Full Cast Pic from AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead’

Thursday, July 15 by

We've got a lot of picture news for you this morning so you don't have to process words. Here's a group snapshot of the cast from AMC's The Walking Dead. If that isn't a ragtag crew of zombie ass-kickers, than I don't know what is. The little boy looks confused, but maybe some zombie taped a clever sign to Rick Grimes's back. They're natural pranksters.Here's an image from The Walking Dead graphic novel:Looks similar, right? Zombies and people. What more do you want?! The cast pic comes from the invite to the Comic-Con The Walking Dead party that I failed to receive. I'm sure it's in the mail though. You know how the mail is sometimes… **Wipes single tear from clown-make-uped cheek** (io9)

First Look At Ryan Reynolds As ‘Green Lantern’

Thursday, July 15 by

EW has just turned doctors' waiting rooms into Geek Heaven by adorning their cover with the first picture of Ryan Reynolds suited up as Green Lantern (and apparently there's a New Buffy as well).As previously discussed in comic shops and secondhand Toyotas, the Lantern's suit is 100% computer-generated. Much like the girlfriend you met online but have never seen face-to-face because of her numerous modeling commitments. Do you guys like it? To me, it looks a little too Photoshop-y. To illustrate that point, I present Exhibit B.Not that far off, right?

How to Write a Bromance

Thursday, July 15 by

You may cringe at the term ‘bromance’, but if someone asks if you like bromance movies, you will absolutely say yes. Quite unlike romantic comedies — which focus on the…

Magnolia Buys Joaquin Phoenix Rapumentary

Thursday, July 15 by

"You serious, bro?"A little backstory: Joaquin Phoenix went crazy, grew a beard, quit acting, started rapping, and Casey Affleck was there with a camera to capture it all. Online speculation has been that the entire breakdown is fake (and crazy). Now, we will have the opportunity to judge for ourselves this September.Deadline reports that Magnolia has bought the distribution rights to Casey Affleck's I'm Still Here: The Lost Year of Joaquin Phoenix. Or, as it should be called I Get Pooped On: That Time Somebody Pooped On Joaquin Phoenix.  That's right. The film is said to include cocaine use, hookers, oral sex with a publicist, loads of full frontal male nudity, and somebody poops on Joaquin as he sleeps. We're not naming any names, but c'mon.

Brett Ratner May Ruin ‘Hercules’

Thursday, July 15 by

Riots flare in Greece as Ratner is considered for 'Hercules'.Director Brett Ratner is in talks to ruin the legend of Hercules, The LA Times is reporting. Millennium/Nu Image has been developing the project for three years, and apparently just decided to say "f*ck it, I don't care any more, it's gonna suck no matter what we do." Shortly thereafter, Ratner was brought in for negotiations. At any rate, I'm hopeful we'll get to hear the line "Don't ever touch a Greek man's radio" sometime soon. I know it's pretty lazy for a hack like me to make fun of Ratner, but in all fairness to Brett…actually, I don't really have anything more to add to that statement.

The First Rule of ‘Ferris Club’: You Do Not Talk About ‘Ferris Club’

Thursday, July 15 by

What if Cameron from Ferris Bueller's Day Off was insane, and Ferris was nothing more than a figment of his sick imagination? According to /Film, this question, known as the Ferris Bueller Fight Club Theory, has been plaguing the the Internet for over a year (I wouldn't know, since I just got online for the first time in March). But thanks to the fine people at Classy Hands, the question now has an answer. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Ferris Club, a re-edit of FBDO in the style of Fight Club. It's pretty spot on, except I didn't catch any shots of Principal Rooney, as played by Jeffery Jones. He's a sex offender, don't ya know. See Ferris Bueller channel Tyler Durden after the jump.

Elizabeth Banks to Star in ‘Tink’

Wednesday, July 14 by

She played a slut in The 40-Year-Old Virgin. She played an amateur pornstar in Zach and Miri. Now, actress Elizabeth Banks is taking the next logical step: a live-action version of Tinkerbell, the magical pixie from Walt Disney's Peter Pan.Banks is developing and will star in Tink, a film that “plays with the mischievous nature" of the famous character. Hopefully, "mischievous nature" is code for topless breast play. Besides, a little female nudity will help postpone the inevitable gay-porn parody, Twink. (/Film)

Betty White Gives Back to the ‘Community’

Wednesday, July 14 by

"Community" is a hilarious show, and you should be watching more of it. Don't believe me? Then perhaps you'll listen to Mrs. Betty White. That's what NBC is hoping. White, a six-time Emmy winner and all around tough-as-nails bitch, will appear on the upcoming season premiere of the NBC comedy. She will play the character of June Bauer, described as "an esteemed, but slightly unhinged anthropology professor." The producers approached White because she is in the midst of a late-career renaissance fueled primarily by her popularity on the Internet. Other guest stars slated to appear include LOL Cats, Bacon, and Epic Beard Man. (HitFix)

Mark Ruffalo Might Possibly Be The Hulk in ‘The Avengers’ Maybe

Wednesday, July 14 by

Yeah YOU, dude.Mark Ruffalo is in late-stage talks to smash things as The Hulk in The Avengers. Marvel told Edward Norton to eff off and has been on a search to find his replacement. The name Joaquin Phoenix was even floating around in Stupid Rumor Land.Mark Ruffalo is one actor who never came to mind when I spent last night brainstorming possible Hulk replacements. I don't remember Bruce Banner laughing nervously and growing spotty facial hair in the comics. Perhaps casting agents should turn their attention to a certain phone call Mel Gibson made not too long ago. If that wasn't a expemplary audition and lesson in transformation from human to beast, then I'll eat my hat. My cake hat. (Deadline)

First Official Look At Anthony Hopkins As Steampunk Santa In Marvel’s ‘Thor’

Wednesday, July 14 by

Today we have our first official look at Sir Anthony Hopkins as Odin in Marvel's Thor. Oof. One minute you're turning in thoughtful, Oscar-worthy performances. The next, you're threatening to retire because the movie where you pretended to be a feral, chimp man didn't connect with audiences. Then all of a sudden, you're in some weird, muscley armor walking through a Roman sewer with a piece of foil double-sticked to your eye. Thus, is the life of the thespian.The LA Times debuted this photo along with the news that both Thor and Captain America will undergo a 3D post conversion process before hitting theaters. Marvel and the filmmakers are well aware of the challenges this decision creates, and that is why they will spend "an unprecedented amount of time" on the conversion. What do you expect them to do? They've already shot too much footage of hammers and shields being thrown at the camera to turn back now.

‘Covert Affairs’ Actress Piper Perabo

Wednesday, July 14 by

Piper Perabo is back from the wet t-shirt bars of Coyote Ugly to give us the new CIA plot twister USA series, "Covert Affairs." The show looks like "Burn Notice" but with a chick as the main character and minus Bruce Campbell. The last time we saw Piper, she drowned in Hugh Jackman's tank in The Prestige. Here's hoping her new character is craftier.A word from Piper: "It takes a lot of guts to get up on top of a bar and dance."A lot of guts, indeed. Or a lot of alcohol. More pics of Piper's pouty lips after the jump…

Will Tom Cruise Do ‘M:I-4′ or a Mechanical Bull Movie Next?

Wednesday, July 14 by

There is absolutely no question that Paramount wants Tom Cruise to return as Ethan Hunt in Mission: Impossible 4. THR has proof:"We absolutely are excited about having Tom Cruise star in this movie," is how Paramount vice chairman Rob Moore put it Tuesday. But the studio also is monitoring the overseas performance of Cruise's latest film, Knight and Day to see whether the star retains his longtime hold over foreign audiences. If that film should gross less than $200 million overseas, some industry observers think Paramount will consider recasting the Ethan Hunt role.Wait, what? They want him unless they don't want him? Get your sh*t together, Paramount. Tom Cruise needs to eat, and if you aren't going to feed him that carrot you're dangling than cut the man loose. Which brings me to the mechanical bull movie:Cruise attended a table read this week at the Saddle Ranch eatery in West Hollywood for a Sony project to be produced by Will Smith's production company, Overbrook Entertainment. The film in question, "Paper Wings," is set in urban cowboy world, and Saddle Ranch had the right ambience for the read because it features a mechanical bull.Let's not forget about the kitschy longhorn skulls on the walls and the melty cookie pie dessert. It's just like you're wrangling steer in the Montana mountains! Basically, everything depends on if foreign people like Tom Cruise or not. Mission: Impossible is a brand, and a sequel will likely succeed with or without him. In fact, if foreigners hate Cruise, it might be worth injecting the project with some fresh blood. The actor could probably help Paramount out with that. He must have a locker of it next to the room he keeps Katie chained up in.
