Mexico Is Overrun In ‘Monsters’ Trailer #2

Tuesday, August 17 by

This morning, we have a second trailer for Gareth Edwards's Monsters. We didn't post the first trailer because, y'know, too much typing. Also, there wasn't much to be shown. But this time around, we have a sliiiightly more substantial look. And don't worry it doesn't include spoilers, so you should be in good shape if you want to walk into the theater without knowing too much. I'm all for preserving the mystery and watching through fresh eyes. It's rare that you get the opportunity, and Monsters is said to be an awesome giant monster movie with focus on character. Suck on that, Starship Troopers 2: Hero Of The Federation.

See the Softer (Fatter) Side Of Joaquin Phoenix In ‘I’m Still Here’ Trailer

Monday, August 16 by

We finally have a first look at I'm Still Here, the "documentary" that chronicles Joaquin Phoenix's slow transformation into Zach Galifianakis. Directed by Casey Affleck, we're given a front row seat to Phoenix's imaginary breakdown. Absolutely riveting (in an imaginary way).
The trailer has a pretty cool voice-over. Is that Edward James Olmos? I think it is. If so, somebody get that guy a job selling Ford trucks immediately.
Check it out after the jump…

‘Terriers’ Trailer Is Up In Everybody’s Business

Monday, August 16 by

"Here we'll help you with that gunshot wound." 
Here we have a trailer for FX's new comedy-drama-action series "Terriers." The latest from "The Shield" creator Shawn Ryan, and stars Ghost Rider's BFF Donal Logue and Rene from "True Blood" as two unlicensed private investigators. In other words, a couple of real busy bodies. I was surprised to find out this isn't a remake of a British show. Don't they have a "Terriers." I thought they did. They totally should, right?
Check out the trailer for Hawaii 4-0 "Terriers" after the jump…

Oliver Platt Will Play a Human in ‘X-Men: First Class’

Monday, August 16 by

The X-Men: First Class casting news keeps on comin' today. Rose Byrne just joined the cast as Moira MacTaggert, and now Oliver Platt is set to play a non-mutant character mysteriously named The Man in Black. Hopefully his skill isn't blending into the background. Platt isn't exactly Crispin Glover thin.
The film, which begins shooting in London next month, has an impressive group of stars attached, including James McAvoy as Xavier, Michael Fassbender as Magneto, Alice Eve as Emma Frost, Nicholas Hoult as Beast, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, Caleb Landry Jones as Banshee, Lucas Till as Havoc, and Edi Gathegi as Darwin. And let us not forget Kevin Bacon, who will be terrorizing them all with his fancy footwork and/or something else. (Deadline)

‘True Blood’ Recap: Everything Is Broken S3E9

Monday, August 16 by

Previously on "True Blood," Sookie and Bill broke up. Crystal left her (possibly werewolf or shifter) meth dad and fiancé (two different people) for Jason. Sam took in his brother and kicked their mom and dad to the curb. Tara was having problems handling her recent Franklin trauma. Lafayette and Jesus got back together. The King tried to take Sookie forcibly (who was defended by Bill and Jess). Eric killed Talbot as retribution for The King killing his dad a thousand or so years ago. Sookie and Bill got back together. And now onto this week's episode…

Rooney Mara Lands Lisbeth Salander Role in Fincher’s ‘Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’

Monday, August 16 by

Hollywood's most prominent young actresses can quit their cat fighting. Rooney Mara has been granted the coveted role of Lisbeth Salander in David Fincher's The Girl with the Dragon tattoo adaptation. Her deal includes an option for two sequels based off the second and third book in the Millennium Trilogy, The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl who Kicked the Hornet's Nest.
Mara, younger sister of hottie Kate Mara, will run and hack computers alongside Daniel Craig, who's already been cast as the investigative journalist and part owner of the magazine Millenium. Both Robin Wright and Stellan Skarsgard are also in talks for roles. Our deepest condolences go out to Ellen Page, Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson, Carey Mulligan, Mia Wasikowska, Emily Browning, and every other starlet who really REALLY wanted to nab the role of the decade. We hope these words help you in your time of grief: Life's unfair and stuff. (Deadline)

‘The Expendables’ Actress Lauren Jones

Monday, August 16 by

Lauren Jones shows that having a double major college degree in Hollywood doesn't get you by on smarts alone. A former model and ring girl for the WWE, she brings her lovely lady humps to The Expendables as Mickey Rourke's girl, Cheyenne.
A word from Lauren:  “This business is not as glamorous as it looks! It's truly a lot of hard work and dedication. But it's worth it in the end.”  
Because you get to ride on the back of Mickey Rourke's motorcycle. Hellz yeah.

Rose Byrne and Jason Flemyng Join ‘X-Men: First Class’

Monday, August 16 by

 
The cast of Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: First Class grew a bit over the weekend. Rose Byrne has signed on to be adorable in the role of Moira MacTaggert, Professor X's hot piece of Scottish butt who later leaves him without explanation, and gives birth to a son who she needs to keep sedated due to his ability to warp reality. Mother of the year, people.
Also, joining the production is Jason Flemyng. He's a mainstay of Matthew Vaughn and Guy Ritchie films. In other words, he's British. He'll play the teleporting mutant Azazel, who is also Nightcrawler's dad. Looks like that mutant ability runs in the family. Though, blue skin does not. Looks like Mrs. Azazel's got some 'splaining to do!! (THR)

Fall TV Tips: The Spy/Conspiracy Shows

Monday, August 16 by

Settle in. It’s time for another installment of my fall TV show tips. This week I’m looking at the new spy/conspiracy-type shows that promise a heavy dose of gratuitous action.
“Alias” went off the air a few seasons ago and “24” is now gone. “Human Target” is back in October, but after that, most of the espionage/government agent entries are freshman series. A couple of them seem to be packing enough intrigue to keep auds hanging around, while another isn’t really blowing my skirt up.

‘The Expendables’ Dominates At The Box Office

Monday, August 16 by

Sylvester Stallone choked out Julia Roberts over the weekend, and his movie also beat hers at the box office. Stallone's salute to gritty 80's action, The Expendables, easily took the top spot with $35 million. Audiences weren't as eager to see Julia Roberts get fat and f*ck. Eat, Pray, Love took the second spot with just under $24 million. Looks like the call to action worked, fellas.
Then there was Scott Pilgrim… well, Scott Pilgrim just kinda showed up, slumped its shoulders while gazing at its shoes before mumbling something about the new Arcade Fire album. Despite great reviews, producers just couldn't get fans of coin-op references and lesbian haircuts into the theater to see this one. But in all fairness, it was really sunny out in McCarren Park on Saturday. (Reuters)
