Forest Whitaker is Pissed at the Weinsteins

Written by , Posted in General

Forest Whitaker’s new film, ‘Hurricane Season,’ has gone direct to video, and he is calling it a “travesty.”  He obviously expected a theatrical release, given that there were many big names in the film, and Whitaker thinks it has a great story.  The Weinsteins’ claim that the film didn’t test well, but something tells me this really has to do with the Weinstein Co.’s financial problems.

Matt Damon Says a New Bourne Movie Unlikely

Written by , Posted in General

At the premiere of his new film, ‘Green Zone’ Paul Greengrass said that he is unlikely to direct a new Bourne film, as he has nothing else to contribute to the franchise.  Greengrass directed both ‘The Bourne Ultimatum’ and ‘Green Zone,’ and Damon has said that he would not do another Bourne film without him.  This would not be the first time that rumors of a sequel have been squashed.  After ‘The Bourne Supremacy,’ Damon said that ‘The Bourne Ultimatum’ would not work, because the original novel was too dated.  Let’s keep our fingers crossed that this is just Damon and Greengrass gratuitously babbling to the press.  See pictures from the ‘Green Zone’ premiere below.

Written by , Posted in General

Billy Joel has dropped out of his tour with Elton John. The tour was supposed to run until March 11, but Joel has left early, claiming that he wants to take the year off. Because of its success, it was speculated that Joel and John would extend it beyond March 11, but now that won’t happen. Thus far, it has already grossed around 88 million dollars. John said that although he is disappointed, he understands Joel’s decision. Prior to this tour, the last time Joel and John toured together was 2003. Hopefully they will tour again in the near future.

I usually don’t care about twitter but I will make an exception for this. Conan O’Brien just started a twitter account. It’s been about a day, and he already has around 350,000 followers. Go CoCo!! Here are his two tweets so far:

“Today I interviewed a squirrel in my backyard and then threw to commercial. Somebody help me”

“This morning I watched Remington Steele while eating Sugar Smacks out of a salad bowl. I was naked.

Hurt Locker Producer Caught Campaigning for Oscar Votes

Written by , Posted in General

It’s no secret that this kind of thing happens, but it’s important to apologize when you’re caught. An email was recently leaked, which revealed a producer for The Hurt Locker asking everyone to vote for his film. He also criticized Avatar in the email. The problem? It violates Academy rules, and it is not in the friendly spirit of celebrating cinema. It simply is not good sportsmanship. Instead, you must pretend that you don’t care at all whether you win or lose.
