Last night, I had the supreme good fortune of being able to see an early screening of “Star Trek Into Darkness,” the latest “Star Trek” reboot from J.J. Abrams. You. Guys. It was so so so soooooo goooooooood. I am dying to talk to someone about it, but no one else I know has seen it yet and I refuse to be that asshole who ruins the movie — especially by revealing who the villain is — for my fellow Trekkies. That violates the Prime Directive of, like, fandom. Anyway, I need to purge my emotions about the film though, so I put together this utterly spoiler-free (I swear!) review of the movie presented in GIFs from “Star Trek: The Original Series.” Keep reading »
Okay, so, College Humor might be a year too late on the Manic Pixie Dream Girl hate, but this clip from Vag Magazine writer Leila Cohen-Miccio is still hella funny: dude hires a prostitute just to play the ukelele, find whimsy in a hotel bathroom and live in the moment. It’s really kind of demented and brilliant. [College Humor]
It’s going to be a good summer: “Girl Most Likely,” starring Kristen Wiig, is coming out July 19! Kristen stars as Imogene (which was the original title of the film), a flailing playwright who has a breakdown and has to be taken care of by her loopy mother (Annette Bening), herself living with a sketchy new boyfriend named “George Bousche” (Matt Dillon) and a much-younger boy renting out her childhood bedroom (Darren Criss). Annnnd there’s a spanking joke. What’s not to love? July 19 can’t come soon enough. [IMDB]
Judy Blume’s “Tiger Eyes” is one of those young adult novels I read multiple times as a teen, so I was beyond excited when I found out they were making it into a movie. And now there’s a trailer! Willa Holland stars as Davey, a 15-year-old girl who relocates with her family to New Mexico from New Jersey after her father is killed. Hiking in a canyon, she meets a mysterious young man named Wolf — played by Tatanka Means — and the two become fast friends (there are romantic sparks too). The story follows Davey as she struggles to come to terms with her father’s death while also progressing into womanhood. From the looks of the trailer, the movie looks so much like I imagined it would, probably because Blume and her son were closely involved in making the film. The movie opens June 7 — cannot wait.
Ever since the “Fifty Shades of Grey” fan trailer frenzy first broke out, the actress formerly and best known as Rory Gilmore, Alexis Bledel, has been “cast” as Anastasia Steele. Again and again, she’s showed up on YouTube “opposite” the likes of Matt Bomerand Henry Cavill as Christian Grey! it’s clear she’s quickly become a fan favorite for the role, but she herself has kept mum on the subject of going up for the super-steamy, extremely coveted part. Until now, that is!
At the premiere of her new Hallmark Hall of Fame movie, “Remember Sunday,” Alexis actually addressed the potential for her involvement in the flick. Read more on The Stir…
Time for your Adderall, everyone! The full theatrical trailer for Sofia Coppola’s “The Bling Ring,” starring Emma Watson, has arrived! This. Looks. Stupid. Goooooood.
Are you guys tired of me writing about “Star Trek Into Darkness” yet? I sure hope not, because I haven’t even officially begun The Frisky’s countdown till the movie lands in theaters May 18. Oh, the excitement I have planned… Until then, here is a just released clip from the movie. I get some “Wrath of Khan” vibes from the scene — “The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few … or the one” being Spock’s next to last words in the film — but obviously J.J. Abrams and company have been teasing the Khan connection for awhile (likely a red herring). Mostly I am intrigued by that big fish. WTF?
In case you hadn’t noticed, it’s spring. And there’s no time better to load up the car with beef jerky and Red Bull, and take on the American highway system with your best friend. That’s right. It’s ROAD TRIP TIME! But we here at The Frisky didn’t want you to take any old road trip. So we’re sending you to the destinations embedded in your memory since your first slumber party: this will be the official Chick Flick Road Trip. Ten movies, fifteen states, and approximately 4,193 miles of iconic scenery that will make you proud to own a vagina. And not just because you can get out of speeding tickets. Keep reading »
I don’t usually get it up for superhero movies. I mean, I loved “The Dark Knight
Rises,” mostly because of Heath Ledger’s performance as The Joker. I will always have a special place in my heart for 1984′s “Supergirl” — Faye Dunaway as Selena was so glam. But otherwise? Meh. That is, until I saw the latest trailer for “Man of Steel,” the latest Superman reboot. First of all, Henry Cavill, hello. How are you? You are pretty. I am soooo digging Cavill’s wooly and woodsy version of Clark Kent. But seriously, this latest trailer makes the film look epic. Maybe it’s the PMS talking, but I got emotional. Count me in!
Oh my god, these “Star Trek Into Darkness” trailers just keep getting better and better. Official trailer #3 just hit the internet and, DAMMIT, JIM, I can’t take the suspense any longer. Bones is concerned! Spock and Uhura are kissing! Kirk is majorly emo! Shit be exploding! Ack, so so so much running! What the hell is that big dark ship thingy?! Scotty is heartbroken! Benedict Cumberbatch being deliciously evil! And darkness. SO MUCH DARKNESS. Ugh, biggest nerd boner ever. MAY 17th get here nowwwww. [The Mary Sue]
