Lovelace

Amanda Seyfried‘s covered more genres in the few of years than some actors do in their entire careers. She’s done an indie drama (The End of Love), a thriller (Gone), a musical (Les Misérables), a romcom (The Big Wedding), a kids’ cartoon (Epic), and now, she’s gonna do porn. Er, that is, a movie about porn.

Jeffrey Friedman and Rob Epstein‘s Lovelace chronicles the story of Linda Boreman, who became an international sensation after changing her name to Linda Lovelace and starring in the crossover porn hit Deep Throat. Seyfried plays the title character, while Peter Sarsgaard co-stars as her husband/Svengali Chuck Traynor. Watch the first trailer after the jump.

Update: While the original embed was removed at the studio’s request, the official version has been released and can be found below.

From Up On Poppy Hill, co-written by Hayao Miyazaki and directed by Gor? Miyazaki, was Studio Ghibli’s big 2011 release. It tells the story of two high school students hoping to clean up their hometown who run up against the corporate mindset of a local businessman. When the film came out in Japan last summer, it was a success for the legendary company and soon after, producers Frank Marshall and Kathleen Kennedy decided to bring it to North America via GKids. The film will be released in November for an Oscar qualifying run followed by a wider release in March 2013. Its impressive English language voice cast has now been revealed.

If the title character of 3, 2, 1… Frankie Go Boom looks damn close to blowing a fuse, well, you might too if you had to put up with his problems. Played by Charlie Hunnam, Frankie is an aspiring novelist who’s spent his entire life suffering humiliation at the hands of his ne’er-do-well big brother Bruce (Chris O’Dowd).

When Bruce finally gets sober, Frankie hopes things will have changed between them. But sobriety hasn’t made Bruce any less of an asshole, and he secretly films Frankie having an awkward one-night stand. Soon, the brothers find themselves on an epically strange and desperate journey to keep the tape from falling into the wrong hands. Lizzy Caplan, Chris Noth, and Whitney Cummings also star, but it’s Hunnam’s Sons of Anarchy co-star Ron Perlman you’ll want to keep an eye out for. He’ll be the one stealing scenes in eyeshadow and a lacy satin slip. Really. Watch the trailer after the jump.

First Look at Sex and The City: The Movie

Sex and the City MovieMTV have published the first photo from the Sex and The City movie, which features Sarah Jessica Parker’s Carrie Bradshaw and her love interest, Mr. Big (Chris Noth).

I was never one to watch the television series, and a big screen movie excites me even less, but I thought I’d post this because someone reading is probably interested (oh, and the news is slow today).

Sex in the City is set to hit theaters on May 30th 2008.
