Thanks to Dead Island, there will be a movie based on a commercial for a video game, which tops the list of “Retarded Things To Option,” blowing past the former #1: “Twitter Account.”

If you ever wondered what David Blaine would be like if he used his powers of illusionating for evil, instead of dicking around in water tanks, then you’re gonna love ‘Now You See Me.’

Phillip Noyce Is The Helmer/Director Of ‘Hunter/Killer’
Thursday, February 17 by

Noyce gave up the chance to direct the sequel to ‘Salt’ and chose this submarine movie instead. I guess once you know who Salt is, nothing else about that film really matters.

Wednesday, February 16 by

You’d think a name like that would put his headshot and resume in the “???” pile, but it turns out McNairy (‘Art School Confidential’) is a hot name right now.

Scorsese To Direct ‘Silence’, ‘Wolf Of Wall Street’ Rumors Just White Noise
Wednesday, February 16 by

As we thought, the rumors about Scorsese directing ‘Wolf Of Wall Street’ this summer were as reliable as a Bernie Madoff. “Alright then, wiseguy. What is his next project?”

Guy Ritchie NOT Offered ’300′ Sequel, Zack Snyder And His Owl Army NOT Furious

Richard Kelly To Direct A Less Batsh*t Crazy Movie
Wednesday, February 16 by

Kelly will take on a more straightforward narrative with his new film ‘Corpus Christi’, though the plot description makes me wonder if deviations into “Fluid Karma” territory are inevitable.

Rumor Reliable As Economy: Scorsese and DiCaprio Shooting ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ This Summer?
Wednesday, February 16 by

This news is as suspicious as a check signed by Frank Abagnale Jr. However, it’s juicier than a bottle of red prison wine, so we’re letting you know about it. Proceed with caution.

Jackie Chan To Release 100th Movie, Will Break 100 Bones To Celebrate

I think I might see ’1911′ just to support a man who’s been killing himself for the world’s enjoyment since 1964.

Radcliffe is going full-on, boring old muggle in one of his new post-Harry Potter roles.

IFC’s ‘Portlandia’ Renewed For 2nd Season, Anti-Hipster Comedy Parade Continues

All you have to know is that it’s indie and I liked it before anyone else did.

Good Movie Alert: Paul Walker To Star In Fred Durst’s ‘Pawn Shop Chronicles’
Monday, February 14 by

It’s probably not too late for Walker to arrogantly hop into his Subaru WRX STI, drive away and pretend you never agreed to anything.

Marvel nerds assemble… in New Mexico.

DJ Caruso May Direct ‘Preacher’, Shia LaBeouf Would Play Every Role
Monday, February 14 by

The coupling of Caruso and the smart, deep story of ‘Preacher’ sounds as unnatural as sex between an angel and a demon.

Tim Burton Reveals (The Plot Of) His ‘Frankenweenie’
Monday, February 14 by

It’s a stop-motion animated (good) story that Burton made up (very good) about a well-meaning boy who turns his dog into a monster.

Like a ripped, shirtless teen transforming into a vampire after a bite, the movie industry has been transformed into something awful by ‘Twilight.’

Morgan Spurlock Developing HBO Political Drama Between Burgers
Friday, February 11 by

Based on the director’s recent work, I’m guessing the Texas-based drama a lot of product placement for Texaco and maybe propane companies.

John Lasseter Is Strangely Miscast As “John Lassetire” In ‘Cars 2′
Friday, February 11 by

The director cameos as a car named John Lassetire, which I’m told is a clever pun, but I don’t get it at all. What’s a “Lassetire?” It’s like solving the DaVinci Code, you guys.
