Biz Break: The Internet Shamelessly Objectifies John Legend (Thank You), and Mark Ruffalo Gives a Stirring Speech About Abortion

By Dustin Rowles | Trade News | August 19, 2013 | Comments ()


Here’s a new promo image from The Hobbit: Desolation of the Smaug (via Slashfilm), and God help me, I wish it didn’t remind me of a certain movie poster.



There are also some new photos from The Amazing Spider-Man 2, otherwise known as the movie that everyone will see but that no one really cares about. It has totally dominated the motivated apathy demo.



The teaser trailer for the upcoming season of Eastbound & Down looks like a YouTube preroll commercial, but stick with it, and you probably still won’t be all that rewarded for the payoff.

Girls isn’t really all that more creative with its season three teaser trailer, which is just a bunch of Instagram photos, which is pretty much the DEFINITION of “edgy” as long as “edgy” has quotes around it.

You like John Legend? DO YOU LIKE JOHN LEGEND NAKED? This should make your day, then.

Finally, I really encourage you to check out Mark Ruffalo’s stirring pro-choice message delivered to a rally in Jackson, Mississippi about his mother’s unfortunate back-alley abortion, and how abortion rights also affect men. It begins:

I am a man. I could say this has nothing to do with me. Except I have two daughters and I have a mother who was forced to illegally have an abortion in her state where abortion was illegal when she was a very young woman. It cost $600 cash. It was a traumatizing thing for her. It was shameful and sleazy and demeaning. When I heard the story I was aghast by the lowliness of a society that would make a woman do that. I could not understand its lack of humanity; today is no different.

    The dick burn, inevitable as it was, wins the funny.

  • Strand

    I love how Thorin is looks more and more like Peter Jackson in these posters. Also, I'm really beginning to sour on Spider-Man 2. I feel like I've seen the movie already. I'm sure someone can glue together half a movie just from frames of Marc Webb's Instagram spam.

  • Drake

    I'm pretty sure that if you look up "fine" in the dictionary, John Legend's picture is there. The video was funny too, but I only noticed that on the 7th viewing.

  • NateMan

    The pro-choice feminist in me cheers Mark Ruffalo with deafening exuberance.
    The writer in me grabs a red pen and starts correcting his grammar. The feminist then starts punching the writer in the dick, because screw that guy. It was fantastic and heart-felt and that's all that matters.

  • I wondered if they were gonna go there with the Legend vid, and they did. And it was hilarious.

    Stupid sexy John Legend.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Thank you for pointing out that Hobbit 2 vs Grown Ups 2 poster comparison. The internet is apparently chockful of win today.

  • Grammar Nazi hates the phrase 'full of win.' It makes him want to fire up the grammar ovens.

  • e jerry powell

    "Made of awesome"?

  • Equally atrocious. There will be no place for either in the 1,000 year Grammar Reich.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    If "full of win" is a phrase coined (or popularized) by Charlie Sheen, as I belatedly remember it may be, I do not blame Grammar Nazi in the least.

    Every now and then I attempt to appropriate the vernacular. It doesn't always work out in my best interests.

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    I'm not entirely sure it's Sheen. I mean, I'm too lazy to actually research it and verify, but I think he was more the creator of, like, just saying "winning" when it didn't apply to any situation he was currently in, and things.

    He is made of tiger's blood, though, which I believe is the source of the winning?

  • AngelenoEwok

    Mark Ruffalo may have just jumped into my five freebies. Being a such a great Hulk was a start, but that speech sealed the deal.

  • NateMan

    Absolutely. I mean, I'm still not going to bone him, way too much of a bear for this hetero to waste one of his 5 freebies on, but that was truly great. And yeah, he was a much better Banner and Hulk than I would have predicted. I think I'm going to watch Avengers tonight in his honor.

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    That's why you have a dedicated set of, like, "If I Were Gay," Freebies, or, "If I'm In an Experimental Mood One Day at a Party Inexplicably Populated by Male Celebrities," Freebies or, "I'll Try Any Body Once," Freebies. You have your definite preference Freebies and then your crazy times freebies that your significant other will totally let you have because they know you'd never go through with but also figure that, if you did, they'd probably think it kinda hot and be into it.

    I mean, I assume that's how this works. It seems logical, at least.

  • Mythra Sun

    Like we need any more reason to love Mark Ruffalo.

  • Sherry

    I honestly wasn't on the bandwagon until I read that. Consider me comfortably seated.
