A site called spoilertv.com has photos up from the first day of Iron Man 2's shoot. Here's one. You can see a few more after the jump, including Don Cheadle as Rhodes, posing with a cell phone like he's the new spokesmodel for Verizon.
Tonight Spike TV premieres their gory new series Deadliest Warrior. This is the show for you if your inner monologue consists of hounding questions like, 'Who would win in a fight — a Viking or a ninja?' The program brings in the experts to hypothesize the outcomes of these ultimate grudge matches. Personally, my money's on the Viking. Fights this season consist of Apache vs. Roman, Green Beret vs. Spetnaz, Yakuza vs. Mafia, Lumberjack vs. Bigfoot, Giant Donkey vs. Killer Whale, Bill Cosby vs. Swarm of Bats, Cowboy vs. Nessie, Kitten vs. Roomba, Rage vs. Machine, and Mike Tyson vs. Horse.

It's midnight baby, and Moss, Almeida and their team of FBI agents are stuck in a sticky situation, cornered by Hodges and his goons. A truck pulls up and out steps Jonas himself, "I want you off my property." He starts yelling at them and denies any such bioweapon on the grounds of StarkWood. "You've got 5 minutes to get you and your helicopters out of here." Renee was on the other line listening to Hodges' rant, and she runs over to Bauer for some advice.He makes a call to Doug Knowles, a higher up employee of StarkWood that he knows might be willing to cooperate. He calls him up. "Things are out of control," says Knowles. He agrees too help them find the weapons might be."Lets show our guests the door," Hodges slimily says to his goon. Bauer gets on line with Larry Moss and tells him that they need to create a diversion so Tony can escape and find the true location of the weapon. Moss hangs up, walks over punches and punches a testy Seton, giving some time for Tony to escape while grabbing a utility bag from one the FBI agents. While exploring StarkWood, he meets up with Doug Knowles.

The Red-Band trailer for CherryBomb, the new film starring Harry Potter mainstay Rupert Grint, has hit the 'nets. While the Potter films have gotten darker with each installment, this film kind of makes the whole Hogwarts experience look like Teletubbies. Check out the trailer after the jump. It's like a two-minute long ad for smoking cut to really cool Brit-Rock music. If the Teletubbies smoked and partied to cool Brit-Rock music they'd make Barney look like Blue's Clues.
In an interview with MTV News, BOOM-bastic Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen director Michael Bay expressed his distaste for Arcee – a female autobot in the upcoming film – and then proceeded to coldly explain his hatred was enough to murder her. You may remember Arcee from the animated Transformers: The Movie, where she transformed into a pink futuristic car. In Fallen, she is represented as a pink motorcycle. A very dead pink motorcycle.Watch Michael Bay's chillingly self-satisfied confession to the grizzly murder after the jump.[via io9.com]
Today, the L.A. Times' Big Picture posted an article about the MPAA's fear of sex in movies, and their slapping of the relatively tame trailer for the R-Rated documentary Naked Ambition with a "Red-Band" honorific. The article makes a great point about the MPAA's skewed view of objectionable content in films. And you can read that article at The Big Picture. If you came to see a trailer for a documentary about porn, then look no further than the jump. You'll also find some bonus stills!
The Hollywood Reporter announced today that an unfinished cut of When we Were Beautiful, the new Phil Griffin documentary about Bon Jovi, will screen at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 29th (and a couple more times during the fest). Read more about the film after the jump.
Warner brothers has started to air three new spots for Terminator Salvation. Check out the first below, and then the other two after the jump. I haven't seen any red flags yet. Could this be McG's finest hour? Actually I think it already is based on the accumulated four minutes of trailer and promo footage that's out there.
Welcome back from reality ladies and gentlemen, the Dillon Panthers and Friday Night Lights went back to basics this week, and reclaimed their crown for the best television series on the air right now. This last episode was a return to greatness for our beloved Panthers. Our return to the State finals tied everything together; it was Matt, Landry, and Riggins’ last game and everybody left it all on the field. Tyra, after many rewrites, finished her application essay for college, and her recent beau Landry finally played meaningful football, in the finals at that, albeit on special teams. Even though Lyla reconnected with Buddy, all was not well in the realm of family matters. The McCoys and the Taylors were at odds, because the Taylors were obligated to report them to Child Protective Services on account of their fight after the semifinal game. On top of this conflict, the Saracens were divided over Matt’s future as well; his grandmother was preventing him from going to Chicago for school, while his mother, Tami and Julie were encouraging him to pursue it further.
And…we’re back. Walt sits dreamily in a cancer clinic, life moves around him. His doctor says, ‘cautious optimism’. His doctor though wonders about Walt and Skyler’s relationship. Looks like we’re in line for some more husband and wife drama. Meanwhile business at the police office is slow for Hank. Apparently Hank suspects that Heisenberg, a.k.a. Walt is the next up and comer in the business. But Hank laments, that perhaps he’s is only an urban legend. There’s good news and bad news for Hank coming next. First he gets a sweet promotion to a position in El Paso, TX. But as he rides the elevator, he gets what appears to be a heart attack. But by the time he makes it to the bottom, he has recovered. For the first time, we a see a weakness in Hank who apparently is affected by anxiety attacks. Finally Jesse makes his grand entrance into the episode. He pulls the Methmobile into Clovis’ scrap yard and pays the big dumb animal for the towing, storage and the broken porta-potty.
Sarah and her gang rescue Savannah from certain doom, but her salvation comes at a high price. John Henry tries to learn more about his brother, and Sarah makes negotiations with Ellison to meet with Weaver. Everybody Dies For MeSarah stands above a series of headstones dated 1984 with tears in her eyes. Derek approaches.“I don’t know which one is his,” she says over her shoulder.“It doesn’t matter. Grass, trees… could be worse,” he offers. They’re talking about Kyle. Derek confronts Sarah about not showing up to meet in the desert. John had called to tell Derek and Cameron that they were actually staying at Charlie’s place. Derek wants to know why Sarah lied about meeting up with them. Sarah responds by twisting the thorn in Derek’s side and explaining that he keeps too many secrets for her taste. She’s obviously referring to Jessie, and how by keeping her a secret, Derek endangered them all.John walks up and Derek says “I’m sorry about Charlie.”
Variety reports that a Fox News blogger has been fired due to his review of a pirated copy of XMen Origins: Wolverine. 20th Century Fox, the film's studio, called for the dismissal because viewing pirated material is a violation of copyrights. Since Fox News and the studio are essentially the same company, the blogger broke one of life's cardinal rules: Never bite the hand that feeds you.Another one of life's rules: No matter how friendly the man in the clownsuit seems, do not get into his van.Here is some more morning news and announcements.Rick Moranis ain't 'fraid of no ghosts!

WHERE HAVE I BEEN? By Gene Hackman This morning I was sorting through some mail that had piled up and I came across a letter from a fan. In the letter, she asked a question that I’ve been getting a lot from various people. "Where have you been, Gene Hackman?" By now you’ve probably noticed my recent absence from movies and I guess that I owe you all an explanation. I wish that I could say that I’ve decided to spend my time painting or writing historical fiction. Or I wish that I could tell you that I’ve had it with the politics of Hollywood and have decided to return to my theater roots. But none of that is true. Fact of the matter is I’ve just been playing a lot of Xbox 360.
We decided not to report on the leaked Wolverine workprint because, well, any coverage would perpetuate thievery. But we couldn't resist posting this in the end. Enjoy. I'm really impressed with the makeup in this one. Definitely trumps X3.
Courtesy of Latino Review, we have a new image from McG's Terminator: Salvation. It's of Helena Bonham Carter's character named "Serena" (possibly a nod to the last Terminator flick). If you don't want to know what's behind the black bars, don't click the above image. But if you're into the Terminator mythology, you're probably going to think it's cool. If you're just a pervy voyeur, you're probably going to be disappointed… unless… Wait! Must refrain from joke about sex with robots… gah! I think I just gave it away. Well, you just…

This afternoon, BloodyDisgusting broke the news that actor Jackie Earle Haley is in final talks to play Freddy Krueger in Sam Bayer's update of A Nightmare on Elm Street, and that we can expect an official announcement as early as next week. (Shooting begins at the end of this month in Chicago.) This is some inspired casting. Haley has proven himself time and again in the twisted character roles. No matter what camp you fall into with Watchmen, you can't deny Haley as Rorschach was the best part about the film. And his turn as Ronnie the pedophile in Little Children is nothing short of brilliant. Every time I do my impression of Ronnie masturbating in the car, my girlfriend cries. So that should count for something. Watch that clip after the jump! Fast forward to 4:58 if you can't wait until the masturbating part. (How often has that sentence been bandied about on the 'nets?
You came. You saw. You read the rules this time. The winner of our Alien Trespass Giveaway's GRAND PRIZE – the signed set of Alien Trespass lobby cards – is the reader known as "CCAP." Your alternate tagline for AT read:"She was a beautiful woman with a past. He was a giant red cyclops from Galaxy Abell 1835 IR1916. She thought her heart was closed for business . . ."Your entry was eloquent, intriguing, and concise. Never underestimate concise-iness. And it seemed like you tried. And then there's the second prize, which goes to "Dr. Michael Hfuhruhurr," who just plain made us laugh (cruel as those laughs may have been):"This summer, get ready to watch Robert Patrick in…..a movie."We'll be contacting you both via email to arrange your pirze shipment! Be sure to see Alien Trespass, which opens this weekend. As Dr. H said, it's got Robert Patrick in it.
You may remember actor Jesse Eisenberg, he’s quite the hot-shot young actor in a circle of “I play disillusioned youngsters wanting to be Holden Caufield” roles. Go down the list….
We’ve all been there. Minding our own business, wolfing down our Raisinets and gulping down our 50 oz. sodas before the previews even begin. Bladders be damned. Then the curtains go up, the lights go down, and you’re left alone in hopes of seeing Olga Kurylenko toting a machine gun and posing in front of an explosion. (You read it in a review somewhere.)But no, there are vermin afoot in the theater. And they have plans against you and Olga, plans that involve loudly smacking Sour Patch Kids or forgetting to turn off their cell phone after the umpteenth on-screen reminder. They come in a wide variety, but there's one thing in common: nothing would be more satisfying than standing up and dumping your soda all over their head (what's left of it, anyway). Like the picture says, why not?Screenjunkies presents… THE 9 MOST OBNOXIOUS MOVIE WATCHERS!9. THE FREQUENT URINATORS
The upcoming May issue of Vanity fair features some new portraits of the Inglourious Basterds cast, in "glourious" makeup and wardrobe from Tarantino's WWII opus. Here's one of Ms. Diane Kruger as her character, the smoking German screen actress Bridget von Hammersmark. I can't tell if she's trying to read your mind in the photo or if she's feeling an oncoming low-grade migraine. Here are some more photos. Click on the thumbs to enlarge, soldier!
60 MINUTES' ANDY ROONEY REVIEWS FAST & FURIOUSBy Andy Rooney
Marisa Tomei took her stripper role pretty seriously in The Wrestler and ended up with a bunch of award nominations. Unfortunately for Jessica Biel, who usually makes good decisions, her turn around the silver pole is going to start and finish on DVD. Powder Blue, the new film from Timothy Linh Bui (who last directed Green Dragon with Patrick Swayze and Forrest Whitaker… eight years ago) is coming out soon, and "Access Hollywood" is trying their best to spin it as high art. But it comes off pretty clumsily, like that time a stripper in Vancouver accidentally kicked me in the face as I happened to be passing the stage during her big finish. There's nothing worse than ending a choreographed seduction with an apology. Hopefully no one will be apologizing for Powder Blue. [Courtesy of The Playlist] Here's the rest of the news.

(click image to enlarge) Magnolia Pictures has just released the new poster for Soderbergh's The Girlfriend Experience, starring adult film star Sasha Grey in her mainstream film debut. It's a pretty stunning poster if I do say so myself. Check out the synopsis of the film and much more stunning – albeit a tad less tasteful – photos of Sasha after the jump.

On April 10th, Observe and Report opens, and will be the second mall cop movie released within a few months. We're not saying it's a knockoff of Paul Blart at all. But it's another example of the Hollywood tradition for competing studios to release two eerily familiar movies right around the same time of year. Some say both films benefit from the timing. Some say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. You be the judge of which flicks deserve the compliment.
