Justin Timberlake Wears Little for The Love Guru

Justin Timberlake, The Love GuruJustin Timberlake, The Love Guru

Tired of seeing repeat the same schtick over and over again? Well, if you’re a fan, you may have a whole new reason to watch The Love Guru.

The film, which opens June 20th, features Myers as an American raised in India.  He is invited to the States when his self-help advice is sought.  Timberlake, who wears very little based on the preview pics, plays an athlete who has an affair with a hockey player’s wife.  As for - I believe she stars as the vacuous beauty.

Surprising fun fact?  Not including his roles in the animated Shrek films, this is Myers’ first live-action role since 2003’s A Cat in the Hat.  It only felt like he was everywhere.

You can view the Guru‘s trailer, after the jump.

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: DreamWorks, Animation, Family,

ShrekWatch out Oprah, someone else is ready to take on the world.

Despite three big screen installments, a television holiday special and two more sequels to come - just hasn’t had enough.  Hoping to milk its green cash cow for all its worth, the film company will be branching out with its ogre.  Late this summer, will make its debut.

The stage production, eventually bound for Broadway, will first make its run in Seattle before coming to the Big Apple.  This will not be the first musical to premiere in the Emerald City.  Tony-award winning Hairspray previewed in WA back in 2002; Young Frankenstein did the same in August ‘07.

The show at Seattle’s 5th Avenue Theater is scheduled to run Aug.14-Sept. 21.

New Line Explores Animation With ‘Planet 51’

Planet 51For the first time since the company’s inception, is gearing up to release an animated film.  The $60 million was created by and written by Joe Stillman (of fame).

In case you couldn’t tell from the title, this film’s about a planet. The inhabitants therein are plagued with fear of alien invasion, a horror that is realized when Chuck Baker (an astronaut) enters their galaxy. As he tries to evade capture and return to his home planet, he makes friends with a young alien living on Planet 51.  I found every part of the plot believable until I found out the astronaut’s supposed to be from Earth. Not buying it.

The movie and complementing video game are scheduled for a 2009 release.
