On Monday we showed you a brief character clip of Rob Lowe from I Melt With You, the new film from Mark Pellington (Arlington Road, Henry Poole is Here). Four more were released this week, and now that the final clip is out (a NSFW one featuring Sasha Grey) we’ve collected the latter four for your perusal. See ’em all after the break. Read More »
I Melt With You is the next film from Mark Pellington (Arlington Road, Henry Poole is Here) and will debut soon at the Sundance Film Festival. Below you’ll find the first of a series of very brief teasers for the film. This one features Rob Lowe, seemingly in a mode of quiet distress. We’ve known all along that this was intended to be an emotionally intense, perhaps even harrowing film. This very brief clip makes me wonder what we’ll see are more are released over the course of this week. My curiosity remains engaged. Read More »
Anyone clamoring for another wild 3D romp from the mind of Robert Rodriguez is in luck. Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World is now shooting in Austin, Texas in anticipation of a August 19, 2011 release date. Rodriguez is not only directing from his own screenplay but will also serve as producer, director of photography, editor and visual effects supervisor. The film stars Jessica Alba as a retired secret agent, married to Joel McHale, who is called back into action when the the villainous Timekeeper (played by Jeremy Piven) threatens to take over the world. It’ll also feature the return of Antonio Banderas, Danny Trejo and the original Spy Kids Alexa Vega and Daryl Sabara, though they aren’t the stars. Read the full plot description and more after the jump. Read More »
Mark Pellington is putting together a not-so-obvious cast for his upcoming small-budget thriller, I Melt With You. The director already has Jeremy Piven and Thomas Jane, which left two big roles to cast. Now one of them has been filled by Rob Lowe. Read More »
While I went in hopeful, I ended up hating Mark Pellington‘s last film, Henry Poole is Here. Hated it enough that hearing that the screenwriter, Albert Torres, had been hired to rewrite the live-action Akira adaptation all but killed my scant interest in that project.
But I’ve heard very good things about Pellington’s work on U2 3D (maybe not a surprise, given his music video background) and thought there was potential on display in earlier features like Arlington Road and The Mothman Prophecies. I’d like to see Pellington realize that potential, and wonder if I Melt With You, an ‘ensemble thriller’ that may now count Thomas Jane and Jeremy Piven among the cast, might be the ticket.

Quick, who’s the most obvious cameo to have in Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps? I guess I’ve already given it away right there in the headline, but you should have had the answer anyway: Donald Trump. The cameo is so on the nose that I would have disbelieved it if I only read the account from the UK’s Daily Mail tabloid. They make stuff up all the time, after all. But there are photos and everything, of Trump with returning star Michael Douglas, and director Oliver Stone.
We don’t know who Trump plays, but I’d put my money on ‘Donald Trump’. Hopefully it’ll be nothing but a very brief appearance; I’ll have enough trouble looking at Gordon Gekko twenty years later without dealing with the distraction of Trump’s hair. Nic Cage has nothing on that guy.
After the break, a whole slew of actors join the indie Waska.

Paramount Vantage has released a new movie trailer for The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard on Moviefone, but Trailer Addict has the red band version. The film stars Jeremy Piven as a Used-car liquidator named Don Ready who is hired by a failing auto dealership to turn their Fourth of July sale into a majorly profitable event.
Basically, Piven is doing the same act that he does on Entourage, but instead of being a Hollywood agent, this time he’s a car salesman. Don’t get me wrong, the fast talking asshole character Piven has perfected is incredibly funny and suits him well. This film however seems to go for corny over-the-top gags, which just isn’t my brand of humor. Watch the trailer embedded after the jump.

HBO’s hit series Entourage has been renewed for a sixth season, which will begin production in early 2009 for a Summer debut. I haven’t had the chance to catch up on this season of the show yet. Has Entourage lost it’s spark or is it better than ever?

Empire has the movie trailer for Guy Ritchie’s new film RockNRolla. When a Russian mobster orchestrates a crooked land deal, millions of dollars are up for grabs, and all of London’s criminal underworld wants in on the action. Everyone from a dangerous crime lord to a sexy accountant, a corrupt politician and down-on-their-luck petty thieves conspire, collude and collide with one another in an effort to get rich quick. I’m not quite sure what to think about this new trailer. On one hand it looks like a return to form for Ritchie. On the other it almost feels like Ritchie is doing an impression of his old self. Don’t get me wrong, it instantly looks 100 times more cool at Ritchie’s 2002 bomb Swept Away. Watch the trailer below and as always, tell me what you think in the comments!
Starring Gerard Butler, Thandie Newton, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Jeremy Piven, Idris Elba, Tom Wilkinson, RockNRolla is set to hit theaters on October 31st 2008.
