    Batman 3

    Eddie Murphy Shut Up, Internet, Part I Warner studio boss Alan Horn sets the record straight by saying, more or less, “Calm down, geeks. None of the casting rumors floating around the Web are true.” Sometimes no news is good news, because nobody really wants to see Eddie Murphy as the Riddler and Shia LeBeouf as Robin, do they?

    Iron Man 2

    Shut Up, Internet, Part II Tim Robbins might play Tony Stark’s dad in a flashback that sets up the Avengers and Captain America movies. OK, let’s all agree to stop with the casting rumors. Is it really necessary to get excited about the possibility of someone being in a flashback sequence that might be related to two other movies that are at least a couple years away?

    I Love You, Man

    Judd Apatow Man, This Sucks It looks like a Judd Apatow comedy. It’s got the cast of a Judd Apatow comedy. But watch the trailer and you’ll know: this ain’t a Judd Apatow comedy. The secret to Superbad, Knocked Up and Forgetting Sarah Marshall is that they’re all plausible scenarios that ordinary dudes can relate to. But man-dates? Uh, no. Nobody does that. I’m a reasonable approximation of a man, and I’ve never had to go on a damn man-date to find a best friend. And no, I’m not going to use the term “BFF.” Because I’m a man.

    Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian

    Lincoln McMuseum? The teaser’s pretty great – who knew Abraham Lincoln was funny? – but the Happy Meal sponsorship is a sign of the Apocalypse. If I have to start going to fast food websites to watch movie trailers, I may go back to reading books.

    Land of the Lost

    Lost Cause A list of awesome things about the poster: 1) Danny McBride is in it. That sure was a short list.

    Fast & Furious

    Diesel Out of Gas You know your career is in trouble when you play second fiddle to a car on the poster.

    Judge Dredd Remake

    Sly Stallone Dreddful Just because someone screwed the pooch on the first adaptation, doesn’t mean a remake is a horrible idea. OK, it certainly sounds horrible. But this time the company that made 28 Days Later is doing it, and I’m pretty sure they’re not speed-dialing Sly Stallone and Rob Schneider.

    The Great Gatsby

    As Seen on TV Baz Luhrmann wants to adapt the classic F. Scott Fitzgerald book. Wonder if he was watching the season finale of Entourage when he got the idea …

    The Green Hornet

    Seth & Kevin Make a Hornet? Stephen Chow’s still playing Kato, but he’ no longer directing due to the standard “creative differences.” Maybe this will get Kevin Smith to reconsider the gig he quit a couple years ago.

    I Love the ‘90s What a great decade for crappy thrillers about psycho chicks. The Hand That Rocks the Cradle. Single White Female. The Temp. Hey, if you missed the last one, you’re in luck – because they made it again!
