Jessica Biel

What is Movie News After Dark? If you have to ask, then you can’t afford to miss it. I’ll admit it, I’m excited about Mortal Kombat Legacy, the web series from Kevin Tancharoen, who put together that excellent Mortal Kombat: Rebirth short film not too long ago. It looks like a solid take on a franchise that is always towing the line between badass and sillidiculous. And the first look at Sub-Zero, as played by Kevan Ohtsji, leans toward the former. The web series premieres April 12 on Machinima’s YouTube Channel.

Back in 2009, Gerard Butler was planning a romantic comedy about a baseball player returning to his estranged wife to make amends with her and his child and to coach the local little league team. It was called Slide. Now that movie is about soccer instead of baseball, it’s called Playing the Field, and (according to Variety) Jessica Biel and Uma Thurman are now on board. Director Gabriele Muccino (The Pursuit of Happyness) was always on board and still is. For what it’s worth, this doesn’t exactly sound like the typical rom-com Butler appears in on a nearly-annual basis in order to stoke the fires of his P.S. I Love You fanbase. The ladies love cool Gerard, but you’ll notice that the words ‘Aniston’ and ‘Heigl’ appear nowhere near the marquee on this one. Biel will play the ex-wife, and Uma Thurman will play one of the soccer moms. Who I’m guessing is single (if it’s one of those rom-coms) or is married (if it’s one of those rom-coms). One of the most interesting aspects of the production is the screenwriter. Robbie Fox hasn’t written for the screen in over a decade – after the double punch of So I Married and Axe Murderer and In the Army Now, he sort of disappeared, but do I want to watch a romantic comedy written by Robbie Fox? Hell yes. The man had a unique ear for comedy, and his return is a welcome one.

Now that Zack Snyder’s upcoming Superman film has found it’s Clark Kent, it only makes sense that they would begin testing for a Lois Lane that works well with him on screen. What’s Playing got the ball rolling by releasing a list of names that were in the running. The list included Kristen Stewart, Malin Akerman, Dianna Agron, Jessica Biel, and Rachel McAdams. The speculation began. Which of these girls has the right mix of brunette and feisty to pull the part off? Stewart was taken off the list pretty early, mainly due to having too many commitments, but probably also do to a complete lack of feistiness. Akerman was dismissed as being too old for the role, because that last Superman movie worked so well with casting high school kids as decades seasoned reporters with a six year old kid. So that left the choice as being between Rachel McAdams, Jessica Biel, and some girl I’ve never heard of. Decisions, decisions.

What is The A-Team? It’s a big budget revamp of an eighties TV show! It’s a typical summer action movie with more boom than brains! It’s a rare example of Hollywood showing the US military in a positive light in an effort to finally make Aleric happy!

Pascal Laugier’s Martyrs is my favorite of the ultra-violent French horror resurgence for several reasons. Now Laugier is attached to another film designed as his English-language debut, and while it’s no Hellraiser, it still seems to have some pretty interesting potential.

Planet 51 may not be an original tale, nor is it a movie from the likes of Pixar or Dreamworks. However, this second trailer is quite a bit of fun.

Jessica Biel playing a stripper may be the only interesting thing about this flick. Judge for yourself from the trailer, but you might just want to wait for Mr. Skin screencaps.

You have to love some of the things I pick up in my journeys through the world of movie blog RSS feeds. Today’s Daily Diversion comes to us courtesy of the folks at The Playlist. It is behind the scenes look from Access Hollywood at the method acting — if we can call it that — employed by Jessica Biel in her role as a down on her luck single mom stripper in the soon to be straight-to-DVD drama Powder Blue. And even though I have a feeling that this movie will be much like Lindsay Lohan’s foray into on-screen stripping in I Know Who Killed Me – in which the sexy leading lady plays a stripper but doesn’t actually go the distance — I’m still very interested in seeing Jessica Biel shake what the good lord gave her, even if it will be done with nothing less than her undies on. Powder Blue has no official release date, theatrical or otherwise, but we’ll keep you updated. For more daily video goodness, check out our Daily Diversion archive. To submit a video for us to scrutinize and then maybe post, send it via electronic mail to editors@filmschoolrejects.com.

Besides the mandatory Defensive Driving Class I had to take, The Oscars was the most educational experience of my year so far. Hopefully, you caught the same things I did. Or we’ll have to fight back behind the playground later.

I hate to be one of those guys who waters this one down to “the one with Jessica Biel as a stripper,” as Powder Blue might have something more to offer than just one of my favorite Jessicas in her naughty clothes, but how else was I going to get your attention?
