Angelina Jolie To Play Cleopatra?

Angelina Jolie To Play Cleopatra?

USA Today is reporting that , Producer Scott Rudin (No Country For Old Men) has bought the rights to the upcoming biography CLEOPATRA: A LIFE by author Stacy Schiff and the person they’re considering to play the last Egyptian Pharaoahs is none other than Angelina Jolie.

Synopsis of the book:

“Her palace shimmered with gold but was richer still in political and sexual intrigue. Cleopatra, the wealthiest ruler of her time and one of the most powerful women in history, was a canny political strategist, a brilliant manager, a tough negotiator, and the most manipulative of lovers. Although her life spanned fewer than forty years, it reshaped the contours of the ancient world.

At only 18 years old, Cleopatra was already one of history’s most remarkable figures: the Queen of Egypt. A lethal political struggle with her brother marked her early adulthood and set the tone for the rest of her life; a relationship with Julius Caesar, forged while under siege in her palace, launched her into a deadly mix of romance and strategy; a pleasure cruise down the Nile followed, a child, and a trip to Rome, which ended in Cleopatra’s flight. After Caesar’s brutal murder, she began a nine-year affair with Mark Antony, with whom she had three more children. Antony and Cleopatra’s alliance and attempt to forge a new empire spelled both their ends.

The subject of gossip and legend, veneration and speculation in her lifetime, Cleopatra fascinated the world right up to her death. In the 2000 years since, myths about the last Queen of Egypt have been fueled by Shakespeare, Dryden, and Shaw, who put words in her mouth, and by Michelangelo, Delacroix, and Elizabeth Taylor, who put a face to her name. In Cleopatra, Pulitzer prize-winning biographer Stacy Schiff accomplishes a feat that has eluded artists and writers for centuries: capturing fully the operatic life of an exceptionally seductive and powerful woman, whose death ushered in a new world order. “

Jennifer Love Hewitt Wants The Role Of Wonder Woman

Jennifer Love Hewitt Wants The Role Of Wonder Woman

Jennifer Love Hewitt really,really wants to play the role of Wonder Woman, whenever Warner Bros. gets off their ass and makes the film. Not only does she want the part, but she's "fighting so hard" to get it, according to a statement quoted by WENN. "I really want to play Wonder Woman," she continued. "I'm obsessed with Wonder Woman."

This isn't the first time that Hewitt express interest in the role. Last summer she told MTV News that she wanted the role "really badly" and pointed out that she's curvaceous and athletic enough and that the gold bracelets would look great on her wrists.

We recently heard that Warner Bros. still promises to make Wonder Woman, claiming it's still in active development, though the studio couldn't give any sort of timeline.

DR. Who And McLovin Join The Cast Of "Fright Night"

DR. Who And McLovin Join The Cast Of "Fright Night"

David Tennant, best known for starring in the BBC series “Doctor Who,” and Christopher Mintz-Plasse are joining the cast of “Fright Night,” DreamWorks’ remake of the cult 1985 film.

Tennant and Mintz-Plasse join Anton Yelchin as Charlie, a teen convinced that his new neighbor (Colin Farrell) is a vampire. Toni Collette is the teen’s disbelieving mom, who falls under the vampire’s spell.

Tennant will play Peter Vincent, a character who in the original movie was played by Roddy McDowall as the host of a late-night horror show. In the remake, he’s a Las Vegas magician whose show revolves around horror-movie imagery. Vincent claims to be a vampire expert, but when the teen turns to him for assistance, he’s less than helpful.

Mintz-Plasse is playing Evil Ed, Yelchin’s friend who feels slighted that Charlie has left his nerdy past behind and thus joins the vampire’s coven.

The movie marks the first real foray into America for Tennant. He starred in the NBC pilot “Rex Is Not Your Lawyer,” but it did not get picked up.

 Mintz-Plasse, meanwhile, is continuing to show that there is life after McLovin, the character he played in his acting debut in “Superbad.” He recently was onscreen as the Red Mist in “Kick-Ass.”

F. Gary Gray To Direct "Kane and Lynch?"

F. Gary Gray To Direct "Kane and Lynch?"

F. Gary Gray has emerged as the top director to take the reins of “Kane and Lynch,” the Nu Image/Millenium video game adaptation that stars Bruce Willis and Jamie Foxx.

It seems that Gray and Millennium are in talks for him to helm the film. If Gary does take the gig it will be the second time he has worked with Foxx. They worked together on the thriller “Law Abiding Citizen,” grossed over $73 million last fall.

Stunt coordinator and second unit director Simon Crane was helming the project but vacated the director's seat in May due to creative differences.

The game follows Kane (Willis), a death row inmate who, along with a schizophrenic killer named Lynch (Foxx), is sprung by Kane's former team so that he can retrieve a stolen fortune. Kane travels to Los Angeles, Japan and Cuba, with Lynch acting as the team's watchdog in order to save his wife and daughter.

Transformers 3 Plot Line And Of Course In 3D

Transformers 3 Plot Line And Of Course In 3D

With shooting underway on a third movie and plans to debut next summer, Michael Bay and Co. acknowledge missteps with the last one and aim to upgrade the shape-shifting robot franchise with a more coherent story, less goofball humor and a pledge that characters who die will stay dead. It will also be in 3-D.

"I'll take some of the criticism," says Bay, standing at a set built to resemble a dilapidated nuclear reactor. "It was very hard to put (the sequel) together that quickly after the writers' strike (of 2007-08)."

Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura says the rush strained the plot: "We tried to do too many things in the second movie, which didn't give enough time in any one of them. We were constantly jumping to the next piece of information, the next place."

Bay is not one for mea culpas, but he says he can do better. "This one really builds to a final crescendo. It's not three multiple endings," the director says.

Bay calls the second film's villain, The Fallen, "kind of a (expletive) character." The new movie's foe is certain to make fans of the original '80s incarnation smile: Shockwave, the robot cyclops-turned-laser-cannon, who became dictator of their home world of Cybertron after the other Autobots and Decepticons journeyed to Earth.

"One thing we're getting rid of is what I call the dorky comedy," Bay adds. So the twins, the two bumbling, slang-spewing robots? "They're basically gone," he says, though John Turturro returns for comic relief.

The new film features Sam Witwicky (LaBeouf) taking his first tenuous steps into adulthood while remaining a reluctant human ally of Optimus Prime. "Shia has this great line: 'You know, I've saved the world twice, but I can't get a job,' " di Bonaventura says.

Megan Fox, who played Mikaela, was dropped just before shooting, so LaBeouf's character also has a new love interest, played by Victoria's Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.

"I love Megan and I miss the girl," LaBeouf says, flecked with fake blood and dirt during a break between shooting. "But Sam and Mikaela became one character, and here ... you have discovery again from a new perspective."

Plot details are under wraps, but it delves into the space race between the U.S.S.R. and the USA, suggesting there was a hidden Transformers role in it all that remains one of the planet's most dangerous secrets. "The movie is more of a mystery," Bay says. "It ties in what we know as history growing up as kids with what really happened."

While Optimus Prime, Megatron and even Sam all have died and been resurrected, di Bonaventura says this film will have no do-overs: Die, and that's it.

Bay hints that there may be a lot of that. "As a trilogy, it really ends," he says. "It could be rebooted again, but I think it has a really killer ending."

New The Scorcerer's Apprentice Trailer

New The Scorcerer's Apprentice Trailer

Disney has released a new movie trailer for their upcoming action adventure film, The Scorcerer's Apprentice.

The new trailer isn't much different from anything we've already seen but it offers some more footage of the Sorceress being played by Monica Bellucci. The film also stars Jay Baruchel, Alfred Molina, Teresa Palmer and Toby Kebbell.



Synopsis:

Balthazar Blake (NICOLAS CAGE) is a master sorcerer in modern-day Manhattan trying to defend the city from his arch-nemesis, Maxim Horvath (ALFRED MOLINA).

The sorcerer gives his unwilling accomplice a crash course in the art and science of magic, and together, these unlikely partners work to stop the forces of darkness. It’ll take all the courage Dave can muster to survive his training, save the city and get the girl as he becomes THE SORCERER’S APPRENTICE.

James Cameron Main Man To Direct 'Final Destination 5'

James Cameron Main Man To Direct 'Final Destination 5'

Steven Quale, the second unit director for "Avatar," has been tapped to helm "Final Destination 5," the latest installment in New Line's horror franchise.

The "Destination" movies, which center on the idea that one can't cheat death, usually begin with a group of people who survive a catastrophe because of the intervention of one person who has a premonition. Death, however, will have its due, and the survivors end up expiring in elaborate Rube Goldberg-like fashion.

Eric Heisserer ("The Thing") wrote the script, and Craig Perry is producing the pic, which has a September 13 start date in Vancouver.

While most movie series by the fifth installment are getting long in the tooth, "Destination" seems to have found new vigor following the unexpected success of the fourth installment, which overcame bad reviews and grossed more than $182 million worldwide on a budget of about $40 million.

New Line, following the 3D lead of parent Warner Bros., went out to helmers who are proficient in that world as well as seeking someone with technical prowess, with Quale reportedly vying for the job along with Bradley Parker, the second unit/visual effects director on "Let the Right One In" remake "Let Me In," and Charles Gibson, the second unit/visual effects director on the "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies.

Quale is a James Cameron protege, having started as a PA on the director's 1989 sci-fi movie "The Abyss." He was the second unit director for Cameron's "Titanic" and co-directed the filmmaker's undersea doc "Aliens of the Deep." Insiders say that Cameron even lobbed a call to New Line toppers to give them his recommendation.

Les Grossman Film Is Confirmed

 Les Grossman Film Is Confirmed

Paramount and MTV Films announced Today that Les Grossman, the foul-mouthed movie producer played by Tom Cruise in "Tropic Thunder," is getting his own movie.

Cruise will produce the "Tropic Thunder" spin-off with Red Hour Films' Ben Stiller and Stuart Cornfeld. Michael Bacall ("Scott Pilgrim vs. the World") will write the screenplay.

“Les Grossman's life story is an inspiring tale of the classic human struggle to achieve greatness against all odds," said Stiller in the announcement. "He has assured me he plans to quote, ‘F**king kill the sh*t out of this movie and make Citizen f**king Kane look like a piece of crap home movie by the time we are done.’ I am honored to be working with him.”

When asked what the screenplay was about, "Grossman" responded: “To quote my great friend Kirk Lazarus (Robert Downey Jr.), ‘I don’t read the script, the script reads me.’”

"Everything I learned in this business, I've learned from Les. I started out as his assistant, and from the first day he threw his desk at me when I got his lunch order wrong, I have loved him like a father," joked Paramount president Adam Goodman. "I am forever grateful to Ben [Stiller] and Stuart Cornfeld and their ability to secure his highly-coveted life rights."

Jessica Simpson To Star An Metroid Film?

Jessica Simpson To Star An Metroid Film?

Remember this is just a rumor and nothing has been confirmed yet. But the word around Hollywood is that Jessica Simpson is slated to play Samus Aran in the upcoming Metroid movie that is supposedly directed by Uwe Boll?

Look, as cool as it would be to have a new Metroid movie, this is doubtful for so many reasons. Simpson isn't exactly a great actress and Uwe Boll is a complete idiot when it comes to realizing video games on the silver screen (or DVD in most cases). On top that, wouldn't Nintendo actually tap some people with talent to make a film based on a major franchise?

But this is what we are hearing:

"Actress Jessica Simpson is rumored to have secured the role of Space Bounty Hunter Samus Aran in a Hollywood version of a Nintendo game. In the game, Metroid, the hero controls Samus on her goal to rid the world of energy sucking beasts called Metroids. Think of it as a cross between Aliens and Dracula.

Simpson is excited to restart her movie career and is reportedly taking part in the selection of Samus' love interest. Simpson's publicists has also confirmed that she will be contributing to the plot. "Ms Simpson feels the plot is too complex and would like to move the plot closer to it's core story of love and adventure.


“Metroid is a series of science fiction action-adventure video games conceived by designer Makoto Kanoh and artist Hiroji Kiyotake and produced by Nintendo. Metroid chronicles the missions of bounty hunter Samus Aran who protects the galaxy from the depredations of the Space Pirates and their attempts to harness the power of fictional organisms such as the eponymous Metroids. It is noted for having one of the first female protagonists in a video game, and for its nonlinear gameplay. Metroid combines the platforming of Super Mario Bros. and the exploration aspect of The Legend of Zelda with a decidedly darker atmosphere.”

Michael Fassbender As Magneto Or Villain In Spiderman Reboot?

Michael Fassbender As Magneto Or Villain In Spiderman Reboot?

Michael Fassbender had a hot year last year, in Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglourious Basterds,” and this years "Jonah Hex".

Now Fassbender is in–as his “Basterds” David Nivenish character might say, a bit of a pickle.

He’s being pursued, I hear, for two different Marvel comics movies. Matthew Vaughn is said to want him for “X Men: First Class.” Fassbender would play young Magneto, the precursor for Ian McKellen’s later character. James McAvoy is already signed to play Young Xavier.

At the same time, Fassbender is being pursued to play the villain in “Spider Man 4,” aka “No Toby Maguire Here.”

Two different movies from Marvel, but two different studios: Fox for the first, and Columbia for the second. He can’t do both.

Either way, Fassbender can’t lose. He’s got four films coming out in 2010 alone including “Jonah Hex.” By the time he’s a supercomic villain, he’ll be a bona fide movie star.

Mortal Kombat "Rebirth" Trailer

Mortal Kombat "Rebirth" Trailer

Speculation has run rampant today with the debut of a short "Mortal Kombat" film (subtitled "Rebirth") that made its way anonymously to YouTube. Now, Latino Review reports that the film is, as many theorized, a test for a potential R-rated film reboot of the video game franchise.

If this film doesn't get made after this trailer then someone in Hollywood needs to go down!



The short is directed by Kevin Tancharoen, the director of last year's Fame, and features a cast that includes name actors like Michael Jai White (Jax), Jeri Ryan (Sonya Blade), Matt Mullins (Johnny Cage), Lateef Crowder (Baraka) and Ian Anthony Dale (Scorpion) with fight choreography by Larnell Stovall.

Though there is no guarantee that these actors will play the characters in a feature film version or even that a feature film will actually happen, the short is already a huge success online.

Les Grossman Film In The Works

Les Grossman Film In The Works

Tom Cruise's fat-suited appearance as Hollywood playa Les Grossman was admittedly one of the funniest and most surprising aspects of Tropic Thunder, but are you ready for the full ninety minutes? Cruise, following his appearance in character as Grossman at this year's MTV awards. told E Online backstage that a Les Grossman movie is definitely in the works.


"We're working on it," he apparently "beamed". "Yup, we're definitely working on it."



So perhaps this explains Grossman's rather belated reappearance: Tropic Thunder was two years ago now, after all. Grossman danced live with Jennifer Lopez, and pre-filmed skits saw him bawling out Robert Pattinson and helping create the iconic Cruise-dancing-in-his-pants moment from Risky Business.

Indiana Jones To Go Old School For Indy 5

Indiana Jones To Go Old School For Indy 5

Harrison Ford's final outing as Indiana Jones will be "emotional and exciting" as the franchise heads back to its roots after a badly received fourth instalment.

Ford is well-known for his portrayal of the archaeologist and adventurer, and has agreed to reprise the role one last time.

Indiana Jones 5 will begin shooting next year, and much of the plot line will be centred around the Bermuda Triangle, an area over the North Atlantic Ocean where a number of aircraft are said to have disappeared.

"George (Lucas) and Steven (Spielberg) have been working on a script and it's almost there," a source explained.

"Harrison is on stand-by for filming next year. This looks like being an emotional and exciting conclusion to the franchise, with Indy facing his biggest challenge yet."

The last film in the franchise, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, was released in 2008 and performed well at the box office, but was savaged by critics.

Shia LaBeouf played Indiana's son Mutt Williams, and he will also appear in the new instalment.

Movie bosses have assured fans the film will stay true to the series' roots, and won't contain lots of state-of-the-art special effects.

"Shia LaBeouf has a central role again as Indy's son but this will be a blockbuster made in the old fashioned way rather than the CGI efforts of the last movie," the source added.

Stephen Herek will direct the film from a screenplay by playwright S.J. Roth. “The Chaperone” is produced by WWE Studios Executive Vice President Michael Pavone and executive produced by WWE Studios Vice President David Calloway.

Ray Bradstone (PAUL “TRIPLE H” LEVESQUE) is the best “wheel man in the business,” but he is determined to go straight and be the best parent he can be to his daughter, Sally (ARIEL WINTER), and make amends with his ex-wife, Lynne (ANNABETH GISH). As Ray struggles to find honest work, his old bank-robbing crew, led by Phillip Larue (KEVIN CORRIGAN), offers him one last job. He agrees at first, but changes his mind at the last second leaving the crew without a driver. Ray decides instead to serve as a “chaperone” for Sally’s school field trip. When the robbery goes awry, Larue blames Ray and chases the school bus all the way to the Museum of Natural History in New Orleans. Ray must deal with Larue, while supervising Sally’s class on what becomes one of the craziest school trips ever.

WWE Superstar Paul “Triple H” Levesque is ex-con Ray Bradstone, a former getaway driver determined to turn his life around and establish a relationship with his estranged daughter Sally. Levesque is a thirteen-time World Champion. He debuted in 1995 with World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc. as Hunter Hearst-Helmsley™ and has become one of WWE’s most popular and successful Superstars of all time. Levesque has appeared in the film, “Blade: Trinity,” as a vampire enforcer and just finished filming WWE Studios’ “Inside Out” with Michael Rapaport, Parker Posey and Bruce Dern.

Ariel Winter portrays Ray’s teenage daughter, Sally, who wants nothing to do with her father after his release from prison. Winter currently stars as Alex Dunphy in the popular and critically acclaimed ABC series, “Modern Family.” She recently completed the films “Nic & Tristan Go Mega Dega,” “Opposite Day” and “Duress.” Her other film credits include “Speed Racer,” and voice work for “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs,” “Afro Samurai: Resurrection,” “Horton Hears a Who!,” “Ice Age: The Meltdown” and “Curious George.”

Kevin Corrigan plays Phillip Larue, who pursues Ray after the botched bank robbery. A graduate of the Actors Studio, Corrigan is familiar to many for his roles in “American Gangster,” “The Departed,” “Superbad,” “Pineapple Express,” “True Romance,” “Goodfellas,” “Bad Boys,” and the 2009 Oscar-winning short, “The New Tenants.” His television credits include portraying slacker Eddie Finnerty in the series “Grounded for Life,” recurring roles on “Damages” and “Fringe,” and guest starring roles on “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” and “Californication.”

Annabeth Gish is Lynne, Ray’s former wife, who has moved on with her life. Gish most recently portrayed Eileen Caffee on Showtime’s critically acclaimed series, “Brotherhood.” Gish’s other credits include Elizabeth Bartlett Westin, the eldest daughter of President Bartlett (Martin Sheen) on “The West Wing” and as Special Agent Monica Reyes on “The X Files.” She made her film debut as a teenager in the 1986 film “Desert Bloom,” and went on to star in the films, “Mystic Pizza,” “Wyatt Earp,” “Nixon,” “Beautiful Girls,” “Double Jeopardy” and “The Celestine Prophecy.”

Director Stephen Herek made his debut as the writer-director of the feature film “Critters.” He also directed the blockbuster “Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure,” as well as the films, “The Three Musketeers,” “Mr. Holland’s Opus,” “101 Dalmatians,” “Holy Man” and “Rock Star.”

"Most Wanted" Sandra Bullock And Ryan Reynolds

"Most Wanted" Sandra Bullock And Ryan Reynolds

The creative team behind "The Proposal" -- stars Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds, director Anne Fletcher, writer Pete Chiarelli and producers David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman -- are reuniting for "Most Wanted," an action comedy project that sold to Universal over the weekend.

The story sees Bullock as a criminal suspect with Reynolds as an FBI agent who is supposed to be escorting her to court when the two are ambushed and forced to go on the run. The project is described as having a tone similar to that of "Midnight Run," Universal's 1988 action comedy starring Robert De Niro and Charles Grodin. Universal is developing a sequel to "Midnight Run."

The pitch originally went into Disney, the company that made "Proposal," the hit romantic comedy made via its Touchstone label that grossed more than $317 million and was part of Bullock's comeback year. Since the movie's June 2009 release, however, Disney has undergone a regime change and the company is de-emphasizing Touchstone, preferring to focus on the core Disney brand and hoping to make movies that can be taken advantage by the wide spectrum of the company.

The Goonies Turns 25 Today- A look Back

The Goonies Turns 25 Today- A look Back

Goonies turns 25 today so I thought I would share with you all why this movie holds a place in my heart..  I have yet to meet someone that doesn't like Steven Spielberg and Richard Donner's The Goonies. This movie was released on June 7th 1985.  It's amazing that after 25 year of watching The Goonies over and over again I still enjoy it every single time! I still get that same feeling of when I was a kid, it totally takes me back to the good ol' days. I've been able to share this movie with my kids, and they love it just as much as I do!

Here are a few reason why we all love Goonies so much:

Sean Astin as Mikey


The 1980s were the zenith, or perhaps the nadir, of "sassy" kids in movies and on TV. Hands on hips, dripping with designer whatnot and Day-Glo fashions, with soundbite-friendly comebacks and bad attitudes. Astin's performance is surprisingly thoughtful and deep—given the wackiness of the plot, Astin's understated performance as the stalwart Mikey gave the film a grounding in realism. These same attributes made Astin a wonderful Sam in the Lord of the Rings trilogy two decades later.

The Truffle Shuffle

Chunk's ritual humiliation is the sort of thing that sticks with people, and in these days of YouTube and inexpensive nonlinear editing systems, it allows for the creation and promulgation of this horrifying remix:



"The Goonies 'R' Good Enough"



The music video—TWO music videos, actually, and it was billed as the first "two-part" video—for the theme to the film is an epic. Cyndi Lauper, most of the cast of the film, various World Wrestling Federation superstars from the era and Steven Spielberg himself appear in this 12-minute tribute to '80s cheese.

Nikolai Volkoff milks a plastic cow for some reason, Andre the Giant appears in a puff of smoke and saves the day in a furry diaper, Cyndi tangles with a giant octopus tentacle, and someone chained Martha Plimpton to a giant cauldron. (Good.) Also, the ladies from the then-unknown Bangles play pirates!


 

Jonathan Ke Quan 



The 1980s were a backward time—it was nearly impossible for an Asian character to be introduced in an American comedy film without a gong going off in the distance. Jonathan Ke Quan's "Data" is a bit of a step forward. Hell, he's the one who corrects an Anglo character's pronunciation ("Dahta" "Dayta!") and how many times did he save the Goonies with his wacky inventions?

Lots, according to this best-of video:



Eight-Bit Immortality

Remember The Goonies video game?

Seth Green Talks Star Wars Comedy Series

Seth Green Talks Star Wars Comedy Series

MTV got a hold of Seth Green last night on the Red Carpet last night and we found out a few details about the upcoming "Star Wars" comedy series. We brought you news back in April about the upcoming series. But now we have a few more details from the horse mouth.


"It's just so early. When there's good stuff to tell, I'll tell you," he said. "I don't want to say anything. People are really dramatically misinterpreting it." It's encouraging to hear, but Green wouldn't say much more. Josh asked him to set fans on the right path, but the "Robot Chicken" architect replied, "It's too early to set you straight, that's the worst part about it."

"It's gonna be CG animation, it's gonna be really funny and it's gonna be 'Star Wars' in a way you've never seen it," he said. "There are some recognizable characters but it's a huge universe, so we're really going where all the comedy is."

"Timeline... I don't think anybody is really talking about that yet. But it's not post-['Return of the Jedi']."

Scott Pilgrim VS. The World Clip: Come Meet Evil Ex

Scott Pilgrim VS. The World Clip: Come Meet Evil Ex

MTV has the 1st clip from the upcoming adaptation Scott Pilgrim VS. The World , it starts out with a quick intro from the awesome director Edgar Wright and then you see Cera (Scott) gettin’ beat up by movie star Lucas Lee (Evans) who is one of Ramona’s (Elizabeth-Winstead) one of evil exes.

To see the full trailer click HERE.




Meet charming and jobless Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera). A bass guitarist for garage band Sex Bob-omb, the 22-year-old has just met the girl of his dreams…literally. The only catch to winning Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead)? Her seven evil exes are coming to kill him. Genre-smashing filmmaker Edgar Wright (”Hot Fuzz,” “Shaun of the Dead”) tells the amazing story of one romantic slacker’s quest to power up with love in “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.”

Scott Pilgrim has never had a problem getting a girlfriend. It’s getting rid of them that proves difficult. From the girl who kicked his heart’s ass–and now is back in town–to the teenage distraction he’s trying to shake when Ramona rollerblades into his world, love hasn’t been easy. He soon discovers, however, his new crush has the most unusual baggage of all: a nefarious league of exes controls her love life and will do whatever it takes to eliminate him as a suitor.

As Scott gets closer to Ramona, he must face an increasingly vicious rogues’ gallery from her past–from infamous skateboarders to vegan rock stars and fearsomely identical twins. And if he hopes to win his true love, he must vanquish them all before it really is game over.

Nike And The Lakers Commercial

Nike And The Lakers Team Up With A Beatles Remake

Featuring A new Nike Ad has appeared in support of the Lakers and it features no other song than the classic Beatles song, “All Together Now.” The only thing is, it isn’t actually the Beatles song but a cover of the song performed by Andre 3000. Although we assume he only had good intentions for the ad (aside from making some extra cash), we’re not too happy with his rendition.

The song, “All Together Now,” written by mastermind songwriting duo Paul McCartney and John Lennon during the Magical Mystery Tour period but unreleased until the Yellow Submarine soundtrack, carried a light-hearted child-like vibe to it maintaining its focus on unity and peace. Andre 3000’s cover, however, is currently being used to highlight the accomplishments of Los Angeles’ Lakers. Don’t get us wrong, we’re fans of the rapper/singer’s work in both his solo work (Hello, “Heya!”) and with his group, Outkast, but the cover loses its credibility when the singing is replaced by unnecessary wailing and centered in competitive crowds cheering.
