I like this Lee Pace guy. He’s awesome in Lincoln, was great in Pushing Daisies and is sure to be good in The Hobbit, once his character appears. The actor hit the red carpet for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey this week and confirmed he’s auditioning for James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy on Monday, loves the script and has been researching the Star-Lord. Watch the interview below. Read More »

From the moment Disney announced its intentions to create a new Star Wars trilogy, one of the big questions has been which filmmaker might get a crack at the iconic franchise. But the directors themselves are fans, too, and even as we’ve been arguing which of them should get the job, many of them are just going through the same emotions we are — surprise, concern, excitement. Hit the jump read their thoughts.

Eagle-eyed /Film readers likely noticed there were no Superhero Bits today. Blame a last minute, awesome interview oppurtunity. But we couldn’t leave for the weekend without some kind of superhero update and both Marvel Studios and Marvel’s enemy Latino Review were happy to oblige.
On the official side of things, Marvel and Disney released the first official plot synopsis for Thor: The Dark World, which focuses heavily on the Phase Two/post-Avengers nature of the story. On the rumored side of things, Latino Review reports that a few members of the Guardians of the Galaxy will be featured more than others and are having their backstories interweaved into the Marvel Cinematic Universe continuity.
Across the cosmos with Captain America: The Winter Soldier, rumors say Mary Elizabeth Winstead is now at the top of the list for a young female actress and that Game of Thrones‘ Nikolaj Coster Waldau, Lost‘s Josh Holloway and Kevin Durand are all up for additional roles.

Do you want to see a couple generations of today’s stars — Hugh Jackman, Kate Winslet, Halle Berry, Emma Stone, and many more — spouting dirty jokes? Then Movie 43, masterminded by Peter “One Half of the Farrelly Brothers” Farrelly, probably has something for you. The red-band trailer has turned into an essential component in marketing the R-rated comedy, and when the comedy is promised as a collection of particularly dirty, foul-mouthed sketches, nothing but the red-band will do.
So here’s a first look at Movie 43, which features over 20 comedy sketches from nearly a dozen directors, and a cavalcade of stars. Some of the stuff is so in line with people’s previous work that it doesn’t even seem transgressive; I think one of the Scary Movies pooped on me, so seeing Anna Faris ask for the same thing is just turnabout/fair play. But seeing Halle Berry in wild mode might be great, and it’s always fun to see Kate Winslet go blue. (Check out Romance & Cigarettes if you’ve never seen it — not a great movie, but lord, does Winslet let go there.)
Be ready for some dirty, but not off-puttingly filthy jokes in the not safe for work trailer below. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Over the summer we heard not only that Marvel will definitely be making a film based on the slightly-more-obscure-than-The Avengers space team the Guardians of the Galaxy. Not only that, but James Gunn (Slither, Super) was said to be in talks to direct. Joss Whedon more or less confirmed the news of Gunn’s hire not long ago, and now Gunn has released a statement talking about the film.
