That-Ish-Cray Of The Day
Mike Senna is a total genius with a heart of gold, and he’s making children everywhere very, very happy. Well-known for creating an R2-D2 replica back in 2003, Mike took on another project a few years ago; bringing Pixar‘s robot WALL·E to life. Children and adults alike flock to see his spot-on re-creation (I know I’m planning a trip), but Mike had a special group of children in mind as he worked (and worked) on this robot over the last two years. Using the 2008 movie as his only blueprint, Mike studied frame after frame of WALL·E‘s movements and construction. The result? A real, live robot (sort of– it’s controlled by Mike) with ginormous eyes in which you can happily lose yourself. Meet Mike and WALL·E in the video; it’s so amazingly cray, I just had to share it with you guys! Also, you can learn more about WALL·E on Mike‘s blog, here.
And I know he probably gets this alot… but I reaaalllly want to know if his

The All-Star Ensemble Cast Strikes Again!
Now I’m not sure if we really need another big family wedding movie, but we’re getting one anyway! At least this one has an all-star cast that you really can’t complain about: Bob De Niro (I call him ‘Bob‘ sometimes), Susan Sarandon, Robin Williams, Diane Keaton, Katherine Heigl, Topher Grace, Amanda Seyfriend, and Ben Barnes (the groom) are all teaming up in a movie about love, marriage, and one common human thread: lying to your Mom (sorry Mom). I love all of these actors individually, so we’ll have to see how they pan out as an ensemble cast. Another site posted the trailer and titled their article, ‘The Big Wedding’ Trailer: You Are Cordially Invited to Every Rom-Com Ever.’ LMAO. Others are reminding readers of a little film called New Year’s Eve, but I’m going to remain positive here. I have high hopes for The Big Wedding (despite that feeling in my gut, and a real concern over the title)! Plus, it’s always hilarious to see De Niro doing the normal guy, non-gangster thing. Check out the trailer and tell me what you think! Also, am I the only person who seriously misses the days when Robin Williams ruled the world? No? Nobody else?
The Big Wedding comes out on October 26.
'Much Ado' will Premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival
This Year's 'Drive'?!
Now I don’t know how I feel about calling any film– no matter how poignantly gangster it might be– ‘this year’s Drive.’ But, I am excited to hear that this is what critics are saying about Killing Them Softly. Brad Pitt plays Jackie Cogan, a seasoned enforcer who comes to Boston (hells yeah!) to set some small-time crooks straight. The movie is directed by Andrew Dominick who also directed Pitt in his 2007 Oscar-nominated hit The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. Between the two of them, Ray Liotta, and James Gandolfini (The Sopranos), I think it makes sense for mob movie-lovers to get excited.
Check out the trailer and get deets on the film inside!
Everyone Else Looked Good Too, But Seriously. Jessica.
So apparently, pink is the new black. And blog. Jessica Biel showed up at the Total Recall premiere in Hollywood and kinda did it on ‘em! Dior Couture dress? Check. Louis Vuitton shoes? Check. Jimmy Choo bag? Check. Tommy Binns (whoever that is) jewels? Check. So yeah, that’s how she rolls. Other celebs were at the premiere as well– Colin Farrell, Michael Ealy and Kate Beckinsale were all looking quite good– but soon-to-be-Mrs.-Timberlake‘s look was my personal fave. Check out the gallery so you can get your oohs and aaahs on.
Miley Cyrus‘s friend Vijat Mohindra recently posted some very steamy pics of the newly-engaged singer/actress on his photography website, and there is some talk that this was not the agreement. Allegedly, the photos– especially one in particular which showcases a nude Miley in the bathtub– were meant for Miley‘s fiancé Liam Hemsworth, and no one else was to see them. Well, they’re online now, so here’s hoping this is just a rumor. I’m not trying to break up a happy home, if ya know what I mean :) Check out the pics inside!

Jersey's In The Building!
Julian Farino has been changing our lives for many years, although most of us wouldn’t recognize his name. He directed many episodes of HBO‘s Entourage (Emmy-nominated four times), and also brought us a few episodes of The Office. Now he’s making his feature film directorial debut with The Oranges, and I just had a grand ol’ time watching the trailer. I’d have to say that I’m most excited about the cast for this film: Hugh Laurie (House!) and Leighton Meester (Gossip Girls!) play an extremely unlikely (and barely legal) couple who combat the response (and disapproval) of respective family members, played by Catherine Keener (who I luuuurve!), Allison Janney, Oliver Platt, and Adam Brody. I haven’t seen a lot of Brody‘s work but if you watched The O.C. or Gilmore Girls, you know the name. The other actors are insanely brilliant and I expect very good, very hilarious things. Peep the trailer and tell me what you think. Can Laurie and Meester pull off the odd couple to end all odd couples?
And shouts-out to Jersey! The film is set in West Orange– right next door to Orange, New Jersey, where I lived for about a year. Good times, good time.
"Lights go off all the time, honey"
Yesterday we got to see 2 short preview teasers for the forthcoming sequel film Paranormal Activity 4. Today, we get to see the full first trailer. Paranormal Activity was “filmed” using a video camcorder. Paranormal Activity 2 was “filmed” using security cameras. Paranormal Activity 3 was “filmed” using a VHS recorder. As you can see, the footage this time around was “filmed” in an updated, clever way. Does it look scary to you?
Zac Efron in his Undies? Yes, Please!
Last year we saw on set photos of Zac Efron wearing only his undergarments while filming the new Lee Daniels film The Paperboy. Today, all these months later, we get to see the first video trailer released for the film. Set in the crime-filled and sex-charged swamplands of South Florida in the 1960′s, The Paperboy stars Matthew McConaughey, Zac Efron, David Oyelowo, Macy Gray, John Cusack and Nicole Kidman. After you get an eyeful of the trailer above, click below to see the film’s movie poster and learn more about the somewhat confusing storyline. More »
