If you didn’t go to Comic-Con, you missed out on girls walking around in their underwear. I know. It seems counter-intuitive that half-naked girls would be that close to comic books but it really happened.

Luckily, you can now watch the red band trailer for Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, which earned this rating by featuring a multitude of girls prancing around in their underwear. Mainly, it’s shots of Jessica Alba and Jamie Chung dancing in their underwear. In black and white, which makes it barely fappable even by 2004 standards.

Hulk Hogan Says Hulk Hogan Was Offered A Starring Role In ‘The Wrestler’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/hulk-hogan-says-hulk-hogan-was-offered-a-starring-role-in-the-wrestler/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/hulk-hogan-says-hulk-hogan-was-offered-a-starring-role-in-the-wrestler/#comments Fri, 27 Jan 2012 19:56:09 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=243904 The studio decided to go in a different direction, citing the rising costs of bandanas and mustache bleach.

The post Hulk Hogan Says Hulk Hogan Was Offered A Starring Role In ‘The Wrestler’ appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Sure, you knew Hulk Hogan was a great actor from his roles in No Holds Barred and Suburban Commando, but did you know that he’s willing to put acting glory aside for the good of his films?

You didn’t? Let me tell you a story that will prove that to you.

In speaking to Digital Spy, Hogan finally got around to telling the world that he had been offered the role of Randy “The Ram” Robinson in Darren Arnofsky’s The Wrestler, but he turned it down. Why?

“When the script for The Wrestler kept coming to me, I said, ‘This movie is so good,” Hogan claims. “If you put me in the film as a wrestler, people are going to say, ‘No credibility, Hulk Hogan isn’t a good actor’—whatever Hollywood thinks of me.”

Hulk puts the good of the film ahead of himself, like a real American.

Of course, Arnofsky has only gone on record as having considered Mickey Rourke, who got the role, and Nicolas Cage for the lead in The Wrestler. He must have his reasons for courting the Hulkster in secret. My money is on “he didn’t want to raise the ire of Hulk-a-maniacs everywhere, because when they hulk out, he could be in for a world of pain.”

This is Screen Junkies’ third Hulk Hogan article in forty days. 2012 is shaping up to be a tremendous year.

10 photos‘Immortals’ Actress Freida Pinto

Ryan Seacrest posted video of shirtless men on his official website and I encourage you to watch. I should also mention that the video in question is a new trailer for Tarsem Singh‘s Immortals.

This time around we get a good explanation as to why everyone is jumping in slow motion and hitting one another with swords. It turns out that Mickey Rourke‘s evil King Hyperion wants to overthrow the Gods but cannot do so without a magica weapon (naturally). He rampages through and overturns all of Greece, village by village, in an attempt to find it. That’s when Freida Pinto‘s Oracle has a vision that Henry Cavill would be really good at saving the day. That, of course, forces Rourke to unleash the “dytans” or “titans.” I don’t know. He was mumbling. I just know that it lacked the passion that Liam Neeson had while releasing the Kraken.

And on a side note, we need to be careful. Between this and Game Of Thrones, we’re pretty much daring Seltzer and Friedberg to make a Meet The Spartans sequel.

‘In Bruges’ Gang Back For ‘Seven Psychopaths’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/the-in-bruges-gang-is-back-for-seven-psychopaths/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/the-in-bruges-gang-is-back-for-seven-psychopaths/#comments Thu, 12 May 2011 16:04:51 +0000 Joseph Gibson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=211778 Exciting news for fans on 'In Bruges' and dognapping.

The post ‘In Bruges’ Gang Back For ‘Seven Psychopaths’ appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
Martin McDonagh’s In Bruges is one of the best movies of the last decade. It’s smart, exciting, gritty, and hilarious. Also, it taught me (and presumably many others) the proper pronunciation of  “Bruges.” Now, in exciting news for fans of that movie, Martin McDonagh is making another movie, Seven Psychopaths. And in even better news, he’s reuniting with Colin Farrell and the producers of In Bruges, plus billionaire heiress Megan Ellison because why wouldn’t she be involved? Still better news: Christopher Walken, Sam Rockwell, and Mickey Rourke have all signed on as well. In case this isn’t enough to make you excited about the movie, here’s what it’s about:

“Story follows a screenwriter (Farrell) struggling for inspiration for his script, “Seven Psychopaths,” who gets drawn into the dog kidnapping schemes of his oddball friends (Rockwell and Walken). Things take a turn for the worse when a gangster‘s (Rourke) mutt goes missing.”

Dognapping! So if you’re a fan of In Bruges, Christopher Walken, Sam Rockwell, and Mickey Rourke, plus you’re a cat person, there’s absolutely no reason for you not to see this. I know I’ll be there – I need inspiration for my script, Guy Watches ‘Seven Psychopaths’. (Variety)

You can now kick that crummy Immortals. Well, whether or not you can describe it as “new” is debatable, what with it seeming exactly like 300 and all. Still, if you can’t get enough of ancient angry military dudes giving impassioned speeches right before hyperstylized battle sequences, where the odds are tremendously against our heroes, be sure to click on the play button above.

Immortals stars Henry “Super Brit” Cavill, Stephen Dorff Mickey Rourke, and is directed by Tarsem Singh (“The Cell”). The film has an impossible-to-remember release date of 11-11-11.

Mickey Rourke is a rebel. And rebels sometimes say things they don’t really mean, like that the upcoming movie Passion Play with Megan Fox isn’t any good. But he didn’t mean it! He recently apologized to Vulture for his shameful comments:

“Hey, guys. When I talked to you, I was at a party. It was loud and crowded, I was in a shitty mood and I was trying to get rid of your reporter. Mitch is one of my best friends since we were kids. I loved working with him and would do it again tomorrow. I don’t know why I said that stupid shit. I love Mitch, I love Megan. My bad.”

Now the question is if America will ever be able to forgive Rourke for saying these things about Passion Play and our National Princess Megan Fox. We’ll just have to wait and see. Maybe a  cameo appearance in The Hangover 2 would help?

The post Rourke Will Be A Gay Rugby Player By February appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
Mickey Rourke, in one of his usual crazy-by-normal-standards-but-sane-by-Rourke-standards interviews, has conveyed that filming on his pet project, a biopic of openly gay rugby player Gareth Thomas, will begin in February.

Is he to be believed? It seems as though the project isn’t destined to be green lit, as Rourke is 22 years older than Thomas and will have to demonstrate some serious chops on the rugby pitch. But Rourke stands strong in his assertion that the project is moving forward. Once someone that’s not Mickey Rourke provides corroboration that the project is moving forward, I’ll start to believe.

For over a year, Rourke has been playing up this project, discussing it in interviews and championing Thomas (though rumors are it might just be a story inspired by Thomas, rather than a true biopic). The only disappointment there is that Rourke may no longer be required to perform a Welsh accent, which had me giddy as a schoolgirl. (Vulture)

Mickey Rourke is not one to toe the company line. He pretty much just says whatever comes to mind, which makes him way above the amusement curve in Hollywood. And his latest shenanigan is not a disappointment. Here’s what he had to say about his upcoming movie Passion Play:

Terrible. Another terrible movie. But, you know, in your career and all the movies you make, you’re going to make dozens of terrible ones.”

He wasn’t done trying to convince you to see Passion Play though. When asked why the movie is being released on a limited basis, he replied “[t]hat’s because it’s not very good.” Well, I’m definitely sold. Unless Rourke’s costar Megan Fox says she liked it, in which case I’ll probably lose interest. (MovieLine)

The good news is that Megan Fox is wearing barely anything, save for a pair of angel wings. The bad news is Mickey Rourke is wearing even less and crawling around on top of her.

Passion Play stars Rourke as a trumpeter who meets Megan Fox‘s dancer character who may be an actual angel. Or a girl who had a really bad dad. At any rate, Rourke wants to free Fox from Bill Murray‘s gangster pimp character, and there-in lies the conflict. The film has had a few setbacks since TIFF last year, when everyone noticed it sucks pretty bad. It will open in limited release in New York and Los Angeles before going to DVD at the end of May.

Not to lump on, but I’m not surprised this movie got made. What surprises me the most is that Bill Murray answered his hotline for this.

Looks like the star of Taken may not be back to reprise his role in Taken 2. Maybe sequel co-writer/producer Luc Besson will kidnap Liam Neeson‘s daughter until he says “yes?” Of course, the joke would be on him, since Neeson only has sons.

Besson has been putting together the sequel to the hit ex-CIA agent vs. the French Underworld drama, and he’s currently talking to Best Last Name Ever Award Winner Olivier Megaton (Transporter 3) about directing it. However, Besson wants to shoot Taken 2 this year, while forgettable Jedi Neeson wants to take the year off for personal reasons. Can you do a sequel without the lead from the original? Besson is willing to try: his list of possible replacements to play Bryan Mills (or a character very, very similar) includes Ralph FiennesMickey Rourke, and Jason Isaacs.

Faced with replacing Neeson with “The Ram,” Besson recently went back to Neeson and the two are currently trying to work out a shooting schedule for late this year, but nothing is confirmed yet. (Deadline)

UPDATE: My hostage plan worked, I assume. Liam Neeson just officially signed on for Taken 2. Neeson will get some time off before dealing with more stuff getting taken – the sequel starts filming late 2011 / early 2012.

More news from the Berlin Film Festival, which usually generates a lot of news about producers picking up scripts to be made into movies. And, as expected, we have a new bit of news that features America’s Thespian Lenny Kravitz, some guy named Mickey Rourke, and Rosario Dawson. They have all 3 signed on to star in The Blind Bastard Club, which is about a group of sightless individuals “who live life on the edge… going to the shooting range, jumping out of planes, getting into fights in bars, and pretending they’re not blind.” This kind of reminds me of what me and my buddies used to do on the weekends – we’d go to bars and pretend TO be blind. Turns out that chicks are really into blind guys until they find out they’re faking it.

The Blind Bastard Club is set to begin filming in Brazil, where Mr. Kravitz is apparently a huge star (the world’s funny sometimes, huh?), and will be directed by Ash Baron-Cohen, cousin of the Borat guy. (via The Playlist)

A new odor-producing machine is targeted towards theaters as a completely new way to ruin moviegoing for everyone. ScentSciences has introduced this $70 machine to work in tandem with ScentEditor software to provide appropriate smell emanations during movie screenings. I can’t wait to hear stories of directors having their creative vision undermined because the the pie smell in the third act was pecan and not rhubarb, which is what the studio promised.

While many scents would be contextual as part of the film, what’s more exciting is the prospect of stars getting editorial review of scents. For instance, Dakota Fanning would smell like a lemon poppy-seed muffin, Robert Pattinson would smell like a clove cigarette, and the entire theater would reek of beef jerky anytime Mickey Rourke came onscreen.

There are, thankfully, no plans to roll these things out in theaters yet, but given the smashing success of 3-D technology, it’s only a matter of time before smells are emitted and theaters hire gang members to punch the audience, all in the name of a more authentic cinematic experience. I’m just excited to see if studio execs think that Gene Hackman should smell like an old sweater or Worthers’ Originals hard candy. C’mon sweater! (Geekologie)

There’s method acting, and then there’s this.

Inmovies.ca is reporting that actor Mickey Rourke is considering having his front teeth removed for his upcoming role as Gareth Thomas, an openly gay Welsh rugby player who is missing his front choppers.

According to Thomas’ agent, Emanuele Palladino, Rourke “is going to get rid of his two front teeth and stuff – he will be taking them out.”

Added Palladino, “Mickey intends to get as close to the character as he can.”

Who you callin' gay?

Mickey Rourke came out on a British talkshow the other day as a future portrayer of a gay rugby player. The actor who would punch my face through my face after reading the above headline is prepping to play Gareth Thomas, the gay rugby player who also happens to like men. Rourke said: “To be a man who plays rugby, who is gay, and to live with that secret for the amount of years that Gareth had, to perform at the high level that he performed at, it takes a lot of courage.” I could make a distasteful scrum joke right now, but I’m not gonna because I’m better than that. And Mickey might be watching. (Vulture)

Here we have a trailer(?) for a film starring Jason Statham, Ray Winstone, Mickey Rourke, and 50 Cent. Surprisingly, it’s not titled Tough Guys Mumbling. Rather it’s called 13 and it takes us inside the gritty world of competitive Russian roulette, which involves carrying around a lot of bags of money and wearing assigned numbers. Go with it. It’s just easier than name-tags.

I question its trailerness because the “trailer” itself could use a little spicing up. It’s really just a confusing hodge-podge of sh*t. Plodding, dull, and doesn’t do much to explain or present anything. All we learn from this is that a young guy has to play Russian roulette. And Mickey Rourke is there. And there’s a guy overseeing the game who I swore was Jason Bateman the first time I watched this. Spoiler alert: he isn’t Jason Bateman.

Now we know who will play these shady characters. It's been announced that Mickey Rourke and Til Schweiger have joined the cast. This is fantastic casting. We all know what Mickey Rourke is capable of, and Til Schweiger was a highlight of Inglourious Basterds. Production begins later this month in New Orleans, but don't tell Jason Statham. If he hears there's a film about an expert bagman going on, he may just assume he's the star. Things could get awkward if he shows up and asks for a call sheet. (The Wrap)

Back in August, we reported that Jeffrey Dean Morgan would star in The Courier, a film about a bagman attempting to deliver a mysterious briefcase while crooked cops, gangsters, and federal agents try to jack him. Now we know who will play these shady characters. It’s been announced that Mickey Rourke and Til Schweiger have joined the cast. This is fantastic casting. We all know what Mickey Rourke is capable of, and Til Schweiger was a highlight of Inglourious Basterds.

Mickey Rourke Takes New Job As Mafia Contract Killer http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/mickey-rourke-takes-new-job-as-mafia-contract-killer/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/mickey-rourke-takes-new-job-as-mafia-contract-killer/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Even assassins have their soft spots. Mickey Rourke has signed on for the feature adaptation of the book "The Ice Man: Confessions of a Mafia Contract Killer." David McKenna (American History X) is writing the script about Richard "The Ice Man" Kuklinksi, a professional assassin who doubled as a loving father and husband in New Jersey. Hmmmm, sounds like Tony Soprano, does it not? But considering Kuklinksi isn't Italian, this story will have less capicola and guys shouting, "OH EH! EH OH!" Or maybe it's just Tony Danza that does that. Either way, Rourke is playing an assassin, and he's a method actor, so if you start hearing stories of hookers being found with double-taps to the chest, don't look at me. It was probably Rourke. NOT me. (Variety)

The Expendables
R, 103m., 2010
Cast: Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Steve Austin, Giselle Itie, Charisma Carpenter, David Zayas with Terry Crews, Eric Roberts and Mickey Rourke
Directed by Sylvester Stallone
Screenplay by David Callaham and Sylvester Stallone

There was this large plastic bin that I had growing up filled with action figures and their variou weapon accessories. From Duke Nuk’em to The Terminator, the original 90s Batman series, metal figure G.I Joes, Aliens, X-Men, Biker Mice from Mars, Ghostbusters, Toxic Crusaders and others that I have now forgot. They traveled with me wherever I moved during those years. They were my friends, enemies, and characters to create.

More after the jump…

Much like Andy in the Toy Story series, I didn’t want to keep them in the box like other kids in the neighborhood. They were action toys and they were meant to fight, team up, travel around the world in my room’s shag carpet, blow up Lego castles, use my brother’s model airplanes to crash fortresses, and go mano e mano. They never had time for girls or dolls, they had a mission and they stuck to it. At the end of the day, my Mom of course told me to pick up the battle of plastic that laid before her, while I was fighting most of the time to have five more minutes to do just one more rescue or bomb diffusion. But at the end of the day all those plastic warriors would go back into the bind, waiting for their next mission.

Sylvester Stallone’s The Expendables is pretty much those toys coming back out of the box for another day’s deadly mission. Abided that they are played now by the real deal of aging 80s action stars and those that can still act or at least give a good line reading, getting some juicy monologues in between the action.
   
With thousands of pounds in sweat, blood, muscle, bullets, and explosives, Stallone leads the wolf pack of mercenaries called ‘The Expendables’ as Barney Ross. Following him are his wingman Jason Statham as Lee Christmas, lightning quick Jet Li as Yin Yang, psycho redneck Randy Couture as Toll Road, big machine Terry Crews as Hail Caesar, strung out Dolph Lundgren as Gunner Jensen, and wise old biker friend Mickey Rourke as Tool.  They are usually funded by a guy named Mr. Church (Bruce Willis, owning the entire movie in his one scene) and a mysteriously lumpy old politician, we Californians know all too well.

When the gang isn’t blowing up half of South America or any other third world country from the grip of rogue CIA agents (Eric Roberts and Steve Austin) and cartoon military dictators (David Zayas from TV’s Dexter), they hang out  at a biker bar next to Tool’s place where they shoot the shit, drink beer, and compare each other’s knives. It’s the ultimate man caves of caves, where no one else but this cast of aging action characters seem to be hanging around.

Stallone delivers the movie with such breeze. There are, of course, wall-to-wall action sequences, but through all of its rocky rubble and bloodshed, it’s just another Saturday morning cartoon.

The movie only dapples at the crumbling and harsh aging world these men of war find themselves in. Stallone as we can see here is no Sam Peckenpah or Robert Aldrich in dealing action goods with a real sense of tragic undercurrent, though he does very wisely use the best dramatic actor in the bunch, Rourke, to give a few classic monologues of regret and the violent past him and his team led. Rourke can make a lot of tough guys cry if he wants to.

But then again, no real tough guy really wants to hear about their tragically violent self-worth when coming to see The Expendables. They just want action, wisecracks, and surprise cameos galore.

The action for the most part is delivered especially when the younger dudes Statham, Li, and Crews are on screen, because they aren’t quite so lumpy and old like the rest of the cast. Stallone’s scenes look especially thrown together by quick cuts and close-ups.

The Expendables
, like my childhood action figures at the end of the day were all picked up, cleaned off and sent back into their bind for another day’s play, eventually forgotten and thrown away, but wait… that’s another summer movie.

Grade: B-

Now, Scott Frank has been brought in to rework the script that tells the story of a young cop who infiltrates the nefarious gang. This is spot-on casting. I can't think of a single actor more appropriate than Mickey Rourke for the grizzled Hells Angels founder.

The trailer also features more Stark, Fury, Whiplash, War Machine, and an easily foldable Iron Man suit, but no amount of CGI can trump Scarlett's magnificent naturals (James Cameron hangs his head, defeated).
