The remake of the 1990 science fiction movie Total Recall is set to be recreated with the film this time featuring the likes of Colin Farrell and Jessica Biel. Directed under the vision of Len Wiseman (Underworld), the trailer highlights Farrell who plays the main character, Doug Quaid, waking up to the harsh realization that his reality may not be reality at all and he is capable of things he did not know existed. The Schwarzenegger remake promises an action-packed interpretation of the over 20-year-old classic. Read more
Comedy duo "Tenacious D" compromised of Jack Black & Kyle Gass have been rather quiet over the past few years. Since their Box office movie "The Pick Of Destiny" didn't really do as well as they expected it to, they had seemed to disappear.
Well, they're back! At least to an extent. The duo have released a 6 minute film parodying the last few years and what is expected from the new album.
The clip features cameo's from Dave Grohl, Josh Groban & a few others.
The track also premiere's a new song, "To Be The Best". Sounding very similar to old stuff, I think fans have got to ask themselves. Has this really been worth the wait? Despite this the film is rather amusing.

A first trailer is out for Tim Burton's new film. Dark Shadows is a remake of the classic horror soap opera with the same name (which there exists two versions of, one from the 60s and one made during the early 90s). Starring as the lead character Barnabas is as usual Johnny Depp, and of course we'll also see Burton's wife Helena Bonham Carter in a major role. Others to star in the film are Michelle Pfeiffer, Eva Green and Chloe Grace Moretz. The story centers about a very, very old vampire waking up during the 1970s and his human family.
As this is a remake, there's the usual upset fans. Major gripes with this film is that the trailer has a very comedic tone compare to the more serious series, which I really have to agree with. Hopefully the actual film will have a more serious tone. Apparently Johnny Depp is a huge fan of the original series, and he's the one who bought the rights to the film. Personally I didn't really like the trailer, and as I've been disappointed with a lot of the movies made by Burton the last decade I don't have any high expectations for this one. What do you think?
A trailer has been released for the upcoming film based on Jack Kerouac's On The Road. Starring as the three main characters are Sam Riley (previously seen in Corbijn's Control), Garret Hedlund and Kristen Stewart. The film is directed by Water Salles, who previously made the Che Guevara bio-pic The Motorcycle Diaries. A pretty good movie, even though I personally didn't get that attached to it. Apparently he used that movie as his pitch to the studio to make this movie, which isn't that weird considering the similarities between the two.
As always, the making of this movie has made a lot of fans of the book upset. One of the things mostly cringed about is the fact that Twilight star Kristen Stewart is starring as the female lead Marylou. While I'm no Twilight fan, I have faith in Salles and thought Stewart was more than ok in Adventureland, and so I don't really see what the problem is. Of course, when a movie is made about a book like this, there's going to be angry people, considering its status as a bible for the beatnik generation.
Co-starring in the movie is among others Amy Adams, Viggo Mortensen, Steve Buscemi, Kristen Dunst and Terrence Howard and it will premiere at the 65th Cannes Festival in May. Personally I can't wait to see it. What do you think of the trailer?
Perhaps one of the most famous works of 20th Century American Literature is making it's way to the big screen. On The Road, based on the book of the same name, by Jack Kerouac.
The film is loosely based on the cross-country adventures of Kerouac, focusing on characters Sal Paradise (Sam Riley) and Dean Moriarty (Garrett Hedlund).
Also featuring Kristen Stewart, Kirsten Dunst and Viggo Mortensen, it appears this film has the proper cast to do justice to the book. Or at least not disappoint.
On the Road is coming out May 23rd.
What would you do, better yet what would you say if you only had a thousand words left before you died. That’s the problem Eddie Murphy’s character faces in his upcoming new comedy A Thousand Words. Eddie Murphy plays a fast talking Hollywood literary agent, Jack McCall, whose slick mouth gets him cursed by a New Age guru. Now with only a thousand words separating him from life and death the man with all the words must now find the right words before its too late. Directed by Brian Robbins A Thousand Words hits movies this Friday.
“I am the Lorax. I speak for the trees. I speak for the trees for the trees have no tongues” – Dr. Seuss
The fourth Dr. Seuss book to hit the big screen in the past decade the Lorax will be the first one in IMAX 3D. Starting Danny DeVito, Zac Efron, and Taylor Swift the Lorax tells the story of a twelve year old boy named Ted who ends up on a crazy adventure in search of a real tree in hopes of winning the affection of his crush Audrey. Sounds like an easy task however everything in the town of “Thneed-Ville” is completely artificial. Directed by Chris Renaud and Kyle Balda this new family film is sure to be a classic.
The recently released Avengers trailer beat the previous iTunes downloading record set by The Dark Knight Rises. With 13,7 million downloads on the first day (!), it beat the upcoming Batman movie's previous record of 12,5 million. So at the moment the upcoming Marvel movie by Buffy-creator Joss Whedon should be seen as the most anticipated movie coming out this summer! Of course, the record will probably be beaten soon, either by the next The Dark Knight Rises trailer or perhaps by a The Hobbit trailer.
I'm probably more psyched about the next The Dark Knight Rises out of the two, the only thing that really makes The Avengers interesting is that Whedon is behind it. But I can't really see that many superhero-characters and actors crammed into a feature film work that well. And of course, Christopher Nolan usually comes up with pretty good stuff, and the ending of a trilogy is always interesting, though I personally liked Batman Begins more than The Dark Knight.

For those of us who have become captivated with the real life renditions of our favorite comic book and cartoon superheroes on the big screen for the past decade, 2012 has just become the year for us.
It seems like the summer of 2012 will be filled with new spoofs and squeals of our favorite childhood comic book heroes. Among them is the newly rebooted 3D Spider-Man movie The Amazing Spider-Man, which became the byproduct with the cancelation of Spider-Man 4. Based on the comic book, the Amazing Spider-Man, this Spider-Man film will be the fourth created under Columbia Pictures. Starting Andrew Garfield, as Peter Parker, this version of the movie shows our hero looking for answers as to what happened to his parents; copping with the changes of his new found power; battling Dr. Curt Connors, Rhys Ifans, alter ego the Lizard Man.; and of course the regular teenage problems of surviving high school and wining over the girl of his dreams Gwen Stacy, played by Emma Stone.
Very different from the original Spider-Man movie plot and storyline tell me what you think and how it will measure up to its original?
Did you ever think that your family night board game would hit the big screen?
The new action packed sci-fi Universal picture Battleship revamps the old school board game with big name stars, Aliens, and the faith of humanity of course.

Starring Taylor Kitsch, Alexander Skarsgard, Brooklyn Decker, Liam Neeson, and Rihanna Battleship is expected to hit movie theaters May of this year.
What are your thoughts on this new sci-fi flick?
Ok, I'm a little late on this. But, better late than never right?
Back in December of last year R.Kelly in an interview with TMZ said that he had written 32 new chapters of his epic "hip-hopera" "Trapped In The Closet". He is however searching for funding for the project.
As it stands now, it is already 22 chapters long, all of which emerged between 2005 & 2007. The video's that accompany them are absolutely hilarious, so if you can track down the DVD, I highly suggest you do!
