Iron Man 2 update: Justin Theroux may write, Favreau still not official

Although Variety states that Renaissance man Justin Theroux “will pen” the sequel to Iron Man — it chases the story with the news that “Marvel Studios… isn’t being quick to confirm any deals around the project, saying it doesn’t comment on rumors,” so it’s not necessarily a lock. Although best known for his acting from […]

Trailer Watch: Tropic Thunder, Rain of Madness, Hell Ride, Beautiful Losers

A pretty fuckin’ funny trailer for a mock documentary called Rain of Madness, about the making of the Tropic Thunder movie within a movie, clearing riffing on the Apocalypse Now doc Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker’s Apocalypse, has gone up at Apple. No definite word on whether they’re actually making this “making of” or where […]

Trailer Watch: Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Undead, Tropic Thunder full trailer, Children of Huang Shi (updated) has the exclusive trailer for the upcoming Shakespearean vampire riff, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Undead. (No real connection to Tom Stoppard’s Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, although apparently he’s cool with the title lift.) The trailer is very funny, the soundtrack by Sean Lennon sounds wonderfully catchy, and there are some pretty sharp visuals […]

CONTROVERSY! Robert Downey, Jr., wears crackaface in Tropic Thunder

<satire>You’ll never guess who that cracker is on the left! It’s Robert Downey, Jr.! That’s right, the brown-haired, brown-eyed man himself is wearing make-up to play a blonde-haired, blue-eyed man in Ben Stiller’s upcoming Tropic Thunder. Who’s offended? As a half-Filipino, half-white person, I am offended. Why couldn’t they hire someone from the Master Race […]

Trailer Watch: Tropic Thunder teaser, Foot Fist Way; also, there are idiots on the internet

The official website for Ben Stiller’s Tropic Thunder has added a 30-second teaser to the film. There’s not much to comment on in it, but the tagline ("Shit Blows Up") is pretty damn funny.

Star Trek pushed forward to May 2009

Variety reports that J.J. Abrams’s Star Trek reboot has been pushed forward until May 8, 2009, as part of a reshuffling of its schedule. The article mentions that "studio insiders" believe Trek stands to make more money in May than December, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it were partly due to the writers strike, […]
