A Closer Look: Rambo V
The OK, We Get It Part: At 63, Sylvester Stallone is currently enjoying a John Travolta-type comeback. He was pretty successful with recent returns to both his Rocky and Rambo characters, and seems to be having fun tapping into the part of us that yearns for bloody, high-octane ‘80s throwbacks.
The FAIL: This time the silent-but-deadly war veteran will battle some sort of monster à la Predator. What makes it different, however, is that Rambo will square off against this beast in the Arctic Circle. Boo – where’s the excitement in that? Will the film’s biggest action sequence involve a sled and a lost letter to Santa? Maybe Rudolph to the rescue? Not feeling the plot, but if they figure out a way to throw in an awesome snow montage like the one from Rocky IV, we’re in business.
The WTF?: The title of the film is Rambo V: The Savage Hunt, and um, this is the teaser poster.
The “Oh Yeah, Well Ours Is Better!” Story of the Week
In the wake of that blockbuster merger between Disney and Marvel Entertainment comes news that, like DC Comics itself, isn’t as exciting as Marvel, but definitely worth a mention. Basically, Warner Brothers has gone and created a new company called DC Entertainment, Inc., which will operate solely with the purpose of not fudging up any more DC properties in a variety of areas, but most importantly (to us, at least) film.
Should You Care?: If you’re a fan of comic book movies and DC properties, then yes. There will be more structure to the way DC comic flicks come to be, and the rights of some properties – like Wonder Woman and The Flash – are being taken away from their current producers with a goal to start from square one. If you could care less about Wonder Woman and The Flash, then no. And you probably aren’t reading this anyway.
The One Where Megan Fox Says Something Everyone Wants To Write About
On whether or not we’ll ever see a Megan Fox nude scene: “I can't ever imagine myself doing nudity in a film," she says. "It lives forever, especially now, with the Internet. I just can't. I just can't."
Does that mean a Megan Fox sex tape is out? She tells MTV News, "Ugh, never! That's the last thing I want to see — what I look like having sex. It would take one shot of me not looking good and I would not be able to have sex ever again, because I would always just see myself looking like a hippo having sex.” So no boobs, though the girl has no problem playing a glorified pin-up (in Transformers), a high school skank-turned-monstrous boy-eater (in Jennifer's Body) and a prostitute (in Jonah Hex). On-screen nudity? Not so much. Being known as the actress who loves to play whorish sexpots? Sure, why not!
