R2D2 in Transformers 2

Did you guys see R2D2 in STAR TREK earlier this year? Well he was there. Apparently now you can find him in TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN too. TheForce.net reports: There's an R2-D2 flying around in there somewhere," revealed Scott Farrar, the film's visual-effects supervisor, who also worked on the "Star Wars" episodes "Return of the Jedi" and "The Phantom...

The Twins are on Bay

I personally didn't find "the twins" that offensive when I was watching TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN . I thought they were annoying and completely unnecessary and they killed scenes all by themselves and if they didn't kill a scene they only let it survive through an immense suck-based form of brinkmanship. But yes, I can see the argument. Anyway, turns out they were all Michael...

Paul blog launched

You can keep up with everything that's going in production on PAUL by checking out the official blog over HERE . Not too much is known about the film yet, save for that it is directed by Greg Mottola (SUPERBAD) and follows two comic book geeks as they travel across America, played by the outstanding Nick Frost and Simon Pegg, who also wrote the script together. There isn't yet a vast...

Darabont talks 451

I swear to God this happened. I will swear on family members. A director friend of mine, for whom I had written before, wanted to bounce ideas off of me for a low-budget alien invasion film. And I suggested basically the exact conclusion that would later be the much-lauded ending of THE MIST. So now I hate Darabont because I am jealous of all of the praise he got for it. Obviously, I don't...

Depp is awesome

It's nice to hear about big Hollywood celebrities being cool every now and then. So here we have one of the biggest, in Johnny Depp, being extremely cool to a waiter. He was chilling out at a restaurant recently with Marion Cottilard and director Michael Mann, and a bunch of other folks in town for the PUBLIC ENEMIES premiere, when he tipped $4,400. Said the waiter: "He had visited...

Transformers hits $60M

TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN has broken the record for biggest opening day ever for a Wednesday release, easily eclipsing HARRY POTTER AND THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX, which grossed $44.2M back in 2007. In fact, TF2 made so much money that its $60.6M was good enough for second all-time, $7M short of THE DARK KNIGHT, which was released on a Friday, it should be noted. I actually...

Cloudy, Meatballs poster

BELOW you can find the poster for CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS . Andy Samberg and Anna Faris provide the voices for the adaptation of the beloved children's book by Judi and Ron Barrett about a town where food falls from the sky like rain. I'm not exactly sure where I stand on this thing, so I'm gonna let it pass me by. You've paid Anna Faris' fee and you're not gonna put her physically...

Lotsa new posters!

My good friend Bart-Rene was at the Cinema Expo in Amsterdam recently, and he took a bunch of pictures of the posters that were being debuted over there. You can check 'em out by clicking BELOW for the full gallery. Although if you have any affinity for dragons, probably don't bother because the one we're seeing in the poster for HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON is pretty weak. They should have gotten...

Four join Invention

Hottie Camilla Belle, Craig Robinson, Johnny Knoxville and Heather Graham have joined Kevin Spacey in the upcoming comedy, FATHER OF INVENTION. In the film, a humble inventor-turned-egomaniacal billionaire (Spacey) spends time behind bars when one of his inventions goes awry. Upon release, he is seeks to rebuild his reputation and fortune but finds that easier than salvaging his...

Depp reveals projects

Pretty good move by MTV here: they hand Johnny Depp a card with a bunch of projects he has been linked with recently and he marks down next to them whether or not they're actually happening. As you can see, DARK SHADOWS is a go, with long-time collaborator Tim Burton involved, although at the moment not in a directing capacity. I've left one off of the top, too, so click ABOVE to...

Pegg's Paul pics

Simon Pegg has given a bunch of pictures to Peggster.net , of behind-the-scenes shenanigans on the set of PAUL. Greg Motola's (SUPERBAD) film about two comic book geeks that travel across America, starring Pegg and partner in crime Nick Frost features an all-star comedy cast, and a script written by the two leads.

Buy Blade Runner's home

For $15 million you can buy Deckard's house in Ridley Scott's BLADE RUNNER. As you know, the house (real name "Ennis House") is only briefly seen as Harrison Ford drove up to it but the general block-type design was also incorporated into the sets that were used for the interiors. And the house is pretty famous in the movie world, given that it was used in THE HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL,...
