Welcome to The Extras! A daily dose of all the smaller movie related news, clips and just plain cool stuff that you might have missed!
In the recent Weekend Extras I posted a new poster for Will Ferrel’s latest comedy, Casa Me Di Padre. I also went on to mention that I liked the retro looking poster despite me not being the biggest Ferrel fan. Well now there’s a trailer out for the film, and frankly I’m still not too sure whether I’m looking forward to it or not
At the recent Golden Globes, celebrated funny woman Tina Fey pulled off a masterful photobomb on her Globes rival and ex-SNL cast mate Amy Poehler. Animated gifs of the event have been jumping up all over the net it seems
In the spirit of last night’s Golden Globes The Guardian lists the 10 Most Notorious Red Carpet dresses
A new image has appeared online for Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer’s Gangster Squad – the 1940’s/50’s set story about a group of Los Angeles cops that go vigilante in order to fight local crime bosses. You might not be able to tell from that smallish photo, but it has a stellar cast of Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, Michael Pena, Robert Patrick, Anthony Mackie as well as a few not pictured here: Sean Penn, Nick Nolte, Emma Stone and Giovanni Ribisi
Josh Hutcherson spoke to Total Film about his role as Peeta in the upcoming Hunger Games adaptation, as well the dangers of success
Juno scribe, Diablo Cody is developing an adaptation of 90’s teen book and TV series Sweet Valley High. If that wasn’t out of left-field enough for ya, well then she’s also hinting that it might be a musical
There is a new international poster out for Battleship – the classic strategy boardgame turned big budget science fiction spectacle, starring Rihana. And in case you were wondering, no, I couldn’t keep a straight face while reading out that last sentence either
Scribe of Bryan Singer’s upcoming Jack The Giant Killer, Darren Lemke, is about to do a film adaptation of R.L. Stine’s classic Goosebump series
A new image has been released for the Farrelly Bros’ (There’s Something About Mary, Dumb and Dumber, Shallow Hal) new reboot of the classic American comedy show, The 3 Stooges. The Farrelly’s movies have gotten steadily worse through the years, and coupled by what I’ve seen so far, this is definitely not one I’m looking forward to
And finally, I don’t have much love for PETA. A lot has been written about how much harm they actually do, so I won’t bore you with it here. But if there’s one thing I do applaud them for though, it’s this. Getting hot celebrities to take their clothes off. In this case, it’s actress and Queen of the Geeks, Olivia Munn. Damn lucky, bunny.
Now if you don’t mind, I think I’m going to go shed some clothes of my own. Because of the massive heatwave in Cape Town at the moment, obviously. What were you thinking about?
