Novelist Catherine Tramell (Stone) is once again in trouble with the law, and Scotland Yard appoints psychiatrist Dr. Andrew Glass (Morrissey) to evaluate her. Though, like Detective Nick Curran before him, Glass is entranced by Tramell and lured into a seductive game.
Remember how Sharon Stone showed off her hoo-hah while sitting in the first Basic Instinct? Apparently, so did the makers of Basic Instinct 2, since nearly every photo is of her in a chair. Those that aren't have a flashing arrow pointing at her vagina.
The Science of Sleep, written and directed by Michel Gondry, now has images associated with it. There's still nothing from the actual film, but these behind the scenes shots give some glimpses at possible sets and costumes. By the photos, it appears Gondry is using the innovative new shooting technique of standing around looking homeless.
The film stars Gael Garcia Bernal of Y Tu Mama Tambien, the film best known for creating the most awkward two hours I've ever spent with my family.
When I first saw the title I thought this was going to be some weird variation of White Chicks, but it's entirely more complicated than that. The tagline for the movie describes the plot as: Duke wants Olivia who likes Sebastian who is really Viola whose brother is dating Monique so she hates Olivia who's with Duke to make Sebastian jealous who is really Viola who's crushing on Duke who thinks she's a guy.
The only thing you need to know is that the above image is actually Amanda Bynes. I think my brain just imploded.
Avi Arad has declared to Ain't It Cool News that Bryce Howard, the up-and-coming daughter of Opie, will be playing the role of Gwen Stacy in Spider-man 3. Though she has naturally red hair, as Mary Jane is meant to, Arad confirmed, "Of course she will be blonde..."
I'm weary of this last claim. A mail-order-bride service I once used said the same thing, and guess who wasn't blonde? Or foreign, for that matter. Also, not a woman. It was just a strange, red-haired man down-the-street who wanted to marry me for some reason.
In a recent interview, Todd McFarlane dropped some choice gems about his upcoming projects. As producer on David Fincher's Torso, he would like to see Matt Damon or Leonardo DiCaprio take the role of Eliot Ness, saying they're young enough and flamboyant enough. Additionally, McFarlane is working on the script to another Spawn movie that he would fund and direct himself.
I won't say I'm not excited about another Spawn movie, but I will say I'm more excited about today's Marmaduke comic. I won't argue about DiCaprio being flamboyant, though.
Uwe Boll's official site has a 90 second teaser trailer for his upcoming In The Name Of The King: A Dungeon Siege Tale. And so begins another video game franchise that Uwe Boll will drive directly into the landfill. What really pisses me off about this one is that he actually got Jason Statham signed on. I couldn't care less about the other movies he's made, but now he's actually risking the reputation of an actor I care about. Statham isn't exactly Tom Hanks, but if you've seen any of The Transporter movies or Snatch, you know why he's stolen my heart. And why I want to make sweet, furious love to his ass-kicking abilities. Wait, did I just say I want to make sweet, furious love to his ass? That can't be good.
