Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart team up in the new comedy "Get Hard". Both are great comedic talents, so one would expect a film featuring them would be a laugh riot. Unfortunately, "Get Hard" is far from it.In the movie, Ferrell play James King, a wealthy hedge fund manager who lives a life of luxury with his fiancee, played by "Community" star Alison Brie. King is a well meaning guy, but kind of clueless and walled off from reality in his giant mansion.

Nick Antosca to script the next Jason VoorheesThere's been an eerie silence at Crystal Lake since the 2009 Platinum Dunes Friday The 13th, which was followed only by legal tangles and creative problems.

Less a movie than a set-up for a haggard series of intended comedy blackouts, the new film Get Hard relies far too heavily on the well-established screen personas of Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart to be successful on its own meager merits. Ferrell, working without the net of an established property for the first time since 2012's The Internship, retreats into the safe haven of a dim, dense, lovable mug, a wealthy financial expert named James King who is pleasantly oblivious to everyone other than himself.

That's so DravenLast month, Jack Huston was revealed to be in talks to play The Crow's Eric Draven, but nothing official was announced. Now, however, the ink has dried on the contracts, the hands have been shaken and Huston can start digging into how he’ll play the tragic hero of The Crow for director Corin Hardy. Hardy was hired as the latest man to call the shots back in December, and it appears that the film is finally back on track after a tortuous spell in development limbo, with a shoot pencilled in for this spring.

Lionsgate If you read “Insurgent” in printed form before seeing The Divergent Series: Insurgent this weekend, you’ll find there’s a moment of hey wait, what? in the very last scene. Between the novel and the movie, the endings don’t match up. This is, of course, nothing new. There isn’t a piece of film-based media that’s a perfect 1:1 representation of the book it was adapted from (unless you count Reading Rainbow).

Matt Damon stands against what will pass for a desolate Mars landscape in the first photo from the set of Ridley Scott‘s adaptation of “The Martian.” The novel’s author, Andy Weir, posted the photo to his Facebook on Friday to illustrate that Damon’s assistant, a Seattle Seahawks fan, now has to wear New England Patriots paraphernalia for a year after his team lost the Super Bowl. But more interesting than the lost bet is the first glimpse of the set of the film based on Weir’s bestselling book, about an astronaut who’s presumed dead and left behind on
