Paul Anderson (the bad one) Directing ‘Buck Rogers’ in 3D

Thursday, March 25 by

"Whatch you computin' bout, Willis?!!"I have good news and bad news. Good news is that Paul Anderson is directing another movie. Bad news is that I'm referring to Paul W.S. Anderson, the Resident Evil and AvP director. Not Paul Thomas Anderson, the guy who did Boogie Nights and those other movies I'm supposed to understand and like when I hang out with my friends who read.Anderson (the bad one) is teaming up with Paradox Entertainment for a 3D version of the classic sci-fi Buck Rogers. The property previously had Frank Miller attached to direct until it was discovered that he doesn't know how to direct. I'm not sure why Anderson (the bad one) would be interested in telling this Silver Age story when most of his work leans toward the gritty and gothic but I'll be interested to see how he squeezes Slipknot onto the movie's soundtrack. In hindsight, I guess I didn't have good news at all. Sorry you guys. (Deadline)

Third ‘The Last Airbender’ Trailer is Airbendier

Thursday, March 25 by

If I had one criticism of Martin Scorsese's Kundun, it was due to the total lack of miniature monks bitch slapping their enemies with the elements. Luckily we have this trailer for M. Night Shyamalan's The Last Airbender to pick up the slack. Good job, Marty. In this latest trailer, they lay out the plot of Star Wars. Which is nice of them but I've already seen that movie. But I guess this is a fantasy movie for the kids. The one's that haven't seen Harry Potter or Percy Jackson more specifically. You know, the popular kids. Witness Shyamalan's bid to redeem himself after the jump.

‘Hot Tub Time Machine’ Actress Collette Wolfe

Thursday, March 25 by

Collette Wolfe was studying sociology in North Carolina when she got a role in The Foot Fist Way. She married the film's director Jody Hill, starred in his next movie Observe and Report, and now she's on her way to comedy stardom. She's got the whole dumb, blond bimbo thing down pat in Hot Tub Time Machine.  A word from Collette:  "I remember breastfeeding. My mom may have had a perm during said breastfeeding."Your mom sounds like a hip breastfeeder. High five!See why breast milk does a body good after the jump.

‘Scott Pilgrim vs. The World’ Teaser

Thursday, March 25 by

The Scott Pilgrim vs. The World teaser is finally here, and it is marvelous, my darlings. Edgar Wright's kinetic style is abundently clear throughout every frame, split-screen, and smash cut. My only grievance is that Michael Cera can't seem to stop playing Michael Cera. He kicks serious ass in this film, but in between the comic strip infused action sequences Michael still shyly tries to grasp the concepts that Mary Elizabeth Winstead lays out for him. I'll be rooting for him all the same because God knows Chris Evans needs to be taken down a peg after securing Captain America, but I hope he erases the elipsies from his speech pattern by the end of the film, a.k.a. grows some balls. Check out the teaser below. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World SMASH! into theaters August 13, 2010.

Diablo Cody’s ‘Young Adult’ is For Serious, You Guys

Thursday, March 25 by

Mandate Pictures has optioned Diablo Cody's Young Adult which she describes as "pretty serious and f*cked up." I take that to mean that the characters won't refer to one another as home-skillet.The script is about a fiction writer who moves back to her hometown and begins to stalk her high school sweetheart, who is now married with a child. Here's Cody describing her motivation for the project:"You don’t get to see women be antiheroes that often, where it’s like somebody like Mickey Rourke, who gets a comeback in The Wrestler. It’s rarer that you’ll have a studio say, “Let’s have an actress come back and be ugly!”This is very true except for the Oscar contenders Monster, Frida, Boy's Don't Cry, Precious, Transamerica, and the, ummm, Kid's Choice Award-nominated Ugly Betty.On a side-note, why does Diablo Cody look like a completely different person everytime I see her? Is she a shape-shifter? I bet it's that she's a shape-shifter. (Vulture)

Brad Bird Is Top Choice to Direct ‘Mission: Impossible 4′

Thursday, March 25 by

Though he's never directed a live-action film, Brad Bird is the top choice to direct Tom Cruise in Mission: Impossible 4. That's an inspired choice. Bird's animated works have shown off his flair for combining crazy action with touching characters. The Iron Giant and The Incredibles are instant classics and Ratatouille made me so afraid of germs on my food that I've lived a Howard Hughes existence ever since seeing it. Ever since seeing it. Ever since seeing it. *pees into milk bottle*Bird has been trying for quite some time to get disaster drama 1906 in front of cameras, but that has been bogged down with budgetary issues. Hopefully, he'll get M:I 4 and that will lead to bigger and better projects. I say give this guy the gig. There have been so many subpar action thrillers released in the last decade, it's time for a few more great ones. Our eyeballs deserve at least that much. (Heat Vision)

Bill Murray Tends Bar in Austin

Wednesday, March 24 by

Bill Murray attended the SXSW this past weekend and decided to stop by the 'ol watering hole Shangri-La. That of course wasn't enough for Murray, though, who took it upon himself to step behind the bar and attend to its patrons. Whether they liked it or not, they were served tequila shots, and I'm guessing more than a few now remember what it's like to forget EVERYTHING. Footage of Murray after the dude's intro.

‘Despicable Me’ Trailer Counts as Annoying

Wednesday, March 24 by

The Despicable Me trailer gives me the frownies. If I had kids who made me play this repeatedly for them while they jump up and down and giggle, "Again, Daddy, again!", they'd be orphaned like the precocious tots in the story. But that's why I only bed menopausal women. Have fun parents!! At least now we see a semblance of the plot as Steve Carell's Gru and his minions strive to steal the moon, bash an adorable children's book about kittens drinking milk, and enact revenge on a smug carnie. It's about time someone knocked those gypsies down a few pegs. They think they're so great with their intimate Tilt-a-Whirl knowledge and methamphetamine addictions. Check out the Despicable Me trailer after the jump.

‘Iron Man 2′ Poster Captures All the Drama of a Man Blowing Up a Speedway With Electric Whips

Wednesday, March 24 by

The international poster for Iron Man 2 has arrived online and shows a bad-ass Mickey Rourke walking away from an explosion while Scarlett Johannson reminds us that her ass is in the movie. Look at Rourke just trying to walk away. Whenever there's arson in Hollywood he's the immediate suspect. Don't try to pin this one on Robert, Mickey. He's put those days behind him.

Should Will Smith Choose ‘Men in Black 3′, ‘The City That Sailed’, or Something Not Stupid?

Wednesday, March 24 by

Give it to him good, Hollywood.Will Smith is in quite the pickle. The megastar with a penchant for box office destruction has to choose between two projects that no one cares about. The first is Men in Black 3, a film that when it would finally be released would be about as much in demand as a banged up prostitute. The second is a fantasy-adventure entitled The City That Sailed which Variety describes as such:City that Sailed revolves around a New York street magician who is unhappily separated from his young daughter. The girl, who moves to London, finds magic candles that make her wishes comes true, with unintended consequences: The island of Manhattan separates from the continent and floats toward England, bringing her dad ever closer.So Smith kinda just has to wait around the entire film until Manhattan docks with London while his little b*tch daughter lights candles? This project is going to need David Copperfield riding in barechested on a Bengal Tiger to get my interest peaked.Oh David, I remember those days. When I took pictures of you with other people's children.

‘Hot Tub Time Machine’ Actress Lyndsy Fonseca

Wednesday, March 24 by

For someone who's only 23, Lyndsy Fonseca has accomplished a ton. She started out as a model, moved to soap operas, booked roles on primetime TV, and now is starring in Hot Tub Time Machine and Kick-Ass. If she wasn't so hot I might be irked that she spells her name with two "Ys." You're SOOOO clever, Lyndsy's parents.  A word from Lyndsy: "There is no such thing as bad publicity." Oh yeah? I bet being seen on my arm wouldn't do you any favors. Unless people assume you're doing charity work. Ouch, I just hurt my own feelings… There's nothing bad about the pics after the jump.

Jamie Foxx Scripting ‘Laverne & Shirley’ Movie For Whatever Reason

Wednesday, March 24 by

Gary Marshall's Valentine's Day featured some bizarre on-screen unions, and now is causing one off-screen as well. I don't know how to better describe this news item than with a shrill "Say WHAAAAAAATTTTTTT???!!!!!" Jamie Foxx is scripting a modernized adaptation of "Laverne & Shirley" as a vehicle for sisters-from-another-mister Jennifer Garner and Jessica Biel. I wouldn't mind seeing that sexy pair schlemiel one another's schlimazels if you know what I'm sayin' (note: I don't know what I'm sayin').Marshall tells TV Guide:“Jamie and I are trying to do it. He’s writing it. It’s a whole different modern day take on how they came up on the streets during difficult times. Laverne would be this very tough girl with a big ‘L’ tattooed on her arm. Jennifer Garner would play Laverne and Jessica Biel would play Shirley.”This is just great. I've been working on the gangsta version of "227" for quite some time and now everyone will think I'm ripping off Jamie Foxx's stupid urban "Laverne & Shirley." Now the world will never see Macy Gray cut a bitch while dressed as Jackée.

13 Terminally Typecast Actresses

Wednesday, March 24 by

On our last go-round on this subject,  I dealt with those unfortunate few male actors whose default setting was the most often seen in their films. If you happen to be a female in Hollywood, things don't look much better, and in many cases they probably look worse, because in the movie business, you're a hooker, a bitch, or a woman who needs a man to solve all her problems, and there's not much room for in between. So much so that even good actresses, ones who have proven themselves to have range and abilities beyond their usual fare, find themselves going back to the same old thing, time and again, whether it be romantic comedy (more than half the actresses on this list) or drama/action (the other half). So in a tribute to these brave women who have talent but choose not to use it for the sake of routine and easy satisfaction, Screen Junkies presents…. 13 Terminally Typecast Actresses

Olivia Munn Cut From Then Recast in ‘Iron Man 2′

Wednesday, March 24 by

Iron Man 2 director Jon Favreau was forced to leave Olivia Munn's cameo on the cutting room floor when the tone of the sequel shifted to become darker. Perhaps fearing the wrath of a million deflated nerdboners, he lovingly reinserted Munn into the film in a new mystery role. She tells Complex:You're in two gigantic movies this year. Let's talk about Iron Man 2 first because it's f*cking Iron Man 2. Olivia Munn: Actually, they just gave me another role in the film. I had to reshoot all of my scenes. Wait, didn't they start filming like last year or something? Olivia Munn: Yeah, but as they started to edit they realized it was becoming darker than what they'd expected and what my scenes had allowed for. My parts were lighthearted and comedic. Yikes. Olivia Munn: Jon Favreau called and was like, "I've got good news and bad news: This is what's happening in editing but we all really like you." Marvel and Jon had to add another character from the Marvel universe to keep me included. I need details! Tell us anything about the old or new role. Olivia Munn: I can't talk specifics because it's Iron Man 2! But when they call, you say, "OK, I'm there. What do you need?" You don't say, "Who is this Marvel? Did you call my agent? Is FIJI Water on set?" Everyone knows who the stars are in this movie. I'm not one of them and I understand the editing process. Some things don't work out. What if you'd stayed on the cutting room floor? Olivia Munn: I would've started crying.Sexy crying, of course. Which character from the Marvel universe will Munn portray? There have been rumors swirling that she would play Scarlet Witch or Iron Maiden for awhile now. More importantly, will it involve spandex or a leather bodysuit while sauntering in slow-motion to cock-rock? Knowing Favreau, yes.
