No need for me to oversell it. Sit back and enjoy this rare glimpse of movie magic. (/Film)

“My Generation” Actress Jaime King
Friday, September 24 by

Jaime King is the "blonde goddess" to Mickey Rourke as Goldie and her sexy vixen twin sister Wendy in Sin City. This week she turns up on the tube to be a part of the new ABC drama ensemble, "My Generation," where she'll playing young desperate housewife going to her high school reunion. If girls at my reunion in a few years are this hot, I won't regret attending.
A word from Jaime: "The hardest thing is when you go home and realize that you've grown 10 years in 2 days."

Kate Beckinsale Reprises Hot Vampire Role In ‘Underworld 4′
Friday, September 24 by

Pew pew! Pew pew pew!!
After Whiteout turned out to be a washout, Kate Beckinsale is ready to return to the Underworld franchise. The actress has officially signed on to reprise her role of Selene, the hot karate vampire she played in Underworld and Underworld: Evolution. She did not return for the third film in the series, Underworld: Rise Of The Lycans, otherwise known as Cliff-Sex: The Movie.
The search for a director is underway, as Len Wiseman will only return in a producer capacity. There's also no word yet on what outlandish sex location will be featured this time around. (Coming Soon)

New ‘Bill & Ted’ Definitely In The Works: Alex Winter Backs Keanu
Friday, September 24 by

Linkin Park?
Alex Winter has corroborated Keanu Reeves' story from earlier this week. William S. Preston, Esq. himself, told MTV that a third Bill & Ted film is in the works. They were struggling to find the right plot for a while, but now writers Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon have hatched a plot that they've begun writing.
The big issue, however, is what to do about George Carlin's character? Winter assures there's no way they would re-cast the part, so the trick now is to delicately work around his character. I'm hoping this means they'll use sophisticated Coke commercial CGI technology to bring him back to life. If I know Carlin, that's definitely what he would want to happen. (MTV)

Christopher Nolan Narrows Search for ‘Superman’ Director
Thursday, September 23 by

Now that's just super!
Christopher Nolan and Emma Thomas, the producers behind the upcoming Superman film, have begun interviewing potential directors, Deadline is reporting. Nolan will reportedly submit his choice to Warner Bros. as early as next week.
On the list: Unstoppable's Tony Scott, Let Me In director Matt Reeves, Battle: Los Angeles helmer Jonathan Liebesman (who just got the Warner Bros/Legendary job of directing Clash of the Titans 2), Duncan Jones, who just directed Source Code, and Sucker Punch helmer Zack Snyder.
What? This list is a farce! No Crispin Glover? No David Lynch? No thank you, Mr. Nolan.

Emma Stone, Mia Wasikowska to Hotten Up ‘Spider-Man’ Reboot?
Thursday, September 23 by

Let the web slinging begin!
Director Marc Webb has reportedly auditioned Emma Stone for the part of Mary Jane in his upcoming Spider-Man reboot. Stone, who was most recently seen in Easy A, would take over for Kirsten Dunst who played Mary Jane in the first three films.

There are also reports that Webb is auditioning Mia Wasikowska for the part of Gwen Stacy, Spidey's first love. If true, it sounds like we might have a good old-fashioned cat-fight on our hands. Of course I'm referring to Puma (a.k.a. Thomas Fireheart), Spider-Man's nemesis with the ability to morph into a powerful humanoid mountain lion werecat! (Vulture)

Oliver Stone Gives Shia LaBeouf Much-Needed Direction
Thursday, September 23 by

"So, Shia. When I told you to 'f**k off,' what I really meant was 'f**k off.'"
Oliver Stone just sky-rocketed to the position of my favorite person on Earth with today's news that he told Shia LaBeouf to eff off. LaBeouf recounted the story at the Wall Street 2 premiere:
"We're in the Adirondacks, and Josh Brolin and I are shooting this bike scene, and at one point I say to Josh a line — 'You should look at yourself in the mirror first and see yourself. It might scare you.' I looked at the line for a couple of months and thought I'd go to Oliver and say, 'You look at the mirror and look at yourself. It's sort of repetitive. Why don't we just cut one of those? Why don't I say, Look at yourself. It might scare you.' This is Oliver verbatim. He looks at me and goes, 'I like mirror. I wrote Scarface. Go fuck yourself.'"
Oliver Stone, I officially forgive you for U-Turn. Now, could you please cast Justin Bieber in one of your films? (Vulture)

Emily Blunt Forced To Play ‘Engagement Games’
Thursday, September 23 by

With movies like Dan In Real Life, Gnomeo and Juliet, The Wolfman, and Gulliver's Travels on her resume, you'd think Emily Blunt would be a little less apt to take a role in a goofy movie. You'd think.
Nope, the actress is going to flush away all the street cred she earned starring in those flicks by signing on to Engagement Games. The plot reads like a Kate Hudson fever dream;  three sisters get engaged around the same time and compete for their mother's wedding ring. The father (probably played by Alan Alda) comes up with the idea of crowning the victor after a round of Family Olympics. May the best curler win! (Pajiba)

Christopher Guest Takes Aim at Retro Collectors
Thursday, September 23 by

The King of the "mockumentary" is back, and this time he's taking aim at retro collectors. Christopher Guest, the man behind Waiting for Guffman and Best in Show, is returning to his director's chair, and he's bringing along Harry Shearer and Michael McKean.
Guest, Shearer and McKean are putting their heads together to make a movie about the world of retro collectors; people who ferret out such things as old comic books, Barbie dolls, vintage magazine ads, vinyl 45-rpm singles, or even – ick! – Charles Manson song lyrics written on Kleenex. There’s a massive underground of collectors who would do the Borgia’s proud as they scheme and double-cross to possess the item they crave.
While there has been no confirmation that this is, in fact, a mockumentary, chances are high. If so, will it do as well as the Casey Affleck/Joaquin Phoenix mockumentary, I'm Still Here, which has grossed an estimated $259,290? Only time will tell. (WOW via MovieFone)

“Hawaii Five-0″ Actress Grace Park
Thursday, September 23 by

From the space odysseys of "Battlestar Galactica" to the waves of the new "Hawaii Five-0," Grace Park has given TV shows a much needed tough babe punch. Park shows with her past performances that beauty and fists can go hand in hand with making you one of the coolest actors to look out for in the future.
A word from Grace: "I'm going make a movie one day and make like 25 million dollars."

‘Goodfellas’: The TV Series? ‘Goodfellas’: The TV Series.
Thursday, September 23 by

Goodfellas: The Sneaker
Looks like "Jersey Shore," "Boardwalk Empire," and "Cake Boss" are going to have to think twice if any were hoping to be the heir apparent to the "Sopranos" legacy. Deadline reports today that there are plans underway for a Goodfellas television series.
Quick question, why? The original is a high watermark in the world of film, and even if the show turns out to be primo, it can't measure up to its predecessor. The only way to do this right, is a longshot. They need to cast Ray Liotta. It's not like he won't do television. His turn as Principal Luger in "Hannah Montana" Season Four, Episode Two "Hannah Montana to the Principal's Office" proved that.

9 Film Characters Who Were Buried Alive
Thursday, September 23 by

Aside from sitting through a Tyler Perry movie marathon, what’s more horrifying than the thought of being buried alive? OK, fine; watching Love, Actually. But you get my point. Being put underground and left for dead is a horrifying prospect. Which is what makes the new film, Buried, so intriguing.
The premise is simple: a man, played by Ryan Reynolds, wakes up six-feet underground with nothing but a lighter, a knife, a cell phone, and no recollection of how he got there. In fact, the premise is so simple that it doesn’t seem like it could carry a feature film. But based on the positive reviews thus far, the filmmakers found a way to make a compelling movie about a man in a box.
In honor of this achievement, we’ve put together a list of nine classic “buried alive” movies. Enjoy, or so help me God, I will put you in the ground while you’re still breathing.

Sesame Street’s ‘True Blood’ Parody Learns Ya Rhyming
Thursday, September 23 by

Why "Sesame Street" made a "True Blood" parody entitled "True Mud" is beyond me. I'm assuming it caters to moms who are familiar with the HBO series, and little kids whose parents have no problem exposing their spawn to vampire hate sex. That's progressive for a children's show.
Check out the video of "True Mud" after the jump. Then maybe after you can tell me what the hell True Mud is and why grouches require it. And if grouches do require it, why isn't Oscar THE Grouch the one asking for it instead of some Southern emo puppet?

‘X-Men: First Class’s James McAvoy Will Make Us Forget All About Patrick Stewart’s Xavier
Thursday, September 23 by

"Oops. Didn't see you there. I was just posing naturally."
MTV met up with James McAvoy to talk about his upcoming turn as Professor X in Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: First Class. He knows that he has some large shoes to fill, as the role seemed tailor-made for Patrick Stewart, but he's confident that he can bring his own touch to it.
"I'm basically going to try and bury Patrick's performance. I think the fun about these films, when you go back and you either reboot or do a prequel, is you get to see how people became who they are. That means that you have to do them differently and by the end of the movie you have to do them the same way. The interesting journey is what happens to them, what changes them, what makes them evolve — not just mutate, but emotionally and psychologically evolve."
Oooo. Those are some tough words. I'd be careful what I say about Sir Patrick Stewart. The man is quick with a comeback after all.

Rob Zombie to Film 17th Century Period Piece ‘Lords of Salem’
Wednesday, September 22 by

Renaissance man Rob Zombie has signed on to write and direct Lords of Salem, Deadline is reporting. Based on the title alone, I'm assuming it's a 17th Century period piece about a group of noblemen, and not a film involving a demonic 300-year old coven of witches set in contemporary Salem, MA.
"What excited me most was Jason saying, you can have total control over the script, casting and final cut,” Zombie told me. “I said I’m in.”
Really, What excited me most is when I found out they were making Hobo with a Shotgun into a full-length feature. But to each his own, I guess.
Shooting is set to begin next year.

Scarlett Johansson’s ‘Black Widow’ To Be A Movie Now Too, I Guess
Wednesday, September 22 by

"Oh, you want to give me my own movie? Okay."
If you bought a movie ticket to Elektra and enjoyed it so much that you went out and bought a DVD or Blu-Ray copy, it's time for you to ask for extra shifts at the Moron Store (where you work) so that you can save up for the next needless big screen adaptation from Marvel. Marvel head Kevin Feige confirmed today that they have been in talks with Scarlett Johansson about her Iron Man 2 non-character Black Widow getting her own movie.
They're not going to get too deep into discussions regarding plot just yet though. The Avengers is their number one priority. They have artistic integrity, you guys. (Screen Crave)

‘Inception’ To Become A Video Game For Some Reason
Wednesday, September 22 by

Just call him Leonardo DiCoinoprio. Christopher Nolan has unveiled plans to some Romans that a video game based off Inception is in the works.
"We are looking at doing is developing a videogame based on the world of the film, which has all kinds of ideas that you can't fit into a feature film. That's something we've been talking about and are looking at doing long term, in a couple of years."
Is this a good thing? Is this a bad thing? I'm honestly not sure how I feel about this. My mind is still pretty messed up as is thanks to the end of Metroid. (Variety)

Wachowski Brothers’ Film to Feature Gay Soldiers Hating Bush
Wednesday, September 22 by

For years, I've been writing the major studios and begging them to make a film about American servicemen engaging in hardcore gay sex and taking part in a plot to kill George W. Bush. And for years, the Secret Service has been asking me to stop. And stop I will, now that my requests have finally been answered by none-other than the Wachowski Brothers (or whatever you call them now) and their new film, Cobalt Neural 9.
The story starts off as, yes, a hardcore romance between the American soldier and the Iraqi soldier during the second Gulf War– they are depicted "rutting like animals behind this fence" while wearing burqas– but when disaster strikes, the two plot to kill the man responsible for the war: George W. Bush.
Wow, I'm not sure that will play in Peoria. But then again, I could be wrong. After all, two dudes wearing burqas and "rutting like animals" still sounds less gay than Wachowski's live action version of Speed Racer. (Cinema Blend)

“Eastbound & Down” Actress Ana de la Reguera
Wednesday, September 22 by

 
Ana de la Reguera is one hot latina actress often mistaken for Penelope Cruz. Who wouldn't be distracted by those beautiful eyes and slender built? Yet Ana, who is already a soap opera star in Mexico, has been able to branch out on her own with supporting roles in this past year's Cop Out and the much awaited new season of "Eastbound & Down." Kenny Powers, you're one lucky douchebag SOB.
A word from Ana: "Wrestling is ungodly Ignacio" from Nacho Libre

Detroit 1-8-7 Actress Natalie Martinez

Natalie Martinez is best known for her performance in the completely forgettable remake of Death Race. She will be a regular cast member on the new ABC cop drama "Detroit 1-8-7," a show that from the rumors of the failed first pilot will not be on past a few episodes. So check Martinez with her badge and gun before it's too late.

Norm MacDonald Developing Sports Show for Comedy Central
Wednesday, September 22 by

Does the crappy screen shot above look familiar? It should. It's Norm MacDonald hosting the 1998 ESPY awards for ESPN. His performance insulted so many athletes that he was never asked to return, but it's still one of the funniest, bravest performances you'll ever see.
Now, over ten years later, Norm is returning to the world of sports with his own sports-talk show on Comedy Central.
The show would be a satirical look at the sports world. On board with MacDonald is Daniel Kellison, a veteran TV producer whose credits include ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and “The Man Show,” according to person familiar with the project…
I know some people (like our friends at Warming Glow) are afraid Norm isn't a good fit as a talk show host. And I see their point. But if he can manage to create a show that's half as funny as the following clip, it will still be hilarious. (Show Tracker)

Jodie Foster Stands By Mel Gibson’s Work In Her ‘Beaver’
Wednesday, September 22 by

She's got his back.
No word yet if The Beaver will see a theatrical release, but director Jodie Foster has come to Mel Gibson's defense when asked about the disgraced star's recent scandal and beating in the press. Foster tells More magazine about her brother from another mother. Take it away Jodie:
"[Mel is the] easiest, nicest person I've ever worked with [and] the second I met him, I said, 'I will love this man for the rest of my life.'"
In all fairness, her other best friends are Darth Vader, that guy who punched Snooki, and that chick who threw those puppies in a river.
"When you love a friend, you don't adandon them when they are struggling. Of course, Mel is an undeniably gifted actor and director, and 'The Beaver' is one of his most powerful and moving performances. But more importantly, he is and has been a true and loyal friend. I hope I can help him get through this dark moment."
She then added: "Oksana really should have just blown him in the jacuzzi. He deserves it." (via The Playlist)

And we've got an exclusive (read: not actually exclusive) look at their exclusive trailer for their exclusive look. You know how we roll. **finishes grilling cheese sandwich on an iron**
In the glimpse we see, Ghostface is doing the same things he/she usually does — wears a robe, chases around Neve Campbell, throws people off roofs. Y'know, the yoozjh.
Check out the footage after the jump. You will have to sit through some Justin Bieber first though. Apologies.

Finally, Sandra Bullock is Considering a Holocaust Movie
Wednesday, September 22 by

I'm a serious actress, now!
Well folks, it's the moment we've all been waiting for. Sandra Bullock (Demolition Man, Speed 2: Cruise Control) is considering a role in a film about the Holocaust.
EW says Screen Gems is offering her the lead in a movie called Never Forget. It’s based on a documentary called On Moral Grounds in which a woman sets out to reimburse Holocaust survivors swindled out of life insurance policies by a European company.
Never Forget? That's only slightly better than calling it Holocaust Movie. But even so, I'm sure Sandra's likable, girl-next door qualities will really shine through in a film that deals with the deaths of millions of people. After all, you just can't help but fall in love with her smile. Plus, maybe Matthew McConaughey can play the wacky boyfriend, or something. (EW via Cinema Blend)

Jim Carrey’s ‘Under Cover’ May Land Director David O. Russell
Wednesday, September 22 by

David O. Russell is in the running to direct the upcoming Jim Carrey comedy, Under Cover, 24 Frames is reporting. In the film, Carrey will play a divorced dad who joins a local "cover band to raise money to win the custody battle against his ex-wife."

This would mark Russell's first comedy since I Heart Huckabees, and would probably be less on the "existential" side, whatever the hell that means. But I'm sure the film will be a success as long as Russell is able to land a part for Lily Tomlin (First Showing).
