George Lucas Couldn’t Care Less What You Think About Prequels

Wednesday, January 6 by

They never were able to get the smell of bacon out of the car's interior.George Lucas and his nine-month pregnant neck appeared on last night's episode of The Daily Show to promote his new book Blockbusting. When asked about the fan backlash against the trilogy of Star Wars prequels, Lucas responded, "It's a work of fiction. It's a metaphor, it's not real. And therefore you can either like it or not like it. Whatever." Oooh. Are you gonna take that haters? Or are you going to grab your shovels and do what needs to be done?? Check out the full interview…

Angels Beat the Holy Hell Out of Each Other in ‘Legion’ Clip

Wednesday, January 6 by

This clip from Dogma 2  Legion gives us a glimpse of the throwdown between Kevin Durand's black-winged Gabriel and Paul Bettany's fallen angel Michael. Here, Durand makes the normally fatal error of bringing a mace to a gun fight. But weapon choices don't really matter in this case because this movie was made after The Matrix. OBVIOUSLY angels are karate experts. It says so in the Bible. Right before the part where Moses walks away from the burning bush in slow motion.     Legion spin kicks into theaters on January 22nd, 2010. Watch the trailer here. (Yahoo)

Studio Mogul-Man Brings ‘Spider-Man 4′ and ‘Robocop’ to a Halt

Wednesday, January 6 by

Studio Mogul-Man has struck again! Due to his evil meddling, the Spiderman-4 and Robocop remake have grinded to a halt like a saw blade headed straight for your crotch. In the case of Spider-Man, Sam Raimi and Sony are butting heads over their villain of choice. Raimi wants The Vulture, and Sony, obviously haters of the evil avian variety, wants a romantic subplot involving Spidey and the Black Cat. In addition to the feline, they'd also like another antagonist, but that will probably turn into another fifteen. Maybe they can all gang rape Spider-Man in a orgy of CGI, 3D, and sticky webbing. As far as Robocop, Darren Aronofsky has left the project after refusing to turn it into an orgy of CGI, 3D, and why not some sticky webbing too. Mary Parent, Chairperson of MGM, is clearly looking to capitalize on the success of Avatar, and Aronofsky isn't interested in made-up worlds that don't exist except in computers. Robocop is awesome because it's gritty and real, not because ED209 is poking you in the eye with his hand-cannon.Spider-man 4 will most likely hit theaters before Robocop, but with Studio Mogul-Man on the loose, who knows what other havoc he could bring to the projects before they reach fruition.(via THR and Moviehole)

‘Bitch Slap’ Actress Erin Cummings

Wednesday, January 6 by

I now complete the SJ Bitch Slap trifecta. I've showcased America Olivo, Julia Voth, and now you get bombshell Erin Cummings. I could make fun of her surname, but I strive for high brow humor. So instead I'll just tell you that Bitch Slap cracks theaters in the mouth this Friday.A word from Erin: "When you grow up in Huntsville, Texas, the idea of moving to Los Angeles and pursuing an acting career is about the same as sprouting wings and heading for the moon."Cummings… Hehehe…More mature pics after the jump.

Farrellys Give Owen Wilson a ‘Hall Pass’ to Pursue Strange Tail

Wednesday, January 6 by

Before they move forward with their now back-on Three Stooges movie, the Farrelly Brothers will make Hall Pass with Owen Wilson their next project. Wilson stars as a man who has been given a one-week pass from his wife to sleep with any woman he wants. SNL's Jason Sudeikis stars as his best friend because Rob Corddry and Dan Fogler were otherwise indisposed. The film will follow their misadventures as they try to crush ass. Between this and Vince Vaughn's new project, why are there so many movies about getting some strange lately? Is it because of Tiger Woods?? Is Hollywood now only accepting pitches that align with Twitter trend topics? Anyway, the movie sounds like it could be a return to form for the once hilarious Farrellys. But mostly it just sounds like season four of Curb Your Enthusiasm. "I'm around town." (via THR)

Behind The Scenes of ‘A Nightmare On Elm Street’ Remake

Wednesday, January 6 by

I'm not sure if I should be eager about the upcoming remake of A Nightmare On Elm Street. Given the track record of recent genre rehashes and reports of reshoots and studio interference, it could go either way. Still there's a part of me that wants this film to be really good and by the looks of this behind the scenes footage, that may well be the case. This featurette, included on The Final Destination's DVD release (a movie so bad that I'd sooner barf lava than watch it again), shows Jackie Earle Haley in full-on Freddy mode. Definitely check it out especially if you're on the fence like I am. Or was. I'm now eager to see more. (via Dread Central)

Vince Vaughn and Ron Howard are Looking to Break Some Hearts

Tuesday, January 5 by

Age is a cruel bitch. Anyway, Vince Vaughn and Ron Howard have decided to team up for a movie written by Wall Street 2 scribe Allan Loeb. The story follows a man who learns that his best friend's wife is cheating and must then navigate treacherous waters to decide what do with that knowledge. I hope it takes place in the middle of the Pacific, and Vaughn's character befriends an abrasive but quick-witted shark who's only looking out for his pal's best interests. Treacherous waters, indeed… Ron Howard hasn't directed a comedy since Edtv, and some would argue (me) Angels & Demons offered more laughs than that movie. If this new project with Vaughn echoes the tone of Parenthood I think we could all be in for a real treat. Also, I'd like to make a casting suggestion for the cheating husband:AHHH, LITTLE CLINT HOWARD!!! I take back what I said about age!(via THR)

‘Entourage’s’ Adrian Grenier Last to Know He Sucks

Tuesday, January 5 by

He got schooled by Matt Damon before and now an unruly concertgoer has jumped on the bandwagon. While performing at Harrah's in Atlantic City with his band The Honey Brothers this past weekend, Adrian Grenier was accosted. "You suck, Grenier!," screamed a heroic citizen after rushing to the front row and throwing a drink at the Entourage star. "Adrian looked shocked," recalls an eyewitness, "Security came running up to the stage and had the guy removed." Umm, to give him a medal I hope. Just kidding. Watch this video below. It's all the proof you need that The Honey Brothers don't suck (at sucking).  (via NY Daily News)

Sean Penn is Larry Again in ‘The Three Stooges’

Tuesday, January 5 by

Sean Penn was attached to play Larry in the Farrelly Brothers' big screen The Three Stooges film last winter. Shortly after, he dropped out to work on his marriage with actress Robin Wright Penn. The couple have since decided to call it quits once and for all and so with that news, Penn is back on board Stooges alongside Benicio Del Toro's Moe. Problem is, noted actor and craft services fan Paul Giamatti picked up the Larry role after Penn put hoes before Farrelly Bros.Earlier plans were to hold a nationwide American Idol-esque casting call to find an actor who could take on the role of Curly. Perhaps Giamatti could fill those shoes with his porcine feet. Heck, he'll do anything. Can the star of Shoot 'Em Up really claim that a role is beneath him? (WENN)

‘Bitch Slap’ Actress Julia Voth

Tuesday, January 5 by

Julia Voth is a Canadian actress and model who is perhaps best known for her likeness being used as the basis for the character Jill Valentine from the video game Resident Evil: Biohazard. Now she's kicking human ass instead of zombie ass in the aptly titled movie Bitch Slap.A word from Julia: "You can be gorgeous, but if you don’t want to work for it, nothing is going to happen."Of course, we all have to work hard to succeed, but getting discovered by a talent agent on the beach while you're wading through the water in your bikini doesn't hurt matters.Check out more examples of Julia's talent after the jump.

Travolta Confuses Mannequins with People in ‘From Paris With Love’ Trailer

Tuesday, January 5 by

So many Kim Cattralls, so few bullets! Fresh off of informing you that Taken director Pierre Morel is taking over directing duties on the new Dune film, we get a second look at his most recent effort, From Paris With Love. In it, John Travolta plays one of those spy guys who breaks the rules, and doesn't play nice, and all that stuff. His father probably cracked beer bottles over his head when he was a just a little spy and now he's taking it out on a factory full of mannequins. These inconsiderate pricks never think that someone owns that factory. Oh, and Jonathan Rhys Meyers is the guy that can't believe John Travolta's character is such a rebel. If you'd like a more official synopsis: A low-ranking intelligence operative working in the office of the U.S. Ambassador in France takes on more than he bargained for when he partners with a wisecracking, fast-shooting, high-ranking U.S. agent  who's been sent to Paris to stop a terrorist attack. So basically what I said. From Paris With Love starring Travolta and his off-putting new look hits theaters February 5th. Check out the trailer after the jump.
