Rooney Mara Wins Coveted Role Of Lisbeth Salander In “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo”

The search for Lisbeth Salander is over. Actress Rooney Mara has allegedly been cast as the heavily pierced and tattooed protagonist in David Fincher’s film adaptation of Stieg Larsson’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. She will no doubt go on to play the role in two additional films based on the latter two books in the trilogy, The Girl Who Played With Fire and The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest. She joins a cast which already included Daniel Craig, Stellan Skarsgard, and Robin Wright, having beat out actresses like Natalie Portman, Carey Mulligan, and Ellen Page. Keep reading »

Who Will Make The First 3-D Porn?

We all knew it was coming. The moment we saw the fusing of the blue tentacles in “Avatar,” it seemed pretty obvious that, someday, someone was going to make a 3-D porno. But evidently, three such films are in the works and are racing to be the first to make it to the big screen. First, there’s a director in Hong Kong filming a skin flick called “3-D Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy,” a $3.2 million project due to be out next May. And then there’s Italian director Tinto Brass, who wants to remake the 1979 orgy “Caligula” using new 3-D technology. And then there’s Hustler, which has evidently been inspired by “Avatar,” too. The porn magazine is making a spoof of the movie, only with lots of boning. What do we think—cool or scary? Keep reading »

Jake Gyllenhaal And Anne Hathaway Reunite In “Love And Other Drugs”


Let’s talk about how excited I am to see “Love and Other Drugs” starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway. The two, of course, played a married couple in “Brokeback Mountain,” but this is decidedly lighter, funnier fare, with Gyllenhaal playing a charming ladies’ man and Hathaway portraying a free-spirited type. I’m especially interested to see how Jake does as a somewhat cocky Alpha male, being that he usually plays emo. The film comes out November 24. [via Just Jared] Keep reading »

Brigitte Bardot Pissed That A Biopic Of Her Life Is In The Works

Director Kyle Newman is working on a biopic of French sex symbol Brigitte Bardot, and has tapped his wifey, Jaime King, to play the title role. Only there is one person who is so not happy about the flick—Brigitte herself. “A film about my life? But I’m not dead!” she said on a radio show this week. “They wouldn’t dare do it without talking to me. If they do, sparks will fly.” Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “Eat Pray Love,” “Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World,” “The Expendables,” “Animal Kingdom”

I know it’s gotten really hard to get to the movie theater, because there’s pay-per-view, DVDs and the amazingness of Netflix, which make it possible to watch dozens of movies for the price of one in the theater. So, I won’t blame you if you don’t go. But you should probably know that every time you buy a bootleg DVD instead of going to a movie theater, they shoot a production assistant. I’ve seen it happen. It’s brutal. So, if you want to save a PA this week, you can go see “Eat Pray Love,” “Scott Pilgrim vs. The World,” “The Expendables,” “Animal Kingdom,” or “Tales From Earthsea.” Be nice. Save a PA.

“Eat Pray Love” opens tonight and chances are there’s a lady in your life who wants to see it. But is it really worth $10 and painful subzero-air conditioning? A lot of people hated the book.

First Look: “The Romantics,” Starring Katie Holmes, Anna Paquin & Josh Duhamel


A few years ago, Katie Holmes was showing such acting promise — critics loved her in “Pieces of April,” though her wooden showing in “Batman Begins” didn’t win her any new fans. Still, before marrying Tom Cruise and having baby Suri, Holmes was transitioning her success on the small screen (on “Dawson’s Creek”) into major roles on the big screen. Then she dropped out of the next “Batman” — at Cruise’s behest — starred alongside Queen Latifah and Diane Keaton in the stinker “Mad Money,” and tried her hand at Broadway to mixed reviews. So when I heard she would be starring in the movie adaptation of the book The Romantics alongside Anna Paquin, Josh Duhamel, Elijah Wood, Malin Ackerman, and Candace Bergen, well, I got kinda psyched that Holmes might getting back on the right track. By the looks of the preview, I might be right — it looks fantastic. Gawker suggests this could be Holmes’ “Rachel Getting Married,” though they doubt it will make critics and audiences take her seriously as an actress, like the latter did for Anne Hathaway. What do you think — will you be seeing “The Romantics”? [Gawker] Keep reading »

Quotable: Jennifer Aniston On Single Ladies Having Babies

“Women are realizing more and more that you don’t have to settle, they don’t have to fiddle with a man to have that child. They are realizing if it’s that time in their life and they want this part, they can do it with or without that. It’s happening more and more … The point of the movie is—what defines family? It isn’t necessarily the traditional mother, father, two children and a dog named Spot.”

Jennifer Aniston is feeling her character in “The Switch” and gives props to women who decide to have children solo. But would she ever practice what she preaches? Hey, it’s what we’re all wondering. [PopEater] Keep reading »
