Peter Travers Says You’ll Love ‘Inception’ If You’re Not Stupid

Thursday, June 24 by

There's only one movie you're really dying to see this summer, and that's Christopher Nolan's Inception. I know you feel this way because I feel this way, and we're connected like E.T. and Elliott. Sorry you're so drunk right now. The alcohol helps me get through the day.Rolling Stone's Peter Travers was allowed to lay his eyes all over Inception, the lucky bastard, and a snippet of his positive review is now online. He said, in so many words, if you have brains capable of processing an intellectual and creative challenge you'll probably really like the film. Stupid heads, not so much.Check out Travers's spoiler free excerpt after the jump…

‘Grown Ups’ Actress Salma Hayek

Thursday, June 24 by

Salma Heyek is always a hot babe you can see at the movies whether its art house period drama Frida where she sports a unibrow, or action packed thrill ride Desperado. She can flex her drama and comedic talent with her two other well known assets. She'll be seen next as Adam Sandler's wife in the vacation reunion comedy Grown Ups. Kate Beckinsale in Click and now Salma. Lucky bastard… A word from Salma: "I think it's not a femme fatale when someone is not doing it to manipulate men or be like a black widow. She loves him. She does it out of love. She wants him so badly to stay with her."Who in God's name is running away from you?! He should be dragged through the streets and beaten. And then I will slowly move in as his replacement.More of Salma's finer things after the jump.

Breck Eisner Wants Timothy Olyphant To Play Snake Plissken In ‘Escape From New York’ Remake

Thursday, June 24 by

Like Tim Burton and Jon Favreau before him, it looks like Breck Eisner may have found his muse. The Escape From New York remaker is eager to re-team with his Crazies lead, Timothy Olyphant, and have him slip into Snake Plissken's iconic eye patch. Which was originally worn and sweated on by Kurt Russell in John Carpenter's film.Olyphant excels at kicking people's asses (usually while wearing a cowboy hat) on-screen, but I don't know if he's quite right for Snake Plissken. Plus, that eye patch probably smells really gamey by now. Keep in mind, this is merely Eisner's dream casting. Certainly not a done deal, as he himself pointed out to MovieHole:Creatively, he would be great for it. We have not yet discussed internally within the studio who will play Snake Plissken. There are many factors that go into those discussions. First and foremost, obviously, is the creative one. We can't make the movie unless we get the perfect Snake Plissken, and that's a tall order. There are very few guys that could do it. He would definitely be one of the guys who could. There is no question about that.Really? There have been no talks as to who will take the lead in the studio's blockbuster action movie? Yeah, right. Let's just poke out Gerard Butler's eye and get it over with.

10 Best Rock Star Film Performances

Thursday, June 24 by

We all wanted to grow up to be rock stars. And apparently rock stars wanted to grow up to be in the movies. Some embarrass themselves and decide against quitting their day job. But others actually aren’t half bad at the whole acting thing. There are many performances to choose from, but we decided to make matters easy for you and focus on ten of the top rock star performances on screen.

Bruce Willis and Helen Mirren Take The Odd Contract In ‘Red’ Trailer

Thursday, June 24 by

Robert Schwentke's film adaptation of the Warren Ellis graphic novel Red looks like The Losers recast for a CBS audience. It stars Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich (going full-Nugent), and Mary-Louise Parker as former CIA assassins forced into retirement. But old habits die hard and the boredom of retired life sets in, causing them to venture out on their own to murder-for-hire. And then when their old bosses try to have them killed, they reunite to take the fight to the CIA's front door. Why is the CIA always trying to kill its former employees? That hardly happens with any other profession. Better off safe than sorry though. That's why I've been systematically eliminating the customers from my boyhood paper route. That, and because of their ethnicities. HELEN MIRREN POPS A CAP AFTER THE JUMP…

Shyamalan and ‘Buried’ Writer Locked In for ‘Twelve Strangers’

Wednesday, June 23 by

M. Night Shyamalan is set to produce, with Chris Sparling set to write, Twelve Strangers, a thriller that involves a jury deliberating a case involving the supernatural. Ah see, now the picture makes sense. Sparling wrote Buried, the movie where Ryan Reynolds is stuck in a coffin underground for ninety minutes. There's also additional details on the script that Shyamalan is currently shopping around town. The other day we reported that Bruce Willis, Bradley Cooper, and Gwyneth Paltrow are set to star, but we had no idea what the project's about, except that it's probably something mysterious. Deadline enlightens us: "Bradley Cooper would play a father on a desperate search for his missing child.  It might stray into Taken terrain, but the father taps into some supernatural powers to aid the search." Maybe he taps into the supernatural powers of Juror Number 5 in the aforementioned project. Whoa. Meta. A studio has yet to scoop up the script, but it's likely someone will bite. No exec wants to get their nose broken by Paltrow while Willis and Cooper watch from afar in horror.

Daniel Radcliffe Replacing Wand With Rifle for ‘All Quiet on the Western Front’

Wednesday, June 23 by

The new guy brought his own saddle.Remember All Quiet on the Western Front, that book you were supposed to read in high school English class but instead you waited for your teacher to screen the 1930, or 1979, movie? Yeah, they're remaking that and Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) is set to star. Harry (Daniel) will play a young German soldier fighting in the trenches of France.This remake seems pointless considering the original already won the Oscar for Best Picture, the highest honor that can be bestowed on a film. But I guess with today's technology the filmmakers can really take those mustard gas scenes to the next level. Add some 3D and audiences would almost be able to feel their nervous systems shutting down. Right on, Innovation. Right on. (Variety)

‘Twilight Eclipse’ Fans Abandon Their Parents’ Basements To Camp Out For Premiere

Wednesday, June 23 by

Roughing it the same way our forefathers did.There has never been a more lucrative time to be a cat-sitter. With Twilight Eclipse set to play at the Los Angeles Film Festival one week before it opens nationwide on June 30th, eager fans have assembled en masse to get a glimpse of their favorite stars. In fact, if you stroll by there right now, you'll see a "tent city" built by the Twihards. Just like our early settlers. Though they're more likely to suffer from Pop Rox in their blankets than small pox.It's now being reported that 550 of the overzealous nut jobs will be rewarded for their stalking by being guaranteed spots on the red carpet at Eclipse's Thursday premiere. The lesson here is if you obsess over someone hard enough, you'll be granted close access to them. Now, who amongst you has Bieber Fever and an attraction to hunting knives? (DailyMail)

Jason Reitman Options ‘SNL’ Writer’s ‘Elliot Allagash’

Wednesday, June 23 by

Jason Reitman has optioned the movie rights to the book Elliot Allagash. The private school satire, written by "Saturday Night Live" writer Simon Rich, tells the tale of a boy named Seymour Herson who is picked on until Elliot Allagash decides to be his mentor. It's unclear if Reitman will direct or just produce. Rich is on-board to pen the adaptation.Allagash is described as a “teen who regularly gets drunk and enjoys villainy.” What teen doesn't enjoy getting drunk and commiting villianous acts? When I was a teen all I did was guzzle Red Dog and tie damsels to train tracks. In fact, our gang's initiation required us to chug a quart of vodka and fasten our enemies to logs on the conveyor belt at the local saw mill. Now the big thing is drive by shootings. No imagination!
