Star Michael Jai White Talks Weird ‘Mortal Kombat’ Video Thing

Friday, June 11 by

Just the other day, that weird Mortal Kombat thing arrived online. It sparked immediate debate whether it was for the upcoming video game or the film. We know now that the gritty video was shot by director Kevin Tanchareon as a pitch to get himself hired for the upcoming job. Michael Jai White was one of many actors working for free to appear as Jax. He tells Asylum that the vibe on set was "one of camaraderie." He's got a lot of ideas about what he can bring to the role of Jax:"Our natural take on it is to make it gritty and dark. Jax is still a hell of a fighter. He's still a super-badass, but he's just restrained by the letter of the law. We played with some ideas of building that up between him and Scorpion. There would be some great fights with Jax. There's so much I haven't had the chance to do. I've probably shown one-eighth of my martial arts ability on screen. With Jax having his metal arms, I'd use a lot of Wing Chun because it relies heavily on the arms."I really don't feel we need a "serious" take on Mortal Kombat. While Dark Knight was a meditation on the weight vengeance bears on the soul, Mortal Kombat: Rebirth is likely to be a meditation on punching someone's skull through their rectum.

Kevin Costner Solves The BP Oil Spill

Friday, June 11 by

With his greatest foe vanquished, Kevin Costner is now stepping up to the plate to save the Earth's oceans. Though they refused aid from James Cameron, BP has reportedly purchased a technology from the Waterworld star that will help clean up the tremendous spill in the Gulf.Since 1993, Costner has spent $20 million on the patent and development of a machine that seperates oil from water via a centrifuge. BP purchased 32 of the machines that will be able to clean 6 million gallons of water a day. Costner had a tough time selling the invention at first, drawing no interest from the Coast Guard or private companies. It wasn't until he helped rehabilitate the hot tub used in the taping of "Jersey Shore" that Congress took notice. (Houston Chronicle via Film Drunk)

A former childhood actor from "The Bill Engvall Show," she makes her huge leap from the small screen to the big one this Friday with indie fest favorite Winter's Bone.

Review: ‘The Karate Kid’

Friday, June 11 by

The Karate Kid PG, 140min., 2010 Cast: Jaden Smith, Taraji P. Henson, Rongguang Yu, and Jackie Chan Directed by Harald Zwart Screenplay by Christopher Murphy based upon the 1980s movie of the same name.   The Karate Kid is as epic as a kid's movie can come, yet falls into the same pitfalls of most prequels/sequels/remakes.   As the overlong prologue begins, we meet 12-year-old Dre Parker of Detroit (Jaden Smith, a rail thin swagger type like his parents, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith) who with his Mom (the great and underused actress Taraji P. Henson) move to Beijing, China. Once they arrive, Dre makes new enemies with a bullying martial arts gang, gets beaten to a pulp on the school's  playground, meets his first girlfriend, and learns the art of Kung-Fu by way of the local hermit Mr. Han (Jackie Chan in surprisingly great dramatic role).More after the jump…

‘Twilight: Breaking Dawn’ To Be Broken Into Two Films

Friday, June 11 by

In news that doesn't really come as a surprise, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn will be pressed against the kitchen counter and split into two parts like those popsicles that are double-popsicles (you know the ones). This move has been speculated for some time but was officially announced by Summit today, now that the contract negotiations have finalized.Bill Condon will direct the final chapters of the series back-to-back with the first seeing release in November 2011 and the second installment premiering some time in 2012. This decision is obviously cash-fueled and so typical of Hollywood. It shows a blatant disrespect to Edward and Bella and Werewolf Guy and red-haired vampire. Shameful. **logs on to eTrade and buys shares in Summit**CHECK OUT SUMMIT'S PRESS RELEASE AFTER THE JUMP…

Michael Bay Talks ‘Transformers 3′ Villian and Trilogy’s End

Friday, June 11 by

Michael Bay has followed in the footsteps of Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox, he's crapping on Michael Bay. In an interview with USA Today, Bay admits that Transformers 2 wasn't that great of a film. He's even willing to take some of the blame… sort of."I'll take some of the criticism," says Bay, standing at a set built to resemble a dilapidated nuclear reactor. "It was very hard to put (the sequel) together that quickly after the writers' strike (of 2007-08)."Are you sure this was on set? I hear Michael Bay has a bed shaped like a dilapidated nuclear reactor."One thing we're getting rid of is what I call the dorky comedy," Bay adds. So the twins, the two bumbling, slang-spewing robots? "They're basically gone,"Please bookmark this article for when something far worse than the Twins pratfalls its way throughout the movie. I'm hoping to build a court case modeled after The People Vs. Revenge of the Sith. At least we may have a more fascinating villian (like that matters in these films). Bay admits that the Fallen was kind of a "sh*t character," and reveals the next film will feature Shockwave as the blurry, jumble of robot that will scream his own name for zero discernible reason. He also notes:"As a trilogy, it really ends," he says. "It could be rebooted again, but I think it has a really killer ending."Sure. We've all heard that before.

Jennifer Garner and Nick Nolte In Talks To Join ‘Arthur’ Remake

Friday, June 11 by

Nick Nolte may take time away from his passion (rooting around through pizzeria garbage cans) to fulfill his other passion (being an actor in Hollywood movies). It's reported that both Nolte and Jennifer Garner are in negotiations to appear in the Arthur remake.Russell Brand will star as the titular drunk with Helen Mirren as his nanny and Greta Gerwig as the love interest who causes him to choose between marrying for love or money. Just like on those reality shows. If talks are successful, Garner will play the heiress that Brand is forced to marry and Nolte will play her religious father. Should negotiations fall flat, hopefully Nolte will stick around as a consultant to Brand. If you're playing a character who wakes up after a bender in the bucket of an excavator, it'd be handy to have someone on set with that kind of experience. (THR)

Angelina Jolie Wanted for ‘Cleopatra’ Biopic

Friday, June 11 by

Oscar winning producer Scott Rudin has set his sights on Angelina Jolie for an upcoming adaptation of Cleopatra: A Life. Like the book by Stacy Schiff, the film promises to be a detailed look at one of antiquity's most famous women.If the project comes together, it will not be Jolie's first foray into the ancient world. In 2004, she starred as the mother of Alexander the Great in Oliver Stone's critical and box-office flop, Alexander. Seeing as how that outing went over like a led zeppelin, why not give Angelina another shot? While we're at it, get Kevin Coster on the phone. I've got a special effects-laden post-apocalyptic love story I'd like him to direct. I hope he can keep it under budget. (First Showing)

Jonathan Liebesman May Helm ‘Clash of the Titans 2: The Search for Spanakopita’

Friday, June 11 by

Warner Bros is eying director Jonathan Liebesman (Darkness Falls, Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning) to helm the second installment of their recently rebooted Clash of the Titans franchise. The film will most likely be shot in 3D, and is tentatively scheduled to begin production in early in 2011.I'm not exactly sure why Warner Bros. is putting money behind a sequel. By almost any standard, the first film was awful. But on a side note, the original did make $487 million worldwide. I'm beginning to think the only justification for revisiting the project is that it might make money, and frankly, I'm a little dispointed in Hollywood right now. Shame on you guys for chasing the almighty dollar instead of trying to make art. (First Showing)

We Lied: ‘Voltron’ Isn’t Dead

Friday, June 11 by

On Wednesday, we reported that plans for a Voltron movie had fallen through.  But according to producers Richard Suckle and Ted Koplar, we're a bunch of no-good liars. SUCKLE: You never can tell, but I think that if we're lucky going into 2011, and in a perfect world, if we could have a "Voltron" movie sometime in the summer of 2013, that would be what I would consider a very likely timeline. I know at first glance it looks like we screwed up, but let's take a step back and consider the source: Latino Review. It's a fine publication, but I'm not going to consider this news as "solid" until I read it in Afro-Caribbean Weekly or Slavic Quarterly, the gold standards in ethnocentric Voltron news outlets.

‘Entertainment Tonight’ Visits The Set of ‘Thor’

Thursday, June 10 by

"Entertainment Tonight" visited the set of Marvel's Thor and got some facetime with Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman as they flirt up a storm. It's like seriously, dude. You and your c-blocking camera crew should get out of there and give those two some privacy. On second thought, leave the camera. As far as "ET" videos go, this one's kind of hard-hitting. It even shows some restraint (it takes them a full three minutes and nineteen seconds to discuss Chris Hemsworth's workout regimine). In addition; we get a glimpse of Sir Anthony Hopkins as Odin, and Hemsworth fesses up to his "Dancing With The Stars" roots. Really? He was on "Dancing With The Stars?" Suddenly this Kim Kardashian as Tomb Raider rumor doesn't sound so far-fetched.Check it out after the jump…
