In what TMZ is calling a “major guy code violation,” the fan snapped a pic of Jake while he was…erm…using the facilities during a screening of his new movie “Source Code.” Jake calmly talked to the fan about the inappropriateness of the incident.
Peaceful conflict resolution! So hot right now!
The picture was eventually deleted, so if you’ve ever wanted to see some “sexy” urinal shots of Jake in action, you’ll have to wait for the next creepy fan to come along. Sorry!
Justin Bieber has had an amazing ride, considering he is only 16 years old. His record breaking music career has lead to a biopic, which documents the story of his rise to fame. We caught up with Justin on the “purple carpet” where he credits Chuck Norris as an inspiration.
Although nobody is confirming it, rumours are circulating that Justin Bieber will appear on SNL tonight. Its a fairly reasonable theory considering the Statford, Ontario native is in New York City promoting his biopic.
Although most of his fans should be in bed by the time SNL airs, perhaps Moms and Dads will let them stay up late. There is still no word if Bieber will be singing or will he just be appearing in a segment. We will wait and see.
It looks like the next Avatar movie may see the light of day as early as 2014!
Cameron is in the process of writing the next two movies and reports that he is “planning to shoot them together and post them together.” This means both movies will be done at the same time, but their releases will be staggered for around Christmas 2014 and 2015.
Cameron also divulged that all of the characters from the first movie would most likely appear in the upcoming films. “Basically, if you survived the first film, you get to be in the second film, at least in some form,” he explained.
Fox has partnered with the director to donate a large chunk of the movie’s profits to environmental causes.
The first film was basically the plot of Pocahontas, so we can’t wait to see what Disney movie Cameron rips off next! We’ve got our fingers crossed for a blue-ified High School Musical or Old Yeller!
When I think of the word ‘superhero’ Seth Rogen—the awkward fella that starred in Knocked Up or The 40-Year-Old Virgin—isn’t the first person to pop into my mind. If you compare him to other conventional fictional characters, he lacks many of the stereotypical superhero qualities. Just think of Hugh Jackman’s masculine physique in X-Men Origins: Wolverine or Christian Bale’s innate bad-boy Batman persona inThe Dark Knight and, well, you’ll know how Rogen doesn’t quite fit.
But director’s Michel Gondry’s (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Be Kind Rewind) The Green Hornet isn’t meant to be ordinary. Based on the 1936 radio series, the film details the life of Rogen’s character Britt Reid. Reid’s bachelor lifestyle of wild shenanigans and partying are rattled following the death of his father. As an heir to his father’s large company, by day Reid reigns over as a newspaper publisher and owner. At night, the masked vigilante fights crime with his father’s assistant Kato. Starring Jay Chou, Kato is best described as a “human Swiss Army Knife.” Chou’s fighting abilities are beyond impressive and outshine Rogen’s. Along with his writing partner Evan Goldberg, Rogen co-wrote the script to seamlessly match and adhere to his inability to convincingly play a typical and over-the-top superhero. And it works.
The twosome protect citizens by breaking the law in Los Angeles, the city where people think the duo are villains rather than heroes. With the help of Reid’s new secretary Lenore Case (Cameron Diaz), the pair work toward hunting down the city’s surprisingly witty underworld leader Benjamin Chudnofsky, played by Christopher Waltz. While Waltz easily mesmerized audiences with his daunting portrayal of the Schutzstaffel in Quentin Tarantino’s 2009 Inglourious Basterds, as a villain he fails—quite purposely—to entice a similar fear from his audience.
With its action-packed 3-D scenes, good humour and lightheartedness, The Green Hornet will take you on an enjoyable ride where—if you’re up to it—you can put that fly swatter you brought with you away.
Moviefone sat down with the cast of “Harry Potter” to talk about the movie, along with answering some fan questions. Here’s what they came up with.
Six years ago NASA discovered the possibility of alien life within our solar system. A probe was launched to collect samples, but crashed upon re-entry over Central America. Soon after, new life form began to appear and half of Mexico was quarantined as an INFECTED ZONE. Today, the American and Mexican military still struggle to contain “the creatures”…… Our story begins when a US journalist agrees to escort a shaken tourist through the infected zone in Mexico to the safety of the US border. Monsters opens across Canada on November 12th and is being released by D films.

Heartbeats, Xavier Dolan’s second feature film, is a realistic glance into the lives of wandering twenty-somethings. The twenty-one-year-old Quebec born actor turned filmmaker entered the scene in 2009 with the French language feature I killed My Mother. Heartbeats, also French language, falls short of his first film however, the technical aspects of his filmmaking have greatly improved.
Heartbeats chronicles the seemingly complex bisexual love triangle between three friends, Marie (Monia Chokri), Francis (Xavier Dolan), and Nicolas (Niels Schneider who looks almost exactly like French actor, Louis Garrel). While at a party, Marie and Frankie (Francis) notice Nicolas, a youthful traveler who is a dead ringer for a Greek Adonis. Marie and Frankie soon develop a suggestive relationship with Nicolas which threatens their own friendship as each of them become completely infatuated with him. The three of them share a bed together, but Marie and Frankie’s sexual desire for Nicolas is never satisfied. The film delves deeply into the notions of jealousy and centers on the cliche, “three is a crowd”.
The actors have a natural chemistry that reads well through the screen. Marie is beautiful and dresses akin to Anna Karina and other New Wave women (a possible homage to Godard). Frankie’s outward presentation is bold but he is shy and introverted. Nicolas is tan and beautiful. His demeanor is warm and yet he seems completely ignorant of the fact that he is the central object of desire for the other two characters. It is uncertain whether his coyness is intentional or simply a part of the dynamic of his friendship with Marie and Frankie. This leads to sexual ambiguity of his character which lies at the core of the narrative and if nothing else is its strength.
Did you miss “Grease” the first time? No problem! A newly restored version of the World’s most successful musical is heading back to the big screen. However there is a catch. You need to demand it comes to your city. Visit the link below to demand “Grease” to come to your city.
According to Hollywood blogger Perez Hilton, actors such as Lea Michele, Jane Lynch, and Matthew Morrison have signed contracts agreeing to work on at least three movies in the future.
A clause in the actors’ contracts originally signed for the television show reads “[The actor] hereby grants Fox three exclusive, irrevocable options to engage [the actor] in up to, respectively, three feature length motion pictures.”
This doesn’t necessarily mean that a Glee trilogy is guaranteed for the future, but FOX has the rights to the actors if that’s the route that they choose to go. After usurping American Idol as the channel’s most popular show, we wouldn’t be surprised if FOX chose to move in New Directions.
Since the “Glee Live!” tour has decided to skip over it’s Canadian neighbors, the silver screen might be the only place you can watch the show-stopping show choir off of your TV.
Mr. T has screened the new movie and he is less than impressed. “It was too graphic for me. I’ve no doubt it will do big business at the box office but it’s nothing like the show we turned out every week,” he tells the Guardian.
“People die in the film and there’s plenty of sex but when we did it, no one got hurt and it was all played for fun and family entertainment. These seem to be elements nobody is interested in anymore,” Mr. T says.
Two members of the original cast, Dwight Schultz and Dirk Benedict, are said to have filmed cameos. “Mr. T apparently refused to make an appearance,” the Guardian writes
We have a feeling someone may get a beat down by Mr. T.
E! Online reports that the final tally for the weekend box office should be $133.6 Million for Friday-Sunday. That means it’s the fifth biggest opening in history, and the third biggest superhero opening in history.
It was a strong opening, but not necessarily meeting expectations. Exhibitor Relations was calling for a ”Dark Knight”-besting $160 million opening weekend. (“In all honesty, I’m thinking more like $150 mil,” analyst Chad Hartigan said in an email last week, “but if you’re gonna go there you might as well go all the way!”) The Los Angeles Times reported the film was due for a debut of at least $140 million.
E! Online reports that Lohan has signed on to play Linda Lovelace in the indie movie “Inferno.” Lovelace is famous for her 1972 porno “Deep Throat.”
This begs the question “Is this a good career move for Lindsay Lohan?” Well the reality is nobody wants to cast her as she is a box office risk, so Lohan is limited in her options. However if she is able to pull of a good performance and not look like a complete whore, this maybe the career resuscitation she needs.
The Bond franchise’s home studio, MGM, has been under speculation for quite some time now due to large amounts of debt. The studio was expected either to sell or restructure to rid itself of debt, but so far neither has happened. As a result, Eon Productions has suspended development on the new Bond film.
“Due to the continuing uncertainty surrounding the future of MGM and the failure to close a sale of the studio, we have suspended development of Bond 23 indefinitely,” Eon Productions producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli said in a statement. They added that they “do not know when development will resume and do not have a date for the release of the film.”
The new Bond film, a sequel to Quantum of Solace with Daniel Craig returning as 007, had already been the subject of a scandal when screenwriter Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon, The Queen) reportedly quit the project after Oscar-winner Sam Mendes was hired on to direct.
Although cutie Chris Evans has said yes to play Captain America, Emily says she is not interested to play Peggy, Captain America’s love.
This story was reported by PerezHilton however there has been no reason offered by Blunt why she turned down the role.
Sources say that Keira Knightley and Alice Eve are next on Marvel’s list.
To promote Chris Rock’s soon-to-be-released movie Death at a Funeral, a feature has been released by website Die Laughing Now in which you can write a eulogy for “a family member, a friend (or foe), or even yourself.” An animated Chris Rock will then perform the eulogy in his signature comedic style.
EW.com reports that Kiefer Sutherland said that “24″ will not be moving to NBC, despite earlier talks. Sutherland and executive producer Howard Gordon decided it was time to end the TV run.
“The writers are producing the equivalent of 12 films a year, which is unheard of, and Howard felt to do a ninth would be potentially damaging,” said Sutherland. “We both felt strongly that there has been a demand and an interest in a 24 film, which would be a two-hour representation of a 24-hour day, so we felt it was time to move in that direction.”
Sutherland promises that the finale for the “24″ will queue up the movie that is currently in the works. “We wanted to create a definitive end for Jack Bauer,” explains Sutherland. “Since we do have the intention to make the feature film, it would lead into that and certainly set that up.”
As well all know Jordan is a man’s man. Women and men both love him because he is strong and charming. But Jordan does have a weak side – and How To Train Your Dragon made Jordan cry. Yes a 3D animation brings tears to his eyes. He talked about this emotional roller coaster with the directors of the film.
The Tim Burton film topped original box office expectations by the Disney executives. However one cannot be completely surprised by these results with people lining up for 11am screenings. Additionally there was strong support from British audiences which brought in $16.8 Million, even though the film almost wasn’t released in theatres there.
Another big-budget Hollywood blockbuster. Another tie-in video game. But this one has James Cameron’s name on the box, so it can’t be that bad, right?
To be fair, I had very low expectations for James Cameron’s Avatar – The Video Game. It immediately brought back horrific memories of playing through another movie tie-in videogame with a title as long as my forearm (Peter Jackson’s King Kong The Movie The Game). It has always amazed me that a videogame form of a film seems to need the suffix “The Game” tagged on to the end of the title, as if the general public wouldn’t be able to figure out that the product they are currently holding, which may say Xbox, PlayStation, or Nintendo on it, isn’t actually the film that’s currently in theatres, but a game based on said film. But I digress….
If you’re expecting any kind of spoilers about the movie from this game, you won’t find them. The game is set two years prior to the events of the film, and you play a forgettable character that really doesn’t matter. You have a wide range of choices at the start of the game as to your gender and race, but this has no affect on the rest of the game, as you soon become a nameless grunt stuck on both sides of the ensuing conflict on the planet of Pandora. The basic story is similar to that of the film in that the humans are on Pandora and the Na’vi don’t really appreciate them, but since this is a few years prior, things are a little less established, and the invading human force hasn’t set up such a large presence – at least, not yet.
Through the main arc of the game, you progress to fighting with the humans and then with the Na’vi, eventually allowing you to make moral choices as to which side of the conflict you feel more at home with. The problem with this is that the game makes it very hard to side with the technologically-inferior Na’vi, especially when you can pilot mech suits, use rocket launchers and flamethrowers when you’re human, and on the flipside use bows and arrows and command bees. Bees? Really? I think I know which side I’m going to be sticking with, thanks.
