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…
As you’ve probably heard by now, the lawsuit between Zombie Boy Rick Genest and Fox/FX was recently settled. The price? Although it hasn’t been publically disclosed, a source of mine close to the parties involved are claiming it was for a cool quarter million. Says Genest, in a statement to the Hollywood Reporter: “For complete clarity, I was not approached by Fox to license what I consider to be the use of my likeness or my copyrighted body art in American Horror Story. However, I understand that there was no intent to connect me with the character in their show and I am pleased that I have come to a resolution of this matter with Fox.” I’ll bet.
RuPocalypse Now! What better way to kick off the “zombie challenge” on tonight’s premiere episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race than to have a couple shots of Zombie Boy himself. Check out these highly flammable portraits of Rick Genest aka Zombie Boy by photographer Jonathan Clay Harris taken at Rasputin for the ODD Launch party on Saturday night. Full Daily Freak Show to come.
I’m BEYOND excited about the big ODD fashion launch at Rasputin tomorrow night. Not only is New York nightlife legend Sophia LaMar going to be there as Imperial guest hostess, but – SQUEEEEEEAL – Rick Genest aka Zombie Boy is coming! I’m doing a Daily Freak Show, of course, but what should I ask? Can I see his rectal tattoos? I should also ask ODD-balls Bobby Webster and Judson Harmon just exactly what ODD is. All I could glean from their press release is that it’s “edgy, conceptual, fashion-forward design and thinking at a range of price points,” which makes me think that I WANT IT, but what could IT be? I guess I’ll have to wait until the fashion show, I suppose. See you there, it’s going to be FAGULOUS!
Mugler’s Nicola Formichetti partnered with gaming company CCP to create a fashion avatar for his hot zombie muse Rick Genest, then went on to design a virtual wardrobe for it. The resulting video is fascinating, and not quite as trifling as it sounds. “It’s not outrageous to think,” he explains, “that in the not-so-near future, many of us will have digital avatars of ourselves (for whatever reason) and THAT’S how we’ll interact with people. And once you have that, of course you’ll want to individualize and personalize your avatar because that is how you’ll represent yourself to the community.” Watch the “making of” video above and then see the Rico avatar stomping through a stylishly dystopian space station in his digital black leather jumpsuit below. And while I find much of Nicola’s public persona to be mean-spirited and annoying, he seems to be one of the few truly forward-thinking people in fashion and that’s pretty refreshing. Props to him.
