Time once again to hit you sickos off with some mayhem that's sure to get you itchy. Grab your can of Raid, slip into your Tyvek suit, and dig on this exclusive clip from Hostel Part III (review here)!

Hey Jamie Oliver, any chance of inviting me round to yours for Christmas? Beautiful!
Jamie hates this time of year. All that excess, the greed, the enforced jollity. Especially in these difficult times. Christmas round the Olivers is cancelled; there'll be a plate of Turkey Twizzlers and nothing else, bah humbug ...
Don't be daft, he loves it. "I love it, I love it, I love it all," he says, and has a little dance in his Santa suit. He's got a snow gun; he's spraying it round the garden. Jools is there, and the kids – Poppy, Daisy, Petal and Buddy. Happy days, it's an Oliver family winter wonderland. Ho ho ho. It's Jamie's Christmas with Bells On (Channel 4).
First up then, a really hearty slap-up breakfast: home-made waffles and epic chocolatey hot chocolate, cooked on the campfire, because ... well, because it's a beautiful day. And beautiful is a beautiful word; come on, »

It's that time of year again: no, not Christmas, the time when the year's most promising unproduced scripts are slapped together on the Black List and we all get to take a look at what Hollywood agents, studio executives and the like have been going gaga about during the last 12 months. And while several of the titles are already in active development (more on that in a moment), one has just scored a big talent injection, with Drew Barrymore signing on to direct When The Street Lights Go On.
Written by Eddie O'Keefe and Chris Hutton, the '80s set coming-of-age drama takes a leaf out of Stand By Me, following a teenage boy stumbling across the bodies of a 17-year-old beauty and the English teacher she was having an affair with. The story is related by our hero, Charlie, who fancies himself as a young filmmaker (shades of Super 8 here, »
The Tracking-Board learned exclusively that Barrymore has signed and the project is being fast-tracked by producers Ron Howard and Brian Grazer via their Imagine Entertainment company. Imagine acquired the spec script in July, and it recently placed third on TB’s “2011 Hit List” and second on this year’s prestigious “Black List,” annual compilations of Hollywood’s most-liked unproduced screenplays.
It’s unclear if Street Lights will be Barrymore’s next film, or one of a multitude of others she is reportedly involved with, like New Line’s How to Be Single based on Liz Tuccillo’s novel. It’s about a series of New Yorkers navigating relationship curves, and a potential structural follow-up to the studio’s other marketing monsters (Valentine’s Day, »

 Because Hollywood couldn't fit all of its stars in Garry Marshall's New Year's Eve , it's also giving us What to Expect When You're Expecting, which stars pretty much everyone else. Such as: Anna Kendrick, Elizabeth Banks, Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez, Brooklyn Decker, Chace Crawford, Dennis Quaid, Rodrigo Santoro, Joe Manganiello, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Matthew Morrison, Chris Rock, Thomas Lennon, Ben Falcone, Megan Mullally, Rob Huebel, and Rebel Wilson. Based, somehow, on the extremely popular pregnancy manual first published in the '80s, the ensemble comedy follows several interlinking storylines all centered around the miracle of childbirth. Watch the first trailer after the jump. [via Movieline ] New Year's Eve may have the higher-profile cast, but What to Expect When You're Expecting's is funnier -- it's got three Bridesmaids actors, even! -- and accordingly, the trailer for the latter looks more entertaining. Which isn't saying much, but still. The jokes don't seem to especially fresh, »

I think news that the very popular pregnancy book, What To Expect When You’re Expecting, was going to be making its big-screen debut took everyone a little bit by surprise, given that the book itself isn’t so much a novel as a does-what-it-says-on-the-tin guidebook. (I believe – I’m yet to be expecting, myself.)
In reality, the film isn’t specifically adapting the book itself, but rather taking the idea and turning it into a film, and Yahoo Movies have just put up the first trailer, and it looks pretty excellent; a rom-com for us to look forward to next year.
When you have an ensemble cast that includes the likes of Elizabeth Banks, Anna Kendrick, Cameron Diaz, Dennis Quaid, Jennifer Lopez, Chace Crawford, Chris Rock, Matthew Morrison, Thomas Lennon, and Joe Manganiello, it’s either going to be a huge hit or a big disappointment, and this certainly »

Though this weekend will see the clash of dozens of A-list talent in New Year's Eve, next year a smaller number of big stars will find themselves pregnant in the ensemble romantic comedy What to Expect When You're Expecting, based on the best-selling instructional book by Heidi Murkoff. Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez, Chris Rock, Anna Kendrick, Elizabeth Banks, Dennis Quaid, Glee's Matthew Morrison and many more star in the film which follows five different couples expecting the arrival of a child in their lives. There's barely a chuckle in this trailer, even with Rob Huebel and Thomas Lennon. Here's the trailer for Kirk Jones' What to Expect When You're Expecting from Yahoo! Movies: Kirk Jones (Everybody's Fine, Waking Ned Devine) directs What to Expect What You're Expecting, written by Shauna Cross (Whip It) and Heather Hach (Freaky Friday) adapted from the best-selling pregnancy instructional book of the same name. »

I think it's quite apparent what trailers will be playing in front of New Year's Eve this weekend as first we got the trailer for The Lucky One and now we get the first trailer for What To Expect When You're Expecting based on the global bestseller by Heidi Murkoff and Sharon Mazel. I can only assume the trailer for One for the Money will complete the trifecta. When it comes to What To Expect When You're Expecting the story has been adapted by Shauna Cross (Whip It) and Heather Hach (Freaky Friday) and follows six couples of varying ages and backgrounds in the run-up to delivery of their babies, in a manner very similar to New Line Cinema's ensemble features He's Just Not That Into You, Valentine's Day and, you guessed it, New Year's Eve, which I just reviewed earlier today (read that here).

You don't have to know much about AfterEllen.com bloggers to know that we are suckers for women in tank tops. One of us even devotes substantial space on her personal blog to featuring such women — and we are ever so grateful.
Sometimes, however, a pretty woman in a tank top can lead us to places we're not sure we want to be. And that brings me to this — a publicity still for the movie Raze.
I confess, my first thought was that these two women — Sabrina (Zoë Bell) and Jamie (Rachel Nichols) — are asleep. After all, Jamie seems to be embracing Sabrina, and they are wearing the standard bedtime uniforms of lesbians everywhere: pajama pants and tank tops.
Actually, these two women are in a fight to the death and Jamie has Sabrina in a choke hold. That's what the "Fight or Die" tagline means.
Still, the »

If your idea of a good movie is Rachel Nichols (Conan the Barbarian) and Zoe Bell (Whip It) fighting each other to the death in nothing but wife-beaters and sweatpants, just go ahead and hit the jump right now. If you need a little more prodding, how about the fact that their new project, Raze, has been touted as a cross between Hostel and Fight Club? In the film by director Josh C. Waller (The Nail), Jamie (Nichols) and Sabrina (Bell) are pitted against each other in a vicious fight for survival in what appears to be a tournament-style death-match. The tagline of the movie reads, “Fight or Die” and that pretty much explains it all. Hit the jump to check out some images from the picture. The first image features an action scene between Bell and Nichols in which the former is about to be choked out. I’m »

Ja from Mnpp here. Have you heard about Imogene? Out next year, it's Kristen Wiig's follow-up to Bridesmaids - actually it's a project she'd been trying to get off the ground for ages that the super duper success of Bridesmaids made possible. It's directed by the duo of Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini who made the splendidly sour American Splendor, and is similarly dark in comic tone. Wiig plays the title character whose plan of using a suicide attempt to win back an extra boyfriend somehow, weirdly, backfires, and she's forced to move home and live with her... let's say difficult mother played by Annette Bening.
Bening! So surely you guys have heard about this movie already. Well there are some pictures and a poster online today, which you can see here. There's something reminiscent of Bening's Mars Attacks! character to the look of her character, isn't there? »
Back again. So losing track of time lately. Fridays as Mondays. Thursdays as Fridays. When am I? Saturday Am? What? But here's the promised second part of the Q&A column. I loved the James Dean question and the Spice Girl question but I'll have to give them their own post or something later because my brain can't deal with their enormity tonight.
Here are a few more questions I wanted to / could answer. As always, I love to hear your answers to the same questions or your responses to mine in the comments.
Matthew: Choose three Oscar-nom'ed/winning actresses from the Aughts whose careers are most in need of redirecting and explain how you would help get them back on track.
I would've said Charlize Theron a year ago but -- yay -- totally back on track these days.

Bye bye, red . hello again, ombré! Drew Barrymore appears to be back on the two-tone hair wagon again after dying her hair red in April. The actress . who hasn't been out in a while . joined pals Cameron Diaz and Kate Hudson (plus Reese Witherspoon) at the Lacma Art + Film Gala Honoring Clint Eastwood in L.A. on Saturday, debuting her new (and also short) do at the event.
In April, Barrymore's colorist Tracey Cunningham told People that the actress prefers to keep her look fresh. "We like to try new things when the seasons change," she added. Since the auburn was "the perfect spring red shade," Cunningham said, it's possible Barrymore's short dark-to-light is what's hot again for fall. Not that it matters for the star; as Cunningham said, "Drew is a color chameleon! Her skin is so pretty that any hair color will complement her eyes."

You might have seen this list in previous years, where Forbes takes the names on its Celebrity 100 list that it produces every year, and cross references it with the earnings of the movie stars on it from their last three pictures. Add in box office data and a few other numbers, and in theory, you get a list of how much per dollar said actors generate.
It’s a flawed list, of course, because if you’re not deemed by Forbes to be worthy of Celebrity 100 status (we can’t think of anything worse ourselves), then you don’t count. But the numbers are interesting, nonetheless.
It seems that Drew Barrymore, though, who tops the list, is being penalised for not making too many films. Her return of investment figure here includes a film she made »
If your name is Will Ferrell, today is a (relatively) good day. The star of The Land of the Lost and The Other Guys can no longer be tarnished with the mantle of Hollywood's least profitable star following the publication of the Forbes magazine list of the top 10 most overpaid actors.
Drew Barrymore is the new queen of excess after Forbes noted that her recent films pulled in a meagre 40 cents per $1 spent. By comparison Ferrell, who has famously topped the list for the last two years running, is now worth $3.50 per $1.
The Saturday Night Live alumnus still finds himself in third place on the list largely thanks to the box-office failure of The Land of the Lost ($70m return on a $100m budget) in 2009. Last year's The Other Guys »

Barrymore's recent movies like Whip It, Everybody's Fine and Going the Distance have generated a return of 0.40 dollars for every 1-dollar that she has been paid, according to the poll's calculations.
Coming in second place, Eddie Murphy's films generated only 2.70 dollars per dollar, Contactmusic said, quoting the poll's findings.
- Shiva Prakash
The Forbes.com poll suggests Barrymore's recent movies have generated a return of just $0.40 (£0.25) for every $1 (£0.63) she is paid by film studio bosses, thanks to box office flops Whip It, Everybody's Fine and last year's Going The Distance, which earned a paltry $17.8 million (£11.13 million) in U.S. ticket sales.
Dreamgirls star Murphy fared considerably better - his films returned $2.70 (£1.69) for every dollar, but it wasn't enough to save him from second place on the list as 2008's Meet Dave and 2009's Imagine That failed to attract fans to open their wallets.
