Christmas Trailers: Four Christmases & Nothing Like The Holidays

The end of year is looming so naturally, Christmas-themed movies! Both these films deal with holiday family reunions with Four Christmases taking the more comedic gag approach and Nothing Like The Holidays appearing to be more of the “heartwarming” type of movie. While both films look nice, I’d say I have a preference for the less commercial Nothing Like The Holidays. Tell me what you think in the comments. 

Four Christmases

Four Christmases is directed by Seth Gordon (The King Of Kong) and written by newcomers Matt R. Allen & Caleb Wilson with Jon Lucas & Scott Moore (Rebound). It stars Vince Vaughn (Fred Claus), Reese Witherspoon (Rendition), Robert Duvall (We Own The Night), Jon Favreau (Iron Man), Sissy Spacek (Hot Rod) and country singer Tim McGraw (The Kingdom) among others. It premiers in the US on Novmber 26th.

Nothing Like The Holidays

Nothing Like The Holidays is directed by Alfredo De Villa (Adrift In Manhattan) and written by Rick Najera (1 episode of Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman), Alison Swan (Mixing Nia) and newcomer Ted Perkins. It stars John Leguizamo (Righteous Kill), Alfred Molina (Silk), Freddy Rodriguez (Grindhouse), Jay Hernandez (Lakeview Terrace) and Luis Guzmán (Cleaner) among others. It premieres in the US on October 12th and was previously titled Humboldt Park.

Eva Mendes is an idiot (a hot one though)

What is going on with Hollywood’s hotties these days? Have they run out of men to date? First Cameron Diaz (What Happens In Vegastells us what it takes to date her, and now it’s her buddy Eva Mendes’ (Cleaner) turn. Basically, she says you need brains because she thinks she’s just quite dumb.

Brains are the most important thing to me, because I feel I lack them. I want them from the man I am with. I love a well-read man – that is such a turn on. I think it’s because I am not as well-read as I’d like to be. I don’t like a guy who has his game on and who knows exactly what to say. Some of the Cuban men in my family are very, very attractive, but they are sometimes a little bit too sleek. I try to coach my brothers and tell them, ‘No, it’s OK not to be too sleek. Be a little goofy. You don’t always have to be in control and say they right thing.’

So there you have it, you now know how to spread both Cameron Diaz’s and Eva Mendes’ legs wide open for you guys, and since they’re pals, you could have yourself a tasty Cuban sandwich right there. Given a choice however, who would you choose? My vote goes to Cameron.

Eva Mendes’ new movie, the chick flick The Women, premiered this Friday in the US, the UK and Romania (!) to rather abysmal reviews.

Eva Mendes to launch bedding line (!), would love to work with Cameron Diaz and appear on Extras

While “designing” clothes and fragrances is pretty common among celebrities these days, sexy actress Eva Mendes (Cleaner) is set to become perhaps the first with a line of bedsheets and pillowcases, something she’s apparently wanted to do for a long time.

“I’m a big interior design fan and architecture buff, that’s one of my passions. If I wasn’t an actress, I’d be an interior designer. I’m not smart enough to be an architect. We’re starting off with bedding and we’re seeing how the public responds to it… It’s very very affordable. I love sleeping… If there was an Olympics for it, I’d take the gold. I’m Cuban; we love to sleep.”

Okaaay…. Named “Vida”, the line will be available in Macy’s stores by the end of the month.

In related news, the actress has revealed she is desperate to star in a movie with Cameron Diaz (What Happens In Vegas), as the two are best friends, along with Lucy Liu (Rise). Sign me up for the male lead and I’m so there! The two did appear together in two episodes of Diaz’s short-lived eco reality show Trippin’.

“I am dying to work with Cameron. She is just a really good person and I would love, love, love to work with her.”

Maybe Diaz can land her a part in Shrek Goes Fourth?

Finally the poor girl can’t get a clue and is still trying to guest star in Ricky Gervais’ hit show Extras, despite being turned down. Her argument? She’s really famous in the US apparently.

“It’s one of my favourite shows ever and they turned me down. I was like, guys, you don’t understand I am quite a big deal in the States, and I don’t go on TV shows, but I really want to go on your show.

“I love Ricky Gervais, I love British humour – it’s my kind of humour, but they won’t have me.”

Of course this isn’t surprising as Eva Mendes’ ego is bigger than Russia (ever heard of that Starbucks story?).

You can next catch Mendes in The Women, which premieres in the US and the UK on September 12th.
