Conan O’Brien’s 60 Minutes Interview

Monday, May 3 by

Last night on "60 Minutes," Steve Kroft sat down with Conan O'Brien and asked him if he thought he got screwed, among other things. O'Brien joked that his contract with NBC prohibited him from speaking frankly on the matter, but that even if he didn't have a contract his opinions would remain cordial.Obviously Conan was hurt by the whole ordeal, and Leno and Zucker don't play in his sandbox anymore, but the former "Tonight Show" host insists that he didn't get screwed. Really, Conan? I mean, I don't exactly feel sorry for him considering he walked away with over $35 million, but when a prostitute walks away with a sweaty palm full of cash she knows how she earned it. She got screwed. And that's okay.  Check out the full interview below.

Hank Azaria Is Living Cartoon Gargamel in ‘Smurfs’

Monday, May 3 by

Don't freak on me but I forgot to update you guys that Hank Azaria is playing the fugly-ass wizard Gargamel in Sony/Columbia's very important Smurfs adaptation. Today we have our first look at the "Simpsons" star in full costume and I've gotta say, he looks the part. With these grotesque features, he could easily get work at Smurf Land Theme Park. If not as Gargamel, definitely as the groundskeeper who isn't allowed legally to be alone with children. Or livestock. The film's voice cast for the live-action/CGI blend consists of the Laugh-A-Minute All-Stars: Jonathan Winters, George Lopez, Kenan Thompson, Jeff Foxworthy, and renowned funny lady Katy Perry. Combine that knowledge with the fact that this film is directed by Beverly Hills Chihuahua's Raja Gosnell, and you're all but guaranteed to be made uncomfortable. Either by an awkward and confusing Smurf musical sequence or Smurfette's faux-lesbian posturing. (Coming Soon)

Full-Length ‘Piranha 3D’ Trailer Ruins Spring Break

Sunday, May 2 by

There's a new reason (besides interacting with pretty girls) to fear Spring Break this year: dying a fish-related death. That's why I've elected to stay on campus to get a jump on my courseload. I ran that plan by Mother and Mother agrees that's the best use of my time. The once-3D, then not 3D, then 3D again Piranha 3D has a full-length trailer that gives us a better look at the massacre at Lake Victoria. And it also gives us a better look at Ving Rhames ridiculously fighting a school of piranha with an outboard motor. That's the reason 3D was invented. Sh******t, that's the reason eyeballs were invented. Boobs, blood, and people dying unlikely deaths after the jump….

Ryan Reynolds in Over His Head in ‘Buried’ Trailer

Saturday, May 1 by

No stranger to being up to his neck in starlets and superhero movie offers, Ryan Reynolds is calling upon that practice for his role in Buried. The film, directed by Rodrigo Cortés, stars Reynolds as an American kidnapped by terrorists and buried alive with a 90 minute supply of oxygen. And a cell phone that works underground. Because they have those. The new teaser captures the excitement of "Rescue 9-1-1" and combines it with the ignorance of accidentally leaving the lens cap on. Buried was picked up for wide release at Sundance and opens in theaters September 24th, 2010. Though I feel like if they really want the experience to be immersive, it should be screened in state-of-the-art theater coffins. This post sponsored by FlickCrypts™. Dig into the trailer after the break…

‘Batman 3′ Gets Release Date

Friday, April 30 by

You see that, Batman? That's a release date for your next film. How does July 20, 2012 sound? (Warner Bros. forcefully shakes his head yes)Batman 3 hasn't even gone into production yet, as Christopher Nolan just completed Inception and wants to close his eyes for a minute, but little bro Jonathan Nolan is diligently working away on the script based off a story by himself and David Goyer. Since the film is going to be in 3D I hope they add a lot of "Bats fly at the screen!" in the action. You can never get enough bats flying at the screen. It's like they're gonna get caught in your hair! Eeeeeeee! (Deadline)

Shankman vs. Mendes For Trip to ‘Oz’

Friday, April 30 by

"You ain't got nothin', Mendes."The glittered gloves are off and the jazz hands are flyin'! "You Think You Can Dance" judge and Hairspray director Adam Shankman wants the job of making Oz, the Great and Powerful faaaaaaaaaabulous. Sam Mendes is currently circling the project, but Shankman brought his slap and tickle fight to Twitter. He's retweeting the tweets of his fans, who I have just dubbed "Shankmaniacs!" (exclamation point necessary), and building up a strong front. Good Charlotte singer Joel Madden is one impressionable tweeter on Team Shankman. That guy loves Chicken Nuggets, so Shankman probably has the gig on lock.(Vulture)

Ron Howard to Direct Stephen King’s ‘The Dark Tower’

Friday, April 30 by

Those who have tackled their own home-made adaptations of Stephen King's The Dark Tower are about to be upstaged twice over. Universal is in talks to condense the seven books by the creepy author (I said it) into a film trilogy directed by Ron Howard. Not only that, but they'll also produce a far crappier television version for shut-ins and Nielsen families.I'm not really sure how the story of the last gunslinger Roland Deschain will divide across film and television wthout confusing the chronology, and thinking about it has given me another one of my murder headaches. Well, time to chain myself up for the night again I suppose. (Deadline)

‘Gravity’ Actress Melissa Bacelar

Friday, April 30 by

Melissa Bacelar is well known in the horror world, and makes fanboys swoon when she appears at their conventions. She also was once a bartender at Coyote Ugly in NYC, an establishment that was then adapted into a horror movie itself. A word from Melissa: "If we look like bimbos or scientists that is what we will be cast as."How does one look like a scientist exactly? It's the pocket protector, isn't it? This damn thing. I knew there was a reason I wasn't landing lumberjack parts. Fanboys, quick! More pics of Melissa after the jump.

Kevin James; ‘Here Comes the Boom’; Fill In Joke

Friday, April 30 by

No stranger to making a sissy, Kevin James is now slated to go boom. Sony and Columbia have signed James to star in the action movie Here Comes the Boom. Salma Hayek is in talks for the female lead. If she is to sign on, this will be the second time her mammeries have starred opposite James's.The script is written by James and The Zookeeper scribe Rock Reuben, who is also a veteran of "The King of Queens." Though the log-line is being kept under wraps, the title conjurs up an image for me of the portly star slo-mo diving away from an explosion or toward a wedding cake. Maybe both. One way or the other, a cake is totally screwed in this movie. (Variety)

Here, Look at Chris Hemsworth as Thor

Friday, April 30 by

Go on, soak it up. Here's the first image of Chris Hemsworth as Marvel's next blockbuster busting character Thor. I'm diggin' the snake skin sleeve. It's like a Hot Topic superhero version of UnderArmor. That material soaks up sweat and brings it to the outside layer so it can dry faster, yo.My guess is the marketing bigwigs are revealing elements of Thor slowly and methodically. As you'll notice, there's no helmet or hammer in the above pic. Also, it's a close-up, so we don't get a good idea of what Thor is brooding over. My first inclination was he's taking a crap, but then I thought it's ridiculous to take a crap with your cape still on. Now if you'll excuse me, my morning coffee is taking effect. **Unbuttons cape, waddles to bathroom** (Yahoo)

No ‘Anchorman 2′ For You, AGAIN!!

Thursday, April 29 by

As previously reported, Adam McKay has a serious case of the frownies today. After severely cutting the budget, Anchorman 2 is still a no-go with Paramount. There was a glimmer of hope earlier this week when the original cast agreed to cut their prices, but Paramount decided to pass all the same.I imagine it went something like this:ADAM McKAY: So there you have it, The Further Legends of Ron Burgundy!!PARAMOUNT EXEC: Very funny. But I'll need to consult with my adviser.SLAMS MAGIC 8 BALL DOWN ON DESK.PARMOUNT EXEC: Oooh. It is decidely not so. MWUHAHAHAHAAHAHAHA!!!!!MAGIC 8 BALL: MWUHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!A TEAM OF BAYWATCH WRITERS CLOSES DOOR ON McKAY'S FACE.(via /Film)
