NEW CLIPS FROM ‘THE IMAGINARIUM OF DOCTOR PARNASSUS’

Sunday, May 24 by

This morning, Slashfilm's Brendon Connelly posted three clips from Terry Gilliam's The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, which just screened at Cannes and wowed the critics, many of whom framed their reviews around this being Heath Ledger's final film.  The first clip features the recently departed actor donning a mask that gives me the creeps/flashbacks to Eyes Wide Shut and Amadeus, and wooing a small crowd of curious bystanders.  I couldn't help but notice a few tiny Joker-like nuances in the way Ledger moves in this scene.  Still hadn't shaken the clown when he shot this, I suppose. The other clips, which you can see after the jump, are a little more .  One features Christopher Plummer as the titular character, and a lot of cool SFX that's a little LOTR, a little Harry Potter, and a lot Gilliam.  The other features actress Lily Cole doing her best Lolita while Verne "Mini-Me" Troyer drives a horse-drawn carriage.  Not as adorable as one would think.  This is Gilliam, after all.  He could make the Muppet Babies off-putting.

‘SURROGATES’ TRAILER W/ BRUCE WILLIS, VING RHAMES & RADHA MITCHELL

Friday, May 22 by

Bruce Willis is back, bald and with a full head of hair! How is that possible, you ask? Well it’s easy when you’re playing a bald man plugged into a machine that allows you to control your thick haired carbon copy.  The trailer for the new sci-fi/action thriller Surrogates hit the 'nets today and it looks like a doozy of a concept.  Set in a futuristic world where humans live in isolation and interact through surrogate robots, a cop (Willis) is forced to leave his home for the first time in years in order to investigate the murders of others’ surrogates.  The film comes from director Jonathan Mostow, who also directed Terminator 3, U-571, and Breakdown starring Kurt Russell (awesome!).  Take a look at the trailer after the jump, let us know what you think – like whether or not you like Ving Rhames in dreadlocks.

BAZOOKA JOE MOVIE IN THE WORKS

Friday, May 22 by

Remember those non-amusing comic strips that came with that non-chewable gum you used to buy as a kid? Well, good news! Michael Eisner is bringing the adventures of Bazooka Joe to the big screen, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Every year thousands upon thousands of filmmakers struggle to get their work on screen and have their dreams crushed when they fail to do so. But for some reason, Bazooka Joe gets to be a movie. And it will probably be released in DIGITAL 3D.It's only a matter of time before we see something like this on the silver screen: Check out these other morning news pieces… Twilight star beats up fans. (Funny Or Die)Creature from Black Lagoon is now ragin' and rockin'. Frankenstein still amblin' and clobberin'. (Dread Central)First look at Airbender, a movie who's title sounds like fart slang. (/Film) Greatest TV Show Ever. (Holy Taco)Wayans Family Tree. (MTV)

10 GREAT WAR MOVIE QUOTES

Thursday, May 21 by

Well, Memorial Day is upon us: a time to reflect on all those who fought for our country.  Try to fit some time for that into your three-day weekend… maybe in between screenings of Terminator Salvation and Star Trek.  After all, war is, as the saying goes, hell… but war movie dialogue totally blows us away! (Oh yes we did!!) Yeah…watching guys get shot up into less grotesque versions of the "Real Housewives of New York City" is awesome, but some of the high caliber conversation from war flicks sticks with you longer than a Vietnam flashback. Here are some of our favorite lines from war flicks that have left the biggest scars on our memories…

DOWNLOAD ‘BROTHERS BLOOM’ COMMENTARY ON iTUNES

Thursday, May 21 by

It appears Rian Johnson, the mastermind behind Brick and The Brothers Bloom, has decided to record and make available a downloadable commentary podcast to coincide with the expansion of Brothers Bloom’s limited release.  With movie tickets costing the price of what a kidney goes for on the black market nowadays, I’m sure tons of people are really excited about forking over the price for two tickets to see the movie with and without commentary.  Then again, I saw Brick twice in theaters, so maybe Johnson’s filmmaking is just badass enough to convince me to do this.  Or maybe I’m just lonely enough to see a movie twice with an iPhone podcast as my only company.    Find the link to the commentary after the jump!

TERMINATOR SALVATION’S BRYCE DALLAS HOWARD

Thursday, May 21 by

Today's the big day… Judgment Day has happened… the Machines have Risen… but Salvation is on our doorsteps.  Despite a 34% score on RottenTomatoes (as of this post), Terminator Salvation, which opens today, will most likely pack 'em into theaters like a Harvester bagging meatsacks.  And Bryce Dallas Howard (above) is another reason to go see it.  Unless you're listening to Harry Knowles' scathing review, which states that all Bryce was did during the film was "open her eyes really wide." In the film, Bryce plays Kate Connor, the wife of John Connor – a role originated in Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, by Claire Danes.  And as you'll see from the picture above and the ones after the jump, if there's any actress whose baby blues we'd like to see widening repeatedly on screen, it's Ms. Howard.Narrow your eyes in the blinding beauty of Bryce photos after the jump.
