It’s News Day Tuesday!

Zooey Deschanel is being considered as Daily Bugle secretary Betty Brant in the upcoming Spider-Man reboot, the role delightfully captured by Elizabeth Banks in that super-old black and white version that came out a hundred years ago. Or, like, 5 minutes ago, what have you. Andrew Garfield (as Spidey) and Emma Stone (as Gwen Stacy) will co-star.

Wes Anderson’s newest opus, Moon Rise Kingdom, will boast a giant amazing ensemb cast as per yuuzh. Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, Bill Murray, Edward Norton and Bruce Willis are all said to star in the upcoming noir thriller. Sweet!


Chris Nolan has a bevy of lovely ladies fighting over a couple of choice roles in his upcoming Dark Knight Rises, which, by the by, will not be 3D. Rachel Weisz, Keira Knightley, Blake Lively, Natalie Portman, Naomi Watts and Anne Hathaway are all said to be up for the two leads, one a love interest and one a villain. Possible villainesses are debated here.

Uhm, obviously. Lady Gaga will be in the new Muppets movie.


Even though I still cannot wrap my mind around the fact that this is not an elaborate internet hoax, the Darren Aronofsky sequel to X-Men Origins: Wolverine (reviewed here) is evidently serious business. Frequent Aronofsky collaborator Matthew Libatique will do the cinematography.

You can check out a gallery of stills from the Wes Craven/Kevin Williamson Scream 4. Or Scre4m, if you will. The weirdest thing just happened to me while I was looking at the totally vanilla pics—I got excited? To see this movie? A fourth installation in an already-tepid series? I think my snark muscle’s sprained.

my sucky teen romance

Emily Hagin, teenage director of horror flicks and MY HERO, has a new movie! The My Sucky Teen Romance trailer is super unsucky.
