Jennifer Lawrence in Talks for Darren Aronofsky Indie


Still maintaining her reputation for being the best thing to emerge from The Bill Engvall Show, Jennifer Lawrence has found yet another big-name director to work with. According to Variety, she's in talks to star in an untitled indie project Darren Aronofsky is currently putting together as his next feature. That's all we know about the film right now, but already it's a pretty good start, right? What, you got something better, Engvall?

Owen Wilson Apparently Whispers in Every Film, and Here's the Proof of That


No one tell Owen Wilson about this supercut. We want to keep him thinking that only his fellow Wilson brothers can hear the whispered parts.

Donald Trump To Host Exceptionally Orange 'Saturday Night Live'


Donald Trump is going to bring his hilarious impression of American politics to Saturday Night Live. Despite NBC vocally ending their business relationship with Trump due to his awful statements about immigrants, the network is apparently going to ease up on that for a night next month when the woefully front-running presidential candidate will host SNL. This won't be his first time, though. Just as Trump for some reason already hosted his own quickly forgotten presidential bid, he likewise for some reason already hosted a quickly forgotten SNL back in April, 2004. Tune in November 7 to find out if he'll possibly let the makeup team put a wig over his delicate head art.

'The Notebook' Director To Take on 'Road House' Remake


Having already tackled matters of the heart and heartbreak, the director of The Notebook is now moving on to matters of the throat and throat-rips. According to THR, director Nick Cassavetes has signed on to direct MGM's planned remake of Road House, the 1989 cult classic in which Patrick Swayze literally tears a dude's throat out of his neck. Fighter-turned-actor Ronda Rousey is already attached to star in the film, taking on Swayze's role as the coolest bouncer ever. Cassavetes is also attached to write the film, so someone better let him know about the counterintuitive relationship between pain and hurting...

70mm 'Hateful Eight' Screenings Add Six Minutes, Overture, Intermission


Making the multiplex version of Hateful Eight feel horribly inadequate, Quentin Tarantino has revealed that the 70mm roadshow version of the film is not just larger but also lasts longer.

To back up a second, Tarantino's Hateful Eight is being released in two formats: a standard, digitally-projected version and an Ultra Panavision version that will be shown in just 100 theaters that have been outfitted with projectors that can handle the expansive 70mm format. The latter version hits those specially-equipped theaters first, on December 25, and then the film will roll out nationwide January 8.

That has all long been established, but now Tarantino has revealed that the 70mm version will also be a different, longer, more contemplative experience viewers can forever obnoxiously brag about. "Oh, are you watching Hateful Eight on HBO? Wow, I couldn't imagine enjoying that version..."

New 'X-Files' Promo Goes Stylized


The truth is still out there! And the truth is that The X-Files was still off the air when people were doing all those Saul Bass-inspired, minimalist title treatments, so since this is the soonest such titles could be made for that show, everyone at Fox would appreciate it if we'd just let them have this one. Fair enough, Fox, but you're really pushing it. You already did the retro, '90s-style opening credits, after all.

Bryan Cranston To Join Usual Suspects in Wes Anderson's Stop-Motion Dog Movie


It seems Wes Anderson has added an impressive new voice to his deadpan chorus. According to Nerdist, Jeff Goldblum has revealed that Bryan Cranston will join Bob Balaban, Edward Norton, and himself in the stop-motion dog movie Anderson was recently revealed to be working on. Adding credence and another actor to that news, back in June Page Six noted that Anderson, Cranston, Norton, and, of course, Bill Murray were sighted sharing a late lunch to presumably talk about this project.

Goldblum also added that the new film is in some way "Japanese-inspired." Given Anderson's long history of canine abuse, Cranston the Dog should probably just steer clear of any stop-motion tentacles.
