Full-time editor, part-time concertgoer, Alex Suskind's past life included stints in the sports industry. After moving to journalism, he began freelancing for AOL Music, Complex, Interview, and Relix, before finally settling down at Moviefone.
Viggo Mortensen is a movie star -- a title he does not seem to take all that seriously. Just because he was in one of the highest-grossing film series ever (the 'Lord of the Rings' trilogy) doesn't mean he has to do what other Hollywood actors do. He washes his own dishes. He talks about death and Russian poetry. He once wrote a script for a silent movie set 1,000 years in the past and sent to Leonardo DiCaprio (he turned it down). These are just a few of the tidbits readers can learn from the cover story in this week's T Magazine, aptly titled 'Viggo Talks and Talks.' So! What were some of the highlight quotes of this feature article? Let's examine.Continue Reading
Can you sit through a two-hour movie without looking at your cell phone? Of course not! You have to check your email or tweet about the movie you're seeing (side note: Please follow Moviefone on Twitter) or play Angry Birds. Thankfully, some cinemas have found a way for viewers to do this without getting kicked out. According to a USA Today article, "a growing number of theaters and performing groups across the country are setting aside 'tweet seats,' in-house seats for patrons to live-tweet during performances."
Everyone's favorite blackout crew is coming back -- probably. In an interview with Graham Norton, 'Hangover' star Bradley Cooper (sort of) confirmed that 'Hangover III' will begin filming next fall, and (possibly) be set in Los Angeles. "I personally want to do it. I hope we are going to start shooting in September. I know Todd Philips is working on the script" said the recently crowned Sexiest Man Alive. Speaking of which, there has been a bit of a backlash over Bradley being awarded the Sexiest title. Many felt Ryan Gosling was more deserving than Cooper, but Bradley doesn't mind -- he even admits that Gosling is sexier.Continue Reading
Newt Gingrich: former Speaker of the House, GOP presidential nominee, 'Lord of the Rings' fanatic. OK, that third fact is just speculation, but it's hard not to think it after watching Gingrich's new political ad, which, as Vanity Fair has pointed out, features background music that sounds awfully similar to the Howard Shore composition Peter Jackson used in 'The Return of the King,' when Samwise Gamgee comes back to the Shire. Maybe Newt and Bilbo Baggins are lifelong friends? Or, could he be in possession of the one ring that will rule us all? Again, all speculation. For your convenience, the ad, and a clip of the music, has been posted below.
It has been almost a month since Darren Aronofsky scarred us all with his anti-crystal meth ads. The screaming, the blood, the hospital gurneys -- they all fit in with the 'Black Swan' filmmaker's interest in exploring the human condition in the most visceral way possible. Luckily, the only frightening thing in the new Aronofsky-directed music video for Lou Reed and Metallica's 'The View,' is, well, the music. The song is from the recently released Reed/Metallica collaboration album, 'Lulu.' The critical response to the record hasn't exactly been glowing -- although, that didn't matter to Aronofsky, who was intrigued the first time he heard 'The View.'Continue Reading
On this day, 110 years ago, Walt Disney was born. To honor the entertainment icon's birthday, Moviefone wants to know which Disney film you consider a favorite. (A tough choice to say the least.) After creating the company's first feature-length film, 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,' in 1937, Disney went on to make hundreds of family classics -- 'Cinderella,' 'The Parent Trap,' 'Mary Poppins,' 'Beauty and the Beast,' 'The Lion King,' just to name a few.Continue Reading
The first time I crossed paths with French filmmaker Georges Méliès was at the age of eleven, while watching a music video by the Smashing Pumpkins. It was for the song 'Tonight Tonight,' where a couple travels to the Moon, gets attacked and kidnapped by a group of aliens, escapes via rocket ship and then crashes into the sea. At the end, a boat sails by with the words S.S. Méliès on the side.
