Yesterday, several of Quentin Tarantino’s friends gathered in New York for lunch to roast the director in only a way that the Friars Club can. They all gave Tarantino sh*t about his face, cadence, use of language, and supposed foot fetish.
Future Oscar host James Franco and guy who dresses embarrassingly at the Oscars Ben Stiller are set to join Noah Baumbach’s next project. Taste the angst!!
Batman has Robin. Siegfried has Roy. And The Lone Ranger has Tonto. So with Johnny Depp already cast as Tonto in Gore Verbinksi’s Lone Ranger, who does the actor feel would best complete the pair?
Dani Pudi plays the character on “Community” who provides most of the show’s self-referential meta humor. So it makes sense that Abed is responsible for a stop-motion animated episode in the tradition of the Rankin Bass specials.
With zombies being so hot right now, it’s likely Ruben Fleischer will jump on Zombieland 2 after he finishes up 30 Minutes Or Less. But not if Warner Bros has their druthers.

Yee-haw, lil’ doggies! A herd a posters have hit the Inernetz over the past couple-a days so we brought in Whiplash to round ‘em all up fer yas. I think you’lls all agrees that Photoshop does not a good one-sheet make, er somethin’.
Harry Potter fans are having a strange reaction to the trailer for Cowboys & Aliens. The title Cowboys & Aliens is causing viewers to break out into laughter, similar to the way that the name M. Night Shyamalan causes audiences to break out into “Awww, what dah fuh’s?!?”
While watching two drugged-out teens lick their way to the bottom of the porn industry is fun, watching two “legitimate” actresses getting it on for art’s sake has its own perverse charm.
