Jimmy Fallon engendered a lot of good will during his time hosting Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, and it looks like that will carry over to his new gig hosting The Tonight Show.  It feels like a fresh start that has a good chance of luring a younger audience, or at least an audience that will likely tune in to check out clips the following morning.  For example, during last night’s show, Fallon was welcomed by a string of cameos including Robert De Niro, Tina Fey, Seth Rogen, and most notably, Joan Rivers, who was banned by Johnny Carson from The Tonight Show in 1986.  Fallon also had a fun bit where he and Will Smith showed off the Evolution of Hip-Hop Dancing.

Full Trailer for Paul Schrader’s THE CANYONS Starring Lindsay Lohan and James Deen; Plus New NSFW Images

by     Posted 1 year, 83 days ago

the-canyons-lindsay-lohan-slice

IFC Films has released the first official trailer for director Paul Schrader’s (American Gigolo) new film The Canyons.  Written by Bret Easton Ellis (American Psycho), the film centers on the relationship between a wealthy movie producer and his girlfriend, who’s having an affair with an actor from her past.  Lindsay Lohan plays the girlfriend, while porn actor James Deen is the film’s male lead.  The trailer is pretty much what you’d expect from a Lindsay Lohan movie written by Bret Easton Ellis, as we see glimpses of sex, barely-clothed men, and, of course, a cameo by Gus Van Sant.  While Lohan showed promise all those years ago, her performance appears to be DOA in The Canyons.  I’m not really sure who the audience for this movie is, but I assume one exists.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer for yourself and to check out some NSFW images from the pic.  The film also stars Nolan Gerard Funk and Amanda Brooks. The Canyons will be available in limited release and on VOD and iTunes on August 2nd.

New Trailer and Poster for SCARY MOVIE 5

Fifth time’s the charm?  Well, maybe not.  The new trailer and poster for Scary Movie 5 have just been released, and it definitely begs the question as to why this franchise is even continuing.  It does try to remain current with this new trailer, now lampooning Mama and Evil Dead in addition to the first trailer’s parodies of Black Swan, Inception, and Paranormal Activity.  The new poster is in a similar vein to previous ones, but is definitely relying heavily on the recent success of Mama and the good word-of-mouth for Evil Dead to draw in an audience.  I honestly don’t think there was ever a point in continuing this series, especially without Anna Faris or Regina Hall, who made it through the first four movies and were always at least moderately funny.  The new cast includes Simon Rex (returning but as a new character), Ashley Tisdale, Heather Locklear, Katt Williams, Sarah Hyland, and cameos from Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan.

Hit the jump for the new trailer and poster.  Scary Movie 5 opens on April 12.

Those looking forward to the train wreck that is The Canyons will get their chance to see the film this summer.  IFC Films has announced that it has acquired director Paul Schreader’s erotic drama for release sometime this summer.  The controversial film was written by Bret Easton Ellis and picked up considerable notice for its troubled production, mostly due to star Lindsay Lohan.  The actress appears opposite porn star James Deen in the pic, which centers on the relationship between a scheming and wealthy movie producer (Deen) and his girlfriend (Lohan), who’s having an affair with an actor from her past.  IFC will release the film day-and-date sometime this summer on digital platforms and in theaters.  Hit the jump to read the press release.

Lindsay Lohan Gets Assaulted by James Deen in First Clip from THE CANYONS

If you’ve ever been frustrated with Lindsay Lohan (Mean Girls) to the point that you just wished someone would scare some sense into her, James Deen is about to become your hero (if he wasn’t already).  We’d previously seen a series of parody trailers for director Paul Schrader’s erotic LA drama The Canyons, but now the first clip is available. In it, Lohan wanders about the apartment for a few minutes while Deen is sleeping peacefully.  Two guesses on who acts their part the best.  Hit the jump to watch the clip.

First Trailer for SCARY MOVIE 5 Takes on PARANORMAL ACTIVITY, BLACK SWAN, and INCEPTION

Unfortunately, the first trailer for Dimension Films’ horror comedy spoof Scary Movie 5 has been released.  Everything about this is terrible, as the trailer highlights the film’s awful, unfunny acting, annoying overuse of clichés, and abundance of physical “comedy.”  The trailer also uses Danny Elfman’s swell score from Beetlejuice, which is offensive to Elfman, Beetlejuice, and good movies in general.  The only familiar face here from the previous films is Simon Rex, and the series actually feels pretty outdated.  Scary Movie 5 spoofs films like Black Swan and Inception, which just seems old at this point.  The pic also takes on the Paranormal Activity franchise, but Scary Movie creator Marlon Wayans has his own PA spoof called A Haunted House set for release in January.  Having now seen trailers for both films, I feel confident in saying that A Haunted House will look like Citizen Kane compared to Scary Movie 5.

We’ve got some new posters to share from the American Film Market (AFM).  Briefly:

  • Tarzan – A really poorly-made motion capture animated retelling of the classic story.
  • InAPPropriate Comedy – A seriously terrible-looking “comedy” that tells the story of a computer tablet “full of the world’s most hilariously offensive apps” that sitrs up cultural anarchy.  The pitiful cast includes Adrien Brody, Rob Schneider, Michelle Rodriguez, and Lindsay Lohan.
  • Ip Man: The Final Fight – The next film in the martial arts franchise.
  • Switch – An action drama set within the world of art thieving.

First Trailer for THE CANYONS Starring Lindsay Lohan, Porn Star James Deen and Gus Van Sant

the-canyons-trailer-slice

The first trailer has gone online for director Paul Schrader’s sexualized indie thriller, The Canyons.  Starring Lindsay Lohan, porn star James Deen and Gus Van Sant (really), The Canyons spins a tale on the dangers of sexual obsession and ambition among a group of twenty-somethings and a chance event that unravels all of their lives.  The trailer, presented in a grindhouse aesthetic with appropriate music and filters applied, introduces us to the characters and a sense of danger in the film, but gives little in the way of plot.  The Canyons, written by Bret Easton Ellis (American Psycho) also stars Nolan Funk and Amanda Brooks.  Hit the jump to check out the trailer.

Scary Movie 5 is a thing that’s happening, and in an effort to make the film as widely unappealing as possible, its “big celebrity cameo” is a sex scene between Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan.  Dimension Films describes their opening scene as “outrageous, sexy and hilarious,” to which I say “No thanks.”  Malcom D. Lee (Undercover Brother) takes over directing duties for this fifth installment of the franchise with Ashley Tisdale onboard as the film’s lead.

Hit the jump to check out the image of Sheen and Lohan trying to be relevant.  Scary Movie 5 opens on April 19th, 2013.

New Images From the Elizabeth Taylor Biopic LIZ & DICK, Starring Lindsay Lohan

Though Lindsay Lohan (Mean Girls) was a much-maligned choice to portray Elizabeth Taylor in her upcoming Lifetime biography, new photos from the production seem to suggest the troubled young actress may actually be a decent stand-in for Taylor.

Liz & Dick chronicles the love affair between Elizabeth Taylor (Lohan) and Richard Burton (Grant Bowler) from their brief initial encounter at a 1954 pool party to their collaboration (of all sorts) on the set of 1963′s Cleopatra, through their tempestuous relationship all the way until Burton’s death in 1984.  Hit the jump for the photos and more on the production.

Casting Call: Lindsay Lohan to Star Opposite Porn Star in Bret Easton Ellis’ THE CANYONS; Debbie Reynolds Joins Liberace Movie BEHIND THE CANDLEABRA

by     Posted 2 years, 110 days ago

debbie-reynolds-lindsay-lohan-slice

We’ve got a couple of casting stories to share this afternoon.  First up, Lindsay Lohan has joined director Paul Schrader’s indie sexual thriller The Canyons.  The script was written by American Psycho author Bret Easton Ellis and the early logline states that the film centers on a group of students who are trapped in shark-infested waters by a lunatic.  Ellis broke the news of Lohan’s involvement via Twitter, and THR confirms that she’s in talks to star opposite porn star James Deen.

The report has a slightly different synopsis than the shark-centered one, as THR says it follows sex and crime among a group of young twentysomethings in Los Angeles.  Deen will be playing “a manipulative trust-fund kid with dreams of making a movie” and Lohan plays his materialist girlfriend.  Hit the jump for news concerning Steven Soderbergh’s Liberace biopic Behind the Candleabra.

In case you hadn’t heard, Lindsay Lohan is getting all serious on us and is starring in a super distinguished biopic of Elizabeth Taylor called Liz & Dick…..for Lifetime.  Yes, the life story of legendary actress Elizabeth Taylor will be immortalized as a Lifetime Movie starring Lindsay Lohan.  The first images of Lohan as Taylor and Grant Bowler as Taylor’s lover/husband Richard Burton.  Lohan really doesn’t look anything like Taylor, but I guess we should all just be happy that she actually showed up on set like a professional.

Whoopi Goldberg and Lindsay Lohan to Guest Star on GLEE

With Smash making me feel less insecure about watching a musical TV series, since it’s much more mature and adult-oriented, I’ve basically only given Glee a small amount of attention and not much thought. However, some new guest stars should make for an interesting turn this season. TV Line has two different reports that reveal both Whoopi Goldberg and Lindsay Lohan will show up on the series before the third season ends.

Lindsay Lohan to Host SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE on March 3rd

by     Posted 2 years, 223 days ago

snl-lindsay-lohan-slice

That’s right, folks. Despite the fact that Lindsay Lohan has nothing to promote and the troubled actress really doesn’t have much of a career beyond some risque photo-shoots showing up on the internet every couple weeks, the Freaky Friday and Mean Girls star is set to host Saturday Night Live on March 3rd with musical guest Jack White, making his debut as a solo artist outside of his work with The White Stripes and The Raconteurs.

NBC announced the news during a commercial break on this past weekend’s SNL with host Maya Rudolph, and while we’re not sure how the new episode with Lohan is going to turn out (or if people even care anymore), last weekend’s episode was an absolute laugh riot. Not only did it mark the return of SNL veteran Rudolph as host, but Justin Timberlake, Amy Poehler (on both Weekend Update and a Bronx Beat sketch), Bill O’Reilly and Kate Upton all made surprise appearances, and you can check out those and a few of our favorites sketches from the show after the jump.
