Despicable Me Best Buy Cell Phone App

Universal And Best Buy Say You Can Be That Guy During The Movies

Don't we all hate those Douche Bags that use their phones during the movies. Sometimes I just want to get up and give them the smack down but I hold it back and complain to whom never I am with.

But during Despicable Me you can indeed be one of those Douche Bags and have you phone on during the film.

 Here’s the deal, Best Buy’s movie mode app will text translate the minions’ dialogue, to your phone, during the film’s end credit. Best Buy promises its app “automatically dims the mobile screen, silences the ringer and discourages texting”…

Banshee X-Men: First Class Film

Banshee To Be Introduced In Upcoming X-Men: First Class Film

Caleb Landry Jones will play Banshee in 20th Century Fox's origins pic "X-Men: First Class," marking the first time the mutant has been introduced to the bigscreen franchise.

Banshee (Sean Cassidy) is a fictional character, a Marvel Comics superhero who operates as a member of the X-Men.

An Irish mutant, Banshee possesses a "sonic scream," capable of harming enemies’ auditory systems and causing physical vibrations. He is named after the banshee, a legendary ghost from Irish mythology, said to possess a powerful cry, although the banshee spirit is invariably female.

A former Interpol agent and NYPD officer, Banshee was always a decade older than most of the X-Men and had only a relatively short tenure as a full-time X-Man. He was, however, a mentor of the 1990s-era junior team Generation X.

And in a second key casting, Nicholas Hoult will play Beast.

James MacAvoy and Michael Fassbender topline "First Class," directed by Matthew Vaughn.

Conceived by Bryan Singer and written by Jane Goldman, "First Class" introduces Charles Xavier (MacAvoy) and Erik Lensherr (Fassbender) as young men, when discovering their powers for the first time and before taking the names Professor X and Magneto, respectively.

Jones stars in David Fincher's upcoming "The Social Network," from Sony, and Eli Roth's "The Last Exorcism," from Lionsgate. Previous credits include "No Country for Old Men" and CBS pilot "Gimme Shelter," from producer John Wells.

Hoult, who starred in Tom Ford's "A Single Man" and was named one of Variety's "Actors to Watch," also is set to star in Warner Bros.' "Mad Max: Fury Road." Previous credits also include "About a Boy," opposite Hugh Grant.

Live Action The Little Mermaid Film On The Way

Live Action The Little Mermaid Film On The Way

Working Title Films is teaming with director Joe Wright the director of such films as "Pride & Prejudice," "Atonement" and "The Soloist." is developing a live-action movie version of Hans Christian Andersen's fairytale "The Little Mermaid."

The script -- for what will be the first English-language live-action adaptation of the tale -- has been penned by Abi Morgan ("Brick Lane") for Working Title and Wright.

It tells the classic tale of a young mermaid who gives up her life in the sea to love a human prince.

Andersen's story was first published in 1837 and has been adapted numerous times for stage and screen. Wright's version is inspired by a children's puppet theatre production of the classic at London's Little Angel Theatre Company, backers said.

Denzel Washington To Star In Safe House

Denzel Washington To Find A "Safe House"

Denzel Washington is in negotiations to star in the Universal action thriller “Safe House,” written by David Guggenheim.

Guggenheim’s original spy thriller was snatched up by Universal in a heated bidding environment back in February, and Washington’s name has recently been circulating as a go-to lead for the role of a dangerous prisoner being escorted through mencaing territory by a young CIA agent.

“Snabba Cash” director Daniel Espinosa is helming. Scott Stuber is producing.

The storyline follows the only surviving agent of an attack on a CIA safe house as he tries to get a lethal prisoner to a second safe house before being taken out by violent forces that want them both dead.

"Safe House" would put Washington on familiar action ground, if on the bad-guy side of the dynamic that won him an Oscar for "Training Day" in 2001.

Disney's Star Tours Final Flight Information

Disney's Star Tours Final Flight Information

This is going to be the farewell ride for Star Tours and I will be online trying to get my hands on one of the few tickets they will be distributing to member's.

TICKETS Available July 14 at 10 a.m. PDT

The most recent info is that it will be called "Star Tours: The Adventures Continue" New destinations will include Tatooine and Coruscant. And the new ride will be set in-between the two Star Wars trilogies.

Get ready to visit a galaxy far, far away one last time! After Disneyland has closed to the general public, D23 Members are invited to take an exhilarating "final flight" to the Moon of Endor before Star Tours suspends departures as it readies for its 2011 reimagining.

You will arrive at Ralph Brennan's Jazz Kitchen in Downtown Disney for your pre-boarding gathering. Guests will check in and receive their commemorative boarding pass for their trip. All guests will receive a strand of intergalactic beads (by way of New Orleans!). Enjoy a galactic beverage while mingling with fellow D23 Members and the D23 Team.

Once Disneyland has been cleared (for launch!), guests will be escorted into the park and directly into Star Tours. Bid C-3PO and R2-D2 a fond farewell as you walk past them in the pre-board area. After watching the classic 1987 safety video (love her hair!), you will enter one of the four Starspeeder 3000 vehicles where Captain Rex will welcome you one last time for your trip. We'd hope after all these flights, things will go smoothly but… we have a very bad feeling about this!

After you have safely landed, guests will be escorted back out of the park, energized to relaunch in the fall of 2011 with Star Tours: The Adventures Continue!

In the video the chairman states and October closure, that date has changed and the ride will be closing July 27th.

NOTE: Available only to D23 Members in good standing. Members may reserve a ticket for themselves and one (1) guest. This will be the final ride on Star Tours offered to the general public. In an effort to ensure that it is the last ride, only 160 tickets will be made available. Because Disneyland closes at midnight, we do not anticipate entering the park before 1 a.m., so please be prepared for a late night. D23 Members will be required to provide their membership number when reserving tickets. Tickets may be picked up only with a valid photo ID AND D23 MEMBERSHIP CARD. D23 Members who do not bring their membership card may not be admitted to the event. Ticketed Members who do not attend the event forfeit their place as well as all experiences, benefits, and gifts associated with the event. All D23 Special Events are subject to change without notice. There are no cancellations or refunds, tickets are not transferable.

Chris Evans Talks Captain America

Chris Evans Talks Captain America

We've all seen the concept art of Chris Evans as Captain America and today we have some news about the costume and shield from the horses mouth.

It’s an amazing costume. Given the fact that his costume is red, white and blue, and it’s tight, and it could be kind of flash and over the top – and given the fact that the movie takes place in the ‘40s and ‘50s – they’ve done a really good job of making it look really cool.

There will be two Captain America outfits, one will be a show costume and the other is a battle ready costume.

I think everyone that’s going to see it is going to say, 'Okay, well done. Well done. I think they got the costume right. The casting they completely ruined, but the costume they nailed!

[In the Fantastic Four  suit] …you could move around quite well. This is a little more cumbersome. It doesn’t exactly breathe the way the Fantastic Four costume breathed, but it’s the way it should be. Any type of World War II uniform would be a little chunky, and I think that’s what kind of gives it its character.

He then talks about the Caps shield.

We’ve been testing a lot of shields. Last time I was in London they had six shields and I had to hold each one, see if I was comfortable with each one, see which one we all thought had the right look. The thing is pretty heavy, so I’m not sure I can throw it that far! I’ll give it my best shot, but hopefully they’ll have some sort of stunt shield when it comes to actually chucking it!
I am hoping we will actually get our first look at the suit during Comic-Con this year.

Jean Reno Has 22 Bullets

Jean Reno Has 22 Bullets

Relegated to a very mixed bag of supporting roles in recent years (Couples Retreat or Pink Panther 2, anyone?), Jean Reno is back in a lead role in crime thriller 22 Bullets. To celebrate he's put on his best tough-guy face and armed himself to the teeth for the film's new quad poster.

As the title and bullet-peppered promo indicate, 22 Bullets sees Reno on the receiving end of a serious number of shells as Marseille gangster Charly Matteï. Long retired to spend time with his family and, we hope, water his pot plant, Matteï is tracked down by rivals to a carpark in the old port and left him for dead, riddled with 22 bullets.

Big mistake. The film is, after all, subtitled 'Revenge of the Professional', a nod to León, a man with something of a track record in making people dead and is loosely based on the life of a man known to his friends as 'Mad Jacky'. And if that doesn't make a sensible gangster think twice, nothing will.

Mad Jacky is Jacques Imbert, a notorious Marseille hardcase, who, like Reno's Matteï, was gunned down and left for dead by rival gangsters. 22 Bullets is loosely based on The Immortal, Franz-Olivier Giesbert's novel of Imbert's life. The gangster had seven bullets removed from his body and was paralysed in his right arm. As Le Monde noted with admirable sang-froid at the time: "Small matters, he learned to shoot with the left."

22 Bullets is out on September 3.

"Get Him to the Greek" Movie Review By Windy

"Get Him to the Greek"
By Windy (aka @rosenfie)

"Get Him To The Greek", directed by Nicholas Staller and starring Jonah Hill and Russell Brand is a spin-off from 2008's "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" by the same director.

Though a spin-off, there's one immediate mis-step (or creative liberty). In "Marshall", Russell Brand's character, Aldous Snow, meets Jonah Hill's restaurant host character several times. In "Greek", the two apparently have never met.

Aside from that one obvious change, "Greek" produces non-stop laughter from start to finish in the same manner as "The Hangover" - scenes that are so inappropriate you don't know if you should laugh or cover your eyes.

John Hill plays Aaron Greene, a peon working for music producing mogul Sergio Roma, hilariously portrayed by Sean "P. Diddy" Combs. With a last-stitch effort to keep the the music company profitable, Greene suggests a revival of a concert Aldous Snow played 10 years ago at the Greek Theater. All Greene needs to do is pick up the worn out, drug addicted Snow and ensure he makes it to The Greek for his performance. Sounds simple enough...

Ensuing is one "I can't believe that just happened" moment to another, with Greene getting the most laughs as he takes on every impossible task to keep Snow on track - from downing a carafe of whiskey so Snow can't drink it to smoking everything in their path to avoid Snow touching it.

Brand and Hill play extremely well off one another. Hill's comedic timing and physical antics combined with Brand's deadpan remarks, these two actors produce a well-timed, if not inappropriate comedy.

Another round of applause is deserved for Sean Combs, who has a strong supporting role as a "do whatever it takes" producer. Whenever he appears on screen, he garners laughs from the audience for his well-timed remarks.

"Get Him to the Greek" is a successful spin-off and could even stand on its own, as you don't need to see "Marshall" to enjoy all the laughs this film has to offer.

Joss Whedon's Wonder Woman

Joss Whedon's Wonder Woman, What Could Have Been

While we're all debating whether the makeover DC Comics gave Wonder Woman was a good idea or a bad idea, a Hollywood costume designer has just let us know what Joss Whedon's Wonder Woman would have looked like.

Back in 2005, we all thought Whedon would end up tackling the Amazon for Warner Bros., but by 2007, he announced that "I'm no longer slated to make Wonder Woman.'' But at least these sketches exist to give us clues as to what we might have seen on the screen.

Shawna Trpcic, who was the main costumer designer on Firefly, Angel, Dollhouse and other Whedon projects, shared her take on the Amazon over on Twitter.

Christian Bale To Take His" Last Photograph" Soon

Christian Bale To Take His" Last Photograph" Soon

The "300" team of director Zack Snyder, screenwriter Kurt Johnstad and Hollywood Gang have reunited for "The Last Photograph," a drama based on an original idea by Snyder.

Story revolves around a photograph that becomes the catalyst for a journey two men undertake through war-torn Afghanistan.

Now, Pajiba reports that Bale is stepping into one of the lead roles and there might be a change at the helm, with word that The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’s Niels Arden Oplev is a frontrunner to take over the megaphone. But that part is simply a rumour at this juncture, even if it does make for an exciting proposition. While the film is still loosely scheduled for 2013, we’re not holding our collective breath given its slow process so far. Still, Bale jumping aboard could give it a little more momentum…

Johnstad will write the script as a potential directing vehicle for Snyder. Hollywood Gang's Gianni Nunnari will produce with Snyder and his Cruel and Unusual Films partner Deborah Snyder. Craig J. Flores, partner at Hollywood Gang Productions will executive produce alongside Wesley Coller for Cruel and Usual Films.

The "Twilight" Saga: "Eclipse" Movie Review

The "Twilight" Saga: "Eclipse"
Review by Windy (aka @rosenfie)

Authors Note: As stated in my "New Moon" review, I am a Twihard and this review is written from a Twihard perspective. Therefore, you already have an idea of where this is going...

"Eclipse", the third film in The "Twilight" Saga franchise, is directed by David Slade ("30 Days of Night") and stars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner.

The first two films in the series "Twilight" and "New Moon" were highly sought after by "Twilight" fans. The third installment, "Eclipse,' however, expands its reach into the male audience with its action sequences.

This film is the best of the three for many reasons. The actors seem more at ease with their characters, the special effects are stronger (as would be expected with a bigger budget) and there's more action and story lines.

In "New Moon", we left off with Edward Cullen's (Pattinson) proposal to Bella Swan (Stewart). With a deep breath of shock, the screen cut to black.

"Eclipse" starts out with Riley (Xavier Samuel) being turned into a vampire by Victoria (Bryce Dallas Howard) in an attempt to start building a newborn vampire army to kill Bella Swan. Her death will avenge the death of her mate, James, killed by The Cullen family in the first "Twilight" film. Though the newborn army is one central plot, we continue living the love triangle between Bella, Jacob and Edward. Bella must come to terms with her feelings for Jacob and decide who she ultimately loves more.

Stewart and Pattinson are significantly more comfortable in their roles as Bella Swan and Edward Cullen, though this may also be a function of the fact that Edward learns in "New Moon" that he absolutely cannot live without Bella and has therefore lost any discomfort her humanity or blood may have brought him before.

The entire Cullen family, including Pattinson, Peter Facinelli, Elizabeth Reaser, Ashley Greene, Jackson Rathbone, Nikki Reed and Kellan Lutz, is more at ease with their characters. There doesn't seem to be as much stiffness with the family portrayal. Since this isn't part of the plot, the actors have likely become more at one with their characters.

As mentioned above, this third film widens its attraction to male audiences. In the climax of the film, the werewolves and Cullens agree to work together to defeat the newborn vampire army in an all-out vampire-shredding brawl. Add to that a battle scene between Edward and Victoria, and you have yourselves a partial action flick.

With more character development and more action, "Eclipse" stands to continue to break box office records as "New Moon" did, particularly with the addition of the male movie-goer audience.

Reboot: Fantastic Voyage By: Jonathan Cyfer

Reboot: Fantastic Voyage
 By: Jonathan Cyfer

If you have never heard of Fantastic Voyage it's probably because you aren't into vintage science fiction. Released in 1966, this is one of a long series of cold war thrillers pitting Americans and Soviets in a race against time to gain a technological advantage that could be used as a weapon. In this case, the weapon is miniaturization; the ability to shrink people and objects down to microscopic size.

The plot goes thus. A Soviet scientist named Jan Benes defects and is smuggled out of the Soviet Union to America by a U.S Agent named Grant, heroically played by Stephen Boyd. On the way from the airport, Soviet agents make a desperate attempt to assassinate Benes by crashing a vehicle into the car transporting him. There's a subsequent gun fight but the Soviets are beaten back. Unfortunately, Benes is injured in the crash. There's a blood clot in his brain that has put him into a coma. It's inoperable through conventional means but there's still a way to save Benes...by miniaturizing a medical team aboard a submarine and injecting the craft into Benes' bloodstream. The operation will literally take place inside Benes' brain, with the surgeon (Dr Duval played by Arthur Kennedy) using a portable laser for a scalpel.

Apparently both sides have miniaturization but the problem is, objects shrunken down can only remain at their small size for exactly 60 minutes. Benes successfully discovered a method of prolonging the miniaturization process. To get the secret (and probably for humanitarian reasons as well), the Americans must save his life by removing the blood clot. The first problem is, because of the inherit limitation of the miniaturization process; the team must complete their task in only one hour. After that, they will automatically start to grow and become vulnerable to the body’s defenses, principally white corpuscles, and be destroyed. But there’s more.
Grant, the agent who rescued Benes from behind the Iron Curtain, is assigned to the mission supposedly as the sub’s radio operator but really as security. One of the medical team is suspected of being a Soviet agent who will do anything to make sure the operation doesn't succeed, but no one knows who it is. The prime suspect is Dr Duval himself, a brilliant neurosurgeon, but very difficult to work with. Others on the mission who could be the agent are Duval's lovely assistant Cora (played by 1960s sex symbol Raquel Welch who, in this film, appears in nothing more alluring than a form fitting wet suit), Dr Michaels (played by Donald Pleasance), a circulatory expert who acts as navigator for the submarine while it's in Benes' bloodstream, and Captain Owens, the Navy officer who is the pilot of the sub.

I know it sounds hokey, but for its day, the special effects creating the illusion of a tiny sub with miniature people traveling through a human body were first rate. Also, although the cast might not be familiar to younger people today, the stars, such as Raquel Welch, Edmond O'Brien, Donald Pleasance, and Arthur O'Connell were very well known and represented a considerable amount of talent (also science fiction history buffs may remember Pleasance’s role as SEN in George Lucas' first film THX-1138). Forty-four years have passed since the original Fantastic Voyage film was released. Imagine what 21st century CGI technology could do with the concept.

Here's the catch. The screenplay was written by Harry Kleiner, based on a story by Otto Klement and Jerome Bixby. Names you aren't likely to be familiar with. However, Bantam Books brought the rights to the film and hired brilliant science fiction writer Isaac Asimov to write the novelization. Asimov supposedly complained quite a bit about the poor science and various plot holes in the screenplay and was given permission to write the novel more to his liking. However Asimov was never really satisfied with the original novel.

Asimov finally wrote an original story based on the Fantastic Voyage premise which was published in 1988 as Fantastic Voyage II. Asimov creates a cast of much less stereotypical and much more human characters with the action set this time in a fictional Soviet Union of the 21st century (Asimov's ability to predict the future via science fiction didn't include foreseeing the falling of the Berlin Wall). Asimov's novel fixes the poor science of the original film more completely than his 1960s novelization could (though we're still talking about make-believe technology, of course), and an adventure truly worthy of Asimov's talents was created. It would be a fantastic (pardon the pun) way to re-launch the film by basing it on Asimov's more superior 1980s treatment of the subject.

The idea for a remake has been in “development hell” since Asimov wrote Fantastic Voyage II and to the best of my knowledge, the film is no closer now to being reborn than when the novel was published 22 years ago.

While no longer a weapon, the technology of miniaturization has a wide variety of amazing applications in Asimov's vision, not just in the medical sciences, but startlingly enough in the areas of anti-gravity and high speed space travel as well. This is a story that was compelling in 1966 and could really be brought to fruition if mad e today. If anyone out there reading this has the ability to do something about getting the remake moving again, please, please do so. Done right, Fantastic Voyage II would be a blockbuster.

"The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" Wins The Box Office Race

"The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" Wins The Box Office Race

"The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" continued its boxoffice dominance on Friday as it drained moviegoers' wallets of an estimated $28.6 million.

Summit's supernatural romance, playing in 4,468 theaters in North America, ticked up slightly on its third day of release from the $24.2 million it collected on Thursday as its domestic cume rose to $121.3 million.

Current estimates suggests the movie could power its way to a four-day holiday weekend gross of about $106 million, which would add up to an opening six-day tally at more than $198 million, putting it ahead of "New Moon's" first six-day number of $178.9 million.

Meanwhile, in second place, Paramount's fantasy "The Last Airbender," held steady. Following its $16.4 million bow on Thursday, it again grossed more than $16 million on Friday.

In its third weekend, Disney's "Toy Story 3" held down the third spot, taking in about $10.5 million. Now with more than $269 million in total grosses, the sequel moves closer to cracking the $300 million mark domestically.

Sophomore hold-overs "Grown Ups" and "Knight and Day" took the fourth and fifth positions respectively. Sony's "Grown Ups" took in $6.9 million, while Fox's "Knight and Day" picked up $3.4 million.

New Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Trailer

Another New Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Trailer

We have a new Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows trailer which is included on the video game LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 (Collector’s Edition), contains some new footage from the much anticipated final installment which will come in 2 parts. To view the previous trailer click Here.

Watch the trailer after the Jump..

Part 1 begins as Harry, Ron and Hermione set out on their perilous mission to track down and destroy the secret to Voldemort’s immortality and destruction—the Horcruxes. On their own, without the guidance of their professors or the protection of Professor Dumbledore, the three friends must now rely on one another more than ever. But there are Dark Forces in their midst that threaten to tear them apart.

Meanwhile, the wizarding world has become a dangerous place for all enemies of the Dark Lord. The long-feared war has begun and Voldemort’s Death Eaters seize control of the Ministry of Magic and even Hogwarts, terrorizing and arresting anyone who might oppose them. But the one prize they still seek is the one most valuable to Voldemort: Harry Potter. The Chosen One has become the hunted one as the Death Eaters search for Harry with orders to bring him to Voldemort… alive.

Harry’s only hope is to find the Horcruxes before Voldemort finds him. But as he searches for clues, he uncovers an old and almost forgotten tale—the legend of the Deathly Hallows. And if the legend turns out to be true, it could give Voldemort the ultimate power he seeks.

Little does Harry know that his future has already been decided by his past when, on that fateful day, he became “the Boy Who Lived.” No longer just a boy, Harry Potter is drawing ever closer to the task for which he has been preparing since the day he first stepped into Hogwarts: the ultimate battle with Voldemort.
