I love a good fantasy/sci-fi movie and this upcoming flick and 100% piqued my interest. For those of you who don’t know about this, may I introduce you to Upside Down which stars the acting chops of Kirsten Dunst and the adorable, Jim Sturgess. He’s come a long way from Across The Universe huh? Here is a synopsis of this new film:

Adam (Sturgess) is a seemingly ordinary guy in a very extraordinary universe. He lives humbly trying to make ends meet, but his romantic spirit holds on to the memory of a girl he met once upon a time from another world, an inverted affluent world with its own gravity, directly above but beyond reach… a girl named Eve (Dunst). Their childhood flirtation becomes an impossible love. But when he catches a glimpse of grown up Eve on television, nothing will get in the way of getting her back… not even the laws of science.

So as you can see, the tale is a spin on the classic biblical teachings of Adam & Eve and Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet. The film was written and directed by Juan Diego Solanas who has previously only released two other French films. The film had a budget of $50 million dollars and it looks like they spent every penny wisely. Check out the trailer below.

This may just be the best idea ever. The Los Angeles Times recently sat down with Elton John to talk about his plans for 2012. Not unlike Elton, he gave a long list of projects he was ready to start work on. One of those includes a new album but the more interesting project he spoke of was a forthcoming biopic that he describes as “a surreal look at my life, and not just a factual look at my life, more in the manner of a Moulin Rouge.”

The script has already been penned by Billy Elliot writer Lee Hall and a director and star will be chosen in the upcoming months. Please tell me that Baz Luhrman is atop the director’s list. If you want to carry the same essence of Moulin Rouge, there is no one better. Elton says he has a list of actors he’d love to play himself, but numero uno on the list is none other than pop star and now actor extraordinaire, Justin Timberlake. All I have to say is Elton, you have marvellous taste!

Many or quick to say it won’t work with Justin not even coming close to the look of Elton in his thirties. However, with Justin’s voice and more-than capable piano playing skills, I think he would do great. While some say that Justin’s ability to carry off a full-length feature film is inadequate, think of the film being more like Across The Universe and compare each sequence to a music video. Justin has this in the bag.

It also doesn’t hurt that Justin has played the role of Elton before. In 2001, Elton released throwback album that contained some of his strongest songwriting in years. One of those singles was a tune called This Train Don’t Stop There Anymore. Instead of Elton starring in the music video, Justin was chosen to portray the singer and he nailed it. Check it out below.

To end 2011 and kick off 2012, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol has taken the top spot at the box office for its second weekend in a row. The film brought in $31.2 million over the weekend, bringing its total to $134 million. It actually went up 6% over last weekend (Christmas) which of course is a very good sign. Personally, I’ve actually only heard good reviews about this film and look forward to checking it out myself.

Before I see Ghost Protocol, I’m going to check out Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows, which actually took the second place spot at the box office this weekend. In fact, I’m going to see it in a couple of hours. The film brought in an additional $22 million this weekend, up 9% from last week, bringing its total to $132 million.

Next weekend, I plan on checking out The Devil Inside, which looks like it has potential to be one of the scariest movies I’ve seen. GULP. For now, check out how the films currently playing faired this weekend in the top 10 list below.

With memorable quotes like “Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.”, “Stupid is as stupid does.” and “Run, Forrest! Run!”, it’s only fitting that this Tom Hanks film was added to the National Film Registry. The Oscar-winning “Forrest Gump” was among one of 25 films added to the archive this year. The National Registry of the Library of Congress chooses films to be preserved as cultural, artistic and historical treasures. With the 2011 batch of entries, the total number of films preserved are 575.

“These films are selected because of their enduring significance to American culture,” Librarian of Congress James H. Billington, who chose the 25 films, said in a statement. “Our film heritage must be protected because these cinematic treasures document our history and culture and reflect our hopes and dreams.”

I definitely agree with “Forrest Gump’s” addition to the archives. Personally, I’ve quoted this film numerous times over the years especially when it was first released. Other notable films that were added to the archives were the classic Disney animated film “Bambi” and the oft-referenced thriller “The Silence of the Lambs“. Great to see that Hannibal Lecter will live on forever. Check out the other films that made the cut this year from a list of 2,228 titles nominated by the public.

If I were describe the state of Gotham City in the upcoming Dark Knight Rises, I probably wouldn’t use the term “full of grace”. However, that is how Selena Kyle aka Anne Hathaway categories the city in the new movie despite it’s appearance of chaos from what we’ve been teased with so far.

“You look at Heath’s [Ledger] performance as the Joker [in 'The Dark Knight'], there was a lot of madness there but there was also a grace, and he had a code there,” Hathaway tells the Los Angeles Times. “There’s a lot of belief and codes of behavior in Gotham, and my character has one, too. A lot of the way she moves and interacts with people is informed by her worldview.”

Hathaway’s character of Selena Kyle was prominently featured in the latest trailer to be released from the studio where here “Robin Hood-like” streak came out saying, “there’s a storm coming,” aimed at Bruce Wayne and the city’s ruling class. When Anne chatted with The LA Times, she spilled a few details about the film. Check them out below.

Stallone’s Still Got It

In: Movies, Totally GAY!, Tyrell

Don’t let the age, 65, fool you. Sylvester Stallone has still got it in every sense of the phrase. He’s come a long way from his Rocky days but one thing has always remained the same: Sylvester Stallone is RIPPED. There is a not a soft spot to find on Sly’s body that I can find and at 65, he’s still got it.

Stallone has 3 big action flicks coming out in 2012 which warrant him to have a really fit body. In a new image released from his upcoming film Bullet To The Head, Stallone sports a bullet proof six-pack which makes my jaw drop. When I grow up, I want to have a body like that.

The film stars Stallone as a hitman who is paired up with a young NYPD detective on a high stakes case. The unlikely duo are lead through the dingy back alleys of New Orleans and into the cities power corridors. The two are brought together by vicious murders and will stop at nothing to seek revenge. I can’t wait to check it out. But enough talk, check out Sylvester’s rocking bod below.

Bieber Cast In New Basketball Film

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Movies, Tyrell

Canada’s singing sensation, Justin Bieber has been cast in a new film opposite Mark Wahlberg playing a young basketball star according to first reports from CBC. Wahlberg told MTV that the movie which is yet to be titled will go into production in 2012 and would see Mark play a mentor to the young star, similar to the concept of the film The Color of Money.

Wahlberg had stated back in August that he would love to work with Bieber on film. Why? Well, he’s mainly granting the wish of his young daughter, Ella Rae who thinks meeting Justin Bieber would be a dream come true.

But the question really is, can Bieber act? We’ve seen Bieber’s rocket to fame in his documentary, 3D mega-movie Never Say Never and we all watched him get shot on CSI:, but this would be Bieber’s first attempt at a full-length scripted drama. Wahlberg has all the faith in the “Baby” singer.

“I see the guy and spent time with him and you see what he does and how he does it, and then you actually have a conversation with him and it’s there,” Wahlberg said. I guess I’ll have to wait to see the trailer to make that judgement for myself. Until then, check out some of Justin’s acting chops below.

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?
