Enter For A Chance To Win Passes To See PITCH PERFECT 3 In San Antonio

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."

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.

Keaton & Monaghan To Star In "Penthouse North"

Michael Keaton and Michelle Monaghan will star in Penthouse North, a psychological thriller being directed by Joseph Ruben.


Lionsgate is handling foreign sales for the thriller and is shopping it in Toronto. The pic will begin production in Canada’s capital, Ottawa, in November.

The plot centers on a photojournalist (Monaghan) haunted by a tragic event who has escaped from the world in an upscale New York penthouse. The world comes after her with a vengeance in the form of a smooth but sadistic criminal (Keaton) looking for a hidden fortune, with the woman mustering her inner strength to survive.

David Loughery, who wrote the thrillers Obsessed and Lakeview Terrace, penned Penthouse and is also producing.

Monaghan will be in Toronto for the premiere of Machine Gun Preacher, the Marc Forster movie in which she stars opposite Gerard Butler. She was last seen in Summit’s Source Code.

Keaton was recently heard in Toy Story 3 as the voice of Ken and appeared in
the Will Ferrell comedy The …

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 wa…

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 th…

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.

The fast-talking actor-comedian is in talks for a role in The Silver Linings Playbook for writer-director David O. Russell and The Weinstein Co. Tucker hasn't been on the big screen since 2007, when he last reprised his detective role opposite Jackie Chan in Rush Hour 3.

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 b…

Gillian Anderson "Scully" Up For X Files 3

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.

“I hope it will happen, there’s talk of it,”  “I don’t know who’s writing it but I hear there’s something going on,” she said.
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.”

Young Adult Teaser Poster Starring Charlize Theron

S 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, jus…

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 b…

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 …

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.

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 suf…

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.
