‘Overboard’ Trailer: Anna Faris Uses Amnesia To Teach Eugenio Derbez A Lesson In Humality
  |  @   |  

I never saw the original Overboard, but the romantic comedy centered on a wife named Joanna (Goldie Hawn) suffering from a case of amnesia after falling off her husband’s (Edward Herrmann) yacht. Using this as an opportunity to escape the bonds of marriage, the husband leaves his wife. but Dean (Kurt Russell), a widowed carpenter with four kids who once worked for Joanna, arrives and claims she’s his wife. So she ends up putting the rich life she once knew behind to live a blue collar life.

All the fun and cheesy tropes of learning how to work a regular job fall into play and there are the occasional romantic gestures. So when it was announced that there would be a gender-twist remake starring Anna Faris as the one who takes advantage of a rich playboy’s (Eugenio Derbez) amnesia, you can probably expect more of the same conceits. Check out the full trailer below.

‘The Baytown Disco’ Trailer Reminds Us How Much Fun Southern Crime Can Be
  |  @   |  

The Baytown Disco follows the story of three Southern brothers whose life of crime leads them to a job where they have to play as the good guys. But before you can peg this as some sort of awful direct to DVD flick, take a look at the very awesome trailer here below. It will convince you that The Baytown Disco is the kind of popcorn slam-bang actioner that we’ve been waiting for.

The trailer is filled with eye-popping action, animated title explosions, plenty of foul-mouthed characters, and stripper assassins. Yep stripper assassins. Did I mention that the film stars Billy Bob Thornton as a ruthless mobster and Eva Longoria as a godmother requesting that the brothers bring back her godson from her ex-husband.

Eva Longoria to Visit Avengers Tower?
  |  

A while ago I posited that though she probably wouldn’t acquire her own movie, The Wasp was almost certainly going to appear in The Avengers movie that Marvel is promising. Janet Pym, née, Van Dyne, aka, the Wasp, was a founding member of the Avengers, and Ant-Man’s wife/ex-wife. So we could conceivably see her appear in the Ant-Man movie as well.

Now, thanks to Flawed Hollywood, a photo of Eva Longoria exiting the Marvel Comics offices on Friday, carrying a pile of reading material including an Avengers book, has got me very excited. (Check out the image here at right and click for larger view.)

A quick look at her face and you see Janet Pym immediately. I honestly don’t think they could have picked someone better for the Wasp if they tried.
