Cutting Room for May 9

-If you’re one of the people who doesn’t think that science and facts are a matter of opinion, you’re likely a fan of finding a source of energy that won’t turn our planet into Tatooine. Askarben Cinema has found the future of energy! Or at least are showing a documentary called The Future of Energy: Lateral Power to the People on Thursday May 29 in partnership with SolarCon Renewables of Omaha. The film is an upbeat look at some renewable energy issues, including a look at Greensburg, Kansas, a town that gets all its energy from wind. Given certain politicians in Kansas, I’m going to just assume that the air the town harvests is hot and originates from human mouths.

-Rumor has it that Chris Hemsworth, he of Thor and rippling muscles, is being sought after for the Mel Gibson role in a remake of Lethal Weapon. Except, there isn’t really much uniqueness to the Lethal Weapon concept. So, another way of saying this rumor is: “Chris Hemsworth sought to star as a cop opposite a black actor.”

-Star Trek 3 won’t be directed by JJ Abrams like the last two, as he moved a few far, far away galaxies over. Instead, it’s looking more and more like it will be directed by Roberto Orci, who is really bad at everything. He’s half of the writing duo that ruined Transformers and The Amazing Spider-man and happens to be a public 9/11 truther, which makes him gross as well as bad at everything. Actually, there’s another way of saying this story too: Ryan is no longer looking forward to Star Trek 3.

-Good news, guys! Judd Apatow is finally giving us that on-screen pairing we’ve wanted for a while now, as he has cast LeBron James and Method Man in his upcoming movie Trainwreck. I’m sure there’s some kind of joke about the result that this casting will have in conjunction with the film’s name. Oh, got it: This is gonna wreck LeBron’s training! Nailed it.
