‘Better With You’ Actress Joanna Garcia

Tuesday, September 28 by

 
Joanna Garcia is one classy babe who appeals to lovers of blondes, redheads, and brunettes. She was originally a member of 'The Midnight Society' for two seasons on Nickelodeon's "Are You Afraid of the Dark?" Joanna has since graduated from the popular Nick show to the new CBS "Friends"-like sitcom "Better With You."
A word from Joanna: "Whenever I'm belting out a song, my boyfriend asks me to stop. He's like, Please, no."

First Episode of ‘Dexter’ Season 5

Tuesday, September 28 by

I'm providing this for all you folks who are unfortunate enough to have to steal cable from a person who doesn't subscribe to Showtime. The first episode of the new season of "Dexter" may have moved slower than some prefer, but I guarantee you it's setting up awesome stuff to come. I've seen through episode three. You won't be disappointed. Let me know what you think in the comments section.

Fantastic Fest Review: ‘Rubber’

Tuesday, September 28 by

Rubber became a Cannes phenomenon based on its outrageous premise. That alone carried it through Fantastic Fest where its first screening sold out, and I finally made it into the second, which also sold out.

All you need to know is that it is about a tire that kills people. That is enough to get you to see Rubber. That’s certainly all I needed to hear. I would watch a trilogy about killer tires.

Natalie Portman Almost Totally Up For A Sequel To ‘The Professional’

Tuesday, September 28 by

Hey, do you guys wanna see a sequel to The Professional? Well, too bads. It's scripted and good to go and Natalie Portman wants it to happen (although she's refused to read it), but it's just one of those things that will probably never come together. The obstacle here is Luc Besson. Portman will only take part in the sequel if the semi-retired director steps behind the lens, but he only seems interested in crapping out more Transporter films.
To further impede production, Columbiana director and "Ben 10" villian Olivier Megaton says that the company who holds the rights has no interest in a sequel. Which causes me to question, why do they hate awesome? (MTV)

Quentin Tarantino’s Editor Sally Menke Found Dead

Tuesday, September 28 by

Quentin Tarantino's long time editor Sally Menke was found dead at 56 years old in Beachwood Canyon in Los Angeles. Not all the details are in yet, but Menke apparently went for a hike yesterday in the 113 degree weather with her dog and when she didn't return her friends got worried. The police searched the area and found her body in a ravine.
Menke has collaborated with Tarantino since Reservoir Dogs and undoubtedly helped establish the director's unique style. I'd even go so far as to say she's the reason we see twenty minute scenes in his films instead of 120 minute scenes. Will another editor be able to reign Tarantino in? Only time will tell. Our thoughts are with Sally's family and whomever is blotting the tears off of Tarantino's chin. (LATimes)

Gore Verbinski Might Direct ‘The Lone Ranger’

Tuesday, September 28 by

Gore Verbinski has his sights on Tim Burton's Guinness World Record. The director has teamed with Johnny Depp on three Pirates Of The Caribbean films as well as the animated Rango. Now, there are rumors that they'll work together again with Verbinski helming Depp's upcoming The Lone Ranger.
Nothing official has been announced, but it's believed this news leaked in advance of Disney's big press event later this week. If true, this is sure to upset the execs over at the Mouse House. They rented all those chairs and everything. Just great. (Deadline)

It’s a Bird! It’s a Plane! It’s Darren Aronofsky Directing Superman?

Tuesday, September 28 by

Director Darren Aronofsky is on the list of possible diectors for Christopher Nolan's upcoming Superman project, Heat Vision is reporting. Aronofsky joins a group that already includes Duncan Jones, Tony Scott and Matt Reeves.
But with Aronofsky in the running, there is also talk that another director has been ruled out…
Ben Affleck, who is soaring after The Town became both a critical and commercial hit, and who actually played superman (or at least the man who became known for him, George Reeves) in Hollywoodland, took a meeting about possibly taking the job, but has apparently moved on to other things.
Something tells me that Affleck moving on to other things before hearing back from the producers is a lot like me moving on with my love life before hearing back from Salma Hayek…or those lawyers, of hers. (Empire Online)

The ‘Yogi Bear’ Trailer Will Make You Sad

Tuesday, September 28 by

Watching the Yogi Bear trailer made me sad. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m too old to appreciate the film, or because a beloved memory from my childhood is…

Maggie Grace To Catfight Kristen Stewart In ‘Twilight: Breaking Dawn’

Monday, September 27 by

Someone tell this girl how chairs work.
Take off your press-ons, ladies. Things are about to get rowdy. Taken takee Maggie Grace has been cast as Bella's nemesis Irina in Twilight: Breaking Dawn. My girlfriend hasn't updated me yet on the next installment so I'll let Deadline do the honors:
Irina is a member of the Denali coven, considered cousins to the Cullen clan as the only other "vegetarian" vampire group. When Irina blames the Cullens for the death of her lover, her actions set in motion a terrifying chain of events.
And by terrifying they mean sparkly. The film is being directed by Bill Condon and released in two parts because that means more money. The first part comes out November 18, 2011 and the second part November 16, 2012. After that, Twihards dismember a highly populated metropolis.

Coen Bros. ‘True Grit’ Teaser Promises Retribution

Monday, September 27 by

The teaser for Joel and Ethan Coen's True Grit just rode into town, and it looks like a good one. The action follows Hailee Steinfeld's Mattie Ross as she teams with Jeff Bridges to hunt down the coward that killed her pappy. You might be quick to say that the Coens are trying to recapture the magic of No Country For Old Men, but that I really don't see the similarities. For instance, this teaser keeps it fresh with sun-bleached Western scenery, gunfights, Josh Brolin, and dorky haircuts. Oh.
Check out the teaser after the jump…

5 Awesome Max Weinberg PSAs

Monday, September 27 by

Max Weinberg, Conan O'Brien's band leader for the past 17 years, won't be following the red headed host to his new gig on TBS. The split was ammicable and both parties hope they can get together in the future for a staring contest or some other sketch where Max talks about his affinity for hookers.
During Max Weinberg's time on "Late Night" he created some inspirational and eye-opening public service announcements for NBC. He took "The More You Know" to a dark and dangerous place. I thought I'd share a few of his best moments now. You might learn a little thing or two. About hookers.

Greg Berlanti Discusses His Gritty Take On ‘The Flash’

Monday, September 27 by

Green Lantern producer and co-writer Greg Berlanti offered up some info about how he's handling the gritty world of The Flash. Also, The Flash is going to be gritty now.
Flash' as we're getting into it is interesting, too. Though Barry Allen was a little lighter in the comic, I think because of the nature that he was a CSI and moved in this world of crime before this stuff happened. I think it's tonally somewhere in between 'GL' and 'Dark Knight.' It's actually a little bit darker than when we were working on ('GL'), because you're dealing with somebody who is already a crimefighter in a world of those kinds of criminals and that kind of murder and homicide. I find you talk a lot about different films when you're working on a film, and we spend a lot more time talking about 'Se7en' or 'The Silence of the Lambs' as we construct that part of Barry's world, then I thought when we got into it. It helps balance a guy in a red suit who runs really fast.
He's totally right. I've always said that Se7en and The Silence of the Lambs were okay movies, but y'know what would make them great movies? The presence of the Flash. In fact, I feel that Zodiac's greatest failing was its absence of a red guy in a suit who runs really fast. That and the fact that pretty much nothing happened in it. (SuperheroHype)

Patton Oswalt In For Jason Reitman’s ‘Young Adult’, Patrick Wilson In Talks

Monday, September 27 by

Patton Oswalt has signed on to play Charlize Theron's chubby best friend in Young Adult. Jason Reitman and Diablo Cody, who last worked together on Juno, are teaming up again for the film about a woman who returns to her high school town to basically stalk her old boyfriend like she's Marky Mark. The guy's got a wife and kid now though, so he's not interested in Charlize. Not interested? His Mrs. must do crazy sh*t in the sack.
Josh Brolin decided he couldn't pretend Charlize isn't worth leaving his wife for and now Patrick Wilson is in talks for the role. Seems like a missed opportunity to put Wilson in a fat suit and cast him as the best friend and Oswalt as the ex-boyfriend. I'd love to watch Charlize beg Oswalt to have sex with her and he looks up at her with stern eyes and proclaims, "No, Ugly!" (/Film)
