  • Nov. 27th is the day!

    I already was anticipating Clooney's new movie, Solaris, coming to theatres on Nov. 27th but this is all the reason more to see it!!!

    quote:
    Clooney's Butt-Baring Battle
    Wed Nov 6, 7:30 PM ET
    By Josh Grossberg

    Steven Soderbergh's willing to go to war to save George Clooney's ***.

    And we're talking literally.

    Sources tell E! Online that the Oscar-winning Traffic director plans to petition the Motion Picture Association of America to overturn the R rating the board slapped on the filmmaker's upcoming sci-fi drama Solaris. The source of contention: Clooney's exposed posterior.

    Soderbergh and distributor 20th Century Fox have already taken scissors to film, snipping certain scenes for the notoriously finnicky MPAA, in order to secure a more audience-friendly (and commercially viable) PG-13.

    "We trimmed down most of the sex scenes," a Solaris insider tells E! Online columnist Ted Casablanca, "and we are not taking out George's butt, which is basically all that remains--and which is actually pretty nice."

    "You can show women's breasts and butts and still get a PG-13; why can't we?"

    Soderbergh himself says the offending shots in two scenes are hardly graphic. "We've seen scenes like this on network television," he tells the Los Angeles Times. "Believe me, there is nothing here that is worse than what has been on NYPD Blue (news - Y! TV) on ABC."

    There are two scenes the MPAA has problems with. One takes place as Clooney's partially naked character slow-dances with his wife, played by actress Natasha McElhone, in a low-lit room ("shot from 70 feet away," says Soderbergh).

    The other is a shot of the couple lying in bed on their stomachs, talking.

    "Again, it's night and very dark," Soderbergh tells the Times.

    He says the MPAA is wildly inconsistent when it comes to rating films, frequently lumping vastly different movies together. For example, he says the critically hailed, coming-of-age dramas Almost Famous and Billy Elliot both wound up with R ratings, just like the graphically violent Fight Club or Total Recall.

    The director, who's currently in New Orleans finishing the mix on the film's soundtrack, plans on making his presentation to the group in the coming days. He hopes to convince the dozen or so members on the appeals board that the scenes won't forever ruin young eyes. To overturn the rating, two-thirds of the board must approve the change.

    Solaris is Soderbergh's ambitious Hollywood remake of Russian filmmaker Andrei Tarkovsky's little-seen 1972 picture (adapted from the Polish novel by Stanislaw Lem), which some critics hailed as the Soviet Union's answer to Stanley Kubrick's 2001.

    The original film focuses on a scientist who travels to an outpost orbiting the planet Solaris to investigate the fate of an earlier crew. When his long-dead wife appears on the space station, he realizes that the planet has the power to perceive human desires and grant them, only the price he pays for such visions is his sanity.

    "It's a love story," explains Soderbergh, who describes his film as a romantically charged ghost tale.

    Solaris is due out November 27.

    Aside from worrying about the MPAA, Soderbergh is also lining up more work that will likely annoy the ratings czars. He has agreed to helm one episode of a three-part anthology film about human love and sexuality titled Eros, that will also feature segments from Italian filmmaker Michelangelo Antonioni (news) and Hong Kong-based auteur Wong Kar-Wai.

            Yes, it's true. Men are nothing but sex objects to Christina, Piper, Katey and myself.

            Well, all but you and Mike, NickG There's always an exception [Wink]

                  If you're drunk enough, the announcement "doors closing" on the DC Metro sounds like "George Clooney."

                    I hope all these women that are swooning over George Cloney, realize that he is gay.

                    On a side note, I dont mean that in a derogatory way.

                          It's not blasphemy, just my humble opinion.
