People die, and it's very sad, but when you're famous, or even "famous," television networks and award ceremonies put together an in memorium video that reminds everyone that you died, how attractive you were when you were younger, and how you used to work on projects that weren't complete sh*t. Below is a remembrance video that Turner Classic Movies put together that does all those things, and also displays some fantastic Autumn foliage. Are the dead people supposed to be the wind or the leaves? My guess is there's a little bit of them in every one of us. It's comforting to know that Michael Jackson is inside me right now.
It's one thing to work years creating a breakthrough technology that will revolutionize cinema as we know it, and it's another thing to work years figuring out how to ilegally record the aforementioned breakthrough. Bootlegging is an art, and bootlegging Avatar is a bootlegging artist's Mona Lisa.

Our friends over at Heeb Magazine snagged a nice little interview with director Harold Ramis, and they got some info out of him regarding the progress of Ghostbusters 3:We’ll introduce some new young Ghostbusters, and all the old guys will be in it, too. Think Christopher Lloyd in Back to the Future … GB3 is progressing with plans to shoot next summer and release in 2011 … Oh, and I have two one-of-a-kind Ghostbuster yarmulkes sent by fans. Screw the news about the movie, Ramis has Ghostbuster yarmulkes! I'll be the envy of all my temple.. There have been a lot of rumors lately regarding the development of the latest Ghostbusters film, so let's just hope Ramis isn't talking a big game. I want to see all the people in the top picture do the same dance, but each carrying at least 50 more pounds now.Check out the rest of the interview with Harold Ramis here.
Leo emerges from a basin of amniotic fluid. The new trailer for Inception has hit, and even though this one's in English I still have no idea what that f*ck is going on. Last week we showed you the French version which made a lot more sense in the sense that it was foreign and foreign things are weird. What I gather from this trailer is what we already know about the movie: Leo DiCaprio is entering people's minds and stealing images/thoughts/dreams/wet dreams with a sleek, metallic vibrator. He also likes to spin a dreidel to work through problems. Can I surmise that his character is Jewish? Oh Nolan, why won't you give me more! Oy vey! Check out the new Inception trailer at Apple.
Okay, this better SERIOUSLY be it. Spike Lee edited together old footage of Michael Jackson with some new wide, fast push-in shots to create the final music video for his final song, This Is It. Lee's probably livid (he gets livid a lot) that the director of High School Musical, Kenny Ortega, got to direct the big screen version of M.J.'s farewell, and he wanted to create his own harmonious images of the now months dead superstar. Check out the video below if you still have an interest. (via PerezHilton)
I pity the fool who doesn't offer compensation in the form of Snickers! I realize this is going to shatter your world, but it doesn't look like Mr. T is going to make a cameo appearance in The A-Team picture film. Dwight Schultz, the original "Howling Mad" Murdoch, and Dirk Benedict, the original "Faceman" Peck, are still rumored to possibly grace the screen, but Mr. T has given director Joe Carnahan a mild middle finger.Apparently it's not about the money (or Snickers) either. He simply just doesn't see the point in making such a small appearance (as he won't be on set long enough to stockpile Snickers). Mr. T is content with his life right now and enjoying giving back to the community. Pardon me while a make the universal sign for "jerk me off" with my free hand. I guess he can't take a day off from barking nonsensical orders at the volunteers of Habitat for Humanity to pal around on The A-Team set. Don't worry though, the most you'll miss from his absence is a slight, amused smile and you thinking to yourself, "Hey, that's Mr. T on screen in The A-Team Movie. How amusing." (via LatinoReview)
Allllright, who's playing a trick on the people over at the film Deadline? If this is a publicity stunt, kudos, everyone. Ku-dos. DVD retailer Redbox, after realizing that they're advertising Brittany Murphy dead in a bathtub and she recently died in bathtub, decided to clean up the panic-induced sh*t in their tighty-whities and pull the poster for Deadline. The recall of the image from over 19,000 kiosks nationwide will take 7 to 10 days to complete, and the film's distributor is working on an alternate DVD cover image. They're running on the assumption that Britany Murphy really is dead and not simply trying to push copies of her latest film. It's probably good to error on the side of caution, but if Murphy reemerges from her tomb in a few days, Redbox is going to look awfully silly. (via Cinematical)
Here's a classic clip from the film Silent Night, Deadly Night that reminds us all never to strike up a conversation with the elderly. Chances are they're going to frighten or cough on you. "You see Santa tonight you better run, boy! You better run…for your life!"
The only thing I don't like about Lake Bell is her name. Who names their kid after a body of water? Hippies, that's who! River Phoenix's parents did it and look what happened to him. He died outside of a nightclub. Let this be a lesson to all parents: don't go chasing waterfalls. Please stick to the rivers and the lakes that you're used to. Why did I just quote TLC? See Lake taking Meryl Streep's Baldwin in It's Complicated on Christmas Day.A word from Lake: "You have to keep hobbies in L.A. Otherwise, it's sad."Um, hello, Lake. What about being disillusioned? That keeps things constantly happy. And don't you tell me otherwise! See pics of Lake in a lake after the jump. Brilliant!
Grooooooaaaaaan. The trailer for Kevin Smith's new "comedy" Cop Out, formerly know as A Couple of Cops, formerly know as A Couple of Dicks (yes! funnier!), has hit, and it's about as amusing as tweezing someone else's pubes. I can't even tell what the movie is about, except that Tracy Morgan's character (I'm guessing a mentally challenged volunteer?) is teamed up with Bruce Willis's character (a "doin' it for the paycheck" grizzled veteran who's simply getting too old for this sh*t?). Oh Kevin Smith, what has happened to you. I don't doubt that movie making by committee impeded on your ultimate vision for this film, but I honestly don't know if your ultimate vision would have been much better even if you were given free reign. Maybe if Jay and Silent Bob were hanging outside of every convenience store Morgan and Willis will inevitably go in to. After all, you gotta get product placement in their somehow. My ideal sponsors for this film would be Chiquita Bananas and KY Jelly. Cop Out rips one in theaters on February 2nd, 2010. Check out the trailer after the jump. Or if you'd like to be more entertained, just watch the opening credits of Panic Room.
Editor Kees van Dijkhuizen has put together a tremendous Cinema 2009 retrospective. He's mashed together an enormous amount of 2009 film clips for his piece, 1 Year, 342 Movies, 12 Months of Production, 7 Minutes. Think of it as a more whimsical Trailer To End All Trailers.From Kees: "2009 proved that innovation is rewarded, and for that reason, I've decided no film should be left behind." For the most part, he's true to his word. The only thing missing from this clip is Nic Cage and his singing iguanas.

I'm pretty sure that if I attended this tea party I would be the biscuit this motley crew served their LSD on. Who is the Mad Hatter's interior designer anyway? You can't mix multi-colored tablecloths and then just place a caterpillar on a giant mushroom in the foyer. It ruins the whole flow of the space!This new art proves to be just as trippy as the most recent trailer, and I'm not sure if that's a good or a bad thing. I still haven't decided if I'm excited about this new Tim Burton cacophony of mental wails, but a few Xanax might change my mind. (via JoBlo)
This raccoon needs to fire his agent. If you thought that the box office failure of Old Dogs signaled a sea change in American cinema, I'm sorry to say that you need to be less stupid. Below is the trailer for Furry Vengeance, a movie about woodland animals trying to destroy Brendan Fraser. Don't worry yourselves, animals. His management team will destroy him in due time. Furry Vengeance opens in theaters April 2nd, 2010, just in case you're looking for an empty theater that day. Commit eyeball-seppuku by watching the trailer after the jump…
Lily Cole is one of those models that you look at and think to yourself, "How is that girl a model?" She's hot but also kinda weird looking, like there's too much face for her features, even though her eyes are huge. I have absolutely nothing to complain about below the neck. A word from Lily: "Kate Moss has had such a phenomenal career and I wouldn't even like to compare myself to her."Lily's got more meat on her bones than Kate, which is nice. Maybe she'll become known as the fat Kate Moss, meaning healthy-looking. Check out more fat Kate Moss pics after the jump.
France has given America so much over the years; the Statue of Liberty, cheese, a place for Johnny Depp to sleep, and now this new Inception trailer. I'm not sure if this is the trailer that will be attached to Sherlock Holmes later this week but I am sure that it looks intriguing and deserves a watch. Leonardo DiCaprio contends with a city that is literally curling in on itself as if it were being potato-peeled. It's hard to say what exactly is going on other than that, but Christopher Nolan's visual style has me hungry for more. Sadly, I failed French but I'll try to translate anyway. Hmmm. All I've got is "the duck… is tall." What does that even mean?? Is that part of another one of those damn confusing virals? (Making Of) Bend your mind around the trailer after the jump…
Last week we showed you the hard rockin' trailer for Ridley Scott's down and dirty Robin Hood film. Today we have the UK poster which has the softer, more subtle approach of Russell Crowe trying to kill us. It features an intense Crowe murderously staring down the shaft of his pointy, shooty thing.More importantly, the poster reminds us that director Ridley Scott and Crowe once famously teamed up for Gladiator. The point they are trying to make is, if you loved seeing Russell Crowe stab and beat people in that film then you will probably enjoy him stabbing and beating AND shooting people in this film."I'll teach ya to readjust lights while I'm thespianing, ya c*nt."Given Crowe's explosive temper, the still looks more like he's threatening an unlucky lensman a la Christian Bale. Save where Bale uses his words, Crowe goes the more direct route of shooting them in the face. Robin Hood arrives in theaters May 14th, 2010. (HeyUGuys via First Showing)

Leonardo DiCaprio scowls in the new mystery Who Farted? The Motion Picture Talkie. Just kidding, you guys. Martin Scorsese didn't make a movie about someone farting. Though if he did, smart money would have Max von Sydow being the culprit. He seems like the type.This poster is nearly identical to the earlier poster with a few hardly noticeable changes. Mainly they spruced up the color to make it less dismal and depressing. Afterall, the last thing I want to be is bummed out when I see a movie about pyschologically crippled people stuffed into cages against their will. (CHUD)
The Karate Kid (2010) – Watch more Funny Videos Now, this is a trailer all about how I learned to karate kick and flip upside down. If you'd like to take a minute and hear about this thing, I'll tell you how I became the only black kid in Beijing. My moms moved to China and that really sucked. In the playground, getting my ass beat up. I talked to one Asian girl and then I'm like, "Damn! Did Jackie Chan just break off that kid's hand?" (via Yahoo)
I have never met one male that doesn't know and love Rachel McAdams. Some people say she has a big forehead, and I say to them, "YOU'VE got a big forehead!" I'm childish like that. Catch Rachel in Sherlock Holmes on Christmas Day giving Robert Downey Jr. sass. A word from Rachel: "If I hurt someone, if I were to accidentally poke someone's eye out, I would laugh. And then I'd say, 'I'm sorry, I really do feel bad,' but then I'm on the floor rolling."We share the same affinity for gauging people's eyes out! Our first date will certainly be an interesting one… :O Don't you touch Rachel's eyes in the pics after the jump!
Here we have a poster and trailer for Knight & Day. The film stars Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz, and Cameron Diaz's donger. Seriously, poster design guy? You're supposed to airbrush OUT the lead actress's penis. It's that lack of attention to detail that got you fired from designing Lady Gaga album covers. Check out Tom Cruise's comedic and karate chops in the trailer after the jump…
DIRECTOR: James MangoldCAST: Tom Cruise; Cameron Diaz; Maggie Grace; Peter Saarsgard; Paul Dano; Marc BlucasSYNOPSIS: An action-comedy centered on a fugitive couple on a glamorous and sometimes deadly adventure where nothing and no one – even themselves – are what they seem. Amid shifting alliances and unexpected betrayals, they race across the globe, with their survival ultimately hinging on the battle of truth vs. trust.
The red band trailer for Kick-Ass certainly lives up to its name by showcasing Chloe Moretz's foul-mouthed Hit Girl as she kicks every ass in sight. More specifically, she shoots a dude through his cheek, cuts off a Malcom Jamal Warner lookalike's leg, and drops the "C" bomb on a room full of thugs. Now I'm all kinds of homesick. Seeing such a young girl growl the "C" word really makes me miss my nieces.
This morning we have a final crazy and creepy poster for The Crazies. The image shows a man (probably a Crazy) dragging a bloody pitchfork down a long hallway. At least, I think it's blood. Looks pretty dark and inky. Oh hey! Did you guys get into my henna?!!!The Crazies opens on February 26th but you can watch the latest trailer here. Then make up your on plot around that and convince people you saw an early screening, you big liar.
Here's a teaser trailer for the movie Marmaduke, based on the classic comic strip Great Dane that isn't nearly as cool as Scooby Doo. Owen Wilson, fresh off of Marley & Me, provides the voice of the beast, who's apparently an angst-ridden teenager. Are we talking a teenager in dog years or people years, because if it's dog years than that means he's probably going to die soon. If that's the case then yay.

Last week we saw Leonardo DiCaprio knee-deep in the first poster for Christopher Nolan's Inception. And now we have a second poster which appears to be an aerial photo taken in Chicago's historic Inception District. What? You've never been??!!! There's this tiny hole in the wall that serves amazing tapas. Tell Brian I sent you.You can catch the second teaser in front of Sherlock Holmes and see the first teaser right here.
"Don't get fresh with me Richard Belzer." Luc Besson's latest French language film, Les Aventures Extraordinaires d'Adele Blanc-Sec (rough translation: French Tomb Raider) has a new teaser. Not much is shown in this first look. We see a guy with awesome Mythbusters-esque facial hair, a French Wilford Brimley, and a pterodactyl. We do not get to lay our eyes on hot French weather girl turned movie star Louise Bourgoin, but I have a feeling we'll be seeing a lot of her in the new year. Early reports are that this film has a 95% chance of being mostly kick-ass. (/Film) Get out your French-to-English dictionary and check out the trailer after the jump…
DIRECTOR: Luc BessonCAST: Louise Bourgoin; Gilles Lellouche; Phillippe NahonSYNOPSIS: An adventure set in the early party of the 20th century and focused on a popular novelist and her dealings with would-be suitors, the cops, monsters, and other distractions.
