Today’s CRAP ON CELEBS has us talking MJ and PEPSI, a bunch of movie trailers to check out and of course the biggest movie EVER comes out today, the Avengers hit theaters at midnight…..of course…your CRAPPY BDAY and PORNO BDAY!
MICHAEL JACKSON’S estate has reached a deal with Pepsi that allows Michael’s image to be used in a new global marketing plan. The specifics will vary from country-to-country, but basically it includes: Special edition cans with Michael’s image, TV ads, and remixed versions of Michael’s songs, which will be available as digital downloads. The problem is . . . Pepsi may have been indirectly responsible for Michael’s death. In 1984, Michael’s hair caught fire while he was taping a Pepsi commercial. It was pretty serious, his scalp was burned . . . and some people say that injury triggered years of prescription drug abuse that ultimately killed him. You can see video of Michael’s Pepsi accident on today’s show blog. Meanwhile, the estate hasn’t commented on that . . . they just released a statement saying, quote, “We’re here to market the re-release of the ‘Bad’ album and Pepsi is the most effective place to do it.”
Some new trailers for you to check out…….for example the new one for “The Expendables 2” hit the web yesterday . . . and this movie looks AWESOME. From what we can tell, it’s a delightfully cheesy, old-school action flick like the first one, only WAY more over-the-top. And it includes one of the coolest one-liners in action movie history. JASON STATHAM, in a church and dressed like a monk, actually says, quote, “I now pronounce you MAN AND KNIFE,” before JACKING a guy (first of all, Jacking a guy). You can see the trailer on BELOW. While you’re there…..you can see the trailer for “The Amazing Spider-Man” which ALSO hit the web yesterday. This is NOT a continuation of the TOBEY MAGUIRE movies . . . it’s a reboot starring ANDREW GARFIELD in the title role. And it looks like they mess around with the origin story a little. The movie comes out July 3rd. And finally….”Entertainment Weekly” has the trailer for Syfy’s next fun, campy movie, “Jersey Shore Shark Attack” . . . and it’s quite epic. Obviously, it’s a play on “Jersey Shore” . . . but here, the “GTL”-life is interrupted by angry, rampaging sharks that are ON THE ATTACK. The movie premieres June 9th. The cast includes: VINNY GUADAGNINO, from the REAL “Jersey Shore”. PAUL SORVINO . . . Who played Paul Cicero in “Goodfellas”, TONY SIRICO . . . who played Paulie Walnuts on “The Sopranos” . . . and was a REAL-LIFE MOBSTER in the ’60s and ’70s. JACK SCALIA . . . who had roles on “Dallas” and “Remington Steele”, WILLIAM ATHERTON . . . who played EPA agent Walter Peck in “Ghostbusters”, and the reporter in “Die Hard” and “Die Hard 2″…..and former ‘N SYNC star JOEY FATONE . . . who’s playing HIMSELF! See the trailer on today’s show blog.
EXPENDABLES 2 TRAILER:
Two Hulk movies, two “Iron Man” movies, “Thor”, “Captain America”, and a bunch of Samuel L. Jackson cameos have all been leading up to this . . . a team of superheroes coming together to defend Earth from an invading alien army. Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, and Chris Hemsworth are back in their roles as Iron Man, Captain America, and Thor. But this is Mark Ruffalo’s first time as the Hulk’s alter ego, Dr. Bruce Banner. Eric Bana played him in 2003 for the first film. Ed Norton did it five years later for “The Incredible Hulk”. The Hulk himself is computer-generated. Jackson is back as Nick Fury, the eyepatch-wearing leader of an organization called SHIELD. He puts the team together . . . along with Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye. Thor’s adopted brother Loki is the bad guy. And he’s recruited an army from another world to help him take over our planet. Here are five reasons why “The Avengers” may be the best Marvel movie yet . . . according to the website CinemaBlend.com: 1.) It’s funnier than all the others. 2.) The final action sequence is better than all the others combined. 3.) It builds off the character development of the others and expands on it. 4.) Side characters each get their moments and help flesh out the movie. 5.) It raises the stakes without overdoing it.
