Homemade War Machine Costume Must Drive the Ladies Wild
Monday, January 4 by

An overzealous neeerrrddddd!!!! fan spent significant hours to create a costume replica of Iron Man 2's War Machine (compare to trailer here). Anthony Le has hand-crafted a costume so impressive that even director Jon Favreau has given him props. Accolades, not actual movie props. He'll have to build replicas of those himself if he wants them.Much like the fan-made transforming Bumblebee costume, this is pretty cool and must have taken a lot to put together. So nobody mention to this guy that he could have just painted an Iron Man costume silver. Much like Tony Stark, I don't think his heart could take the strain. (Cinematical)

‘Avatar’ Earns Over $1 Billion Dollars Worldwide
Monday, January 4 by

"I duddits!!"We warned you that it would take over the world but you but you didn't listen. Had you shuttered up your windows, none of us would be in this mess. James Cameron's Avatar dominated the box office for a third weekend in a row, easily outpacing every other release and all of Tiger Woods' mistresses combined. And on a global level, the film has passed the $1 billion mark. Think of how many of these hats that kind of money can buy.There are only four other films in the billion dollar club. They are Cameron's own  Titanic ($1.843 billion), The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King ($1.119 billion), Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest ($1.066 billion), and The Dark Knight ($1.001 billion). With a $1.022 billion take after only 21 days, expect Avatar to give Titanic a run for its money.With this surge of wealth, you can also expect James Cameron to spend the next ten years developing a new technology in order to make it rain more realistically on them hoes.

‘Bitch Slap’ Actress America Olivo
Monday, January 4 by

America Olivo has appeared in TV shows and stuff, but her most memorable sequence thus far has to be the camping tent sex scene in the Friday the 13th remake. That movie sucks serious balls, but all the naked ladies are quite fantastic.A word from America: "I'm a fan of anything my mother does."I'M a fan of anything your mother does. Like me. OH SNAP! I hope that snide comment doesn't hurt our chances of hooking up.Judging by the pics after the jump, America's mother must be hot.

‘The Thing’ Prequel to Begin Filming Unnecessarily in March
Monday, January 4 by

Production Weekly is reporting that the long-gestating prequel to John Carpenter's The Thing will begin filming in two months. Commercial director Matthijs van Heijningen Jr. (thanks for the easy to spell name, Dad) will helm the alien vs human thriller, which is shooting in Toronto from March to June. The script, written by Ronald D. Moore (Battlestar Galactica) and Eric Heissere (A Nightmare On Elm Street), tells the story of the doomed Norwegian camp that is found tattered and decimated in the original. There's no word yet on casting or more importantly on who will be handling the special effects. Here's hoping that the producers are respectful to the original and don't go with someone like Channing Tatum. Dude's acting is whatever and his visual effects portfolio is WEAK. (Production Weekly)

‘Independence Day’ Live on Stage!
Sunday, January 3 by

If you hate special effects and love on-stage, low-budget renditions of blockbuster action movies than the Old Murder House Mystery Theater could be right up your alley. The troupe, an off-shoot of the War Room Collective, a group of filmmakers from the Savannah College of Art and Design, has performed stage productions of Jurassic Park and The Lion King/Predator, and now they've brought Roland Emmerich's "masterpiece" Independence Day to Off-Broadway. Check out the stripped-down, raw action and effects after the jump. Welcome to earth.

Watch Denzel Kick Some Ass in ‘Book of Eli’ Fight Training Video
Thursday, December 31 by

To make the hardcore fight sequences in The Book of Eli look as realistic and kick-ass as possible, Denzel Washington worked with famed fight choreographer Jeff Imada. Jeff also worked on a little fighting movie called Fight Club. He did Fight Club, people. The movie about fighting! Suffice it to say The Book of Eli will garner some amazing fight sequences, and Denzel takes them on all by himself. When you absolutely positively have to kill every motherf*cker in the room, accept no substitutions.  Check out the fight training video after the jump. The Book of Eli resurrects itself in theaters January 15th, 2010. 

Patrick Stewart and Peter Jackson Have Been Knighted
Thursday, December 31 by

"Thank you for this grand honour."Patrick Stewart no longer has to pretend to be a knight to pick up chicks. Queen Elizabeth II has bestowed knighthood upon the Star Trek / X-Men actor for his Excellence in Being British (or something like that) on her New Year honors list. Also knighted, but on a seperate New Zealand list, was LOTR and King Kong director Peter Jackson.I sincerely hope that Stewart and Jackson do not take this honor lightly. You never know when the Queen may call you to fight. If you had paid attention during Reign of Fire, you'd know that dragon attacks can happen at any time. (NBC)

Mila Kunis Burns Her Itchy, No Good ‘Book Of Eli’ Clothes
Wednesday, December 30 by

In an apparent "F YOU" to Planet Hollywood, Mila Kunis decided to burn her The Book Of Eli wardrobe once production had wrapped. From Kunis: "I kept none of my ensemble from the film. It was so dirty and filthy. In fact I burned it in effigy when we wrapped production." C'mon Mila. It couldn't have been that bad. As we can see from this trailer for the Denzel as Mad Max post apocalyptic thriller, the outfit doesn't seem that bad. It's a flannel, wool vest, and combat boots. A.) You're from the Ukraine, you should be used to that look, and B.) Rosie O'Donnell would pay good money for threads like that. (WENN)

Own the ‘Back to the Future’ DeLorean and Be Awesome
Tuesday, December 29 by

Someone spent a loooooooot of time building a near exact replica of the DeLorean from Back to the Future and now they're hawking it on eBay for you, or someone with more money than you, to purchase. I actually saw this very DeLorean at a car show in Culver City, CA this past Summer, and I have to say it's a pretty amazing contraption. The only downside is it doesn't come equipped with a flux capacitor, arguably the coolest part of the DeLorean in the film, and the interior smells like the remains of Christopher Lloyd's career. That stuff's like cigarette smoke, it just doesn't come out.So far there's been one bid on Doc's DeLorean and it's currently at $59,000.00 with the reserve price unmet. If you choose, you can also purchase the car at the current "Buy It Now" price of $89,000.00.Check out all the stats at the eBay page and see a few more pics of the souped-up DeLorean after the jump.

Jude Law Wants Your Organ in Red Band ‘Repo Men’ Trailer
Tuesday, December 29 by

I've heard of a circumcision, but this is ridiculous! Universal decided to take Repo Men from its shelf of Movies We Don't Want To Release, dust it off, and release it. It tells of a near future when human life spans have been greatly extended by expensive artificial organs created by a company called The Union. When people fail to make their payments for a fancy new liver or other piece of their gut, a team of surgical operatives are sent out to reclaim The Union’s property. The film follows two of these guys, played by Jude Law and Forest Whitaker. (via /Film)  I have trouble suspending my disbelief in regards to Jude Law as an action star and anyone giving Forest Whitaker a license to cut people open when they have no way of knowing what he sees through that one weird eye. Maybe it zooms in on stuff.  Check out the Red Band Repo Men trailer after the jump. Beware, it's not safe for work due to all the blood and Liev Schreiber-ness.

‘Star Trek’ Sequel Officially Starts Getting Started Next Year
Tuesday, December 29 by

Whether Mr. J.J. Abrams likes it or not, Zoe Saldana refuses to keep her pretty little mouth shut about the Star Trek sequel, unofficially titled Star Trek: Uhura's Quest for Spock's Nuts. Yay for all of us! She said Abrams, Alex Kurtzman, and Roberto Orci are all still working on the script, and that they'll probably be going into pre-production around this time next year.It's just pre-production, people. That means they'll start making drawings of how they want the shiny sets and costumes to look. Then once they decide how many whatevers should hang from the whatever, they have to make those whatevers a reality. Someone will probably get injured during construction, which will cause a delay, and during that time J.J. will realize there's a huge plot hole in the script. I expect to see the Star Trek sequel in 2015. (MTV)

These People Died in 2009
Tuesday, December 29 by

People die, and it's very sad, but when you're famous, or even "famous," television networks and award ceremonies put together an in memorium video that reminds everyone that you died, how attractive you were when you were younger, and how you used to work on projects that weren't complete sh*t. Below is a remembrance video that Turner Classic Movies put together that does all those things, and also displays some fantastic Autumn foliage. Are the dead people supposed to be the wind or the leaves? My guess is there's a little bit of them in every one of us. It's comforting to know that Michael Jackson is inside me right now.

Avatar: The Making of the Bootleg

Harold Ramis Plans to Start Shooting ‘Ghostbusters 3′ Next Summer
Monday, December 28 by

Our friends over at Heeb Magazine snagged a nice little interview with director Harold Ramis, and they got some info out of him regarding the progress of Ghostbusters 3:We’ll introduce some new young Ghostbusters, and all the old guys will be in it, too. Think Christopher Lloyd in Back to the Future … GB3 is progressing with plans to shoot next summer and release in 2011 … Oh, and I have two one-of-a-kind Ghostbuster yarmulkes sent by fans. Screw the news about the movie, Ramis has Ghostbuster yarmulkes! I'll be the envy of all my temple.. There have been a lot of rumors lately regarding the development of the latest Ghostbusters film, so let's just hope Ramis isn't talking a big game. I want to see all the people in the top picture do the same dance, but each carrying at least 50 more pounds now.Check out the rest of the interview with Harold Ramis here.

English Doesn’t Help Make Sense of New ‘Inception’ Trailer
Monday, December 28 by

Leo emerges from a basin of amniotic fluid. The new trailer for Inception has hit, and even though this one's in English I still have no idea what that f*ck is going on. Last week we showed you the French version which made a lot more sense in the sense that it was foreign and foreign things are weird. What I gather from this trailer is what we already know about the movie: Leo DiCaprio is entering people's minds and stealing images/thoughts/dreams/wet dreams with a sleek, metallic vibrator. He also likes to spin a dreidel to work through problems. Can I surmise that his character is Jewish? Oh Nolan, why won't you give me more! Oy vey! Check out the new Inception trailer at Apple.  

Spike Lee Refuses to Let Michael Jackson Die in ‘This Is It’ Music Video
Monday, December 28 by

Okay, this better SERIOUSLY be it. Spike Lee edited together old footage of Michael Jackson with some new wide, fast push-in shots to create the final music video for his final song, This Is It. Lee's probably livid (he gets livid a lot) that the director of High School Musical, Kenny Ortega, got to direct the big screen version of M.J.'s farewell, and he wanted to create his own harmonious images of the now months dead superstar. Check out the video below if you still have an interest. (via PerezHilton)

No ‘The A-Team’ Cameo for Mr. T’s Mohawk
Monday, December 28 by

I pity the fool who doesn't offer compensation in the form of Snickers! I realize this is going to shatter your world, but it doesn't look like Mr. T is going to make a cameo appearance in The A-Team picture film. Dwight Schultz, the original "Howling Mad" Murdoch, and Dirk Benedict, the original "Faceman" Peck, are still rumored to possibly grace the screen, but Mr. T has given director Joe Carnahan a mild middle finger.Apparently it's not about the money (or Snickers) either. He simply just doesn't see the point in making such a small appearance (as he won't be on set long enough to stockpile Snickers). Mr. T is content with his life right now and enjoying giving back to the community. Pardon me while a make the universal sign for "jerk me off" with my free hand. I guess he can't take a day off from barking nonsensical orders at the volunteers of Habitat for Humanity to pal around on The A-Team set. Don't worry though, the most you'll miss from his absence is a slight, amused smile and you thinking to yourself, "Hey, that's Mr. T on screen in The A-Team Movie. How amusing." (via LatinoReview)

Redbox Rethinks Posting Photo of Dead Brittany Murphy
Saturday, December 26 by

Allllright, who's playing a trick on the people over at the film Deadline? If this is a publicity stunt, kudos, everyone. Ku-dos. DVD retailer Redbox, after realizing that they're advertising Brittany Murphy dead in a bathtub and she recently died in bathtub, decided to clean up the panic-induced sh*t in their tighty-whities and pull the poster for Deadline. The recall of the image from over 19,000 kiosks nationwide will take 7 to 10 days to complete, and the film's distributor is working on an alternate DVD cover image. They're running on the assumption that Britany Murphy really is dead and not simply trying to push copies of her latest film. It's probably good to error on the side of caution, but if Murphy reemerges from her tomb in a few days, Redbox is going to look awfully silly. (via Cinematical)

‘It’s Complicated’ Actress Lake Bell
Thursday, December 24 by

The only thing I don't like about Lake Bell is her name. Who names their kid after a body of water? Hippies, that's who! River Phoenix's parents did it and look what happened to him. He died outside of a nightclub. Let this be a lesson to all parents: don't go chasing waterfalls. Please stick to the rivers and the lakes that you're used to. Why did I just quote TLC? See Lake taking Meryl Streep's Baldwin in It's Complicated on Christmas Day.A word from Lake: "You have to keep hobbies in L.A. Otherwise, it's sad."Um, hello, Lake. What about being disillusioned? That keeps things constantly happy. And don't you tell me otherwise! See pics of Lake in a lake after the jump. Brilliant!

Kevin Smith’s ‘Cop Out’ Trailer is Missing ‘Dicks’ and Balls
Thursday, December 24 by

  Grooooooaaaaaan. The trailer for Kevin Smith's new "comedy" Cop Out, formerly know as A Couple of Cops, formerly know as A Couple of Dicks (yes! funnier!), has hit, and it's about as amusing as tweezing someone else's pubes. I can't even tell what the movie is about, except that Tracy Morgan's character (I'm guessing a mentally challenged volunteer?) is teamed up with Bruce Willis's character (a "doin' it for the paycheck" grizzled veteran who's simply getting too old for this sh*t?).  Oh Kevin Smith, what has happened to you. I don't doubt that movie making by committee impeded on your ultimate vision for this film, but I honestly don't know if your ultimate vision would have been much better even if you were given free reign. Maybe if Jay and Silent Bob were hanging outside of every convenience store Morgan and Willis will inevitably go in to. After all, you gotta get product placement in their somehow. My ideal sponsors for this film would be Chiquita Bananas and KY Jelly.   Cop Out rips one in theaters on February 2nd, 2010. Check out the trailer after the jump. Or if you'd like to be more entertained, just watch the opening credits of Panic Room. 

Cinema 2009 Retrospective Retrospects Cinema of 2009
Wednesday, December 23 by

Editor Kees van Dijkhuizen has put together a tremendous Cinema 2009 retrospective. He's mashed together an enormous amount of 2009 film clips for his piece, 1 Year, 342 Movies, 12 Months of Production, 7 Minutes. Think of it as a more whimsical Trailer To End All Trailers.From Kees: "2009 proved that innovation is rewarded, and for that reason, I've decided no film should be left behind." For the most part, he's true to his word. The only thing missing from this clip is Nic Cage and his singing iguanas.

‘Alice in Wonderland’ Tea Party Billboard Warrants a No RSVP
Wednesday, December 23 by

 I'm pretty sure that if I attended this tea party I would be the biscuit this motley crew served their LSD on. Who is the Mad Hatter's interior designer anyway? You can't mix multi-colored tablecloths and then just place a caterpillar on a giant mushroom in the foyer. It ruins the whole flow of the space!This new art proves to be just as trippy as the most recent trailer, and I'm not sure if that's a good or a bad thing. I still haven't decided if I'm excited about this new Tim Burton cacophony of mental wails, but a few Xanax might change my mind. (via JoBlo) 

Nature Finally Lashes Out at Brendan Fraser in ‘Furry Vengeance’
Wednesday, December 23 by

This raccoon needs to fire his agent. If you thought that the box office failure of Old Dogs signaled a sea change in American cinema, I'm sorry to say that you need to be less stupid. Below is the trailer for Furry Vengeance, a movie about woodland animals trying to destroy Brendan Fraser. Don't worry yourselves, animals. His management team will destroy him in due time. Furry Vengeance opens in theaters April 2nd, 2010, just in case you're looking for an empty theater that day. Commit eyeball-seppuku by watching the trailer after the jump…

‘The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus’ Actress Lily Cole
Wednesday, December 23 by

Lily Cole is one of those models that you look at and think to yourself, "How is that girl a model?" She's hot but also kinda weird looking, like there's too much face for her features, even though her eyes are huge. I have absolutely nothing to complain about below the neck. A word from Lily: "Kate Moss has had such a phenomenal career and I wouldn't even like to compare myself to her."Lily's got more meat on her bones than Kate, which is nice. Maybe she'll become known as the fat Kate Moss, meaning healthy-looking.  Check out more fat Kate Moss pics after the jump.

New ‘Inception’ Trailer is Trippy, French
Wednesday, December 23 by

France has given America so much over the years; the Statue of Liberty, cheese, a place for Johnny Depp to sleep, and now this new Inception trailer. I'm not sure if this is the trailer that will be attached to Sherlock Holmes later this week but I am sure that it looks intriguing and deserves a watch. Leonardo DiCaprio contends with a city that is literally curling in on itself as if it were being potato-peeled. It's hard to say what exactly is going on other than that, but Christopher Nolan's visual style has me hungry for more. Sadly, I failed French but I'll try to translate anyway. Hmmm. All I've got is "the duck… is tall." What does that even mean?? Is that part of another one of those damn confusing virals? (Making Of) Bend your mind around the trailer after the jump…
