James Cameron Allegedly Directing Black Eyed Peas Concert Film

Friday, July 2 by

Will.i.am is saying things. Namely, that James Cameron is writing and directing a 3D concert film for his group The Black Eyed Peas. Well, this is obviously the truth. Cameron is well known for his laidback attitude and enjoyment of jokes and good times all around, so OF COURSE he'd force Fergie's humps upon us in three dimensions.Sure, it sounds like a project far more suited for McG but keep in mind James Cameron is on the rebound. He was recently shot down by BP, only to have them run off with Kevin Costner. Rejection does funny things to a man. Like, make them flush away all credibility by teaming up with the Nickelback of hip-hop. Or sleep with a homeless woman during a bender. What's most important is that nobody is being judged here.

Michael Bay Using the Sh*t Out of 3D Cameras for ‘Transformers 3′

Friday, July 2 by

Michael Bay doesn't eff with that post-conversion 3D bullsh*t. He's bringing 3D cameras to the set of Transformers 3, and he's bringing them hard. Looks like the director who spits on the idea of static shots has dumped his old school filmmaking ways by making the switch from film to video. Vince Pace, Innovator of FUSION 3D and 2D digital camera systems developed with James Cameron, laid down the skinny for MarketSaw:“Trying to lay low and do what I do best. We took delivery of the first Alexa cameras for Hugo and have 23 more on the way. Transformers has also signed on to shoot 3D throughout the film. I am working on a big Disney film but can’t mention the name and are lining up five more films. Just wrapped on additional photography for Resident Evil and Tron. Currently in Hawaii and flying out to London for Hugo.”It must be nice to be smart enough to invent new technology. I reckon someone could make quite the hefty profit owning an idea and all. Vince Pace has his digital camera systems he rents to Michael Bay and Martin Scorsese, and I have my automatic super absorbant juicer rag I rent to my slow neighbor. Splitting hairs really. (/Film)

‘Twilight Eclipse’ Actress Bryce Dallas Howard

Friday, July 2 by

Bryce Dallas Howard sure turned out hot considering she's got Richie Cunningham genes plugging up her human genome. She made M. Night Shymalan's The Village easier to bear, and Lady in the Water, well, even if her mermaid character was topless she couldn't have saved that movie.  A word from Bryce: "Right now as an artist, what I want to do is be a part of works that are unignorable. I couldn't be less interested in how people receive it, honestly. As long as it's unignorable."If you want to be a part of something that's unignorable go clean up oil on the Gulf Coast, not star in a movie about vampires with stripper diamond dust on their skin.

‘Spider-man’ Casting Announcement

Friday, July 2 by

Yesterday, fairly unknown British actor Andrew Garfield was awarded the coveted role of Peter Parker in the Spider-Man reboot. You can "Extra! Extra! Read all about it!" right here. Sony made the official announcement at a press event in Cancun, Mexico for international journalists attending a media tour promoting upcoming films from Sony Pictures Entertainment. Personally, I feel Garfield is more suited to play Ichabod Crane or bass in Coldplay than Spider-man, but what do I know. I don't run a studio and sleep on 2,000 thread count sheets. Yet…Check out pics and video from the event below.

Dumb Things Kristen Stewart Says: Afraid Twihards Will Assassinate Her

Friday, July 2 by

GUN!!!!!!The best thing about the Twilight buzz machine is when Kristen Stewart sits down for an unsupervised interview, while her publicist fills her purse in the hospitality suite. The girl puts her foot in her mouth at the craziest of angles so consistently that I've felt we need a new section called Dumb Things Kristen Stewart Says. Actually, she goes off the PR rails so often we could dedicate our entire site to it. And then a book deal. And then a sitcom. I'm digressing. The latest diarrhea to dribble out of Kristen's opinion-hole paints her adoring fans as crazed lunatics (something we've been in the business of doing for awhile now). From Hello! magazine:"I don't feel very comfortable on the red carpet. Sometimes I get really excited for what I'm going to and then try to take good pictures and go inside… I literally have to keep myself from crying sometimes. I look out there at a thousand people and I realize they could rush me and assassinate me. No security could protect me. Ostensibly they're fans, but I think about them turning on me."Relax, Kristen. If you ever feel unsafe in a crowd of Twihards, just mumble for help. If that fails, run in the opposite direction. It's likely they'll lose their breath before making it to that Jamba Juice over there by that green car. (via CinemaBlend)

Co-starring Daniel Craig, Olivia Wilde, Harrison Ford and Sam Rockwell, the film is still in its early stages, and will not be released until July of 2011.Spencer is best known for playing the mistress of Don Draper on the hit AMC show, "Mad Men."

‘Get Low’ Has Another Trailer, and Boy Is It Smug

Friday, July 2 by

Do you like Bill Murray? Do you like Robert Duvall? Do you like smug "indie dramedies?" Then you're going to love, Get Low, the story of a mysterious old man who wants to have his funeral whille…get this…HE'S STILL ALVIE! How disgustingly clever. Don't get me wrong, with a cast like that, I'm sure it's a great film. But after watching the trailer, I got the urge to drive over to Steven Soderbergh's house and punch him in the face even though he's not involved with the film. I mean, just look at the dialogue. Radio Interviewer: "How are you today, sir?" Robert Duvall's Character: "I am." Oh, shut the f**k up and stop being so playfully mysterious, you smug bastard! And tell Bill Murray's character to stop being so god damn witty! Watch the Get Low trailer after the jump.

I Want to Friend You Like an Animal: Trent Reznor Scores ‘Social Network’

Friday, July 2 by

Trent just loves FarmVille.Trent Reznor and David Fincher are now friends.At least we assume they are, now that we know the Nine Inch Nails' front man has scored the soundtrack to Fincher's upcoming Facebook docudrama, The Social Network. Hell, at this point, we wouldn't be suprised if they were poking.Reznor, whose music was also featured in the soundtrack for Fincher's Se7en, is a big fan of the director. And like many of his fans, he was confused as to why Fincher would choose to make a film about Facebook. However, after being involved with the project, he seems happy with the end result."I've always loved David's work but quite honestly I wondered what would draw him to tell that story," said Reznor before quickly explaining, "It's really f*cking good!"Reznor's involvement in the film is somewhat ironic, given the fact that he made headlines in 2009 (online headlines, not the real kind) for publicly pledging to tune out from online social networks."I will be tuning out of the social networking sites because at the end of the day it’s now doing more harm than good in the bigger picture and the experiment seems to have yielded a result. Idiots rule." (Empire Online)

New ‘Spider-Man’ Officially Andrew Garfield For Real Seriously This Time

Thursday, July 1 by

Andew Garfield has been officially for real seriously chosen as the new Spider-man/Peter Parker in the reboot to be directed by Mark Webb. We've reported all kinds of rumors and hearsay, but the studio made the official announcement today at a press event in Cancun, Mexico for international journalists attending a media tour promoting upcoming films from Sony Pictures Entertainment.On selecting Garfield, director Marc Webb said, “Though his name may be new to many, those who know this young actor’s work understand his extraordinary talents. He has a rare combination of intelligence, wit, and humanity. Mark my words, you will love Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker.”Words marked, Mark Webb. Garfield is starring in the upcoming David Fincher film The Social Network and Mark Romanek's next, Never Let Me Go opposite Keira Knightley and Carey Mulligan. He seems to be partial to directors who made a name for themselves in the music video and commercial world before transitioning into features.Okay, so we can all stop worrying about the new Spider-man now. It's Andrew Garfield. They start shooting in December. And don't you DARE start asking about Mary Jane yet. I will lose my sh*t.

Man Smacks Montage

Thursday, July 1 by

A montage of male characters from movies and TV smacking each other on the back to communicate affection. I'll always remember the episode of "Dr. Katz" where Lew Schneider says, "Men hug, but they pat too — "I'm hugging you, but I'm hitting you!" So true. So true.

‘Inception’ Confuses the Hell Out Of Leonardo DiCaprio Too

Thursday, July 1 by

DiCaprio pondering Inception's plot points.Just this morning I was halfway through explaining Inception's plot to someone when it occurred to me that I had no idea what I was talking about. So, naturally I just kind of trailed off and quickly escaped into the flatbed of a passing truck. Looks like I'm not the only one confused:For the Inception cast, the intricate screenplay Mr. Nolan wrote was tantalizing but occasionally perplexing. “It was a very well written, comprehensive script,” Mr. DiCaprio said, “but you really had to have Chris in person, to try to articulate some of the things that have been swirling around his head for the last eight years.”That's disheartening considering it's unlikely Nolan will provide a Q&A after each screening. He could at least print his number on each ticket stub so we could call him at random hours to request some kind of closure. According to Peter Travers, we'll love it as long as we're not stupid. So yeah, it's pretty much the anti-Transformers. (NY Times via Vulture)

Big Screen Adaptation of Stephen King’s ‘It’ Closer to Freaking You the F*ck Out

Thursday, July 1 by

This is why I don't do laundry anymore. Back in 2009, Warner Bros. hired screenwriter Dave Kajganich to tackle a big screen adaptation of Stephen King's novel It. I've never read the 1,104 page book because come on, it's over 1,000 pages, but the 1990 mini-series scared the living crap out of me when I was younger. It ruined so many things for me, including chinese food, sewers, old ladies, Jonathan Brandis, and sewers. In fact, Googling images of Pennywise the Clown just now triggered my post traumatic stress disorder and my bladder.Dave Kajganich spoke recently to the Stephen King fansite Lilja's Library, and told them how he's working on damaging our psyches with a killer clown again:I told the studio from the beginning that I felt I needed to be able to write for an R rating, since I wanted to be as candid as the novel about the terrible things the characters go through as kids. They agreed and off I went. … I think the biggest difference [between the big screen adaptation and the miniseries] is that we’re working with about two-thirds the onscreen time they had for the miniseries. That sounds dire, I know, but it doesn’t necessarily mean two-thirds the amount of story. I’m finding as many ways as I can to make certain scenes redundant by deepening and doubling others.I can't image how he'll take over 1,000 pages of source material and cram it into a two-hour film. Obviously a lot will be cut, but will all the crucial elements hold together is the question. Also, Tim Curry delivers such a fantastic performance in the original mini-series it's going to be hard finding someone who can top it. But the bigger question here is, what's up with Richard Thomas's mole these days?Yep, still enormous.

Nikki Reed and Deborah Ann Woll Locked And Loaded For ‘Catch .44′

Thursday, July 1 by

Hot teen vampire worlds are about to collide. Twilight's Nikki Reed will be joined by "True Blood's" blood-teary eyed Deborah Ann Woll in Aaron Harvey's Catch .44. The fanged duo will join Malin Akerman to form a trio of gorgeous assassins who's next mission may be their last when they're pitted between Bruce Willis's crime boss and Forest Whitaker's psychotic hitman. Something tells me he's not a sharp-shooter. Just sayin'.File photo: F. WhitakerHonestly though, why are hot girls always playing assassins in movies? In my experience the prettier the girl, the more likely they are to find some desperate nerd to garrote their marks. Or help them move. It depends on whether or not you were raised in Detroit.
