Watch Josh Hutcherson’s ‘Spider-Man’ Audition For Some Reason

Tuesday, July 27 by

The road to casting Andrew Garfield for Marc Webb's Spider-Man reboot was a bumpy one at best. As the time for a decision drew near, the filmmakers whittled their list of hopefuls down to five young actors. One of these hopefuls was Josh Hutcherson, who was once the rumored front-runner to walk in Tobey Maguire's shadow. Though we'll never see Hutcherson play Parker on the big screen, we can now see him in an awkwardly-staged audition video.
Latino Review was able to unearth the tape that caught the attention of Sony execs and Marc Webb. It's rumored to have been choreographed by fight choreographer Larnell Stovell, and shows Hutcherson's Parker squaring off against a gang of high school bullies, who he easily flings into well-placed exercise mats. It really is such a good thing that those mats were there. Check out the video here and let us know what you think of Hutcherson as Parker. He looks like too much like he should be playing keyboards for Panic At The Disco to me.

‘Nick Swardson’s Pretend Time’ Wheelchair Cat Clip

Tuesday, July 27 by

Comedian/actor Nick Swardson has a new show coming to Comedy Central in October called "Nick Swardson's Pretend Time." I was invited to visit the set a few months ago, and will share some of that footage with you once it gets closer to the premiere date. I know you guys are savages though, so in the meantime, here's a clip about a disabled cat in a wheelchair. His name is Mr. Stitches the Trust Fund Kitty and he rolls around with b*tches and blow just like Stephen Hawking. 
I'm officially sold on this show. I've loved Nick Swardson's particular brand of humor ever since I caught his early stand-up special way back when. In my book, any man who mixes drugs, boobs, and felines without feeling below the waste deserves a shot. It's a weird book I keep. (WarmingGlow)

Brett Ratner To Work With ‘Unknowns’

Tuesday, July 27 by

Brett Ratner is getting in the spy game. Ratner bought the film rights to "The Unknowns," a comic book written by Mark A. Altman ("DOA: Dead Or Alive"), Steve Kriozere ("NCIS") and model/actress Monica Olsen.
The comic tells the story of a woman who learns she was once the leader of an elite team called the Unknowns. She rejoins the team to learn who or what erased her memories and why. That definitely seems like it has movie potential. Hard to say what attracted Ratner to the project. Is he a fan of DOA, "NCIS", or model/actress Monica Olsen's talents.

We may never know. (Variety)

‘Charlie St. Cloud’ Actress Amanda Crew

Tuesday, July 27 by

Amanda Crew is a former Blockbuster employee turned actress, who stole the show in Sex Drive along with fellow nerdy friend Clark Duke. She can be seen in this week's upcoming Charlie St. Cloud, further proving that I should have asked out that girl who worked at the Hot Topic store all those years ago. But mother wouldn't approve of it.
A word from Amanda: "I'll take a total nerd over a football jock any day. They are so darn cute I could eat 'em!"
But never date them.

Tom Hardy Replaces Sam Worthington in McG’s ‘This Means War’

Tuesday, July 27 by

Their body language says everything.
Another actor has once again jumped McG's This Means War ship. Sam Worthington was set to duel with Chris Pine in the project, but the Aussie actor has peaced out and Brit Tom Hardy has taken his place. Now Hardy and Pine, both Star Trek nuuuuurds, will go after each other black-ops-spy-style while also vying for the hand of Reese Witherspoon.
I'm a huge fan of this pairing. Tom Hardy's performance in Inception was one of the most enjoyable parts of the film, and Chris Pine proved he can hold his own in the Star Trek reboot. Watching these two fine actors go head-to-head with spy sh*t could be an exhilarating match. Especially if McG scores the scene with a Prodigy "Firestarter"/Usher "Daddy's Home" remix. (Vulture)

Dinner of Movie Schmucks

Tuesday, July 27 by

With Dinner for Schmucks out later this week, we felt nostalgic for some of our favorite movie schmucks. Then, we imagined, if they can make a crossover as spectacular as Freddy vs. Jason, or Alien vs. Predator, why wasn't THIS dinner movie greenlit (Schmucks: The Spacklering?).

Rihanna Joins Cast of ‘Battleship’ Because at This Point, Why the Hell Not?

Tuesday, July 27 by

I smell Oscar!
If you're already making a movie out of a grid-based board game, and you've already decided to add an extraterrestrial element for no apparent reason, why in the hell wouldn't you throw a popular female R'n'B singer into the mix?

Empire Online is reporting that Rihanna will make her feature film debut in Peter Berg's Battleship. The singer will join Alexander Skarsgard and Taylor Kitsch who have already signed on to the project, for some reason.

Not to be outdone, Rihanna's ex-boyfriend, singer Chris Brown, has announced plans to star in an off-Broadway production of Connect Four: The Musical. Will it prove as successful? Only time will tell.

‘Robocop’ Remake Is Officially Dead

Tuesday, July 27 by

I'm sad to report that those of us waiting to see a poignant, arthouse remake of a film about a part robot, part human cop who walks through walls and fights cyber-ninjas are to be left wanting. Darren Aronofsky's long-in-the-works, inexplicable remake of Robocop has officially been scrapped. The collapse of the project was came about for two reasons: MGM's money problems, and Darren Aronofsky's realizing that he is Darren Aronofsky. (Moviehole)

The New ‘Boardwalk Empire’ Trailer is a Gangster’s Paradise (Sans Coolio)

Monday, July 26 by

HBO's New "Boardwalk Empire" trailer is like an all-star lineup of prohibition-era gangsters. "Lucky" Luciano, Arnold "The Brain" Rothstein, "Papa Johnny" Torrio, "Big Jim" Colosimo, and even a still small-time "Scarface Al" Capone all make an appearance in this epic new series.

Staring Steve Buscemi as a corrupt Atlantic City Councilman, the Martin Scorsese directed project chronicles the rise of bootlegging during the early 1920's.

While the trailer looks awesome, I couldn't help but notice the absence of noted gangster Moe Greene. This was a great man, a man of vision and guts. And there isn't even a plaque, or a signpost or a statue of him in that town! (Movie Line)

New Trailer for Zack Snyder’s ‘Sucker Punch’

Monday, July 26 by

The trailer for Director Zack Snyder's new film, Sucker Punch, has hit the Internet, and boy does it look sexy…in a sort of retro, World War I, ancient Chinese warrior/1930's gangster sort of way.

Other than the fact that the plot involves a girl in a mental institution, I really don't know what the hell is going on here. Oh, sure, I read the Wikipedia page, but that didn't help. What is clear is that the movie has hot girls, guns, and a dragon. If you really need to know more than that you're probably not in the film's target demographic, anyway.

Comic-Con 2010: ‘Community’ Interviews

Monday, July 26 by

I was fortunate enough to interview the cast and writers of "Community" while at Comic-Con this year, a.k.a. Allison Brie looked into my eyes. I also attended the jam-packed panel before the roundtables, but Vince at FilmDrunk took notes with such diligence that you should go to his write-up for those specifics. The entire cast was completely humbled and moved by how many people stood in a long-ass line to squeeze into a hotel ballroom to see them. One little tidbit I snagged is a video of Donald Glover and Danny Pudi singing "Somewhere Out There" from An American Tail live.

Comic-Con 2010: Stallone & Gang at ‘The Expendables’ Party

Monday, July 26 by

I've got cinematography skillz.
While at Comic-Con, I attended a party for The Expendables where Dolph Lundgren, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, and Steve Austin presented an Action Hero Hall of Fame Award to Sylvester Stallone. He's the first recipient, so I'm not sure how prestigious it is. Guess it all depends on who receives it next year. If it's Luke Wilson for his work in Blue Streak then I'll know it's legit.
