The ‘Terminator’ Will Be Back…In Animated Form

Friday, August 13 by

Good news for fans of killer robots from the future. A bunch of production companies you've never heard of are developing Terminator 3000, a proposed $70 million, 3D animated feature.

Although plot details are sparse, the film will involve characters from the original Terminator. However, what we do know is that those involved with the production are keeping violence to a minimum in order to avoid an R rating. After all, we wouldn't want a movie about blood-thirsty cyborgs from a post-apocalyptic hell hole to get too violent. What if someone wants to take their grandma, or maybe their 4-year-old daughter? Terminator was meant for the whole family. (Coming Soon)

The ShamWow Guy has a Movie Trailer

Friday, August 13 by

You're gonna love my nuts (but probably not my movie).
Vince Offer, a.k.a. the ShamWow Guy, made a movie, and we have the trailer. You getting this, camera guy?

What's even more surprising is the fact that it isn't his first film. Underground Comedy 2010, which was both written and directed by Offer, is actually a followup to his previous work, Underground Comedy Movie. What the film lacks in the way of an original title it more than makes up for with off-the-wall cameos. Bobby Lee plays a character named Dickman, Michael Clarke Duncan plays a gay virgin, and Lindsay Lohan plays herself in this bizarre, most likely straight to video flick.

Last I heard, Offer, a vocal opponent and former member of the Church of Scientology, had been hauled off to jail for punching a hooker in the face (supposedly in self-defense). I'm suprised that he's back, but I'm even more suprised that the Scientologists didn't put the kibosh on his film, considering their reach in Hollywood. Although after watching the trailer, maybe they figured it would do more harm to his career if they simply allowed it to be released. (Cinema Blend)

Justin Bieber’s Movie Lands ‘Step Up 3D’ Director

Thursday, August 12 by

The Justin Bieber biopic has found its director, and a more fitting choice could not have been made. His name: Jon Chu.

"Who's Jon Chu," you ask? Oh, I don't know. He's only the director behind a little film called Step Up 3D, 2010's hottest dance based 3D movie! That's who Jon Chu is, b*tch! Who the hell are you?

Cinema Blend is reporting that over 20 directors applied for the job, but Chu ultimately won out because of his previous experience with 3D films. That, and he was the only one of the bunch who wasn't a convicted sex offender.

Rest easy, Justin. Jon Chu won't try to touch you in your bikini area.

‘How Do You Know’ Trailer

Thursday, August 12 by

Don't EVER sit next to Jack Nicholson.
James L. Brooks is back with another dramedy. This time he's got Paul Rudd, Owen Wilson, and Reese Witherspoon in his bullpen for a good ol' fashioned sports-centric love triangle. Businessman Rudd goes up against baseball player Wilson for the hand and pointy chin of Witherspoon, who as luck would have it just got out of a long-term relationship. Sounds like conflict! Jack Nicholson also stars as what seems like Rudd's deliverer of bad news. Hey, if you gotta hear bad news, who better to tell you than Jack Nicholson? …If Gary Busey is stuck in a tree. 
Check out the trailer below and let me know what you think. Is it more As Good As It Gets or more Spanglish?

Massive Lightsaber Fight Is Massive

Thursday, August 12 by

On July 31st, over 500 people (nerds) gathered at the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto, Canada to participate in a massive Jedi vs. Sith lightsaber battle. The event was held by Newmindspace, an interactive public art dissemenation based in New York and Toronto. In addition to the lightsaber battles, they've organized massive bubble baths, pillow fights, and blanket forts. And no, none were populated by women in baby doll pajamas.

Ryan Reynolds Gets First Bunk in Denzel’s ‘Safe House’

Thursday, August 12 by

Trippy.
It seems Ryan Reynolds's washboard abs are nabbing all the juicy roles these days. Green Lantern himself has emerged as the front runner to play opposite Denzel Washington in Safe House. Washington signed on a few weeks ago as the film's villain, and Reynolds would be the hero, "a young CIA agent who must transport a dangerous criminal to safety after both are attacked at a safe house."
Some very talented young actors have been vying for the role, including Shia LeBeouf, Taylor Kitsch, Chris Pine, Sam Worthington, Garrett Hedlund, Zac Efron, Channing Tatum, Chris Hemsworth, and Jake Gyllenhaal. No final decision has been made, so we can't give Reynolds the crown just yet. I have it on good authority that Universal Studios will be closing down the gym at a local YMCA to award the role. All of the actors will be filed in and a broken pool cue dropped in the middle of them. My money's still on Deadpool. (Deadline)

Warners Bros Are C-Blocking ‘Deadpool’ According To Rob Liefield

Thursday, August 12 by

There's been some rumblings that Warner Bros. wants to move forward with a Green Lantern trilogy, with plans to film the second and third films back-to-back. Which I think is a thinly-veiled ploy to spend more time hanging around Blake Lively. I see what you're doing there, Warners.
However should this happen, it's going to severly screw up the production of the Deadpool movie that nobody wants to see by tying up Ryan Reynolds. Deadpool co-creater Rob Liefeld may or may not have inside knowledge about the project, but he definitely has an opinion on how things should go. From his Twitter:

"Warner Bros. just trying to protect their investment. They don’t want Ryan Reynolds playing Deadpool AND Green Lantern. Interesting 2 watch"

"Please direct Deadpool @RobertRdz !!!!! I’m not above begging! Thanks!"

"Bottom line about Deadpool film is that if FOX doesn’t pull the DP film together with Ryan Reynolds between GL films-they should Hari Kari"

"Ryan Reynolds is the new Will Smith, if FOX can’t maximize this window of opportunity with this star, this character, that script=MASSV FAIL"

"You have it reversed @GeekTyrant it’s Warners that wants to film back 2 back GL’s and disrupt Deadpool. Not FOX!! Get it right!"

Nice, GeekTyrant. Now he's all worked up. It's going to be impossible to get him down for his nap now.  (via Bleeding Cool)

Daily Expendable: Jason Statham

Thursday, August 12 by

There is the right way, the wrong way, and the Jason Statham way to handle life's problems. To live by the Statham way means kicking as much possible ass with a cool British smokers accent and still not break a sweat. Statham, the former olympic swimming diver, turned mega action star shows that you should never mess with Union Jack in a dark alleyway or street fight. With The Expendables opening this week, Statham shows how a tough guy should act and still keep his cool, remember head butt first and ask questions later, mate.
Highly Debatable Best Role: Chev Chelios in Crank
Weird Fact: Made In The Name Of The King with Uwe Boll at the height of his popularity.

Review: ‘The Expendables’

Thursday, August 12 by

The Expendables
R, 103m., 2010
Cast: Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Steve Austin, Giselle Itie, Charisma Carpenter, David Zayas with Terry Crews, Eric Roberts and Mickey Rourke
Directed by Sylvester Stallone
Screenplay by David Callaham and Sylvester Stallone

There was this large plastic bin that I had growing up filled with action figures and their various weapon accessories. From Duke Nuk'em to The Terminator, the original 90s Batman series, metal figure G.I Joes, Aliens, X-Men, Biker Mice from Mars, Ghostbusters, Toxic Crusaders and others that I have now forgot. They traveled with me wherever I moved during those years. They were my friends, enemies, and characters to create.

‘Middle Men’ Actress Tami Donaldson

Thursday, August 12 by

 
Tami Donaldson, a former 3rd grade school teacher turned Maxim pin up girl, is the prime example of Van Halen's 'Hot For Teacher'. She makes her feature film debut briefly in this month's Middle Men, but she's also known for getting with manhore musician Dave Navaro in her spare time.
A word from Tami:  “I’m kind of shy and quiet when I’m out, but in the bedroom I like to be in charge—I like to be the boss.”  
So…a lady on the street but a freak in the bed? You're like a dream.

Josh Brolin May Pretend He Isn’t Attracted To Charlize Theron In ‘Young Adult’

Thursday, August 12 by

"No funny stuff, lady."
Josh Brolin is considering letting Charlize Theron ruin his life. I thought Jonah Hex already took care of that, but I guess not. Brolin is up for the role of Charlize's ex-boyfriend in Jason Reitman and Diablo Cody's next collabo Young Adult. If he signs on, Brolin will play the former high school sweetheart to Theron's successful YA author, who she decides to stalk. I hate when statuesque model types try to break themselves off a piece o' this.
The movie is said to have a few humorous moments, but for the most part it will be "pretty serious and f*cked up." Just like that E.T. porno that's been making the rounds. No, I won't link you. Look it up, perv. (Showbiz 411)

‘Mad Men’ Auction Makes Touching Christina Hendricks Possible

Thursday, August 12 by

Play it cool, boys. Geez.
You've been waiting years to touch Christina Hendricks and now eBay is making it possible. A 10-day "Mad Men" auction goes live on Thursday in which some of the items up for bid are a walk-on role on the show, furniture and props from Sterling Cooper, and dresses that have graced the skin of both Betty Draper (January Jones) and Joan Harris (Christina Hendricks). Imagine the things you could do with those dresses, as long as you have the matching shoes, of course.
A portion of the proceeds from the auction will go to the lung cancer program at southern California's City of Hope hospital. The other portion will go to the January-Jones-F*cked-Up-Again fund. You can start bidding tomorrow HERE. Make sure your PayPal accounts are in order. Christina Hendricks's dress waits for no nerd. (Vulture)

Jennifer Lawrence Wants To ‘Lie Down In Darkness’, Might Be A Little Bit Crazy

Thursday, August 12 by

Lawrence pictured on Level 4-1 of Super Mario Bros.
Jennifer Lawrence is having a great year. After breaking out in Winter's Bone, she quickly lined up roles in The Beaver and X-Men: First Class. Now she has her sights set on a role in Crazy Heart director Scott Cooper's Lie Down In Darkness.
"I am obsessed with that part. I have this feeling of protectiveness over characters I want to play. I worry about them — if someone else gets the part, I'm afraid they won't do it right."
The former star of "The Bill Engvall Show" goes on to say:
"I'm trying to write the director of 'Lie Down in Darkness' a letter to convince him that I should be in his movie. I'll chase him if I have to. I'll sit outside his house." She laughed. "I'm beside myself over that script. When I get like that, anything's possible."
Ruh-roh. Looks like we've got another Sean Young on our hands. I've already called the police. (W Magazine)
