A couple of weeks ago I blogged the news about Will Ferrell and Adam McKay producing the new comedy He’s Fucking Perfect (sources vary as to whether it’s “Fucking” or “Fuckin,’” but whatever). It’s a bit of a dream story for aspiring screenwriters: Lauren Kahn worked as McKay’s assistant for years and then sold the screenplay for $1 million (there’s a story in that if you ask me). He’s Fucking Perfect revolves around a young woman who Facebook-stalks the men her friends are dating so she can check to make sure they’re not weirdoes. And as if those weren’t enough reasons to hate her a little bit, now Emma Stone is in talks to star in the movie – I’m officially jealous.
GEEK FACT: Will Ferrell has been attacked by animals in several of his films. He is attacked by grizzly bears (while filming giant pandas) in Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (2004), a cougar in Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby (2006) and a grizzly bear in Semi-Pro (2008) – poor guy.
Idris Elba aka John Luther is back but the near-genius detective is struggling with his own demons. After the brutal murder of his wife, he goes back to work in the newly created Serious and Serial Unit. Headed by former police complaints officer Martin Schenk (Dermot Crowley), it is Luther’s chance for a brand new start. But is that what he really wants?
For a chance to win a copy of Luther: Series 2 on dvd just answer the following question correctly.
Idris Elba starred in which American drama series?
A) The Sopranos
B) CSI: Miami
C) The Wire
Please leave your name and answer in the comments box below. Luther: Series 2 is out on DVD and Blu-ray now and for more information on the film please visit www.2entertainvideo.co.uk
Note: Competition ends at 12pm on Sunday 17th July and the winner will be notified by return email.
There’s seriously no stopping Adam Sandler. In his last film Just Go With It he wore a fake nose but now he’s playing a woman? Well, I guess it worked for Robin Williams (except in this film no one is pretending to be a Scottish nanny). Anyway, the basic plot of his latest film Jack and Jill revolves around Jack (Sandler) and his annoying, boisterous twin sister Jill (you know who) travels from the Bronx to visit her brothers family in LA. Cue sibling squabbling, weight gags, sex gags and Katie Holmes probably wondering if she’s done something bad in her past life to deserve this. Oh, and for some inexplicable reason, Al Pacino plays himself, or at least a version of himself.
Say hello to the Hobbit Dwarves, from left to right you’ve got Nori (ex-Orc Jed Brophy), Ori (Adam Brown) and Dori (Mark Hadlow).
“These three brothers, all sons of the same mother, could not be more different from each other. Dori, the oldest, spends much of his time watching out for Ori, the youngest; making sure he’s not caught a chill or got himself killed by Wargs or Goblins. Nobody quite knows what Nori gets up to most of the time, except that it’s guaranteed to be dodgy and quite probably, illegal. Dori, Nori and Ori are intensely loyal to each other – and whilst they are perfectly happy fighting amongst themselves, woe-betide any anyone who means harm to one of these brothers”.

Here’s the latest trailer of Guillermo del Toro’s horror film Don’t Be Afraid Of The Dark. The films about a young girl played by Bailee Madison (I loved her in Just Go with It), who goes to live with her father (Guy Pearce) and his new girlfriend (Katie Holmes) in a big old house. Naturally, there’s something (or things) in there that shouldn’t be and well, you know the rest.
GEEK FACT: Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark is a remake of the 1973 TV show of the same name.
Anyone that knows me, knows that I don’t like to ask the same old boring questions in interviews. You could probably tell from when I ended up schooling Ashton Kutcher about J.Cole and Bradley Cooper about the 48 Laws of Power. Anyway, now DJ Whoo Kid (50 Cent’s DJ) has put my Russell Brand interview on Tinie Tempah’s Foreign Object Mixtape. Click on the picture below to download it. You can hear Tinie’s freestyles over Chris Brown’s “Look At Me Now”, Lil Wayne’s “6 Foot, 7 Foot” and the Wiz Khalifa featuring single “Till I’m Gone”. The U.S version of Tinie’s album Disc-Overy comes out on US iTunes on the 17th May!

I don’t know anyone that doesn’t love Home Alone. Me and family love it so much, it’s become a Christmas tradition to watch it every year (which started 21 years ago). Anyway, now the famous Chicago house is up for sale for 2.4million dollars (only small change). John and Cynthia Abendshien who own the 4,250 square foot house are selling it because their daughter who became Mac’s playmate during the six-month shoot has moved out and they want to downsize. Check out the pictures and video of the iconic house below and let me know if you make an offer.
Even before the news was released that Osama Bin Laden was killed, Hollywood has been planning to do a film about the Al-Qaeda leader. The Hurt Locker director Kathryn Bigelow and her screenwriting collaborator Mark Boal have been working on a film version of the book called Kill Bin Laden. Lets just all be glad that it’s not going to be anything like the 2010 Bollywood comedy Tere Bin Laden (now you know why I can’t stand Bollywood films).
This looks hilarious and the fact that Mark Mylod (Shameless, Entourage, Ali G In Da House) directed it gives me a lot of hope. The flick stars Zachary Quinto, SNL’s Andy Samberg, Dave Annable, Community star Joel McHale, and Anna’s real-life husband Chris Pratt!
What’s Your Number? comes out in the UK on the 4th January.
Bridesmaids is one film that I CANNOT wait to see! Just incase you’ve missed all the hype, it’s written by Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo and is directed by Paul Feig and Judd Apatow. In a nutshell, it’s the female version of The Hangover now, who doesn’t want watch that!
Melancholia is directed and written by Lars von Trier (Antichrist). It stars Kirsten Dunst stars as Justine, a woman who is questioning her happiness on her wedding day and clashes with her sister Claire (Charlotte Gainsbourg). You’d think that would make the bulk of the movie? but it doesn’t. Another planet has emerged from behind the Sun and is on an apparent collision course with Earth. It’s a strange combination of genres (think Margot at the Wedding meets Armageddon). Check out the trailer below to see what I’m talking about.
Melancholia comes out in the UK on the 1st July.
Hello Ceaser aka Andy Serkis! He’s the leader of the new ape revolution in Rise of the Planet of the Apes. The film comes out in the UK on the 5th August and also features James Franco, Tom Felton, Freida Pinto, John Lithgow and Brian Cox.
No, it’s not that evil Lord Voldemort, Daniel is starring in the new film The Woman In Black. It’s directed by James Watkins (Eden Lake) and adapted by Kick-Ass co-writer Jane Goldman from Susan Hill’s ghost novel. The film isn’t out in the UK until the 28th October but have a peek at the teaser and behind-the-scenes video below – it doesn’t look too bad!.
