Latest Updates for Austin Powers 3

29th May 2002: Austin Powers In Goldmember Update:
The IMDB revealed a little more about Britney Spears' cameo in the upcoming Austin Powers In Goldmember movie. In it, Britney stars as a Fembot!

Britney attacks secret agent Austin - with her bulging bosom. Austin - played by Myers - wanders onto the set of one of Britney's music video's and discovers she is really a deadly "Femme Bot" robot. In the script, Britney even jokes about real-life rumors she has had a breast enlargement, quipping, "It's true, my breasts have been enhanced." Her nipples then open up to reveal machine guns, which she fires at Myers' character. A movie source told Britain's Daily Star tabloid, "Britney's breasts are the star of the show. The scene is hilarious. She reveals her rude side - and she isn't afraid to make fun of her own boobs." Britney isn't the only star to make cameo appearances in Goldmember - which hits cinema screens next month. Tom Cruise, Danny DeVito, Kevin Spacey, Ozzy Osbourne and Gwyneth Paltrow also purportedly make cameo appearances.



28th May 2002: Austin Powers In Goldmember Update:
Mindy Sterling, who plays Frau Farbissina in the Austin Powers movies says that the third film, Austin Powers In Goldmember, will be the last. This appeared on Film Unlimited,

Austin Powers III will be the spoof sleuth's last outing, one of the actors has told the Chicago Sun-Times. Mindy Sterling who plays Frau Farbissina said "I'm told this is the last Austin film, but I certainly hope there are four, five, six and seven. These movies are so much fun." Sterling also revealed that the film centres around Austin's father, played by Michael Caine, being kidnapped by Dr Evil. "Austin's dad is also a babe magnet. Frau is actually turned on by him. I cannot say how far she goes or if it becomes a love triangle with Dr Evil," she said.


20th May 2002: Austin Powers In Goldmember Update:
Check out the new promo poster for Austin Powers In Goldmember over on the right. it features Austin Powers, Dr Evil, Mini Me, Foxxy Cleopatra and Michael Caine's character Nigel Powers.

The second trailer is also online in Quicktime format over at the official site, which is incidently is in full swing! Go check out the trailer in either Real or the superior Quicktime format.

Finally for today, i've heard a rumour that Beyonce Knowles' character Foxxy Cleopatra 'shags' Mini
Me in the film. This was printed in UK tabloid and apparently came from Knowles's own mouth, and i've also heard this from other sources. The scene to rival Felicity Shagwell and Fat Bastard's sex scene from the second film perhaps?

As reported last week, MGM and New Line have come to an agreement over the use of Goldmember in the third Austin Powers movie. New Line, who will distribute AP3 will release the film as Austin Powers In Goldmember, but all future movie's will have to seek MGM's approval before parodying more Bond titles. Austin Powers In Goldmember will no doubt carry at least one MGM trailer, probably Die Another Day, the 20th Bond movie.


9/4/02
It seems that New Line and MGM have almost agreed a deal on Austin Powers 3 having that controversial subtitle Goldmember. Variety reported today that, although no deal has of yet been placed, the two stufios are discussing the possiblity of New Line using the title in return for one of MGM's movies' trailers, possibly Die Another Day, being attached to Austin Powers 3 or indeed their 'big release' of the year Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers.upon their release. The trade also stated that even if the studio's came to an agreement, the final decision would be with the Broccoli family and Eon Productions, who own the Bond franchise. Not being allowed the title, New Line would have a serious problem on their hands as one of the films main character's is named Goldmeber (played by Mike Myers). The studio has already had to pull its first run of promo posters, pictured at the top of the page.

More trouble regarding the title 'Goldmember' in Austin Powers 3. MGM apparently offered to soffen their stance of the use of the title if New Line moved the release ate for John Q, due to open on February 15th alongside MGM's Hart's War starring Bruce Willis and Colin Farrell. New Line refused and now the third Austin Powers movie may have its release put back, that's if MGM sue them and if MGM win the case, all references to Goldmember will have to be removed, including the character named Goldmember. We'll have to see what happens.


28/1/02
New Line Cinema have withdrawn all of their online promotional material that bears Austin Powers In Goldmember. Hollywood studio MGM and Danjaq, the British company that controls the Bond film license, said that the title was too similar to 'Goldfinger'. They obtained a cease-and-desist order against New Line Cinema that prohibits New Line from calling the film Austin Powers in Goldmember. An MGM spokesperson commented, "MGM/UA and Danjaq have a zero-tolerance policy towards anyone who tries to trade in on the James Bond franchise without authorization," The question now is what will happen to the character of Goldmember in the movie? Mike Myers was to play the character along with Powers himslef, Dr. Evil and Fat Bastard.


25/1/02
It looks like Madonna will be doing a track for Austin Powers In Goldmember. She previousley recorded the song 'Beautiful Stranger' for Austin Powers' last movie outing, The Spy Who Shagged Me'. The Sun reports that the Queen Of Pop has cut the track in London last month.
