Will Rogers is said to have said that "a fool and his money are soon elected." That was so 20th century. Were he around today he'd know to say "a fool and SOMEONE ELSE'S money are soon elected."
Perfectly timed for this November's battle at the ballot box, 'The Campaign' is a much needed jaundiced look at all that is wrong with the current brand of American democracy. It is the third fast-paced film about modern politics, after 'Recount' and 'Game Change,' from director Jay Roach. When the YouTube mashup artists get their hands on all the material, there will be many stretches where it will be impossible to tell which of the three films is fictional.
Visionary director Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's literary classic 'The Great Gatsby' was set to thrill audiences this December, but it looks like Warner Bros. has had a change of heart and isn't releasing the film until next summer.
Even more exciting than the upcoming 2012 Presidential Election, Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis are going head-to-head in the political comedy 'The Campaign,' coming to the big screen August 10. If the trailers gave us any indication, it's going to be a lot of hair pulling, crossbow slinging, baby punching and all the drama you'd imagine coming along with a congressional election. We know you want a front-row seat to this showdown, which is why we've got a ton of 'Campaign'-related swagger and gear for you to win.
'The Dark Knight Rises' theater shooting in Colorado has taken an emotional toll on the country, and none seem more sympathetic to the victims and their families than Warner Bros. Not only have director Christopher Nolan and the 'Dark Knight' cast expressed their condolences, but the production company has taken further steps in consideration of this tragic event at the expense of its upcoming flick 'Gangster Squad.'
Everyone has heard about the tragedy that struck moviegoers last weekend when a crazed maniac unloaded his weapons onto innocent civilians watching a midnight showing of 'The Dark Knight Rises,' killing 12 and injuring 58 others. Now Warner bros. hopes to help ease the pain and suffering by donating to those affected by the tragedy.
On the heels of this morning's shootings at a 'Dark Knight Rises' screening in Aurora, Colorado that left 12 dead and 50 injured, Warner Bros. is considering cancelling screenings of the film across the country.
A brand new TV spot for 'The Dark Knight Rises' is now online, and it showcases some of the humor that has been left out of the previous TV spots and trailers. (And also out of the previous Batman films.)
After Warner Bros. released 10 snapshots from 'The Hobbit' movie and Peter Jackson unveiled the latest poster for Comic-Con 2012 on his Facebook page, fans of both the book and 'The Lord of the Rings' franchise have been waiting to get their hands on the next sneak peek. Well, it's finally here in the form of a lengthy scrolling image that reveals 10 scenes from the upcoming movie (the first two are shown above).
Hold on a second...Bane is in this movie? And Catwoman? Well, how did they manage to sneak those guys in? It's not like anyone knew what the story of 'The Dark Knight Rises' was going to be about because no new synopsis was ever released. Now that one finally has, this movie sounds like it could be all over for Batman!
