Orlando Bloom is in Park City, Utah for the Sundance Film Festival for his movie "Sympathy For Delicious" and if we could tell anything from titles of movie, this one sounds rather tasty.

Orlando Bloom left the press and girls guessing as he was asked what he will be doing tomorrow and he replied; "“I have a day off tomorrow, so I’m going to try and see some movies. But if I can get ahold of some snowboarding gear, I’ll go boarding!”

So either look for him on the slopes or sneaking into some movies and we are sure a cool party or two.-Dr.FB

Carrey, McGregor Film Too Gay To Play In The USA?

The TimesOnline is reporting that the Jim Carrey/Ewan McGregor film I Love You Phillip Morris is having a very hard time finding a U.S. distributor thanks in large part to rather frank and graphic depictions of gay sex. 

The film is based on the true story of two men who meet and fall in love in prison. Carrey plays Steven Jay Russell, a Texas policeman turned con-man, and McGregor plays Phillip Morris. 

Phillip Morris premiered at Sundance this year, and received mostly lukewarm reviews. But that isn't apparently what's stopping the film from picking up a distributor. According to Lewis Tice, director of marketing and publicity at TLA distributors, "“The depiction of the sexual activity was far more than I’ve ever seen in a mainstream film with a mainstream celebrity. There’s a graphic sex scene in the first ten minutes that I was surprised to see.” Variety magazine described one scene as a "spectacular, ride-em cowboy sex scene."

Fears are that the graphic nature of the homosexual sex scenes has relegated Phillip Morris to straight-to-dvd hell. For now, the $13 million indie remains in limbo, though producer Andrew Lazar still holds out hope for a distributor and a U.S. theatrical release.

Video: “Push” Trailer

We talked about the movie before and figured we should hit you up with the trailer before you "push us to.  Eek.  That was as bad as it sounded.  Regardless, enjoy the trailer.-Dr.FB

(Please Note: This is NOT the Tyler Perry "Push".  Yea, yea, we know we got them mixed up.  But thank you to those that noticed.  I appreciate it big time.)

Oprah Winfrey and Tyler Perry, better known to us mere mortals as Queen and King of the Universe, join their clout and their production companies with Lionsgate to distribute Push: Based on a Novel by Sapphire. Harpo Films and 34th Street Films will work in partnership with Lionsgate who acquired North American distribution rights from Smokewood Entertainment Group. Push: Based on a Novel by Sapphire was a big winner at this year's Sundance Film Festival, racking up the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award, a feat previously accomplished only twice, and earning star Mo'Nique a Special Jury Prize for acting. The film is directed by Lee Daniels, and joining Mo'Nique in the cast are Mariah Carey, Lenny Kravitz, Paula Patton, Sherri Shepherd, and newcomer Gabourey "Gabby" Sidibe. The story is, of course, based on the 1996 novel by Sapphire.

The synopsis here is from Sundance Institute:

Precious Jones (Gabourey "Gabby" Sidibe) is a high-school girl with nothing working in her favor. She is pregnant with her father's child - for the second time. She can't read or write, and her schoolmates tease her for being fat. Her home life is a horror, ruled by a mother (Mo'Nique) who keeps her imprisoned both emotionally and physically. Precious's instincts tell her one thing: if she's ever going to break from the chains of ignorance, she will have to dig deeply into her own resources

Mariah Carey arrived at the Sundance Film Festival over the weekend.  Interesting how no one is talking about her being pregnant anymore.  We think she was even though she never confirmed it.  Was it planted to not tour?-Dr.FB
