You Pick The Hottest Story of the Week

Patrick SwayzeAnother week down, another five fantastical stories to choose from in our ever-growing, Oscar-nominated (not really) weekly feature: You Pick The Hottest Story of the Week! This week’s stories are all over the map – from Swayze to Superman to Spielberg to board games to basketball – there’s truly something for every film fan to be interested in, so let’s get started …

  1. Patrick Swayze Dies – This week The Swayze lost his battle with cancer, and the world mourned an actor who’s been entertaining us for over 20 years in a wide range of films. While he’s most known for movies like Dirty Dancing and Ghost, I’ll always remember him for his great performances in The Outsiders and the epic action flick Point Break. He will be missed.

  2. Superman Gets Squashed – In speaking to the new head of DC Entertainment, MTV learned that there are currently no plans to bring Superman back to the big screen, despite the fact that fans are eager to cheer on a super comeback.

  4. Berg Sinks Battleships – Peter Berg (Hancock) will direct the big-screen version of Battleship, based on the Hasbro board game you probably played, like, once or twice when your friend forgot Monopoly. Universal will release the film on July 1, 2011, which means they want this to be a major summer blockbuster. Our only issue is … do people still care about ship movies if Johnny Depp isn’t involved?

  5.  LeBron James: Movie Star – Basketball superstar LeBron James has nabbed his first acting role in a major movie. He’ll be playing himself in a film about five guys who travel to Las Vegas to attend the LeBron James Adult Fantast Basketball Camp. I envision a film like The Hangover … but with more sweat.
