Tinseltown is a horrible, fickle mistress. A tarted-up fame junkie with flashbulb eyes and ashy elbows who is always on the hunt for the next big thing.

One day, you might find yourself seated at the best tables with no need for a reservation. The next, you’re nobody. A nothing. Fodder for tabloids to call fat or for bloggers to draw dicks on. Like these esteemed actresses who likely won’t get Oscar noms this year.

Blake Lively – Savages

She solidified herself as an actress to watch (this time for her acting) with her performance in The Town. However, her next foray into serious drama didn’t garner a fraction of the acclaim. Unless Amy Adams starts doing American Pie sequels, there’s no way we should expect Blake Lively to receive the Best Supporting Actress nod in 2012.

Nicole Kidman – The Paperboy

To the surprise of everyone who hasn’t seen a movie pre-2003, Nicole Kidman snagged nominations for both a SAG Award and a Golden Globe for her role in The Paperboy. Despite her total commitment to the slutty Southern character, the film itself is to blame here for her Oscar snub. The reasons are two-fold. For one, Zac Efron is in this movie. Two, she number ones on him. I can’t think of many award-winning movies in recent memory where characters pee on themselves or others. Except 127 Hours maybe.

Doona Bae – Cloud Atlas

She gave the bravest performance in the year’s most unjustifiably derided films. Doona Bae’s portrayal as a servant clone/sex slave turned revolutionary in 2144 Neo Seoul. Not only did her pain inspire future generations to fight for their civil rights, but it also inspired me to second-guess the hiring practices at Hooter’s restaurants.

Laura Linney – Hyde Park On The Hudson

We haven’t seen much of Laura Linney lately, outside of Downton Abbey introductions, and Hyde Park On The Hudson was her chance to come back. Not that the Academy will take notice with Anne Hathaway out there shaving her head while crying.

Helen Mirren – Hitchcock

I don’t know. Just seems Oscar-y, doesn’t it?

After offering the part to and getting shot down by Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson, Mia Waskiowska, Emma Stone, and Anne Hathaway (funny that there aren’t any black actresses on that list), the producers of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies have realized that Blake Lively was really their first choice all along, and they’re totally not just giving it to the biggest available name right now. It’s rumored she’s been offered the part but has yet to respond.

Lively has been flirting with the A-list for the past year or so, having gone “ugly” in The Town, cleverly disseminated nude pictures of herself to the masses (What the hell. It’s Friday. Here’s a link to the smoking-hot pics.), and jumped on board Oliver Stone‘s The Savages in her highest-profile role to date. Will this nascent project be the one that catapults her to superstardom? It’s hard to tell as this project has seemed to lose steam over the past year or so, but they could do a lot worse than Blake Lively. Ke$ha, for instance.

Lively would play Elizabeth, the star of the film, a Victorian young lady who enjoys impalin the walking dead as much as she does playing coy to Mr. Darcy.

While I don’t think Lively is a bad choice here, the selection doesn’t seem terribly inspired, as they are probably just going for the biggest name they can get. However, if attaching her gets production rolling on this film, good. Great. Splendid. She’s the best actress for the job, etc.

Now please start making the film.

Green Lantern may have failed to make enough money to justify its 200-million dollar budget (and that’s not including marketing costs), but that’s not stopping Warner Brothers from developing a sequel.

Apparently WB is looking for franchises to replace Harry Potter, the last installment of which is coming out soon. This despite a precipitous drop in second weekend box office gross for Green Lantern, dropping 66% in box office receipts from its premiere weekend to its second. That puts it in the same group as notorious blockbuster flop, 2003′s Hulk, which dropped 70% and spawned a complete reboot of the franchise. WB seems to have confidence in Green Lantern‘s possibilities as a sequel, though. Maybe Green Lantern 2 will have star Ryan Reynolds trapped in a box for two hours. I’d watch that!

David O. Russell is putting his newfound Oscar cred to good use. That is, he’s using it to meet chicks.

THR reports that Russell is “intensely screen-testing” Blake Lively, Olivia Wilde, Elizabeth Banks, Kirsten Dunst, Rachel McAdams, Rooney Mara, and Andrea Riseborough to star opposite Mark Wahlberg in The Silver Linings Playbook. In the film, Wahlberg plays a man looking for the silver linings in his life after checking out of a mental health facility. The highly-coveted role that these actresses are up for is that of a depressed woman who just bangs dudes like crazy after her husband passes. In other words, up yours, Mark Wahlberg.

Joel David Moore has an interesting look. He sort of resembles a computer whiz with links to the marijuana trade. Which is great for him because Oliver Stone just cast him to play a computer whiz with links to the marijuana trade in Savages.

The plot revolves around two drug dealers played by Aaron Johnson and Taylor Kitsch who share the banging rights of Blake Lively. When she is kidnapped by the Mexican cartel (headed by Salma Hayek naturally), they are forced to work for her freedom. John Travolta, Emile Hirsch, Benicio Del Toro, Uma Thurman, and Demian Bichir also star.

Filming begins later this year so hopefully Moore will be able to squeeze in a few more nerd roles before then. (THR)

The post Review: Green Lantern appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Green Lantern looks like a big cartoon, but it’s a really cool cartoon. What can you do when all the environments and most of the main characters are CGI? It’s bright, sharp and detailed (well, it won’t be bright if you see the 3D version).

The film opens with an explanation of the guardians and will power constructs. There’s still no other way to explain this crazy mythology than flat out exposition. A little more is explained as Hal Jordan (Ryan Reynolds) trains on Oa so he’s ready to fight the Parallax, a creature using fear as its power source.

New ‘Green Lantern’ Trailer Lays It All Out For You

The will power constructs are intricate and clever. That’s really the victory of creative screenwriting, to say “instead of just green energy blasts, what temporary devices could we use to have this guy beat that guy?” Even constructs as simple as swords are meaningful as an homage to the classical duel.

A thrilling air sequence spells out Hal’s personality. His rogue tactics are cool in a training exercise, since it’s hypothetical. Wouldn’t be so cool if real lives were at risk. It spells out all the conflicts between fearless Hal and by the books Carol Ferris (Blake Lively), but it’s a fun Bruckheimer style Top Gun sequence.

It’s simple fun. That’s okay, but we do like our superheroes to have a little metaphor. Jordan ultimately gets to the value of admitting fear, but it really stays on the surface of the whole will vs. fear debate. Maybe in the sequel. It’s more fun than Thor, because the constructs are just more fun to watch than big dudes hitting each other.

8 photosBlake Lively

I was worried that Green Lantern would be inaccessible since it’s all in space with aliens. If anything, the movie spends too much time on earth. There’s not much epic space battle at all. The rescues and battles on earth are fine but the “character” scenes sort of force contrived human moments in there. They want to have fun with the powers and be romantic, but it feels like screenplay template.

Maybe the biggest component that’s missing is that earth really has no say in this. Hal decides whether or not to join the guardians and the guardians debate sacrificing earth to Parallax, but earth never speaks up. Earth doesn’t even know what’s going on? They see a few disasters but that’s just a reaction shot while other forces control the plot of the film. Hal doesn’t even get to experience the superhero phenomenon, since nobody he rescues really comments on it.

So Green Lantern doesn’t make me a comic book fan, but as a “superhero saves the world” movie, it’s fun. Sinestro (Mark Strong) brings it, lending gravitas to the formula. Hector (Peter Sarsgaard) is the typical mad scientist with new power, but Sarsgaard makes him really weird and uncomfortable to watch. The film is a mixed bag, but the joyful spectacle wins out.

Blake Lively is Carol Ferris in Green Lantern. She’s the titular character’s love interest, meaning she’ll probably be kidnapped by the villian at some point. Or will she? There’s only one way to find out: Ask the one friend you know who actually goes to see Green Lantern.

A word from Blake: “Wanting to be an actor and wanting to be famous are different.”

The nude photos of actress Blake Lively that have been floating around the Internet are now being denounced as fakes. Of course, the denouncement is coming from Lively’s publicist, so take it for what it’s worth. But honestly, at this point, I’m surprised Lively’s camp is even bothering to comment. Are they worried that this could somehow hurt her career? It’s 2011. Real or fake, who gives a damn about some blurry cell phone pics of a naked blond starlet? In a world where HD pornography is freely available at the touch of a button, I, for one, do not.

Perhaps there was a time when a nude photo might have damaged an actress’s career. But any remnants of that period were swept away the day a shitty rapper named Ray Jay put his fear of herpes aside and took a dip in Kim Kardashian‘s squalid innards. To be fair, we can take the way-back machine even further, to 2003, when a bright-green Paris Hilton went down on a degenerate gambler for all the world to see. And as early as the late 90′s, Hep C poster child Pam Anderson was busy videotaping her self with different rock stars. Keep in mind, this was when Clinton was still in office, and most people were still using dial up modems and conventional phones. Two presidents, two wars, and a Star Wars Trilogy later, is it really news when some actress flashes her cans? Once the kids from the Disney Chanel (Vanessa Hudgens) are doing it, can we really call it shocking? Unless she is videotaped having a three way with Roman Polanski and Justin Bieber, color me unimpressed.

See The New ‘Green Lantern’ Trailer In Brightest Day, Etc.

If you didn’t know anything about Green Lantern, or just knew that he’s green and has a fancy ring, prepare to get schooled. The new Green Lantern trailer tells you everything you need to know to feel comfortable attending a showing. There’s also a bunch more footage that gets more impressive with each successive trailer. Ryan Reynolds looks like he’s wearing an actual suit now instead of something I colored on him in Mario Paint. I’m still not a huge fan of Mr. Lantern’s story in general, but this trailer does have me more excited about the film. If we see another before the film’s release, may I suggest focusing on Blake Lively? She went through a lot to color her hair and it’s going unrecognized.

It has been confirmed that Blake Lively will play a pretty cool chick in Oliver Stone‘s The Savages. The Most Desired Woman Of 2011 will play Ophelia, the free-spirited girlfriend of two Laguna Beach marijuana kings who gets herself and her magnificent breasts kidnapped by the Mexican cartel. Way to go. Aw hell, I can stay mad at them, err, I mean, her.

She beat out Olivia Wilde and Teresa Palmer for the role although I can totally see either of them dating Laguna Beach pot dealers. There was some question about whether or not she’d take this role or that of a really hot witch in Oz: The Great and Powerful. But in the end she decided she couldn’t pass up the chance to be screamed at by the director of Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps and U Turn. (Variety)

There’s a new TV spot for Green Lantern that would like to remind us how the movie is actually awesome and how much we should avoid that first trailer. There’s space and stuff now and the Lantern displaying gatling gun-producing powers that look like something out of The Mask. There’s also the dulcet timbre of Michael Clarke Duncan, who has loaned his voice to the reptilian bull dog-faced alien Kilowog. Which I’m sure he took as a compliment when offered the gig. Either that, or a casting agent got elbow dropped through a coffee table.

Oliver Stone has added a few big names to his marijuana drama The Savages. Blake Lively will officially become the stoner dream girl, the “joint” girlfriend of the film’s two heroes. See what I did back there? It was a pot reference. Meanwhile, Pulp Fiction stars John Travolta and Uma Thurman are doing the twist with Universal, as they’re in talks to play a weary DEA agent and Blake Lively‘s mom. Can you guess who would play who? I can’t I am so high right now.

The Savages is about two California potheads (Aaron Johnson and Taylor Kitsch), whose communal girl-pool Ophelia (Lively) gets kidnapped by a badass Mexican drug cartel, forcing the two top dealers to work for them. And that’s why you shouldn’t do drugs, you guys. Cause bad guys played by Salma Hayek and Benicio Del Toro will come after you and the hot girl you share with your pal. You’ve been warned.

The Savages begins production this July. (Deadline)

What young girl doesn’t dream of getting passed around like a doobie between two stoners? Actress Blake Lively must be intrigued by the prospect, because she’s the current front-runner to play the female lead, Ophelia, in Oliver Stone‘s new drama, The Savages.

The film is about two potheads in Laguna Beach who might ultimately be played by Aaron Johnson and Taylor Kitsch. A badass Mexican drug cartel kidnaps Ophelia, forcing the two top dealers to work for them. My understanding is that nobody cries, “mellow out man,” and Neil Patrick Harris remains uninvolved.

Stone’s first-first choice for Ophelia was Jennifer Lawrence, who chose to play Katniss in The Hunger Games instead, which is thrilling news if you’re anxiously awaiting the next Twilight-y series. However, Stone might not get his second choice either, because Lively is also in talks to star as Glinda the Good Witch in Sam Raimi‘s Oz: The Great and Powerful. Will he have to “settle” for plain ol’ Olivia Wilde or Teresa Palmer?

Man, all this casting talk is making me tense. *Takes Bong Hit* (Variety)

The post Lively, Palmer, and Cornish Are Oliver Stone’s Fallbacks For ‘The Savages’. Must Be Nice. appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
Since the most desirable female name in young Hollywood (Jennifer Lawrence) has split from The Savages to run to Hunger Games, director Oliver Stone, being the pragmatist that he is, has reached out to the next three most popular actresses on the planet, per Deadline and Variety reports.

Falling back onto Abbie Cornish, Blake Lively and Teresa Palmer should work out just fine as those are high-profile names for what’s becoming a very high-profile project. All three actresses are reportedly reading for the part of O, the girlfriend of two pot dealers who gets kidnapped and held for ransom on account of their shady behavior. Aaron Johnson and Taylor Kitsch have been cast as the two boyfriends, with Benicio del Toro and possibly Selma Hayek signing on to play principals from the rival drug cartel.

No single frontrunner for the desired role of O has been stated. In fact, it’s likely that this trio of actresses is not even exhaustive, as Deadline is getting into the mix and saying that they hear Stone is inclined to handpick at unknown for the part.

In summation, the part of O definitely won’t be played by Jennifer Lawrence. It might be played by Abbie Cornish, Teresa Palmer, or Blake Lively. Or another well-known young actress. Or it could be played by someone we’ve never heard of.

While this sounds like a bit of a mess, it underlines the fact that The Savages has enough weight behind it that it can do what it damn well pleases at this point, so it will be interesting to see which direction the never-predictable Oliver Stone takes this project. Stay tuned, I guess.

The post Juliette Lewis Cast To Type In ‘Hick’, Also ‘A Single Shot’ appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Juliette Lewis is carving out a bit of a niche for herself in smaller independent films like last year’s Conviction. And while it hurts me to report that A-list stardom might not be in Lewis’ future, I’m a professional, so I will press on. She’s been cast in the indie meth-drama Hick, presumably as a hick. Her fellow hicks in the hick-pic will be Chloe Moretz, Eddie Redmayne and Blake Lively.

The lovely and talented Ms. Lewis has also been cast in A Single Shot with Alessandro Nivola and William H. Macy. Here’s a plot synopsis:

A Single Shot follows a man who, while on a deer-poaching expedition, accidentally shoots and kills a woman. While the man is trying to cover up the misdeed, he comes across a sack of money and a killer who’s after it.”

That sounds pretty cool. I hope Juliette Lewis isn’t playing the woman who gets shot! (via Collider)

Hollyweird denizen Blake Lively (the upcoming Green Lantern, The Town) has announced what her next project will be: An adaptation of the Andrea Portes novel Hick. She said ““I play a mother of a thirteen year-old…a southern woman who is also a meth addict.” If Ms. Lively cared about appealing to Real Americans she probably would have phrased that a little more softly- maybe the thirteen year-old is a “meth enthusiast” or something.

Anyway, her part was originally supposed to be played by Kirsten Dunst, but this has apparently fallen through for whatever reason. Maybe the producers decided it was time to cast someone from the current wave of superhero blockbusters, as opposed to Dunst who’s part of the old guard. (via The Playlist)

Taylor Lautner has recently signed on to star in eight hundred and forty seven upcoming films, including Incarceron, a strange but interesting sounding young adult lit adaptation about Lautner romancing the daughter of a warden on a prison planet. Based on a popular YA novel by Catherine Fisher, the film is set up at Fox 2000, and three very high profile young actresses are being eyed to play opposite the walking six pack Lautner. Jennifer Lawrence, Blake Lively, and Emma Watson are all in contention for roles in the project, however there will have to be more in it for them than just a paycheck and the opportunity to act opposite a Twilight star, because all three of their careers are taking off at the moment.

In addition to Incarceron, Lautner has also recently attached himself to an untitled spy thriller at New Regency that’s being touted as a youth oriented Bourne Identity. The film is said to be based on the life of Julal Aviv, the Israeli-America security consultant. Lautner’s got a difficult life these days, what with splitting his time between beautiful women and spy heroics has to be tiring. Let’s hope he finds some time to relax with his favorite hobby: running shirtless through woods in cutoff denim shorts. (The Playlist)

The Lonely Island is back with another SNL Digital Short, and like mature, grown men, they’re boasting about their sexual conquests in song form. They always manage to churn out a catchy beat with a glossy, rap cliché-riddled music video. Andy Samberg and Jorma Taccone take the verses this time around with Akon handling the infectious hook. If you look hard you can catch Akiva Schaffer, the third Lonely Island member, giving the the guys a pedicure. Let’s all scream this groove from the rooftops next time we’re lucky enough to lay with a girl, in the biblical sense.

Warner Bros. has dropped the trailer for The Green Lantern! …With Espanol subtitles. The version without the funny words at the bottom of the screen will be released later tonight. In the film directed by Martin Campbell (Casino Royale), Ryan Reynolds plays a test pilot who receives a ring from a dying alien that lets him create anything he wants with green energy. He then gets cocky, but soon learns that he shouldn’t get so cocky. Blake Lively looks hot and Peter Sarsgaard‘s head is huge because he’s evil. That about cover it? **Returns to sudoku puzzle**

Christopher Nolan is getting actresses lined up in a pretty little row for The Dark Knight Rises casting. Doesn’t sound like Charlize and Vera are in the mix anymore, unless this is some kind of elaborate rouse, and if that’s the case, Nolan **shakes angry fist** The director will meet for two female lead roles, one a love interest for Bruce Wayne, the other a villain (who will hopefully wear a tight leather outfit). The actresses looking to impress Nolan are Blake Lively, Natalie Portman, Keira Knightley, Naomi Watts, Rachel Weisz, and Anne Hathaway. Pssst! Ladies. I hear he likes Vegemite sandwiches. And cleavage. Bring both just in case. (Deadline)

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)

It’s still about a guy who finds a ring. Why am I posting this? I think the more important question is why am I not at a barbeque?? Let’s have those two questions answer one another.

FULL SYNOPSIS AND CAST AND CREW DETAILS AFTER THE JUMP…

‘Bringing the enduringly popular superhero to the big screen for the first time, “Green Lantern” stars Ryan Reynolds (“X-Men Origins: Wolverine”) in the title role, under the direction of Martin Campbell (“Casino Royale”).

 In a universe as vast as it is mysterious, a small but powerful force has existed for centuries. Protectors of peace and justice, they are called the Green Lantern Corps. A brotherhood of warriors sworn to keep intergalactic order, each Green Lantern wears a ring that grants him superpowers. But when a new enemy called Parallax threatens to destroy the balance of power in the Universe, their fate and the fate of Earth lie in the hands of their newest recruit, the first human ever selected: Hal Jordan.

Hal is a gifted and cocky test pilot, but the Green Lanterns have little respect for humans, who have never harnessed the infinite powers of the ring before. But Hal is clearly the missing piece to the puzzle, and along with his determination and willpower, he has one thing no member of the Corps has ever had: humanity. With the encouragement of fellow pilot and childhood sweetheart Carol Ferris (Blake Lively), if Hal can quickly master his new powers and find the courage to overcome his fears, he may prove to be not only the key to defeating Parallax…he will become the greatest Green Lantern of all.

Campbell directs “Green Lantern” from a screenplay by Greg Berlanti & Michael Green & Marc Guggenheim and Michael Goldenberg, story by Greg Berlanti & Michael Green & Marc Guggenheim, based upon characters appearing in comic books published by DC Comics.

The film also stars Blake Lively (upcoming “The Town,” TV’s “Gossip Girl”) as the spirited Carol Ferris, a test pilot and the heir apparent to her father’s aviation company; Peter Sarsgaard (“An Education,” “Flightplan”) as scientist Dr. Hector Hammond; Mark Strong (“Sherlock Holmes”) as Sinestro, Jordan’s powerful mentor in the Green Lantern Corps; Jay O. Sanders (“Revolutionary Road”) as Carl Ferris, Carol’s aircraft designer dad; Temuera Morrison (“Star Wars” Episodes II and III) as Abin Sur, Jordan’s alien predecessor; Taika Waititi (TV’s “The Flight of the Conchords”) as flight navigator Tom Kalmaku, Hal’s good friend and confidante; Academy Award® nominee Angela Bassett (“What’s Love Got to Do with It”) as enigmatic government scientist Amanda Waller; and Academy Award® winner Tim Robbins (“Mystic River”) as Hector’s influential father, Senator Robert Hammond.

The film is being produced by Donald De Line (“The Italian Job”) and Greg Berlanti (upcoming “Life As We Know It”). Herbert W. Gains and Andrew Haas serve as executive producers. Geoff Johns and Lucienne Papon are co-producing.

The film’s behind-the-scenes creative team is led by a number of Academy Award® winners, including director of photography Dion Beebe (“Memoirs of a Geisha”), production designer Grant Major (“The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King”), and costume designer Ngila Dickson (“The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King”), as well as Oscar®-nominated editor and longtime Campbell collaborator, Stuart Baird (“Gorillas in the Mist,” “Superman”). The film’s visual effects are being overseen by Oscar®-nominee Kent Houston (“The Adventures of Baron Von Munchausen,” “Casino Royale”).

The film is currently scheduled for release in 3D and 2D on June 17, 2011. “Green Lantern” will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company. ‘
