As you know if you read Mania's weekend box office report, 'Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen' did crazy good business last week, making it the event movie of the summer. Over the 5-day opener it took in $201 million domestically and $387 million world-wide.

SMURFS Movie in 3-D

Elsewhere on Mania is a report of the Belgian comic strip turned toon phenom, 'The Smurfs', coming to screens in 3D. Current projections for the long-languishing CGI film are for December 17, 2010. Plans now include a mix of CGI and live-action.

 

 

No Shanghai in Chinese TRANSFORMERS

Fans seeing 'Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen' in China will have to deal with a bit of censorship, says The Hollywood Reporter. Government officials have removed removed the name of China's biggest city, Shanghai, from the film. It sounds as if no film was cut, but rather any audible mention of the city by name was excised.

The dialogue in question involves a U.S. Miltary commander who speaks the line, "not after all the damage done in S****hai", which is now garbled on the Chinese soundtrack.

Apparently the Chinese censors are very protective of the country's image. The bleeping is the latest in a series of edits on Hollywood imports.

Guggenheim Avoids Talking About GREEN LANTERN

ThinkMcFlyThink had a chat with comics/TV/Film writer Marc Guggenheim who, as we well know by now, is part of the writing trio on the 'Green Lantern' movie. Guggenheim continues his tack of saying nothing and keeping his bosses happy.

"'Green Lantern' continues to move forward," he said. "But I can't say any more about it. I've signed a blood oath of secrecy."

He also reiterated that, where casting rumors are concerned, "I haven't read a single thing that is accurate," but admits that when casting does happen, he'll probably learn about it online like most fans.

 

 

Snyder demos WATCHMEN's Maximum Movie Mode

Forget director commentaries. The new 'Watchmen' Blu-Ray release will include "Maximum Movie Mode", in which Zack Snyder gives a virtual seminar on his movie right in your own living room (or wherever you watch your Blu-Rays).

Check out these video clips from Amazon.com in which Snyder describes and demos the new feature.

Thanks to Antonello Blueberry for the submission.

 

 

Gordon-Levitt on G.I.JOE

Actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt has carved out a rep for himself as a serious actor, doing smaller edgier movies like 'Brick' and 'The Lookout' after his run on a hit TV sitcom. So SCI FI WIre wants to know why he's made the unlikely move of playing the Cobra Commander in 'G.I.Joe: The Rise of Cobra'.

"Well, that movie has nothing to do with reality,"  the actor said. "It's really just about being an archetype. I'm just a future ruler of the world."

But at the end of the day, Gordon-Levitt wants to play with G.I.Joe for the same reason as most action figure fans.

"It's fun. It's like playing with toys. It's like being a kid and playing."

 

 

SPOILER: Stan Lee's IRON MAN 2 Cameo Revealed

Several sites, including Collider.com, are reporting what Stan Lee's cameo will be in 'Iron Man 2'.

Fans will recall that in the previous movie, Stan played Hugh Hefner and rubbed shoulders with Robert Downey Jr's Tony Stark at a party scene. It was a really fun scene if it caught you off guard.

Stan will fill a similar role in this movie. This is a SPOILER so we're presenting the news in white text to protect the innocent. Swipe it with your mouse cursor if you want to read it.

Collider's scooper says that Stan appears as talk-show great Larry King this time around. He bumps into Tony Stark and wants to know when he's going to appear on his show.

Excelsior!

I'm dying to see some casting news for Green Lantern and Captain America. I'm nominating Josh Duhammel for Capt. America

I liked Lee's cameo in IM and this next one looks like another perfect fit, but they'll have to make him look a lot older like in the first :) I want to know what cameo he'll have in Thor, hopefully he'll be an Asgardian and I guess he won't be in Capt America since he wasn't behind that character

I'm actually looking forward to GI Joe. I wasn't a fan of this line so any changes won't bother me.

Madoff gets 150 years? Not enough IMO unless he's being tortured the entire time

hanso 6/29/2009 9:21:53 AM

Madoff will be tortured by making him view Sommer's GI JOE over and over again in an endless loop till he dies.

SgtTechCom 6/29/2009 10:47:31 AM

Scarletts still hot and her and Barroness will get it on =) I  mean that in a fighting sense hahaha

Transformers 2 TITAN can you dig it?

Smallville Smallville if it wasn't for you my friend TV would just completely suck now. ( not counting HB0) and their wonderful programing.

fft5305 6/29/2009 11:29:56 AM

Haven't seen TF2 yet. Will probalby go tomorrow. Didn't want to fight opening weekend crowds.

Damn, Scarlett is hot!

That GL news was so completely non-news.

Flint521466 6/29/2009 11:56:41 AM

Scarlett's fine ass might be the only thing this flick has goin' for it.  I love me a red-head!

violator14 6/29/2009 12:40:44 PM

Yo Flint.... your Lady Jaye will get mad if she sees that post! haha

But yea.... i love me some fire-crotch myself. hehe

And is it me or does it seem like Gordon Levitt is already making up excuses for his performance as Cobra Commander. hmm.....

Butch_home 6/29/2009 1:31:34 PM

Unless he has a strict policy of not being in a movie for a character he didn't invent, thenStan will be in Captain America. He may not have created him but Cap was one of he first comics that he had written stories for. Plus he brought him back in Avengers #4.

Come to think of it, was Stan in the Punisher, Elektra or Wolverine? He didn't create those characters and I can't recall seeing him in those movies.

Matador 6/29/2009 4:57:41 PM

You know I like this site because everyone has great personnal opinions wether postive or negative but never one sided.

I checked out Rottentomatoes site it looks like a huge bunch of fags hang out there with just one sided opinions. They dissed a TF2 like they were suposed to have seen Shakespear before it rolled out making money. To stop people from watching it now low and behold Bay will be feeding them shit nuggets till his next movie!

If I wanted to watch something that would have made me think I'd watched something shitty that won an Oscar.

Heh....Marlon Wayans mention he wasn't doing any comedy in GI Joe...... funny no one told him he was comedy relief.

Don't really know who Channing Tatum is but have a bad feeling they might want to try to use him for Capt. America flick.  I hope I'm wrong.

 

 

almostunbiased 6/29/2009 5:30:32 PM

I can't wait to see Scarlet and the Baroness get it on!

FilchX 6/29/2009 7:04:03 PM

Sorry Wise I cant agree on J.D. for Cap. I cant imagine any one like RDJ/iron man following him in to battle, though nice sugestion, I truely dont know who should Play Cap. Oh on A side note I just red the Captian America: Omnibus...holly Shit was that good.

I think for Avengers they should follow the Ultimates story live with the hulk as the big bad.

I want G.I.Joe to be good but....its going to suck.

MMMMmmmm, love them Red heads.
