HELEN MIRREN PREFERS FRENCH HUMOR OVER BRIT HUMOR

Dame Helen Mirren says via The UK Telegraph“I prefer the finesse of French humour. English humour is: harsher, more scathing, more cruel and more surreal too, as illustrated by Monty Python and the TV series Little Britain, where situations are far-fetched and over-the-top. England is constantly threatened by a savage assimilation. This isn’t the case with France which remains furiously protective of its culture.”

Well, in an increasingly globalizing world – French snobbery, protecting its culture within ‘language’ is not a bad idea to have an authentic sense of self.

CHRIS PINE IS A-LISTED – FIRST BOX OFFICE STATS THIS WEEKEND

In the studio system, the workings are very much set. More Washington than innovative and welcoming of new people. Hollywood risks stagnation. The savior of Hollywood is young talent, proven enough to no longer be a risk, tougher than most for enduring the system, for convincing the town that they had the staying power to stick around enough to hold their own. Chris Pine is one such man. Listed as new A-List along with Karl Urban of New Zealand who follows closely beside and behind Pine. Hollywood 2010′s.

True fact: The box office rules this town. You can make an art house film – but the town doffs it hat to box office’s big hitters. Of these people (Sir Peter Jackson and James Cameron being two) the wheels of Hollywood spin. Who cities of people are fed. Here’s the latest takings from Nikki Finke:

FRIDAY PM/Saturday AM: Estimated Top 10 North American grosses for Friday heading into the weekend

Chris Pine Covers Hollywood Reporter: Unstoppable star Chris Pine graces the cover of the second weekly edition of The Hollywood Reporter, on stands Wednesday.

Pine is just one of a handful of hot, young Hollywood lights on which the industry is banking to replace the vaunted old guard of box office stars.

Between now and summer 2012, audiences will see Pine, along with a small group of young actors, pushing — and being pushed — into blockbuster star-making terrain.

“We need these kids desperately,” one studio producer tells THR. “And there happens to be a crop of five or six of them that are actually filling the role.”

And clearly the new status has its bonuses. As Pine tells THR, “To have just a bit more power to say yes and no is very appealing and intoxicating.”

~Posted by Horiwood.Com, Hollywood California USA. It’s a miracle that a low budget film franchise like Jackass is still ranking in the top ten proving that the American kid within, is always a winner. No one wants to grow up just yet.~

BRUCE WILLIS’ RED PREMIERE, HOLLYWOOD, 10.11.10

Karl Urban, Bruce Willis, John Malkovich and Morgan Freeman led an impressive assault on the red carpet outside Grauman’s Chinese Theatre for the premiere of RED on Monday in Hollywood.

RED is short for “retired, extremely dangerous,” and the film is an action comedy about former CIA black-ops types based on a darker graphic novel.

What ever you do, do not take any already-fiesty octogenarians, you may know, to see this film. They’ll be even more lethal than they already are! :)

SYLVESTER STALLONE’S EXPENDABLES MOVIE IS A DIE HARD GOLD MINE

Reports Hollywood blogger Nikki Finke in dew eyed fashion for old school Rocky: “I can’t blame Sly Stallone for wanting to milk The Expendables for all its worth. On his new Twitter account, Stallone says his director’s cut will be out in about six months but also “Inferno, which is the documentary, will be out soon – its hard core – everybodys on it.” What’s described as a brutal smackdown scene with former pro wrestler “Stone Cold” Steve Austin when a stunt went wrong on the Brazilian set of the movie, as well as the resulting trip to the hospital where Stallone was told he needed surgery for a spinal cord injury to his neck, are all captured in the documentary Inferno: The Making of The Expendables. Sly also just finished upThe Expendables‘ DVD commentary. “Turned out great, think you’ll like it.” He’s already soliciting opinions about Expendables II. (FYI, Sly asks everyone including his gardener about his films.) “I am thinking what would be the most dangerous places in the world to set the sequel?… Had dinner with Bruce Willis… I want him in Expendables II as a super villain. What do you think?”

I think that’s fantastic!!! Go Sly Stallone and friends. Yes. Mo’ Bruce Willis!

In August last year, Bruce said this: “I want to send best wishes to Sly,” Bruce Willis said with a grin when we spoke with him last week. “And the Governor of California, my old pal Arnold.”

Friends should look after friends. That’s the story of how California always got ahead.

BRUCE WILLIS WILL STAR IN LOOPER WITH JOSEPH GORDON-LEVITT

Mr Belvedere vodka stakeholder, Bruce Willis, has signed on to star in Looper with Joseph Gordon-Levitt the actor who resembles Heath Ledger.

Justice is on Bruce’s mind (again) these days in his film role choices. The synopsis of Looper goes a little like this: This is a film of  “hitmen whose victims are sent back in time from the future to be executed. The Loopers bump them off in the present, so there is no trace of a crime in the future.”

Very Inception-esque like Christopher Nolan‘s altering of time. Apart from boys waving guns on celluloid,  where’s the “spirit” in this film, one might ask? It has to be said though, that Willis is working with some great actors as he makes a return to upcoming movies. He’s the man. 

With Bruce being able to work Hollywood strings like he is, with the emerging set of A-List actors in Hollywood, expect the popularity and value of Belvedere to sky rocket.

HELEN MIRREN ON RED FOR FANDANGO

Dame Helen Mirren is always such a lady. Love her speel to Fandango at Comic Con, on being operative in Red. A movie that rests on the premise of a darn high tech assassin’s invasion. Helen’s level headed, Oscar winning sensibilities are always so cute and emulative worthy. 

Fandango! Whatever Helen is saying must be so working. Red is UP! 430% popularity this week in Hollywood. Nice.

NICKI MINAJ, YOUR LOVE LYRICS SING OF ACTION

No one can break a shawty situation down, like a black female rapper. That’s why we love Nicki Minaj here in America.

Love is an allusive thing in the fame game. But according to Nicki, love can be found in people of action. Not a bad philosophy.

In my [limited] observations of love, I have noticed that lust sits back and takes. Love does something always and gives.

Full fly girl lyrics follow from Minaj after the jump. She’s a fusion of Rihanna and Lil Kim with her sound and look, she hot. Moving from gimmicky, cartoonish presence, to developing a unique sound of her own. Progress and confidence looks good on Nicki Minaj.

HOLLYWOOD ACTOR CLIFF CURTIS HAS COURAGE TO LOVE, A NOVEL BY ROBERT ELLIS

Hollywood Actor Cliff Curtis has Courage To Love the Middle East

Hollywood actor and film producer, Cliff Curtis holds his early edition copy of Courage To Love, the new Romeo & Juliet novel by author Robert Ellis. The modern story of forbidden love that is set in Israel and the Gaza strip, is getting good early buzz in Hollywood. Curtis describes the book as being “beautiful.”

Of this pivotal novel, Curtis features here in his hand, filmmaker Bill Birrell says: “I have been looking for a human scale story about the Middle East: but one that will both entertain and provoke. In short I believe Courage to Love is it. Not since Elie Wiesel, the Nobel prize-winning writer, has an author distilled these conflicts into such human terms.  Put another way, while the story touches on significant issues, it is really a tale of two young people and their struggle to be allowed to love each other.”

Cliff, a newly wed himself, is all about love these days and furthering love’s potential in a world wind epic romance he finds himself caught up in, in his real life. His Hollywood career also has elevation. Curtis currently stars as Firelord Orzai in M. Night Shyamalan‘s 3D film franchise, The Last Airbender and has just signed on to two films starring opposite, Zoe Saldana (of Star Trek and Avatar film franchises fame) where he’s cast as Zoe’s closest family member. Coming up, Curtis will also star with Sigourney Weaver and Bruce Willis

ZIMBIO RELEASES THEIR HOTTEST 100 CELEBRITY COUPLES LIST

Zimbio's Hot Couples List

Zimbio releases their 100 Hot Celebrities list. And because magazines like Forbes, shouldn’t be the only ones to make lists… bloggers can and should do too. I’m going to support this innovation.

Of course, in Hollywood, the list is already outdated. Three (possibly 5 of these couples are no longer!) But we still like it. I think their ranking is totally, incorrect at times… But, a nice effort Zimbio. Good work.

Britney Spears and Jason Trawicke should be added to the list. Get with it people! Barack & Michelle Obama… A-ha!

So… here they are, the hot couples of Hollywood:
