Just two days ago we reported that Emma Stone was being rumoured for the role of Mary Jane Watson in the upcoming Spider-Man reboot, leaving the role of primary love interest, Gwen Stacy, up for grabs. Well, it seems those rumours were wrong; Emma Stone will not be playing Mary Jane Watson. She will, however, be playing Gwen Stacy! Does that make sense? Our brains hurt.
Is it cold in here? Nope, the heating’s on full. Oh, that’s strange. Maybe it’s just the news that Goosebumps is set to be made into a film. Chilling.
In the nine years since The Office first appeared on out TV screens, way back in 2001, Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant have become household names and international superstars. The Office has spawned numerous foreign versions (The American version is currently on its sixth season) and their follow-up sitcom Extras went on to be just as successful. That’s not to mention all the radio shows, podcasts and stand-up shows the pair have done between them. So it’s safe to say there’s a fair old expectation surrounding Cemetery Junction, Gervais and Merchant’s first feature film. But is it any good?
Before you all start huffing and puffing and weeping and setting things on fire, just calm down a second. This isn’t so much news as it is speculation. It has emerged today that Percy Jackson aka Logan Lurman has begun “talks” with Spidey producers Columbia Pictures. Word on the street is that he’s being considered for the main role in the Spiderman reboot. And we all know what you’re thinking. Who in bananas is Logan Lurman?
Jack Black and Michael Cera go through the motions in this pre-historic comedy. The touch of producer Judd Apatow is clear to see, but sadly this film lacks the magic of his classics such as The 40 Year Old Virgin or Knocked Up. Instead, we are treated to an hour and a half of poo jokes, Jack Black’s comedy faces and a rambling trip around the bible. We deserve better than this.
