IRON MAN 2
Dark Horizons (via Sci Fi Wire) talked with actor Sam Rockwell about his upcoming films. On the subject of the Justin Hammer character in “Iron Man 2,” he said, “He’;s kind of more of the plucky comic relief, but he’s got a little bit of an edge. He’s a little pissed off.” He then mentioned the character has some similarity to Salieri in “Amadeus,” a man who lives in the shadow of Mozart and attempts to foil him. “He’s a little more Salieri than he is the plucky comic relief, but Mickey Rourke is really the bad guy,” says Rockwell.
Starring Robert Downey Jr., release date: May 7th, 2010
JUSTICE LEAGUE: CRISIS ON TWO EARTHS
IESB has an interview with actor Chris Noth, who voices the alternate Lex Luthor in the upcoming DC Animated direct to video feature. “I was extremely excited to be playing the ultimate villain from my youth. I remember how Gene Hackman portayed Lex Luthor with such great delight in the films, and I thought I’d be getting that Lex,” says Noth, “So I was surprised to see that in this script, Lex is actually on the right side of the law. It required a whole new thinking on my part on how to approach him. I mean, he’s a super hero who’s in this very complex, parallel universe. He’s actually trying to save all of reality from being destroyed.”
Release date: February 23, 2010

IESB spoke with actor Jeff Bridges about his upcoming film, “Crazy Heart.” They also took time to ask about “Tron.” The actor says the first “Tron,” which was shot on empty black sets, allowed him to get back to the “kids pretending” aspect of acting. “The same goes with the sequel, except that all the technology that we’re using in that makes the old one look like an old black and white TV show or something. Gosh, it’s amazing what they’ve got going on this. I can’t wait to see it all pasted together,” says Bridges.
Release date: December 17th, 2010
MYSTERIES AND DELIVERIES
For the last few days, I’ve been waiting for a copy of Mystery Science Theater 3000 XVI to arrive. The package is finally showing up in USPS’s tracking system. I guess it was misplaced in a warehouse. I’ve never had this happen before in December, but I understand it is a common thing to see deliveries slow to a crawl in the holiday shopping season. Meanwhile, if any of you in the great, wide Internet discover something awesome, disheartening, let us know! Take credit, come up with a clever nickname, or go anonymous. The choice is yours. Fresh rumors and movie news every weekday morning. I am Erik Amaya bracing for the future threat of filing a complaint.
