Movie characters have the best names, don't they? The greatest ones get the balance just right, a little bit preposterous and yet still kind of believable. Cole Trickle, Johnny Utah, Memphis Raines, Clubber Lang. They're all in my top ten.
The Death And Life Of Charlie St. Cloud adds another one to that list. It's a name good enough to make you wonder how much fun the school roll call would have been when the teacher got to him. Quite fun, probably. Sadly, Charlie St. Cloud, the film, doesn't share the same joie de vivre. In fact, it spends much of its time on the opposite, presenting Charlie as a character who doesn't want to live.
For the first five minutes, he looks like »
Based on Ben Sherwood’s acclaimed novel, Charlie St. Cloud is the story of a young man trapped in a self-imposed limbo. In order to honour a heartfelt promise Charlie has sacrificed a promising future sailing the wide world in favour of a lonely small town life haunted by the ghosts of his past.
HeyUGuys were intrigued to know what had lured the all-singing, all-dancing, Efron to take on such a role (and indeed what had inspired Igby Goes Down writer/director Burr Steers to helm the project) and we took the opportunity to ask.
The mainstream teen themes of Charlie St. Cloud appear an unusual choice for the man who made Igby into such a cult figure but in more recent years Steers has co-written rom-com How to »

In a surprising move, distinctly voiced veteran character actor Jared Harris has apparently been offered the role of Professor Moriarty in the upcoming "Sherlock Holmes" sequel at Warner Bros. Pictures reports Latino Review (and later confirmed by Deadline).
The 49-year-old British actor, son of the legendary Richard Harris ("Harry Potter," "Gladiator"), has seemingly beat out bigger name actors like Daniel Day Lewis, Brad Pitt and Russell Crowe who've all been rumoured for the villain role. Harris has acted and won various awards for his work on stage, in television and across many independent and mainstream movies over the past two decades.
His most notable roles of late have been as Lane Pryce on "Mad Men", the first season's main antagonist David Jones Roberts on "Fringe", the indomitable Captain Mike in "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button", and as Andy Warhol in "I Shot Andy Warhol".
His other credits include "Igby Goes Down, »

Mad Men star Jared Harris has signed on to play villainous Professor Moriarty in Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes 2 The 49-year-old British actor, who is best known for the role of Lance Pryce in Mad Men, will portray the "Napoleon of Crime" opposite Robert Downey Jr's Holmes. The son of the acclaimed actor Richard Harris, Jared has also appeared as a recurring character on Fringe and in big screen fare such as The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Igby Goes Down. Jude Law - who played Dr Watson - will return for the Sherlock Holmes sequel, joined by Noomi Rapace as the unknown female lead and Stephen Fry as Sherlock's elder brother, Mycroft Holmes. »
Have you ever hear a piece of casting news that you agree with so wholeheartedly that your only reaction is "Yes! That!"? Just me? Well either way, it seems to be happening a lot around here lately. First there was the inspired casting of James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender in X-Men: First Class, then came the news that Sasha Baron Cohen would take on the role of Freddie Mercury in an upcoming biopic, now it would seem that Guy Ritchie is closing in on his Moriarty for the highly anticipated Sherlock Holmes sequel...and his choice may surprise you.
The actor taking on the role of arch-nemesis to England's greatest fictional detective has been a notable question mark since the success of the first film. In it, we caught just a glimpse of Moriarty's hand and a brief silhouette but as the franchise continues, his presence will naturally loom larger »

"Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World" hits shelves on DVD and Blu-Ray in November, and Universal has released the full specs for every iteration of Edgar Wright's live-action adaptation of Bryan Lee O'Malley's hit comic book series.
While the movie didn't quite meet expectations at the box office, it was difficult to find anyone who didn't have high praise for Wright's kinetic, effects-driven celebration of everything that made O'Malley's comic so great. And like any good DVD/Blu-Ray release, the movie comes packed with some cool bonus features, too.
Personally, I'm a little intrigued by the deleted scenes and alternate footage, as I managed to sneak into an early workprint of the film and, well... the ending of the unfinished version of the film was quite different from the theater cut I saw.
"Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World" will be released November 9, and along with the full specs for teh film, »

Edgar Wright’s Scott Pilgrim vs. The World is slated to hit DVD and Blu-ray on November 9th. Special features include deleted and alternate scenes, bloopers, and cast and director commentary. Judging by the releases for Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, I’m sure there will be plenty more extras (both discs are must-owns). As we reported in August, there’s also a special feature that shows off a piece of animation that Wright’s brother Oscar did back in 2008 that demonstrated the physics of Scott’s massive hit-combo against Matthew Patel in the first fight.
Hit the jump for a list of special features that will be on the UK version (and hopefully the Us version as well). Scott Pilgrim vs. The World has an Msrp of $29.98 on DVD and $39.98 on Blu-ray.
[Update: we received a press release with full details on the home video release, plus a high-resolution image of the cover art. Check out the updates after the jump.]
Bleeding Cool reports that the UK DVD/Blu-ray will offer:

Update: Kristen Bell (You Again, When in Rome, pictured right) and Anna Paquin ("True Blood") have joined the cast of Scream 4. It's expected they'll be the two stars that get killed off at the beginning. The Scream movies are famous for killing off their most famous stars in the beginning (ala Drew Barrymore in the original and Jada Pinkett Smith in the second). Scream 4 is currently filming in Michigan through the end of September.
July 29, 2010: Keke Palmer wrote in her blog that she heard on set that Bow Wow will be in Scream 4. Sometimes the folks around a set know stuff that hasn't officially been released...Scream 4 has been clouded in secrecy Except for casting, however, the franchise often l

Directed by: Edgar Wright
Running Time: 1 hr 53 mins
Release Date: August 13, 2010
Plot: Scott (Cera) falls for a new girl in town named Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead). What he doesn’t realize is that he must do arcade-like battle with each of her seven ex-boyfriends.
Who’S It For? The younger generation, and those desperate for something different with pep. Plus, if you’re a fan of Cera, you’ll definitely be happy with this one.
Expectations: The buzz on this was pretty good. I loved the concept, love the main actor and love the director. It was my number two on my list for Top 7 Most Anticipated Movies of the Summer.

Okay, this is going to be a short one. Anybody who grew up in the 80s or 90s, see this film right now! Director Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz), has taken Bryan Lee O'Malley's critically acclaimed post-millenial graphic novel series about an awkward slacker/hipster - or is it hipster/slacker? - falling for the girl of his dreams only to find out that he has to fight his way through her exes in order to claim her and has turned it into a movie for the masses. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World delivers on all fronts: amazing and absurd action sequences, touching and realistic everyday life scenes, and hilarious cultural references that had the crowd rolling in the aisles when the film had its Canadian premiere at Fantasia this summer. Michael Cera, who developed his chops in similar roles in Superbad and Juno, not to »
With Scott Pilgrim’s incessant fighting and self-loathing, the only way he can function is with a little help from his friends. Friends such as gay roommate Wallace Wells, played by Kieran Culkin (Igby Goes Down), and the oh-so-angry Julie Powers, played by Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreation). Okay, Julie might not technically be Scott’s friend but, according to Plaza, she might secretly love him. That’s just one of the details that was revealed when we sat down with these two tremendously talented actors to discuss their roles in Scott Pilgrim vs. The World which hits theaters August 13.
This was one of those conversations where not a whole lot got done, but the joking and chemistry was totally worth the ride. Hit the jump to read about some rare moments of on set improv, Culkin’s long hours in bed with men, Plaza’s cursing habits and much more. »

Burr Steers made his feature film directorial debut with the acclaimed 2002 offbeat dramedy Igby Goes Down, for which he also wrote the screenplay. He then went on to co-wrote the hit romantic comedy Hot to Lose a Guy in 10 Days and, most recently directed 17 Again, which was the first time he worked with actor Zac Efron.
Now, he has re-teamed with the popular young actor on Charlie St. Cloud, which is Efron’s most adult and most emotional role to date. Adapted from the novel “The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud,” the story follows Charlie (Efron), who loses his younger brother (played by Charlie Tahan) in a tragic accident that changes his life forever, and explores the impact that grief can have on one’s life.
While at the press day for the film, Collider was given some time to speak with director Burr Steers about how his »

Poor Zac Efron: he’s at that awkward Movie Star stage. Without question, he’s got It: that indefinable onscreen charisma, that presence you can’t look away from. Does he have a long and varied career as an actor ahead of him? Sure... and yes, he can act -- he’s got more than just that distractingly pretty face to his credit. But Hollywood doesn’t have a lot of options for him while he’s stuck in the postadolescent, not-quite-grownup phase. Until he matures a little more into a romantic comedy leading man or an angsty law-enforcement type (and the latter might be a stretch no matter his age), his options at this point are college sex comedy, torture porn horror... and that’s about it, unless someone can convince him that High School Musical: Post Grad! is a good idea. And I hope they can’t. »

A man of many hats, Burr Steers began working in Hollywood in the late 1980s as an actor, appearing in the cult thriller Intruder and, later, in the modern classics Pulp Fiction and The Last Days of Disco , among other films. It was in 2002, however, that Steers stepped behind the camera to write and direct Igby Goes Down before working on more mainstream fare, including scripting How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days and directing his first work with Zac Efron, 17 Again . This Friday sees the release of Steers' newest film, Charlie St. Cloud , the story of a young man who, brought back from the same accident that killed his brother, continues to speak and interact with either the ghost or the memory thereof. Steers took the time to have a refreshingly candid talk with »
