Shutter Island Pushed back until 2010 Moviegoers won't be going to " Shutter Island " this fall, as Paramount has moved the Martin Scorsese-directed thriller, starring Leonardo DiCaprio , from Oct. 2 to Feb. 19.

Inglorious Bastards Movie Review

Inglorious Bastards Movie Review Review By:Chocolate Thunder This film is classic Tarantino . Inglorious Bastards starts off in Tarantino fashion giving us the credits in the beginning, with the cool 80's soundtrack playing. Also in Tarantino fashion the movie has a few different story lines in it that keeps you bouncing around the movie, but never lost. The movies stars are Brad Pitt as Lt Aldo Raine, Christoph Waltz as Col. Hans Landa, and Melanie Laurent as Shosanna Dreyfus. The story imcumbuses the three lives into one explosive ending.

Last thing, subtitles are all through the movie, if you dont speak German, French, or italian get ready to read. I give it 8 Sandwichs out of 10 Please leave Comment-

Karl Urban to Star in the Movie Priest Do we really need another Vampire money. Looks like Hollywood thinks so. Let's see how this one turns out.

Is Catherine Hardwicke going to Direct 21 Jump Street Movie?

Catherine Hardwicke 'Isn't Attached' To Direct '21 Jump Street' I have always been a HUGE fan of the TV show 21 Jump Street since I was a Kid, Shit I still watch the series on DVD every now and then. Will Johnny Depp Be willing to Join the cast? Catherine Hardwicke (Director of Twilight ) taking the reins for "The Girl With the Red Riding Hood," you may have noticed that the Variety article also pins the "Twilight" director to " 21 Jump Street." That project, adapted from the '80s TV series about undercover cops operating as high school students, already has a script from Jonah Hill. No other announcements have been made however, so it is surprising to see such seemingly big news revealed in such an offhand way. As it turns out, there was no reveal. Hardwicke's publicist told MTV that "it's too early" to say anything, and that Hardwicke "isn't attached" to the adaptation. While that certainly leav

Fourth Jason Bourne Gets a Screen Writer

Fourth Jason Bourne Gets a screen writer It seems like Josh Zetumer is a Hot writer who is very busy these days. Josh Zetumer,is generating heat around town for writing “Dune” for Peter Berg and Paramount. He wrote “The Infiltrator” for Warner Bros., to which Leonardo DiCaprio is attached and is being produced by Management 360,Appian Way and David Benioff. Josh Zetumer has signed on to pen the fourth installment of Universal’s “ Bourne ” movie series, writing what is being described as a parallel script. George Nolfi , who worked on “The Bourne Ultimatum,” initially came back for the fourth entry. He also boarded to write and direct “The Adjustment Bureau,” an adaptation of a Philip K. Dick short story that reteams him with “Bourne” star Matt Damon . But as that movie nears its September start date, Nolfi had to step away from “Bourne.” Not wishing to slow development and keen on making “Bourne” part of its 2011 slate, Universal hired Zetumer to write a new script. It is unclear wha

Star Wars Live Action Show to begin Filming this Year

Star Wars Live Action Show to begin Filming this Year Lucas wants to film the live action series covering the "dark times" period of Star Wars lore between Episode 3 and Episode 4, in Prague, the capitol of the Czech Republic. He hopes to get a tax break from the government there. The series is intended to elaborate on the rebellion against the Empire whose head is Palpatine, a Sith Lord, (the Jedi's greatest enemy, an anti-Jedi), but supposedly will not feature either the emperor or Darth Vader. However, there is always the possibility the series will focus on Vader's hunt for the remaining Jedi that survived the purge in Revenge of the Sith. In any case, the primary characters will not be Jedi but ordinary beings from the Star Wars universe whose roles are usually overshadowed by the pivotal Jedi characters in all of the six movies. There will be appearances by Obi Wan Kenobi and at least one other Jedi - Quinlan Vos, who never made an appearance in any of the prequ

Shazam Gets a Writer for his own Movie

Shazam Gets a Writer for his own Movie Actor-turned-writer Bill Birch has been tapped to reboot " Shazam !," Warners' adaptation of a DC Comics series featuring Captain Marvel . Geoff Johns, one of the three DC Comics heavyweights hired by the studio to act as consultants on DC projects, is also helping with the kick-start, co-writing the story with Birch. It's somewhat fitting that Birch takes on "Shazam!" as his very name echoes the name of the comic's hero, Billy Batson, a teenager who becomes Captain Marvel when he utters the magic word "Shazam!" The name is an acronym for six gods and heroes of the ancient world as well as their attributes: the wisdom of Solomon, the strength of Hercules, the stamina of Aries, the power of Zeus, the courage of Achilles and the speed of Mercury. The project, which was housed at New Line for several years, has had a tough time taking flight, with writers William Goldman, Bryan Goluboff, Joel Cohen and Ale

Updates on Star Trek and Heroes from Zachary Quinto

Updates on Star Trek and Heroes from Zachary Quinto Here is the Trailer to the New Season of Heroes . After attending the Heroes panel during Comic Con and watching the Trailer all I can say is WOW. The new season reminds me of the First season. I can only hope that they turn Heroes around to what it once was. Zachary Quinto, who memorably played young Spock in J.J. Abrams' Star Trek, said that filmmakers are in no hurry to mount a sequel, though he acknowledges everyone would like one next year. Quinto also offered us an update on several new projects and his NBC series Heroes. Here is an update on Star Trek 2 . With regard to Star Trek, "I know that they're breaking the stories and working on it," Quinto said in an interview Wednesday at the Video West Arcade in Glendale, Calif., where he was launching the Stride Gum "Save the Arcades" campaign. "J.J. [Abrams] and Bobby [Orci] and Alex [Kurtzman]. But I think those guys have other things that they

Sean Connery's Outland Getting a remake By Warner Brothers

Sean Connery's Outland Getting a remake By Warner Brothers Looks like another 80's Movie that is going to get a remake. The Original movie was about Marshal W.T. O'Niel is assigned to a mining colony on Io, one of Jupiter's moons. During his tenure miners are dying - usually violently. When the marshal investigates he discovers the one thing all the deaths have in common is a lethal amphetamine-type drug, which allows the miners to work continuously for days at a time until they become "burned out" and expire. O'Niel follows the trail of the dealers, which leads to the man overseeing the colony. Now O'Niel must watch his back at every turn, as those who seek to protect their income begin targeting him. We have a soft spot in our hearts for Outland, the 1981 Sean Connery outer-space western loosely modeled on High Noon, so it comes as good news that Warner Brothers and Hollywood Gang Productions are developing a remake. Shoot 'Em Up director Michae

Will Remake Of Nightmare On Elm Street be Better Then The Original?

Will Remake Of Nightmare On Elm Street be Better Then The Original? Originally portrayed by Robert Englund , Freddy Krueger invaded dreams for eight films and a two-season TV series, Freddy's Nightmares. His nightmares ranged from the standard gutting to the more elaborate human roach motel. Cassidy said new Nightmare director Bayer has scarier things in store for his Freddy, played by Watchmen's Jackie Earle Haley . The original Nightmare on Elm Street horror film series made Freddy Krueger so popular that fans welcomed his appearances when they were supposed to fear him. But the creators of the new Nightmare on Elm Street want to make Freddy scary again, and star Katie Cassidy said they succeeded: She was terrified. "It's going to scare the s--t out of people," Cassidy said in a group interview earlier this month in Pasadena, Calif., where she was promoting the CW series Melrose Place. "I definitely think people are going to freak out. It was really emo

Will The Movie Surrogates Follow the Graphic Novel?

Will The Movie Surrogates Follow the Graphic Novel? It Looks like that it might not. Jonathan Mostow , director of the upcoming Bruce Willis sci- fi /action film Surrogates , had never heard of the Robert Venditti /Brett Weldele graphic novel on which it's based (and which is actually entitled The Surrogates ), but that didn't stop the director of Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines from signing on to the project. "I got involved nearly two years ago, and it began with the graphic novel," Mostow said recently in an exclusive telephone interview. "I just immediately responded to the concept. There's just something incredibly resonant about the idea. It's almost a metaphor for the way we're living our lives right now. It's a story that asks the question 'How do you stay human in this relentlessly, increasingly technological world we live in?' The graphic novel ... may have a different meaning for everybody who reads it, on a specific level

Hancock 2 Spoiler From Director Peter Berg

Hancock 2 Spoiler From Director Peter Berg I still remember Peter Berg in Cocky Romano . What a Bad Movie. Peter Berg, director of the superhero movie Hancock , has some ideas for a sequel if one ever comes to pass, and he shared his ideas with SCI FI Wire. (Spoilers ahead!) At the end of last year's Hancock, it was revealed that Will Smith's superpowered character was actually an immortal god who became vulnerable only when in the presence of his goddess companion (Charlize Theron). Berg confirmed that a sequel would elaborate on the film's mythology. "There might be another god out there," Berg said in an exclusive interview last month in Pasadena, Calif. "Might be another one." If two gods render each other mortal, imagine what kind of wrench a third would throw into the mix. Also, imagine the casting to match up with Will Smith and Charlize Theron! In the mythology of Hancock, all the gods supposedly died out except for our heroes, so a third deity

The Volturi refused, Aro in particular wanted Edward to join them, and Edward decided to force their hand by exposing himself to the humans of the city.

Especially since this movie was remade in 1985 Which Starring Richard Pryor and John Candy . It was a great movie from my childhood and I Still enjoy watching it to this day. I have never seen the Original movie from 1945 Starring Dennis O'Keefe . It just seems like a trend right now to remake Classic Movies. Most of them are nowhere near as good as the Original movie. Since they are going to remake the movie who should they pair up in the movie? I would like to see Danny McBride and Terry Crews maybe.

Sony Hires Screen Writer for Spider-Man 5 & 6 Let's See if Michael Papajohn Who is an all round Good Guy and and a friend of mine, will be making an appearance in any of the new Spider Man movies. We over here at Sandwichjohnfilms can only hope so. As Sony Pictures Entertainment preps a fourth installment of "Spider-Man" to begin production early next year, the studio has quietly engaged screenwriter James Vanderbilt to pen "Spider-Man 5" and "Spider-Man 6." Vanderbilt was the first writer on "Spider-Man 4." Director Sam Raimi brought on "Rabbit Hole" playwright David Lindsay-Abaire to rewrite him, and Gary Ross is now rewriting that script. The studio is enthusiastic about where it stands as the picture begins prepping for an early 2010 production start for a May 2011 release. Raimi didn't embrace all of Vanderbilt's ideas, but execs at Columbia Pictures and Marvel Studios have. Vanderbilt has been hired to pen the f

DC/Vertigo Comics Midnight Madness Being made into TV show For NBC

DC/Vertigo Comics Midnight Madness Being made into TV show For NBC Looks like everyone is trying to get their hands in to the Comic Book Cookie Jar.

Is The WWE The New Talk Show Circuit?

Is The WWE The New Talk Show Circuit? Hollywood is trying something new and it's working.I like the Idea of Hollywood adding to wrestling and giving it a like spice to the shows, also adds a flare to the WWE that has been lacking in years. WWE has been lacking the superstar power with Personality that once ruled the show " The Rock , Stone Cold and Hulk Hogan " And I think that this will be bring back the Old School audience like myself that gave up on the WWE years ago. Celebrities and their handlers may have found an unusual alternative to the traditional talkshow circuit when promoting projects: a wrestling ring. For the past two months, World Wrestling Entertainment has essentially handed over its "Monday Night Raw" show on USA Network to guest hosts, who arrange matches and interact with the WWE's wrestlers while touting their new movies, TV shows, books and other fare. Jeremy Piven recently stepped into the ring to promote his laffer "The Goods:

Is the Weinstein Brothers Ship Sinking?

Is the Weinstein Brothers Ship Sinking? I sure hope that Bob and Harvey Weinstein get their shit together. They have made some great movies in the past. But not putting any money behind them to promote the movies is Horse shit. You spend all this money to make the movie and then don't put anything into promoting it. Real Smart. Get it together and bring back the old magic that made this team on of the best out there. IN the wee hours of Friday morning, Quentin Tarantino stood in a West Village bar that had opened for him and his entourage — cast members of his new movie, “ Inglourious Basterds ,” and his longtime producers, Bob and Harvey Weinstein. Swinging a blue cocktail in one hand, he held forth about the time that Harvey told him he’d like to invest in a restaurant. The goal, Harvey explained to Mr. Tarantino at the time, wasn’t to schmooze, or to get the best table. New York City had just banned cigarettes from restaurants and Harvey, then an avid smoker, didn’t approve. “
