Hugh Jackman And Russell Crowe Meeting For Coffee In New York

Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe are headed in two different directions. It shows. Hugh’s got the HGH muscle rip going in his mid 40′s. He’s got that condescending clenched muscle forearm wrapped around Russell Crowe’s fatty tailing career. It this were Spartacus, he’d be driving the sword through Russell’s ruddy flesh, with gallons of blood and angst and margarine spilling everywhere. Consider this the passing of the torch from one silly sounding bearded Oceania action star to another.

Hugh Jackman Is Not Fucking Playing Around

I wouldn’t bring that gay rumor up with Wolverine again by the way. Not in person. Not when he’s flexing at the park with his kids. He looks ready to choke out a second grade field trip. Maybe eat a stroller. Lift a jungle gym off its moorings and heave it to trap a lurking perv. Fuck, he’s got to hold the bench press record among Tony Award winners, by whatever he can lift minus 90 lbs.

its the ‘Movie 43′ red band trailer

By brendon October 03, 2012 @ 1:03 PM

Movie 43’ is actually 25 short films, so it’s not really a movie, or the number 43, but it stars essentially everyone with a SAG card, including Halle Berry, Emma Stone, Anna Faris, Hugh Jackman, Kate Winslet, Naomi Watts, Chloë Grace Moretz, Gerard Butler as a leprechaun, Stephen Merchant, Kate Bosworth and Elizabeth Banks, and they all do horrible things. Except for Emma Stone sucking off a hobo disguised as a wizard. If Kieran Culkin has a better plan to get magic beans, I’d love to hear it. It’s easy to sit back and criticize after the fact Kieran.

(clip might be nsfw due to a brief clip of tits and naomi watts calling her son a fuckface among other things. your call.)

Wolverine has been doing P90X

By brendon September 24, 2012 @ 5:34 PM


At one point, ‘the Wolverine‘ was all set to film with the great Darren Aronofsky directing a script by the great Christopher McQuarrie, based on a story by the great Frank Miller. But that all went to hell, and then Fox decided it should be re-written by the sort of ok Mark Bomback and directed by the not good James Mangold.

So that’s what’s happening now, and today Fox released the first official picture. It promises a Wolverine movie that will probably be terrible (again) and make me feel fat and inadequate if I watch it with my girlfriend. Needless to say I can’t wait.

Hugh Jackman is a tough dad

By brendon August 01, 2011 @ 12:52 PM


Hugh Jackman spent the weekend with his kids in St. Tropez, France, but what started as a fun day at the beach quickly turned ugly. As these shocking pictures clearly show, first he kicked his little girl in the face, probably because she violated one of his many strict rules. Then he dragged her into the deeper water, presumably to hold her under for up to 2 minutes at a time.

God damn you Hugh Jackman! She’s just a little girl, leave her alone!

Duncan Jones might direct Wolverine

By brendon April 11, 2011 @ 3:43 PM

Duncan Jones (who if you don’t know is the son of David Bowie) is the director of the completely awesome Moon and the sort of awesome Source Code, and now he’s also apparently Fox’s choice to direct the sequel to Wolverine, the job Darren Aronofsky took and then untook last month. And as you can see in the interview that IGN did with him today, Jones is interested, comparing the potential of the story to what Christopher Nolan did with Batman.

So this is obviously fantastic news. Jones is great. Fox should hire him immediately. His movie would be better than the first Wolverine even if he made it while facing the other direction and with the camera upside down.
