  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.

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.

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…

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?

We’ve all been there. Minding our own business, wolfing down our Raisinets and gulping down our 50 oz. sodas before the previews even begin. Bladders be damned.  Then the  curtains go up, the lights go down, and you’re left alone in hopes of seeing Olga Kurylenko toting a machine gun and posing in front of an explosion.  (You read it in a review somewhere.)But no, there are vermin afoot in the theater.  And they have plans against you and Olga, plans that involve loudly smacking Sour Patch Kids or forgetting to turn off their cell phone after the umpteenth on-screen reminder.  They come in a wide variety, but there's one thing in common: nothing would be more satisfying than standing up and dumping your soda all over their head (what's left of it, anyway). Like the picture says, why not?Screenjunkies presents… THE 9 MOST OBNOXIOUS MOVIE WATCHERS!9.  THE FREQUENT URINATORS

The upcoming May issue of Vanity fair features some new portraits of the Inglourious Basterds cast, in "glourious" makeup and wardrobe from Tarantino's WWII opus.  Here's one of Ms. Diane Kruger as her character, the smoking German screen actress Bridget von Hammersmark.  I can't tell if she's trying to read your mind in the photo or if she's feeling an oncoming low-grade migraine.  Here are some more photos.  Click on the thumbs to enlarge, soldier!

Save FEARnet!!!!

Friday, April 3 by

Courtesy of So, apparently Time-Warner and Bright House have egregiously dropped FEARnet from their cable line-ups.  If you're a subscriber to these services, you don't have to put on a mask and scare them into bringing FEARnet back.  You can, but you'll probably get arrested or prosecuted, which is something monsters and serial killers never seem to consider.  The responsible thing to do is to call your cable operator to convince them to bring FEARnet back.  If you dial 1-877-FEAR-247, they'll connect you with your cable operator and you can let them know you want FEARnet (And be aware that for some customers, FEARnet is available on AT&T U-Verse and Verizon Fios). Feel free to breathe heavily on the line and tell Big Cable you're watching them… then slip back into your normal voice and sternly mention that you won't keep watching unless they bring FEARnet back.  Mwahahahaha… And check out the list of upcoming titles on FEARnet that Time-Warner is currently missing out on… after the jump.

Marisa Tomei took her stripper role pretty seriously in The Wrestler and ended up with a bunch of award nominations.  Unfortunately for Jessica Biel, who usually makes good decisions, her turn around the silver pole is going to start and finish on DVD.  Powder Blue, the new film from Timothy Linh Bui (who last directed Green Dragon with Patrick Swayze and Forrest Whitaker… eight years ago) is coming out soon, and "Access Hollywood" is trying their best to spin it as high art. But it comes off pretty clumsily, like that time a stripper in Vancouver accidentally kicked me in the face as I happened to be passing the stage during her big finish.  There's nothing worse than ending a choreographed seduction with an apology.  Hopefully no one will be apologizing for Powder Blue.  [Courtesy of The Playlist] Here's the rest of the news.  You can see the Powder Blue Trailer after the jump!
