Behold, a creepy yet awesome promotion for “Contagion,” which opened this weekend. Warner Brothers hired an ad agency to create billboards for the flick … grown from bacteria and fungi. This project began in a petri dish on August 28th and, in this video, you can see the fully bloomed result.
Now, “Contagion” has a lot going for it. In addition to this super creative advertising scheme that is now going viral (pun intended), the flick stars Matt Damon, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jude Law, and Kate Winslet and was directed by legendary Steven Soderbergh. But there’s still no way you could pay me to see it. Keep reading »

What could this latest Palin tell us about the ex-Alaskan governor that we don’t already know from several years on non-stop media coverage, as well as her conservative-slanted bio-pic “The Undefeated“? That is something we’ll have to wait and see. Come on, people. I love documentaries more than the average person, but this insanity has got to stop. [The Hollywood Reporter] Keep reading »
Every now and then, the brief synopsis of a movie completely captures my attention. That’s exactly what’s happened with “Butter,” a Weinstein Company flick that is screening at the Toronto Film Festival and getting a touch of Oscar buzz. The concept? Jennifer Garner is a butter sculptor. More specifically, she is the wife of a legendary butter carver of the Iowa State Fair who decides to pick up a knife and sculpt on when he retires. Need more of a sell? The flick also stars Olivia Wilde as a stripper who Jennifer’s husband may have an affair with, Alicia Silverstone as the adopted mother of a 10-year-old butter carving genius who challenges Jennifer, and Hugh Jackman as Jennifer’s ex-boyfriend. In fact, Hugh says the movie is satire on par with “To Die For.” Keep reading »
