It was Matthew McConaughey's 48th birthday at the weekend, but rather than spending it in a hot tub full of A-listers, he went round handing out Thanksgiving turkeys instead.
Best-selling author says the planned small screen take on his epic book series will not be related to this year's big screen misfire.
Stephen King has offered up his two cents as to why the recent adaptation of his book 'The Dark Tower' lost its shirt at the box office.
The review embargo has lifted for the long-awaited adaptation of Stephen King's 'The Dark Tower' and it's not looking pretty.
It’s the moment Stephen King fans have been waiting for – his fantasy epic ‘The Dark Tower’ has finally been brought to life. After some teasers from its stars Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey on Twitter yesterday, and some pretty cool motion posters released online, we’ve got our first proper look at the forthcoming movie. Elba plays the ‘gunslinger’ Roland Deschain, the last of his kind who roam the post-apocalyptic Mid-World, which exists in parallel to Earth, in search of the ‘dark tower’, the nexus of all universes.
For the film Gold (in theaters now), Matthew McConaughey did something that was totally new for him, if all too familiar to the rest of us: He got really out of shape. “I was Captain Fun — that was my nickname around the house, because I was [saying] yes to everything,” McConaughey told E! News. McConaughey’s diet plan — which he described as “six months to say yes to whatever you want to eat and whatever you want to drink, whenever” — included tons of cheeseburgers (his favorite food) and beer, along with a total avoidance of exercise.
“Kubo and the Two Strings” is a 3D stop-motion animated fantasy action adventure film about a boy on a quest to gather the lost pieces of his father’s armour, in an attempt to prevent his demented grandfather from killing him. It features the voice talents of Art Parkinson (Kubo), Charlize Theron (Monkey), Matthew McConaughey (Beetle), Ralph Fiennes (the Moon King), and Rooney Mara (the Sisters). Although exams are just around the corner, “Kubo and the Two Strings” is perfect for the whole family, with its touching themes and fluid animation.
Matthew McConaughey and Naomi Watts in a movie directed by Oscar-nominated Gus Van Sant should be a sure thing. The movie was made last year, and is set in the Aokigahara forest in Japan, at the bottom of Mount Fuji, known as the ‘suicide forest’ due to the number of people who go there to take their own lives (54 were recorded in 2010 alone). McConaughey plays a businessman who goes there to do just that, but meets another man, Takumi, played by Ken Watanabe, who is planning to do the same.
It took a few tries to get up and running — it’s all part of the fun and unpredictability of transmitting live — but we took to Facebook Live today for a sit-down with the voice stars of Kubo and the Two Strings, Charlize Theron and Matthew McConaughey (watch above). The film comes to us from the stop-motion animation maestros at Laika, the studio behind Coraline, ParaNorman, and The Boxtrolls. It was the pedigree of those films, particularly Coraline, that lured these two Oscar winners to lend their voices.
Gary Oldman has the “role of a lifetime” playing a dwarf, it features Matthew McConaughey and Kate Beckinsale at the height of their mainstream fame, yet it’s been called one of the worst and most tasteless movies ever made. When the British actress signed on for 2003’s ‘Tiptoes’, written and directed by cult filmmaker Matthew Bright, she agreed to do it for SAG minimum wage – with one condition. The now-63-year-old (below) had actually written the script for ‘Tiptoes’ when he was 18.
Matthew McConaughey films Stephen Gagham’s ‘Gold’ on October 4, 2015 in New York City (Splash News) For his new film Gold, Matthew McConaughey has acquired a beer belly, a receding hairline, and an atrocious taste in neckties. New photos from the New York City set show the former Magic Mike star looking down-and-out with an ill-fitting business suit and bad combover. It’s all part of the act: In Gold, McConaughey plays a struggling businessman who attempts to literally strike gold in the Indonesian jungle, with disastrous results. Matthew McConaughey films Stephen Gagham’s 'Gold’ on October 4, 2015 in New York City (Splash News) Written and directed by Stephen Gaghan (Syriana), Gold is inspired by the true story of the Bre-X mining scandal.
Even while lost in the forever of space, Matthew McConaughey can geek out with the best of them.
