"What, the sexy dance?"
In the first trailer for the upcoming ensemble comedy Freaky Deaky, it's clear that everybody wants something, it's just not exactly sure who wants what from whom. There's Detroit police officer Chris Mankowski (Billy Burke), former Black Panther Donnell Lewis (Michael Jai White) and vengeful couple Skip (Christian Slater) and Robin (Breanne Racano), who all want something from eccentric and rich Woody Ricks (Crispin Glover).
While the trailer is more interested in showing off the movie's humor than explaining the movie's plot mechanics, as long as writer-director Charles Matthau stayed close to the spirit of Elmore Leonard's 1988 novel, Freaky Deaky should be an entertaining ride. Hey, it worked for 1995's Get Shorty, 1998's Out of Sight, and the TV show Justified, all of which are based on Leonard's books. watch the trailer >> Posted 02.23.13 by Ryan
With Drive Angry opening tomorrow, Lionsgate has released a new preview clip for the 3-D supernatural action movie, which sees Nicolas Cage playing Milton, a man who returns from Hell to save his infant granddaughter from being sacrificed by the same cult that murdered his daughter. The preview clips released earlier this week saw Cage's Milton meet Piper (Amber Heard), who partners with Milton to help him, and a confrontation between Milton and "The Accountant" (William Fichter), an operative of Satan who is trying to bring Milton back to Hell. In the newest clip, Heard gets into a fistfight with the leader of the cult (Billy Burke), while Cage offers another driver a lesson on following too close. watch the "Fight Coming" clip >> Posted 02.24.11 by Ryan
Target has released the first deleted scene from The Twilight Saga: New Moon, taken from the movie's upcoming DVD.
The scene isn't the most exciting, and mainly focuses on Charlie Swan (Billy Burke) talking to a mysterious man, Bob, about a giant bear problem sweeping through the town of Forks. It ties in nicely to Charlie telling Bella (Kristen Stewart) she's going to Jacksonville, but aside from that, there are no groundbreaking revelations or extra shots of RPattz's eyebrows. We can see why it was left on the cutting room floor, though for most Twilighters, this unseen footage will be like Christmas come early.
New Moon is released on DVD and Blu-ray on March 20th. Now, remember to form an orderly queue, ladies — make Edward proud. Posted 02.28.10 by reelz
Kellan Lutz, the man behind "monkey man" Emmett Cullen, spoke to MTV about The Twilight Saga and how each director has brought something new to the franchise.
On the subject of differences within the saga, Lutz had this to say about directors Catherine Hardwicke, Chris Weitz, and David Slade:
Catherine Hardwicke was very energetic, and she made this beautiful movie. Chris Weitz had this really cool, really laid-back vibe, but has a great sense of how to do CGI and how to make these wolves look real and bigger than life versus just some computerized image. Then David Slade, with his action background and his indie style, just mixed the two. The movies are going to be unique in their own aspects, and that's what's really interesting — it's not the same director doing each one. We, as actors, got to see different styles of directing. So it doesn't feel old, ever.
When asked about his favorite New Moon scene, he replied with an answer sure to please the many fans of Charlie Swan and Billy Burke.
My favorite scene is probably anything that Charlie is in, played by Billy Burke. He just has this great comedic timing, and every scene with him, I get a laugh out of. And there's just tons of action. That's the thing too, seeing the wolves actually fight each other and roughhouse. It's really interesting to see what Chris did.
So, Twilighters, what's your take on the saga's directors? Who's your favorite? Do you think they'll do a good job bringing the characters to life? Let us know in the comments. Posted 10.27.09 by reelz
It's a good thing the ballroom at the Sheraton Dallas is rather large. Even so, space was tight for the more than 2,500 fans who lined up to see and hear Kellan Lutz, Peter Facinelli, Billy Burke, Christian Serratos, Jackson Rathbone, and newcomer to the franchise, Alex Meraz.
Deafening applause filled much of the 40-minute Q&A session, during which the cast took pre-written questions from the fans. A definite highlight was when Burke made paper planes with handwritten notes and threw them into the audience. But what really made fans go wild was Facinelli running down the ballroom aisle to hand deliver one of the planes to an incredibly lucky fan.
Things got a little saucy when Meraz received a request to "take off his shirt" from a fan who's clearly spent some time gazing at the wolf pack's publicity shot, which has several six-packs on display. When asked how he prepared for his role as Paul, Meraz answered "by working out and eating lots of steak."
Serratos talked about how she likes Vancouver, filming location of the just-shot The Twilight Saga: New Moon and the soon-to-start Eclipse. She also mentioned how much she enjoyed working with director Chris Weitz.
When asked what Jasper would name his band if he were a musician, Rathbone promptly responded, "The Ungrateful Dead or 100 Vampires."
Facinelli differentiated his doctor characters in Twilight and Nurse Jackie by saying Dr. Carlisle Cullen is as cool as ice and is the pillar of his family, while Dr. "Coop" is a catastrophe and in constant chaos. Posted 08.01.09 by reelz
