The Tim Burton Movie-Making Formula

Saturday, March 6 by

Someone finally caught on to the fact that Tim Burton loves the adjective "creepy" like a fat kid loves cake. Even the room he holds his development meetings in is creepy. Burton's creative team seems to be over the whole "spiral staircase" motif, but the director marches on. Play that wild-eyed man off, Danny Elfman!

New Orleans Club Enforces Anti-’Jersey Shore’ Dress Code

Friday, March 5 by

New Orleans has been long considered the authority on good taste by the rest of the United States, so it should come as no surprise that the Big Easy is trying to stamp out Jersey Shore.The New Orleans club Republic has posted a sign outside its door that disapproves of the "L" in GTL:If it's on the Jersey Shore, it's not coming through the door. No Affliction. No Ed Hardy. No Christian Audigier. No Exceptions.Apparently they're pissed about the Bar Refaeli thing too. But don't worry, outfits like this are still welcomed 100% in New Orleans.(Fail Blog)

3D Mr. Burns Bust is Eeeexcellent

Friday, March 5 by

An artist named monomauve designed this impressive bust of The Simpsons nuclear power plant owner Mr. Burns. If you speak computer graphics talk, it was done with Zbrush and rendered in 3ds max. Now this is some art I can get behind. I wouldn't mind owning an entire museum of Simpsons busts displayed prominently on pedestals. Oh the conversations they'd have with each other in my mind…Check out more of monomauve's work here.

Paramount to Reanimate ‘Pet Sematary’

Friday, March 5 by

Here lies Warts.Paramount is eager to dig up the remains of the Pet Sematary franchise. Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura has picked up the cautionary tale about the dangers of Indian burial grounds with 1408's Matthew Greenberg taking over scripting duties from Mike Werb and Michael Colleary.The film, based on Stephen King's novel, tells the story of a family from the city who moves to ideallic Maine. They soon discover a cursed pet cemetary that resurrects household pets as demons. Things take a hellish turn when they bury their murdered toddler on the plot. Is it even legal to bury your dead on your own? Aren't there laws?? Please forward all research to me for reasons that are none of your concern. (THR)

‘Brooklyn’s Finest’ Actress Ellen Barkin

Friday, March 5 by

Ellen Barkin is one foxy older woman. The squinty-eyed blond is best known for rollin' around in the sheets with Pacino in Sea of Love, but some of you younger folks might recognize her from Ocean's Thirteen. Did someone just yell MILF? Pipe down. A word from Ellen: "What the hell was I thinking? Marry a rich guy? Was I crazy?"Completely insane. Put your arms in to this straight jacket and come with me. More MILF after the jump.

New Line Wants New Recruits for ‘Police Academy’ Reboot

Friday, March 5 by

We already know that Steve Guttenberg feels another Police Academy would be good for the world. The healing power of nut shots and superglue pranks should not be underestimated. But do we really need another sequel? Or a reboot for that matter?? New Line Cinema and Warner Bros think so.The studios announced that they will be returning to the series with an all-new relaunch of the series. Though no writer or director are attached at this time, producer Paul Maslansky wants to start with a new cast. This news will make sound effects maestro and series star Michael Winslow cry like a baby. And I don't mean that he will  imitate the sound a crying baby makes. The man has bills! (THR)

‘The Runaways’ Trailer

Friday, March 5 by

And that's how Cherie Currie died. A full trailer for The Runaways has been released, and don't worry, there's plenty of leather. After seeing the teaser, I wasn't very amped for this film, but the trailer I kinda likey. Kristen Stewart looks like she's just being her regular angsty self, but Dakota Fanning turns it up a notch or five. She must have been practicing her seductive looks in the mirror for weeks. It's hard to get those AND face painting down all before the movie goes in to production. Learning how to go down on Kristen Stewart is a whole different beast altogether. Check out the full trailer for The Runaways below.

‘Dexter’ Season Five Killer Details

Friday, March 5 by

The season four finale of Dexter knocked the wind out of us and made me want to punch John Lithgow (something I swore I'd never do). Though it also served to reinvigorate a slumping storyline. So we were more than eager to chat with executive producer Sara Colleton when we caught up with her on the red carpet at PaleyFest 2010. If you're not caught up on the series, stop reading now as there are SPOILERS AHEAD. Here's what she told us we can expect in the new season.Dexter's not really one to wear his heart on his sleeve. What can we expect as he learns how to grieve?He is going to have to deal with a lot of feelings that he's never felt before, so it'll be interesting. He's going to approach it all, we hope, in a way that is unique and feels authentic to the audience. You'll see him go through all of those things and it will be different. I don't want to telegraph exactly what we're going to do because we want to present what anyone would be going through in that situation in a very unique Dexter-like way.SEE WHAT ELSE COLLETON HAD TO SAY, INCLUDING NEWS ABOUT THE SEASON'S BIG BAD, AFTER THE JUMP…

‘Survival of the Dead’ Red Band Teaser Has Hot Dogs

Thursday, March 4 by

Zombies getting killed by hot dogs now? The walking dead are getting weak as sh*t. Next thing you know our pees-pees will do the trick, they'll be an outbreak of zombie murder-rape, and then legal types will start talking about "equal rights." It's never worked before and it certainly won't work after an apocalypse.On that note, the red band teaser for George Romero's Survival of the Dead hit the Internetz today. What are the zombies doing in this one, you ask? On an island off the coast of North America, local residents simultaneously fight a zombie epidemic while hoping for a cure to return their un-dead relatives back to their human state. Amazing! How do they keep breathing new life into this dead concept?! Hey, if you don't like my schtick my mom will reimburse you. Salivate at the sight of the red band trailer after the jump.

Blake Lively (and ‘Green Lantern’) in Penis-Swelling 3D

Thursday, March 4 by

fap fap fap fap fapWhat a week it's turning out to be for men attracted to holograms.  On Monday came news that Amber Heard would be popping out above moviegoers when Drive Angry hits the screen in 3D, and today we got the word that the Warner Brosefs will present Martin Campbell's Green Lantern stereoscopically. That means we'll all be one step closer to the highly-desired Blake Lively motorboat. The science is almost there!!Though filming has yet to begin, it's unknown whether or not the production will shoot with 3D-outfitted cameras or if that look will be added in post. What I do know is if this trend persists, masturbation in the future will be bad for your eyes for two reasons. (Box Office Mojo)

James Cameron: I Am a Fan of Jokes

Thursday, March 4 by

He's oozing sense of humor. James Cameron has weighed in on the decision to cancel a Sacha Baron Cohen Avatar skit from Sunday's Oscars in order to spare the director's feelings. He tells E!:"I don't know anything about that … I don't produce the Oscars. If they want to poke fun at 'Avatar' Sunday, that's okay by me." Show co-producer Bill Mechanic denies the allegations and comments:"It was a little too MTV for everyone."Oh right. This year's Oscars are about respect and gravitas and not fun party vibes. I forgot about that. I guess that means awards DJ Joel Madden won't be playing Diddy's "I'll Be Missing You" over the celebrity death montage. (Vulture) 

‘Brooklyn’s Finest’ Actress Shannon Kane

Thursday, March 4 by

Shannon Kane is best known for playing Natalia Fowler on the soap All My Children. If you don't watch daytime television because you're too busy contributing to society or looking for a job (touching yourself), then you're probably not aware of her. Look, ain't she pretty?!   A word from Shannon: "I'm currently in flirtation with fellow rookie cop, Brot." Lalala, I can't hear you! I'm too busy working for a living! Shut up, it IS work! Don't drown out the pics after the jump.

‘Legend of the Guardians’ Has Some Nice-Looking Owls

Thursday, March 4 by

Rejected early concept art.It's refreshing to see an animated film about anthropomorphic animals where poop-eating is not involved. Though this one may contain vomiting up mouse skeletons, which you gotta admit is pretty metal (poop-eating is more GG Allin).USA Today has pics from Zack Snyder's Legend of the Guardians, based on the children's book series The Guardians of Ga'Hoole, before the trailer premieres in front of Alice in Wonderland. The film is based on the first three installments of the book series: The Capture, The Journey, and The Rescue. The story follows a young barn owl who is captured and brainwashed to fight in the ongoing owl war that you probably didn't know about. He escapes along with other kidnapped owlets, and heads to the island of Ga’Hoole, to assist its noble, wise owls in fighting the army being created by the wicked rulers of St. Aggie’s. The producers describe the film as being more Harry Potter than Happy Feet. Which is why the voice cast features smart-sounding foreign people as opposed to actors from the Apatow camp. Which really is an outrage. Jonah Hill has a bacon habit to support. (USA Today)CHECK OUT HOW THE DESIGN HAS EVOLVED AFTER THE JUMP…
