LGBT Group Plans 'Ender's Game' Boycott

Publicity Photo Publicity Photo

Geeks OUT isn't backing Harrison Ford's next movie and they're urging the rest of Planet Earth to do the same.

The LGBT organization is calling for a boycott of "Ender's Game," the big-budget adaptation of the 1985 sci-fi novel by Orson Scott Card. The author's anti-gay views have been well-documented.

The cleverly named Geeks OUT is an organization that works for the empowerment of gay people who love and participate in geek culture. They've launched, which urges filmgoers to do exactly what the domain name suggests.

"By pledging to Skip Ender's Game, we can send a clear and serious message to Card and those that do business with his brand of anti-gay activism - whatever he's selling, we're not buying," reads a statement on the site. "The queer geek community will not subsidize his fear-mongering and religious bullying. We will not pay him to demean, insult or oppress us." Get More »

The 15 Worst Accents in Movies Ever

Killing Season Millennium

So many actors have tried, and so many actors have failed. Accents have long proven to be one of the hardest things to hone when it comes to a film role. While Irish seems to be the most challenging of dialects to lock down, there are also other accents — even American — that have yet to be mastered in cinema.

Playing a Serbian posing as a Bosnian in the upcoming "Killing Season," John Travolta is going a rare route. It's debatable whether he can pull it off, but he doesn't have to worry about sounding all sorts of wrong if he's in the company of these actors with the worst movie accents. Get More »

The 9 Most Against-Type Against Type Performances

The Bling Ring A24

This week the former star of "Harry Potter" gets hotter as the squeaky-clean Emma Watson shows off her inner bad girl in Sofia Coppola's "The Bling Ring," where her character Nicki commits a series of robberies against celebs like Paris Hilton. For the 23-year-old Watson, who shot to fame as goodie-two-shoes wizard Hermione Granger in the "Potter" movies, this role marks a distinct departure from both her on-screen and real-life images. The only thing more shocking would be if Lindsay Lohan maintained sobriety for six months. Get More »

Liam Hemsworth Discovers 'Paranoia' Strikes Deep In New Trailer

Some movies have such high concepts that explaining to audiences what the story is about in a two minute trailer becomes almost impossible. And then there's the new Yahoo! Movies trailer for "Paranoia," which is also very complicated but which has come up with a simple way to distract viewers from its labyrinthine plot: Lots of shirtless Liam Hemsworth.

That's why Hollywood producers get the big bucks. Get More »

Will Ferrell's "Anchorman" sequel's subtitle might be "The Legend Continues" but it should probably be re-dubbed "A Series Of Potentially Distracting Cameo Appearances" (although that would be really hard to fit on the marquee). Kanye West, Tina Fey, Kristin Wiig, Nicole Kidman, Sacha Baron Cohen, Amy Poehler (whom "Anchorman" die hards will remember had a sizable role in the first film, only to see her entire subplot deleted from the final product), Liam Neeson, John C. Reilly, Jim Carrey and Harrison Ford have all shot cameos for the hotly anticipated sequel (also: an animatronic shark).

The latest celebrity to be roped into this cameo feeding frenzy? None other than Canadian rapper Drake.

Lawrence Kasdan Strikes Back: The Original Script for 'Star Wars: Episode V'

Lucasfilms Lucasfilms

It's one of the most famous exchanges in the history of cinema: Han Solo and Pricess Leia's heartfelt goodbye in "Star Wars: Episode V — The Empire Strikes Back." Just before Han is frozen in carbonite by the sinister Darth Vader, Leia reveals her love and he simply answers, "I know." So insouciant. So perfect.

And as we now know thanks to SlashFilm, so completely different from what screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan actually wrote. Get More »
