The Weekend’s Rushes – Inception Ads, Emily Booth On Vagina Dentata, Cool Coolidge and More

Posted by July 4, 2010 Comment

NDTV take a look at cellphones that use the same kind of 3D display technology as the hugely exciting Nintendo 3DS.

Legally Blonde and Best in Show‘s Jennifer Coolidge is bringing a live show to Edinburgh, and The Guardian have her tapped as one of the most exciting comedy acts on the fringe. Don’t know Ms. Coolidge by name? Then perhaps this picture will help a little:

Thompson on Hollywood not only ran the two following images of huge-scale Inception marketing, they linked to an LA Weekly feature on why such things are very often completely illegal. Hard to discern if these two actually break the law, but it certainly seems that they might be.

Film and TV composer Alan Koshiyma has spoken to The Sacramento Bee about his score for a new Wii bound Pac-Man game. He says, “Pac-Man has a personality, and I need to materialize that.” I recommend he gives Avi Arad a call, and tries for a gig on the upcoming Pac-Man movie.

Irish Central have quoted supposed sources at Paramount and MTV Pictures regarding the possibility of Colin Farrell playing Ozzy Osborne in a biopic:

At least Colin and Ozzy are on the same page when it comes to using four-letter words!


Colin drinks, he smokes, he womanizes. He’s just a sleeve tattoo away from being a real rock star.

Meanwhile, their quote from Ozzy himself paints a different picture:

I don’t want a Johnny Depp or someone from the Hobbit films. I want someone who knows Birmingham. I’m from Birmingham, and it would be good to get someone from Birmingham to play me…. I’d like to do something like an X Factor audition, but Sharon does all that kind of thing, you know.

Sharon Osborne has echoed this desire for an unknown to The Telegraph, though I’m not sure what she said is entirely cogent:

We’re looking for an unknown because I think that when an actor is portraying someone who’s alive it’s very, very tough. We’re looking for a young 18-year old.


The stereophiles at Marketsaw think the last two Harry Potter films will silence the critics of post-process 3D conversion. Based on what? Mainly blind faith, it would seem.

A Hebrew version of the Shrek musical opens in August. Here’s a picture of the cast from The Jersusalem Post.

Found at Boing Boing, here’s a Left 4 Dead level mod that recreates the layout of Disneyland’s Indiana Jones ride.

Here’s a new moody poster for The Sorceror’s Apprentice and a five-minutes plus clip that they’re calling First Lesson.

Aint It Cool have posted a rather interesting Transformers 3 spy video. It seems that the filmmakers have built a huge rigged set that can tip by quite some amount. It’s always good to see this kind of practical craftsmanship thriving, where it’s allowed.

Emily Booth has the horror host gig for all of the premieres on the UK’s The Horror Channel. She’s posting her intro clips to YouTube, including this one for my beloved Teeth.

The following video interview from Collider features Jon Seda discussing The Pacific and Tom Hanks’ upcoming second feature as director, Larry Crowne. Shortly after 4:30 he reveals a little something about his part in the movie:

It was great. We just finished it not too long ago. I play a cop…. They got myself and Joshua Biton who plays Morgan in The Pacific, my best friend in The Pacific. They got the two of us to be in Larry Crown, and play these cops, play partners.

That’s this weekend’s worth of little news-lets. And yes, I’ve been thinking of the Nintendo 3DS all the way through writing this column. Drooling.
