Batman Live Is Coming to a Town Near You

Monday, April 26 by

"Seriously, any spare change you have. Just trying to get a bite to eat."Warner Bros. and DC Comics are developing a traveling show for the kids tentatively titled, "Batman Live." Alan Burnett, who is a veteran of "Batman: The Animated Series," will write the script which will include numerous villians, though no plot specifics have been unveiled beyond the usual "millionaire beats up the mentally-ill" framework. It's said the show may premiere in 2011 or wait to capitalize on the buzz of Christopher Nolan's third Batman film in 2012.Personally, I'm happy to see Batman "pulling a Conan" and taking his show on the road. I never approved of the way Six Flags Great Adventure replaced him with the Penguin to host The Batman Stunt Show. I'm with Batman. (THR)

Conan & Jim Carrey Sing “Superman”

Last night thousands of Coco fans gathered at the Gibson Amphitheater in Universal City, CA to witness the red-headed former "Tonight Show" host do whatever he wanted for a couple…

‘Final Destination 5′ Goes Through the Motions of Hiring a Writer

Monday, April 26 by

Last summer's The Final Destination was intended to be the last film in the franchise until someone realized they forgot to include laser-eye surgery. And thus, The Final Destination 5 in 3D will breeze into theaters next year, knock over some paint thinner and cause a huge fire in the process.Eric Heisserer (Elm Street remake, The Thing prequel) has been hired to write the script. Plot specifics are not known at this time but it is said that New Line is looking to break out of the repetition of the previous entries. I'll keep you posted when the entirely new, totally retarded plot contrivances are announced. (THR)

Is ‘District 10′ Filming This Fall?

Sunday, April 25 by

Break open a celebratory tin of cat food! A source at Weta has told MarketSaw that a sequel to District 9 is in pre-production and will go before cameras this October. Peter Jackson will once again produce with Neill Blomkamp back in the director's chair. There's no word yet about the plot or the title of the sequel. Though my well-placed sources (who wish to remain anonymous) tell me they may involve an Electric Boogaloo.

The Last ‘The Last Airbender’ Trailer

Saturday, April 24 by

Look, I'm in a box. The fourth and final trailer for M. Night Shyamalan's The Last Airbender has rained down all over our faces and minds and Hush Puppies. It's quite a bit more impressive than previous trailers and that mostly has to do with the addition of dragons. Like every other movie being released in the near future, The Last Airbender is being converted to 3D so that you can enjoy all the earth, wind, and fire right up in your face. I hope they play "September" by those guys on the soundtrack. That song is always fun to stumble around to when you're drunk at a wedding. Check out the trailer after the jump. The Last Airbender blows into theaters July 2.

Win Jacques d’Azure’s Place at Cannes

Friday, April 23 by

A few weeks ago we reported to you that Jacques d'Azur, the King of Cannes, went missing. Mr. d'Azur is now presumed dead, or lost forever on an island inhabited entirely by beautiful women, and the search is on to find his heir. This lucky person will fill in for Jacques at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival — an exclusive VIP trip of a lifetime worth of $10,000. You'll get the very same treatment that Jacques would have. That includes the premieres, the parties, the limos, the helicopter pads, and hobnobbing with A-List celebrities. This swanky trip is sponsored by Stella Artois 4%, so head on over to their site for complete details and to enter. You could be on a jet to the French Riviera before you know it. It's good to be the king. HURRY! CONTEST ENDS SUNDAY!

Paramount Pays Sacha Baron Cohen With Goats

Friday, April 23 by

Paramount has won the rights to Sacha Baron Cohen's next comedy film after sending goats to the actor and his reps. That's right. Goats. They also gave him $20 million against 20% of the first-dollar gross. Which means he could stand to earn.. umm…. uh…. carry the one…consult with Clippy…. uh…. a lot of money. So that helped to seal the deal too.The film will star Cohen in a dual role, playing two characters we've yet to see. One is a goat herder and the other a deposed dictator who gets stuck in America. But back to the goats. Deadline reports, "visitors to WME were greeted by a goat wandering across the 3rd floor atrium — that is, until Ari Emanuel had the goat removed after it took a dump in the hallway."No fair. Brett Ratner dumps in that hallway all the time and he's still allowed to make deals.

Requisite ‘Twilight: Eclipse’ Trailer Post

Friday, April 23 by

Peek-a-boo. Today Oprah continued her mission to infuriate the male gender by debuting the new trailer for Twilight: Eclipse. I don't believe the act was intentionally malicious, but when an "Oprah" audience squeels a lumberjack loses his testicles. I've watched the trailer and if I'm not mistaken it's still about vampires and cartoon werewolves. Everyone is sad most of the time, donning pomadours, and fighting each other for ownership of the woods or something. The film does feature a group of vampires emerging from a body of water, which I always thought was a zombie strategy of attack. Better get on your game, Walking Dead. The vampires are stealin' your bitches AND your tricks. Swoon over the trailer after the jump.  Twilight: Eclipse gets asses in the seats June 30.

‘Eastbound and Down’ Heads Down Mexico Way

Friday, April 23 by

The wait is almost over. The second season of "Eastbound and Down" will officially send K F*CKING P south of the border to Mexico, where the drugs are more dangerous and nobody works past noon. Michael Pena and Ana de la Reguera join the cast while most of season one's cast sit this one out. Everyone except for Kenny's stalker Stevie Janowski, thankfully. In Season 2, hiding from his problems, Kenny finds himself in Mexico where he joins a local baseball team. Crash co-star Pena will play Kenny’s friend and owner of the baseball team he joins. De la Reguera will play Kenny’s love interest in Mexico. Because of the new setting, most of the cast members from Season 1 of the show will have little or no presence next season with the exception of Steve Little whose character Stevie Janowski will track Danny down in Mexico. Casting is underway for the role of Kenny's father.Filming begins in May, but that's just not soon enough for me. I'll scrape a chalk dash for everyday that passes without a new episode on the side of my television. Like they do in the fancier prisons. (Deadline)

‘Miami Medical’ Actress Elisabeth Harnois

Friday, April 23 by

Elisabeth Harnois is another one of those child actors who grew up to be hot. She starred in "Point Pleasant," a short-lived 2005 series on FOX, and also landed a role in Pretty Persuasion alongside Evan Rachel Wood.A word from Elisabeth: "I wish I understood the UK audience."I can't understand them either with all their "whilsts" and "spots of tea."More examples of Elisabeth's maturity after the jump.

Breck Eisner to Direct ‘Escape from New York’

Friday, April 23 by

Those who have always wished they could see Snake Plissken run around with the burnt-out facades of ruined Starbucks locations behind him have cause to celebrate. It's been announced that Breck Eisner is in talks to pull the let's-get-out-of-this-joint action-thriller Escape from New York, out of development hell.Breck Eisner, who directed Overtures' remake of "The Crazies," is in negotiations to helm the remake of "Escape From New York" for New Line.The remake has been a top priority for the company, which picked up the rights in March 2007, with Gerard Butler attached to star and Ken Nolan writing the script. The project then veered into development hell, losing Butler but amassing a penal colony of writers, among them Jonathan Mostow and Allan Loeb, and collecting then losing director Len Wiseman.Eisner's boarding should bring "Escape" back on track as New Line, sticking with the Loeb draft, tries to mix an origin story for anti-hero Snake Plissken and merge it with the story of the 1981 original. No word yet on when the Rock will resign himself to star with a brooding sigh. "Yeah, sure. Pass me that eye-patch."  But expect that news soon. (THR)

Iron Man Sails On The Titanic

Friday, April 23 by

First Iron Man punched Hugh Grant in the face, then danced dirty with Patrick Swayze, and now he's getting all artsy fartsy with Leonardo DiCaprio. The suits over at Paramount must be ecstatic that these mashups are making the rounds. Not that the release of Iron Man 2 needs much more hype, but it's an exec's wet dream to get a superhero franchise and James Cameron together by any means possible.

8 Bands Worthy of a 3D Concert Film

Friday, April 23 by

With the recent Hollywood push to produce and convert everything they possibly can into 3D, you gotta wonder if the major congloms are gonna work with their music departments to throw out a few more 3D gigs. To date, there have only been three such concert shows in theaters, with Hannah Montana being the only big success. Country singer Kenny Chesney releases his show to the masses this Friday, so we'll see how a cowboy fares. Fact is, “The Studio Man” has apparently forgotten that their largest and most loyal audience members are young adult males. Why can’t we score a show or two from a band that actually rocks hard (sorry U2 fans, they just don’t)? The following are eight bands/performers that, if given their own 3D theatrical film, would inspire some airborne devil-horns and bring in bank at the box office. Muse
