Matthew Broderick and Casey Affleck Are In ‘Tower Heist’ Too

Tuesday, October 26 by

Tower Heist keeps inching closer to becoming a movie by picking up talent left and right. Matthew Broderick is now on board to play a Wall Street suit who joins Ben Stiller in the plot to get revenge against Alan Alda's Madoff-like character. Fake documentarian Casey Affleck is also joining up as Stiller's best friend/voice of reason. He'll help complicate the would-be robbery when he takes a firm stance against it. Judd Hirsch will play an unspecified role in the film. Let's just assume he'll play an old school New Yorker. Or a cop. Or a guy who looks like a Cookie Puss ice cream cake.

The resemblance is quite haunting. (via /Film)

‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows’ Featurette Looks Back and Forward

Tuesday, October 26 by

I know, I know, more Harry Potter stuff, but it's always trending and Daddy needs pageviews. Today I have for you a Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows featurette that looks back at young, impressionable Harry and forward at mature, constantly yelling Harry. The raising of his voice means he's no longer taking sh*t from anyone. I'm also certain that wand is a metaphor for his penis, or something.
Anyhoos, I'm glad the series continues to get darker as it progresses. Tis a shame it's all coming to an end next year, though. And if you think you're sad, take a moment to consider the Warner Bros. execs. Harry Potter raked in a bona fide billion dollars annually. Batman only keeps that water tower half-full.

Charlie Sheen Pulls A Charlie Sheen In New York Hotel

Tuesday, October 26 by

"Check please!"
Don't ask Charlie Sheen about his vacation, you guys. Let's just say, "It was relaxing." Relaxing meaning he had an allergic reaction to some medicine that caused him to strip naked, scream at the top of his lungs, trash a room in New York's famed Plaza Hotel, and cause a naked prostitute to seek shelter in the closet. He also checked out Ground Zero.
So you'd be right to assume that he's in a lot of trouble. Except that you'd be wrong. TV's highest paid star is walking away scott-free from the entire incident.
"…as of now Sheen will not face any criminal charges for trashing his room at New York's venerable Plaza Hotel. The hotel hasn't come forward to lodge any complaint against the star, either."
What do you have to do to offend the Plaza? Show your **** to Eloise? (E!)

‘Saw 3D’ Actress Gina Holden

Tuesday, October 26 by

At some point in the new Saw flick, Gina Holden will be chained to a giant metal death machine. How she gets there, whether she survives, and how convincingly she plays the nuanced role of “hot girl in mortal peril” remain to be seen. In any case, though, we're pretty sure she’ll look good doing it.
A word from Gina: "I just loved performing. I wanted to my whole life."

James Franco Talks ‘Rise of the Apes’

Tuesday, October 26 by

The original Planet of the Apes rode on the then-groundbreaking makeup effects and a shocker ending. The 2001 “re-imagining” tried to right on action and special effects. The latest version of the Apes story is going to live or die on pure acting. Andy Serkis is playing Caesar, the chimpanzee who learns to talk and may or may not rise to dominate humans. Spoiler alert, the movie’s called Rise of the Apes and it stars James Franco as… the human. (The part he was born to play, baby!)

Warner Bros. Explores Their ‘ACME Warehouse’

Tuesday, October 26 by

Warner Bros. has recently been getting all jazzed up about their Looney Tunes properties. The studio is producing new 3D shorts for the big screen, and Mike Myers has signed on to voice stinky, sexually aggressive skunk Pepe Le Pew. Now WB has bought a pitch for a film that centers on the ACME Warehouse, the outlet where Wile E. Coyote frequently shops.
There aren't many details about the Kevin and Dan Hageman pitch, but as you can tell from the above pic, there are plenty of products to explore. Of course, WB could instead decide to capitalize on the world's overwhelming fascination with the history of the anvil. A three hour documentary on the device most often used by animated characters to murder other animated characters would get butts in the seats, no question. (THR)

First Trailer For Justin Bieber’s Stupid Biopic ‘Never Say Never’

Tuesday, October 26 by

Ritual pre-concert round of Peek-a-boo.
And now for the part of the job I hate the most — having a hand in promoting Justin Bieber. But that's the job, and I knew that full well when I agreed to $4.25 an hour. Anyhow, the little sh*t and new "Punk'd" host is back with Never Say Never, a "biopic" about the time Justin filmed a concert in New York last month. This is mixed with behind the scenes footage, home movies, and interviews with his manager, who says only nice things for fear of being punched in the balls again.
You really did it Justin, even though "they" said you couldn't. Help yourself to a hard-earned juicebox.

New ‘Tron Legacy’ Trailer For Daft Punk Groupies

Tuesday, October 26 by

Bit by bit, Disney is revealing more of the Daft Punk-composed soundtrack for the upcoming Tron Legacy. The unofficial campaign name is Operation: Tron Legacy Blue Balls, as I can only take so much teasing before it starts to get painful.
In this new music-centered trailer, footage you've already seen is backed with the new Daft Punk track, "Derezzed." We've heard "The Game Has Changed," which is more of a "getting pumped to enter an arena" track. "Derezzed" is a more of a "cut his f*cking head off with that light disc!" track. It bumps, yo.

10 Best ‘Saw’ Traps Of All Time

Tuesday, October 26 by

As anyone who has seen the Saw films will tell you, that Jigsaw guy is a real jerk. Once a successful engineer with a loving wife, John Kramer morphed into a sadistic serial killer after he was diagnosed with inoperable cancer. Talk about being self-absorbed. That’s called a YP, Jigsaw: your problem, not mine.

But regardless of how you feel about Jigsaw personally, you have to admit he’s a clever guy. Sure, maybe his traps (or “games”) are horribly cruel and unnecessarily elaborate, but damn it if they aren’t impressive. Honestly, when someone is wearing a reverse-bear trap on their mouth, it’s hard to look away. With that in mind, here are 10 of Jigsaw’s greatest traps. (Spoilers Ahead) Also, be sure and take our survey at the bottom to vote for YOUR favorite trap, and sound off in the comment section.

‘Indiana Jones’ May Get the 3D Treatment

Tuesday, October 26 by

That looks amazing!
George Lucas has been down in the dumps, suffering form what psychologists call "Avatar Envy." In order to combat the crippling mental illness, the famed director ordered the entire Star Wars saga converted to 3D. Rumor has it that this treatment failed to have the desired effect, so Lucas is taking the 3D axe to the Indiana Jones films, as well.

If the rumors are true, we should be getting an official announcement sometime next month. If the rumors are untrue, I'll be giving the Internet a stern talking to about spreading gossip. (Blue Sky Disney via First Showing)

No ‘Khan’ Do for ‘Star Trek 2′

Tuesday, October 26 by

Big news for people who cherish their virginity: Star Trek 2 will not feature Khan Noonien Singh (a.k.a. Khan) as the villain. At least that's what everyone else seems to be saying, even though it's all based on an unnamed "source" who emailed Badass News. But if not Khan, who will be the antagonist?
"The e-mail read, “It’s definitely a character that will make fans of [The Original Series] excited. Think along the lines of Harry Mudd or Trelane or Gary Mitchell or the Talosians or the Horta. Actually it’s one of those that I named.”
Those are all fine choices, but I really feel like they should be utilizing the evil whales from Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. (Latino Review)

Comedy Central Giving Us More ‘Waiting’

Tuesday, October 26 by

You see, the olives are meant to represent her boobs.
Good news everybody. Comedy Central may have found something to replace "Chappelle's Show" in its line-up. Or at least something to bookend their constant screenings of Waiting and Still Waiting.
That's right. Waiting, the film about Ryan Reynolds's flirty waiter, is becoming a half-hour long series. It's okay to groan "Party Down" fans. Your pain is felt. (Deadline)

Mark Wahlberg Snuggles Up With Bear For Seth MacFarlane’s ‘Ted’

Monday, October 25 by

Sweet ink, boys.
Mark Wahlberg is in talks to star alongside a life-sized teddy bear in Seth MacFarlane's directorial debut, Ted. The R-rated comedy, also written by MacFarlane and "Family Guy" buds Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild, follows a normal Boston grown up guy who's still best friends with his childhood teddy bear that he wished would come to life, and it did. The bear however is a big slacker pain in the ass now and keeps Wahlberg's character from committing to adulthood.
MacFarlane will provide the voice of the bear, which will be created through the magic of computers. I'm sure Dan Aykroyd would be more than happy to offer advice on voicing a CG bear. He's got that skill down pat. I also can't end this post without acknowledging that Ted has the exact same premise as Drop Dead Fred. If you've never seen that movie, do yourself a favor and go out and SMASH A COPY. (Deadline)

‘Little Fockers’ One-Sheets Turn Back Hands Of Time

Monday, October 25 by

Daaaaamn, De Niro. You look gooooooood. In these new Little Fockers character one-sheets, all signs of aging have been Photoshopped away from the stars' faces. Notice how Robert De Niro doesn't have any lines on his forehead. Even newborns have those. The guy is 67-years-old. Leave some lines on there so he doesn't look like a cyborg! I'm surprised they didn't airbrush his mole off while they were at it. It's a huge deterrent for audiences. Why would anyone want to see a movie full of actors with imperfections? I'll stay home and watch "Gossip Girl," thank you very much.
