The Devil Wears Prada Unleash “Vengeance”

HollywoodNews.com: Ferret Music recording group The Devil Wears Prada have unveiled the first glimpse of their upcoming live CD/DVD. “Vengeance” will have its world premiere today on FEARnet TV, slated to air at 2 pm ET/11 am PT, while simultaneously debuting online via the popular cable channel’s official website, located at www.fearnet.com/news/b25636_exclusive_devil_wears_prada_premiere.html. The as-yet-untitled CD/DVD will arrive in stores everywhere on June 26th.
“Vengeance” was filmed last December at The Palladium in Worcester, Massachusetts during the first leg of The Devil Wears Prada’s ongoing “Dead Throne” tour. A new series of shows will kick off tomorrow, March 9th, at The Castle Theatre in Bloomington, Illinois, with dates continuing through early April (see attached itinerary). Support on all dates comes from Every Time I Die, Letlive., and Oh, Sleeper.
The Devil Wears Prada will then head down to Latin America for a headline tour alongside fellow metalcore heroes, Whitechapel, with stops slated for Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Columbia, and Mexico. The band is then slated to spend its summer as one of the main stage headliners traveling the US with the all-star Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, set to get underway June 30th at the San Manuel Amphitheater in San Bernardino, California. Tickets to the much-anticipated festival tour – which also features Slipknot, Slayer, Anthrax, and the one and only Motörhead – will go on sale on April 6th. For complete details and ticket information, please visit http://rockstarmayhemfest.com/dates.
“DEAD THRONE” made a spectacular chart debut upon its September 2011 release, entering Billboard’s “Top Independent Albums” ranking at #1 while also hitting the top 10 on the overall Billboard 200. The album – The Devil Wears Prada’s fourth full-length release – received universal critical applause, with the ever-influential Kerrang! hailing its “dramatic dynamic shifts and a defter blend of melody and muscle, making this by far the best album the Ohio outfit have yet produced.” In its 9-out-of-10 rave, AbsolutePunk.net praised “DEAD THRONE” for possessing “a sense of urgency and maturity here that few in the genre will be able to replicate” before officially declaring it to be “the best metalcore album of the year”.
The Devil Wears Prada next unleashed “Zombie Slay,” a first-person, multi-level action game available for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, and Android mobile devices. The game – which is currently on sale for $.99 and available for download via the iTunes Store [...]

Anne Hathaway thinks she’s dated a few gay guys before

HollywoodNews.com: Anne Hathaway, the lovely actress who has starred in such great films as The Devil Wears Prada, Rachel’s Getting Married and Love and Other Drugs (You didn’t expect me to include Get Smart, did you?) was interviewed by Chelsea Handler for the new issue of Interview Magazine.
Here’s a portion I found to be quite interesting and it shows what a wonderful straight ally Anne is to the LGBT community:
HANDLER: Where did you go when you were 16? Straight to New York?
HATHAWAY: To L.A., actually. I’d been going to New York to audition while in high school, and then when I was 16 I wound up getting a TV series that took me to L.A. The other thing I want to say about Jersey is they need to get on the New York bandwagon and legalize gay marriage.
HANDLER: Yeah. That would be a good idea for any state.
HATHAWAY: But I think everybody should do that. It’s not a specifically Jersey thing.
HANDLER: Well, your brother is gay, right?
HATHAWAY: My older brother is gay.
HANDLER: We talked about that last time you were on the show. I’m convinced that my older brother is gay, too, although he has yet to come out of the closet.
HATHAWAY: He doesn’t admit it?
HANDLER: He doesn’t admit it. I keep telling him he’s gay, but he keeps pretending that he’s not.
HATHAWAY: I’m convinced that a few guys I’ve dated are gay, and they won’t admit it. I think we’ve all done that.

Sarah Jessica Parker in first “I Don’t Know” trailer

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Sarah Jessica Parker’s best known for her “Sex and the City” role, but she’s still attempting to branch away from the HBO franchise and find mainstream movie success in a different act. While she has had success in romantic comedies, it appears that her next comedy might be a shift in a new direction.
Douglas McGrath’s “I Don’t Know How She Does It,” due in theaters in September, stars Parker as a career woman juggling work and family. Greg Kinnear, Kelsey Grammer and Pierce Brosnan co-star alongside Ms. Parker, but they’ll only be as good as the screenplay. Good thing the studio grabbed Aline Brosh McKenna (“The Devil Wears Prada,” “Morning Glory”) for the gig.
Today, Yahoo Movies! has its first look at a teaser trailer for the comedy. We’ve posted it below. The movie will be out on Sept. 16. Let us know what you think!

Will Anne Hathaway be able to measure up as Catwoman?

By Greg Hernandez
HollywoodNews.com: Catwoman is slated to surface in Christopher Nolan’s next Batman movie and she will be played by the “it girl” of the moment Anne Hathaway!
How big a star is Anne right now? HUGE! Not only is she co-hosting the Oscars next month with James Franco, but she also let it be known to ‘Glee’ creator Ryan Murphy that she’d like to play Kurt Hummel’s gay aunt on the show and it looks that that will happen.
Anne, who was terrific in last year’s ‘Love and Other Drugs’ opposite Jake Gyllenhaal, became a star nearly a decade ago in the ‘Princess Diaries’ movies and has since built an impressive body of work that includes an Oscar-nominated performance in ‘Rachel Getting Married’ as well as such classics as ‘Brokeback Mountain’ and ‘The Devil Wears Prada.’
Now she will add the role of Selena Kyle (aka Catwoman) in ‘The Dark Knight Rises.’
She has many acts to follow (it seems Catwomen really do have nine lives!) beginning with Julie Newmar’s performance as Catwoman in the original Batman TV series. She left the series and was replaced by a more sexualized and subversive Catwoman played by the one and only Eartha Kitt who could purr in the role like no one else. (Eartha is my personal fave).
Former Miss America Lee Meriwether played the part in the first Batman film in 1966 with the character pretending to be a Soviet journalist to entrap Bruce Wayne.
The next time we saw Catwoman was in the feature film ‘Batman Returns’ with Michelle Pfeiffer, armed with a whip, playing opposite Michael Keaton. She got raves for her portrayal of Catwoman as a secretary who assumes a new identity after a group of cats saves her life.

Stanley Tucci!

By Greg Hernandez
hollywoodnews.com: I am in Palm Springs for a little getaway but will be posting regularly!
A reader suggested Stanley Tucci, currently starring with Cher and Christina Aguilera in Burlesque, for Morning Man. It’s already afternoon but I think it’s an excellent idea!
Not only is he most handsome, he’s a brilliant actor who I loved most opposite Meryl Streep in two very different kinds of movies and roles: The Devil Wears Prada and Julie & Julia.
The actor, who turned 50 this month, made his film debut in 1985′s Prizzi’s Honor and has gone on to appear in such films as The Pelican Brief, Road to Perdition, Kiss of Death, and Big Night.

What is the story with McAdams and Ford’s “Morning Glory?”

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: So far, Roger Michell’s “Morning Glory” looks like the kind of movie you can bring your parents to over Thanksgiving break.
Michell previously helmed safe, palpable fare like “Notting Hill” and “Venus” (yet showed some edge with “Enduring Love” and “Changing Lanes”). It has Harrison Ford, whom dad likes, and Diane Keaton, whom mom likes. And it was penned by “The Devil Wears Prada” scripter Aline Brosh McKenna, who trades the fashion industry for daytime television and swaps Anne Hathaway with Rachel McAdams. Everybody’s happy.
Yet one commentator, Jeff Wells, weighs in ahead of embargo to say Michell’s film is “a tiny bit better” than expected, and even lobs Ford toward the Supporting Actor category.
Is this possible? Will a dark horse enter the Oscar race?
We’ll have to wait until Nov. 12 to catch “Morning” in all of its “Glory.” But this afternoon, a “Making of” reel focusing on the film’s assorted characters has made its way to Yahoo Movies, so have a peek and decide for yourself.

Emily Blunt hits sexy laughs in ‘Wild Target,’ playing at Hollywood Film Festival

HollywoodNews.com: Come meet “Wild Target” Director Jonathan Lynn (“The Whole Nine Yards,” “My Cousin Vinny”) in a Q&A following the Hollywood Film Festival screening on Sunday, Oct. 24, 5 p.m. at the Hollywood ArcLight Cinema. For more info and to buy tickets, click here.
REVIEW: It’s been a while since a breezy, British action comedy has arrived on U.S. shores; their heyday being in the ‘80s when such titles like “A Fish Called Wanda” and “Time Bandits” held their place on the marquee.
When it comes to mobsters, guns and laughs, British director Jonathan Lynn knows a thing or two about crafting a crowd pleasing caper. Lynn is so good at it, Hollywood tapped him for his stylings with “The Whole Nine Yards,” “Sgt. Bilko” and “My Cousin Vinny.” With “Wild Target,” Lynn comfortably returns to the London stomping ground which he made famous with the Eric Idle/Robbie Coltrane chase comedy “Nuns on the Run” in this remake of a 1993 French black comedy.
In “Wild Target,” Bill Nighy stars as Victor, a resilient hitman and marks man who comes from a long line of family assassins. Despite his success, his days of snipering are unfilled. He’s bugged by his mother to get married – a calling Victor has never pursued since he has an identity crisis.
Victor’s humdrum life is turned on its head when his art dealer client Ferguson (Rupert Everett) is double-crossed over a Rembrandt painting purchase by Rose (Emily Blunt), a kleptomaniac who unloads bogus pieces of art. Bill attempts to target Rose in a garage, but as she’s pursued by a plethora of assassins, he winds up becoming her protector. Tony (Rupert Grint), a slacker of sorts and innocent bystander, is scooped up by the duo and taken on the lam.
The chase scenes are hysterically fun in “Wild Target” and the film possesses a kinetic pace. What works here is watching all three actors succeed outside the zones they’ve left impressions with on the big screen. Nighy has carved a reputation for playing zany hams as rocker Billy Mack in “Love Actually” and Davy Jones in “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End.” In “Wild Target,” Nighy is winning as a poised, sharp straight man, appearing stiff on the surface, but funny when cracked by Rose’s antics. Long known for playing the [...]

‘The Expendables’ and ‘Eat Pray Love’ have strong weekend multipliers

By Scott Mendelson
HollywoodNews.com: Proving once again that films aimed at older audiences have theoretically stronger legs than those aimed at teens, The Expendables and “Eat Pray Love” both had strong weekend multipliers and both performed at or above realistic expectations. With all the hub-bub regarding ‘the guy movie vs. the chick flick’, both films posted exceptional opening weekends and both respective marketing teams should be commended. As for Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, its frontloaded and underwhelming debut proves that geek cultures is not mainstream culture, and that hardcore geek interest should not be mistaken for mainstream interest. With films like that, the only real victory should be the fact that it got made and released. Anyway, here we go… The Expendables ended the weekend with $35 million, giving it a decent 2.64x weekend multiplier. As mentioned yesterday, this is the massive win that Lionsgate needed to prove that they could open something other than Saw sequels and Tyler Perry dramas to anything resembling blockbuster numbers. As I’ve written any number of times, if you take away the Saw sequels and the Tyler Perry pictures, the studio’s biggest opening weekend was Fahrenheit 9/11 with $23.9 million and The Haunting In Connecticut with $23 million. Be it Rambo ($18.2 million), Kick Ass ($19.8 million), 3:10 to Yuma ($14 million), or Killers ($15.8 million), Lionsgate has had a problem opening seemingly break-out pictures above their $15-19 million ceiling.
At $35 million, The Expendables posted the second biggest opening weekend in Lionsgate history, besting the $33.6 million debut of Saw III and falling short of the $40 million debut of Madea Goes to Jail. For comparison, the prior best opening weekend in Lionsgate history for something that was not a Madea picture or a Jigsaw epic were the $23 million debuts of Fahrenheit 9/11 (which broke a record for a film opening under 1,000 screens set by Stallone’s Rocky III back in 1982) and The Haunting In Connecticut. Lionsgate has had several high-profile disappointments of late, not so much flops as heavily-hyped pictures that none-the-less failed to break the $21 million opening weekend ceiling that Lionsgate seems to have. That they could successfully open this mainstream entertainment as large as any other studio is an encouraging sign that Lionsgate can play in the bigger studios’ sandbox. The film cost $82 million, but Lionsgate paid just $20 million for distribution and offered up marketing expenses [...]
