Director Spike Jonze really seriously for reals wants you to see his friend David O. Russell’s The Fighter. He saw it and loved it, and doesn’t think that the original studio trailer does it justice.

Director: David O. Russell Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Melissa Leo, Jack McGee Synopsis: A look at the early years of boxer “Irish” Micky Ward and his brother…
The secret screening at AFI Film Festival was the long awaited boxing drama The Fighter. Mark Wahlberg waited four years to make this movie and it was a lot for me to take. I mean, I can handle death and despair. That’s a good time at the movies. You give me an abusive family and that’s just hopeless.
Sweet ink, boys.
Mark Wahlberg is in talks to star alongside a life-sized teddy bear in Seth MacFarlane's directorial debut, Ted. The R-rated comedy, also written by MacFarlane and "Family Guy" buds Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild, follows a normal Boston grown up guy who's still best friends with his childhood teddy bear that he wished would come to life, and it did. The bear however is a big slacker pain in the ass now and keeps Wahlberg's character from committing to adulthood.
MacFarlane will provide the voice of the bear, which will be created through the magic of computers. I'm sure Dan Aykroyd would be more than happy to offer advice on voicing a CG bear. He's got that skill down pat. I also can't end this post without acknowledging that Ted has the exact same premise as Drop Dead Fred. If you've never seen that movie, do yourself a favor and go out and SMASH A COPY. (Deadline)
I'm going to executive produce your face off!
Mark Wahlberg's gradual takeover of HBO moved one step closer to the tipping point with the announcement that he and Malcolm Gladwell are teaming up to produce a spy drama for the network. This brings Wahlberg's total number of HBO "executive producer" credits up to 55, give or take several dozen. Stephen Levinson and Charles Randolph will also act as executive producers, whatever that means.
The as-of-yet untitled series will take place in Cold War-era Berlin, and follow the exploits of a missionary who falls in with the CIA. In the interest of proving the writers at Vulture wrong, we will not go in for the easy "missionary position" joke, although God knows it would be hilarious if we did. (Vulture)
