Simon Pegg and Nick Frost ("Hot Fuzz," "Shaun of the Dead") reunite for the comedy adventure "Paul" as two sci-fi geeks whose pilgrimage takes them to America's UFO heartland. While there, they accidentally meet an alien who brings them on an insane road trip that alters their universe forever.

For the past 60 years, an alien named Paul (voiced by Seth Rogen) has been hanging out at a top-secret military base. For reasons unknown, the space-traveling smart ass decides to escape the compound and hop on the first vehicle out of town -- a rented RV containing Earthlings Graeme Willy (Pegg) and Clive Collings (Frost).

Chased by federal agents and the fanatical father of a young woman that they accidentally kidnap, Graeme and Clive hatch a fumbling escape plan to return Paul to his mother ship. And as two nerds struggle to help, one little green man might just take his fellow outcasts from misfits to intergalactic heroes.

Paul opens in Ireland and the UK in February and a month later on March 18, 2011 for the U.S.

R.I.P Blake Edwards

1922 – 2010

Blake Edwards has died in southern California at the age of 88. Edwards died of complications from pneumonia on Wednesday at St John's Health Centre in Santa Monica, his publicist said.

His wife, the actress Julie Andrews, and other members of his family were at his side, Gene Schwam added.

Among the films Edwards directed were The Pink Panther, Breakfast at Tiffany's, Victor/Victoria and 10. He never won an Academy Award for any of his films, but was given an honorary Oscar in 2004 for his "extraordinary body of work".

One of Hollywood's most successful specialists in comedy, Edwards was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1922 and started out as an actor. After appearing in about 30 films, he worked as a TV scriptwriter before becoming a director.

His first significant success came with the 1959 film Operation Petticoat, starring Cary Grant and Tony Curtis. He then charmed audiences with his adaptation of Truman Capote's Breakfast at Tiffany's, which gave Audrey Hepburn one of her most memorable roles.

In 1963, Edwards created one of film comedy's classic characters in The Pink Panther. After Peter Ustinov dropped out, Edwards persuaded Peter Sellers to play the accident-prone Inspector Clouseau.

His last major success came in 1982 with Victor/Victoria, a musical comedy that saw Julie Andrews play a woman who pretends to be a man masquerading as a woman.

Updated: Jon Favreau Leaves 'Iron Man 3'

UPDATE: Jon Favreau has confrimed via his twitter that he will not be returning for the third movie.
"It's true, I'm directing Magic Kingdom, not Iron Man 3. I've had a great run with Marvel and wish them the best."
Favreau also spoke to the LA Times about his decision to leave Iron Man behind:
“Marvel and I both came of age together,” Favreau said. “The years that we shared were a pivotal experience. Kevin has a firm grasp on the many franchises and how they all interweave and I am happy that I had the opportunity to establish the world that these characters can now play in…. ‘Iron Man’ has given me tremendous opportunities and Kevin and I are enjoying a lot of momentum in our careers thanks to the ‘Iron Man’ films. I look forward to seeing what others can do playing in the same world.”
Favreau is now set to direct Disney's 'Magic Kingdom,' for which he has this to say on the project:
“Between the theme parks and the movies, the Disney iconography was probably the first set of archetypes that I was exposed to,” Favreau said of his youth in Flushing, N.Y. “Walt was able to expose me as a child to the full array of emotions, including fear and sorrow. Those movies and attractions haunted my dreams and made a deep impression on me as a child. When I first heard about the ['Magic Kingdom' film] project, I was on my way to visit Disneyland with my family. I took notes and had no problem filling a book with all the ideas that this concept offered, even on first blush. Since then, I was lucky enough to be given a tour of Imagineering by Tony Baxter, who knows just about everything there is to know about Disneyland. He pulled original concept art from the archives for me and exposed me to Walt’s original vision.”
Vulture reports that Jon Favreau has just informed Marvel Studios that he won't direct a third Iron Man film.

Vulture sites an informed source as saying Favreau was frustrated with Marvel wanting to include more and more of their characters into the Iron Man series, especially in the wake of Iron Man's role in The Avengers.

Marvel is now beginning the process of finding a director to replace Favreau, whoever is picked will have to be okayed by Robert Downey Jr., who has contractual approval over the director of the film. Favreau's next project will be the studio's Magic Kingdom, about a family trapped in Disneyland and their magical encounters with all sorts of Disney attractions and rides.

'The Fighter' Trailer #3

Third trailer for David O'Russell's 'The Fighter,' starring Mark Wahlberg, Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Melissa Leo, Jack McGee

Dicky Ecklund (CHRISTIAN BALE) is a former boxing legend that squandered his talents and threw away his shot at greatness. Micky Ward (MARK WAHLBERG), his half brother, is the struggling journeyman boxer who spent his life living in his big brother’s shadow.

The Fighter is the inspirational, true story of these two brothers who, against all the odds, come together to train for a historic title bout that will unite their fractured family, redeem their pasts and, at last, give their hard-luck town what it’s been waiting for: pride. The story unfolds on the gritty, blue-collar streets of Lowell, Mass, where Dicky was once known as “The Pride of Lowell” having gone the distance with the world champion Sugar Ray Leonard. However, after losing that fight, like the town of Lowell, Dicky’s fallen on hard times. His boxing days are behind him and his life has become shattered by drug abuse.

Younger brother Micky, meanwhile, has become the family’s fighter and fading hope for a champion. But despite all of his work, Micky’s career is failing and he loses fight after punishing fight. Dicky and Micky’s tougher-than-nails mother, Alice (MELISSA LEO),manages his career and Dicky serves as his highly unreliable trainer. When Micky’s latest fight nearly kills him, it looks like it could all be over – until his iron-willed new girlfriend, Charlene (AMY ADAMS), convinces him to do the unthinkable: split with his family, pursue his own interests and train without his increasingly volatile and criminal brother.

Now Micky has the chance of a lifetime as he earns a shot at the World Championship. But when his brother and dysfunctional family reenter his life, they must all reconcile their pasts and become more than just a family in name. With Micky and Dicky reunited, this becomes more than just a fight – it’s an all-out comeback for these brothers, their family, and their city. When it’s over, Micky will have become a World Champion, a Hall of Fame legend, and the new “Pride of Lowell”. The Fighter is a moving and often humorous drama about fighting for the people you love.
It has a December 10, 2010 (limited; wide release: Dec. 17) in the States and 4th February, 2011 release for us in Ireland and the UK.

Nicolas Cage Talks 'Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance'

Nicolas Cage has spoken to I09 about suiting up once again as Johnny Blaze in 'Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance:'
We're very excited for the new Ghost Rider film, where will the audience find (your character) Johnny Blaze in the next film?

He's become a lot more sarcastic, now that his head has been ignited. Unlike the first one where he was trying to keep it at bay. Now he's been living with the Ghost Rider for some time, there's a lot more irony with the character. His outlook isn't as quite naive as it once was. And also I'm very excited about what we're getting up to with Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor [the directors], they are very original in terms of their film making. Mark is doing things I've never seen a director do before — filming on roller blades, hanging on wires — it's like a stunt man, camera operator and director all in one. Brian Taylor is really so knowledgeable about film. In the same conversation, in the same sentence even, I can talk about Michael Powell's Peeping Tom and then go into Ishirô Honda's The War of the Gargantuas. He's the reason why I'm playing the Ghost Rider as well. He really was an advocate of that, and inspired me to take that on. As a result of that we're getting into some really abstract stuff that I think will mess with people's minds. I'm really looking forward to it.

Those two are exceptionally original. How else are they changing the tone of the first film, is it even similar to the original?

It is a completely different film. The first one, which I won't denigrate — I liked the first one, but it was almost like a fairy tale. Almost like a Disney fairy tale interpretation of Faust. This one is completely re-conceived, it's not even connected to the first one, it's a different origin sequence. But I think it will be a brand new experience. It has more adrenaline involved in the film making process itself, and in the movie when you see it. Again, I think the stuff we're able to get into with Ghost Rider is going to be a lot more abstract and not like anything you've seen before. So I'm very excited by it.

UPDATED: Bond 23 Is Confirmed, Daniel Craig Back As 007

David Arnold, who has composed the music for the last five James Bond films, has confirmed the news that Bond 23 is back with Daniel Craig reprising his 007 status. He told Film Music Magazine:
I haven't thought about it yet. We only just got the news that we're back on. But 'there’s many a slip twixt cup and lip' So I will keep quiet until I get a script and then start writing ideas. I just hope the next one is as good as my favorites, as I think everyone does. And I'm always interested in what Daniel Craig brings to the part. But like most things with movies, if it ain't on the page etc… All I can say is that I'm looking forward to a great script for it, alongside every other Bond fan in the world!
UPDATE: Kate Winslet told the mail, that Sam Mendes is still on board to direct Bond 23:
"Sam is doing the next Bond film, all being well, and we'll all be in England if that happens," she said. "It's such a massive commitment for him and it's not fair for him to commute backwards and ­forwards to New York from ­London. It would be impossible. The children will be there with me."

Updated: 'Black Swan' Clips, Featurettes And New Trailer

Nine clips from Darren Aronofsky's 'Black Swan,' starring Natalie Portman, Vincent Cassel, Mila Kunis, Barbara Hershey and Winona Ryder.

'Black Swan' follows the story of Nina (Portman), a ballerina in a New York City ballet company whose life, like all those in her profession, is completely consumed with dance. She lives with her retired ballerina mother Erica (Barbara Hershey) who zealously supports her daughter's professional ambition. When artistic director Thomas Leroy (Vincent Cassel) decides to replace prima ballerina Beth MacIntyre (Winona Ryder) for the opening production of their new season, Swan Lake, Nina is his first choice. But Nina has competition: a new dancer, Lily (Kunis), who impresses Leroy as well. Swan Lake requires a dancer who can play both the White Swan with innocence and grace, and the Black Swan, who represents guile and sensuality. Nina fits the White Swan role perfectly but Lily is the personification of the Black Swan. As the two young dancers expand their rivalry into a twisted friendship, Nina begins to get more in touch with her dark side with a recklessness that threatens to destroy her.
