Extra! Extra! Marla's shaking things up at Danny Isn't Here!

You heard it here first, folks! Maybe you noticed the fancy new header? (Please save your oohs and ahhs until the end of the post.) Even more exciting, I’ve restructured the categories! So now they make actual, real sense! And you can use them to find things! In addition to using our search function (search “Frank Langella” and you’ll find every post that refers to him. It’s a very useful tool.), you can always find every archived post organized in an easy way under the Site Index or by perusing the categories on the homepage sidebar. This post will be categorized under “News Day Tuesday,” “Movie News” and “TV News,” for instance. Erin’s SATC2 post will be archived under “Contributor: Erin” and “Film Review.” Tomorrow’s Splice post can be found under “Film Review,” “Horror Movie Review” and “Sci-Fi Movie Review.” (But decidedly not under “A+ Review” which will be saved for those films that earn the highest grade. Alas, Splice hella doesn’t.)

 So let’s get to it!  

 

You can find the first two trailers for Edgar Wright’s Scott Pilgrim vs. The World here, as well as a panel-by-panel comparison of the nods to the original comic material. Looks awesome!  

 

More details regarding the roller coastery Fright Night remake. Yes, the cast is good, but it’s set in…Vegas? What happened to quaint little Everytown, USA? And the Peter Vincent character (originally played by the great Roddy McDowall) will be a Criss Angel type? Uhm ew. Read my review of the original Fright Night here.  

Some great images and a behind-the-scenes peek at AMC’s summer series adaptation of the phenomenal comic The Walking Dead at the linkContinue reading

What up, friends? Marla here with all the grue news you can use!

val kilmer

Boring and derivative Chaos Experiment trailer here. Why do directors always insist on putting Val Kilmer in a turtleneck these days? Homeboy is missing the required equipment to rock that style.

the thaw

 I much prefer the look of Kilmer’s upcoming The Thaw, which has a groovy, grody and fast-paced trailer. My interest may also have something to do with my boyfriend Aaron Ashmore’s involvement. Yay Jimmy!

Ashmore’s also supposed to be the male lead in this movie. Oh how I love that he’s becoming a little scream king!

More scoopy goodness for my dears!

Box office-wise, Michael Bay is still managing to crap out billions of dollars without breaking a sweat, The Hangover is hanging in there at third, UP is at a well-deserved fifth, Star Trek will remain in the Top 10 until Judgment Day, and Away We Go is at a surprising and pleasing 10th.

AnAmericanWerewolfInLondon

In fists of fury news, DaybreakersFurst Brothers are eyeing a remaking of An American Werewolf in London, in order to thoroughly bore and depress everyone ever. Oh and you can check out the official Daybreakers trailer here.

Here to deliver the dirt for my darlings!

american psycho

Holy crap! Kick-ass American Psycho director Mary Harron signs on for the film version of Rachel Klein’s twisted vamp novel The Moth Diaries! Ginger Snaps screenwriter Karen Walton’s name has been attached to the project. A female director helming a female screenwriter’s adaptation of a female author’s horror novel? SIGN. MARLA. UP.

Watchmen

Who watched the Watchmen this week? I did! And it was awesome!

watchmen poster by you.

Alan Moore’s revolutionary 1986-87 comic book, illustrated by Dave Gibbons, has frequently been called unfilmable. Hollywood has tried and failed numerous times throughout the years to capture this outstanding and ingenious work, and Moore’s disgust with previous adaptations of his books (V for Vendetta, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen) induced him to refuse any writing credit for this film and vow he’d never see it. The book’s intricate and labyrinthine structure, fully realized back-stories and breathtaking visual transitions between plots certainly do seem impossible to adapt to the silver screen. But goddammit, Zack Snyder tried, didn’t he? This is a man who loves the source material. He loves it the way we love it. And it shows.
