Click Chick: 'Red Dawn' is back, but it's not a Russian invasion
The Cold War is over. So, you gotta come up with a new enemy if you're going to re-imagine "Red Dawn." And since Hollywood loves a remake, they've remade the film with the U.S. getting invaded by a group of people with a new class of weapon. Chris Hemsworth stars as a Marine who's goign to take his country back . . . along with Connor Cruise (son of Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman).
Robert Pattinson was on The Daily Show. It was his first interview since his girlfriend, actress Kristin Stewart, revealed she'd had an affair with the married director of her last film. To make him comfortable, Jon Stewart gave him some ice cream and some girl talk. RPat didn't reveal much, but it was pretty funny. You can watch the episode here.
What's new on DVD? The only one worth talking about is "Jaws" now on Blu-ray. FYI, "Jaws" opened with a $7 million weekend, but eventually overtook "The Godfather" and took in $86 million. It was the highest grossing film until "Star Wars." And here's an interesting tidbit from Wikipedia, it was the first movie to reach $100 million in rentals.
Cute Animal Video: Dog loves baby. Dog cuddles baby. But then again, labs love and cuddle with everyone. And the baby giggles. Enough said.
Martin Scorsese is making a film about the life of Frank Sinatra, according to Vulture. No word on who will play the crooner.
The Price is Right is looking for male models. I don't even know what to say to that. Could you imagine being that guy? "So what do you do?" Model: "Um....I'm like Vanna White." Read the CNN report and remember to get your pets spayed and neutered.
English teachers rejoice. They've made what looks like a pretty decent, big screen version of "Great Expectations." You can watch the trailer here.
