So I was away last week and Steve took over the Entertainment Link-Off once again in my absence. Anyway, I’m back with your weekly edition of the ELO. In theatres this weekend… well… there’s The Avengers! Oh wait, it’s not out in North America yet. Tough. In the meantime, I suppose you could go watch The Five Year Engagement featuring Emily Blunt.
After the jump a red band trailer for The Five Year Engagement, MTV Movie Awards getting a reboot, news on the development of Arrested Development, moviegoers like 3D, new look at Prometheus and a special interview with Jayesslee courtesy of comedian David So.
Now that’s a unique concept… Releasing a red band trailer that doesn’t really spoil the movie because it’s filled with deleted scenes. Have a look at the red band trailer for The Five Year Engagement to get an idea of the type of humour the film is going for. (Funny or Die)
