Steven Seagal To Star In TV Procedural ‘Southern Justice’

Friday, July 23 by

Steven Seagal goes through more phases than Barbie. So far, we've seen Mafioso Seagal, Reggae Musician Seagal, Environmental Activist Seagal, Gangsta Seagal, Asian Seagal, Jimmy Buffet Seagal, and Southern Lawman Seagal. It looks like his Southern phase is going to extend just a bit longer, with the news that Seagal will topline the TV crime procedural "Southern Justice."
The inexplicable decision to have Seagal bring his Southern swagger (born in Michigan, raised in California) to the mean streets of Seattle may sound like groan-worthy television to you. To me, it sounds like the gilded voices of autotuned angels. Nobody sweats another culture like Seagal and the results are magnificient. I cannot wait for "CSI" Seagal. There's nothing bad that can come of this. Unless you're a female member of the crew. My advice is to pair up with a buddy on-set and never let them out of your sight. (Moviehole)

‘Gravity’ Might Be Kind To Scarlett Johansson

Friday, July 23 by

Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity may have lost Angelina Jolie, but it now looks like Scarlett Johansson will fill her ridiculously hot shoes. Bleeding Cool reports that Johansson has verbally agreed to star in the film with her Iron Man 2 co-star Robert Downey Jr..
Johansson's role in Iron Man 2 didn't amount to much beyond the trailer, so don't go thinking she and RDJ are the next Bogart and Bacall. This could all be talk, but that's no reason to poo-poo the idea. Please put any negativity aside for a moment or two and imagine Scarlett at zero G's. That's something we could all have if we wish together. We can do this!!

‘The Glades’ Actress Beau Garrett

Friday, July 23 by

 
Beau Garrett is a model turned actress that made her splash with "Entourage" back in 2006. Since then she has been the sexy blonde shadow behind Olivia Wilde as they've teamed up together in Turistas, "House," and the upcoming Tron Legacy. She used her sexy talents, sans WIlde, on a recent episode of A&E's Floridia-based cop drama "The Glades."
A word from Beau:  "I love being able to push myself and be in the jungle barefoot in a bikini, cold, wet, tired, and seeing how far I could go."
We'd never work. I'm too attached to air conditioning and feeling carpet between my toes.

‘Machete’ Red Band Trailer Re-Invents Meaning Of “Red Band”

Did I just see what I think I …? Did he just..? Wow. The red band trailer for Machete is now online and we’re gonna need a redder band for…

Guillermo del Toro Develops Disney’s ‘Haunted Mansion’

Friday, July 23 by

What came first: the chicken or the egg? Well, if scientists are to be believed, it was the chicken.

Now, for an even more puzzling quandary. What came first: the amusement park ride or the movie with the same name as an amusement park ride? When it comes to Disney, the answer is usually the ride.

As mentioned in our Comic-Con Day 1 roundup, Guillermo del Toro is taking a page from Pirates of the Caribbean and developing a film based on the iconic Disneyland ride, Haunted Mansion.

“Millions of people from around the world visit The Haunted Mansion each year, but no one has ever had a tour guide like Guillermo del Toro,” said Rich Ross, Chairman of The Walt Disney Studios. “Guillermo is one of the most gifted and innovative filmmakers working today and he is going to take audiences on a visually-thrilling journey like they’ve never experienced before.”

If the film is anything like Pirates, audiences should be in for a real treat.  And if this is successful, I think Disney should follow it up with another amusement park-inspired film entitled $12 Hot Dog.

First HOT Look At the ‘Sucker Punch’ Girls

Friday, July 23 by

Last week we gave you a grainy look at the ass-kickers in Zack Snyder's Sucker Punch. At the time, we lamented that the picture didn't capture their hotness befittingly. Thankfully, Warner Bros has stepped in to give us a proper look at Emily Browning, Abbie Cornish, Vanessa Hudgens, Jamie Chung, Jena Malone, and Carla Gugino via character posters. These are much nicer than the corpse that Warners dragged through the townsquare yesterday.
This movie looks like a lot of fun. Not sure why Speilberg glossed over the fact that there were Nazi-zombies, mechanized armor, or dragons in World War II when he made Saving Private Ryan. Seems like exciting stuff to me. I guess he was just kind of asleep at the wheel.

‘Saw 3-D’ Trailer Hits the Internets

Friday, July 23 by

Saw 3D (a.k.a. Saw VII) has hit the Internet, and it's about what you'd expect.  If you like watching people get butchered in 3D, you'll love it.  If you don't like watching people get butchered in 3D, then you're probably a god damn communist.

While this is supposed to be the final chapter in the wildly successful Saw series, I'll believe it when I see it. I thought Jason Goes to Hell would be the final chapter of Friday the 13th.  But eight years later, there was Jason, terrorizing people on a spaceship. Perhaps Jigsaw will somehow visit the crew of seaQuest DSV. I hope so. That talking dolphin needs to be taken down a peg or two.

Comic-Con 2010: Thursday’s Adventures

Thursday, July 22 by

It's my first time at Comic-Con. I didn't know what to expect except madness, and madness is what I got. And David Hasselhoff singing on a bus surrounded by half-naked women, but we'll get to that later. Thursday proved to be a test of the mind, feet, and senses. I saw some terrific panels, cruised the main floor, and even attended a party where Sly Stallone was given an award that looked like a bomb. It was supposed to signify his contribution to the action movie genre, but made him look like an Italian who was at his wits end with the Hard Rock Hotel.
I started the day bright and early waiting in line for the Tron Legacy panel. Sally from A Nightmare Before Christmas was also there. 

Drew Struzan’s ‘Walking Dead’ Poster

Thursday, July 22 by

Movie poster master and Frank Darabont brosef, Drew Struzan whipped up this "The Walking Dead" poster for Comic-Con. Col. Hans had better come back with stacks of these, or not come back at all.

New ‘Tron Legacy’ Trailer Is Stunning

Thursday, July 22 by

The Tron Legacy panel at Comic-Con turned nerd boner-sacks inside out with its awesomeness. For those of us who didn't meet the maximum weight requirement to attend, Disney dropped this new trailer. I haven't seen anything this sexy since the last trailer. In this one, Garret Hedlund plays Cyber-Jesus as he battles his father's Doppelganger and creations while on a mission to find his real dad. Just like me and my stepdad. You're not the king of me, Roy!!
It all looks very cool and, yes, there is a light-jet. Didn't see that one coming. Then again, I don't work for a toy manufacturer.

Natalie Portman Is A Hot Swan In ‘Black Swan’ Pics

Thursday, July 22 by

Darren Aronofsky will open the Venice International Film Festival with his pyschological thriller Black Swan. USA Today has a first look at the film and it looks like Aronofsky didn't hold back. The visual style he's achieved in these few snapshots are elegant, mysterious, and foreboding. Natalie Portman stars as a stressed-out ballerina whose life takes odd turns after she is cast as the lead in Swan Lake.
There's a few more pictures after the jump. Though the one of Mila and Natalie seems tame. I'd much rather see other pictures of them. If you know what I'm sayin'. **suggestively bumps two doughnuts together, gets ejected from Tim Horton's**

Hey, Look At This Corpse: Comic-Con Pics Of ‘Green Lantern’s’ Abin Sur

Thursday, July 22 by

You nerds wanna see a dead body? There's one over by the water in San Diego.
The sickos at Warner Bros have shipped over the corpse of Abin Sur as part of their Green Lantern exhibit. As previously reported, Abin Sur is the alien predecessor to Ryan Reynold's Lantern, who gives him his awesome power-ring. And it also makes them married. Sorry! No take-backs!!
It's said that this prop was used during filming, and the detail is amazing. What is with Ryan Reynolds and coffins lately? Between this, Buried, and R.I.P.D., dude is likely to turn into Nicolas Cage. We'll need to monitor his hairline for the foreseeable future to be safe. (/Film)

‘Pretty Little Liars’ Actress Holly Marie Combs

Thursday, July 22 by

Holly Marie Combs was the sexy middle sister in the babe trio of "Charmed" for eight magical seasons. Trying to out-sexy Alyssa Milano would have required a spell of massive proportions. Holly has climbed the TV show charts over the years and now oozes MILF appeal on the new ABC Family series "Pretty Little Liars."
A word from Holly: "Your faith in yourself is all you will ever have. Don't let anyone take it away from you, ever."
I keep my faith in myself in a jar under my bed. No one will ever find it. No one..

Federal Agents Arrest Man For ‘South Park’ Threats

Thursday, July 22 by

Copper Cab, you have been warned.
Zachary Adam Chesser, a Virginia man, has been arrested for threats he made against "South Park" creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone. Incensed over  the show's depiction of the Prophet Mohammad in a bear costume, Chesser posted graphic images of slain Dutch filmmaker Theo Van Gogh with the warning that Parker and Stone would end up dead as well. Muslims love themselves some Prophet Mohammad and many regard any depiction of the Prophet as offensive. For the extremists, that offense is punishable by death. You should see what they do when you break the rules of Fight Club.
Chesser was prevented from boarding a flight earlier this month from New York to Uganda. It was his intention to then travel on to Somalia where he would join the terrorist organization al Shabaab. Chesser became interested in Islam in 2008, but claims to not believe in or condone acts of terrorism or violence. Unless you consider posting death threats accompanied by mutilated corpses on the Internet as a show of support. That's a gray area. (Reuters)

Working Title Deconstructs the Superhero Genre With ‘Astro City’

Thursday, July 22 by

Bruce Campbell?
Working Title has optioned the superhero send-up Astro City. Kurt Busiek's comic follows the superheros, villians, and ordinary citizens of Astro City as they react to one another and the world in which they live. The characters are all archetypes of popular comic book icons like Batman, Superman, The Flash, and the Joker.
The real-world plotlines have involved a reformed supervillian trying to walk the straight and narrow, as well as a sidekick initiation. Yikes, hope it wasn't getting paddled with a stop sign. Actually, that does sound fun. Let's get that on film. (Deadline)
