‘Burke And Hare’ Trailer Could Use Some Life

Tuesday, October 5 by

When did Maxim shoots get so old timey?
I know that I work for the Internet and am supposed to automatically love everything Simon Pegg does by default, but this trailer for Burke and Hare really doesn't portray the film in a favorable light. Andy Serkis's motion capture looks really convincing. It's almost looks like he's real.
The story is based on the true story of Irish serial killers in Edinburgh, Scotland who murder their victims to then sell them as medical cadavers. The trailer cites the desire to save enough money to bang Isla Fisher as the motive behind the slayings. I can't imagine a court where that defense wouldn't hold up.

Zack Snyder’s ‘Superman’ Will Throwdown With General Zod

Tuesday, October 5 by

Superman rescues mini Zod. It doesn't matter why.
Yesterday's announcement that Zack Snyder would helm the Christopher Nolan-godfathered Superman sent the movie nerds into an asthmatic tailspin. Inhalers were clutched, man-boobs heaved. Since then, details about the film have been popping up all over.
First up, Variety spoke to Snyder, who says it's unlikely Brandon Routh will reprise his dual role of Superman/Clark Kent from Bryan Singer's film. "We're looking in another direction," was the official comment. "Bitch, is you crazy?," was the non-official comment.
Secondly, The Hollywood Reporter is Hollywood reporting that the villian who will be throwing entire buildings at Superman in the new film will be Superman 2's General Zod. Originally played by Terrence Stamp, but hopefully played by Liam Neeson in this version. Has anyone tried to get him on the phone yet? It's not like he says no to movie roles. The man would hand out flyers in a chicken suit if the price was right.

Conan O’Brien Gets Wet ‘n Wild in Sexy New TBS Promo

Tuesday, October 5 by

Conan O'Brien's new TBS show begins on November 8th, and the network is starting to ramp up promotion. In this sexy new ad, Coco prepares for his new gig by washing off his desk. But instead of getting clean, Conan gets down and dirty in a scene reminiscent of Paris Hilton's famously slutty Carl's Jr. ad campaign.
While watching Conan get sprayed with a garden hose was pretty hot, I would have rather seen Jay Leno get sprayed with a fire hose, preferably in the face and genitals. But that's just me. (Coming Soon)

Director John McTiernan Won’t Live Free, Might ‘Die Hard’

Tuesday, October 5 by

It's not unheard of for a huge flop to kill a director's career. But usually, there's no jail time involved. Unfortunately for director John McTiernan, Rollerball isn't your usual flop.

McTiernan (Die Hard, Predator, The Hunt for Red October) was sentenced to one year in federal prison for lying about his involvement with Anthony Pellicano, a private investigator he hired to illegally wiretap producer Charles Roven. Roven and McTiernan worked together on Rollerball, and apparently when the film went south, so did their relationship.

McTiernan's attorney argued that he should not be sent to prison, in part, because he is on an anti-depressant medication not approved by the federal Bureau of Prisons. The judge sarcastically responded that "(McTiernan) won't be the only depressed man in prison."

Daaaaaamn! Yippee-ki-yay, motherf**ker! (Hit Fix)

Grab Your Inhalers: Zack Snyder Directing ‘Superman’

Monday, October 4 by

Superman rescues mini Snyder. It doesn't matter why.
Zack Snyder is the lucky S.O.B. who has landed the directing gig for the Christopher Nolan-produced Superman: The Man of Steel. The Watchman and Sucker Punch director beat out Tony Scott, Jonathan Liebesman, Duncan Jones, Matt Reeves, Darren Aronofsky, Robert Zemeckis, and Nolan's own brother Jonah, who wrote the script. Daaaaaamn, that's cold, Chris. He's your brother. Your brother!
Family squabbles aside, Warner Bros. is a huge fan of Snyder. He's already directed three films for them, if you count the animated owl movie, and has proven he can handle major tent poles. Will Superman look awesome? Almost definitely. Will there be much emotion underneath the gloss and slow motion? We can only hope that Christopher and Jonah Nolan educate him in the way of story. That is if Jonah can quit giving him the raspberry for stealing his gig. (Deadline)

Universal Hires Tony Gilroy To Point Shaky Camera At Jason Bourne

Monday, October 4 by

"MEEOOWWW!!!! KITCH!! KITCH!!"
Last fall, it seemed like the Bourne series was sunk when Paul Greengrass pulled a bitchfit and removed himself and star Matt Damon from a fourth Bourne film. That doesn't seem to bother Universal too much. Despite the fact that he directed Duplicity, they've just hired Tony Gilroy to direct the next chapter. Gilroy, of course, wrote each of the previous films as well as the newest script. Not sure if they plan to use Damon, recast, shoot a prequel, or go the tried-and-true route of using a cardboard cut-out. You really can't tell the difference if you shake the camera around enough.

9 Films About Small Town Secrets

Monday, October 4 by

Every town has a secret. While most are trivial matters, like the true age of the oldest building or the amount of led in the drinking water, some secrets are so shocking that they must be hidden from the outside world at all costs.

In Wes Craven's new film, My Soul to Take, the town of Riverton, MA, has such a secret. It seems a serial killer who died years ago is somehow managing to kill teens from beyond the grave. That's the kind of information that, if made public, could decimate attendance at the annual Blueberry Festival. But when it comes to Hollywood towns, Riverton is not alone. Here are nine of our favorite fictional towns with secrets from the world of cinema.

Look at James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, and Rose Byrne Hold Umbrellas In ‘X-Men: First Class’

Monday, October 4 by

Today I have for you some boring pics from the set of X-Men: First Class. I take that back. If you love 60's styling and umbrellas then these pics are going to make your Monday. In them we see James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, and Rose Byrne as Charles Xavier, Mystique, and Moira McTaggart, respectively, braving the drizzle.
Yes, Xavier has hair and the ability to walk at this point in his life and Mystique is blue and clothed. The question we're all asking ourselves is, what will Jennifer Lawrence look like when she's, you know, all Mystique-y? Rebecca Romjin didn't look three-quarters bad wearing next to nothing. Of course, First Class takes place in the 60s so one might expect a fuller figure to be in vogue. God knows all of you would love to see Christina Hendricks show up in "Mad Men" with only blue pasties as her attire.

Will Arnett Almost Opened ‘Running Wilde’ With Suicide, Dishes On Future Episodes

Monday, October 4 by

Will Arnett as a billionaire is hilarious, right? “Running Wilde” shows each week how Steven Wilde (Arnett) blows his money in competition with fellow billionaire Fa’ad (Peter Serafinowicz), and creates a wacky surreal world of servants and caretakers. It was actually going to be a lot darker if Arnett had his original vision.

Blu-Ray Review: ‘Beauty and the Beast’

Monday, October 4 by

Disney started their Blu Ray venture with classic animation titles like Sleeping Beauty, which they restored to amazing color and detail. You could see the original brushstrokes and texture of the cels. Now they’re hitting their ‘90s era rebirth with the Oscar nominee Beauty and the Beast.

First Look At ‘The Thing’ Prequel Doesn’t Show The Thing. Or Does It?

Monday, October 4 by

With The Thing prequel headed to theaters whether you like it or not, it was only a matter of time before we got a look at how they're planning to diminish the memory of the excellent John Carpenter film. These pics show stars Joel Edgerton, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Mr. Eko, and Eric Christian Olsen running around the Norwegian camp and killing an off-screen The Thing with fire. Unless they're Things themselves. Now I don't know who to trust. Quick, say something un-Thing like!! (HitFix)

Blu-Ray Review: ‘American Beauty’

Monday, October 4 by

I’ve been concerned that some of the Dreamworks movies released on Blu-ray through Paramount have been underdeveloped examples of the format. Sure, the Spielberg movies were filmed with an intentionally grainy style, but that may only work when projected on film. It seems they have HD-worthy titles in their catalog though, as American Beauty shows off the format, and a decade-old film in new clarity and detail. If only the ‘90s viewers could see their suburban despair in this high quality.
