New Saw 3D Trailer

Saw 3D Trailer Puts You In The Movie
We got the new trailer for Saw 3D courtesy of yahoo. The film stars Tobin Bell, Cary Elwes, Costas Mandylor and Betsy Russell all return with the addition of Sean Patrick Flanery, Gina Holden, Chad Donella, Laurence Anthony, Dean Armstrong and Naomi Snieckus.

An eighth installment was planned, but the decrease in box office performance for Saw VI has led to Saw 3D being the final film in the series, and the plot concept for Saw VIII being incorporated into Saw 3D. Saw V director David Hackl was to direct the film, but two weeks before filming Lionsgate announced that Greutert, who directed the sixth film, would direct. But I would assume that if this film does well at the boxoffice I wouldn't count out another film.

New Let Me In Poster

Beware Of The Cute Snow Angles
Overture Films has let two new posters from the upcoming film "Let Me In." These poster were revealed from the viral site for the film. Watch out for snow angles they are not always as cute and sweet as they seem.



Based on the John Ajvide Lindqvist novel “Let the Right One In” and the Swedish film adaptation of the same name, Let Me In tells a terrifying tale about an alienated 12-year old boy named Owen (Smit-McPhee) who is viciously bullied by his classmates and neglected by his divorcing parents. Achingly lonely, Owen spends his days plotting revenge on his middle school tormentors and his evenings spying on the other inhabitants of his apartment complex. His only friend is his new neighbor Abby (Moretz), an eerily self-possessed young girl who lives next door with her silent father (Jenkins). A frail, troubled child about Owen’s age, Abby emerges from her heavily curtained apartment only at night and always barefoot, seemingly immune to the…

New Megamind Trailer

Really Did The Studio's Need To Spoil It?
DreamWorks Animation has released a new trailer for their upcoming superhero vs. supervillain film Megamind. If you plan on seeing the movie then I think you might want to skip this trailer, it pretty much gives away the whole film. From what was shown at Comic-Con this year this movie looks very entertaining.

Zombieland 2 Update

What's Up With Zombieland 2?
Whats going on world, we got some news on the status of Zombieland 2. The long awaited sequel to Zomibeland was put into action soon after the movie was released.

Jesse Eisenberg that the first draft of the script in finished and has been turned in to Sony Pictures by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Eisenberg has yet to read the script. But  Ruben Fleischer (director of the first film) has had a chance to read the script and this is what he has to say:

Yeah, I read it. I mean, it's an early draft and we have plenty more to do to work on it, but I think it's going to be amazing, I'm really excited about it.

"I got a couple irons in the fire, so we'll see, but I'd be psyched to do it. I have this buddy cop movie that I sold to DreamWorks that's pretty cool that these g…

"The American" Movie Review By Windy City Gal

THE AMERICAN Movie Review Review byWindy City Gal (aka @rosenfie)

"The American", directed by Anton Corbijn and starring George Clooney, is the story of a skilled, yet aged assassin, Jack, who is physically and mentally tired of a lonely life on the run.

In the opening of this thriller, Jack's dedication to his job is made evident to the audience in a gasp-worthy moment.  After being nearly shot in Sweden, Jack heads back to Italy to determine how he was discovered.  Being in a line of trust-no one work, he disregards instructions from the head of his assassin squad and heads off to a little Italian village to finish his last job.  

During his stay in the village, Jack has various personal and professional encounters.  He comes to befriend a priest (as much as an assassin can befriend someone, let alone a priest), fraternizes with a prostitute and deals with his client while outrunning the Swedes who have followed him back to Italy.  All a day in the life for Jack.
Though thi…

January Jones As Emma Frost

January Jones As Emma Frost-First Set Photos
INF Daily spotted Mad Men actress January Jones on the set of X-Men: First Class in Buckinghamshire, England earlier today. January was clad in her sexy head-to-toe “White Queen” costume: a short white coat, knee-high white boots, and a fuzzy white Russian hat. In between takes she added an ankle-length puffy jacket and bright rain boots for a splash of color.




X-Men: First Class, following the classic Marvel mythology, charts the epic beginning of the X-Men saga. Before Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Before they were archenemies, they were closest of friends, working together, with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop the greatest threat the world has ever known. But then “a rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto’s Brotherhood and Professor X’s X-Men.”

Natalie Portman Offered "Gravity"

"Gravity"  Pulls Natalie Portman To A Space Station
Natalie Portman has fielded an offer from Warner Bros. to star in the drama "Gravity." The lead in the epic survival story, co-written by Alfonso and Jonas Cuaron, has been a highly sought role for months, with Angelina Jolie pulling out of it recently.

The $80 million 3D survival story, which Alfonso Cuaron will direct, centers on a woman stranded on a space station after satellite debris slams into it and wipes out the rest of the crew. Robert Downey Jr. already has committed to a supporting role, but much of the picture is devoted to the female character, who must survive a solitary ordeal much in the way Tom Hanks did in "Cast Away" or James Franco does in "127 Hours," another Telluride sneak screening.

In the wake of "Swan" notices, Cuaron finally got the green light from the studio to relay the offer to Portman without requiring a screen test. Portman, who couldn't make it t…

Robert Rodriguez Machete Sequel

Robert Rodriguez Pinky Promises A "Machete" Sequel
At the world premier of his new film Machete at the Venice Film Festival, director Robert Rodriguez has revealed that he has already got plans to make not one, but two sequels to his latest Grindhouse-inspired action flick.

Just as viewers got their first glimpse of Machete, when it played as a trailer in the middle of Grindhouse, Rodriguez ends his latest action extravaganza by telling audiences to watch out for Machete Kills and Machete Kills Again. Although this seems like a joke announcement in the tradition of the exploitation films Machete honours, the Spy Kids director admits that Danny Trejo is likely to reprise the role in the not too distant future.

"Machete don't joke", states Rodriguez. "It felt like it needed something when the music kicked in so I wrote those written trails into the ending just a few days before I finished editing the movie. We made the trailer to Machete not knowing that the…

"The American" Tops The Holiday Weekend Box Office

"The American" Tops The Holiday Weekend Box Office
Exit popcorn-pic season, hello movies for grown-ups: Focus Features' George Clooney starrer "The American" topped the domestic box office with an estimated $16.4 million during the summer-ending Labor Day weekend.

The assassin-themed thriller rang up $19.5 million in its first six days, after unspooling midweek to get a jump on the four-day frame. Two other wide openers bore the same R rating as "American" but seemed more restricted in audience appeal.

Fox's crime actioner "Machete" topped daily rankings with $3.9 million in its first day of release on Friday, but the Robert Rodriguez-shepherded splatterfest quickly ceded its lead to the more broadly appealing Clooney pic and fetched $14 million in second place through Monday. Warners' romantic comedy "Going the Distance" -- starring Drew Barrymore and Justin Long -- proved the weakest of the weekend debutantes, wooing $8…

Andrew Garfield Spider-Man Reboot

Andrew Garfield Gives Very Little Information On The Upcoming Spider-Man Reboot
With the Spider-Man reboot to begin filming in December of this year. Andrew Garfield has been pretty silent so far about his biggest movie role to date. But now with two films to be released soon "Never Let Me Go" and "The Social Network" I am sure every question at these press junkets will have to do with the Spider-Man reboot. THR got their hands on him first and asked a few interesting questions.


Have you been prepping for Spider-Man?

I have been waiting for this phone call for 24 years, for someone to call me up and say, "Hey, we want you to pretend to be a character that you’ve always wanted to be all your life, and we’re going to do it with cool cameras and cool effects and you’re going to feel like you’re swinging through New York City. Do you want to do that?" [laughs] “Let me just consult with my seven-year old self and see what he thinks...” So my seven-year-old self…

Zhang Ziyi Cast As Mulan

Zhang Ziyi Cast As Mulan
Hollywood hitmaker Jan de Bont has signed up to direct Chinese actress Zhang Ziyi in an independently-produced, English-language co-production of the classic tale of Hua Mulan, the legendary young heroine soldier who joins an all-male army.

Mulan” is set to start shooting this fall outside Shanghai, where de Bont, the director of “Speed,” “Twister” and “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider” will attempt to bring romance, action and drama to screenwriter John Blickstead’s re-creation of the Chinese Joan of Arc story that was first described in a 6th century poem.

The character was popularized around the world in the 1998 Walt Disney animated film of the same name. The heroine got her last cinematic run-out last year in "Hua Mulan," which starred Chinese actress Zhao Wei and received mixed reviews.

Zhang is one of China’s biggest actresses, and the new “Mulan” film comes at a time when the country’s movie business is growing by leaps and bounds at home but has sco…

Ridley Scott Talks Alien Prequel

Ridley Scott Talks Alien Prequel
The anticipation for his next project is building to fever pitch: it will be a two-part prequel to Alien, shot in 3D. Scott was never asked to make a sequel to Alien; that honour went to James Cameron, before a further two sequels and two Alien vs Predator spin-offs milked the franchise dry. But with the Lost co-creator Damon Lindoff polishing the first prequel's script, you can sense the competitor in Scott, desperate to put his stamp back on the film series that launched him. "Jim's raised the bar and I've got to jump to it," he says, in a friendly jibe at Cameron. "He's not going to get away with it."

Set 30 years before the 1979 original, so with no room for Sigourney Weaver's Ripley, the prequels will explore the origins of the deadly aliens. "The film will be really tough, really nasty," he notes. "It's the dark side of the moon. We are talking about gods and engineers. Engineers of space…

"The Sandman" Comic On It's Way To The Small Screen

"The Sandman" Comic On It's Way To The Small Screen
“The Sandman,” the Neil Gaiman-penned comic book series considered a seminal work in the medium, is in the early stages of being developed into a TV series.

Warner Bros. TV is in the midst of acquiring television rights from sister company DC Entertainment and is in talks with several writer-producers about adapting the 1990s series. At the top of the list is Eric Kripke, creator of the CW’s horror-tinged “Supernatural.”

Sandman” told the tale of Morpheus, the Lord of the Dreaming, a deity who personifies dreams. The book began in the horror realm but quickly made its mark in fantasy and mythology as Gaiman introduced the Endless, a group of powerful brothers and sisters that includes Destiny, Death, Destruction, Despair, Desire and Delirium (as well as Dream).

The book helped establish DC’s Vertigo imprint and won several awards. It also was one of the few comics that segued from the comics crowd, entering the intelle…

Dwayne Johnson Journey 2: The Mysterious Island

Dwayne Johnson Set To Take A Journey 2: The Mysterious Island
Dwayne Johnson is strapping on a backpack for New Line's "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island," the sequel to "Journey to the Center of the Earth 3D."

Brad Peyton is on board to direct the film, in which Josh Hutcherson will reprise his role as burgeoning explorer Sean Anderson. Beau Flynn and Tripp Vinson of Contrafilm are producing.

Brendan Fraser was the top draw in the 2008 movie but is not returning after hitting an impasse over start dates. That put New Line on track to find a new star, with the studio and Johnson dancing for several weeks before getting into it. Johnson is in negotiations, with a deal expected to close this week.

Johnson will play the boyfriend of Hutcherson's mom, who Hutcherson is forced to bring on a trip to a mythical and monstrous island to find his missing grandfather. The script is loosely based on Jules Verne's "The Mysterious Island."

Three other character…
