Apparently the rumour mill has been going strong when it comes to Jon Hamm, since it seems a lot of people think he’s been approached to play Dr. Strange in the upcoming Marvel movie. Well, sorry to disappoint, but it’s not happening.
From Digital Spy (via Movie Pilot):
“The funny thing about the internet is that you can have rumors go on about possible jobs and possible things that I had no idea about…maybe…I don’t know. You know, it’s funny when the internet knows more about you than you do, but…maybe the internet was talking to Marvel, I don’t know. (laughs) No, I certainly wasn’t approached by (Marvel), but I do like Dr. Strange. He’s a very cool, cool character.”
Well, okay, so maybe he WILL be playing Dr. Strange – at least it leaves the door open for him to be approached, anyway. Do you hear that, Marvel? Go get Jon Hamm!
I’m not familiar with the character so I don’t know whether he’d be a good fit for the role. What do you guys think?

If you were a fan of the first two Kick-Ass films, you were probably disappointed to learn that there won’t be a third one. There probably would have been, but you bastards torrented it instead of going to see it in theatres/buying the actual DVD, so there’s no budget and no point and it’s all your fault. At least that’s what Chloe Moretz says.
From Digital Spy:
“Sadly, I think I’m done with the character,” Moretz said. “Hit-Girl was a very cool character, but I don’t think there will be any more movies. You make these movies for the fanboys, but nowadays everyone seems to pirate them rather than watch them in the movie theatre.
“Kick-Ass 2 was one of the number one pirated movies of the year, but that doesn’t help us because we need box office figures. We need to prove to the distributors that we can make money from a third and a fourth movie – but because it didn’t do so well, we can’t make another one.
“If you want more than one movie, everyone has to go and see movies at the cinema. It’s all about the numbers in the theatre.”
It’s true that the experience of going to the movies has really sorta gone out the window in the age of the internet. I still like going to the movies – I just went to see Lucy last weekend and really loved it – but it would help if the tickets weren’t fucking $15. No wonder people are getting the movie at home – it’s too damn expensive to go! Sorry, boo – take a cheaper payday and then movie ticket prices can come down and more people would go. She probably wouldn’t want to do that, though.

Guys, 50 Shades of Grey is going to suck so, so bad. Also, Frozen wasn’t all that good and I have no idea why people are going insane over it. It was alright, but I’ve certainly seen better Disney movies and that ‘Let It Go’ song is the bane of my existence. So of course some “fan” with too much time on their hands had to make a mash-up of the two and I’m kinda disgusted.
Did we really need to turn a children’s movie into an adult book/film parody? Are some things not just better off left alone?
I mean, guys… no. Just no.

Taylor Swift took the music world by storm long ago, but now she’s set her sights on the film world, as well. She has a part in the upcoming film release of The Giver, and showed up at the NYC premiere yesterday looking absolutely stunning. However you feel about TSwift, you must admit, she’s a lovely girl who knows how to dress.
I’m not sure what’s happening with Katie Holmes’ outfit, unfortunately, but Taylor’s dress and makeup are flawless.

In case you live under a rock and/or have never used the internet, this past weekend was San Diego Comic-Con, the biggest gathering of nerds in the US of A (and I say that as someone who’s been before and thinks it’s great). Comic-Con tends to get some of the biggest exclusives on new movie releases, and this year was no exception. The first teaser, called “Our Leader the Mockingjay”, was released for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 this weekend, and oh man, I can’t wait for this shit.
Here it is, in all its glory:
What do you think? Have you enjoyed the other movies? Will you see this one?

Ben Affleck is playing Batman and we’re all just going to have to deal with that. Director Zack Snyder, of the upcoming Batman V. Superman posted a tweet featuring a photo of Ben Affleck as Batman, AKA, Batfleck. Accompanying the tweet was simply “#75″. Here it is:
What do we think? There’s not a whole lot to go on. I’m impressed, he definitely looks like Batman, even with his Affleck chin. Does this make you more or less excited for the film?
