  Pirates 4 Rumor – Zac Efron?
Posted by: Mike on Oct 23rd, 2008 Leave a Comment »

Zac Efron has been quoted as saying:

At this point, it’s just a rumor.

This came in an interview with Ryan Seacrest, on his radio show.  What does that mean?  It means the franchise is going to die, because they probably are casting him.

The majority of actors who say “it’s just a rumor” have already been offered the part, and are in the process of negotiating terms, but don’t want to screw it up by saying something.

First, talks of Tim Burton directing, now Zac Efron directing?  Has Disney lost their goddamnedfreaking minds?  Tim Burton belongs off in his little world making weird movies with clay, and Zac Efron belongs playing a high school student until he’s 30.  Neither of them belong in, or around, a fourth Pirates movie.

  Mid-Week Entertainment Wrap-up

Sorry for the lack of updates this week, I’ve been working pretty heavily on a redesign for the site, which has taken up most of my free time.

To keep you occupied, in the meantime, here’s a recap of what’s going on, and some links to more stories:

  • There’s a whole bunch of new images from Saw V, which opens next Friday over at BloodyDisgusting
  • Sources say there’s more footage after the end of Max Payne, similar to the last Pirates movie and Iron Man.  Stick around until the credits are over for a hint of a sequel.
  • SlashFilm is reporting that Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland is going to be “more engaging/psychological”, by which they mean “stupid” and “annoying.”
  • A site I’ve never heard of, called MovieHole, says that someone greenlit a World of Warcraft movie, and a script is being penned. (link)
  • JoBlo has a pretty cool interview with Mark Wahlberg (link)
  • Lionsgate has said they’re not screening W in Texas. Hmm, wonder why?
  • Richard Donner has confirmed that plans to make The Goonies sequel are one again shut down.
  • LatinoReview has some new images from Star Trek, if you’re into that sorta thing. (link)

That’s about it for the last couple of days.  Back to work on the redesign I go.

  Burton Casts Red and White Queens for “Alice”
Posted by: Mike on Oct 7th, 2008 Leave a Comment »

It’s been made officially unofficial as of early this morning (super early this morning for me, since I’m on the West coast this week.)

Burton has cast, surprise surprise Helena Bonham-Carter as the “off with her head” Red Queen, in the upcoming live-action, stop-animation, CGI fest remake of Alice In Wonderland.

In a turning surprise, the White Queen will be played by Anne Hathaway.  After seeing Hathaway do an amazing job hosting SNL this past Saturday, I’m game to see just about anything she’s in.  If you didn’t catch the episode, you should download it, or watch the highlights on YouTube, because it was a great week.

  Burton and Bonham Carter’s Baby Not Indiana

Although we previously reported that Helena Bonham Carter and Tim Burton’s new baby girl was named Indiana Rose, it seems we were mistaken along with everyone else.

Reports now say that her name is Nell.

  Surprise. Surprise – Depp and Burton Team Up Again
Posted by: Christine on Jul 28th, 2008 Leave a Comment »

It’s no secret that Tim Burton and Johnny Depp have giant man-crushes on each other, and there’s nothing wrong with that. The pair has brought us Sweeney Todd, Corpse Bride, and the unforgettable Edward Scissorhands. Now it’s being reported that Depp will appear in Burton’s adaptation of Alice in Wonderland as the Mad Hatter.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Depp pops up in the film, but so far it’s missing from his IMDb page.

Alice is supposed to start shooting next year and is set for release in 2010.

  Did It Bomb? Weekend of 12/21/07
Posted by: Katy on Dec 27th, 2007 Leave a Comment »

Well, guys! The holiday rush hasn’t quite ended at the malls, but there was a bit of a pre-Christmas one this past weekend over at the cinema!

I gave you my predictions, so now let’s find out how they turned out!

Here comes the final edition of DIB? for 2007!

Charlie Wilson’s War: Tom Hanks as one flashy politician who teams up with a couple of people to covertly assist Afghanistan against Russia. Co-starring Philip Seymour Hoffman as a government agent and Julia Roberts as an equally flashy Texas socialite, it gives us an in-depth view into the whole deal.
Will It Bomb? Three A-list actors in a plot that could have been a film before a film was even thought of! It’ll end up in the high-to-middle section of the Top 10.
Did It Bomb? Hey! It managed to crawl up the ranks and make it to the #4 slot, earning $9.62 million.
Outcome: Score! 1 out of 5

National Treasure: Book of Secrets: In this sequel to the hugely popular flick, Nicolas Cage returns as treasure hunter Benjamin Franklin Gates, and this time he’s out for more than gold, jewels, or precious artifacts! He wants to see what kind of involvement one of his ancestors allegedly had with the Lincoln assassination plot, and he gets into business that he probably shouldn’t be dabbling with.
Will It Bomb? The first movie did very well; we needed a new action/adventure; this was the only sequel released this weekend. This will get into at least the Top 3.
Did It Bomb? Absolutely not! Obviously, a stroke of luck wasn’t the only thing clinching this picture’s success! It shot up to #1, making some cash! $45.5 million, to be exact!
Outcome: Score! 2 out of 5
