Cher Joins Mamma Mia Sequel

Paul Trailer Starring Simon Pegg & Seth Rogen

Here Comes Paul
Paul is an upcoming 2011 ensemble science fiction comedy film directed by Greg Mottola and written by and starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. Featuring Seth Rogen as the voice of the title character. We got a sneak peck of the film during Comic-Con ’10 and I am still skeptical about this film after seeing this trailer. Maybe be its the British humor?

Pegg and Frost (Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead) play two sci-fi geeks whose pilgrimage takes them to America’s UFO heartland. While there, they accidentally meet an alien who brings them on an insane road trip that alters their universe forever.

For the past 60 years, an alien named Paul (voiced by Rogen) has been hanging out at a top-secret military base

Tron: Legacy Review By SandwichJohn

Tron: Legacy Movie Review By: SandwichJohn
Alright let's start this again. Two hours of writing my review have been lost, but I have to get this done so let's start all over again. This is my life.

The original Tron came out back in 1982 and I don't remember going to see it in theater but I do remember wearing out our Beta machine watching the movie over and over again. Going in the back yard while living in Sagamihara,Japan and playing disc wars with a Frisbee, throwing them at my buddies and pretending we were in the arena.

This has to be one of the most anticipated films for me in my life time other then the release of Star Wars Episode 1. I have been hoping and wishing that they would make a sequel for more than 20 years.



I attended my first Comic-Con back in 2008 and there was buzz that there was going to be a tron panel during the Disney presentation. We got a teaser trailer TR2N. It depicted a yellow Program engaged in a light cycle battle with a blue Program, and i…

Tron: Legacy Meet The Cast

Are you Ready?
Tron: Legacy opens today and if many of you follow me on Twitter I had the pleassure of seeing the film early and was not thrilled by what I saw. But I told myself I have to see the film again to be fair. So the review will be coming later this weekend.

Yahoo had a chance to talk to the cast about the film and how they all got involved in the film.

Synopsis:

With the help of the fearl…

Eric Bana To Star In Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

Eric Bana May Sink His Teeth In The Role
Australian actor Eric Bana is circling the title role in 20th Century Fox's big screen adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's novel "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" TheWrap has learned.

While Bana hasn't landed the coveted role yet, he's scheduled to meet with director Timur Bekmambetov soon, and is certainly in contention for the part.

The casting would make sense, as there's a bit of a physical resemblance between the two. At 6' 4", Lincoln is the tallest American president, while Bana is the rare leading man who stands at 6' 3".

The epistolary-style book is written as a biography of Lincoln based on "secret diaries" he kept that were given to the author by a vampire named Henry Sturges, who saved Lincoln's life when he battled a vampire as a teenager. The two develop a friendship and Sturges teaches Lincoln how to hunt and kill vampires.

Tim Burton is producing "Abraham Lincoln: …

Favreau Chose Magic Kingdom Over Iron Man 3

Favreau Chose Magic Kingdom Over Iron Man 3 
Insiders tell Vulture that Favreau has just informed Marvel Studios that he won't direct a third Iron Man film.

It's unclear whether the impasse was financial or creative or both. One informed source hears that he was frustrated with Marvel's urge to stuff more of their in-house heroes into the next film in the wake of The Avengers. In a recent interview with MTV News, Favreau explained that based on his conversations with Marvel Studios executives, he had no clarity as to what a third Iron Man film would even be about. “In theory, Iron Man 3 is going to be a sequel or continuation of Thor, Hulk, Captain America and Avengers,” said Favreau at the time, “This whole world … I have no idea what it is. I don’t think they do either, from conversations I’ve had with those guys.”

Still other industry insiders look at Favreau's growing price tag and speculate that he was getting too expensive for the frugal Marvel and its equally co…

Keira Knightley To Star In Anna Karenina

Keira Knightley To Star In Anna Karenina
The screenplay is being written by Tom Stoppard and the film’s being directed by Joe Wright, who helped make Keira a star.

Stoppard’s adaptation of Tolstoy’s tear-jerking classic, about a married woman who becomes a social outcast when she has an affair with an aristocrat, was commissioned by London-based studio Working Title.
Tragic heroine: Keira Knightley is first choice to play the lead in Tolstoy's tear-jerking classic

Wright, who made Pride And Prejudice and Atonement, featuring two of Keira’s best ­performances, has talked with his number one leading lady about the idea of playing one of the most tragic heroines of 19th-century Russian literature.

But no deals have been done and there’s some way to go before the picture is even given the official go-ahead.

Tim Bevan, who runs Working Title with Eric Fellner, explained Stoppard’s screenplay is due before Christmas.

George Clooney To Star In Warner Bros. "Gravity"

George Clooney Replaces Robert Downey Jr.
George Clooney will star opposite Sandra Bullock in Gravity, Warner Bros.’ and Legendary Pictures' 3D outer space thriller that has become a game of musical chairs for actors.

The initial pairing for the Alfonso Cuaron-directed project -- about a female astronaut struggling to survive and trying to make it to Earth after a disaster in space -- was to have been Angelina Jolie and Robert Downey Jr. Then came a protracted series of reversals that saw Jolie leave and come back, and actresses Marion Cotillard, Scarlett Johansson, Blake Lively and Natalie Portman involved with the movie to varying degrees, all within the last eight months.

Downey stuck with the project throughout the various casting changes but in mid-November, just as things looked set with Bullock, he bailed.

Warner considered scrapping the project but conducted a Hail Mary search for the male lead who, while doesn’t carry the movie, is still pivotal in the first act.

As a young man, Jacob Jankowski (Robert Pattinson) was tossed by fate onto a rickety train that was home to the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth. It was the early part of the great Depression, and for Jacob, now ninety, the circus world he remembers was both his salvation and a living hell. A veterinary student just shy of a degree, he was put in charge of caring for the circus menagerie.

It was there that he met Marlena (Reese Witherspoon), the beautiful equestrian star married to August (Christoph Waltz)…

Clint Eastwood Talks Casting DiCaprio,Theron & Dench For Upcoming J. Edgar Film

Eastwood Talks Casting For Upcoming Film J. Edgar
The star were aligned for the Sandwich last night during the Red Carpet for the California Hall Of Fame induction. First I got an interview with The Man, James Cameron, which is hard for a small website like mine with no money behind it, just hard work. And as you can tell Hard Work does pay off.

From a a distance a cloud of dust over takes the red carpet. And I hear the theme from The Good, The Bad & The Ugly. No, it can't be, the a misty cloud comes over the area and I hear "Go ahead, make my day". Well, not really, but Clint Eastwood appears and I had no clue he was going to attend the ceremony.

I was so unprepared for this one. Mr. Eastwood walked the Red Carpet, taking a time out to talk to James Cameron. Again the BIG dogs get their chance to get the first crack at him. There was no way I was going to let this once in a life time chance to talk to Dirty Harry, pass me bye...

James Cameron Out Of Cleopatra Confirmed & Talks Avatar 2

Exclusive Cameron Talks Cleopatra And The Next Two Avatars
I had the pleasure of attending the California Hall of Fame 2010 induction last night. James Cameron was one of the 14 people being inducted this night. It was rainy and cold last night but nothing was going to stop me from trying to get in a questions to one of the all time great directors and producers ever, James Cameron. I also had the chance to meet the Man, George Lucas, last year. This is every young man's dream to meet and get time to talk to James Cameron. I spoke to Mr. Cameron, or asked a question, to him at Comic Con when he was promoting the release of Avatar back in 2009. But this was a whole different experience.

Mr. Cameron was being pushed down the Red Carpet pretty fast, spending most of his time with ET and Extra, but my chance was coming. Would he talk to the Sandwich or just blow me off?

Like my bother said "I have a huge presence on the Red Carpet" Well, hell yeah I do, I'm a Meneghetti!…

Taylor Lautner To Star In "Incarceron"

Taylor Lautner Going To Jail
Twilight Saga's Taylor Lautner has become attached to star in Incarceron, the Fox 2000 adaptation of the Catherine Fisher young adult novel. The film is being written by Adam Cooper & Bill Collage, who are among the writers behind the Brett Ratner-directed Universal comedy Tower Heist, and who are writing Moby Dick for Timur Bekmambetov and Moses for Fox and Peter Chernin.

Lautner will play Finn, who has lived his entire life on Incarceron, a savage, futuristic prison society. He meets the daughter of the warden, who is trapped in her own prison, a futuristic world constructed beautifully to look like the 17th Century. She knows nothing of Incarceron except that it exists. She and Finn simultaneously find a crystal key that allows them to communicate and hatch an escape plan for Finn. The film will be produced by John Palermo and Lautner is likely to become involved as a producer as well.

That metallic sheen could suggest any number of likelihoods. Perhaps Jack Sparrow will find an island of pirate Terminators, or get his skeleton laced with adamantium (either of which we would totally pay to see). Possibly it hints at an encounter with the Silver Surfer, or, at a stretch (because those other suggestions are so plausible) with Chromeskull from Laid to Rest. Or maybe it's a metaphor for On Stranger Tides itself: an entry in a franchise that's comfortably familiar but slightly tweaked.
