We’ve finally found the duo most excited for this weekend’s new Die Hard installment, A Good Day to Die Hard — it’s these two zesty, possibly drug-addled valets played by Key & Peele‘s Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele. Watch below as they reminisce at a lightning-fast pace about their favorite, somewhat shady memories from Die Hards 1 through 4. Remember when Voldemort, Urkel’s Dad, J.J.’s Dad, and Timothy Elephants, and that one guy from the computer commercial all starred alongside “Bruce Willies”? No? Better catch up! READ FULL STORY »
Tag: Bruce Willis (1-10 of 10)
We made it through the blizzard! That means it’s time to warm up and dry off with a week of musical performances and Bruce Willis blowing things up.
That and several other post-disater to-dos for this week’s planner. Don’t forget to tell us what we missed.
Remember the good old days when people could enjoy watching an action hero who shoots a lot of people without feeling like they were contributing to the ruin of society? Sylvester Stallone sure hopes so. The well-preserved Rocky and Rambo star, now 66, is back in theaters this week with Bullet To The Head, his first solo vehicle since The Expendables franchise (made in collaboration with his grumpy frat pack bash brothers) Viagra’d his brand of brawn. Stallone’s latest feature, directed by the venerable action maestro Walter Hill (The Warriors; 48 Hours), seems poured from the mold that he helped forge back in the day with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis. In fact, the one-time Planet Hollywood power trio is trying to muster a resurgence this year that resembles their shoot ‘em up heyday, albeit with more gray hairs (or no hair) and additional wrinkles (or conspicuously fewer). Bullet To The Head follows Schwarzenegger’s post-Governator comeback bid, The Last Stand, and ahead of A Good Day To Die Hard, Willis’ fifth stint as insurance nightmare John “I can’t believe this is happening to me AGAIN!” McLane. (The Joseph Gordon-Levitt lookalike also has the sequel to RED – about a secret society of retired CIA agents – later this year.)
How much would Pulp Fiction’s “cool” factor suffer if Samuel L. Jackson weren’t the one reciting Ezekiel 25:17? Apparently, we came dangerously close to finding out …
Vanity Fair‘s oral history of Quentin Tarantino’s hit film reveals a few things you might not know about the movie, from casting news to Bruce Willis’ influence. Here’s what we learned: READ FULL STORY »
Die Hard With a Vengeance follows the Return of the Jedi/Last Crusade rule of threequels in which the main threat of the first film (Death Star, Nazis, a Gruber) returns in a slightly altered form, but as you can see from the handy trilogy of infographics below, DHWaV‘s Gruber was a lot grabbier with the loot, taking an impressive $140 billion compared to Hans’ relatively paltry $640 million. In preparation for A Good Day to Die Hard, Fox has been releasing these easy-to-read collections of stats on the other films in the series, a gesture I appreciate since I’m generally terrible with numbers. (You may have seen my film, Math is Hard 2: Math is Harder.) The latest bit of fact-art is for John McTiernan’s riddle-me-this third entry. READ FULL STORY »
One of the most charming moments of last night’s SAG awards was Jennifer Lawrence’s Best Actress acceptance speech, where she thanked MTV for allowing her to get her SAG card by casting her in a My Super Sweet 16 promo years ago.
Lawrence is far from the first now-A-lister who had to pay the bills back in the day. We rounded up some of our favorite commercials from stars who probably wish that the ubiquity of YouTube didn’t make these long-in-the-past acting jobs quite so easy to find.
We only selected commercials from prior to the stars’ big break – so no Sofia Vergara ads for Pepsi or Brad Pitt hawking Chanel No. 5 – although there is another Pitt commercial which made the cut. Check out ‘80s-era Pitt, as well as nine more “before they were famous” ads below. READ FULL STORY »
Just about every year, brilliant movies are utterly ignored by the Oscars. The Searchers, Groundhog Day, Breathless, King Kong, Casino Royale, Touch of Evil, Caddyshack, Mean Streets, The Big Lebowski — the Academy has a long history of overlooking comedies, action movies, horror flicks, hard-boiled genre pics, artsy foreign films, and documentaries that aren’t about World War II. This year, we’ll be taking a closer look at films that were too small, too weird, or perhaps simply too awesome for the Academy Awards. These are the Non-Nominees.
The Film: Looper, writer-director Rian Johnson’s head-twisty sci-fi tale of Joe, a mob assassin (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) who kills marks sent back from the future — until one day his future self (played by Bruce Willis) zaps back from the past as Joe’s latest mark. Then things get really freaky. READ FULL STORY »
In the wake of all the RNC/Eastwood hullabaloo, we almost forgot to mention Bruce Willis’s appearance on The Late Show last night. Like many in, around, and nowhere near Hollywood, the famously bald action star has been a little down in the dumps lately — all because Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are no more. The poor guy is so sad, he can’t even say his catchphrase correctly! See how Bruce’s melancholy is affecting his new film, the latest entry in the Die Hard franchise:
You know what would have made The Expendables 2 better? More plastic! In the form of toys, that is. A video mashup of Toy Story and The Expendables 2 courtesy of the site IGN proves that classic action figures are just as badass as classic action heroes.
With Sylvester Stallone as (the voice of) Woody, Arnold Schwarzenegger as Buzz, Jason Statham as Hamm, and Bruce Willis as Mr. Potato Head, the The Expendables 2 trailer has been recast with Toy Story characters and scenes from the animated franchise. Let’s just say it’s beyond awesome.
Here’s the video:
