Blackface technology has certainly come a long way since comedians first employed the offensive practice in the cartoonishly racist "minstrel shows" of the early 1900s. Witness EW.com's preview of Tropic Thunder, Ben Stiller's new comedy about a film crew shooting the most expensive Vietnam movie ever, which features the first-ever image from the film. Standing in between stars Jack Black and Stiller is a fairly innocuous-looking African-American man; look closer, though, and you'll discover it's none other than Robert Downey Jr.
Funny? Offensive? Either way, you have to admit it's a darn good makeup job.

Exuberant Apple boss Steve Jobs wowed attendees of this year's MacWorld convention in January when he unveiled a revamped Apple TV and promised that owners of the digital video device would have access to over 1000 movies for rent (downloadable via iTunes) by the end of February.
Well, February has come and gone and Apple is still well short of its goal -- 227 titles short, to be exact -- and Apple TV owners are none too thrilled about it. Who's to blame? Jobs points the finger at the studios, claiming that they still haven't gotten their digital distribution house in order, but methinks the Apple CEO shouldn't be making boasts he can't back up.
Ben Patterson has the full story over at Yahoo! Tech.
You might recognize Danny McBride from his small, largely unmemorable roles in alleged comedies The Heartbreak Kid and Hot Rod. But don't let those unfortunate missteps fool you -- McBride is actually quite the talented funnyman, as anyone lucky enough to have seen his independently-produced comedy The Foot Fist Way would attest.
Thankfully, The Foot Fist Way is finally making its way to theaters this May, courtesy of Paramount Vantage, the studio behind such laugh riots as No Country for Old Men and There Will Be Blood. Head over to the flick's official site and check out the naughty, R-rated Red Band trailer in all its beautiful, child-pummeling glory.

ReelzChannel's own Heather Huntington recently sat down with director-on-the-rise David Gordon Green (All the Real Girls, Undertow) while he was out promoting his latest indie fare, Snow Angels, starring Kate Beckinsale and Sam Rockwell.
The director's next movie, Pineapple Express, is already generating strong buzz (of all kinds) despite the fact that Gordon Green is probably the last guy you'd expect to direct a Judd Apatow stoner comedy. Read it all in our exclusive interview with David Gordon Green. Posted 03.04.08 by reelz
Alison Lohman, last seen in Beowulf as the Nordic monster-slayer's jailbait wife, has signed on to star in Drag Me to Hell, the first post-Spider-Man project from director Sam Raimi. According to Variety, Lohman will take the place of Juno's Ellen Page, who departed the supernatural thriller just a few days ago because of those ever-pesky "scheduling issues."
Drag Me to Hell represents Raimi's return to the genre that made him famous after taking a lengthy detour to make the three Spider-Man movies, which I'm told were somewhat successful. The script was co-written by Sam and his brother Ivan.
