HBO has released a poster for the upcoming season of polygamy drama “Big Love.” The image is not very revealing, but the line “hold tight” is surely a reference to what was happening last season.
When we last saw the Henrickson family, it was coming apart at the scenes. Nicki (Chloe Sevigny) had just been found out as a huge liar and near-cheat. I’m sure much of the next season will focus on the family working out their issues with her. But Entertainment Weekly has a bit of a sneak peek that has nothing to do with that.
When we rejoin the family, man of the house(s) Bill (Bill Paxton) will be running for state senator. But the issue won’t be whether he wins but what he stands to lose along the way. “His goal, if he’s elected, is to put himself and his family out there as public polygamists,” says executive producer Marc V. Olsen, adding, “He can’t be impeached for that. Polygamy is technically a misdemeanor in Utah, [and a misdemeanor is not] an impeachable offense. Nonetheless, the Henrickson wives’ vote is split in a way that threatens to splinter the entire clan. “Bill’s decision renders major friction within the family,” Olsen teases. “What wives will or will not do to promote that agenda or stop that agenda dead in its tracks [is] a big piece of the season.”
“Big Love” Season 4 premiers Sunday Jan. 10.
Wow, this is really the new poster for “The Lovely Bones“? It’s about as cool as an episode of “To Catch a Predator.” I wonder if the girl made a pitcher of iced tea and is about to inquire if the predator brought the McDonald’s food and condoms?
Seriously, what a terribly uncomfortable poster. Even if you didn’t know the story, you’d know that guy is a creep just from his Mark David Chapman glasses.
Apparently Ryan Reynolds shirtless wasn’t enough (really? that wasn’t enough?) for a successful 2005 remake of horror classic “The Amityville Horror.” Bloodydisgusting.com is reporting that Dimenstion and the Weinsteins are planning to bring the movie back to the big screen.
But it’s only been four years. I’ve made my thoughts on remakes public here before, but this is just ridiculous. Are there really no original ideas any more? This is getting quite pathetic. Maybe they’ll put a new spin on it. There’s no word on what the plans are. But it’s just too much too soon.
An international poster for “The Wolfman” has surfaced and I’m impressed. It’s right to the point, as all posters should be. I hate the ones that make you think. Good work, someone.
There are a lot of movies, both out now and coming up, that I will be seeing, but there’s something (or someone) about each of them that I’ve secretly been thinking makes them less legitimate.
For example, Fergie in “Nine.” I know she has like one song and is in like one scene or something. But there’s just something about her being in this potentially awesome movie that bugs me. And now she’s prominently placed on the poster above. I’m scared. I’m sure it’ll be fine. But in this tiny spot in my brain, there’s something whispering “a movie with Fergie as a star will never win an Oscar.”
Then there’s Mariah Carey in “Precious.” I hear she’s actually good in it. And the whole uni-brow thing helps legitimize her. But all I can think of is “Glitter.” And that makes me very scared. Again I hear, “a movie with Mariah as a star will never win an Oscar.”
I was this close to being worried about Mark Wahlberg in “The Lovely Bones,” but I got too distracted by Tom Ford directing “A Single Man.” The movie looks brilliant. And it does happen to star Goddess Julianne Moore. But since when does Ford make movies? Gucci and movies are hardly similar. Just because you make one, doesn’t mean you can make the other. But I hear he did a good job with the movie. So that’s fine. The voice this time is saying, “and the Oscar goes to Julianne Moore.”
This new character poster for Rob Marshall’s upcoming move musical “Nine” doesn’t really feature the wrong stars, but upon a close look, most of the actors look like other actors.
Kate Hudson looks like Shakira. Marion Cottilard looks like Selma Blair. Fergie looks like Michelle Pfeiffer as Catwoman. Sophia Loren looks like Susan Sarandon. Daniel Day-Lewis kind of looks like Jack Nicholson. Nicole Kidman, Penelope Cruz and Judi Dench don’t look like anyone else, though. Or do they?
Mile Cyrus gets the chance to showcase her “real” acting chops in the upcoming movie “Last Song,” based on the novel by Nicolas Sparks (“The Notebook,” “A Walk to Remember”).
Looks like the usual story. Girl spends the summer with her dad (Greg Kinnear, who else would it be?). She falls for a guy. Guy kisses her and outlines her body in seashells. Yada. Oh and there’s plenty of Miley “duckface” (like in the photo above).
I wonder who dies though. Doesn’t someone always die from cancer or something in Sparks’ books/movies? I won’t say who I hope it is. But I bet you can guess.
And thank God, it includes new music by Miley. I’ve been waiting. My “Party in the USA” MP3 is worn out.
Forbes has compiled a list of the 10 Most Overpaid Stars and Will Ferrell comes in at No. 1. Ewan McGregor is a close No. 2.
The magazine says to create the list, “we looked at the 100 biggest stars in Hollywood. To qualify, each actor had to have starred over the last five years in at least three movies that opened in more than 500 theaters. We then calculated a return-on-investment number for each star by dividing total operating income on the three films by the star’s total compensation, including up-front salaries and earnings from DVD and TV sales.”
1. Will Ferrell
2. Ewan McGregor
3. Billy Bob Thornton
4. Eddie Murphy
5. Ice Cube
6. Tom Cruise
7. Drew Barrymore
8. Leonardo DiCaprio
9. Samuel L. Jackson
10. Jim Carrey
Very interesting. Most of the people on the list are actors I could care less about. So it all makes sense to me.
The crazies over at Shiantology posted this vintage beauty pageant image because one of the contestant bears a striking resemblance to their main squeeze Shia LaBeouf. And I agree. The photo cracks me up. I took it upon myself to add a comparison photo and arrow. I actually think the young lady looks more like Shia during his “Even Stevens” days, but it’s still hilarious. Oh, and am I the only one who thinks the woman on the left kind of looks like Charlize Theron? Now this is getting creepy.
Update: As reader “Goose” pointed out, the lady (I think it’s a lady) on the right looks a lot like Alex Winter from “Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure.” It’s a star-studded beauty pageant. I think Charlize has it in the bag…
You remember the infamous dance Buffalo Bill does in “Silence of the Lambs“? You know, it’s to the song “Goodbye Horses” and there’s that extra-special junk tuck he does? OK, now that we’re on the same page, let me share with you how many recreations there are of that dance on YouTube.
Some guys go all out. They don’t miss a beat. Others realize how embarrassing their tribute could be and decide to edit themselves. I really wanted to post my favorite one here, but decided it’s still too naughty for our nice little blog. Do a YouTube search or check them out here. In the meantime, enjoy “Family Guy‘s” Chris Griffin’s own interpretation below.
