Stop and think about the astronauts the next time you launch your debris into space.
Further proof that space sucks.
Which director will Disney set sail with? Hey, that pun kinda works with the visual themes of the movie. Great.
There’s going to be egg on your face, ‘Hubble 3D’.
Having already conquered the skies, the battlefield, the deep south, Las Vegas, and the bedroom of every woman he has ever desired, there is only one place left for George Clooney to go: Outer effing space. Ah crap, he’s been there too.
Man, Alfonso Cuaron is having a bitch of a time finding someone to star in his Gravity movie. Angelina passed on it twice, Scarlett Johannson and Blake Lively were rumored to be in contention, and then it was announced that Natalie Portman was in talks for the role. Well, she passed. Now Universal is trying their damndest to woo Sandra Bullock for the part. If you ask me, Bullock should pass as well. She doesn't need to be caught in the center of a widely-publicized story about how she was second banana to a few younger women. That's so last year.
If Bullock does indeed pass, they should just go with Olivia Munn. She's already got the helmet and everything.
Alfonso Cuaron and Warner Bros have had a hard time finding a leading lady to anchor Gravity after Angelina Jolie has declared herself anti-Gravity twice. A slew of actresses including Rebecca Hall, Naomi Watts, Sandra Bullock, Marion Cottilard, Blake Lively, Sienna Miller, Abbie Cornish, Scarlett Johannson, Olivia Wilde, and Carey Mulligan have been approached for the role, but none have agreed to float at zero G's in a room full of Teamsters. Now, there's news that Natalie Portman may be buying a box of Dramamine.
A firm offer has gone out to the actress after early buzz about Black Swan has her on track for an Oscar. The belief is that if she can handle that challenging role, she's more than capable of carrying the unofficial Lost In Space sequel. (THR)
It was rumored last week that Blake Lively was making a play for the role of sexy astronaut in Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity. However, it's been expected that role was Scarlett Johansson's for the taking. Well, now it's official that both ladies are pushing for the part, with reports that they both have tested for the role.
Will this create a rift between the two? Will that rift involve wrestling?? Hopefully. We'll let you know if and when Pay-Per-View tickets for the event go on sale. Gravity is said to be a really ambitious, experimental film that would require a lot from whichever actress lands the part. Neither Johansson or Lively have carried a film of this magnitude to date, but both are ready to step up. Personally, I'm really torn. Either would be super-convincing as an astronaut. (THR)
Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity may have lost Angelina Jolie, but it now looks like Scarlett Johansson will fill her ridiculously hot shoes. Bleeding Cool reports that Johansson has verbally agreed to star in the film with her Iron Man 2 co-star Robert Downey Jr..
Johansson's role in Iron Man 2 didn't amount to much beyond the trailer, so don't go thinking she and RDJ are the next Bogart and Bacall. This could all be talk, but that's no reason to poo-poo the idea. Please put any negativity aside for a moment or two and imagine Scarlett at zero G's. That's something we could all have if we wish together. We can do this!!
