Trailer for Bandslam, a coming-of-age musical-rom-com from the guy who did the sleeper hit Camp, was leaked a few days ago online. Basically it’s Camp but instead of aspiring actors and actresses, it’s aspiring singer-songwriters and musicians. This has potential of not only being an entertaining end of the summer comedy but it can also help Vanessa Hudgens extend beyond the High School Musical franchise. That being said, there is also a huge chance that this can suck pretty bad. Walden Media (known most famously for producing The Chronicles of Narnia series) is known to be a serious hit/miss production company. Only time will tell but until then… here’s the trailer:
Kirsten Dunst is on Board for Spidey 4. June 6, 2009
Dunst is set to play Mary Jane for the upcoming fourth installment of the Spiderman series. Additionally, producer Todd Black had this to say about who the villain might be:
We’re just coming up with who the villain’s going to be now. We’ll be shooting in New York again. Trust me, people will appreciate who we pick, because it’ll be a big part of New York.
While this news all sounds swell, I think I speak for all Marvel fans when I say: Please. Please. Pretty please. Don’t make this suck like the last one. No Saturday Night Fever strut. No musical numbers. No horrible portrayal of a villain. No cheesy narration in the beginning. And Avi Arad, if Sam Raimi doesn’t want to do a certain villain, don’t make him. Let’s try to redeem the bad taste of number three guys.

Next year, us Americans will face yet another possibly mediocre Shrek sequel, Shrek Forever After. But just before we even beg for Dreamworks to stop sucking the blood out of a once beloved franchise, Coming Soon reports that this Puss In Boots spin-off is actually happening… They’ve had the opportunity to talk with Antonio Banderas who confirmed that it would be an “origin story” and stated this:
“I’m very happy with what I’m doing. In a way, it’s easy work because I know the parameters of the character. I know how to move him around. At the same time, a couple days ago, I went to DreamWorks and they pitched me what is going to be Puss in Boots’ own movie, and it looks unbelievable. It looks really, really cool. They’ve been working very, very heavy on the script for almost three years, and they didn’t just want to give me any kind of thing until the other day when Jeffrey finally called me and he said it was done. I went there and I was very surprised how the movie is going to take off. I love it.”
To be honest, I really don’t care how stoked Banderas is about the project. To me, it just seems like a way for Dreamworks to make more money off of the green ogre and co. And it’s an “origin story”. So picture the suckage of Wolverine, except now it’s about a character you don’t care about.
After kicking some serious butt in the surprisingly good Terminator Salvation, Sam Worthington’s BA radar just went from awesome to awesomer. Worthington is apparently starring in the remaking of the cult classic Clash of the Titans and here is the first offical pic courtesy of Slashfilm:
While I’m a huge fan of the original, it would be nice to see this little Ancient Greek tale with special effects that were actually good… and if by some reason the pic above didn’t persuade you enough that this film has potential of rocking… Liam Neeson is playing Zeus. Hell to the yes.
And it’s being done by Legendary Pictures who have proved time and time again they excel at making genre films. This has a chance to be a fantastic pre-summer blockbuster.
I don’t mean to sound gross or anything but there’s only one thing I can think of that could make a full-length Stretch Armstrong movie… and it wouldn’t be appropriate for theaters.
…Oh come on you were thinking it too.
Apparently Steve Oedekerk, the genius who brought us the Thumb parodies and Kung Pow is writing it… super.
Once upon a time, a little awards show on a television channel that used to play music was a racy, hilarious and youthful alternative to the Oscars. Such alumni winners were Menace II Society, Pulp Fiction and Se7en. Then, as the channel grew more mainstream, the voters of the awards show began to favor blockbusters and atypical popcorn films. A bit of a decline but understandable. I mean let’s face it most of the MTV audience during the TRL era wouldn’t be the type to like artsy/independent films. They like the summer entertainment. All was going well until last Sunday when something unnatural happened.
This won everything… it won Best Movie, it won Best Breakthrough Male, it Won Best Actress despite Kristen Stewart’s lack of knowing how to act, it Won Best Fight beating out movies that actually had fight scenes. Now my personal bias against the Twilight “saga” aside. Sunday night proved that our generation, the youngest breed of independent American women age 13-25 only care about two things when it comes to an art form:
1. Hot guys
2. Insanely outlandish theatrical romance that they’ll never possibly attain in the real world.
Okay, so I’m overreacting but the MTV Movie Awards are now on the same level as the Teen Choice Awards and has no validity when it comes to expressing the true value of any art form. Congratulations MTV, you’re fanbase is now nothing more than hyper, incompetent and borderline psychotic teenage girls. Enjoy.

Obviously I’m not taking news for The Twilight Saga: New Moon seriously… So I’m just going to comment on the new New Moon pics like an average Twilight fan would.

The Twilight Saga: New Moon will be released I don’t know, nor do I care.
