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.

Connect New ‘Green Lantern’ Character Posters to Make One Awesome Poster

Monday, July 26 by

Sounds like Blake's starring in softcore porn.
Warner Bros. dropped these new teaser character posters for Green Lantern. They're not unlike Power Rangers in the sense that if you put them together they form one gigantic poster that can do battle with other gigantic posters. Personally though, I think the Blake Lively poster alone should bring all other marketing materials to its knees.

Daniel Craig Confirmed For David Fincher’s ‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’

Monday, July 26 by

Daniel Craig (pictured above as Indiana Jones and the Raiders Of The Iron Man Prop Closet) has been officially confirmed as the lead in David Fincher's adaptation of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. Now that the Bond franchise won't be calling upon him anytime soon, Craig is free to pop over to Sweden to shoot with Fincher as soon as he wraps Jon Favreau's Cowboys and Aliens.
Craig will play a journalist who teams up with a young hacker to take down a powerful Swedish family, just like Inspector Gadget (Ed. Note: it's nothing like Inspector Gadget). Fincher's still on the hunt for his tatted female lead, reportedly having narrowed his list down to five young actresses: Emily Browning, Rooney Mara, Sophie Lowe, Sara Snook, and French cinema royalty Lea Seydoux are all up for the part. But only one will be deemed worthy of the basilisk tramp stamp. Developing… (Deadline)

‘True Blood’ Recap: I Got a Right to Sing the Blues S3E6

Monday, July 26 by

Previously on "True Blood," Jason hooked up with mysterious newcomer Crystal. Lafayette got a new boyfriend/stalker, Jesus. Franklin proposed to Tara. Eric found out that the King killed his Viking dad a thousand years ago or so. Sam and Tommy bonded, much to the chagrin of their white trash dad. Bill went to Sookie to tell her to leave, the King and Cooter followed and Sookie used her Five Point Palm Exploding Heart Technique on Cooter's face. And now onto "True Blood" episode 3.6, “I Got a Right to Sing the Blues.”

Apparently the hand trick can only be done once because the King drags Sookie and Bill back to his pad. Bill waits until they're safely back in the King's house before he stakes the King's bodyguard who turns into a pile of strawberry preserves.

Debbie Gibson and Tiffany Cake-Wrestle In Clip From ‘Mega Python Vs. Gatoroid’

Monday, July 26 by

Having milked the teet of stunt-casting success by pitting 80's pop singers-turned-Playboy centerfolds Debbie Gibson against Mega Shark and Giant Octopus, and Tiffany against Mega Pirahna, Syfy now has them squaring off to fight their most dangerous opponent yet… each other. This clip from Mega Python vs. Gatoroid has it all. The only thing missing is Jordan Knight with his pants down. Check it out, the gals (?) engage in an epic battle that features slapping, hair-pulling, mini-dresses, rolling around, cream pies, cleavage, and absolutely no one lifting a finger to break it up. Okay, old woman deputy. Just stand there and whince. That's one approach to law enforcement.

‘The Gates’ Actress Chandra West

Monday, July 26 by

Chandra West has been the forgetten strong hold of TV hotness either when she is playing doctor on "NYPD Blue" or on the short lived HBO series "John From Cincinnati." She lends her blonde vixen stare to this summer's ABC series "The Gates," where she plays a suburban witch (a.k.a. b*tch?).
A word from Chandra: "I do like vampires. I don't know if it's the neck or feeding off people's blood, which doesn't sound too appeasing when you think of it."
Amazing. Another girl who likes vampires. Maybe you can my gf can gab about it over cosmos.

Maggie Q Half-Naked In ‘Nikita’ Poster

Monday, July 26 by

The CW released this poster of extremely attractive Asian actress Maggie Q for their new series "Nikita." Here, Q sits incorrectly in a chair while dressed like a Mortal Kombat character. Really, what is the practical use of those sleeves? To keep certain sections of the arm warm??
Anyway, we haven't seen any footage yet because Longshanks was too busy not getting into the Marvel panel at Comic-Con to see the "Nikita" panel, but the show has all the elements of a hit. Maggie Q, tight clothes, and girls fighting (probably in the rain). At any rate, I'll tune in just to get a better look at that tattoo. What is it? A flower or scorpion or something? We're really going to need a closer look at that ass, CW. (WarmingGlow)

Comic-Con 2010: ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides’ Teaser Trailer

Monday, July 26 by

In 3D, you could smell the rum.
Right after the Tron Legacy panel at Comic-Con, Disney screened a teaser trailer for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. It basically features Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow letting everyone know that the movie is a thing and they can see it next summer. It was in 3D only so Capt. Jack could awkwardly shove a bottle of rum into the mostly underage audience. I took an imaginary swig, but imagine all those tween alcoholics in attendence. The 3D must have been torture for them.

A Quick Look At ‘Drive Angry’

Monday, July 26 by

In this brief trailer for Drive Angry 3D (Shot In 3D), a 3D Nicolas Cage is on a vengeance mission to hunt down and kill the agent who talked him into starring in The Sorcerer's Apprentice.
We don't see much here except for bad dialogue and explosions. He hardly even drives angry. But have patience. Nicolas Cage won't be sticking a 3D sawed-off under the audience's nose until February, so there's still plenty of time between now and then to make this look less like a John Cena movie.

Dreamworks' has released a four minute trailer for its new animated feature, Megamind.

The film tells the story of an evil supervillain (Megamind) who is forced to deal with the consequences of his actions once his evil quest for power is finally realized. Luckily for Dreamworks, the trailer looks a lot funnier than what I just described.

Great Scott! Seth MacFarlane Buys ‘Back to the Future’ DeLorean

Monday, July 26 by

In a move that can only be described as heavy, Seth MacFarlane purchased an exact replica of the time-traveling DeLorean from Back to the Future, TMZ is reporting. The creator of "Family Guy" and "American Dad" has put about $20,000 worth of customized equipment into the vehicle in order to match its onscreen counterpart. According to one insider who has seen the car up close, it is nothing short of "insane."

Some people will say that MacFarlane is a real butthead, and that spending so much money is about as useful as a screen door on a battleship. But those people should make like a tree and get outta here.

‘Priest’ Trailer Brings Vampires to the Future

Monday, July 26 by

Oh good, another friggen vampire movie. But in all fairness, at least Priest takes place in the future, and to be honest, looks kind of awesome.
"In a world wrecked by centuries of violent warfare between man and vampire, a warrior priest turns against the church in order to save his kidnapped niece from a homicidal gang of vampires."
Between this character and the priest in Machete, I'm beginning to think the Vatican has launched some sort of PR campaign to make priests seem more like bad asses and less like effeminate child-molesters. Good luck with that. (Coming Soon)

Comic-Con: ‘Tron Legacy’ Panel Video

Sunday, July 25 by

The first event I caught at this year's Comic-Con was the Tron Legacy panel, moderated by Patton Oswalt, a favorite comedian of mine and yours. I'm not allowed to show you the footage that was screened, although you can read my brief description in my Thursday's adventures recap, but I have video of the panel discussion. You can also check out the awesome new trailer here.
All of the actors were in attendence (for a third year in a row), including Garret Hedlund, Olivia Wilde, Michael Sheen, and Jeff Bridges, as well as director Joseph Kosinski. They enlighten us on the process of making the film, the flashy difference between Tron Legacy and Tron proper, and how Olivia kicked-ass in high heels. You really shouldn't need much more convincing to see the film when it opens on December 17, 2010.

Let Me Watch the ‘Let Me In’ Trailer

Sunday, July 25 by

Sweet stache, Elias!
Finally, a Hollywood project that involves vampires.

Let Me In, directed by Cloverfield's Matt Reeves, is the story of a awkward boy who unknowingly befriends a young vampire girl. Of course by "young," I mean "young looking." She's probably hundreds of years old since she's a goddamn vampire.

At any rate, before too long, people end up getting drained of their blood, the local law enforcement starts to take notice, and this kid realizes his new friend is a monster. I'm sure it ends with the two of them being elected king and queen at the big middle school dance.

If you like the vampire genre, you'll probably like this. If not, you'll still be able to enjoy Elias Koteas with a mustache, which looks awesome.
