Monday, April 12 by

Nicole Scherzinger is the Queen Pussycat of The Pussycat Dolls. She tried to go solo, but it seems she's only a success when surrounded by the rest of her pussies. A word from Nicole: "I'm a beast of a woman who loves Jeff." Now I'm a shadow of a man who hates Jeff. He always ruins everything…Check out more pics of the beast Nicole after the jump.

‘Predators’ Scribes to Draw Swords With ‘He-Man’

Monday, April 12 by

I live in NYC, so seeing a shirtless man scream to the heavens and attempt to attack a skunk with a sword is an almost daily occurrence for me. But now, the entire world can see this type of activity on the big screen. If you thought the cancellation of Grayskull meant we'd never see He-Man on the big screen, you're the stupidest stupid who ever stupided (no offense). Today, THR reports that Mike Finch and Alex Litvak (Predators) have written a Masters of the Universe treatment for Mattel and Columbia Pictures that seems to make both the studio and the toy manufacturer happy. We'll keep you posted as the project develops, but all we can really do now is get lost in a K hole and drift off to these thumping beats. He Man sings – Watch more Funny Videosvia Slack Circus

Conan O’Brien Making TBS His New Home

Monday, April 12 by

I'm taking your time slot, and that's the end of it. Conan O'Brien chooses TBS.  In a surprise move, O'Brien announced on his Twitter this morning that the cable channel will be his new home:"The good news: I'll be doing a show on TBS starting in November. The bad news: I'll be playing Rudy on the all new Cosby Show."Coco's show will air at 11PM, Monday-Thursday, the slot now occupied by "Lopez Tonight." George Lopez is acting all "mi casa, su casa" about getting the bump to midnight, having called O'Brien personally and stating, "I can think of nothing better than doing my show with Conan as my lead-in."It was thought that Conan might land at FOX this Fall, but the affiliates' shared fear of replacing profitable "Seinfeld" reruns with a floppy, red-haired gamble put a wrench in the works. Conan couldn't seem happier about the move though, stating, ""In three months I've gone from network television to Twitter to performing live in theaters, and now I'm headed to basic cable. My plan is working perfectly."Next up, maybe blogging. Welcome to hell, Coco. (Variety)

10 Best Kids Living On The Edge Films

Monday, April 12 by

With Kick-Ass coming out this Friday, kids doing dangerous stuff is back on the screen. There was a time not too long ago when kids in films were allowed to smoke, shoot, and curse because after all that is what real raging hormonal teens do. Their stories ranged from slum dramas to precautionary tales to pure adventure stories, all of which feature some of the best performances by child actors in the history of cinema and took conservative parental guidance to the edge. Let's take a look at some of the most extreme bad-ass kids ever shown on the big screen. The Monster Squad (1987) – Living on the movie monster edge

Green Lantern’s Suit Will Be Computer Generated

Monday, April 12 by

Fans of Green Lantern have been eager to see Ryan Reynolds in the hero's spandex since news of casting broke. However, their waiting has been in vain because /Film has announced that there is no suit. Not a physical suit anyway.Costume designer Ngila Dickson (LOTR, The Last Samurai) has devised a way to make the suit stand out from all the other superhero films — it will be computer generated. That news may worry purists, and understandably so. A CG suit in a 3D film is cause for major concern. Hopefully Warner Bros won't repeat their "bat-nipples" mistakes of yesteryear.The worry may be premature though. Both DC and Warner Bros. insiders are reportedly very happy with the results, and word is that "the suit will look like a manifestation of [the ring's] power." Much like my teal Crocs are a manifestation of me looking good and knowing it.

Tony Jaa Goes Through a Goth Phase in ‘Ong Bak 3′ Trailer

Sunday, April 11 by

"MINDFREAK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" Planet Earth's leading authority on hitting people, Tony Jaa, is back in this full trailer of Ong Bak 3. It begins with Jaa having the tar beaten out of him. Literally. They actually use his vital fluids to pave We Finally Kicked Tony Jaa's Ass Avenue (if you've never been, you need to go. There's a little place there that has THE BEST hobo noodles.). Of course being beaten to death can't stop Tony Jaa, so he returns from the grave dressed like Criss Angel and gets back to doing what he does best: killing guys with the aid of elephants. And biting faces off. Despite these athletic outlets, Tony's new emo goth behavior has me concerned. I really hope he's not carving Morrissey lyrics into his arm. Check out the trailer after the jump…

Mickey Rourke Wants a F*ckin’ Beer

Saturday, April 10 by

Mickey Rourke stars in this commercial where he's essentially playing his gruff self. He sits down at a hotel bar with his chihuahua, orders a beer, and the bartender has the balls to give him a non-alcoholic brand. The man must be suicidal. Who in their right mind tries to pull one over on Mickey Rourke when he would clearly have no qualms about using your eye socket as a bottle opener? If anyone knows when something's lacking alcohol, it's Rourke. (FilmDrunk)

‘The Losers’ Trailer, Now With More Banter

Friday, April 9 by

"I see you." If you're on the fence about The Losers, check out this extended trailer. But please ignore its attempts at glib humor. It's probably just nervous around you. The extended look begins with Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Zoe Saldana flirting the Whitney and Bobby way (closed-fist punches and motel room fires), and then jumps into an introduction to the rest of the team, despite the fact we met them already in Sneakers and The Italian Job. The action doesn't stack up to what we've seen of The A-Team or The Expendables, but it doesn't insult our intelligence by having a tank fight a jet in mid-air or giving Jet Li comedic dialogue. Plus, it shows you how to make a homemade rocket launcher. Who doesn't need one of those? Besides Whitney and Bobby. Sex, anal, and violence after the jump….

Quentin Tarantino Cruelly Waves ‘Vega Brothers’ Carrot Before Michael Madsen’s Nose

Friday, April 9 by

Michael Madsen is saying things again. According to the actor, Quentin Tarantino figured out a way to move forward with the Vega Brothers film that he's been hoping to do for years now. Originally envisioned as a prequel pairing Pulp Fiction bad-ass Vincent Vega and Reservoir Dogs bad-ass Vic Vega, the film would star both John Travolta and Madsen. Then Tarantino decided that the actors were too old (a polite way of saying swollen) to play younger versions of their memorable characters. Now Madsen says that QT has a way to set the film in modern day and work around the fact that both Vincent and Vic Vega are deceased. But how? “No, actually Quentin went down to Tijuana recently, and on his return he said that he came up with an idea that the movie didn’t have to be a prequel, that John and I could play each other's twin brothers."  “I’d be Vic Vega’s twin brother,” Madsen explained. “[Travolta would] be Vincent’s twin brother and we’re both on a flight from Los Angeles, having just been released from prison, and neither one of us know that we’re the twin brother of the other one and we’re both on our way back to LA to avenge the death of our brothers.” Now I've heard stories about Tijuana but… wow. Either Tarantino went down there for some serious mind expansion, or he fell asleep while watching  Big Business on cable. Just like the time he fell asleep watching Overboard. That's how we got Kill Bill, you know. (WAAF Boston via Cinematical) Watch Madsen's interview after the jump…

‘Date Night’ Actress Taraji P. Henson

Friday, April 9 by

Taraji P. Henson is best known for her role as pregnant prostitute Shug in Craig Brewer's Hustle & Flow and the foster mother of the gross Brad Pitt baby/old man in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. For the latter, she was nominated for an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress. Personally, I found the hooker role more compelling.A word from Taraji: "Tyler Perry's method is very hard core, very in your face, not tiptoeing around."Does he do this all while dressed as Madea? If so, I can understand why you'd take him so seriously. More of Taraji in your face after the jump.

‘The Other Guys’ Trailer

Friday, April 9 by

The trailer for The Other Guys has dropped and it provides a great deal more context than the fancy schmancy motion poster did. Although a part of me is missing the "Ridin' Dirty" background music. Watch out, synopsis comin' atchya! Set in New York City, The Other Guys follows Detective Allen Gamble (Ferrell), a forensic accountant who’s more interested in paperwork than hitting the streets, and Detective Terry Hoitz (Wahlberg), who has been stuck with Allen as his partner ever since an embarrassing public incident with his quick trigger finger. Allen and Terry idolize the city’s top cops, Danson and Manzetti (Dwayne Johnson and Samuel L. Jackson), but when an opportunity arises for the Other Guys to step up, things don’t quite go as planned.

Ashley Greene to Play in ‘Butter’

Friday, April 9 by

Ashley Greene enjoys butter so much she's signed on to co-star in a movie about it. The film centers on an Iowa woman (played by Jennifer Garner) who attempts to win a butter-carving title formerly held by her husband (Ty Burrell), only to be thwarted by a young black girl (Yara Ahahidi). Wait, where's the part about Greene slathered in hydrogenated oil? This has been one big tease!  Greene will play a rebellious high schooler named Kaitlen Pickler in the film directed by Jim Field Smith, who also directed hottie Alice Eve in She's Out of My League. Just a suggestion, but a movie starring Ashley Greene, Alice Eve, butter, and absolutely no premise sounds like box office gold. Mainly because I would personally see it 250,000,000 times. (THR)
