Based on the most successful racing video game franchise ever with over 140 million copies sold, DreamWorks Pictures’ “Need for Speed” captures the thrills of the game in a real-world setting. An exciting return to the great car-culture films of the 1960s and ’70s, when authenticity brought a new level of intensity to the action, “Need for Speed” taps into what makes the American myth of the open road so enticing.

Chris Pratt Talks About Playing Peter Quill/Star-Lord & The Tone Of Marvel’s ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’
Chris Pratt recently spoke with The Huffington Post and shared some info about his upcoming 2014 blockbuster, Marvel’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy.’ Asked if he felt like he nailed his audition to play the leading character, Peter Quill/Star-Lord, the ‘Parks and Recreation’ star said, “For me it felt like a perfect fit right off the bat. I felt like at my very first audition that I nailed it, but, I was afraid that I wasn’t physically right for it because I was still pretty big from this movie. And so I just thought, If they could just believe in me, then I can lose this weight, then I’ll get this role. But I had a feeling it was a little too much weight to expect any person to lose — I was determined at that point. I was like, Well, you know what, if I’m not going to get this, that’s fine. But no one is ever going to tell me that I’m too fat for a role again. I’m going to start getting in shape. So I started getting in shape right away. We wrapped “Delivery Man” right around this time last year — oh my gosh, what a year — and I had gotten heavy, heavy, heavy and I went through the holidays and I continued to gain weight. Then, right at Jan 1st, I started working out. Then around the 15th, this audition came up. So I had lost probably 10 pounds … but I was still around 280 and that’s too big to be a Marvel character. But, it was in the audition. I mean, I knew he had my spirit — I knew that my spirit was right. And I knew it sounded right, I just didn’t look right yet.”
During a recent sit down with Access Hollywood for ‘Out of the Furnace,’ Christian Bale was asked what he thinks of Ben Affleck taking on the role of Batman/Bruce Wayne. “I wish him all the best. He’s a very experienced actor and filmmaker and he’ll make it his own. Our thing’s finished, we’ve always declared it was finished and it should be passed on to another actor and it will be again after him.”
The Oscar winner, who played Batman/Bruce Wayne across Christopher Nolan’s ‘Dark Knight’ trilogy, shared some advice he gave to Ben Affleck, ““The only thing I said to him is just make sure he can take a piss without anyone having to help him. Because it’s a little bit humiliating, at least what I went through, when you have to have someone help you out of the costume. That was my main piece of advice for him.” Check out his comments below. Look out for my ‘Out of the Furnace’ interview with Christian Bale shortly.

During a recent chat with Vulture for ‘The Walking Dead’ and ‘Sunight Jr.,’ Norman Reedus spoke on why he turned down a role in Brad Bird’s ‘Tomorrowland.’ “With Tomorrowland, there was an issue about cutting my hair. It’s a period film, and I would have played the father of George Clooney, but the haircut, the pictures they sent me, it looked like some sort of a hair croissant on the top of your head. And I was like, “How am I going to pull that off?” I have really long wild guy hair right now [because of ‘The Walking Dead’] and it just wouldn’t work. This show is my bread and butter, and it’s my heart. And I don’t want to just do a giant blockbuster that’s going to disappear. I want a film that means something, and then I’ll go back to my highly watched, super-popular television show. I’m not opposed to big-budget films, and there are certain directors that I absolutely love that do them — Guillermo [del Toro], David Fincher. But it’s a fine line…..”
Opening on May 22nd, 2015, the likes of George Clooney, Hugh Laurie, Raffey Cassidy, Thomas Robinson, Kathryn Hahn and Britt Robertson star in ‘Tomorrowland.’ Brad Bird is making the film his follow up to ‘Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol,’ his first live action pic after helming his trio of awesome animated flicks, ‘The Incredibles,’ ‘Ratatouille’ and ‘The Iron Giant.’ ‘Lost’ co-creator Damon Lindelof co-wrote the script for ‘Tomorrowland’ with Jeff Jensen, an editor at Entertainment Weekly.
