Happy Memorial Day Weekend

I've got a four-day weekend so it's gonna be quiet here at the blog until Tuesday, most likely. Me and Chris Pratt are gonna unpack some wieners and roll around in the surf - you know, the usual. Anybody got any good plans? I'm seeing Tomorrowland in a bit but...
And are we all gonna go see the Poltergeist remake or what? I totally am - Sam Rockwell's looking really hot in the trailer. I've avoided all the reviews but that's what matters most. Don't give me that look! I know what matters most!

Have a good one, everybody.

I Am Link

--- Out Of Drogo - I was all excited when I clicked on the news that Peter Sarsgaard is joining The Magnificent Seven remake's cast because hey oh another dude I like on a great big heap of dudes I like, score. But then I read the fine print and saw that at the same time Jason Momoa has apparently had to drop out for an unspecified reason. Now I am sad. I mean Sarsgaard is a better actor, but Momoa's, you know, full in all the right places. I was hoping he'd rassle with Matt Bomer or something.

--- Mama Deadite - Mimi Rogers, who's gone eternally underrated, has just joined the cast of Ash vs The Evil Dead, that Starz series that's bringing back our favorite "aging lothario and chainsaw-handed monster hunter." Ha that's how THR described him. Awesome. Mimi is playing the lead female's mother. I hope the point is made that she and Bruce Campbell are very nearly the exact same age and the show don't try to build a romance between him and the younger woman.

--- Daario Doubled - BuzzFeed interviewed the male model named Ignacio Jimenez Blanco who is a body double for Michiel Huisman on A Game of Thrones but the dude refuses to tell if its his butt that we saw in that first butt scene or not. I still don't see why Michiel Huisman would need a butt double though; we've seen that and more more more before and it's ALL GOOD. (thanks Mac)

--- Ravishing Runner - You should've heard the squeal of pleasure that spilled from between my lips when I read the news that cinematographer slash genius Roger Deakins is shooting the Blade Runner sequel along with director Denis Villenueve. It was downright lecherous. Deakins is of course the man who shot films from Fargo to Skyfall and everywhere in between. Think of a pretty movie picture from the last twenty years and there's a great big fat chance he shot it!

--- Bad Girl - Once Jack Huston signed on for the lead in The Crow reboot my interest waned, I find him to be one of the droopiest examples of nepotism we've got these days, but now that I'm hearing that Andrea Riseborough, my beloved Andrea Riseborough, is probably going to play the main villain in the film well, holy shit am I interested again! Riseborough, like Eva Green, is always the best thing about any project she's in - hell I even liked her scenes in Birdman and that movie made me apoplectic. She's the best. The character she's signed on for was a man in the comics.

--- It's just a little nugget buried halfway down this page but apparently The Babadook director Jennifer Kent is keen on making her next project something called The Nightingale, and it will be "a revenge drama set in Tasmania in the 1820s." Okay! Sure why not. I will follow her anywhere after The Babadook. Anywhere.

--- After Looking - Weekend and Looking director Andrew Haigh, once he's done shooting the latter's series finale movie thing, is planning on turning Willy Vlautin's book Lean On Pete into a movie. Anybody read it? it's about a homeless kid in Portland Oregon who befriends a race-horse named Lean On Pete and they go on a big trek across the Pacific Northwest together. When I say "befriends" I don't mean this is like a talking animal movie or anything... I don't think. Anyway Haigh's also got another film in the can already - it's called 45 Years and it stars Charlotte Rampling and I want it something bad. That's probably out in the fall.

--- Baby Nappers - Ellen Page and Allison Janney, two great tastes tasting great together, again! The Juno pair are going to star in Tallulah, from one of the directors on Orange in the New Black, which is about a woman who tries to rescue a baby from a bad mother only to be accused of kidnapping but somehow it kind of sounds like it's supposed to be a comedy? With these two actresses it certainly should be anyway.

Two Weeks Til The Red Dragon

Two weeks! Fourteen days! And then Hannibal is back for its third season! This is very exciting! I hadn't been paying attention to what time-slot it has this year so I'm only now realizing it's suddenly a Thursday night show - that's a good thing right? Maybe it's just the fact that I grew up in the 80s but Thursday night, that's prime real-estate isn't it? Even at 10? That's when ER was on right? I don't know, I'd like a fourth season, and a fifth season, and so on, is all. This means you, you reading this right now, you need to watch! What if I told you that Richard Armitage was showing up...

... to roll around in his underwear? Would that help? As previously reported the Hobbit star will be playing the serial killer Francis Dolarhyde, aka the Red Dragon, in the new run of episodes. Well there's a new preview of the show out, and we finally see him! Lots of him actually!

When he actually shows up remind me to do a "Who Wore It Best?" post with him against Ralph Fiennes, who struck the same pose in the Red Dragon movie. Until then here's that preview:

God every shot of Gillian Anderson is like buttah.

And don't worry I haven't fogtten about you, Hugh...

Sup With Matt Bomer

Well I guess I pulled my trigger finger on that Magic Mike shot too quickly - who knew Matty was gonna go full-on PR assault though? Sure we did just see some shots of him at the beach in Hawaii earlier this week but this batch (via thanks Mac)...

... this is even better. Don't you love the way his abs 
are reflected on the surface of that paddle-board?

Hot wax job!
And then...

... the shots of him and Simon being all affectionate. Sigh. What a world, what a world. Hit the jump for 20 more pictures...

On Bended Bomer

That there new group photoshop-a-topia for Magic Mike XXL just got released via the movie's Instagram account. Here, we should zoom in on the important bits:

Matt Bomer on his knees! Hell yes.

Today's Fanboy Delusion

Today I'd rather be...

... playing "Hide the raptor" with Chris Pratt.

Show me your T-Rex and I'll show you mine! Oh my god - a new fetish reveals itself... I don't know why it never occurred to me that my teenage self's favorite movie and its assorted paraphernalia mixed up with a hot dude would strike sex gold, but seeing Chris Pratt in a soaking wet Jurassic Park t-shirt is like the HOLY GRAIL, you guys.

These are for the new issue of Entertainment Weekly which had better be waiting for me when I get home, dammit. They also have a behind-the-scenes video at their site, but I can't embed it so you'll have to click over (which is of course their point). 

Oh and hit the jump! 
There is lots more hot dino-action to come...

Quote of the Day

I just went through probably a couple hundred pictures out of Cannes and I couldn't find any shots of Jake Gyllenhaal and Xavier Dolan having a moment together. I posted that shot of the two of them last week in the same vicinity (but clearly not interacting) and now here a full week later still nothing. That's the closest they've come (in front of the cameras, that is) above, using Sienna Miller as a man buffer (not the first time Sienna's been in that position, no doubt). Oh well. At least Xavier's giving interviews that fuel our fantasy fires, like this talk with Vanity Fair (thanks Mac):

VF: You spoke about having a crush on Jake Gyllenhaal in an interview last year. Is it hard to concentrate with him on the panel? 

Dolan: [Grins] Is it hard? What part of me?

Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

The Craft (1996)

Chris: You're just jealous.
Nancy: Jealous? Jealous? You don't even exist to me! 
You don't exist! You are nothing! 
You are shit! You don't exist. 
The only way you know how to treat 
women is by treating them like whores! Well, 
you're the whore! And this is gonna stop! Do you
understand! Do you understand what I'm saying? Hmm?
Chris: [frightened] I'm sorry! 
 Nancy: Oh, he's sorry! He's sorry, he's sorry, he's sorry, 
he's sorry, he's sorry! [Nancy screams] Sorry, my ass!
Happy birthday, Fairuza Balk!

Five Frames From ?


What movie is this?

Good Morning, Matt

Good morning!

These pictures would show up in the middle of the night while I'm sleeping (I suppose it was daytime in the UK, where Attitude Magazine's posting from, but still) so I feel like the last person to post them, all while I felt so ahead of the curve yesterday when I posted the cover. Oh well. We're posting them and that's...

... what matters. And there are a whole bunch, 
so hit the jump for maximum Longbottom...

Chris Evans Is Gonna Make You Beg

On your knees, Frank Grillo. (via)

Matthew Lewis, Cover Boy

We've all been very good wizards and witches, you guys -- Neville Longbottom's flashing his abs for the cover of Attitude next month! Fingers and toes crossed there's plenty more inside the magazine. (via, thanks Henry) ETA here are a couple pictures of Matt recently filming his new movie Me Before You because, well...

The Erotic Spectacle of Chris Pratt & Motorcycle

Vroom vroom, motherfuckers. Jurassic World just released a featurette video of Chris Pratt working on motorcycle stunts from the movie, and just like that time we watched him shoot a Men's Fitness lay-out on a motorcycle there's just something about this specific dude with a great big throbbing machine vibrating between his thick thighs that's always and I mean always worth watching. Here's the video:

We've only got three weeks til this is out! Dino-mite!

You've Got Cooties

We've been waiting for this movie forever times forever but we've finally got a trailer for Cooties, which you can watch down below. This is the movie with Elijah Wood, Allison Pill, Leigh Whannell, and a few others battling rabid kiddies that's had two wonderful posters - number one here and number two here. This is dropping in September. It looks like great fun!
