I can’t believe I’m about to say this, but Zac Efron looks pretty hot in his new movie poster. Last year, I wrote a post where I listed off five guys who everyone found hot, but me. Zac Efron made that list because he was too pretty boy for my liking. But somehow in the past year, I’ve slowly jumped on board the Efron train.

It all started with “New Year’s Eve“. Sure, that movie was atrocious, but Zac’s storyline with Michelle Pfeiffer was the best thing about the romantic comedy. Will his new film starring another older actress, Nicole Kidman, endear Efron more to me? If the film’s one sheet is any indication, then yes.

Efron and Kidman star in the upcoming movie, “The Paperboy“, with Matthew McConaughey and John Cusack. The thriller is based on Peter Dexter’s 1995 novel and is directed by Lee Daniels, of “Precious” fame. It centers around a case involving a death row inmate (Cusack). An investigative reporter played by McConaughey tries to build a case to free an innocent man from prison. Things get complicated when McConaughey’s little brother (Zac Efron) becomes involved with a woman (Kidman) that Cusack’s character has been writing to from prison. Sounds like a whole bunch drama, right?

84th Academy Awards Poster Revealed

In: Donovan, Movies

Leading up to the Academy Awards, typically the hosts, nominations and behind-the-scenes drama receive all the attention. Sure it’s all well-deserved, but there is one aspect of the show that often gets overlooked and rarely spoken about. Being a lover of album covers, movie posters and graphic art in general, the annual Oscar one sheet is one thing I look forward to seeing.

The Academy just unveiled their official poster for the 2012 Oscars yesterday. This year’s theme for the 84th Academy Awards is “Celebrate The Movies“. The poster features eight images of Oscar-winning films. They span eight decades and include classics and modern blockbusters like “Gone with the Wind” (1939), “Casablanca” (1943), “Giant” (1956), “The Sound of Music” (1965), “The Godfather” (1972), “Driving Miss Daisy” (1989), “Forrest Gump” (1994) and “Gladiator” (2000). All but “Giant” were Best Picture Winners. That film scored a statue for its director George Stevens.

“Whether it’s a first date or a holiday gathering with friends or family, movies are a big part of our memory. The Academy Awards not only honor the excellence of these movies, but also celebrate what they mean to us as a culture and to each of us individually.” – Academy President Tom Sherak

Check out the final product, designed by Anthony Goldschmidt and Mark and Karen Crawford of Blood&Chocolate, below. It’s one of the better designed ones in the past few years. See if you agree.

Who’d You Rather: Johnson VS Diesel

In: Movies, Totally GAY!, Tyrell

Every Wednesday for the past year, I have brought you some of the best Who’d You Rather battles between models, actors, musicians and more. It’s hard to believe that a whole year has gone by and it’s now time for our final showdown of 2011. To finish off the year, I’m pairing two action stars that are pretty darn delicious: Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Vin Diesel.

“The Rock” was well known in the 90′s and early millennium for his work in the WWE. He was the undisputed champion for a while but left the mat to pursue an acting career. A great move considering he went on to star in a few blockbuster films including The Mummy Returns, The Scorpion King and the upcoming G.I. Joe: Retaliation. Dwayne returned to the WWE this past year as the host of WrestleMania.

Vin Diesel is yummy. Period. He burst onto the Hollywood scene with his movies Pitch Black and The Fast and the Furious. His Pitch Black role garnered so much success that it spun-off it’s own film to feature his character solely titled The Chronicles of Riddick. He has since reprised his Fast & Furious role for the franchise and is working as a producer on the upcoming 6th and 7th film. Vin also owns two production companies and a record label, Race Track Records.

So much hotness, only one vote. How will you ever decide. Check out the photos and make your choice below.

I always find it interesting to see what will do well over Christmas, and this year, it looks like Mission: Impossible, Ghost Protocol led the pack. The fourth in the series of film has had some great reviews and brought in an impressive $46.2 million, and $78.6 million in total since it opened.

Santa brought so many new films to theatres. In addition to Ghost Protocol, films that also opened earlier this week include The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, The Adventures of Tintin, We Bought A Zoo, War Horse, and The Darkest Hour. What to see, what to see, right!? It seems like there are almost too many new options for films to see while many people relax in holiday mode.

The only new film I have seen from the ones that came out this week is Tintin, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The 3D film came in 5th this weekend at the box office. Find out how how all the films did below. Did you hit the theatres this weekend?

Well, how’s this for a belated Christmas gift? “Magic Mike“, an upcoming movie loosely-inspired on Channing Tatum’s early days working as a male exotic dancer released its first image today. Even before the photo, I was already intrigued about this project. First off, we get a behind-the-scenes look at the world of male stripping. Who wouldn’t like that? I’m sure there will be plenty of scenes featuring hot buff shirtless guys. Secondly, we get a small insight at what Tatum must’ve experienced back in the day, getting fondled and lusted after. And most of all, the film boasts the hottest male cast in recent memory.

Channing takes on the role of a veteran dancer who teaches a young stripper the ropes, played by Alex Pettyfer. Joining those two and undoubtedly working out hot cheesy firemen, carpenter, and policemen fantasy outfits will be Matthew McConaughy, Matt Bomer, Adam Rodriguez and Joe Manganiello. Speaking of the latter, the “True Blood” star plays the role of a stripper named Big Dick Richie. I can’t wait to see how he earned that moniker. With Steven Soderbergh directing the project, I expect some very steamy visuals. Before directing Julia Roberts in “Erin Brockovich”, his breakout film was the much-heralded “Sex, Lies and Videotape“. Without further ado, check out the first official pic from “Magic Mike” below.

I guess that’s an honor, right? Or does it just mean that either people love the “Fast and the Furious” movies but are embarrassed to go to the theater or simply too cheap to fork over cash. Whatever the reason, the latest installment of the Paul Walker and Vin Diesel franchise earned the title of most-pirated movie of 2011. The film already raked in over $626 million worldwide. Imagine how much more Walker and Diesel could’ve added to their respective bottom lines. Speaking of bottom lines, both of them have very juicy ones ;)

According to TorrentFreak, the racing flick was downloaded an estimated 9.3 million times. Though the number is astounding, “Fast Five” has nothing on last year’s “winner”. James Cameron’s sci-fi 3D opus, “Avatar“, was downloaded more than 16 million times and not only holds the crown for 2010 but for also the most illegally downloaded film of all-time. He truly is “king of the world”.

When comparing the top 10 list’s average over the past two years, one might think that illegal downloading is on the decrease. Not so, according to TorrentFreak. They claim that “alternate piracy sources” including streaming sites and cyberlockers have attributed to the decrease. Plus they say, the number of downloads spread beyond to more movie titles than just the ones in the Top 10. Check out what films “Fast Five” beat to earn this title.

Okay, I have spent the better half of the morning listening to the same song on repeat thanks to @mitchmckamey who sent me the first song released from the upcoming The Hunger Games film soundtrack. I am eagerly anticipating the official release of the upcoming movie in March and hadn’t even THOUGHT about the soundtrack until today! Naturally I was wildly excited when I logged into Facebook today and saw that Mitch had posted the first track on my wall, aptly stating, “This is perfect, no?”

My instant response (before even listening because I’m crazyballs like that) was YES! I have now listened to the song ten times in a row and quickly realized I need to share this gem with every other fan! The artist came as a bit of a surprise, being one of the biggest female pop musicians of the year. I definitely thought the movie would have an indie/hipster feel to its soundtrack, or even a harder, rock/metal sound. Imagine my surprise (and unbelievably glee) when I heard this stripped down artist performing a duet with an up-and-coming band…

Who knew that back in 2001, The Fast and the Furious would become one of Hollywood’s biggest and longest running film franchises. The sequel aptly titled 2 Fast 2 Furious didn’t see the return of beloved star, Vin Diesel but brought on some fresh new faces to keep it interesting. Then, what should have been the end of the franchise was it’s third crack at a sequel, subtitled Tokyo Drift. However, three years later, the films were once again resurrected on schedule being tackled by director Justin Lin. He totally revived my faith in the series with Fast & Furious and the latest film Fast Five.

Now, he’s taking the helm once again to direct the sixth instalment of the franchise and this time, it’s being split into two films with one story. Actor Vin Diesel spoke to The Hollywood Reporter and said, “with the success of this last one, and the inclusion of so many characters, and the broadening of scope, when we were sitting down to figure out what would fit into the real estate of number six, we didn’t have enough space.” According to Diesel, screenwriter Chris Morgan is currently working on the scripts for the films which are rumored to be titled Fast Six and Fast Seven.
