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?

Thursday, June 11 by

While talking with HitFix, Nicolas Cage eschewed the rumors that he hired a Voodoo Priestess to remove a curse from the set of Sorcerer's Apprentice. Of course he didn't hire a voodoo woman to remove a curse from his set. He hired her because she has the best weed.Check out these other morning headlines… Just because Tony Kaye wants to direct Mickey Rourke's script doesn't mean that Tony Kaye will get to direct Mickey Rourke's script.

Martin Scorsese's newest film, Shutter Island, a drama set in an insane asylum got a new trailer today and… well… it looks suitably insane.  Some may say it's off-the-hook insane.  Those people would possibly be using a combination of hyperbole and street slang.  Check out the trailer after the jump and see star Leonardo DiCaprio descend into the deepest, darkest bowels of madness, where even Michelle Williams manages to still look really hot.

VASSUP?! NEW ‘TRANSFORMERS REVENGE OF DER FALLEN’ CLIPS… IN GERMAN!

Wednesday, June 10 by

I want so badly for the German dub to refer to Optimus Prime as David Hasselbot. Two new clips from Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen just surfaced on the 'nets today, and you're in for some real spoilers, if you speak German.  Otherwise, it's just a lot of robot carnage.  I hate missing all the nuances in Michael Bay films… Check out this clip, where Tyrese says, with great gravitas, "Oh, nein!" as the Decepticon known as Demolishor shows off how accurate Transformers are with their etymology.  I can't help but imagine if Will Smith were reacting to this, he would have chimed in with an "Awww HELL nein!" German TRANSFORMERS REVENGE OF THE FALLEN Clip – Watch more Funny Videos After the jump, watch another clip with Shia Labeouf and Megan Fox attempting to deal with a pesky little bugger named Wheelie.  Also in German.

COMMANDO GETTING A REMAKE?

Wednesday, June 10 by

Remember when I said they'd make a Commando sequel before they'd reboot the film?  I lied.  Actually, I never said anything about anything.  But the rumors have started flooding in, and Slashfilm has found several instances of corroborating evidence that indeed, a Commando sequel just might be in development… and that it might have a star already willing to take up the John Matrix mantle. The trail of clues starts in Australia, where, according to JoBlo, there's an article in a magazine called RCI that simply states a remake is being developed. Okay.  But what of it?  I heard Fox just optioned the remake of Tom Rothman's dream he had last night, a dream that was essentially a reënvisioning of Garfield 2. But there's more.  CineFools.com also has picked up on the possibility that Dwayne Johnson is attached to the film already.  I don't know how I feel about this.  I think I have to meditate on it by watching the GREATEST opening credits sequence of all time… from the original Commando.  You can watch it, too, after the jump.
