‘The Smurfs Movie’ Logo Tease

The Smurfs are those creepy little blue guys, right? So there's a movie now I guess.

Daddy Day Camp writers David Stem and David Weiss do the screenplay and Colin Brady (Everyone's Hero) directs. Columbia Pictures is exposing the Smurfs Movie logo at the Licensing International Expo 2009 next week and thanks to ComingSoon.net, I can show you a sneak peek below of it!

The Smurfs Movie comes into theaters December 17th, 2010.

‘Up’ Lands in Top Spot-Box Office Results: May 29-31

Up soared this weekend, grossing an estimated $68.2 million! WOW! Did you know that was more than WALL∙E's debut ($63 million)?

Pixar movies have always had huge opening weekends. They're all-time highest was 2004's The Incredibles, closely followed by Finding Nemo. The average opening for Pixar is about $51.4 million and Up surpassed that immensely.

Last weekend, Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian grabbed #1 with about $54.2 million. Shawn Levy's historical-comedy fell 53% this weekend to $25.5 million.

Drag Me to Hell got outstanding reviews along with Up. However it came in third place and managed to get $16.6 million. Drag Me to Hell is director Sam Raimi's "return to horror" and comparatively, he bounced back. His Evil Dead movies, whose fans probably made up 50% of the audience, grossed $2.4 million in 1983 with The Evil Dead; $6 million with Evil Dead 2 in '87; and $11.5 million for Army of Darkness in 1993. But sometimes box office results don't matter a great deal if a movie is legit good. So, Drag Me to Hell: cult classic or simply the third spot opening weekend? With its jokey name and amazing reviews, I have to say cult classic.

In fourth place, Terminator Salvation still doesn't seem to be marketing as well as expected. This weekend it fell over half of its $42.6 million debut and ended up with $16.1 million.

Star Trek this weekend certainly earned its title as one of the all-time highest-grossing movies domestically ($209.5 million in 24 days!). Trek's voyage the last 3 days snatched up $12.8 million.

Here are the weekend estimates according to studio estimates Sunday-

  1. Up…$68.2 million
  2. Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian…$25.5 million
  3. Drag Me to Hell…$16.6 million
  4. Terminator Salvation…$16.1 million
  5. Star Trek…$12.8 million
  6. Angels and Demons…$11.2 million
  7. Dance Flick…$4.9 million
  8. X-Men Origins: Wolverine…$3.9 million
  9. Ghost of Girlfriends Past…$1.9 million
  10. Obsessed…$665 thousand

A Chick in ‘Dicks’?

Kevin Smith's last movie Zach and Miri Make a Porno didn't "make" any money at the box office last fall. But he's returning now with a cop comedy called A Couple of Dicks. Seann William Scott and Adam Brody are already set to star in it; same goes for the main characters, Bruce Willis and Tracey Morgan. Now Slashfilm.com have reported that Ana de la Reguara (the nun from Nacho Libre) will be a woman the two police officers save and who may also help them come across huge cash in a drug front.

With Smith directing, the movie is also written by the Cullen brothers, Robb and Mark. A Couple of Dicks starts filming next week in New York and scheduled for a February 26th, 2010 release.

‘The Adventures of TinTin’ Announces a Due Date

Comic book The Adventures of TinTin will always to me be known as the book that no one ever checked out at the library. When I heard it was being made into a movie, I was shocked! How can they make a TinTin full feature-length film? But once I heard that Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson were behind it I started to go with the flow with this one, not slam production ideas, trailers, and posters. It was only when I discovered that Edgar Wright was one of the writers for the 3D spectacle that I really got pumped for it. Wright, if you're unaware, wrote and directed Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead (figures, since Simon Pegg and Nick Frost star in this) and also starred in Son of Rambow. However Spielberg's last movie (which happened to be Indiana Jones 5) was a disappointment. Although Peter Jackson's last major directorial was King Kong, and that was pretty sweet!

Along with Pegg and Frost, the cast include Daniel Craig, Jamie Bell (Defiance) and Andy Serkis. Kathleen Kennedy produces (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull) along with Spielberg and Jackson. The title of the movie is now officially The Adventures of TinTin: Secret of the Unicorn.

So on to the release date: it's December 23, 2011. WHAT? How long does post-production take, Spielberg? It's May 30th, 2009; can't we have it this winter?

‘Final Destination 4’ Poster Exposed

The new 3D Final Destination: Death Trip poster was shown yesterday and it looks pretty freaking cool! But the title is now simply The Final Destination. Apparently New Line Cinema did the exact thing Fast and Furious did except they added the "the" to the heading.

In FD4, death visits the race track this time. What could the plot be about? The death of your wallet after gambling all your saving? OOH!!

Still no matter how dumb it sounds, movies like these tend to surprise (Drag Me to Hell, for example, received amazing reviews) and my friends and I rather enjoy crap like this.

The poster shows a mirror breaking the reflection of a girl with a skull's jaw for a mouth. Check it out!

The Final Destination 3D comes to theaters August 28th.

Numero Uno Teaser for Pixar’s ‘Toy Story 3’ and 14 High-Res Pictures

About 3 weeks ago tomorrow, I saw Up. Before Up I was among the first people in the world to check out the first official Pixar teaser for Toy Story 3. I raved about it upon seeing it, and I'm still raving now that it's been officially released today, May 29th (the day Up officially opens in theaters, how 'bout that?).

I've always loved Pixar and DreamWorks (however March's Monsters vs. Aliens left me disappointed, same with Madagascar 2) movies, but my favorite among both of the studios had to be Toy Story. That was pure genius! A bunch of toys that come to life when people aren't looking. And we know that this hasn't borrowed the idea from anybody since it was released in 1995, long before similar Night at the Museum came in 2006. What else I loved about Toy Story was that it was directed by animation god John Lasseter and written by him, Andrew Stanton (writer/director, WALL∙E), Pete Docter (writer, WALL∙E, director, Up) and Joe Ranft (writer, Cars, A Bugs Life). Producing credits went to Steve Jobs. Tim Allen was Buzz Lightyear, Tom Hanks Woody…

The only problem I fear is the quality and general funniness of a third sequel. I was looking forward to Shrek the Third in 2007 and that bombed.

But on to this teaser! I love it! Woody and the rest of the gang attempt to create the threequel's logo only to be upstaged by Buzz. It's not much, but God does it get you pumped for next year's Pixar film after Up ends. In addition to the trailer, there are also 11 new stills from it. Guess what'll be my screensaver for the next year (well, year and 20 days)!

Enjoy the eye candy of a preview below and click on the picture on the right to view the other 10 of the bunch.

And you can bet I'll be following this movie up until its release June 18th, 2010!

Green-Band and Red-Band Trailer Out Now for ‘The Goods: Live Hard Sell Hard’

Waiting for the next Adam McKay movie? So am I, and The Goods: Live Hard Sell Hard, starring Entourage's Jeremy Piven, is neither directed nor written by him. However, Will Ferrell does produce.

The only reason I thought that The Goods was from Adam McKay was because in the trailer it says in bold white letters "From the guys who brought you Tallegada Nights and Step Brothers", a similar caption McKay used in Step Brothers and Talladega Nights trailers.

Piven is a used car salesman who gathers up other automotive dealers to turn the liquidator event into an explosive sequent. Also predicting that he sells drugs; in the trailer saying speech-like that he has "the goods" (hence the title).

It looks a lot like Observe and Report or Pineapple Express; a violent pack of junkies who go on a hilarious rampage. Did I also see Gary Cole and Ed Helms in the trailer as well? Epic.

So for all you people out there waiting for the next Adam McKay film, you'll have to wait for Worst Friends along with yours truly. Sadly, that movie so far away that there's not even a release date for it yet.

Check out the green-band trailer below and the red-band here. The Goods: Live Hard Sell Hard hops onto the big screen August 14th.

DreamWorks New Animated Marvels: 2010-2012

It's Thursday May 28th, my friends, and I'm sure that you're all revved up for Up premiering tomorrow (check out my early review here). Want some more juicy news in the animated world? DreamWorks, the movie company who officially proved themselves capable of quality last summer with Kung Fu Panda have told Variety about the movie line-up for next year all the way to 2012.

So, as you've probably heard by now, given the success of Kung Fu Panda (an Oscar nod and a $631.9 million worldwide box office total later), DreamWorks has decided to make a sequel. The new title is Kung Fu Panda: The Kaboom of Doom. June 3rd, 2011 is the release date (competing with Pixar's Cars 2, which opens 3 weeks later). It once again stars Jack Black as Po.

2010 is How to Train Your Dragon, based off of the book by Cressida Cowell. This stars Jay Baruchel (one of the roommates from Knocked Up, awesome) with fellow Jonah Hill and McLovin himself, Christopher Mintz-Plasse.

Then in the same year, a movie called Oobermind starring Tina Fey (sweet) and Robert Downey Jr. The movie revolves around Downey Jr.'s character, a super-villain who ends up finding himself bored after defeating his life-long foe hero Metro Man. No info on who Fey will voice yet. Oobermind was originally supposed to be a live-action film called "Master Mind" and brought up by Ben Stiller's studio Red Hour Films. The release now will be on November 15th, 2010. Shrek 4 (now called Shrek Forever After) will come out sometime next year as well.

One source says 2010; another says 2012 for a debut date, but nevertheless, Shrek spin-off Puss in Boots is coming. The release date has not yet been set for it, although it will star Antonia Banderas, who portrayed the feline in the animated trilogy. Salma Hayek will play his love interest.

Along with Kung Fu Panda 2 in 2011, DreamWorks also plans to release The Guardians based off of the upcoming book series that centers on a team of holiday heroes: the Easter Bunny, Tooth-Fairy, Sandman and I'm guessing Santa Claus? The info on this is not yet available, but I'll update you when that leak is released. 2012 (yes they've got it planned that far ahead) delivers a third Madagascar. It got unfunny after the lazy Escape to Africa last year and the Nickelodeon series The Penguins of Madagascar.

For DreamWorks' fall release for '12, there's The Croods (about Cavemen). Unofficial dates but promises are Truckers and Super Secret Ghost Project. Variety notes that all of these movies I mentioned will be shown in 3D projection.

That's a lot to process. Hope I didn't get your blood pumping too much before you go to bed tonight.

Don't forget to check out Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs July 1st.

Vanessa Hudgens Leaves Disney with ‘Bandslam’-New Trailer and Pics

I thought that her career was done when she texted boy-toy Zac Efron some inappropriate pictures of herself. Well now she's back with the coming-of-age dramedy Bandslam. Does this just not scream "ABC Family TV movie" to you?

Obviously, Hudgens isn't venturing out to explore her "other" talents (if she has any) by doing the same kind of movie as what made her a star, High School Musical like Zac Efron. He left Disney and proved that he could make it in the topsy-turvy world of Hollywood without a cartoon mouse by his side. Last month's 17 Again debuted at #1 opening weekend with $23.7 million and worldwide has almost reached the coveted $100 million mark. Efron is also set to star in a Johnny Quest movie with Race to Witch Mountain star Dwayne Johnson and director Andy Fickman.

Anyway, back to Bandslam. It's about a battle of the bands; that's the easiest way to describe it. Director Todd Graff is pretty much a nobody. He only got special thanks in Wristcutters: A Love Story. Graff along with Josh Cagan (Undergrads) wrote the screenplay. Bandslam stars along with Hudgens Friends Monica Lisa Kudrow, who seems to only have a small part in this, as she did in January's Hotel for Dogs; also Alyson Michalka, another Disney star.

Check out the new trailer (released today) below along 11 new images from Bandslam clicking on the image to the right.

It's out August 14th. I really can't decide what to think of this movie yet!

Soft-Core Porn with Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson of ‘New Moon’

If you haven't heard about it by now (which is highly unlikely), Lainey Gossip has leaked some set photos from New Moon with Edward and Bella (Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart).

The stills are from the epic attempted suicide scene of Edward in which he exposes himself to sunlight. And in this case, that makes sense in both forms of the word. Bella then of course tries to stop him and boom, soft-core teen porn!

Click on the photot below to see more, courtesy of Lainey Gossip. You're welcome, girls.

New Moon hits theaters on November 20th.

A New Announced ‘Buffy’ Movie Missing an Essential

Dollhouse. Firefly. Angel. These are some of the hit television series that Joss Whedon has had throughout his career. But none of them can compare to Whedon's classic Buffy: The Vampire Slayer (although I hear Dollhouse is great!)

Today, a movie plan was announced. One so shocking it left everyone confused, mouth ajar: a new Buffy movie was in the works…excluding Joss Whedon. Um, hello? This dude frigging made
Buffy, they can't just make another movie without involving him! That's like holding the Superbowl and telling the Patriots' star quarterback to sit on the bench! Not right.

However, Whedon is not pissed at all (at least not publicly). In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly via email, when asked his opinion on the new Buffy movie, he simply said "I hope it's cool."

But Whedon has too much on his plate right now to worry about this anyway. The first season of Dollhouse just ended and he's currently filming the horror flick The Cabin in the Woods due out next year and the horror/thriller Goners due in theaters sometime in 2011 (the official release date has not yet been announced).

Stupid idea. Buffy without Joss Whedon. Why not remake E.T without Steven Spielberg? No! Wait; forget I said any…damn it!

‘Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel’ Logo Teaser

2007's hit Alvin and the Chipmunks was…well, a hit. And 20th Century Fox just can't leave a hit well enough alone for too long, mind you! So what do you get? Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel. Cute.

I remember hearing about this movie a while back but ignored it, thinking it was just another direct-to-DVD release (imagine my surprise). Now some people hate Alvin and the gang and some people love them. There's really no common ground. I saw the first one when it was in theaters and I enjoyed it a great deal, however not enough to make another (but honestly, who didn't see that coming?). I'm not a big fan of sequels, either. The only sequel that was better than or equal to the original was Shrek 2 and Toy Story 2 (but I was disappointed with 2007's Shrek the Third and hoping that Toy Story 3 doesn't do the same for me).

The Squeakquel once again stars Jason Lee (one of my favorite actors from My Name is Earl and Heartbreakers, however I hate him in this), Justin Long (Alvin, I know, right?), David Cross (same story as Lee) and Jesse McCartney. But now they're adding someone I was just thinking about today-Anna Faris. No, not like that!

Faris, most recently in Observe and Report, just can't seem to find a role that fits her right. She'll play one of the "Chipettes" along with Christina Applegate.

Tim Hill will not return to direct the sequel (nice, man, keep writing Spongebob, you rock!), 28 Days director Betty Thomas will. Monsters vs. Aliens writers Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger will join the original writers Jon Vitti, Chris Viscardi and Will McRobb for the screenplay.

The 30-second teaser is just Theodore, Alvin and Simon squeaking the 20th Century Fox theme in those "über-cute" voices they do, and after the exciting performance we see the same logo they had for the first movie except the words 'The Squeakquel' are stamped across it.

Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel is released Christmas Day. Competing with Sherlock Holmes and the untitled Nancy Meyer project are we? Well you'll never win-eh, screw it, of course they will.

Check out the teaser below.

The Daily Mail Releases ‘Robin Hood’ Set Photos

I've been hearing about the Ridley Scott's Robin Hood movie for a while now, but now I'm actually starting to get into it.

The Daily Mail has posted photos from production in Bourne Woods, Surrey from earlier this week.

Robin Hood stars Russell Crowe, Vanessa Redgrave, Cate Blanchett, Scott Grimes and William Hurt. Crowe plays Robin of Loxley and the movie tells of his life. Blanchett is the love interest Maid Marian, Grimes is Will Scarlet and Hurt is William Marshall.

Robin Hood comes to theaters May 14th, 2010. Click on the photo below to view more pictures from the set and to read the article on The Daily Mail's website.

‘Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus’ 3 New Clips

The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus looks like a more interesting Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Plus writer/director Terry Gilliam wrote and directed Monty Python and the Quest for the Holy Grail while David Fincher (director of Curious Case) did bomb Zodiac before Benjamin Button.

The recent Cannes Film Festival film was deceased Heath Ledger's official last film, not
The Dark Knight as so many people seem to think. But none of the three clips below show much of Ledger's character, or any of the three main characters, too, for that matter. Where are Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell? Instead they only show Lily Cole's Valentina.

Watch the three clips below from French site Commeau Cinema. Also note the carriage driver from the first clip. Now that's even creepier than Button was as a baby. Ha!

New Bruce Willis ‘Surrogates’ Trailer

Which of these does this remind you of more- the Fox show Dollhouse or the video game series The Sims? Humans control robots and do whatever the hell that they want without fear of consequences for their actions.

Surrogates is about just that, except now for some reason when the robot dies, the human controlling it does as well. I don't watch Dollhouse, but isn't that basically the gist of the show? I used to play The Sims before I auctioned it off on eBay, however, and I was the lazy human. Anyway, Surrogates stars Bruce Willis as a cop who is forced to actually leave his machine to investigate the murders for the first time in years.

Oh, here we go again! Bruce Willis, you're always a freaking cop! The Die Hard movies, Planet Terror, Sin City…if only you didn't look so damn cool playing one.

Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines director Jonathan Mostow does exactly that for Surrogates and Michael Ferris and John D. Brancato (fresh off Terminator Salvation) write the screenplay. The movie is based off of the graphic novel of the same name by Robert Venditti and Brett Weldele.

Surrogates is due out September 25th. Check out the trailer below from MySpace; it's pretty odd…

SURROGATES trailer in HD

Full Trailer for Shane Acker’s ‘9’

Sorry this is kind of late guys-

The full trailer for Shane Ackerman's 9 was released on May 21st. And I got to say, this has potential to be my favorite movie of the fall!

In the trailer, we hear the astounding voice of Christopher Plummer saying things like "We had so much potential", about the human race. Plummer, fresh from voicing Charles Muntz in Up (out Friday), is joined by Elijah Wood, John C. Reilly, Jennifer Connelly, Martin Landau and Crispin Glover as some of the star-studded cast.

Shane Acker, the writer/director of 9, was nominated for an Oscar in 2006 for his animated short by the same title. Tim Burton produces, too. This is going to be so sick!

9 is about a post-apocalyptic world where our entire world is threatened. Sounds like Battle for Terra, but…well, better!

Check out the trailer below courtesy of TrailerAddict and bask in its awesomeness!

Another ‘Inglourious Basterds’ Edit?

Quentin Tarantino's Nazi film Inglourious Basterds was screened at the Cannes Film Festival last week. But now before it is released nationwide, the writer/director says that he may edit the movie some more and even add a scene. Variety's 'Thompson on Hollywood' says-

"Brad and Angelina seemed happy, as did an ebullient Quentin Tarantino, although TWC's 50/50 partner on the picture, Universal, UPDATE: is talking to the filmmaker about returning to the editing room post-Cannes to make some trims edits that might include adding a scene, says Tarantino, who reminds that the film, at two hours 27 minutes, is well under his contractual final cut length of two hours 48 minute."

Inglourious Basterds is finally out in theaters on August 21st.

Will Smith Produced Hurricane Katrina Story

There have been countless movies about the Holocaust, World War I, Hitler, Nazism, etc. But Will Smith and Overbrook Entertainment, according to Empire Online, are making a movie about Hurricane Katrina hero John Keller.

That's a national tragedy in which I can't recall any major Hollywood movie ever being made. The movie will follow the five days of ex-Marine Keller's struggle to save the 150 people in his building during the 2005 disaster. The Rookie's
John Lee Hancock will direct. Empire also mentioned that Smith, along with producing, might portray Keller as well.

John Keller, the hero himself, told New Orleans's The Times-Picayune via NOLA.com of his actions, "It sure wasn't for money, it wasn't for recognition. It wasn't to be no damn hero. What made me stay was the old people. I just realized that nobody else in here could have gotten those people out. They would have sat in here for five more days. And they didn't have five more days."

This could be the next United 93. And with Smith producing (and maybe starring), this looks to be a great movie. As Cinema Blend says, "In the right hands…this could be just the kind of uplifting tale we need right now."

I agree completely. Can't wait!

‘Hot Tub Time Machine’ Hires a Counterpart Over 20 Years Younger

This is kind of creepy-Hot Tub Time Machine stars John Cusack, who's 42 years old. He travels back in time to get the one that slipped away: his high school sweetheart.

The girl will be played by Lyndsy Fonseca. Fonseca has starred in How I Met Your Mother, Desperate Housewives even The Young and the Restless. A little bit weird, sure, but the movie does have time-travel on their side, so…I don't know.

Hot Tub Time Machine is about three 30 or 40 something year-old guys who go back in time using a Jacuzzi. The Hollywood Reporter says that the movie is already filming, so Fonseca will have to start on it immediately. She just finished Kick-Ass with Nicolas Cage and the Holocaust true story Fort McCoy, both due out sometime this year.

The title already has me sold. Plus the director is Steve Pink (Accepted) and the screenplay is done by the guys that wrote Yes Man. But the title, HA!

‘Terminator’ Can’t Beat Stiller-Box Office Results-May 22-24

Terminator Salvation was no competition for the family comedy Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian starring Ben Stiller this Memorial Day weekend.

Opening Thursday and grossing an estimated $13.4 million, T4 was sure to be #1 at the box office. But the next day, Friday May 22nd when Museum officially hit theaters, Museum beat Terminator's $14.8 million with $15.3 million. So by Sunday, when results were announced, the winner by about $10 million was Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian.

Museum grossed an estimated $53.5 million, more than 2006's Night at the Museum's debut of $48.2 million, although it opened at #1 as well.

Terminator Salvation raised an estimated $43 million. Not as much at Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines made opening weekend ($44 million, only about a million off), but sure more than The Terminator's $4 million and Terminator 2: Judgment Day's $31.8 million.

In third place, Star Trek fell 49% to an estimated $22 million. Behind Angels and Demons ($21.4 million), Dance Flick, which was also released this weekend, managed $11.1 million. Not as much as previous Wayans' movies White Chicks ($19.7 million) or Scary Movie 2 ($20.5 million). And Dance Flick was sure as hell nowhere near the first Scary Movie's debut of $42.3 million.

Here are the weekend estimates according to studio estimates Sunday-

  1. Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian…$53.3 million
  2. Terminator Salvation…$43 million
  3. Star Trek…$22 million
  4. Angels and Demons…$21.4 million
  5. Dance Flick…$11.1 million
  6. X-Men Origins: Wolverine…$7.8 million
  7. Ghost of Girlfriends Past…$3.7 million
  8. Obsessed…$2 million
  9. Monsters vs. Aliens…$1.3 million
  10. 17 Again…$1 million

‘Terminator Salvation’ Doesn’t Exactly Do It

When the word 'Terminator' comes up in a conversation or on a late-night talk show, automatically Mr. Governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger and classic one-liners like "I'll be back" and "Come with me if you want to live" come to mind. Sadly, Terminator Salvation, the fourth film in the Terminator franchise, packs neither of those two things in this mess of a movie. Sure, it occasionally throws in a classic T1 or T2 quote, to make fans of the Skynet series go "Oh! They said that in Judgment Day!" to their friends (who for some reason are always clothed in something that has been praised at Comic-Con before), but unlike Star Trek, it just doesn't work.

Terminator Salvation stars Christian Bale as John Connor, son of Sarah Connor, in the year 2018. Skynet, the now self-aware computer program, has pretty much destroyed the entire human race in a post-apocalyptic Earth. Connor however wants to fight back, or "resist" the machines. So he forms a resistance team of survivors of the human genocide consisting of Blair Williams (Moon Bloodgood), Kyle Reese (Anton Yelchin), Barnes (for some reason, rapper Common) and John's girl, Kate (the cute Bryce Dallas Howard). Let's get one thing straight: two stars in Salvation rock. First, Christian Bale. Bale, the Dark Knight himself, can always make a bad movie good, turn rain into a rainbow. His scruff, Batman-like voice builds up drama and suspense for what's around the corner next in every scene that he lights up in.

The second, a small little role played by Helena Bonham Carter. She plays Dr. Serena Kogan, one of the Skynet leaders. Whenever I see Carter, I immediately recall Sweeny Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. I loved that movie, and she never disappoints in anything that she's ever done (especially Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, great!) Although she doesn't really have anything to give her two-cents in, Carter tries her best. And you got to love her for that.

Director McG (yes, strange name) is the other moderately decent part about T4. He directed both of the remakes of Charlie's Angels and is currently an executive producer for NBC's Chuck and the CW's Supernatural. I heard great comments about him pre-going to see this. I was, however, mislead. There was a lot of unnecessary shaking of the camera and such of that origin in Terminator Salvation. I was hoping for a Cloverfield style of directing, but it was comparatively more like a bad version of Quarantine. And Quarantine was a bad version of Quarantine.

A second-person view of a tragedy unfolding with lots of explosions and panic would have been fantastic in this kind of flick, but nope. There wasn't any of that.

Terminator Salvation is a disappointing summer movie.
A TV show on Fox and 3 movies later might not be enough of a sign that the Terminator series has come to an end, but when you have to address Arnold as "Mr. Schwarzenegger", than it's definitely time to stop.

2/5 stars.

Green-Band Trailer for ‘Bruno’

It's no secret that Sacha Baron Cohen is making an official sequel to 2006's success Borat called Brüno, about a gay Austrian supermodel.

We've seen the red-band trailer (check out the blog archive for that post) and now we have a trailer appropriate (well, sorta) for everyone.

In the trailer (below) we see Brüno doing everything that he did in the restricted trailer, subtract a few dildo jokes, a stripper sequence and the real truth of how Cohen got the African baby.

You can watch the trailer below courtesy of MTV, and check out Brüno in theaters July 10th. Hell, I know I'll be there.

Bazooka Joe Pops Out a Movie

Who knew bubble gum could be so entertaining without the 'Bazooka Joe' product? A piece of cotton-candy flavored deliciousness with a comic that we've seen a million and one times before bit it's still funny!

Michael Eisner took over the Topps Co. (now the Tornante Co.) a while ago and is now apparently turning the ever-aging baseball card/comic series into a feature film. Yup, you heard me right. A Bazooka Joe movie. I'm thinking this will bomb big time.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Eisner and his company have got newcomer Mark Hammer writing. Aren't we supposed to be cutting back? Can't we cut back from bad movies?

‘The Last Airbender’ in the Movie Theater????????

I remember a little show on Nickelodeon called Avatar: The Last Airbender. I also remember that the show was extremely boring to kids and adults. My 2 year-old brother and 5 year-old would groan in disgust whenever the bald kid with the arrow on his head's face would appear on the screen. I, too, despised the concept of it.

It was gone from TV for a while (it ended last year) and I completely forgot about the animated toon.

Imagine my surprise when I heard that the first picture of the dopey "airbender" Aang will be in USA Today (out tomorrow on newsstands). Warner Bros. is apparently turning the kids series into a movie-with M. Night Shyamalan is directing, writing and producing.

Slumdog Millionare star Dev Patel plays Prince Zuko and 12 year-old regional karate kid Noah Ringer will be Aang.

Not a Shyamalan fan and certainly not an Avatar: The Last Airbender fan. Check out the first still that Warner Bros. releases in USA Today tomorrow-

‘Avatar’ Trailer Rumored to be Shown Before ‘Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen’

According to MarketSaw, the trailer for James Cameron's Avatar will be shown before this June's smash Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. This seems a bit odd considering Avatar is a 3D flick, and Transformers 2 isn't.

I'm personally stoked, I've been wanting a taste of James Cameron's new film for freaking EVER!

Check out Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen in theaters June 24th.

SNL Sketch “MacGruber” Movie?

Saturday Night Live movies were always funny…to some people…okay, to a certain few. But that few included me! When I saw Hot Rod and Baby Mama, I never forgot them to this day. There's also the classic Wayne's World and Wayne's World 2, which I've seen repeatedly on Comedy Central every weekend. The late-night weekend sketch comedy show has always been a huge success for NBC, maybe even one of their biggest.

In the "MacGruber" sketches, a parody of the show MacGyver, Will Forte plays the lead with his sidekick (usually whoever was hosting SNL that week) as they try to disarm a bomb with everyday household objects but MacGruber is soon distracted by his own personal thoughts.

Producer of Saturday Night Live (and not to mention the mega-hit Tina Fey comedy 30 Rock) Lorne Michaels said to The Hollywood Reporter about production of the movie:

"It would have to be in the summer because we are back in production in the fall…We're still in discussions."

Should it be made? Perhaps not. But as old as SNL is getting, it always seems to surprise us with something so shocking that it drags us back in (I'm referring to The Lonely Island, guys). So as to an entire 90-minute movie based off of 5-minute sketches…Nah. Although Kristen Wiig starred in the original sketches. Hmm…Now I'm thinking maybe.

‘Earth’ Disneynature Planning Two Sequels

You know me. I've wanted to see Disneynature's Earth for quite some time now, but decided to check out Star Trek instead the one weekend I had the chance to (don't get me wrong, Star Trek was INSANITY!) It came and left from my movie theater…

But if you have the same problem as me, fret no longer-they're planning two more movies after Earth.

Earth grossed over $80 million worldwide (although only $29 million reported in the U.S) as of yesterday, May 19th. Disneynature has hired the directors of the original, Alastair Fothergill and Mark Linfield, to do two more flicks. The titles are Chimpanzees and African Cats: Kingdom of Courage. The Hollywood Reporter said that African Cats is right now being filmed in Kenya and Chimpanzees have yet to start filming, but will be set in the Ivory Coast and Uganda. That one will be in theaters sometime in 2012.

However CinemaBlend.com, where I found this information, neglected to report on next year's movie by Disneynature-Oceans. But I have to scoop on that thanks to IMDb and WorstPreviews.com, I found more info and even a trailer (click here to watch). Oceans will be a part drama/part documentary about the quickly disappearing life in the sea. Jacques Perrin and Jacques Cluzaud take directing and writing credits. Oceans is set for an April 22nd, 2010 (Earth Day, once again) release.

My Sister’s Keeper Poster Released via Twitter

My current read My Sister's Keeper is being turned into a movie. Actually, that's why I stated reading it, so I could review the movie better when I see it.

Warner Bros. has delivered the first official poster to us via a Twitter update! And it looks…strangely happy?

My Sister's Keeper is about a girl Kate who has leukemia. Her sister Anna has been donating bone marrow to Kate ever since she was born. But when she has to give her a kidney, she stops there. She sues her parents for custody of her own body. But can you tell that by looking at the poster? NO.

In the poster, the mother Sara (Cameron Diaz) is smiling with Anna (Abigail Breslin) while Kate (Sofia Vassilieva) is blowing bubbles. Misleading or just genius marketing? You tell me.

‘Sherlock Holmes’ First Trailer Online-And It Is Epic. Period.

We've all been teased with the buzz about Guy Ritchie's (the writer/director of RockNRolla and Madonna's ex) Sherlock Holmes for long enough. Robert Downey Jr. is in it and we're already sold. But how about an official poster and trailer, Mr. Ritchie? Well…one out of two isn't bad.

Yes, I'm talking about the first trailer for Holmes. You can't tell much about the plot by it, but damn it all, does it look cool! To me, it has the same feel as David Fincher's The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Christopher Nolan's The Prestige, only with more humor and Downey Jr. is shirtless. The plot is about Holmes and his sidekick Watson (Jude Law, looking like Robin to Batman) as they try to defeat a man who's plan is a threat to all of England.

Another star in here that I want to point out is Rachel McAdams. McAdams, most recently in the critically-acclaimed State of Play and the upcoming The Time-Traveler's Wife is Irene Adler, quoted as the "widely regarded…woman to outwit Holmes". Look at the trailer. She looks as hot as she did in Wedding Crashers! I mean, seriously, DAMN!

I honestly cannot wait any longer for Sherlock Holmes to come out! Damn you 20th Century Fox for teasing us with this awesome trailer!

Sherlock Holmes is due out Christmas Day. Check out the trailer below.

‘The Twilight Saga: New Moon’ Poster is HERE!!!

Emo/goth kids, pre-teens (a.k.a "tweens"), and shrieking Abercrombie and Fitch clad teens all have a smileon their face this Tuesday, May 19th, as the new poster for New Moon finally arrives after months of anticipation.

Twilight was a hit with the "iTunes" era last year. I even thought it was pretty decent. But with New Moon, the second book in Stephanie Myers highly-acclaimed vampire series, a lot has changed. First of all, the title. Notice the pre-fix The Twilight Saga. Sounds a bit corny, doesn't it? And the director of Twilight, Catherine Hardewick, does not return to direct the next fall smash. Studio Summit said that she was 'irrational' and 'difficult' to work with says an insider from Deadline Hollywood Daily. But she supposedly saved the movie from its, quote "trite plot and ridiculously cheap budget." (Bloody-Disgusting.com)Disappointing as that may be, most teens don't care who in the hell directs it. However if you are one of the few people who do care (first of all good for you), Chris Weitz (The Golden Compass, About a Boy. He was even an American Pie co-director (say WHAT?) ) will tackle the job.

On to the poster (see below and then read on!):

In it, we see Edward, Bella and Jacob. In New Moon, Edward suddenly leaves and Bella once again finds comfort in werewolf Jacob. The poster shows that. Bella is standing behind Jacob and Jacob back-to-back with Edward. So I'm thinking a fight between them over Kristen Stewart's character? DEATH!!

The Twilight Saga: New Moon opens in theaters November 20th.

‘Angels and Demons’ is #1…Meh?-Box Office Results: May 15-17

Angels and Demons got mediocre reviews from both fans and critics. But that didn't stop it from being #1 opening weekend at the box office! It rallied up an estimated $48 million. Disappointing, but…meh.

Previous chart-topper Star Trek fell 42% to $43 million. That's still awesome! Trek got great reviews from both fans and critics and it seems to be "prospering" rather well.

Coming in at third place is X-Men Origins: Wolverine. It fell 44% this weekend to an estimated $14.8 million. Looks like overall, Star Trek is destroying you, Wolverine.

Ghost of Girlfriends Past continues to fall even more this weekend. Its total was an estimated $6.9 million.

Obsessed's total was $4.5 million.

In other opening movie news, the Jennifer Aniston hot-topic Management made a mere $378,000.

The Brothers Bloom got $82,000.

Here are the estimated box office results from May 15th-17th as of Sunday-

  1. Angels and Demons…$48 million
  2. Star Trek…$43 million
  3. X-Men Origins: Wolverine…$14.8 million
  4. Ghost of Girlfriends Past…$6.9 million
  5. Obsessed…$4.5 million
  6. 17 Again…$3.4 million
  7. Monsters vs. Aliens…$3 million
  8. The Soloist…$2.4 million
  9. Next Day Air…$2.3 million
  10. Earth (2009)…$1.7 million

‘Sorority Row’ Teaser Poster

Sorority Row is just another college bloodbath movie.

The plot according to CinemaBlend.com is "When five sorority girls inadvertently cause the murder of one of their sisters in a prank gone wrong, they agree to keep the matter to themselves and never speak of it again, so they can get on with their lives. This proves easier said than done, when after graduation a mysterious killer goes after the five of them and anyone who knows their secret."

Prom Night nostalgia or more of a Friday the 13th recall?

The teaser really isn't that promising either (see below). It simply just shows an arrow and a knife crossing to form and 'X' and in red capital letters 'Theta Pi Must Die'. Oh, I get it, it rhymes!

IFC’s Tribeca Film Festival ‘In The Loop’ Awesome Trailer!

Critics are raving about the IFC film In The Loop since it debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival this year. This summer, the rest of America is going to get the chance to see what all the buzz is about!

British TV director Armando Iannucci's comedy, about a series of goofy and inefficient politicians on both sides of the Atlantic, opens in theaters in the United States in July. The movie is a spin-off of Iannucci's BBC series In The Thick Of It.

Where I first heard about this movie was movie site CinemaBlend.com. After reading Katey Rich's review of it, I wanted to go back in time, travel to California and see this thing!

I also saw a clip of the movie and, let me just tell you before you watch it here, it's pretty crude. Yet funny as hell!

The trailer only compliments the clip. It looks to be one of the funniest movies of the year, and I can't wait to give you guys my review of it when I finally get a chance to check this out this summer.

The only other British comedy that was as funny as this looks was Hot Fuzz. And that fucking rocked.

In The Loop opens in limited release July 24th. Check out the trailer below, courtesy of FunnyOrDie.com.

The writer is by Kim Fupz Aakeson (Little Soldier). No official release date is yet set in stone.

A ‘Primeval’ Movie by Warner Bros??

You've heard of the Sci-Fi series Primeval…right?

Me neither.

Well apparently it's broadcasted in the U.S on BBC America and the Sci-Fi channel, and now Warner Bros. wants to make it into a major movie production.

In the Primeval show, both futuristic and prehistoric creatures come through wormhole time portals and a team headed by an evolutionary scientist tries to close the hole and to stop the beasts. The series has had 3 seasons to date.

"There is a solid mythology to the series, but the movie has the dinosaur element of Jurassic Park and the time travel element of Lost, and it just feels like the kind of big movie that Warner Bros. does well," said Kerry Foster, a producer of the upcoming flick.

The series premiere of Primeval aired today. However no official release date has been released for the movie yet.

‘Up’ Another Trophy for Pixar, an Absolute Must-See-EARLY REVIEW!!

Pixar has come a long way since its breakout short The Adventures of André and Wally B. (check that and a lot of other shorts on the Pixar Short Films Collections-Volume 1 DVD, it's fantastic) Last summer's mega-hit WALL-E took home the Oscar for 'Best Animated Feature' at the 2008 Academy Awards. And now $530 million and counting on that film alone later, Disney's secret weapon Pixar is back with its 10th film, Up.

In Up, we meet Carl Fredricken (voiced to perfection by Ed Asner), a lonely old man who decides to fulfill him and his wife's dream of having an adventure by tying thousands of balloons to his house and flying to South Africa. But he soon discovers an energetic 9 year-old named Russell has snuck aboard.

A sad beginning may give off the wrong impression of Pete Docter and Bob Peterson's animated masterpiece. No spoilers from this critic,though, you have to experience everything yourself when it's released May 29th in theaters. But the funny thing about Up is that without even trying, it's a genuinely funny and cool movie. Previous year's Ratatouille and WALL-E were WAY to preachy for Pixar's targeted kid audience, however Up will turn your face red.

Along the way, Carl and Russell meet a dog 'Dug. Alpha' (who everyone out there can relate to) and a bird who cute-as-hell Russell calls "Kevin". Then, after one of the most epic battles in animated movie history, there's one of the best endings to a film that I have ever seen. Up is sincerely a modern marvel that people of all ages can enjoy, a marvel that you won't want to end. It tops this year's Monsters vs. Aliens in every way imaginable.

But is it the best Pixar movie? That's debatable. No matter how preachy or up its own ass it was with messages WALL-E or Ratatouille was, they still held a spot on my 'Favorite Movie' list on Facebook. As I said before, Up is really a laugh-out-loud movie that brings you back to a The Incredibles, A Bug's Life, Monsters Inc. (figures, it has one of the directors), heck, even Toy Story era. You can't narrow down the Pixar flicks to just one singular best. Once you see a Pixar movie, there's no going back. Up is just another 'A+' on the ever-expanding fridge of Disney.

From the dazzling Partly Cloudy short (as Pixar tradition) to the squirrel jokes with the dog, Up will be remembered as one of the best movies of the year. Will it win an Oscar like WALL-E did? I wouldn't be surprised. Don't miss out on this; it's an absolute must-see for everyone!

Pixar is brilliant and no one can top it. DreamWorks has tried time and time again, now so is Sony Pictures…Every way you look at it, Up is undeniably beautiful. Pixar's 10th film is one of their best. Once you give this one look, it's good enough to make you cry. It'll make you wonder where we'll be 10 films later. Genius.

5/5 stars.

Pictures and Videos of Me and Donald Evans, Vice President of Marketing for Pixar, at ‘Up’ Premiere!!

Last Saturday, May 9th, my friend and I went to the premiere of Disney-Pixar's new film Up!We also got to meet Donald Evans, the vice president of marketing for Pixar studios, and he agreed to let us take a picture with him! So here's just a gallery of some of the pictures I took and a few videos from the Q&A we got to see. Enjoy, and look for my early review of Up this weekend!

Hugh Jackman, Rachel Weisz and Robert Pattinson Join ‘Unbound Captives’

Hugh Jackman, Rachel Weisz and Robert Pattinson join the cast for the new drama Unbound Captives, Variety magazine reports. Captives is Madeline Stowe's directorial debut.

Gil Netter and Grant Hill produce. So far, they expect to start filming by the end of this year.

Stow turned down millions of dollars to turn her and her husband's, actor Brian Benben, script into a movie in 1993. But now with O.C Humphrey, Unbound Captives will finally be seen on the big screen!

Stowe would've played the woman whose husband is killed (now portrayed by Rachel Weisz) and her two kids kidnapped by a Comanche war party in 1859. She's then rescued by a frontiersman (Jackman). Robert Pattinson will play the son.

If you didn't like Pattinson as heartthrob Edward in Twilight and the upcoming New Moon like I did/do, you are probably starting to enjoy him a bit more now. He also stars in Little Ashes, which looks to be great as well.

Martin Scorsese to Direct ‘Sinatra’

Announced today, Universal Pictures has nabbed the film Sinatra from Mandalay Pictures for Oscar-winning director Martin Scorsese.

Tagging along the Departed award winner is screenwriter Phil Alden Robinson (Field of Dreams). The movie will tell the story of the famous singer Frank Sinatra.

"We have dreamt of making a movie about Frank Sinatra, and Marty Scorsese is undeniably the perfect vision keeper for this project," Peter Guber, Chairman of Mandalay Entertainment Group says. President of Mandalay Pictures, Cathy Schulman also said that "In addition to our excitement at having Marty in the director's chair, we are thrilled to be in business with Universal, the Sinatra estate, Warner Music Group and the talented Phil Alden Robinson on this project about one of our greatest entertainers."

"It's an honor to be involved in this film which will celebrate the amazing life and work of Frank Sinatra," Donna Langley, President of Production for Universal Pictures says. "With Phil Alden Robinson writing the screenplay and Martin Scorsese at the helm, we know that this first feature motion picture adaptation of Sinatra's extraordinary life is in the best of hands."

"My father had great admiration for the talent of the people he chose to work with, and the talented people who worked with my father had great admiration for him," raves Tina Sinatra. "It is personally pleasing to me that this paradigm continues with Marty Scorsese at the helm of the Sinatra film."

Guber and Schulman will produce with Scorsese. Former president of Worldwide Music Distribution at Warner Bros. Pictures, Gary LeMel, Tina Sinatra and Robinson will be credited as executive producers.

Major Cast Announced for Garry Marshall’s ‘Valentine’s Day’

The Hollywood Reporter says that New Line Cinema intends a huge all-star cast for the new romantic-comedy Valentine's Day. Garry Marshall directs.

The current negotiating cast is Julia Roberts, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel (not as a stripper, I'm guessing?), Jennifer Garner, Shirley MacLaine, Bradley Cooper and Ashton Kutcher.

Here's how the trade describes the plot outline-

-- Roberts is an army officer on leave from Iraq on a flight to L.A. Cooper, on the same flight, is a gay man whose lover is a closeted football player.

-- Kutcher is an owner of a flower shop who proposes to his girlfriend (Alba), only to realize he is in love with his close friend, played by Garner, who discovers her boyfriend is married.

-- MacLaine plays Roberts' mother, a happy retiree who reveals to her husband a long-ago affair.

-- Hathaway is an assistant working at the biggest talent agency in town and dating a mailroom assistant; Biel is a publicist unlucky in love (is there any other kind?) who has no date on Valentine's Day.

The gay football player, MacLaine's husband, the mailroom worker, a talent agent and a young boy looking to buy some flowers for his crush are major roles that info has yet to be released.

Quentin Tarantino Has Half-Written ‘Inglorious Basterds’ Prequel

In an interview with The New York Times, Quentin Tarantino said that he has half the script done for a possible Inglorious Basterds prequel.

Here's an excerpt-

Mr. Tarantino, who was born in Tennessee, said his childhood revenge fantasies centered more on the Ku Klux Klan. "But it's all the same," he said. "Once the Basterds get through with Europe, they could go to the South and do it to the Kluxers in the '50s. That's another story you could tell."

Not to mention a shelved subplot about African-American soldiers stuck behind enemy lines. "I have a half-written prequel ready to go if this movie's a smash," he said.

My opinion is that Mr. Tarantino should see how the upcoming Brad Pitt Nazi smasher (comedy?) plays out with both the critics and fans this summer before talking about a prequel. Although it looks fan-fucking-TASTIC!

Inglorious Basterds opens August 21st in theaters nationwide.

New ‘New Moon’ Teaser/Character Posters?

The highly-anticipated sequel to the mega-hit Twilight, New Moon, opens in theaters November 20th. And we've been waiting for an official poster as well. Coming close is the teaser poster.

According to Screenrant, these posters are just fan made. But The Playlist is saying that they're the new character posters for the teen flick. Which source is right?

You decide. Check out the posters and tell me what you think.

Full Gallery for Disney-Pixar’s ‘Up’

Disney and Pixar have released the full gallery for their new movie Up, which opens May 29th in theaters nationwide.

In Up, a 79-year old man seeks to fulfill his lifelong dream of going on an adventure by tying balloons to his house, only to find a Boy Scout stowaway.

I saw an exclusive screening of Up last weekend, and it was phenomenal. A definite must-see for the summer! So definitely, check Up out!!!!
