Elizabeth Banks To Play Tinkerbell

Tinkerbell first appeared in a 1920s silent film adaptation of the classic “Peter Pan” and since then this famous fairy has taken on many different incarnations. Now the little ball of glitter is getting her own movie. Elizabeth Banks will be putting on the wings for a live-action romantic comedy, “Tink,” centered on the rascally fairy. Little is known about the project, except that it is being made by the production company Banks shares with her husband and that the film will show off the fairy’s “mischievous nature.” Sure, this could be the usual cornball rom-com fare. Or it could be something way better—and given Banks’ natural cleverness and Tinkerbell-perfect looks, I’m thinking it could be good. So do you think Banks’ Tinkerbell project will take off, or have its wings clipped? [SlashFilm] Keep reading »

Quotable: Chris Nolan On Why “Inception” Took 10 Years To Make

“Yes, I’d actually been interested in doing a film set in the world of dreams ever since I was a kid, and about 10 years ago I settled in on this heist movie plot and structure, but it took me the last 10 years to finish it and get it right. It took me a while to figure out how to make an emotional connection with the material, as heist movies tend to be almost deliberately superficial in terms of emotion, and all about procedure. And I realized it had to be more about the human condition and human emotions, and that I had to work on the characters — the things that help an audience connect with the ideas, however crazy they may seem.”

– Chris Nolan, director, writer, and producer of “Inception,” explains that even though he had the idea for the film when he was a teen, it still took him 10 years to make it. And he has convinced me that “Inception” is worth seeing — something about people being able to invade my dreams gave me the heebie jeebies. Are you gonna see “Inception” when it’s released tomorrow?

What If “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” Had A “Fight Club” Twist?


The “Ferris Bueller Fight Club Theory” has been floating around the film world for a while now. The idea is—what if Cameron actually imagined Ferris Bueller as an extension of himself to fight his dull existence and deal with his love for Sloane? The way Edward Norton unknowingly created Tyler Durden in “Fight Club”? Interesting, no? Well, some fine web troller decided to make a trailer for the theory by doctoring clips from everyone’s ’80s favorite. And it turned out awesomely creepy. Enjoy! [/Film] Keep reading »

Sue Sylvester Carved In Wax


Sometimes, Madame Tussauds picks totally wack celebrities to immortalize in wax. But this is one we approve of—Jane Lynch is getting her very own figurine as Sue Sylvester, everyone’s favorite character from “Glee.” See what the process of posing for one of these things is like (above). And mark your calenders—Jane’s statue makes its debut on August 4. [Oh No They Didn't] Keep reading »

Micky Dolenz Is Back!

Sometime circa 1988, I discovered “The Monkees” on Nick at Nite. I fell instantly in love with the zany 1960s show—I loved the opening credits (“Here we come, walkin’ down the street … ); I loved the absurd humor; I loved the songs. And, of course, I loved the guys. I started out with a big old crush on Davy Jones, but as I “matured” (to maybe age 10), I realized that Micky Dolenz was where it was really at. Obviously, you take the goofball drummer with killer one-liners and a great voice over the pretty-boy frontman who plays the tambourine! So I am glad to hear that Micky will be heading to my television again soon. He’ll be appearing in “Mega Python vs. Gatoroid,” which you may remember as the Syfy movie starring Tiffany and Debbie Gibson! We have no idea who Micky will be playing—but hopefully he’ll get to sing? The film goes into production soon and will air in 2011. And I can’t wait. [EW] Keep reading »

Angelina Jolie Wants Anna Chapman At The Moscow Premiere Of “Salt”

Angelina Jolie has one request for the Moscow premiere of her new film “Salt,” in which she plays a Russian spy. She wants real-life Russian alleged double agent Anna Chapman to be the guest of honor, which would only seem fitting considering the film is practically a mirror image of her real-life circumstances. The only problem? Nobody knows how to find Anna. She is thought to be undergoing top-secret interrogation with the Russian government in an undisclosed compound. The Russian promoters of the flick have vowed to do everything possible to try to honor Angie’s personal request and they claim to have sent Anna a personal invitation. If she’s any kind of spy, she’ll just show up unannounced and looking fabulous. [NY Post] Keep reading »
