WATCH: Seth Rogen and James Franco Parody Kanye West’s Music Video!

 

Independent film actor and director James Franco and comedian Seth Rogen took time away from filming their current movie “The Interview” to make a shot-for-shot remake of Kanye West’s new music video “Bound 2,” which features Kim Kardashian.  They call it “Bound 3″ and well… it’s AMAZING!

The original video, directed by Nick Knight, featured West straddling his fiancé as the two travelled through a greenscreened Arizona scenery via motorcycle.  In this reviewer’s humble opinion, it is one of the worst songs and videos I’ve ever seen.

But whether or not you agree, it’s hard not to laugh hysterically at the genius behind Franco and Rogen’s parody.  As Franco lip-syncs to West, Rogen pops his shirt off like Kardashian and reveals his Canadian back fur.  Now that’s love.

Kanye being Kanye, it’s going to be interesting to find out how personally he’ll take this.  Can’t wait for his reaction!

Watch it all here! (Caution: NSFW)

 

And if you never saw the original Kanye West video, here it is for comparison:

 

WATCH: [HD] Trailer For Hard-Hitting Mob Thriller ‘THE ICEMAN’ Based On a True Story!

We’ve got an amazing trailer for you indie film lovers!  But don’t start thinking that means boring or too artsy… This here is a hard-hitting mob hit-man flick directed by Ariel Vromen featuring an all-star cast!  ’The Iceman’ stars Michael Shannon, Winona Ryder, James Franco, Ray Liotta, Chris Evans, David Schwimmer, Robert Davi, and Danny Abeckaser.

Inspired by actual events, the movie follows notorious contract killer Richard Kuklinski (Academy Award nominee Michael Shannon) from his early days in the mob until his arrest for the murder of more than 100 men.

For years the notorious hitman Richard Kuklinski split his time between being a family man and a ruthless contract killer.  He managed to keep it a secret from his wife and children until they finally learned the truth upon his 1986 arrest.

Barbara and Richard Kuklinski. Aww…

Throughout their marriage, Richard Kuklinski seemed to be your typical suburban family man in in Dumont, New Jersey.  He was involved in the local Church every Sunday, BBQs by the pool, trips to Disneyworld , etc.  Truth is, he was a cold-blooded murderer – no pun intended.  Some in anger, some for profit, others just for fun… For 20 years, Kuklinski had made a living as one of the most prolific contract killers in the history of organized crime.

Oh and apparently he froze his victims’ bodies to dupe forensic experts, hence the nickname “Ice Man”.

This doesn’t look like Captain America?

‘The Iceman’ premiered at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival.  It also screened at the Telluride Film Festival in 2012, was released at the 2012 Venice Film Festival, and many more!

‘Oz The Great and Poweful’ Hits Theaters Friday After 70 Years

After more than 70 years since the original film’s release, ‘Oz The Great and Powerful’ will finally hit theaters this coming Friday. The rendition of the first color film cost Disney millions of dollars and tons of production time.

The 3-D version of film was directed by Sam Raimi and stars Mila Kunis, James Franco, Michelle Williams, and Rachel Weisz. The movie tells the story of the origin of the Wizard played by James Franco.

Disney spent $200 million on “Oz the Great and Powerful,” plus an additional $100 million for marketing. Walt Disney Pictures hopes that the recreation of the 1939 film is a huge success, due in part to the popularity of the original.

Head to theaters this weekend to catch a glimpse of the “Great and Powerful Oz.”

 

Red Band Trailer for ‘Spring Breakers’ with Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens as Bikini Girls Gone Rogue!

Hide your teenagers because we have the red band trailer for Harmony Korine’s (‘Kids’) new film ‘Spring Breakers’ starring James Franco, Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson, Rachel Korine, Heather Morris, and Vanessa Hudgens.

The story follows four wild college girls who land in jail after robbing a restaurant in order to fund their spring break vacation.  They then find themselves being bailed out by a cornrow-wearing drug and arms dealer (James Franco) who wants them to do some dirty deeds for him in return.  Plenty of drugs, sex, and violence ensue as we follow the shenanigans of these bikini-clad girls.

From the same controversial writer as the movie ‘Kids’, you can be certain it will raise eyebrows and probably some outrage.  I went through the spring break phase, spending plenty of uninhibited and never to be repeated weeks in between the Copper Canyons of Arizona.  I’m not exactly proud of it, and in hindsight, I’m terrified of the thought of what parents don’t know about their sons and daughters…. mainly the daughters.  Ruh-roh, I sound like an old man!

Here’s the red band trailer…

The Wonderful Land of Oz Returns

The first trailer for “Oz the Great and Powerful” has finally arrived and there aren’t any ruby slippers this time around. The first of the footage debuted at Comic Con this Thursday where the crowd demonstrated their approval.

Fans of the Tin Man, Cowardly Lion, and Scarecrow will be disappointed to find out that their favorite characters will not be in this film. There was controversy over the ruby red slippers making an appearance, as they are unique imagery from the original MGM film.

An array of new characters are introduced with a little help from James Franco, Mila Kunis, and Michelle Williams. As you can see in the trailer below, the producers of “Alice in Wonderland” definitely put this one together.

The yellow brick road returns March 8, 2013.

New Poster of Amanda Seyfried in Porn Star Biopic ‘LOVELACE’

Take a look at the brand new poster for the upcoming porn star biopic, ‘Lovelace’. The film will star Amanda Seyfried as Linda Lovelace (Linda Susan Boreman), the American pornographic actress who became forever famous for her performance in the hardcore porn film ‘Deep Throat’ (1972).

There’s also another Linda Lovelace film in the works called ‘Inferno’, starring Malin Akerman of ‘Watchmen’ and porn star Sasha Grey of ‘Smash Cut‘ and HBO’s ‘Entourage’.
