Cheech & Chong Cinemash Tron
Writer and Director: Kashy Khaledi

The high-flying comedy duo get into a heated debate about the price of cannabis and decide to "Tron for it," launching themselves into the virtual world of the science fiction classic.

Tommy Chong says "I don't think you should watch anything like that straight. It'll have lasting, traumatic effects on you."

Cheech adds, "When I first saw it, I was shocked because I thought we were doing soft porn. And then, 'Oh, it's about finances; that's kind of hard-core porn,'."

Is Comic Con A Hype Machine For Hollywood?

I thought this article was very interesting. And I have thought the same Just to much going on and not enough time.

* Focus widened from comics to movies, TV, games, books

* Marketing assaults may greet expected 125,000 attendees

By John Gaudiosi

RALEIGH, North Carolina, July 21 (Reuters) - Tens of thousands of pop culture fans will descend on the Comic-Con International event this week in San Diego that in recent years has changed from a convention of comic book lovers to a Hollywood movie bazaar.

Comic-Con begins its 40th year on Wednesday night with a preview of new comic books, graphic novels, science-fiction and action movies, television shows and videogames.

More than 125,000 people -- many dressed as their favorite comic superheroes, "Star Wars" or "Star Trek" characters and even "Ghostbusters" -- are expected to swarm the convention that runs through July 26. It's a far cry from the 300 comic book fans who first congregated at the U.S. Grant Hotel in 1970.

"Years ago, when Comic-Con was in its infancy, the attendees were 99 percent teenage fans," said comic book great Stan Lee, who will be showcasing a new Activision videogame "Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2" game at this year's convention.

"The Con was all about comic books, their artists, writers and editors. Today, it's still about comic books, but the major emphasis is on movies, TV shows and videogames ... It has become a huge 'entertainment' Con rather than just a comic book Con."

Several Hollywood movie studios will screen new films and host elaborate question-and-answer panels with actors and directors of major upcoming releases including Paramount Pictures' "Iron Man 2," Walt Disney Pictures' "Alice in Wonderland" and 20th Century Fox's "Avatar."

"I make movies for the 14 year-old in me, and I know they're going to dig this stuff," said "Titanic" director James Cameron, who unveils his highly anticipated new 3D sci-fi film, "Avatar" and Ubisoft's "James Cameron's Avatar" 3D videogame.


Starting in the 1990s, Hollywood began to see that their core, target audience -- mostly teenagers and young adults -- either turned out for "The Con" or followed it closely on the Internet. The studios learned they could utilize the event to promote films and generate ticket sales at box offices.

Summit Entertainment, which will debut footage for "The Twilight Saga: New Moon" on Thursday, saw excitement from last year's "Twilight" panel generate early buzz that helped propel that movie to a $382 million global box office haul.

Now, television networks are invading Comic-Con to find fans for shows like ABC's "FlashForward" and "The Middle," starring Patricia Heaton, as well as Fox's comic book-based "Human Target" and its high school singing drama "Glee."

But the downside to success at the Con is that now conventioneers complain that perhaps too much goes on.

"No true fan wants to go to Comic-Con and get assaulted with a marketing blitz about just any old show," said Jim Lee, executive creative director of Sony Online Entertainment's "DC Universe Online" game

Of course, there remain new comic books to tout at the show, too. In addition to stalwarts like DC Comics and Marvel Comics, companies like Radical Publishing are making noise with their new Nick Simmons comic, "Incarnate."

Rod Roddenberry, son of "Star Trek" creator Gene Roddenberry, will debut a new graphic novel, "Days Missing," about a mysterious steward who can change historical events.

Trailer for The Goods- Live Hard, Sell Hard

Here is the New Trailer for the movie The Goods-Live Hard Sell Hard. This one is for my Brother Joe. Here's the Red Band Trailer

Who is Don Ready? Salesman? Lover? Song Stylist? Semi-professional dolphin trainer? Ready is all of the above -- except for a dolphin trainer. When he's asked to help save an ailing local car dealership from bankruptcy, Ready and his ragtag crew descend on the town of Temecula like a pack of coyotes on a basket full of burgers. Selling, drinking, selling and going to strip clubs is their stock and trade. And they do it well. What Don doesn't expect is to fall in love and find his soul (cue heartfelt piano). 'The Goods: Live Hard Sell Hard' stars Emmy award-winning actor Jeremy Piven ('The Kingdom,' 'Entourage') and Ving Rhames ('I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry,' 'Mission: Impossible III'). The film is the first production from Will Ferrell and Adam McKay's Gary Sanchez Productions, directed by Neal Brennan, co-creator of the hugely successful Comedy Central hit,

Movie is due out August 14, 2009

Bruce Lee Hong kong Home Being made into a Museum?

Are they planning on turning Bruce Lee's Hong Kong home into a Museum?

The former home of Bruce Lee is now a love motel, renting rooms by the hour. But officials on Monday launched a design competition to turn it into a Hong Kong museum for the kung fu icon.

"I hope I can personally witness and oversee the completion of the Bruce Lee museum in my lifetime," owner Yu Pang-lin, who is in his 80s, said at a press conference marking the 36th anniversary of Lee's death.

Lee's fans have been calling for an official monument for their hero in his hometown for years.

Lee became a chest-thumping source of Chinese pride by portraying characters that defended the Chinese and the working class from oppressors in films like "Return of the Dragon." He died in Hong Kong in 1973 at age 32 from swelling of the brain.

Yu said he wants the museum to include a memorial hall, a library, a kung fu studio and a film archive.

Lee's daughter, Shannon Lee, and a panel of architects and town planners will judge the design competition, and the winners will be announced in November or December, the Hong Kong government said in a statement.

Yu has offered to donate Lee's home and put up the HK$100,000 ($13,000) in prize money, but it is unclear how the museum itself will be funded.

Meanwhile, the Hong Kong government has started collecting Lee's personal items and commissioned a documentary about the late actor and one about the construction of the museum, Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development Rita Lau said at Monday's press conference.

Officials showed an eight-minute trailer of the biography produced by veteran Hong Kong director Ng See-yuen. It included interviews with "Mission: Impossible II" director John Woo; Lee's frequent collaborator producer, Raymond Chow; Ip Chun, the eldest son of his kung fu teacher, Ip Man; and actress Betty Ting Pei -- in whose home Lee died -- as well as footage of Lee's body in an open casket at his funeral.
