It’s the year 2028. Joel Kinnaman (soooo cute on The Killing) (SEASON ONE ONLY!) is Alex Murphy, a loving father, hunky husband, and a good cop. After being critically injured in the line of duty, he is transformed by the multinational conglomerate OmniCorp into a unstoppable super-cyborg. Co-starring Gary Oldman, Samual L Jackson, MY BELOVED JAY BARUCHEL (THE HOTTET GUY IN HOLLYWOOD!), Abbie Cornish, Michael Keaton, and Jackie Earle Haylie. In theaters February 12.

This Is the End star Jay Baruchel hangs with Don Johnson. His newfound fame seems to be agreeing with him –he’s getting hunkier by the minute. (via Twitter)
Comedy stars playing themselves in an earth-shaking end-of-the-world scenario in which they die in horrible, hilarious ways. Starring James Franco, Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, Michael Cera, and Emma Watson. Directed by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. Coming in June, which can’t come soon enough.
Based on the rather impenetrable Don DeLillo novel about a billionaire asset manager’s limo ride across midtown Manhattan to get a haircut (huh?), Cosmopolis stars a debonair-as-fuck Robert Pattinson and the always scrumptious Jay Baruchel, which makes it a must-see for me. It got mostly mixed reviews at Cannes, but even the worst reviews make it seem intriguing.
Variety writes: “An eerily precise match of filmmaker and material, Cosmopolis probes the soullessness of the 1% with the cinematic equivalent of latex gloves… Pattinson’s excellent performance reps an indispensable asset.” Robbie Collin of The Telegraph gave the film four stars out of five, stating, “It’s a smart inversion of [David] Cronenberg’s 1999 film eXistenZ: rather than being umbilically connected to a virtual world, Packer is hermetically sealed off from the real one. At its heart is a sensational central performance from Robert Pattinson – yes, that Robert Pattinson – as Packer. Pattinson plays him like a human caldera; stony on the surface, with volcanic chambers of nervous energy and self-loathing churning deep below.” Owen Gleiberman of Entertainment Weekly stated, “Cosmopolis includes its own version of the Occupy hordes: scruffy, vengeful protesters who run around the streets, and into restaurants, brandishing the bodies of dead rats. … Pattinson, pale and predatory even without his pasty-white vampire makeup, delivers his frigid pensées with rhythmic confidence.”
I think it looks amazing.
