BEVERLY HILLS, Calif.—Poking a finger in Hollywood’s eye as well as getting a jump on any potential porn parody contenders, Hustler Video has already announced plans to produce a porn parody of Sony’s beleaguered comedy,The Interview, starring Seth Rogen and James Franco.
Titled This Ain’t The Interview XXX, Hustler’s spoof will also center on two civilians enlisted by the CIA to assassinate the leader of North Korea. It was inevitable.
“If Kim Jong-un and his henchmen were upset before, wait till they see the movie we’re going to make,”
Sony Pictures has made official what has been painfully obvious to everybody since yesterday morning, when hackers threatened to blow up movie theaters if The Interview was released next week. The studio has officially scrapped its release plans. Sony had little choice here, after the major theater chains announced earlier today they would not display the film given the threatening circumstances.
Seriously, Kim Jong Un has to be the weakest, thin-skinned psycho-bitch dictator ever. What a pussy.
I checked this out over the weekend and was blown away. Awesome movie all the way to the end.
Probably the best time travel-to-stop-crime film I have ever seen. And thats a big call, because I have also seen Van Damme’s Time Cop.
Seriously though, this a great flick.
British actor John Boyega, who plays a stormtrooper in the trailer for the latest Star Wars film has one simple message for the haters who questioned his role in the film: “Get used to it.”
Boyega, 22, took to Instagram with his classy response after some corners of the internet argued that a black stormtrooper was an anomaly, while others were blatantly racist.
I must admit the appearance of Mr Boyega threw me too. I was expecting a Kiwi.
An HBO documentary that digs deep into Scientology is in the works. It promises to look inside the controversial religion, its deep-rooted Hollywood connections and celebrity followers like Tom Cruise and John Travolta.
And the network will be prepared for the litigious onslaught they’ll most likely face from the Church of Scientology. HBO Documentary Films president Sheila Nevins told The Hollywood Reporter, “We have probably 160 lawyers [looking at the film].”
Should have hired 666 shiny suited lawyers.
JJ Abrams has allegedly posted this pic letting us know a trailer for the new Star Wars film will be out this Friday (Saturday for Australia). Sorry for my lie about the preview, but I suppose you could call the image above a preview. I personally don’t get these previews for trailers. I call shenanigans on them.
The fifth instalment of the Pirates of the Caribbean movie franchise will be filmed in Queensland, although the presence of A-list actor Johnny Depp is yet to be confirmed.
The Federal Government spent $21.6 million to secure the Walt Disney Studios production, with the contract having been signed yesterday.
The Queensland Government also offered an incentive package that included payroll tax concessions, although it would not reveal the total cost.
Queensland beat out several other Australian states and Mexico to host the film.
Because Australia is poor and we all need to do some heavy lifting.
Stormtroopers have been Daft Punk’d.
Much like our local police, Stormtroopers must keep up with the most modern of military equipment–to protect themselves from, say, dark, unarmed figures they think look threatening in a hood. So, for Star Wars: Episode VII, director J.J. Abrams has given the Empire soldiers some updated helmets with a very modern, streamlined makeover. Or at least that’s what it seems from these leaked images over at Indie Revolver, where they claim that this is the new look for the iconic, bumbling villains.
Among the blockbuster onslaught that will mark summer 2015 — which includes “Avengers: Age Of Ultron,” “Mad Max: Fury Road,” “Tomorrowland,” “The Fantastic Four,” “Jurassic World” and “Ant-Man” — is a new “Terminator” movie, and it now has an official title. And you may want to get ready to LOL.
Arnold Schwarzenegger himself posted an Instagram pic announcing the wrap of production, and revealing the movie to be called “Terminator: Genisys.” Okay then, so what’s with the spelling? We’re not sure, but perhaps there is a tie to the equally, weirdly spelled Cyberdyne from the previous movies? We’ll leave the speculation to you.
The Motion Picture Ass. of America has shot itself in the foot by issuing a copyright takedown notice against a corner of Reddit – and promptly turned a virtually unused subredit into a popular forum.
The discussion board, /r/FullLengthFilms, is a place for Redditors to post links to films available for streaming or download, and typically scores about 2,500 unique visitors a day. While some of the linked films could be legally downloaded, there’s also a contingent of movies that can be streamed or downloaded illegally.
Some bright spark at the MPAA got wind of this and issued a takedown notice – obtained by Torrentfreak – against the subreddit after a link appeared to a copy of the 2010 film Edge of Darkness, which was adapted from the British TV series of the same name.
Reddit is one of the planet’s largest and more vigorous online communities and when news of the takedown broke, users went a little nuts – as did the traffic to /r/FullLengthFilms. Its moderator reports that site traffic nearly quadrupled in a day and the number of people subscribing to the site skyrocketed.
In case you missed it last week, Toby Froud, the baby in the striped PJs from the movie Labyrinth, grew up, moved to Portland for a job at LAIKA, and premiered his own fantasy puppet film on Saturday in collaboration with Jim Henson’s daughter, Heather. He might not have been raised by Goblin King Jareth (a.k.a. David Bowie in an explosion of lace and locks) and his goblin hordes in real life, but he came as close to it as possible, growing up the son of Brian and Wendy Froud, the reigning artistic royalty behind The Dark Crystal, Labyrinth, and an entire illustrated world of faeries and goblins with an international following.
North Korea has promised “merciless” retaliation if a forthcoming Hollywood movie about killing Kim Jong-un is released, say agencies.
A North Korean foreign ministry spokesman said in state media that the movie’s release would be an “act of war”.
