-- Look, we get the Naughty Snow White and Naughty Cinderella costumes, but there's gotta be a line drawn when it comes to the Naughty 'Finding Nemo' Halloween costumes, right? C'mon, it's Nemo! (But seriously, feel free to wear this when you enter our Halloween Costume Contest next month -- we won't say anything ...)
-- Jason Reitman and Diablo Cody are again reuniting as director and writer respectively on the new film 'Young Adult', about a ghostwriter of Young Adult novels who returns to her hometown to reconnect with her past, including old flames -- one of which, we've just learned, will be played by Patrick Wilson. Charlize Theron will play the ghostwriter, while comedian Patton Oswalt has also hopped onboard in an unspecified role.
-- DreamWorks has picked up the first joint venture between Guillermo del Toro and Walt Disney Studios. The film, 'Trollhunters', will be the debut project from del Toro's new production label "Disney Double Dare You", which will focus on scary genre films geared more toward a younger audience. Speaking about the film, del Toro noted, "It essentially combines fairy tales with modern times and is about how difficult it is to be kid. Normally, kids are idealized in animated films. But the growing pains, married with the notion that there is a world right next to us that is completely plagued by creatures of ancient lore, it's thematically fitting with the rest of my stuff."
-- Those of you counting down the seconds until Daft Punk's 'Tron: Legacy' score hits stores can rest easy tonight knowing that you have only a little under two months before you're able to download that sucker and lose yourself in its futuristic-sounding garden of awesomeness. The official soundtrack drops on November 22nd.
Oh, that's right. Jessica Alba nakedness. Check that out after the jump ...
-- Everyone loves a little movie magic ... except when it has to do with seeing Jessica Alba naked on the big screen for the first time, dammit! Those Alba fanboys out there who were all excited to see just a tiny portion of Jessica Alba's birthday suit in 'Machete' might be saddened by the news that, no, she wasn't really naked after all. Those computers may be cool when it comes to watching Na'vi fight to the death in awe-inspiring 3D, but they could also be used to make an actress appear to be naked when she's really not. Damn you technology! Thus, every nude scene you've ever seen has now been called into question, and it's all our fault. But hey, at least we still have nekked Alba in 'The Killer Inside Me' minus a body double. Or do we? Dun Dun Dun!
-- Seems like Joss Whedon is afraid he'll have to sacrifice a lot of character in order to bring us an 'Avengers' movie that absolutely kicks ass, and the guy is beginning to prep us for those hard decisions now. Speaking to SFX magazine, Whedon says, "What I will struggle with, in the outline and throughout, is that I would like to put these actors in a room and just make Glengarry Glen Ross," he laughs. "We're talking about really exciting people and at the same time I have to keep the momentum of the thing going. I can't let it turn into a lull fest. Knowing that I have enough time to do both of those things – that by the end of the movie you will feel 'in' with these guys – is the trick. It's not an easy one but one that Marvel absolutely honours. They don't hire Mark Ruffalo [the new Hulk] to say one iconic line and strike a pose. They hire him because he has so much humanity in him. He's the antithesis of the iconic actor. He's so human. He was my first choice to play the part, and the fact he is playing the part is nuts! They went to great lengths to make that happen and they understood exactly why he was right for the part."
-- While we're on the subject of Marvel films, 'Iron Man 2' hits DVD and Blu-ray tomorrow, and to go along with that a few videos have arrived online. Below you can scope out an alternate opening scene that was deemed too alcoholic-y and therefore cut from the finished film, as well as a spoof video featuring Iron Man flying around while looking to hook up with Black Widow.
-- And finally ... because you know you want to see at least one more inappropriate (yet sexy) Halloween costume tied to a beloved children's character, we give you ... Mrs. Potatohead bringing sexy back!
