As was done by Delirious-era Eddie Murphy before him, Chris Evans’s Captain America is intent on showing the world how comfortable and mobile a leather bodysuit truly is.
The first official look at Jim Carrey hanging out with penguins in ‘Mr. Popper’s Penguins,’ the spiritual sequel to ‘Ace Ventura: Pet Detective.’
Last week “Entertainment Tonight” teased their exclusive first look at Captain America: The First Avenger. And then nothing. Well, where the hell is it?
The upcoming horror movie Priest looks kind of cool, if you’re not all vamped out after Twilight and the like.
Super-heroes tend to be a package deal – you don’t just get Batman, but also Robin, a utility belt, and an acrobat wearing uncomfortably small shorts.
When January Jones was cast as Emma Frost in Matthew Vaughn’s X-Men: First Class, we all looked at drawings of Frost then at Jones. Then back at Frost. Then back at Jones. Then we got all giddy.
Jeremy Renner will be making a brief appearance as Hawkeye in the upcoming Thor. It’s all part of Marvel’s plan to tease Joss Whedon’s The Avengers until anticipation has reached a fever pitched, and then consequently plummeted.
Jim Carrey was spotted on the set of Mr. Popper’s Penguins in New York City’s Central Park canoodling with none other than two penguins. He seems to be thoroughly unimpressed with their presence.
Disney has dropped the trailer for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides: Longest Movie Title Ever. Johnny Depp reprises his role as Captain Jack Sparrow, and this time Penelope Cruz is along for the bumpy ride as they search for the Fountain of Youth.
J.J. Abrams and his viral campaigns are going to leave us completely desensitized when real monsters attack.
I’ve got good news for anyone who was left cold by X-Men 3 or Wolverine. Producers have decided to give X-Men: First Class a plot. Now that’s a step in the right direction!
See Depp wobble! See Depp dragged! See Depp push! See Depp peek! These new high quality production stills from Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides show Johnny Depp in a variety of poses.
The conspiracy is out! The teaser trailer for Michael Bay’s Transformers: Dark of the Moon has landed (puuuuuuunriffic!) We get a nice moody build-up, but the basic gist is astronauts exploring the moon find an alien life form. I have a feeling Shia LaBeouf then comes in and saves the day.
Michael Bay sat down with a few reporters recently to present the Transformers 3 teaser. He also took the opportunity to talk about his new found love of 3D, his new leading lady, and his sh*tty sense of humor.
Entertainment Tonight went on a journey behind the scenes of the latest Pirates of the Caribbean movie in the treacherous terrain of London, England. Anchor Mark Steines narrates the adventure as pirate extras munch on sandwiches in the background.
Michael Bay has some news for morons. There have recently been rumors that Transformers 3: Dark Of The Moon has been having problems with its 3Dness, which is ridiculous. This is Michael Bay we’re talking about.
Attention all earthlings, the trailer for Jon Favreau’s Cowboys & Aliens has finally landed. If you love cowboys and aliens and have always wished that through the use of movie magic both groups could be mashed together, well partner, this is your lucky day.
Warner Bros. has dropped the trailer for The Green Lantern! …With Espanol subtitles. 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.
Tuesday, Entertainment Tonight is going to premiere the Green Lantern trailer that will play before Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Yesterday they premiered the teaser of that trailer in between “We’re number one! We’re number one!” promotional graphics.
After yesterday’s posting of the No Strings Attached trailer, the film became an instant classic. So much so, that there’s already a copycat. Today we have a red band, naughty trailer for Friends With Benefits, which stars Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis in the Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman roles respectively.
I can’t even muster up the will to make a clever headline for this post. Columbia Pictures has dropped the trailer for The Zookeeper starring Kevin James. He’s basically Doctor Doolittle sans the title that comes from years spent in animal medical school.
Ed Helms is trading up. Heather Graham won't be returning for The Hangover sequel, but Jamie Chung is stepping in. The former "Real World" star won't have to mud-wrestle Coral in the "Real World/Road Rules Challenge" Gulag to make her rent.
With Premium Rush and Suckerpunch under her belt, Chung will next head to Thailand to play the fiancée of Ed Helms's character, Stu. Not sure if she's his fiancée at the start of the film or if they become engaged during a night of Thai debauchery. I'm hoping that they don't meet in Thailand. It will be so depressing to find out she has a penis. (THR)
This morning I posted Chris Evans as Captain America: The First Avenger looking all stoic on the cover of Entertainment Weekly. Now I have more pictures for your eyeballs. The above pic focuses on Captain America's ass, or shield if you'd prefer. After the jump, check out Hugo Weaving as the early incarnation of Red Skull and Chris Evans shirtless **splashes glass of water on face**
That's not morning wood you're sporting. It's an excitement boner from laying eyes on this first official pic of Chris Evans in his tight, slick Captain America costume from the new issue of EW. Look at him with his star and shield and strappy thingies. He's like a cigar store Indian without the headdress, and more patriotic rags. I'm sure we'll see a teaser trailer soon, as the movie hits theaters July 22, 2011, but for now you'll have to do with just the pic, like old school Internet porn days.
"Okay, Mr. Gibson. If your career will just follow me this way."
Liam Neeson continues to build his film resume of doing anything anyone asks him to do. As previously reported, Mel Gibson was lined up to play a tattooist in The Hangover 2. The news caused the cast and crew to revolt, which led to Mel losing the part. That's when Bradley Cooper got on the horn with Liam Neeson and offered him the cameo role.
That's good. I guess. It's kind of a lame cameo though. Mike Tyson was clever stunt-casting, and his inclusion worked well with the first movie's plot. Neeson seems like a total left field choice. And he's in everything. Literally. Go through your DVD collection and look really hard during crowd shots. I'm sure he'll pop up 8 times out of 10. (Variety)
Michael Bay and James Cameron: Two directors who don’t take any sh*t, with comparatively different results. Bay’s actually kind of bowing to Cameron by shooting Transformers 3 in 3D. He’d always said he thought it was just a gimmick. So now he’s got to be nice to 3D camera inventor Vincent Pace.
“We’re doing Transformers with Michael Bay, and that’s a big challenge because he’s not the kind of director that’s going to give you a break,” Pace said as he demonstrated his cameras from Avatar. “But he met it halfway and he said, ‘Look, it complements my product, and I want to incorporate this into my shooting style.’”
More after the jump…
Mel Gibson is out of The Hangover 2 before he was even in it. Earlier this week we reported that Gibson was confirmed for a cameo in Todd Phillips's upcoming sequel to his hit The Hangover, but now TMZ is reporting that Gibson got the boot. Phillips had this to say:
"I thought Mel would have been great in the movie and I had the full backing of Jeff Robinov and his team. But I realize filmmaking is a collaborative effort, and this decision ultimately did not have the full support of my entire cast and crew."
It's thought that star Zach Galifianakis might be the one who was most opposed to working with Gibson, which is perplexing considering he's neither Jewish nor one of Mel's exes. Regardless, Gibson won't get a chance at a comeback with a role as a tattoo artist in The Hangover 2, what I hear is the equivalent of saying ten Hail Marys and kicking a terrorist in the balls.
It looks like Zach Galifianakis doesn't want to eat the cooter banana. While appearing recently on the Comedy Death Ray podcast, the notoriously choosey star of G-Force, "Tru Calling," and Out Cold intimated that he's having some "moral" issues with what Todd Phillips is planning to do on The Hangover 2.
“But a movie you’re acting in, you don’t have a lot of control — you just show up and vomit your lines out. I’m not the boss. I’m in a deep protest right now with a movie I’m working on, up in arms about something. But I can’t get the guys to [listen] … I’m not making any leeway.” Galifianakis cut host Scott Aukerman off with an abrupt warning sound as the host began to mention the film’s title, but after Aukerman pressed, “I know you’re filming The Hhhhhhhh … ” Galifianakis admitted, “It has something to do with a movie I’m working on, yeah. I’ll tell you about it later. It’s very frustrating.”
People are assuming that Galifianakis is taking issue with the inclusion of a Mel Gibson cameo in the film. Which is kind of silly. Sure, the man is considered vile right now and this is a case of stunt casting in the highest degree, but in all fairness, he was going to be hungover anway. Can you really blame Todd Phillips if he happens to point a camera at it? (Vulture)
Mel Gibson runs with a pack. The Mel Gibson comeback express is leaving the station, and the first stop is The Hangover 2. The second stop is some sort of…
Here's a rumor that might be crazy enough to be true. Page Six is reporting that Mel Gibson will have a cameo in The Hangover 2 as a tattoo artist. He'll shoot his scene on the Bangkok set at Warner Bros. before the production moves to Thailand at the end of the month. Can this really be happening? Does director Todd Phillips really want to take this chance? Should Mel Gibson be left around needles when the slightest peak at a skanky extra could set him off?
When Todd Phillips used Mike Tyson in The Hangover people took notice, so perhaps he's using the same strategy in the sequel. Afterall, Tyson bit a man's ear off, and Gibson hasn't done that yet as far as the public record is concerned. Maybe doing a cameo in an outlandish comedy is the perfect way to get back in people's good graces. After the world accepts him as a tattoo artist it might finally be ready to watch him tackle Jodie Foster's Beaver. (/Film)
