It’s Hugh Jackman Mask Vs. Wolverine Jim Carrey

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:21790:]]

It’s a social media war of epic proportions as Hugh Jackman takes on Jim Carrey!

A couple of days ago saw Hugh Jackman post a video of himself on Instagram giving homage to the classic Jim Carrey Mask movie.

“Smokin’!” Jackman said as he contorted his face to look like Carrey’s from the 1994 movie.

Jackman added to the post: “#JimCarrey mate trying my best to do justice! Clearly, I should stay in my own lane.”

Jim Carrey caught wind of the impression, so he posted one his own of Wolverine on Twitter.

“Nice move @RealHughJackman Now watch me make a meal out of your biggest role. ;^>” Carrey fired back.

Maybe Jim Carrey could be the bad guy in the next Wolverine movie?

Check it out:

Jim Carrey Says Yes To More Batman Movies

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:18462:]]

Jim Carrey played The Riddler in Joel Schumacher’s 1995 Batman Forever movie, and now the actor says he wouldn’t mind having another role in the new Batman films.

Speaking with THR, Carrey says, “I’d love to work in the new graphic-novel versions of the movie.”

Carrey continues with mention he would like to work with Christopher Nolan, who is on board Batman Vs. Superman as a producer. And how about playing The Riddler again?

“I don’t know about reprising the role,” Carrey said. “I don’t think Chris Nolan would go for that, but I’d love to work with him.”

Jim Carrey was actually at one point due to work with Nolan on a film about Howard Hughes; however, it was scrapped due to Martin Scorsese‘s The Aviator, which came out around the same time.

Movie Review: Kick-Ass 2 (2013)

A Little Less Kick, But a Bit More Heart

A Film Review of Kick-Ass 2

By: Lawrence Napoli

 

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:10249:]]

Mark Millar’s brain child, Kick-Ass, is a comic series known for its extreme use of violence, language and adult situations that would make most standard issue comic book characters blush. It is meant to be an over the top, some would even argue “depraved,” depiction of people trying to be super-heroes in the real world which means real consequences like pain, broken bones and death combined with a very irreverent, comedic tone that makes for some hilarious moments. Then incidents like the Sandy Hook massacre happen, and it instantly causes some people to reevaluate the use of violence as entertainment which led to Jim Carrey (Colonel Stars and Stripes in Kick-Ass 2) recanting his involvement in the project soon after. Mark Millar made a public response to Carrey’s comment that expressed disappointment over his second guessing, and that this film’s title demands a certain level of violence not meant to exploit tragedies in reality. When comparing Kick-Ass 2 to the original, I find a film that is much less absurd, random and reckless with its use of violence and adult content which definitely has a positive impact on the overall quality of this movie. I am uncertain if the final cut was compiled with Carrey’s comments and real-world incidents in mind, but it certainly feels like it.

Having said that, Kick Ass 2 picks up almost exactly where the first film left off two years ago, and the artist formerly known as the Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) has got an axe to grind with Kick-Ass (Aaron Taylor-Johnson). Although this plot is the primary conflict that unites every character in this film, there is a much more personal journey of discovery that is happening for Hit-Girl (Chloë Grace Mortez). She’s growing up and seems to have more than her inordinately hyper (or masochistic) desire to protect the city motivating her life. Where Kick-Ass was the title character’s focus on the classic origin story, the sequel is more interested with everyone’s secret identities and how they inspire the alter-ego-vigilantism. The story promotes a strong theme of family and coming together as a group to achieve great things from both ends of the moral spectrum, but make no mistake; violence, inappropriate humor and a healthy amount of cussing remain as the principal tools to propel the plot forward which keeps the entertainment factor fairly high for the duration of the film. Writer/director Jeff Wadlow certainly took a more tempered approach on everything from plot points to dialogue to make this movie seem less like pornography and maybe that flies in the face of the comic books, but it does make for a better fiction on film. Character arcs (though pedestrian) pay off, the violence (though graphic at times) serves a purpose and the idea of the impracticality of real-life super heroes is constant.

The action in Kick-Ass 2 is carbon-copied from the first film. It is very focused on hand to hand combat and small arms gunplay, but stunt work is fairly light and explosions are few and far between. Special and visual effects are also relegated to mostly slow motion sequences, and with a budget of only $28 million dollars, you aren’t going to be witness to a grandiose spectacle this side of The Avengers, but of course, that’s the point. Kick-Ass 2 is a very efficiently produced action adventure that needs to be stingy with fights and compensates with dialogue. We’re talking about street level violence so there’s no real need for thunder gods and hulks. While the camera gets pretty close to the aforementioned action which delivers that staccato punch to the audience, let’s be clear that as overused as the word “epic” is tossed around anything and everything conceivably “Hollywood,” it can’t be used for Kick-Ass 2 in any way.

If anyone was curious what Aaron Taylor-Johnson has been up to in his spare time since 2010, guess what? He’s been living at the gym and slamming the weights, and the proof is the absolute beastly shape he’s in for this film. It actually is somewhat curious considering that his character, Kick-Ass, isn’t really the focal point for this story, but his efforts were not in vain. His action sequences are right on mark, and his performance is actually quite sincere and charismatic. He is every bit as loveable and naive as he was in the first film, and his onscreen chemistry with his costar, Ms. Moretz pays off for both actors.

You know who wasn’t hitting the gym? Christopher Mintz-Plasse. He continues to bank on the success of pseudo-acting thanks to a little character named McLovin, and if your production ever needs a scrawny smart-ass that spouts off random humor in a squeaky voice, Mintz-Plasse is your man. I’m not taking pot shots at the guy as I’m glad things worked out for his career, but roles like the one he plays in this film: The Motherf*cker, are custom built for his brand of comedy which isn’t too far removed from Jack Ass minus the painful pranks.

The rest of the supporting cast is a mixed bag of goodness. Jim Carrey, thankfully, doesn’t deliver a full-tilt “Riddler” performance as Colonel Stars and Stripes, and although this effectively caps the potential ridiculous nature of his comedy, he is still adequate in his role as the unofficial leader of “Justice Forever” and mentor to the younger heroes. The most underrated performance is that of John Leguizamo as Javier, the Mother F-er’s bodyguard, who attempts to dissuade his crazy quest for vengeance, but winds up enabling him all the same. Leguizamo’s performance is as serious and focused as Morris Chestnut’s who plays Hit-Girl’s guardian, and both men do a satisfactory job at being fatherly figures.

This film, however, is really all about Chloë Grace Mortez as Hit-Girl. She easily kicks the most ass (no pun intended) of any individual character as a combatant, but she continues to grow as an actress that has the ability to allow her demeanor and her words do the actual talking (as opposed to her fists). Despite being the youngest member of this cast, her leadership is undeniable in every scene. She has genuine chemistry with everyone, but she is the one who sets the tone. Every actor plays off her intensity so much so that it’s very easy to forget that this young lady was born in 1997.

Kick-Ass 2 is a film that keeps the exact tone from the original which is both good and bad. Familiarity is what allows a franchise to become a brand, but the sequel is a little too familiar at times leaving me starved for some form of evolution: higher stakes or bigger spectacles. This is a must-see for fans of the original, but please make note that this film isn’t quite as brazen an experience. It’s a fun little movie that once again visits the absurd notion of super-heroes in reality that are just regular people without training, unique abilities or resources. However, that too, is the point and a message concerning the real world’s desperate need for real heroes (i.e. decent people simply doing the right thing) is quite satisfying for the audience as they exit the theatre.

Chloe Moretz & Aaron Johnson Respond To Jim Carrey Over Kick-Ass 2

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:10162:]]

With Jim Carrey publically distancing himself from Kick-Ass 2, we now hear from the two stars of the film, Chloe Moretz and Aaron Johnson.

Hit-Girl and Kick-Ass state it’s just a movie.

Aaron Johnson tells Bang Showbiz:

At the end of the day, it’s a fictional piece. If you are a fan and you saw the first one, you don’t want to see the second one and be like, ‘Oh, f***ing hell, this is s**t.’ It’s got to be more ramped up. I’m a huge [Quentin] Tarantino fan and if I go see his movie, I’m expecting to see someone’s head get sliced off and blood squirt out, and I find that funny. But grotesque violence, I don’t like to watch. I mean there’s a difference. When you see Hit-Girl, you know they’re dressed up in gimp masks as superheroes – that’s what kind of funny about it … doing stupid s**t. I don’t think it promotes violence or anything like that.

And Chloe Moretz offers the following to The Sun:

It’s a movie. If you’re going to believe, and be affected by, an action movie you definitely shouldn’t go and see Pocahontas because you’re going to think you’re a Disney princess. If you’re that easily swayed, you shouldn’t be watching any film. You might go see ‘Silence of the Lambs’ and think you’re a serial killer.’ It’s a movie, it’s fake, and I’ve known this since I was a kid so that’s why I was allowed to do the movie. I don’t run around trying to kill people and cuss. If anything, these roles teach you what not to do.’

Kick-Ass creator Mark Millar had some choice words as well.

Kick-Ass 2 has a August 16th 2013 release date also starring Aaron Johnson, Chloe Moretz and Jim Carrey.

Synopsis:

Kick-Ass, Hit Girl and Red Mist return for the follow-up to 2010’s irreverent global hit: Kick-Ass 2. After Kick-Ass’ (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) insane bravery inspires a new wave of self-made masked crusaders, led by the badass Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey), our hero joins them on patrol. When these amateur superheroes are hunted down by Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse)—reborn as The Mother F%&*^r—only the blade-wielding Hit Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) can prevent their annihilation. When we last saw junior assassin Hit Girl and young vigilante Kick-Ass, they were trying to live as normal teenagers Mindy and Dave. With graduation looming and uncertain what to do, Dave decides to start the world’s first superhero team with Mindy.

Unfortunately, when Mindy is busted for sneaking out as Hit Girl, she’s forced to retire—leaving her to navigate the terrifying world of high-school mean girls on her own. With no one left to turn to, Dave joins forces with Justice Forever, run by a born-again ex-mobster named Colonel Stars and Stripes. Just as they start to make a real difference on the streets, the world’s first super villain, The Mother F%&*^r, assembles his own evil league and puts a plan in motion to make Kick-Ass and Hit Girl pay for what they did to his dad. But there’s only one problem with his scheme: If you mess with one member of Justice Forever, you mess with them all

Wait: Jim Carrey Will Play Carnage In Amazing Spider-Man 2 But Won’t Promote Kick-Ass 2?

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:10159:]]

A new rumor floating online really isn’t making much sense if it is true as it states that Jim Carrey could possibly be playing the serial killer known as Cletus Kasaday, aka Carnage, in Amazing Spider-Man 2.

The reason it doesn’t seem likely is that the actor recently bowed out of doing any publicity for Kick-Ass 2 due to all the violence in the movie.

Seems Mr. Carrey finally saw the light of day six months following the tragic events that took place in December with the Sandy Hook school shooting, and now regrets having a role in the Kick-Ass sequel (though kept the hefty pay check).

The rumors began with mention that Jim Carrey was spotted on set during filming of Amazing Spider-Man 2 scenes featuring Ravencroft, the institute for the criminally insane.

In the Marvel comic books, Cletus Kasaday is a serial killer who killed his grandmother, burned down an orphanage, killed a young girl in front of a bus, etc. He shared a cell with Eddie Brock, and when the Venom symbiote returned it spawned an offspring which bonded with Kasaday becoming Carnage.

So we are supposed to believe that Jim Carrey will go from “not being a fan” of Colonel Stars in Kick-Ass 2 to playing a serial killer named Carnage in Amazing Spider-Man 2?

There could be one possibility, and that would be if Carrey’s scenes were shot before his perceived epiphany.

If that’s the case, then we shouldn’t be holding out for Carnage in any of the upcoming sequels.

Jim Carrey Finally Endorses Kick-Ass 2 Says Mark Millar?

To bring you up to speed in regards to Jim Carrey and Kick-Ass 2, basically what happened was the actor had a change of heart after a heavy pay day about all the gun violence in the movie.

Jim Carrey is an ant-gun Hollywood liberal who was so disheartened by what happened at the Sandy Hook school shooting, that six months later he decided to stop supporting Kick-Ass 2.

Mark Millar, creator of the graphic novel of the same name and executive producer, has been responding to Carrey through various comments made, but now it seems the two have finally come to some sort of agreement.

Mark Millar took to his Twitter offering the following image of Jim Carrey as Colonel Stars including, “Finally, we have a Kick-Ass 2 image that’s been endorsed by Mister Jim Carrey.”

Must mean we can expect Jim Carrey back for Kick-Ass 3 as well.
