While checking out the Heavy video network, I stumbled onto this funny spoof song, “Don’t Say to Your Wife”. The song is a spoof of Greenday’s Good Riddance (Time of Your Life).

A new trailer has been released for John Moore’s adaptation of the best selling video game, “Max Payne”. Mark Wahlberg is Max Payne, a former police officer turned DEA agent whose family was brutally murdered and is on the run from the police for a murder that he was framed for. Add in a conspiracy, cultists, and an assassin (played by the lovely Mila Kunis) out to avenge her sister’s death, and you have one hell of a thrill ride. I loved the game and I have high hopes for the film. Keep reading to watch the new trailer, along with links to the old teasers!

From “Iron Man” to “Master Mind”? Hollywood Insider is reporting that Robert Downey Jr is teaming up with Ben Stiller’s production company, Red Hour Films, and will be lending his voice to DreamWorks Animation’s “Master Mind”, a superhero spoof.

Downey Jr., who starred as the golden avenger Iron Man earlier this summer, would be joining the dark side for this new film where he portrays a “villain who loses his will to live after accidentally killing his archrival”. Tina Fey is rumored to be joining the film’s cast.

The film has an expected release date of November 5th, 2010. The IMDB lists Gary Trousdale (Atlantis: The Lost Empire) as the director, but multiple sites are reporting that Cameron Hood and Kyle Jefferson will now be helming the film. Alan J. Schoolcraft and Brent Simons wrote the screenplay, which will be both writer’s debut film.

“I had seen so many book trailers which were exactly like every other book commercial you see: scary-voice-guy tells you what it says on the back of the book jacket. But none of those trailers ever invested you in the story. Or the characters.”

Brad Meltzer, the author behind popular DC Comics’ universe changing miniseries Identity Crisis and more recently, the Justice League of America, has created a film style trailer to advertise his new novel, “Book of Lies”. Meltzer told EW the above comment and went on to add that his goal “was to create the trailer for the greatest movie that didn’t exist. And then, like any independent film, I called in some friends. The goal was simple: we wanted to change how books are sold”

The friends that he called in to help were Joss Whedon (creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Firefly), Damon Lindelof (Lost executive producer/writer), Brian K. Vaughn (writer of Y: The Last Man), among others. They all “star” in the trailer, which can be viewed here.

It is an interesting trailer (although with a bit of over the top cheese), but does it change the way books are sold?
