The Three Stooges movie may be dead. At least, according to serious actor, Jim Carrey (Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls, Batman Forever). He shot down any hope of seeing him portray Curly in The Farrelly Brothers stab at the classic masochists. His main reason? Jim Carrey does not fat suit.
It’s nice to see Todd Phillips and Aaron Sorkin talking trash right to someone’s face. Rather than bitch and moan in an interview and then claim their words were “taken out of context,” the pair took the Writers Guild of America to task in front of the WGA West Coast president, John Wells.

Voldemort and his Death Eaters invaded Grand Central Station looking for Harry Potter a.k.a. just another day in New York City. Alright, maybe it was less typical considering the flash mob consisted of actors instead of recently released Bellevue patients.
The secret screening at AFI Film Festival was the long awaited boxing drama The Fighter. Mark Wahlberg waited four years to make this movie and it was a lot for me to take. I mean, I can handle death and despair. That’s a good time at the movies. You give me an abusive family and that’s just hopeless.
Channing Tatum is steppin’ up 2 da Jump Street. The actor is in talks to don Silly Bandz and return to high school to totally narco on the student body with Jonah Hill.

They could call it “The Cancer Causing Anti-American Puppet Crapstravaganza,” and I’d still go see it twice.
A montage of people meeting glass entitled Defenestration the Movie. If one thing came out of it, it’s that I learned “defenestration” is the act of someone going through a window. Kind of bummed they missed the opening scene from Wanted.
Faced with the challenge of not being able to decimate any landmarks has given Roland Emmerich cold feet. It came as a surprise when the Independence Day and 2012 director signed on the direct the low-budget, “found footage” alien invasion flick The Zone, given the ginormous budgets with which he’s used to working.
Warner Bros is aiming high for the sequel to Clash Of The Titans. But maybe they’re aiming a little too high.

In his audition for Anchorman, Steve Carell made the choice to play Brick Tamland like a giggling idiot. So much so that it looks like he’s on the brink of passing out. Even with the degraded video quality, you can tell his face gets awfully purple.

It’s Tron Tuesday again! That means more Tron Legacy stuff. If for some reason you weren’t itching to see Tron Legacy before, this third trailer should spark your interest. Unless you’re vehemently opposed to awesomeness.
Dreams really do come true. One minute, you’re appearing in a Twix commercial. The next, you’re on “Mad Men.” And finally, you’re starring opposite Chad Michael Murray (that’s something people dream about, right?).
With a spring deadline looming on its option for the sci-fi classic, Dune, Paramount is in a mad dash to secure a director and set a start date for production. If the studio is not “absolutely confident” in the project by early 2011, it will lose its right to the film.
Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon argue on their show “The Trip” about who does a better Michael Caine impression. I can’t tell who wins. Brydon points out how slow Caine speaks, and Coogan exemplifies the broken speech pattern when Caine gets upset. I could watch this for hours.

The news that Zac Efron has been offered the lead in the Hughes Brothers adaptation of Akira is single-handedly responsible for the stock of asthma medicine shooting through the roof. That is to say, chubby basement dwellers are PISSED.
Bruce Willis’s steady transition into Vin Diesel is nearly complete. He’s now signed on to star opposite Paul Walker and a rapper in a heist movie. If he surfs on a missile during the next full-eclipse, the transformation will be complete.
Hayden Panettiere is wasting no time in becoming Hollywood’s next Scream Queen. With Scream 4 under her belt, she’s now joining the thriller Downer’s Grove.
