Many people like to bitch and moan about Brown’s work just because it’s “clichéd” and “poorly written.” Those people need to chill the hell out. What’s the harm? It’s just mindless fun, like having sex with a coma patient.
Someone's been watching 'A Beautiful Mind' in their dorm room. The first official full length trailer for David Fincher's The Social Network has dropped, and it is wow. I was a little skeptical after seeing the first and second teaser, but I apologize for doubting the project and may the shadow demons from Ghost have mercy on my soul. The trailer is constructed beautifully. Fincher must have been keeping a choir rendition of Radiohead's "Creep" in his back pocket for years. The song just wouldn't work when synced with Brad Pitt. Most Radiohead tracks don't. The Social Network friends theaters October 1, 2010. Check out the trailer after the jump…
Aaron Sorkin burn. The second teaser for David Fincher's The Social Network has dropped, and it doesn't give us much more than the first one. It swaps bold, dramatic text with scrolling Facebook status updates written by the film's characters. The whole thing seems like a bad idea from a legal standpoint. Why would Mark Zuckerberg want all of his backstabbing documented on the very site that made him millions? And why do none of the updates inform me who's drinking alone tonight, who just heard their favorite song on the radio, and who just made a killer grilled cheese sandwich? It's those mundane details that will cement the realism of the narrative. Check out the second teaser after the jump…
Yesterday, fairly unknown British actor Andrew Garfield was awarded the coveted role of Peter Parker in the Spider-Man reboot. You can "Extra! Extra! Read all about it!" right here. Sony made the official announcement at a press event in Cancun, Mexico for international journalists attending a media tour promoting upcoming films from Sony Pictures Entertainment. Personally, I feel Garfield is more suited to play Ichabod Crane or bass in Coldplay than Spider-man, but what do I know. I don't run a studio and sleep on 2,000 thread count sheets. Yet…Check out pics and video from the event below.
Andew Garfield has been officially for real seriously chosen as the new Spider-man/Peter Parker in the reboot to be directed by Mark Webb. We've reported all kinds of rumors and hearsay, but the studio made the official announcement today at a press event in Cancun, Mexico for international journalists attending a media tour promoting upcoming films from Sony Pictures Entertainment.On selecting Garfield, director Marc Webb said, “Though his name may be new to many, those who know this young actor’s work understand his extraordinary talents. He has a rare combination of intelligence, wit, and humanity. Mark my words, you will love Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker.”Words marked, Mark Webb. Garfield is starring in the upcoming David Fincher film The Social Network and Mark Romanek's next, Never Let Me Go opposite Keira Knightley and Carey Mulligan. He seems to be partial to directors who made a name for themselves in the music video and commercial world before transitioning into features.Okay, so we can all stop worrying about the new Spider-man now. It's Andrew Garfield. They start shooting in December. And don't you DARE start asking about Mary Jane yet. I will lose my sh*t.
Showcasing Olga Kurlylenko's maybe-penis on its poster helped Hitman earn a $70 million profit, so it's no surprise that Sony wants to make another one. The studio is eyeballing Spanish director Daniel Benmayor to helm but there's no word if Timothy Olyphant will be returning. Though they do have an option on him should they decide to hold him down and shave his head again.Benmayor's claim to fame so far is the feature Paintball, a movie about weekend warriors who discover someone is using live ammo in their paintball game. Sounds like the second act of Child's Play 3 before they randomly end up at that carnival. Chucky should really try to avoid places where there's the possibility of falling into a giant fan. Yeah. But anyway, Hitman 2. (Deadline)
Popeye wrestles with his demon.Move over, Stallone. Another aged strongman prone to using performance-enhancers is making his way back to theaters. Variety reports that Sony Pictures Animation will be releasing a computer animated Popeye in 3D. The storyline is being kept under wraps but producer Avi Arad has said it "will cover the themes of friendship, love, greed and life, and focus on human strengths and human frailties.” Hey, did he just steal the logline from The Room?This obviously follows the trend of other cartoon to film adaptations such as Garfield, The Smurfs, Underdog, Marmaduke, and Alvin and the Chipmunks. I only hope the sailorman sticks to eating spinach and not his own sh*t.
IN MIND-BONING 3D!!!!!!!!!Sony seems to be having a good time pushing Marc Webb around as he develops their Spider-Man reboot. Sony Marketing Chairman Jeff Blake announced today that the movie will be forcing its way into theaters on July 3rd, 2012 in sure-to-be-dull-by-then 3D. Great. Now I have to risk pink-eye to see this studio-directed bastardization? From Blake:“Spider-Man is the ultimate summer movie-going experience, and we’re thrilled the filmmakers are presenting the next installment in 3D. They resisted at first but we tightened the vice on their testicles and convinced them to see things our way. We find that groin pain can be quite the motivator. Spider-Man is one of the most popular characters in the world, and we know audiences are eager and excited to discover Marc’s fantastic vision (stiffles laughter) for Peter Parker and the franchise. Now let's cram this baby full of villians and give Spidey a jive-talking sidekick. Maybe a flying squirrel voiced by Eddie Murphy or something. And tits. I'm told teenage boys like tits.”No word yet on the film's title or which little jerk will star as Peter Parker. (Deadline Hollywood)
The bidding war over the rights to the Terminator franchise is over and the winner is… Pacificor? I'm sorry but I'm not familiar with their films. From Deadline Hollywood: “Sony and Lionsgate dropped out at just under $29.5 million when it became clear that Santa Barbara-based hedge fund Pacificor was willing to pay almost any amount of money for Terminator.” Oh. That's why I didn't know them. Pacificor is the debtholder that pushed Halcyon into bankruptcy in the first place. Now they've swooped in and traded that debt for the once lucrative franchise. I think it would be awesome if James Cameron bought them. Not so he could make another Terminator but so he could take a dump on Terminator 3 in front of director Jonathan Mostow's house.No one knows what Pacificor plans to do with the rights but let's hope it's not to steal the technology and build their own army of machines. If robots become self-aware, there's no telling what kind of damage they may cause. (Deadline Hollywood)
