  • Baxter and Will Ferrell in 'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.' (Paramount Pictures)

    Here at Yahoo Movies, in order to bring you the biggest movie stories, we interview the world's biggest stars. It's our job (rough, we know), so we rarely get star-struck.

    Of course, that all went out the window when we spoke with Baxter, Ron Burgundy's faithful pooch and one of the top dog actors of all-time.

    On the occasion of this week's Blu-ray release of "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues," Baxter phoned in to give us this very rare and special interview, translated by the film's writer-director, Adam McKay.

    The mere prospect of such a colossal interview put our proverbial tail between our legs. Perhaps we were barking up the wrong tree?

    But while a huge deal like Baxter could easily be intimidating, that wasn't the case at all. Baxter put us right at ease. We found a dog comfortable in his own fur, full of interesting insider scoop, and an all-around good boy.

  • Is this the end of the road for Sly and the boys?

    In this new exclusive "roll call" for this summer's "The Expendables 3," a title card boldly announces that Barney Ross, aka co-writer and star Sylvester Stallone, and his team are back together for "One Last Ride." But if they are going out, it's with a bang (and a boom, and more than a few ka-pows). And they are bringing along some new — but very familiar — faces.

    Headlining the expanded cast is Mel Gibson, as Barney's ex-partner and current nemesis Conrad Stonebanks (how's that for a villain name?), and Harrison Ford, looking right at home as he pilots a helicopter (something the action veteran can do in real life, by the way). Other new team members: Stallone's "Assassins" co-star Antonio Banderas; his "Demolition Man" co-star Wesley Snipes; and Kelsey Grammer (no, really!).

    Greatest Actor Alive (No. 40): Javier Bardem

    Age: 45

    Stating the Case: Javier Bardem's filmography is a treasure trove. Most of us know he started out in Spanish cinema, but did you know he's been acting since he was a child and that he comes from a long line of filmmakers and thespians? Acting really is in his blood. And it shows onscreen. Bardem can be an eccentric, ice-cold killer in one film ("No Country for Old Men") and an affable playboy in the next ("Vicky Christina Barcelona"). He not only morphs from role to role with ostensible ease, but he also has a knack for bringing something truly original to his characters — awkward psycho killer hairstyles and all.

    Breakthrough Role: Before we get into his crossover to the U.S., Bardem first got major notoriety in his homeland for "Jamón,

  • Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum in '22 Jump Street'

    Forget everything you know or want to know about "22 Jump Street," it's time to manage expectations. Don't think about whether the upcoming sequel to 2012's hit comedy will be as good or better than the first. Don't think about which A-list actors may or may not make cameos. Don't think about whether Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill's bromance will be better than ever, etc. Why are we telling you this? We've been instructed to do so.

    "We are here to lower expectations," co-director Phil Lord revealed when we visited the New Orleans set last fall. "You need to go back and write all about how you're not really sure, you think it may not be that good."

    Co-director Chris Miller agreed and added that their secret to success is to set themselves up for failure.

    "All of everything we've ever done has been riding on low expectations," said Miller. "'Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs?' A terrible idea. Doing '21 Jump Street' as a movie is a terrible idea. 'The Lego Movie' sounds like a terrible

  • Let's play a little word association. If we say "Robin Williams," chances are the go-to adjective you come up with is a synonym for "manic": excitable, animated, kinetic, hyperactive, or crazy — which is even in the title of his TV series. But "angry"? Not likely. Though that might soon change.

    Williams gets to be both furious and fast in the trailer premiere for "The Angriest Man in Brooklyn," the upcoming comedy from director Phil Alden Robinson ("Field of Dreams," "Sneakers"). In the film, Williams plays against type as Henry Altmann, a Brooklynite whose corrosive attitude has alienated him from his wife, brother, son, and friends. After a car wreck puts him in the hospital, his young doctor, Sharon Gill (Mila Kunis), discovers he has a brain aneurism. With Henry berating her, Dr. Gill snaps and tells him he only has 90 minutes to live. So he runs off in a panicked attempt to make things right with his family before time runs out.

  • Kate Winslet: Nude Titanic painting still haunts me (exclusive)

    The actress responds to fans’ obsession with the naked sketch from her 1997 hit film.

    by Tom Butler

     

    Kate Winslet has admitted that the nude drawing of her in "Titanic" haunts her to this day.

    After Leonardo Di Caprio’s Jack painted Kate Winslet’s Rose “like one of his French girls” back in 1997 for "Titanic," the nude drawing has endured thanks in part to DVD, video, and of course the Internet.

    A keen fan was seen handing Winslet a copy of the sketch at the UK premiere of her new film "Divergent," so we just had to ask her whether she'd signed it or kept it for her drawing room.

    “I don’t sign that [picture]. It feels very uncomfortable. Why would you do that?” Winslet tells us in our video above. “People ask me to sign that [picture] a lot.”

    “There’s a photo of it as well that someone has lifted from a still of the film, and that photo gets passed around too. I’m like 'No! I didn’t mean for it to be a photograph that I would end up seeing still 17 years later.'"

    “It’s still haunting me. It’s quite funny really.”

  • Where's Superman when you need him? As anyone who's seen "Gravity" can tell you, Sandra Bullock and George Clooney really could have used the Man of Steel's help during their big space crisis.

    Thankfully for them, filmmaker Krishna Bala Shenoi has remixed the opening to "Gravity" with footage from 1987's "Superman IV: The Quest for Peace." The result is a hilarious alternate opening scene that puts an entirely new spin on things. As it turns out, Superman (Christopher Reeve) may have been just as responsible for causing the space disaster as he was for the eventual rescue.

    Shenoi, an acclaimed 20-year-old writer and filmmaker from Bangalore, India, has been posting a lot of his clever videos online. His other work includes this wonderful animated tribute to legendary filmmaker Steven Spielberg.

    Shenoi's version certainly means "Gravity" would be a much shorter movie. Just imagine how many other cinematic crises could be solved if only Superman happened to be hanging around!

  • We've got the exclusive trailer debut of the new comedy "Dr. Cabbie," presented and co-produced by Bollywood superstar Salman Khan.

    Set in Toronto, "Dr. Cabbie" follows Deepak (Vinay Virmani), a young doctor who emigrates from India to Canada only to be denied work as a medical professional. Deepak ends up driving a taxi to get by, but soon converts his cab into a mobile clinic in order to help people.

    The movie aso features "The Big Bang Theory" star Kunal Nayyar in his first major film role. Nayyar plays a local cabbie who shows Virmani's Deepak the ropes.

    A truly international production, "Dr. Cabbie" was shot in Toronto, directed by Quebec filmmaker Jean-François Pouliot ("La Grande Séduction"), and co-produced by Salman Khan's India-based Being Human Productions. The film also stars American actress Adrianne Palicki ("G.I. Joe: Retaliation") and Canuck Stephen McHattie ("Watchmen").

    "Dr. Cabbie" arrives in theatres on Sept. 19.

  • You've seen some glimpses of Angelina Jolie as "Maleficent" — the live-action revamp of the "Sleeping Beauty" tale — but you haven't gotten the full picture yet.

    In this exclusive new banner, you see the pointy-cheeked Oscar winner at the center of a mystical land that ranges from light to dark. To Jolie's left, there's Elle Fanning as Princess Aurora, the girl cursed to prick her finger on her 16th birthday and fall into a "sleep-like death." And you see Maleficent's pet raven, Diaval, who can change into a human form (played by Sam Reilly), not to mention a fire-breathing dragon.
