Mel Gibson Owes Robert Downey A Favor

When Robert Downey Jr begged Hollywood to forgive Mel Gibson people were torn. Gibson represented a bigoted overlord oppressor type while anyone in the LA area would let Robert Downey cum in their hair just so they could tell their friends they are cool with him. Downey's plea helped as Gibson's pariah status has lessened to the point that most people in the biz will invite him to their Seder should he get a new...

'Iron Man 3' has a trailer

The first trailer for ‘Iron Man 3' was released this morning, but there's no AC/DC or Black Sabbath to party too this time, because things are now looking bleak for Tony Stark for some reason. I however am thrilled, because this is written and directed by the amazingly great Shane Black, who replaces the sort of ok Jon Favreau and the absolutely awful Jennifer Anistons boyfriend. But Stark is very grumpy, and not even...

first pictures of Iron Man 3 villain Iron Patriot/Coldblood 7

Despite their best efforts, Disney can't keep the villains for ‘Iron Man 3' under wraps forever, and I mean that in the literal sense, because here we see James Badge Dale on set as Eric Savin, who for the most part just stood around under a blanket. In the comics, Savin is a soldier who loses both legs to a land mine. Those are replaced with fancy robot legs and he eventually becomes a cyborg mercenary called ...

Robert Downey Jr. will make $50 million for 'Avengers'

When all is said and done, ‘The Avengers' will probably settle in as the third highest grossing movie of all time (after just 19 days it's already number 11 with almost $1.1 billion), above the $1.32 billion the final 'Harry Potter' made, but well below the $2.78 billion for 'Avatar' and the $2.18 billion for 'Titanic'. So it would seem the deal made for Robert Downey Jr. that pays him box-office bonuses and a...

Sherlock Holmes 2 has a new trailer

'Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows' has a new trailer out this morning (HD copies here), and at first it may seem to be the exact same footage as the first trailer in a slightly different order, but actually this shows the movie will feature Rachel McAdams carrying a package and a bulldog that goes "rrr-woof!" That's all I needed to see. Here's my money Warner Brothers!

Friday afternoon headlines

ROBERT DOWNEY JR. - is not happy with his Due Date co-star Zach Galifianakis for the way he handled Mel Gibsons scheduled cameo in Hangover 2. Gibson cast Downey in the Singing Detective when he was at his lowest point back in 2003, right after getting out of jail for drugs. Downey hasn't forgotten this and says Mel deserves another chance too. Is there a movie about gin? He'd be good in that. (e!) NOOMI RAPACE - is...
