More secrets from the comic book film set
A couple weeks ago we got to check out a mysterious-looking space ship on the Lousiana set of the big screen adaptation of Green Lantern and today we get to see another flying craft from the movie set. ComicBookMovie.com has managed to score new photos of a jet airplane on the Green Lantern set along with a bunch of news about the upcoming film. Here are the photos and some of the deets:
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.
The Incredible Hunk
Earlier this week we got to see a couple photos of Channing Tatum in full police officer uniform on the NYC set of his new film Son of No One and today we get to see a couple more pics from the set. It appears that Channing is a bit beefier in these photos … like he’s gone thru a few boxes of donuts since the last time we saw him on set:
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?

But not for real
Hottie Channing Tatum was lookin’ a little worse for the wear on the Queens set of his new film Son Of No One which is currently filming in NYC, NY this week. Fortunately, Channing‘s injuries are not real … but that doesn’t mean that he doesn’t look like he could use a hug to make him feel better:
Awww … the fake bruises plus the small porn ‘stache makes him look kinda adorable, right? I have no idea what Sons of No One is about but it appears that Channing has been cast to play an honest to goodness galoot, most likely with a heart of gold. Whatever the case may be, it’ll be fun to watch him film scenes for this new movie.

Earlier this year we learned that the big screen adaptation of the comic book series Green Lantern would begin filming in March (in 3D) and today we get our first proof that the production on the film is well underway. Here is our first photo from the set, snapped by an industrious fan, that features a shiny spaceship that will be very familiar to longtime fans of Green Lantern and his origin story:
The Green Lantern cast and crew are apparently working day and night in Madisonville, LA filming a scene that has yet to be disclosed … This morning, I received an email from a Madisonville resident who had stopped by the movie set and managed to snap this quick photo at the Mandeville Lakefront. What is that being lowered into the water, you ask? Taking the film’s context into consideration, it definitely looks like an otherworldly space craft. Anyone familiar with Green Lantern mythology should know that there is one space ship that is crucial to Hal Jordan’s origin story. That ship belonged to his predecessor Abin Sur; who crash landed on Earth before passing his duties onto the former test pilot. The intricate design of Abin’s ship has varied throughout the years, but it’s sleek, silver look has remained consistent.
Wow! This is so cool! I would love to see this thing in person but I guess the photo will have to suffice. We still have a very long time to wait before this movie hits theaters but all films have to start somewhere … why not at the beginning. I hope we get to see more from the secret set of Green Lantern in the coming weeks and months. Sneak peeks from the set will make the long wait not seem so painful.

Body by Parkour
Jake Gyllenhaal, who will star this Summer in the big screen adaptation of the video game Prince of Persia, has revealed how he managed to pump up his body to get it in peak physical condition for his role as the muscular Prince Dastan. Jake explains that he used the French martial art of Parkour (taught to him by the inventor himself) to beef up his body to look like this:
“[I] never did anything this intensive before [to change my body]. It’s a physical role. And when I commit to playing a part, it’s 110 percent,” said the 29-year-old actor. “We worked really closely with David Belle, who invented Parkour. I worked with a lot of gymnasts. I started jumping off of a lot of things that were padded and learned the fundamental stuff, and then slowly started working on harder surfaces, really carefully. And I’d say, ‘OK, I’ll try it,’ and then I’d say, ‘OH GOD. OH, please.’ But then I’d get it, and we’d go a little further and a little longer and a little higher and just kept it up,” explained Gyllenhaal, who did many of his own stunts during filming, even scaring himself at some points. “It got a little bit dicey there near the end, when they saw that I liked doing things that were dangerous. I tried my hand at things that were pushing it a little bit. There was this big 35 foot jump that I did that got a little hairy.”
Jakey poo has vowed that he plans to keep his body in shape by practicing Parkour even tho filming has wrapped on his movie … and I, for one, hope he keeps his promise. With the Summer months on the way, there will be plenty of opportunities for Jake to go shirtless. I don’t care how he gets his body to look this good, I just want him to continue ;)
Lights! Camera! Action star!!
Yesterday we got to check out the second movie trailer for the upcoming big screen adaptation of The A-Team, starring (among others) Bradley Cooper, and today we get to see photos of the Coop filming scenes in NYC for his new film The Dark Fields. Here are a few photos of Bradley on the NYC street set of Fields filming a couple of action scenes earlier this week:
According to IMDB, The Dark Fields tells the tale of a guy named Eddie (played by Cooper) who stumbles upon an experimental miracle drug that gives him super intellect, super physical ability and eventually the ability to predict events based on patterns he is able to interpret in everyday life. Cooper is paired with Robert De Niro and Abbie Cornish in this film due out in 2011. I have to say … the premise sounds very cool. It’s clear that Bradley is happy to move into the realm of action star by taking a role in The A-Team and it sounds like this new film might help cement that move. To be honest, I’d be very interested to see any movie that stars Mr. Bradley Cooper. I suspect there are still many weeks of production to be had on the NYC set of The Dark Fields … hopefully we’ll get to see more photos of the Coopman in action (or, you know … shirtless) on set :)

This is how you make the megabucks in Hollywood, y’all … take note.

Here's the beef!
Last July we got our first look at Marky Mark Wahlberg and co-star Christian Bale on the set of their new film The Fighter. Back then, Marky looked all muscular and hawt … while Christian looked like a methed-out crack head. Today we get to see new photos of Wahlberg on the set of this new film … but all those hawt muscles are now gone, replaced by a whole lot of flab:
When Mark Wahlberg first leaped to fame in the Nineties, he quickly gained a legion of female fans thanks to his toned six-pack. But spotted filming his latest film The Fighter in Los Angeles yesterday, the 38-year-old was a far cry from his former toned self as he displayed a rounded paunch. Wahlberg is playing American welterweight boxer ‘Irish’ Micky Ward in his new film, who spent several years away from the ring before being convinced to return by his half-brother Dickie Ecklund. Given the actor’s out-of-shape appearance yesterday, it is clear he is filming scenes from Ward’s three-year hiatus from boxing. When Wahlberg started filming last year, he was looking buff after training for 18 months for the role. But after taking a few months off working out, Wahlberg’s toned stomach has turned podgy in preparation for scenes featuring Ward’s brief retirement. The Fighter, which is due for release this summer, has been a long-time coming for Wahlberg, who first signed on to star in the movie in 2007. He started training immediately, but was concerned after Darren Aronofsky withdrew from directing the role, before David O Russell signed on last April. Brad Pitt was due to play Ecklund, but dropped out and was replaced by Christian Bale. Ever the method actor, Bale was spotted looking emaciated on set of the film last summer to play Ecklund, who struggled with an addiction to crack cocaine and spent time in prison for various charges, including drug possession.
Yeesh … talk about your method acting. I have to say, tho, that this weight gain by Wahlberg isn’t nearly as serious as the emaciating weight loss that Bale endured for his role in this film. Marky may be a bit beefier but he doesn’t look all that bad … Christian Bale looked TERRIBLE in the photos we saw last Summer. I would hope this new film turns out to be a box office hit … it’d be a shame for these guys to put their bodies thru this must stress for a box office bomb.
