Bryan Cranston Joins ‘John Carter of Mars’

Thursday, January 14 by

  Breaking Bad's meth cooking schoolteacher Bryan Cranston has joined the cast of Andrew Stanton's foray into live-action, John Carter of Mars. Taylor Kitsch stars as the Civil War veteran John Carter, who is mysteriously transported to Mars and joins the Martian people in their own war. Cranston will play a Civil War colonel who comes into conflict with Carter. Also on board for the Pixar film are Lynn Collins, Willem Dafoe, Mark Strong, and Thomas Haden Church. All are playing giant, green warrior-like aliens. I know. I know. You already want to compare this to Avatar. But that comparison really doesn't hold up. First of all, this is based off a book series by Edgar Rice Burroughs. Cameron stole his story from a novella. Plus, the Na'vi are blue not green. Do your research, guys. (THR)

‘Jurassic Park IV’ will be First Film in a New Trilogy!

Wednesday, January 13 by

Come back, Jeff Gowdbwum! I want to pway more!In a recent interview with Boxoffice Magazine, Joe Johnston, director of The Wolfman, confirmed that Jurassic Park IV is definitely happening, and will most likely be the beginning of a new trilogy of Jurassic Park films:Well, there is going to be a Jurassic Park IV. And it's going to be unlike anything you've seen. It breaks away from the first three—it's essentially the beginning of the second Jurassic Park trilogy. It's going to be done in a completely different way. He went on to say:If you think of the first three as a trilogy, number four would be the beginning of a second trilogy. If they keep working—and if audiences keep going to them—there's no reason why there wouldn't be. We just want to make them justified in their own right. We don't want to make sequel after sequel just because there's a market for it. We want to tell different, interesting stories. You don't want to just sell hamburger.The island dinosaurs are going to terrorize three more groups of people?! You know evolution has failed when humans continue going back to a defunct theme park thats most popular ride is being eaten alive by prehistoric beasts. Nonetheless, if Jurassic Park IV can bring the series back to level of the first film I'll stand in line just like I did in 1993.

‘Ironclad’ Trailer is Quality-Challenged

Wednesday, January 13 by

Um. The first trailer for Ironclad is online and it… um, yeah. I mean, I don't get it. It has real actors in it like Richard Attenborough, Robert Carlyle, Bob Hoskins,  James Purefoy, Brian Cox, and Pete Poselthwaite. At least one of those guys is an actual lord! How is this so bad looking? Is it performance art?? If so, where's James Franco??? It honestly looks like footage from a Ren Faire. Paul Giamatti has reportedly joined the cast since this trailer was filmed. He'll be disappointed to find out it's not an actual Ren Faire. Therefore, no deep-fried Oreos. Have a look for yourself. Just kidding. The actual Ironclad trailer is after the jump but it's no better than what you just saw. (via Cinematical)

‘The Thing’ Prequel Is Now Casting

Wednesday, January 13 by

Cameras are still set to roll in March for Matthijs van Heijningen Jr.'s prequel to The Thing. Plot details are beginning to surface as the date approaches. Spoiler TV published the casting breakdown which helps fill in some of the gaps on the story.News of note is that the film has a female lead and early rumors about MacReady's brother appearing in the film were wrong. I've posted the casting specs after the jump with the spoilers removed for those who have never seen a movie before and can't guess who will and will not survive. I can say that after reading through the spoilers and character descriptions, it seems that the movie borrows from Aliens, Lethal Weapon, and The Mist. In other words, we've got another Deep Blue Sea on our hands. LL Cool J should be expecting a call any day now. (Spoiler TV)CHECK OUT THE CASTING BREAKDOWN AFTER THE JUMP…

‘The Book of Eli’ Actress Mila Kunis

Wednesday, January 13 by

I'm a little late to the party with Mila Kunis, but it's better than never showing up at all. Would ya look at that face?! I thought she was great in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and personally can't wait to see her kick some ass in The Book of Eli. Is that one of those post-apocalyptic movies where people walk around naked all the time? A word from Mila: "Blondes definitely do not have more fun. Trust me."I'm sorry, but I'm gonna need some proof, Mila. One wild night out on the town with you will help convince me. More examples of Mila having fun after the jump.

Hitler Weighs in on the OBrien/Leno Controversy – Watch more Funny VideosIt was only a matter of time until the ruthless dictator made his opinion of The Tonight Show controversy known. He's clearly on Team O'Brien, and is infuriated that NBC ruined his vacation to sunny Southern California. It was going to be suck a nice weekend for Hitler in Los Angeles. He was so looking forward to sitting in The Tonight Show audience and giggling joyfully at Conan's floppy red hair. And now NEIN!

Vera Farmiga & Michelle Monaghan Join Duncan Jones’s ‘Source Code’

Wednesday, January 13 by

Moon director Duncan Jones will be following up his debut with another sci-fi entry. Source Code stars Jake Gyllenhaal as a soldier investigating a terrorist bombing of a train. Using an experimental technology, Gyllenhaal enters the body of an unknown commuter and must relive the bombing over and over again until he finds who is responsible for the act (Could it be him? What are the twist-ending chances??). Vera Farmiga and Michelle Monaghan have just joined the time-travel mystery. Farmiga will play the communications officer controlling Gyllenhaal and Monaghan will play a love interest he encounters while travelling. Time to come clean a little bit. I originally planned to group the above pictures of the actresses together in the hopes that one thing may lead to another and that they would start to kiss a little bit. Then that baby had to show up and spoil my genius plot. I'll get you for this baby! Just as soon as I can pull my pants back up. (THR)

Late Night Disses NBC Big Time

Wednesday, January 13 by

Last night, late night television had a rip roaring good time ripping NBC a new asshole. Everyone is pretty amped up over the whole O'Brien/Leno debacle, and the hosts presented a unified front by expressing their disdain for the floundering network in their own special ways. David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel, Craig Ferguson, and even Conan himself didn't hold back. I've posted a couple of my favorite clips below from last night's roast of NBC. The first one shows Conan playing a game of Deal or No Deal with Howie Mandel in an effort to decide his future. The second is Jimmy Kimmel's monologue, where he decided to impersonate a certain big-chined "funny"man.

  James Gunn is going to break the Internet if he keeps casting so many geek-friendly actors in his upcoming Super. The superhero dark comedy stars Rainn Wilson as a man who up and decides to be a superhero after his wife leaves him despite his lack of powers.
