2nd ‘The Social Network’ Teaser Updates Its Status

Thursday, July 8 by

Aaron Sorkin burn. The second teaser for David Fincher's The Social Network has dropped, and it doesn't give us much more than the first one. It swaps bold, dramatic text with scrolling Facebook status updates written by the film's characters. The whole thing seems like a bad idea from a legal standpoint. Why would Mark Zuckerberg want all of his backstabbing documented on the very site that made him millions? And why do none of the updates inform me who's drinking alone tonight, who just heard their favorite song on the radio, and who just made a killer grilled cheese sandwich? It's those mundane details that will cement the realism of the narrative. Check out the second teaser after the jump…

Your 62nd Primetime Emmy Nominees

Thursday, July 8 by

 The 62nd Primetime Emmy Award Nominations were announced this morning with "Glee" leading the pack with 19 noms, and Sofia Vergara presenting the nominees with heaving bosoms. Emmy is obviously with Coco, as O'Brien's "Tonight Show" was nominated while Leno's was not. Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton were justly recognized for their work on "Friday Night Lights" but will have stiff competition going up against "Breaking Bad's" Bryan Cranston and "The Good Wife's" Julianna Margulies.Notable snubs are Ed O'Neill, "Community," and Charlie Sheen for his work on "Two And A Half Men." That man has done so much for comedy and sports car driven into ravine removal, and deserves so much more. Oh, so much more.LIST OF NON-BORING NOMINEES AFTER THE JUMP…

Cinema’s Last Hope: “Weird Al” Yankovic Developing Another Feature Film

Thursday, July 8 by

Move over Frank Darabont. Looks like there may be another Hawaiian-shirted director in town. We reported previously about "Weird Al" Yankovic's deal with Cartoon Network to air whatever lunacy he conjured up. Part of that deal was to create a live-action feature length film, but now Cartoon Network has decided against creating long-form live-action content for television. "Weird" is taking it all in stride though, and doing his best to get this project up on the big screen.As I had previously reported, after years of negotiation, I was able to sign a major production deal with Cartoon Network to provide content for them.  They were primarily interested in live action features, so I pitched them on a movie idea.  They loved it, and gave me the go-ahead to start working on the screenplay.  I worked closely with them for several months, and after submitting my 4th draft, just when I was just about to get the official green light… Cartoon Network let me know that they were no longer in the feature film business.…it’s not entirely bad news – the script went into turnaround, which means I’m free to sell it somewhere else.  (Come to think of it, that was pretty much the exact thing that happened when I was trying to get UHF made.)  So maybe it’ll get produced at some point, maybe it won’t… all I know is, I’ll have a lot more free time this fall.Maybe it will, maybe it won't?! No way, "Weird." This is Hollywood. That apathetic approach won't get you anywhere in this town. If you want to see your dreams on the silverscreen, you need to strap on your accordian, bust into those boardrooms, and show those overpaid dick krinkles just who the eff they're dealing with. Don't leave there until you hear the words "go picture." You're "Weird Al" Yankovic, and you don't take no sh*t from nobody. And make sure they validate your parking. (Al's Blog)

‘Avatar’ Returning to Theaters, For Some Reason

Thursday, July 8 by

Awwwwe, not again! I got greedy!In what might as well be billed as the Please Give Us $12 More Dollars Tour, James Cameron's Avatar is returning to 3D and IMAX 3D theaters on August 27th. For those of you who are skeptical about paying for the "re-release" of a film that was still in theaters six months ago, 20th Century Fox has upped the ante by adding more than eight minutes of never before seen footage! If you're paying $12 or more for a 3D ticket, that comes out to well over a dollar-per-minute of new footage.The only way I'll pay to see Avatar again is if the new material consists of Jake Sully injuring himself to the point where his Avatar is confined to a wheelchair, just like his human body. Now that's irony! (Coming Soon)

Angelina Goes ‘MacGyver’ in Latest ‘Salt’ Clip

Thursday, July 8 by

MacGyver's rocket assembly was much sexier.I was going to title this piece "Angelina Rubs 'Salt' in the Wound," but knowing our readers (hi Dad), I figured it would come across as dirty. Besides, considering the content, the "MacGyver" reference is much more appropriate.In the latest clip from Salt, Angelina's character reacts to being cornered like any good super spy would by constructing a rocket launcher out of a fire extinguisher, an office chair and some common "interrogation room" chemicals. Granted, the CIA may keep rocket fuel in their interrogation rooms, which is why I'm willing to suspend disbelief.Watch Angelina Jolie go "MacGyver" after the jump.

Danny Trejo, Tom Lennon Join Cast of ‘Harold & Kumar 3′

Wednesday, July 7 by

Good news for pot heads everywhere! The cast for the next installment of the Harold and Kumar series has been announced. Aside from returning cast members Kal Penn, John Cho and Neil Patrick Harris, some impressive names are joining the film's roster. Joining the "Harold & Kumar" ensemble are Tom Lennon ("17 Again," TV's "Reno 911") and Danny Trejo ("Grindhouse"). Rounding out the new film cast are Amir Blumenfeld (TV's "Pranked," CollegeHumor.com), David Burtka (TV's "How I Met Your Mother"), Fred Melamed ("A Serious Man"), Patton Oswalt ("The Informant!") and Richard Riehle ("Halloween II"). Part 3 takes place six years after the last film, and centers around the duo's attempts to replace Harold's father's beloved Christmas tree, which was accidentally set ablaze by Kumar. For those of you who are too stoned to keep up with such a complex plot, not to worry. The film is being shot in 3D, which means all you'll have to do is sit back and look at the cool shapes and colors racing toward your face. What an age we live in! (Coming Soon)

Denzel Washington Running to ‘Safe House’

Wednesday, July 7 by

Birdie.Denzel Washington is in talks to star in Safe House, an original spy thriller set in South Africa, but let's not make this a racial thing. The script, written by David Guggenheim, "follows a young U.S. intelligence agent who must go on the run with a newly arrived prisoner (Denzel’s potential role) after his titular safe house comes under attack — think of a mix between Collateral and Three Days of the Condor." Sounds more like a mix between Bulletproof and Spy Hard. Guggenheim sparked a bidding war with the script this past winter.A spy thriller wouldn't be my next project choice for Denzel, but I don't commission 10% of his salary to tell him what sets to show up on. The overall concept for Safe House seems stale though, and I can't understand why studios would clamor over one another to secure it. Maybe Denzel knows something I don't. Like where I put my car keys. I gotta get out of this trunk before the sun sets. The desert gets chilly at night. (Vulture)

Mike Judge Plans ‘Beavis and Butthead’ Revival

Wednesday, July 7 by

Good news. It looks like the monkeyslaps at MTV will show music videos again. Of course, they will be packaged with commentary from Beavis and Butthead. The deals aren't in place yet, but Mike Judge is planning on bringing the buttmunches out of retirement for a new set of 30 adventures. If picked up, the show will stick to its former format of sketch-videos-sketch with the focus being on more contemporary artists. In other words, there will be heated debate on who has the bigger schlong, Beavis or Lady Gaga. Smart money's on Gaga. (JoBlo)

‘Vampires Suck’ Trailer Gets ‘Twilight’s’ Goat

Wednesday, July 7 by

The inevitable Twlight Saga spoof has been unleashed, and its name is Vampires Suck. All things considered, the trailer has some decent jokes and the standard girls taking off their clothes to reveal bikinis bit. No sign of Carmen Electra yet, but I'm pretty sure she's contractually obligated to appear in any and all movie parodies. Vampires Suck only skewers the first two Twlights, so you better believe there'll be a sequel. Fox would be stupid not to capitalize on Summit's success capitalizing on Stephenie Meyer's capitalizing on abstinence. Vampires Suck hits theaters August 18, 2010. Check out the trailer after the jump…

Pic of Bald Colin Farrell in ‘Horrible Bosses’

Wednesday, July 7 by

Kudos to Colin Farrell for going au naturale on the set of the new Seth Gordon-directed comedy Horrible Bosses. I always knew his hair was too thick and lustrous to be real. The combover does an awesome job of transforming him into a superior I'd like to stab in the ear with a Bic.Horrible Bosses follows three friends who all have horrible bosses they want to end, so they decide to swap their murders like in that old Hitchcock flick Strangers on a Train. Netflix it, ya uncultured swine. The three guys are played by Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, and Charlie Day, and the bosses are Colin Farrell as coke head exec, Kevin Spacey as a master manipulator, and Jennifer Aniston as nymphomaniac dentist. Also, Jamie Foxx plays a scam artist named Motherfucker Jones, but I'm guessing you're too busy imagining getting banged by Aniston in a dentist's chair. (NYPost)

‘Men In Black 3′ Plot Details Send Will Smith Back To the Sixties

Wednesday, July 7 by

Kinda hot, right?Plot details for Men In Black 3 have entered the Internet's atmosphere and they reveal the film will be set in the 1960's. In the film, Will Smith must travel through time to stop Jemaine Clement's evil alien Yaz from killing Agent K. The thought being that without K around to defend the galaxy time and time again, the world will be completely destroyed. Which is bad. But on the other hand, we wouldn't have to suffer through Tommy Lee Jones' portrayal of Two-Face in Batman Forever. It's a toss up for me.The Apple Store appears in the film as a time travel hub with the iPhone being the primary device for personal time travel. It still won't be able to make or accept calls though. Science fiction can only take you so far. (JoBlo)

‘Entourage’ Actress Autumn Reeser

Wednesday, July 7 by

Autumn Reeser, the "Entourage" agent babe Lizzy Grant, has been a go to girl for TV and direct to DVD movies. Having shown up in The Lost Boys: The Tribe and Smokin Aces 2 : Assassin's Ball, she has added a much needed sexy kick to what would be standard cash-milking sequels. Your girlfriend probably recognizes Autumn from "The O.C." and secretly hates her. A word from Autumn: "I liked being a player in high school but I definitely was not a bitch."Girls as hot as Autumn deserve the right to chip away at our self-esteem. In fact, it's an honor.More pics of my favorite season (RIMSHOT!) after the jump.

Ridley Scott and Kevin MacDonald To Make YouTube Documentary

Wednesday, July 7 by

Have you always wanted to co-direct a movie with Ridley Scott but have been prevented from doing so by your crippling fear of 30 Odd Foot of Grunts guitarist Russell Crowe? Good news. Scott and State of Play director Kevin MacDonald are partnering with YouTube and Sundance to give everyday sacks like you the chance at finding your inner filmmaker.The documentary will be called Life In a Day, and feature video entries from DIY filmmakers around the world. The only real guideline is that you need to shoot and submit your footage on July 24th, 2010. Everyone whose footage is selected will receive a co-director credit in what is surely to be the longest opening credits sequence ever. This idea has actually sparked the imagination of several directors. In fact, Uwe Boll's firsthand experience with Epic Fails has him in talks to direct Break: The Movie (Ed. Note: Lie), and Brett Ratner is spending a lot of time on ChatRoulette. A frightening amount of time actually. (THR)
