Surely, we can do better...
Okay, I feel all sorts of feels about this news. Now, it’s not official yet, but Nick Cannon is definitely a frontrunner for this upcoming Richard Pryor biopic. And perhaps I’m even using the word “upcoming” too freely, because this movie isn’t even in production yet. I’ve been hearing about a Richard Pryor biopic for some time now, and it looks like The Butler director Lee Daniels is now attached to the project. But Nick Cannon? Surely, we can do better for a legend… no? Click inside for more.
Why So Sad, Supes?
Earlier this week we got our first look at actor Henry Cavill in character as Clark Kent as he will appear in the upcoming superhero film Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. As you may recall, Henry Cavill as Clark Kent looks exactly like Henry Cavill as Henry Cavill in a suit, so, it’s not all that exciting. Today we get our first OFFICIAL look at Cavill in character as Superman and as you can see below, he doesn’t look all that different than he did in 2013′s Man of Steel … tho, he does look a lot sadder in this new photo.

Back in 2011, the world was gifted with a little movie titled Horrible Bosses that, I have to admit, was pretty funny. Because we have been good little boys and girls, we learn today that a sequel film is headed our way later this year. A short but fairly hilarious teaser video has been released for Horrible Bosses 2 that I think will satisfy fans of the original movie. You want poop jokes? This teaser’s got you covered. Horrible Bosses 2 will hit theaters on November 26, just in time for the holidays … as the gods intended. Please enjoy.

All of your dreams are built on LIES
So, you know how we ALL know that the epically romantic love story in the 2004 movie The Notebook is pretty much the blueprint for the kind of perfect love that every single person on earth wishes for and dreams of? Well, it turns out that like most things that we see in Hollywood movies, that vision of love is a complete and total lie. Despite the fact that actors Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams fell in love and dated for some time after they wrapped The Notebook, we learn today from director Nick Cassavetes that the pair didn’t really get along very well during production of the film. In fact, Cassavetes confesses that Ryan hated Rachel so much that he tried to get her booted from the movie set. Oh that sound you hear? That’s the sound of your fragile little heart breaking into 45 million pieces :( More »
Back in January we got our first look at actor Christian Bale in character as Moses in the upcoming Ridley Scott film Exodus: Gods and Kings. Today we get a second look at Bale as Moses but this time he rockin’ the Prince of Egypt’s bitchin’ battle armor. Exodus is due out in theaters this December so promo video for the film should be released soon. For now, we have this new photo to tide us over … have a look below. More »
The TV Guide
Yesterday was a chiiiiiiiiiiiill day for me here at home. So much so that I only left the house once to run a quick errand. I managed to get some things done around the house but for the most part, I did pretty much nothing at all … except watch movies. Because I don’t have any TV shows to binge-watch right now and there aren’t a lot of summer TV shows that I’m obsessed with, my DVR is sorely empty these days. As such, I tend to watch movies on the various cable networks. The best thing about watching movies on cable all day is that you never know which old school movies will show up, reminding you of how awesome those movies were back in the day. For the first time in over 10 years, I rewatched Swimfan (2002) and Coyote Ugly (2000) and I’m the better for it. More »

Surprise! He looks exactly like Henry Cavill but in a suit
Back in May when we got our first look at Ben Affleck in costume as Batman as he will appear in the upcoming movie Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, the Interwebs exploded with a flurry of excited discussion. Today we get our first look at actor Henry Cavill in costume on the set of Dawn of Justice but I don’t expect this photo to cause much discussion at all. As you can see below, Henry is in costume as Superman‘s secret identity Clark Kent … so he basically looks like Henry Cavill in a suit. But still … Clark Kent, everybody! More »
I love it already.
We have seen some pretty awesome movie trailers over the past few days, between Aubrey Plaza‘s new zombie rom-com and what will probably be my new favorite movie The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby. Now we’ve got this fantastic little gem to look forward to—The Skeleton Twins, starring Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader as estranged siblings who reunite after 10 year. Hader plays a struggling gay actor and Wiig is married to Luke Wilson‘s character (amen to that), but is having an affair… with her scuba instructor, obvs. The draw here (other than all of that) is that this is actually a dramatic script, so while there’s plenty to laugh about, it looks like we’ll also get to see the Saturday Night Live alums going a different route. I dig it so far!
What are your initial thoughts based on the trailer?
On 'Jackie Brown,' Pam Grier, and Existential Parachute Pants!
PITNBrs, in my dream world I eat pizza all day, I have an endless supply of black eyeliner, and I get to sit around and relive the magic of my favorite movies. The other day, I was so excited because I got to do the latter, thanks to the amazing folks at your new favorite 90s pop culture podcast, Existential Parachute Pants. Yeah, baby. So today, I have to give a major shouts-out to Chris Morgan (follow him on Twitter, or I’m not your friend anymore) and Seth Macy (on Twitter, same goes for him), who asked me to join them in an in-depth conversation about a Quentin Tarantino movie with which I only recently fell in lurve, Jackie Brown. Youc an list to the podcast HERE, or in iTunes HERE. Click inside so I can tell you a little more about this awesome experience!
Finally! A zombie movie I can get with.
Let me preface all of this by saying that I can’t staaaand zombie movies or zombie-related TV shows. As with most things, this stems from childhood experiences. I saw Night of the Living Dead once (maybe twice) as a kid, and for a good portion of my life was plagued with zombie-related nightmares from which I have yet to fully recover. So every time I try to watch things like The Walking Dead or World War Z, I just freak the freak out. Enter Life After Beth. Aubrey Plaza (who is, apparently, my new fave movie star or something) is a zombie I can totally deal with. She’s cute, she’s quirky, but she just eats people sometimes. She’s starring alongside some of my other faves—Dane DeHaan, John C. Reilly, Anna Kendrick, and Molly Shannon and this whole thing looks really fun. Peep the video for more!
