JENNIFER ANISTON, BEN KINGSLEY IN "CONVENTION"! AARON JOHNSON, BRYAN CRANSTON, ELIZABETH OLSEN FOR "GODZILLA"! MATT SMITH, CHRISTINA HENDRICKS IN RYAN GOSLING'S "HOW TO CATCH A MONSTER"! J.J. ABRAMS TO HELM "HALF-LIFE" & "PORTAL" FILMS!

A rather delightful cast awaits us in new comedy CONVENTION. Jennifer Aniston, Ben Kingsley and Mark Duplass star in this story in which mild-mannered Paul (Duplass) and his feisty sister Abby (Aniston) are setting out to change the box storage world with Paul's invention of the 5-sided box. Breaking all the laws of physics with their new product, their fiercest competitors, including maniacal box magnate Bobby Schroedinger (Kingsley) and Mathematical Construct, an atomic guardian of the natural order of universal mathematical balance, try to stop them securing the deal of their lives - oh, and ripping a giant apocalyptic whole in the fabric of the universe. On discovering the damage he's causing, Paul must race against time to put the galaxy back in order and save the girl of his dreams.


HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
Since he obviously thinks he is not busy enough with finishing STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS, preparing STAR WARS 7 film and a bunch of TV pilots for 2013 season, J.J Abrams also wants to make movies out of Valve's video games PORTAL and HALF-LIFE. According to "Movie Web"  the HALF-LIFE game was first released in 1998, with the story which follows theoretical physicist Gordon Freeman, who opens a gateway between his New Mexico laboratory and another world known as Xen, which is inhabited by terrifying monsters. PORTAL, which debuted in 2007, is a spin-off of Half-Life, that follows a test subject tasked with
finding a rival company's device that can open portals into space. Meanwhile, Ryan Gosling, who is directing his first film - HOW TO CATCH A MONSTER - has added a new cast member - DOCTOR WHO star Matt Smith will join Christina Hendricks and Eva Mendes in the story which, set against the surreal landscape of a vanishing city, follows a single mother who is swept into a fantasy dream world, while her teenage son discovers a road that leads to an underwater town!

GODZILLA & GAME NIGHT
After the rumours that Henry Cavill is wanted by the studio for the lead role in the remake of GODZILLA, "Variety" reports that the new lead might be
Aaron Johnson, with Bryan Cranston and Elizabeth Olsen also in negotiations for other roles. Even though the shooting is supposed to start next month, the screenplay and the casting aren't finished yet.  And the proof that you can always expect a crazy comedy from Jason Bateman (whom you will watch this year in IDENTITY THIEF with Melissa McCarthy) is his latest project - "Deadline" reports that he will star in GAME NIGHT - in which the story centres on group of couples that meet every week to play board games. The couples end up becoming involved in a murder mystery.

    5. I liked her on Friends, but she needs to retire.

    8. have you seen her in THE GOOD GIRL? That wasn't a romcom but a very deep and powerful drama. She was really marvellous in it portraying a cashier who is lost in her life and poverty. She was even nominated for an Independent Spirit Award for the role.

    9. saw it, just her cheating on Ross... again... :)

    10. what cheating? He cheated on her, not she on him :)

  2. A five sided box? Now that sounds like something I want to see =P

    I think I may have to venture out and see Identity Thief soon. Game Night sounds like it may be an interesting movie. Hopefully, the trailer will be out soon.

    1. IDENTITY THIEF is out soon, but the trailer was a bit too violent for me, so I will wait for Melissa's film with Sandra Bullock which was pushed from April to June or July.

      Delete
    2. =(((

      The Sandra/Melissa movie was delayed? Drats! I planned on seeing that one in the theatre. Oh well, it will be warmer than anyway.

    3. they probably want the height of the season for it, and possibly to promote it better since there wasn't any marketing so far. The film doesn't even have a poster.

  3. Hmmm...beaking the laws of physics and defying the law of gravity with that pic of Christina Hendricks cleavage :)

  5. Call me a softie, but I'm a fan of romcoms, too, Dezzy. I look forward to a remake of Godzilla. I liked the previous one until they decided to show us Godzilla babies...

    How's life, Dezzmeister?

    2. I think it's so romantic when he opens his big mouth and shows off his shiny teeth.

      Except for the jet lag I've had for over a year now and the fact that my hair is turning grey... all is pretty much okay. :)

    3. oooh, but I bet grey hairs would ad to your dashing looks, oh divine Grumpster!

  7. Hmm, I'm not really a Jennifer Aniston (altho I must admit my love for Bruce Almighty) fan but the story does sound interesting and Ben Kingsly can usually be counted upon to offer a good performance.

    1. OBJECT OF MY AFFECTION is her fave of mine, I think it was her first big film during FRIENDS.

  8. That is an extremely hawt Jennifer Anniston photo young Dezimond! (much better than the Ms Hendricks pic IMO) Her comedies are a bit hit and miss but she is easy on the eye - hopefully this will be one of the better ones!

    Cheers,
    Doc

    1. I knew my boys would appreciate the pic, Doc :) Aniston has a surprisingly big number of naked pics, you know.... I've posted most of them already... running out of the material soon :)

  9. The plot of the movie with Maniston (yeah she's got a new nickname) sounds smart and funny. Loooove Ben Kingsley, so there you go, I'll watch it.

    Darling, I just got in some figures that you'll love. I'm buying the Arthurian Legends collection sculpted by the master Tom Meier. I have never in my life seen horses sculpted so well unless they were full size in bronze by one of the greats. I can barely put these things down for marveling at teir beauty. I won't be painting them for some months though. I'm not good enough yet, but one day.

    1. why do they call her Maniston ,dahlink? I'm not an overly huge fan, but she will always have my support in her war against the villainous Angelina.

      Oh, so exciting, I love Arthurian legends. Vincent or Captain Lol, had lovely KINGDOM OF HEAVEN figures last week, they were ever so pretty.

  10. I'm interested in Half Life and Portal movies and of course anything with Christine Hendricks!!
