2009: A Look Back

30 December 2009 6:16 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

2009 was another big year for movies thanks to, in varying degrees, the recession, 3D ticket prices and Taylor Lautner’s abs. For funsies we have compiled a fairly trivial movie calendar for the year that was. Here you will find all the big events that, for whatever reason, may not have gotten a lot of media coverage.  Hit the jump to begin reminiscing about the past 12 months:

January

9- David S. Goyer does his best to stop Odette Yustman from ever getting another leading role in a film. (The Unborn)

16- Mall cops lose what little public respect they had. (Paul Blart:  Mall Cop)

23- Brendan Fraser ruins an otherwise perfectly good British film. (Inkheart)

30- Liam Neeson gains 20,000 cool points. (Taken)

-

February

6- Steve Martin makes a big mistake. (The Pink Panther 2)

13- The rules of scary movies are upheld. (Friday the 13th)

20- Madea goes to jail. »

Harold Ramis Talks About A Third ‘Ghostbusters’ Movie

30 December 2009 2:11 PM, PST | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

When there’s something strange in the movie gossip world, who ya gonna call? Harold Ramis.

Speaking to Heeb Magazine, actor/writer/director Harold Ramis has finally dished out some solid information about what’s going on with that “rumored” third movie in the Ghostbusters trilogy:

“Something’s going to happen. Dan [Aykroyd] did write a spec GB3 screenplay a few years ago, but no one was motivated to pursue it. Now, 25 years after the original, there seems to be some willingness to proceed and apparently a substantial public appetite for a sequel. We’ll introduce some new young Ghostbusters, and all the old guys will be in it, too. Think Christopher Lloyd in Back to the Future … GB3 is progressing with plans to shoot next summer and release in 2011 … Oh, and I have two one-of-a-kind Ghostbuster yarmulkes sent by fans.”

Other than that, we also know for sure that Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg, »

29 December 2009 1:41 PM, PST | Twilight Examiner | See recent Twilight Examiner news »

According to Movie Mistakes' calculations, there were twenty-nine errors in New Moon (the same amount found in Night At The Museum: Battle Of The Smithsonian). Some of the errors in ... behind Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen and Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince (with seventy-one mistakes apiece).

Kanye West Wins Another Award: 'Most Egotistical Male Celeb'

29 December 2009 7:42 AM, PST | MTV Newsroom | See recent MTV Newsroom news »

You know what they say about payback. Well, while Taylor Swift is probably building a new wing on her Nashville mansion to hold all the Entertainer of the Year awards she's been scooping up lately, her one-time tormentor Kanye West has racked up just one ignoble honor in the wake of his infamous Vma stage crash, and it's probably not going to be vying for mantle space anytime soon.

In a recent poll from Parade magazine online, readers voted West (MTV News' #7 Man of the Year) the "Most Egotistical Male Celeb." It's an impressive feat, made even more notable given the competition: Chest hair-flaunting "American Idol" judge Simon Cowell (#2) and wiggy New York real estate mogul Donald Trump (#3). West won out over the two Mount Narcissus icons with 46 percent of the vote. While Trump could only pull 27 percent of the vote and Cowell got an anemic 13 percent, Diddy scored »

17 Again Tops Blunders Survey

29 December 2009 4:02 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Zac Efron movie 17 Again has scooped an unwelcome award - it's topped a list of 2009's most gaffe-prone films.

The comedy, about a man who gets the chance to rewrite his life by returning to his youth, contains almost 100 goofs and continuity errors.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen tie for second place with 71 blunders, while Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian and The Twilight Saga: New Moon round out the top five, with 29 mistakes each.

The survey, by film website moviemistakes.com, also revealed disaster movie 2012 has 27 errors while Nicolas Cage's sci-fi blockbuster Knowing has 25.

In total, eagle-eyed film fans spotted more than 900 gaffes in movies released during 2009.

Moviemistakes editor Jon Sandys says, "This isn't meant to be assigning blame - generally these are noticed by the biggest movie fans, even in films they loved. That said, you wonder how some of these blunders get past the editing room." »

Vanessa Hudgens Seeks Justice Over Nude Photos

24 December 2009 8:43 PM, PST | Celebrity Mania | See recent Celebrity Mania news »

Vanessa Hudgens is reportedly serving a website with a legal drama over nude pictures of hers. TMZ, which was first to break the news, reported that the 21-year-old beauty has filed a lawsuit against the owners of www.moejackson.com due to a fact that the site has posted her "self-portrait photographs" and refused to take them down.

The lawsuit read, "The photos were obtained by unknown methods and posted on the Internet by an unknown person without Hudgens' knowledge or consent." TMZ further noted that the suit doesn't mentioned that the pictures taken using a cell phone capture the Gabriella Montez of "High School Musical" series in her birthday suit, but the photos on the site tell a different story.

The girlfriend of actor Zac Efron is reportedly seeking for damages. She also asks the judge to issue an injunction which orders the site to remove the images. At the same time, »

Exclusive: Sorry Fans, Mr. T Will Not Appear In The A-Team Remake

24 December 2009 1:12 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

I like to go to the gym 3-4 times a week. Sometimes 5 if my schedule allows it or I manage to get out of bed and find the motivation to put my gym clothes on (the hardest part about going to the gym is going to the gym). Since I live in La-La Land sometimes I usually see celebrities there. Nothing new, I've talked about it before. I've seen Zac Efron, Neil Patrick Harris, Michael Jai White a million times, Jamie Pressly, etc. etc. It's no big deal, they just go about their business. One celeb I've seen a few times is Mr. T, who is one of the nicest guys you'll ever talk to. Very humble, but 100% T. I said hello to him today and asked him if he was going to appear in the A-Team remake. I was hoping he was going to say yes, but unfortunately that wasn't the case. »
