Anne Parillaud in LA FEMME NIKITA, Natalie Portman in LEON: THE PROFESSIONAL, Milla Jovovich in THE FIFTH ELEMENT and THE MESSENGER: THE STORY OF JOAN OF ARC, Rie Rasmussen in ANGEL-A, Louise Bourgoin in THE EXTRAORDINARY ADVENTURES OF ADELE BLANC-SEC, Dianna Agron in THE FAMILY, Bridget Fonda in KISS OF THE DRAGON, Kate Nauta in TRANSPORTER 2, Salma Hayek and Penelope Cruz in BANDIDAS, Zoe Saldana in COLUMBIANA, Maggie Grace in TAKEN 2 and LOCKOUT, and Amber Heard in 3 DAYS TO KILL. What do all these fantastic femme fatales have in common? The answer is writer/director/producer Luc Besson.
Since Besson loves girls with guns, it was only a matter of time before he crossed paths with the current queen of the sub-genre Scarlett Johansson. The result is LUCY, a sci-fi actioner that, if the trailer below is to be believed, is a mayhem-filled mix of WANTED, FLOWERS FOR ALGERNON, THE MATRIX, and …MARIA FULL OF GRACE? Sounds weird, but looks awesome. Check the pic to check it out!
Per Deadline: Keanu Reeves has signed on to star and executive produce writer/director Eli Roth’s upcoming psycho-sexual thriller KNOCK KNOCK. In the film, Reeves will play a happily married family man whose life is turned upside down when two beautiful girls show up at his house and menace him while his wife is out of town.
Lorenza Izzo (Roth’s muse as of late, having co-starred with him in AFTERSHOCK and headlined his Netflix series HEMLOCK GROVE and cannibal pic THE GREEN INFERNO) and Ana de Armas (BLIND ALLEY) are on board to play the girls. Ignacia Allamand and Aaron Burns, both of whom also appeared in INFERNO, play the man’s wife and best friend respectively. Colleen Camp (CLUE) will play an unspecified role.

Since AngieBee and I are a week from re-debuting of the T.G.I.F. (Totally Gratuitous and Inappropriate Friday) column, I thought maybe it would be a good idea to prep all you readers out there for the upcoming onslaught of nudity, violence, and f*cked up imagery with a little teaser. You know, just something to give an idea of how it’s going to be around here on Fridays from now on. That way you’ll be prepared …or warned.
What follows are two incredibly NSFW videos, courtesy of the demented deviants over at The Huffington Post and Digg, that collect every single moment of sex (So much skin! Good, bad, okay, alright, not okay, not alright incredibly disturbing …it’s all here!) and violence (5179 kills!!!) from the first three seasons of GAME OF THRONES. If you’ve been watching the show, you already know what to expect. If you haven’t, this may not be the best intro to it. Either way, it’s still pretty shocking to see all bundled together like this. I mean, seriously, has there ever been a show as over-the-top gratuitous and blood-soaked as THRONES? I don’t think so.
Quick note: It should go without saying that these videos are very heavy on spoilers and stuff you probably shouldn’t watch with your loved ones, co-workers, family, friends, neighbors, and whoever, but I’ll say it anyways. I don’t want you coming back and blaming me later if you get yourself dumped, fired, or divorced. That having been said, click the pic and check them out!
Director James Cameron, he of AVATAR, TITANIC, and THE ABYSS, took part in one of Reddit’s “Ask Me Anything” sessions yesterday and the results were …not nearly as pompous as I was expecting. Dude was actually funny, likable, and very fanboy friendly. Impressive. Almost every interview I’ve read or seen with the guy prior to this has made me think he was an egomaniac who unapologetically borrowed elements from other works for his own without giving credit and actually thought he really was the “King Of The World”. After this, I might have to re-evaluate that opinion a bit.
