Extra! Extra! It's Back to the Future day!

 They’re re-releasing the first film to theaters—I saw it on the big screen last night, and it was glorious! You can buy the 25th anniversary blu-ray of the trilogy today and you can read some fun anniversary scoop here and here. Eric Stoltz, huh?

WHYYYYYYY?! Mark Wahlberg is allegedly in talks for a remake of The Crow. This shit is getting ridiculous.

Yes! Ending months of speculation and hoping, Peter Jackson announced that Martin Freeman will play Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit.  More perfect casting can’t be imagined. Continue reading

Today is simply rife with news that I thought I’d never care about again and yet cannot seem to keep myself from reporting repeating!

Extra! Extra! A new vampire movie actually sounds interesting to me!

So…Alex Proyas (The Crow, Dark City) is attached to direct a Dracula: Year Zero flick about The Count’s transformation from Vlad the Impaler to Dracula.

Both Frog brothers are in for the straight-to-vid Lost Boys 3. Riveting?

Review Preview:

Near Dark this week, Superman/Doomsday next week, and I’m trying to decide whether or not to watch and review Alex Proyas’ Friday release Knowing. What do you guys think? I mean, it has Nic Cage in it, which means it has a 5% chance of being outrageously magnificent (Adaptation, Raising Arizona) and a 95% chance of stinking like a hatful of assholes (Captain Corelli’s Mandolin, ConAir, and every other movie he’s ever made). But then there’s also Alex Proyas. Help Marla out! Do you guys care about this movie at all?
