    Nifty Teaser Posters Debut For Steven Spielberg & Peter Jackson's 'The Adventures Of Tintin'

    First Trailer To Arrive Tomorrow MorningFor one of the most eagerly anticipated films of the year, at least everywhere except the U.S, word's been strangely quiet on "The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn." Uniting blockbuster giants Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson for the first time (the former's directing, the latter producing), on an adaptation of the massively successful graphic novel series about a Belgian boy detective, his dog Snowy, his best friend, a drunken sea captain, and the adventures they go on, we had a glimpse of a handful of images before Christmas, but little since then. We guess because the film's being re...

    Adam McKay Courting Russell Crowe & Simon Pegg For Comic-Book Adaptation 'The Boys'

    Script's Almost Done, But Director Admits That It's A Hard Film To Get MadeThe career of Adam McKay is at an interesting juncture now -- having delivered four successful comedies starring BFF Will Ferrell ("Anchorman," "Step Brothers," "The Other Guys" and "Talladega Nights": and yes, those are ranked in order of brilliance), the former "Saturday Night Live" writer is starting to look at stepping outside of his comfort zone, with a couple of projects percolating that look to take him into slightly less ludicrous waters and away from Ferrell. One is a biopic of legendary political consultant Lee Atwater, from "In The Loop" and "Four Lions" wri...

    SXSW: Simon Pegg & Nick Frost Reveal Bad Weather Was The Inspiration To Make 'Paul'

    Yes, it's Friday. SXSW Film is over, SXSW Music is in full boozy swing and "Paul" -- after running a helluva pace through the press gauntlet at the festival and in the preceding weeks -- is finally hitting theaters. And while it seems that the chatter and buzz around "Paul" has been non-stop, this is the rare case of the film that actually deserves it. Directed by Greg Mottola, the film is much more than it what appears to be combining the breeziness of a '70s road trip film, the magic of early Amblin entertainments and of course, the distinct humor of the film's leads Simon Pegg and Nick Frost who are joined by Seth Rogen who voices the titu...

    Simon Pegg Says 'Paul' Is 'Easy Rider' With Aliens Or 'The Daytrippers' With E.T.

    How The Film Doubles As Seth Rogen Biopic & More We Learned In Our Chat With The Cast & DirectorTwo nerds, after spending the time of their life at the geek haven that is Comic-Con, soon find themselves in the epic situation of having to get an alien to his homeship. And though it's a dream come true for the protagonists, it's also a certain death sentence with multiple villains on their tail. But thankfully in "Paul," nobody's yelling at any marines nor are there abrasive video game action scenes -- this is the "better" alien movie in theaters, chock full of laughs and coated with a genuine sweetness that you wouldn't expect from a movie cen...

    From The Playlist U.K.: The pubs of London are littered with the carcasses of British comedy stars who weren't able to convert their TV success to the big screen.
