Director Raja Gosnell is currently shooting Sony Pictures’ The Smurfs in New York City and Hank Azaria was spotted today in character as Gargamel … In the 3D August 3, 2011 release, the evil wizard Gargamel chases the tiny blue Smurfs out of their village and they tumble from their magical world into ours – in the middle of Central Park. Just three apples high and stuck in the Big Apple, the Smurfs must find a way to get back to their village before Gargamel tracks them down. The cast includes Neil Patrick Harris, Jayma Mays, Sofia Vergara, Anton Yelchin, Jonathan Winters, Katy Perry, Alan Cumming, Fred Armisen, George Lopez, Paul Reubens, John Oliver, Kenan Thompson, B.J. Novak, Jeff Foxworthy, Wolfgang Puck and Gary Basaraba.
I’m still not sold on this idea to bring The Smurfs into the world of CGI but I am impressed with Azaria‘s portrayal of Gargamel. I mean, he looks EXACTLY like Gargamel in the flesh. Check out the photos after the jump … More »
As you may recall, East Fifth Bliss is a comedy film so we’ll be seeing a bit of a different side from Michael C. Hall. I cannot get over how great he looks in these photos. That smile, it’s all about that charming smile. Hall‘s wife and Dexter co-star Jennifer Carpenter has already informed us that he is now cancer-free but photos like this really drive the point home. I’m just so happy that MCH is lookin’ so well. Wee!!
Earlier today, Christina Aguilera created quite a stir with the release of her new music video for Not Myself Tonight (the lead single off her new album Bionic) but right now we get to check out another video from Ms. Xtina that might appeal to fans. Access Hollywood brings us a full-length performance from the set of Xtina‘s new film Burlesque which looks nothing like her new video for Tonight but does look a bit like her days working at the Moulin Rouge:
I mean … yeah. If Xtina is lookin’ to avoid criticism that she is copying others I don’t know that this clip is going to help her cause. I’m certain that Burlesque isn’t meant to look exactly like the film Moulin Rouge but I can’t help but think Moulin Rouge as I watch this performance clip. I’m guessing the music used in this clip will NOT be used in the film — which is a good thing. I’m not crazy about this clip … what do you think?
Gerard Butler, actor and shameless cad, surfaced on the Belgrad set of the big screen adaptation of the William Shakespeare tragedy Coriolanus this week lookin’ like a sexy hunk of Jennifer Aniston-lovin’ man beef. I guess I never pegged Butler as a fan of the Bard but he seems really gung ho in playing the big bad in this movie version of Coriolanus:
I read Coriolanus back in college (like, a million years ago) and for the life of me, I cannot really remember what the play is all about. I do know that Gerard is playing Tullus Aufidius (the bad guy) to Ralph Fiennes‘ Coriolanus (the good guy) and that Vanessa Redgrave will play Volumnia (Coriolanus‘s mother). I understand this adaptation of the play, directed by Fiennes btw, will have a bit of a modern slant to it — which I love! I am a huge Shakespeare fan and I really love when his work is adapted into modern settings. Now that I know this adaption is on the way, I’m gonna hafta bust out my Collected Works of Shakespeare book and refresh my memory on the plot of this play. I gotta say, I’m intrigued.
Here are a couple photos of funny man Steve Carell and hottie man Ryan Gosling filming a scene at Westfield Century City here in LA this past Monday for their new film Untitled Marital Crisis Comedy. As far as I know, and according to IMDB, this is the actual name of the film … kinda in the same vein as the spoof comedy film Not Another Teen Movie. In any event, Steve and Ryan looked quite the bosom buddies on set earlier this week:
As I understand it, Steve plays a guy whose wife (played by Julianne Moore) wants a divorce … so he goes to a life coach (played by Ryan Gosling) to try and save his marriage. I would assume there will be quite the opportunity for Carell‘s comedic stylings to provide the laughter. You know, as much as I love Ryan Gosling in serious dramatic roles, I think I love him even more when he’s being funny. He was amazing in Lars and the Real Girl and that was fairly humorous. I’m guessing that he will be showcasing his comedic talents in this new flick. We’re gonna hafta wait until next year to see Untitled Marital Crisis Comedy in theaters but if Gosling is in it, I’ll be there to see it.
Michael C Hall has been bravely battling Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and it looks like he is definitely winning the fight. RadarOnline.com is glad to be able to bring you the pictures that show the Dexter star looking hearty and healthy once again. Hall, who lost all his hair due to chemotherapy treatments, and appeared frail and sickly at the Golden Globe awards just months ago, was spotted on location as he returned to work Monday. The actor was kitted out in a very convincing wig as he filmed scenes for his upcoming movie, East Fifth Bliss. Movie goers will be in for a surprise, as the film is a comedy, a distinct change of pace from Michael C Hall’s Dexter character – who is a vicious, though moralistic, serial killer.
Yay!! This is the best news ever. Even tho Michael C. Hall has to wear a wig right now, he looks totally back to his good ol’ self. What is most shocking to me is the thought of MCH starring in a comedy film … I don’t even know what to think about that. I hope we get to see more photos of MCH hard at work on his new film … it’ll be good practice for when he starts work on the next season of Dexter this Summer. You are lookin’ damn good, Michael … it’s amazing to see you looking so well :)
More pictures from the production of “Green Lantern” have surfaced and this time they are taken from hangars at Lakefront Airport in northern New Orleans, Louisiana. In the photos obtained by a contributor for Comic Book Movie, a jet fighter that will used for the filming is seen landed at one of the hangars. The plane, which is dominated with white and blue colors, features Ferris Aircraft logo in a particular spot. The ‘experimental’ YF-32 jet that will be piloted by Martin Jordan, Hal Jordan’s father, will be used for a pivotal scene in the movie and will cause the demise of the character played by Jon Tenney … “Green Lantern” tells the story of Hal, the alter ego of Green Lantern, who is also an ordinary man chosen by a dying alien named Abin Sur to receive a green energy-powered ring used for protecting the planet. Ryan Reynolds leads with Mark Strong tackling the role of villainous Sinestro. The superhero flick is planned to hit U.S. theaters on June 17, 2011.
The movie won’t be in theaters for OVER a year now, the film *just* started filming and we’re already getting to see all of this very cool stuff. I understand that the first trailer for Green Lantern will be showing at San Diego Comic Con this July and the first teaser posters are due for release this Fall. Remember the concept art we saw back in February … well some of it has turned out to be authentic stuff … and we cannot forget that it has been reported that Green Lantern‘s suit will be completely computer generated — in 3D! I am SO excited to see this film, I cannot wait!! I hope we get to see more stuff from the set … this tiny bit of spoilery stuff is way too much fun to see :)
Here are a few photos of Jake Gyllenhaal filming a fight scene earlier this week with a co-star on the Montreal, Quebec set of his new film Source Code. As you can see, Jakey poo was laying the smack down on his poor, unsuspecting compatriot:
As much as I love Jake, I’m afraid he doesn’t have much of a sexy fight face. I mean, I guess I like that he’s playing a tough guy but I’m of the mind that our dear Jake is a lover, not a fighter. As you may recall, when last we saw him on the set of Source Code, he was lurvin’ all up on his his pet pooch Atticus. I much prefer seeing those photos (for various reason) over these photos. I guess I can forgive the forced aggression but, yeah, he makes a much dreamier heartthrob when he’s not trying to play the tough guy.
Yeah, the Chan Chan man looks bulkier in these pics as if he’s got some padding underneath his uni. I gotta admit, tho, that I still like what I see. I think I’m still under the powerful sway of the porn’stache … please don’t hate me. I cannot be alone here, right? Anyone? He’s still really hot right?
Last week we got to see Channing Tatum lookin’ a bit banged up (but not for real) on the Queens, NY set of his new film Son of No One and today we get to see a couple new pics from the movie set. Today, Channing isn’t bruised or battered … he’s just rockin’ a surprisingly sexy police officer’s uniform:
The uniform coupled with the porn’stache … I gotta say, I’m lovin’ this new look. I know that some of you may not be responding to the look of this new character like I am but I dunno, y’all … this version of Channing really works for me. Am I alone here … does anyone else see a hot cop in these pics?
