NEW CLIPS FROM PIXAR’S “UP” WILL ENDEAR THE CRAP OUT OF YOU

Sunday, March 29 by

Saw the 3-D trailer for this play in front of Monsters vs. Aliens this weekend.  Even without the 3-D, Up looks multi-dimensional.  See, that's what I'd be saying if I were brainstorming in a marketing meeting.  But since I'm sitting at home in my boxers typing this, I'm just going to say that I can't wait for Up in the same way I can't wait to take a shower.  And I reek of last night's indiscretions.  You don't have to wait until I shower to watch the ALL NEW CLIPS of Up. After the jump!

GHOSTBUSTERS 3 WILL FEATURE ORIGINAL CAST, NEW RECRUITS TOO

Saturday, March 28 by

In a conversation with MTV about his upcoming Year One, writer-director Harold Ramis let loose some ectoplasmic bites of information on what we can expect from the new Ghostbusters movie.  According to Ramis:"[Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and all the other core members from the original] are going to be in it in different kinds of roles," Ramis said. "We're going to be the sage mentors. There are going to be young Ghostbusters."No announcements as to who those apprentices will be, but MTV surmised that with Judd Apatow producing, young comic stars like Seth Rogen and Paul Rudd could take part. 

SPIDER-MAN: THE COMIC BOOK OF THE MUSICAL

Friday, March 27 by

Julie Taymor, the director of the $40 million Spider-Man Broadway show, Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark is keeping mum about the production, but is telling the press to not call it a musical, and to instead refer to it as "a circus rock n' roll drama.  Whatever.  It has music and lyrics by U2, is being directed by the same person behind Broadway's The Lion King, and is being shown in a Broadway theater.  It's a musical.  But the big question remains.  WHO WILL PLAY SPIDER-MAN?  click to enlarge comic page.

Padma Lakshmi Has Dry Sex With Hardee’s Cheesburger

Friday, March 27 by

Padma Lakshmi, she of TV's Top Chef and Salman Rusdie-marrying fame, has apparently become the spokesmodel for Hardee's Bacon Western Thickburger, which is going to make a lot of men happy and a lot of normal women hate themselves more than they already do.  In her new commercial, Padma sits on the stoop of an NYC brownstone and proceeds to eat the beefy burger in ways that would make a a devout Hindu eunuch sport wood. See the full commercial – and more pics of Padma – after the jump.  And if you're a normal woman hating yourself right now, don't feel too bad.  I'm sure Padma had her seven personal trainers with spit buckets standing just off-camera for the entire shoot.

30 Rock Recap: Apollo, Apollo

Friday, March 27 by

This episode begins with Liz unpacking her new running shoes. Jack calls Liz and tells her she is yet to RSVP to his 50th birthday party. Meanwhile, on television, Tracy is announcing to the world that it is his dream to go into space. He will finance the trip if anyone is willing to shoot him into space. Liz has to deal with this, pronto. Dennis Duffy suddenly bursts into Liz’s apartment and tells her that he is going through a 12 step program. He is a recovering sex addict. He is at step nine, the step where he needs to apologize to everybody he has wronged. Side note: For all you Seinfeld fans, you know step nine. Dennis apologizes to Liz for sleeping with her, thus subjecting her to his web of treachery. Liz doesn’t care, she just wants Dennis out of the room. Liz asks Jack if he knows about Tracy trying to get into space. Jack says he has a google alert for everything titled “Tracy Jordan ridiculous disaster”. They have to stop him.

NEW ANGELS AND DEMONS TV SPOT

Friday, March 27 by

A new TV spot for Angels & Demons, the follow-up film for Ron Howard and his Da Vinci code crew, is up on the 'nets.  Admittedly, this is shaping up to be more exciting than its cinematic predecessor.  Pretty action-packed stuff.  I'm mostly just glad that stories about the Catholic church's coverups of indiscretions are straying from the tired molestation angle and getting back to the mass murder thing . Check out the clip after the jump.
