Ah, to be in university again. The days of
studying rowdy roommates, midnight pranks and rocking out with a broom guitar and lampshade hat.
Pixar released the new trailer for the Monsters Inc. prequel, Monsters University, where the gang go back to college. Mike and Sulley are
diligent students at the University of Fear but don’t really get along.
We can’t wait to see the animated film, which stars Billy Crystal, John Goodman and Steve Buscemi, but it’s not out until 2013!!
Way to make us wait.
Not sure if you caught the
sn ooze-fest Oscars last night but the best parts of the opening monologue included a romantic kiss between a suave George Clooney and an unconscious Billy Crystal, and later an appearance from Justin Bieber. The pop star’s presence was apparently Crystal’s way of drawing in the 18 to 24-year-old demographic.
The sketch, which parodies Woody Allen’s Midnight In Paris, had Bieber chumming with
Billy Crystal Sammy Davis Junior on their way to kill Hitler. The tux-wearing singer said to Crystal: “What’s up? I’m here to get you the 18-24 demographic. So how long do you want me to sit here for?” Then he gazed in the distance for a grand total of 15 seconds.
The Oscars are finally trying to do something to draw in a younger audience.
Did it work for you or did it turn you away?
As much as I’d like to, I’d be totally amiss to bypass Valentine’s Day altogether. So instead, fellow singletons, or couples, lets have a masochistic moment and watch this sappy video, which presents the many ways our favourite film characters have said I love you over the years.
Watch the awkward (Michael Cera, Woody Allen) to the smokin’ hot (Ryan Gosling, Daniel Craig) and the inexplicable (Nicolas Cage, Dany Carvey). Just make sure to hold out to the end when we get over 30s seconds of kissing scenes. Oh, and also remember a box of tissues.
The film adaptation of the Broadway musical Hairspray will be dancing its way into Toronto this summer.
Reportedly set to feature John Travolta, Billy Crystal and Queen Latifah, the film will be shot in both T.O. and Baltimore, according to the Toronto Star.
Although they?ve refused to confirm or refute casting and location details, producers are currently wooing Travolta to play the role of Edna Turnblad, which would require the actor to cross-dress.
They have also spoken with Crystal and Latifah about playing the parts of Wilbur, Edna?s husband, and Motormouth Maybelle, respectively.
This week New Line Cinema began holding auditions for the main character of Tracy Turnblad, a chubby girl who becomes an instant celebrity after appearing on a ?60s TV dance program in Baltimore.
The film?s budget is estimated to around $75 million (U.S.).
