Josh Brolin, Megan Fox, Jonah Hex: Match Made in Comic Heaven

In the belly of the Comic-Con International beast, Josh Brolin came right out and said it: he doesn’t actually like comic books. ”I didn’t read comic books when I was a kid,” Brolin told a roomful of reporters. ”I read a lot of Ray Bradbury.”

Fresh from a Comic-Con International panel featuring clips from Warner Bros.’ forthcoming Jonah Hex movie, Brolin, who stars as the bitter D.C. Comics character, nonetheless said he was thrilled by fanboy response to the Hex teasers. ”No bullshit: to have 6800 people in a room react like that is pretty amazing. It was nice to feel the buzz in the audience.”

Director Jimmy Hayward, a Jonah Hex devotee, concentrated on remaining true to the spirit of the comic book while Brolin focused on putting his own spin on the character. [Read more…]

 

Comic-Con: 15 Minutes of Jennifer’s Body Screened

Tonight Fox showed off what is roughly the first fifteen minutes of Jennifer’s Body, and followed the presentation with a brief mini-press conference featuring star Megan Fox, director Karyn Kusama, writer Diablo Cody and producer Jason Reitman. The footage surprised me; I didn’t think much of the trailer, but really enjoyed the vibe that was given a chance to develop over these early sequences that set the film’s tone. I walked away thinking of Jennifer’s Body much as I did Drag Me To Hell last year: this could be a smart but (in some ways) old-school horror film created by people who love the form. [Read more…]

SDCC: The Jonah Hex Panel!

The world’s first look at Jonah Hex just screened in SDCC’s Hall H. Though it had the look and feel of a trailer, director Jimmy Hayward seemed to say that it was a special SDCC-only presentation. He also made the note that, while the film has some supernatural stylings, there’s no Voodoo king or army of the dead.

We’re told about Jonah Hex as we see him and someone asks how he got his scar. He says that he’s never told anyone the story, though we see a flash of him being branded. A voice tells us that, since then, he’s walked with one foot in life and one foot in death. [Read more…]

Megan Fox Wants to Be as Pretty as Robert Pattinson

“I would eat Robert Pattinson so that I could steal some of that pretty,” Megan Fox jokingly told E! News in a brief interview on the red carpet of 2009 Comic Con International in San Diego. “I just wanna be pretty like he’s pretty. I want that James Dean, that sexy-ass hair”, she added.

Megan Fox attended the star-studded event to promote her latest big screen movie “Jennifer’s Body”, in which she stars as Jennifer, a cheerleader who is possessed by a demon and starts feeding off the boys in a Minnesota farming town. She co-stars the likes of Amanda Seyfried, Adam Brody, and Johnny Simmons among others. The comedy-horror-thriller flick is slated for September 18 U.S. release. [Read more…]

Megan Fox doesn’t want to be like Britney Spears

Megan Fox told Britain’s Heat magazine she doesn’t want to be swarmed by the paparazzi like Britney Spears.

“Daniel Day-Lewis is incredibly successful, and he’s not being followed by the paparazzi. You put yourself in that position,” said Fox. “You never see Nicole Kidman in the tabloids like you see Britney Spears and Jessica Simpson.”

“If I were to go out and make a scene in every club in New York and L.A., eventually I would start getting a lot of press in the tabloids. But is that something I want?”

I’m thinking the answer might be “yes,” considering how outspoken Fox is.
