Pearce Take – April 10, 2013

Pearce Take – April 10, 2013

I know he’s powerful, but with a headline like “Mark Burnett’s ‘The Bible’ Becomes Top-Selling Miniseries on Blu-Ray and DVD”, even God must be wondering if anyone can stop the Burnett juggernaut. In it’s first week “The Bible” has already become the top-selling TV miniseries of all time. Thanks to wife and co-producer Roma Downey, the project must have been Touched by an Angel. (Sorry.)

If “I, Frankenstein” challenged “I, Robot” to a duel, would Frankenstein’s monster win because he’s in 3D? Australian Aden Young (“Rectify”, “Killer Elite”), and Aaron Eckhart (“Olympus Has Fallen”) lead the cast of the film that’s now moved to 24 January 2014.

Nominations for the BAFTA TV Awards have just been announced, with “The Bridge”, “Game of Thrones”, “Homeland” and “Girls’ all vying for Best International Television Program.

Nora Ephron’s son, Jacob Bernstein, is directing and co-producing an “intimate portrait of his mother” for HBO Documentary Films.

Roger Ebert was farewelled in Chicago. “He was the most American of American film critics in the most American of American cities”.

You want the truth? You can’t handle the truth. Or so says actress Huong Hoang (aka Junie Hoang), who took the stand this week in her court case against IMDb. She is suing the website for publishing her age on her profile page, allegedly causing harm to her career.

Look out Vegas. Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson will be presented with the Comedy Duo of the Year Award at the CinemaCon Big Screen Achievement Awards ceremony on 18 April, to be held at Caesar’s Palace. They’re so money.

Sara Gilbert (“The Talk”, but Darlene forever) is engaged to girlfriend Linda Perry. Insert Five Non-Blondes joke here.

Joss Whedon’s contemporary adaptation of “Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing” will open the Seattle Film Festival on 16 May.

Five “CBGB” movie posters have been revealed online. Did someone say Ashley Greene?

“So what are ya going to Vegas for? You gonna win?”
