The Latest Announcements

The Illusionst - January 9

Serendipitous indeed it is to have two magical magician movies being released, both with immensly talented casts. If I had to choose, I'd go with The ILLUSIONIST first because it's been awhile since we had a quality Ed Norton flick. Plus, Jessica Biel will unavoidably be representing her finest of assets, which seems to get bigger every time you see it. You can set a drink on that thing, geez.


  • Audio commentary with writer/director Neil Burger Jessica Biel on The Illusionist
  • Theatrical Trailer

"When I take this robe off, your bum will be nine times bigger."

Bandidas - January 9

Team JoBlo.com cheerleaders, Salma Hayek and Penelope Cruz, join forces in what can only described as "muy caliente", which is spanish for, "IS NICE". From our JoBlo.com Upcoming Movies section, BANDIDAS is a "comedy-adventure set in 1888 Mexico in which two women – one a European-educated sophisticate, the other a rough-and-tumble peasant — reluctantly join forces to fight a ruthless enforcer… by becoming celebrated bank robbers."

Extras include an audio commentary by Salma Hayek and Penelope Cruz, a "Burning up the Set with Salma and Penelope" featurette and the film's theatrical trailer. How messed up would that be to read the subtitles of their commentary track and the subtitles of the film at the same time? It's difficult to understand both of them seperately some times, let alone together. Below is a promotional poster.

The Covenant - January 2

Good ol' Renny Harlin is back at it. I've heard some really negative things about THE CONVENANT so strike back below if you've seen it. Good? Bad? Worse? Should I rent it or pass? The film will be in seperate Anamorphic Widescreen & Full Screen Presentations with a audio commentary by director du-jour Renny Harlin and a Breaking the Silence: Exposing The Covenant featurette.


Transformers: The Movie: You know it's never enough. Cuz you got the touch.Nov 7

The Sopranos (S6): If you happened to catch the sixth season, all you caught was a storyline that was Johnny Cakes after Johnny Cakes. I love seeing fat, Italian mobsters in the woods with their gay lovers. No, really! Nov 7

Cars: The power of Pixar and CARS didn't grab me like a fat, Italian mobster with a taste for Johnny Cakes did. But maybe that will change. Nov 7

Beverly Hills 90210 (S1): JoBlo is completely stoked about this release. He's a huge David Austin Green fan. He's also a fan of Jordache jeans and Aqua Net hairspray. Nov 7
