golden globes

The Golden Globe nominations have been announced, and they’re all tedious and wrong and stupid, as per yuuzh.

Click here for the ‘splodey and slo-mo heavy Thor trailer. I know this is probably not the intended reaction, but all I got out of this trailer was “Yay! Agent Coulson!!”

why helloooo

Boo. My favorite champion of personal assistants everywhere, Pepper Potts, will not be in The Avengers. There probably wasn’t room for her fabulous wardrobe on set. Continue reading

Y’all, I totally almost forgot about NDTD today! It’s not like I haven’t been doing this for the past 84 weeks or so. Someone’s got turkey brain! I’m gonna blow through this before I start daydreaming about broccoli cheese rice casserole again.

Mike White, who penned School of Rock, has been tapped to direct Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Having just finished the audiobook of P&P today (for the 400th time, what.), I’m unusually interested in this news despite Natalie Portman’s dropping out. I suppose ScarJo will suffice.

walking dead

Speaking of zombies, we probs have a full year to wait before S2 of The Walking Dead. Check out the full convo of my Walking Dead reviews with Henri and Devin on Badass Digest! Continue reading

betty brant

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! Continue reading

Extra! Extra! Marla's got a lot of irons in a lot of fires!

And this will therefore be a shorty edition of NDTD. Let’s hop to!

Scream

There’s a trailer up for Scream 4, and nothing surprising whatsoever happens in it!

men in black

Dramz on the set of Men in Black 3, which may feature Betty White! She’s probably the troublemaker on set. No wait, it’s Will Smith’s giant ego.

alien

Damon Lindelof’s magic script apparently rescued Ridley Scott’s trubs-riddled Alien prequel, thereby perhaps scoring Natalie Portman as the lead. Allegedly. Continue reading

Extra! Extra! News and Stuff and Things!

  Welcome to News Day Tuesday! Hot off the presses, from their blogs to my blog to you!
piranha 

Eli Roth talks about the 3D technology for Piranha. We’ll see if it lives up to the eyeball-melting visuals of Step Up 3D! I have no doubt that it will live up to the story, in that it will not have one.  

i spit on your grave

 You can see the trailer for the remake of I Spit On Your Grave here. Yeah, it looks pretty cool, but mostly I’m excited about seeing if it holds up in Remake v. Original. Okay, I’m also excited that it’s pulled a no-rating for a theatrical release.  

zombieland poster 

Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer has a secret genre project in the works! That sounds so exciting! Read my review of Zombieland here.   Continue reading
