Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues has been filming for what feels like ages, so it's a good thing we already know we have some really exciting cameos to look forward to! Pretty much everyone from the 2004 original is returning, and while Kristen Wiig is confirmed to join the cast, several actors like Drake, Kanye West, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Harrison Ford have all been spotted filming scenes on the Georgia, New York, and California sets. Take a look at all the A-listers making appearances!
Anchorman: The Legend Continues is shaping up to be a star-studded affair! On set in Atlanta yesterday, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were armed with crowbars as they shot a fight scene with Sacha Baron Cohen while Liam Neeson and John C. Reilly posed with extras while holding swords and muskets. Meanwhile, Kirsten Dunst and Jim Carrey arrived on set to get ready for their cameos alongside the original Anchorman stars Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, and Steve Carell. This week's cast of characters aren't the only stars who will be appearing in the movie. Harrison Ford hit the set in March, when it was also confirmed that Nicole Kidman and Kristen Wiig will all be featured in guest roles for the comedy, which is slated to hit theaters later this year on Dec. 20.
The 2013 SXSW Music, Film + Interactive Festival has come to a close, and we're taking a look at all the stars who popped up in Austin, TX, to join in the fun. Zac Efron linked up with costar Dennis Quaid to premiere their At Any Price, while Justin Timberlake performed at a secret show. Selena Gomez showed skin in a crop top for her Spring Breakers premiere, and Usher took the stage at the Converse party. Click through to see all the star-studded action at SXSW!
Steve Carell and Jim Carrey are joining forces for the magical comedy The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, while Halle Berry is on the line to save Abigail Breslin in The Call this weekend. If you're not sure whether you'd be into the wacky comedy or the intense rescue film, flip through all the pictures to find out what's in store from each movie and let us know which you may be seeing this weekend!
The Incredible Burt Wonderstone follows the life of a man who aims to leave people in awe, and while the movie itself doesn't reach those kinds of heights, it is a comedy with a few laughs and a cast that wins you over. Steve Carell headlines as title character Burt Wonderstone, a Vegas Strip mainstay whose flashy shtick has grown tired. Steve Buscemi plays his stage partner Anton, and when their act is challenged by flagging ticket sales and newer, more modern competitors, the two childhood best friends have a falling out, leaving Burt to rediscover his touch. Burt's road to a comeback is entertaining and full of goofiness that's quite dumb but still amusing.
The silliness of the movie is balanced out by how irreverent its sense of humor is. This is best demonstrated by Jim Carrey's character Steve Gray, a Criss Angel-like street magician more interested in shocking the masses than dazzling them. The gags ring true, and the observations about the business of magic are sharp and give The Incredible Burt Wonderstone an edge — not just an excuse to put the actors in ridiculous costumes. The lampooning of the industry and the jokes both provide a good time, even if the movie isn't destined to be a comedy classic. Find out what else I thought after the jump.
Big Daddy (Nicolas Cage) may be down for the count, but Kick-Ass (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Hit-Girl (Chloë Moretz) are not on their own in the red band trailer for Kick-Ass 2. The trailer for the sequel to 2010's Kick-Ass reveals the superhero duo is hitting the streets again to fight crime in New York City. This time, they have to fight the original movie's Chris D'Amico (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), who's been reborn as baddie The Mother F%&*^r. Good thing they have fellow caped crusader Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey) and his loyal canine companion by their side.
I'm so excited for this movie — Hit-Girl is one of my favorite superhero characters of all time, and now that she's on her way into adolescence, I think her skills (and foul mouth) are only going to get more awesome. I also find that Carrey is at his best playing flamboyant characters like this, and I can't wait to see what he adds to the team. Kick-Ass 2 opens Aug. 16, and you can watch the trailer after the jump.
Olivia Wilde, Steve Carell, and Jim Carrey joined up to premiere The Incredible Burt Wonderstone in LA yesterday. Olivia wore a stunning black Gucci gown to pose for photos while her fiancé, Jason Sudeikis, bypassed the red carpet and headed straight into the event at the famed Chinese Theatre. Steve, meanwhile, posed with his wife, Nancy. Other celebrity attendees included magician David Copperfield, Melissa Joan Hart, and Steven Tyler.
The Hollywood debut comes just a few days after the cast flew out to Austin to screen the film at SXSW and less than 24 hours after Olivia Wilde's interview in Marie Claire came out. In the magazine feature, Olivia spoke about her relationship with Jason and her 2011 divorce from Italian aristocrat Tao Ruspoli. She said, "I'm so grateful for the pain and the heartbreak [from the divorce]. It gave me the courage to leave and brought me to the great love of my life."
Steve Carell, Olivia Wilde, and Jim Carrey gathered in Austin, TX, last night for the world premiere of their new comedy The Incredible Burt Wonderstone. The screening was the first to be held during the film section of the 2013 SXSW Music, Film + Interactive Festival in Texas. The red-carpet reunion for the trio came before they headed inside the city's Paramount Theatre for the screening and afterward a question-and-answer session. In the film, both Steve and Jim play magicians, and last night, Jim spoke about his interest in magic. He said, "I've always had this weird relationship with magic. I think it's fascinating and yet it annoys me because I can't figure it out." The movie is out on US theaters next Friday March 15 — make sure to check out the Incredible Burt Wonderstone trailer!
