Nothing is officially greenlit yet, but sources are saying that Warner Brothers is still planning to continue on with their Green Lantern franchise even though the movie hasn’t quite lived up to the massive amounts of money put into making and marketing it.
The DC Comics superhero flick, which stars Ryan Reynolds in the lead, cost WB around $200 million to make, and so far has only made $118 million worldwide in two weeks of release. Adding salt to the wound, the price tag doesn’t even include said marketing fees, which are reportedly some of the highest ever paid to promote a movie.
We haven’t seen a whole lot of Billy Crystal lately, and this is a very depressing thing for anyone who’s known and loved his movies over the years.
The legendary entertainer and best Academy Awards host of all-time has been staying under the radar for the most part and has only done a few things since 2002, but recently he came out of hiding to re-team with director Rob Reiner and pitch their case for a sequel to his much-loved romantic comedy, When Harry Met Sally.
As Hollywood tends to work these days, however, the executives who hear the pitch decide they want to make just a tiny little change to their pitch. The resulting movie is too good to spoil, so you must click on over to the other side to check it out. The hilarious parody of Hollywood’s lack of originality is littered with great cameos and you shan’t regret watching it, this I promise you.
Remember when it was outrageous to go to a movie theater because a $7-$10 admission ticket paired with an $8 tub of popcorn and a $6 soda for just one person was breaking banks nation wide? You haven’t seen anything yet.
The Wall Street Journal is reporting that multiple movie theaters in New York City — where prices have consistently remained highest — is charging a nice round $20 fee to see Shrek Forever After in their 3D IMAX theaters. That’s right — if you plan on taking your family of four out for a night to see the kids’ beloved Shrek, Donkey, Fiona, and Puss in Boots, it will easily run you more than $100 if you add a snack or liquid refreshment.
If this catches on, it could mean that theaters everywhere could be charging as much as it costs us to BUY & OWN the movie on Blu-ray or DVD just to see the flick one time, one sunny afternoon.
As many of you know, on April 20th a massive oil well in the Gulf of Mexico ruptured causing an explosion on BP’s Deepwater Horizon drilling platform, leading to the devastating leakage of millions of gallons of oil on a daily basis. The initial explosion caused the death of eleven workers on the rig, and the oil spill has killed countless animals and other living creatures.
Since this catastrophe has unfolded, experts of all levels and areas have been working desperately to try and figure out a way to not only contain the relentless gushing of oil into the waters, but also a way to clean up the oil that pollutes the water already.
At first, the best idea that they could come up with was to throw a box over the leak and suck up all of the oil…which did not go very well. After that, it was thought that some sort of sponge or absorption device would be the best bet. Now, the LA Times is reporting that the very best option might just lie in the hands of none other than actor Kevin Costner.

We all know the story: Godzilla is one of the icons of monster movie history, and his many Japanese films are still popular to this very day. Our own silly Hollywood attempted to make a new re-imagined version of the giant lizard-beast back in 1998, and as you might be aware, it is still to this day the victim of many, many jokes.
To wash the slate clean and try and prove it can be done, Legendary Pictures has announced that they have partnered up with Japan’s Toho Company to produce another American Godzilla film. This comes as no major shock; back in August, Bloody-Disgusting had heard whispers of this very news being in the beginning stages of becoming a reality. Now we have confirmation, and Legendary hopes to find a director and get moving on the project relatively soon with plans for a release in 2012 currently set.
