Leprechauns, ruined birthdays, and home school taunting.
Romantic comedy anthologies are becoming rather popular these days, particularly ones that revolve around a particular holiday, but comedy anthologies are a hard thing to come by — 2007's The Ten comes to mind as does the classic Kentucky Fried Movie — but coming early next year is Movie 43, which stars almost the entirety of Hollywood and has a director list almost as long. In fact, it's hard to believe there are some actors and directors that aren't associated with Movie 43.
Revealed in just the red band trailer alone, Chris Pratt and Anna Faris share a romantic(?) moment; Halle Berry ruins a blind kid's birthday; Terrence Howard reminds a basketball team of the advantage they have; Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts decide to give their home-schooled son an authentic high school experience; Emma Stone checks in on Kieran Culkin's STD; and Seann William Scott and Johnny Knoxville capture a leprechaun (Gerard Butler). That's not all, of course, Chloe Grace Moretz, Richard Gere, Hugh Jackman and Kate Winslet also appear in the very NSFW trailer, which does its very best to be as outrageous and offensive as possible.movie trailers and more

Alec Baldwin was not kicked off an American Airlines flight for playing "Words With Friends" as has been reported, but because after he was told to turn off the game he stormed to the bathroom and slammed the door so hard the captain called back to flight attendants to find out what was happening. At any rate, Zynga, the company behind "Words With Friends," tweeted a pic in support of Baldwin.
Terrence Howard's estranged wife Michelle Ghent was granted a restraining order against the actor, claiming he regularly beats her and threatens to kill her, but Howard says it's all a lie. In documents filed with the court Ghent alleges Howard:
— Threatened to throw her off a balcony
— Said, "If you tell anyone about my business, I'll kill you and no one will ever know."
— Yelled, "B!tch, walk home. That's my car, I pay for it."
— Said, "I'll hit a woman quicker than I'd hit a man."
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Kim Richards is back in rehab not just for alcohol abuse, but for "other problems" and that they're "serious." Meanwhile, Kelly Bensimons, who was booted off this season's show, has gone back to her modeling roots and can clearly still rock it at 43.
Forbes has released its list of Hollywood's Best Actors for the Buck and Kristen Stewart is at No. 1. For every $1 Stewart is paid her films earn an average $55.83. KStew is followed by Anne Hathaway ($45.67), Robert Pattinson ($39.43), Daniel Radcliffe ($34.24), and Shia LaBeouf ($29.40).
Last month Forbes listed the most overpaid actors in Hollywood, and Drew Barrymore was the runaway winner/loser, earning just 40 cents for every dollar spent on her movies. Posted 12.07.11 by reelz
Trailers for the upcoming George Lucas-produced World War II drama Red Tails have been arriving almost once a month since the first one arrived in July.
The newly released theatrical trailer, the fourth so far, focuses mostly on aerial combat, not unlike the trailers that have come before it. The movie follows the inspirational story of the Tuskegee Airmen, the first African American combat pilots to serve in the US military, but were often given second-rate planes to fly and faced segregation and discrimination, often by their commanding officers. Red Tails isn't the first movie to tell the story of the Tuskegee Airmen, but the latest trailer shows it could be the best version so far, with way better air fights and moving, inspirational speeches. watch the trailer >> Posted 11.11.11 by Ryan
At the end of last month, the first, action-packed trailer for World War II combat movie Red Tails debuted, ending a long wait for producer George Lucas, who admitted that he had been "wanting to do Red Tails for 20 years."
Not even another month later, a second trailer has been made available from MTV as well as a brand new poster.
Red Tails tells the real-life story of the Tuskegee Airmen, the 332nd Fighter Group of the U.S. Army in World War II that was made up of the first African American combat pilots to serve in the U.S. military. A constant target of racial discrimination, the pilots were given second-rate planes to fly during their dangerous missions. The Airmen painted the tails of their airplanes red, hence the nickname "Red Tails". The nickname isn't covered in the latest trailer, which is almost non-stop aerial combat. watch the trailer >> Posted 08.18.11 by Ryan

Terrence Howard's prophetic utterance of "next time" from Iron Man is the key to Jon Favreau and company's biggest surprise revealed at San Diego Comic-Con. During an Iron Man 2 panel discussion, Favreau told the crowd that War Machine will indeed appear in the movie:
We wanted to use Comic-Con as our venue to have the first images of War Machine come out. There's been talk of whether it was [in the film] or not, and we've been holding back. We haven't talked officially about it. We wanted to show the fans some of that.
For those unfamiliar with the character from the comic books, Favreau explained:
War Machine is another character that's based on the Iron Man technology. James Rhodes, or 'Rhodey,' the character in this film played by Don Cheadle [replacing Howard], he has his own suit. It looks different, different coloring, different weapons on it. War Machine and Iron Man, typically in the books, are at odds. And so, it's Iron Man facing up against someone of equal power and stature using the same technology.
Favreau then showed a 5-minute clip of the movie that featured Cheadle being offered the armor by Tony Stark rival Justin Hammer (Sam Rockwell) and ended in an action shot of War Machine firing weapons from his armor.
With Mickey Rourke looking to complicate things as nemesis Whiplash and Scarlett Johansson possibly working to bring down Tony Stark as well, the addition of War Machine is sure to give Robert Downey Jr. a lot to deal with in the sequel. After seeing the footage of War Machine, Downey Jr. was not pleased.
"I can't believe your rig is better than my rig," Downey Jr. said to Cheadle.
"It was a contractual thing," Cheadle responded. Posted 07.27.09 by Ryan
Entertainment Weekly's coverage of Iron Man 2 did more than just show Scarlett Johansson in her Black Widow costume. It also revealed a few spoilers about the upcoming sequel. WARNING: If you'd like your Iron Man 2 viewing to remain unspoiled, time to stop reading.
Most superhero movie sequels are given the "double villain" treatment and Iron Man 2 is no different. However, this time villains Mickey Rourke as Whiplash and Sam Rockwell as weapons-manufacturing rival Justin Hammer won't be working alone. They'll be joined in their fight against Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) by ... a cockatoo? Rourke explains the need for his new right-hand, er, shoulder, man.
I told [director Jon] Favreau, "I don't want to just play him as a one-dimensional p----." He let me have a cockatoo, who I talk to and get drunk with while I'm making my suit.
Johansson's Black Widow will be complicating matters, specifically for Stark's former assistant, Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow). "The men want it to be, like, 'Ooh, the girls are fighting over Tony,' but it's not as standard as that," explains Paltrow. Downey Jr. agrees that there's a "a weird male catfight fantasy" to contend with between the two women, but this is the Iron Man franchise, as Downey is quick to point out.
We're horny. Not, like, can't-bring-your-kids horny, but just ... horny.
The replacement of Terrence Howard's Colonel Rhodes with Don Cheadle will also be addressed "in one exchange," says Cheadle. "We're not trying to fool people."
Considering the pressure put on a sequel whose predecessor was as successful as Iron Man, there are likely plenty more surprises in store. No one is more aware of that, however, than Downey Jr.
There are a lot more invisible eyes on us now. People are going to be more critical. That's their prerogative.... In a way, there's no way to win, except to win. Big. Posted 07.17.09 by Ryan
When Iron Man actor Terrence Howard was surprisingly replaced by Don Cheadle for Iron Man 2, money was rumored to be the problem. With Iron Man 2 already shooting, Howard spoke with Parade about what really happened:
Marvel made a choice, and it was a very, very bad choice. They didn't keep their word. They didn't honor my contract. They produced a great bounty with the first one but they put it all in the storehouse and you were not allowed in. They did the same thing with Gwyneth Paltrow, from what I've been told. They did it with almost everyone except Robert Downey [Jr.]. One of the things that actors need to learn to do is always stick together, one for all and all for one.
Howard has also seen the script for Iron Man 2 but won't elaborate:
I've seen the script, I know what's going to happen, but I'm not revealing anything. I believe in karma. When someone does something wrong, you don't have to get them back. Everything right will return the favor for you.
Perhaps karma will have Howard replace Cheadle for Iron Man 3 where Mandarin is rumored to be the villain, perhaps played by Iron Man actor Faran Tahir. Tahir won't be in Iron Man 2, but Clark Gregg (returning as S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Coulson) and Kate Mara (in an unknown role) will be, having been recently added to the cast. Posted 04.26.09 by Ryan
It's no secret that Hollywood loves Obama, and in the wake of his victory, the new president is so beloved that even Obama impersonators are having little problem getting into Hollywood clubs. So when is the biopic coming, and who will play the leading role? Our vote goes to Terrence Howard, who should have some time in his schedule after being replaced for Iron Man 2 because the sequel's producers wanted him to take a drastic pay cut. But will any production that materializes be able to afford him? If not, maybe the real Obama can play himself. We hear he works cheap, only $7692 a week. Posted 11.05.08 by reelz
