Nearly 70 years after Lon Chaney Jr. first howled at the moon, Benicio Del Toro is slipping into his signature hair, ears and underbite to bring the classic Universal monster to life in Joe Johnston’s remake of The Wolf Man. With Anthony Hopkins, Hugo Weaving and Emily Blunt along for the ride, and the visual effects make-up artist behind The Howling and An American Werewolf in London, it looks like this remake has got some serious teeth.
When we heard that Ryan Reynolds teamed up with Spanish Director Rodrigo Cortes to make a film that takes place exclusively in a coffin for 90-minutes, we were terrified and intrigued. When it rocked Sundance and got a $3-Million Lionsgate distribution deal right after its premiere, we were sold! SO sit back, relax, and get freaked out by these clips from the film and see Ryan & Rodrigo the night of the Sundance premiere!
If you’re looking for a director who can completely erase stuffy, old British boredom, you don’t have to go any further than Guy Ritchie. And so giving him the reigns to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous Victorian detective seems like something of an inspired gamble. With Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law taking the roles of Holmes and Watson, and Canadian starlet Rachel McAdams playing a deliciously villainous love interest, the cast is as strong as the source material, but we’ll have to wait until Christmas to see what’s inside the packaging.
When Roland Emmerich destroys the world, he does it with a certain panache. Independence Day, Godzilla, Day After Tomorrow are some of his previous epic disaster movies and 2012 looks to be kicking it up yet again. With an off-beat cast including genre favourites like John Cusack, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Woody Harrelson, the Mayan doomsday is compounded by a government conspiracy and some of the biggest scale earth-ending images we’ve ever seen!
Watch scenes from the movie and interviews with the cast and crew! It’s taken decades to finally happen, but Maurice Sendak’s beloved children’s book, Where the Wild Things Are has finally been adapted to the silver screen. The only thing less predictable is that the director who would accomplish this feat is Spike Jonze! With a history of wild music videos and MTV’s Jackass under his belt, he’d seem an unlikely choice, but he’s been friends with Sendak for years and after plenty of buzz about re-fanging the controversial 60′s book for a modern audience, this creature effect driven story about childhood is finally ready!
Woody Harrelson and Jesse Eisenberg look like they make an incredible comedic duo in Ruben Fleischer’s directorial debut, Zombieland, but there’s a delicate balance to ride between that comedy and the horror elements that makes Zombie movies really knock it out of the park. We’re both easily as excited about this one as we were about any summer movies that came our way, whether that’s because Matt loves him some Sam Raimi-style horror/comedy or because Nat has an abnormally active imagination when it comes to surviving a Zombie pandemic, you can bet we’ll be inline for the midnight screening!
