Transforming once again, Johnny Depp stars as vampire Barnabas Collins in ‘Dark Shadows‘, the Tim Burton movie based on the 1960s TV series of the same name. The original series was more of a gothic soap opera, whereas this new film is more of a campy comedy, like The Addams Family.

After being cursed by the witch Angelique Bouchard and locked away in a coffin for centuries, Collins is freed in the year 1972 and must adjust to the way the world is now. He returns to Collinwood Manor to find that his once-grand estate has fallen into ruin, and his dysfunctional clan each harboring their own dark secrets.

The film also stars Michelle Pfeiffer, Chloe Moretz and Helena Bonham Carter. The part in the trailer where Collins discovers a TV for the first time seriously made me burst out laughing. The film looks fun and I’m definitely interested in watching it. Check out the trailer below!

Don’t you just hate it when you’re talking with your friends and for some reason you can’t think of that particular movie, actress or actor you need to prove your point? I know, I do. Thank God for IMDB.com. I can’t even begin to tell you how many times the site has eased my mind and more importantly, proven my point. What in the world did we do before IMDB?

The online database of entertainment information receives more than 110 million monthly unique users. Not sure, how many of those searched for Natalie Portman or Mila Kunis, but enough did to rank the two “Black Swan” actresses first and second in terms of most profile views for 2011. In addition to their award-winning ballet film, both actresses stared in similar themed romantic comedies (No Strings Attached & Friends With Benefits). It’s only fitting that these two place side-by-side. Who do you think won in the end? Find out below and the other celebrities rounding out IMDB’s Top 10 list.

I am so excited for this TV series turned movie remake. 21 Jump Street may not be out until March 16, 2012 but a new red band trailer has been released giving us a pretty solid glance at what to look forward to. There is also buzz flying around that Johnny Depp who as you know starred in the original series, makes more than just a cameo in the new film. Bonus! It doesn’t hurt that hotties Channing Tatum and Dave Franco are in the film too.

Just like the original concept, Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill go undercover as high school students to crack down on youth crime. The two are recruited for the 21 Jump Street unit because they can pass as students. The two are sent in to infiltrate a drug ring that is going on in the school. When the duo realizes that the popular kids are behind it, the two decide to throw a party to crack down. The result seems to be nothing but pure comedy.

Some interesting facts about the film. Emma Stone was originally offered the lead female role in the film but turned it down to star in the new Spiderman movie. The role instead went to Brie Larson who you may recognize from The United States of Tara. Jonah Hill co-wrote the screenplay and specifically wrote in the cameo role for Johnny Depp. Overall, I cannot wait to see this film, regardless of having to wait until next Spring to see it. Without further ado, check out the red band trailer below.

Obviously, there not the only celebs gracing the cover of magazines this November. All you have to do is take a quick glance at your local newsstand to see that. So, I decided to pick a few of my favorite celebrities pimping themselves out on magazine covers this month and ask you, which one is your favorite. I’ve chose publications ranging from British GQ to Gay Times Magazine featuring Kellan Lutz, Taylor Lautner, Darren Criss, Kristin Stewart, Johnny Depp and Nicki Minaj. Take a quick look at all of them and cast your vote.

Kellan Lutz

Lutz talks about what he’s up to now that filming “Twilight” is over. Here’s what he’ll miss the most about the franchise. “The best part of being a part of the franchise was hanging out with the fans at the premieres and the fan conventions and all the signings.” More of Kellan Lutz at http://www.nylonguysmag.com/.

First Look: Johnny Depp In “The Rum Diary”

In: Movies, Tyrell, Videos

Who’s ready for a rum-soaked vacay to Puerto Rico? That’s exactly what we’re store for when we call head to the theater to check out Johnny Depp in the novel turned film, The Rum Diary. Depp plays Paul Kemp, a freelance journalist who hits a critical turning point in his career when he finds himself writing for a rundown newspaper in the Caribbean. However, Kemp finds hope when he meets the beautiful Chenault from Connecticut played by Amber Heard. The film also stars the talented Aaron Eckhart.

In the trailer, we see Johnny in some of his finest comedic hours. Is it just me or since Pirates of the Caribbean, Depp has found the exceptional skill of playing a very convincing drunk. Food for thought. The film is brought to us by the brilliant Bruce Robinson who adapted the screenplay from the novel. My favorite moment is when Depp and Michael Rispoli are driving in a car together without a front seat. You’ll laugh out loud at the result. Check out The Rum Diary trailer below.

Disney Shuts Down “Lone Ranger” Reboot

In: Movies, Tyrell

Back in April, Donovan revealed that Disney would be starting production this fall on a reboot of the classic western film The Lone Ranger starring Disney mega-star Johnny Depp. To many people’s surprise (including myself), Johnny was not slated to star as the Ranger but as his Indian sidekick Tonto. Then in May, a second reveal slated Armie Hammer of The Social Network fame to saddle-up and play the role of the Ranger.

Now it looks like this highly anticipated remake has already hit it’s final roadblock with Disney announcing that it has shut down the project. Word on the street is that it came down to final budget numbers which involved talks between Disney and executive producer Jerry Bruckheimer. Jerry has brought Disney a ton of success with the Pirates franchise but reports say that Jerry’s proposed budget for the film was out of Disney’s range.

Director Gore Verbinski who also helmed the Pirates films was onboard with Jerry for a budget increase saying he didn’t want to budge on the numbers he knew he needed to make this film a success. So what factors came into play when Disney decided not to fork over the coin?

Armie Hammer is certainly on a roll. Ever since his critically-acclaimed turn in “the social network“, Hammer has been lining up A-list projects one after another. He was cast as Leonardo DiCaprio’s gay lover in the biopic, “J Edgar“. Then he signed on to play Prince Andrew Alcott in “Snow White” with Julia Roberts who is playing the evil queen. Now comes word, Armie has scored another highly-coveted role.

Long-rumored to be the front-runner to play the lead in the movie adaptation of “The Lone Ranger“, Disney finally confirmed Armie Hammer’s casting. Armie will play the masked Texas Ranger, popularized in the iconic 1950s television series. Johnny Depp was previously announced to play the Lone Ranger’s sidekick, Tonto. Depp who is part Native American, recently told Entertainment Weekly his intentions for playing Tonto.
