As your ninth grade English teacher once explained to you with an air of fake intrigue, William Shakespeare may not have written all of his works. Scandal! In the trailer for Roland Emmerich’s new Anonymous , that theory plays out in a full period-piece drama. And like you in ninth grade, Anonymous is not aware of how overwrought it is.
Troy Nixey’s upcoming film Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark shares elements in common with producer Guillermo del Toro ‘s Pan’s Labyrinth — the little girl heroine, the gothic old mansion, a world of fantastical creatures with sinister secrets — but its supernatural antagonists are tinier, scarier, and way more desperate for you to come “play” with them. Find out more about the goblin-like “homunculi” that live in the basement in two new clips from the upcoming horror-fantasy.
Rapper and singer and living Bratz doll Nicki Minaj — she of the latest televised nipple slip , who is currently opening for Britney Spears on tour (I’d argue it should be the other way ’round) — will make her feature film debut next summer alongside fellow rapper (and onetime Degrassi star, let’s not forget) Drake. Which envelope-pushing production will Minaj lend her chameleonic talents to in her first major screen credit?
So the Farrelly Brothers decided to give the kids from Jersey Shore a cameo in their upcoming Three Stooges reboot (Oh, the jokes write themselves…) which turned out to be such an amazing experience that Sammi “Sweatheart” Giancola, Jenni “JWoww” Farley, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, and Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi may now turn their fist-pumping sights on second careers as actors. At least when this nightmare comes to pass, we know who to blame.
The first week of August (and the official beginning of the end of summer) rolled by in fine fashion; sure, it was at times an agonizingly slow news week, but the first looks, surprise developments, and WTF ? revelations kept things bouncy. Head into the weekend with your head held high, week. You gave us plenty to munch on. For starters: The terms “Brett Ratner” and “Oscars” in the same sentence? You so crazy!
If you haven’t yet decided whether to accompany your girlfriend to One Day — the decades-spanning romance adaptation from An Education director Lone Scherfig — then maybe the following clip will help inform your choice. In it, a mousy Anne Hathaway lays on some thick, British-accented sarcasm when re-meeting a drunken Jim Sturgess.
Studio boss Jeff Robinov confirmed this week that Warner Bros. and DC Comics have every intention of exploring a sequel to Green Lantern , this despite a meager $53 million opening, a disappointing global gross around $160 million, a budget rumored to be well north of $200 million (plus $100 million in marketing) and — insult, meet injury — a fusillade of scathing reviews . “We had a decent opening so we learned there is an audience,” Robinov told the Los Angeles TImes . “To go forward we need to make it a little edgier and darker with more emphasis on action…. And we have to find a way to balance the time the movie spends in space versus on Earth.” Huh. “Edgier”? “Darker”? But how? Time to put on our Green Lantern 2 development thinking caps!
Here’s a treat for Marvel fans who live for the film-bridging post-credits scenes and cameos that have connected The Incredible Hulk , the Iron Man films, Thor , and Captain America : a short starring S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) that begins to fill in the space between the different Marvel films leading into The Avengers . After the jump, watch the deadpan Agent Coulson hatch a plan to dispatch a superhero code-named “The Consultant” — described as “arrogant and abrasive, with an utter disdain for authority.” Sound familiar?
Judging from Twitter buzz, The Change-Up is either a really funny (and really dirty) R-rated comedy with marketing that does it a great disservice, or the terrible body swap disaster that the marketing points toward. Perhaps that’s why this new promotion for the Universal laugher gets right to the core of things: Jason Bateman and Ryan Reynolds are funny and handsome, and you probably really like them. Translation: let them sell the movie! And sell they do: “It’s no dumber than a movie about a bunch of talking apes.”
