11/6/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Casper Van Dien isn't very good at keeping secrets, or ... he's playing a really cruel joke on "Starship Troopers" fans who are going crazy about the recently-announced reboot.

We asked the original Johnny Rico at LAX what he thought about his 1997 cult classic being reprieved ... and his answer could trigger an epic nerd freak-out.

Sylvester Stallone & Demi Lovato Here's How to Box Like a Champ ... in Hollywood, Anyway

11/3/2016 3:06 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Before Demi Lovato took down Rocky Balboa in a sparring match, she got lessons on how to take down Rocky ... from Rocky. 

Sylvester Stallone shared a clip of them practicing a jab sequence -- exactly like Sly does when he's shooting a movie. He gave Demi a handful of cues and choreography for their boxing skit.

Maybe our suggestion Demi could be a good fit for the "Creed" sequel wasn't that far off. Chick's fight game is focused, for sure. 

Demi Lovato & Sly Stallone Body Say Jab, Jab!!

11/2/2016 2:02 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Demi Lovato's got hands of stone ... just ask Sylvester Stallone.

Demi and Sly strapped on the gloves Wednesday at Jay Glazer's Unbreakable gym on the Sunset Strip -- and she obviously has some ring experience ... of the Hollywood variety, at least.

Rocky was having fun, although he claims he slipped when he hit the mat. Decide for yourself.

BTW, the "Creed" sequel is slated for November, 2017. Get DL a script, stat!

Just sayin' ...

Armie Hammer 'Birth of a Nation' Fan Got Screwed ... Feels Like Racism

11/2/2016 7:36 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

'Birth of a Nation' star Armie Hammer smells a rat -- a racist one -- when it comes to the treatment one moviegoer claims he got when he tried to buy a ticket for the flick.

Armie told us he saw the Facebook video posted by a guy in Delaware -- he claims the box office at a Regal Cinema told him 'Birth' was sold-out, but then he went inside and found the theater almost completely empty.

As we first reported ... Regal denies any wrongdoing or racism -- but Armie's not totally convinced, and says he would've flipped out way more than this guy did. 

Ron Howard I Do NOT Have a Beautiful Mind For Classic Movie Lines

10/31/2016 8:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Making movies is Ron Howard's thing but waiting in line for 'em -- or remembering much about 'em -- is definitely NOT.

We caught up with the awesome director in NYC, and considering he's made about 100 flicks ... he must remember all the lines to at least one classic movie, right?

Watch this, Ron's memory is nowhere as good as his movies -- and you probably shouldn't get him started on assigned seats in theaters. But we did.

Wanna (possibly) win some money this weekend??? Pay attention ... 

The guy who's handicapping prowess inspired the movie "Two For The Money" is about to give you free cash (maybe) ... by revealing the biggest LOCKS of the NFL gambling weekend.

TMZ Sports spoke with Brandon Lang ... Matthew McConaughey played him in 'TFTM' ... and asked him -- for you guys of course, not for us -- to reveal the safest bets for this NFL weekend.

PAY CLOSE ATTENTION -- Brandon breaks it down good ... and even though we really don't know what the hell he's talking about ... we're gonna go ahead and go with his picks anyway.

Just for fun ... not, like, for actual money ... just for laughs ... and hopefully money.

'Birth of a Nation' Theater Accused of Lying to Kill Ticket Sales ... But Denies Racism

10/28/2016 1:13 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1028-birth-of-a-nation-regal-cinemas-01Regal Cinemas says it's not on a mission to tank Nate Parker's "The Birth of a Nation" ... despite a viral video purportedly catching one theater lying about tickets being sold-out. 

Moviegoer Devon Walls claims staff at a Regal Cinemas in Delaware steered him away from buying tickets by telling him the theater was sold-out, and instead encouraging him to see "The Accountant." In a video he posted, Walls strongly suggests the move was racially motivated because he found out the 'Birth' theater was almost empty.

A rep for Regal denies it was racism, and told us the theater was "adjusting films and auditoriums to meet consumer demand." It's unclear what that means exactly, but the theater manager did tell Walls they'd added a showing of 'Birth' at the last minute to handle demand -- and that's the theater he saw nearly empty.

Mind you, Walls says he was never told about that added screening.  

Regal brass insists the race of the filmmaker, actors and the film's subject matter had "absolutely no bearing on the decision."  

'Star Wars' Darth Maul Actor Alleged 'Menace' At Fan Convention

10/28/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1027-ray-park-instagram-02The guy who played Darth Maul in "Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace" is under investigation for allegedly assaulting a woman ... TMZ has learned.

Raymond Park was a panelist at Super Megafest Comic-con in Massachusetts last weekend, and law enforcement sources tell us they got a 911 call early Sunday reporting an assault at his hotel. Park's rep says cops woke the actor in his room, and spoke to him about claims he struck a woman.

Park was questioned, but never detained or arrested. His rep says Park was partying with fans Saturday night at his hotel bar, but insists he never assaulted anyone. Witnesses tell us he seemed kinda wasted while throwing darts, but no one saw anything violent.

For what it's worth, Park was back at the convention Sunday. Cops say their investigation is still ongoing.

Nicholas says he's already got his ticket -- and he's already thrown out a first pitch at a Cubs game this season -- so, he's perfectly qualified to bring the heat at Wrigley.
