As Sarah Jessica Parker and co prepare themselves for a return to the silver screen this summer, Universal have kindly gone and released a brand-spanking new Sex and the City 2 trailer. Following on from 2008’s massively successful Sex and the City, this summer’s most anticipated must-see chick flick sees the continuation of the fab foursome’s New York escapades.
Following hot on the heels of the news that family favourite Monopoly is to be immortalised in movie form, we can report that Taylor Kitsch has been recruited to star in the film version of the Hasbro board game Battleship. Universal are the ones responsible for the the Battleship movie (as it is referred to in the bestforfilm towers), with Peter Berg manning the directorial helm.
Attention fans of the cult 80s series – a new trailer has been released for one of this summer’s most anticipated movies. The 20th Century Fox produced affair, eponymously entitled The A-Team, sees a quartet of Iraq War vets trying to clear their name with the U.S. military for a crime they did not commit.
In news that is set to send shudders through the spines of cinema-goers everywhere, Universal have confirmed that they are preparing the sequel to 2003’s Johnny English, tentatively titled Johnny English 2. Starring Rowan Atkinson, Johnny English 2 will see the resumption of the adventures of Britain’s least favourite spy hero, as Universal attempt to steer away from adult-skewing serious movies in favour of light-hearted comedy.
Now we here at bestforfilm are all a bit partial to a bit of Adam Sandler (some more begrudgingly than others). Yes, he finds himself perpetually playing the same zero-to-hero role, but if it the down-on-his-luck-loser-inevitably-finds-success-and-the-girl formula ain’t broke then why fix it? (And truth be told, the less said about Señor Sandler trying to break out of his mould, cough Punch Drunk Love, the better.)
The Hollywood assault upon 3D cinema looks set to continue unabated (this time with added bite) as former stuntman David R. Ellis announces that he has signed up to direct forthcoming horror film Shark Night 3D. The title, which leaves little to the imagination, will no doubt be looking to avoid comparisons with the film so bad that the use of 3D in cinema was shelved for 20 years, 1983’s universally-panned Jaws 3-D.
If the results of Radio Times’ latest poll are anything to go by, men might actually descend from Mars and women may hail from Venus. The magazine’s quest to discover the nation’s favourite film sirens saw Ursula Andress top the list voted by men, with Audrey Hepburn triumphing in the women’s poll.
For fans of 2009’s smash hit The Hangover it’s time to rejoice, as we can confirm that the original movie’s troublesome trio of Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis have all signed up for the film’s sequel. Despite earlier hesitance from the movie’s stars to commit to the sequel, it is proposed that shooting for The Hangover 2 will commence sometime in July, with Cooper reportedly so eager to commence filming that he has pulled out of rom-com This Means War (which was also due to commence filming in July).
