Start Date Rumored for ‘Ghostbusters 3′

Tuesday, November 2 by

I’ve fallen victim to so many Ghostbusters III rumors that I’m becoming a tad jaded. But hey, this latest claim has a date involved, so it must be legit.
There's some intriguing intel from the usually reliable Production Weekly this morning though: they're suggesting that Ghostbusters 3 has a start date."We're hearing that Sony Pictures is planning to put Ivan Reitman's Ghostbusters 3 into production in May 2011" tweets the tweet.
The nice thing about Twitter is that at least when someone uses it to lie they are forced to do so in 140 characters or less. But honestly, Sony needs to shi poop or get off the pot so Dan Aykroyd can move on to Blues Brothers 3D. (Empire Online)

Everyone Watched ‘The Walking Dead’

Monday, November 1 by

Hordes of viewers shuffled toward the series premiere of "The Walking Dead" last night on AMC. So much so, that the new series made television history. The first series about zombies ("The Hills" doesn't count) netted a record-breaking 5.3 million viewers and a 3.3 adults 18-49 rating.
That's the largest premiere of any cable series this year as well as the largest in AMC history. That number would probably have been larger if football and the World Series weren't on last night, and folks like myself weren't out for Halloween. The writing is on the wall. Get ready for zombie over-exposure. They're the new Betty White. (THR)

Fox’s ‘The Chicago Code’ Teaser Won’t Take Your Sh*t

Monday, November 1 by

Fox has unleashed the teaser trailer for their upcoming Chicago cop drama, "The Chicago Code." The series is created by Shawn Ryan, the man behind one of my favorite shows of all time, "The Shield." Don't let the cliché line shouting in the trailer deter you from watching the show when it premieres in February. I've seen the pilot and it is an exciting, well-written piece of television. Ryan knows his cops and his hometown well. He won't get away with the same explicit content that "The Shield" did, but there will be plenty of police brutality. Hey, it's Chicago, fugetaboutit! Ah crap, wrong town.

Baz Luhrmann Invites Hollywood’s Hottest To ‘The Great Gatsby’ Casting Couch

Monday, November 1 by

There can be only one.
As is the trend nowadays, Baz Luhrmann is using the casting process of his new film as an opportunity to meet Natalie Portman. The director is in search for an actress to portray Daisy Buchanan opposite Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire in his adaptation of the classic novel, The Great Gatsby.
Luhrmann workshopped the script with DiCaprio, Maguire, and Rebecca Hall but wants to expand his efforts to find the right fit. Though Hall still remains in the running, the director is also planning to shoot tests with the usual suspects: Keira Knightley, Amanda Seyfried, Abbie Cornish, Michelle Williams, Scarlett Johansson, and the recently-single Blake Lively. I see what you're doing there Baz, and I'm disappointed. I'd expect that kind of behavior from John Mayer. Not from you. (Deadline)

‘SNL’ Vid Picks: Shy Ronnie 2, Jon Hamm Does Best Cry Ever Guy

Monday, November 1 by

I don't watch "Saturday Night Live" anymore, but I do watch the popular videos that make their way to the web the following Monday. This week, Jon Hamm hosted with musical guest Rihanna. Of course Andy Samberg and Rihanna did a digital short sequel to "Shy Ronnie" entitled "Ronnie and Clyde." It's not as funny as the first, but Rihanna is hot and I like that she returns to the bank to snag hostage Jon Hamm so she can bang him.
Jon Hamm also appeared in a sketch in which he parodies Best Cry Ever Guy. If you don't know who that is, shame on you for not being more addicted to the Internet. You can check out the original video here and then the 'SNL'-ized, Hamm-ized version after the jump.

‘The Walking Dead’ Recap: Days Gone Bye S1E1

Monday, November 1 by

"The Walking Dead" premiered at long last! Everyone was so excited that the entire country dressed up in costumes and had parties and went trick-or-treating, JUST to celebrate this shows premiere! What did you think of it (post a comment, let's discuss)? The ScreenJunkies review can be found here, and my review can be found here so I don't need to review it again. But what we wanted to do each week was have a post where we can discuss the show and point out some of the cooler moments, so let's do it.

Ron Howard Keeping the Gay In ‘The Dilemma’

Monday, November 1 by

Artist rendering.
You wouldn't know it by the trailer for his most recent movie, but Ron Howard is a protector of comedy. The director won't cave to the pressure that GLAAD is applying to edit the offensive Vince Vaughn line "Electric cars are gay," from both advertising and the final version of The Dilemma. He's quoted as saying:
"'The Dilemma' is a comedy for grown-ups, not kids.  It's true that the moment took on extra significance in light of some events that surrounded the release of the trailer and the studio made the decision to remove it from advertising, which I think was appropriate.  I believe in sensitivity but not censorship. I feel that our film is taking additional heat as an emblem for many movies and TV shows that preceded it that have even more provocative characterizations and language. It is a slight moment in THE DILEMMA meant to demonstrate an aspect of our lead character's personality, and we never expected it to represent our intentions or the point of view of the movie or those of us who made it."
Very well put. When reached for comment, Vince Vaughn added:
"This pressure is gay."
And then Kevin James made out with a sandwich. (LA Times)

For Reals First Look at Spielberg and Jackson’s ‘The Adventures of Tintin’

Monday, November 1 by

Over the weekend we got c*ck-teased with snippets of images from a first look at Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson's The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn: Longest Title Ever. Now Empire has officially unbuttoned its blouse and unleashed the goods. We have three honest-to-goodness official images.
Jamie Bell plays Tintin and Snowy his dog is played by…not Andy Serkis! Haha! Gotchu! You totally thought that since it was a mo-cap animal it HAD to be Andy Serkis. He's not in every mo-cap movie, ya know? But he is in this one, as Captain Haddock. You couldn't keep that guy away from a unitard with diodes on it if you tried.
The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn: Longest Title Ever doesn't come out until next Christmas, so check out the pics after the jump to get a taste.

Interview: Danny Boyle

Monday, November 1 by

Danny Boyle’s latest film is getting a lot of buzz, but not for the heartwarming triumph over adversity. It’s got that, but what people are focusing on is a dude cutting his arm off. 127 Hours is the Aron Ralston story. James Franco plays Ralston, an outdoorsman who gets trapped with his arm pinned under a rock. His escape by self-amputation was documented before, but Boyle’s film makes it visceral.

John Carpenter Will Direct ‘Darkchylde’

Monday, November 1 by

While his movies are being remade left and right (except for Vampires), John Carpenter is only looking forward. The horror great has signed on to direct an adaptation of the comic book Darkchylde. The story follows a girl named Ariel Chylde who often transforms into the monsters of her nightmares.
The film has been in the works for some time and now is gaining traction. WETA created a test video to present how a Darkchylde film should look and feel. It's a pretty cool concept and with Carpenter at the helm, there's room to really push the special effects envelope. Could be awesome. Or it could turn out like Vampires. (/Film)

First Look At ‘Tintin.’ Kinda Sorta.

Sunday, October 31 by

Here's something special for fans of slow torture. Empire has the first look at Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson's joint effort The Adventures Of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn. And they're revealing it really effing slowly. The plan is to release a full image of Peter Jackson and WETA's postwork this week, but in the meantime, snippets of the image are being teased every few hours. 
Currently, ten of twelve close-up images have been revealed but they give you a good idea of what the film's texture and realism. So, if you've ever wanted to see Tintin's Adam's Apple up close in an ornate frame, brother, I've got a treat for you.
Check out the first look(s) after the jump…
