Monday, November 8 by

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.

Kunis Is Timberlake’s Slam-Piece In ‘Friends With Benefits’ Red Band Trailer
Friday, November 5 by

After yesterday’s posting of the No Strings Attached trailer, the film became an instant classic. So much so, that there’s already a copycat. Today we have a red band, naughty trailer for Friends With Benefits, which stars Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis in the Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman roles respectively.

David O. Russell and Ice Cube Reteam for Gritty 70′s Cop Movie
Friday, November 5 by

Now that David O. Russell is willing to do just about anything, he’s got another weird sounding project in the works. It’s still too early for big details, but he and his Three Kings star Ice Cube are working together on a potential franchise. No, it won’t involve any kids asking when they’ll arrive at their planned destination.

Trailer for Ivan Reitman’s ‘No Strings Attached’
Friday, November 5 by

Behold, the trailer for Ivan Reitman’s No Strings Attached, a film about a couple that tries to have a purely sexual relationship without falling in love. After watching it, I realized that life is funny. One minute you’re directing some of the greatest comedies of all time, and the next you’re directing an Ashton Kutcher movie based on an old episode of “Seinfeld.”

Adam Sandler Assaults Kid In ‘Just Go With It’ Trailer
Friday, November 5 by

Columbia Pictures has dropped the trailer for Adam Sandler’s latest, Just Go With It. It’s funny how that title encapsulates pretty much what I do with all of Sandler’s movies now, because it’s so exhausting to fight it anymore.

Review: Megamind
Friday, November 5 by

Megamind is going to suffer for being the second animated superhero movie. In fact, it follows a long line of Dreamworks being second to Pixar (fish, monsters although they did beat them to insects). I’m not saying it’s The Incredibles, but Megamind is the best Dreamworks animated movie and certainly the best animated movie this year.

Review: Due Date
Friday, November 5 by

Due Date is a slow build of a comedy, and it’s effective at that. By the time it gets really crazy, you’re so waiting for it that it’s a cathartic release through the rest of the movie. It also means that the first half could be a bit of a chore if you’re not in it for the long haul.

Kevin James In ‘The Zookeeper’ Trailer
Friday, November 5 by

I can’t even muster up the will to make a clever headline for this post. Columbia Pictures has dropped the trailer for The Zookeeper starring Kevin James. He’s basically Doctor Doolittle sans the title that comes from years spent in animal medical school.

Review: Black Swan
Friday, November 5 by

Black Swan is some classic Darren Aronofsky crazy. If you missed the high style of Requiem for a Dream or the abstract interpretive level of The Fountain, they’re back. Yet it’s also set in a physical world like The Wrestler, so maybe I can work Pi into this comparison somehow too.
