Police Mistake Celebrity Impersonator Photoshoot for Armed Criminal Enterprise

Even though the Port of London Authority only requires artists to register if they plan to be filming, not merely taking photos, the organizers of a celebrity look-a-like photoshoot are saying that, in hindsight, they probably should have. Turns out people jump to conclusions when they see a bunch of black-clad people waving guns around on a speedboat.

If you haven’t heard of the upcoming Tom Cruise movie Oblivion, let me just say this – it kind of looks like WALL-E. So it’s no surprise YouTuber Giant Mimosas decided to lay the audio from the Oblivion trailer on top of WALL-E footage. And it’s kind of perfect.

BAD IDEAS FROM SMART PEOPLE

We Didn’t Ask For This: Bob Orci and Alex Kurtzman Producing Reboots of The Mummy and Van Helsing

Remember that time I said it wasn’t worth complaining about reboots because there was absolutely no way of avoiding them? Get ready to halt any complaining now, because it was just announced that the Star Trek screenwriting dream team Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman will be serve as producers on reboots of The Mummy franchise as well as Van Helsing. Because, as we have all figured out, there is no reason to create original characters anymore, just take old ones and write new scripts.

It’s fan fiction, everyone. Hollywood has officially turned into a factory of big-budget fan fiction. By the way: Van Helsing will star Tom Cruise, so now it’s fan fiction and celebrities engaging in cosplay. Yup. Go ahead — try to deny that’s what it is.

Guillermo Del Toro’s At the Mountains of Madness Starts Filming in June

In case you were worried that Guillermo Del Toro‘s film adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft‘s At the Mountains of Madness, was just a crazed fever dream you had several months ago, set your fears aside. It’s going to start filming in June.

Producer Don Murphy (Transformers) confirmed the shoot date, though not much else is known about the production. James Cameron is also tapped to produce, and Tom Cruise and Ron Perlman are the only listed members of the cast. (Perlman confirmed his involvement in January; his character did not appear in the original novel, but will be a “no-nonsense dog sled guy.”

Cameron says that this will be an “epically scaled horror movie,” and added, “The fans certainly won’t want for a visual feast with this film.” That’s pretty promising coming from the guy responsible for Aliens.
