    Sam Worthington To Lead Sci-Fi Actioner From 'Prisoners' Scribe Aaron Guzikowski

    Looks like Sam Worthington is really gunning to corner the market for leading actors of sci-fi films. On top of his continued involvement in James Cameron's "Avatar" trilogy and a film adaptation of little known British sci-fi action hero Dan Dare, the Australian thespian is now set to lead an upcoming sci-fi actioner scribed by Aaron Guzkowski, the writer of the Black-listed and highly-buzzed script "Prisoners."

    Anthony Weiner’s Press Conference and the Missing “Good Wife” Moment

    It may have been entirely personal, but it also signaled an important shift in political culture: when Rep. Anthony Weiner faced the television cameras to admit that he had tweeted those crotch shots and lied about it, his wife was nowhere in sight. And instead of taking her absence as a sign of no-confidence, I’m guessing that most people were thinking, “Good for her.”

    Confirmed: Naomie Harris Is In Talks To Play Bond Girl In Next "007" Movie

    Well hot-damn! This has now officially spread like wildfire across the web over the last 12 hours, since I posted it early yesterday morning; even mainstream sites like Entertainment Weekly, Huffington Post, and many others have picked up the story. So, I figured I'd repost it, along with the fact that it has indeed been officially confirmed, posted here yesterday (reminding you of where you read it first), and later by others, that, yes, British actress Naomie Harris is indeed in talks to play the "Bond Girl" role in the next 007 movie, Bond 23. Though the actress is still mum about whether or not she'll take the role.

    "I think It Was An Insult" - Winnie Mandela Opens Up On Jennifer Hudson's "Winnie" Biopic

    Still no word on when we can expect the film to eventually make its debut; The trailer for the biopic, starring Jennifer Hudson as the titular character, and Terrence Howard as Nelson Mandela, was met with much ridicule and derision when we unveiled it last fall, to the chagrin of its producers, and maybe to the real Winnie Mandela as well - the woman whose life the film is based on, given her documented objections to the production of the film in early 2010, for which she was not consulted at all.

    BRAAAAAAAAAHM! New 'Super 8' Trailer & TV Montage Channel The 'Inception' Sound Design

    BRAAAAAAAAAHM! When you're selling things as expensive and diverse as blockbuster movies, it helps to have a formula you can follow, particularly when it comes to trailers and tv spots: it makes an audience feel safe to know that the movie that they're considering putting down their hard-earned cash for, is being marketed in a way similar to that one they enjoyed a couple of summers ago. BRAAAAAAAAAHM! In the mid 90s, for instance, it was hard to find any kind of trailer that didn't combine the phrase "In a world...," and the Hans Zimmer music from "Crimson Tide." More recently, there's the comic fake-out, most notably for kid-aimed movies about talking CGI creatures. Think you're getting a new "Harry Potter" trailer? Wrong, it's "Scooby Doo!"
