Cameron Diaz

This week, Fat Guy Kevin Carr is inspired by Larry the Cable Guy and his character of Mater in the Cars movies. After all, if a buck-toothed rusty redneck pick-up truck can travel the world, why can’t a bald-yet-hairy fat guy from Ohio can do so as well. Kevin lurked in the streets of Tokyo, hoping to stumble onto some classy British spies and uncover a plot to undermine green energy sources. Then he brushed off his teaching degree and got a job at a middle school where he drank profusely, slept through the day and threw dodge balls at the kids. When he tried to explain to the cops that he was just following in the way of Cameron Diaz’s character from Bad Teacher, they just laughed at him and hauled him away.

What is Movie News After Dark? It’s waiting to watch the latest episode of Community because it promised its girlfriend it would. And that’s really hard to do, because that show’s really good. Also, Josh Holloway from Lost guest stars in the two-part season finale. How can that be resisted by the world’s most interesting nightly movie news linkdump? Must… hold… on… Must… do… the news… Quentin Tarantino went big when he cast Brad Pitt as his lead in Inglorious Basterds. So to see him considering Will Smith as the titular character, a freed slave trained by a German bounty hunter that sets out on a quest to save his wife from a head slave, is an act of pure bravado — he’ll just go get anyone he effing pleases to star in his movies, won’t he? And if that wasn’t enough to blow your mind, consider this: Christoph Waltz is said to be circling the role of the German trainer, with Samuel L. Jackson in consideration as the bad guy. That’s potentially a perfect storm of awesome, so we’ll see.

What is Movie News After Dark? This is a question that I am almost never asked, but I will answer it for you anyway. Movie News After Dark is FSR’s newest late-night secretion, a column dedicated to all of the news stories that slip past our daytime editorial staff and make it into my curiously chubby RSS ‘flagged’ box. It will (but is not guaranteed to) include relevant movie news, links to insightful commentary and other film-related shenanigans. I may also throw in a link to something TV-related here or there. It will also serve as my place of record for being both charming and sharp-witted, but most likely I will be neither of the two. I write this stuff late at night, what do you expect?

Remember when you used to like Cameron Diaz? I know, it’s probably been a while, but there was actually a time when she enhanced a film rather than turned it into something you dreaded. The last time she was actually appealing in a film was in the still fantastic My Best Friend’s Wedding. Which came out in 1997. But she is awesome in this new red-band trailer for Jake Kasdan’s upcoming comedy Bad Teacher. Check out the trailer after the jump and tell me if I’m wrong.

The thing about broccoli is that it’s disgusting at first. When you’re a child, your young taste buds only want sugar and chocolate and that meatloaf that only your mom can make. Often you want all of these things at the same time. But as you get older, your taste matures and you suddenly find yourself with dozens of recipes that make broccoli a completely worthwhile vegetable that’s welcome on any plate. Hell, sometimes it even surprises you – blowing your taste buds away in a flavor explosion. The Green Hornet is cinematic broccoli.

Fat Guys at the Movies

Kevin and Neil meet up again in the Magical Studio in the Sky to talk about their lackluster thoughts on this week’s new movies… and boobs. They also contemplate why movies aren’t making as much money this summer and what are the best sandwiches they have ever had.

June Havens (Cameron Diaz) is trying to make it back home to Boston when she bumps into Roy Miller (Tom Cruise), a secret agent who has gone rogue with something very important to the federal government. As much as he tries to avoid her becoming a part of the game, she ends up either having to be glued to his side or taken out by some very bad men. The two will have to secure a young inventor (Paul Dano) and expose or kill the true rogue agent before it’s too late.

Green Hornet

There’s a title I didn’t think I would ever write. But it’s true — the new trailer for The Green Hornet is upon us, and Seth Rogen actually appears to kick some ass. A resident stoner funnyman, Rogen was an interesting choice for the film’s hero, but once again he and writing partner Evan Goldberg appear to have delivered something fun. And unexpectedly, there also appears to be some wicked action in it.

With the release of the nearly dismissible thriller comedy Killers (the one with Ashton Kutcher and Katherine Heigl) coming up this Friday and Lionsgate not screening it for critics, bloggers or the like, we need something to talk about. So we’re talking a film with a very similar premise — James Mangold’s Knight and Day.

We get it. Diaz’s career is headed this direction as it is…but Del Toro? Benicio Del Toro in a romantic comedy? Who in the what now?

This isn’t what I expected. I’m not a Tom Cruise hater, and in fact I generally like the man’s movies, but I was convinced Knight and Day was going to suck from the moment it was announced. Then I watched this new trailer.

If you weren’t sure what to make of the oft-title shifting movie Knight and Day, a comedy (I think) about a sociopathic super spy played by Tom Cruise and some random woman that he’s picked up along his path of secret agent violence, played by Cameron Diaz, you’re really in for a treat with this first trailer.

Despite previous reports, The Green Hornet movie is not dead. Hitfix’s Motion Captured has retracted previous statements declaring the death of the film, citing difficulties for Seth Rogen as the film searched for a new director.
