Penelope Cruz in Pirates 4!!

15 02 2010

Penelope Cruz Joins 'Pirates of the Caribbean' with Johnny Depp?

Rumor Alert: Several reports are saying that Penelope Cruz is close to signing onto Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. We all know that Penelope is a strong actress, anyone is better than Keira Knightly’s Elizabeth Swan, in the 2nd and 3rd she was just plain annoying. I kept hoping the Kracken would swallow her whole. One can dream, eh? I don’ have any objection to Penelope. Her potential casting brings up another casting choice thats been stuck in my craw since the 1st one, what happen to Zoe Saledena’s character? I know that Zoe isn’t hurting for roles now, but there was a period in her career where she did shit-ta-cious movie after another. I would’ve thought that when they announced Pirates 2, her character being the other women on the all male Black Pearl shop, she would have a pretty meaty part. I guess the studio didn’t want  her to upstage Ms. Knightly….With ST2 and Avatar 2, that tells me that she fired the agent who didn’t get her the role in Pirates 2.


Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides comes to theaters May 20, 2011……


Killers Trailers…

I have a love/hate relationship with Ashton Kutcher….I, like most people, think that he is a douche. My personal feelings towards an actor shouldn’t cloud my judgement of an actor’s work. Thats why Ben Affleck had to go behind the camera to help his career move forward, no one could forgive him for Gigli or that Bennifer nonsense. So, trying to be a respectable critic :-), I have to separate my personal feelings for the actors… so….here’s the trailer.

Eh..Its like a bootleg version of True Lies…. It looks fun, an obvious comedic tone, and a shirtless Ashton–but do I want to spend $9 to see it.  Its directed by Robert Luketic, the man behind the shit-ta-cious The Ugly Truth and Monster-In-Law. Doesn’t exactly bode confidence, does it? don’t know…Jury’s still out on this one…..,

Shirtless Ashton and Katherine Heigel’s (meh)  Killers kills into theaters June 4, 2010.

Get Him to the Greek Trailer

I am a Judd Apatow fan, have been since his wonderfully funny but cancelled Undeclared. All his movies, directed or produced,  have pretty much been slam dunks at the box office and in my DVD collection (Haven’t seen Funny People, kinda don’t want to. Some fan, huh?)

Judd has decided to take the character Aldous Snow, portrayed by the hilarious brit Russell Brand, and build a movie about his crazy antics. As you know, Aldous is the rock star that Sarah Marshall was cheating  on her boyfriend Peter with, in Forgetting Sarah Marshall (if you don’t know, then maybe you should check that out too).

check the trailer out.

Funny. I think that Russell is hilarious. Add this to the countless hits under Judd’s belt. Due out June 4, 2010

To give you a little taste, here’s Aldous being a rockstar…

Aah!!!!Last Airbender Trailer!!!!!

15 02 2010

Look below!

(Falls to the floor.) Let me catch my breath. That was awesome!! So very AWESOME!! I’m drooling over here.

Only one real criticism, what endeared Aang (The last Airbender’s name) to us was his innocence. He was a child, the writer’s made sure we knew that, that was given this colossal responsibility. Over the course of 3 seasons, we see this child eventually accept his future, grew as a human but still retain his youth. In this trailer, I didn’t get it. Then again M. Night, is cramming what took a whole season to tell into one movie. So we’ll see….I’m still excited!!!

The Last Airbender bends its way into theaters July 2, 2010.

Stretch Armstrong movie - Taylor Lautner


Yea……no answer right. Question 2- why is Taylor Lautner going to play him? Question 3-is he going to bring his cut-off jeans? Question 4-why is it going to be in 3D…….Yea, 3D, another movie that is getting the 3D treatment. So many questions…..It appears yet again that in Hollywood acting ability is not needed to be a movie star, there is a big difference between a movie star and an actor, to make it big. All you have to do is be in a shit-ta-cious popular tween movie and gained 30 lbs  of muscle, then you’ll be in-demand. He is already getting a reported 7 million dollars to star in a Northern Lights with Tom Cruise. Another movie on the pipeline for Mr. Lautner, is the big screen adaptation of the animated cartoon Max Steel…yea…..They sure are giving his muscles are work out…….sigh….wonder how the new Taylor Lautner-style Stretch Armstrong action figure will look like. The script is penned by Steve Oedekerk (Bruce AlmightyKung Pow: Enter the Fist), produced by Brian Grazer (American Gangster,The Da Vinci Code) so he might bring his partner in crime Ron Howard to direct (just a rumor)

Sigh…again I will keep you updated on this…..this…..IDK………

Avatar: The Last Airbender

6 02 2010

The Last Airbender is a film adaptation of the popular cartoon series Avatar: The Last Airbender (the name was shortened so it wont be confused with James Cameron’s billion dollar movie). I happened upon this series and was blown away. The story, the character,—-I had never seen a cartoon with such depth and a culture all its own. I have watched every episode of its short 3 season run. Although the show ended nearly all its storylines, I have often wondered how the marvelously detailed series would look with real actors. It looks like I got my wish. But with every wish comes wishers’ remorse. Here are my reservations: The series is greatly infused with asian culture, yet the cast race rages from Indian to Caucasian. When you think about it, thats not that big of a deal and the least of my worries. That actually opens up the world of avatar, instead of the movie just catering to one  nationality, its more international. Okay..I already put one on my fears to rest, still I’m worried. The director that is bring my beloved ‘toon to the big screen is none other than M. Night Shyamalan (he is also adapting it the series)…sigh…M. Night’s career started out so promising with The Sixth Sense, peaked with Signs, and last years The Happening solidified the slum. One thing I will give to him, he is a storyteller. In this day and age of garbage like Twilight, you need a director than knows how to weave a compelling story. The Happening has left a bad taste in my mouth (really the enemy was wind?), but just maybe this will be the movie that will reinvigorated him and get him back to his sixth sense glory. I swear if they make The Happening 2, I will murder a small cat!!

Here’s the teaser trailer and the TV spot for The Last Airbender.

I think Cop Out is a Cop Out…..sigh…..

6 02 2010

Initaily I was so excited for this new Kevin James directed movie starring Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan. The orignal title was A Couple of Dicks. although that title does suggest a dirty schazez is soon coming, alas its a buddy cop movie. Still excited!! As a fan of Kevin James (I liked Jersey Girl), the prospect of him directing a movie without writing it made this movie a must see. Of course the higher-ups werent going to let Dicks stay in the title of the movie, so it changed to Cop Out. Then we got a trailer for it…….

“I was in the moment and the moment said slap you.”……sigh……A trailer is usually a visual synopsis of a movie thats not supposed to give you a lot of detail. Basically, you shouldn’t figure out the movie, even the end, by just the trailer. Thats the problem with a lot of trailers, either gives you too much or they just lie to you (The Invisible anyone). But the trailer should to hook you, thats why you see so many explosions and whatnot. So this trailer……..sigh……You either like Tracy Morgan or you don’t. But Bruce Willis…….you’re too good for this. Hopefully it’s not as bad as the trailer makes it out to be…….sigh….thoughts?

Cop Out hits theater Feb. 26, 2010
