Trailer Park: “Paranormal Activity 2,” “Hereafter,” “The Company Men,” “Inhale,” “Kalamity”

We’re just about a week away from Halloween and the creepy movies are back in spades. I guess that watching “Paranormal Activity 2″ would be cheaper than most haunted houses. And you don’t have to get any hay on your butt, if you don’t want to. Most of the other movies are about varying degrees of desperation. I guess this time of year lends itself to that kind of thing—wallowing in the dying bits before everything’s iced over and reborn. Or maybe I’m just projecting? Keep reading »

Mel Gibson Versus Zach Galifianakis: Looks Like Zach Won

Earlier this week, we told you that Mel Gibson‘s camp had come up with a kind of brilliant plan to get the despicable actor back into the public’s good graces: a cameo in “The Hangover 2.” Mel was set to play a tattoo artist in the flick, but the appearance has now been nixed. The movie’s director, Todd Phillips, explains, “I thought Mel would have been great in the movie… But I realize filmmaking is a collaborative effort, and this decision ultimately did not have the full support of my entire cast and crew.”

So who in the cast objected? Keep reading »

What’s Up With CGI-Enhanced Nudity?

The perverts of America are freaking out because Jessica Alba‘s recent nude scene in “Machete” was apparently CGI-created. Instead of getting naked for the role, which Alba has steadfastly resolved to avoid at all costs, she wore white underwear which were then digitally removed in post-production. Judging from the before and after pictures, they took a couple pounds of flesh off as well. But people aren’t freaking out because of the chop-shop job on her tummy; it seems that people feel duped for believing they had actually seen Alba naked. Personally, I don’t understand why they care so much since so much of what we see in movies are body doubles anyway. And as Entertainment Weekly pointed out, there are only four options if an actress doesn’t want to be nude—cut the scene, wear a bra all the time like Carrie Bradshaw, use CGI, get a body double to fake it, or hire a new actress. And of the options, I think I might be on Team CGI, especially if the nudity is actually necessary for the role, which it totally wasn’t for “Machete.” If you’re looking for gratuitous nudity, why not go faux?

We’ve scrounged up some other CGI nude moments in movie history to continue the debate. Keep reading »

Harry Potter Cross-Dresses


Since I am one of the 10 people on planet Earth who has never read the Harry Potter series, I was curious as to what was happening in this newly released clip from “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” shown during the Spike Scream Awards. In it, Daniel Radcliffe rocks a white lace bra and says in a girl’s voice, “Look away, I’m hideous.” So here is the lowdown. Keep reading »

Fake “Scream 4″ Poster Says There’s Only Room For 5 Pop Divas

At first glance you might think Beyoncé is in “Scream 4” with … Lady Gaga? And Rihanna? And then, whoa, what? Christina Aguilera‘s in “Scream 4,” too, and she’s going to die?!?! Then you realize someone is just very good at Photoshop. And there’s only room for five pop divas in 2011, apparently. Watch your back, Xtina! [Guanabee] Keep reading »

Behold, The “Scream 4″ Trailer


At last night’s Spike Scream Awards, fans voted “Green Lantern” as the most anticipated film of next year. Yeah, we wanna see Ryan Reynolds in tights, but we’re still more excited for “Scream 4.” And yesterday, during the show, we got a first look at the trailer. It features many familiar faces—Neve Campbell, Emma Roberts, Anna Paquin, Kristen Bell, Shenae Grimes, and Hayden Panettiere. Will you be buying midnight opening night tickets?

Kristen Stewart Got A Job Offer … From A Strip Club

“Doing this movie … one shocking thing was to find how easy it is [to flaunt your sexuality]. Like, I went to a strip club with the director and the costume designer and it being an odd grouping of people going into a strip club in the middle of the afternoon, I was, like, straight-up offered a job. And then walking around New Orleans wearing the kind of stuff I was wearing literally could be like boom, boom, boom, done. But I would never do that.”

Kristen Stewart talks about playing runaway teen stripper Mallory in the new flick “Welcome to the Rileys,” opposite James Gandolfini. Well, at least Kristen knows she’s got a few job options if the whole acting thing doesn’t work out? [MTV] Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “Red,” “Hereafter,” “Conviction,” “Jackass 3D,” “Marwencol,” “Carlos”

Every day closer to Halloween is another day that I avoid the candy aisles at the drug store so that I don’t end up passed out in a bed of 600 tiny wrappers, drooling chocolate. If you’re suffering from a similar pattern, there’s nowhere better to hide than a movie theater. But they’ve got candy there, you say? Well, hopefully that 400 percent mark-up is enough to deter you. With the exception of “Jackass 3D,” this week brought some pretty heady films to the table and, for the first time in weeks, no horror movies! So go forth and watch. Keep reading »

Heather Matarazzo, Nikki Blonsky To Star In “Manson Girls” About Charles Manson’s Ladies

Promising to be just as violent as any Bruce Willis flick, yet 1,000 times more creepy, Hollywood indie actresses are signing up for “Manson Girls,” a flick about Charles Manson and the young women in his life. Heather Matarazzo (“Welcome To The Dollhouse”), Thora Birch (“American Beauty”), and Nikki Blonsky (“Hairspray”) have all signed on to play impressionable — some would say stupid — girls drawn in by the charismatic cult leader and his group, The Family. Members of the Manson Family were known for committing crimes, most notably the gruesome murder of pregnant actress Sharon Tate, who was then married to filmmaker Roman Polanski. According to the synopsis, “Manson Girls follows a young girl from a wealthy Malibu family who fell under Manson’s spell.” No word yet on who will play Charles Manson, but I can think of half a dozen dudes with the scary facial hair and crazy eyes to pull it off.

The Real Woman Behind The Story Of “Conviction”

You know how when we were kids we thought our moms could do anything? Well, Betty Anne Waters (far left) is a mom who just about did. After her brother, Kenny, was wrongfully convicted of a crime that landed him in prison for life without parole, Waters became determined to become his lawyer and prove his innocence. Betty stayed relentlessness, earning her G.E.D, her bachelor’s degree, and the right to practice law, all while working a full-time job and raising her children. Her story has now been adapted into the movie “Conviction,” which opens this weekend. In the movie, Betty is played by Hilary Swank. Read on to see what this new Erin Brockovich had to say to WomenAndHollywood.com about fighting through life and getting her story made into a film. Keep reading »
