‘The Gates’ Actress Rhona Mitra

Tuesday, July 6 by

Rhona Mitra is the girl to revive the Tomb Raider franchise for three reasons: She is British, she is a real actress unlike rumored Kim Kardashian, and she is a total bad ass babe with a gun as we've seen in Doomsday and Underworld 3. But in the meantime while studio execs ponder her boner appeal (think Hollow Man) catch her in the  summer series "The Gates" on ABC, yet another show about vampires.A word from Rhona: "I never know if I want to be running across the fields with no clothes on or sitting in the pub drinking Guinness."Either way, you sound like an alcoholic. More pics of Rhona with little clothes on after the jump.

Javier Bardem To Guest On ‘Glee’ For Some Reason

Tuesday, July 6 by

I'm not even trying anymore.Today in Cuckoo Bananas News comes word that Javier Bardem will guest star on the next season of "Glee," and apparantly it was his idea. Bardem pitched the idea to Ryan Murphy, show creator and sex-banner, while working together on the set of Eat Pray Love. He explained to Entertainment Weekly in a gravelly, seductive voice that heretofore has only existed within the lust-soaked pages of Harlequin novels:“We’re going to rock the house,” enthuses Bardem, who became an unabashed Gleek after watching the entire first season in one week. “We’re going to do some heavy metal — Spanish heavy metal, which is the worst.” Whoa, whoa, whoa, Javier. DO NOT insult the work of Brujeria. You have no idea the amount of blood, sweat, and tears that went into making "The Mexicutioner." Granted, most of it was from groupies but still….

LucasFilm Disapproves of Lightsaber That Sets Skin On Fire

Tuesday, July 6 by

Wicked Lasers designed a blue laser called the Spyder III Pro Arctic that looks an awful lot like a lightsaber. It has the ability to kill people, and LucasFilm has a problem with that. Even the warning on the product itself basically says not to turn the thing on: Warning: Extremely dangerous is an understatement to the power of 1W of laser power. It will blind permanently and instantly and set fire quickly to skin and other body parts, use with extreme caution and only when using the included eye protection. Customers will be required to completely read and agree to our Class IV Laser Hazard Acknowledgment Form. It doesn't get more metal than setting fire to skin and other body parts. Do they mean body parts not covered by skin? What kind of creature is handling these miracles of modern science? Apparently those pussies at LucasFilm can't handle the shear awesomeness of death lasers: It has come to our attention that a company called Wicked Lasers is selling a highly dangerous product out of Hong Kong that is designed to look like a lightsaber from Star Wars. This product is not licensed or approved by Lucasfilm in any way. We have demanded that Wicked Lasers immediately cease and desist their infringing activities. As Wicked Lasers itself admits, this product can cause serious injury to the user and other people. We strongly discourage consumers from purchasing it. I guess I get it. Someone sells a product that resembles a cherished icon from your landmark films, and said product sets some kid on fire, you might wind up with egg on your face. But it's awesome blue egg that emits a 445nm ultra high power 1W beam which appears up to 4000% brighter than the Sonar's 405nm violet beam!  Check out video of the Spyder III after the jump…

The Predator History of the World

Tuesday, July 6 by

Very rudely, the Predator race has used the planet as their personal playground without so much as a tip of the hat.This year, they're back, and they're taking some of us with them back to their personal game reserve. I may sound bitter, and that's probably unfair to the Predators. Actually, they've been integral to world history, as I've wanted to showcase. Thanks for the pyramids, you greedy, trigger-happy jerks!

Bradley Cooper Backs Out Of M. Night Shyamalan’s Next Project

Tuesday, July 6 by

He's made Adrien Brody go full-retard and Mark Wahlberg apologize to plants, but it looks like M. Night Shyamalan won't have the opportunity to shame Bradley Cooper. The A-Team star, who has flown tanks and willingly posed for the above picture, has opted out of Shyamalan's next project (which the Law of Averages dictates will be terrible) due to "schedule conflicts." Mmmmm-hmmmm.It's believed that Cooper will be tied up with The Hangover 2, but the news comes at a suspicious time as Shyamalan's The Last Airbender is drawing the worst reviews of the year. And let's not forget, Furry Vengeance and Clash of the Titans came out this year. Ryan Reynolds would be wise to screen his calls for the next few weeks. (Philly.com)

An Older, More Sophisticated ‘Fraggle’ Movie

Tuesday, July 6 by

Last month, director/screenwriter Corey Edwards started a pissing match with the Weinstein Brothers over a possible new Fraggle movie. In a post on his blog, Edwards claimed that the Weinsteins were searching for a new screenwriter because his version was not "edgy" enough. Now comes word that Edwards and the Weinsteins have cleared the air, probably due to the fact that Edwards is contractually obligated to direct the film. I’ve been able to sit down with Weinstein’s new VP of Development and really talk about their issues with the movie. We’ve had some very good conversations about what they think “edgy” is and what I think “edgy” is. We got down to the philosophies of why to even make a Fraggle movie in the first place. And I think they’ve been able to qualify their word “edgy” with the word “older.” They want this movie to connect with an older, more sophisticated audience. I'm surprised this is even an issue. What can be more "sophisticated" than a bunch of glorified sock puppets singing and dancing in a magical underground world? As the following quote from Jim Henson demonstrates, sophistication is what the Fraggles are all about. "It is a high-energy, raucous musical romp. It's a lot of silliness. It's wonderful." (/Film)

Rodriguez Finds Some Time for ‘Sin City 2′

Tuesday, July 6 by

Robert Rodriguez wants to make Sin City 2. Fans want to see Sin City 2. Studios and theater owners want to make money off of Sin City 2? So what the hell's the hold up on Sin City 2?Apparently, Rodriguez just hasn't been able to find the time for a followup. After all, Spy Kids 4 and The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl aren't going to make themselves.But now comes word that Rodriguez has finally started a much needed rewrite to the Sin City 2 script, and the director is still very excited about the project. With any luck, fans will be seeing violent, on-screen castrations before the end of the decade. (Cinema Blend)

‘Titanic’ 3D Sets Sail in 2012

Tuesday, July 6 by

When James Cameron isn't saving the indigenous people of South America or cleaning up the BP oil spill, he spends time on his favorite hobby: filmmaking. Currently, Cameron is tinkering with a little-known film called Titanic. It was originally released in 1997 and was primarily shown in art-house theaters and on college campuses. Now, Cameron hopes to bring his work to a wider audience by converting it to 3D and re-releasing it to theaters in April of 2012.2012 marks the 100th anniversary of the Titanic's sinking, which went down on April 14th, 1912, much to the delight of melodramatic film lovers everywhere.

‘Twilight: Eclipse’ Bores Man To Death

Monday, July 5 by

How bad is Twilight: Eclipse? It's so bad that men in the prime of their lives are dropping dead after a single viewing. Don't believe me? Then how do you explain this poor "transient" in New Zealand? The body of the man was found in a movie theatre at the Reading complex on Courtenay Place by a staff member shortly before 8.30pm last night, said police. The theatre had been screening The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.Well, there you have it. Twilight kills. What other explanation can there be for why a 23-year-old transient would drop dead? Haven't you seen Hobo with a Shotgun? They're practically indestructible. (NZHerald)

‘The Kids Are All Right’ Actress Yaya DaCosta

Monday, July 5 by

Yaya DaCosta may not be a face well known to the big screen with indie exceptions The Messenger and Honeydipper, your girlfriend has seen her as "American's Next Top Model" first runner-up, on cosmetic commericals of Olay lotions, and "Ugly Betty."  She'll be turning in a performance in The Kids Are All Right this week, and then be popping up in X-mas-can't-come-any-sooner Tron Legacy as one of the sexy game Sirens.A word from Yaya: "Both my parents are educators. My siblings and I always had to get good grades no matter what outside interests we had.”I aced all my classes and still found time to sculpt ceramic elephants. The clubs at my school were weird.More pics of Yaya after the jump.

‘I’m Bruce Willis’ Music Video

Monday, July 5 by

Someone finally made a song about the awesomeness that is Bruce Willis. The music video for Jeep Cherokee's catchy little diddy plays out like a montage of cinematic bad-assery. They even included Striking Distance and The Color of Night. Now that's what I call comprehensive. Check out I'm Bruce Willis after the jump…

‘The Hobbit’: Is Ian McKellan Out This Bitch?

Sunday, July 4 by

With every passing day, it becomes increasingly likely that MGM's no money-induced mo' problems will doom The Hobbit to development hell. Now, at the risk of losing Gandalf the Grey, it's time for MGM to take a lush, sprawling, epic sh*t or get off the high fantasy pot. Sidenote: Led Zeppelin would not be half as successful without high fantasy pot.Sir Ian McKellan sat down with New Zealand's Good Morning show to discuss how he may be out this bitch:"Well, I’m not under contract and my time is running out and I’m enjoying working in the theater and frankly, I would like to race after doing 'Waiting For Godot,' get on with doing another play but we’ll have to see. I don’t give the producers the impression that I’m sitting waiting." Yikes. Looks like a decision needs to be made sooner than later. There's plenty of septugenarians willing to wear a robe and yell incoherent words. But Sir Ian McKellan is the one least likely to bite the 1st Assistant Director. (via Bleeding Cool)CHECK OUT SIR IAN'S INTERVIEW AFTER THE JUMP IN CASE YOU DON'T TAKE MY WORD AT FACE VALUE. IF THAT'S SO, WE NEED TO WORK ON US…

Pic of Jason Momoa as ‘Conan’ in Mid-Swing

Saturday, July 3 by

'Bout time we see Jason Momoa causing pain as Conan the Barbarian. The first pic released showed him, what looked like, smelling a fart, completely not covered in someone else's blood. I'm not sure why water is spraying at him in the above pic, but my guess is one of those barrels they place on the side of the highway clipped him while he was trying to make the exit, and he had to lay the smackdown. If this movie is about Conan battling an army of road barricades it's going to be awesome. (/Film)

Intense ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows’ Teaser Poster

Friday, July 2 by

Warner Bros. released the teaser poster for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and it's grim as all get out. With the tag "It All Ends Here" looming above a flaming Hogwarts, someone in marketing must have desired tears from avid Potter fans. If you look really closely you can even see Harry screaming for his life in the far right tower window. Look closer. Clooooser.Haha. You dummy. When will you learn not to trust me?
