Sin City Sequel Is Up And Running

About a month ago, word came through that Robert Rogriguez was finally committing himself to the long-developing Sin City sequel. The news was met with a degree of cautious excitement, and a lot of we'll-believe-it-when-we-see-it shrugging, but word has this morning come through from Dimension Films that the newly officially monikered Sin City: A Dame To Kill For is properly up and running. Yeesh!

"The first question I'm always asked is 'When will you make another Sin City?'" says Rodriguez in the press release. "I've wanted to re-team with Frank Miller and return to the world he created since the day we wrapped the original, but we have felt a duty to the fans to wait until we had something truly exceptional that would meet and exceed what have become epic expectations. A Dame To Kill For will certainly be worth the wait!"

Frank Miller chimes in with "The first Sin City knocked out audiences who had never seen anything lke it before. Rober…

Sabrina The Teenage Witch To Get Hollywood Makeover

Sabrina The Teenage Witch is getting a makeover at Sony Pictures. The precocious teen witch who originated in 60s Archie Comics, is being recast as a superhero. The live action film will be an origin story in the vein of Spider-Man, about a young girl coming to terms with her remarkable powers.

Scribes Andrew Barrer & Gabriel Ferrari (they wrote Die In A Gunfight for MRC) will write the script, and Real Steel producers Don Murphy and Susan Montford are producing. Mark Waters, who worked on the presentation that Sony Pictures sparked to, might direct depending on scheduling. Archie Comics’ Jon Goldwater will be executive producer and screenwriter Jeff Stockwell, who also worked on the presentation, will be co-producer.

Sabrina previously had been turned into animated tv series in 1969, 1971 and again in 1999 and the source material was turned into the Melissa Joan Hart sitcom that ran seven seasons. While the tone of the movie will be edgier, they are keeping her talking black cat …

THE CABIN IN THE WOODS Movie Review

THE CABIN IN THE WOODS Movie Review By: Matt C

Of the many deplorable plot lines in today’s slasher films, none is more dubious than the “Drunken teens go on vacation to a remote cabin and suffer immeasurably at the hands of a psycho” arc. There’s always something totally unbelievable in watching this kind of fare, and I’ve smartly stayed away from many of them. If that’s your fancy, I appreciate your patience at watching the sexually available blonde getting whacked, followed by her boyfriend the jock, leaving only the intelligent people to plot their escape, usually culminating in either psychosis, death, or the ugly choice of who dies next.


However, the twists promised in THE CABIN IN THE WOODS were said to be so inventive that my attendance at a recent screening was necessary. So, does it deliver the goods, or confirm my fear that this entire genre needs a reboot?


The answer is mixed. While there is a pretty interesting plot twist that I won’t divulge, I can say it is big enoug…

The Avengers Are They Still Filming?

"Marvel's The Avengers" is hitting screens everywhere in three weeks. This past Wednesday, the film had its big Hollywood premiere, and after the screening Twitter was ablaze with positive comments from those who saw it. (Full disclosure: I was there and it is indeed awesome.) But is the movie really finished, or are the Avengers assembling one last time?

On Thursday the cast came together for a press conference in Beverly Hills, and Robert Downey Jr. let it slip that the superhero group might not be done saving the world. At the end of the event, Movieline reports Downey stated, "Not to keep you guessing, but we're actually not done shooting. We are shooting one more scene... tonight. Not kidding." He followed it with a curt "No more questions!" and the panel ended.

Many of the gathered journalists assumed that Downey was joking. Earlier in the press conference, after giving a heartfelt response about working with his costars, Downey said, …

Wilfred: The Complete First Season on Blu-Ray June 19th

On June 19th, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment will bring Wilfred: The Complete First Season to Blu-ray. The darkly comedic television series, which premiered on FX last year, focuses on the relationship between depressed lawyer Ryan Newman (Elijah Wood, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy) and his neighbor's dog Wilfred (Jason Gann, Thunderstruck).

"Everyone else sees a dog, but Ryan sees a bong-ripping, beer-chugging, foul-mouthed Australian bloke in a furry suit. By unleashing the surly, sweet, and always adventurous Wilfred, Ryan may just learn to stand on his own hind legs and embrace the insanity of real life."

Fox's two-disc set offers Wilfred's first season in its 1.78:1 broadcast aspect ratio with 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio tracks. The discs also contain a number of supplements, such as:
Wilfred & Bear: A Love Affair feature
Mary Jane Mash-up feature
Fox Movie Channel feature - Life after Film School: Jason Gann

Square Enix Batman: Arkham Asylum Figure Review

The guys over at onepercase have out done themselves again with this review of Play Arts Kai Batman: Arkham Asylum.

Square Enix has produced some of the best affordable museum-quality pieces in recent memory. How does the Play Arts Kai Batman: Arkham Asylum series hold up? Click on the jump to find out as we delve into their Batman No. 1.


Square Enix is well known for its various and excellent figure lines, particularly those in the Play Arts Kai line: each has demonstrated that companies like Hot Toys, SideShow, and others no longer have the monopoly on museum-quality pieces. Add to that the affordability of many of their lines ($50-100), and Square Enix is helping to re-write the industry. In no other line is this more true than with their offerings for Batman: Arkham Asylum series, in particular the Batman No. 1 release, which quite possibly the most amazing figure I've seen at this price point since the Marvel Select's large figure lines of The Hulks, Thanos, and Abomin…
