    Bruce Willis & Jean-Claude Van Damme To Show Up In 'Expendables 2'?

    Speaking to Access Hollywood during the Golden Globes, Bruce Willis let it slip in a roundabout, not totally confirmed way that "The Expendables 2" was looking to shoot this year and that he may star. "Apparently it's going to happen this year... As far as I know, barring any unforeseen circumstances, but yeah, I would love to be a part of it." Willis generated buzz with a cameo in the first film as the mysterious Church, a character who, in a draft of the script we read, has a surprising backstory that revealed him as the mastermind pulling the strings for the Expendables' suicide mission. Which, of course, ended up not suicidal at all, since Sylvester Stallone and co. might as well have nuked the place at the end of that movie.

    Golden Globes: Boardwalk Empire Wins Best TV Series Drama, Actor

    Steve Buscemi won his first Golden Globe for his lead role as Nucky Thompson in HBO's Boardwalk Empire. "I love going to work every day," he says. Well-deserved. And the show also wins best TV Series Drama. It's the most elaborate and expensive series of the nominees. Much as I love it, I prefer Madmen.

    International Sales Agent of Dhobi Ghat (Mumbai Diaries): UTV

    Dhobi Ghat means "washing area" which explains so much more of this beautiful film than "Mumbai Diaries". The washing area epitomizes the man who washes and delivers laundry to a reclusive artist and also to a rich young American Indian photographer who meets and spends a night with the artist. The Mumbai Diaries epitomize a woman whose video diary is discovered by the artist when he moves into his new apartment, an artifact she left behind, and the photographs of Shai, whose father owns buildings in the neighborhood where the story of these four people takes place. This is a very special, unusually "western" story, not like the usual commercial fare produced by and starring one of India's biggest stars Aamir Khan whose 3 Idiots was India's biggest grosser and whose Laagan was nominated in the Best Foreign Lanague Film category for the 2001 Academy Awards.

    'Transformers 3' Will Be Better Than 'Transformers 2' Says Director Of Terrible 'Transformers' Movie

    “It was kind of a mess, wasn’t it?” says director Michael Bay in an LA Times profile about "Transformers: Dark Of The Moon,", one of the expected blockbusters of next summer's blockbuster season. He's referring to the second film in the series, subtitled "Revenge Of The Fallen." It made $836 million worldwide. You probably saw it. It was popular. We don't need to say it was a raging piece of shit but, oh, well, it seemed to slip out.

    Golden Globery

    Excited? Despite awards season fatigue, I'm really looking forward to this. Ever since I got the privilege of heading Hollywood-way for the Oscars, there's always been a part of me that kind of misses just watching them at home with bffs. So the Globes have sort of become that for me now, which is a lovely have cake/eat too situation. Will be doing updates on indieWIRE and Twitter, but I'm only one man so there won't be anything going on here.

    Golden Globes: Christian Bale Wins Expected First Globe

    "It's going to be a night of partying and heavy drinking or as Charlie Sheen calls it, breakfast," says Gervais. "Everything is 3-D except the characters in The Tourist." That's a Globes-nominated movie--the audience reacts. They also don't like Gervais's suggestion that the Globes accepted bribes to nominate The Tourist.

    Action Hero Does Action In New 'Captain America' Photo

    .Mobility! Within an LA Times slide show of 2011's big movies is a new photo from "Captain America: The First Avenger" showcasing the red, white and blue freedom fighter eschewing trendy posturing for a more proactive pose. One of the criticisms of superhero costumes relates to the comfort level and how they accommodate human physiques, but this cannily-chosen snap does a good job illustrating that Chris Evans will actually get to be an action hero in his action hero pajamas.
