‘The Walking Dead’ Recap: Days Gone Bye S1E1

Monday, November 1 by

"The Walking Dead" premiered at long last! Everyone was so excited that the entire country dressed up in costumes and had parties and went trick-or-treating, JUST to celebrate this shows premiere! What did you think of it (post a comment, let's discuss)? The ScreenJunkies review can be found here, and my review can be found here so I don't need to review it again. But what we wanted to do each week was have a post where we can discuss the show and point out some of the cooler moments, so let's do it.

Ron Howard Keeping the Gay In ‘The Dilemma’

Monday, November 1 by

Artist rendering.
You wouldn't know it by the trailer for his most recent movie, but Ron Howard is a protector of comedy. The director won't cave to the pressure that GLAAD is applying to edit the offensive Vince Vaughn line "Electric cars are gay," from both advertising and the final version of The Dilemma. He's quoted as saying:
"'The Dilemma' is a comedy for grown-ups, not kids.  It's true that the moment took on extra significance in light of some events that surrounded the release of the trailer and the studio made the decision to remove it from advertising, which I think was appropriate.  I believe in sensitivity but not censorship. I feel that our film is taking additional heat as an emblem for many movies and TV shows that preceded it that have even more provocative characterizations and language. It is a slight moment in THE DILEMMA meant to demonstrate an aspect of our lead character's personality, and we never expected it to represent our intentions or the point of view of the movie or those of us who made it."
Very well put. When reached for comment, Vince Vaughn added:
"This pressure is gay."
And then Kevin James made out with a sandwich. (LA Times)

For Reals First Look at Spielberg and Jackson’s ‘The Adventures of Tintin’

Monday, November 1 by

Over the weekend we got c*ck-teased with snippets of images from a first look at Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson's The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn: Longest Title Ever. Now Empire has officially unbuttoned its blouse and unleashed the goods. We have three honest-to-goodness official images.
Jamie Bell plays Tintin and Snowy his dog is played by…not Andy Serkis! Haha! Gotchu! You totally thought that since it was a mo-cap animal it HAD to be Andy Serkis. He's not in every mo-cap movie, ya know? But he is in this one, as Captain Haddock. You couldn't keep that guy away from a unitard with diodes on it if you tried.
The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn: Longest Title Ever doesn't come out until next Christmas, so check out the pics after the jump to get a taste.

Interview: Danny Boyle

Monday, November 1 by

Danny Boyle’s latest film is getting a lot of buzz, but not for the heartwarming triumph over adversity. It’s got that, but what people are focusing on is a dude cutting his arm off. 127 Hours is the Aron Ralston story. James Franco plays Ralston, an outdoorsman who gets trapped with his arm pinned under a rock. His escape by self-amputation was documented before, but Boyle’s film makes it visceral.

John Carpenter Will Direct ‘Darkchylde’

Monday, November 1 by

While his movies are being remade left and right (except for Vampires), John Carpenter is only looking forward. The horror great has signed on to direct an adaptation of the comic book Darkchylde. The story follows a girl named Ariel Chylde who often transforms into the monsters of her nightmares.
The film has been in the works for some time and now is gaining traction. WETA created a test video to present how a Darkchylde film should look and feel. It's a pretty cool concept and with Carpenter at the helm, there's room to really push the special effects envelope. Could be awesome. Or it could turn out like Vampires. (/Film)

The Toy Story 3 DVD is packed with special features. After you’re finished rewatching the exceptional third film in the series, take a look at how it all came together. The only downside is after you might be depressed that you don’t work at Pixar.

First Look At ‘Tintin.’ Kinda Sorta.

Sunday, October 31 by

Here's something special for fans of slow torture. Empire has the first look at Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson's joint effort The Adventures Of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn. And they're revealing it really effing slowly. The plan is to release a full image of Peter Jackson and WETA's postwork this week, but in the meantime, snippets of the image are being teased every few hours. 
Currently, ten of twelve close-up images have been revealed but they give you a good idea of what the film's texture and realism. So, if you've ever wanted to see Tintin's Adam's Apple up close in an ornate frame, brother, I've got a treat for you.

Winner of the Best ‘Saw’ Trap of All Time

Saturday, October 30 by

You all voted in the Best Saw Trap of All Time survey, and the winner is…
THE NEEDLE PIT!

Clearly most of you have a crippling fear of hypodermic needles, as the needle pit won with an impressive 25% of the vote. I heard an interview on the radio the other day with Tobin Bell, who plays John Kramer/Jigsaw in the Saw films, and when asked what his favorite trap was, he also said the needle pit. Such a simple trap, yet it's the most disturbing. Makes you think about the human condition, doesn't it, boys and girls? Now let's all go out and donate some blood!

Zach Galifiankis Smokes Joint on ‘Real Time with Bill Maher’

Saturday, October 30 by

Last night, Zach Galifiankis appeared on "Real Time with Bill Maher" and made a very strong point about the legalization of marjiuana by sparking a doobie on live TV. None of the other guests would indulge, nor would Maher, which must have taken a huge amount of retraint for the weed-loving host. All of you prudes out there, if you take nothing else away from this video, remember this: smoking grass does not make you see dragons.

Roland Emmerich Shooting Low Budget Alien Invasion Flick

Friday, October 29 by

He comes in peace.
And here you thought Roland Emmerich couldn't settle for anything less than epic. The director, who in Independence Day and 2012 destroyed the land we love so much, is prepping The Zone, and alien invasion movie he'll make with a $5 million budget. No plot details are known but it will take the "found footage" approach and be improv-based with a cast of relative unknowns, much like Cloverfield and Paranormal Activity.
Shooting begins in mid-November off a script by French writer-director Guillaume Tunzini. Considering the budget for The Zone is what Emmerich usually spends on his craft services strudel supply, it'll be interesting to see what he cranks out. No demolishing famous landmarks this time around. The best he'll get is a modest ranch home with not too much surrounding land to scorch. (THR)

Johnny Depp Offered Lead In ‘Snow White And The Huntsman’

Friday, October 29 by

With Tom Hardy's dance card being full doing awesome movies like The Dark Knight Rises and paycheck movies like This Means War, he won't be able to take the lead role in Snow White And The Huntsman as rumored. Which is okay because an official offer didn't go out to him.
Johnny Depp is being courted for the role of the Huntsman, who goes against orders to kill Snow White and instead trains her to fight and survive. Dude, if I were the Evil Queen, I'd seriously dock his pay for that. He had ONE task! This is all contingent on whether Tim Burton decides to do Dark Shadows or not. It's a well-known fact that Tim Burton owns Johnny Depp. He stores him in a case next to Bela Lugosi's fingernail clippings.
Nobody has been cast as Snow White yet. It's reported that the producers want a fresh face for this. But how cool would it be if the leads went to Natalie Portman and Jean Reno? (The Wrap)
