Terminator Salvation opens in two weeks. If you are still unsure if you want to see it then I suggest you watch the 4 minute clip below and let me know what you think. I have even put together a list of responses for your convenience below.
Holy shit! Hooooollly shit!
Did you see that shit? Oh my God!
I didn ‘t like it…and I’m also an idiot queer
The Expendables is going to rock. I don’t care what anyone says. It’s going to rock. If this picture from AICN doesn’t prove it I don’t know what will. You commie.
Keanu Reeves will play Dr Jekyll…possibly Mr. Hyde
THANK YOU HOLLYWOOD! It has been announced that Keanu Reeves will be starring in a film adaptation of “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.” Godammit! Why do they keep casting “Mr. Whoa” in movies that I wanna see? He fucked up most of the Matrix for me (Ergo the architect scene), ruined Constantine completely (Why didn’t they cast Kiefer Sutherland?), and don’t even get me started on The Devil’s Advocate and The Day the Earth Stood Still.
But now I find out he is going to star in one my all-time favorite stories? Fuck me. Really think about it. Keanu Reeves will be playing an eccentric scientific genius who creates a potion using various form of arcane alchemy that transforms him into a violent, uninhibited brute with near super human abilities whenever he drinks it. Dr. Jekyll is only able to remember bits and pieces of the horrors and debaucheries he had committed in the form of the villainous brute that is later named Mr. Hyde. The good doctor finds himself fearing what he has become yet is drawn to the darkness of his evil alter ego. This story could arguably be the basis and inspiration of other great stories ranging from Werewolves to Fight Club.
Good thing they got a talented actor to deal with such a dramatic and complex role huh?
Movie news has been pretty slow the last couple days but there is good news on the horizon. Blood: The Last Vampire anime has been made into a live action movie and a trailer is below!
You know I caught the anime…sorry manga, a couple years back on a Saturday night, at like 3 in the morning on STARZ or some shit like that. I thought it was really good. It was about a school girl who hunts vampires and demons, oh and (ready for the twist?) she’s half vampire! Did I mention it was 3 in the morning when I was watching it? Yeah so in hind-sight maybe it’s not that great, but then again I’m also a sucker for hot sword-carrying japanese school girls hacking up demons.
Call me old-fashioned.
Oh yeah! Thor has been cast.
Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige and director Kenneth Branagh have chosen their THOR — and it’s Chris Hemsworth, who can currently be seen as “George Kirk” in J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek reboot and also just snagged the lead in Red Dawn for United Artists on Thursday.
Hisss Trailer + Exclusive Picture = WTF
So there is a new movie coming out called “Hisss”. Hahaha, there is an extra “S” in hiss, that must mean it’s extra creepy. Anyway this ridiculous looking film was directed by Jennifer Lynch (daughter of David Lynch) and is about a snake goddess that can take human form. Some Bollywood chick is the star, which is fine by me because most Bollywood chicks are hot. Read more at rope of silicon
What can I say? I have standards dammit.
Does Marvel own Australia or something? It seems like everyone they cast for lead roles in their movies are Austalian.
I mean we have Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, Eric Bana was the Hulk, but that was recast with American Ed Norton. But hey Robert Downey Jr is…American. So is Tobey Mcguire and Wesley Snipes. Ben Affleck isn’t even human, I think he’s just a boring android. Damn come to think of it hardly anyone has been Australian.
Hey guess what? ….Yeah funny you know I can’t help that. Smartass.
But seriously guess what? There is a Sherlock Holmes trailer out now. Guess what else? You can watch it below. Tried me of saying guess what now? You say you’re going to punch me the face if I say it again? Ok then I’ll shaddaup.
Inglorious Basterds Trailers
Holy shit here are 3 clips from Quentin Taratino’s new movie Inglorious Basterds, which features Brad Pitt, Nazis and a misspelling of the word “bastards”. I am still staying optimistic about this movie even though it received luke-warm reviews at Cannes and Pitt’s accent is borderline ridiculous. I mean afterall it couldn’t be worse than Kill Bill. Could it?
In retrospect, I’m not crazy about the name but I also don’t really care that much; so you can see my quandary. But would it really be a quandary considering I don’t care? Or is it? Hmmm. Maybe I have a conundrum on my hands. Oh God! I hope it’s not a conundrum! Problems I can deal with, quandaries I can manage, but a conundrum? Fuck me!
Ok, I’m just not going to think about now, because I have to finish this introduction post.
Ok. Deep Breaths. Whew!
Ok, so basically I will be focusing on movie news, trailers and reviews primarily about cool movies. No frikkin’ crap with actors curling up their hands acting like they are retards, or the story of a lonely old women thinking about the past. Fuck that shit. This is about slasher films, comic book movies and just badass movies in general. You know stuff for a mature, sophisticated audience.
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are set to return to the big screen in a live action movie slated for 2011. Variety:
The Mirage Group, which owns the property, is moving forward with a live-action film focusing on the origins of the iconic crime fighters. Project, targeted for release in 2011, would mark the fifth bigscreen outing for the sewer-dwelling heroes Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello and Raphael as well as their master Splinter.
If you like me when you read “live action” you probably thought “great they are going to ass rape TMNT”. But it may not be all that bad.
Legendary Pictures former chief marketing officer Scott Mednick is producing the new pic alongside Galen Walker, who produced the 2007 computer-animated “TMNT” pic, the most recent installment in the franchise. Peter Laird, Gary Richardson, Frederick Fierst, Eric Crown and Napoleon Smith III are exec producing the film, which is based on the characters created by Laird and Kevin Eastman.
News coincides with the Turtles’ 25th anniversary celebration, which kicks off Thursday in New York as the first “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” film unspools at the Tribeca Film Festival.
Since the producer of the 2007 computer animated movie is involved I will reserve further judgement. I thought the 2007 movie captured the characters perfectly and just rocked plain and simple. So let’s just hope a live action verison is in the same vain.
In a related story Ray Park is trying to make a turle costume during lunch hour.
So below is the latest and last Wolverine trailer that will hit the internet. Just scroll below and you will find the last official trailer; bone claws and all.
This trailer leaves me asking just one question. Does Wolverine use hairspray or mouse? I know he blow dries. I betcha he usually mouse. You know to “save the planet”. Damn hippie.
It looks like Predator is being redone, revamped, reimagined, remade, rebooted or whatever the hell they call it. I call ridiculous. Apparently Robert Rodriguez is the mad man behind the remake and I like Rodriguez but this is Predator dammit!
[FANBOY_RANT]Predator had the usual cheeseball Arnie lines (“Stick around”) but was just serious enough not to be campy. And yes I do think that a muscle bound team of covert operatives for hire trekking through a South American jungle with a hot Latino girl in tow while being tracked by a alien hunter wearing a wristband which enables the alien to become invisibile, plus has an atomic bomb built into it to be very serious and not campy at all.[/FANBOY_RANT]
Anyway this is what Rodriguez had to say.
Director Robert Rodriguez has taken on the 20th Century Fox PREDATOR franchise and creating a newly rebooted “PREDATORS.”
We’ve heard the rumblings that this was coming via B-D, but now it’s been confirmed. IESB has also confirmed it will be Rodriguez’ own take on the original concept and he is in fact not only producing the reboot, he’s also directing it.
Rodriguez talked to the audience of press members and revealed his upcoming film slate.
“I’m going to be able to shoot my upcoming Machete here, a sci-fi action film called Nervewrackers, a re-boot of the Predator series called Predators, and a couple of smaller movies called Sin City 2 and The Jetsons.
The Jetsons? Seriously did he just say “The Jetsons?” Not that I give a fuck about The Jetsons being ruined but I don’t think any cares about The Jetsons anyway. Eh whatever, I’m too pissed about Predator, or should I say Predators? Doesn’t anyone have any new ideas? Please stop ‘going back’ an remaking movies that are perfect. Please.
