Videos for The Odd Life of Timothy Green, The Dark Knight Rises and Gangster Squad, and writer/sequel news for Ghostbusters 3 and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay.
The Odd Life of Timothy Green
The Odd Life of Timothy Green has a new TV spot that continues the feel good nature of the film. I can’t express enough how perfect I think Jennifer Garner is for this role. She’s just a… mom. You know?
AND I WANT HER TO CALL ME DADDY.
The Dark Knight Rises
The Dark Knight Rises has a new TV Spot and poster today. The video covers Bruce Wayne’s current health, which is to say it’s really bad and he should stop being Batman, and the poster is an absolutely outstanding IMAX version of Bane with subtle hints of Batman’s logo on his face/eyes. Cool for shizzle.
Gangster Squad has a new international trailer that tries to explain why America is so awesome to the rest of the world.
Just kidding. The rest of the world is made up of poopie heads. The trailer is actually pretty cool, and I have to say I really like the way Ryan Gosling is approaching being a badass. Rather than try to make himself hyper-masculine, with a deeper voice or… facial hair or something, he’s just playing the role soft, and let’s his actions do the talking.
I went the opposite route. I have big muscles and a tattoo that says “Mommy” on my arm.
It should just say “Mom”?
Dan Aykroyd is gonna just keep on hiring more and more writers until one of them churns out a script good enough to get Bill Murray on board. I swear. I don’t think the studios will make Ghostbusters 3 without him, and Murray is happier just running around on the tarp of his minor league baseball team (yeah, that’s him below, and he owns part of a minor league team because… well, because he can I guess.)
So Etan Cohen has been brought on board to write another draft. Etan wrote Tropic Thunder, which was surprisingly good, and he wrote Men in Black III.
Bill Murray is NEVER going to make this film.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay
You know what’s better than money?
You know who knows that besides me? NOT HOLLYWOOD.
That’s why they’ve decided, in their infinite wisdom, to split the third book of the Hunger Games TRILOGY, into two parts to make a fourth film. Cause HEY, it worked for Harry Potter and we’re milking the shit out of Twilight before rebooting it, why NOT with The Hunger Games?
So there’ll be a Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 and Part 2 now I guess.
