Wesley snipes to reprise blade in blade 4!!|
By Jumpoff21 - 17 hours ago
Ok take this with a grain of salt but....
Actor Wesley Snipes is reportedly set to reprise his role as vampire hunter Blade in a fourth instalment of the franchise.
The "Expendables 3" star will net a $3 million paycheck for his return to the film series, according to the New York Daily News.
Snipes recently spoke about his desire to return to the franchise, telling MTV.com, "I'd be open to it. I think we've got some stones left unturned and there's some latitude left for us to build on and I'd love to get back in the suit again and do some things I've learned how to do now that I didn't know how to do then."
The 52-year-old previously played the character in 1998's Blade, 2002's "Blade II" and 2004's "Blade: Trinity."

'Guardians Of The Galaxy Is Better Then The Avengers... Best Marvel Movie' - Robert Downey Jr.|
By TRILL SH1T - 17 hours ago
Usually when an actor calls a movie great, they're talking about one they're in. So, of course, you take it with a grain of salt. But surprisingly, Robert Downey Jr., of all people, said Guardians of the Galaxy is the best Marvel movie. And if he's willing to throw aside his ego that's as strong as Iron Man, we're willing to believe him.
can't say he's wrong, nor can I say I totally agree :shrug:

Actors Who Turned Down Very Famous Roles Pt 2|
By MGz - 17 hours ago
Who: Jack Nicholson
Role: Michael Corleone
Movie: "The Godfather"
While casting the now-classic mafia film in 1972, Paramount reportedly thought the project was a risky venture and wanted an established star to play the lead. Apart from Nicholson, Warren Beatty, Robert Redford, Ryan O'Neal, and Dustin Hoffman were offered the role, but they each declined. The part went to Al Pacino, and became one of the best performances in movie history.
Who: John Travolta
Role: Forrest Gump
Movie: "Forrest Gump"
In 1994, "Forrest Gump" became the highest grossing movie in North America, and Tom Hanks nabbed the Oscar for his portrayal of the unique character that year. However, Hanks wasn't the studio's first choice for the role—John Travolta was, followed by Bill Murray and Chevy Chase. Travolta has since admitted that passing on the part was a mistake.
Who: Bette Midler
Role: Delores Van Cartier/Sister Mary Clarence
Movie: "Sister Act"
There's no doubt that Bette Midler—a muscal theater vet and overall iconic performer—would have been perfect for the role that eventually went to Whoopi Goldberg, and producers of "Sister Act" agreed. However, Midler decided to pass on the part of the Las Vegas showgirl hiding out in a convent due to concerns about her fans reacting badly to her playing a nun. Let us be the first to break the news, Bette: The character isn't really a nun.
Who: Jim Carrey
Role: Edward Scissorhands
Movie: "Edward Scissorhands"
After becoming fairly well-known as a player in "In Living Color," Carrey started being considred for some major movie roles, including the title role in "Edward Scissorhands." According to Splitsider, Carrey lacked experience as a dramatic actor during this period, so his turn as Scissorhands would have likely been more comedic than Depp's and could have jeopardized the project. Incidentially, Robert Downey Jr. and Tom Cruise were also considered for the role.
Who: Johnny Depp
Role: Ferris Bueller
Movie: "Ferris Bueller's Day Off"
It's hard to picture the brooding actor as scheming slacker Ferris Bueller, but Depp was reportedly was offered the role in John Hughes' '80s classic before Matthew Broderick.
Who: Sandra Bullock
Role: Margaret “Maggie” Fitzgerald
Movie: "Million Dollar Baby"
Interestingly, Bullock actually was cast in the role, but decided to pull out after several delays. Oops! The boxing flick was a huge commercial and critical success, and earned its star, Hilary Swank, a second Oscar.
Who: Julia Roberts
Role: Leigh Anne Tuohy
Movie: "The Blind Side"
Roberts was offered the part of feisty mom and activist Leigh Anne Tuohy in the 2009 footbal flick "The Blind Side," but reportedly turned it down to star in the ensemble rom-com "Valentine’s Day" directed by Garry Marshall, the man who made her a star with 'Pretty Woman." The role of Tuohy went to Sandra Bullock and—despite her distractingly heavy-handed Southern accent—won her an Oscar. "Valentine's Day," however, was a flop.
Who: Matthew Broderick
Role: Walter White
Show: "Breaking Bad."
Is your mind totally blown? Ours was when we heard that Broderick, along with actor John Cusack, are both rumored to have passed on the role of ailing chemistry teacher turned meth kingpin Walter White on AMC's behemoth 'Breaking Bad." Lucky they did, because the part has undoubtedly cemented Bryan Cranston's place in television history.
Who: Paul Shaffer
Role: George Costanza
David Letterman's longtime bandleader and banter buddy Shaffer admits in his 2009 memoir We’ll Be Here the Rest of Our Lives that he was offered the role of George by Jerry Seinfeld himself, who didn't even want him to audition. Paul Shaffer never called him back, because he was "busy" at the time. The role went to Jason Alexander, who played the character to neurotic perfection
Who: Pamela Anderson
Role: Dana Scully
Show: "The X Files"
In an odd casting choice, the show's producers reportedly had their eye on the busty blonde for the role of FBI Special Agent Scully, which eventually made Gillian Anderson a household name. since then, Gillian has been reported as saying: "Pamela was somebody who was more familiar to them in terms of what was on TV at the time. They were looking for someone bustier, taller, leggier than me."
Who: Paul Giamatti
Role: Michael Scott
Show: "The Office"
Yes, the part of the world's most politically incorrect boss almost went to Paul Giamatti, who was hot off the success of wine-themed buddy flick "Sideways" and reportedly was the first choice for Michael Scott. Giamatti was offered the part, but declined and—as Splitsider pointed out—Giamatti’s characters tend to be more cerebral than Michael Scott, while Carell nails the “dumb guy” routine in a way Giamatti can’t.
Who: Tom Hanks
Role: Jerry Maguire
Movie: "Jerry Maguire"
Cameron Crowe—the director of the 1996 sports flick—has reportedly said he wrote the movie with Hanks in mind for the lead role. At the time, Hanks was directing "That Thing You Do," so had to pass, but he later approved Tom Cruise as his replacement. "I think you look at it now and it couldn’t have been anybody other than Tom Cruise,” Hanks told "Access Hollywood." “It’s the way the movie’s operated. I don’t think anybody would look at that now and say, ‘That movie was not perfect.’”
Who: Mark Wahlberg and Joaquin Phoenix
Role: Ennis Del Mar and Jack Twist
Movie: "Brokeback Mountain"
Both Wahlberg and Phoenix were approached by director Ang Lee to play gay cowboys in the critically acclaimed 2005 film, but Wahlberg passed on the role, later saying he was "creeped out" by the graphic script. This comment obviously stirred up some controversy and caused doubts about his range as an actor, but he's since said he has no regrets about passing up the part (the roles eventually went to Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal.)
Who: Denzel Washington
Role: Michael Clayton
Movie: "Michael Clayton"
Washington passed on the lead in 2007's "Clayton," but has since admitted it was a mistake. "With Clayton, it was the best material I had read in a long time, but I was nervous about a first-time director, and I was wrong. It happens," he told GQ.
The role ultimately went to George Clooney. Washington also turned down Brad Pitt's role in 1995's "Se7en.
Who: Ray Liotta
Role: Tony Soprano
Show: "The Sopranos"
Considering Liotta made a career out of playing wiseguy types, it's not terribly shocking that he was approached for the role of conflicted mob boss Tony Soprano in the HBO hit. Liotta reportedly turned it down to focus on his film career, and the part went to the late James Gandolfini, whose portrayal made Tony Soprano one of the greatest TV roles of all time.
Who: Emily Blunt
Role: Black Widow
Movie: "Iron Man 2"
The talented Brit was offered the role of Black Widow in "Iron Man 2" (which was assumed by Scarlett Johansson) but passed due to a scheduling conflict with "Gulliver's Travels," which totally tanked at the box office.
Who: Kevin Costner
Role: Andy Dufresne
Movie: "The Shawshank Redemption"
Costner was arguably one of the biggest movie stars throughout the 1980s and early '90s, and was offered the leading role in the "Shawshank Redemption." In a sad story, Costner passed so he could focus on his passion project "Waterworld," which became one of the biggest flops in movie history. The role of Andy Defresne went to Tim Robbins.
Who: Bruce Willis
Role: Sam Wheat
Willis was offered the role of Sam in the 1990 mega-hit "Ghost," and the chance to play alongside his then-wife Demi Moore. The part eventually went to Patrick Swayze, who was excellent

Joaquin Phoenix Reportedly in Final Negotiations for "Doctor Strange|
By Scallinno - 17 hours ago
Collider reports that three-time Oscar nominee Joaquin Phoenix is currently in final negotiations to star in Marvel Studios' "Doctor Strange" film. Phoenix was rumored to be in negotiations for the role as recently as July, but this is the first report of a deal getting to the final stages for the starring role of the upcoming Marvel film. His previous credits include "Gladiator," "Walk the Line," "Her," "The Master" and more -- he was also approached by Warner Bros. to play Lex Luthor in "Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice."
The character was teased as recently as "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," when Agent Jasper Sitwell called out "Stephen Strange" as one of the people of interest that Hydra might target to preemptively strike out at. When discussing the call-out with CBR News in April, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige clarified it was to confirm Doctor Strange definitely exists in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
"We're definitely working very hard on trying to figure that out and get the right team in place on that," Feige said. "His mention was less about, 'We're going to announce it soon, let's put it out there!' and more about, 'No, he's definitely in the MCU.'"
If reports are accurate, Phoenix would be the first actor to join the "Doctor Strange" film, directed by Scott Derrickson. While no official confirmation has been given by the studio, Collider states that fans should "expect official confirmation from Marvel's end soon."

Two Years Later: Joker or Bane?|
By luckluck - 17 hours ago
I know this topic has probably been done before but so have a million other topics in this section. So fu*k it. These are two of the great movie villains of all time so this topic will be discussed forever anyway.
My question is, who was the better villain? NOT the better acting performance. Who was the better villain, Joker in The Dark Knight or Bane in The Dark Knight Rises and why?
I give the slight edge to Joker because although Bane was actually able to defeat Batman both physically and financially, the plan and execution of Wayne's financial downfall wasn't totally his. Also, although he succeeded in one of his goals of sending Gotham into a semi-controlled anarchy, he ultimately failed in making Gotham face it's "ultimate reckoning". But you can't take away the fact that Bane actually put Batman out of commission for a while.
Joker accomplished exactly what he set out for. Fear and chaos. He had no concrete goal. He didn't want to defeat Batman. He wanted to compete with him. Batman defeated Bane and thwarted his plan. I don't feel like he actually defeated the Joker. Plus Joker operated with a group that he created, whereas Bane inherited an already powerful group. And Joker was able to ultimately take what Batman loved the most. Joker pretty much accomplished what he wanted to. Therefore I think Joker was the slightly better villain.
