We could simply cut and paste stories from Variety, but we don’t. We’re too amazing for that. We RETYPE articles from Variety…

KELLY CARLSON IS REALLY HOT

I’m sure there’s a percentage of the population who’s thrilled that the WWE is stretching from “sports entertainment” (i.e., burly sweaty men engaging in homoerotic fake-violence).  At least they selected a delicious Hollywood cupcake to be the eye candy in their first feature film endeavor.  Lissome hottie Kelly Carlson, the resident psycho/coke fiend/porn star of … Continue reading

FINE YOUNG CANNIBAL

As the mysterious and dangerous man of action Dave Davis informed you last week (right here), there’s yet another Hannibal book coming out, and I ain’t talking A-Team or elephants. Thomas Harris is making a naked play for bucks by writing a prequel to all the current Lecter literature, and Dino DeLaurentiis, producer of King … Continue reading

REQUIEM FOR AN ARONOFSKY

Moriarity over at Aint It Cool News is saying that it’s official – Darren Aronofsky is off the Watchmen adaptation. I’m getting pretty good at taking loss in stride. It seems that the director is off the project because his The Fountain will conflict with getting the Alan Moore classic into theaters summer after next. … Continue reading

SEQUEL ALL SAW-ED UP

I hated the living shit out of the movie, but millions of Americans once again ignored my best advice and made the indie horror film Saw a surprise hit this weekend. Making 18 million dollars (and being the number one choice for moviegoers on Halloween), the movie "exceeded all our expectations," Lions Gate president Tom … Continue reading

THE DEAD DAWN AGAIN

Zombies are hot right now, which is kind of gross because you would think that a warmer environment would only speed their decay. Which is sort of a good metaphor for all the zombie movies we’re getting, as I will bet you dollars to donuts that once the current zombie craze ends we’re seeing our … Continue reading

ON THE SPOT SUSPENSE

Intrigued by Curb Your Enthusiasm’s brand of ad-libbing based around a story structure, Defiant Pictures is attempting to make a thriller using that same technique (which has caused some strife in the awards community and the unions – people seem to like arguing about how responsible Larry David is for the yucks on the show). … Continue reading

THE GRUDGE 2: GRUDGE JUDY

Considering it made a massive bundle of money over its opening weekend, it’s not really any surprise that a sequel to the remake of The Grudge is already in the works.  Assuming writer/director Takashi Shimizu plans to work on the proposed sequel, it’ll be the sixth time he’s had the creepy chalk-skinned boy and the … Continue reading

FIRST LOOK: BATMAN BEGINS SUPPORTING CAST

Warner Bros has released some new images of some of the supporting cast from the upcoming Batman Begins (although I’m pretty sure I have seen the Cillian Murphy pic elsewhere, months ago). It’s a look at how the secondary characters in the film are portrayed, although I would have preferred to see what Alfred and … Continue reading

FOCK THIS

I can’t even believe how crummy this teaser poster is. It looks like someone forgot to make a teaser and had two minutes to put something together. I guess I should appreciate the simplicity that these folks are going for, but the poster just ends up looking generic, like some sort of chick flick gone … Continue reading
