Hellboy on “Inside the Actor’s Studio.”

It’s a short promotional clip for the new movie, but it made me laugh:

So gonna see this film.

Gotta love the poster for “Hellboy II.”

I’m so looking forward to this movie. Still need to get the original on Blu-ray.

Unintelligently De-lined

I promise the title’s pun is the unfunniest thing about this story. 

There is a rich, deep kind of irony that must be shared. I’m blogging this from the Apple store in the Mall of America, because I’m too amused to want to wait until I get back to my hotel room.

I went to attend a screening of the creationist propaganda movie, Expelled, a few minutes ago. Well, I tried … but I was Expelled! It was kind of weird — I was standing in line, hadn’t even gotten to the point where I had to sign in and show ID, and a policeman pulled me out of line and told me I could not go in.

I’m still laughing though. You don’t know how hilarious this is. Not only is it the extreme hypocrisy of being expelled from their Expelled movie, but there’s another layer of amusement. Deep, belly laugh funny. Yeah, I’d be rolling around on the floor right now, if I weren’t so dang dignified.

The real surprise is in the full posting: Expelled! at Pharyngula.

PS3 to gain ability to download Blu-ray movies to PSP.

Sony just made the PSP a must buy item for me:

Sony demonstrated how you could put a Blu-ray Disc movie into a Playstation 3 and copy the film to a Playstation Portable or a Memory Stick. “This way, you can have a portable copy you can take with you,” explains David Bishop, president of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

“There was always the promise of greater interactivity. You’ll see that coming in the new year,” Bishop added. In addition to the PSP copying example, Sony also demonstrated how you could download ring tones and new content to a BD Live player, using Men in Black as the example.

BD Live is proving to be a big catchphrase at the show: Panasonic announced its BD Live player yesterday, Fox showcased an early version of its Alien vs. Predator multiplayer game at the Blu-ray Disc Association’s booth, and Sony showed its interactive Men in Black trivia game. The game was being played by two people in two locations on a Playstation 3.

Being able to do Remote Play of games and videos on the PS3 through your PSP over the internet was already pretty damn cool, but this just doubles the value of having a PSP as a portable media device. Which can’t hurt as it’s traditionally been somewhat of a pain in the ass to get media onto the PSP.

William Gibson’s “Neuromancer” headed to the big screen, but there’s a catch.

I’m a huge William Gibson fan and my favorite novel of his is Neuromancer which he released in 1984. I’ve been dreaming of a movie adaptation for years though I admit my enthusiasm was diminished quite a bit after I saw what they did to another Gibson’ story—Johnny Menomic. Still I can’t help but be a little geeked at this bit of good news.

Now the bad news: Sources say the lead role of Case will be played by Hayden Christensen. Oh noes!

JoBlo.com sources have told us that Hayden Christensen will star in NEUROMANCER as Case, the former hacker at the center of the story. I’ll be honest and admit I’ve never read NEUROMANCER and my rudimentary attempts to try and understand the plot have only confused me. But it seems very much a precursor to the Matrix with the book even referring to “the matrix.” Joseph Kahn (TORQUE) is directing the film, which is essentially set up as an indie film with a big budget. It is not set up at a studio but still carries an impressive $70 million budget. It’s unclear when filming would begin but it could be later this year.

On the plus side it’s not Keanu Whoa! Reeves, but on the negative side it’s Hayden Friggin’ Can’t Act Worth A Shit Christensen. They’re working really hard to make me hate the film before it’s even filmed.
