Extra! Extra! People still insist on reporting on the Terminator franchise!

Yes, that’s right, ladies and gentlemen. Terminator is back on the table after a furious bidding war for the rights to the franchise, held between Lionsgate, Sony and dubiously worthy company Pacificor, which won the day. Can’t wait for the repoop! 

 

This is all very grain of salty, but Warner Bros. is said to have brought in Christopher Nolan to “godfather” a reboot of the Superman franchise in the same vein of his wildly successful Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. Allegedly (hopefully?) the new inception would have nothing to do with Bryan Singer’s Superman Returns film and would not star Brandon Routh. Nolan would not direct, only sprinkle some of his gold fairy dust to make it awesome.  Continue reading

I really, really, really want to see this movie, okay? Benicio! Sir Anthony! Hugo! WOLFMAN! Thanks to the always-awesome Backline Show  for the link. Check out the vintage-y trailer and rub your hands together in delicious anticipation, á la Marla.

Yeah, well, McG, people in hell want ice water. And speaking of people in hell, DON’T MAKE ME WATCH ANOTHER ONE OF YOUR STUPID MOVIES.

Mrs. Torrance, today Marla isn’t here either. So it’s me, Reverend Jon from the Church of Friend here! The ever lovely Marla has asked me to help out this week and guest-post her News Day Tuesday. Fasten your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bumpy blogpost.

So, when I was called in off of the blogger bench to pinch hit for Marla, the first piece of news that got me all semi-hard was the possibility of a Jeff Bridges-Coen Brothers Reunion. It would be a remake of the only movie my grandfather has not one but Two VHS copies of—True Grit. Bridges would reprise John Wayne’s role.

presskid by you.

Hello, homies! I know I’ve done pretty much nothing but NDTD on the old blog lately, but fear not—after October, my life returns to normalcy and I will throw myself back into this blog with a ferocity that will FREAK YOU OUT, okie doke? In the meantime: SCOOP!

sorority row by you.

You can check out the opening 3 minutes of Sorority Row here. It looks…precisely the way I thought it would look, which is to say, retarded. Anything that bills itself as”Audrina Patridge’s new slasher flick” sure isn’t aiming high, is it? Hey Andy from Step Up 2–what are you doing in this movie??

Hello, my little scoop-hungry fiends! I’ve got all sorts of goodies for you this week, so let’s hop to, shall we?

twilight

Okay, so I’ve never read nor seen Twilight, and I doubt I will. But this screenplay purports to tell the story of What If Twilight Were Short and Also Made Sense? And that movie? I would watch. Although I probably still wouldn’t read the book.

vampire chronicles

Need further evidence of the pervasive magic emanating off Robert Downey Jr? This news has me actually interested in a new movie with the word “vampire” in the title! GASP!

Straight from their blogs to my blogs to you!

In box office news, The Hangover totally surprised the shit out of everyone and bested UP. Drag Me undeservedly fell to 7, after Terminator in 6th and Star Trek in 5th.

Jerry sent me this article which boasts a tremendous amount of spoilery Avatar intel.  HOLY CRAP ZOMG BRAIN-BLOWING POW! And here’s an interview with Avatar star and Marla boyfriend Sam Worthington about the above as well as Clash.
