'Divergent': 10 Things We Learned on the Set of the Shailene Woodley Blockbuster

Posted By Sandie Angulo Chen on Jan 24th 2014 9:05AM
Summit If you've seen the full-length trailer for "Divergent," you understand why we're so excited about the dystopian romance based on author Veronica Roth's best-selling books. Roth's Chicago-set trilogy about a society where teenagers must choose Factions (communities) based on their character strengths (Erudite for the intelligent; Amity for the friendly; Candor for the honest; Abnegation fo... read more

'Muppets Most Wanted': 12 Things We Learned on the Set of Kermit & Miss Piggy's New Movie (PHOTOS)

Posted By Sharon Knolle on January 01, 2014
Last year, Moviefone was invited to the set of "Muppets Most Wanted," and the sequel picks up right where the 2011 installment, "The Muppets," left off, with the gang having reclaimed their theater on Hollywood Blvd. Starring in the new movie are Tina Fey as a Russian prison warden, Ty Burrell as an Interpol agent, and Ricky Gervais as the villain, the aptly named Dominic Badguy. None of the ...

'Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory' Behind-the-Scenes Secrets Revealed (VIDEO)

Posted By Kelly Woo on August 08, 2013
"Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory" has been terrorizing kids for over 40 years (the boat scene still gives us nightmares). And while the classic 1971 movie has inspired quite a few theories about what's really happening on-screen, there was apparently a lot going on off-screen, too. In the above video, WGN Morning News reveals some delicious tidbits about "Willy Wonka & the Chocol...

Halle Berry Breaks Foot While On Location for 'Cloud Atlas'

Posted By Sharon Knolle on September 09, 2011
Poor Halle Berry: The Oscar winner broke her foot while on location for her movie, 'Cloud Atlas,' according to People. Set photos show her running in high heels for the thriller, but Berry actually suffered the injury off-set when she was "walking in Mallorca on a day off from filming," according to a statement by Warner Bros. "Production has adjusted their schedule and will continue filming,"...

50-Year-Old George Clooney Still Loves His Juvenile Pranks

Posted By Sharon Knolle on September 09, 2011
Even turning 50 and making serious Oscar-type movies, hasn't slowed down George Clooney's famous on-set pranking. 'Ides of March' co-star Ryan Gosling revealed that the seemingly highbrow actor loves to indulge in lowbrow gags: "He will come up to you and tell you something very serious, and then you walk away and you realize your pants are wet. He's had like an Evian spray bottle. He's been s...

Photo of the Day: Ingmar Bergman On the Set of 'Jaws' (No, Really)

Posted By Sharon Knolle on September 09, 2011
Your likely first thought on seeing this photo of Ingmar Bergman on the set of 'Jaws' -- Photoshop! And yet that really does appear to be the legendary Swedish director examining the mouth of Bruce the shark. Since this photo comes courtesy of The Criterion Collection's Facebook page (and not, say, eBay), it seems pretty legit....

Brad Pitt Insisted Gwyneth Paltrow's Head Stay in the Box in 'Se7en'

Posted By Sharon Knolle on September 09, 2011
Brad Pitt has been quite chatty lately (guess he really wants you to see 'Moneyball'), and he's now revealed that he nearly bailed on 'Se7en' when the producers got cold feet and wanted to -- spoiler alert -- put something other than Gwyneth Paltrow's head in the box during the final, shocking scene....

5 Infamous Actor-Director Fights

Posted By Sharon Knolle on June 06, 2011
Megan Fox's public dissing of Michael Bay, which later led to her getting fired from 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon,' is hardly the first time an actor and director have clashed on- or off-set. When big budgets and big egos are at stake, major blow-ups are almost inevitable. While some of these famous players go head-to-head, the results are often just as explosive as any blockbuster, but...

Bruce Greenwood's Super-Secret 'Super 8' Role

Posted By Sharon Knolle on June 06, 2011
Don't recall seeing Bruce Greenwood in 'Super 8'? You didn't, and yet the actor -- who played Captain Pike in J.J. Abrams' 'Star Trek' reboot -- did make a big contribution to the film. In the 'Super 8' credits, he's billed as "Cooper," yet there's no one named Cooper in the movie. Now the actor is talking about the part he played in the sci-fi movie, one that was more than a little un...

'Raiders of the Lost Ark' Stuntman Vic Armstrong on Taking Punches for Harrison Ford

Posted By Sharon Knolle on June 06, 2011
Timing is everything for a stuntman, and just in time for the 30th anniversary of 'Raiders of the Lost Ark,' Vic Armstrong, who doubled for Harrison Ford on the iconic film, shares the story behind some of those classic scenes in his new memoir, 'The True Adventures of World's Greatest Stuntman.' The British-born Armstrong, who'd already doubled for Roger Moore in 'Live and Let Die' and Ch...

30 Things You Might Not Know About 'Raiders of the Lost Ark'

Posted By Sharon Knolle on June 06, 2011
In honor of the 30th anniversary of 'Raiders of the Lost Ark,' we've unearthed 30 little-known facts about the beloved action-adventure movie. Diehard 'Raiders' fans already know that Tom Selleck, not Harrison Ford, was the first choice to play Indy, but some other big names were in the running too, including a recent Oscar winner who turned down the role of a lifetime. And you probably...

'Transformers: Dark of the Moon' -- A Conversation With Michael Bay and James Cameron

Posted By Jenna Busch on May 05, 2011
UPDATE: Before this piece went to print, the Hollywood Reporter stated that 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon' has been moved up from Friday, July 1st to Wednesday, June 29th. Well, you don't see this every day. A few nights ago, we were lucky enough to not only preview some footage from 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon,' but we got to hear a conversation about 3D with directors Michael Bay and Ja...

Moviefone visited the set of 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I' and spoke to actors Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter), Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) and Mark Williams (Arthur Weasley), and directer David Yates.

Exclusive 'You Again' Clip: Kristen Bell as a Nerd, Betty White Being Awesome

Posted By Gabrielle Dunn on September 09, 2010
It's rare that a female-helmed comedy includes so much awesome physical humor as well as a star-studded cast, but the upcoming 'You Again' has both in spades. As if Betty White's hilarious presence weren't enough, the film, about a young woman who returns home for her brother's wedding to find he's marrying her high school nemesis, features Jamie Lee Curtis vs. Sigourney Weaver in a decades...

Meet the Robert Rodriguez Acting Troupe

Posted By Jordan Newmark on September 09, 2010
Being in a Robert Rodriguez movie is a lot like joining the mafia: there are usually a lot of guns and, once you're in, you never get out. Rodriguez is a ground-breaking director who jumped on board the HD train early on and touted the merits of 3D well before we ever heard of 'Avatar.' He's also intensely loyal to the actors and actresses he casts. Rodriguez has been afforded this luxury becau...

Blockbuster Preparing For Bankruptcy With $1 Billion Debt

Posted By Bryan Enk on August 08, 2010
Remember back when you used to make it a Blockbuster Night? That was probably before the days of Netflix and other home video delivery services, which have been tearing the traditional video rental chains asunder since the beginning of the century. Once upon a time, Blockbuster was the biggest game in town -- now, according to the Los Angeles Times, the once-mighty company is $1 billion in t...

Meet Jeff Glosser, Michael J. Fox's Basketball Double in 'Teen Wolf'

Posted By Dan Solomon on August 08, 2010
In the pantheon of great basketball movies, 'Teen Wolf' is often overlooked. And that's a shame. After all, it has every bit as much dramatic tension as 'Hoosiers' or 'White Men Can't Jump' -- but it also has a werewolf. Do 'Hoosiers' and 'White Men Can't Jump' have werewolves? No, they do not. 'Teen Wolf' > 'Hoosiers' and 'White Men Can't Jump.' Michael J. Fox, of course, has deservedly ...

Seven Things We Learned on the Set of 'Dinner for Schmucks'

Posted By Laura Prudom on August 08, 2010
If you're a connoisseur of fine French filmmaking, you might be familiar with the concept of 'Dinner for Schmucks' -- a comedy of errors based around one disastrous evening meal -- from its first iteration as 'The Dinner Game,' (or 'Le Diner De Cons,' for those who can pull off the accent). In its simplest terms, the film centers around a group of arrogant executives who hold regular dinner par...

15 Things We Learned on the Set of 'The Green Hornet'

Posted By Maggie Furlong on September 09, 2010
Going green is about to get even cooler. Sure there's the environment and that 'Green Lantern' guy, but there's also Seth Rogen as newspaper heir Britt Reid, a.k.a. 'The Green Hornet' (releases Jan. 14, 2011). This big budget comic book movie, now being tweaked for 3D, combines an unlikely hero (Rogen), an even more unlikely sidekick (barely bilingual Taiwanese actor Jay Chou plays Kato) and th...

10 Things We Learned on the Set of 'Tron: Legacy'

Posted By Todd Gilchrist on September 09, 2010
Last summer I was lucky enough to join a small group of journalists in Vancouver to visit the set of 'Tron: Legacy.' It's hard to say exactly how excited I am for the long-awaited follow-up to its groundbreaking but box office-deficient 1982 predecessor – perhaps it will suffice to reveal that I'm currently stretching out a pair of childhood 'Tron' Underoos to wear on opening day. But...

Behind the Scenes With the Stars of 'The Other Guys'

Posted By Moviefone Staff on June 06, 2010
August 6 sees the return of the buddy-cop movie with the release of 'The Other Guys.' The action-comedy from co-writer and director Adam McKay will re-team him with his Ron Burgundy leading man, Will Ferrell. If the site of Ferrell laying down the law is an odd site, then his police partner is another off-beat choice: Mark Wahlberg. Wahlberg is no stranger to tough cop roles (hello, 'The Departe...
