‘Hereafter’ Actress Mylène Jampanoï

Monday, October 18 by

The French are known for many things: their food, their revolution, the unusually short stature of their political leaders, etc. What they’re not known for (not yet anyway) is Mylène Jampanoï. A regular on the French cinematic scene, Jampanoï has yet to achieve namedrop status here in the States. But with a pair of eyes like those, it’s likely she’ll turn more than a few heads this weekend when she makes an appearance as a reporter in director Clint Eastwood’s upcoming supernatural drama Hereafter.
A word from Mylène: "I hate love stories."

‘Hellraiser’ Remake Picks Up A Director And Possibly Amber Heard

Monday, October 18 by

Let's raise a little hell.
Looks like Amber Heard is now Hell's go-to girl when it is breaking loose. Last week we all had a good laugh at the Drive Angry 3D trailer, starring Heard and Nicolas Cage, and today there's news that she may join the on-again, off-again Hellraiser remake. It's reported that lazily-named director Christian E. Christiansen has signed on, and that producers hope to get Heard for their new teen-friendly take on the franchise. We'll keep you posted as the more sanitzed Heckraiser heads toward a start date. (Bloody Disgusting)

Sigourney Weaver Offers to Write the ‘Alien’ Prequel

Monday, October 18 by

 
We know Ripley can’t be in the Alien prequel Ridley Scott is directing, but there may be a way for Sigourney Weaver to lend a hand. While promoting the Blu Ray release of the Alien saga and Avatar, Weaver gave her opinions on the Alien prequel.

“Certainly not as an actor but if they needed help with the story, I could probably help them,” Weaver said. “I have a good sense of what people appreciate in the series and what they don’t care about. So I hope they’ll ask me.”

The President of the United States of America Barack Obama To Appear On ‘Mythbusters’

Monday, October 18 by

Is the woman in the back right Adam's mom?
President Barack Obama has found some time in his busy schedule of running the Free World to offer up a brief appearance on "Mythbusters." On the episode which airs December 8th, "Obama challenges hosts Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman to prove the ancient Greek myth that scientist and polymath Archimedes set fire to an invading Roman fleet using only mirrors and the reflected rays of the sun."
As any avid "Mythbusters" fan knows, they are revisiting this myth for a second go, as I'm sure they were trolled the first time around on the show's message board. Obama most likely led the flame war so he could get Adam and Jamie to design a new weapons defense system on Discovery Channel's dime. …Suckers. (Deadline)

Megan Fox Has ‘Friends With Kids’

Monday, October 18 by

Meet your new mom.
Struggling to find her place in the post-Transformers world, Megan Fox has signed on for Jon Hamm's boo's comedy Friends With Kids. The movie steals a plotline from season three of "Murphy Brown," with director Jennifer Westfeldt starring alongside Adam Scott as a pair of friends who decide to forego the muckiness that comes with relationships and just skip ahead to the baby-making. That way, they're still free to date hotter people. Hotter people like Jon Hamm and Megan Fox it turns out.
"It's a very literate script and when Jen met with her, she thought Megan was spot on. When (Fox) picks the right part, she has tremendous value," said Cinetic Media's John Sloss, who is handling sales and had his fingers crossed behind his back during the interview. (THR)

Review: AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead’

Monday, October 18 by

I’m endlessly fascinated by zombie apocalypse stories, or any apocalypse stories for that matter. I just love to see the survivors scour the wastelands for supplies. The more supplies they have to gather, the better. There’ve been other post-apocalyptic shows but they didn’t have the “Mad Men” street cred. AMC’s zombie apocalypse show does.

‘Jackass 3D’ Actress Angie Simms

Monday, October 18 by

There is something distinctly rustic about Angie Simms. Slender, dark-eyed, and intense, she could easily slip into an American Apparel ad. With only a handful of acting credits to her name, it is unlikely that you’ve seen much of her yet, but a memorable appearance alongside Johnny Knoxville’s wrinkled alter ego in the new Jackass flick might just be her ticket into the limelight. 
A word from Angie: "I hate when cashiers get an attitude if ur on the phone while checking out. Really? u expect me to look u in the eye while I buy wet wipes?"

Aronofsky Watch: One More Step Closer to ‘Wolverine 2′

Monday, October 18 by

The Darren Doppler is tweakin' again. Aronofsky's deal to direct Wolverine 2 is so close to being a real thing that Fox is already talking about concessions of the un-Sour Patch Kids variety. The studio will allow Aronofsky to shoot the sound stage portions of the film in New York so the filmmaker and Hugh Jackman can still go home to their families at night. Production will begin in March, after Aronofsky has had time to pimp Black Swan to the press. After the New York scenes have been shot, the production will move to Japan, far, far away from any wives and kids. You know what that means… Both guys will finally have time to finish The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest novel. They can't wait to see how the Millenium Trilogy ends. (Deadline)

Mel Gibson Might Class Up ‘The Hangover 2′

Monday, October 18 by

Here's a rumor that might be crazy enough to be true. Page Six is reporting that Mel Gibson will have a cameo in The Hangover 2 as a tattoo artist. He'll shoot his scene on the Bangkok set at Warner Bros. before the production moves to Thailand at the end of the month. Can this really be happening? Does director Todd Phillips really want to take this chance? Should Mel Gibson be left around needles when the slightest peak at a skanky extra could set him off?
When Todd Phillips used Mike Tyson in The Hangover people took notice, so perhaps he's using the same strategy in the sequel. Afterall, Tyson bit a man's ear off, and Gibson hasn't done that yet as far as the public record is concerned. Maybe doing a cameo in an outlandish comedy is the perfect way to get back in people's good graces. After the world accepts him as a tattoo artist it might finally be ready to watch him tackle Jodie Foster's Beaver. (/Film)

Richard Branson, McG Set Sail for ‘Columbus’

Monday, October 18 by

What do you get the billionaire who has everything? A mediocre director with only one name, apparently.

Richard Branson, the owner of Virgin Airlines, is branching out into the film business (which will no doubt save money as far as in-flight movies are concerned). The corporate mogul is attempting to acquire the script for Columbus, which is described as a "300-style film about Christopher Columbus and his discovery of America." If the thought of an Indian kicking the explorer down a giant hole while yelling "This is the pre-Columbian Bahamas" doesn't float your boat, you're probably not going to like the fact that McG is attached to direct.

Branson is known for his love of extreme stunts. That being said, putting millions of dollars behind the man who made Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle is sure to get his adrenaline pumping. (Deadline)

Finally Get A Look At ‘Paul’ In New Teaser

Monday, October 18 by

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost have teamed up in the past to take on horror and the action genre, now they've set their sights on sci-fi. As this teaser for Paul will show you, the pair play nuuurrrdddssss who encounter an alien outside of Area 51.
Not much comedy is shown in this teaser and I need to applaud Greg Mottola's restraint in not having the alien play air guitar or perform a Black Eyed Peas song. Because that's the constant temptation and danger with working with CGI characters. Before you even realize it, you've veered into Alvin and the Chipmunks territory.
Check out the teaser after the jump…

Watch a Bootlegged ‘Scream 4′ Teaser Trailer

Monday, October 18 by

Good news for people who like horror movies and, or crappy bootlegs. Some guy took a video of the new teaser trailer for Scream 4 using his cellphone and posted it online for all to enjoy.

The footage was taken at Spike's Scream Awards, which I can only assume was held in Scream City, over on Scream street. You know, in the Scream district. At any rate, it's a little shaky, but it's still a first look, so quit complaining. (Cinema Blend)

Sigourney Weaver Defends the Controversial ‘Alien’ Sequels

Sunday, October 17 by

Every time the Alien series comes out again on DVD, or now Blu Ray, we always focus on Alien and Aliens. We kind of know everything there is to know about the classics. Wouldn’t it be interesting to really find out what went wrong with Alien 3 and Alien Resurrection?
