Bradley Cooper (sort of) confirms “Hangover” rumor?

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Bradley Cooper is in San Diego drumming up support and buzz for the recently announced “Paradise Lost” adaptation he’s going to do with director Alex Proyas (“Dark City”). But while talking to press, he might have dropped a serious hint at the direction of the third “Hangover” (should that sequel actually happen).
Cooper was questioned by EW about Zach Galifianakis’ comments that the next “Hangover” might involve Cooper, Justin Bartha and Ed Helms breaking the deranged Alan out of a mental institute.
“You know what? That might be right,” Cooper said.
When pressed on the comment – because many thought Galifianakis tossed it out there just to throw nagging journalists down a different road – Cooper hedged by saying, “I mean, I have no idea. But that sounds good!”
And you know what? It does sound good. It would be a separation from the wake-up-hungover formula that powered Todd Phillips’ first two comedies to box office superstardom. And given the success of “The Hangover Part II,” you know a third one will happen. I’m thrilled Phillips wants to go down a new avenue, and if Cooper’s right, that idea could work very well.

Bradley Cooper playing Lucifer in “Paradise Lost”

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Ed Helms calls his “Hangover” co-star Zach Galifianakis the bearded devil. Now his other “Hangover” co-star is about to play the actual devil on screen.
Bradley Cooper has been confirmed for the role of Lucifer in director Alex Proyas’ adaptation of John Milton’s “Paradise Lost,” THR reports. The fantasy film will detail a major battle in heaven waged between Lucifer and the archangel, Michael. The trade says “Lost” will be shot ay Sydney’s Fox Studios in Australia.
Cooper is enjoying a string of good creative decisions. “Limitless,” which just reached DVD an Blu-ray, received positive reviews and decent business, while “The Hangover Part II” was a commercial blockbuster (even as it alienated critics).
“Lost” sounds epic, and Proyas just might be the right guy for the job. His previous credits involve the underrated sci-fi thrillers “Dark City” and “I, Robot.”
“I’m delighted to have found such overwhelming support here in [New South Wales] for such a unique film offering unparalleled exposure for NSW cast and crew to the cutting edge technology that will be used in the making of ‘Paradise Lost,’” Proyas said.
Let’s just hope the film is released in 2D.

“Captain America” reviews hit the Web, largely positive

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: The Internet exploded last night with reviews for Joe Johnston’s “Captain America: The First Avenger,” but if you want to go into the movie on Friday unspoiled, you might want to steer clear of the following links. Just know that the overall response was extremely positive, and buy your ticket with the other fans this weekend.
How positive? Well, Drew McWeeny at HitFix says that Johnston’s Marvel movie is “one of their very best,” and he suspects the film “will send audiences out of the theater rabid to see what’s next.”
Jeff Wells at Hollywood Elsewhere went after the naysayers, claiming, “Anyone who comes out of Captain America saying ‘meh, it’s mildly okay’ is aesthetically blocked. They just don’t get it. Captain America moves, mad-dashes, soars, whooshes, runs, delights & barrel-asses. It’s pure art direction, pure mood, and all of a piece. And mostly unpredictable.”
That’s because Anne Thompson already rained on the parade, Tweeting after last night’s press screening that the film “left me cold. Back when, this material fed Raiders, and more recently, Inglourious Basterds. Marvel played it too straight.”
Decide for yourself when “Captain America” opens everywhere this Friday.

This Week In Movies by Pete Hammond: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II

HollywoodNews.com: What else is there to talk about this week in movies? It’s all about a beloved literary character from books read by kids the world over and now brought to life in countless films, the latest opening this past Friday.
And if you think I’m talking about Winnie The Pooh you’re living in a cave.
Despite Disney’s pooh-pooh opening for the week’s only other wide release ,Winnie The Pooh, this week is all about the final, FINAL chapter of Warner Bros. gigantic film franchise , Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II. Now I wasn’t a huge fan of last November’s Part I, a very dark and somewhat convoluted affair that just seemed to drag out the Potter tale rather than expand it , but this finale is something else . a perfectly pitched emotionally satisfying way for the most successful franchise in motion picture history to go out. Audiences seemed to agree giving this one a solid ‘A’ Cinemascore rating and a record-breaking domestic weekend sendoff of an estimated $168 million, $10 million more than The Dark Knight scored three years ago. Worldwide the total now stands at nearly half a billion ($475 million) for the opening weekend, simply astounding. That beats Potter’s own previous best, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by over $70 million. Of course this is the first Potter film to succumb to the 3D disease that has swept the industry so those higher prices factored into the much bigger haul this time but actually with Potter fever running at an all time high and interest so intense in the final film it is clear records would be shattered even if it had only been released on 16MM prints.
When I talked to director David Yates on Thursday , the eve of the Potter phenomenon, he expressed his own basic dislike of the 3D process but said he did everything he could to make this 3D conversion the best possible, at least from a technical standpoint. Yates has directed the last four (out of eight) editions of the Harry Potter franchise spending six years solid going from one to another. He only finished this one just three weeks before opening and is now looking for a long vacation. The director had never dabbled in films of this scale before taking on his first one, […]

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II earns $165 million

HollywoodNews.com: The Harry Potter series finished where it started, at the top of the box office with a record breaking opening weekend. Nine-and-a-half years ago, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone opened the series with a $90.2 million, breaking the 4.5 year old opening weekend record set by The Lost World: Jurassic Park ($72 million). Over the next 9.5 years, said record was broken four more times, with the last such toppling this very weekend three years ago with The Dark Knight’s $158 million Fri-Sun take. With nearly ten years of anticipation, The Boy Who Lived has returned to the top of the opening weekend charts with a massive $168.6 million Friday-Sunday gross. That includes a record $92.1 Friday (best single day, best opening day, best Friday) which in turn included a record $43.5 million at 12:01am alone. As expected, the picture was massively front-loaded, ending the weekend with the second-smallest weekend multiplier on record, 1.83x (for newbies, weekend multiplier is the final weekend total divided by the first day). It also set another ‘negative’ record, earning 25.8% of its weekend total in those Thursday at 12:01am showings alone (the previous such record was set by the last Harry Potter film, which grossed 19% of its $125 million Fri-Sun haul at midnight).

Eva Longoria Hooks Up With a Girl in New Movie

HollywoodNews.com: Eva Longoria gets it on with Spanish actress, Kate Del Castillo, in her new indie movie, ‘Without Men’. Christian Slater also stars in the film as an American Journalist. The film hits theaters July 29th, and is an adaptation based on James Cannon’s book, ‘Tales From the Town of Widows’.
In the film, “Eva plays a strong-willed woman who is forced to take charge of her Latin-American village, after all of its men are forced to join the guerrilla revolutionaries,” according to OK magazine. Director Gabriela Tagliavini said, “It was a little difficult as the two girls are both straight so they were very nervous and laughed a lot, but I think that just made it even lovelier.”
What do you think about Eva’s steamy new role?

“New Moon” frolic shot was Robert Pattinson’s idea

By Kim Palacios
hollywoodnews.com: “I can’t stay silent about this anymore,” “New Moon” director Chris Weitz tweeted earlier today, “NM and the frolic…it was Rob’s idea.” The shot Weitz refers to occurs near the end of the film when clairvoyant vamp Alice sees a future vampire Bella frolicking through the woods with Edward. Bella’s skin sparkles conspicuously in the sun and the two seem to run in slow motion.
At the time the film came out, Weitz and other production staff expressed surprise that the shot elicited laughter in theaters. Fans largely viewed what became known as “the frolic scene” to be hokey—the shot was painstakingly blogged and tweeted about in the days following the release of the film.
