Glee has already taken over the small screen. Now, it’s coming to a theater near you! Glee: The 3D Concert Movie will begin its two-week run tomorrow, with viewers being treated to behind-the-scenes shots and interviews with various cast members. As well as numerous on-stage performances, of course. Glee 3D Concert Movie Trailer In an exclusive interview with our friends at Movie Fanatic, Darren Criss, Lea Michele, Ashley Fink, Jenna Ushkowitz, Amber Riley and Chris Colfer opened up about the experience. Visit that site for the complete Q&A , excerpts from which are below: Criss, on staying in character : I definitely blew it a couple times. I was in San Francisco making shout-outs to my parents and Blaine’s probably never even been to San Francisco [laughs]. Riley, on feedback from fans : One of the great things about this show is social media: Twitter and Facebook. We continually get letters and tweets from fans telling us how each character has touched them in some way and how they changed them in some way. Colfer, on serving as a gay role model : It’s crazy when you represent such a select community. They always thank you so much when it’s really them who are brave and the strong ones. The stories that you hear are heartbreaking and inspiring.
Compton, a boxing club and Justin Bieber… what the heck do these three things have in common? Well, I am about to tell you! It all started March 1 st 1994 on a Tuesday…Ok totally kidding. It started at this year’s Teen Choice Awards. My friend @itsjustme_brie (Brie) lives in New Jersey and was flying to LA to stay for the weekend, so that we could attend the Teen Choice Awards. We thought for sure we would meet Justin, get a picture, fall madly in love and live happily ever after! That’s the dream, Right? But honestly, we just wanted to meet Justin, tell him how much he means to us and get a picture with him. Sadly they didn’t even come close to happening. The TCA’s were a TOTAL bust! There was no red carpet that fans had access to, the celebrities were completely separate from our section and Justin and Selena left the show early. So, there was literally NO chance for us to meet him. We were heartbroken! Brie had come all this way and there was NO hope! But, as you all should know by now there is NO SUCH THING as no hope when it comes to Justin Drew Bieber. The next day Brie and I were in recovery mode. We had mega blister on our feet from our high heels, we were tried and so unbelievably bummed we didn’t meet Justin. The next day was Tuesday, also Brie’s last day in LA. We had a whole day planned to make her trip not a total waist. We were going to do the usual Los Angles stuff, Hollywood Blvd, Venice Beach, Santa Monica Pier ECT. Brie and I both assumed that Justin had gone to NYC with Kenny so we didn’t even bother trying to find where he was. While Brie and I were getting ready I grabbed my phone and scanned through my instagram. I saw a picture of Justin outside a gym called “LA SANDS BOXING CLUB”. I scrolled down and there was another post of a street sign “Compton Ave”. I ran into the bathroom, where brie was getting ready, and started jumping up and down yelling “he’s still in LA, He’s still in LA” Brie looked at me like I was an insane person and said “What are you talking about?” I showed her the pictures, she freaked. I don’t think I have seen anyone packed and out of the house so fast in my life. I Google mapped “LA SANDS BOXING CLUB” and we were on the road to find BIEBER! We really had no idea if Justin was still there or if he had taken that picture as he was leaving, but we didn’t care there was a small chance and that’s all we needed. We drove about an hour and a half and my GPS said we were at our destination. However, there was no “LA SANDS BOXING CLUB” in sight! I looked at the end address on my GPS and it had taken us to the wrong place! We were seriously FREAKING OUT! At this point it had been two hours since Justin had posted the picture and we thought for sure he would be gone. Still Brie and I both decided that we had come this far, we had to see if he was there. I typed the CORRECT address into the GPS and we were on the road again. Traffic was BAD we were trying to go as fast as possible but it wasn’t looking good. FINALLY we made our way to where the photo-shoot was at. We pull up to the parking lot and you know that sinking, butterfly, nauseous, OMG feeling you get in your stomach when something good happens? That’s what was going on for me. My stomach was doing flips, turns and all other crazy things because… THIS WAS IT! There was a large trailer, a hummer, a Mercedes, and the sign from Justin’s instagram picture. We parked and sat in the car for a moment to scope things out. There were people walking in and out of the trailer to the gym, two people sitting on chairs out front but no sign of Justin. We decided now or never and got out. We walked to the people sitting in the chairs and I said “this is totally going to freak you out but is Justin Bieber inside?” The pretty red head looks at me and says rudely “No, he left an hour ago”. I said “Oh ok thanks” but I thought something was fishy! Never trust a model is my motto but what do I know. I walked over to the sign to take a picture. I figured that’s the least I could get out of this mission. Just as I am taking the picture a guy comes out light up a cigarette and asks, “Can I help you? Are you lost?” I respond “Oh no just getting a picture, Justin is inside right?” He says, “Yea, but there is security, you can’t go up there.” I say, “He’s has to leave sometime” The guy at the door puts out his cigarette, winks at me and says, “It end at 4:00PM” I about died then and there! We were both SO happy! Justin was no more than 20 feet from us and he would be walking out the door in about an hour! So what did we do? We waited. About 10 minutes later Ryan Good walks out of the trailer and towards us. As soon as he get close enough I blurt out our story to him as fast as I possibly can. He looks at me with this VERY scared look and starts to back up slowly he says “How… did … you … find… us” . Again I blurt out how we found out where they were. Ryan still looking pretty scared says, “Umm ok, well nice seeing you again” and walks up the stairs. I couldn’t keep from laughing; Brie and I both were cracking up. It was official, we were stalkers and it was embarrassing but none the less hilarious. Another 20 minutes pass, Brie and I are just talking, she has her back to the door and BAM. There is Justin, Shirtless, Wet, and seemingly beat up (make up from the photo shoot) walking right past us! I say “Hi Justin” He raised his left hand just enough to show his newest tattoo on his side shows and say “Hi ladies” My heart stopped. I said “Can we have a picture when you have time” He says “Yea” and walks in the trailer. Brie and I are both dying inside but we kept our cool. Ryan walks past us and I tell him “Sorry to have totally scared the crap out of you” He said “Na, you guys are cool I was just caught off guard” He walked away and seconds later Justin came out of the trailer. He walked right towards us with his new security guard AKA White Kenny. I tell Justin, “We’re not going to scream or freak out” Justin smiled and said “Ok good” This seemed to get the security guard to calm down a little, he took a couple steps back and let us have some space with Justin. I reach out my hand and say “Hi Justin I am Ashley, Nice to meet you” he says it’s nice to meet me too. He does the same with Brie. Then he says “Sorry I look crazy it’s from the make-up” We all laugh and I tell him “Don’t worry the other guy looked MUCH worse” (there was an MMA fighter that came out prior who look beat up) He laughed and said “That’s cuz I beat him up” This whole time he is smiling that amazing genuine smile of his that just melts your heart. So I say “Ok, ready to take a picture?” He said “Yep” so I stood super close to him, held up my iPhone and said “ready” he put his hand on the small of my back and said “yep”. Then I realized I didn’t want one of those cookie cutter pictures with him, not that they are bad, ANY picture with Justin is a GREAT picture. I just wanted something different so I turned and looked right into those AMAZING eyes and said “Can we do a funny one” He said “Anything you want” I about died!! (Actually I did die. I have no idea how I’m writing this right now! Justin Bieber told me “ANYTHING YOU WANT” Like really!! That happened in real life, to me!) So I stick my tongue out towards him and he does some kind of weird face and I snap the picture. I look at him again and ask “Can we do a normal one too” He says “Of course”. After that its Brie’s turn she walks up to him and says “Congratulations on all of your Teen Choice Awards” He says “thank you” He puts his am on her shoulder and I snap the picture. As they step back from each other he ran his hand down her back. She’s dying I can see it in her face. We say our thank yous. We made sure to tell him what a great guy he is, how good he is so great to us fan and thanks for being so cool about everything. We both get hugs which were nothing short of amazing! As were walking away he says “Are you guys from around here?” We both start to laugh a little thinking, no Justin, we are not from Compton. Brie says No, that she came all the way out here from New Jersey to support him. He says “Oh wow, really? That’s awesome thank you” I say that I live about an hour away. He says “oh ok” but he was still looking at me funny… so I say “Oh yea and I was in your movie” He points at me and a huge smile crept up in his face and he was like “OHHHH I knew I recognized you from somewhere” (Justin Bieber recognized me, from his movie where I confessed my undying love for him!!!! Like really??? Again I about die, I was above my body thinking this is NOT my life) I laugh and say “Yep, That’s me” He smiled yet again and said “You girl have a great day” We both thank him for the millionth time. He says it was “No problem” he waved and we got in my car. He was still outside of his car and we had played so cool we didn’t want to freak just yet. I put the car out of the driveway and drove off. Justin waved goodbye and smiled! The second we were out of his view we complete FREAKED OUT. Screaming, clapping, Brie cried totally picture perfect. So what do Compton, a boxing club and Justin Bieber have in common? Brie and I DUH! Meeting Justin was completely AWESOME! Who has the chance to just meet Justin alone and be themselves with him? It was unreal! So, thank you Justin, for being YOU, the grateful, humble, down to earth, loving kid from Canada who will never forget his fans and will always be Kidrauhl, just a grown up sexier version . – @AshleyAnne805 & @itsjustme_brie Read the original: Compton, a boxing club and Justin Bieber… what the heck do these…
I will NEVER forget August 27th, 2010. The day that plain old me, Cassie, from little Rhode Island met Justin Bieber. It was my best friend’s birthday and Justin had a concert at the Dunkin Donuts Center about 15 minutes away from us. My friend got a VIP Soundcheck Party ticket for her birthday but I didn’t have a ticket in general, and as usual, like the day of any concert at the DDC , we walked around Providence trying to meet someone- anyone. The day before we had met Justin’s camera crew, Jon M. Chu, and some of his dancers at a hotel. But the day of the concert we hung out near all of the tour buses coming in for the show. We followed one of the venues runner cars down to the gate and JUSTIN BIEBER ROLLED DOWN THE WINDOW AND WAVED TO US. We were in shock so we stood there and waved like idiots, then when the car drove away we started screaming of course! When the afternoon rolled around, my friend had to go in for the VIP thing, and my friend Zack Tremblay and I were hanging out together near the tour buses. Jayden Smith, the camera crew, and Scooter Braun came out to say hi to everyone waiting around. Jayden was getting everyone excited for the show and then Scooter asked if everyone was going. I was the only one that said no, and I asked him if there was anyway he could get me in. He said nope sorry and walked away. I was so bummed. Then all of a sudden Zack goes “OMG CASSIE JUSTIN IS COMING OVER HERE!” And there he was! Justin and Jayden were walking over to us followed by the cameras with Scooter! Justin came over and shook hands with everyone and said hello, and I was a little sad that I only got to see him for a second… but then Scooter tapped him on the shoulder and pointed to me. Justin effing Bieber walked up to me and said, “I hear you’re not going to the show tonight, why?” and I was like “Yeah…I never saved enough money for a good ticket” and he goes “Oh that sucks, it’s gonna be awesome.” And I was like “I bet!” And then he goes ”Well, I have a couple of extra tickets right here…” AND REACHED IN HIS POCKETS AND HANDED ME TWO FRONT ROW, DEAD CENTER TICKETS FOR ME AND MY LITTLE SISTER . He also gave one to my friend, Nicole! I didn’t even know what to do, I started shaking and held my arms out for a hug, and in the middle of our hug, I just kissed him on the cheek! I JUST KISSED HIM, RIGHT THERE ON THE CHEEK IN FRONT OF LIKE 50 PEOPLE, INCLUDIND CAMERAS. He smiled, and I thanked him and Scooter a billion times and then he went back inside. I didn’t even know what to do I just started crying of happiness. Scooter also teased me saying “I saw that!” and I was like, “What, me kissing him?” and he said “No, he kissed YOU BACK!” I though I was going to faint at that point! I thanked Scooter again and again and all of his crew, I was so out of control hahaha. I called my parents crying, my friend who was inside, and everyone else I could. The concert was by far the best night of my life and the biggest miracle I ever could have asked for. Seeing the scene played on commercials, in the movie, on perezhilton.com, etc. was just mind-blowing. Once again, thank you Scooter Braun, Jus tin, and the rest of his team. You all are amazing. NEVER SAY NEVER! -Cassie Click here to see Cassie in one of the movie trailers! Read more from the original source: I will NEVER forget August 27th, 2010. The day that plain old…
Look, Nick Lachey knows he’s 37. He knows the pressure is on. And he’s giving it to new wife Vanessa Minnillo as often as possible. So far, though, the unprotected sex is yet to lead to a child. “Trust me, it would make me very happy,” Lachey told E! News of procreating. “Family is very important. It’s very important to us, and I’m sure that will be around the corner.” Hammering home the point that she’s getting hammered every night, Minnilo updated her Twitter page soon after getting married on July 15 to include “wifey by night” and “wannabe mommy all the time.” How is married life treating the couple? Just dandy, says Lachey: “We’re still in the honeymoon period. Not much changed, which, for me, is a good thing. We’ve been together five years. We were very comfortable in our relationship before the marriage.”
A movie about two characters who switch bodies isn’t exactly ground-breaking. It’s been done many times before. But two of the funniest men in Hollywood still jumped at the chance to star on The Change-Up and they explained why in a roundtable discussion this week: because the R rating opened up a world of dirty, fun possibilities. The Change-Up Trailer “It was fun to see this kind of premise – which is usually a PG premise – executed in such a hard way, in such an edge,” Ryan Reynolds said. “It was no-holds barred. It was the first script I’ve read in a long time where I cried laughing.” The Change-Up comes out on Friday. You can check out the official trailer above and read the full roundtable transcript at Movie Fanatic !
His Bane is ‘not the guy in Joel Schumacher’s film,’ Hardy tells Total Film. By Terri Schwartz Tom Hardy as Bane in “The Dark Knight Rises” Photo: Warner Bros. Pictures The Man Who Broke the Bat is opening up about “The Dark Knight Rises.” Tom Hardy, who is currently filming the final installment of Christopher Nolan’s “Batman” trilogy in Pittsburgh, has been keeping mum on the subject for a while now. But in a recent interview with Total Film, the “Warrior” star opened up as much as he has to date about his role in the movie. “I think Bane’s f—ing cool so I’m really excited to play him,” Hardy told the magazine. “It’s not the guy in Joel Schumacher’s film [played by Jeep Swenson], but it shouldn’t disappoint fanboys.” Set photos and video surfaced on the Internet over the weekend, showing Hardy’s Bane in his full glory. In addition to showing off a clear look at Marion Cotillard’s Miranda Tate, the “Dark Knight Rises” pictures showed Hardy’s Bane and Christian Bale’s Batman in the middle of a heated battle that could occur at the climax of the flick. But will he be the villain to literally break Batman in “The Dark Knight Rises”? Hardy won’t tell. “All I can say is that Chris has a plan up his sleeve that’s not at all disappointing. And that is a definite choice that’s watertight in every respect,” he teased. Check out brand-new photos from the set of “Dark Knight Rises.” When MTV News caught up with Hardy at San Diego Comic-Con , he was unwilling to even talk about his opinion of the movie’s recently released trailer . After giving a convoluted answer about being a person and how nice it is to see people happy because “it’s a lot better than seeing them violent,” he finally shared his thoughts about what fans have seen of the movie so far. ” ‘Dark Knight Rises’ looks like it’s going to be an awesome, awesome movie. I saw the trailer myself, and I am very excited too,” Hardy conceded. “I should be working right now. I came to Comic-Con just to have a little look.” Check out everything we’ve got on “The Dark Knight Rises.” For breaking news and previews of the latest comic book movies — updated around the clock — visit SplashPage.MTV.com .

She’s halfway to becoming a cartoon character herself, so it was only appropriate that Katy Perry would voice Smurfette in the new live-action/animation hybrid The Smurfs , which hits theaters this weekend. While the movie doesn’t answer the age-old question “Is Smurfette the only female Smurf? If so, does that make her the town bicycle (you know, everybody’s had a ride)?”, but we did get this smurfin’ great panty peek from Katy, scantily dressed as always at the film’s premiere. Katy might be relegated to struttin’ her stuff at film premieres, but she’s far from the first sexy star to bring, ahem, adult appeal to a cartoon-inspired family flick. Dads need to have something to look at when they accompany the kiddies to the movies, right? Join us after the jump for sexy pics of Halle Berry , Rachael Leigh Cook , Kelly Lynch , and more!
For those weary of parsing which part of the post- Dirty Harry , post-Tarantino cops and robbers homage is demonstrating its fondness for the genre and which is just declaring it, writer and director John Michael McDonagh’s The Guard is more exhausting than entertaining. Ideally one would have better things to do while in the act of watching a movie — like say watching the movie — but from its assaultive, nihilistic prologue to its last flat invocation of American culture, The Guard foregrounds the extent to which it is leaning on artifice and affect to get over.
Crazy, Stupid, Love. is, for the most part, an effective love story, but the two figures in thrall to one another aren’t the ones you think: The magnetism between the movie’s two male stars, Steve Carell and Ryan Gosling, is what really makes the movie tick. The women — and we’re talking about women like Julianne Moore, Emma Stone, Marisa Tomei and coltish relative newcomer Annaleigh Tipton — almost function as accessories, although, as wonderful as these actresses are, that still isn’t necessarily a liability. Everyone in Crazy, Stupid, Love. is served well by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa’s crisp, intelligent direction. Their instincts keep the story moving deftly; if only, right at the finish line, the movie didn’t suffer from a giant failure of nerve.
