Things Get Intense, Awesome In The ‘Straw Dogs’ Trailer

You've pushed James Marsden's buttons for the last time, Alexander Skarsgard. Straw Dogs was clearly a movie that did not need its story to be retold. Movie buffs lamented this remake as lazy and unoriginal. Perhaps they were right about the motivations behind the decision to remake the film, but, as this trailer demonstrates, the end result looks pretty intense and fun. This remake of Straw Dogs follows the same basic formula as the original, with James Marsden and Kate Bosworth playing the happy couple and Alexander Skarsgard playing the head baddie. Marsden and Bosworth get tormented by Skarsgard until the mild-mannered Marsden stands his ground, much like Dustin Hoffman did in the original. While the big star of this film is certainly the story, any questions as to whether direction and performances can live up to the original should be answered here. It's not the original, but it looks like a damn entertaining film. People should harass James Marsden much more frequently if this is the result.

'Dylan Dog: Dead Of Night' Trailer Shows What Would Happen If Hellboy Were Handsome

Between Hellboy, The Monster Squad, and the Men In Black, I thought our bases were pretty much covered when it comes to protecting us against the things that go bump in the night. How naive of me. Between Hellboy, The Monster Squad, and the Men In Black, I thought our bases were pretty much covered when it comes to protecting us against the things that go bump in the night. How naive of me. I didn't take into account Dylan Dog. In the trailer for Dylan Dog: Dead Of Night, Brandon Routh plays the title character. He's like a more light-hearted Constantine, in charge of investigating and dispatching villianous werewolves, vampires, and assorted ghouls. Routh's Superman Returns co-star Sam Huntington appears by his side once again as Marcus, his zombie cohort. Fans of the original Italian comic may remember Dylan Dog's sidekick being a Groucho Marx impersonator, but those rights couldn't be cleared for the film. Apologies to all Groucho fans who hoping to hear Sam Hunginton imitate him. Maybe you can bring your hacky grandpa to the theater with you instead.


New 'Vacation' Trailer Raises The Dog Pee Sandwich Bar

Rusty Griswold is going to Wally World even if it murders him. If you're seeking to revitalize a comedy franchise like the Vacation films, you've got to up the gross out comedy ante to contend with today's offerings. And that's what has lead us Rusty Griswold and family bathing in raw sewage. The original series switched out its Rusty and Audrey characters in order to keep their ages consistent. This new series may have to switch out the kids for health reasons.


Thomas Jane And Kate Bosworth Adopt A Creepy Kid In 'Before I Wake' Trailer

Don't these kids come with a Not Haunted guarantee? Kate Bosworth and Thomas Jane are the latest movie parents who got tricked into adopting the kid with creepy supernatural powers. It's the oldest orphanage trick in the book. Before I Wake tells the tale of a couple grieving for their lost son. They turn to adoption to fill the void in their lives, only to unfortunately end up with the kid whose dreams manifest themselves physically and sometimes kill people.

Man In Dog Suit Not Embarrassed To Be Seen With Elijah Wood

Pills, cigarettes, sex dolls, and holes dug in the backyard. It's the closest we'll ever get to a Charlie Sheen reality show. Pills, cigarettes, sex dolls, and holes dug in the backyard. No, it's not a Charlie Sheen reality show. It's actually a promo for the comedy that FX saved from the wilds of Australia. Elijah Wood stars in "Wilfred," a show about a guy and a dog except the dog is actually played by a guy in a dog suit but everyone who is not Elijah Wood sees a normal dog instead of a guy in a suit. So, like, when the guy in the dog suit smokes or uses a shovel, do non-Elijah Woods see a dog with a cigarette in its mouth or shovel in its paws? And what about the bipedal walking thing? You gotta hand it to him though, Elijah Wood does make a great John Arbuckle.


Robin Williams Voices A Dog Opposite Simon Pegg In This First 'Absolutely Anything' Clip

Simon Pegg has been on a bit of a sci-fi tear recently. With mixed results. Simon Pegg stars in Absolutely Anything, a sci-fi comedy that also features a talking dog voiced by Robin Williams. Hmmm. Could be interesting. This clip doesn't shed much light on the film's plot, soooooooo... Pegg plays Neil Clarke, a schoolteacher who gets magical powers bestowed upon him by aliens. And those aliens are voiced by the guys from Monty Python. And the dog is voiced, as I mentioned, by Robin Williams. Lots of voices. Beyond that, not a whole lot has been divulged, and while I'm sure the full trailer will give us a little more plot and tone, this is just a clip, so do with it what you will. It doesn't look bad, but nothing with Simon Pegg ever does. (Deadline)


The New 'Jonah Hex' Trailer is a Tired Rehash of the Original

Megan Fox (Left) speaks with Edward James Olmos (Right) between takes.If the latest installment of the Jonah Hex trailer series is any indication, Hollywood is officially out of ideas.The original trailer, which premiered last month, told the story of the upcoming Jonah Hex movie staring Josh Brolin as the titular cowboy bounty hunter who straddles the world of the living and the dead. The trailer also featured Megan Fox and John Malkovich, and was cheered by fans and critics alike for its non-stop action and witty dialogue.Although the new trailer features the entire original cast, the sequel squanders any good will earned by the first installment. It is nothing more than a tired rehash of its predecessor, devoid of any original ideas whatsoever. Brolin, Fox and Malkovich should be ashamed to be associated with this transparent marketing ploy which seems to have the singular purpose of selling movie tickets to eager fanboys.Watch the pathetic new Jonah Hex trailer after the jump.


Norm MacDonald Starring In Something Called 'Vampire Dog'

This is real. Ace is a young bro who had it all until he commited the epic fail of throwing a drumstick into his teacher's dick. Then he inherited his gradfather from Transylvania's dog, Fang. Fang turns out to not only be a talking dog but also a vampire dog. Because they have those. What's most alarming about this movie is Norm MacDonald stars as the voice of Fang for some reason. The reason, of course, being that the f*&^ing Cavs couldn't cover the f&^*ing spread! Available from E1 Entertainment on DVD September 25th.
