Below are a couple new clips from This Is It, the Michael Jackson tribute film that arrives in theaters next week for a 2-week limited run that we're sure, based on pre-ordered tickets alone, will get extended. The first clip is a featurette that gives us a glimpse of just how huge this concert tour was going to be and how meticulous the preparation had to be to pull it all off.
Choreographer-turned-director Adam Shankman has been tapped to co-produce this year's Oscar telecast. The Hairspray director and So You Think You Can Dance judge will take the reins with movie executive Bill Mechanic. A fact my brosefs and I are way stoked about. I can imagine it now. A long game of touch football in the park, then a nice walk in the crisp winter air, quick stop-off for some tapas and then me and the bros will all curl up and see how the Shank-Man can butch up the Academy Awards. I mean, did you see Zac Efron's Pool Party? That was a machismo fiesta. Reminded me of my fraternity days. (Variety)

Finally the long national wait for the actually good Avatar trailer is over. Coming Soon (tee-hee) reports that a 3 minute and 30 second trailer featuring a hefty amount of story will premiere in theaters this Friday. No word yet on which film it will be attached to but this is said to be THE trailer. The most epic, shart-inducing, nipple-tingling visual feat ever rendered. The film is set to open in less than two months so expect a huge marketing push for this one. In other words, it's about to get Avatarded in here.Shut-ins and bubble people sadly will have to wait until Thursday, October 29th to view the trailer online. Damn! That's not nearly enough time to hone and perfect the intricacies of my CCH Pounder Halloween costume.
Every year, Nerdcore releases a special calendar paying tribute to pop culture with sexy pinup girls. The 2010 Calendar, currently available for pre-order, is a bloody, beautiful homage to horror flicks, and it's a perfectly timed Halloween gift for any discerning masturbator of the macabre friend you may have. According to Nerdcore, "no genre has been more synonymous with nerds and nudity than horror," and we couldn't agree more. Their 4th annual calendar features cover model Jana Jordan getting paranormal with a TV set, sultry scream queen Justine Joli in the most vintage of psychotic shower scenes, Bobbi Starr sewn together (literally) in a more naked version of Frankenstein, as well as Aria Giovanni, Kayla Jane Danger, Karlie Montana, Mosh, and Zoli Suicide getting their scream on. Check out some of the hot, nearly NSFW photos after the jump. Can you guess all the horror movies to which the photos pay tribute? Does it really even matter?

Where the Wild Things Are arrived this past weekend, and it pretty much turned out to be a therapy session with a bunch of clinically depressed forty-somethings dressed like furries. So when we heard that "We Were Once a Fairytale," the Spike Jonze-directed film starring Kanye West, hit the Web today, it was the news equivalent of a Xanax. We have the 11-minute piece here, minus the first minute or so. Spoiler alert: it's effing weird.
The Weinstein Company has rounded up all the major players for its upcoming Scream sequel. Writer Kevin Williamson, stars Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox-Arquette, David Arquette, and now according to Cinema Blend, director Wes Craven are all set to return to Scream 4. Which I'm happy isn't titled Scre4m and isn't planned to be a gimmicky 3D movie. Though production isn't set to begin for another six months, so give them time. Give them time.
For a company with a treasure trove of box office booty thanks to movie pirates, Disney sure is taking a hard stance against the online Captain Jack Sparrows of the world. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Walt Disney Co. chief executive Bob Iger believes technology companies are coming out smelling like roses in the PR war… at the expense of Hollywood. The result? Policing illegal activity online will get even more difficult than it already is:
Drew Struzan is one of the most influential movie poster artists to ever adapt motion pictures into a one-sheet piece of paper and still manage to embody everything the flick is about. He's worked on posters for Indiana Jones, Star Wars, and Harry and the Hendersons, just to name a few. A complete list of his work can be seen on his gallery page, but we've chosen our 25 favorite here, most of which are without the movie's title. Can you name all the films?

Where the Wild Things Are opens this weekend, and a lot of early reviews are saying that the film is too mature for young audiences… that they've somehow made a children's story into an adult film, thereby alienating the intended audience.Of course, none of this would be a problem if we just exposed our children to R-Rated topics at an early age. We suggest Hollywood partner with children's book publishers to help introduce kids to R-Rated fare as early as the kids can read. Here's our list of required reading:
Bill Murray has once again made it clear that he's not interested in doing a third Ghostbusters film just yet. Is he the sequel's greatest adversary or greatest champion? On paper he may come off as grumpy and vile as a Digg commenter but he truly has the film's best interest at heart. "There's still no script," he tells Digital Spy. "It's just a bunch of talk. It's just a wish list for someone." And there certainly has been a bunch of talk lately. Talk from Harold Ramis, talk from Dan Akroyd, and talk from Ivan Reitman. All of whom, are chomping at the bit to get this picture made. "I'm not going to make one [movie] just to make another one. We made a second one, and it was okay, but it wasn't as good as the first one." In all fairness, Garfield: A Tale of Two Kitties did far surpass its predecessor.

The success of Taken has prompted Hollywood to churn out more father-turned-Terminator flicks. In the funny accent tour-de-force Edge of Darkness, Mel Gibson stars as a Boston detective searching for answers in the murder of his daughter. Was she killed in an attempt on his life or does the reason behind her assassination go much deeper? Mel intends to find out by smashing every window, door, and face in Suffolk County. We haven't seen Mel this riled up since he wanted his son back in Ransom. Written by William Monahan (The Departed) and directed by Martin Campbell (Casino Royale), it seems to have a hint of Mel's fingerprints on it as well. "Well you had better decide if you're hanging on the cross or banging in the nails." I knew he couldn't go 2:30 seconds without holy rolling! (Yahoo)
If you watched old school WWF, "The Super Mario Bros. Super Show" or a Cyndi Lauper music video from the 1980s, then you've experienced the force of nature that was Captain Lou Albano. WWE issued a statement announcing that Captain Lou passed away today at the age of 76. No cause of death has been cited at the time of this post. You will be missed, Captain Lou.

Just yesterday, The Hollywood Reporter announced that super-agency CAA had signed Weekly World News to its impressive roster of clients. The theory was that the now-defunct fake tabloid publication has a bevy of untapped properties, of which poster boy "Bat Boy" is just one… and that its characters could "give Marvel a run for its money." That remains to be seen. But will Hollywood greet Weekly World News's freak show with a hearty handshake (artist's rendering above)? Or will WWN be booted out of Tinseltown's glitzy gates faster than you can say "We're stripping Bat Boy of his co-EP credit…"? So, WWN, we're going to do you a favor. Here are our suggestions for spinning the raw materials you already have into box office GOLD!
Sylvester Stallone's throwback to gritty, non-CGI action, The Expendables, just premiered its trailer. In it you see ample amounts of gunfire, explosions, waterboarding, and dissing of the Chinese guy.
After about a minute of watching the above clip, entitled "The Golden Age of Video" by Ricardo Autobahn, I had already lost count of all the movie and TV shows clips that went into its making. It's impressive stuff. And for the most part, these are some pretty classic lines that Autobahn picked. To place them together in a rhyme scheme and all that… well… hell that's called poetry, class.

You're a big fan of some Hollywood celebrity. You want to learn more about their private lives. And Us Weekly's "Stars: They're just like us!" section stopped being riveting after you found out Christian Slater drinks Starbucks. You want to learn the dirt… the real dirt… but you don't want to have to root through the celeb's trash bins for goodies. All that usually gets you is a bunch of hot garbage and a night in jail where hot garbage smell is an aphrodisiac for your cell mates. Well, thanks to the internet, you can now just hack into her Netflix account. After all, sometimes a DVD rental queue is much more telling than a heap of old groceries, anyway.
