Kaley Cuoco Joins Non-Pancake Comedy ‘I, Hop’

Wednesday, March 31 by

Russell Brand will be added in post. Before you start salivating, this movie isn't about a tall stack smothered in maple syrup with a side of hash browns and sausage. Kaley Cuoco, Sheldon's dreamy tall stack on The Big Bang Theory, has joined the Easter Bunny comedy (is that a thing?) I, Hop. Russell Brand and James Marsden are already set to star in the film that I'm sure will do for Easter what Adam Sandler's Eight Crazy Nights did for Hanukkah. Cuoco will play Marsden's character's sister, "who allows Marsden to live with her when he gets kicked out by his parents because he injures a big f*cking bunny rabbit and brings it home to live with him." Talk about a bad house guest! I just hope there's a gag with him in a mailbox. That joke gets me every time. (THR)

Everyone’s Back for ‘The Hangover 2′

Wednesday, March 31 by

Warner Bros never expected The Hangover to become successful enough to lead to a sequel so they didn't sign the actors up for additional films. Though it's been expected that Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, and Zach Galifianakis would return for another day of delirium tremens, nothing was confirmed until today.Deadline reports that each actor will be paid in the $5 million range. That's a huge step upward considered they didn't earn $1 million collectively for the original film. I'm terrified/delighted to see what Zach Galifianakis will spend that money on. If anyone sees someone driving a hovercraft on the freeway, it's probably him. Director Todd Phillips will be cashing in as well, though his gamble to receive 15% of the original's gross has already made him a very rich man.No plot specifics for the sequel have been released yet, though I have a sinking suspicion it involves drinking and trying to remember what Galifianakis stuck his penis into the previous night.

‘Survival of the Dead’ Red-Band Trailer Finally Gets Around to Shooting a Zombie With a Flare Gun

Tuesday, March 30 by

Parents groups are up in arms over the growing popularity of red-band trailers and the ease with which children are able to access them. What they need to do is face the fact that red-band trailers are awesome and it's growing much harder to monitor their kids due to the Internet's reach. This battle is lost parents. You should just focus on being "cool parents" and pop the corn, kick back, and check out this second red-band trailer for George Romero's Survival of the Dead. It's not that explicit except for all the blood and guts and stuff. Also, a zombie rides a horse. Sidenote: Here we are in the year 2010 and Romero has six Living Dead movies under his belt and he's only now breaching shooting zombies with a flare gun territory. Now that's an artist who knows how to keep things fresh. Win the adoration of your gore-loving children after the jump.

‘Werewolves of Reseda’ Gets One in the Pink

Tuesday, March 30 by

Though Tom Petty lyrics would lead you to believe Reseda to be a haven for vampires, Hot Tub Time Machine director Steve Pink is aiming to set the record straight with Werewolves of Reseda. The story, which is about a group of guys gradually turning into werewolves, is being described as The Hangover with a horror twist. Wouldn't that just be The Hangover with more Carrot Top footage?At any rate, it's getting all kinds of werewolf-y in here. Off the top of my head I can think of six or seven werewolf-centric projects already released or in production. Between all that Twilight stuff, The Wolfman, MTV's "Teen Wolf" series, MMA Werewolves, The Monster Squad, David Hayter's Wolves, and Alec Baldwin hosting the Oscars, there's never been an easier time for really hairy dudes to get work.

‘Parenthood’ Actress Monica Potter

Tuesday, March 30 by

Monica Potter is that actress who kinda looks like Julia Roberts. She was Nic Cage's wife in Con Air and Robin Williams' girlfriend in Patch Adams. After having a fictitious relationship with those two hop heads, being married to Peter Krause on Parenthood must be a relief. A word from Monica: "People figure because I'm blonde and was a model, I just waltzed into Los Angeles and got major roles in major films." That's ridiculous. No one "waltzes" anymore. You most likely strutted into L.A. and got major roles in major films. People are idiots. Check out more pics of the blond model after the jump.

8 Movie Geezers Not to Mess With

Tuesday, March 30 by

Back in the good-old days, the elderly were revered as a valuable source of knowledge. Their vast life experiences were respected not only as a link to the past, but also as guide for the future.  Yes, old people were once a cherished commodity. Just kidding! I assume old people have always been considered lame, but I don’t know for sure because I never learned history. History is for old people, and I hate old people. But I will say this; in the world of Hollywood make-believe, there are a few old dudes that I would not want to piss off. Luckily we live in the real world where old dudes can barely walk. But all the same, here’s a list of eight movie geezers you don’t want to mess with.

Tom Cruise Loooves Holding Women Hostage in New ‘Knight & Day’ Trailer

Tuesday, March 30 by

The new trailer for Knight & Day gives us a better look at Tom Cruise going batcrap crazy and kidnapping Cameron Diaz. In the trailer, he's described as being mentally unstable, violent and dangerous, and having suffered a full-blown break with reality. Yet, Cameron Diaz still eats up the attention. That's such a crock. Whenever I like a girl and cling to her windshield as she speeds down the expessway, the authorities are brought in and my parent's have to move again. But Johnny Handsome here does the same thing and it's considered a meet cute. Maybe my standards are out of whack. I should pursue someone closer to my own age. Like Katherine Heigl. Watch Cruise save Cameron from the forces of Peter Sarsgaard after the jump.

Will Smith Willingly Attached to Independence Day Sequels?

Tuesday, March 30 by

The Fresh Prince of Bel Air and DJ Jazzy Jeff before a show on the mothership. Back in November we reported that Roland Emmerich wanted to do two Independence Day sequels back-to-back. We laughed at the idea and made fun of his German accent as we reenacted his interview to MTV, but now we might have to wipe a whole lotta sauerkraut off our faces because Will Smith bitch-slapped us with his recent attachment to the projects.According to IESB, Smith is on board for both sequels, possibly titled ID4-Ever Part I and Part II, a delicious pun that I hope never changes. Emmerich stated in the previous interview that the story would again be set on Earth, and the reason for two movies is that he wants "to do a bigger story arc." If I had it my way, Part II would consist entirely of Bill Pullman shooting confused looks at the rest of the ensemble cast and then delivering one ridiculously long-winded monologue before ACTUAL Randy Quaid flies off in a jet to fight aliens. Now if we can somehow invent the technology to scoop images directly out of Randy's brain they wouldn't have to shoot even a single frame. It's practically the only thing the man thinks about these days.

Brad Fuller Talks ‘Elm Street’, Future of Platinum Dunes

Tuesday, March 30 by

Producers Brad Fuller and Andrew Form have cultivated a career remaking horror films under the tutelage of Michael Bay. Remaking a film beloved by fans is always a risky maneuver, unless it's an all-child version of Scarface. Platinum Dunes has drawn the ire of fan boys and horror zealots with their take on The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Friday the 13th. They're next effort, A Nightmare on Elm Street, is already being maligned. With that in mind they've decided to change their game by stepping away from ruining childhoods and move into ruining graphic novels. Fuller tells Dread Central:"The studio has decided to move forward and look for new types of material, which is how we got involved with Existence 2.0. I love action-y type material, and these graphic novels had that feel to them. Our writers are currently working on the script for that project.”Does that mean they are done with horror entirely? More after the jump.

AMC Orders ‘The Walking Dead’ to Series

Monday, March 29 by

Back in January we reported that AMC had greenlighted the pilot for "The Walking Dead", and now the network has ordered six episodes while the pilot is still in the casting stages. These six episodes will complete the first season, an order that might not seem sufficient for fans of the graphic novel, but we shouldn't bite the brains that feed us.The biggest of those brains belongs to Frank Darabont, who wrote and directed the pilot, and who will serve as executive producer of the series. Robert Kirkman, the creator of the graphic novel, will also serve as executive producer along with Gale Anne Hurd, David Alpert, and Charles Eglee, who was a writer on "Dexter." "The Walking Dead" is set to premiere in October 2010 during AMC's Fearfest (formally MonsterFest), the network's annual marathon of thriller and horror films. (THR)

‘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.
