Would You Watch A 'Pretty Little Liars' Movie?

Earlier this week, “Pretty Little Liars” aired its season finale—the second most-watched episode of the season. I was one of the millions who tuned in to see if the girls would finally solve the mystery of Alison’s murder. Who wasn’t shocked when it was revealed that Ian’s body mysteriously disappeared and A was still out there? With eight novels in the young-adult series, I’m sure there’s enough material to go on for many seasons to come. But could the Rosewood girls be sleuthing for Alison’s killer on the big screen?

In a recent interview with Deadline, series writer-producer I. Marlene King was asked if the series could segue into a feature film. (Ummmm, yes please!)

“I know that Alloy would love to create a feature franchise with this,” she revealed. “We’ve talked about doing a feature film once the girls get older. But I think it’s definitely the golden age of television for women in the sense that ensemble movies aren’t getting made, but ensemble TV shows are on ABC Family and Lifetime.” Gotta love that women are taking over the tube, and more power to the networks for featuring girl-centered shows!

While we can’t wait for “PLL” to come back for season two, we’re definitely crossing our fingers to see Spencer, Hanna, Aria and Emily solving Rosewood’s mystery in theaters. But what do you guys think?

Trailer for Carrie Underwood’s big-screen acting debut is released

Trailer for Carrie Underwood’s big-screen acting debut is released

Carrie Underwood scored her first movie role in the upcoming “Soul Surfer,” and the trailer was just released, showing Underwood looking more down home like in her “Idol” days than the glammed-up country diva we all know (and love).  EW scored the first-look at the film, which tells the well-known story of Bethany Hamilton, the teenage surfer who lost her left arm in shark attack, which derails her promising surfing career before she overcomes her disability and begins surfing again.   Underwood looks believable enough playing a church youth group leader in the upcoming drama, who says stuff like “I don’t know why terrible things happen to us sometimes, but I have to believe that something good will come out of this.” Underwood’s only previous acting credit was a guest appearance on “How I Met Your Mother,” which earned her a People’s Choice Award nomination (that ultimately went to Demi Lovato). “Soul Surfer” also stars AnnaSophia Robb (better known for her Disney fare like “Race to Witch Mountain” and “Bridge to Terebithia”) as Hamilton, while Helen Hunt and Dennis Quaid play her parents. The movie is scheduled to hit theaters on April 8th.

Pre-production is beginning on the third and reportedly final Batman film “The Dark Knight Rises” and the cast list continues to rise as well. Anne Hathaway and Tom Hardy are officially joining the upcoming highly-anticipated sequel. Move over, Michelle Pfieffer and Halle Berry. Hathaway is set to step into the shoes Selina Kyle, better known as the alter-ego to the character of Catwoman. We won’t know for sure if she’s going claws out for the role. There’s no mention of Catwoman in the press release (but they might be playing their cards close to the chest like they did with Aaron Eckhart’s Harvey Dent/Two-Face for “The Dark Knight”). “Inception” star Tom Hardy, who’s been rumored to be joining the cast as a villain for months now, is playing Bane. He had originally been reported to be playing Hugo Strange. “I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Anne Hathaway, who will be a fantastic addition to our ensemble as we complete our story,” Christoper Nolan said. “I am delighted to be working with Tom again and excited to watch him bring to life our new interpretation of one of Batman’s most formidable enemies,” Nolan added.Nolan, who also helmed “Batman Begins” and “The Dark Knight,” will direct the film from a screenplay he wrote with Jonathan Nolan. “The Dark Knight Rises” is set to hit theaters on July 20, 2012.

Damon Albarn to score childrens film

Damon Albarn to score childrens film. Gorillaz and Blur frontman Damon Albarn is set to score a Jude Law-narrated short film. It’s a little disingenuous to call it a Jude Law or Damon Albarn short film, as it’s an adaptation of a children’s book written by his sister Jessica Albarn. Ptichfork reports via The Playlist that Damon will write the music for The Boy In The Oak, which tells the story of a boy and an enchanted tree. The book was released late last year and features dreamy illustrations reminiscent of Brian Froud’s classic kids’ book Faeries. Jude Law is set to narrate The Boy In The Oak and ad and film clip director Luke Losey (who has worked with Mercury Rev and Orbital) will direct. The film will be released in the latter half of 2011.

"The King's Speech," "Glee" Lead Golden Globe Award Nominations.

“The King’s Speech,” “Glee” Lead Golden Globe Award Nominations. The 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards nominations are in and there are some surprises. While “The King’s Speech” earned the most nods with 7, including Best Picture, recent critically-panned fare like “Burlesque” and “The Tourist” also earned Best Picture nominations. “The King’s Speech,” the latest award-baiting Colin Firth drama, earned nods for Best Picture – Drama, Best Actor – Drama for Firth, Best Supporting Actor for Geoffrey Rush, Best Supporting Actress for Helena Bonham Carter, Best Director, Best Screenplay, and Best Original Score. The David Fincher-directed Facebook drama “The Social Network” and the Mark Wahlberg-starring “The Fighter” trailed with six nods each. “The Social Network” also included nods for stars Jesse Eisenberg and Andrew Garfield, while “The Fighter” picked up acting nominations Wahlberg, Christian Bale, Amy Adams, and Melissa Leo. The surprises come in the varied Best Picture – Musical or Comedy category, which honored the polarizing “Alice in Wonderland” remake, the acclaimed “The Kids Are All Right,” the Bruce Willis-starring “Red,” and the recently panned “Burlesque” and “The Tourist.” Is this a clever way to ensure “The Kids Are All Right” the win? Johnny Depp is also a double-nominee this year in the Best Actor – Musical or Comedy category, where he’s being honored for his turn as the Mad Hatter in “Alice in Wonderland,” and for “The Tourist.” Angelina Jolie picked up a nomination is the Best Actress – Musical or Comedy category, as did Emma Stone for “Easy A.” On the television front, “Glee” was the front-runner, earning five nominations, including Best TV Series – Musical or Comedy, and acting nods for Matthew Morrison, Lea Michele, Jane Lynch, and Chris Colfer.   Eight other shows, including “Modern Family,” “30 Rock,” “Mad Men,” “Boardwalk Empire,” and “Dexter,” all scored three nominations each.
