It feels like every movie in existence released a trailer in the last two days, and now that I’ve posted them, it’s time to clear the rest of my FireFox tabs.
Paul, Black Swan have new posters. Greg Mottola’s take off on Mac & Me starring Nick Frost and Simon Pegg continues to look just weird enough that it might work, and Aronofsky’s ballerina movie now has an awesome poster. Two of the most anticipated movies of the year, and yet all I can think is “aggressive lesbian ballerina sex.” |BlackSwan, Paul|
White Director Named White to Film Film for Whites. Lionsgate offered the directing job on Pride and Prejudice and Zombies to the guy who wrote Orange County and School of Rock. Nothing against Mike White (I enjoyed School of Rock, cutesy as it was), but every time I read “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” I hear this rap song about NPR. Haha! Being a nerd is cool! (But still not that cool, so settle down, spaz).
Sacha Baron Cohen may reteam with Borat/Bruno director Larry Charles for The Dictator, a film “about the parallel stories of a goat herder and deposed foreign dictator who gets lost in this country.” If you’ll remember, this is the film for which Paramount sent Cohen a goat in a t-shirt, and roughly the eight billionth possible Cohen project reported on since Bruno. Hey, I have a novel idea, maybe we could wait until he actually films something. Just a thought. |LATimes|
Steven Soderbergh directing The Man from U.N.C.L.E., George Clooney possibly to star. Based on the 60s TV show and set in the 60s, the project is still in the early stages, but the plan would be to shoot it in late 2011. I’ll tell you how I feel about this as soon as I find someone old enough to remember The Man from U.N.C.L.E. I lost interest immediately upon finding out it doesn’t stand for University of North Carolina Lesbian Ensemble. |ThePlaylist|
And finally, an entrant into the World Biggest Twilight Fan contest says in her video (below), “I would literally take a bullet for any member of the cast, any day?” Congrats, you’re the new ‘Tard Olympics gold medalist. I hate to praise Tyra, but I have to admit, this Twilight fan contest was a lot more fun when she was lining up these fatties and making them eat pie.
