Schedule Changes: “Piranha 3-D” Delayed, Will Ravage August Audiences

The Weinstein Company isn’t doing so hot lately. They have fumbled several big releases, including “The Road,” and “Nine” is reportedly bringing in very little money. Whatever is going on over there, something caused them to push “Piranha 3-D” from its April 16 release date to Aug. 27, according to Shock Til You Drop.

To find out why, join me after the jump. Continue reading

Interestin’ News: Christopher Nolan Says “Inception” His Largest Scale Film Yet

Christopher Nolan opened up to Hero Complex about his mysterious new film, “Inception,” yesterday and he had some interesting things to say.

“This is the biggest challenge I’ve taken on to this point.  We’re trying to tell a story on a massive scale, a true blockbuster scale—the biggest I’ve ever been involved with. We tried to make a very large-scale film with ‘The Dark Knight’ and with this one we wanted to push that even further.”

For thoughts, full cast, and release date, hit the jump. Continue reading

Whiplash Poster For ‘Iron Man 2’

See that? That is the brand new poster for Whiplash in the upcoming “Iron Man 2”. Looks great to me, and I thought Mickey Rourke was an inspired choice. He will be playing a Russian super villain in the film.

Additionally, rumor has it that a trailer for the second film will be attached to “Avatar” or “Sherlock Holmes”. Considering Robert Downey Jr. is in Iron Man 2 and Holmes, I am leaning towards that film right now.

Gotta’ See Trailers: Jeff Bridges In ‘Crazy Heart’


I expressed my admiration of Jeff Bridges recently and how I look to him as an actor that can elevate my interest level in a film. Well, along comes “Crazy Heart”, a film about a worn-down country music singer who hasn’t caught alot of breaks and it stars none other than Jeff Bridges as the endearing Bad Blake. Filling in the cast around Bridges are Maggie Gyllenhaal, Robert Duvall, and even Colin Ferrell. Scott Cooper will make his directorial debut while he also penned the script.

Fox Searchlight, who also brought us another worn-down, beat up aging man tale in last year’s “The Wrestler”, will distribute the film starting on December 11 to qualify for the Oscars this pic is likely to contend for.

Gotta See Trailers: Five Minute Episode From ‘A Town Called Panic’

key_art_a_town_called_panic

First, let me say that the clip below is nothing new. In fact, it is over six years old. The creators, Stéphane Aubier and Vincent Patar, decided to take their film series “Panique au village” aka “A Town Called Panic” and make it into the film of the same name, “Panique au village”. I caught wind of it from the Fantastic Fest awards given out this year. In fact, every award given was to a non-mainstream film, so it is a great way to hear about some smaller films.

Anyways, onto the movie.  If you can’t tell already, this isn’t an English language TV series nor film. There are dubs, and the below clip is a dub, but because the animation appears to be a mixture of claymation and stopmotion, the dub shouldn’t matter too much. For the trailer, it is subtitled. I have heard that people prefer the original voices with subtitles, but I think it is great either way. So, lalalalalalalalalalala.

The show and film follow the adventures of Horse, Cowboy, and Indian. In the film, Cowboy and Indian forget that it is Horse’s birthday, so they rush to get him a present. Oh NO! Well, I’ll stop there, because really, it is better to watch. After the clip, I have a trailer for the actual film as well. The TV series can be found on atom.com. The film should at least hit video or a limited run of theaters on Dec. 16th in the US. Enjoy.

Big shout out to Cinematical for making me aware of the film. I can’t wait to see it.

Breakin’ News: ‘Thor’ To Begin Filming In January, Mortals Weep

thor

Production Weekly (a pay-to-view service for production schedules on films) posted on twitter that filming on Marvel’s “Thor” is set to begin “mid-January” in LA and will move to New Mexico from “March till late-April”.

If you haven’t kept up with the latest Marvel comic book film, “Thor” will be directed by Kenneth Branagh with Chris Hemsworth (Captain Kirk’s father in J.J. Abrams’ “Star Trek”) playing the Norse god and alter-ego Donald Blake. Along side Hemsworth will be Natalie Portman as Jane Foster (a friend to Blake), Anthony Hopkins as Odin and Tom Hiddleston as the god of chaos Loki.

The official description so far is below.

“The movie’s story sees the god of thunder Thor, a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions re-ignite an ancient war. As punishment, Thor is cast down to Earth and forced to live among humans. Once here, he learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of his world sends dark forces of Asgard to invade Earth.”

This puts the film on track for the planned May 20, 2011 release. Look for production images and footage in the next six months.

Breakin’ News: Foxx Joins ‘Due Date’, More Reunited

According to THR, Jamie Foxx will be appearing in director Todd Phillips’ new film “Due Date”. Phillips (“The Hangover”, “Old School”), will be re-teaming with Hangover star Zack Galifianakis, but that isn’t the only duo reuniting. Last month it was announced that Michelle Monaghan would be joining the cast, which reunites her with “Kiss Kiss Bang Bang” co-star Robert Downey Jr, who plays the lead. Now, with Foxx joining the cast, RDJ will be reuniting with his co-star from “The Soloist” as well.

RDJ is a soon-to-be father who has to hitch a ride with a college slacker (Galifianakis) to make his kid’s birth. Monaghan will be playing RDJ’s wife, while Foxx is his long-time friend who once dated Monaghan and still secretly keeps in contact with her.

Filming will begin this fall with a planned release date on Nov. 5, 2010.

All we need now is for Mike Tyson to join and we would really have some reuniting going on.

Check out this mash-up of posters that Collider cooked up:

Breakin’ News: ‘Watchmen’ Ultimate Cut Release Date, Prices

zz5108d211

See all THAT!? Well, the “Crazy Ultimate Freaky Edition” of Zack Snyder’s “Watchmen” has been revealed. For those that have been following the numerous DVD/Blu-ray installments of “Watchmen” you knew that this ultimate cut was coming, and now you know it will be released on Nov. 3 (update) Nov. 10 for $43.87 (DVD) and $59.99 (Blu-ray). For those unlucky few that didnt know, you were surely confused by the seemingly endless pieces of the Watchmen universe that kept appearing.

This edition, the last and final one if Warner Bros. sticks to their plan, has collected virtually everything that has already come out, and even has an added bonus. You see, the original graphic novel had an interwoven side-story that was left out of the theatrical release and even the director’s cut. So, this new version actually re-implements that side-story into the director’s cut version of the film.

For more information, images, and my thoughts, hit the jump. Continue reading

Interestin’ News: ‘Trick ‘r Treat’ Hits Various Screens

trick_r_treat[1]Last week I posted a piece about the soon-to-hit-DVD film “Trick ‘r Treat” and how it was a shame it would only see a very limited engagement in theaters (it has been in distribution hell since 2007). I also posted that any news I received, I would pass on.

So, here is some great news for those that live in the Los Angeles, California area: you lucky dogs will be able to see the film on October 4th and 5th at the New Beverly Cinema presented by Shock ‘Till You Drop. While that is only a day or two (depending on which day you see it)  before the film hits store shelves, they have an extra surprise: it will be part of a double feature with George A. Romero’s “Creepshow” on both days.

Additionally, CineFamily presents “TrT” on Oct. 2, 8 p.m. at The Silent Movie Theater in LA. Keepin’ the California theme going is the Long Beach Comic Con, running from Oct. 2-4, and will premiere “TrT” on Oct. 3 from 3:30-5:30 p.m.

For those familiar with the awesome Fantastic Fest in Austin, TX, you might know that “TrT” will screen there on Sept. 25 at 9:45 p.m.

Finally, the film will screen overseas at the Sainte Maxime Film Festival in France that runs from Oct. 24 until Nov. 4.

For the uninitiated, after the jump is the trailer for this highly anticipated film that hits DVD, Blu-ray, a few on-demand services and digital download on Oct. 6. Continue reading
