Brad Pitt Named for Odyssey, Moneyball

Brad PittIf you thought a growing household would slow Brad Pitt down, you were wrong. The actor, who is currently filming Inglourious Basterds (previously spelled Inglorious Bastards) in Germany, just recently had his name attached to two more possible projects. (Keep in mind, Angelina will eventually be abandoning the children for Edwin A. Salt.)

According to Variety, Pitt may soon be following his work on Troy with another Homer adaptation. Brad - who played Achilles in the 2004 film - is currently in discussions to take on the Odysseus-like character in Warner Bros.’ update of The Odyssey. Sadly (for me), this role would not require the 44-year-old to sport any type of toga. It’s the studio’s intention to set the classic tale in outer space.

Homer USB Lamp

For someone as perpetually lazy as Homer Simpson, he keeps finding ways to make our lives more fun, such as the Jukebox and USB hub. Now comes this USB-powered lamp, which features Homey in total Lay-Z-Boy mode, while adding LED light (and a little levity) to your desk. Available for only $17 USB. Wanna totally Simpson-ize your workspace? Check out the

mildly disturbing

Woo Hoo! The Homer Simpson USB Hub

Homer Simpson USB Hub

If you worship Homer Simpson—and in particular his questionable work ethic—check out this fun hub. Not only can you plug 4 USB

office toys

peripherals in it, just press the button and Homey spins around in his chair yelling “Woo Hoo!”. Classic! A must-have for the Homer fanatic. The base is 4” in diameter, and the hub is 5.5” tall. We love it, but think it’s a little pricey at $48 USD. But that probably won’t matter to the most hardcore “Simpsons” fans.

Mmm…Simpsons Hip Flask and Shot Glass Set

Posted by Lolita Beckwith Categories: Accessories, Hot Deals,

Simpsons Shot Glass Set

We recently told you about the Pac-Man Collectors’ Shot Glass set, and now we’ve found this item. As any Simpsons fan knows, Homer enjoys the occasional Duff beer at Moe’s Tavern. So it makes sense there’s now a 6-piece stainless steel drinking set with hip flask, funnel, and four shot glasses. Each is decorated with a picture of Homey and one of his many catchphrases. It even comes in a gift box for that special someone…we just wish it came with a recipe for a ‘‘Flaming Moe.” Available for $30 USD.

Box Office Breakdown:  Geeks Fight Off Statham, Jet Li

Superbad

No, you are correct.  Superbad is one of the few movies that has managed to stay at #1 for more than one week this summer.  The movie that only cost $20 million to make now shares the Two-Timers title with Spider-Man 3 and Pirates Of The Caribbean: At World’s End.  (And I’m guessing those movies cost a bit more to produce).

Not only did the high-schoolers hold back the action-packed War (starring Jason Statham and Jet Li), but so did the aging Bourne Ultimatum and British goof Rowan Atkinson (Mr. Bean’s Holiday).

Unfortunately, the Top 5 was so testosterone-laden that it didn’t leave any room for the film adaptation of The Nanny Diaries.  I’m wondering if more women were eager to see that hunky Statham than be reminded of their bratty kids waiting at home…

1. Superbad, Sony, $18,044,369
2. The Bourne Ultimatum, Universal, $12,472,215
3. Rush Hour 3, New Line, $11,706,643
4. Mr. Bean’s Holiday, Universal, $9,889,780
5. War, Lionsgate, $9,820,089
6. The Nanny Diaries, Weinstein Co., $7,480,927
7. The Simpsons Movie, Fox, $4,317,689
8. Stardust, Paramount, $3,872,560
9. Hairspray, New Line, $3,265,384
10. The Invasion, Warner Bros, $3,093,428


Box Office Breakdown:  It’s Super To Be Bad

Superbad

The Judd Apatow train is bound to hit a roadblock at some point—but for the time being, it’s full steam ahead.  Superbad opened impressively with over $30 million this weekend making it the third Apatow-related project in a row to accomplish this feat (the others being Talledega Nights and Knocked Up).  This is, of course, not taking into consideration the uber-sleeper hit The 40-Year-Old Virgin.

Meanwhile, there was nothing super about Nicole Kidman’s latest outing.  The Invasion, the latest version The Body Snatchers, scared up a dismal $5.9 million (and that’s despite Daniel Craig’s hunky presence).  But I predict a much stronger outing for these two later this year with The Golden Compass.

Box Office Breakdown:  Bourne Breaks Bank

Bourne

Matt Damon may still be vying for People magazine’s ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ title—but he has one thing that George Clooney and Brad Pitt don’t have:  the biggest debut for an August opening ever.

The Bourne Ultimatum‘s $70 million take improved upon the previous Bourne installments and gave Damon his largest weekend to date (and that’s including all three Ocean’s movies).

Meanwhile, Lindsay Lohan should be happy that she’s holed up in rehab again—though seeing her movie kicked out of the Top Ten would have probably sent her there anyway.  Apparently theatergoers can only handle one movie about Bratz at a time…

UK Fans Cheer for Simpsons Preview

The Simpsons  Ten full minutes of footage from The Simpsons Movie was shown to a London audience on the 4th of July, as the British were not spending the day lighting fireworks and grilling out on hot coals. Instead, they were watching a preview for the much-anticipated Simpsons big-screen premiere, which will be released worldwide later this month. The clip suggests that religion and environmentalism will be a big part of the plot, but the animated FOX series is well-known for their misleading plot placement.
