Lunchtime Poll: Which insane male fantasy in 'Sucker Punch' are you most excited about? Dragons? Samurai? Chicks with guns?

Zack Snyder’s next movie is titled Sucker Punch, but it might as well be called Adolescent Male Fantasy: The Movie Musical in 3-D on Steroids, Exclamation Point!!!. Trailers for the film overflow in insane, mega-testeronized imagery plucked from every awesome era of human history — trench warfare, magical swords, steampunk robots, samurai demons, ill-fated zeppelins, and the youth-ending vision of adorable High School Musical moppet Vanessa Hudgens firing a mini-gun out of a WWII-era bomber at a fire-breathing dragon (while wearing what appears to be Psylocke’s skin-baring ’90s costume). Four new international trailers don’t really add much to the mix besides some euro-techno, but they did us Pollsters to start thinking: Which of Sucker Punch‘s many, many ludicrous images are you most excited about? Take the latest Lunchtime Poll after the jump… READ FULL STORY

Do Richard Hatch's sad blue eyes humanize him?

I hate myself for MANY reasons; feeling sorry for a mean bully because of his eyes just happens to be today’s greatest. Here’s Survivor villain and ex-con Richard Hatch, who shoved David Cassidy literally off the show on last night’s premiere of The Celebrity Apprentice. The CW’s Katie Cassidy (David’s daughter — who knew?!), showed up at the pizzeria and everything. How awful. This would never fly at Melrose Place, on Gossip Girl, or in Sweden.

The sad eye phenomenon has always bugged me about Richard. He is so vile and yet his eyes are so sad and so light blue that they almost seem… considerate? Like if you just gave his eyes a hug, maybe — maybe! — he would stop being awful. But I don’t want to hug him either. I hate this. I just wish he didn’t have these eyes.

Does Richard Hatch practice his sad eyes in the mirror? If you had no idea who this man was, would you consider smiling at him? Maybe just a smirk? I don’t know. This will definitely be my most insane post of the week.

Terminator statue in Ripley's Orlando Odditorium is, in fact, odd

Terminator-full-bodyThe Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Orlando Odditorium has acquired a life-size statue of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Terminator that doubles as a tribute to the film industry and its biggest stars. The piece, by artist Enrique Ramos, took five months to create and uses a variety of media — “even a real vampire bat!” says the release — and will be accompanied by a motorcycle when it moves to Ripley’s Hollywood Odditorium later this year. Edward Meyer, Ripley’s VP of Exhibits and Archives, describes the statue as Ramos’ opus, “his 9th Symphony — both in complexity, detail, and historic scope. He has virtually told the history of the film industry in one spectacular sculpture.” Click here to see a large full body shot, and see how many films and stars you can pick out. (Spoiler: That’s Cameron Diaz on his forehead and Julia Roberts on his cheek.) We got the full list, which we’ll paste below. The sculpture seems, well, not all that thrilling at first. But when you see two of the close-ups, it becomes slightly cooler…  READ FULL STORY

James Van Der Beek talks Ke$ha, killing unicorns, and playing himself

James Van Der Beek may have finally discovered his greatest role: James Van Der Beek. Consider the evidence. He made us laugh last month with the Funny or Die “Van Der Week” videos. Today, he co-stars in Ke$ha’s new “Blow” music video as a tuxedo-clad, laser-toting version of himself. And he was recently cast in the comedy pilot Don’t Trust the Bitch in Apt. 23 as a former teen heartthrob named James Van Der Beek. We talked to the ex-Dawson’s Creek star about unicorns, getting beheaded, and the difference between himself and “himself.”

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: What was your reaction when you were pitched the idea of shooting unicorns with lasers?
JAMES VAN DER BEEK: I’ve been on this kick in the last year or so of whatever’s being offered — no matter how off the wall — if it sounds fun, just saying yes. The pitch is, “Unicorns and lasers and a James Bond tuxedo?” I just said, “Why not?” READ FULL STORY

'Today' and always: Michelle Obama is my bemused facial expression hero

First Lady Michelle Obama joined Matt Lauer on this morning’s Today show to talk about Egypt, her husband’s prospects for reelection and how he kicked his smoking habit (equally important), school lunches, Facebook (“It’s not necessary.”), and best of all: how the President most definitely does not dye his hair. The editors went all CSI: Makeover Madness on Michelle, displaying side-by-side images of Barack with different-looking hair from the same day. SHUDDER. You can see the most riveting crime scene in weeks at the bottom of this post. Anyway, I got a little screengrabby after their 30-minute interview. It happens. After the jump, five reasons Michelle Obama should co-host Today after she leaves the White House. What? Why not? READ FULL STORY

Clint Eastwood's Hoover biopic: Most handsome male cast ever?

Hoover-biopic-castNow that Josh Lucas is in talks to star in J. Edgar, the Clint Eastwood-directed Hoover biopic, the film is shaping up to be the most handsome movie of all time. In the film, Lucas would play aviator Charles Lindbergh alongside Leonardo DiCaprio as the titular character, Gossip Girl star Ed Westwick as the clean-cut Agent Smith, and The Social Network‘s Winklevoss wonder Armie Hammer as Hoover’s supposed secret lover Clyde Tolson. Mr. Eastwood, this is how you get movie attendance up!

If you break it down, I’d like to think each offers varying degrees of attractiveness: READ FULL STORY

Kanye may have underpaid for custom-made watch

I think Kanye West should have blown more than $180,000 on this custom-made yellow gold Tiret watch adorned with his own face. The “Kanye” portion of the watch is encrusted with only eight carats of yellow, black, brown and white diamonds. A few more Ks could surely have lent themselves to something more resemblant of a human ear, or smoothed the bulbous terrain of his jowls and chin. When I commission custom-made watches of my face, I tend to allow a full year instead of Kanye’s “five months to create the dial of the watch itself, which is made of a gold-colored mother-of-pearl.” And why are the diamonds on the border so small? This is a disappointment. [PopEater]

Merry (over-the-top) Christmas from the Kardashians!


It’s no secret that I make an effort to keep up with the Kardashians, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that I’m really enjoying their 2010 Christmas card. It’s so wonderfully over the top, and to quote the Kardashian clan, I die.

Khloe said on her blog yesterday that her momager, Kris, always makes “it a point to go all out, whether it was ninja turtles themed card, or bringing Santa into the mix, each year she always [manages] to top the year before.” And after seeing last year’s card which featured Ryan Seacrest (?!?), I didn’t even think it was possible. But sure enough, their card is ridiculously glamorous, and the definition of over the top. (Should it even be allowed to have so much beauty in one photo?)  READ FULL STORY

'Limitless': Bradley Cooper's got what you need

What if taking one pill once a week would make you rich and powerful? For starters, you wouldn’t have to work or go to school, but rather could sit around drinking wine all day while watching 30 Rock in your Snuggie, because heck, you’re rich and powerful! But we’re not alone in these desires, PopWatchers; underneath those good looks Bradley Cooper is really just like us: sluggish, under-productive, and averse to the bitter cold, and thankfully, his solution comes in pill form. This miracle — and totally fictional — find is at the center of Cooper’s 2011 film Limitless (previously titled The Dark Fields, co-starring Robert De Niro and Abbie Cornish), in which an under-achieving loser quickly gets sucked into a more glamorous lifestyle (read: cliff-jumping, maniacal laughter, infinity pools!) thanks to the magic of a clear pill. Check out Cooper’s ad for the drug, and test your own brain power on the accompanying website to see if NZT is right for you. A little paralysis, amnesia, brain damage, and some homicidal blackouts never hurt anyone, right? I mean who doesn’t want to live like Bradley Cooper? READ FULL STORY
