There used to be a time when Eddie Murphy and Adam Sandler could do no wrong at the box office. No matter what vehicle they starred in, it would undoubtedly become a bona fide blockbuster. But as they say, nothing lasts forever. The two veteran comedy actors find themselves on a list that no Hollywood actor wants to be on. To quote one of Murphy’s movies, I’m sure he wants to be Trading Places with anyone else right now.
Also landing on the list are one-time rom-com queens Katherine Heigl and Sandra Bullock. All it takes is one box office bomb to bring down their dollar return average. Each lady had exactly that with One For The Money and All About Steve respectively. You can also add Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close to Bullock’s less-than-stellar grosses. Find out below who ranks No. 1 on the list with a return of $2.30 for every dollar they were paid.
Yesterday, a trailer surfaced for a new film titled The Frozen Ground. I had heard a little bit already about this film after seeing star Vanessa Hudgens post a few pics online while filming in Alaska. Now, we are able to get a first glimpse at the film which showcases Hudgens in a quite a provocative role- something we’re not quite used to seeing from the former Disney star. Donning lingerie and a shorter do, Vanessa takes on the role of stripper Cindy Paulson who becomes the target of a crazed sex killer.
Enter John Cusack who plays the family man (Robert Hansen) with a 13-year-old dark secret. After killing multiple women, Sergeant Jack Halcombe played by Nicolas Cage is on the case trying to figure the man behind these brutal murders. After a closer encounter Robert, Jack soon learns that he may have become Hansen’s latest target. To up the ante, the film is even based on true events. The film also stars 50 Cent. I think the trailer is a definite leak as the clips don’t really mesh well together and is even missing the film company’s logo at the beginning. However, it definitely gives a great glimpse of what we can expect from the feature. Check it out below.
The movie trailer for this new action/thriller film called “Justice” has just been released with the film opening in theatres in the U.K. on November 18th. After watching the trailer, I definitely want to watch it but I should note that as of now, there is no North American release date set.
Here’s what it’s about: Nicolas Cage plays a high school teacher named Will Gerard – happy with his life and looking forward to spending the rest of his life with his love Laura, played by January Jones (Mad Men). When Laura is attacked and left hospitalized, Will meets a mysterious man (Guy Pearce) that offers to help him get revenge on the person that did this to Laura. Emotionally distraught and not sure what to think, he accepts the offer. The guy tells him that the only thing is that at some point they may ask a favor of him. Little did Will know that the justice he sought for Laura came at a very high price and his world was about to turn upside down.
In a nutshell, the film puts to the test how far a man will go to seek his vengeance. Check out the trailer below.
I love a good thriller…and Cam Gigandet shirtless (playing a bad guy) isn’t a bad thing either! The trailer for “Trespass” has just been released, starring Nicole Kidman and Nicolas Cage as a wealthy couple that are held for ransom in their own home. As the situation unfolds, there is discovery of betrayal and deception, but the two must find their inner strength if they’re going to survive the masked criminals that have invaded their home.
Directed by Joel Schumacher with a budget of $35 million, I think the movie looks really good – especially, if you’re into thrillers (which I am). I get the same vibe as “Glass House” or “Panic Room” in terms of an “inside the house” thriller that isn’t a horror, yet keeps you on the edge of your seat. The film gets a limited release in the Netherlands on September 1, 2011 and in the United States on October 14, 2011.
I haven’t done a Top 10 list in a long time so I thought it would be fun to make one to enjoy this weekend. However, I didn’t want to make it about music, or movies or TV. So with all of that content removed what in the world would I list? Celebrity Mugshots that’s what. With the amazing amount of hilarious photos and situations out there, I couldn’t help but find my ten favorite for various reasons and share them with you.
Charlie Sheen has been in the public multiple times this year with his departure from Two & A Half Men but if you take it back to 2009, you’ll remember that Sheen was arrested for domestic violence. He allegedly tried to choke wife at the time Broke Mueller who was renting an Aspen home. I love this mugshot because Charlie still shows his smug attitude in it despite his situation and being arrested. Must be the Tigerblood.
Last night, Nicolas Cage was arrested for domestic abuse in New Orleans, following a very loud argument with his wife, Alice Kim. According to TMZ, a cab driver pulled over and saw Cage (who was very drunk) yelling at his wife and also saw him push her. The cab driver then called the police to intervene.
When the cops arrived, Cage essentially dared them to arrest him. They police kept telling him that he and his wife should just go home, but he kept insisting, “Why don’t you just arrest me?” So they did. The booked him and he’s been charged with domestic abuse and disturbing the peace.
His wife isn’t a complaining witness and doesn’t want him charge, saying that there was no physical contact. At this point, the bond has been set for $11,000.
The Sorcerer’s Apprentice is the latest modern day magic movie brought to us by the amazing people at Disney. It stars Nicholas Cage, Jay Baruchel and Alfred Molina, all three actors who I liked before this movie, and now LOVE even more. The movie is loosely based on the segment of the same name in Fantasia…fun right?
The story starts us off back in the 700′s with the story of Merlin, and how sorcerer’s had apprentices. Merlin had three apprentices: Balthazar, Veronica and Maxim whom he taught all he knew. But an evil was afoot named Morgana who wanted to create an army of dead magician’s to take over the world. One of the three apprentice went over to Morgana’s side (Maxim), and aided in killing Merlin. Balthazar managed to trap Morgana and Veronica who had taken Morgana’s soul into her body. Merlin gave Balthazar his ring and said that only the Prime Merlinian could stop Morgana, and that the ring would show him who that was. After thousands of years of searching, and trapping other Morgana’s in the magic doll, he finally found Dave, a 9 year old boy.
If you were like me and didn’t know anything about this movie, you probably saw the trailer with Hit Girl in it, a 13 year old swearing and using words like fuck, cunt, and chopping everyone pretty much into bits and thought “Yeah, I want to see this.” Well let me tell you about this movie.
KICK ASS in another graphic novel adaptation. If you don’t know what a graphic novel is, it’s like a really long comic book and they are usually pretty fun to read. So the story with Kick Ass is about a comic book obsessed kid named Dave who wonders why no one in real life has ever become a superhero. Why hasn’t anyone just put on a costume of some kind and help people? His friend quickly chime in and say that radioactive spiders don’t exist, to which he replied what about Bruce Wayne? And it got me thinking…he had a point. Batman didn’t have any superpowers, just a really handy belt and a bunch of gadgets. True the gadgets were pretty impossible to work in real life, but still he had a point.
Dave ordered a costume online, and decided that from this day forward he would help out people when he could as a real life superhero. No radioactive spiders, no super powers, no utility belt. Armed with his green and yellow costume, Timbaland boots, and two wooden sticks, he set off. He saw these two guys trying to break into a car, and decides to stop them. Everyone was so pumped because they wanted him to succeed, but all of us in the theater knew what was coming. Kick ass got his ass kicked, then he got stabbed, and then he got hit by a car. He regained consciousness long enough to tell the ambulance driver to not tell anyone about the costume, to say that he found Dave naked, which leads to a pretty hilarious side story.
