Didn’t Like LARRY CROWNE? Go Tell Tom Hanks, and He’ll Give Back Your Money!

Published

on

Okay, I don’t know if this is completely true, because it’s coming from the National Enquirer, but if it is, it’s awesome.

According to the Enquirer’s site, a couple encountered Tom Hanks at a gas station in California, and told him exactly what they thought of LARRY CROWNE:

Filling up at a gas station near his Pacific Palisades home, TOM HANKS smiled amiably when a man and wife pumping at the next tank suddenly recognized him and the woman blurted: “Ohmigod, you’re Tom Hanks!
“We just saw your movie, ‘Larry Crowne,’ last night!”
When Tom asked how they’d liked it, the guy gave it to him straight: “Well, not that much. In fact, it wasn’t very good.”
Horrified by hubby’s honesty, the woman turned red and told Tom: “Actually, it wasn’t that bad, we were just expecting it to be a lot better.”
Unflappable Tom – who starred in, directed and co-wrote the flick – just shook his head and said: “Gee, I’m really sorry you were disappointed. How about letting me refund your ticket money?”
Fishing $25 out of his wallet, Tom forked it over with a smile as the mortified woman protested – but hubby snatched the dough and stashed it.
A moment later, Tom finished pumping, waved at the couple as he got in his car and told them: “We’ll do a better job next time!”
Awesome…and exactly like Hanks…

Michael Douglas’ Son Says He Would Have Been Better Off Left in Jail

Published

Cameron Douglas, the son of actor Michael Douglas who was arrested on drug charges two years ago, testified yesterday that he would have been better off staying in jail instead of originally being freed on bail.

According to MSNBC, speaking as a witness at the trial of his alleged drug dealer in Manhattan, Douglas told the court that he had no idea of the treatment they had at the Metropolitan Correctional Center, a federal lockup next to the downtown courthouse:

“They provide you with methadone when you’re a heroin addict. I would have been better off if I had stayed at the MCC. I didn’t know that they provided methadone at the MCC until I got back there.”

The 32-year-old pleaded guilty to drug  charges and agreed to cooperate in a deal that got him a five-year prison term, well short of the mandatory minimum of 10 years for the charges that were brought against him.

While the hearing was supposed to be focused on his drug dealer, prosecutors spent a good amount of time asking about Douglas’ life, which he admitted could have turned out much better:

“I definitely had the opportunity to and I was too immature, too reckless…At some point, those opportunities were closed to me.”

Hulu is Battling Netflix Over “Arrested Development” Rights

Published

on

As we reported earlier this week, “Arrested Development” is coming back to television with ten new episodes and a feature film!  Yet, with that comes a massive bidding war, courtesy of a new late-entry bidder: Hulu.

According to JoBlo, after the announcement, Hulu immediately got in touch with representatives for series creator Mitch Hurwitz and and made their  pitch, promoting the fact that “Arrested Development” videos have gotten over 100 million impressions on their site since 2008.

Both Netflix and Hulu have been creating original content for the web (Netflix with Kevin Spacey and David Fincher, and Hulu with Morgan Spurlock), and who knows what the acquisition of “Arrested Development” would do for either.

Disney to Bring Back LITTLE MERMAID, FINDING NEMO, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, and MONSTERS INC for 3D

Published

on

Despite the fact that 3D films are almost definitely heading down the drain, THE LION KING 3D was a huge success for Disney.  And with that comes news of new rereleases for other Disney classics.

According to JoBlo, Disney and Pixar has decided to re-release four other films in 3D over the next three years:

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST – January 13, 2012

FINDING NEMO – September 14, 2012

MONSTERS INC. – January 18, 2013

 

THE LITTLE MERMAID – September 13, 2013

So the question is…in 2013, will 3D even be relevant enough to warrant such a re-release?  Or will the fact that these classic films will be back on a big screen enough to draw in a crowd?
