Paramount and DreamWorks Pictures 2009 Picture Preview

30 December 2008 11:40 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Paramount Pictures has just unveiled their 2009 preview and in rather lackluster form I may say as new images from anticipated features such as Martin Scorese's Shutter Island, Peter Jackson's The Lovely Bones and Star Trek were nowhere to be found. Fanboy favorites such as G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen also saw zilch in the updated imagery department. We do, however, have new pics from Eddie Murphy's next kid flick, the previously titled Nowhereland, now labeled as Imagine That and to be honest that is about as exciting as it gets in the updates department. All the cast, director and synopsis information is listed over the course of the next few pages as well as all the release dates for 15 new features. Surprisingly enough, only one of them is actual a Paramount Pictures solo release as the majority of these belong to their previous partner DreamWorks. »

First Images from Brooklyn’S Finest – Playing at Sundance 2009 -- Starring Richard Gere, Don Cheadle, Ethan Hawke, Wesley Snipes and Ellen Barkin in a Antoine Fuqua film

25 December 2008 | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

With the Sundance Film Festival taking place next month, I’ve been sent a ton of images from all the film’s playing. While I’d love to post all of them tonight, since I have images from 50 different films, it’s just not possible. So what I’ve done is taken a few of the new images I’ve been sent and I’m posting them as separate articles tonight. In the coming days and weeks you can expect a lot more image articles. Also, since not much info is known about the movies as no one has seen them yet, I’m using the synopsis’ that are on the official Sundance website. Up now is “Brooklyn’s Finest” and it’s another cop movie from director Antoine Fuqua (“Training Day”). But while his last cop film took place on the left coast, this one obviously takes place in Brooklyn. »

Interview: Taraji P. Henson of ???The Curious Case of Benjamin Button??? on Playing Brad Pitt???s Mother

24 December 2008 11:11 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago ??? It turns out that skipping a ???blowout??? garage sale she was planning paid off for up-and-coming actress Taraji P. Henson after all, she told HollywoodChicago.com???s Adam Fendelman in a Chicago interview. Not being there netted an even grander sale for her acting career: Henson was cast as Brad Pitt???s surrogate mother in the Oscar-buzzing film ???The Curious Case of Benjamin Button???.

???The Curious Case of Benjamin Button??? star Taraji P. Henson in Chicago on Dec. 5, 2008.

Photo credit: Adam Fendelman, HollywoodChicago.com

Rating: 4.0/5.0 The film, which was adapted for the screen by Eric Roth and is based on the 1920s short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald, stars Brad Pitt opposite Cate Blanchett with Taraji P. Henson and Tilda Swinton. It???s a curious film indeed about Benjamin Button (Brad Pitt) who ages backward. He???s born old and grows youthful.

For Henson, auditioning for the part of Queenie (Benjamin Button? »

Blu-Ray Review: ‘Traitor’ Betrays With Exploitation Over Genuine Drama

18 December 2008 10:23 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – “Traitor” walks a fine line between escapism and exploitation and essentially falls in the cracks in between, working as neither a thriller nor a topical drama. Great performances from Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, and Jeff Daniels almost make Jeffrey Nachmanoff’s film worth a rental, but the lackluster Blu-Ray presentation doesn’t help a film that already had some serious problems become more than a marginal recommendation.

The great Don Cheadle plays Samir Horn, a former U.S. Special Operations officer who appears to be involved with international terrorism. Is Samir so deep undercover than even the government has started to suspect him or has he really turned to the dark side of the war against terror? That’s the question on the mind of FBI agent Roy Clayton (Guy Pearce), who first stumbles across Samir during a prison escape in Yemen and then suspects his involvement in a »

Is Tim Robbins Howard Stark In Iron Man 2?

18 December 2008 9:47 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

The rumor river is flowing again, this time giving us word that Tim Robbins will play Tony Stark’s father Howard Stark in the comic book movie sequel Iron Man 2. The character was portrayed briefly during the slide-show presentation at the beginning of the first film by Gerard Sanders, but director John Favreau wanted:

…to get a good actor because he didn’t think the guy who played Howard in the last film could carry such an important scene.

 

It’s no surprise after the changing of Rhodey from Terrence Howard to Don Cheadle not too long ago that Favreau would want a better quality actor to portray such an important character. After all this is Tony Stark’s father, the man who helped shape him into the man we know.

Since the flashback scene will presumably take place when Tony Stark is a young boy (as that’s »

Don Cheadle Talks 'Iron Man 2'

18 December 2008 9:45 AM, PST | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

We know that Terrence Howard was upset and confused about being dropped from Iron Man 2. Robert Downey Jr. admitted he was in the dark about the decision. Guess who else was perplexed by it -- the new Rhodey himself, Don Cheadle.

IGN caught up with Cheadle, who was quick to describe the sudden and surprising offer from Marvel: "I got a phone call from my agent saying they were offering me the part. That was kind of it. It happened very fast, and I had a very short time to answer. Literally, overnight. I was unaware of what was happening with Terrence. And when they called me I asked what was going on with Terrence. I've worked with Terrence, I've known Terrence for a long time. And they said they were moving away from him. So it's not like I was taking Terrence's job, because the job was already gone. »

Twilight Director Hardwicke Off Sequel, New Moon

8 December 2008 9:06 PM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Catherine Hardwicke, director of the big hit Twilight, based on the mega-successful book by author Stephanie Meyer, won’t be returning to helm the sequel, New Moon.  A director hasn’t been named yet, but we probably will hear one very soon.

I’m very surprised about this, and it reminds me of  Terrence Howard being replaced by Don Cheadle in Iron Man 2… No one is safe, I guess.

 

So what happened?  With Summit Entertainment wanting New Moon to come out in late 2009 or early 2010, the official word from both Hardwicke and Summit is that she won’t have enough time to get things rolling to start shooting it by the start of next Spring at the earliest.  Not only that, but the studio may want to save money and possibly shoot the adaptation of the third book Eclipse, back-to back with New Moon.

I’d be concerned about »

George Takes His Big Heart to Germany

8 December 2008 5:00 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

George Clooney was in Berlin on Saturday night, chatting with Santa and flirting with the ladies at the "A Heart for Children" charity gala before heading to dinner with friends. He had been set to receive an award at the event for his work towards calming tensions in Darfur, but George decided to pass the honor on to aid workers in the region. While in Germany, he sat down with the country's newspaper Bild to chat about his family, friends, and why he felt undeserving of the accolades. Here's more: On why he wanted to pass the award on to aid workers: "You know, people are just too nice to me. If I had something to do with the end of the Sudan conflict then Ok. But it’s not over, we haven’t been successful yet. Don Cheadle, Matt Damon, Brad Pitt and I — sometimes we accept prizes in »

Cinematical Seven: Best Sequel Replacement Actors

4 December 2008 7:03 PM, PST | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

I'm hoping that Ray Stevenson will dominate the screen completely as Frank Castle, setting wrongs to right and creating utter mayhem, in Lexi Alexander's Punisher: War Zone, which opens wide tomorrow. I loved Stevenson as Titus Pullo in HBO's Rome, an atypical brute with a little boy's heart and a joyous young man's full-bodied embrace of life. At the very least, he should erase memories of Thomas Jane, who glowered and scowled without ever embodying the role in 2004's The Punisher.

With so many sequels being made, it's inevitable that some actors will not reprise their original role. (Just think of all the fuss kicked up by Don Cheadle taking over the part of War Machine from Terence Howard, in the Iron Man sequel.) Whether it's death, Broadway, pregnancy, caring for a family member, money, or the realization that the sequel will suck, sequel replacement actors face the daunting »

Justin Theroux Corrects 'EW' Reports on Terrence Howard

26 November 2008 9:52 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Iron Man 2 screenwriter Justin Theroux told MTV’s Splash Page that the Entertainment Weekly reports as to why Terrence Howard was dropped from the cast in favor of Don Cheadle were not entirely accurate.

“I can’t really speak to the plot stuff and all the rest of it but Rhodes is completely present in a very strong and big way,” Theroux said Tony Stark's friend and the future War Machine. “He’s completely present.”

“All that stuff that was in the EW article,” said Theroux regarding statements Howard was being dropped when the story being crafted minimized Rhodey’s role,. “I don’t know. I can only tell you what I know which is that from a writing standpoint we didn’t do anything differently [with the character]. It’s not like we were sitting there going, we need less of this or that. We just approached the characters and the story on their own terms. »

More on Iron Man 2 Jim Rhodes replacement

25 November 2008 7:57 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

I've just finished watching the Iron Man film. It's November, and the film was released back in May, but, what can I say? I haven't felt the urge to search out the film to see what all the fuss is about. Well, I watched it the other day, and do you know what? Pisses all over the Hulk. Both Hulks. Brilliant. I love what Favs has done with it, and I really want to see where the second film goes... which brings me nicely onto this article. It seems that a recent article in Entertainment Weekly made a few minor errors regarding Terrence Howard's replacement in the form of Don Cheadle as Jim Rhodes in Iron Man 2.

The EW article said that due to the over-sized paycheck and disputes with Howard over his role of Rhodes in the first film, director Jon Favreau was thinking of curtailing the »
