4 X-mases poster

A Christmas comedy starring Vince Vaughan and Reese Witherspoon is coming out called FOUR CHRISTMASES . This is the weird poster. Why are they wrapped around in a ribbon like that? Beats the f*ck out of me. The movie is about them trying to visit all of their parents, who are separated, on Christmas. Will they succeed? Who cares!

Who is making Lullaby?

So today I kind of sat down for a chat with a writer named Chuck Palahniuk. He was doing press for his upcoming movie CHOKE (which features a hottie giving Sam Rockwell the ol' reverse ride), and of course, being the intrepid scoop hound that I am, asked him about upcoming adaptations of his work. There was the recent story that his book RANT was optioned, but this is what I heard...

Matinee Uber-Edit

The only thing I like better than movie montages (the kind they show at the Oscars) is picking my nose and eating it (not kidding). Unfortunately, when I watched the video BELOW, my nose was cleaner than Danny Tanner's kitchen and I was unable to orgasm. It was still an enjoyable experience, I'm just saying it could have been better. The montage was edited by a man named Sean Grady, and it's a...

Brian Austin Nigma?

In another world, in another time, if Brian Austin Green even thought about being the Riddler in the sequel to THE DARK KNIGHT, I would feed his family to rabid beavers. Just for thinking about it. So why then, when he goes ahead and actually tells MTV that he thinks he’d actually make a great Riddler, do I sit back and do nothing? Well, because he’s seen Megan Fox naked. He’s seen her...

Joker without makeup

Ever since seeing THE DARK KNIGHT, I've been slightly infatuated with Heath Ledger and his performance in the film. Today I caught myself on his IMDb page, staring at photos of him without makeup on, trying to imagine him as the terror I saw on screen. Couldn't really do it. Well the following helps a little, and I'm thinking it's real. I searched for clips as Ledger as the Joker on YouTube,...

Farewell Ebert & Roeper

I'm a big fan of the term "end of an era." I use it all the time. When a Simpsons episode ended last week, I referred to it as the end of an era. When I was done pissing today, it was the end of an era. But this truly is, the end of an era. Today, Richard Roeper announced his departure from the wildly popular syndicated movie review show "Ebert & Roeper," citing changes in the show...

Man on Wire poster

So I saw THE DARK KNIGHT last night, and from now on everything will be known as pre-TDK and post-TDK. I loved it, but I thought the affair between Alfred and Lucius Fox was far to unbelievable for my liking. In other news, here's a poster for an upcoming doc called MAN ON WIRE, about a French tight rope walker named Phillipe Petit who in the mid-seventies, walked on a rope between the twin...

Destruction of NYC

New York's been destroyed in movies over and over again. Then, at the beginning of this century, it kinda got destroyed for real. Not very cool. At all. But that hasn't stopped directors from taking a CGI-assisted bite out of the Big Apple, with movies like CLOVERFIELD and THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW depicting a Manhattan in tatters. Now Gawker has presented us with a list of 15 clips of this fair...

Meet PosterboyNYC!

The cool thing to do in New York seems to be to deface subway movie posters. You can't walk by a poster that doesn't have a fake mustache on it, or a character with their eyes gouged. It was funny the first time dickheads, but now you just be dissin' my boy Hancock. But not all of these anti-establishment street artists (ha) are unoriginal creeps. There's a specter stalking the NYC subways...

Wild Things future

Despite its title, no one has any clue WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE , until now. Amidst many reports of reshoots and re-castings, and studio unhappiness over Spike Jonze’s decidedly dark version of the classic children's novel, the LA Times recently spoke with Warner Bros. studio chief Alan Horn, who had this to say about the project: "We've given him more money and, even more...

Cooper & Helms hungover

When I saw that Bradley Cooper (WEDDING CRASHERS) and Ed Helms (THE OFFICE) were cast in a comedy called HANGOVER, I was stunned that Warners was shooting my biopic without my knowledge. Then I read what it was about—3 buddies who go to Vegas for some pre-wedding festivities where the groom goes missing—and realized that it wasn’t actually a biopic, since I don’t have any friends. The film...

Stars are geeks too!

For years, US Weekly has been trying to convince us that stars, they’re just like us! But seeing Kate Hudson holding a Starbucks cup doesn’t prove anything. But what about a list of the top ten celebrity comic book geeks? That’s right. Despite their millions of dollars, fancy cars, and ability to bed whomever they please, some of them would throw it all a way at the chance to sniff an...
