Harold and Kumar Come Together For Another Film

Harold and Kumar Come Together For Another Film
Get ready for another film in the Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle franchise. New Line has set a summer date on the third installment of the franchise.

New Line has set a summer start date on the third installment of the Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle franchise, with the Warner Bros-based company about to hire a director, and seriously considering doing the film in 3D. The film is Christmas-themed, giving Warner Bros a nice R-rated holiday release for 2011 or 2012. The biggest significance is that the start date signals the return of Kal Penn, who put his career on hold to take the position of associate director of the White House Office Of Public Engagement. The politically conscious actor gave up a lot to take the job--his doctor character, Lawrence Kutner, was killed off from the Fox drama House--but it was done with the understanding that he'd commit to the position for one year. As to the idea of leaving a prestige D.…

Big Daddy Kicks-Ass In This Trailer And Wonder Con Exclusive

Big Daddy Kicks-Ass In This Trailer And Wonder Con Exclusive
Man I can not stop watching this trailer, I thought to myself for a minute.  Who in the heck needs Batman when you have Big Daddy.

Big Daddy is the center of this clip, showing what a bad ass he is and how he completely destroys the whole warehouse without a blink of an eye.

Big Daddy, a former cop who, in his quest to bring down an evil druglord Frank D'Amico played by Mark Strong, has trained his eleven-year-old daughter to be the ruthless vigilante Hit-Girl.

But the con-exclusive poster for Big Daddy, with its slogan of "He's Watching You," is pretty creepy, and calls out for a "Ceiling Cat"-style meme.

Yeah, that's right, Nicolas Cage is watching you, um, doing whatever you're doing. And he'll be available to sign the poster on Saturday.


Another thing if you are making your way out to Wonder Con this weekend make sure to come and join me at 4:30 for the Kick-Ass panel in the Esplan…

New Trailer For "Salt" Starring Angelina Jolie

New Trailer For "Salt" Starring Angelina Jolie
I am not a big fan of Jolie having blond hair but I wouldn't kick her out of my bed that is for sure. Today we get the second trailer for the upcoming film Salt starring Angelina Jolie and Liev Schreiber.

As a CIA officer, Evelyn Salt (Jolie) swore an oath to duty, honor and country. Her loyalty will be tested when a defector accuses her of being a Russian spy. Salt goes on the run, using all her skills and years of experience as a covert operative to elude capture. Salt’s efforts to prove her innocence only serve to cast doubt on her motives, as the hunt to uncover the truth behind her identity continues and the question remains: “Who Is Salt?”

David Fincher Next Film To Be "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo"

David Fincher Next Film To Be "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo"
It was confirmed a while ago that David Fincher would direct  "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" is definitely Fincher's next film. Already adapted into an award-winning Swedish language trilogy, the English-language version is being produced by Scott Rudin at Sony with Steve Zaillian ("Schindler's List," "American Gangster," the original draft of "Moneyball") currently writing the script.

As we previously reported, Carey Mulligan was on the studio wishlist for the lead role of Lisbeth Salander but that seems to be as far as it's gotten. As Mulligan herself confirmed, she's not received any official calls regarding the role and we're not surprised considering the script isn't finished. From what we hear, Fincher wants an unknown for the lead role which would prove to be an interesting gamble for such a high profile project (not to mention a major c…

Secret Flynn Lives Meeting On Friday Night

Secret Flynn Lives Meeting On Friday Night
It is only two days away from Encomn International Press Conference At Wonder Con, the event will be held by Alan Bradley at Justin Herman Plaza this Friday night at 8PM. But before you attend that conference we got news of a small team of "Flynn Lives" supporters will be trying to make some noise before and during the press conference.

If you want to lend a hand to the "Flynn Lives" supporters then I have some exciting news for you. The Flynn Lives group is organizing what they're calling an "awareness campaign" and have announced a secret meet-up before the event for any and all Flynn supporters in the Grand Ballroom at the Hyatt Regency from 6:15PM to 7:45PM this Friday.

Anna Faris To Serve As Private Benjamin

Anna Faris To Serve As Private Benjamin
Private Benjamin is being recalled to serve her country again and this time the film may star Anna Faris as Benjamin.  The role that Goldie Hawn made famous in the 80's.

New line is working on a reboot of the film with writer Amy Talkington – who has already worked on a new version of ‘80s “classic” Valley Girl – in negotiations to pen the script.

There is no word yet is the film will be set in modern time or in another time frame. Hawn’s spoiled character, who is duped into joining the military when her rich hubby dies while consummating their wedding, is likely

According to the Risky Business Blog, producer Mark Gordon isn’t looking to thumb his nose at the men and women serving in the military, instead focusing on the empowering plot line and fish-out-of-water comedy. Legally Blonde in fatigues, then?

The Expendables Trailer Is Here

The Expendables Trailer Is Here
Man I feel like a little kid now. Just a throw back to the 80's action films, kick ass and ask their names later. And all three of the 80's action stars in one room. Arnold, Bruce and Sly in a movie together, who would have thought this could have happened. It only took 20 years but the dream did come true. I understand that they are only in one scene together but it is going to be worth the wait.

Original Tron Trailer Updated And Is Amazing

Original Tron Trailer Updated And Is Amazing
This is just amazing, this guy should be working in Hollywood in some capacity.  Here is an incredible fan made trailer for the 1982 Tron film.  Maybe this trailer will help some of the people out there that are still on the fence about the original  film and the sequel.

DrewboiX put this trailer together and made it look fantastic, it is more fast pace then the original and he gave it some amazing CGI effects, I love the the title images and the score isn't half bad.

The Hangover 2 Cast Is Ready To Go And Get A Huge Raise

The Hangover 2 Cast Is Ready To Go And Get A Huge Raise
With the sucess of The Hangover Warner Bros and Legendary Pictures had commissioned a script for another installment.  The film grossed  $467 million worldwide and the film became Hollywood’s biggest grossing R rated comedy ever.

I’m told that Zach Galifianakis, Bradley Cooper and Ed Helms will each be paid in the vicinity of $5 million against 4% of first dollar gross. Director/producer Todd Phillips will be paid around $10 million against 10%. For Phillips, there are also escalators and bonuses that insure if the sequel does anywhere close to the original’s $467 million worldwide gross, Phillips will not make less than his income on the original. That meter is still running, and it has passed the $50 million mark.

Why was The Hangover 2 such a difficult deal to put together? It was a perfect storm of leverage: the three stars made less than $1 million collectively on a film that became Hollywood’s biggest grossing R rated comed…

The Runaways Movie Review

The Runaways Movie Review By: Windy
Please make sure to stop by Windy's site to check out her adventures at the premiere of the film "Remember Me" and all things fun.


“The Runaways”, directed by Floria Sigismondi and starring Kristen Stewart, Dakota Fanning, Stella Maeve, Scout Taylor-Compton, Alia Shawkat and Michael Shannon, is the story of the 1970’s all-girl rock band that broke the rock and roll mold. There were no girl rock and roll bands at the time, and thanks to Joan Jett, The Runaways were born leading the way for future all-girl bands.


Jett, played by Kristen Stewart, bravely and casually approaches record producer Kim Fowley (Shannon) outside of a night club and states with conviction “I want to start an all girl rock band.” That’s all it took for the idea of The Runaways to be born.

From there, Jett, West (Maeve) and Fowley seek out the rest of the band, which includes Lita Ford (Taylor-Compton) and Cherie Currie (Fanning). Jackie Fox is not represented in th…

Japanese Trailer For The Last Airbender

Japanese Trailer For The Last Airbender
Here is the Japanese Trailer for The Last Airbender. Doesn't the  trailer just sounds cooler in Japanese. Maybe because it is something different then the movie guys voice that we hear on every trailer here in the states.

In the trailer we get more of  the visual side of the film from this clip, compared to the U.S. version. The film comes out on July 2nd here in the states and is released in Japan on July 30th. When I lived in the Japan they always got the movie about a month behind the release on base or in the states,  never could figure that out.

Rachel Weisz To Be Next Bond Villain?

Rachel Weisz To Be Next Bond Villain?
Could this be true, we can only hope that the sexy and talented Rachel Weisz could end up playing the villain in the upcoming James Bond film?  They in fact have been thinking Weisz could play the head of Quantum, the secret organization responsible for all the bad guy activity in the last two films. More than just another Bond babe, she’d be the mastermind pulling the strings behind everything that’s happened in Daniel Craig’s Bond movies so far, and the architect of James Bond’s suffering.

Now remember that this is just a rumor and has not been confirmed but the site we got this information from let us know that the information comes"a reliable, proven source who’s broken numerous, since confirmed stories." So take it at what it is a Rumor. But a good one if it does comes true.
