Evil Dead The Musical is not a new thing. It’s been a long running show way-off-Broadway. Like Toronto way-off-Broadway. My first response when I read about adapting this into a movie was that it would be lame. But I guess there’s always a possibility that they could do something sort of novel with it.
We are always impressed when people have the focus to pull off stuff like this. It just takes a LOT of time.
No, not that kind of DP. I'm talking about director of photography, Larry Fong. This dude definitely has one of the tougher jobs around Hollywood at the moment. Lots of people considered Watchmen "unfilmable." I'm just hoping the movie doesn't turn out "unwatchable." But, I still have high hopes, even if it does get pushed back to 2010 by lawsuits.
It’s a big weekend for HBO, Nick Cage, and Asian kids who like basketball.In Theatres. Bangkok Dangerous. We have Nick Cage. Sex trafficking. Thailand. Guns. What more do you need?
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. I’m a sucker for spy flicks. International assassin/hit man movies fall under this category. Bangkok Dangerous opens today, and I will be seeing it.
Maybe I'm not the sentimental type or maybe I just don't share the unending, fiery love for Superman that some people seem to have. Or maybe I just see how absolutely ridiculous it is for a legitimate charity to try and guilt people into donating money that will be put toward saving the house in which Superman was invented. Sorry Ronald McDonald, your house full of sick kids and their families doesn't have enough comic book history to get my money. [Warning: Ranting ahead]
We're not very political here at Screenjunkies.com. The most fired up I've ever been about politics was when the boring-ass State of the Union address ran long and pushed back a brand new episode of 30 Rock.
When I know actors for one specific act or character, I don't like when they go outside of that. It's like when I saw Rodney Dangerfield as a child molesting wife beater in Natural Born Killers and a tiny bit of te magic went out of Caddyshack.
It has made $500 million and has had praise heaped onto it from nerds, film buffs and just about anyone else with eyeballs. But I went out on a mission to find someone who still hadn't seen it. I found that man. He opted to stay anonymous, but gave me the exclusive interview. [Spoilers ahead]
Well, I really have no idea if this is a real movie. But it’s probably better than the actual Cloverfield, one of the first movies to inspire a nation to literally puke on their shoes. Cinema is powerful stuff.
Rumors have abounded concerning the possible involvement of Judd Apatow in the third installment of the Ghostbusters franchise. According to Dan Aykroyd the script is already being written.
Hey, guys! Want to watch a Nike commercial? No, wait, I mean a Walmart commercial….no, wait. It's a Transformers 2 featurette! I know, that's a super-cheesy start to a post, but I think it perfectly matches the tone of this "behind the scenes" clip that was released yesterday. If you like hearing Michael Bay sound like a jackass, then get ready to be thrilled.
Hey, here's a Star Wars parody to brighten up your afternoon. It's better than all three Rush Hours combined. Oh, and if you're planning out your TV-watching schedule tonight, you should put FX's Son's of Anarchy on your short list. I watched the first episode and it's extremely fun.
I hope little Shia's terrible CG performance in the last Indiana Jones movie hasn't soured you too badly on vine swinging, because you're going to have a whole movie full of Tarzan to deal with.
I like Mark Wahlberg because he was such a badass in The Departed. Judging by this trailer, it looks like he's going to be even more of a badass in Max Payne.
Since every hacky movie writer in the world had to go comparing the duo from Pineapple Express to them, Cheech and Chong are back and trying to squeeze some pesos out of the deal by going on myspace. Apparently, part of their plan was to take some of the worst photos of all time. I can just hear the photog now telling them to act as much like gay, Mexican mummies as possible.
It’s always good fun when an actor has a moment of clarity and realizes that sometimes the movie world that they live in is not…um…real. In this case, Samuel L. Jackson, a man known for chaining Christina Ricci to a space heater while playing electric guitar in a power outage is calling out Lakeview Terrace for its lack of full frontal.
I know we usually post these things in the afternoon, but the obscenity-laden trailer for Kevin Smith's Zack and Miri Make a Porno just prematurely ejaculated onto the internet and right onto your eyeballs. In short, it's fuckin' hilarious. I added that F-bomb in there because the trailer is full of them, just like any god red band trailer should be.
It hit the wires today that there has been a little scandal surrounding The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Apparently director David Fincher does not want to pare down his cut, which is clocking in at 17 hours and 32 minutes.
Hey, you know what's not funny? The fact that it's Tuesday, but to you, it feels like a Monday. We all had a three day weekend, so there's a good chance many of us accidentally thought today was Monday, but then we corrected ourselves. We didn't feel the need to tell everyone several times and then ask, "How funny is that?" It's not funny at all.
Holy Shit. It's like Dances with Wolves meets Aliens meets Tremors. And heres a little trivia. The director, J.T. Petty, wrote the screenplay for Batman Begins. It looks like a low budge horror flick, but might be kind of good.
The only thing I know about the Dragonball franchise is that I've never liked it. Neither the video games nor the TV show have ever done anything but annoy me. That said, I was pretty sure I could completely ignore the live-action Dragonball movie that's coming out next year. These boring photos just about seal the deal for me.
My young, formative brain was totally freaked the fuck out by the original Poltergeist. It’s a genuinely creepy movie. But what’s more creepy is the supposed ‘curse’ that has followed the franchise throughout the making of all three films. Four of the actors involved in the films died over the period of six years.
I'm a sucker for these movie mash-up things. Often, they're pretty funny and, since I'm only a little better than a chimp would be at video editing, they're really impressive. Before you go complaining that the effects aren't perfect, take into consideration that this whole thing was done in a basement by one person. One creative, but very lonely person.
If you're a big fan of cheesy movie trailers, then this is probably a sad day for you. Don LaFontaine died of what is said to be complications from pneumothorax. However, if you have a really deep voice and you can say "In a world…" in a really serious way, then this might be the day you've been waiting for.
The Saw series is a controversial one, but I personally think that it's a really fun series that helped bring mainstream America back into its love affair with horrific torture. This poster for the fifth installment should stir up conversation amongst horror fans and give Alice in Chains fans a total boner.
There are plenty of reasons not to like Brett Ratner. Everything from his appearance on Entourage to his huge stockpile of incredibly shitty, but bafflingly profitable movies (X-Men 3, all of the Rush Hours) seems to scream, "I'm what makes people hate Hollywood." Well, Brett told MTV that he wants to make a Guitar Hero movie, and his proposed plot is every bit as horrific as you would think.
Sometimes, when shows get a lof hype, I'm really disappointed by them (Battlestar Galactica, I'm looking in your direction), but for six seasons, The Shield has been consistently kick-ass. This retrospective video is like a walk down memory lane, only instead of just walking straight, it stops to beat the crap out of a bunch of criminals along the way.
I keep expecting something to come along and screw up Max Payne for me. That's just the way it usually works, but there's a new trailer online this morning and it's actualy pretty awesome. There's more gun play and more Mila Kunis, both of which usually make for good watchin'.
FINALLY, a serious movie about smoking weed. I mean it’s great that we have the Seth Rogans and the Harold and Kumars to remind us that ganja is hilarious. But there is a HUGE gap of movies that give the sticky icky the dramatic treatment it deserves. Kudos to these people.
