Check Out New "Iron Man 2" Poster! 
It's sleek and interesting showing a giant explosion in the middle, featuring cast members Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Don Cheadle, Gwyneth Paltrow, and a super-itsy-bitsy unidentifiable Mickey Rourke as Ivan Vanko/Whiplash. But it looks a tad generic don't you think?

Angela Bassett Joins "Green Lantern" Cast 


Judging from the picture, is Angela Bassett going to wear a fat suit to play the character of Dr. Amanda Waller? In all of the character's comic book incarnations, she's always been portrayed as a heavy set woman, so I'm just wondering, or will director Martin Campbell make the Waller character svelte and slinky like Bassett? Either or, the addition of the actress to the "Green Lantern" cast is great news!

In the DC Comics mythology, Waller is a government agent who oversees the Suicide Squad, a group of captured super villains who perform tasks in exchange for freedom. So Waller is sorta like a prison warden :happy

I suspect Campbell and company will introduce Waller's character in the film, and perhaps, develop her mythology and her relationship with the Suicide Squad in later "Green Lantern" sequels, because you know, there will be sequels, right?

Bassett joins cast members Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Peter Sarsgaard, and Tim Robbins in New Orleans where "Green Lantern" is currently being filmed.

From "Ratatouille" to "Mission: Impossible IV?" Brad Bird in Talks to Direct Tom Cruise 


Brad Bird may soon jump into live action! The director of "The Iron Giant," "The Incredibles," and "Ratatouille," is one of the few directors being considered for "Mission: Impossible IV" according to The Hollywood Reporter.

This is exciting! I've always regarded Bird as a great storyteller who knows how to mix action and emotion perfectly!

Tom Cruise and producer J.J. Abrams are busy looking for the perfect director for the fourth installment. Cruise will reprise his role as secret agent Ethan Hunt for the Paramount film set to open May 27, 2011. Production is set to begin this summer.

The other contenders to direct are "Zombieland's" Ruben Fleischer, and Edgar Wright ("Hot Fuzz").

If Bird is picked, "M:I-4" will be his first live-action film. He has been developing "1906" (about the 1906 San Francisco earthquake) as his possible live-action debut but according to THR, it is rumored to be stalled because of budgetary reasons. (My Disney source is still adamant in telling me that Bird is the creative force behind "Maleficent" -- the retelling of Sleeping Beauty from the evil queen's point of view that has Angelina Jolie being mentioned as a possible star)

The plot for "M:I-4" is being kept in tight wraps but Abrams worked on the story with screenwriters Andre Nemec and Josh Appelbaum.

"Greenberg" Movie Review! How Many Kisses Does Ben Stiller Get? 


I’ve always believed that Ben Stiller has the making of a great dramatic actor. The star has shown dramatic flair in films like “Your Friends and Neighbors” and “Permanent Midnight.”


(Click to see my exclusive interviews with Ben Stiller, Greta Gerwig, and Rhys Ifans)

Stiller, in his comedic films, often portrayed bruised characters for laughs. In “Greenberg,” the actor plays yet another battered down character, only this time, his performance is at once funny, touching, and poignant. Read More...
