David Cronenberg’s scifi/horror/head-explodey movie Scanners is famous even to people who haven’t seen it (like me, yet) for its scene of a guy’s head exploding. Perhaps, if we’re lucky, they’ll be more to the upcoming Scanners TV series being developed by Dimension Films.

Horror-remake-master Alexandre Aja has been signed to executive produce and “possibly direct” the pilot episode. Apparently the original plan was for a big-screen remake, but with genre TV like The Walking Dead making head-exploding amounts of cash for AMC, this was re-jiggered into a small-screen series. I wonder if this show’s success could lead to more Cronenberg TV series – I’d just love to see a show based on Crash– no, not that Crash, the other one. (Deadline)

Full-Length ‘Piranha 3D’ Trailer Ruins Spring Break http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/full-length-piranha-3d-trailer-ruins-spring-break/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/full-length-piranha-3d-trailer-ruins-spring-break/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 There's a new reason (besides interacting with pretty girls) to fear Spring Break this year: dying a fish-related death. That's why I've elected to stay on campus to get a jump on my courseload. I ran that plan by Mother and Mother agrees that's the best use of my time. The once-3D, then not 3D, then 3D again Piranha 3D has a full-length trailer that gives us a better look at the massacre at Lake Victoria. And it also gives us a better look at Ving Rhames ridiculously fighting a school of piranha with an outboard motor. That's the reason 3D was invented. Sh******t, that's the reason eyeballs were invented. Boobs, blood, and people dying unlikely deaths after the jump....

‘Piranha 3D’ Trailer Looks Better Than Expected http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/piranha-3d-trailer-looks-better-than-expected/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/piranha-3d-trailer-looks-better-than-expected/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 All right Screen Junkies, time to put on your 3D glasses and get ready to witness the mayhem of Piranha 3D. In this trailer you'll see the -- what's that? You don't have 3D glasses? Well, you're supposed to be ready at all times. These are the post-Avatar days we're living in afterall.For those of you who did come prepared, please enjoy this blurry look at a sh*tty movie that tries to sell you on the combined star power of Elisabeth Shue and Jerry O'Connell. Last week we heard it has had its release date pushed back maybe indefinitely. Moreover, if it does ever come out, word is it won't be in 3D anymore. But hey, BOOBIES!!!And on a sidenote, how are you going to make a movie about piranha where a guy on a jet ski rolls under the water's surface and doesn't emerge as a skeleton? That's just lazy filmmaking. (Pajiba)Check out the trailer with the little scary fishies after the jump...
