SAUSAGE PARTY – The whole idea behind SAUSAGE PARTY is a bit disturbing, that food is actually conscious and reacts to how we, well, devour them. Like I don’t want to know about my bread loving getting spread with mustard and then at the same time get eaten in extreme pain. Luckily, it is all in good, filthy and dirty-talking fun with a host of funny people including Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, James Franco, Danny McBride and more. Obviously this is a very […]Read On »

OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL continues to rule the boxoffice as easily as Oz (James Franco) himself rules in the Emerald City. Before the film opened the very talented actresses that play the three witches of the movie spoke of their witchy roles. Michelle Williams plays Glinda the Good Witch, Rachel Weisz is Evanora Witch of the East, and Milla Kunis is Theodroa Witch of the West. All three of the actresses had a good time making the movie, and not a single one of them didn’t enjoy being in wires and flying about the sets. “I think we all […]Read On »

Universal Pictures and MRC presented the World Premiere of TED, June 21st at the Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. Fans lined the street and even Spider-man joined them to see Mark Wahlberg, Mila Kunis and Seth MacFarlane. Not to disappoint the fans they went over to sign autographs.

Having an annoying roommate is one thing. Having that roommate that’s also your childhood teddy bear is a whole other thing — especially when it’s a living, breathing thing that likes the ladies and enjoys drugs. That’s the set-up for the new Seth MacFarlane comedy TED which features Mark Wahlberg as John Bennett who made a wish as a kid that has haunted him as an adult and Mila Kumis as Lori Collins, his somewhat understanding girlfriend. Doing TED was a no brainer for Kunis, since she currently voices the role of Meg Griffin on the Seth MacFarlane created FAMILY […]Read On »
Dancing can be dangerous, and not just physically. The canon of ballet narratives is full of tales of people (mostly women) who dance themselves to death.

Now director Darren Aronofsky uses the classic SWAN LAKE as the backdrop and catalyst for the potential implosion of his heroine.
