From beyond the grave! Ouija returns!

Ok, Universal, we get it! You really want to make board games into movies. The problem with adapting the Ouija board for film is that 3 out of 4 other horror movies already use it as a plot device. It's going to be very hard to adapt this product without copying PARANORMAL ACTIVITY , or JUMANJI. So, here's is my idea: Do something completely outside of the box! Do an animated film,...

Will guys go see The Hunger Games?

With record-setting pre-sold tickets, THE HUNGER GAMES is tracking to have a $70 Million+ opening. But will a film with such a strong female fan base attract guys who aren't just going to take their girlfriends on opening weekend? Today's new clip, and a recent 60 second spot have yet to focus on the real action of the film, which would surely attract the male audience....

Wanna get high? Meth Head trailer debuts

Every time I see Lukas Haas in a movie, I can't help but imagine that it is a sequel to MARS ATTACKS . As I watch this trailer for METH HEAD, I'm compelled to believe that after the alien invasion, Haas' character was driven to drugs in order to cope with the millions of lives that died in the attack. Haas has always chosen interesting roles, and while this...

The mullet is back! Tom Hanks' The Lost Symbol has a writer

When Tom Hanks' THE DA VINCI CODE was released in 2006, several Catholic groups came out and protested theaters on the opening weekend. My friends and I grabbed some poster board, and quickly headed to our local multiplex. However, our signs were in protest of a very different film opening that weekend, Lindsey Lohan's JUST MY LUCK . Where other protesters carried signs that said,...

Not just a board game anymore! New international Battleship posters arrive online.

"The battle for earth begins at sea!" Or at least that's what Google Translate would have me believe. Several character-posters for BATTLESHIP arrived online today, and from what I can tell, this is a movie about people who continue to turn their backs away from big, white meteors that are falling from the sky. We also get a good look at the aliens of the film, as well as a tease of...

Kathryn Bigelow shoots bin Laden in India

This is exactly why the terrorists hate us. If it wasn't enough that a film about the death of Osama bin Laden is being done for the entertainment of American audiences. We somehow have the nerve for it to be directed by a woman, and filmed in India. Kathyrn Bigelow's untitled film about Seal Team Six has begun shooting in New Delhi. The film will use the India locations to recreate...

Kermit and Jason Segel move on to different projects

If you thought Kermit was sad when Tiny Tim died in MUPPET'S CHRISTMAS CAROL, wait till he hears this news. THE MUPPETS was the great comeback film that we all hoped it would be. A fair share of that success belongs to actor, and co-writer Jason Segel. Today Vulture is reporting that Disney will move ahead with a sequel to the 2011 film, but that Segel will not be returning as a...

Sony Pictures Classics has picked up, and will distribute the Peter Jackson produced WEST OF MEMPHIS. The documentary is directed by Amy Berg, and produced by Jackson, and his partner Fran Walsh. WEST OF MEMPHIS premiered at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. The film follows the story of the “West Memphis Three,” who were sent to prison after being falsely accused for the...

More Wrath of the Titans TV Spots than you can shake a trident at!

I have to admit,  WRATH OF THE TITANS marketing is so good, that I'm actually going to have to watch its 2010 predecessor even though I had heard mixed things about it. CLASH OF THE TITANS , while not a major box office success in the US, did find its audience, and went on to have a great life on DVD/Blu-Ray. So a sequel was in order. Warner Bros. released 4 new TV...

Would you give up everything for a second chance? Kurt Russell's Touchback trailer

Just when you thought you had seen every football movie, someone decided to add time travel into the mix! No, it won't be via a Delorean, or a blue telephone booth. But it could be a magic football! TOUCHBACK follows Brian Presley as Scott Murphy, an injured player who is given a chance to go back and relive his greatest game. A game that caused him a near-crippling injury, and left...

Mike Tyson wakes up to another Hangover

In an interview with Yahoo Sports Boxing Blog , Mike Tyson confirmed that he would be returning for THE HANGOVER: PART III. While he did not explain details about his return, it's clear that he'll reprise his role as himself from the previous two films in the series. The third film in the series does not have an official start date for production, but should move forward in the next...

Men in Black III will feature real alien...Lady Gaga??

In an inspiring move, no doubt motivated purely by artistic merit, Lady Gaga is rumored to have a part in the forthcoming sequel MEN IN BLACK III . Fans of the series have remained hopeful for the project despite numerous reports over the last year of trouble during the film's production. This stunt-casting news could only fuel more fan-boy outrage. Brazilian website ...
