Merry Christmas everyone! Here’s a look at what’s going on and about in entertainment, this week.
The minds behind the 007 series are attempting to have Daniel Craig sign on for five more James Bond movies. This would definitely make him the longest tenured actor ever to play Bond, when asked to comment on whether or not he would be returning to play the mostly 2 dimensional British spy, Craig (now working as a real actor) laughed maniacally. Of course as always happens with Hollywood the minds behind 007 then offered Craig a sum of money equaling the gross domestic product of Sweden. Official results pending.
In semi-related news Eva Green (who played one of the roughly six trillion women who have kissed James Bond over the years) has supposedly signed on to play one of the greek goddesses in the upcoming movie 300: Battle of Artemisia. The sequel to the critically acclaimed movie 300: How to Kick a Man in A Well. Green says she’s very excited about the prospect of being around so many men walking around in capes and underwear.
The Atlanta Braves (a baseball team) are taking Walt Disney to court over the title of Disney’s newest movie Brave. Because obviously a movie about a little Scottish girl and her struggles with her family life is a perfect rip off of an American based baseball team that loses all the time.
Vin Diesel has confirmed that there will be two more The Fast and The Furious movies. The plots haven’t been released yet but I promise you they will have something to do with someone who NEEDS something to get somewhere quickly, someone who has a really nice car, and some women who can’t find clothing that actually fits them.
Sherlock Holmes 2: A Game of Shadows took the box office this week! Coming in behind it was the sequel to the sequel of a movie that no one watched, Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked. A movie with a title so bad Chipmunks all across the country are threatening to protest with their acorns raised high!
Asa Butterfield (the boy from The Boy in Striped Pajamas) has been confirmed as Ender in the upcoming movie Ender’s Game. When reached for comment Asa said that his name was probably the most ridiculous thing ever in the world.
Stan Lee (famed comic book creator) has apparently turned his attention to the international scene. He’s signed on with Liquid Comics to produce a series called Chakra the Invincible primarily aimed at the country of India. When reached for comment Indian children said they were excited about the new comic but that as weird as Chakra the Invincible sounds it can’t hold a candle to the newest Indian craze: Asa Butterfield.
Well there you go! And as a special tribute to the fact that I may or may not be posting next week due to Holiday traveling check back later this evening for my official Top Ten Movies of 2011 list!!
