Trailer For FIREFLIES IN THE GARDEN Starring Ryan Reynolds & Julia Roberts

Yahoo delivers us the emotional trailer for the film FIREFLIES IN THE GARDEN Starring Ryan Reynolds, Julia Roberts, Carrie-Anne Moss, Ioan Gruffudd, Hayden Panettiere and Willem Dafoe.




Fireflies in the Garden is set in the present day, and revolves around three generations of a family, with flash-backs to their growing up. A major focus is on domineering father Charles (Willem Dafoe) and his strained relationships with son Michael (young: Cayden Boyd; adult: Ryan Reynolds), sister-in-law Jane (young: Hayden Panettiere; adult: Emily Watson) and other family members.


A terrible accident on the way to a family reunion with Charles and wife Lisa (Julia Roberts) at Jane's house, and the ensuing funeral set the scene for Michael to discover/uncover much about the inner lives and affairs of this family and finding a route to reconciliation.


Film is scheduled to be released on October 14, 2011

Synopsis:
To an outsider, the Taylors are the very picture of the successful American family: Charles (Willem Dafoe) is a tenured professor on track to become university president, son Michael (Ryan Reynolds) is a prolific and well-known romance novelist, daughter Ryne (Shannon Lucio) is poised to enter a prestigious law school, and on the day we are introduced to them, matriarch Lisa (Julia Roberts) will graduate from college—decades after leaving to raise her children. But when a serious accident interrupts the celebration, the far more nuanced reality of this Midwestern family’s history and relationships come to light.

Starring: Ryan Reynolds, Julia Roberts, Willem Dafoe, Emily Watson, Carrie-Anne Moss, Ioan Gruffudd and Hayden Panettiere

Flatliners Is the Next Movie To Get Remade

Dam you Hollywood another remake on the way. Ben Ripley, who most recently penned Source Code, has been signed to a development deal with Sony to write a contemporary reimagining of Flatliners, the 1990 Joel Schumacher drama about medical students who dabble too far into near-death experiments that starred then-emerging actors like Kiefer Sutherland, Julia Roberts and William Baldwin, as well as Kevin Bacon.

Maybe Sony thinks a redo can launch a few more young careers in the same manner? Laurence Mark is set to produce, likely with Further Films, for Columbia Pictures. David Blackman is overseeing for Laurence Mark Prods. Ripley penned the April release Source Code for Summit Entertainment; the film was a surprise hit and has made $123.3 million worldwide to date.

FilmDistrict's Drive International Trailer

Here is the International trailer for the film "Drive." At the 2011 Cannes Film Festival, Drive was lauded with praise and even received a standing ovation. Reviews from critics have been positive, with many drawing comparisons to work from previous eras.


Ryan Gosling stars as a Los Angeles wheelman for hire, stunt driving for movie productions by day and steering getaway vehicles for armed heists by night. Though a loner by nature, Driver can't help falling in love with his beautiful neighbor Irene (Carey Mulligan), a vulnerable young mother dragged into a dangerous underworld by the return of her ex-convict husband Standard (Oscar Isaac).


Film is due out on September 16, 2011.

Breakout Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn (THE PUSHER Trilogy, BRONSON, VALHALLA RISING) throttles into the Hollywood fast lane with the precision-crafted action caper DRIVE.

Ryan Gosling stars as a Los Angeles wheelman for hire, stunt driving for movie productions by day and steering getaway vehicles for armed heists by night. Though a loner by nature, Driver can't help falling in love with his beautiful neighbor Irene (Carey Mulligan), a vulnerable young mother dragged into a dangerous underworld by the return of her ex-convict husband Standard (Oscar Isaac).

After a heist intended to pay off Standard's protection money spins unpredictably out of control, Driver finds himself driving defense for the girl he loves, tailgated by a syndicate of deadly serious criminals (Albert Brooks and Ron Perlman). But when he realizes that the gangsters are after more than the bag of cash in his trunk-that they're coming straight for Irene and her son-Driver is forced to shift gears and go on offense.

DRIVE was written by Academy Award® nominee Hossein Amini (THE WINGS OF THE DOVE) and adapted from the eponymous novel by James Sallis. It was produced by Marc Platt, Gigi Pritzker, Michel Litvak, Adam Siegel and John Palermo; executive producers are David Lancaster, Gary Michael Walters, Bill Lischak and Linda McDonough.

Cast includes Academy Award® nominees Ryan Gosling (THE NOTEBOOK, HALF NELSON, BLUE VALENTINE) and Carey Mulligan (AN EDUCATION, WALL STREET 2: MONEY NEVER SLEEPS), three-time Emmy® Award winner Bryan Cranston ("Breaking Bad"), Golden Globe® winner Ron Perlman ("Sons of Anarchy"), Emmy® nominee Christina Hendricks ("Mad Men"), Oscar Isaac (BODY OF LIES, ROBIN HOOD) and Academy Award® nominee Albert Brooks (BROADCAST NEWS, "Weeds").

Indiana Jones And The Adventure of Archaeology Exhibition

To mark the 30th anniversary of “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” a touring exhibition is spotlighting famous props from the Indiana Jones films and putting them side-by-side with real archaeological artifacts. The exhibition, called “Indiana Jones and the Adventure of Archaeology,” features the Ark of the Covenant from “Raiders” and the Holy Grail from “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade,” as well as objects from ancient Peru, Egypt and Iraq, all on display in a museum space inspired by Hangar 51 and ancient temples. Lucasfilm teamed with National Geographic and Montreal’s X3 Productions to produce and curate the exhibit, which started its six-year international tour at the Montreal Science Centre and will head overseas next month. No dates have been scheduled in the U.S. as yet, but Hero Complex readers can get a glimpse of some of the objects in the gallery above (be sure to turn the CAPTIONS ON). Our Noelene Clark chatted with some of the creative forces behind the exhibition: Kyra Bowling, exhibits manager at Lucasfilm; Fredrik Hiebert, an archaeologist, explorer and National Geographic’s archaeology fellow; and Geneviève Angio-Morneau, co-project manager at X3 Productions.

The poster for Indiana Jones and the Adventure of Archaeology: The Exhibition includes a geeky wink; on the poster, below Indy's shadow's left knee, are R2-D2 and C-3PO in the hieroglyphics. (Lucasfilm)

NC: So how did this project come about? Why Indiana Jones?

KB: At Lucasfilm, with the release of the last film, “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull,” I think everyone was just so delighted with the kind of lasting power of the character and the franchise. We’d never done a formal Indiana Jones exhibition before, so the light-bulb moment went off. … Here we are, several years later.

FH: Let me tell you the perspective from National Geographic’s in-house archaeologists, because that’s what I am, and it’s a very special hat to wear, to use an Indiana Jones idiom. I normally deal with what I call the Indiana Joneses who come to National Geographic to do real research, and it’s an amazing group of scholars that we have …. A great number of them have been inspired by the films of Indiana Jones. It’s like a whole generation. I used to teach at the university where in Intro to Archaeology — Archaeology 101 — one of the first questions that I always ask is, “How many of you were inspired by Indiana Jones?” What’s amazing is that this is the 30th anniversary of the first Indiana Jones film, and these students are like 20 years old, and 70% of them raise their hands, saying they were inspired by the films. That is one of the world’s most awesome inspirations that could happen. It’s almost like Indiana Jones is the world’s most famous archaeologist. Even now. He’s not a real person, but he’s had an incredible, incredible impact on the field of professional archaeology, both at the university, and here, now, that I have the great honor to sit at National Geographic …. We are all inner Indiana Joneses. Every archaeologist has a little bit of that adventure in them.

Olivia Wilde Replaces Jennifer Garner In Better Living Through Chemistry

Looks like Jennifer Garner’s loss is Olivia Wilde’s gain, as the Cowboys & Aliens actress is replacing the Arthur co-star in the cast of indie comedy drama Better Living Through Chemistry.

Garner’s got a good excuse, though: she’s just announced that she’s pregnant with her third child, which will put a bump in her schedule.

Now Wilde will feature as the trophy wife who lures a weak-willed, small-town chemist (her Cowboys & Aliens co-star Sam Rockwell) from his loveless marriage with nights of passion and the pleasures of prescription drugs. But things go haywire when they start planning to kill Wilde’s husband.

Michelle Monaghan is also in the cast, as Rockwell’s wife, which makes us question quite why he’d be cheating in the first place. Oh, and Judi Dench is the movie’s narrator.

Geoff Moore and David Posamentier, who wrote the script and saw it land squarely on the 2010 Black List, are stepping up to direct. Given the changes in casting (Rockwell is taking over for Jeremy Renner), the shoot has been pushed back slightly, though the idea is to start work this autumn in Maryland.

Fox Renews Breaking In For A Second Season

It's official! Fox announced Thursday that Breaking In will be getting 13 episode second season, set to premiere in 2012.

And now, the crew of Breaking In is about to pull off the best heist ever: coming back from cancellation.

Christian Slater comedy caper will be getting a 13-episode order for this season. That's right, Breaking In might possibly beat the evil cancellation demons for a second time...


Back in the spring, Fox announced that it wouldn't be renewing the half-hour comedy which stars Slater, along with Bret Harrison, Michael Rosenbaum and new House gal Odette Annable. But a sliver of hope was given to fans when Fox decided to keep the casts' options in case they decided to give the show another chance. And now it seems that chance is here, because negations are reportedly currently underway to bring Breaking In back to the Fox schedule.

Fox had no comment, but we'll be keeping fingers and toes crossed that this deal goes through because we were so bummed to see Breaking In go.

As for new House castmember Annable, she'll be pulling double duty, as her contract allows her to do both shows. How will Breaking In coming back affect her House schedule? That remains to be seen

Michelle Williams As Marilyn Monroe In "My Week with Marilyn"

Here is a stunning photo of Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe from her upcoming film My Week with Marilyn.

The film also stars Kenneth Branagh, Eddie Redmayne, Dominic Cooper and Emma Watson. Based on two books by Colin Clark, it depicts the making of the 1957 film The Prince and the Showgirl, which starred Marilyn Monroe and Laurence Olivier. The film focuses on the week in which Monroe spent time being escorted around Britain by Clark, after her husband, Arthur Miller, left the country.

My Week with Marilyn Synopsis:

In the early summer of 1956, 23 year-old Colin Clark, just down from Oxford and determined to make his way in the film business, worked as a lowly assistant on the set of The Prince and the Showgirl, the film that famously united Sir Laurence Olivier and Marilyn Monroe, who was also on honeymoon with her new husband, the playwright Arthur Miller.

Nearly 40 years on, his diary account “The Prince, the Showgirl and Me” was published, but one week was missing and this was published some years later as “My Week with Marilyn” – this is the story of that week. When Arthur Miller leaves England, the coast is clear for Colin to introduce Marilyn to some of the pleasures of British life; an idyllic week in which he escorted a Monroe desperate to get away from her retinue of Hollywood hangers-on and the pressures of work.

My Week with Marilyn will be released to theaters on November 4, 2011

Phineas And Ferb Feature Film On It's Way

Dan Povenmire and Jeff “Swampy” Marsh, co-creators of Disney Channel’s flagship animated series Phineas and Ferb, have signed separate exclusive, multi-year, multimillion-dollar deals with Disney Television Animation. Under the pacts, the two will continue on the Emmy-winning series they created and executive produce for another season. Also as part of the deals, Povenmire and Marsh are now officially attached to the Phineas and Ferb feature being developed at Disney. The two are already working on the script. Additionally, the deals include a new pilot, likely a Phineas and Ferb spinoff, and other future development for Povenmire and Marsh, who also have a piece of the franchise’s merchandising profits.

The pacts come on the heels of the Phineas and Ferb: Across the 2nd Dimension TV movie drawing 7.6 million viewers in its debut this month to become the most-watched cable movie of the year and the third-highest-rated movie in Disney Channel history. After putting an emphasis on live-action programming for a while, Disney has renewed its focus on TV animation, which will result in the doubling of the number of animated episodes on Disney Channel, Disney XD and Disney Junior in 2012 versus 2010. A main part of Disney TV Animation’s strategy has been concentrating on “creator-driven” series. Its first success in that direction was Povenmire and Marsh’s mega hit Phineas and Ferb, which was followed by Noah Z. Jones’ Fish Hooks and others. Povenmire is with WME, Marsh with Natural Talent.

Our Idiot Brother Red-Band Trailer FU ABC

Courtesy of moviefone we have the red-band trailer for Our Idiot Brother. Up until now, the trailers and posters for 'Our Idiot Brother' have made the upcoming comedy seem like a PG-13 affair at best. But now that we've got our hands on the red-band trailer for the movie, there is no doubt in our minds that this one earned its R rating with ease.

The film stars Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel, and Emily Mortimer.

This particular clip even has has a little story behind it. Apparently, ABC refused to air the original 'Our Idiot Brother' trailer, which didn't sit well with the Weinstein Company. Therefore, they decided to cut a much dirtier version for your viewing pleasure.

"We'd like to dedicate our new red-band trailer for 'Our Idiot Brother' to the conscientious censors at ABC and their concerned brethren everywhere. Enjoy!!"

OUR IDIOT BROTHER opens in theaters everywhere tomorrow.

First Look At Superman's Full Costume & 1st Image Of Faora & Zod

Remember that first, official photo of Henry Cavill as Superman in the upcoming movie Man of Steel? While it wasn't clear from that shot whether or not Cavill was wearing the traditional red underpants, some new photos seem to have settled the matter.

A series of pictures taken on the set and posted at the Man of Steel Facebook page appear to show quite definitively that Cavill is not wearing the red trunks that have been part of Superman's costume since the very beginning.


So now we can guess why that initial photo deliberately kept Kal-El's mid-section in the shadows—director Zack Snyder and the film's producers (which include Christopher Nolan) wanted to keep the full costume a mystery and not necessarily set off alarm bells with Superman purists.

Of course, it's not just the new movie that's messing with the Man of Steel's iconic outfit: DC Comics has also revealed that Superman's red underwear is going to be a thing of the past when the publisher reboots its entire line of titles next month.


By the way, if you can get over the shock of the new Superman outfit in those set pics, you might also notice that they give us our first (sort of) view of female Kryptonian villain Faora (Antje Traue), who looks for our money a lot like Ursa from the first two Christopher Reeve Superman flicks. And is that Michael Shannon as Zod in the mo-cap suit??

X-Men: First Class Magneto In Drag

Sometimes being an arch-nemesis is a real drag. The clip is from a Japaneses commercial promoting the deleted scenes for the upcoming DVD release of X-Men: First Class

Exhibit A: Consider this deleted scene from X-Men: First Class, included in the DVD out Sept. 9. It all starts innocently enough: Eric Lehnsherr (Michael Fassbender) and Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) are on a recruiting mission for their new, government-sanctioned mutant strike force.

Angel (Zoe Kravitz) is working as a stripper, and they want to get her to reveal how her dragonfly tattoos actually emerge from her body to form real wings. Magneto levitated a champagne bucket to show her his power, but Angel never quite got a demonstration of Professor X’s mindbending abilities. Now we see why that was left on the cutting room floor.

If a deal comes together, Skarsgard would play the leader of the group who seeks revenge against unethical corporations. Michael Costigan of Scott Free Prods. is producing the movie, which is eyeing a tentative Nashville shoot in October and November.

Fox Searchlight, which released Marling’s Another Earth and is opening Sound of My Voice, will likely distribute the film.

Skarsgard, who stars on Blood as the vampire Eric Northman, has slowly been building a solid feature career. He stars as the villain in Rod Lurie's Straw Dogs, which opens Sept. 16, as well as Melancholia, the latest pic from Lars von Trier. Also in the can is Universal’s big-budget sci-fi action pic Battleship, set to unspool next summer.

The actor is currently shooting the indie drama What Maisie Knew with Julianne Moore.

In the beginning they were a group of nine. Nine aliens who left their home planet of Lorien when it fell under attack by the evil Mogadorians, who scattered on Earth and went into hiding, who look like ordinary teenagers, but who have extraordinary skills. The Mogadorians killed Number One, Number Two, and Number Three. They tried to kill Number Four, John Smith ...and failed.

Following a massive battle at the end of I AM NUMBER FOUR that proved that the Mogadorians have found him at last, John joined forces with Number Six. Now the fate of Lorien—and Earth— rests in the hands of these two teens.

Already John and Six have inspired a fellow Lorien—Marina, Number Seven—who has been hiding in Spain. She’s been following the news of what’s happening in the US, and she’s certain it’s the sign she’s been waiting for.


CHAPTER ONE
Katarina says there is more than one way to hide.
Before we came down here to Mexico, we lived in a suburb of
Denver. My name then was Sheila, a name I hate even more than
my current name, Kelly. We lived there for two years, and I wore
barrettes in my hair and pink rubber bracelets on my wrists, like
all the other girls at my school. I had sleepovers with some of
them, the girls I called “my friends.” I went to school during the
school year, and in the summer I went to a swimmers’ camp at
the YMCA. I liked my friends and the life we had there okay, but
I had already been moved around by my Cêpan Katarina enough
to know that it wasn’t going to be permanent. I knew it wasn’t my
real life.

CHAPTER ONE
Katarina says there is more than one way to hide.
Before we came down here to Mexico, we lived in a suburb of
Denver. My name then was Sheila, a name I hate even more than
my current name, Kelly. We lived there for two years, and I wore
barrettes in my hair and pink rubber bracelets on my wrists, like
all the other girls at my school. I had sleepovers with some of
them, the girls I called “my friends.” I went to school during the
school year, and in the summer I went to a swimmers’ camp at
the YMCA. I liked my friends and the life we had there okay, but
I had already been moved around by my Cêpan Katarina enough
to know that it wasn’t going to be permanent. I knew it wasn’t my
real life.
My real life took place in our basement, where Katarina and
I did combat training. By day, it was an ordinary suburban rec
room, with a big comfy couch and a TV in one corner and a Ping-
Pong table in the other. By night, it was a well-stocked combat
training gym, with hanging bags, floor mats, weapons, and even a
makeshift pommel horse.
In public, Katarina played the part of my mother, claiming that
her “husband” and my “father” had been killed in a car accident
when I was an infant. Our names, our lives, our stories were all
fictions, identities for me and Katarina to hide behind. But those
identities allowed us to live out in the open. Acting normal.
Blending in: that was one way of hiding.
But we slipped up. To this day I can remember our conversation
as we drove away from Denver, headed to Mexico for no other
reason than we’d never been there, both of us trying to figure out
how exactly we’d blown our cover. Something I said to my friend
Eliza had contradicted something Katarina had said to Eliza’s
mother. Before Denver we’d lived in Nova Scotia for a cold, cold
winter, but as I remembered it, our story, the lie we’d agreed to tell,
was that we’d lived in Boston before Denver. Katarina remembered
differently, and claimed Tallahassee as our previous home.
Then Eliza told her mother and that’s when people started to get
suspicious.
It was hardly a calamitous exposure. We had no immediate
reason to believe our slip would raise the kind of suspicion that
could attract the Mogadorians to our location. But our life had gone
sour there, and Katarina figured we’d been there long enough as it
was.
So we moved yet again.
The sun is bright and hard in Puerto Blanco, the air impossibly dry.
Katarina and I make no attempt to blend in with the other residents,
Mexican farmers and their children. Our only regular contact with
the locals is our once-a-week trip into town to buy essentials at the
small store. We are the only whites for many miles, and though we
both speak good Spanish, there’s no confusing us for natives of the
place. To our neighbors, we are the gringas, strange white recluses.
“Sometimes you can hide just as effectively by sticking out,”
Katarina says.
She appears to be right. We have been here almost a year and
we haven’t been bothered once. We lead a lonely but ordered life
in a sprawling, single-level shack tucked between two big patches
of farmland. We wake up with the sun, and before eating or
showering Katarina has me run drills in the backyard: running up
and down a small hill, doing calisthenics, and practicing tai chi.
We take advantage of the two relatively cool hours of morning.
Morning drills are followed by a light breakfast, then three
hours of studies: languages, world history, and whatever other
subjects Katarina can dig up from the internet. She says her
teaching method and subject matter are “eclectic.” I don’t know
what that word means, but I’m just grateful for the variety.
Katarina is a quiet, thoughtful woman, and though she’s the closest
thing I have to a mother, she’s very different from me.
Studies are probably the highlight of her day. I prefer drills.
After studies it’s back out into the blazing sun, where the heat
makes me dizzy enough that I can almost hallucinate my imagined
enemies. I do battle with straw men: shooting them with arrows,
stabbing them with knives, or simply pummeling them with my
bare fists. But half-blind from the sun, I see them as Mogadorians,
and I relish the chance to tear them to pieces. Katarina says even
though I am only thirteen years old, I’m so agile and so strong I
could easily take down even a well-trained adult.
One of the nice things about living in Puerto Blanco is that I
don’t have to hide my skills. Back in Denver, whether swimming
at the Y or just playing on the street, I always had to hold back, to
keep myself from revealing the superior speed and strength that
Katarina’s training regimen has resulted in. We keep to ourselves
out here, away from the eyes of others, so I don’t have to hide.
Today is Sunday, so our afternoon drills are short, only an hour.
I am shadowboxing with Katarina in the backyard, and I can feel
her eagerness to quit: her moves are halfhearted, she’s squinting
against the sun, and she looks tired. I love training and could go all
day, but out of deference to her I suggest we call it a day.
“Oh, I suppose we could finish early,” she says. I grin privately,
allowing her to think I’m the tired one. We go inside and Katarina
pours us two tall glasses of agua fresca, our customary Sunday
treat. The fan is blowing full force in our humble shack’s living
room. Katarina boots up her various computers while I kick off
my dirty, sweat-filled fighting boots and collapse to the floor. I
stretch my arms to keep them from knotting up, then swing them
to the bookshelf in the corner and pull out a tall stack of the board
games we keep there. Risk, Stratego, Othello. Katarina has tried
to interest me in games like Life and Monopoly, saying it wouldn’t
hurt to be “well-rounded.” But those games never held my interest.
Katarina got the hint, and now we only play combat and strategy
games.
Risk is my favorite, and since we finished early today I think
Katarina will agree to playing it even though it’s a longer game
than the others.
“Risk?”
Katarina is at her desk chair, pivoting from one screen to the
next.
“Risk of what?” she asks absently.
I laugh, then shake the box near her head. She doesn’t look up
from the screens, but the sound of all those pieces rattling around
inside the box is enough for her to get it.
“Oh,” she says. “Sure.”
I set up the board. Without asking, I divvy up the armies into
hers and mine, and begin placing them all across the game’s map.
We’ve played this game so much I don’t need to ask her which
countries she’d like to claim, or which territories she’d like to
fortify. She always chooses the U.S. and Asia. I happily place her
pieces on those territories, knowing that from my more easily
defended territories I will quickly grow armies strong enough to
crush hers.
I’m so absorbed in setting up the game I don’t even notice
Katarina’s silence, her absorption. It is only when I crack my neck
loudly and she neglects to scold me for it—“Please don’t,” she
usually says, squeamish about the sound it makes—that I look up
and see her, staring openmouthed at one of her monitors.
“Kat?” I ask.
She’s silent.
I get up from the floor, stepping across the game board to join
her at her desk. It is only then that I see what has so completely
captured her attention. A breaking news item about some kind of
explosion on a bus in England.
I groan.
Katarina is always checking the internet and the news
for mysterious deaths. Deaths that could be the work of the
Mogadorians. Deaths that could mean the second member of the
Garde has been defeated. She’s been doing it since we came to
Earth, and I’ve grown frustrated with the doom-and-gloom of it.
Besides, it’s not like it did us any good the first time.
I was nine years old, living in Nova Scotia with Katarina. Our
training room there was in the attic. Katarina had retired from
training for the day, but I still had energy to burn, and was doing
moores and spindles on the pommel horse alone when I suddenly
felt a blast of scorching pain on my ankle. I lost my balance and
came crashing down to the mat, clutching my ankle and screaming
in pain.
My first scar. It meant that the Mogadorians had killed Number
One, the first of the Garde. And for all of Katarina’s web scouring,
it had caught us both completely unaware.
We waited on pins and needles for weeks after, expecting a
second death and a second scar to follow in short order. But it
didn’t come. I think Katarina is still coiled, anxious, ready to
spring. But three years have passed—almost a quarter of my whole
life—and it’s just not something I think about much.
I step between her and the monitor. “It’s Sunday. Game time.”
“Please, Kelly.” She says my most recent alias with a certain
stiffness. I know I will always be Six to her. In my heart, too.
These aliases I use are just shells, they’re not who I really am. I’m
sure back on Lorien I had a name, a real name, not just a number.
But that’s so far back, and I’ve had so many names since then, that
I can’t remember what it was.
Six is my true name. Six is who I am.
Katarina bats me aside, eager to read more details.
We’ve lost so many game days to news alerts like this. And they
never turn out to be anything. They’re just ordinary tragedies.
Earth, I’ve come to discover, has no shortage of tragedies.
“Nope. It’s just a bus crash. We’re playing a game.” I pull at her
arms, eager for her to relax. She looks so tired and worried, I know
she could use the break.
She holds firm. “It’s a bus explosion. And apparently,” she says,
pulling away to read from the screen, “the conflict is ongoing.”
“The conflict always is,” I say, rolling my eyes. “Come on.”
She shakes her head, giving one of her frazzled laughs. “Okay,”
she says. “Fine.”
Katarina pulls herself away from the monitors, sitting on the
floor by the game. It takes all my strength not to lick my chops at
her upcoming defeat: I always win at Risk.
I get down beside her, on my knees.
“You’re right, Kelly,” she says, allowing herself to grin. “I
needn’t panic over every little thing—”
One of the monitors on Katarina’s desk lets out a sudden ding!
One of her alerts. Her computers are programmed to scan for
unusual news reports, blog posts, even notable shifts in global
weather—all sifting for possible news of the Garde.
“Oh come on,” I say.
But Katarina is already off the floor and back at the desk,
scrolling and clicking from link to link once again.
“Fine,” I say, annoyed. “But I’m showing no mercy when the
game begins.”
Suddenly Katarina is silent, stopped cold by something she’s
found.
I get up off the floor and step over the board, making my way to
the monitor.
I look at the screen.
It is not, as I’d imagined, a news report from England. It is a
simple, anonymous blog post. Just a few haunting, tantalizing
words:
“Nine, now eight. Are the rest of you out there?”

In BLACKTHORN, Cassidy (Shepard) survived, and is quietly living out his years under the name James Blackthorn in a secluded Bolivian village. Tired of his long exile from the US and hoping to see his family again before he dies, Cassidy sets out on the long journey home. But when an unexpected encounter with an ambitious young criminal (Eduardo Noriega) derails his plans, he is thrust into one last adventure, the likes of which he hasn’t experienced since his glory days with the Sundance Kid.

Scary Movie 5 Could Be On It's Way

Dimension Films has tapped Stephen Leff, John Aboud (The Comebacks) and Michael Colton (The Comebacks) to pen Scary Movie 5, the latest entry in the horror spoof franchise that kicked off in 2000 under the direction of the Wayans brothers, and grossed nearly $300 million worldwide.

Bloody Disgusting is being told that Dimension is hoping to bring back stars Anthony Anderson (Scary Movie 3, Scary Movie 4, Scream 4), Regina Hall (Scary Movie 1-4) and Kevin Hart (Scary Movie 3, Scary Movie 4, Superhero Movie), who have all appeared in multiple franchise sequels. Offers have been made, although nothing has been signed yet.

No word on if David Zucker is directing. Let's hope not.

There have been a wide variety of rumored cast members ranging from Anna Faris to Hulk Hogan, with an October 2009 report claiming the franchise would be remade. The only thing officially announced is that an April 20, 2012 date is hoped to be made.
