Talking To The Cast Of Last Vegas At The NYC Premiere

Last_Vegas_KidsWhat’s more thrilling than a trip to Las Vegas with a group of friends when you’re in your 20s? A trip to Vegas in your 60s with lifelong friends, of course. Then again, it could also be a trip to Vegas in your teens while working on a movie.

In CBS Films’ Last Vegas, Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Kline lead as Billy, Paddy, Sam and Archie, respectively. After years of indulging in the single life, Billy finally pops the question and insists that Paddy, Sam and Archie join him in Vegas for the ultimate bachelor party.

Red Carpet: Dredd 3D

Judgment is coming to New York City. Well, actually it already came, but don’t worry, it comes back in full force when “Dredd 3D” hits theaters on Friday, September 21st.

With roots in the popular comic strip, “Dredd 3D” takes place in the future, when America lies in ruins and most of the population is addicted to the drug Slo-Mo, a substance with the power to make you feel as though time is going by at 1% its normal speed. With a monopoly on Slo-Mo and some ruthless business policies, Ma-Ma (Lena Headey) maintains full control over her tower, Peach Trees. When Judge Dredd (Karl Urban) is called to investigate a murder in the block, both he and his rookie sidekick, Anderson (Olivia Thirlby), must fight their way up the tower to hand down judgment.

“Dredd 3D” certainly stormed its way into the Regal Union Square theater last night. Despite torrential downpours and gusty winds, Urban and Thirlby as well as producer Allon Reich and writer Alex Garland hit the red carpet to chat about the adaptation process, shooting it in 3D and, the most important of all, what Judge Dredd does in his free time.

Giancarlo Esposito Talks Breaking Bad And Once Upon A Time

All caught up on Breaking Bad? No? First off, how dare you? But, more importantly, watch out because this piece is packed with spoilers!

Earlier this evening Breaking Bad baddie, Giancarlo Esposito, showed off how unlike Gus Fring he really is, enjoying a nice night out with his daughter at the premiere of The Adventures of Tintin. Naturally, after Gus’ shocking demise, the obligatory question had to be asked – is that really the end of Gus? While Esposito artfully dodged the question, he does note that “no one dies on Breaking Bad” and that Gus will “definitely be back” perhaps “to put a final stamp on the series’ ending.”

Regardless of how big Gus’ return will be, it looks like Esposito will have another show keeping him quite busy, ABC’s Once Upon a Time. So far, we’ve seen Esposito’s Mirror pop up a few times, but the character most certainly has room to grow, especially with the Mirror’s intriguing newspaper reporter real life counterpart, and it seems as though the show will take advantage of that opportunity. Esposito explained that he’s actually shooting material for the show tomorrow and that we should all keep an eye out for episode 111, teasing his character might be getting closer to the Queen.

Hear it all yourself straight from Esposito in the video interview below and watch out for our full coverage of the red carpet for The Adventures of Tintin closer to the film’s December 21st release.

Steven Spielberg Revisits The T-Rex Roar

My inner fan girl takes over! Earlier this evening, Steven Spielberg took to the red carpet for his upcoming release, The Adventures of Tintin. Keep an eye out for the Tintin coverage closer to the film’s December 21st release, but for now, we’ve got something for all you Jurassic Park diehards out there.

As Jurassic Park is my favorite film of all time – yes, you can certainly quote me on that – it should come as no surprise that I legitimately wake up to the roar of Spielberg’s T-rex every morning. After schvitzing quite a bit as Spielberg made his way closer and closer to my spot on the pressline, the time came and I went with my gut – I whipped out my iPhone and showed Spielberg my alarm clock.

What better segue to ask about Jurassic Park 4? Sure, it’s been beaten to death at this point, but my T-rex wakeup call did lead to an enthusiastic, albeit new news-less, discussion. Check it out for yourself below.

Interview: Contagion Red Carpet

Contagion begins with Beth Emhoff (Gwyneth Paltrow), a woman on her way back from a business trip in Hong Kong. She isn’t feeling too well and opts to point a finger at the usual culprit, jet lag. However, just days later her symptoms intensify, she has a seizure and passes away. This is no common cold or even a freak contraction of the bird flu or contact with anthrax; it’s a new type of virus, one with the capacity to wipe out millions.

Apparently the subject matter of the film didn’t disturb the cast too much because a nice chunk of the gang shook some hands on the red carpet just the other night for Contagion‘s New York City premiere. Of the bunch Shockya had the pleasure of speaking with the promising young actress Anna Jacoby-Heron who plays Matt Damon’s daughter in the film as well as her on screen boyfriend, Brian J. O’Donnell.

Chin Han whose character assists Marion Cotillard’s in her effort to pinpoint the start of the pandemic stopped by to chat as did Elliott Gould who steps in as Ian Sussman, a doctor who joins the effort to find a cure. We also got some time with Dr. Ally Hextall of the CDC, played by Jennifer Ehle, as well as the film’s writer, Scott Z. Burns.

Check out what they had to say about their experience working on the film that’s not only guaranteed to give you the creeps, but compel you to wash your hands obsessively below.

On the Red Carpet with Jay Roach and His Schmucks

Let’s say you were invited to a dinner, but not just any dinner. This is a dinner for idiots and at the conclusion of the meal, you’d have to stand up in front of the entire party and give a presentation to prove the superiority of your idiocy. What would you do?

Stephanie Szostak would resort to her ability to magically raise the corner of her lip with an invisible string. Lucy Punch would take it up a notch and do a little something that would involve her whole body. “I might demonstrate how extremely flexible I am and do some weird contortionist body shapes,” she revealed. “Eating with my feet, through my arms, over my head.” Larry Wilmore would take his show in a completely different direction, “I am going to anti-schmuck it. That’s how I become the schmuckiest cleverest schmuck. They think I’m going to do something schmucky, but then I fool them and I don’t do anything.”

It’s a good thing none of them play a schmuck in Dinner for Schmucks because none of that could compare to a woman who has a conversation with a lobster, a blind swordsman, a ventriloquist with a flirty puppet or a guy who spends his time with a live vulture.

Red Carpet Coverage: Cop Out

Monday night I had the pleasure of covering the red carpet for Cop Out on behalf of MTV. Check out all of my video work included in these articles:

1. Cop Out Cast Say Working With Bruce Willis Is ‘Awesome’

As if anyone needs confirmation that working with Hollywood legend Bruce Willis is awesome, his Cop Out co-stars are spreading the word. And having the chance to work with him on the Kevin Smith-directed flick, which opens this weekend, was a dream come true.

2. Tracy Morgan ‘Would Love’ To Remake Jaws, Doesn’t Want To Jinx Knoxville Comedy

Producers of the upcoming vicious fishies flick, Piranha 3-D, are positioning their film to become Jaws for the 21st Century. If an unsourced rumor floated on the Internet earlier this month is to be believed, the studio behind 1975’s Jaws is determined to have their shark-infested-waters classic remade to become the Jaws for the 21st Century, possibly with Tracy Morgan in the lead role.

3. Cheer Up, Bruce Willis!

We are a little worried about Cop Out star Bruce Willis. In the last few days we’ve noticed that he seems to be a little down about something. MTV News has had the opportunity to meet up with Willis several times recently, as he’s been promoting his new Kevin Smith-directed buddy comedy, Cop Out. And with each interview it becomes clearer that Bruce seems to be going through some existential crisis.
