It's like Hollywood is playing a game with itself to try and make a film out of the most uncinematic objects hidden in the aged wrinkles of western nostalgia.
And we're all losing.
PEZ, you know those cheap, terribly difficult-to-load dispensers that offer chalky, semi-tastless candy out of some recognizable character's throat, is coming to the big screen.
According to Hitflix
Envision Media Arts has entered into an agreement with PEZ Candy Inc. to bring those character heads to the big screen, with Cameron Fay ("The Three Stooges" 2012 movie) primed to pen the script.
"PEZ Candy is beloved by children and adults alike," EMA CEO and founder Lee Nelson said in a statement. "With Cameron Fay we've created a world unique to Pez and a story that will touch the hearts of many."
Yes the inanimate devises that you collected for six months when you were seven will finally grace multiplexes everywhere. Maybe they will come to life and save a young boy from the sadness that accompanies his parent's divorce? Maybe they will team up and convince other toys who come to life that nothing beats motionless inactivity? Maybe it will be a 90-minute still shot of PEZ dispensers laying on someone's carpet?
We can only wait and see!
To prove he has some of the greatest fans on the planet, Chris Pratt challenged his Facebook followers to Photoshop like they've never Photoshopped before. The results were nothing short of amazing.
Customers of Jessica Alba's eco-friendly "The Honest Company" are claiming the company's SPF 30 sunscreen is less than effective, and they're (literally) turning red.
Over 58 percent of the sunscreen's reviews on Amazon are one star, and many people are leaving photos of their burns.
Step aside Cara Delevingne and take your bad interview with you. We've not a new contender for atrocious press junket of the summer.
Atlanta's Rock 100.5 Morning Show radio host Steven J. Rickman and interviewer Jason Bailey either aren't really into interviewing or are way too into making their guests uncomfortable. In this video, they spend most of the time asking some cringe-worthy questions of Kate Mara, who will play Sue Storm in the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot, and Michael B. Jordan, who will play Johnny Storm.
The two shock jocks launch into questions about race — always a good ice breaker for summer blockbuster actors. They could not understand how Mara and Jordan were to play siblings since one is black and the other is white.
Then, they laid into Mara about why she cut her hair short, because she it was so attractive before.This is a class move, which women appreciate. That was sarcasm.
Luckily, Rickman found a way to smooth the whole thing over by saying he's a "toe-man" and that Mara has great feet.
Enjoy your morning trainwreck!
And if you're curious, we've got the Fantastic Four trailer for you over at Geek Universe.
Vulture did it again. After letting Miss Piggy sing b*tch Better Have My Money and melding True Detective with Starsky and Hutch, the good people at New York Magazine decided to let Doug sing the drug-making, love ballad Trap Queen.
It's another great mash up as Doug lays out how much he loves Patti and the way she works the pole. He chronicles their drug-cooking romance with the help of the mysterious Quail Man. Skeeter watches the whole thing unfold, presumably tweaking out of his little blue mind.
Fetty Wap's great song has proven to have equally great legs. The single was released early last winter but has continued swirling around the cultural zeitgeist like the prosthetic eye of a storm.
And this is far from the first riff on Trap Queen. One of our personal favorites is Ed Sheeran and The Roots' soft-souled cover.
