You’d be forgiven for having forgotten Future World, Lionsgate’s upcoming post-apocalyptic thriller written, starring, and co-directed by James Franco that was first announced almost two years ago to little fanfare.
James Franco has been a part of so many projects, it may seem like he’s got a clone. And now, that could actually happen—in a movie at least.
Well, this is a nice surprise. Wednesday night, a four-plus minute prologue to Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant came online.
The first photo of the full Alien Covenant crew was revealed Tuesday, with the news that a teaser will be seen during Wednesday’s episode of Legion. Which is great, but we wanted to break down this photo a bit more.
It’s classic horror set-up: person who suffers trauma goes to a place that’s supposed to make them better. But once they get there, they find themselves face-to-face with the horrifying discover of... James Franco’s goofy-ass mustache.
An ex-con and his adopted brother are on the run from the authorities, an evil criminal, and enhanced soldiers. Outnumbered, the only way they’ll survive is by finding a mysterious, ancient weapon in Kin, an upcoming scifi film by Josh and Jonathan Baker.
After six Resident Evil films, Milla Jovovich is no stranger to post-apocalyptic science fiction movies. Usually though, she’s the good guy. In Future World, a new movie co-directed and starring James Franco, she’s going to be the villain.
Ok, the movie will actually be based off the Rolling Stone article that brought said Twitter saga to the world’s attention, but still—this is absolutely going to be the first film inspired by 148 tweets about a road trip involving Hooters, the “queen of hoeism,” a pimp, an exotic dancer, and a plunge from a…
Entertainment Weekly snagged this clip from Hulu’s Stephen King adaptation 11.22.63—which stars James Franco as a teacher who time-travels to prevent a certain history-changing presidential assassination from happening. This scene is clearly from early in the series, and it features a flashback to one character’s…
Hulu just dropped the first trailer for their adaptation of Stephen King’s novel 11.22.63, and it looks like it’ll be quite a bit of fun.
The Little Prince is one of those stories where, even if you don’t know it, you’ve heard of it. Originally written by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, it’s been adapted into all kinds of different versions. Next year, it’s getting a star-studded Hollywood animated treatment.
Hulu scooped up Stephen King’s time travel novel 11/22/63 a while back, with James Franco set to star as the lead. Now, the streaming video company has released the first images, synopsis and release date for the show.
Time travel: it's not just for films and TV anymore. Hulu's adapting Stephen King's 2011 story 11/23/63. And it's just cast its star, who is also going to produce: James Franco.
After weeks of prevaricating, terrorist threats, conspiracy theories and presidential interventions, Sony finally released The Interview on YouTube yesterday. Although we opted not to review because whether the movie was good or bad (it's bad) is almost entirely besides the point, it seems like everyone else on the…
Remember Freaks and Geeks, the short-lived teen comedy produced by Judd Apatow before you knew who Judd Apatow was? The show starred Seth Rogen and James Franco some 15 years before the pair would help spark the international cyber-clusterfuck we know as the Sony Hacks. Forget about the hackers and just watch the show.
Come for Batman, the Joker, Catwoman, and Robin lip-synching to "Day-O (The Banana Boat Song)," stay for the inevitable Michael Keaton joke.
Last night, Saturday Night Live kicked off its 40th season (did you watch it!). It's a major milestone to be sure, but how exactly is it made? Countless books have been written on the subject but established actor and fledgling documentarian James Franco tries to capture the tortuous late nights and constant…
Don't believe me? Watch this video and you'll be completely convinced that Sam Raimi remade his 1992 classic too (spoilers for Oz, by the way — and Army of Darkness too, I guess, if you were still waiting to see it or something). I tell you, Oz would have been a lot better if James Franco had a chainsaw hand.
The more we see of Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen's post apocalyptic comedy This Is the End, the more excited we get. Any movie that makes fun of James Franco is aces in our book.
This is the End is a comedy in which Seth Rogen, James Franco and a host of celebrities play themselves, facing the end of the world. Does that sound like a weird concept for a film to you? It certainly sounded weird to studio execs, who fought hard against letting a host of famous people lampoon themselves — and die…
