‘Up in the Air’ Actress Vera Farmiga

Tuesday, December 1 by

Vera Farmiga's got a nice figure. You may remember ogling it in Running Scared, with Paul Walker's hands groping it, or in The Departed, with Leo DiCaprio's hands groping it. Now George Clooney's hands will get the chance in Up in the Air.   A word from Vera: "I really don't feel a need to be famous. But I do feel a need to make a difference, to shed light on human emotion through acting."Not to use an outdated reference, but gag me with a spoooooooon. Cowabunga. Feel the need to make a difference with the pics after the jump.

‘The Hangover 2′ Script Is Half In The Bag

Tuesday, December 1 by

The Hangover director Todd Phillips recently talked sequel with Entertainment Weekly without really giving away too many details. His script is reportedly half-finished (will the other half be improvised by Zach Galifianakis?) and is not set in Las Vegas. In fact, Phillips wants to distance the sequel from the plotline of the original.“What people loved about 'The Hangover' was not Las Vegas or the bachelor party but these three characters,” Phillips says. “I think you can take those characters and put them in other situations, and you don’t need the sell of Vegas and a bachelor party and all that other stuff.”In summation, you can expect a sequel to the possible Oscar contender that involves an adventure of some sort but no one has any idea what it is. Maybe they're searching for Mike Tyson's gold? I bet they're searching for Mike Tyson's gold. (via EW)

Infographic: Movie Heist Hauls Vs. GDP

Tuesday, December 1 by

Let me get this on the table right now: I am not an economist. In addition, I don't read The Economist. If pressed, I probably couldn't give you a good definition of the word economist.But, I like movies. I know movies, and I know movies where there are guys looking for a big score (usually, they're not economists either). And, outside some of the more ridiculous amounts of money sought (cough, Swordfish) – there has been a slight upward trend of hauls of monies in heist films.You know what else has a general upward trend (or a drastic one, that real economists warn against)? The GDP – aka the Gross Domestic Product. Please refer again to the opening sentence before you read this: the GDP is a handy little way to say, "Look how valuable this country is."

‘Iron Man 2′ Teaser Poster Goes Full-Robot

Tuesday, December 1 by

Yesterday I showed you what Don Cheadle would look like as Iron Man 2's War Machine in toy form. And today, I offer you the film's teaser poster. Here we see Iron Man and War Machine in a Bad Boys-esque pose against a stormy sky. The War Machine armor looks pretty similar to Iron Man's save for additional weaponry and hydraulics. The suit may also be assless. It's very hard to tell from this angle.Jon Favreau has announced the first trailer will premiere in front of Sherlock Holmes, so be on the lookout for that later this month. And Ozzy Osbourne, please be advised to keep an eye out for royalty checks, as we are quickly approaching an Iron Man media blitz. (Yahoo)Click on the poster below to marvel at the larger version.

‘Steven Seagal: Lawman’ Extended Preview

Monday, November 30 by

A&E launches the single greatest reality series about an aikido champion/actor turned cop this Wednesday with Steven Seagal: Lawman (aka Fat Lieutenant: Port Of Call New Orleans). For those not in the know, Steven Seagal has volunteered with the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Department for the past 20 years. This show chronicles his main duties giving martial arts training to the officers as well as assisting with arrests. It's almost just like COPS, the only difference being the perps are arrested by the man on the poster they have framed in their living rooms. Have a look at an earlier preview or check out the brand new, extended preview below. I'm looking forward to the cliffhanger season finale when Seagal's rogue tactics require that he hand over his badge, never ending donut bowl, and gun.

Paul Greengrass Bounces On ‘Bourne 4′

Monday, November 30 by

"And is it true they will honk when I squeeze them?"Director Paul Greengrass has decided he won't aim his shakey, blurry camera at Jason Bourne for a third time. The Bourne Supremacy and Bourne Ultimatum director has had a falling out with cash-strapped Universal, causing him to walk away from the fourth film. Apparently he is upset that the studio brought in a new screenwriter for the project without his consent and the studio is upset by Greengrass's going way over budget on his current project, Green Zone.Given Matt Damon's loyalty to Greengrass, this could be bad news for Universal. Could we have another Matt Damon freakout on our hands? According to the Playlist, some are citing Greengrass's ghosting as a "typical Paul move" and that he'll return to the project in short order. Another noted, "That's so Paul!", but it was difficult to determine if he was being serious or merely refering to Greengrass's failed Disney sitcom. (The Playlist)

‘Up in the Air’ Actress Tamala Jones

Monday, November 30 by

Tamala Jones and her fine behind have starred in several TV shows, but they can currently be seen in ABC's Castle as Lanie Parish, the medical examiner, and Lanie Parish's booty. Also look for both of them in Up In The Air on Friday. You know George Clooney will be looking. Daaaaamn.  A word from Tamala: "I heard that I whooped Bobby Brown's ass at a Lucky Strike."Pffff, who hasn't whooped Bobby Brown's ass at a Lucky Strike? He practically replaces the bowling balls at that place.The pics after the jump are a strike and a half.

Matthew McConaughey is Alllllllright with Animation

Monday, November 30 by

Matthew McConaughey needs to get his core in shape because he's producing an animated series with FOX based on his brother's life. One has absolutely nothing to do with the other, but if you're going to just keep living (Matty's motto), you need a tight core."Rooster Tales" follows the world of a beer-swilling, redneck sheriff who marries a much younger woman from Mexico. The man soon realizes, however, that he's gained not only a wife but an entire clan — 114 members and counting.Here's what McConaughey had to say about it:"My brother's life is so unbelievable, we had to animate it." I got news for you Matthew, if everyone's life that's unbelievable was animated we'd have a sh*tload of Seal cartoons.How did that guy marry Heidi Klum?!(via Variety)

An Early Look At Don Cheadle as War Machine

Monday, November 30 by

No official studio images have been released yet, but we now have a good look at Don Cheadle as War Machine: The Toy. Diamond Previews sent out their advance listings catalogue and in the process have given a glimpse of Cheadle's Iron Man 2 character. Though the full body is blacked out (sorry, no camel toe) we get a decent look at Cheadle's face and helmet. I can already tell that this one is way cooler than his Hotel Rwanda action figure.Don't stare into his creepy mo-cap eyes for too long. That's how Zemeckis imprisons your soul. (Bleeding Cool)

‘Amityville Horror’ Remake of the Remake Seems Totally Natural

Saturday, November 28 by

Well it's no surprise that the Weinsteins and Dimension Films want to remake a movie that's only five years old. The original remake of The Amityville Horror starring a bearded and, as always, charmingly snarky Ryan Reynolds grossed over $100 million at the box office. "We wanna blow off more stacks of cheddar!" the Weinsteins were not quoted saying, but were most likely thinking while oddly enough nibbling from a pungent wheel of cheese.Apparently a director is already in talks to develop the project. He's probably brainstorming in between commercial shoots for beer commercials and commercial shoots for soda commercials. No word on when the remake of the remake will get underway, or if it will ever, but I have a feeling the development of the remake of the remake of the remake will begin early next year. Cheddar, om nom nom! (via BloodyDisgusting)  

‘Daybreakers’ Trailer Has All the Elements of a Vampire Movie

Friday, November 27 by

In case you've been jonesing for a vampire movie, Daybreakers starring Ethan Hawke, Willem Defoe, and Sam Neill is here to satisfy your craving.  Oh, you're sick of vampires, you say?  Well they bring in sh*t buckets full of cash at the box office so you're going to have to deal.  At least the one's in this movie don't sweat glitter, or seep diamond dust. I don't know what the actual cause is of the sparkly vamps in Twilight, but I do know it's fruity.  The premise for Daybreaks goes as such: In the year 2019, vampires are now the dominant species on the planet with the remaining humans being farmed for blood.  But with the remaining blood supply dwindling, a vampire scientist (Ethan Hawke) finds himself siding with the human resistance. Sounds like another social commentary to me. Isn't it about time the world except homosexuals (vampires)? Daybreakers opens January 8th, 2010. Check out the trailer after the jump.
