“CHERRYBOMB” TRAILER SHOWS DARK SIDE OF HOGWARTS STUDENT

Monday, April 6 by

The Red-Band trailer for CherryBomb, the new film starring Harry Potter mainstay Rupert Grint, has hit the 'nets.  While the Potter films have gotten darker with each installment, this film kind of makes the whole Hogwarts experience look like Teletubbies.  Check out the trailer after the jump.  It's like a two-minute long ad for smoking cut to really cool Brit-Rock music.  If the Teletubbies smoked and partied to cool Brit-Rock music they'd make Barney look like Blue's Clues.

MICHAEL BAY “DOESN’T LIKE” FEMALE TRANSFORMER ENOUGH TO KILL HER

Monday, April 6 by

In an interview with MTV News, BOOM-bastic Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen director Michael Bay expressed his distaste for Arcee – a female autobot in the upcoming film – and then proceeded to coldly explain his hatred was enough to murder her.  You may remember Arcee from the animated Transformers: The Movie, where she transformed into a pink futuristic car.  In Fallen, she is represented as a pink motorcycle.  A very dead pink motorcycle.Watch Michael Bay's chillingly self-satisfied confession to the grizzly murder after the jump.[via io9.com]

“NAKED AMBITION” RED-BAND TRAILER

Monday, April 6 by

Today, the L.A. Times' Big Picture posted an article about the MPAA's fear of sex in movies, and their slapping of the relatively tame trailer for the R-Rated documentary Naked Ambition with a "Red-Band" honorific.  The article makes a great point about the MPAA's skewed view of objectionable content in films.  And you can read that article at The Big Picture.  If you came to see a trailer for a documentary about porn, then look no further than the jump.  You'll also find some bonus stills!

BON JOVI DOCUMENTARY TO ROCK TRIBECA

Monday, April 6 by

The Hollywood Reporter announced today that an unfinished cut of When we Were Beautiful, the new Phil Griffin documentary about Bon Jovi, will screen at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 29th (and a couple more times during the fest).  Read more about the film after the jump.

NEW TERMINATOR SALVATION TV SPOTS!

Monday, April 6 by

Warner brothers has started to air three new spots for Terminator Salvation.  Check out the first below, and then the other two after the jump.  I haven't seen any red flags yet.  Could this be McG's finest hour?  Actually I think it already is based on the accumulated four minutes of trailer and promo footage that's out there. 

FNL Recap: Underdogs

Monday, April 6 by

Welcome back from reality ladies and gentlemen, the Dillon Panthers and Friday Night Lights went back to basics this week, and reclaimed their crown for the best television series on the air right now. This last episode was a return to greatness for our beloved Panthers. Our return to the State finals tied everything together; it was Matt, Landry, and Riggins’ last game and everybody left it all on the field. Tyra, after many rewrites, finished her application essay for college, and her recent beau Landry finally played meaningful football, in the finals at that, albeit on special teams. Even though Lyla reconnected with Buddy, all was not well in the realm of family matters. The McCoys and the Taylors were at odds, because the Taylors were obligated to report them to Child Protective Services on account of their fight after the semifinal game. On top of this conflict, the Saracens were divided over Matt’s future as well; his grandmother was preventing him from going to Chicago for school, while his mother, Tami and Julie were encouraging him to pursue it further.

FOXFIRE MORNING NEWS

Sunday, April 5 by

Variety reports that a Fox News blogger has been fired due to his review of a pirated copy of XMen Origins: Wolverine. 20th Century Fox, the film's studio, called for the dismissal because viewing pirated material is a violation of copyrights. Since Fox News and the studio are essentially the same company, the blogger broke one of life's cardinal rules: Never bite the hand that feeds you.Another one of life's rules: No matter how friendly the man in the clownsuit seems, do not get into his van.Here is some more morning news and announcements.Rick Moranis ain't 'fraid of no ghosts!

GENE HACKMAN: GETTING BACK IN THE GAME

Sunday, April 5 by

  WHERE HAVE I BEEN? By Gene Hackman This morning I was sorting through some mail that had piled up and I came across a letter from a fan. In the letter, she asked a question that I’ve been getting a lot from various people. "Where have you been, Gene Hackman?" By now you’ve probably noticed my recent absence from movies and I guess that I owe you all an explanation. I wish that I could say that I’ve decided to spend my time painting or writing historical fiction. Or I wish that I could tell you that I’ve had it with the politics of Hollywood and have decided to return to my theater roots. But none of that is true. Fact of the matter is I’ve just been playing a lot of Xbox 360.

THE WOLVERINE LEAKED CLIP FOX DOESN’T WANT YOU TO SEE

Sunday, April 5 by

We decided not to report on the leaked Wolverine workprint because, well, any coverage would perpetuate thievery.  But we couldn't resist posting this in the end.  Enjoy.  I'm really impressed with the makeup in this one.  Definitely trumps X3. 

NEW TERMINATOR SALVATION IMAGE OF “SERENA”

Saturday, April 4 by

Courtesy of Latino Review, we have a new image from McG's Terminator: Salvation.  It's of Helena Bonham Carter's character named "Serena" (possibly a nod to the last Terminator flick). If you don't want to know what's behind the black bars, don't click the above image.  But if you're into the Terminator mythology, you're probably going to think it's cool. If you're just a pervy voyeur, you're probably going to be disappointed… unless… Wait!  Must refrain from joke about sex with robots… gah!  I think I just gave it away.  Well, you just…

JACKIE EARLE HALEY IS FREDDY KRUEGER?

Friday, April 3 by

This afternoon, BloodyDisgusting broke the news that actor Jackie Earle Haley is in final talks to play Freddy Krueger in Sam Bayer's update of A Nightmare on Elm Street, and that we can expect an official announcement as early as next week.  (Shooting begins at the end of this month in Chicago.) This is some inspired casting.  Haley has proven himself time and again in the twisted character roles.  No matter what camp you fall into with Watchmen, you can't deny Haley as Rorschach was the best part about the film.  And his turn as Ronnie the pedophile in Little Children is nothing short of brilliant.  Every time I do my impression of Ronnie masturbating in the car, my girlfriend cries.  So that should count for something.  Watch that clip after the jump!  Fast forward to 4:58 if you can't wait until the masturbating part.  (How often has that sentence been bandied about on the 'nets?
