In a salute to truth, justice, and the American way of deplorable labor practices and predatory pricing, the first fans to see Man of Steel will be those willing to stand in line at a Walmart. Mirroring their annual “come and get trampled” Black Friday event, the retail chain is asking people to come in the morning and wait in line for a limited supply product–in this case, tickets to advance screenings of Man of Steel to be shown June 17, 7pm, just a few hours before any midnight showings. If that’s worth it to you, Walmart suggests being in line by 8am on May 18. Wear a costume! Stained sweatpants will probably be a popular choice.
No more accusing the Oscars of just copying off the Golden Globes to figure out what the good movies were. This awards season, the always-exciting elderly white men at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences are shaking things up a bit by announcing nominees three days before the Golden Globes, on January 10–an earlier date than usual to accomodate said old white dudes getting confused with the new electronic voting, which is also making its debut this year. What a historic year in awards, you guys! And Lincoln is still probably going to win them all.
Now that he’s found his true love in a 3D alien Sam Worthington, James Cameron has openly stated he has no desire to do anything but make three of four beautiful Avatar babies and live out his days under the canopy of their CGI foliage and continued income streams. Naturally, if he hopes to birth these before his ol’ blue uterus dries up, the 57-year-old director is going to have to get started soon and work quick, and to that end, he’s reportedly going to shoot all three Avatar sequels at the same time.
In a profile on Sigourney Weaver, Showbiz411 notes the actress “films Avatar 2, 3, and 4 with James Cameron. That’s right: they’re making three sequels to the blue 3D phenom all at the same time.” Weaver was pressed for more information on the topic but claimed that she doesn’t know any further specifics, saying, “I just show up,” but as ComingSoon notes, this could easily mean there will be an Avatar every December from 2014 to 2016. It probably also means Sigourney Avatar doesn’t die for at least a few movies. Spoiler.
The guy behind the violent, action-packed Confrontation Mash-Up has returned with a new edit with essentially the opposite focus: love! Though, really, the opposite of “confrontation” is more like “cowardly surrender,” so hopefully editor Patrick Peris will get around to putting that together, too. Milksops forever!
(Note: things start to get a little not-safe-for-work around 1:30, when your chances of seeing a humping Robert De Niro escalate quickly.)

As far as everyone knows, Anne Hathaway has been engaged Adam Shulman since November. Except in the batch of bikini photos that popped up over the weekend, she’s not only not wearing her engagement ring, but spending the entire time with Italian polo player Nacho Figueras and we all know Anne has a soft spot Read More …
DVDs, Blu-Rays To Soon Have More Forced Warnings, More Logos, Cool Eagle Rewarding Those Who Pay for Movies
Those noble citizens who actually bother to leave the house and pay money for movies on disc will soon be rewarded with longer, more plentiful, more garish government-mandated anti-piracy warnings. These guys are really serious about unauthorized reproduction or distribution, okay? Just look at that high school mascot eagle!
With the studios putting the new warning screens into practice this week, those who purchase Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked or other future home video releases have their movie experience preempted with the above screen–which, of course, cannot be skipped, because you’ll get your CGI chipmunks when the government says you will. This is pretty similar to the old FBI warning that’s been a laughable standard on home videos for years, except now there’s also a Homeland Security badge shoved in there to remind you that you might be a terrorist.
After ten seconds of reflecting on whether or not it’s worth the risk of ripping the film, liberating Mike Mitchell’s Alvin sequel from its pancaked panopticon, you’ll move on to ten seconds of this exciting, all-new warning:
Immigrations & Customs Enforcement Director John Morton claims that, despite the foreboding eagle, this screen is not a second threat but an educational message. The bird is merely a stern pedagogue hoping to teach us that PIRACY IS NOT A VICTIMLESS CRIME, and here’s the bird’s website if you would like to know why that is (hint: it’s because you’re stealing instead of paying people for it).
Some may point out the irony that those non-pirates who actually pay for the film are the ones subjected to the forced lecturing, but I won’t say that, because I’m not a terrorist, and I don’t want that fucking eagle coming after me. I’m just letting you know: expect more badges and birds.
DVDs and Blu-rays will now carry two unskippable government warnings [Ars Technica]
Posted by Photo Boy In accordance with the Teen Mom rite of passage, Jenelle Evans thankfully squirreled away enough of her meth money and finally got a boob job at Wilmington Plastic Surgery yesterday. If you look closely, you can see that she’s wearing a mic pack here and a cameraman is visible here, so Read More …
Ever wonder what Law & Order: SVU would be like less hokey, in French, and without either court scenes or the pedophile-judging scowl of Ice-T? Well, here’s that, sort of. It’s Polisse, the 2011 Cannes Jury Winner that follows the drama around the Paris police department’s child protection unit. The film is based on real cases, and it looks pretty heavy. And since it doesn’t have Law & Order‘s heavy reliance on guest appearances, you don’t even immediately know that of course John Stamos is the pervert.
Like an alien cat-man’s furious mummy? I guess so. See one of them get punched in their stupid face in the new TV spot below.
