Wednesday, June 30 by

C'mon, guys. The smoke bothers his eye.Hugo Cabret, or the movie formerly known as The Invention of Hugo Cabret, has begin filming, with Martin Scorsese stationed behind a 3D camera shout-stuttering, "I-I-I wantit in my face more!" Two more actors have signed on to put it in Scorese's face. Jude Law and Ray Winstone join the already cast Sacha Baron Cohen, Ben Kingsley, Asa Butterfield, and Chloe Moretz.Christopher Lee, Helen McCrory, Frances de la Toru, and Richard Griffiths have also jumped into Hugo's sandbox. The film tells the tale of an orphan boy living a secret life in the walls of a Paris train station. He finds a broken machine and gets caught up in a magical adventure. No drugs or execution-style hits are involved, and Joe Pesci won't force himself on any women. (/Film)

Josh Hutcherson Is The New ‘Spider-Man’

Wednesday, June 30 by

A Spider-Man is born.Marc Webb and Sony have finally selected a young actor to play Peter Parker from their list of young actors not quite right for the role of Peter Parker. According to a source at Blue Sky Disney Blog, Josh Hutcherson has been offered the role in Sony's Spider-Man reboot and he has accepted. Casting has been in the works for some time and after extensive test shoots, Hutcherson has come out on top. Bear in mind that there hasn't been an official press release from the studio at this time. So if this turns out to be wrong, pick a fight with Disney's army of lawyers.Apologies to Jamie Bell, Andrew Garfield, Frank Dillane, Logan Lerman, Alden Ehrenreich, and Anton Yelchin. You guys played a good game out there, but you still lost. No victory Baskin Robbins visit for you.

Cover Your Everything for the ‘Jersey Shore’ Season 2 Teaser

Wednesday, June 30 by

They're in Miami, bitch. The east coast was cold, making it impossible to cop a sweet tan, so MTV crated up the cast of "Jersey Shore" and shipped them to Miami for Season 2 of the decline of totally juiced western civilization. As you can probably guess, there's more drinking, scratching, narcissim, and unintelligible negative comments toward ego-threatening houseguests, all with a built in fish out of water hook. Cocaine sales in South Beach are about to skyrocket. Check out the teaser after the jump…

‘Love Ranch’ Actress Gina Gershon

Wednesday, June 30 by

Gina Gershon has always made my film reel shutter, from being the best thing in the epic disaster Showgirls to playing a mob battling lesbian ex-con Bound, she knows how to bring th sizzle back into movie screen sexy. With her current film Love Ranch she gets to be in back into her cathouse gear and amping up the cinema sweat with Joe Pesci and Helen Mirren.A word from Gina: "Actresses are nightmares. I don't hang out with any of them. That's a problem with my profession. I try not to be like an actress."Don't act. Just be. You could take some lessons from Elizabeth Berkley in Showgirls. All that floppin' and twitchin' during the pool sex scene came natural to her. More pics of anti-actress Gina after the jump.

Edgar Wright Will Start Work On ‘Ant-Man’ Soon

Wednesday, June 30 by

Edgar Wright considers casting Vin Diesel.For those not in the know and too lazy to look it up, Ant-Man is a scientist who shrinks down to tiny size and controls the thoughts of ants via a special helmet. Yeah. Pretty dumb. So why is Edgar Wright making a movie about this? He undoubtedly has a golden touch, but can he turn Ant-Man into something watchable? Turns out, he hasn't given it too much thought.I haven’t actually started the second draft yet–I’m not going to be able to until this film [Scott Pilgrim] is out–but what we wrote for the first draft, and what Marvel really liked, is that it’s funny, but it’s a genre film. It’s about the level of comedy that Iron Man has. The idea is to make a high-concept genre film where it’s within another genre. His suit and its power is the big gadget and it takes place in the real world. I just wanted to do something that was slightly different than the superhero origin film. I felt that between that and the various mad scientist, crazy doctor films that we’ve all seen, this would be a way into an origin that was slightly different. I’m not really a multi-tasker–I haven’t done anything since Marvel liked our first draft.Word on the street is that Wright's first draft is amazing. I still think it's pretty dumb. Ants are really non-threatening unless you're planning to commit some kind of picnic-based heist. Or if you're lackadaisical when it comes to guarding your pee hole. And if that's the case, maybe you're just not well-suited for a life of crime. (Box Office Magazine)

New Old Spice Commercial Featuring Old Spice Guy Isaiah Mustafa

Wednesday, June 30 by

The Old Spice Guy Isaiah Mustafa is back in a brand new Old Spice commercial. This concept is still hilarious, and I enjoy his failed attempt at a swan dive. Though it's not head first, it somehow appears even more graceful. Soak up these 30 seconds of genius while you can, before Isaiah becomes NBC and Tyler Perry's bitch. (Vulture)

OMFG Ashley Greene and Thomas Jane Join ‘LOL’

Wednesday, June 30 by

The unfairly hot Ashley Greene and The Punisher Thomas Jane are in talks to join the Miley Cyrus film 'LOL'. Yes, we've come to the point where movies are being named after text message abbreviations. According to THR, "the story centers on a teenage girl (Cyrus) who is dumped by her more sexually experienced boyfriend while her divorcee mother (Demi Moore) struggles to move on with her life." Greene will play a high school bad girl, and Jane will be Cyrus' father. One problem. The movie stars Miley Cyrus, which means Disney will have a double padlock chastity belt secured on it. So Ashley Greene is playing a bad girl, but we won't get to see her do anything really bad. Such as seducing Demi Moore into some surprisingly graphic girl-on-girl action. …And now I apply the stand-by ice pack.

‘Scream 4′ To Feature Two Masks

Wednesday, June 30 by

An early concept.Everyone is on Twitter these days. Celebrities, fake celebrities, movie humor sites, and even the manufacturer of the mask used in the Scream films. It's only a matter of time before our younger cousins teach our grandparents how to tweet. But back to RJ Torbert of FunWorld, the creator of Scream's Ghostface. He recently leaked some information about the sequel on his Twitter page, and it looks like Neve Campbell isn't the only one sporting a new look:I expect there to be 2 diff masks, however I will say this, things changing very often – difficult to say without giving it away.Sent out additional GHOSTFACE to the SET today, a very interesting opening scene.Lets just say, the town of Woodsboro, has an obsession. There is your hint.Hmmm, okay let me guess. Obsession sounds liks Obsessed. Ali Larter starred in Obsessed and "Heroes" alongside Scream 4 star Hayden Panettiere. Hayden Panettiere was a child actor who turned out hot. Oh my God. I know who the killer is. Or killers are, I should say. It's Alyssa Milano and Christine Lakin. It's so obvious. Why didn't I see this before?!! **smokes pipe backwards** (ShockTillYouDrop)

Dominic Cooper Cast as Howard Stark in ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’

Wednesday, June 30 by

It's official: Dominic Cooper will play Howard Stark in the upcoming 'Captain America' film. Although rumors have been circulating about Cooper's involvement since May, Marvel did not send the official press release until yesterday. It's kind of like how you know your girlfriend is going to leave you for that guy at the gym, but she hasn't yet packed up her stuff.As I wrote in May, Howard Stark is a Howard Hughes-esq inventor and the founder of Stark Industries, the company later inherited by his son Tony (a.k.a. Iron Man). Assuming no one has changed the Wikipedia page from which I grabbed it, that information should still be accurate. (Collider)

‘Tron Legacy’ Lightcycles Selling On eBay

Tuesday, June 29 by

If you wouldn't mind being one of the coolest people in existence, and you have in your possession $35k, you should probably buy a functioning, street legal Tron Legacy lightcycle. The guys who built the Batpod replica are making only five and selling them on eBay:The Parker Brothers team is building 5 custom one off "Lightcycles" to the exact specs of the movie bikes. Each bike will be black with an accent color – 5 bikes with 5 different accent colors (red, blue, yellow, green, and orange). Unlike the "Batpod" replica, the "Lightcycle" is being built for everyday street use. Each bike will come with a manufacterers build sheet and a certificate of title with purchase. Each bike will come with either a high powered electric motor or a high performance gasoline motor and transmission depending on the buyers needs. Be the envy of everyone who sees this bike as it will make motorcycles as you now know them seem like antiques on the road. No future "Lightcycles" will be made to ensure the value of these custom motorcycles in the coming years.The back cover opens up at the push of a button and there is a neon glow that exits from the back of the bike to resemble the lightcycles colored light trail from the original game. These bikes will also come with a TRON style helmet (Not DOT Approved).Can you even imagine rolling up on your lightcycle at the local frozen yogurt joint? You'd strut to the counter with your helmet on, the customers starring in awe, and demand a Daft Punk sundae. The pizza-faced employee wouldn't know what that is, but he'd have to make it for you anyway because you own a f*cking lightcycle. You get Daft Punk sundaes whenever you damn well please.

Andy Serkis Motion Captures Role of Caesar In ‘Rise of the Apes’

Tuesday, June 29 by

Andy Serkis will be suiting up in weird, wirey crap once again to play Caesar, the chief chimp in charge of the Rise of the Apes. This should be a breeze for Serkis having worked extensively with motion capture to portray Gollum in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, the 25-foot gorilla in King Kong, and Captain Haddock in Spielberg's Tintin.I'm really interested to see what WETA comes up with for this film. Now that I know it will be Serkis making raspberries and throwing his poop around (generally known as pulling a Kiefer Sutherland), I'm much more interested. But what of Hollywood's animal actors? It looks like they will be completely frozen out of this production. I just don't have the heart to tell Buckaroo. He's already blown his anticipated earnings on that lavish banana hill.Poor bastard.

Fred Rides King Kong 360 3D

Tuesday, June 29 by

I remember my dad taking me on the original King Kong ride at Universal Studios Florida. It wasn’t a big deal, just a monsterous hydraulic monkey shaking your tram around. The cool part about it was it transported you to a world only seen on the screen, or at least someone made their best effort to put you there. Then you could bond with your dad over movies he was too old for and you were too young for.

When a fire on the Universal backlot destroyed the California equivalent of that ride, it became a mixed blessing. The new, revamped, bigger, badder King Kong 360 3-D was designed by Peter Jackson, based on his 2005 remake of the movie. Universal Studios premiered the ride, which opens this summer, with a Kong themed party on the backlot. There were snakes and monkeys and tigers from the Wildlife Waystation, tribal drummers and free trams through the new attraction.
