Amanda Seyfried – “While We’re Young” New York premiere

“While We’re Young” New York premiere at the Paris Theater on March 23, 2015 in New York City

Normally I post pictures that, at least in some way, I like.  This time it’s a little different.  When Kaley Cuoco cut off so much of her beautiful, long blond hair a lot of people were shocked.  Many said – and are still saying – “What was she thinking?”   I don’t mind Kaley’s change of hairstyles – then again, she’s one of my top favorites so I may be more forgiving than many.  After all, she still has that incredible figure…

Amanda’s hairstyle choice made me wonder, “What was she thinking?”  I really don’t like it much at all.  She’s a beautiful woman, and I like her.  Yes – everybody has the right to make changes as they go along.

In Amanda’s case, however, the new hairstyle reminds me of a Mohawk cut – and to my mind, that’s not a step forward.  She’s still beautiful but this change in her appearance was really not her finest choice.  In addition, another unfortunate choice is her eye makeup selection.  Is she purposely trying to be dramatic?  Did she go to Bai Ling’s tactical makeup squad and opt for their “Raccoon Chic” line of products?

One last thing – unless she’s purposely trying to cultivate a Victoria Beckham-like air of aloofness, and she’s trying to force you to think “High fashion!” whenever you see her, she has a sort of scowl in many of the photos from this event.  Another possibility is, of course, that she really isn’t happy.  Which is it?  I guess we can all decide for ourselves.

Cory Monteith’s final film “McCanick” opens in theaters to mostly negative reviews

McCanick – Cory Monteith’s final film, opened in theaters yesterday, to mostly negative reviews.  The film, directed by Josh C. Waller, stars David Morse (as title cop McCanick) Monteith (as Simon Weeks) and Ciarán Hinds, has been called, by outlets such as the New York Times, The Los Angeles Times and Variety as “dour,” “derivative,” “thin,” “clicheed” (including a subway door closing just in time) and “implausible.”

That’s too bad.  While I was no fan of his and when he died I thought he was given too much undeserved tribute for what accomplishments he did have, I wouldn’t have been averse to seeing his last movie role end up as part of a better final product.

According to IMDb:

When narcotics detective Eugene “Mack” McCanick discovers that Simon Weeks has been released from prison, he instigates a brutal manhunt, without permission from the Chief of Police. The frenzy of paranoia and violence that follows pushes Mack and his partner to the edge of the law. The closer Mack gets to his prey, the closer he gets to a secret from his past-one that only Weeks can expose.

It is anticipated that the film will enjoy limited theater release; even the most generous reviews suggest that the movie will only be sought out by Monteith fans eager to have one final memory of the late star.  It’s a pity that this final impression will apparently not be delivered by way of a better vehicle.

“Star Wars VII” to be set 30 years after “Return of the Jedi “

Star Wars fans, listen to this – the next installment in the “Star Wars” series will be set 30 years after the events of “Return of the Jedi.” This news was announced by Walt Disney Company’s CEO Bob Iger on Tuesday (March 18) in Portland, Oregon at the company’s annual shateholder’s meeting.

The movie will be filmed at the renowned Elstree Studios in Bristol , England. (Bear in mind, Darth Vader was played by Bristol native David Prowse.) “Episode VII” will be released on December 18, 2015 and will be directed by J. J. Abram, who also led the recent “Star Trek” series films.

In 2012 Disney purchased LucasFilm, the Star Wars production company, for $4.05 billion and said that it would release three more films in the popular franchise.

Aside from saying that R2D2 (played by R2D2) would return Iger said, “There will be some very familiar faces along with a trio of new young leads.” Of course, there’s a lot of speculation that the returning veterans would be Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Princess Leia.

Rumors have been circulating for a year regarding the possible return of Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher. The current feeling is leaning towards Oscar-winner Lupita Nyong’o and “Girls” actor Adam Driver.

Now would be the perfect time for the film’s creative leaders and casting team to find a way to find roles Lucy Liu. I think she’d be a perfect fit here. Of course, I always think that.

Lady Gaga Rumored To Have Hired New BFF Lindsay Lohan to Appear in Gaga’s Next Music Video

LiLo and Gaga recently caused an internet uproar when they began casually tweeting each other, revealing that they’d begun hanging out together.  Now rumors are flying that the duo will work together in Gaga’s next video which will most likely be an offshoot from her 3rd studio release album, ARTPOP.   A source close to Gaga reportedly denied the rumor  saying, “Lady Gaga’s not shooting a music video at this time”. Wondering if it’s all just a publicity stunt?  Check out this photo from littlemonsters.com posted late last month.  Lohan and Gaga were reported to have booked a room at exclusive Chateau Marmont Hotel in West Hollywood where they ‘watched old movies and played board games at a slumber party’.  Hmmm, I wonder what game(s) they played?

Is LiLo finally getting her act together? She will play Elizabeth Taylor in the upcoming Lifetime movie, Liz & Dick, due to air in the fall.  She just wrapped production on Canyons in which she plays opposite porn star, James Deen, scheduled to be released sometime in 2013.  Lohan has also landed a role yet to be defined in Scary Movie 5 with Charlie Sheen and Ashley Tisdale (Tisdale replaced Anna Faris who starred in the first 4 installments) scheduled for release on January 11, 2013.   It all looks pretty good on paper and we at The Daily Fix wish her well but we’re going to wait until the ink is dry.

Ted – The Movie, Can’t Wait!

Click here to view the embedded video.

Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane writes, directs and voices the main character of his first feature film, ‘Ted’.  It’s the story of John Bennett (Mark Wahlberg), a grown man who must deal with the cherished teddy bear who came to life as the result of a childhood wish…and has refused to leave his side ever since.

Watch the preview and even though it’s got a fuzzy bear in the movie it’s definitely not one for the kids!

The Hunger Games Dominates the Box Office!

It’s no surprise that The Hunger Games beat its competition Friday, but it is a little surprising just how well the movie did do. In its first 24 hours of release the movie raked in $68.3 million! That puts it at 5th place on the all-time single day revenue chart. However, it ranks first for all non-sequels. That’s right; The Hunger Games is at the top spot for opening day for all non-sequels, pretty insane right?

But get this, it gets even more insane! The Hunger Games is the only non-sequel to even place in the top 10 opening days. Take a look at the list below…

  1. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, $91.1 million
  2. The Twilight Saga: New Moon, $72.7 million
  3. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1, $71.6 million
  4. The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, $68.5 million
  5. The Hunger Games, $68.3 million
  6. The Dark Knight, $67.2 million
  7. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, $62 million
  8. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1, $61.7 million
  9. Spider-Man 3, $60 million
  10. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, $58.2 million

The Hunger Games is doing extremely well and one would have to think the next movie in the series will only top this opening day. Could it make a run at Harry Potter’s $91.1 million? Only time will tell. But if any movie has a shot, it’s this one.

Did any of you fight the crowds and see The Hunger Games this weekend? Was it worth it? Let us know in the comments below… The Hunger Games Dominates the Box Office! The Hunger Games Dominates the Box Office! The Hunger Games Dominates the Box Office!

 

The Hangover II Teaser Trailer

Here’s the first teaser trailer for the followup to the 2009 mega-hit comedy The Hangover. The three hapless amigos are back, The Wolf Pack if you will, though they’ve swapped Las Vegas for Thailand and a menacing tiger for a cute little monkey. And a funny hat! The costume designer should be nominated for an Oscar based solely on what I see of Galifinakis’s outfit in the still above.

All I really need to know is whether Ken Jeong returns. If, in fact, he is in the sequel, kudos to the producers for not giving that away. But still, is he? *Heads over to IMDB* OK yeah, producers did actually give it away, he is listed there. Sweet.

 

An Epic Compilation of 270 Movies Released in 2010

Didn’t get to the movies much this year? Don’t worry about it pal. Just take a few minutes and watch this very well-done cut of 270 movies that came out in 2010, all crammed into a neat 6 minute package. What freaks me out is that I’ve seen about 80% of them  and only 1% were actually worth watching. So I think I’d rather just watch movie montages like this from now on. It compliment­s my modern media conditione­d, short attention span.

The real question is what the total budget was for all of those films combined. I’m putting $50 on it being a tiny bit more than $170,000.
