To help stir up some excitement for his new romantic comedy, Charlie Countryman, Shia LaBeouf tweeted this picture from the set. See the full image after the jump. There’s bush, but no stalk, so I don’t know how much excitement he’s going to stir up, but KUDOS FOR THE EFFORT, SON. Continue reading

It’s Rosemary’s Baby meets Carrie meets Paranormal Activity as found footage reveals a pregnancy gone very, very wrong. From Screen Rant: “A newlywed couple (Allison Miller and Zach Gilford) who, upon returning from their honeymoon, find themselves expecting a bouncing bundle of joy much sooner than they’d anticipated; as the pregnancy progresses, signs suggest that their child has far more sinister origins than they realize, while a mysterious cult takes a vested interest in the baby’s birth from afar.”
Zac Efron continues his quest for big-boy acceptance in his new raunchy brom-com That Awkward Moment. In the Red Band trailer here, you see him rock out with his cock out (kind of) and take too much Viagra and pee horizontally on the toilet (which I’m pretty sure is not a solution. Discuss among yourselves). That Awkward Moment also stars Miles Teller (from The Spectacular Now), Michael B Jordan (from Fruitvale Station) and the grotesquely named Imogene Poots. It hits theaters January 31.
Oh, what I wouldn’t give for a hemet car of my very own! I wonder if they make them in pillbox hats or porkpies or top hats or, oh!, maybe a nice cloche? CAN SOMEBODY PLEASE MAKE ME CLOCHE CAR? Anyway no, Channing and Jonah aren’t making Lidsville: The Movie (although HELLO! They SHOULD BE!), they’re filming a scene from the upcoming 21 Jump Street sequel, 22 Jump Street (which doesn’t REALLY make any sense, but I’m just going to go with it). Looks fun.

The trailer’s gorgeous enough, I suppose, all rolling CGI clouds and mist-filled CGI mountains and millions of hunky CGI soldiers walking in lock-step – very 300 meets Immortals. Kellan’s in a loincloth looking scrumptious and at one point an old man screams “I paid good money for you, I expect a return!” – been THERE, done THAT. But as exciting as this trailer is, I ultimately found myself missing Kevin Sorbo’s saucy wit. What do you think? Will you see it?
In 47 Ronin, a band of leaderless samurai – 47 of them to be exact –must seek the help of Keanu Reeves—a half-breed they once rejected — as they fight their way across a savage world of mythic beasts, shape-shifting witches, and wondrous terrors. Notable because A) we love Keanu, B) Rinko Kikuchi is FAAAAABULOUS and C) WOW favorite Rick Genest aka Zombie Boy has a pretty hefty role, so yay. Watch the new international trailer here, that features a new look at some of the mosters.
Charlie Countryman stars Shia LaBeouf as the titular hero who travels to Bucharest after his dead mother appears to him in a vision and tells him to go. Once there, he finds himself in “the hallucinatory Romanian underworld filled with violence, and, strangely, love.” Co-starring Evan Rachel Wood, Hannibal‘s Mads Mikelsen, Melissa Leo, and the always perfect Rupert Grint.
Speaking of Rupert: Here’s the entire pilot for his CBS comedy Super Clyde, which was sadly never picked up.
And finally, here’s the trailer for the upcoming George Clooney, Matt Damon, Cate Blanchett, Bill Murray and Jean Dujardin snoozefest The Monuments of Men. Yes, snoozefest. Even with that cast. Of course I’ll still see it because HELLO, MATT DAMON IN MILITARY DRAG, but other than that…
Francis Lawrence, director of Catching Fire, the second installment of the Hunger Games series (out November 22), discusses righting the wrongs of his predecessor in New York magazine:
Will you be using the shaky cam, like in the first movie?
No! [Laughs.] No shaky cam. I think a lot of people will be happy to hear that.
The first film skimped a little on showing us the strategy behind the Katniss-Peeta love story.
I felt the same. I felt the love story in general was, um, a bit buried in the first one. I wanted to bring the love story to the surface. And when I say love story, I mean the triangle.
Will this one have better CGI?
Uh, yeah. I think the effects are phenomenal. If you know the book, there’s a monkey-mutt attack, and Weta, who did Rise of the Planet of the Apes and King Kong, did the monkeys for us.
Is Peeta [Josh Hutcherson] still going to be the shortest person onscreen?
[Laughs.] No. No, he’s not.
It’s fine, actors can step on boxes.
[Laughs.] He and Jen get much closer in height when she’s in flats, which is a good thing. You throw her in some heels, and it’s all over. (Photo: Pacific Coast News)
