  Gordon-Levitt and Wilson join Portman
Posted by: Mike on Apr 30th, 2009 Leave a Comment »

I’ll admit it. I’ll see anything Natalie Portman’s in.  Not because she’s the greatest actress alive, but because she’s just likeable.  Though the only movie I’ve seen with her in it more than one time, was V For Vendetta, because that’s a bad-ass movie.  I loved Garden State but have never revisited it, mainly because I don’t think it’d hold up in a second viewing.

With that said, her next (indie) project is called Herser, which I have no idea what it means.  Two more reasons just were announced to make me want to see that:  Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Rainn Wilson.

In my opinion, Gordon-Levitt is entirely too underrated as an actor. (See The Lookout.) He deserves more credit, and more big roles than he gets.  Just because he started out on television doesn’t mean he doesn’t have any acting chops.

The other reasons, Rainn Wilson. That’s right, Dwight K. Schrute.  Need I say more?

Herser is a story that centers on a loser twentysomething who invades the life of an awkward 13-year-old who is living with a pill-popping father and grandmother.

Principal photography starts on Monday, in Los Angeles.

  Zemeckis starts his own Roger Rabbit rumor
Posted by: Mike on Apr 30th, 2009 Leave a Comment »

I think people are taking this way out of context, but here’s the quote

I’ll tell you what is buzzing around in my head now that we have the ability—the digital tools, performance capture—I’m starting to think about ‘Roger Rabbit

Now, everyone with a movie blog is reporting that Robert Zemeckis is planning on making a sequel to Who Framed Roger Rabbit?.

That’s certainly not what he said, read the quote again. He’s thinking about it.  The chances of it actually being made into a movie, at this point, are pretty slim.

When he’s quoted again, saying that the studios are thinking about it. That’s when we can start to get excited.  For now, take a step back, calm down, and go back to posting your pictures of Megan Fox, because that apparently qualifies as “movie news” to some people.

  Wolverine Alternate Ending Details
Posted by: Mike on Apr 30th, 2009 6 Comments »

I’m sure by now you’ve heard that Wolverine will have three different endings, depending on where you see the movie.  This isn’t a ploy to get you to drive all over the country to get to see all three of them.  Rest assured the “movie” only has one ending.

You’ll sit through Wolverine in its entirety before the “alternate” bits happen.  These very short endings come after the credit, and are reportedly all just ties in to whichever movie they decide to make next.

They’re not important to the story of the film you’ve just watched.  It’s just the studio’s idea to open the door for the next movie in the franchise, of which there’s apparently three different ones.

I’ve spoken with a few people that have seen the endings already, and the feedback I’ve gotten is pretty negative about all three.  They’re being referred to as “sucky ending 1”, “less sucky ending” and “ending that didn’t suck as much as the other two.”

I plan on checking out the film on Saturday morning, and will report back as to what I thought after that.  I’m not super excited about it, because I didn’t really love the X-men trilogy, but the trailer looks decent enough to go check out.

  Saw VI Official Plot
Posted by: Mike on Apr 30th, 2009 Leave a Comment »

I know, you’re thinking the same thing I am. “What the hell? Another one?”  And the answer is simple: as long as people keep paying to see these (now) ridiculous movies, Lionsgate will keep making them.

This year will mark the sixth in a row that we see a Saw movie. And this year’s plot apparently spins off of last years (which was the first I’ve skipped):

Special Agent Strahm is dead, and Detective Hoffman has emerged as the unchallenged successor to Jigsaw’s legacy. However, when the FBI draws closer to Hoffman, he is forced to set a game into motion, and Jigsaw’s grand scheme is finally understood.

What about you? Any intention on giving Lionsgate your $10 for the sixth installment?

  Bale on next Batman
Posted by: Mike on Apr 28th, 2009 Leave a Comment »

Christian Bale was recently interviewed about the upcoming Terminator movie, and of course the interviewer had to sneak in a question about the next Batman movie.

When asked if he’d do another, Bale responded

Will we do a third movie? It’s got to be the right story. You can’t make something like ‘The Dark Knight’ and then come out with something disappointing.

I would like it if people say, ‘You’ll never make a good third movie.’ I say, ‘OK, let’s make a third movie in that case, let’s prove them wrong. But that’s just me. The fact is, I have to! I’ve signed up! Chris doesn’t. So I’m in a bit of a fix if he says he doesn’t want to!

As of yet, Christopher Nolan still hasn’t signed on to direct, or write the third movie.  I have no doubt, though, that he will.

  Peet joins Gulliver’s Travels
Posted by: Mike on Apr 28th, 2009 Leave a Comment »

The most recent addition to Gulliver’s Travels is Amanda Peet.

I know what you’re thinking, “Oh god, another remake?!” Yes, another remake. The typical Hollywood tale, take a classic, throw a bunch of stars at it, and hope it makes money.  Do not come up with something original.

The cast now includes Amada Peet, who joins Jack Black, Emily Blunt, Jason Segel and Chris O’Dowd.

Filming has already begun, and Gulliver’s Travels is scheduled for a June 4, 2010 release.

  Post Grad Trailer
Posted by: Mike on Apr 28th, 2009 Leave a Comment »

Someone sent me this, and not knowing what it was, I watched it. Surprisingly, it looks cute. Though deep down, I’m sure it’s a chick flick, and will be the same as every other chick flick ever made, but that’s okay.

Alexis Bledel is cute, and somewhat funny in the trailer for her upcoming Post Grad. Check out the trailer below
