At Any Price Blu-ray Review

Sunday, October 27th, 2013

AT ANY PRICE is practically the best film title this piece of work can have. It describes the motives of the people involved in the most simplest and basic of terms. It brings clarity and you know what to expect. AT ANY PRICE explores all emotions on the human scale and does so in a […]

Zac Efron, Miles Teller and Michael B. Jordan star in That Awkward Moment Trailer

Tuesday, October 15th, 2013

The first trailer for THAT AWKWARD MOMENT has kind of painted the film into a bad corner.  It’s too raunchy to appeal to the romantic-comedy crowd, but it’s not quite raunchy enough to appeal to the raunchy-comedy fans.  So it’s stuck somewhere in the middle, meaning it probably won’t appeal to anyone but die hard […]

Zac Efron and Seth Rogen star in the first Neighbors trailer, plus new pics

Tuesday, September 3rd, 2013

It seems virtually every actor or actress that has appeared in a comedy has some ties to Judd Apatow.  Zac Efron, of course, starred in 17 AGAIN with Apatow’s wife, Leslie Mann and now he’s starring opposite Seth Rogen in the new comedy, NEIGHBORS (formerly TOWNIES). The first red band trailer has hit the web, […]

Zac Efron, Billy Bob Thornton and Paul Giamatti star in the first Parkland trailer

Wednesday, August 21st, 2013

The first trailer for the JFK assassination pic, PARKLAND is here and so far, the film is more famous for being produced by Tom Hanks than anything else.  But the first trailer looks pretty good and seems to capture some of the untold stories surrounding JFK’s death.  Whether or not the film can provide an […]

Zac Efron and Paul Giamatti star in new stills and a poster for Parkland

Tuesday, August 13th, 2013

Although it’s one of the most fascinating and mysterious events in American history, the assassination of JFK hasn’t translated well to movies.  When an Oliver Stone film is the best example of a JFK film you can come up with, you know there’s a problem.  Thankfully, Tom Hanks is here to make it right and […]

Ryan Gosling, Zac Efron and Leonardo DiCaprio supposedly met with J.J. Abrams about Star Wars: Episode VII

Thursday, July 25th, 2013

I’m not even sure where to begin with this latest Star Wars rumor.  With a summer 2015 release date staring at Disney like the barrel of a shotgun, they have to be feeling a little pressure.  The issue, of course, is that online outlets have numerous “inside” resources and all it takes is a whisper […]

Zac Efron adds Narc to his list of upcoming projects

Tuesday, May 21st, 2013

For a guy that really hasn’t established himself as a true box office draw, Zac Efron sure does have a lot of projects lined up.  Among them, the thriller AUTOBAHN with Amber Heard, the supernatural thriller THE FALLING, the JFK assassination project PARKLAND, the romantic comedy ARE WE OFFICIALLY DATING, the comedy TOWNIES and the […]

Zac Efron and Amber Heard are set for Autobahn

Thursday, May 16th, 2013

I know he’s adored by HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL fans everywhere, so at the risk of sounding like a pre-teen girl, I still don’t feel Zac Efron is as big of a star as he should be. The guy has a lot of charm and charisma and I’ve been impressed with just about everything he’s been […]

Zac Efron will star in a new thriller “The Falling”

Wednesday, January 30th, 2013

I just realized I have never seen a Zac Efron movie.  You would think as a film critic who sees hundreds of films a year, I would have accidentally seen one of these.  I have nothing against the guy, I just happened to have missed HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL 1,2 and 3, HAIRSPRAY, 17 AGAIN, CHARLIE […]

Zac Efron and Dennis Quaid don’t see eye-to-eye in the new At Any Price trailer

Friday, January 18th, 2013

Finally a new trailer has been released for the upcoming drama AT ANY PRICE and though I initially thought the film would be pretty bland this trailer has me interested. Starring Dennis Quaid and Zac Efron as father and son, the film follows the two’s relationship as the father is trying to save his farm […]

Zac Efron will star in the Tom Hanks produced film Parkland

Thursday, December 20th, 2012

You may remember way back in August when we reported that Tom Hanks was producing a film about the JFK assassination called PARKLAND. Well, news is heating up as today it’s been reported that Zac Efron (THE PAPERBOY, HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL) has signed on to join the film and will portray Dr. Charles ‘Jim’ Carrico. […]

Zac Efron and Dennis Quaid in more photos from At Any Price

Wednesday, September 12th, 2012

A new batch of photos from the upcoming family drama AT ANY PRICE have been released and if you just can’t get enough of Zac Efron, Dennis Quaid or Kim Dickens then I think you’ll be happy with these images. AT ANY PRICE was shown this year at three festivals (Venice, Telluride and the Toronto […]

Zac Efron is set to ask Are We Officially Dating

Saturday, September 1st, 2012

It seemed like Zac Efron had disappeared for a while in 2010 and 2011, only to come back strong with a string of heavy-hearted films, most recently starring in the Nicolas Sparks adaptation THE LUCKY ONE.  Then he’ll get peed on (which should be concerning when that’s the only thing people remember from the film) […]

Elizabeth Olsen and Josh Radnor star in the Liberal Arts trailer

Tuesday, August 7th, 2012

In 2010 Josh Radnor made his directorial debut with HAPPYTHANKYOUMOREPLEASE which was a quirky indie comedy that won him the Sundance Audience Award that year. Now he’s back with his second film, LIBERAL ARTS, and has managed to snag one of the up-and-coming actresses in Elizabeth Olsen. Elizabeth Olsen has really hit the ground running […]

Zac Efron and Nicole Kidman give their best southern accents in the new The Paperboy trailer

Wednesday, August 1st, 2012

A new trailer for director Lee Daniels’ film THE PAPERBOY has just been released and it looks alright. It will probably require a couple of viewings in order to get past the southern accents all the actors are speaking in but there’s nothing wrong with that. In fact, Zac Efron, Nicole Kidman, John Cusack and […]

Zac Efron and Dennis Quaid in new photos from At Any Price

Tuesday, July 24th, 2012

Zac Efron has been taking measures to juice up his resume the last couple of years by taking dramatic roles and breaking out of his HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL persona. This year he has taken roles in LIBERAL ARTS, THE LUCKY ONE, THE PAPERBOY and the upcoming Ramin Bahrani directed film AT ANY PRICE. AT ANY […]

Zac Efron, Nicole Kidman and Matthew McConaughey in new photos from The Paperboy

Monday, April 23rd, 2012

One of the more starred studded films being screened at the Cannes Film Festival may be the Lee Daniels’ film THE PAPERBOY. The film stars: Zac Efron, Nicole Kidman, Matthew McConaughey, John Cusack and David Oyelowo. Below we have some very interesting images that give us a look at a more slutty side of Nicole […]

Shia LaBeouf replacing Zac Efron, who replaced Shia LaBeouf in The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman

Wednesday, February 1st, 2012

About two years ago, Shia LaBeouf was set to star in the drama THE NECESSARY DEATH OF CHARLIE COUNTRYMAN.  But as with many attachments, Shia became unattached and the film picked up another lead in the form of Zac Efron.  Well, another year later and the project is right back in the hands of Shia […]

First poster arrives for The Paperboy, starring Zac Efron, Matthew McConaughey and Nicole Kidman

Wednesday, December 28th, 2011

Up until this poster, the biggest thing about Lee Daniels’s PAPERBOY was how many people have been attached to it at one point or another.  But many fans are excited to see what he does with his follow up to PRECIOUS: BASED ON THE NOVEL BY SAPPHIRE.  The film is about a Miami reporter that […]

Elizabeth Olsen and Josh Radnor in the first images from Liberal Arts

Tuesday, December 6th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant On his TV show ‘How I Met Your Mother’, Josh Radnor plays a thirty-something male that’s struggling with the increasing responsibilities adulthood brings on him.  In his directorial debut HAPPYTHANKYOUMOREPLEASE, he played a thirty-something male that was struggling with the increasing responsibilities adulthood was bringing.  In his follow-up, LIBERAL ARTS, he […]

Zac Efron, Taylor Schilling and Nicholas Sparks talk about The Lucky One in a new featurette

Tuesday, November 29th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant Zac Efron has been relatively quiet lately, but he has several projects in the works and a couple of films about to be released, one of which is the upcoming NEW YEAR’S EVE.  Another one is the adaptation of the Nicholas Sparks novel THE LUCKY ONE.  The film is about a […]

The new poster for New Year’s Eve embraces the romance

Wednesday, October 26th, 2011

Posted by: Zack Bruce There’s no amount of marketing that can get me to go see NEW YEAR’S EVE. It has nothing to do with the fact that it’s a romantic comedy. It has to do with the fact that it looks pointless and bland. While I’ve mentioned before that a trailer usually does no […]

Ashton Kutcher, Zac Efron, Katherine Heigl, and the rest of the star studded cast are on the poster for New Year’s Eve

Friday, October 14th, 2011

Posted by: Zack Bruce I have zero interest in seeing NEW YEAR’S EVE. Just because you add a ton of relevant (or semi-relevant) stars to a movie doesn’t mean that it will automatically be good. NEW YEAR’S EVE is basically a bunch of stories revolving around the celebration before the New Year. The stories will […]

Lea Michele, Zac Efron and Ashton Kutcher in another New Year’s Eve trailer

Wednesday, September 28th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant Is anyone else just feeling sorry for Garry Marshall these days?  If you’re not, then watch the trailer below for NEW YEAR’S EVE.  Marshall, who directed quality films like OVERBOARD, BEACHES and PRETTY WOMAN, is basically rehashing his latest film VALENTINE’S DAY, but this time he’s calling it NEW YEAR’S EVE […]

Lea Michele and Jon Bon Jovi belt out a tune in new photo from New Year’s Eve

Wednesday, August 10th, 2011

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant A new photo has been released for Garry Marshall’s upcoming romantic comedy NEW YEAR’S EVE, and it looks like it could be from his film or from Lea Michele’s hit television show GLEE. Basically, it’s just Michele and Jon Bon Jovi singing together which isn’t much, but it’s all I have […]

Lea Michele, Zac Efron and Katherine Heigl in the New Year’s Eve trailer

Wednesday, July 27th, 2011

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant The trailer for the upcoming Garry Marshall directed actor extravaganza, aka NEW YEAR’S EVE, has been released and since I’m a sucker for these types of romantic and serendipitous films, I’m excited. I really enjoyed VALENTINE’S DAY and although I know this isn’t going to be an Academy Award winning piece […]

Zac Efron and Seth Rogen to team for an R-rated comedy

Saturday, July 23rd, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant At first, it may seem surprising to see a pairing of Seth Rogen and Zac Efron in an R-rated comedy, but really it makes sense.  Efron has been trying to shed his High School Musical image for quite some time and Rogen is at the stage where he can be the […]

Zac Efron and Dennis Quaid join Ramin Bahrani’s newest film

Sunday, May 15th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant Two Zac Efron stories in two days.  If this was 2007 and you were a pre-teen girl, this would be a big weekend for you.  But alas, even though Mr. Efron has done a good job of lining up the projects, he’d be better served finishing them so audiences don’t forget […]

Zac Efron, Matthew McConaughey, Tobey Maguire and Sofia Vergara join The Paperboy

Saturday, May 14th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant Lee Daniels received much warranted praise after his debut film PRECIOUS, but has found getting a follow-up off the ground to be rather challenging.  It seems the director has been attached to several films since the release of PRECIOUS, but hasn’t managed to get any of them made.  But Cannes is […]

Ludacris joins Jessica Biel and Zac Efron in New Year’s Eve

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant This is the cast that never ends…Ludacris is the latest actor to join the ever-expanding ensemble cast of Garry Marshall’s upcoming romantic comedy NEW YEAR’S EVE. Quite frankly I’m wondering if Marshall is trying to set some kind of world record by having a film with the most big-named actors in […]

Taylor Swift, Zac Efron and Betty White will lend voices to The Lorax

Thursday, March 17th, 2011

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant Illumination Entertainment will be doing a 3D animation film based on the Dr. Seuss book THE LORAX. The book is basically about the environment vs. industrialized society, but told in such a way for kids (I actually haven’t read this particular book so feel free to expand on it below). Zac […]

Seth Green and Zac Efron lend voices to Robot Chicken: Star Wars III, coming to Blu-ray soon

Thursday, March 17th, 2011

Zac Efron’s Charlie Countryman gets a director

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant The formerly titled THE NECESSARY DEATH OF CHARLIE COUNTRYMAN (now shortened to CHARLIE COUNTRYMAN) starring Zac Efron, has secured a director in Frederik Bond who is making his feature length film directorial debut. The former commercial director has been waiting for this opportunity as several of his other projects (YEAR 12 […]

Vanessa Hudgens, Zac Efron and Jeff Bridges pose as Disney characters for campaign

Tuesday, March 8th, 2011

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant Disney is launching a “Let the Memories Begin” campaign to promote their multiple theme parks and they have gotten famous photographer Annie Liebovitz to photograph some pretty familiar faces posing as some of our favorite Disney characters. Not all of them are shown below, but they are some of the better […]

Zac Efron replaces Shia LaBeouf in The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman

Friday, February 11th, 2011

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant A long time ago (April 2010 to be exact) we reported that Shia LaBeouf was set to star in the comedy/action film THE NECESSARY DEATH OF CHARLIE COUNTRYMAN, and then we didn’t hear about the film again. Today we learn that Zac Efron has taken over the lead in a film […]

Josh Duhamel will join Lea Michele and Sienna Miller in New Year’s Eve

Thursday, January 27th, 2011

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant Josh Duhamel (TRANSFORMERS and WHEN IN ROME) is the latest actor to join the apparently ever expanding cast of Garry Marshall’s next film NEW YEAR’S EVE. Marshall already has an awesome cast set with: Sienna Miller, Zac Efron, Lea Michele, Robert De Niro, Ashton Kutcher, Hilary Swank, Abigail Breslin, Michelle Pfeiffer, […]

Jon Bon Jovi joins Ashton Kutcher and Lea Michele in New Year’s Eve

Monday, January 24th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant Jon Bon Jovi, Seth Meyers and Til Schweiger have joined Garry Marshall’s NEW YEAR’S EVE ensemble romantic comedy about several relationships on New Year’s Eve.  So far, the film has a few people attached to it, including Sienna Miller, Zac Efron, Lea Michele, Robert De Niro, Ashton Kutcher, Hilary Swank, Abigail […]

Sienna Miller joins Zac Efron and Lea Michele in New Year’s Eve

Thursday, January 6th, 2011

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant I know a lot of people didn’t really enjoy last year’s romantic comedy VALENTINE’S DAY, but I thought it was director Garry Marshall at his best.  He has such a fantastic way of intertwining stories that when he said he was going to do the same kind of concept but on […]

Zac Efron and Halle Berry may join Sarah Jessica Parker for New Year’s Eve

Thursday, December 16th, 2010

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant Garry Marshall’s upcoming film NEW YEAR’S EVE is starting to pull in some more heavy Hollywood hitters with the addition of Sarah Jessica Parker (SEX AND THE CITY) and two more potential cast members in Halle Berry (FRANKIE AND ALICE) and Zac Efron.  Marshall already has quite a cast lined up […]

Zac Efron to star in Die in a Gunfight

Wednesday, December 8th, 2010

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant Zac Efron is attached to star in the drama DIE IN A GUNFIGHT which is movie written by NYU alumni Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari.  The film follows a young man who is prone to fighting and obsessed with death and decides to push the limits by becoming romantically involved with […]

Zac Efron and Charlie St. Cloud coming to Blu-ray

Thursday, September 9th, 2010

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant Universal Studios Home Entertainment has announced that the summer drama CHARLIE ST. CLOUD, starring Zac Efron, Ray Liotta and Kim Basinger, will be available on Blu-ray November 9, 2010. The film follows Charlie (Efron) and how dramatically his life changes after he survives a car accident in which his brother dies.  […]

Justin Timberlake and Zac Efron vying for Memphis lead

Saturday, August 21st, 2010

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant Looks like the Broadway musical ‘Memphis’ is becoming a bit of a hot commodity in Hollywood these days.  The Tony award-winning film has attracted the attention of both Zac Efron and Justin Timberlake, along with director Oliver Stone.  Although everything is pure speculation at this point, all three stars have been […]

Inception is tops again at the box office, Twilight: Eclipse out of the top ten

Sunday, August 1st, 2010

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant With very little competition at the box office this weekend, it’s no surprise that the great INCEPTION would hold tight at #1 for the third straight week.  The film’s biggest competition came from DINNER FOR SCHMUCKS, which actually beat INCEPTION on Friday’s totals, but lost ground the rest of the weekend.  […]

Zac Efron set for The Lucky One based on the Nicholas Sparks novel

Tuesday, July 27th, 2010

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant Zac Efron is the kind of star that’s made for a Nicholas Sparks adaptation.  Efron has a tendency to look like he’s about to cry, even when he’s happy.  So that overly dramatic feel will serve him well in what is presumably an overly sappy Sparks novel.  In THE LUCKY ONE, […]

Zac Efron to star in new workplace comedy

Tuesday, July 13th, 2010

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant Zac Effron has his own production studio called “Ninjas Runnin’ Wild Productions”.  You know what that sounds like?  It sounds like it was named by a 16 year-old kid with too much money.  Anyway, Zac Effron and NRW have just jumped on a workplace comedy from scribe Jason Filardi that Effron […]

Zac Efron in Charlie St. Cloud trailer

Saturday, May 15th, 2010

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant The first thing that stuck out to me in the new trailer for CHARLIE ST. CLOUD is Zac Efron trying to pitch a baseball.  Yeah, the film looks depressing and yes, it even looks pretty decent.  But Efron trying to teach a kid how to pitch a baseball just doesn’t seem […]

High School Musical’s Zac Efron launders money

Thursday, April 15th, 2010

Posted by: Nathan Swank Our little High School Musical kid is growing up so fast. Zac Efron will co-produce and star in a Swedish thriller remake called Snabba Cash meaning “easy money.” Not to be confused with another recent Swedish crime thriller, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo to be directed by David Fincher. Based […]

Zac Efron to star in the spy-thriller Fire, eyes science-fiction role

Thursday, January 28th, 2010

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant Everyone’s favorite teen heartthrob, Zac Efron has lined up a couple of projects that will help him break out of that High School Musical stigma.  The advantage for him is that most of his new audience (adults) never saw him in the musicals, so we have no association.  But his new […]
