Gemma Arterton has already earned prestige by playing Bond Girl Strawberry Fields in Quantum of Solace. Some actresses only wish for this one casting dream and then are willing to call it quits. But Gemma, determined to be more than a Bond object, pressed on and is now starring in Pirate Radio, and next year the big action/adventure Prince of Persia with a silky-haired Jake Gyllenhaal. A word from Gemma: "If you do this big film, it will open the doors for all these brilliant things. But you have to do the big film first."You make it sound so easy, Gemma. I'd advice against teaching an acting class at the local annex. Those desperate actresses will tear your pretty eyes out.More examples of how you become famous after the jump.
The grizzly-run media's ploy to lull children into a false sense of security in the presence of bears has advanced a giant leap this morning with the announcement that The Berenstain Bears will be updated for the big screen. USA Today reports that Night At The Museum director Shawn Levy plans to produce a part live action, part CGI feature film based off the characters made popular in the books by Jan and Stan Berenstain. "I'd like the film to be un-ironic about its family connections but have a wry comedic sensibility that isn't oblivious to the fact that they're bears," says Levy in a statement that made me need to open up my dictionary. "The comedy comes from this bear family coexisting in a more recognizably real world." This is how it starts, people. One day your children are giggling at the anthropomorphic bears on-screen as they participate in the father-son sack race, the next they're climbing into a windowless van with Pedobear.
The Berenstain Bears get dropped into the real world.
Richard Kelly enjoys the macbre and the mindf**k equally. He brings real emotion to his stories, but he also wants you to think…about what the hell is happening in his twisted narratives. And before you begrudgingly scream out "Southland Tales!" at your computer screen, let's just all take a deep breath and give him a pass on that one. And now all the people that liked Southland Tales are probably screaming at their computer screens, so you should also take a deep breath. We're all friends here.
Throughout his film career, director Roland Emmerich has laid waste to several landmarks and institutions — the White House (twice), the Pentagon, New York City, the Golden Gate Bridge, and John Cusack's credibility. In his new film 2012, he smashes and shakes historic sites across the globe to rubble. But we've finally found a building impervious to his computer-generated destruction. In an early draft of the script, Emmerich was planning to level the Kaaba, one of Islam's holiest sites. He pussied out when his cowriter mentioned that inclusion of the scene would more than likely lead to a fatwa on their heads (first of all, grow some balls and secondly, this movie had a writer?). Naturally the disaster-meister opted to eradicate the Vatican and a group of Buddhist monks instead. When asked whether he feared any kind of retaliation for the script change, Emmerich asked, "What are you gonna do about it, Buddhists? Huh? You gonna cry? Buddhists gonna cry? Huh? Huh? Huh?"

Jake Gyllenhaal jumps from crumbling ledge to overhang to gargoyle in this action-packed trailer for Prince of Persia. I haven't seen so much sand and fire whipping through the air since since my last drunken visit to the coast. Mike Newell of Harry Potter fame directs and Jerry Bruckheimer of facial hair infamy produces, guaranteeing a magically grand Disney adventure. Hopefully we'll see a higher quality version in the very near future, but for now this will have to do. I only hope they do something about Gemma Arterton's voiceover. It sounds like she's narrating a video game, and not the trailer for a video game adaptation.
Director: Mike NewellCast: Jake Gyllenhaal, Gemma Arterton, Ben KingsleySynopsis: Based on the video game, which follows an adventurous prince who teams up with a rival princess to stop an angry ruler from unleashing a sandstorm that could destroy the world.
Things keep getting worse for producers of Terminator: Salvation. Between Christian Bale's blow up, McG's pissing contest with Michael Bay, and the controversy over Moon Bloodgood's handbra, they've received a ton of free press that they couldn't spin into box office gold. Now the Halcyon Holding Group has filed for bankruptcy and is ready to sell the franchise rights to the highest bidder. Apparently all the big studios are lining up to secure the rights. But why? The last two movies were pretty abysmal and The Sarah Connor Chronicles never found the audience it deserved. With Arnie indisposed and special effects breakthroughs having plateaued it's time to face the sad, cold truth. We as a people have to face the fact that killer robots are sooo over. Let us all begrudgingly tear down our Chopping Mall posters and set fire to our I, Robot theater-lobby standees. Today will usher in the age of the friendly (probably farting) robot. But honestly, is there any way to breathe life into Terminator? Preferably one that doesn't involve putting Peter Berg behind the camera? Let us know your thoughts. (The Financial Times)
Why? Why, why, why, why?! JJ Abrams, you had a chance to put the amazingly buxom Diora Baird in a tastefully revealing bra and panties and you decided to NOT put Diora Baird in said lingerie. Do you need to replace the lenses in those stylish black frames of yours? The woman is a ten and you decided to go with a woman who is not Diora Baird:For shaaaaaaaame. Chris Pine and Diora might have had amazing chemistry, but now we'll never know because a robot could have played the role below. Hmmmm a robot Diora Baird… Now there's something that shouldn't have creeped into my imagination. [Topless Robot]
Thanks to the folks at Bloody Disgusting, we get a sneak peak at George Romero's latest attempt to breathe more life into the zombie horror genre (pun blatantly intended). There's everything you'd expect in the trailer below: zombies, humans, guns, brains, stilted dialogue. We don't watch these films for the breakthrough performances though, we watch them because we feel compelled to on the off chance that something blows our brains out of our skull (oh man the puns are so goooood)! Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think. Is Survival of the Dead going to be better than Land of the Dead?
You probably best recogonize Rebecca Mader from her role as Charlotte in LOST, but this Friday she'll be starring opposite The Clooney in Men Who Stare At Goats. There's not doubt that she stands out in a crowd with those long flowing locks of red hair. It must have been so much fun growing up with red hair like that.A word from Rebecca: "Growing up with red hair is not fun."Eeeeeeeee… Don't I have egg on MY face. Well growing up as brunette sometimes isn't fun either. All the kids at my school, Red Headed Kids Only Elementary, always picked on me.See more stellar examples of red headed adulthood after the jump.
Director: George RomeroCast: Kenneth Welsh, Kathleen MunroeSynopsis: On an island off the coast of North America, local residents simultaneously fight a zombie epidemic while hoping for a cure to return their un-dead relatives back to their human state.
"I've given you sunlight… I've given you rain…"Michael Jackson's concert film This Is It predictably topped the box office this weekend given that it had zero competition. However the $20mil domestic take was lower than expected. The low number has prompted nervous filmmakers to expand the film's two week limited run until past Thanksgiving. You see? This is what happens when your star refuses to promote the film in any way, shape, or form. (Reuters)
While talking to Robert Zemeckis about his upcoming film A Christmas Carol, MTV slipped in a question about a Who Framed Roger Rabbit? sequel, and it appears one is in the works. Sure, one's been in the works for two decades now, but now one is really in the works, and with the original writers. Check out what Zemeckis had to say below.

The Internet cried foul this past summer when Moon Bloodgood's topless scene was cut from the theatrical version of Terminator: Salvation (UK Title: Terminator: Sorry Chaps, No Titties). Now with the upcoming December 1st release of the unrated Director's Cut DVD, a clip of the scene has found it's way online. And as you can see from the video the result is underwhelming. Hard to believe that Warner's would have to cut this in order to get the PG-13 rating. I could understand if there were a lurid trampoline sequence but this is hardly anything. Then again, I'm pretty desensitized. That's right. I've heard DOZENS of stories about what boobs look like and someday I hope to see some for myself. Some day. (**single sad tear rolls down cheek**)
A teenager is cast in the Mercury Theatre production of "Julius Caesar" directed by a young Orson Welles in 1937
He's played a cannibal, a president, an author, an Englishman, and even a black dude. Now, Sir Anthony Hopkins is in talks to play a Norse Allfather in Kenneth Branagh's Thor. Hopkins is said to be for the role of Odin, father to Thor and his evil adopted brother Loki. We can't think of a better candidate to play the ruler of Asgard. Hopkins has the perfect mix of Gandalf, Santa, and "Stone Cold" Steve Austin needed to pull the role off. (Empire)
Avatar Trailer – Watch more Funny Videos Literally five minutes after we posted the international trailer for Avatar, Yahoo went and posted the domestic one in HD like a bunch of cocky biatches. I apologize for the name calling, Yahoo. You are not cocky biatches… I'm just a lazy biatch. If you like versions of trailers that are sharper, louder, and have less Elvish subtitles in them, than you're sure to prefer this one over the grainy one the foreigners have to watch.

Who knew Tony Scott had it in him. According to Variety, Scott has taken a liking to Chippendales, the formal male strippers in bowties, cufflinks, and, a must for any fancy event, leather pants.With a tone similar to the Scott-directed "True Romance," pic will follow the improbable rise and fall of Chippendales creator Steve Banerjee, who went from pumping gas in Culver City to running a high-end nightclub that evolved into Chippendales. After hiring a New York choreographer to polish the all-male dance troupe, Banerjee became wildly rich, as well as unreasonably competitive and paranoid. Banerjee hired a hitman to murder the choreographer when negotiations went sour. After being arrested, Banerjee died in jail awaiting trial.Now that's a Cinderella story if I've ever heard one. Minus the contract killing and all-male dance troupe. In regard to casting, no actors are attached yet, but there's gotta be a part in there somewhere for Denzel Washington. I could show you a photoshopped picture now of Denzel's head on a Chippendale's body, but I'm not gonna 'cause you want it too much.
The Internet has been subsisting on a grainy bootleg version of the full-length Avatar trailer for nearly a week. Well, those days are behind us. Though the domestic trailer is not due to debut online until tomorrow, America has, much like the evil Marines in the film, raped Thailand of their international trailer. Are we sure this is Thai? The subtitles look more like Elvish or the frosting trim on a gingerbread house.Anyway, Avatar opens on December 18th and is about dinosaurs eating army men. What are your thoughts? Do you plan on seeing Jim Cameron's 3D Rumble in the Jungle??

Peace indeed, Corey Feldman. He's getting the big peace out from his Playboy model wife, Susannah Feldman, who just filed for divorce from the childhood actor/adult reality TV star. According to Zimbio:Susannah's flame for Corey was apparently sparked at a young age. She has been quoted as saying, ""I knew I would marry Corey ever since I saw Stand By Me." According to Screen Junkies' unsubstantiated gossip, the official reason for divorce on the document:He's Corey Feldman.We've also heard reports that Susannah was tired of Corey Haim sleeping on their living room couch. Two Coreys is apparently just too much. I know because I've accidently flipped past The Two Coreys.

The NFL. Sure, it has its merits. But up until a short while ago, it was still a passive experience. Then along comes Fantasy Football. And, lo and behold, with it came a reason to tune into every single NFL game from every week, because the outcome of every play meant – and probably still means – the possibility of whipping shit on your friend for your obvious superiority in selecting the most chemically perfect formula of football players who are clearly executing the specific plan that you personally have designed for them. It's like rocket science… but with heart and concussions.
Spike TV hit us with the good stuff last on the Scream Awards, and no I'm not talking about the captivating evening of the award show itself. We get another look at basically the first trailer for Alice in Wonderland, except this time the producers threw in some extra tiny morsels to place on tip of your tongue and let melt into your bloodstream.All the classic Tim Burton elements are present, except of course for Johnny Depp who, wait a minute, is that Depp in creepy contact lenses?! Well this changes everything. Whether or not you think Alice is going to be awesome it's probably going to be awesome, and if you bet against it you will surely suffer the consequences of your friends' ridicule and swift punches to your vital organs. Hey, I don't know the content of your friends' characters.Never bet against Burton.
