Several big casting announcements were made today, the most notable being that Natalie Portman will play Jane Foster in the upcoming comic book adaptation Thor. Foster will play the main love interest in the film. While I’m not excited about the project, at least it now has some female eye candy.
The Golden Globe-winning series Mad Men brings Season 2 to DVD this Tuesday, and along with it all 13 episodes of some of the best drama on television. Season 2 builds upon the foundations created in the first season while giving the characters more things to do, and more importantly, more avenues to explore.
Ryan Reynolds, who has had roles in Blade: Trinity and X-Men Origins: Wolverine, will play the title character in the upcoming Green Lantern movie, DC Comics’ latest attempt to cash in on one of its superhero franchises. The casting comes as a bit of a surprise, as momentum – at least in the rumor mill […]
Forget Megan Fox. Odette Yustman is the hottest young actress working today. In her follow-up to Cloverfield, in which she made a name for herself despite being in the movie for just a few minutes, she plays a young woman who is being haunted by her dead, unborn twin. That’s got to suck. Read the […]
Here’s something random: Rupert Grint, who plays Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter movies, has swine flu. His publicist reported that the young man is on his death bed… or, at least, he has the sniffles. “It has just been confirmed that Rupert Grint has taken a few days out of filming due to a […]
There’s bad, and then there’s Street Fighter bad. And what’s worse than a Street Fighter movie but an unnecessary, unwanted sequel fifteen years after the franchise’s heyday, starring a TV actress and lacking a plot? Yes, it’s Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li. One has to think that 20th Century Fox had this absurd idea […]
One would think that after The Marine Hollywood would have decided that John Cena wasn’t cut out for movies, but the professional wrestler is back, this time to save his wife from the hands of an evil mastermind, in 12 Rounds. If that sounds like the plot of The Marine only more absurd, you’re not […]
When I saw the previews for Dark Streets, I was intrigued. It looked like a darker Moulin Rouge meets Chicago, a smoky musical thriller set in the underworld of New Orleans. Unfortunately, reality is often much less exciting. Dark Streets stars Gabriel Mann as Chaz, a playboy and nightclub owner who finds his life spinning […]
Cameron Diaz and James Marsden star in The Box, a thriller about a married couple who come home one day to find a box sitting on their front step. Scary, right? Right! The box has a button in it – a big, red, scary button. And if you press the button, someone in the world […]
Watch the trailer for the upcoming HBO mini-series The Pacific, presented by Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg. The series, which debuts in 2010, takes a look at the Pacific part of World War II much like Band of Brothers did to the European piece. Hopefully you figured that out on your own. The Pacific looks […]
John Travolta knows how to play memorable villains. He was intense in Face/Off, entertaining in Broken Arrow and mind blowing in Battlefield Earth. Just joking about that last one, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be excited to see the crafty Scientologist back on the dark side – and squaring off against his most worth […]
I went to go see The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 at the Regal Meridian in downtown Seattle tonight with my buddy Tom. Tom, a college roommate and one of my best friends, is one who you should go to the movies with not at all, depending on your movie watching preferences. There’s nothing […]
Paper Heart looks amusing enough, and this new video clip from the movie has pushed me over the edge. Watch this faux interview with Charlyne Yi and alleged actor Paul Rust. The interview is pretty uncomfortable and entertaining at the same time.
If you haven’t already watched the new Red Band movie trailer for Thirst, watch it now. The movie looks amazingly good, and as f**ked up as it looks, you know it’s going to be even more f**ked up than it looks. Why? Beacuse it’s from Park Chan-wook, the director of the incredibly cool but disturbing […]
