'Safe House' trailer - Denzel Washington toys with Ryan Reynolds

Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds have each had a few setbacks, but they are, undoubtedly, two of the more interesting actors in Hollywood. In Safe House, Washington is playing a villain of sorts, which is always interesting as he’s a difficult guy to hate (and he knows it). Reynolds seems to be more of a straight-laced hero, doing what he has to do to make things right.

Green Lantern eager to become a trilogy (rumor)

This is by no means a reliable report, as the person who said it was hitting on someone, but Bleeding Cool has heard that Green Lantern 2 is scheduled to begin filming before the first movie hits theaters. Warner Bros. is very confident in the potential of the DC superhero flick that it will use the current New Orleans shooting location as Coast City (a fictional city) in the sequel, which should hit theaters sometime in 2012. A Flash movie is in the works as well.

Freaking sweet trailer for Buried, starring Ryan Reynolds

I love a trailer that can entertain and thrill without showing any footage at all. This movie is looking better all the time. I've always said, never bury a man with his cell phone, especially if that phone can send Youtube videos. The new trailer tells us a bit more about the story. Reynolds plays Paul Conroy, an American contractor abducted in Iraq. If his captors don't get $5 million, he will die.

BURIED teaser trailer might as well be a radio broadcast

This could be a great movie. I enjoyed Phonebooth, which had Colin Farrell stuck inside a small box for an hour and a half. I imagine a film about a man buried alive could be as interesting, at least. Above is the teaser trailer (thanks to Filmonic for the link). What do you guys think? Buried will hit the country in wide release Oct. 8th.


Watch this: PAPER MAN starring Jeff Daniels, Ryan Reynolds, and Emma Stone

Jeff Daniels and Ryan Reynolds are known to pick interesting roles. Now we get to see them together. Daniels, currently starring in God of Carnage on Broadway (good show, saw it last month), plays a "washed up writer" who never let go of his invisible childhood friend. Ryan Reynolds plays that friend, who also happens to be a superhero. Emma Stone pops up too, along with Lisa Kudrow and Weeds star Hunter Parrish. Paper Man, which could be called a "dramedy," or part comedy/part drama, hits theaters April 23.

The trailer is reminiscent of Lars and the Real Girl, according to Entertainment Weekly's Emily Exton. I agree. Anyone who hasn't seen Lars, should check it out, but first, watch this trailer.


GREEN LANTERN to have a CGI costume

Spider-Man, Iron Man, and Batman's costumes may have looked computer generated, but Green Lantern is about to take it to the next level. Ryan Reynolds will wear only a motion capture suit while filming Martin Cambell's version of the Green Lantern, reports /Film.

My problem, unlike heavy CGI characters of the past, like Spider-Man and Iron Man, Green Lantern shows his face. So we're going to have a computer generated body pasted on a real head--it could look bad, very bad. However, it should be noted that Green Lantern is a different kind of superhero. Much like Venom (Spider-Man villian), he can change his suit on the fly. From what I understand, it scans onto his body very quickly. The design is still a secret, but supposedly his suit should glow with energy. John Gholson from Cinematical thinks his chest logo may even hover out from his suit. Interesting, to be sure.


ZOMBIELAND writers set to pen G.I. JOE 2 and DEADPOOL

Zombieland is one of my favorite films of 2009 and it looks like it may have ranked pretty high on movie studio executive lists as well. /Film reports that Paramount has hired Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick to write the sequel to G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. The news is elating since it would mean two good writers are attached to write a sequel to what I consider an awful movie. The Rise of Cobra, like many blockbusters, was written by a mish-mash of 3-6 screenwriters. 

A couple days ago, Fox/Marvel announced that they've hired the duo to write the Ryan Reynolds superhero movie, Deadpool. The flick is kind of a spin off to X-Men Origins: Wolverine, which had Renolds as Deadpool in it. No director or schedule for Deadpool has been confirmed, as the project is still a ways out.


Ryan Reynolds wins Green Lantern role

According to Reuters, after a lengthy audition process, Warner Bros. finally decided that Ryan Reynolds is the best man to play the DC superhero Green Lantern. Justin Timberlake, Bradley Cooper, and Jared Leto were all in competition for the role. Martin Campbell is set to direct. You may remember him from such films as GoldenEye, Casino Royale, Vertical Limit, and the two Zorro movies.

If the deal is completed, it would make Reynolds the only actor to have played heroes for both Marvel and DC. He recently starred in a comic-book movie, 20th Century Fox’s “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” in which he played Deadpool, also known as the Merc with a Mouth. The character is being developed for a spin-off in which Reynolds will star. He also played Marvel’s vampire hunter Hannibal King in “Blade: Trinity.”

I’m not so sure any one actor should be playing two comic book roles. What do you think?


Review - The Proposal ***1/2

As a concept, “The Proposal” is a textbook Hollywood romantic comedy. I started off hating it, slowly began to like it, then we had a falling out. Fortunately, we made up in the end.

The story is pretty simple. Margaret Tate (Sandra Bullock) is an overbearing boss who’s about to be deported back to Canada. To keep her job, she blackmails her overworked assistant, Andrew Paxton (Ryan Reynolds), into marrying her on the sly. If their fraudulent relationship is uncovered by the U.S. government, it could mean $250,000 and five years in jail for Andrew. To prove they’re a true couple, Margaret must travel with Andrew to meet his family, who lives in Alaska. On paper, it’s actually a lot like the plot to 2007’s “I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry.”
