Extra! Extra! Marla resurfaces after mysterious disappearance!

I’m sorry I’ve been so MIA lately. I’m *almost* ready to return full-force back to ye olde blogge once things settle down. In the meantime, here’s another shorty!

sandman

My all-time favorite comic series, Neil Gaiman’s Sandman, is being adapted for television, and Gaiman is possibly not involved? A WORLD OF NO. Oh yeah, and somehow Eric Kripke (creator of Supernatural) is involved. Read my review of Supernatural here.

Extra! Extra! Marla's face to melt in tragic explosion of awesomeness tonight!

YES! That’s right! I’m seeing Piranha 3D this very evening and I’m CRAZY! EXCITED! Reviews are crazy good, box office numbers are decent and a sequel’s already in the works!

x-men first classJanuary Jones

Loads of casting news for Matthew Vaughn’s X-Men: First Class here, including the news that Mad Men‘s January Jones will play the ultimate ice queen and forever Marla girl crush Emma Frost. Jones certainly has the right look, but I’m not convinced she can actually act. Maybe there’s more than petulant Betty to Jones’s repertoire. I hope so, because I REALLY don’t want this movie to screw up Emma Frost. Read my review of Vaughn’s Kick-Ass here.

Extra! Extra! Moody chick from new Nightmare pulls casting coup of the century!

Yep, despite the terrifying rumor that Scarlett Johansson would be the outrageously inappropriate choice for Lisbeth Salander in the American remake of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, the far more fitting-in-appearance Rooney Mara has nabbed the covetous role. Although I was rather underwhelmed with her performance in the recent update of Nightmare on Elm Street, I’m willing to suspend judgment. For now.

smallville

I’ve just posted LOADS of Smallville S10 scoop to Watchtower including news on some very exciting return characters!

the avengers

Joss Whedon gives a very newsy interview about what to expect from The Avengers! The answer: amazingness, obviously!

Extra! Extra! News and Stuff and Things!

  Welcome to News Day Tuesday! Hot off the presses, from their blogs to my blog to you!
piranha 

Eli Roth talks about the 3D technology for Piranha. We’ll see if it lives up to the eyeball-melting visuals of Step Up 3D! I have no doubt that it will live up to the story, in that it will not have one.  

i spit on your grave

 You can see the trailer for the remake of I Spit On Your Grave here. Yeah, it looks pretty cool, but mostly I’m excited about seeing if it holds up in Remake v. Original. Okay, I’m also excited that it’s pulled a no-rating for a theatrical release.  

zombieland poster 

Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer has a secret genre project in the works! That sounds so exciting! Read my review of Zombieland here.   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! Marla is Officially the Crummiest Blogger on the Internet!

So I pinky swear to get back to some REAL REVIEWS on old DIH next week, but in the meantime, check out the archives and dig the scoop!

hot tub time machine

I haven’t yet seen Hot Tub Time Machine, but obviously it’s already my favorite film of 2010. So the news that director Steve Pink is grabbing the genre reins to bring us Werewolves of Reseda, described as “Teen Wolf meets The Hangover” sounds, well, probably terrible but possibly awesome! 

  

So many new, exciting details are being revealed about the Wizarding World of Harry Potter! Pics. A description of the world’s most mind-blowingly magnificent ride. JK’s involvement. The portraits! Dumbledore’s office! Honeydukes! GEEKGASM ALERT.  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
