The Next Movie of "The Hangover" Director...Oh, There's Also the Inevitable Sequel! 

With the success of "The Hangover," director Todd Phillips is now one busy man! He will next direct "Due Date," another road trip comedy, and then a year later, "The Hangover 2" comes out!

So far, "The Hangover" has surpassed "Wedding Crashers" and is on its way to beat the biggest R-rated comedy, "Beverly Hills Cop."

Zach Galifianakis is set to play one of the two leads in "Due Date" written by Alan R. Cohen and Alan Freedland. According to Variety, "Due Date" is a comedy about fatherhood in which an expectant dad and his unlikely travel companion (Galifianakis) race cross-country in hopes of making it home for the birth of his first child. Phillips called it a “buddy comedy without the buddies.”

The film is set to begin production October 6 and will be released the first weekend of June 2010. Meanwhile, "The Hangover 2" will begin production in October 2010 and will be released Memorial Day weekend of 2011.

Hhhhm, you wanna bet that the sequel will feature the wedding between Stu (Ed Helms) and Jade (Heather Graham)?

Watch My "Bruno" Movie Review! It's Very Gay-Centric! HA! 

I adore Sacha Baron Cohen. He's one of the most politically-astute comedians of his generation. From "Ali G" to "Borat" and now "Bruno," Cohen shines his spotlight on bigotry by using laughter.

I didn't find anything offensive in "Bruno," I thought it was a sharp, funny film, and here's the reason I'm recommending it.

Warner Bros. Wins "Superman" Case! 

Warner Bros. and DC Comics won the suit filed by the heirs of "Superman" co-creator Jerome Siegel. Siegel's family wanted money from WB but the Judge has ruled that they could only get a cut from DC Comics' share.

So does that mean that all the planned "Superman" films (whether via "Justice League" or another standalone "Superman" movie) will move forward as planned?

Stay tuned...

Michael Moore's New Movie is a Love Story! 

Well, not quite a romantic love story, but Michael Moore's new documentary is titled "Capitalism: A Love Story." The film will be about the global economic meltdown. The cause? Our love affair with capitalism.

During the film's announcement, Moore revealed:

"It will be the perfect date movie. It's got it all -- lust, passion, romance and 14,000 jobs being eliminated every day. It's a forbidden love, one that dare not speak its name. Heck, let's just say it: It's capitalism."

"Capitalism: A Love Story" will be released on Oct. 2 by Overture films.

Say what you will about Moore, but I think the man is a creative, astute filmmaker and his documentaries can never be ignored. From "Roger & Me" to "Sicko" and "Fahrenheit 9/11" in between, Moore's documentaries incite emotions, reactions, and perhaps, action.

So yeah, needless to say, I'll be in theaters Oct. 2 to watch "Capitalism: A Love Story."
