Review: ‘Survival of the Dead’

Friday, May 28 by

Survival of the Dead R, 90m., 2010 Cast: Kathrine Munroe, Kenneth Welsh, Richard Fitzpatrick, Devon Bostwick and Alan Van Sprang Written and Directed by George A. Romero   Survival of the Dead is so cartoonish, that you wouldn’t be surprised to see the cast of Looney Tunes popping out of nowhere and blasting away some Zombies.   Marking his 6th official journey into the world of the undead, legendary filmmaker George A. Romero, creates a hybrid Z-picture that can be decribed as part Western, part cartoon, and part iconclastic horror movie.MORE OF THE REVIEW AFTER THE JUMP.

Corey Feldman Ties On the Bandana For ‘Lost Boys: The Thirst’ Trailer

Friday, May 28 by

Beat it, Feldman!! As you can tell by the sound of "Cry Little Sister" pumping out of your speakers, here is the trailer for Lost Boys: The Thirst. Corey Feldman returns as Edgar Frog, who reteams with his brother Alan to fight the war on vampire drugs. More importantly, the film co-stars Tanit Phoenix (pictured above left). If you don't know who that is, look her pictures up and cancel your plans for tonight. The only thing preventing this from being a blockbuster is the fact that Corey Feldman is starring in the Vin Diesel role. If a movie features wall-running and the line "If I'm gonna do this. I'm gonna need weapons," it should automatically star Vin Diesel. He should just mysteriously appear a la Candyman. CHECK OUT THE TRAILER AFTER THE JUMP…

Lindsay Lohan’s ‘Inferno’ Porn Posters, Deep Throat, Etc.

Friday, May 28 by

Lindsay Lohan is starring in posters for Inferno, a biopic about Deep Throat porno queen Linda Lovelace. She's also apparently starring in the film, once they get the whole funding, supporting cast, production start date thing worked out. Lohan spent last week stumbling through the crowded streets and bitchin' yacht parties in Cannes to drum up support. Not the best marketing strategy if you ask me. Snotty quips and vomit have never sold a movie. …that Mickey Rourke didn't star in. Producers were touting along the French Riviera that Inferno will begin shooting in the Fall. They figure if they offer up a general time of the year the bigwigs will pony up some dough. "Fall! Well that sounds like a season that movies shoot!" Luckily it's far enough down the line that Lindsay's court-mandated ankle bracelet will no longer be an issue. Either the authorities will remove it or she'll have knawed through it during a house music, Red Bull and vodka withdrawal fit. (Cinematical)

Paramount Seeking Young Unknowns For ‘Super Eight.’ Probably.

Friday, May 28 by

How a gentleman smells his fingers.Paramount Pictures sent out a bizarre casting call that essentially says, "Feed us your children!! RAAWWRRRR" Or something along those lines. Many believe the mysterious casting notice is for JJ Abrams's homage to Spielberg and money, Super 8. The open notice is seeking 13 and 14 year old boys and girls with no previous acting experience and the casting sides feature a few early Spielbergian hallmarks. No director, producer, or film title are listed. From Paramount:Seeking 13-14 year old Boys & Girls for the lead roles in a new Paramount feature film. No previous acting experience is necessary, but must have great energy and a wonderful sense of humor and thoughtfulness. JOSH: Male 13-14.  Josh is cute, but could be on the scrawny side – definitely not the school jock.  Loveable, empathetic, smart and interesting.  Must have a great sense of humor.  Should have a Midwestern feel. COLLIN: Male 13-14.  Slightly, or more than slightly, overweight.  Collin is confident, driven, optimistic and a natural leader.  Must have a great sense of humor. Should have a Midwestern feel. NATALIE: Female 13-14.   A natural beauty – she is stunning, but not the “cheerleader” type.  Strong and confident, but has an underlying sadness. Should have a Midwestern feel.So, what do you think? Super 8 casting call or transparent ploy by Brett Ratner to find some new chill, fun-loving playdates? Either way, it's time to shave and put on my Dorf costume. This could be my big break!!CHECK OUT HOW TO SUBMIT A TAPE AFTER THE JUMP….

James McAvoy Is A ‘First Class’ Professor X

Friday, May 28 by

He may have dropped out of I'm With Cancer, but James McAvoy will be losing his hair regardless. McAvoy has officially been hired to play the young Professor X in Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: First Class prequel.The movie will tell the story of the formation and epic dissolution of the epic bromance between Charles Xavier and Erik "Magneto" Lernsherr, which leads to the ongoing fight between the X-Men and Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. Seems like a solid casting choice but why didn't we have to endure a casting shortlist? Isn't that mandatory on all Marvel characters nowadays? I won't feel complete as a person until I know that Peter Sarsgaard was forced to camera test in Beast make-up. (THR)

‘Killers’ is Too Awesome to be Screened for Critics

Friday, May 28 by

Killers, staring Katherine Heigl and Ashton Kutcher, premieres June 4th, but you won't be seeing many advanced reviews. That's because the studio behind the film thought it was simply too awesome to be screened for critics in advance. In fact, some executives at Lionsgate felt the cinematic tour de force about a secret spy and his stupid girlfriend was so incredible that critics' heads might explode from witnessing it. Also, Twitter has made film critics irrelevant. In today's socially connected marketplace, we all have the ability to share feedback instantly around the world. In keeping with this spirit, Lionsgate and the filmmakers want to give the opportunity to moviegoing audiences and critics alike to see `Killers' simultaneously, and share their thoughts in the medium of their choosing. We felt that this sense of immediacy could be a real asset in the marketing of `Killers.' Yeah, I bet you did, Mr. Lionsgate PR guy. Kind of like when you convinced that fat girl you were banging in college that you'd both be better off if you kept your relationship a secret. (AP/Cinemablend)

Friday, May 28 by

Nothing could go wrong there; just ask Chris Klein.As the casting call clearly states, applicants do not need to be a trained dancer, provided they are a quick learner (i.e. you've learned to keep your damn mouth shut about the casting couch).Click here for your chance to be in Footloose.

Michael Bay to Produce ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ Reboot

Friday, May 28 by

Michael Bay and his team of lovable misfits (Brad Fuller and Andrew Form) have inked a deal with Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon to produce a live-action reboot of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise. The group is scheduled to meet with writers in the next few weeks, although given that this is a Michael Bay production, the hiring of a "writer" is simply a formality to appease the WGA.While casting details have yet to be determined, Twilight heartthrob Taylor Lautner should be a shoe in for the role of Master Splinter thanks to his peak physical condition and his rat-like facial features. However, it remains to be seen if Lautner is willing to let Michael Bay film him washing a car in a string bikini. (Deadline)

Iron Baby

Thursday, May 27 by

Patrick Boivin, the creator of Iron Man vs. Bruce Lee, turned his baby daughter into an Iron Baby. The guy's got a knack for visual effects. Most of the CG in this short looks as impressive as the CG in Iron Man 2. Plus there's the added bonus of giggling. Robert Downey Jr. didn't giggle nearly enough everytime he took his suit off.Keep the giggling going with these links.

Bruce Willis Almost Locked-In for ‘The Tomb’

Thursday, May 27 by

Bruce Willis is in early talks to star in prison escape drama The Tomb, with Antoine Fuqua (Training Day) casing the scene to direct. Willis would play Ray Breslin, the world's foremost authority on structural security. Seems like the kind of character that should be incarcerated in a master prison he designed himself, but Deadline has the solid details:After analyzing every high security prison and learning a vast array of survival skills so he can design escape-proof prisons, his skills are put to the test. He's framed and incarcerated in a master prison he designed himself. He needs to escape and find the person who put him behind bars.Nailed it! It's my hope that Breslin is put to the test, defies all the odds, cheats his own system, dodges burly black men with shivs, and finally arrives at the exit to discover the prison…is an island! It's always the macro details you forget.

Emma Roberts On For ‘Scream 4′ Lead, Ashley Greene Out?

Thursday, May 27 by

Watch out, Emma Roberts! A chubby, masked killer is in that photography studio with you!!Uh-oh. Looks like Scream 4 won't be that much fun to look at afterall. Somehow or another Ashley Greene won't be taking the lead. That role will instead go to Emma Roberts. EW has the penis-deflating news. **Slide whistle**:Young upstart Emma Roberts is set to join the ensemble team of Courteney Cox, David Arquette, and Neve Campbell. And while the script from Kevin Williamson is being kept under wraps, sources tell EW.com that Roberts is expected to play Jill, one of the film’s primary heroines.Details for this project are really murky right now, so it may be possible that Greene is joining up. If so, that information is being guarded right now. All in all, I can be happy with this casting news. Sadly, it's probably the closest we'll ever come to seeing Julia Roberts chased with a knife.

‘Knight & Day’ Starting To Get A Little Clingy With New Trailer

Thursday, May 27 by

It's weird. When I first saw a trailer for Knight & Day, I was intrigued. Maybe even charmed. Then I saw another one and was more intrigued. And now, twenty-seven trailers later, I couldn't care less. Look, Knight & Day, it's not you, it's me. You seem fun and action-packed but I'm just not ready to watch a Tom Cruise movie at this point in my life, y'know? I need some me time. Anyway, here's the newer international trailer for the Tom Cruise. It's got the same jokes and same set pieces as we've seen before with a few extra glimpses of the action that goes down in Europe. Including bull-fighting. Everyone loves bull-fighting, right? Ooooh. Sorry I asked. CHECK OUT THE GORE-GEOUS NEW TRAILER AFTER THE JUMP…
