PETER JACKSON TO SHOOT EVERYTHING IN 3D NOW
Friday, June 12 by

In an interview with Marketsaw – a blog devoted entirely to 3D filmmaking – Steve Schklair, the CEO of 3ality Digital Systems claims that Lord of the Rings helmer Peter Jackson will be shooting all of his directorial efforts using 3ality's technologies.  You can read the whole article at Marketsaw.  Sites like ScreenRant suggest that Jackson's devotion to 3D from now on will help shift exhibitors over to the 3Dark Side, which they have been reluctant to do because of retrofitting costs and the lack of 3D movies.  Personally, I'm a fan of 3D technology, from the the way UP used it organically in the story to the stuff that's used shamelessly by films like My Bloody Valentine 3D.  Part of me wishes Drag Me to Hell had been in 3D.  Some of the film's shock moments are perfect for the third dimension. Here's hoping that Jackson considers going into his back catalogue and 3D-ifies flicks like Meet the Feebles and Dead Alive.  I can't think of a more visceral theatrical experience than an AIDs-ridden rabbit vomiting forth upon the audience in the movie theater and the audience in the film.  That's, like, sooooooo metaaaaaaaaa… Meet the Feebles Vomit – Watch more Funny Videos

KICKASS EVERYMAN FIGHT SUITS FROM FILM
Friday, June 12 by

In general, when it's time to kick some ass, it's time to kick some ass.  Forget what you're wearing and get ready to rumble. This philosophy has been adopted throughout the entire history of cinema, the most recent example being seen in last weekend's #1 film, The Hangover.  Above: Mr Chow (Ken Jeong) makes a balls-out attack on Phil (Bradley Cooper).  Chow's balls are fully out in the theatrical release. But what about other scenes, guys who find themselves fighting in outfits that strike us today as either ridiculous or insanely awesome, or most likely, both? Superheroes, of course, would be cheating, because we all know they almost always look nuts cleaning up the city in their plastic nipples and oversized codpieces. 

‘THE WAY YOU DON’T DIE’ CLIP FROM ‘THE HURT LOCKER’ + 8 NEW IMAGES
Thursday, June 11 by

THE HURT LOCKER – The Way You Dont Die Clip – Watch more Movie TrailersIn the latest released clip from Summit's upcoming war flick about the military's bomb squad in the Middle East, Colonel Reed (David Morse) gets Staff Sgt. Wiliam James (Jeremy Renner) to open up about just how many bombs he's blown up working for the EOD.  I've seen the film and when put in the full context of the story, even this little dialogue piece is tense.  I kept thinking Renner's character was gonna get the sh*t chewed out of him by Morse for being a loose cannon.  Turns out Morse's character's a bit of a wildman himself, I guess. We also have eight new still images , which you can see after the jump!

‘CHOP SHOP’ SCENE FROM ‘TRANSFORMERS REVENGE OF THE FALLEN’ NOW AVAILABLE IN ENGLISH
Thursday, June 11 by

CHop Shop from REVENGE OF THE FALLEN – Watch more Movie Trailers This same scene has been available in German for about a day now and… I think I liked it better when I had no idea what 'Wheelie' was saying.  It's the first time the majority of us have heard the pesky little Decepticon's English-language voice and he comes off like some comedian working the room up in the Catskills.  I hope Revenge of the Fallen takes time to explain how some of the Transformers came to adopting regional colloquialisms and accents, unlike the first film.  I kept waiting to see the deleted scene from that one where Jazz crash lands on Earth and immediately devours every Wayans Brothers movie he can get his giant metal hands on.  Word up, Optimus!

STEPHEN SOMMERS NOT FIRED FROM ‘G.I. JOE’ MOVIE
Thursday, June 11 by

The interweb was aflurry all morning with rumors that GI Joe: Rise of Cobra director Stephen Sommers had been taken off the movie and locked out of the edit room.  The reason?  According to some, the film was testing the lowest a film from Paramount has ever tested.  And Paramount put out Britney Spears's Crossroads. Well, turns out rumoring is half the battle (G.I. JOOOOOE!!!), because Movieline.com reports – with 100% assurance, mind you – that the whole story is bullsh*t.  Read Movieline's investigative report here. I'm a fan of the original Mummy.  After that, I can't say I've been in love, infatuated, or even vaguely felt anything like an emotion toward Stephen Sommers's films.  In fact, I think I remember my therapist chastising me for "putting up a wall" when he asked me if he should go see Van Helsing opening weekend.  So it's not surprising that there were rumblings of Sommers being scrutinized for his approach to filming a beloved '80s property. 

DENZEL & TRAVOLTA CAREER TIMELINE
Thursday, June 11 by

This Friday, The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 opens and marks the first time two of cinema’s larger-than-life icons star opposite each other. Both born in 1954, John Travolta and Denzel Washington have had storied, if not tumultuous careers. We’ve decided to map out their careers like New York MTA maps train routes in the hopes it will shed some light on the box office success of 'Pelham.  Is their train right on time or did it just miss the station by a New York Minute?

SCORSESE’S ‘SHUTTER ISLAND’ GETS A TRAILER
Wednesday, June 10 by

Martin Scorsese's newest film, Shutter Island, a drama set in an insane asylum got a new trailer today and… well… it looks suitably insane.  Some may say it's off-the-hook insane.  Those people would possibly be using a combination of hyperbole and street slang.  Check out the trailer after the jump and see star Leonardo DiCaprio descend into the deepest, darkest bowels of madness, where even Michelle Williams manages to still look really hot.

VASSUP?! NEW ‘TRANSFORMERS REVENGE OF DER FALLEN’ CLIPS… IN GERMAN!
Wednesday, June 10 by

I want so badly for the German dub to refer to Optimus Prime as David Hasselbot. Two new clips from Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen just surfaced on the 'nets today, and you're in for some real spoilers, if you speak German.  Otherwise, it's just a lot of robot carnage.  I hate missing all the nuances in Michael Bay films… Check out this clip, where Tyrese says, with great gravitas, "Oh, nein!" as the Decepticon known as Demolishor shows off how accurate Transformers are with their etymology.  I can't help but imagine if Will Smith were reacting to this, he would have chimed in with an "Awww HELL nein!"

COMMANDO GETTING A REMAKE?
Wednesday, June 10 by

Remember when I said they'd make a Commando sequel before they'd reboot the film?  I lied.  Actually, I never said anything about anything.  But the rumors have started flooding in, and Slashfilm has found several instances of corroborating evidence that indeed, a Commando sequel just might be in development… and that it might have a star already willing to take up the John Matrix mantle. The trail of clues starts in Australia, where, according to JoBlo, there's an article in a magazine called RCI that simply states a remake is being developed. Okay.  But what of it?  I heard Fox just optioned the remake of Tom Rothman's dream he had last night, a dream that was essentially a reënvisioning of Garfield 2. But there's more.  CineFools.com also has picked up on the possibility that Dwayne Johnson is attached to the film already.  I don't know how I feel about this.  I think I have to meditate on it by watching the GREATEST opening credits sequence of all time… from the original Commando.  You can watch it, too, after the jump.

5 ‘CAUGHT MASTURBATING’ MOVIE SCENES
Wednesday, June 10 by

Different smart people are always debating what it is that movies are supposed to do for us. From "transcending the emptiness of our modern lives" to "reflecting our secret desires," somebody always has some crackpot theory about what a movie means.  So what does it mean that dudes getting interrupted while wanking it is in almost every kind of movie you can imagine? Drama, Coming of Age, Suburban Comedy, 1990's Hip Hop parody comedy.  Here, in an intro to the genre, we present you with a survey course, Movie Masturbatus Interruptus 101.   AMERICAN PIE

MICKEY ROURKE IS WHIPLASH IN ‘IRON MAN 2′
Tuesday, June 9 by

Above is the first official look at Mickey Rourke as baddie "Whiplash" in Jon Favreau's Iron Man 2: Our Secrecy Has Become Self-Parody.  Originally, the character of Whiplash was female, but has since been reënvisioned as a dude whose real name is "Marc Scarlotti" within Marvel's Ultimate line of titles.  Here's a pic:On the downside, the Rourke version of Whiplash kinda looks like a pirate from the future.  On the upside, the Marvel comics version of Whiplash looks like DC Comics' Bane character.  And something tells me that the image of Rourke is pre-official costume.  That "something" is the official Iron Man 2 Whiplash concept art, which you can see after the jump.

The Snuggie.  You may not own one, but you probably know someone who does, or at least you're familiar with the "blanket with sleeves" that's become a bit of a internet meme.  It's such a ridiculous yet attractive product that it's managed to seep its way into mainstream media, making appearances on shows like "30 Rock," and "The Big Bang Theory."  And much of its popularity seems to be based on this really lo-fi – some may say terrible – commercial.  Snuggie Commercial – Watch more Funny Videos

‘THE HANGOVER’ REVIEW
Friday, June 5 by

“Oh my God…” That was what the woman sitting behind me in the theater kept muttering as we watched The Hangover together.  I have to admit, I had a similar reaction to this clever and raunchy comedy, albeit a silent one.  I can understand why Zach Galifianakis’s ass might elicit such a response, verbal or internal.  In a world of reimaginings and adaptations, it was refreshing to experience an original piece of material taking full advantage of its potential.  The concept is so simple it’s a wonder no one’s thought of it before, but hallelujah for the people out there like Todd Phillips who get creative when delivering big laughs.
