TEASER FOR MICHAEL MOORE’S AS-YET-UNTITLED ‘BAILOUT’ DOCUMENTARY

Saturday, June 13 by

Teaser for Michael Moores UNTITLED BAIL OUT DOCUMENTARY – Watch more Funny VideosThe new teaser for Michael Moore's Untitled Bailout Documentary has arrived, and it doesn't give too much away, other than Michael Moore's angry again.  "Angry Moore" is really evident here.  He breaks out his classic sarcastic Moore voice, bringing his pitch up an octave while gently coaxing the audience to bend over for the banks.  "This time it's personal" reads the text at the end of the trailer.  This time, I believe it.  Kudos to Moore's marketing team for borrowing the tagline from Jaws 4: The Revenge.

LINKIN PARK’S ‘NEW DIVIDE’ VIDEO FROM ‘TRANSFORMERS REVENGE OF THE FALLEN’

Friday, June 12 by

The new music video – or "clip" – for Linkin Park's "New Divide" from the Transformers Revenge of the Fallen soundtrack was released – or "dropped" – on myspace today.  You can check it out after the jump.  It has a few shots from the film that many of us haven't seen – or "peeped" – yet, including some shots of what looks like Bumblebee fighting Ravage. In traditional soundtrack music video fashion, the film moments are intercut with shots of the band performing.  And it's Linkin Park, so the whole thing's like a giant battle to see who can out-melodramatize the other.  Lyrics are also posted after the jump.  What they have to do with GIANT F**KING ROBOTS is anyone's guess.

MARCUS NISPEL TO DIRECT ‘CONAN’ UPDATE. NO MORE BRETT RATNER.

Friday, June 12 by

BY THE ANVIL OF CROM! Usually, news about a guy who’s made a career out of directing remakes is not very exciting; it’s kind of annoying.  The knock on them is obvious:  they're never as good as the source material, and they're usually flashy flicks that lack substance. That's what makes this piece of news so darned interesting.  It was announced that Marcus Nispel, the guy who remade both The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Friday the Thirteenth, is on board to direct a remake of Conan.  Yeah, it's a lackluster little bit of information but it's good news.  Why?  Because now we know Brett Ratner isn't touching the movie any more.

PETER JACKSON TO SHOOT EVERYTHING IN 3D NOW

Friday, June 12 by

In an interview with Marketsaw – a blog devoted entirely to 3D filmmaking – Steve Schklair, the CEO of 3ality Digital Systems claims that Lord of the Rings helmer Peter Jackson will be shooting all of his directorial efforts using 3ality's technologies.  You can read the whole article at Marketsaw.  Sites like ScreenRant suggest that Jackson's devotion to 3D from now on will help shift exhibitors over to the 3Dark Side, which they have been reluctant to do because of retrofitting costs and the lack of 3D movies.  Personally, I'm a fan of 3D technology, from the the way UP used it organically in the story to the stuff that's used shamelessly by films like My Bloody Valentine 3D.  Part of me wishes Drag Me to Hell had been in 3D.  Some of the film's shock moments are perfect for the third dimension. Here's hoping that Jackson considers going into his back catalogue and 3D-ifies flicks like Meet the Feebles and Dead Alive.  I can't think of a more visceral theatrical experience than an AIDs-ridden rabbit vomiting forth upon the audience in the movie theater and the audience in the film.  That's, like, sooooooo metaaaaaaaaa… Meet the Feebles Vomit – Watch more Funny Videos

KICKASS EVERYMAN FIGHT SUITS FROM FILM

Friday, June 12 by

In general, when it's time to kick some ass, it's time to kick some ass.  Forget what you're wearing and get ready to rumble. This philosophy has been adopted throughout the entire history of cinema, the most recent example being seen in last weekend's #1 film, The Hangover.  Above: Mr Chow (Ken Jeong) makes a balls-out attack on Phil (Bradley Cooper).  Chow's balls are fully out in the theatrical release. But what about other scenes, guys who find themselves fighting in outfits that strike us today as either ridiculous or insanely awesome, or most likely, both? Superheroes, of course, would be cheating, because we all know they almost always look nuts cleaning up the city in their plastic nipples and oversized codpieces.

‘THE WAY YOU DON’T DIE’ CLIP FROM ‘THE HURT LOCKER’ + 8 NEW IMAGES

Thursday, June 11 by

THE HURT LOCKER – The Way You Dont Die Clip – Watch more Movie TrailersIn the latest released clip from Summit's upcoming war flick about the military's bomb squad in the Middle East, Colonel Reed (David Morse) gets Staff Sgt. Wiliam James (Jeremy Renner) to open up about just how many bombs he's blown up working for the EOD.  I've seen the film and when put in the full context of the story, even this little dialogue piece is tense.  I kept thinking Renner's character was gonna get the sh*t chewed out of him by Morse for being a loose cannon.  Turns out Morse's character's a bit of a wildman himself, I guess. We also have eight new still images , which you can see after the jump!

‘CHOP SHOP’ SCENE FROM ‘TRANSFORMERS REVENGE OF THE FALLEN’ NOW AVAILABLE IN ENGLISH

Thursday, June 11 by

CHop Shop from REVENGE OF THE FALLEN – Watch more Movie Trailers This same scene has been available in German for about a day now and… I think I liked it better when I had no idea what 'Wheelie' was saying.  It's the first time the majority of us have heard the pesky little Decepticon's English-language voice and he comes off like some comedian working the room up in the Catskills.  I hope Revenge of the Fallen takes time to explain how some of the Transformers came to adopting regional colloquialisms and accents, unlike the first film.  I kept waiting to see the deleted scene from that one where Jazz crash lands on Earth and immediately devours every Wayans Brothers movie he can get his giant metal hands on.  Word up, Optimus!

STEPHEN SOMMERS NOT FIRED FROM ‘G.I. JOE’ MOVIE

Thursday, June 11 by

The interweb was aflurry all morning with rumors that GI Joe: Rise of Cobra director Stephen Sommers had been taken off the movie and locked out of the edit room.  The reason?  According to some, the film was testing the lowest a film from Paramount has ever tested.  And Paramount put out Britney Spears's Crossroads. Well, turns out rumoring is half the battle (G.I. JOOOOOE!!!), because Movieline.com reports – with 100% assurance, mind you – that the whole story is bullsh*t.  Read Movieline's investigative report here. I'm a fan of the original Mummy.  After that, I can't say I've been in love, infatuated, or even vaguely felt anything like an emotion toward Stephen Sommers's films.  In fact, I think I remember my therapist chastising me for "putting up a wall" when he asked me if he should go see Van Helsing opening weekend.  So it's not surprising that there were rumblings of Sommers being scrutinized for his approach to filming a beloved '80s property. 

DENZEL & TRAVOLTA CAREER TIMELINE

Thursday, June 11 by

This Friday, The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 opens and marks the first time two of cinema’s larger-than-life icons star opposite each other. Both born in 1954, John Travolta and Denzel Washington have had storied, if not tumultuous careers. We’ve decided to map out their careers like New York MTA maps train routes in the hopes it will shed some light on the box office success of 'Pelham.  Is their train right on time or did it just miss the station by a New York Minute?
