Bernal and Hudson Turn 'Heaven' Into Hell

The trailer for A Little Bit of Heaven has just been released. It's exactly what you'd expect from a Kate Hudson movie, and nothing you would expect from a Gael Garcia Bernal film. The U.K. trailer for A Little Bit of Heaven has just been released. It's exactly what you'd expect from a Kate Hudson movie, and nothing you would expect from a Gael Garcia Bernal film. Which is a very, very bad thing. The plot of A Little Bit of Heaven is essentially, "Kate Hudson is a successful career woman who doesn't believe in love. But wait! Here come the romantic Bernal..." It appears from the trailer that using Bernal's charms to salvage this film is the equivalent of shooting a BB gun at a giggling, hackneyed freight train. There's a small chance that the film is not as derivative as it may seem, but that's just because any film that is able to snag Bernal, Kathy Bates, Whoopi Goldberg, Romany Malco, and Peter Dinklage can't be completely awful. Right? Right? The UK release date for A Little Bit of Heaven is February 4th. The US release is planned for later in the year, which explains why we're watching the UK trailer, which seems to be a perfect fit for American Kate Hudson fans too. Maybe Kate Hudson is a constant across nations and cultures. Or maybe there's just bad taste in every country.

8-Bit Ripley Looks Totally Hot In Lost 'Aliens' Game

If you owned the classic Nintendo in the 80s and love 'Aliens,' your jaw will drop at this game project that got lost in space. There's a lot of talk now about the new Alien-ish movie. However, if you owned the classic Nintendo in the 80s and love Aliens, your jaw will drop at this game project that got lost in space. In 1987, Japanese game publisher Square, who later created the RPG series Final Fantasy, which we're sure has inspired more than one chocobo furry sex orgy at Dragon*Con, got the license to make an Aliens game. Unfortunately, the game was never released on the NES, only on the Japanese Famicom Disk System. The recently rediscovered game is documented in the video above from 1up. It shows us what we've all been missing. The biggest thing, in my opinion, is the super-sexy Sigourney Weaver sprite. She has ducked and float-leaped into my heart. If the 8-bit version of Ripley came into my bedroom wearing a pink jump suit and big boots, brandishing a laser gun, I wouldn't turn her down. Maybe that's partly because of my fear of laser guns, but still. 5-year-old me would have declared 8-bit Ripley his girlfriend, and once again, nobody would talk to me at recess. (1up)


Kate Winslet Is Following Her Vagina's Every Whim Again In 'Labor Day' Trailer

This film reminds me of 'The Iron Giant'. But with pie sex. In Jason Reitman's Labor Day, Kate Winslet once again plays a character who complicates her existence by jumping into bed with the wrong person. This time, it's Josh Brolin's sexy escaped convict who takes she and her son hostage. Before long, Stockholm syndrome and horny mommitis take over leading Winslet to attempt to build a life with the fugitive killer after discovering he can not only satisfy her physical needs, but do so while baking a pie. That's just showing off. Between the time period and the boy having to stay one step ahead of the law in order to protect their house guest, this film reminds me of The Iron Giant. Except for the pie sex.


Trailer For Terence Malick's 'Knight Of Cups' Is More 'American Psycho' Than 'Days Of Heaven'

And not just because it also stars Christian Bale. Terence Malick, known best for his pensive films featuring broad landscapes, gives us something else entirely with Knight of Cups, which stars Christian Bale and a host of other names (Cate Blanchett, Natalie Portman, Brian Dennehy, Antonio Banderas, Freida Pinto, Wes Bentley, Isabel Lucas, Teresa Palmer, Imogen Poots, Armin Mueller-Stahl). The film, which seems to be a frenetic Los Angeles romp, will premiere at the Berlin Film Festival in February. However, lest you think that Terence Malick has just adopted some music video chops to make his film play with the ADD crowd, we get an official synopsis that seems more in keeping with the auteur: Once there was a young prince whose father, the king of the East, sent him down into Egypt to find a pearl. But when the prince arrived, the people poured him a cup. Drinking it, he forgot he was the son of a king, forgot about the pearl and fell into a deep sleep. Rick’s father used to read this story to him as a boy. The road to the East stretches out before him. Will he set forth? Huh. That doesn't seem to match up with the coke and the lingerie and the cars so much. It's almost like there's some deeper meaning behind all the vapidity presented. Bravo, Mr. Malick. Things are not always what they seem.


We Now Get 'Se7en' Remade As A Fake 8-Bit Video Game. Hurray!

"8-Bit Kevin Spacey" is the name of my noise rock band. We're playing a show next week. You should totally come. I don't know what's so funny about seeing complex films juxtaposed against the simplistic plots and graphics of 8-bit films. Wait. Yes I do. It's what I just said. That's why they're funny. The guys behind 8-Bit Cinema have done it again, this time by taking the dark world of David Fincher's Se7en and giving it the NES treatment. Though, to be fair, this looks a little more like SNES 16-bit graphics, but I'm not here to upset the apple cart. Just watch the video. It's very funny to watch two noir detectives investigate heinous crimes in such a ridiculous context. I wish this was a real game.


UK Trailer Provides A Less Bloody Look At 'Conan the Barbarian'

Plot points? Apparently this film isn't all just random violence. The new UK trailer for Conan the Barbarian gives us a new look at Marcus Nispel's film. This time, the focus shifts from watching dudes and monsters getting hacked to pieces to story details for some reason. Here we see Stephen Lang chewing the scenery as the angel of death that kills Conan's father and thus sets the young barbarian on his path. There's also a lot of sword swinging, knife throwing, monster-battling, and text set against a fiery background for all you barbarian purists.


Kate Upton And Other People Star In 'The Other Woman' Trailer

I'll take all the tickets, please. The Other Woman stars Cameron Diaz as a lawyer who thinks she has found Mr. Right. However, she discovers that she is his mistress upon meeting Mrs. Right, as played by Leslie Mann. Instead of tearing out each others weaves, they team up to bring him down. The best way to do that, recruit his younger, hotter, heavy-chested mistress Kate Upton to hit him where it hurts. Using the unstoppable combination of lawyer powers, light poisoning, and large natural breasts, they strive to take him down without outright stealing the cast dynamic of 9 to 5.


Love Hurts Like A Bitch In 'Like Crazy' Trailer

The Sundance sensation heads to theaters October 28th. [post-album postid="11592" item="5"]The Sundance hit Like Crazy is gearing up for a limited release on October 28th. Just in time to get those Anton Yelchin masks out for Halloween. Though there's been a lot of write-up about the indie, this is our first glimpse of a trailer. In the film Yelchin plays an American student who talks so goddamned low that you can't understand a word of this trailer. He falls in love with his British classmate played by Felicity Jones as she's the only one who can make out what he's trying to say. Their relationship suffers when she violates her visa and must return to England. Looks pretty good if you're into crying and sun-flare. Still though, speak up Yelchin! Sound guys can only do so much.
