I interviewed Chanel Preston last week and ran this picture, courtesy of www.ChanelPreston.com but wanted to share it again. Just because.
Who's greeting us this week? None other than Raylene! I was a guest on her show, Celebrity Sex, this past Wednesday, and we ran through some of the more gossipy news out of Hollywood. She's just as awesome as you'd expect and make sure you listen to her show on Vivid Radio on SiriusXM Ch 102, every Wednesday at 5 PM PST!
Last week Gina Carano and Gal Gadot went at it. The results:
Gina Carano 65.54%
Gal Gadot 34.46%
While Gal won the role of Wonder Woman, it was Carano who won your hearts. Gal has an uphill battle in front of her. Good luck! Adrianne Palicki has said in the past, "I think Eva Mendes is gorgeous. Angelina Jolie's stunning. Gwen Stefani is pretty sexy, too. Pink! Is it weird that I have a crush on Pink? I have a crush on some women who I actually think might be interested in doing it." So I grabbed the first name off the list and matched them up!

Whoa! The Electro Arrives viral site dropped some news on us! Sony Pictures officially announced films based on Spider-Man properties Venom and The Sinister Six, with Daredevil'sDrew Goddard on board to write (and possibly direct) the latter. The official release:
CULVER CITY, Calif., December 12, 2013 – In a move to forge a new legacy in the story of Peter Parker on screen, Sony Pictures Entertainment, in association with Marvel Entertainment, is developing several new projects in the Spider-Man franchise, with Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Jeff Pinkner, Ed Solomon, and Drew Goddard to collaborate on overseeing the developing story over several films that will be produced by Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach, it was announced today by Doug Belgrad,president of Columbia Pictures, and Hannah Minghella, president of Production for the studio.
The five writers, along with the two producers and Marc Webb, have formed a franchise brain trust to expand the universe for the brand and to develop a continuous tone and thread throughout the films. Under the deals, the studio announced that Kurtzman & Orci & Pinkner are writing the screenplay for The Amazing Spider-Man 3, which the studio hopes Webb will return to direct; the film will go into production next fall for release on June 10, 2016. In addition, the team will build on the cinematic foundation laid by Webb, Arad, and Tolmach in the first two movies. They will expand the franchise as Kurtzman & Orci & Solomon will write the screenplay for Venom, which Kurtzman will direct; also, Goddard will write, with an eye to direct, The Sinister Six, focusing on the villains in the franchise. Hannah Minghella and Rachel O'Connor will oversee the development and production of these films for the studio.
In tapping these five writers, the studio and the producers are guiding the future of the franchise with the writer/producers who have each played significant and key roles in developing such highly successful franchises, films, and series as Star Trek, Transformers, "Alias," "Fringe," Men in Black, Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, World War Z, "Lost," Cloverfield, The Cabin in the Woods, and Marvel's upcoming "Daredevil" series.
Commenting on the announcement, Belgrad said, "The Spider-Man film franchise is one of our studio's greatest assets. We are thrilled with the creative team we have assembled to delve more deeply into the world that Marc, Avi and Matt have begun to explore in The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2. We believe that Marc, Alex, and Drew have uniquely exciting visions for how to expand the Spider-Man universe in each of these upcoming films." Arad and Tolmach added, "This collaboration was born out of the great experience we and Marc had working with Alex, Bob, and Jeff on The Amazing Spider-Man 2. With more than fifty years' wealth of stories in the comic books to draw upon for inspiration, the Spider-Man universe is truly boundless; in addition, the Spider-Man comics have the greatest rogues gallery of any series, and to have the chance to explore that on film is truly thrilling. Until now, we have approached each film as a separate, self-contained entity, but with this move, we have the opportunity to grow the franchise by looking to the future as we develop a continuous arc for the story. That is what Alex, Bob, Jeff, Ed, and Drew will do in this unprecedented collaboration, and we're excited about the directions they are taking the character and the world."
The most successful franchise in the history of Columbia Pictures, Spider-Man is embraced all over the world. The four Spider-Man films to date have taken in over $3.2 billion worldwide.
Spider-Man, Venom, The Sinister Six and other Spider-Man related characters are licensed to Sony by Marvel Entertainment.
But what of Spider-Man? Andrew Garfield has been discussing his long-term future as Spider-Man, and seems non-committal over the prospect of continuing the role beyond the three films he had initially agreed to. "I mean I'm under contract for another one after this," begins Garfield. "As far as a fourth one? That's not anything to do with me."
To see Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, and Marc Webb provide a world exclusive trailer breakdown for your friendly neighbourhood Total Film, check out the video below.
Thoughts on all the news rolling out?
A new report claims that Don Cheadle will be reprising his role as Rhodey in Avengers: Age of Ultron. USA Today reported that while covering Cheadle's Golden Globe nomination for House of Lies that Cheadle will appear in the Joss Whedon-directed film, which releases on May 1st, 2015. The report specifically notes that Cheadle "has a part to film in the next Avengers movie and then over the next few months will prepare to star in and direct a highly-anticipated Miles Davis biopic."
This is the first report that Cheadle would be appearing in the film; he has not been announced at this point and USA Today makes no reference of a source for their story. Disney and Marvel have yet to comment.
He should be a cool addition to the movie.
Gisele! Gisele Bundchen upset a lot of women. Bundchen shared a photo on Instagram Tuesday of her getting ready for the day after hours of traveling. But the 33-year-old wasn't going to put her mommy duties on hold for her modeling duties. So, instead, Bundchen decided to multitask by breastfeeding beautiful baby Vivian Lake while having her team work around her, getting her prepped for a day's work.
"What would I do without this beauty squad after the 15 hours flying and only 3 hours of sleep #multitasking #gettingready," she wrote. Seems like the mother's of the world didn't take too kindly to that and have been calling her out.
Models. They're just like us!
Oh, Joel! Joel Kinnaman has been talking to SFX about what we can expect from the new RoboCop, and is quick to stress that the film is more than just a retread of the original adventure. "When I first heard there was gonna be a RoboCop remake, I thought, ‘Maybe I'll see that somewhere down the line, but it's nothing I'm interested in pursuing myself,'" explains Kinnaman, candidly. "Then when I heard it was José Padilha that was gonna direct it, I became very interested. José has fought very hard and succeeded in making something that has a point of view, and a political and philosophical perspective."
And as for the film's relationship with the original, Kinnaman says it will contain respectful nods rather than wholesale plagiarism. "It's a great responsibility," says the actor. "Especially in a world where there's a lot of remakes being made for cynical economic reasons. But having José as a director washed away those fears. The biggest respect you can pay to the original is to acknowledge it as a very intelligent movie, and try to make something intelligent to follow it up with, and not just replay old catchphrases. We kept one or two as a wink to the fans, but we did not try to remake the movie."
So, it's a remake that's NOT a remake. Gotcha.
What's the VIDEO BUZZ?
Here is the first trailer for Edge of Tomorrow. The film opens on June 6th, 2014 and stars Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt, Bill Paxton, Kick Gurry, Dragomir Mrsic, Charlotte Riley, Jonas Armstrong and Franz Drameh.
Lt. Col. Bill Cage (Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously dropped into what amounts to little more than a suicide mission. Killed within minutes, Cage now finds himself inexplicably thrown into a time loop—forcing him to live out the same brutal combat over and over, fighting and dying again…and again. But with each battle, Cage becomes able to engage the adversaries with increasing skill, alongside Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski (Blunt). And, as Cage and Rita take the fight to the aliens, each repeated encounter gets them one step closer to defeating the enemy.
