‘Avatar’ Porn Parody Trailer Won’t Give You Blue Balls
Tuesday, September 28 by

This doesn't need much set up. It's the trailer for Axel Braun's This Ain't Avatar XXX 3D porn parody. It doesn't show anything explicit, but you can probably guess how the blue creatures in it connect. Hint: penis and vagina. (i09)

Exclusive: RZA Talks ‘The Man With The Iron Fist’ Fighting Techniques
Tuesday, September 28 by

Wu-Tang Clan’s The RZA is moving into film directing with an idea that would make The Shaw Brothers proud. The Man with the Iron Fist will star Russell Crowe in RZA’s ultimate concept for martial arts. There’s been a little speculation so far about RZA’s ultimate vision. During Fantastic Fest, after he presented master Yuen Wu-Ping with a lifetime achievement award, RZA told me his idea for Iron Fist fights.

‘Lost’ Star Josh Holloway Recruited For ‘Mission: Impossible 4′
Tuesday, September 28 by

Josh Holloway, best known for playing con man and quip spouter Sawyer on "Lost," has chosen to accept Mission: Impossible 4 as his next project. He'll suit up with a cast that already includes Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner, Paula Patton, Ving Rhames, and Simon Pegg. No details on who he'll play or what he'll do or how the movie will include a plot. I do know the when. It's shooting in the fall for a December 2011 release.
Mission: Impossible 4 will be directed by Brad Bird, the guy who makes terrific animated movies. It's the first studio film for Holloway and the first live action studio film for Bird. Talk about the odd men out. If some teasing and serious intimidation on Tom Cruise's part doesn't cause rifts in production someone isn't taking full advantage of their elite Hollywood status. Give the rookies purple nurples while you still can, veterans! (THR)

Jared Harris Is Moriarty In ‘Sherlock Holmes 2′
Tuesday, September 28 by

Sweet belt-buckle, bro!!
There's been a lot of speculation about who would end up playing Professor Moriarty in Sherlock Holmes 2. The list of candidates for the role of Holmes's greatest enemy boasted big names such as Brad Pitt and Daniel Day Lewis. And now, the waiting is over. Without further ado, the man who will play Sherlock Holmes's archnemesis is…. "Mad Men's" Jared Harris. Wait, what? The nerd who got drunk and put a steak on his crotch? That's the guy we're talking about here? Shut the front door.
Latino Review broke the story first and I was skeptical. Then Collider confirmed the story and I was less leery, but this still seems like a long shot to me. Guy Ritchie does realize this movie will be playing in America, right?

Fantastic Fest Review: ‘Never Let Me Go’
Tuesday, September 28 by

**Sort Of Spoiler Alert**
Mark Romanek’s cloning drama turned out to be secret screening #2 at Fantastic Fest. Never Let Me Go is about a school for kids who find out they’re being bred solely to donate organs, and they’ll probably die after three or four donations. There was an action movie version of this a few years ago, but it wasn’t very good and didn’t do very well so Romanek’s version may as well be original.

Paul Haggis In Talks For ‘Equalizer’
Tuesday, September 28 by

The proper balance is ever so delicate.
It seems like Russell Crowe doesn't care what movies he does at this point in his career, and he's taking Paul Haggis down with him. After helping Crowe hit his marks on The Next Three Days, the writer/director is in negotiations to script and possibly direct the big screen adaptation of The Equalizer that Crowe is doing for some reason.
I can understand an actor or a writer's desire to do lighter fair, and there's certainly nothing wrong with that. But look before you leap. Anthony Hopkins didn't, and he ended up playing a chimp. (THR)

Fantastic Fest Review: ‘Rubber’
Tuesday, September 28 by

Rubber became a Cannes phenomenon based on its outrageous premise. That alone carried it through Fantastic Fest where its first screening sold out, and I finally made it into the second, which also sold out.

All you need to know is that it is about a tire that kills people. That is enough to get you to see Rubber. That’s certainly all I needed to hear. I would watch a trilogy about killer tires.

Natalie Portman Almost Totally Up For A Sequel To ‘The Professional’
Tuesday, September 28 by

Hey, do you guys wanna see a sequel to The Professional? Well, too bads. It's scripted and good to go and Natalie Portman wants it to happen (although she's refused to read it), but it's just one of those things that will probably never come together. The obstacle here is Luc Besson. Portman will only take part in the sequel if the semi-retired director steps behind the lens, but he only seems interested in crapping out more Transporter films.
To further impede production, Columbiana director and "Ben 10" villian Olivier Megaton says that the company who holds the rights has no interest in a sequel. Which causes me to question, why do they hate awesome? (MTV)

Quentin Tarantino’s Editor Sally Menke Found Dead
Tuesday, September 28 by

Quentin Tarantino's long time editor Sally Menke was found dead at 56 years old in Beachwood Canyon in Los Angeles. Not all the details are in yet, but Menke apparently went for a hike yesterday in the 113 degree weather with her dog and when she didn't return her friends got worried. The police searched the area and found her body in a ravine.
Menke has collaborated with Tarantino since Reservoir Dogs and undoubtedly helped establish the director's unique style. I'd even go so far as to say she's the reason we see twenty minute scenes in his films instead of 120 minute scenes. Will another editor be able to reign Tarantino in? Only time will tell. Our thoughts are with Sally's family and whomever is blotting the tears off of Tarantino's chin. (LATimes)

Gore Verbinski Might Direct ‘The Lone Ranger’
Tuesday, September 28 by

Gore Verbinski has his sights on Tim Burton's Guinness World Record. The director has teamed with Johnny Depp on three Pirates Of The Caribbean films as well as the animated Rango. Now, there are rumors that they'll work together again with Verbinski helming Depp's upcoming The Lone Ranger.
Nothing official has been announced, but it's believed this news leaked in advance of Disney's big press event later this week. If true, this is sure to upset the execs over at the Mouse House. They rented all those chairs and everything. Just great. (Deadline)

It’s a Bird! It’s a Plane! It’s Darren Aronofsky Directing Superman?
Tuesday, September 28 by

Director Darren Aronofsky is on the list of possible diectors for Christopher Nolan's upcoming Superman project, Heat Vision is reporting. Aronofsky joins a group that already includes Duncan Jones, Tony Scott and Matt Reeves.
But with Aronofsky in the running, there is also talk that another director has been ruled out…
Ben Affleck, who is soaring after The Town became both a critical and commercial hit, and who actually played superman (or at least the man who became known for him, George Reeves) in Hollywoodland, took a meeting about possibly taking the job, but has apparently moved on to other things.
Something tells me that Affleck moving on to other things before hearing back from the producers is a lot like me moving on with my love life before hearing back from Salma Hayek…or those lawyers, of hers. (Empire Online)

Maggie Grace To Catfight Kristen Stewart In ‘Twilight: Breaking Dawn’
Monday, September 27 by

Someone tell this girl how chairs work.
Take off your press-ons, ladies. Things are about to get rowdy. Taken takee Maggie Grace has been cast as Bella's nemesis Irina in Twilight: Breaking Dawn. My girlfriend hasn't updated me yet on the next installment so I'll let Deadline do the honors:
Irina is a member of the Denali coven, considered cousins to the Cullen clan as the only other "vegetarian" vampire group. When Irina blames the Cullens for the death of her lover, her actions set in motion a terrifying chain of events.
And by terrifying they mean sparkly. The film is being directed by Bill Condon and released in two parts because that means more money. The first part comes out November 18, 2011 and the second part November 16, 2012. After that, Twihards dismember a highly populated metropolis.

Coen Bros. ‘True Grit’ Teaser Promises Retribution
Monday, September 27 by

The teaser for Joel and Ethan Coen's True Grit just rode into town, and it looks like a good one. The action follows Hailee Steinfeld's Mattie Ross as she teams with Jeff Bridges to hunt down the coward that killed her pappy. You might be quick to say that the Coens are trying to recapture the magic of No Country For Old Men, but that I really don't see the similarities. For instance, this teaser keeps it fresh with sun-bleached Western scenery, gunfights, Josh Brolin, and dorky haircuts. Oh.
Check out the teaser after the jump…

Greg Berlanti Discusses His Gritty Take On ‘The Flash’
Monday, September 27 by

Green Lantern producer and co-writer Greg Berlanti offered up some info about how he's handling the gritty world of The Flash. Also, The Flash is going to be gritty now.
Flash' as we're getting into it is interesting, too. Though Barry Allen was a little lighter in the comic, I think because of the nature that he was a CSI and moved in this world of crime before this stuff happened. I think it's tonally somewhere in between 'GL' and 'Dark Knight.' It's actually a little bit darker than when we were working on ('GL'), because you're dealing with somebody who is already a crimefighter in a world of those kinds of criminals and that kind of murder and homicide. I find you talk a lot about different films when you're working on a film, and we spend a lot more time talking about 'Se7en' or 'The Silence of the Lambs' as we construct that part of Barry's world, then I thought when we got into it. It helps balance a guy in a red suit who runs really fast.
He's totally right. I've always said that Se7en and The Silence of the Lambs were okay movies, but y'know what would make them great movies? The presence of the Flash. In fact, I feel that Zodiac's greatest failing was its absence of a red guy in a suit who runs really fast. That and the fact that pretty much nothing happened in it. (SuperheroHype)

Patton Oswalt In For Jason Reitman’s ‘Young Adult’, Patrick Wilson In Talks
Monday, September 27 by

Patton Oswalt has signed on to play Charlize Theron's chubby best friend in Young Adult. Jason Reitman and Diablo Cody, who last worked together on Juno, are teaming up again for the film about a woman who returns to her high school town to basically stalk her old boyfriend like she's Marky Mark. The guy's got a wife and kid now though, so he's not interested in Charlize. Not interested? His Mrs. must do crazy sh*t in the sack.
Josh Brolin decided he couldn't pretend Charlize isn't worth leaving his wife for and now Patrick Wilson is in talks for the role. Seems like a missed opportunity to put Wilson in a fat suit and cast him as the best friend and Oswalt as the ex-boyfriend. I'd love to watch Charlize beg Oswalt to have sex with her and he looks up at her with stern eyes and proclaims, "No, Ugly!" (/Film)

Mark Ruffalo Will Mo-Cap The Hulk In ‘The Avengers’; Doesn’t Understand Technology
Monday, September 27 by

Shrek?
When mumbly actor Mark Ruffalo was hired to take over the Hulk reins from Edward Norton in Marvel Studio's The Avengers, it was assumed he'd only appear as a drowsy-looking Bruce Banner. Now he's let it slip that the Hulk will appear like he just woke from a catnap as well. Ruffalo tells Vulture:
"I'm really excited. No one's ever played the Hulk exactly, they've always done CGI. They're going to do the Avatar stop-action, stop-motion capture. So I'll actually play the Hulk. That'll be fun."
Stop-motion capture? Is that like taking a photo?
This should be interesting to see. Ruffalo seems too laidback to pull off the Hulk's rage, but I think he could surprise us. Then again, he's never performed in such an effects-heavy film before, and has no experience acting against nothing. Unless, of course, you count Jennifer Aniston.

Fantastic Fest ’10: The Adventure
Monday, September 27 by

As you can tell from the above pic, Fantastic Fest in Austin, TX is a splended event for ass-picking. It also screens some mind-bending and stomach churning genre films that you won't see anywhere else. This was my first time at Fantastic Fest and I loved the vibe of the event. Everyone was jazzed to be gathering at a festival that showcases martial arts movies in one theater, cannibal movies in the next, and of course torture porn just down the hall. The festival goes through this Thursday, but I certainly took in my fill of askew cinema over the past five days. You can check out our reviews at the Fantastic Fest page, which I’ll continually update, as our writer Fred is still over in Austin soaking up the on-screen madness and mayhem.

Stephen Fry And Robert Downey Jr. Are Bros In ‘Sherlock Holmes 2′
Monday, September 27 by

Stephen Fry has joined the cast of Sherlock Holmes 2. Guy Ritchie's exxxtreme take on British literature will add Fry in the role of Holmes's older brother, Mycroft. Here's what the witty actor had to say of the part:
"I'm playing Mycroft in the sequel to the Sherlock Holmes film Guy Ritchie directed with Robert Downey Jr., and that sort of part is fun, but just once in a while to play a genuine all round sort of lead figure with complexity and tragedy and wit and all the sort of things that Oscar [Wilde] had was a once in a lifetime thrill."
Okay. Can someone translate that from British to English for me and let me know if it was witty or not? Anyway, in the original stories, Mycroft was considered just as brilliant as Sherlock but was lazy and unwilling to prove his deductions. There's no word yet how the character will be shaped in the sequel nor any on whether or not he'll be an exxxtreme cage fighter. (Bleeding Cool)

Guillermo del Toro is an Epic Troll…Hunter
Monday, September 27 by

Guillermo del Toro has inked a deal with DreamWorks for his first animated film: Trollhunters. Based on a children's book authored by del Toro himself, the story will be geared toward kids (duh) and will focus on…wait for it…trolls!
"I wanted very much to develop a story that could be written for kids but dealt with a genre that was scary," he tells the Heat Vision Blog. "It essentially combines fairy tales with modern times and is about how difficult it is to be a kid. Normally, kids are idealized in animated films. But the growing pains, married with the notion that there is a world right next to us that is completely plagued by creatures of ancient lore, it's thematically fitting with the rest of my stuff."
No word yet on whether these trolls will deny the holocaust and claim Obama is a secret Muslim Homojew, or if they'll just stick to living under bridges and eating bones. (Heat Vision via Empire)

Bilbo Baggins: Union Buster
Monday, September 27 by

Everyone knows that Hobbits, with their hairy leather feet, hate wearing shoes. Well now we can add another item to the list of things hobbits despise: organized labor.
Various unions, including the Screen Actors Guild and the Media, Entertainment & Arts Alliance of Australia, have officially warned their members not to take part in the production of the film due to a dispute over working conditions and residual payments. In response, producer/director Peter Jackson is claiming the move is an attempt by Austrialian interests to gain control of New Zealand's film industry and is threatening to move production to Eastern Europe if the matter is not resolved.
“There is a twisted logic to seeing NZ humiliated on the world stage, by losing the Hobbit to Eastern Europe," he said. "Warners would take a financial hit that would cause other studios to steer clear of New Zealand. Seriously, if the Hobbit goes east (Eastern Europe in fact) – look forward to a long dry big budget movie drought in this country."
Personelly, I thinks Jacksons actions be deplorable. Unions is vary important. Four example, the Tearchers Unions' are vary big in the USA, and education ain't never been better. Sham on u, Peter jackon (Empire Online)

Fantastic Fest Review: ‘True Legend’
Saturday, September 25 by

Drunken boxing is probably the most entertaining form of martial arts to watch. Jackie Chan defined it on screen in Drunken Master and took it to the next level in Drunken Master II. A few other artists have tried it but now master choreographer and director Yuen Woo-Ping is going back to drunken fist with all his decades of experience behind him and modern filmmaking tools at his disposal.

Fantastic Fest Review: ‘Fire of Conscience’
Saturday, September 25 by

I’ve been very excited that so many Asian action films are in the Fantastic Fest lineup. I love martial arts and Hong Kong action, although one subgenre that doesn’t do much for me is the Hong Kong cop movie. Fire of Conscience is one of those, and if that’s your pet genre than I’d imagine this one is a solid entry, but not for me.

Manfred (Leon Lai) is a tough cop who beats up perps because they deserve it. Kee (Richie Ren) is a more optimistic inspector with a baby on the way. Those two and Manfred’s team of cops (Michelle Ye and Kai Chi Liu) pursue a case of drugs, bombs and money.

Fantastic Fest Review: ‘Zombie Roadkill’
Friday, September 24 by

Fearnet’s web series “Zombie Roadkill” premiered at FantasticFest in its 30-minute entirety. It will be online in five parts beginning in October. “Zombie Roadkill” has a good spirit of silly fun and extreme gore. This is definitely a spoof done with a wink, with love for the genre. It’s not Shaun of the Dead but it’s something to watch online in parts.

Fantastic Fest Review: ’30 Days of Night: Dark Days’
Friday, September 24 by

I think we all have a healthy attitude about straight to video sequels. We know they’re not going to be careful attempts to forward the story, but they can either have fun with it or not, and either way it doesn’t ultimately matter. Well, 30 Days of Night: Dark Days is not fun, and it is aggressively bad even by DTV standards.

Fantastic Fest Review: ‘Stone’
Friday, September 24 by

Stone starts with some intense emotional terrorism. This is how you show how seriously conflicted people can be. It’s not just hitting or yelling at each other. What young Jack Mabry does to his family is so sickening you feel anything could happen in this drama. I have not qualms with watching a tough, intense story. Just don’t wuss out on me. Make the characters really complex and manipulative, and let Robert DeNiro and Edward Norton play them.

After about an hour though, you realize that the opening scene isn’t setting anything up for later. This is just going to be one of those films that revels in despair and monotony, just another “bad things happen, people are miserable” pieces for actors who want to show how downbeat they can be.

Bob Dylan Gets Stalked by Fat Guy from ‘Pawn Stars’ (Video)
Friday, September 24 by

Usually, a living legand like Bob Dylan doesn’t lower himself to something as crass as commercial television. Well, not unless it involves Pepsi, women’s underwear, or “Dharma and Greg.” But America’s poet will come out of hiding on an upcoming episode of the History Channel's “Pawn Stars.” I’ll be deep in the cold, cold ground before I refer to it as just  “History.”

Chumlee, the fat guy from the show (by fat guy I mean fattest guy), stalks Dylan and ambushes him outside a hotel. I have no idea if Dylan was in on it, although it is odd that he’s just walking around Vegas with no security. Hopefully the episode won’t inspire a new generation of Mark David Chapman’s. (TV Squad via Vulture)
