Johnny Weir Says Gay Protestors Are “Idiots.” “Referring to the new anti-gay law in Russia, which forbids virtually all public mention of homosexuality as a threat to children, the athlete flippantly characterized it as ‘no anal sex in front of libraries.’”
Johnny tries to explain.

Paul Walker movies: Few worthwhile efforts away from the ‘Fast and Furious’ franchise (photo: Paul Walker in ‘Hours’) (See previous post: “Paul Walker Dead: Fast and Furious Actor Killed in Fiery Car Crash.”) Aside from the Fast and Furious franchise, Paul Walker was featured in about 15 movies since the turn of the century; most of those were little-seen releases that did nothing to expand his following beyond fans of slick, high-speed shenanigans, e.g., John Glenn’s thriller and straight-to-dvd release The Lazarus Project (2008), co-starring Piper Perabo; Wayne Kramer’s box office bomb Running Scared, with Vera Farmiga; John Stockwell’s mix of deep-sea adventure and crime thriller Into the Blue, with Jessica Alba and Josh Brolin; and another straight-to-dvd effort, Mukunda Michael Dewil’s poorly received thriller Vehicle 19 (2013). Paul Walker’s handful of more prestigious and/or successful films were Clint Eastwood’s World War II drama Flags of Our Fathers »

It's definite: Universal is rebooting The Mummy again, and the new film is being readied for 2016...
It looks as if The Mummy is further down the road though, as Universal has a director in place for the new film, and has now confirmed a release date.
The new Mummy will arrive in cinemas on April 16th 2016, and it's going to have Andres Muschietti at the helm. He was previously responsible for directing Mama.
There's no casting news yet, but this is a full-on reboot we understand, so it won't be Brendan Fraser. We'll let you know when we find out who does get the call...

Vanessa Hudgens looks Oscar worthy in a new trailer for her latest movie “Gimme Shelter,” a compelling true story about a teenager who flees her abusive mother, played by Rosario Dawson, tracks down her real father, played by Brendan Fraser, but ultimately finds love in an unusual place. Hudgens character, “Apple” is a feisty, head-strong young girl, who wants something more for herself than her drug-addicted, prostitute mother can provide. [...] »
A pregnant teenager flees life with her drug-addicted mother and ends up living on the street before being welcomed into her first real home in this gripping first trailer for Gimme Shelter, an extraordinary tale of survival and redemption inspired by actual events. Starring Vanessa Hudgens, the film will be in theaters January 24, 2014.
For 16-year-old Agnes “Apple” Bailey (Vanessa Hudgens), life has been a constant struggle to overcome the harsh reality of a subsistence existence with her abusive mother, June (Rosario Dawson), and June’s string of lowlife boyfriends. When she finds herself pregnant and alone, Apple temporarily takes shelter with her biological father, Tom (Brendan Fraser), a wealthy Wall Streeter living in a New Jersey mansion with his wife Joanna (Stephanie Szostak) and two young children. But Apple’s inability to adjust to her new circumstances, and her refusal to terminate her pregnancy, soon force her back onto the streets. »

Brendan Fraser stars in this odd couple comedy about a 14-year-old trivia geek (Alex Wolff) who dreams of Harvard but ends up at a third-rate college for boozers and losers. While finding an unlikely friend in degenerate 'mature' student Leo (Brendan Fraser), Eli uses his amazing powers of general knowledge to become the star of the collegiate mastermind team. Indie darlings Parker Posey, Julia Garner and Fred Melamed add zest, while Fraser and Wolff earn extra credit for buddy chemistry. »
You may think from the image above that Gimme Shelter is a zombie movie, but you would be wrong. While Rosario Dawson and Vanessa Hudgens do an admirable job of uglying themselves for roles as poor, drug addicts, it is for the dramatic true life story of a girl fighting her way out of the foster care system and into a better life. Gimme Shelter has all of the makings of a typical, treacly feel good Oscar bait movie but it may be more than that. Also starring Brendan Fraser and James Earl »

Vanessa Hudgens wants people to see her as a real actress and has taken on roles to take her in that direction. She recently starred in films such as Harmony Korine’s Spring Breakers and a thriller called The Frozen Ground. Now she's got a new movie coming out called Gimme Shelter, which looks like might be the best thing she's done yet.
The movie is based on a true story, and she plays 16-year-old Agnes “Apple” Bailey, who is pregnant and lives a life of homelessness before finding caretakers in a local shelter.
As a pregnant teenager, Apple’s journey plummets her into a perilous struggle until finding salvation in a suburban shelter for homeless teens. With provisions of unprecedented comfort, a collective sisterhood connection and female empowerment, the shelter elevates Apple to break the shackles of her past and inspires her to embrace the future with clarity, maturity »

"Where was God when I was suffering all these years?" Roadside has debuted the full theatrical trailer for Ron Krauss' Gimme Shelter, a film starring Vanessa Hudgens as a pregnant teenager going through tough times. Despite the title, the film has nothing to do—unfortunately—with the Rolling Stones song of the same name, "Gimme Shelter", but that doesn't mean it deserves to be completely ignored. This trailer does have powerful moments, making me perk up and take an interest. The cast includes Rosario Dawson (who looks crazy!), Brendan Fraser, Stephanie Szostak and James Earl Jones. Check this trailer out. Here's the first full theatrical trailer for Ron Krauss' Gimme Shelter, originally from Yahoo (via Tfs): As a pregnant teenager, Apple's (Vanessa Hudgens) journey plummets her into a perilous struggle until finding salvation in a suburban shelter for homeless teens.

If you saw Spring Breakers but were still not convinced Vanessa Hudgens was trying to shed her squeaky-clean Disney image, then feast your eyes on the trailer for Gimme Shelter. Hudgens sheds her long locks to play a pregnant teen on the run from her junkie mother (Rosario Dawson). After a pit stop at her wealthy father's (Brendan Fraser) house, she winds up on the streets. It looks pretty bleak until she meets a kindly hospital chaplain (James Earl Jones) and finds a shelter for teens where she finally feels safe and at home. Source: Roadside Attractions The usually glamorous Hudgens is going full Monster-style Charlize Theron for this role, and I'm very curious to see if the transition is worth it. Though her grungy look is the most interesting part of this trailer, I was really excited to see Fraser pop up as her dad. The movie is out Jan. »

Attention, Miley Cyrus: This is how your distance yourself from your Disney roots while maintaining integrity. Vanessa Hudgens, the multi-talented former "High School Musical" sweetheart, takes on yet another gritty movie role with "Gimme Shelter's" Apple.
In the Roadside Attractions film, out Jan 24, V-Hudge plays a pregnant teen who has been abused for years by her mother, played by Rosario Dawson. Brendan Fraser plays Apple's dad, a Wall Street mansion-dweller who abandoned her early in life and now wants to force her into an abortion. Only a man of the cloth (James Earl Jones) and the warm embrace of her peers at a girls' shelter can help Apple find a new lease on life.
In the new trailer, an acne-covered Hudgens, riddled with facial piercings, recklessly hacks off her hair before recounting her story to the weepy sounds of Lana Del Rey's "Born to Die." There are »
Vanessa Hudgens has had a pretty wild 2013, going from Harmony Korine's neon soaked pop nightmare "Spring Breakers" to the wilds of Alaska with Nicolas Cage in "The Frozen Ground." And she'll continue to shed her good girl image heading into 2014 with a role that'll make her near unrecognizable. Sporting a choppy dew and grime splattered face, Hudgens leads the upcoming "Gimme Shelter." And a new trailer has landed for the indie that'll find her working opposite Rosario Dawson, Brendan Fraser, James Earl Jones, Ann Dowd and Dascha Polanco, playing a pregnant, homeless teenager, forced to flee her abusive mother, rejected by her Wall Street father and trying to survive on the street. It looks like she'll make it as hope arrives via the sympathetic folks she meets in shelters, with Hudgens herself apparently going deep to research the part. We'll see how her work pays off with "Gimme Shelter" drops on January 24, 2014. Watch below. »
