Celebrific Screen Scene, May 21, 2010

There aren’t lot of new films opening this week, possibly because it’s hard to compete with blockbusters like Iron Man 2, Robin Hood, and others. IMDB lists four new relases, and get more details from their profile pages, which I’ve linked to from each movie’s title.

New Releases

  • Shrek Forever After. Voices: Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz, Eddie Murphy. Directed by Mike Mitchell. This might be one for the family. This fourth Shrek animated film is said to be the final one in the series, but there’ll be a Puss in Boots spin-off. For me, the first one was fun, but I had no interest after the second. At this point, I think they’re beating a dead horse. Or in this case, donkey? Oh and if you’re planning to take the family to see this, be warned that adults will be charged as much as $20 per ticket for the IMAX 3D version.
  • MacGruber. Will Forte, Kristen Wiig, Val Kilmer and many others. Directed by Jorma Taccone. This comedy is a spin-off of a series of skits on Saturday Night Live that spoofs the MacGyver adventure TV series that ran from 1985-92. The MacGruber tries to be innovative and ingenious in getting out of difficult and dangerous situations, but is usually either too dumb or too distracted to succeed. The SNL skits always end with the building MacGruber is in blowing up. Not sure how this show will translate to film, and personally it’s my least favorite SNL skit, but I’d go see it for Val Kilmer as the villian Dieter Von Cunth, or the very versatile Kristen Wiig, who is one several SNL cast members or alumni that are in the movie.
  • Holy Rollers [LA/NY]. Jesse Eisenberg, Justin Bartha, Danny A. Abeckkaser. Directed by Kevin Asch.
  • Solitary Man [limited]. Michael Douglas, Susan Sarandon, Jesse Eisenberg. Directed by Brian Koppleman and David Levien.

Also Playing

Still in theaters are recent releases Iron Man 2, Robin Hood, Letters to Juliet, Just Wright, How to Train Your Dragon (animated), A Nightmare on Elm Street, Date Night, The Backup Plan, Furry Vengeance, Clash of the Titans, and others.

Upcoming Movies/ Roles

  • Frank Marshall will direct The Hades Factor, based on a Robert-Ludlum inspired novel similar to the ‘Bourne’ books and movies. [Pajiba]
  • James Franco will star in a prequel to the Planet of the Apes series, Rise of the Apes, which is opens Jun 24, 2011. [Deadline, E! Online]
  • Matthew Vaughn will direct X-Men: First Class [Jun 3, 2011].
  • Phll Alden Robinson will script an untitled J.J. Abrams project, based on a Wired magazine article about the world’s biggest diamond heist. Robinson wrote and directed Field of Dreams. [Heat Vision]
  • Ellen Page will star in Freeheld, based on the Oscar-winning documentary of the same name. [Hollywood Reporter]
  • Drew Barrymore will follow up her directorial debut of Whip It by directing Surrender Dorothy, a Wizard of Oz sequel. [Pajiba]
  • There might be two versions of 20,000 Leagues under the sea. One from Disney and the other from Fox.

Screen Scene Tidbits

  • Paul Greengrass is focusing on Treasure Island and will not direct the 3D remake of Fantastic Voyage. [Deadline]
  • The cast of the upcoming Twilight: Breaking Dawn vampire flick, based on the book series, asked for between $1.5-4M each but will get up to $1.25M. [Deadline, THR Esq]
  • If you saw the first Sex and the City film, you know how full of product placement it was, as well as that Carrie Bradshaw uses a Mac computer. Not this time. In the second SatC movie, out May 27th, she’ll be using an HP laptop because of a partnership deal with Hewlett-Packard. [PopEater, CeleBitchy]

Enjoy your movie-watching weekend.


An Army of Vampires

A significant number of die-hard Twilight fans nearly died on Friday—and it isn’t because real-life vampires attacked them. Oh, c’mon! You know vampires don’t really exist, right?

The trailer of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse officially premiered on Friday on Oprah. Dakota Fanning, who plays the evil vampire Jane in the movie, introduced the trailer on the show via Skype. She also discussed how excited she was about her role.

“Jane is just such a great character to play,” the 16-year-old said. “She’s kind of evil and the costumes are amazing and the makeup was amazing. To get to have the blood-red eyes was so cool and something I was really looking forward to.”

Check out the official trailer below.

I’ve said before, and I’ll say it again. I’m with Team Wolf! Taylor Lautner looks hotter this time around. The CGI, costumes, and makeup also look more realistic compared to the first Twilight movie; I remember I kept giggling whenever Dr. Cullen would enter a scene with his white cake-y foundation.

June 30 is the date, Twi-hard fans!


Stephenie Meyer’s Non-Vampire Movie

In case you didn’t know, the famous Twilight novelist has written a book outside of the cult vampire series. After the success of the Twilight saga, Stephenie Meyer wrote a science fiction book called The Host, and it isn’t about bloodsuckers and werewolves.

Released in 2008, The Host actually did well in sales, though not as phenomenal as the Twilight series.

Unfortunately, I am not a fan of Stephenie Meyer’s superfluous and adjective-bombarded writing, especially after seeing unedited chapters of her books leaked online. No, I did not bother picking up The Host. Similar to Invasion of The Body Snatchers, Meyer’s story is about aliens that have taken over the minds and bodies of humans, with an injection of love themes to tickle your fancy.

Please don’t kill me, Twi-hard fans. I did appreciate the storyline of the Twilight series. I did swoon over Jacob Black. I’m just not fond of her writing style, that’s all.

Back to The Host. They decided to make a movie version of the book, and Gattaca writer/director Andrew Niccol is taking the lead. Who do you think should play the lead roles? The casting has yet to begin, so your guess is as good as mine. According to reports, if everything goes according to plan, they will start filming in 2011.

Do you think the movie version of The Host will be as big as the Twilight series?


So that vampire dude, Robert Pattinson, was being interviewed by none other than Ryan Seacrest, right? When Seacrest asked what’s up with Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, the actor’s publicist lost it and pulled his client out of the chair. Yeah, Pattinson left. Wow…bad choice of questions, Seacrest!

Twilight Stars A Couple

It’s official – well, as official as it can be for now, I guess. Robert Pattinson and Kristern Stewart are a couple. That’s what the director of Twilight, Catherine Hardwicke tells the world. I guess we just have to hear it from the couple, right?


Kristen Stewart: Being Bella Is Not A Ball

Kristen Stewart gained worldwide fame for playing the character of Bella in Twilight. You’d think she loved everything that came with it. The actress says though, that she misses the normalcy of life. Well, young lady, everything has its price.


Twilight’s Dishy Edward Mimicks His Fans

The dreamiest vampire of all, Robert Pattinson recently told the press how in spite of his huge success since Twilight, the hunky 22-year-old still has no Bella in real life. He even impersonated his adoring fans by mimicking in falsetto “I’m such a huge fan!”.

In my opinion, he was a lot cuter as Cedric Diggory sans all of Edward Cullen‘s pancake makeup.


Twilight’s Bella To Play Joan Jett

Kristen Stewart, the actress who played the angsty vampire-loving teen Bella in the movieTwilight (yes, the book was a LOT better) is set to play rocker Joan Jett in her upcoming biopic.

According to the Hollywood Reporter:

“The film, The Runaways, which will depict the 1970s all-girl band’s meteoric rise and fall, is being executive-produced by the 50-year-old singer – best known for the hit “I Love Rock ‘N’ Roll,”
