Extra! Extra! Marla's Mexico Bound!

And I am just WAY! TOO! EXCITED! TO BLOG! 

Yes, tomorrow I’m headed south of the border with a group of attractive and promiscuous (kidding!) friends that include: The Good Girl, The Wisecracker, The Rebel, The Engineer and ME. Hopefully it won’t end up like this: 

 

And by that, I mean incredibly boring and stupid. (read the book instead, y’all. It’s fantastic.) 

So I’m going to throw out what little news I can be arsed to gather today as my head is already nose-deep in a book on the beach, hand grasped around a frosty beer and toes wriggling in the sand. Let’s hop to!  Continue reading

Extra! Extra! Fright Night Remake is Sounding Disconcertingly...Decent?!

With a respectable cast of Colin Farrell, Toni Collete and Anton Yelchin, I find myself waving my fist slightly less vigorously at news of the Fright Night remake. This Remake vs. Original is shapin’ up to be a doozy! Thanks to Jerry for the link. (Read my review of the original Fright Night here.)

There’s some seriously rad Tron Legacy concept art at the link!

Comedy Central’s hooking up those of us desperate for some new Futurama scoop with a new Countdown post every weekday until the new premiere on June 24! I actually found myself DISAPPOINTED when I realized that I would be drinking rum punch on a beach in Mexico during the premiere. Sad, Marla. Sad. Continue reading

Extra! Extra! More panic-inducing Dark Tower news!

 Yes, before it was JJ and now it’s Ron, but either way it’s WRONG. However, I do approve of the television series angle

 

Speaking of JJ, he has a secret project coming up called Super 8 which may or may not be a sequel of sorts to Cloverfield

 

I saw this Jonah Hex trailer last night for Nightmare, and oh lord, is it lolz-inducing. Continue reading

Extra! Extra! My Dead Zone review FINALLY goes up tomorrow!

Yep, you heard me right, ladies and gents. DIH is back to being a real blog! With actual reviews! OF MOVIES! A hearty thanks to the dashing Jerry for subbing last week. Now on to the scoop.

twinpeaks

In honor of the 20-year anniversary of my all-time favorite show, NPR has a wonderful essay on the incomparably off-beat Twin Peaks. io9 asks: “Will there ever be another Twin Peaks?”  Uhm, obviously no. Unless David Lynch makes it. Speaking of His Strangeness, check out Lynch’s eloquently random Twitter feed. And Laura Harring teases…a sequel to Mulholland Drive?! How would that even work? Look for my post on the lasting effects of Twin Peaks later this week.

Glee

And in honor of my new favorite show’s return after a painful four-month hiatus, Vulture presents a slideshow of nerdy clique representations on the big and little screen. Freaks and Geeks represent! But dude, where’s Chloe? She should at least be alongside Andrea Zuckerman when it comes to nerdy and obsessive high school editors. Come to think of it, so should Marla. Continue reading

Sorry, friends, I’m swamped! 

 

Slash Film visited the set of Tron Legacy and got some great pics

 

Christopher Nolan gives a wonderful interview here about Batman, Superman and Inception. Continue reading

Extra! Extra! I saw the face-melting Tron Legacy trailer in IMAX 3D!

 And you can too, if you watch Alice in Wonderland! Or you can just watch it on your computer screen and only melt your face a little bit. (read my Alice review here.) 

 

Meredith over at io9 broke down the trailer and analyzed each still for us. Do you guys think if I stole her identity, she’d notice? 

 

And she’s got the brand new Iron Man 2 trailer here. May 7th! May 7th!  Continue reading

Extra! Extra! Only Amy Heckerling has the power to make vampires awesome again!

 Star Krysten Ritter reveals that Amy Heckerling’s next film will be a “Clueless for vampires,” a premise which seems capable of single-handedly reviving the dwindling empire of sparkle moodiness. 

 

The Superman reboot will be written by Batman Begins and Blade screenwriter David Goyer. This is good news! The remake will not star Brandon Routh and Kate Bosworth and it will not be directed by Bryan Singer. This is also good news! 

 

Check out a Q&A with Tron Legacy director Joseph Kosinski here. And surprise surprise, Disney’s already talking trilogyContinue reading
