The Seven-Month Delay on the Wachowskis’ ‘Jupiter Ascending’ Is a Blessing, Not a Curse

Jupiter Ascending is the newest film from the Wachowskis, the sibling team responsible for the Matrix trilogy, a $150 million science-fiction/action epic starring Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum. Its July release date was staked out over a year in advance, with the publicity machine clicking right along on that timeline: first trailer last Christmas, second trailer at the beginning of the summer, posters in the multiplexes, magazines on the newsstands, etc. And so it came as a bit of a shock when, last night — after most of the sites covering the film had closed up shop for the day — distributor Warner Brothers quietly announced that they’re pushing the film off its July 18 release date to a new spot clear in February of 2015. And movie fans issued a collective Uh-oh. … Read More

Don’t Blame Bruce Willis: How the Internet Made Movie Junkets Insufferable

There’s a fascinating piece of video floating around the Internet today, shot during the recent RED 2 promotional tour, of Bruce Willis being kind of a dick to a British radio interviewer. It’s a perfect storm of awkwardness: the grinning journo in question, Jamie Edwards, isn’t exactly Charlie Rose, while Willis (not renowned for his warmth and affability) starts off grouchy and descends quickly to this: “Has any actor ever told you this, Jamie? This part is not acting. The fun part is over. We’re just selling the film now. Sales.” Brusque as it may be, it’s true. But it was always thus. So why does it seem like we’re seeing more of this stuff now? … Read More

10 Celebrities Who Might Be Real-Life Superheroes

Forget teacup poodles and ripped denim vests — there’s a new fad in Hollywood, and it’s much more exciting than any old-fashioned accessory. These days, it seems like everyone wants a piece of the superhero pie. Although, after all this Avengers hoopla, can you really blame them? Upon hearing that Jennifer Lawrence has been dubbed a “hero” after helping an unconscious stranger, we were inspired to round up some more celebrities who just might be superheroes. Check ‘em out after the jump, and feel free to suggest some appropriate superhero alter egos in the comments — because, well, we can’t kick the idea that Ryan Gosling’s superhero persona should resemble an actual gosling, or perhaps our favorite Gosselin, and neither of those things are very intimidating. … Read More

Let’s Cast the ‘Justice League’ Movie

Considering the speed with which Hollywood usually cashes in on a smash hit, we were frankly a little surprised that it took a full month for the staggering opening weekend of The Avengers to get the long-gestating film version of DC’s equivalent all-star superhero franchise going. But as Variety reports, it’s not that it just happened, it’s that it just broke — Warner Brothers, which holds the film rights to the DC characters, put screenwriter Will Beall (who penned the forthcoming Gangster Squad) on the job of writing a film version of Justice League last year, a “top-secret hire” which, according to the industry paper, “was more in anticipation of — rather than a reaction to—the box office success of The Avengers.” So the Justice League movie is happening — but filling it with superheroes will be easier said than done. Who should play them? We’ve got some ideas after the jump — and we’d love to hear yours. … Read More

Are These the Year’s Best Magazine Covers?

The American Society of Magazine Editors has spoken: At last night’s National Magazine Awards, Time took home top honors, with titles like Inc., New York, O, The New York Times Magazine, and Saveur winning in their categories. But while those award recipients are getting a lot of press this morning, the ASME gave out a whole other set of laurels that aren’t getting as much attention, for the year’s best magazine covers. After the jump, we look at their selections in an attempt to discern whether these 11 covers really were the most impressive of 2011. Let us know what you think in the comments. … Read More

Incredibly Awful Hand-Painted Bootleg Movie Posters from Russia

We had a lot of fun with the delightfully terrible bootleg covers found in black market-lite shops across the world. Little did we know that Russia elevates unauthorized film marketing to an art form… a hilariously poor art form. Thanks to Adme.Ru, we’ve come across an entire gallery of some of the worst hand-painted posters for advertising small theater screenings. See Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis warped into odd-looking, bulbous humanoids, Terrence Malick’s Tree of Life reduced to a vaguely Constructivist motif of an attempted Brad Pitt, and Harry Potter looking more like Voldemort than Voldemort. Behold! … Read More
