Matthew McConaughey has signed on to star in a comedy, but in a shocking twist, it won't involve Sarah Jessica Parker or the ghosts of girlfriends past. It will, however, involve Academy Award winning director William Friedkin and a script by Pulitzer Prize winning writer Tracy Letts.
Killer Joe, co-staring Emile Hirsch, follows a pair of siblings "who plot the death of their mother for the insurance money." McConaughey will play "Killer Joe" Cooper, a dirty cop hired to do the deed.
Will McConaughey's collaboration with Friedkin (The French Connection, The Exorcist) prove as successful as his previous collaboration with director Tom Dey (Failure to Launch, Marmaduke)? Only time will tell. (THR)
Good news for fans of epic fantasy and, or birds flying in slow motion. HBO has released a new teaser trailer for their epic fantasy series, "Game of Thrones."
The clip, which ran before last night's episode of "True Blood," featured your standard fanta-crap fare: men on horses, sword fights, a single hot chick with long, flowing hair. But it also contained a lot of slow-motion shots of a raven flying. I'm sure the raven has some significance, but I'm not going to look it up. That crap's for dorks, yo! And I'm no dork! I'll just check my fantasy football stats, instead. (Deadline)

You pretty much have the whole entire force of God coming at you via Kenny Powers in this new trailer for "Eastbound & Down's" second season. You also have cornrows, a dwarf, hot Mexican women, an army of jet skis, mopeds, and drunken firing squads. This is the closest we will ever come to a Kevin Federline biopic.

In this parody trailer, a new kind of Hobbit is in town, and it's packin' heat. These little guys will street sweep The Shire and set your punk-ass elf-ass straight at any counsel. This summer, Gandalf brings gangta to Middle Earth.

There's a clue inside the baby.
The original Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Noomi Rapace has become the new "it" actress in Hollywood. She recently signed on to deliver death alongside Jeremy Renner in Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, and now she's secured a role in Sherlock Holmes 2. The logline is being kept under wraps, but Noomi is said to be playing a French Gypsy. It is unclear if the role is romantic in nature. One would think Holmes would be smart enough to not trust a Gypsy, but when they cast an evil spell on you at a street fair you can't resist them. It's the only way I can explain the atrocious lamp in my living room. (THR)

The trailer for Country Strong has strummed its way into our Internets, and I seriously think somebody needs to check out Gwyneth Paltrow's Netflix rental history. If The Blind Side and Crazy Heart are on there side-by-side, then I call shenanigans. Between the similarities to those films, and the scenes where people cry so hard they fall on their butts (I counted two), this is such an obvious ploy for an Oscar or a Grammy. In truth, they'd be lucky to get a Razzie for this. Hasn't Sandra Bullock had enough taken from her?

Roger Ebert isn't one to let a lack of a jaw stop him from jawing on about what movies do and don't suck ass. With "At The Movies" officially off-the-air as of August 14th, Ebert has unveiled his newest program, "Roger Ebert Presents 'At The Movies'." It's pretty much "At The Movies" but with occasional appearances from the Roger Ebert Cyborg.
Appearing as the show's main critics are Christy Lemire and Elvis Mitchell. And if Ebert's sagging chin flesh pouch and Elvis's dreadlocks don't do it for you, Kim Morgan will also appear in weekly segments.

NBC’s new Thursday night comedy “Outsourced” is about an American sent to Mumbai to run a call center. We’ve all been on the phone with those guys. It’s not really funny when you’re trying to explain why your DVR is recording the wrong shows, but they’re making it funny on TV. There premiere on September 23 will basically just set up the characters. What we really want to know is how is this going to be funny week after week.
The cast of the show came to the Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills last night to premiere the pilot for fans. We got a spot on the red carpet for some exclusive interviews and the actors promised some edgy comedy involving sexual harassment and Halloween costumes. Visit the Paley Centers in New York and L.A. this week and next for more fall TV previews.

Sienna Guillory, an British model turned actress and daughter of famed Cuban guitarist Issac Guillory, made a name for herself in her performance as Jill Valentine in Resident Evil: Apocalypse. While the movie is little more than fun, violent schlock, her likeness is uncanny to the popular video game character, and she reprises the role in this week's Resident Evil: Afterlife.
A word from Sienna: "I don’t like my nipples showing. They look like targets."
They could be. Depends on what your guy's in to.

Now that his totally not-staged downward spiral documentary I'm Still Here is playing before audiences, Joaquin Phoenix is ready to get back in the game. He's set to star in Big Shoe, a movie that focuses on a shoe fetishist who is also a talented footwear designer. Which could or could not be gross. On the one hand, it's healthy to be invested in what you do for a living. On the other, I'm proud of that Photoshop I did up above, but I didn't choke-fap while creating it. I save that kind of bahavior for the Girl Gallery. (THR)

Do you like John McTiernan's throw pillows? Well do you?!
John McTiernan, the director of Die Hard and Predator, has signed on to Shrapnel, what will be his first film since 2003. The story is about two war veterans who hunt each other in a lethal game of cat and mouse. Evan Daugherty's action-thriller script was on the 2008 Blacklist, and that's even without a warrior alien as part of the cat and mouse plotline.
It'll be nice to see McTiernan back behind the camera, even though his last few films have been way less than Die Hard-y. The director has been busy getting into sh*t with the government over the infamous Anthony Pellicano wiretapping scandal of 2006. His experience is a testament to why you never bug your wife's phone. Or your best friend's wife's phone. Even if her come-hither stares say, "Bug my phone." (Variety)
New footage from Jackass 3D starring Johnny Knoxville, Bam Margera, Steve-O, and Somewhere's Chris Pontius is now available for your cringing pleasure.

Will Ferrell's upcoming film, Casa de mi padre, has unveiled its secret weapon: Mexicans! Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna, both natives of Mexico, have joined the cast of the Spanish language film which producers say will be shot in the style of an “overly dramatic telenovela.”
Considering Bernal was in Y tu mamá tambié and Luna was in Milk, the odds of the film having a homoerotic scene just went through the roof. Couple that with middle-America's current love of all things Mexican, and you've got yourself a guaranteed hit on your hands. (Collider)

FX dropped a testosterone-fueled teaser for their new series "Lights Out." This footage already has me amped up and the show doesn't even premiere until January. How am I supposed to expend all my energy now? Huh?! No you tell me!
The show stars Holt McCallany as Patrick Leary, a former heavyweight champ facing various difficulties in his life outside the ring. We've seen the whole broken down boxer thing before, but I have no doubt FX will deliver a fresh take on the premise. Or I'll fight them.
Check out the teaser after the jump…
Devils and demons have possessed the silver screen in many formats, from comedies to cartoons, CGI depictions, psychological thrillers, and fantasy worlds. Yet the most bad-ass, ripsnorting, fire breathing incarnations that we remember are the ones that send chills down our spines. With Devil taking over theaters Friday, I thought I'd compile a list of the 12 most bad-ass Devils in movies. Nothing is better than witnessing your favorite actor playing the ultimate screen villain of old Beelzebub himself. Hail Satan!
Al Pacino as John Milton – The Devil's Advocate
While the movie is just a silly combination of John Grisham novels meets the production designer of Rosemary’s Baby, there's plenty of hot and steamy sex with Connie Nelson and Charlize Theron. Plus Al Pacino plays the devil, so do I really need to say anything more?
J.J. Abrams is going out with another show. He has partnered up with the younger NoBro, Jonathan, to shop a new crime show around to the networks. With names like J.J. Abrams and Jonathan Nolan attached, and work like "Lost," Dark Knight, and Inception under their collective belt, I'd think it's only a matter of time before this gets picked up. Especially if Joaquin Phoenix can sell footage of the guitarist from Spacehog pooping on him. They're just giving development deals away out there in California!! (EW)
Malin Akerman has agreed to move to the desert with Ethan Hawke. In The Numbers Station, Hawke plays a CIA agent protecting Akerman in a desert safehouse. Naturally, the bad guys show up just as Hawke is drafting his letter to Penthouse and the two are forced to fight back. Because that always happens to witnesses in protective custody, no matter how well-hidden they may be. It's Van Damme's Law of Averages. (Variety)
"Battlestar Galactica" fans should be happy about this. Edward James Olmos isn’t ready to let William Adama go. The creators of the TV series are sticking with prequels but he’s got a plan to see Commander Adama again.
“If they don’t, I am,” Olmos said in a conference call today. “I’m going to go there. I’m going to go there in a graphic novel. Pretty soon I hope. I don't know. It just depends on whether people can get behind it and understand it for what it is. I think people will.”

Kacey Barnfield is another hot kettle from the Union Jack, who will be showing up in not just one but two classically bad horror sequels this month, Lake Placid 3 and Resident Evil: Afterlife. This, for me, doesn't matter just as long as I get to have my personal tea time with her soon.
A word from Kacey: "I love playing her, she's quite a selfish person."

Bring it on, witches.
Jeremy Renner recently spoke to Norwegian site Dagsavisen in loud, deliberate speech patterns to explain that he might work for breadcrumbs in Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters. He also stated that original Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, Noomi Rapace, may play his sister and fellow witch hunter for director Tommy Wirkola and producers Adam McKay and Will Ferrell.
There's no official press release yet, so don't consider this a lock. It's about time Renner returned to comedy. He showed such promise in National Lampoon's Senior Trip. (Twitch)
"Chuck" makes its return September 20, but we can give you hints about what’s happening in the episode airing October 25. They’re six episodes into the fourth season and we caught up with Zachary Levi while was on a break doing some PR for his Disney animated film, Tangled.
Season three ended with Chuck coming clean to Ellie (Sarah Lancaster) about his spy career, and resigning from the CIA. The fact that there’s a season four means there must be more spying and more secrets, but they’re not jumping the shark.

The print campaign for "Dexter" has always been eye-grabbing and awesome, and the new poster art for season five does not disappoint either. We already reported that the new season will follow in the footsteps of The Karate Kid 2, Halloween 2, and the Back To The Future sequels by picking up right where the action ended last season. Looks like this poster is doing the same. So much for spoiler warnings. This baby will soon be seen on billboards, bus stops, subway platforms, baseball stadiums, tramp stamps, magazines, banner ads, and the lunchboxes of the criminally insane.
Captain America solicits a prostitute in the English countryside.
New photos from Captain America: The First Avenger have hit the internet, giving a rare glimpse into the much anticipated film. The photos, which were recently shot in London, show the iconic character riding on a World War II era motorcycle. Although Chris Evans has been cast in the role of Cap, his stunt man was driving at the time the photos were taken.
I know a lot of people will be excited for these pictures, but to be honest, the costume looks kind of lame. But it's far too early to make a solid judgment. After all, I thought the initial photos of costumes from Batman and Robin were lame too, and look how that turned out. (Daily Mail via Latino Review)

The film follows the exploits of a stunt driver who breasts as a getaway driver that boobs mammaries. The film is expected to hit theaters tits bazongas. Boobs. (Collider)

Ron Howard might be biting off more than he can chew. The best ginger director working in the business today is teaming up with screenwriter Akiva Goldsman to adapt Stephen King's beloved novel series The Dark Tower into a feature film and television series. He's going to direct everything himself, battle all the haters who say it can't be done, and stave off a nervous breakdown in the process. Ronnie, you be crazy! Deadline has the deets:
The plan is to start with the feature film, and then create a bridge to the second feature with a season of TV episodes. That means the feature cast—and the big star who’ll play Deschain—also has to appear in the TV series before returning to the second film. After that sequel is done, the TV series picks up again, this time focusing on Deschain as a young gunslinger. Those storylines will be informed by a prequel comic book series that King was heavily involved in plotting. The third film would pick up the mature Deshain as he completes his journey. They will benefit from being able to use the same sets cast and crew for the movie and TV, which could help contain costs on what will be a financially ambitious undertaking.
Peter Jackson is sh*tting in his britches right now. I remember when his back-to-back-to-back Lord of the Rings Trilogy was an unprecedented cinematic feat. If Howard's plan comes together it'll put the whole thing to shame. Thanks Jackson, but we don't need your contributions to film anymore. Ronnie's got the medium on lockdown.
The newest trailer for Monsters finally gives us a glimpse of the bad CGI tentacle monsters. Wow. These things have become far more scary than that time that Fred Savage and Howie Mandel fought them. Now I understand what all the fuss is about! Check out these glowing reviews the film has received so far:
"Utterly unique and original." – IGN
"Awesome. The best giant monster movie I've seen in years." – AICN
"Feel good movie of the year." – Japanese Tentacle Rape Fetishist Quarterly
Monsters opens in theaters on October 29th and On-Demand September 24th. Honestly, I can't wait.
