Fantastic Fest Review: ‘Let Me In’

Lovers of Let The Right One In, I have some good news for you. Matt Reeves didn’t eff up the movie you cherish so dearly. In fact, he might have…

Fantastic Fest Review: ‘Ong Bak 3′

Friday, September 24 by

I knew there were going to be problems with Ong Bak 3, but I figured as long as there were some fights it couldn’t be all bad. So they turned a sequel into a trilogy. So Tony Jaa ran off into the woods. As long as he knees some people in the head I’d be happy. Unfortunately, the problems with Ong Bak 3 are palpable.

New ‘Bill & Ted’ Definitely In The Works: Alex Winter Backs Keanu

Friday, September 24 by

Linkin Park?
Alex Winter has corroborated Keanu Reeves' story from earlier this week. William S. Preston, Esq. himself, told MTV that a third Bill & Ted film is in the works. They were struggling to find the right plot for a while, but now writers Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon have hatched a plot that they've begun writing.
The big issue, however, is what to do about George Carlin's character? Winter assures there's no way they would re-cast the part, so the trick now is to delicately work around his character. I'm hoping this means they'll use sophisticated Coke commercial CGI technology to bring him back to life. If I know Carlin, that's definitely what he would want to happen. (MTV)

Fantastic Fest ’10 Review: ‘Buried’

Thursday, September 23 by

I really love high concept movies. Cinema is most exciting when there’s some crazy idea that demands to be a movie. “Guy in a coffin” is one of those concepts.

The film really tests the audience’s limits immediately after the opening credits. I mean wow, it holds on for a long time. I’m sorry for folks in regular theaters where idiots will fill the effective silence with obnoxious chatter.

Christopher Nolan Narrows Search for ‘Superman’ Director

Thursday, September 23 by

Now that's just super!
Christopher Nolan and Emma Thomas, the producers behind the upcoming Superman film, have begun interviewing potential directors, Deadline is reporting. Nolan will reportedly submit his choice to Warner Bros. as early as next week.
On the list: Unstoppable's Tony Scott, Let Me In director Matt Reeves, Battle: Los Angeles helmer Jonathan Liebesman (who just got the Warner Bros/Legendary job of directing Clash of the Titans 2), Duncan Jones, who just directed Source Code, and Sucker Punch helmer Zack Snyder.
What? This list is a farce! No Crispin Glover? No David Lynch? No thank you, Mr. Nolan.

Emma Stone, Mia Wasikowska to Hotten Up ‘Spider-Man’ Reboot?

Thursday, September 23 by

Let the web slinging begin!
Director Marc Webb has reportedly auditioned Emma Stone for the part of Mary Jane in his upcoming Spider-Man reboot. Stone, who was most recently seen in Easy A, would take over for Kirsten Dunst who played Mary Jane in the first three films.

There are also reports that Webb is auditioning Mia Wasikowska for the part of Gwen Stacy, Spidey's first love. If true, it sounds like we might have a good old-fashioned cat-fight on our hands. Of course I'm referring to Puma (a.k.a. Thomas Fireheart), Spider-Man's nemesis with the ability to morph into a powerful humanoid mountain lion werecat! (Vulture)

Oliver Stone Gives Shia LaBeouf Much-Needed Direction

Thursday, September 23 by

"So, Shia. When I told you to 'f**k off,' what I really meant was 'f**k off.'"
Oliver Stone just sky-rocketed to the position of my favorite person on Earth with today's news that he told Shia LaBeouf to eff off. LaBeouf recounted the story at the Wall Street 2 premiere:
"We're in the Adirondacks, and Josh Brolin and I are shooting this bike scene, and at one point I say to Josh a line — 'You should look at yourself in the mirror first and see yourself. It might scare you.' I looked at the line for a couple of months and thought I'd go to Oliver and say, 'You look at the mirror and look at yourself. It's sort of repetitive. Why don't we just cut one of those? Why don't I say, Look at yourself. It might scare you.' This is Oliver verbatim. He looks at me and goes, 'I like mirror. I wrote Scarface. Go fuck yourself.'"
Oliver Stone, I officially forgive you for U-Turn. Now, could you please cast Justin Bieber in one of your films? (Vulture)

Emily Blunt Forced To Play ‘Engagement Games’

Thursday, September 23 by

With movies like Dan In Real Life, Gnomeo and Juliet, The Wolfman, and Gulliver's Travels on her resume, you'd think Emily Blunt would be a little less apt to take a role in a goofy movie. You'd think.
Nope, the actress is going to flush away all the street cred she earned starring in those flicks by signing on to Engagement Games. The plot reads like a Kate Hudson fever dream;  three sisters get engaged around the same time and compete for their mother's wedding ring. The father (probably played by Alan Alda) comes up with the idea of crowning the victor after a round of Family Olympics. May the best curler win! (Pajiba)

Christopher Guest Takes Aim at Retro Collectors

Thursday, September 23 by

The King of the "mockumentary" is back, and this time he's taking aim at retro collectors. Christopher Guest, the man behind Waiting for Guffman and Best in Show, is returning to his director's chair, and he's bringing along Harry Shearer and Michael McKean.
Guest, Shearer and McKean are putting their heads together to make a movie about the world of retro collectors; people who ferret out such things as old comic books, Barbie dolls, vintage magazine ads, vinyl 45-rpm singles, or even – ick! – Charles Manson song lyrics written on Kleenex. There’s a massive underground of collectors who would do the Borgia’s proud as they scheme and double-cross to possess the item they crave.
While there has been no confirmation that this is, in fact, a mockumentary, chances are high. If so, will it do as well as the Casey Affleck/Joaquin Phoenix mockumentary, I'm Still Here, which has grossed an estimated $259,290? Only time will tell. (WOW via MovieFone)

“Hawaii Five-0″ Actress Grace Park

Thursday, September 23 by

From the space odysseys of "Battlestar Galactica" to the waves of the new "Hawaii Five-0," Grace Park has given TV shows a much needed tough babe punch. Park shows with her past performances that beauty and fists can go hand in hand with making you one of the coolest actors to look out for in the future.
A word from Grace: "I'm going make a movie one day and make like 25 million dollars."

‘Goodfellas’: The TV Series? ‘Goodfellas’: The TV Series.

Goodfellas: The Sneaker
Looks like "Jersey Shore," "Boardwalk Empire," and "Cake Boss" are going to have to think twice if any were hoping to be the heir apparent to the "Sopranos" legacy. Deadline reports today that there are plans underway for a Goodfellas television series.
Quick question, why? The original is a high watermark in the world of film, and even if the show turns out to be primo, it can't measure up to its predecessor. The only way to do this right, is a longshot. They need to cast Ray Liotta. It's not like he won't do television. His turn as Principal Luger in "Hannah Montana" Season Four, Episode Two "Hannah Montana to the Principal's Office" proved that.

9 Film Characters Who Were Buried Alive

Thursday, September 23 by

Aside from sitting through a Tyler Perry movie marathon, what’s more horrifying than the thought of being buried alive? OK, fine; watching Love, Actually. But you get my point. Being put underground and left for dead is a horrifying prospect. Which is what makes the new film, Buried, so intriguing.
The premise is simple: a man, played by Ryan Reynolds, wakes up six-feet underground with nothing but a lighter, a knife, a cell phone, and no recollection of how he got there. In fact, the premise is so simple that it doesn’t seem like it could carry a feature film. But based on the positive reviews thus far, the filmmakers found a way to make a compelling movie about a man in a box.
In honor of this achievement, we’ve put together a list of nine classic “buried alive” movies. Enjoy, or so help me God, I will put you in the ground while you’re still breathing.

Sesame Street’s ‘True Blood’ Parody Learns Ya Rhyming

Thursday, September 23 by

Why "Sesame Street" made a "True Blood" parody entitled "True Mud" is beyond me. I'm assuming it caters to moms who are familiar with the HBO series, and little kids whose parents have no problem exposing their spawn to vampire hate sex. That's progressive for a children's show.
Check out the video of "True Mud" after the jump. Then maybe after you can tell me what the hell True Mud is and why grouches require it. And if grouches do require it, why isn't Oscar THE Grouch the one asking for it instead of some Southern emo puppet?
