If they ever shoot a remake of The Princess Bride there’s a very good chance Cary Elwes won’t be involved. In fact, he’ll probably have some choice words for anybody who asks. When news broke earlier this week that “very famous people” have expressed interest in doing a new version of the 1987 Rob Reiner masterpiece, Elwes took to Twitter, acknowledging the original as “a perfect movie” that he wouldn’t want to see damaged by a remake. Of course, though millions of fans would definitely have his back, Elwes admittedly might be a little biased when it comes to The Princess Bride. After all, he told us, it’s the movie that completely changed his life! (Click on the media bar below to hear Cary Elwes)
Ad Astra is a celluloid contradiction. It is a film about the vast expanse of space, yet its story is a very, very personal one. Brad Pitt plays an astronaut who goes out into the cosmos looking to get some closure from the loss of his father on an earlier mission, and he told us the movie really focuses in on these intimate details of his character’s psyche, even though it’s set among the stars.

When The Voice returns to NBC next week, it will be without one familiar face — Adam Levine, who’s been a judge on every season of the show up to now, decided it was time to move on. So who will Blake Shelton have as a foil now? This could get interesting … it’s his girlfriend, Gwen Stefani! Of course, Stefani’s been on The Voice before — she was a coach during seasons 7, 9, and 12, and an advisor during seasons 8 and 10. How does she feel about being back? She’s excited. Very excited.

The new season of The Voice premieres Monday at 8/7c on NBC.
When it comes time to write an epitaph for Sylvester Stallone’s career, two characters will certainly stand out: Rocky Balboa and John Rambo. Though both characters are iconic and unmistakably Stallone, the actor is able to separate them by their outlooks on life. Rocky, he told us, is the eternal optimist, while Rambo may be hopelessly broken. (Click on the media bar below to hear Sylvester Stallone)

Joaquin Phoenix was torn. Joker was not the kind of movie he ordinarily does — the three-time Oscar nominee is one of the few Hollywood names who’d never been in a single Marvel or DC movie. And the character itself … it had been played to perfection before, by screen legend Jack Nicholson in the 1989 Batman movie and by Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight. Still, the more Phoenix looked into the character and his story, the more he wanted to do it, especially after he had a chance to meet the new film’s director, Todd Phillips.(Click on the media bar below to hear Joaquin Phoenix)
