 Most days, I love my job. Other days, I'm forced to watch the trailer for Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked. Yep, the squeaky-voiced CGI hellions are back for a third installment of their regrettably successful film franchise. Justin Long, Matthew Gray Gubler, and Jesse McCartney return as the Chipmunks, along with Anna Faris, Christina Applegate, and Amy Poehler as the Chipettes and Jason Lee and David Cross as human beings. Watch the trailer after the jump. [via Coming Soon ] I'm admittedly biased here -- I tend to hate CGI creature covers of outdated pop hits, and this trailer contains no fewer than three of them -- but I really have nothing positive to say about this trailer. Normally, my curiosity would be piqued by the presence of talents like Poehler, Faris, Applegate, Cross, and so on. In this case, it just depresses me to see their names on the cast list. I »

This weekend, Contagion spreads onto over 3,700 screens at 3,222 locations (including 257 IMAX venues) and is poised to end The Help's reign. Warrior trains to be a slow-burning crowd pleaser on close to 2,100 screens at 1,869 locations, while Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star and Creature should be contenders for the worst opening title, hitting 1,500 and 1,507 single-screen locations, respectively. With a rash of familiar faces (Matt Damon, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Winslet, Jude Law, etc.) and deadly disease thriller storyline, Contagion recalls Outbreak, only with a darker, grittier, more global bent. Back in 1995, Outbreak debuted to $13.4 million or the equivalent of nearly $25 million adjusted for ticket price inflation. Contagion's infection and potential end-of-humanity angles also echo the recent zombie craze, and the movie's even opening in the same mid-September slot that the Resident Evil franchise is known for. Contagion's diffuseness, though, may not make it a threat to September's record books. »

The history of celebrity self-promotion sets an unlucky precedent for the Oscar hopeful
Tinseltown's in a tizz about Melissa Leo's decision to take out a series of ads for herself in the Hollywood trade press ahead of the Oscars. Upset by her lack of exposure, the 50-year-old favourite for best supporting actress has said she paid for the ads – glamorous colour photographs of herself in evening wear, topped by the word "Consider . . ." – to counter ageism and "show a different side of herself".
It looks likely to backfire, of course, as self-promotion often does. Not just because the Academy has disliked stars who campaign for themselves ever since 1960, when Oscar-nominated actor Chill Wills claimed in an ill-advised ad that the cast of The Alamo were praying harder for him to win than those involved in the real Battle of the Alamo had prayed for their lives. Even Hollywood recognised this as poor taste, »
