James Franco Says 'Spring Breakers' Sequel Never Got Approved By Harmony...

Published by

Harmony Korine's Spring Breakers was one of the rarest albeit also interesting films of 2013. Not necessarily for its spring break shenanigans–there are a lot of movies about wild teenage girls–but because of Korine's unique dreamy style and, of course, the participation of one James Franco. So when news came that producers Wild Bunch were making a sequel without Korine...

This week offers one of last year’s best movies that was sadly ignored by the academy and never got a particularly wide release. Also a film that shockingly got an Oscar nomination, a an arthouse flop, and some great catalog titles.

Homefront: Movie Review

Published by

The combination of Jason Statham, James Franco, Winona Ryder, Kate Bosworth and a script from Sylvester Stallone sounds like a recipe for something interesting, if not either brilliant or terrible. Alas, the end result -- the movie Homefront --  is surprisingly not good-bad or bad-bad, but boring.

After Mindy's wedding was abruptly cancelled in last week's The Mindy Project, she and Casey opt for a long-distance relationship. Mindy felt like her life in New York would just snap back together, but she underestimated how essential James Franco's Dr. L was to the practice. In "The Other Dr. L," she finds herself struggling to get what's rightfully hers.

Mindy Lahiri and her posse of wacky and improper co-workers have returned for a second season of The Mindy Project. This time they'll be joined by a surprising (not really) guest, James Franco. In the premiere, bluntly titled "All My Problems Solved Forever," Mindy goes through a lot. The episode's packed with a season's worth of material, which if...

'Homefront' Trailer: Jason Statham Fights James Franco (Really)

Published by

Homefront
Regardless if the movie is good or not, Homefront is a fascinating combination of things. You wouldn't normally expect Jason Statham to be squaring up against James Franco, nor would you expect that film to be written by but not featuring in any way Sylvester Stallone. Is that enough to bring in audiences? Who's to say, but the film definitely has our attention with...

'Lovelace' Trailer: Amanda Seyfried Gets Into Porn

Lovelace
Though there's now been a couple movies made about porn stars (most notably Boogie Nights and Wonderland), those have mostly focused on John Holmes. He was famous for two things, and one was being involved with murder. But the nice thing about Lovelace is that it focuses on a female star, one who was really put...

This is the End: Movie Review

1170481 - This Is The End
For Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's directorial debut This is the End, the duo got many of their friends together to goof on themselves and the industry that made them famous. But those there's a winking sense of parody to the film, it does give you characters to be interested in, even if it's James Franco (James Franco) or Danny McBride (Danny McBride). Though perhaps...

'As I Lay Dying' Trailer: Franco Does Faulkner

james franco as i lay dying
James Franco seems to have no qualms about attacking a project, no matter what the content—whether it’s making a high-concept meta-study of the gay footage excised from William Friedkin’s Cruising (Interior.Leather Bar), playing a spring rapper/gangster (Spring Breakers), or totally bombing at the Oscars.  So it makes sense...

If there was ever an apocalypse, who do you think would get rescued first? According to Jonah Hill, actors like George Clooney, Sandra Bullock and himself would (guess that Oscar-nomination got to his head). Sony has released a new clip for This Is The End, the movie where a whole bunch of Judd Apatow's favorite actors experience the end of the world.

Spring Breakers: Movie Review

Published by

spring-breakers6
Spring Breakers, despite all appearances, is mostly a fantasy film that remarks on the post pubescent generation and other serious topics like partying it up. But it's hard to cling onto anything noteworthy from this film. It's just there. It has a lot to say, and in some portions tells it brilliantly, but for the most part it doesn't work.

Sam Raimi steps outside his comfort zone for Oz: The Great and Powerful. The director alongside James Franco leads this colorful prequel to 1939's The Wizard of Oz. Based on L. Frank Baum's novels, the film is a funny, heartwarming and worthy entry into the Oz series.
