Thursday, October 28 by

Dat ass.
This morning I posted Chris Evans as Captain America: The First Avenger looking all stoic on the cover of Entertainment Weekly. Now I have more pictures for your eyeballs. The above pic focuses on Captain America's ass, or shield if you'd prefer. After the jump, check out Hugo Weaving as the early incarnation of Red Skull and Chris Evans shirtless **splashes glass of water on face**

9 Mel Gibson Cameos We’d Like to See

Thursday, October 28 by

As you probably know, Mel Gibson's cameo in The Hangover 2 fell through, and the role was given to Liam Neeson. While that is sad news, there's no reason for Mel to sweat it. There are pleanty of blockbusters in production, any one of which could help jump-start his scandal plagued career. We went ahead and did some research, and narrowed it down to nine upcoming films that Mel should focus on.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
While they have many adult fans, the Harry Potter films are for children. Children don't watch TMZ, so what better way for Mel to slip under the radar than with a cameo in the Deathly Hallows. It's a great plan, unless Mel's private church considers it witchcraft.

Paul Haggis Might Go To Jail For ‘Celda 211′ Remake

Thursday, October 28 by

This can only end poorly.
Paul Haggis seems to be getting a lot of work despite telling Scientology to back the eff off. Not one to rest on the laurels of writing The Equalizer for the big screen, Paul Haggis is now looking to adapt the Spanish film Celda 211. The film tells the story of a rookie prison guard who, mistaken for a prisoner, is locked in with the inmates during a riot. To survive, he needs to pose as a prisoner and befriend the uprising's leader. Then he has to lie and say he enjoyed Crash. Nobody said prison was easy.
The deal is not in place yet, but the idea is to have Haggis write and possibly direct. He's untested as a director in the action genre, so it may be a good idea to see how his recent The Next Three Days plays out before stitching his name on the back of the tall chair. The last thing you want to do is sew through canvas twice. (Deadline)

Judd Apatow’s Next Film Set for June 1, 2012

Thursday, October 28 by

We have no idea what it's about or who will be in it, but Judd Apatow's next directorial effort will hit theaters June 1, 2012. That leaves him less than 20 months to finish the script and work out scheduling conflicts for Seth Rogen, Jason Segal, Jonah Hill, Paul Rudd, Martin Starr, Romany Malco, Elizabeth Banks, Jay Baruchel, and wife, Leslie Mann. Unfortunately the guy from 40-Year-Old Virgin who in real life stabbed his wife to death is unavailable due to his jail sentence. (Deadline)

‘Raising Hope’ Actress Bijou Phillips

Thursday, October 28 by

Bijou Phillips is no stranger to the limelight. The daughter of ’60s folk messiah John Phillips (front man of The Mamas and the Papas for all you musical laymen out there), the young Phillips took up the role of New York City it-girl with all the tabloid-pumping charisma of a fledgling boehmian celebutante. Now an established actress with big-screen cred and a wealth of critical acclaim under her belt, Phillips this year made a pair of impactful guest appearances in Fox’s new Tuesday night sitcom “Raising Hope.”
A word from Bijou: "I do what I want."

‘Mission: Impossible 4′ Officially Called ‘Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol’, Not a Video Game

Thursday, October 28 by

The official title of Mission: Impossible 4 is Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, and no, Tom Clancy's name does not preceed that. Stars Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner, Paula Patton and director Brad Bird announced the news at a press conference in Dubai. They also said they'll be doing a lot of filming in Dubai, including on the world's tallest building, Burj Khalifa. Said Tom Cruise, "I’ll be spending many days, many hours on the side of this building, I can’t give you details, but I will be up there." Not sure if his being up there has to do with the movie, or that he heard Katie was on the ground looking for him. (Collider)

Zombies And Football Combine For ‘Play Dead’

Thursday, October 28 by

For those worried that the last bit of blood had been squeezed out of the zombie stone, you can stop worrying. It has. The novel Play Dead has been optioned to be a movie we don't need. It tells the story of a high school football team who is murdered by the competition. Luckily, a local witch is a huge fan of the team and resurrects them. Mark Canton, producer of Land Of The Dead, has bought the rights and hired Joe Schreiber to write.
So, it's come to that. A zombie football movie. A bunch of stiff-legged, slow-paced, uncoordinated, brain dead players ambling up and down the field. If the filmmakers are trying to save a dime, they should just edit in footage of the Buffalo Bills. (Variety)

First Official Pic of Chris Evans as Captain America

Thursday, October 28 by

That's not morning wood you're sporting. It's an excitement boner from laying eyes on this first official pic of Chris Evans in his tight, slick Captain America costume from the new issue of EW. Look at him with his star and shield and strappy thingies. He's like a cigar store Indian without the headdress, and more patriotic rags. I'm sure we'll see a teaser trailer soon, as the movie hits theaters July 22, 2011, but for now you'll have to do with just the pic, like old school Internet porn days.

‘Twilight: Breaking Dawn’ Is a Lot of ‘Bunk’

Thursday, October 28 by

Mother f**ker!
Outside of a child/parent scenario, fans of "The Wire" don't usually intermingle with fans of the Twilight films. Well that's all about to change. Actually, it probably won't change at all, but fans of "The Wire" might be interested in the fact that Wendell Pierce (a.k.a. "Bunk" Moreland) will appear in Twilight: Breaking Dawn. Then again, probably not.

I haven't been this excited since Pierce made a cameo on "Tim and Eric." Besides, I think it makes sense to have a homicide detective in a film about the undead…right? Either way, I'm not going to watch. Sorry, Bunk. (Empire Online)

Endless Casting Speculation: ‘Spider-Man’s’ Boss Edition

Thursday, October 28 by

Now that Spider-Man has a love interest and a reptilian nemesis, it's time to figure out who will play his comically gruff boss. J.K. Simmons owned the role of J. Jonah Jameson in Sam Raimi's Spidey films, but won't be returning for the high school-based reboot. Which means Hollywood's silverhairs are all up for the part.
It's reported that a dozen or so actors are being discussed for the part (which will inevitably go to Liam Neeson, everything goes to Liam Neeson), including "Mad Men's" John Slattery and every cowboy movie ever's Sam Elliott. Hopefully the search will continue because I can't see either of these guys in the role. Slattery's too pretty and Sam Elliott's moustache (though awesome) is just too much for this film to handle. Personally, I'd like to see Mel Gibson in the role. He's looking to trick us into liking him again and dude is seriously good at yelling. Like Olympics good at it.
Until next time true believers, when we'll figure out who the hell is going to play Robbie. Stay near a phone guy who played Marcus on "Alias." (What's Playing)

Watch a Guy with a Handgun Fight a Ten-Story Tall Alien in ‘Skyline’ (Video)

Thursday, October 28 by

I'm not exactly a weapons expert, nor do I know the first thing about armed combat. To make matters worse, I know next to nothing when it comes to protecting myself during an alien invasion. But what I do know is that if a creature that's as big as my apartment complex wants to pick a fight, I'm probably not going to stick around and throw down, especially if my only weapon is a handgun. But that sort of logic won't get your very far in this new Skyline clip, and it's probably for the best since the scene still looks pretty badass. (Dread Central)

Pic of Mel Gibson as Tattoo Artist

Wednesday, October 27 by

Technically he's Scott the Body Piercer from Father's Day, but we didn't need to see it again in The Hangover 2. Did I just blow your mind, or did you actually remember Father's Day? Thanks to Benji C. for the hookup.

Zach Galifianakis Might Join Muppet Movie

Wednesday, October 27 by

Zach Galifianakis, everyone's favorite bearded comedian at the moment, is in talks to appear in the upcoming Muppet movie as a person, even though he looks a helluva lot like Fozzy Bear. Robert Downey Jr. dropped the casting news during a press interview for Due Date. That Downey. He's incorrigable.
Galifianakis would join Jason Segel, Amy Adams, Rashida Jones, and Chris Cooper, who have all already been cast. The new film, directed by James Bobin, will "take place within a showbiz setting and follow the Muppets as they try to save their studio from a greedy oil baron (Cooper) who wants to dig for oil. Segel is set to play the lead who reunites the Muppets for one last show to save the studio; Adams is his girlfriend, while Jones will play an ABC executive." No word yet on what Galifianakis would play. Maybe a film director. It's time he put that beard to good use. (ThePlaylist)

‘Goodfellas’ TV Series Will Be A Prequel, Martin Scorsese-y

Wednesday, October 27 by

The closest I ever want to get to Martin Scorsese's face.

Got some more info about that Goodfellas television series that's being made for $ome rea$on. It's now reported that Martin Scorsese will be involved in some way or another. It seems like producers got worried by the backlash to the news and decided they needed Martin's stamp on this. Whether he'll write, produce, direct, or show up on set to sign-out walkie talkies is unclear at this point.
Also of note is that the show will be a prequel to the classic film, focusing on Henry Hill's childhood years. So it will be like "Brooklyn Bridge" but instead of whimsical accounts of playing stickball on Front Street and Marion Ross, it will be whimsical accounts of using a broomstick to bash in the face of the neighborhood chooch. Ahhh, the old neighborhood. (via /Film)

Robert Downey Jr. Totally Cool With ‘Iron Man’ at Disney

Wednesday, October 27 by

Robert Downey, Jr. is cool with the news that Disney will release his next Iron Man movie. Disney is exercising their control of Marvel to release Iron Man 3 and The Avengers. At a press conference for his latest film, Due Date, Downey was enthusiastic about the Marvel developments.

“Love it!” Downey exclaimed. “What’s that mean?”
