3 Simple Suggestions for a Global Clue Remake

Two and a half years ago, Universal announced that Clue was getting a big-screen revamp in the form of a global caper directed by Gore Verbinski. Well, most of that information remains true: Clue , Gore Verbinski, and globetrotting are all part of the picture, but Universal has dropped the property in favor of its other board game-based projects like Candy Land , Battleship , Ouija , and the Taylor Lautner-attached Stretch Armstrong . Now, here’s what makes Clue different than other board games — at least in my eyes: It rules , and those properties don’t. In order to protect the valor of Clue , Movieline is offering three ways for the film to retain the sinister cool of its original film and game(s). Frankly, Miss Scarlet, we give a damn.

Miley Cyrus Signs on for New Comedy

Miley Cyrus created quite the stir this week when she got a new tattoo, seemingly in defense of gay marriage, and then evoked God when defending her belief in equality . But, give the singer/actress credit, she isn’t backing down from this fight. According to The Hollywood Reporter , Cyrus is attached to an untitled comedy written by Sam Brown and Jack Angelo. Not much is known about it, but the reliable publication describes the film’s plot as involving “a broken promise to God.” Miley has a pair of other grown-up films in the way: So Undercover and LOL . Boyfriend Liam Hemsworth , meanwhile, is also set to make it big: he will star in next March’s big screen version of The Hunger Games as Gale.

4 New Stills from Madonna’s W.E.: You Must Love Evita

Madonna’s directorial feature W.E. seems like a statelier version of Julie and Julia : A woman name Wally Winthrop (Abbie Cornish) living in 1998 New York is enamored by the decades-old romance of Wallis Simpson (Andrea Riseborough) and Prince Edward (James D’A rcy). New stills from the film — which will premiere at the Venice Film Festival before heading to Toronto — owe less to, say, The King’s Speech and more to movies in Madonna’s own oeuvre.

Get Animated with the Sexy Stars of Cartoon-Inspired Movies [PICS]

She’s halfway to becoming a cartoon character herself, so it was only appropriate that Katy Perry would voice Smurfette in the new live-action/animation hybrid The Smurfs , which hits theaters this weekend. While the movie doesn’t answer the age-old question “Is Smurfette the only female Smurf? If so, does that make her the town bicycle (you know, everybody’s had a ride)?”, but we did get this smurfin’ great panty peek from Katy, scantily dressed as always at the film’s premiere. Katy might be relegated to struttin’ her stuff at film premieres, but she’s far from the first sexy star to bring, ahem, adult appeal to a cartoon-inspired family flick. Dads need to have something to look at when they accompany the kiddies to the movies, right? Join us after the jump for sexy pics of Halle Berry , Rachael Leigh Cook , Kelly Lynch , and more!

So you know the acting in that one set the bar soooo high for Amby Cakes. Amber tweeted the above photo along with a lil info about the film: At least we know Vivica Fox is no snob. SMH.

She’s filming the last two weeks of August, however there is currently no scheduled release date for the project.

‘Cowboys & Aliens’: The Reviews Are In!

Western meets sci-fi flick is full of ‘nifty scenes,’ but ‘unappealing’ overall, critics say. By Terri Schwartz Harrison Ford and Daniel Craig in “Cowboys and Aliens” Photo: Universal With a concept as inspired as “Cowboys & Aliens” and an A-list cast that brings together James Bond and Indiana Jones themselves, it’s hard to imagine what could possibly have gone wrong between bringing the movie from the production room to the big screen. MTV’s Splash Page blog found a lot to love about the movie despite its flaws, but other critics have not been so kind. Maybe it was the fact that director Jon Favreau took the summer blockbuster too seriously. Fans hoping for a tongue-in-cheek mash-up of a Western and an alien movie are in for a straight-laced action flick without a lot of room for humor, like in Favreau’s “Iron Man” films. Even the movie’s charismatic leads couldn’t rescue “Cowboys & Aliens” from its identity crisis, critics are saying. Still, there was plenty to love about the movie as well. “Cowboys & Aliens” is certainly a fun ride to take this summer, so before you head to the multiplex this weekend, take a gander at the “Cowboys & Aliens” reviews we lassoed up for you. The Story “The whole aliens-on-the-frontier incongruity never comes to much, really. There are nifty scenes, like the horseback riders battling silvery skeletal airplanes, but what ‘Cowboys & Aliens’ lacks is a good story. Basically, the characters — [Daniel] Craig’s enigmatic outlaw, [Harrison] Ford’s scowling boss, a tribe of Apache — must put aside their differences to form a posse and defeat the invaders. Who do we care about onscreen? For all of Craig’s edgy charisma, no one. ‘Cowboys & Aliens’ has fun moments, but it’s a plodding entertainment because it mostly tastes like leftovers.” — Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly The Leading Men “In Daniel Craig, the movie has what feels awfully like the second coming of Steve McQueen. Maybe it’s the laser blue eyes under the broad forehead, or the laconic refusal to speak except when absolutely necessary, but Craig has a presence here that feels downright mythic. … The chance to be as mean as he wants to be energizes [Ford], whose storied crankiness finally finds a home. It’s a character part, and you can sense Ford’s relief at letting another man shoulder the load. Consciously or not, there’s a generational passing of the baton just under this movie’s surface, and it helps immensely that Craig’s up to the task.” — Ty Burr, The Boston Globe The Cowboys and the Aliens “In Hollywood’s ancient prime, maybe a third of all movies were Westerns. But those days are as dead as the horse-mounted cavalry; in the past 30 years, the genre has been resuscitated only when some powerful director wanted to make a movie like the ones he grew up loving. So ‘Cowboys & Aliens’ has got to get to the aliens pretty damn quick. Even here, Favreau and his crew sprinkle a few memorable moments: the aliens’ low-flying scout planes, looking like 10-winged titanium dragonflies and lassoing the townspeople for abduction; a desert vision of an upside-down steamship, which momentarily summons the ghost of Werner Herzog’s ‘Fitzcarraldo’; and the recurring image of Craig retrieving his cowboy hat, whether he’s fighting off human varmints or escaping from the aliens’ stronghold. A man ain’t a man without his Stetson.” — Richard Corliss, Time The Concept “Cowboys versus aliens is a concept that may make you smile in anticipation, but wipe that smile off your face before buying your ticket, because the film takes its subject seriously — deadly seriously in the case of Harrison Ford, who plays a nasty rancher with the snarls and scowls that have become his trademarks, as if in penance for being so charming in the past. One interesting twist has a posse of cowboys teaming up with the Apaches they fear in order to vanquish the aliens, but the storytelling, punctuated by incoherent flashbacks, is often inscrutable.” — Joe Morgenstern, The Wall Street Journal The Final Word “A leaden mash-up of western and science-fiction elements that ends up noisy, grotesque and unappealing, this Jon Favreau-directed film features five producers (including Brian Grazer and Ron Howard), six executive producers (Steven Spielberg and Ryan Kavanaugh among them) and six credited writers, led by ‘Star Trek’ rebooters Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci and ‘Lost’s’ Damon Lindelof. No wonder the film plays like a business deal more than a motion picture. Listed as a producer, not a writer, is Scott Mitchell Rosenberg, whose concept for the original graphic novel inspired the film. That’s right, ‘Cowboys’ doesn’t even retell the story the graphic novel does; it sets out on its own. This is not a satisfying journey.” — Kenneth Turan, The Los Angeles Times Check out everything we’ve got on “Cowboys & Aliens.” For breaking news and previews of the latest comic book movies — updated around the clock — visit SplashPage.MTV.com .
