We're all pretty excited about Marvel's 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' especially after the closing credits tag at the end of 'Thor: The Dark World,' featuring Benicio Del Toro's mysterious Collector character -- but the character we're most intrigued about is, of course, Rocket Raccoon. The hero is being voiced by Bradley Cooper, and while we've gotten a peek at what he'll look like in the film, we still have no idea what he'll sound like. But now we're getting some hints as Cooper himself recently opened up about voicing the character.
There is so much hair in 'American Hustle.'
Christian Bale's disastrous comb-over/rug combo basically opens the film with a wordless monologue. Beneath that unnatural mop is the sharp mind of Irving Rosenfeld, a “from the feet up” con man making the leap from running legit (but boring) dry cleaning businesses to grifting down-on-their-luck rubes on bad bank loans. His operation starts taking off when he hooks up with Amy Adams, a natural businesswoman looking to reinvent herself. She does this with a name change, a phony British accent and, later in the film, by frizzing her hair out to preposterous proportions.
Part of the allure of seeing Marvel's 'Guardians of the Galaxy' brought to life on the big screen are the live-action renderings of Groot, the tree-like alien, and Rocket Raccoon, a glunslinging, talking raccoon. While Vin Diesel, who's voicing the former, has already given us some incite and details on his superhero character, Bradley Cooper has remained quiet on the subject. Fortunately, 'Guardians' leader Chris Pratt (Star-Lord) offered up the details.
The latest 'American Hustle' trailer has debuted on Yahoo Movies, and Sony is revving up its marketing campaign to position this to score more Oscar nominations for director David O. Russell. What'd you think? Does Russell and his all-star cast have enough juice to sweep awards season? The film seems a shoe-in for best bad hair, that's for sure.
Over and over again we've seen the trend to adapt dormant film properties for TV, but it wasn't until now we saw how 'Limitless' the idea could be. Bradley Cooper's 2011 drug trial thriller is the latest to get the TV treatment courtesy of Relativity Media, but will the upcoming 'American Hustle' star have anything to do with the 'Limitless' TV series?
Earlier this year, Bradley Cooper staunchly denied that he was being cast in a Lance Armstrong biopic being produced by J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot production company, calling the rumors "nuts." That story has taken on a bizarre new turn now that Cooper is in talks to join a completely different film about the life of the controversial cyclist, which means he may headline a film that is a direct competitor to the film he was supposedly going to join.
