Watch It!: Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis Interviews Charlize Theron

8 09 2009

Between two Ferns

Everyone found out about the awesomeness that is Zach Galifianakis when they went to see The Hangover this summer, but even before that he started a series on Funny or Die called Between Two Ferns in which he performs the most awkward interviews you will find on the internet. Think “The Chris Farley Show” from SNL that allows cursing and instead of the host being in love with the subject, he can’t stand them. He has done six  episodes so far with actors like Michael Cera, Jon Hamm, and Natalie Portman, and today he has brought the beautiful Charlize Theron in and it is amazing for three reasons:

1)  Charlize Theron is super hot.

2)  Skinny dipping at wet thighs are discussed.

3) Charlize Theron is super hot.

Five New Clips From The Road

3 09 2009

The Road

Everyone feels differently about clips.  On the one hand, they will always give the viewer a better sense of the movie than the trailer, which, sometimes, can be misleading (I will never forgive the editors of the Jarhead trailer). On the other, depending on how long the clips are and how they are presented, you may find yourself sitting in the theater wanting the movie to just move along to the new stuff that you haven’t seen.

That said, the ever wonderful TrailerAddict has put up five new clips from The Road, starring Viggo Mortensen and Charlize Theron, based on the post-apocalyptic novel by Cormac McCarthy. The longest of the clips runs for only 3:20 (Never Killed A Man) and don’t contain any spoilers or even any plot points. What they do accomplish is setting up the feel of the movie, which, if the book is any indication, is chock full of silent tension, and character  development. Here is your Geek on Film reccomendation: put that Negative Nancy side of your brain to rest for ten minutes and watch the clips after the jump. You’ll be glad you did.

Poster: Astro Boy

Astro Boy clip

Them folks over at Cinematical have posted this new poster for the new Astro Boy movie starring Freddie Highmore, Nicolas Cage, Kristen Bell, Charlize Theron, Samuel L. Jackson, and Bill Nighy. As you will see in the poster, Astro Boy isn’t so much a robot-boy-superhero as much as he is a coward with weird looking friends who flies away from danger at all costs. You may ask, if he’s a coward, why isn’t he crying? Duh, he’s a robot. Full poster after the jump. Read the rest of this entry »

Worthington in Talks to Star in French Thriller Remake

4 08 2009

The Tourist

Coming off his performance as Marcus Wright in Terminator Salvation and his work with Jim Cameron on Avatar, Australian born actor Sam Worthington is in talks to join Charlize Theron in The Tourist, a remake of the 2005 French thriller Anthony Zimmer, starring Sophie Marceau and Yvan Attal. The film will be directed by Bharat Nalluri, a British television director who has worked on shows such as Spooks, Hustle, and Life on Mars. Variety reports:

Theron became attached last fall to play a female Interpol agent who uses an American tourist in an attempt to flush out an elusive criminal who was once her lover. Worthington came into the loop after Tom Cruise dropped out.

…Cruise’s consideration definitely stalled the momentum of “The Tourist,” which Spyglass originally had hoped to put into production last March. Theron’s presence kept it viable, though, and it is back on the fast track with Worthington.

Production is scheduled to begin in early 2010 under a partnership by Spyglass and Studio Canal.
