Luke Perry at Dragon Con

Wednesday, October 20 by

If you look really close, you can see a tear drop forming in the corner of his eye. It wasn't worth the appearance fee, was it, Perry?

William H. Macy Slurs His V.O. In Showtime’s ‘Shameless’ Trailer

Wednesday, October 20 by

Showtime has dropped the trailer for their new drama "Shameless," and William H. Macy can't help from slurring the voiceover. In the series, Macy plays an alcoholic father to a slew of Chicagoan kids. Emmy Rossum appears to be the one keeping the family afloat and looking adorable in the process.
The Gallagher clan should fit in nicely with the rest of Showtime's dysfunctional families, such as the Botwins on "Weeds" and the Peytons on "Nurse Jackie." Drugs, booze, and sex always play a major part in their series, not to mention serial killing in "Dexter." Does Showtime know how to party or what?!
"Shameless" premieres January 9, 2011 at 10PM EST.

Robert Downey Jr. To Battle Earthquakes In ‘Emergency’

Wednesday, October 20 by

Before 'Iron Man' there was 'The Shaggy Dog'. Thank God for 'Iron Man'.
Columbia Pictures have picked up the rights to The Game author Neil Strauss's book Emergency!: This Book Will Save Your Life. Robert Downey Jr. is on board to produce and possibly star in the film version that will also save your life.
The book details the three years that Strauss spent in the West Indies, educating himself to be able to handle any disaster situation. Everything from terror attacks to earthquakes to when best pal Mystery misplaces his furry top hat. I don't know why he'd have to travel to the West Indies for that. A few weeks with Ted Nugent should have been all he needed. Allan Loeb is writing the screenplay, which makes perfect sense. Who better to save your life than the guy who gets laid using magic tricks, the guy who wrote Kevin James's fart jokes, and the guy who co-starred with Tim Allen in The Shaggy Dog?

Watch the Live Coco Cam RIGHT NOW

Wednesday, October 20 by

To promote his new talk show "Conan" on TBS, Conan O'Brien has set up a live web cam in the Team Coco offices. As you can see from the above screen grab, crazy sh*t is going down. I've been watching it for awhile now and it's oddly fascinating. There has been an 80's aerobics class, a public speaker, and a black man holding up a sign that says "I See White People!!!" I personally just like watching the employees walk by. It makes me feel like I'm part of a nurturing office environment. Not this damp cellar they call SJ Headquarters.
The Live Coco Cam is live until tomorrow at 1PM ET/10AM PT. Check it out HERE.

Anthony Hopkins Vs. The Devil In ‘The Rite’ Trailer

Wednesday, October 20 by

The trailer for The Rite looks like a fairly standard exorcism movie at first. It's got a young priest, Anthony Hopkins as an old priest, freaky-deaky kids, and people getting hit by cars. Then, all of a sudden, the Vatican whips out Minority Report technology. How long have they had that and why don't they share? Don't they know how many missing children we could help locate using that technology? Unless…

‘Cars 2′ Teaser and Concept Art

Wednesday, October 20 by

Pixar has dropped a teaser trailer for Cars 2 that gives away little to nothing. One thing is for certain: lasers could possibly be involved in the sequel. Mater and McQueen are traveling the world this time around, getting into intrigue, thrills, and lasers. John Lasseter is directing again with help from Ratatouille producer Brad Lewis.
Cars 2 races into theaters June 24, 2011
Check out the teaser and some concept art below.

‘Castle’ Actress Stana Katic Round 2

Wednesday, October 20 by

She's so nice we had to do her twice. Being handcuffed and thrown into the back of a cop car wouldn’t be too bad, provided of course that Stana Katic would be the arresting officer. It’s a good bet, in fact, that a significant number of men would go out of their way to break the law in her immediate vicinity, hoping for the chance to have a cup of coffee with her — even if it was being served out of Styrofoam cups in a cramped interrogation room. Until that day, we’ll just have to make do with Katic’s pretend-cop persona in ABC’s “Castle.”

A word from Stana: “Men should never marry their muse. It ruins the illusion.”

Gabourey Sidibe and Michael Pena Grab Roles In ‘Tower Heist’

Wednesday, October 20 by

He can't resist a photo op.
The 1st Assistant Camera on Brett Ratner's The Tower Heist had better not forget to put a long lens on the order. Precious star Gabourey Sidibe has picked up an unknown role on the film, as has "Eastbound and Down's" very funny Michael Pena.
They'll join Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy in the film that pits the little guy against a crooked Bernie Madoff type played by Alan Alda. Other than that, we don't have a lot of details. But now we know that the heist most likely won't involve taking the stairs. And before you chastise me in the comments section for making a fat joke at Sidibe's expense, you should know it was a lazy joke at Pena's expense. And no, not because he's Mexican. Man, I can't win with you guys. (Deadline)

Ridley Scott Could Go Back to Rubber Suits for ‘Alien’ Prequel

Wednesday, October 20 by

Alien was made back in the good old days when monsters were guys in rubber suits. If Ridley Scott is making a prequel to Alien, it would make sense to go back to the practical effects. It turns out the director's been consulting with Avatar creature designer Neville Page. Scott’s still not sold on that performance capture hocus pocus.

“I just recently was talking to Ridley Scott,” Page said at a media even for the Blu-Ray release of Avatar. “He brought up a really interesting point about how the real rubber suits for him are still a preference because you get stuff that you’re forced to have be real. As a result, it feels real on camera or in camera. I thought, ‘Wait a minute, I thought we were doing everything digital now.’ Just like us, a director’s going to use whatever tools make sense for the end result.”

That’s food for thought for Ridley Scott. Dude, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Bring back the rubber suit. Page said Scott was just gathering information to weigh his options.

“He was talking more theoretical in regards to filmmaking and his experience on the original. It’s a choice of now moving forward, when you can do an alien fully digital, is that what he would do?”

What do you think? Wouldn’t it be great to see an old school alien in the Alien prequel as opposed to more CG B.S.?

James Cameron Shooting ‘Avatar’ Sequels Together, Not Involved with ‘True Lies’ Show

Wednesday, October 20 by

James Cameron inched closer to committing to Avatar 2 at a world media event for the Blu Ray release of an extended Avatar. “Our plan is to make 2 and 3 together as a single large production and release them a year apart,” Cameron said. “It’s in progress right now. There’s a lot of writing, a lot of designing and there’s a lot of tech work that we’re going to do.”

Hasn’t he invented everything already? He should be able to just crank out more Na’Vi, but of course Cameron wants to push things further. If he’s going to make two movies together, that could take five years. He wants to anticipate technological advances five years out, so that Avatar 3 still looks fresh when it’s released.

‘Taken’ Director Pierre Morel May As Well Direct Ouija Board Movie

Wednesday, October 20 by

"No. Seriously, do not listen to this thing. I do not have a crush on Cindy Hawkins."
I, like most others, reacted poorly when it was announced that Platinum Dunes are making a movie based off Hasbro's Ouija Board. "That's dumb," I thought. "There won't even be any room to work in French martial arts." Oh, how short-sighted I was, friends.
Taken director Pierre Morel is on the shortlist to direct the film. That means this will be the ass-kickingest game of Ouija ever played. All I see in my head when I think of this is a child-version of Liam Neeson breaking his older sister's fingers one by one until she admits she moved the planchette. Hopefully, he'll be able to get Neeson himself. You know, if Milton Bradley doesn't have him under retainer. (LA Times)

Mark Wahlberg Continues Slow, Methodical Takeover of HBO

Wednesday, October 20 by

I'm going to executive produce your face off!
Mark Wahlberg's gradual takeover of HBO moved one step closer to the tipping point with the announcement that he and Malcolm Gladwell are teaming up to produce a spy drama for the network. This brings Wahlberg's total number of HBO "executive producer" credits up to 55, give or take several dozen. Stephen Levinson and Charles Randolph will also act as executive producers, whatever that means.

The as-of-yet untitled series will take place in Cold War-era Berlin, and follow the exploits of a missionary who falls in with the CIA. In the interest of proving the writers at Vulture wrong, we will not go in for the easy "missionary position" joke, although God knows it would be hilarious if we did. (Vulture)

‘Piranha 3DD’ Schedules Blood, Boobs for August 2011

Wednesday, October 20 by

It's no surprise that Piranha 3D is getting a sequel. It's also no surprise that the sequel's title contains a pun involving breasts (Piranha 3DD). What is surprising is the fact that the film is scheduled to hit theaters in August 2011. I know they're not exactly going for an Oscar, but less than a year is still a pretty quick turn around time.

John Gulager (Feast) is set to direct, while Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan (Saw sequels) will pen the script. Let's hope Melton and Dunstan are fast writers. To speed things up, might I suggest using the word "tits" instead of "breasts," the word "fish" instead of "piranha," and the symbol for "$" in place of the words "plot," "character development" and "dignity."

‘Biutiful’ Trailer With Alternative Critic Quotes

Tuesday, October 19 by

NotZombies switched out the pull quotes in the Biutiful trailer and I have to say it peaked piqued my interest more than the original. Seriously, how did no one address the kid on the ceiling before?
