Nicolas Cage WILL ‘Trespass’ with Joel Schumacher

Tuesday, August 3 by

Sh*t or get off the pot, Cage. Deadline is reporting that Nicolas Cage is back on Trespass after recently quitting the Joel Schumacker-directed film. He originally signed on to play the kidnapped husband to the kidnapped Nicole Kidman. Then he wanted to play the kidnapper who kidnaps the married couple. Now he's back as the kidnapped husband again. Before production starts on August 30th, Cage is expected to quit two more times, return two more times, take over the kidnapped wife role, and kidnap the actual Nicole Kidman. Production will work around his schedule. 

Scrooge McDuck Did It: ‘Inception’ Is a Rip-Off

Tuesday, August 3 by

I didn't enjoy Inception as much as Peter Travers did. The action was great and the overall concept was enjoyable, but I didn't find the characters grounded enough to get hooked into. They definitely weren't as fleshed out as Scrooge McDuck. It's come to light today that Christopher Nolan, stealing stealer who steals, stole the plot to Inception from a Scrooge McDuck comic strip.
You'd think a zillionaire like Scrooge McDuck would have his mind trained against intruders entering his subconscious. And how do we know that Donald isn't actually Tom Hardy? God, this comic is such a mindf*ck. (via /Film)

‘Inception’ C-Blocks ‘X-Men: First Class’

Tuesday, August 3 by

A screening of Inception this past weekend turned into a reeeeeeeaaaaalllllll nightmare for Matthew Vaughn (crickets). Vaughn says that he was sunk when he saw Joseph Gordon-Levitt involved in a zero gravity fistfight because it was too similar to what they were planning to do with X-Men: First Class. The scene in question would feature James McAvoy's Professor X in "dream-space combat" with "spinning rooms and other physics-bending imagery," but now it's been torn from the script as Vaughn's team brainstorms a new set piece. "So it's either leave it in and look as if you're copying or change things. We completely ripped out about 12 pages of the script and the storyboards," commented Vaughn.
Whatever. It's an easy fix. Just set the fight in a bounce castle. Why waste time thinking and writing? They obviously learned nothing from the example set by X-Men 3. (LA Times)

MGM Stretches Budget to ‘The Outer Limits’

Tuesday, August 3 by

WTF, Outer Limits?
MGM doesn't have enough dough to get another Bond film or The Hobbit off the ground, but that doesn't mean they can't revive a 1960s sci-fi series no one cares about. The broke Lion studio has hired Saw 4-7 writers Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan to pen a feature take on "The Outer Limits." This means they'll have to come up with a way to scare audiences that doesn't involve an elaborate Rube Goldberg-esque death trap strapped to someone's extremities. Or maybe they won't.
MGM admits that the two writers were paid just weeks ago but insists they were hired well before the studio went into the shitter. If they paid these guys 500k just a few weeks ago where did they come up with the money and why isn't that lion's legs broken yet? I hope he's turning tricks on a street corner in something form-fitting. Tom Sizemore is cruising around Hollywood right now looking for "a different kind" of prostitute. (Variety)

‘Step Up 3D’ Actress Sharni Vinson

Tuesday, August 3 by

While my boss rightfully makes fun of me for going to see Step Up 3D, Sharni Vinson, another hot chick from down under, definitely deserves the girl gallery treament. Sharni may not yet possess the acting talent to support an entire movie, but she does have the moves to keep us wanting for more. The 3D doesn't hurt matters either.
A word from Sharni: "Though I have no experience dancing in 3D, I did the best I could."
I've heard dancing in 3D is much like regular dancing, considering life is lived in 3D.

Eva Mendes’s Sticky Sex Tape

Tuesday, August 3 by

It seems a little convenient that the Eva Mendes sex tape just happened to hit the internet the very week her film The Other Guys opens in theaters. I feel like she's been keeping this one in her pocket for awhile now and the big guns at Sony persuaded (forced) her to release it on the world. We've all demanded it for years, and now it's finally here. Enjoy, Internet.

Justin Bieber’s Stupid Biopic Will Be In 3D

Tuesday, August 3 by

Shortly after it was announced that diminutive singing child Justin Bieber would pen the very important memoir Justin Bieber: First Step 2 Forever: My Story, we now have more details on that 8 Mile thing he's doing for money.
Paramount Pictures has made a deal to turn Justin Bieber's life story into a 3D feature biopic. Davis Guggenheim, the Oscar-winning director of An Inconvenient Truth, is negotiating to direct.
The biopic is set for a Valentine's Day release and will also include footage from Bieber's upcoming concert at Madison Square Garden. It's uncertain how much of the film will cover Bieber getting hopped up on Sour Patch Kids and punching his manager in the balls. Probably like two-thirds. (Deadline)

Guillermo del Toro’s ‘Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark’ Trailer

Tuesday, August 3 by

Here comes the tickle monster!
Miramax has released the trailer for Don't Be Afraid of the Dark, a horror film remake written and co-produced by scare guru Guillermo del Toro. I saw this first at Comic-Con (don't be jealous, it doesn't suit you), and I'll admit, the last part made me jump in my seat. But I'm still totally 100% man. They also screened a clip that dealt with teeth and a hammer. Use your imagination. Nope, it was still cooler than that.
Don't Be Afraid of the Dark centers on a young girl who is sent to live with her father and his new girlfriend, and if that wasn't bad enough, she discovers creatures in her new home who want to claim her as one of their own. It's not to be confused with the old Nickelodeon show "Are You Afraid of the Dark?" even though I'm sure you can find almost the exact story in the archives.
Don't Be Afraid of the Dark hits theaters January 21, 2011.
Check out the trailer after the jump…

10 Fake But Memorable Movie Websites

Tuesday, August 3 by

Middle Men, hitting theaters Friday, is the tale of Jack Harris (played by Luke Wilson) who has a successful career fixing problem companies. He meets Wayne Beering (Giovanni Ribisi) and Buck Dolby (Gabriel Macht), who've invented a way for adult entertainment to be sold over the internet. Based on a true story, I'm sure they won't go as far as to mention the actual name of the website. It will probably be something close to the actual website URL but funnier for movie fans.

The internet has a played a part in the plot of countless movies. In some cases it's a brief mention that just moves the story along but in others it's a main focus that actually drives the storyline. Here are ten movies that use fake websites. Some of the website names might be even more popular than the actual movie.

Olivia Wilde Appears Naked In ‘Cowboys & Aliens’

Tuesday, August 3 by

Like this but nakeder.
We've been writing about Cowboys & Aliens for a little while now, but haven't really formed an opinion on whether or not we're looking forward to it. Until now because Olivia Wilde is appearing naked again. Adam Beach (who plays Nat Colorado) was recently interviewed and began describing the on-set experience of Olivia Wilde's nude scene.
"We just finished shooting Olivia Wilde naked in front of a bonfire in front of 500 Apache warriors. That was beautiful. You won't get to see what I saw, but you'll get a glimpse."
First of all, that's going to make things awkward for Adam at the wrap party. Secondly, big deal. We'll probably only get to see her back and maybe a slightly moon-lit ass. Thirdly, I'd call standing naked in front of 500 Apache warriors a pretty intense experience. But if you're Gary Busey, you'd call it Tuesday. (Jam)

Cera and Tambor Talk ‘Arrested Development’ Movie

Tuesday, August 3 by

For years, losers like myself have staved off our suicidal thoughts with the hope of an Arrested Development movie. But month after month, it's a roller coaster of emotions as rumors about the on-again off-again project mount. But now comes a sliver of hope! Michael Cera and Jeffrey Tambor both seem to think it's happening!
Based on interviews the stars did at Comic-Con, the film almost seems inevitable. Unfortunately, neither star has any specifics, although Tambor went as far as to say he may need a walker by time the film gets under way.

Strange, I never thought I'd use the term c*cktease and Jeffrey Tambor in the same sentence. Michael Cera, on the other hand…me-ow! (Empire Online)

Jason Reitman Makes a Deal with the Diablo

Tuesday, August 3 by

Jason Reitman has signed on to direct Diablo Cody's latest screenplay, Young Adult. Reitman, who also directed Cody's teen-pregnancy film, Juno, will have Charlize Theron as a lead, playing an author who finds success writing under a pseudonym.

The film will be Reitman's first since directing the Oscar winning Up in the Air, and will be Cody's first since penning the box-office bomb, Jennifer's Body. If you combine those two titles, you have Up in Jennifer's Body, which I think sounds a hell of a lot more interesting than Young Adult, but that's just me. (Cinema Blend)

Nicolas Cage Won’t ‘Trespass’ with Joel Schumacher

Monday, August 2 by

With just two weeks to go before filming begins, Nicholas Cage has pulled out of Joel Schumacher's Trespass, Deadline is reporting. Cage was to star along side Nicole Kidman, playing a husband who is kidnapped with his wife by a group of thugs looking for ransom. Cage's departure leaves Schumacher and Co. scrambling to find a suitable replacement. Liev Schreiber is rumored to be in the running.

If there's one thing to be said for Cage, it's that he likes to work. And while he's made some great movies, he also churns out horrible films without blinking an eye (The Wicker Man, Ghost Rider). So if he's walking away from your project, it might be time to consider hanging up your director's helmet.
See Nic Cage get his face stung off by bees after the jump…

Oregon Trail: The Movie Official Trailer – Watch more Game Trailers
I was obsessed with this game in elementary school. It made learning a fun adventure full of snake bites and terminal cases of dysentery. No wonder I got so bored with education as I rose through the grades. There weren't nearly enough snake bites my Junior year. Too much dysentary, sure, but not enough snake bites. (HalfDayToday)
