‘Godzilla’ Rises From the Depths Once Again

Monday, March 29 by

Legendary Pictures is gearing up for an American remake of Godzilla, the well-known monster most famous for destroying Tokyo more times than panty-sharking. This seems like a bad idea. Roland Emmerich's attempt to bring Toho's monster to American shores was terribly goofy and has really soured the public's need to see another film. For that reason, Legendary wants to make it clear that this movie will not be a sequel to that movie. It will be a re-imagining of the Japanese Godzilla films, but I'm still hesitant to trust–Wait what's this?Oh, okay. That's adorable. I can't stay mad at him now. Post-convert it to 3D and bring it on Legendary!

‘Iron Man 2′ TV Spot Shows Off Speaking Roles

Monday, March 29 by

This one's for all of you losers who went out Saturday night and missed "Nickelodeon's Kid's Choice Awards". Your incessant need to beer bong and talk to women almost prevented you from seeing this Iron Man 2 TV spot featuring footage unseen heretofore. This new spot shows off Scarlett Johannson's talent for saying words and reveals that her character doesn't have the Russian accent she was expected to have. Up until now, I didn't even notice she hadn't talked in the previous ads. Between that and Don Cheadle's little moment, I guess the intent is to remind the public that there are actors in this movie amongst all the CGI. Also note that there is zero footage of Mickey Rourke as villain Whiplash in this spot. Test groups show that Mickey Rourke doesn't chart well with the youth demographic. Something about him being "scary" and "murder eyes." All that can be changed though by casting him as a rough around the edges babysitter who also is a spy. It's your move FOX. Watch the spot after the jump.

‘Gossip Girl’ Actress Leighton Meester

Monday, March 29 by

Leighton Meester plays a bad teen on TV's Gossip Girl, but in real life she's just your average prudish twenty-something. At least that's what all the quotes from her say. This seems perfectly believable if you forget that she has a sex tape. A word from Leighton: "When you move from Florida to New York, you're in for a big shock." I know, right?! You can get a pastrami sandwich any time of the night! But other than that they're almost exactly the same. See more of how innocent Leighton is after the jump.

Scarface School Play

Monday, March 29 by

Someone sent Break this elementary school production of Scarface. I have no idea what district would allow such explicit material to be portrayed by children, or why they used popcorn instead of cocaine, but I wish my old school was this cool. My guess is some drama teacher got his pink slip and said, "F*ck it, I'm puttin' on Scarface." Then before the administrators knew it, Tony Montana was dead face down in a hot tub and parents were clapping from sheer confusion.  Check out the coolest school production ever below.

‘The Hobbit’ Delayed Yet Again

Monday, March 29 by

Fantasy movie-making BFF's (big fat fatties) Peter Jackson and Guillermo Del Toro have been been delayed further in their attempts to bring The Hobbit to cineplexes. Filming was slated to begin in June but has now been pushed back toward the end of the year. This push will probably jeopardize plans for the film's late 2012 release. TheOneRing.net cites the on-going money troubles over at the co-producing MGM as the reason for the delay and until they pull themselves out of debt, this film will not be receiving a greenlight.Personally I wish they'd hurry the hell up. I'd really like to be able to leave my house but I look ridiculous in this Gandalf costume that I was accidentally stitched into. (The Playlist)

David Cronenberg and Viggo Mortensen Back for ‘Eastern Promises 2′

Monday, March 29 by

Citing the lack of buck naked knife fights in recent films, David Cronenberg has reteamed with his muse Viggo Mortensen once more for a sequel to the 2007 film Eastern Promises. Steve Knight, who wrote the original as well as David Fincher's upcoming Pawn Sacrifice, has finished the script and Cronenberg is scheduled to begin filming next winter after he and Mortensen wrap The Talking Cure.At this time it is unknown if Naomi Watts and Viggo's manhood will reprise their roles but we should hope that Mortensen's package makes another appearance, because it was by far and away the breakout star of the original. Perhaps there's room for a naked rake fight in the script. (Deadline)

The Long National Wait Is Over; ‘Battlefield Earth’ Screenwriter Apologizes

Sunday, March 28 by

We all know that Battlefield Earth is bad. Like, worse than stuff on Fox Family bad. In fact, it won the "Worst Movie of the Decade" Razzie this month. An award that screenwriter J.D. Shapiro showed up to pick up in person. In today's New York Post, Shapiro wrote an apology that's ten years overdue. Think of all the people who went to their graves without this much-needed mea culpa. He also provided some backstory to explain how the turd was squeezed onto screens. Naturally, his penis is to blame:It started, as so many of my choices do, with my Willy Wonker. It was 1994, and I had read an article in Premiere magazine saying that the Celebrity Center, the Scientology epicenter in Los Angeles, was a great place to meet women.So a grown man who refers to his penis as his Willy Wonker wanted to get some crazy tail and as a result was hired to write a $100 million movie. And that led to Forest Whitaker wearing dreadlocks and Travolta talking like a castmember of Zoobilee Zoo. Hooray for Hollywood.You can read Shapiro's full piece at the NY Post. But be warned, you'll have to grit your teeth and suffer through his jokes. They're worse than ours.

Time Runs Out for ’24′

Saturday, March 27 by

Jack didn't take it very well.FOX has decided to pull the plug on 24 after eight seasons. Climbing budgets, declining ratings, and writers being unable to figure out what the hell is left for Jack Bauer to save are the main reasons the show will air its final episode in May. NBC flirted with the idea of picking up 24 next season but after their accountants crunched the numbers they realized the content wasn't worth the cheddar.There's still the possibility of a 24 feature film that would take Jack Bauer to Europe, but there's also the possibility of an Arrested Development movie, and we all know how sluggishly that's been making its adaptation. I enjoyed 24 a great deal in its earlier years, but quickly got tired of the same "Tell me where the bomb is!" storyline week after week after week after week. It had a good run. I'm glad they're ending it before it jumps a terrorist shark strapped to the gills with C4. (THR)

International ‘The Sorcerer’s Apprentice’ Trailer Tries to Convince Us Magic is Cool

Friday, March 26 by

Jerry Bruckheimer would like you to know that Nicolas Cage is not some gay-bay sorcerer like you're used to seeing. No way. This sorcerer drives a sports car (and is probably going through a sorcerer's mid-life crisis). A new international trailer for The Sorcerer's Apprentice was conjured up today. (*submits resume to Variety*) In this version, we see the same framework of the first with Nicolas Cage in a dopey hat abducting Jay Baruchel from his life as a physics nerd to induct him into the life of a magic nerd. The largest difference is more footage of the excellent Alfred Molina as the villian "Maxim," a nefarious sorcerer who hangs out in dudes' bathrooms but then gets hidden hastily when girls are over. Sadly you'll have to wait until July 16th to see Cage go full-wizard. Witness the magic of computer effects after the jump…

Heidi Montag’s Breasts vs. Shark. Why Can’t THIS Be a Reality Show?

Friday, March 26 by

"We're gonna need some bigger breasts."Look what you started, Adam Sandler. You gave Heidi Montag a cameo in Just Go With It and now she thinks she's Cecil B-Cup Demille. She tells People (or anyone else who will listen):“I am making the first 3D beach comedy about a shark that attacks a small beach town and I save the day with my 3D boobs. I’m now finally free to start my career and my new life as a female mogul in Hollywood! I’ve even written a role for Dolly Parton to play the town mayor!” Granted, it's a nice use of 3D but this movie is so insulting to victims of shark attacks and their families. If she could, I'm sure Bethany Hamilton would flip Heidi off with both middle fingers.

‘The Other Guys’ Motion Poster

Friday, March 26 by

A teaser for The Other Guys hit ShoWest last week and now Yahoo has officially released it to people who aren't allowed back in Vegas, deeming it a "motion poster." Call me old fashioned, but I like a play and pause button on my media. Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell sliding across screen like a couple of bad ass cops is a damn fine thing to witness so enjoy the autoplay and autorepeat. Don't you DARE close that window until it's cycled at least 10 times. Check out the fancy, shmancy motion poster after the jump.
