Jennifer's Body Marketing Begins

Lets face it ever since the naked Megan Fox pictures from the set of Jennifer’s Body were leaked, it became more her movie rather than Oscar winner Diablo Cody (See Naked Here). You can see the poster for the film below.

“A newly possessed cheerleader turns into a killer who specializes in offing her male classmates. Can her best friend put an end to the horror?”

Harry Potter 6 - Harry Potter and the Half blood Prince Trailer released

When it comes to the sixth installment of one of the most successful series in movie history, the release of its trailer is almost as exciting as that of the film itself.

Due out Nov. 21, "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" teases movie screens this Friday, before showings of "The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor."

Voldemort is played by Ralph Fiennes, and his 11-year-old incarnation is played by 10-year-old Hero Fiennes-Tiffin, the actor's nephew. Not only does he bear a resemblance to the grown-up Voldemort, but he also has the requisite intensity, Yates says.

"His mother (Martha Fiennes) is a film director, and Hero was very focused and disciplined," Yates says. "The fact that he's related to Ralph wasn't the primary reason for choosing him. It was an advantage that he looked very similar to Ralph. Of course that was useful. But primarily I went for Hero because of this wonderful haunted quality that seemed to bring Tom Riddle alive on-screen for us."

Yates stressed how hard it can be for very young actors to find the necessary dark place to play such a creepy character.

"But even though he's the nicest child you'd ever want to meet, sweet-natured and pleasant, he got the corners and dark moods and odd spirit of the character."

Audiences also will meet a teenage Voldemort, still known as Tom Riddle. He's played by Frank Dillane. The character made an appearance in the second Potter film, Chamber of Secrets, played by a different actor.

"Even at a very young age, Tom Riddle shows tendencies toward cruelty and maliciousness," Yates says. "And it's a very unsettling thing to see."

Miss Potter - Starring Rene Zellweger

“It felt right
filming in the Lake District. It always makes it

easier to feel a character’s experience when you are

surrounded by things you know were beloved to them”


  RenĂ©e Zellweger


Since today is Beatrix Potter's Birthday what better way to celebrate the life o this amazing woman than a tale about Beatrix Potter. The beautiful Rene Zellweger stars in this enchanting tale of the Enchantress herself. Directed by CHRIS NOONAN (Babe) and starring Oscar-winning RENEE ZELLWEGER (Cold Mountain, Bridget Jones’ Diary) and EWAN McGREGOR (Star Wars, Moulin Rouge!), MISS POTTER is an inspirational love story that follows Beatrix Potter's rise to being the most successful classic children’s author of all time.

Despite delighting generations of children with her books, Beatrix Potter kept her own story locked carefully away. Her first book, The Tale of Peter Rabbit, was a publishing phenomenon and led to a magical love affair with her publisher Norman Warne (Ewan McGregor).

MISS POTTER is undoubtedly the most enchanting tale of all.

Megan fox in Jennifers Body "It's all about the sex"

Megan Fox recently talked about her role in Jennifers Body and made it pretty clear she is still using her sex to sell her movies. She tells them that in the movie;

"I eat and seduce everyone. There's a lot of kissing everyone – boys and girls. All kinds of craziness."

So it seems that Jennifers Body is going to build its fan base not on the basis of being a good horror flick but rather on the basis of its girl on girl lesbian vampire action. I am totally going to work on feigning shock. Everytime I hear Jennifer talk about a project it always leads its way somehow to sexuality. She is building a brand for herself but unfortunately once she turns 30 it wont help her career.

Hopefully the film offers more then just visual eye candy. As attractive as Megan Fox is and as much as sex can help sell a movie at the end of the day if the movie is no good it wont get traction or go anywhere. Megan did a pretty good job in Transformers lets hope it translates to Jennifers Body.

How to Lose Friends and Alienate People Trailer

Simon Pegg has proven he's an amazing talent in the work he's done with his buddy Edgar Wright, from the hilarious (and soon to be on DVD) British sitcom Spaced to zombie movie Shaun of the Dead. But when he's stepped out with other directors, it hasn't been pretty-- if you managed to avoid Run, Fat Boy, Run, I applaud your smarts.

So it's hard to know what to think about this new trailer for How to Lose Friends and Alienate People, posted by Moviefone. It's the story of a guy who goes to work for a fancy lifestyle magazine in New York, and apparently makes an idiot of himself. It's either not so bad a job, because he works for the Dude, or a terrible job, because he works for Obadiah Stane-- depending on which Jeff Bridges role you prefer. Oh, and Kirsten Dunst is in there too, looking pretty cute actually and of course who could forget the beautiful Megan Fox.

Pegg has played a doofus in most of his roles thus far, but he's usually been a clever doofus. If this whole movie consists of nothing but pratfalls and cringe-inducing humor, it might not do any favors for his American career. Check it out below and see if this makes you like Simon Pegg any more.

Megan Fox Told to Gain Weight for Transformers 2

Megan Fox is still one of the slimmest starlets in Tinseltown, but the ubersexy screen siren was sporting a few more much-needed curves beneath her “Star Wars” T-shirt and jeans at the FOX Television Critics Association party in Santa Monica, Calif., on Monday night.

Fox was forced to gain 10 pounds in three weeks for her role in the second “Transformers” movie following a dramatic and dangerous weight loss for her last film, “Jennifer’s Body."

“I should have toned up for 'Transformers' but I’m really lazy. I had to put on weight,” she told Pop Tarts. “I’d lost a lot of weight and got really scrawny, but I was told I had to put on size for 'Transformers' because Michael [Bay, the director] doesn’t like skinny girls.”

But what dangerous dieting regime did Megan use to pop the pounds in the first place?

“I just stopped eating,” she said. “I don’t eat very healthy anyway — I have a serious sugar tooth, so now I eat red-velvet cake before I go to bed every night, and if you eat meals later, you’ll put on weight faster, so I had dinner at 10 p.m.”

The filming for “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” kicked off just last month, and while the 22-year-old was under strict orders not to say too much, it seems like there will be a few disappointed male admirers.

“There are no big love scenes,” Fox said. “At this point Shi and I have been dating for two years so we’re at the bickering stage, like an old married couple.”

Angelina Jolie uses the death of her Mother as Muse for Assassin Movie

Angelina Jolie said she decided to take a role as an assassin in the action movie ‘Wanted’ to help her get over the death of her mother. The actress, who is currently in a French hospital awaiting the birth of twins, admits that she took the role to help keep her mind off of her mom, Marchline Bertrand who died of ovarian cancer in February 2007.

“My mother had just passed away and I wanted to do something physical to get it out of my head for a while,” Jolie says. “I felt I was going into a very dark place and I wasn’t capable of getting up in the morning, so I signed up for something that would force me to be active.”

Meanwhile, Jolie is due to give birth to her fifth and sixth children with partner Brad Pitt. The 33-year-old checked into a French hospital last week for “surveillance” before the arrival of the twins. She and Pitt already have a biological daughter and three adopted children.
