New Nacho Libre Trailer


JoBlo got their hands on an exclusive trailer for Nacho Libre, the newest from Napoleon Dynamite director Jared Hess, Jack Black, and School of Rock writer Mike White. There's not much new footage, but something about it seems more "on" this time. Still, something's stopping me from getting too excited about this one. I try to remember, now matter how good it may look, even Hitler probably seemed pretty appealing at first, and look what he became. You wouldn't trust a re-animated Hitler, would you? After that whole Holocaust fiasco? If you're like me, the answer is a resounding, "probably not."

I Am a Sex Addict Trailer


I hadn't heard of I Am a Sex Addict until seeing the trailer, but it looks pretty great. Here's the description:

Autobiographical filmmaker Caveh Zahedi has made a cult career of his unabashed willingness to be vulnerable on camera. I Am a Sex Addict, a comic reconstruction of his ten-year struggle with sex addiction, is one of his most ambitious, hilarious confessions yet.

Hopefully, in addition to providing some laughs, this movie will give others, possibly even some women, the courage to admit they have a sex addiction. Then, those women should send me their addresses, a few Polaroids, and an availability schedule. Or at least send me some pornography. Anyone.


Sharon Stone Directing Basic Instinct 3?

sharon-stone-bi3.jpgAfter Basic Instinct 2 opened at 10th, a spot below The Shaggy Dog, I can't imagine anyone would possibly fund another. But my current favorite crazy, Sharon Stone, is sure hoping so. The nutcase has said that there's already a script, and she's set to direct:

There's a script for the next part of the story - but I would like to direct it rather than star in it. It will be filmed in the UK again as the setting is more intense and gritty.

I guess it's like they say, "if you can't convince them to constantly show your open, wating vagina, just do it yourself, so you can show all the sweet old lady hoo-hah you want."


The Da Vinci Code Poster


A new one-sheet for Ron Howard's adaptation of The Da Vinci Code has been released, showing off stars Tom Hanks and Audrey Tautou. I hope you like it, because if you ever somehow become a Terminator, everything will look like this.


Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby Poster


Columbia Pictures has shown the new poster for the August 4 release of Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby. With Adam McKay and Will Ferrell, the minds behind Anchorman involved, along with the addition of John C. Reilly and Sacha Baron Cohen, this is the NASCAR film I'll be looking forward to this summer. Unless another one comes out that exposes how racers are coating their tires with ground-up babies for extra speed, because someone needs to crack NASCAR's dirty little secret.


X-Men: The Last Stand Television Spots


The handsome Latinos at Latino Review have scored the three new television spots for X-Men 3, for those who forgot to tape American Idol, House M.D. and ESPN (in general). After watching all three, I've created what I believe will be the definitive plot summary of the third film:

Magneto goes to the woods.
A bridge falls.
Angel shows off how he has wings.
The X-Men stand in a row.
Juggernaut runs through a wall.
Some mutants make out.
Something explodes while Wolverine smokes.

I'm wondering how many times they're going to show that shot of Wolverine smoking with the explosion behind him. Probably until I stop reacting with, "Motherfucker! Did everyone see that sweet explosion? That shit was blowing up! And Wolverine was still all cool-like, just chillin' with a cigar! He knows what's up. That shit is tiiiiiiight." Then I make sound effects of explosions and his claws coming out for the rest of the night.
