Guillermo del Toro’s ‘Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark’ Trailer

Tuesday, August 3 by

Here comes the tickle monster!
Miramax has released the trailer for Don't Be Afraid of the Dark, a horror film remake written and co-produced by scare guru Guillermo del Toro. I saw this first at Comic-Con (don't be jealous, it doesn't suit you), and I'll admit, the last part made me jump in my seat. But I'm still totally 100% man. They also screened a clip that dealt with teeth and a hammer. Use your imagination. Nope, it was still cooler than that.
Don't Be Afraid of the Dark centers on a young girl who is sent to live with her father and his new girlfriend, and if that wasn't bad enough, she discovers creatures in her new home who want to claim her as one of their own. It's not to be confused with the old Nickelodeon show "Are You Afraid of the Dark?" even though I'm sure you can find almost the exact story in the archives.
Don't Be Afraid of the Dark hits theaters January 21, 2011.

10 Fake But Memorable Movie Websites

Tuesday, August 3 by

Middle Men, hitting theaters Friday, is the tale of Jack Harris (played by Luke Wilson) who has a successful career fixing problem companies. He meets Wayne Beering (Giovanni Ribisi) and Buck Dolby (Gabriel Macht), who've invented a way for adult entertainment to be sold over the internet. Based on a true story, I'm sure they won't go as far as to mention the actual name of the website. It will probably be something close to the actual website URL but funnier for movie fans.

The internet has a played a part in the plot of countless movies. In some cases it's a brief mention that just moves the story along but in others it's a main focus that actually drives the storyline. Here are ten movies that use fake websites. Some of the website names might be even more popular than the actual movie.

Olivia Wilde Appears Naked In ‘Cowboys & Aliens’

Tuesday, August 3 by

Like this but nakeder.
We've been writing about Cowboys & Aliens for a little while now, but haven't really formed an opinion on whether or not we're looking forward to it. Until now because Olivia Wilde is appearing naked again. Adam Beach (who plays Nat Colorado) was recently interviewed and began describing the on-set experience of Olivia Wilde's nude scene.
"We just finished shooting Olivia Wilde naked in front of a bonfire in front of 500 Apache warriors. That was beautiful. You won't get to see what I saw, but you'll get a glimpse."
First of all, that's going to make things awkward for Adam at the wrap party. Secondly, big deal. We'll probably only get to see her back and maybe a slightly moon-lit ass. Thirdly, I'd call standing naked in front of 500 Apache warriors a pretty intense experience. But if you're Gary Busey, you'd call it Tuesday. (Jam)

Cera and Tambor Talk ‘Arrested Development’ Movie

Tuesday, August 3 by

For years, losers like myself have staved off our suicidal thoughts with the hope of an Arrested Development movie. But month after month, it's a roller coaster of emotions as rumors about the on-again off-again project mount. But now comes a sliver of hope! Michael Cera and Jeffrey Tambor both seem to think it's happening!
Based on interviews the stars did at Comic-Con, the film almost seems inevitable. Unfortunately, neither star has any specifics, although Tambor went as far as to say he may need a walker by time the film gets under way.

Strange, I never thought I'd use the term c*cktease and Jeffrey Tambor in the same sentence. Michael Cera, on the other hand…me-ow! (Empire Online)

Jason Reitman Makes a Deal with the Diablo

Tuesday, August 3 by

Jason Reitman has signed on to direct Diablo Cody's latest screenplay, Young Adult. Reitman, who also directed Cody's teen-pregnancy film, Juno, will have Charlize Theron as a lead, playing an author who finds success writing under a pseudonym.

The film will be Reitman's first since directing the Oscar winning Up in the Air, and will be Cody's first since penning the box-office bomb, Jennifer's Body. If you combine those two titles, you have Up in Jennifer's Body, which I think sounds a hell of a lot more interesting than Young Adult, but that's just me. (Cinema Blend)

Nicolas Cage Won’t ‘Trespass’ with Joel Schumacher

Monday, August 2 by

With just two weeks to go before filming begins, Nicholas Cage has pulled out of Joel Schumacher's Trespass, Deadline is reporting. Cage was to star along side Nicole Kidman, playing a husband who is kidnapped with his wife by a group of thugs looking for ransom. Cage's departure leaves Schumacher and Co. scrambling to find a suitable replacement. Liev Schreiber is rumored to be in the running.

If there's one thing to be said for Cage, it's that he likes to work. And while he's made some great movies, he also churns out horrible films without blinking an eye (The Wicker Man, Ghost Rider). So if he's walking away from your project, it might be time to consider hanging up your director's helmet.
See Nic Cage get his face stung off by bees after the jump…

Oregon Trail: The Movie Official Trailer – Watch more Game Trailers
I was obsessed with this game in elementary school. It made learning a fun adventure full of snake bites and terminal cases of dysentery. No wonder I got so bored with education as I rose through the grades. There weren't nearly enough snake bites my Junior year. Too much dysentary, sure, but not enough snake bites. (HalfDayToday)

Sandra Bullock and Steve Carell Holding Out for ‘The Abstinence Teacher’

Monday, August 2 by

Five years after striking indie cinema gold with Little Miss Sunshine, Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris look like they'll finally step behind the camera again. The duo have been attempting to bring Tom Perrotta's novel "The Abstinence Teacher" to screens since 2006 but, after multiple setbacks, it was believed the project was dead.
Production Weekly has reported the project is back from the grave with the news that Sandra Bullock and Steve Carell are attached to star. Bullock will play the sex-ed teacher at odds with conservative community members, and Carell will play the born-again soccer coach she finds herself falling for. I'm not sure what wacky circumstance will cause them to pretend to be married, but this is a Sandra Bullock movie. It's bound to be a plot-point.

Tina Fey Did a Bank Commercial

Monday, August 2 by

All up-and-coming comedians need to pay the bills somehow, and acting in TV commercials is a better somehow than busing tables. Tina Fey may be a big hot shot deal now, but back in the day she was a Mutual Savings Bank loyalist. At least for 30 seconds. I guess this is how you said "hi" in the 90s?

Clive Owen Sounds Awesome In ‘Trust’ Trailer

Monday, August 2 by

David Schwimmer has taken his message behind enemy lines by posting the trailer for David Schwimmer's Trust: Based On the Play "Trust" By David Schwimmer online. Sadly, since returning to investigate the debris of his dead planet many light years away, Chris Hansen isn't available to save our daughters from the clutches of sexual predators. Clive Owen stars as the dad in this cautionary tale about the dangers of letting your child chat with strangers online, and he should really step up his parenting a bit. You never know when your daughter's AOL Buddy might turn out to be a wolf in dog-wearing-sunglasses clothing.

Sookie found Bill but was immediately caught, and then bit, by Lorena. And now on to this week's episode…

‘Middle Men’ Actress Laura Ramsey

Monday, August 2 by

Laura Ramsey is known in most circles as the 'Hollywood female equivalent to Kurt Warner'. My guess is she's called this due to to her rise from a Wisconsin waitress to working leading lady in less than a year. Laura has starred in She's the Man with Amanda Bynes, Lords of Dogtown with Nikki Reed, and Venom with Method Man. One of these co-stars in not like the others…
A word from Laura: "Method Man smells like cabbage."
Yep, that sounds about right.

Josh Peck, Margarita Levieva, and Brian Geraghty Line Up for ‘ATM’

Monday, August 2 by

Margarita Levieva (hot Lisa P. from Adventureland) and two dudes (Brian Geraghty, Josh Peck) have signed on to star in the ATM thriller ATM. Chris Sparling (Buried) wrote the script and David Brooks is directing. The film centers on "three co-workers who make a late-night visit to an ATM and end up in a desperate fight for their lives when they become trapped by an unknown man."
The whole horrific night comes about when the three co-workers stop for some late night pizza after a company Christmas party. They need cash to pay for the slices and end up getting stuck in an ATM vestibule for ninety minutes with a hooded mad man standing between them and their car. Of course, their cellphones are either back in the vehicle or out of battery. Clearly this film is a cautionary tale for anyone craving a midnight snack. It's not worth the risk. Or the caloriiiiiiies! (THR)
