Anne Hathaway As Catwoman? 8 Things You Didn’t Know About The Iconic Villainess

Yesterday, we told you that Anne Hathaway will be trading in her beige sequins for black latex, playing Catwoman in “The Dark Knight Rises.” Anne seems like good fit to play Catwoman, whose unmasked name is (usually) Selina Kitt Kyle. Since Anne will soon be the sixth actress to portray the iconic role, here’s a look back at the history of Catwoman, both on the page and the screen. Keep reading »

Willow Smith To Star In An “Annie” Remake?

If you pick up a photo of me as a kid, there is an 85 percent chance that I will be wearing a red curly wig in it. And if you watch any home videos, I will no doubt be singing either “The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow” or “It’s A Hard Knock Life.” That’s because I was beyond obsessed with the 1982 movie, “Annie,” in which a precocious orphan is adopted by the mega-rich Daddy Warbucks. (Side note: I recently read that Aileen Quinn, who played Annie, is now a theater professor. You go, girl. No word on whether Sandy the dog is still barking.)

So, I’m a tad bit concerned that Will Smith is looking to remake the classic movie. Keep reading »

What “Blue Valentine” Took From “The Notebook”


Props to New York‘s Vulture blog for pointing out that two distinctly different Ryan Gosling films, “The Notebook” and “Blue Valentine,” have one distinct similarity — they each feature a scene in which Gosling’s character kinda, sorta threatens to kill himself if the object of his affection doesn’t give him what he wants. In “The Notebook,” “Noah” teases that he’ll throw himself off a Ferris Wheel if Rachel McAdams’ character “Allie” doesn’t agree to go on a date with him (above). In “Blue Valentine,” “Dean” scales a fence on the Manhattan Bridge and threatens to go even further if Michelle Williams’ character “Cindy” doesn’t confess a secret she’s been hiding (watch that clip after the jump).

Robert Pattinson Says Filming Sex Scene With Kristen Stewart Was Like Playing Twister

“It’s always awkward in a way if you’re doing it with anybody. It really depends on how it’s staged and stuff. It’s like doing Twister.”

Robert Pattinson is not the biggest fan of filming sex scenes. Here’s what he had to say about his big one with Kristen Stewart in “Breaking Dawn.” A 12 hour game of Twister does sound awkward. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Christian Bale Really Wanted To Do His Own Stunts In “The Fighter”

“I just got up there and I went, ‘I’m jumping’ … I’ve jumped from three-story buildings in my own life after bad parties and stuff. The insurance came around … and they were just begging me not to.”

Christian Bale says he was annoyed that he wasn’t allowed to do his own stunts in “The Fighter” because of insurance concerns. He does have a point. I mean, he did lose an insane amount of weight to play aging boxer/crackhead Dicky Eklund, which isn’t the healthiest thing ever. On the other hand, uh, when did he jump out of a third floor window?

Anne Hathaway And Kanye West Both Set To Play Gay

What do Kanye West and Anne Hathaway have in common, other than being A)) human and B) famous? Well, they’re both getting ready to play gay characters. According to Ryan Murphy, Anne has just signed on to appear on “Glee,” playing Kurt’s lesbian aunt. Apparently, she dreamed up the part herself. “She’s already created [her role],” said Murphy. “She wants to play the lesbian aunt of Chris Colfer. Because everyone needs a lesbian aunt.” Here’s hoping she gets together with Sue Sylvester. [MTV]

Meanwhile, Kanye West is rumored to be taking on his first major acting role, in a movie about a gay jazz band in 1939. Keep reading »

Rooney Mara Channels Lisbeth Salander On The Cover Of W Magazine

Ever since it was announced that Rooney Mara would be playing Lisbeth Salander in David Fincher’s big screen version of “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo,” people have been speculating about whether sweet Rooney can go hard. I think this W magazine cover of her in character proves that yes, she can at least look the part. Guess we’ll have to wait for the movie to see if she fully embodies it. See one more image after the jump. [W Magazine] Keep reading »

Surprise! James Franco Is Squeamish

“I admit that I get a little queasy, especially when it comes to blood around my arms. When I go to the doctor for a checkup and they draw blood, I admit, I’m not good at that at all. … [But] when I watched that scene, I was fine.”

James Franco explains that even though he feels faint at the sight of blood, he didn’t have trouble filming or watching the infamous scene in “127 Hours” where he amputates his own arm. Others haven’t handled the scene so well. There have been many reports of people fainting, vomiting, and having panic attacks during screenings. Fun? [People] Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “Season Of The Witch,” “The Absent,” “Phil Ochs: There But Of Fortune”

It’s a whole new year in the movie theater and I wish I could say that we’re starting it off with a bang, but unfortunately the biggest movie hitting the screens this week is “Season of the Witch.” Fortunately for you, there are some great looking indie flicks and a bunch of super awesome movies from the holiday season that are still out! Whatever, it’s not like you need an excuse for sitting on your butt and eating popcorn. Keep reading »

The People’s Choice Awards: The Winners We Just Can’t Agree With

I’m not exactly sure who The People are who end up casting votes for The People’s Choice Awards. Maybe they’re related to The Man? Based on last night’s award’s show, I’m guessing that most of them are—OH MY GAWD—obviously under the age of 14. A select few of the award winners seemed totally deserving. Like Neil Patrick Harris (who caused quite a kerfuffle when he told host Queen Latifah that she was giving a B+ performance), who we’ll co-sign on for Favorite TV Comedy Actor since, even after years on the air, he is still amazing as straight sleezeball Barney Stinson on “How I Met Your Mother.” I can also get down with Gregory House/Hugh Laurie for Favorite TV Doctor because, well, I can’t think of another TV doc at the moment. But most of last night’s winners made me think, “WTF?” After the jump, the winners that left me scratching my head in confusion the hardest.
