Exploding Actresses is wonderful. It takes cinema’s classic scenes and splices in the outtakes in which the actress’s heads exploded.

I think it’s safe to say that the dueling Snow White projects are no longer equally matched. Last week we all rocked out to the action-heavy preview of Snow White and the Huntsman, and today we have our first look at Tarsem Singh’s Mirror, Mirror. Ouch. Whereas one went for pulse-pounding action and CGI sorcery, the other aimed for goddamn ridiculous.

Far too much of the trailer focuses on Julia Roberts and her hacky Catskills kvetching routine. She comes off more like Woody Allen than she does an evil monarch. Not that the dwarfs are any better. Actual exchange of dialogue upon meeting Snow White: “Snow White? Snow Who? Snow Way!”

I just don’t get it. Julia Roberts. Corny jokes. Fabulous outfits. Nathan Lane. Are they intending on bringing this to Broadway?

‘Flatliners’ Was Apparently Just Begging For A Remake http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/flatliners-was-apparently-just-begging-for-a-remake/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/flatliners-was-apparently-just-begging-for-a-remake/#comments Fri, 26 Aug 2011 22:32:12 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=226133 It's not zombies, but it is dead people coming back to life. Wait. How is that not zombies?

The 1990 bratpack showcase Flatliners has been grabbed by Columbia Pictures and will be squeezed and loved by the studio, much as Lenny squeezed and loved the rabbit in Of Mice and Men. The original starred Kiefer Sutherland, Julia Roberts, Kevin Bacon, William Baldwin and Oliver Platt, so it’s pretty obvious that the new one will star Tom Hardy, Jennifer Lawrence, Alex Pettyfer, Penn Badgely, and…Oliver Platt.

The film focuses on a reckless medical student who conducts an experiment on his friends, “killing” them, then bringing them back to life shortly thereafter. However, after a while, they realize that they’re bringing back company from the other side.

The studio is getting Source Code writer Ben Ripley to write the screenplay. While no director or cast has been announced, a producer of the original, Laurence Mark, is back for round two on the remake.

It’s an innocuous enough film that’s got a premise that’s more interesting than much of the stuff coming out today, remake, or not. But will it take the audience on a journey the same way Battleship or Transformers 3 did? Only time will tell.

The post Weekend Box Office Report: America Loves ‘Transformers’* appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
Independence Day Weekend is a great time for barbecue, fireworks, and going to the movies. And this year, enough people worldwide went to see Transformers: Dark of the Moon to make it the third-best worldwide opening of all time, grossing a transformative (sorry) $372 million.

Did Michael Bay Use The Same Incomprehensible Footage In Two Movies?

Now, for the bad news: Here in the US of A, Transformers: Dark of the Moon actually grossed less than its predecessor, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen – it fell short of the earlier film’s $108 million gross by more than $10 million. Still, don’t feel too bad for Michael Bay and company – the third Transformers is still expected to break the Independence Day weekend record held by Spider-Man 2 by the time all the numbers for today roll in, recycled footage be damned. God bless America.

Uh, apparently there was another movie that opened this weekend too. It’s called Larry Crowne, a romantic comedy directed by up-and-comer Tom Hanks, who’s probably going to have a little trouble getting work after its paltry $14 million-dollar opening weekend. Maybe next time, kid. (The Playlist)

The post Review: Larry Crowne appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
I was all set to hate Larry Crowne. I thought it was trying to be a highbrow Billy Madison only it wouldn’t really have the balls to be that. It would have to be important and poignant, right? No, it actually is a highbrow Billy Madison! This is Hanks’ return to wacky comedies like Turner & Hooch!

Larry Crowne (Tom Hanks) gets fired from U-Mart. He can’t get a good job since he skipped college to join the Navy, so he goes back to community college. Mercy Tainot (Julia Roberts) teaches his secondary level speech course so he learns to come out of his shell, along with the help of all his wacky classmates.

New 'Larry Crowne' Trailer Is Like A More Serious 'Back To School'

I’ll admit, the first impression is not good. It already looks bad on paper and even the first act just makes you defensive, like this movie’s going to annoy you with quirk. Damned if the quirk wasn’t genuine though. I know a lot of my colleagues hated it. Maybe they went to the bathroom during the part where it wins you over so they sat through the rest thinking it was still annoying.

Every oral report Tainot assigns is basically a sketch comedy montage. The characters do the rest. Gugu Mbatha-Raw is so adorable you forgive her having to play Talia as one dimensionally sassy. Talia’s so perky she names Larry Lance and gives him a new wardrobe. Talia’s biker boyfriend Dell Gordo (Wilmer Valderrama) snaps his fingers like West Side Story. Steve Dibiasi (Rami Malek) thinks clairvoyant is someone’s name. Dave Mack (Malcolm Barrett) always gives the funniest reports. His Star Trek fandom manages to be funny even though we’ve seen that joke before. It’s the context and sincerity.

Roberts gives her best performance in a decade. She embraces the bitter, burnt out professor, putting real character into Mercy’s dirty looks. Bryan Cranston infuses so much character into her husband Dean, three scenes are all he needs. Hanks plays it really goofy, slow talking and bumbling on his scooter.

I’ve been waiting for a movie to go loose with its plot and just focus on the experience. We all know the same old structure. Larry’s going to get together with Mercy, you don’t need to construct an Inception plot to convince us that it works out. Larry Crowne focuses on the individual moments. I know, Tree of Life did that too, but that was about an abusive father and this is about a middle-aged dude going back to college.

I think Larry Crowne captures the nostalgia Super 8 failed to. Larry’s nostalgia isn’t for early childhood, it’s for the college phase of starting one’s adult life. So Larry can’t repeat elementary school but they can cram all those random whimsical encounters into a young adult setting.

Seems weird that Tom Hanks would want to target a new trailer for Larry Crowne directly at Trekkies, but whatever. To each their own.

The new trailer is very similar to the previous one. Middle-aged nerdy guy gets fired from the box factory, enrolls in college, bangs hot teacher. It’s kind of like Back To School without the awesome parts. This time around, George Takei chews the scenery as an economics professor. Here’s hoping he goes all Kinison and has a screaming fit. And then Cedric the Entertainer says, “Damn!” Please take note Hollywood, this is the closest that Cedric the Entertainer should be to a Back To School remake.

The Great Snow White Race continues. Relativity recently bumped their untitled Snow White project’s release date to March 16, 2012, months ahead of Universal’s Snow White and The Huntsman bow on June 1, 2012. Now Relativity is pulling ahead by doing a major casting blitz, hiring 7 bros to play 7 dwarves. Where are your dwarves, Kristen Stewart? Yeah, that’s what I thought.

Armie HammerJulia Roberts and Lily Collins will be joined in the cast by Jordan Prentice (Harold & Kumar), Joey Gnoffo (Pirates of the Caribbean), Danny Woodburn (Watchmen), Ronald Lee Clark (Epic Movie), Sebastian Saraceno (Bedtime Stories) and Mark Povinelli (Water for Elephants). I like that they’re using actual little people, as opposed to camera tricks, wardrobe tricks or f*cking CGI. However, was Peter Dinklage at least called?

Michael Lerner and Mare Winningham have also landed parts in the film. (Deadline)

Hollywood executives and internet commenters have something in common: The urge to shout “first!” So it is with the filmmakers at Universal behind Snow White and the Huntsman, who have moved their movie’s release date up six months, putting it a few weeks before the now-untitled Snow White movie that used to be called Brothers Grimm: Snow White, coming out June 29th, 2012.

In case you haven’t committed the myriad Snow White movies to memory, Snow White and the Huntsman is the one with Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth as the titular characters, and Charlize Theron as the evil queen. The other movie, from Relativity Media, stars Julia Roberts, Lily Collins, and Armie Hammer. It’s not known if Relativity plans to respond by moving ITS movie up to before Snow White and the Huntsman, but I’m hoping that this race continues to the point where they attempt to beam the movies back in time. I guess we’d know now if they did that, though. (The Hollywood Reporter)

Here’s some news that will make the not-Nathan Lane Nathan Lane wish that he were Nathan Lane. Ahem. Nathan Lane is in talks to join Tarsem Singh‘s adaptation of Brothers Grimm: Snow White.

The film is already slated to star Armie Hammer, Julia Roberts, and Lily Collins. In the type of role that normally goes to Stanley Tucci, Lane will play the main servant to Roberts’ Evil Queen.  He’s reported to be loyal to her out of fear, so expect a lot of humble hunching over and skittering backwards out of the room. That’s textbook royal servant behavior. That and laying across puddles so the Monarch needn’t dampen their precious feet. (THR)

Casting news for Th Brothers Grimm: Snow White, which is the Snow White movie with Julia Roberts and Armie Hammer, has been conspicuously lacking information about who would actually play the titular character of Snow White. It turns out we should have looked at the “Phil Collins connection” that runs through so many of the mysteries in today’s world. His daughter, Lily Collins, is the lucky girl who now gets to be the subject of countless clever puns involving the phrase “lily white.” This isn’t her first journey into the world of acting though – she was previously Sandra Bullock‘s daughter in The Blind Side.

Collins is also appearing in Priest and John Singleton‘s Abduction. It’s a shame there’s no role for Phil, unless … are there going to be dwarfs in this version? (via Deadline)

You probably know Armie Hammer as the gifted actor who played not one, but both of the Winklevoss twins in David Fincher‘s The Social Network. How gifted? He’s apparently also able to take both of his bodies and merge into one in order to play fairy tale princes, as we now know he is in Th Brothers Grimm: Snow White, one of three Snow White movies currently in development. You might say they’re triplets, if triplets were born separately befor fighting each other to the death.

In case you don’t have your “upcoming Snow White adaptation” scorecard, this is the one directed by Tarsem Singh (The Cell) with Julia Roberts as the evil queen, not the one that Viggo Mortensen told to go to hell. As for the title character, it’s not set in stone yet, but Saoirse Ronan is reportedly being looked at to play Snow White opposite Hammer. Hammer and Ronan both have big movies coming out, with the former appearing in Clint Eastood’s J. Edgar Hoover biopic, and the latter in Hannah. (via Deadline)

Did I just timewarp back to 1995, or is this a brand new romantic comedy starring Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts? Alas, time travel isn’t real, and so it’s sadly just a regular ol’ brand new romcom from this very year, 2o11. Larry Crowne, about a happy go lucky (read: seemingly a little dumb?) man, played by Hanks, who’s fired from his job for lacking a college degree. Who should turn out to be his junior college speech professor but the queen of big smiles and winning laughs herself, J. Robz? Also, he rides a scooter and acts excited. It looks… well it looks like exactly what I just described. Larry Crowne is directed by Hanks and will invade theaters and your hearts July 1st.

Ah, movie stars. When you or I spend a month or two goofing off, it’s vacation. When they do it, it’s a summer tent pole with millions of dollars invested and millions more to be spent in marketing and promotion. So it is with Larry Crowne, what looks to be a delightful frolic starring Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts, both of whom I’ve always preferred in comedies over heavy drama (this goes for Hanks especially).

Anyway, you can watch the clip here, from Hanks’ appearance last night on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” The clip from the movie comes in at around one minute into the video. (via The Playlist)

This should come as good news in case you thought they were going to cast to type with Katherine Heigl (suck it, Heigl!).

The other Snow White movie is set to have Charlize Theron as the Evil Queen. The Deadline article has a lot of information about which Snow White movie is more likely to get into production first, and what this would mean for the loser, etc. So depressing – there was a time when American Evil Queens united and did good work together, instead of facing off against one another like this. If you don’t believe me, look up some old “Hollywood Squares” clips on YouTube.

The story of Snow White is so hot right now, they should call it Slush Brown. That’s because the heat has melted… you know, let’s just all agree to move on from that joke.

Earlier today we reported on talks that Universal is close to casting Kristen Stewart to play the lead in Snow White and the Huntsman. Not to be upstaged, even though she totally is getting upstaged, Julia Roberts is close to nabbing the part of the Evil Queen in The Brother’s Grimm: Snow White for Relativity Media. Directed by Tarsem Singh (The Cell), this version of Snow White will be very dark, which does not distinguish it from the 400 other Snow Whites projects in any way. Oh, this one has a dragon for some reason. America does love dragons.

All the buzz is currently on the Kristen Stewart announcement today. Roberts can’t be ‘Mona Lisa Smiling’ about that. In a related story, I hear Roberts screams at a magic mirror in her house. Something about “I’m the fairest” and ”that bitch from Twilight” and then uncontrollable sobbing. (Cinema Blend)

With rival Snow White projects set up at Universal and Relativity, it was only a matter of time before the studios began their search to figure out who would play the mean, old bitch in their films. J.Lo being tied up as an “American Idol” judge has made this search a lot harder than it should be.

Universal has their eye on Charlize Theron to play the Evil Queen in Snow White And The Huntsman, and Relativity reportedly wants America’s sweetheart Julia Roberts to loan her trademark cackle to the role in Brothers Grimm: Snow White. Further casting rumors suggest that Michael Fassbender, Riley Keough, Felicity Jones, Bella Heathcote, or Alicia Vikander may join Huntsman. No dwarf casting has been mentioned yet, but Verne Troyer reportedly “likes his odds.” (Deadline and THR)

‘The Expendables’ Dominates At The Box Office http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/the-expendables-dominates-at-the-box-office/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/the-expendables-dominates-at-the-box-office/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Sylvester Stallone choked out Julia Roberts over the weekend, and his movie also beat hers at the box office. Stallone's salute to gritty 80's action, The Expendables, easily took the top spot with $35 million. Audiences weren't as eager to see Julia Roberts get fat and f*ck. Eat, Pray, Love took the second spot with just under $24 million. Looks like the call to action worked, fellas. Then there was Scott Pilgrim... well, Scott Pilgrim just kinda showed up, slumped its shoulders while gazing at its shoes before mumbling something about the new Arcade Fire album. Despite great reviews, producers just couldn't get fans of coin-op references and lesbian haircuts into the theater to see this one. But in all fairness, it was really sunny out in McCarren Park on Saturday. (Reuters)

P.M.S. a Side-Effect of Viewing ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ Trailer http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/p-m-s-a-side-effect-of-viewing-eat-pray-love-trailer/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/p-m-s-a-side-effect-of-viewing-eat-pray-love-trailer/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 This is how demons mate. In the trailer for Eat, Pray, Love, Julia Roberts goes on a quest under the Tuscan Indian sun to get her groove back. Except she puts pizza inside of her instead of Taye Diggs. The movie is based on the best-selling memoir by Elizabeth Gilbert, the writer who decided to pig out and travel for a year. Much like Vince Vaughn did when he decided to make Couple's Retreat.  Watch the trailer at your own risk. I just did and it caused me to have my first period. Great, there is seriously period all over the place now. I've never seen so much period. I'm gonna need like a million Tampax. Devour the trailer after the jump...
