Today isn't a particularly special day, but for whatever reason, the powers that be releasing movie trailers decided to drop three on us today. They range from a wartime drama to a children's animated picture to a romantic thriller.
Katherine Heigl and Alexis Bledel star in a new film called Jenny's Wedding. A less political or groundbreaking lesbian film than something like Freeheld or Carol, it tells the story of a woman named Jenny (Heigl) who wants to marry her partner, Kitty (Bledel), and has yet to come out to her family. Wackiness ensues. Check out the new trailer above!
"Get a hammer."
Home Sweet Hell doesn't look like it'll be winning any awards for subverting dominant cliches about women or mental illness (though trailers can be deceiving), but dang if Katherine Heigl isn't compelling as a woman who takes all the self control of her Stepford Wife Life and turns it to murder most foul after being the butt of a major betrayal of that Stepford illusion.
And the combination of dishwashing gloves and a katana sure doesn't hurt.
Not a Misprint
What film has earned this dubious honor? That would be…
Bloody Good Fun
While the Muppets now belong to Disney
, The Jim Henson Company
is still working on its own projects, and to prove it, they've released concept art from a new project called The Happytime Murders
. From the looks of it, it looks like a cross between Who Framed Roger Rabbit
and Peter Jackson
's Meet the Feebles
, but probably with slightly less, um, we'll call it "adult content." The R-rated film, said to be a comedy, is still in the early stages of production, but one name floating around to play one of the non-puppet roles is Katherine Heigl
. Hmm. So, someone finally stopped her from making stupid, stupid romantic comedies! That's good to hear.

It has not been confirmed as truth, but tech site This Is My Next
has apparently spoken to people in the possession of an Android
phone by HTC
-- the HTC Bliss -- that is meant to be designed specifically for women
. Above is their mock-up of what it could look like, based on the information they've received. You'll note that it is indeed not pink or purple, it is a sort of seafoam green. Because such a color has "calming properties." And here we go!
