It's a small movie called Avatar. Heard of it? And who says Fox is catty?

It's a small movie called Avatar. Heard of it? And who says Fox is catty?

Erik Davis fills in for Stacie Hougland with this week's Buzz Bin...

  • Avatar


    Blue Summer What's better than a trailer that no one seems to like? How about free tickets to a 16-minute preview of a movie that comes out in four months? Those internet savvy fans aware of Avatar Day half-packed IMAX theaters across the world this past Friday in order to get a peek at James Cameron's epic ode to the color blue in glorious 3D. Reactions were a lot kinder than they were for the recently-released trailer, though some folks still aren’t sold on this film being anything more than just another overly-hyped cartoon.
  • Will Smith


    Really? Most people didn’t really "get" Will Smith's turn as a boozed-up, foul-mouthed superhero in last summer's Hancock, but when a movie takes in $624 million worldwide, it don’t matter how many people hated it because daddy's gonna want a sequel. Two writers (Adam Fierro and Glen Mazzara) have been assigned the task of creating a sequel that makes a tad more sense than the original. Maybe this time we’ll find Hancock hooked on some hard drugs, whaddya think?
  • Megan Fox


    Meow And this week's traffic-whoring, blatantly false rumor award goes to Britain's The Sun for claiming that Megan Fox has been cast as Catwoman in Christopher Nolan's third Batman movie. Those gullible enough to believe it should a) seek help, and b) know that it's completely false. Next week: Conan O'Brien to play the Riddler!
  • Christopher Nolan


    Or, "Hey, It's That Movie from the Batman Guy!" Though it's a year away from hitting theaters, folks were treated to the first teaser trailer for Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight follow-up, Inception – which, apparently, is either an unofficial Matrix sequel or a two-and-a-half-hour acid trip. Either way, we're totally game! And hey, we're sick of summer movies that make you check your brain at the door, so kudos to Nolan and Co. for creating one that fries our brains at the door. Fun!
  • Mila Kunis


    Ticket Seller How else do you plan to get people to see a slow-burner ballet flick about two girls who don't like each other? A script review for Darren Aronofsky's (The Wrestler) Black Swan arrived online earlier in the week, and in it was a steamy, "ecstasy-induced, angry" sex scene between stars Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman. While we have no idea whether the scene will remain in the finished product, we do know that for the first time in history more men will be watching ballet than football.
