Kick Ass

23 02 2010

Kick-Ass tells the story of Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson,) your everyday average teenage boy who decides to become a real-life superhero after being inspired by the heroes of comic books. He soon encounters a mysterious vigilante called Big Daddy (Nicolas Cage), and his daughter Hit-Girl (Chloë Moretz), who are working to bring down the local drug baron Frank D’Amico. He also meets another vigilante, Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), who has been inspired by Kick-Ass’.

Jane Goldman and Layer Cake‘s Matthew Vaughn adapted Kick Ass for the big screen, with Vaughn as director. Brad Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment will produce.

Peep the red band trailer…

That was awesome, every once in a while us adult nerds need a R-rated superheroes film.. Honestly, anything that has Nicholas Cage in it I’M IN!!! I don’t know what wig he’ll wear or how bugged his eyes will be, and this looks to be an adventure…

Kick-Ass plans to some kick  box office as April 16th, 2010.

Hawaii Five-O

23 02 2010

…..is being coming back to the small screen. Not as re-runs of the original series that ran for 12 season (1968-1980)..No no, in the new tradition of Tv and movies, it is being remade into a new series for the modern 18-24 year old. Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci had signed on to script a pilot episode, this team will be rebooting the original concept (like 2009’s  Star Trek)

Lost’s Daniel Dae Kim has been cast to play Chin Ho Kelly, the first actor cast for the remake. Now we get word that  Moonlight and Three Rivers’s Alex O’Loughlin is cast as Steve McGarrett, taking the role from famously held by Jack Lord. Filming of the pilot for the new series is set to begin on Oahu in March 2010 for a Fall premiere on CBS.

Hmm..I’m not excited about this at all and I don’t think this will last beyond 6 or 8 episodes. Alex O’Loughlin seems to be kryptonite to new series trying to find its footing but CBS seems to like him, this is his thrid series with them. Moonlight was okay (Sorry my loyalty to Joss runs deep so I saw it as nothing more than a knock-off Angel) and Three Rivers had the dumbest concept to ever have been made into a series..Geez..Hopefully the writing is great, I expect nothing less from the guys behind the wonderfully modern Star Trek, but who needs another cop procedural? We’re on our 30th!

Maybe it’ll surprise me and become a thought-provoking new show…..Hawaii Five-O 2.0 premires in the fall…

Hugo Weaving didn’t watch Transformers or the shit-ta-cious Transformer 2? Here’s a quote from his interview with The Age.

“Michael Bay talks to me on the phone. I’ve never met him. We were doing the voice for the second one and I still hadn’t seen the first one. I still didn’t really know who the characters were and I didn’t know what anything was. It’s a voice job, for sure, and people assume I’ve spent my life working on it, but I really know so little about it.”

If only Shia can say the same………………I guess a check is a check.

Another Reason Why Firefly is Awesome!

The theme song to Joss Whedon’s Firefly, “The Ballad of Serenity”, begins at 2:55 in the above video. Astronauts are cool…:-)

Sigh..is this what TV is coming to……

William Shatner is set to star in a new pilot on CBS based on the Twitter account “S— My Dad Says”. The story is based on a Twitter feed by Justin Halpern, a 29-year-old who moved back in with his parents and documented the comments his 73-year-old dad made throughout the day. Justin co-wrote the script for the pilot! William will play Justin’s father in the pilot, which has Will & Grace creators David Kohan and Max Mutchnick serving as executive producers.

I’m not excited about this one……thats all the info for now………

Not to bad Lana Lang

22 02 2010

One of my favorite cast members of the ever-lasting ever-shit-ta-cious (just since the 6th season) Smallville was Kristin Kreuk as Lana Lang. You can tell that by the extremes of her character arc that she was miserable on the show, as soon as she left she cut off all her hair. That’s just what girls do, after a bad break up we go for a shake up. I was happy when she left the show but saddened when she starred in that awesome horrible movie Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li. Wow…Thats a career killer..or so I thought. Imagine my delight when lil Miss Kreuk showed up on my favorite show Chuck. I was practically giddy. Well I guess I wasn’t the only one,  Kristin Kreuk has landed a role in a new CBS comedy pilot, Hitched from the mastermind behind Chuck Josh Schwartz.  The show will revolve around ‘a newly married couple still learning about each other while surrounded by their family and friends’.  I Love You Beth Cooper’s Jack Carpenter has been cast as the groom and Eugene Levy as the groom’s father.
