Tim Burton is one of my favorite directors. I know “The Nightmare Before Christmas” by heart and left the theater with goosebumps after seeing his twisted remake of “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.” Not to mention that I admire his constantly casting Johnny Depp! Which is why I could not contain my excitement upon seeing the new promotional photos for Burton’s upcoming rendition of “Alice in Wonderland.” It’s just like Burton to take a children’s fairytale and warp it, and by the looks of these pictures, we’re in for one dark fall down the rabbit hole. In this creepily surrealist version, Alice lands back in Wonderland 10 years after her first visit, but she has absolutely no recollection of being there the first time around. Oh, and did I mention that this movie will be shown in 3-D and that you can explore the CGI scenery thanks to this cool USA Today gadget?
Sadly, the movie won’t be out until March 5 of 2010. So to tide you over, here are our favorite of the publicity images. Keep reading »
John Stamos is bringing down the house…more like “Full House.” The sitcom’s star is working on a plan to bring Uncle Jesse and the gang back to the big screen for a “Full House” movie, but don’t expect Ashley and Mary-Kate to take turns sucking on a pacifier. Stamos is recasting the show for the film version, which he told The New York Daily News “would probably take place in the early years of the sitcom,” which graced TVs across the country from 1987 to 1995. Stamos hopes James Franco will slick up his hair and take over his role as Uncle Jesse. He’d love for Steve Carell to channel Bob Saget as papa Danny Tanner, and for Tracy Morgan to get goofy as best friend Joey Gladstone. After the jump, some of our suggestions for Stamos and whatever lucky writer gets to pen this script. Keep reading »

1950s James Dean as “Jim Stark” in Rebel Without A Cause
In this classic flick about a troubled teenager with a drinking problem, James Dean makes everything look sexy from low self esteem to his red windbreaker. Too cool for school, his character, Jim Stark, fights with his teachers, bullies, his dad, his girlfriend, and even the police. We’d kill for 7 minutes in heaven with this blue-eyed star that still makes us swoon.
Honorable Mentions: Elvis in “Jailhouse Rock”, Marlon Brando in “The Wild One”
*Well, since the 1950′s. Keep reading »
The trailer (NSFW language) for “Good Dick” — the tale of a video store clerk who falls in love with a porn-renting female customer — makes this movie look deeply awesome. The romantic comedy, which played at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, was written and directed by and stars 27-year-old Marianna Palka, and costars Jason Ritter, the son of John Ritter.

Sarah Jessica Parker is thinking about going downtown. She’s had her fun as an uptown girl with Sex in the City, but now that it’s finished off, she’s looking for a new sensation. SJP is currently in talks to play an single mother in the city that lives about 50 blocks south of her old bachlorette pad in the The Ivy Chronicles. Based on Karen Quinn’s novel of the same name, it’s another guaranteed chick flick hit. But will she sign on with Warner Brothers and make the movie? [Huffington Post]

Wow. The last movie that made us this upset and confused was, like, Fahrenheit 9/11, so imagine our surprise when we found ourselves wanting to stab Ben (Seth Rogen) in the face as we shouted “Abort! Abort!” at Alison (Katherine Heigl), like she could hear us or something. Sadly, Judd Apatow, the man behind the ever more hilarious but not nearly as emotion-inspiring 40-Year-Old Virgin, probably didn’t intend for his summer blockbuster to get women involved in a heated debate about unplanned pregnancies, but, well, it did. Our highly expertised movie criticism after the jump. Keep reading »
