Zoe Saldana

As the only literate Reject, it’s my duty to find the latest, the greatest and the untouched classics that would make great source material for film adaptations. I read so you don’t have to. One thing has become clear in the past week. Despite the comic book movie news flowing fast and furiously, the heroes were all familiar faces. The studios investing the most in bringing comic books to life have lost the plot a bit when it comes to the next few years of heroes to cultivate. Marvel tapping Black Panther is a nice start, but the studios are going to need to find alternate comic books to adapt in order to bring new life to the genre and surprise the fans who think seeing Spider-Man again will be fun but unnecessary. This week, we’ll look at the story of a family of lions in a time of war that remind us that there is no freedom that isn’t earned.

Director Andrew Dominik proved with The Assassination of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford that he could create an intensely beautiful film with an insanely long title. He also proved that he could handle a large cast of formidable talent. Fortunately for fans, he’ll get another chance to wrangle a murder of talent. Not only will Brad Pitt and Casey Affleck be starring in Dominik’s forthcoming Cogan’s Trade – a film about comedy and crime in Boston (the only city in the United States with crime) – but Sam Rockwell, Josh Brolin, Javier Bardem, Zoe Saldana, Bill Murray, and Mark Ruffalo are also possible to come on board. If they do, Andrew Dominik will have single-handedly kept the great actors of Hollywood busy and unable to appear in anyone else’s films next year. Well played, sir. The film is set to shoot in Louisiana in March, and it creates another reason to be excited for 2012. [Cinema Blend]

The rumor is that Ms. Fox won’t be in the next film per the decision from Mr. Bay. Why am I being so formal? It’s because I’m blogging in a tuxedo.

Consider this the news of the day. It is an equation that would put together producer Luc Besson, insane director Olivier Megaton (Transporter 3) and the world’s foremost badass lady, Zoe Saldana, together in a project full of bullets.

Fat Guys at the Movies

Kevin and Neil connect in the Magical Studio in the Sky after a long week of movie-watching. Like the wusses at Comedy Central, the Fat Guys refuse to show a depiction of the Prophet Muhammed. So there.

I was fortunate enough to sit down with the director on the day he locked picture on the film to talk about dance battles, getting lost in the jungle, and one of the best Birthday gifts he’s ever gotten – the chance to shoot a project he’s loved since he was a kid.

The Losers

The Losers is the closest thing to Tango & Cash to hit theaters in decades. Is that a good thing? Or is it fubar?

Far be it from to speculate about the absurdity of a plotline in an action movie based on an absurdly stylish comic book, but I find it hard to believe that Chris Evans — who will soon suit up as the titular character in Captain America — has so much trouble conversing with women…

Sometimes these punny titles just write themselves. It’s almost as if I’m on blogging auto-pilot. Warner Bros. will be releasing their latest foray into the world of comics — Sylvain White’s The Losers — into theaters on April 23. And to preemptively celebrate, we’re giving away a bunch of fun little knick-knacks that somehow relate to a scantily clad Zoe Saldana holding a bazooka.

No really, my computer began to heat up quite a bit while watching this new sizzle reel for Warner Bros.’ upcoming actioner The Losers, from director Sylvain White. For those who haven’t been paying attention, a sizzle reel is essentially just a much-extended trailer.

The Losers

The Losers is a bout a ragtag group of guns for hire who are forced to go on a dangerous mission to clear their name, or avenge a wrongdoing, or save some innocent villagers… it’s one of those, I’m sure of it.

The Losers

In 2010’s sea of comic book adaptations — including the likes of the big (Iron Man 2) and the fast-moving underdog (Kick-Ass) — one property seems to be getting lost in the shuffle. The adaptation of Andy Diggles series The Losers.

I get the feeling that, based on the perspective seen in this new poster for The Losers, that we are meant to know what it’s like to be eliminated by a team of highly-skilled assassins. One of which is the always lovely — and clearly meant to be on top — Zoe Saldana.

Could this Tom Robbins journey through immortality and beets be Oscar-caliber? You’re damned right it could.

If we’re honest with ourselves, we realized that watching sexy, charismatic people shoot at each other and blow things up is fun. By that logic, this trailer for The Losers is also fun.
