The Iron Lady’s Five New Brilliant Movie Posters

In: Donovan, Movies

The Weinstein Co. certainly knows how to market a film. The film distributor for “The Iron Lady” released five brand new posters promoting the film’s wide release this weekend. The Margaret Thatcher biopic is already in theatres in the UK, Australia and limited release in North America. These five new brilliant visuals are a great way celebrate the film’s wide release.

Meryl Streep who plays the titular character graces all five campaign-style posters. They were designed to look like campaign propaganda you would see littering city streets and bus stop shelters during a heated election. I love the way the visuals are made to look like Thatcher was running in modern times. There is even a reference to the Occupy Movement in one of them. As you would expect with campaign posters, graffiti scribbled by opponents are reflected in the ads. From devil horns to proclamations of hate, all can be seen in the new promotional ads. Check them all out below.

2012 is going to be the Year of the Blockbuster. This summer movie season is already filmed with highly anticipated releases including The Hunger Games, The Hobbit and The Avengers – just to name a few of course. But one of the films that couldn’t be more anticipated is the third and final instalment from Christopher Nolan’s vision, The Dark Knight Rises. So, it was only fitting that EW chose the Dark Knight himself (portrayed by Christian Bale) to cover their January 2012 forecast issue.

I mean, we all can’t wait to see Anne Hathaway portray the slinky and sultry Selena Kyle and Tom Hardy get his serious villan on in portraying Bane. And with Christian Bale in the bat suit for one last time, director Christopher Nolan promises to bring his A-game for his final effort which hits theaters on July 20. No pressure though considering that previous film grossed over $533 million four years ago and earned star Heath Ledger a posthumous Oscar. EW took a set visit to Rises to chat with Nolan and Bale about the upcoming film. Caution – Spoilers Ahead!.

Last night, CBS housed the People’s Choice Awards hosted by Kaley Cuoco of the networks hit comedy, The Big Bang Theory. The show opened with a hilarious concept of Kaley playing her character from the show as her and the rest of cast got ready to watch the show and cast their votes for the nominees. Suddenly, her agent calls her to attend the show as a seat filler but once she gets there, switches gears and begins to the host the show. While going through her opening monologue, she’s interrupted by Neil Patrick Harris who is sitting in the audience and wearing a mic. Not today NPH, not today.

The show moved along surprisingly quick with only two musical acts throughout the show. The first came courtesy of comeback kid, Demi Lovato who rocked it out in a red dress. The second performance was from Faith Hill who did her country rendition of OneRepublic’s Come Home.

The show also scored a few highlights including a great kiss shared between Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka when Neil won for favorite TV comedy actor. Another slam dunk was Jane Lynch’s portrayal of the show’s seat coordinator. Interviewed by ET’s Mark Stenis, she showed the audience just how she “decides” where celebrities sit. The cast of Pretty Little Liars presented a few categories themselves and the biggest miss of the night goes the horrible CVS Pharmacy product placement stint which went on for far too long. Check out the full winner’s circle and some of my favorite moments in video form below.

Man Crush: Jeremy Jordan

In: Donovan, Movies, Totally GAY!

With the completion of the 2011 Man Crush Showdown taking up my time last week, I neglected to write the first Man Crush of 2012. To make up for that, I have two hotties for you today. First up is Jeremy Jordan. This 27-year-old hottie is not to be confused with 90s pop singer Jeremy Jordan (The Right Kind Of Love) or a popular porn star from the early 2000s. Instead this Jeremy Jordan is an accomplished Broadway actor about to make a big splash this weekend.

Jordan co-stars with Queen Latifah and Dolly Parton in “Joyful Noise” opening this Friday. I caught an early screening of the film and enjoyed it more than I thought I would. Be sure to check out my review of the film on Friday. In the past, I’ve been accused of picking my Man Crushes based solely on looks and a bangin’ body. Sure, Jordan is cute, but what I find the sexiest about him is his voice. Man, can this guy blow. His musical moments in “Joyful Noise” blew me away.

Jeremy was born on November 20, 1984 and grew up in Corpus Christi, Texas. He earned a BFA in musical theatre at Ithaca College. Immediately after graduation, he began working in stage productions in Connecticut and Florida before making it to Broadway. A few of his notable credits on the Great White Way include “West Side Story“, “Bonnie & Clyde” and “Rock of Ages“. For all you “Law & Order: SVU” fans, you might recognize Jeremy from an episode of the NBC crime series in 2008. Get to know this talented vocalist in a few pics below. I predict you’ll be hearing a lot more of him in future years.

This movie looks so good. Hitting theatres on January 20, ‘Haywire‘ stars mixed martial arts actress Gina Carano as a black ops super soldier who seeks payback after she is betrayed and set up during a mission. Actually, Tyrell and I saw a preview on TV the other day for this movie and were completely caught off guard. All is calm, them boom – huge fight breaks out and Gina Carano kicks some ass! The tagline for the film shown on the movie poster is, “They left her no choice.” She is one fierce biatch – I love it.

This first 5-minute scene shows hottie Channing Tatum and Carano (who plays lead character Mallory Kane) in a crazy, unexpected beat-down. The all-star cast also includes Ewan McGregor, Michael Fassbender, Antonio Banderas, Bill Paxton, Michael Douglas and Michael Angarano.

For those of you that hate spoilers, don’t worry. The scene you’re about to watch doesn’t spoil anything. In fact, all it does is make me more interested in watching the movie. I’ve also included the third trailer that has come out, should you want to see more about the whole concept of the film.

Channing Tatum’s previous cover for Details magazine must’ve sold really well. The 31-year-old actor was once again asked back, this time to grace the publication’s February 2012 issue. I don’t know where Tatum found the time to pose for photographer Norman Jean Roy. He sure is one busy boy as of late. Channing can currently be seen in “Haywire” and has four films coming soon to theaters. “The Vow“, “21 Jump Street“, “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” and “Magic Mike” are all scheduled for release in 2012.

Personally, I can’t wait to see all of them but G.I. Joe. The one I’m looking forward to the most is “Magic Mike“. The film is loosely based on his experience as a male exotic dancer from his younger days. Even though director Steven Soderbergh wanted full frontal nudity from his hunky male actors, sadly I don’t think that’s going to happen. The film was just given a Hard R Rating which probably just means butt shots and lots of abs. Not a bad consolation prize.

For his latest Details appearance, Channing talked about all his upcoming film projects and future goals in Hollywood. He also discussed his marriage to actress Jenna Dewan among other things. Check out a few pictures and quotes from Details editorial piece below.

Melissa McCarthy Says “No Wiig? No Bridesmaids!”

In: Movies, Tyrell

Last Thursday, I brought you the news that Bridesmaids 2 could go ahead without it’s writer and star, Kristen Wiig. We took a poll and 61% of you said that a sequel without Wiig would be blasphemy. I personally agree. In my opinion, the second film should be about Annie and her walk down the aisle with that sexy Scottish cop.

However, the studio thought that the second movie could feature Melissa McCarthy as the star. I have to admit, McCarthy’s crazy character of Megan definitely stole a few scenes but I don’t know if it would make for much of an exciting feature film – maybe a straight to DVD kind of comedy though. So, how does Melissa feel about this whole fiasco? Would she want to front the film without Kristen Wiig?

“God, I wouldn’t want to,” McCarthy tells the site at the Palms Springs International Film Festival gala. “I would never want to. I think it’s a terrible idea.” She says she didn’t know what the studio was planning, saying “I don’t know anything about it. But I know that nobody wants to do it unless it’s great. If it is, I will show up wherever those ladies are.”

See what else Melissa is up to after the jump.

Coming to a theatre near you later this year is ‘LOL,’ a teenage coming of age story starring Miley Cyrus whose character struggles with love, freedom, and growing up. Demi Moore plays her mother, who tries to prevent her rebellious party daughter from ruining her life (as moms do). This isn’t heavy stuff, just a fluffy teenage dramedy (with lines like, “It’s so good to love someone so much it hurts” and “I hate her. Look at her – even her underwear is skankville.” Clearly the film is targeted to the girls that followed Cyrus as Hannah Montana.

The film is a remake of the 2008 French film of the same name. Oh, and although LOL may refer to the “Laughing Out Loud” phrase, but it’s also short for Lola, which is the name of Cyrus’ character. An interesting tidbit of info is that there was previously a scene in the film showed Miley Cyrus smoking marijuana, but it was cut after that video circulated the web back in December 2010 showing Cyrus smoking the psychoactive plant salvia divinorum. Oh, Miley. Check out the trailer below.
