Entertainment Link-Off: Holiday Season

evangeline lilly esquireIt’s been a slow week in the world of entertainment as Christmas break is in full gear! Anyway, you should be busy at the cinemas as there are plenty of flicks to check out! Evangeline Lilly once again appears in the final installment of The Hobbit films. So let’s kick it all off with her.

After the jump, the list of overpaid actors, Star Trek is getting fast and furious, Playstation got some issues and Dr. Evil schools everyone on how to run a proper evil organization.

For the second year in a row, Adam Sandler has topped the list of most overpaid actor in Hollywood. That being said, it’s not like he causes studios to lose money or anything, but it just means everytime Sandler gets hired, they get less bang for their buck. (Forbes)

Justin Lin is making great leaps in Hollywood. Moving on from the Fast and Furious franchise, he will now helm Star Trek 3 with a slated release for 2016! (Deadline)

Well this comes as a non-surprise. Since Robert Orci vacated his spot as the director of Star Trek 3, it isn’t shocking that they won’t be using his script in the upcoming film. (Collider)

James Gunn has once again stated that Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is not meant to be a set-up film to The Avengers: Infinity War. (Comic Book)

In a recent interview Peter Jackson shares his distaste for movie franchises. That being said, this is the same dude that has stretched one small book into 3 long movies. (Moviefone)

Gamers, it has been a difficult few days as hackers have effectively shut down the Playstation Network. (Entertainment Weekly)

Seems like the whole whitewashing of the Egyptians in Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods and Kings wasn’t the only issue that rubbed the Egyptian authorities the wrong way. Seems like historical inaccuracies will prevent the film from being screened in the country. (Mashable)

Here’s a fun little fan made mash-up of a film that we’ll never see, Marvel vs. DC.

John Cusack and Adrian Brody team up with Jackie Chan for the big budget Chinese epic Dragon Blade. For a movie with a $65 million price-tag, it looks rather underwhelming.

With all the fuss surrounding the release of The Interview, Dr. Evil decides to address the Sony hack.
