Mission Impossible - Ghost Protocol Poster

We're already rather looking forward to Mission Impossible - Ghost Protocol just because it daringly breaks away from colon-focused punctuation of the series to date. As a bonus, it also has Pixar's Brad Bird directing, a heck of a cast assembled and some very promising trailers so far.

Move Trailer-

The official synopsis describes the plot thusly: "The IMF is shut down when it’s implicated in a global terrorist bombing plot. Ghost Protocol is initiated and Ethan Hunt and his rogue new team must go undercover to clear their organization’s name. No help, no contact, off the grid. You have never seen a mission grittier and more intense than this."

See entire poster after the Jump...



That "grittier" element would explain the hoodie, of course. This latest poster seems to be very much in line with that still we saw a few weeks ago in that Cruise is clearly still down with the kids in his hoodie.

Official Information:

“MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – GHOST PROTOCOL”
Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions Present

Mel Gibson Is Going To Make "Judah Maccabee" Film

It’s a project that will have everybody in Hollywood and beyond talking.  Warner Bros has set up an untitled drama that teams Gibson and screenwriter Joe Eszterhas on the telling of the heroic story of Jewish warrior Judah Maccabee. Eszterhas will write the script, and I understand that Gibson will collaborate with him.

Maccabee teamed with his father and four brothers to lead the Jewish revolt against the Greek-Syrian armies that had conquered Judea in the second century B.C. Gibson has the first option to direct but will definitely produce the film through his Icon Productions banner. It’s understandable why Warner Bros would want to be back in business with Gibson, who was once a high-profile fixture there and who made a fortune for that studio with the Lethal Weapon series and other films.

Having put some painful personal issues behind him, Gibson is determined to get back to making movies. He has long wanted to make this film about heroic Jews, and it was discussed even when he was under fire after his drunken anti-Semitic rant during a 2006 Malibu arrest. Maccabee’s triumph and struggle against tyranny and oppression where people gave their lives so that others would be free to worship is celebrated by Jews all over the world through Hanukkah, the Festival of Lights. This subject matter is a decided departure for the filmmaker famous for directing The Passion of the Christ. But in a way the subject matter is in his wheelhouse: Maccabee is a close cousin to William Wallace, leader of the Scottish rebellion against the English in Braveheart, the film that brought Gibson two Oscars: for Best Picture and Best Director. Gibson last directed Apocalypto about the Mayan civilization and a tribesman who escapes human sacrifice and saves his family. While Gibson has experienced tremendous success as a producer and director, his recent star turn in front of the camera in The Beaver was a box office failure even though it received a rousing ovation at this past Cannes Film Festival.

This new deal also marks a major return to filmmaking for Joe Eszterhas, once Hollywood’s highest paid screenwriter for pics like Basic Instinct, Jagged Edge, and Flashdance. His credits also include two films that focused on Jewish themes: the 1987 Betrayed, which starred Debra Winger as an undercover FBI agent probing white supremacists, and 1989’s Music Box, which starred Jessica Lange whose Hungarian immigrant father is accused of engaging in atrocities during World War II. Both films were directed by Costa-Gavras and produced by Irwin Winkler. Music Box resulted in Eszterhas being condemned by the Hungarian Parliament for “betraying his heritage” by revealing the massacre of Jewish Hungarians by other Hungarians at the end of World War II. However, in 1995, Eszterhas was awarded the Emanuel Foundation’s Lifetime Achievement Award for his writings about the Holocaust in Hungary.

In recent years, Eszterhas stepped away from Hollywood, moved to Cleveland, overcame cancer, and focused on writing books instead of films. Both he and Gibson have had their share of travails, and make an unexpected and intriguing pairing on an unexpected and intriguing subject.

Ben Affleck Brings Sexy Back In "Argo"

Ben Affleck is stepping back in time for his next role.

The actor, who will be playing former CIA agent Tony Mendez in his new film Argo, was photographed on the movie's L.A. set in full 70s garb. For the character, Affleck sports a longer, shaggy hairstyle and was wearing a period-perfect wide-lapel shirt and sports coat.

The film, which follows the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis and the CIA's secret plan to smuggle six American diplomats out of the country by disguising them as a Canadian film crew (in cooperation with the Canadian government), is set for release in 2012.

Schwarzenegger & Willis Join The Expendables 2

After The Expendables turned in a surprisingly strong $275 million worldwide gross, many have wondered what they would do for an encore. How’s this? Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis have just closed deals to take “substantial” roles in The Expendables 2, alongside Sylvester Stallone. This has been rumored as possible, and it basically answers the hopes of a lot of fans who weren’t satisfied when action icons Schwarzenegger and Willis turned in cameos in the original, and poked fun at the days when they were the world’s top action stars.

Stallone directed the first one but stepped out and the job went to Simon West. Filming will begin in October, and Lionsgate will once again release the Millennium Films-produced actioner.

Schwarzenegger is already working for Lionsgate in the Jee-Won Kim-directed action film Last Stand. Willis will squeeze in the role before going off to Russia to reprise his John McLane role in Die Hard 5, which just landed John Moore as director at Fox, and then he will make a sequel to Red. Aside from Stallone, original cast members Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Mickey Rourke, Terry Crews and Jet Li are expected to return, and there is buzz about Chuck Norris and Jean-Claude Van Damme.

Chris Tucker Is Finally Ready To Make His Return To The Big Screen

Chris Tucker is apparently ready for moviegoers to hear more words coming out of his mouth.

Playbook, which is scheduled to shoot in the fall, stars Bradley Cooper as a high school teacher just released from a mental institution after four years and looking to reconcile with his wife. It's an adaptation of the novel by Matthew Quick.

“TORCHWOOD: MIRACLE DAY” The Blood Line Preview

TUNE-IN TO SEE THE HIGHLY ANTICIPATED CONCLUSION OF THE STARZ ORIGINAL SERIES “TORCHWOOD: MIRACLE DAY” ON FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 9 AT 10PM ET/PT


The season finale of “Torchwood: Miracle Day,” entitled ‘The Blood Line,’ premieres on STARZ on Friday, September 9 at 10pm ET/PT. In the original hour-long episode, the Torchwood team travels across the world on a final, desperate mission, but the Three Families are unstoppable unless a terrible sacrifice is made. Frances Fisher (Titanic, The Lincoln Lawyer) guest stars as The Mother.



"Torchwood: Miracle Day" begins with a day when nobody dies. All across the world, nobody dies. And then the next day, and the next, and the next, people keep aging -- they get hurt and sick -- but they never die. The result: a population boom, overnight. With all the extra people, resources are finite. It's said that in four month's time, the human race will cease to be viable. But this can't be a natural occurrence - someone's got to be behind it. It's a race against time as C.I.A. agent Rex Matheson investigates a global conspiracy. The answers lie within an old, secret British institute. As Rex keeps asking "What is Torchwood?," he's drawn into a world of adventure, and a threat to change what it means to be human, forever.
STARZ’ newest original series is a reimagining of the UK sensation, which originally debuted in 2006 on BBC One. The show's original creator, writer/producer Russell T Davies, serves as executive producer along with BBC Worldwide Productions' SVP Julie Gardner, with Davies also serving as show-runner.


"Torchwood: Miracle Day" is produced by BBC Worldwide Productions for Starz, BBC Cymru Wales and BBC Worldwide.

Gillian Anderson is ready to reprise her iconic role as Dana Scully in a third X Files film.

Speaking after the world premiere in Sydney of Universal’s Johnny English Reborn, in which she plays the head of fictional MI7 opposite Rowan Atkinson, Anderson said that there is definite talk of X Files 3.

And she indicated that there could be more life in the franchise, saying she wants to do a film spoof of the hit Fox TV series.

“I’ve always wanted to do a spoof of the X Files as a film,” she said.

“We talked about that for a long time but maybe after three features we could get to do a spoof feature.”

THR has got their hands on this exclusive teaser poster for Jason Reitman's Young Adult, a dramedy starring Oscar winner Charlize Theron that will hit theaters on Dec. 9.

Like Reitman's three previous features -- the critical and commercial hits Thank You for Smoking (2005), which focused on the cigarette lobby; Juno (2007), which dealt with a teenage pregnancy; and Up in the Air (2009), which tackled unemployment -- this highly-anticipated fourth outing tackles difficult subject matter in an often funny way. Theron plays an alcoholic writer of young-adult novels who, on a whim, decides to return to the small town that she left behind years ago to aggressively pursue her ex-boyfriend from high school (Patrick Wilson) -- only, now he is happily married and the father of a young child, which certainly complicates matters, and leads her to another high school classmate (Patton Oswalt), and no shortage of trouble.

We've never seen Theron in a role quite like this before, just as we had never before seen Aaron Eckhart, Ellen Page, or George Clooney in the way that Reitman portrayed them prior to those collaborations. Considering that both Page and Clooney walked away with best actress and best actor Oscar nominations, respectively, one can certainly understand why Theron was willing to give it a shot. Call it "the Reitman touch."

Young Adult reunites Reitman with screenwriter Diablo Cody (who won the best original screenplay Oscar for their last collaboration, Juno), as well as much of the rest of his "stock company" that played such an integral role in making previous films such resounding successes (including cinematographer Eric Steelberg, film editor Dana Glauberman, first assistant director Jason Blumenfeld, and several others). Unlike those earlier films, it will be skipping the festival circuit and going directly for a late-season release.

Beetlejuice 2 Will Not Be A Remake But A Reboot

KatzSmith Productions partners David Katzenberg and Seth Grahame-Smith have just signed a two-year first-look feature producing deal at Warner Bros. While rights are still being worked out, one of their first projects is expected to be a sequel to Beetlejuice, the 1988 Tim Burton-directed hit that starred Michael Keaton as a ghoul hired by a recently deceased couple to drive the new owners out of their house. Burton and Keaton made the movie while they were working on the studio’s first Batman film, which was released the following year. Beetlejuice also starred Alec Baldwin, Winona Ryder and Geena Davis. The film will not be a remake; the intention is to reboot it by advancing the storyline of the original, which was done by The Geffen Company and Warner Bros.

The Warner Bros producing deal grew from the screenwriting work that Grahame-Smith did for Burton on Dark Shadows, currently in production with Johnny Depp heading the cast. While Warner Bros and other studios continue to cut back producing pacts, in KatzSmith the studio gets two partners who while just getting started producing features bring a lot of their own ideas to the table and are established writers and aspiring feature directors.

Grahame-Smith will write two scripts as part of the deal, and it’s a distinct possibility that Beetlejuice 2 will be one of them. Katzenberg and Grahame-Smith tell me the model for their company is Bad Robot and Imagine Entertainment, where the principals generate many of the ideas that are turned into films.

Nick Diaz Out Carlos Condit In For Main Event At UFC 137

This is Aaron Rodgers skipping the Super Bowl, Roy Halladay passing on the World Series.

An elite professional athlete doesn’t do what Nick Diaz did, not on the precipice of what could have been the greatest night of his professional life.

UFC president Dana White made the dramatic move Wednesday to yank Diaz from a welterweight championship bout against Georges St. Pierre that would have topped the card at UFC 137 on Oct. 29 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas about 10 minutes before a bizarre news conference began in the deserted arena.

Nick Diaz is known for his wild fighting style in the cage. But he's even better known for his unpredictability outside it.

White opened the news conference by recounting the chain of events of the last several days. He noted how Diaz missed two flights to Toronto, another to Las Vegas and how he couldn’t be certain Diaz would show up for the fight.


Only moments before White and St. Pierre walked on stage, White pulled Diaz and offered the bout to Carlos Condit. Condit, who was to have fought B.J. Penn on the undercard of UFC 137, broke down in tears when he learned the news, White said.



White said he has promoted more than 1,600 fights in his career and this is the first time a main-event fighter has failed to show up for a news conference. Worse, White called Diaz after Diaz had missed a Monday afternoon Air Canada flight from San Francisco to Toronto. According to White, Diaz apologized and White had him rebooked on a flight later that night.

“He lied to my face,” White said.

Diaz has lost virtually all of the credibility he had with all but an extremely small segment of the fan base. He’s the guy who once taunted an opponent while asking for a rematch by saying, “Don’t be scared, homie.” But Diaz wasn’t willing to get onto a plane and sit through a couple of hour-long news conferences in order to fulfill his contractual obligations and earn what White said would have been “life-changing money” to fight St. Pierre.

Diaz has never liked to do media appearances – The truth is, though, few high-level fighters do, including St. Pierre, who admitted as much on Wednesday – but sitting for an hour at a news conference is far better than blowing a major fight and, potentially, his career.

“I would have to assume with Diaz that we’re probably going to let him go, but we’ll see what happens,” said White, who said he had spent $15,000 on airfare trying to get Diaz to where he needed to be.

It was almost comical when, in the middle of the news conference, White’s cell phone rang. Cesar Gracie, Diaz’s manager, was on the other end of the line. Gracie, though, wasn’t pleading for one last chance.

Gracie agreed with White’s decision and told him so.

“I’ve stuck up for Nick, even when he was wrong before,” Gracie told MMAjunkie.com. “But he’s let a lot of people down. He’s let his team down. We all bought plane tickets to Vegas. We got hotel rooms booked, paid for. We’ve got all that, and Nick just decided not to go to something he’s supposed to. They’re paying him a lot of money, and in this economy where people don’t have money, he’s blessed. He should be thanking God every night how blessed he is.

“And instead, he’s not getting on a plane to go to Vegas. I’m extremely disappointed. He’s done a lot of stuff, but this is the worst of it. If I were him, I would be begging Dana White to get my job back and work your way up to a title shot at some point.”

A straight-thinking person doesn’t do what Diaz did, but Diaz also isn’t a Harvard graduate. Gracie speculated Diaz might have a social anxiety disorder, but he admits he doesn’t know. No one does.

Only Diaz really knows what moves him and, if the truth be told, he probably couldn’t rationally explain why he chose to skip the news conferences.

That’s why White couldn’t have gone forward with the fight card with Diaz in the main event. This is a guy who slipped out the back door at Gracie’s home as Gracie was preparing to drive him to the airport.

It’s bad enough to pull him now, after tickets had gone on sale, advertising purchased and promotional materials had been printed.

Imagine, though, the outcry from fans who had purchased the pay-per-view expecting to see Diaz fight St. Pierre only to learn on the night of the fight that Diaz failed to show.

White made a rational decision Wednesday because it was clear he couldn’t count on Diaz to do the same.

“Am I supposed to move forward with this fight and feel confident that this kid is going to show up to fight?” White said. “He’s running and hiding from his camp, his team. I’d rather pull the fight now than not have him show up the night of the event.”

The UFC almost has no option to cut him. White is extraordinarily fighter-friendly in these kinds of situations. In 2008, he went to great extremes to defend Quinton “Rampage” Jackson when Jackson was charged with several felonies while leading police on a chase in Costa Mesa, Calif. If White had a viable alternative, he likely wouldn’t dump Diaz. Given the circumstances, though, what choice does he have?

The news of his release will likely come in the next several days, and that will leave Diaz struggling to find a job. Any promoter whose fights air on television would have to think long and hard about putting Diaz on, given the threat of the no-show.

It’s a sad situation, but Diaz is a grown man. He doesn’t have to fight Georges St. Pierre if he doesn’t want.

But when you sign your name on a contract and say you’ll do something, including making media appearances to promote your fight, you do it.

When you don’t, you find yourself in a situation like Nick Diaz is today, a great talent who is likely to discover he has no place to showcase it.

If it was willful on Diaz’ part, then he deserves everything that happens to him.

But if, as I suspect, there is more to it than Diaz just flouting authority, here’s hoping the UFC gets him the help and gives him the support he needs. That’s the only right thing to do.

Trailer The Human Centipede Part 2 [Full Sequence]

For any of you fans of the first Human Centipede, here is the trailer to The Human Centipede Part 2 [Full Sequence]. I can't see how your a fan of the film, but oh well. The film was directed by Dutch filmmaker Tom Six.  It will be released in theaters in the United States on October 7, 2011.

I was going to put up the plot outline up for you to read, but it is just to nasty. I included it after the jump.

Watch the trailer after the Jump...

The film centers on an antagonist called Martin (Laurence Harvey), who becomes sexually obsessed with a DVD recording of the film within the film, The Human Centipede (First Sequence). The original working title was the Trevor Jones story. In the DVD, a surgeon kidnaps three people and surgically connects them mouth-to-anus. Martin masturbates as he watches the film, with sandpaper wrapped around his penis. He subsequently creates his own twelve-person "human centipede" and gains sexual gratification from the pain, humiliation and suffering of his victims. He is shown to become sexually aroused whenever a member of his centipede is forced to defecate into the mouth of the victim behind them. Martin rapes the woman at the rear of the centipede with barbed wire wrapped around his penis.[2] A teaser trailer also revealed that a baby will be in some-way involved with the plot. The penes of two of the victims will be attached to the top of the head of the lead segment.

ONE FOR THE MONEY Poster Premiere

The official poster for ONE FOR THE MONEY has just premiered on Moviefone at:

Katherine Heigl stars as Stephanie Plum, Jersey girl turned recovery agent, in the film adaptation of best selling novel by Janet Evanovich. The film also stars Jason O'Mara, Daniel Sunjata, John Leguiziamo, Debbie Reynolds and Debra Monk.

A proud, born-and-bred Jersey girl, Stephanie Plum's got plenty of attitude, even if she's been out of work for the last six months and just lost her car to a debt collector. Desperate for some fast cash, Stephanie turns to her last resort: convincing her sleazy cousin to give her a job at his bail bonding company...as a recovery agent. True, she doesn't even own a pair of handcuffs and her weapon of choice is pepper spray, but that doesn't stop Stephanie from taking on Vinny's biggest bail-jumper: former vice cop and murder suspect Joe Morelli - yup, the same sexy, irresistible Joe Morelli who seduced and dumped her back in high school.

SYNOPSIS:

Katherine Heigl brings Stephanie Plum - the popular heroine of Janet Evanovich's worldwide best-selling sixteen-book mystery series - to vibrant life in Lionsgate and Lakeshore Entertainment's ONE FOR THE MONEY.

A proud, born-and-bred Jersey girl, Stephanie Plum's got plenty of attitude, even if she's been out of work for the last six months and just lost her car to a debt collector. Desperate for some fast cash, Stephanie turns to her last resort: convincing her sleazy cousin to give her a job at his bail bonding company...as a recovery agent. True, she doesn't even own a pair of handcuffs and her weapon of choice is pepper spray, but that doesn't stop Stephanie from taking on Vinny's biggest bail-jumper: former vice cop and murder suspect Joe Morelli - yup, the same sexy, irresistible Joe Morelli who seduced and dumped her back in high school.

Nabbing Morelli would be satisfying payback - and a hefty payday - but as Stephanie learns the ins and outs of becoming a recovery agent from Ranger, a hunky colleague who's the best in the business, she also realizes the case against Morelli isn't airtight. Add to the mix her meddling family, a potentially homicidal boxer, witnesses who keep dying and the problem of all those flying sparks when she finds Morelli himself...well, suddenly Stephanie's new job isn't nearly as easy as she thought.

Starring Katherine Heigl, ONE FOR THE MONEY is a fresh, funny action-comedy directed by Julie Anne Robinson and also starring Jason O'Mara, Daniel Sunjata, John Leguiziamo, Debbie Reynolds and Debra Monk. Lionsgate and Lakeshore Entertainment present a Lakeshore Entertainment Lionsgate Wendy Finerman production in association with Sidney Kimmel Entertainment Abishag Productions. Directed by Julie Anne Robinson. Screenplay by Stacy Sherman & Karen Ray and Liz Brixius. Based on the novel by Janet Evanovich.
