How well did Wanted do?

Although James McAvoy's action film Wanted didn't debut as the No. 1 movie in the US (that honor went to Walle-E) it did open in second place with an impressive $51.1 million. Wanted was originally supposed to be released back in March, but Universal Studios decided the film was good enough to be moved to the summer. I saw both movies this weekend, and it was money well spent.

Is there a such thing as too much McAvoy?

My TV doesn't think so :) I missed James McAvoy on the Today Show this morning because I forgot he was on and I was either up too early or too late to catch it. Here's the Today Show interview if you missed it:

And you can watch the interview James had tonight on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart:

James on Tavis Smiley

I've got the link to the interview James McAvoy had on Tavis Smiley last night. It'll probably get taken down, and I haven't even seen it yet, but enjoy it while it's up:

Ewan McGregor proves his hotness

Best of Ewan posted a gorgeous new photo of Ewan McGregor and Hilary Swank from the shoot of the upcoming historical drama Amelia. I'll probably get sued by Twentieth Century Fox for posting the picture because they already tore it down from Film Releases, one of the first websites that posted new photos. Seriously, to the Twentieth Century Fox executive who makes a living scouring the internet: please don't sue me. I'm trying to help with free promotion for the film. I'm not making a dime from this. Anyway, enjoy the photo while it lasts.

First look at Gerard Butler in Game

This is the first photo the studio has released of the upcoming film Game with Gerard Butler. Sorry people, it's a slow news day, and all I could dig up was one photo. Here's a description of the movie from slashfilm:

Directed By Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, the two mad men behind Crank, the story takes place “in the not too distant future.” Kabel (Gerard Butler), a death row inmate, has unwittingly become a pop culture hero. Every week, millions worldwide tune in online to watch him and hundreds of other convicts battle in Slayers, an ultra-violent multi-player online game invented by technological genius Ken Castle (Michael C. Hall). To the wealthy young gamer who controls his every move, Kable is just a sim (simulation) character. To the resistance group that opposes Castle’s games as high-tech slavery, he is a critical element in their battle to take down the inventor. Caught in the crosshairs of two opposing forces and under the command of a teenager’s remote device, Kable must use his extraordinary fighting skills to escape the game, bring down Castle and overthrow the system. Game is currently scheduled for a TBA Fall 2008 release.

Wanted premier cancelled?

Wanted's official London world premier on Thursday, June 12 has been cancelled according to James McAvoy online. Someone on the imdb message board pointed out that they couldn't find this news anywhere else, but I have a feeling it's probably true.

Is John Barrowman the best kisser ever?

Got this from After Elton:

That's right, folks: You voted, and decided that Captain Jack (John Barrowman) and Ianto Jones (Gareth David-Lloyd) gave us the hottest lip-locks of the year as on-again, off-again lovers and Torchwood colleagues. (Given the nature of their working relationship, does that mean that Ianto always has to clean up the office after? Ruuuuude...)

If you didn't catch the kissing action in question, I've posted the clip after the break of their most recent smooch. And if you didn't catch the NewNowNext Awards when they aired on Saturday night, be sure to check out the whole show over here.

To check out a clip of the kiss in question you can go here. Sorry people, I wish I could embed the clip but it's too large to embed on a blog. Sigh.

Photos of Gerard Butler in the Ugly Truth

Here are some brand new photos of Gerard Butler in a hot air balloon on the California set of his upcoming movie The Ugly Truth with Ketherine Heigl. It's kind of a weird irony that today is the anniversary of the first hot air balloon - thank you google for that useless information! The photos were taken on Tuesday.

Ewan McGregor in the Spring/Summer Sunday Telegraph

Ewan appears in the Sunday Telegraph "Men's Style" Summer/Spring 2008 issue. He does briefly discuss his uncle who shared the same experience of being cast in Star Wars. Octavia Violet mentioned Star Wars a little earlier, which is a cool coincidence. You can find more lovely pictures of Ewan and the rest of the article here.
