is an overweight panda voiced by Jack Black, such kvetching is almost beside the point.

Blazing across the screen with eye-popping, sublime artwork, Kung Fu Panda sets itself apart from the modern domestic animation trend with its sheer beauty. From an opening dream sequence whose abstract style seems culled straight from a modern manga, the film enters instant classic status as some of the most gorgeous animation Hollywood has produced since the golden age of Disney. Eschewing the cold and severe art of Dreamworks' Shrek films, the makers of Kung Fu Panda fill the screen with painterly backdrops of mountain vistas and fluttering leaves that give Zhang Yimou a run for his money. It somehow makes it all the funnier to have the titular panda, Po (Black), come huffing and wheezing through the impeccable and non-specific ancient China landscapes like a less-active relative of Hurley on Lost.
