Taylor Swift releases new breakup song

HollywoodNews.com: Taylor Swift’s exes might want to start worrying as she has recently released a new breakup song that will be on her new album, ‘Red.’
Swift released the song “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” during a live video chat with her fans, states UsMagazine.com. However, while she is famous for writing about men she has dated, she isn’t revealing who this is about.
She is revealing that it was written as part of a crazy time in her life which is what the album is based on: “I called it ‘Red’ because of the tumultuous, crazy adventures in love and loss that it chronicles. In my mind, when you experience love that’s fast paced and out of control and mixes infatuation, jealousy, frustration, miscommunication, and all of those lovely emotions. . . in retrospect, it all looks red.”
Who do you think the song is about?

“Space Invaders” heading to the big screen

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: At least it’s not another superhero.
Instead, producers Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Odd Lot Entertainment’s Gigi Pritzker plan on bringing the classic video game “Space Invaders” to the big screen, THR reports. Now that they’ve optioned the rights to the title, the producers are searching for the right writer.
“Space Invaders” was a simplified point-and-shoot game from the 1980s that had no storyline, so I wonder what they’ll do for a film to separate it from something like “Skyline,” “District 9” or “Battle: Los Angeles.”
As THR notes, this is the latest in a line of ‘80s-inspired projects for di Bonaventura, who also produced the “Transformers” and “G.I. Joe” films. He’s currently working on an “Asteroids” film (also based on a video game) and a “Pet Sematary” remake.

Carrie Underwood’s music banned by station after husband’s trade

HollywoodNews.com: Carrie Underwood will be one singer you won’t be hearing if you listen to Kiss 105.3 FM in Ottawa.
The radio station has reportedly banned her songs from playing after her husband, Mike Fisher, was traded from the Ottawa Senators to the Nashville Predators, states the Vancouver Sun. The station reportedly felt that he was lured away by his wife as she is stationed in Nashville.
But Fisher has chosen to defend his wife against their claims: “I don’t know if it was for attention or not, but obviously Carrie had nothing to do with the move or the trade or anything so to imply something like that was just wrong.”
Do you think the radio station just wanted attention?

Kevin Smith’s “Red State” gets a disturbing teaser trailer

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Kevin Smith has been teasing his latest picture, “Red State,” for some time now on his own network of Web sites and social media outlets. Now, we’re getting our first look at the film … and it looks like NOTHING Smith has done prior.
That’s good, though.
Smith released a “Red State” teaser on his own Smodcast.com. It also made it to YouTube, if you’d like to check it out there:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=znerWMSjjIA
A horror film of sorts, Smith “State” is being described as “a shocking new kind of horror film that aggressively confronts higher powers and extreme doctrines with a vengeance.” It stars John Goodman, Kevin Pollack, the great Michael Parks, Dermot Mulroney, Kyle Gallner, Melissa Leo and Stephen Root.
Over the past few weeks, Smith has been raising monies for respectable charities by auctioning off “Red State” posters to the highest bidders on Twitter. He has said he is bringing the film to Sundance and will auction off distribution rights immediately after the film’s first screening.
That doesn’t explain why the trailer announces a March release date. I guess Smith will demand that in the “negotiations.”

“This Week In Movies” – ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1,’ ‘The Next Three Days’

By Pete Hammond
HollywoodNews.com: This week in movies there is one story and it looms large. Every conceivable “Harry Potter” record was broken by Warner Bros. massive worldwide launch of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I.” With an estimated $125 million total domestically and a whopping $330 million combined figure globally the box office spell has been cast . ‘Potter’ fans turned out in force starting at Midnight on Friday and gave this first part of the big finale an encouraging ‘A’ grade on Cinemascore. Of course this is the faithful talking, the can’t –wait-to-see-it-even-though-I-have-read-the-book-12-times-and-know-everything-that-is-going-to-happen bunch. To give you an idea of just how front-loaded this thing was there was a fairly significant drop from Friday to Saturday but in the scheme of things that drop was in a bucket. This is why Warner Bros has decided to get even deeper into the movie tentpole blockbuster business, threatening to unleash 8 biggies a year in hopes of catching lightning in a bottle. Not everything has the savvy magic of Harry P though. This is a true phenomenon. I only wish the film itself were not such a dark, overlong slog that basically serves as nothing more than a teaser to the main event, the big showdown between Voldemort and Harry coming with the 3D converted Part II in July. Can you just imagine what those grosses are going to be like? I actually think the HP filmmakers slavish attention to every dotted i in J.K. Rowling’s prose is what makes this one such a long sit, but it clearly doesn’t matter to fans. You would think they would at least miss Hogwarts, all but completely absent here. And the whole romantic triangle business between Harry, Hermione and Ron is just sooooooo ‘Twilight-lite’. Am I alone, here? Guess so. Can’t argue with cold hard cash.

Judging from the abysmal performance of the week’s only other wide release, “The Next Three Days,” it might be wise for any competitor to steer clear of Part II come summer. This pretty good Russell Crowe thriller about a nebbishy husband-turned-criminal in order to spring his wife (Elizabeth Banks) from prison posted a terrible 5th place estimate of $6.8 million failing to draw the hoped-for adult audience in. Writer/Director Paul Haggis smartly adapted a French film, “Pour Elle” and made it percolate with suspense and fine acting, not only from Crowe but also a cool [...]

Bruce Willis prefers British women

HollywoodNews.com: ‘Red’ star Bruce Willis demands he only works with hot women in his movies.
While at the premiere for his new flick ‘Red’ in London, he told British newspaper the Daily Star: “I only want to work with attractive women in every film that I’m in, regardless of whether it makes sense. I want to do more comedy, I’d love to work with Jennifer Aniston again.”
Bruce also said what type of woman he goes for. He added: “I do prefer British girls – I married one. I look for beauty, charm and graciousness.”
‘Red’ is an action-comedy that follows the story of top CIA agents who are framed and must stay ahead of the game as they tackle one of the government’s biggest conspiracies.

This Week In Movies – “Jackass 3D,” “Red,” “Conviction”

By Pete Hammond
HollywoodNews.com: Box office-wise this will probably be known as the week that clearly marked the decline of western civilization. With its near stunning $50 million gross Paramount’s scatological gross-out epic “Jackass 3D” exceeded expectations on about the same level as it managed to exceed any expectation of taste. The enthusiastic public reception to this third chapter in Johnny Knoxville and gang’s low brow exercise in vomit-inducing bodily pranks probably says more about what audiences crave than it does about the “filmmakers” who serve it all up in gut-blasting 3D. Want to see a dildo fly right into your face? This is the place. Want to watch a fat guy running on a treadmill wrapped in cellophane producing ‘sweat cocktails’ for adventurous drinkers? Line up now. Want to check out a hungry pig named Bob trying to extract an apple from the same fat guy’s rear end? Welcome to Knoxville’s own Fellini-esque vision of human debasement. It’s like watching The 3 Stooges on an acid trip, only there are 9 of these guys with names like Bam Margera, Ryan Dunn, Steve-O, Jason “Wee Man” Acuna, Preston Lacy, “Danger Ehren” McGhehey, Dave England and Chris Pontius whose self-induced torture of his male member (aided by a toy helicopter) deserves some sort of bravery medal. Some of it is undeniably funny but you’ll want to take a cold shower afterwards. Of course this kind of stuff is nothing new, it’s just more extreme. In the 60’s there were a series of shockumentaries such as Mondo Cane which promised such sights as people eating excrement etc. The difference now are 3D effects that allow the excrement to seem like it’s flying off the screen and into the theatre. You haven’t lived until you witness the outhouse bungi jump! Even with hiked prices for 3D the studio was taken by surprise by just how much of a craving moviegoers have for this kind of thing. Another “Jackass” is guaranteed and certain to go even further than this. These are the times we are living in.

The week’s other wide release also did quite well, if not even half the “Jackass” haul. “RED” could be dismissed as just another Bruce Willis action vehicle were it not for a supporting cast whose combined ages number into the several hundreds. This clever “geriaction” movie features the [...]

“Jackass 3D” breaks several records with $50 million debut weekend

By Scott Mendelson
HollywoodNews.com: “Jackass 3-D” grossed a whopping $50 million in its debut weekend, setting several records and setting punditry tongues wagging in the process. First of all, the film bested the $48.1 million opening weekend for “Scary Movie 3″ in 2003, taking the October opening weekend record. Second of all, the opening figure is far and away the best opening weekend for any kind of non-fiction/documentary film in history. If you count this series as a documentary franchise (which I do), then the third entry is now the fifth-highest grossing documentary in history in just three days. It stands behind “Jackass: The Movie” ($64 million), “Jackass Number Two” ($72 million), “March of the Penguins” ($77 million), and “Fahrenheit 9/11″ ($119 million). While the franchise has mediocre legs (part one had a 2.9x weekend-to-total multiplier in 2002 and part two had a 2.4x multiplier in 2006), thus making $100 million+ not quite a sure thing yet, there is little doubt that the film will end its domestic run as the second-highest grossing documentary/non-fiction film of all time. Still, 3-D films seem to have better legs than average (witness the useless “My Soul to Take” dropping just 53% in weekend two, as well as the inexplicably strong holds of “Legends of the Guardians,” now at $46 million), partially because they keep the bigger auditoriums for longer periods of time. If it can manage a mere 2.4x multiplier, it will in fact surpass the Michael Moore anti-Bush epic.
There will be much discussion this week about how much of an effect the 3-D format (and related ticket-price bump) had to do with this performance, and this is a rare case where it must be acknowledged. The opening weekends of “Jackass: The Movie” ($22 million) and “Jackass Number Two” ($29 million) aren’t anywhere near the debut for part III, even when adjusted for inflation (around $33 million apiece). It is difficult to deny that the appeal of watching Johnny Knoxville and the gang horribly maim themselves in actual (not converted) 3-D had a certain appeal to both hardcore fans and those who only casually followed the franchise. As such, 3-D ticket sales accounted for 90% of the gross. As I’ve said before, 3-D is a tool, not a genre in-and-of itself, and Jackass is a franchise that lent itself to this newly-popular tool. More importantly, I’d argue, this is an R-rated film franchise (and [...]
