After taking last week off, I’m back with another Entertainment Link-Off. So it’s been many years in the making but Scream 4 is finally in theatres. While not exactly the best of the series, it is much better than the third film of the franchise. Plus, gotta love the excess of eye candy in this right? Kicking off this entry is Emma Roberts and Hayden Panettiere at the Scream 4 premiere.
After the jump, a few more Scream related tidbits, an interesting Roger Ebert TED talk, Transformers: Dark of the Moon looks somewhat promising, Yvonne Strahovski channels her inner Gaga, everybody loves Community and the first episode of Mortal Kombat Legacy!
So it’s been 11 years since the last Scream film, so many people would be a little hazy on the story. So what better way to drag in people to go see the movie other than publicly discussing about your sex life at press interviews? Courtney Cox and David Arquette may have just helped boost Scream 4’s box office intake. (Movieline)
Critics are split when it comes to deciding whether Scream 4 is fun, stupid fun or just plain stupid. (LA Times)
Just to wet your appetites, new images from the final Harry Potter flick! (Entertainment Weekly)
Ouch! There’s an online movement wanting to send M. Night Shyamalan back to film school! He may have made a string of bad movies (and might be in a creative rut) but I hardly think he’s that horrible of a director. (JoBlo)
Joseph Kosinski’s sci-fi epic Oblivion… I mean Horizons may have found a new home with Universal. (Deadline)
There may be plenty of bad buzz behind Men in Black 3, but at least the cast looks happy filming the movie right now. Oh and one of the pics look ridiculously photoshopped for some odd reason. (Daily Mail)
Despite losing the ability to eat or speak after having his lower jaw removed, Roger Ebert delivered an interesting Ted talk. Guess what? It wasn’t about movies! (TED)
Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard’s horror flick Cabin in the Woods has been sitting on the shelves for a long time now. Here are two fan made posters that might help generate a few good chuckles while we continue to wait for its theatrical release. (Collider)
I’m still looking forward to the release of Transformers: Dark of the Moon. While there is little footage out there, here’s another written piece on the clips that were screened to bloggers out there. Not spoilery but it does raise our hopes up just a little bit. (Slashfilm)
In a continuation from the above link, the full transcript of the interview with director Michael Bay. (Slashfilm)
Another fun read. A roundtable for the screenwriters behind this summer’s big blockbusters. Hey look, Ehren Kruger is still apologizing for that crappy film Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen! (The Hollywood Reporter)
Natalie Portman’s dance double on Black Swan is still upset over the ‘lying’ producers of the film. Beating a dead horse? Despite all this, she does believe Natalie deserves the Best Actress award though. (ABC)
The second full trailer for Cowboys and Aliens is out! This time features more alien action and ummm more Olivia Wilde! (Apple)
In other trailer news, Rise of the Planet of the Apes is out! Now we know what it would all look like if our big cities are overrun with apes. Hey look, it knows how to take down a helicopter! (Apple)
Ok not exactly safe for work, but Yvonne Strahovski decided to lampoon three of the female pop divas Katy Perry, Ke$ha and Lady Gaga. So she doesn’t exactly have the best voice, but it’s still hilarious. (College Humor)
Oh 3D technology, we all knew you would be revolutionary in the world of filmmaking. James Cameron might be the ‘king’ of the tech right now, but seems like the folks in Hong Kong beat him to the punch with a 3D soft-core porn film. (Movieline)
Well things might be a bit less strict in Hong Kong, but over in mainland China, don’t even think about airing softcore porn in theatres… let alone time travel movies or shows. Yeah that’s right, time travel. (NY Times)
More love for NBC’s Community. Stephen Tobolowsky writes a heartfelt thanks to the show and reveals what he learned from Chevy Chase! (The Wrap)
It doesn’t stop there, the lovefest between Cougar Town and Community is still going strong. (Zap2it)
Donald Glover is more talented than you. (Village Voice)
Earlier on Monday, the first episode of the webseries Mortal Kombat Legacy has finally hit the net. While I love the cast and the production value (especially for a webseries), it didn’t quite feel like Mortal Kombat. Of course, this is only the start of the series and there should still be more to come. Hopefully Kevin Tancharoen can live up to the hype he drummed up with the Rebirth trailer.
