Anthony Hopkins Dons the Neckmeat as Alfred Hitchcock

Nope, the picture you are seeing here is not an elderly George Lucas sans beard, pompadour hair and flannel shirt, rather this is our old pal Anthony Hopkins, he of Hannibal Lecter fame, in full Alfred Hitchcock get-up for his role in the new movie, aptly titled, Hitchcock. The Academy Award winner joins fellow Oscar-winner Helen Mirren, as well as Scarlett Johansson, Danny Huston, James D’Arcy, Jessica Biel, Michael Stuhlbarg and Toni Collette.  The film is based on the book

International PROMETHEUS Trailer Has Me Itching for June 8th!

Summer 2012 is going to be big, perhaps one for the ages, and it all started with a pretty decent spring lineup of movies with 21 Jump Street, The Hunger Games, Cabin in the Woods and The Five-Year Engagement leading the charge. Now we have The Avengers laying waste at the box office with nearly $500 million (in only three weeks) and movies like Men in Black 3 and Snow White & The Huntsman queued up and ready to partake

Ruby Sparks Trailer Makes Me Feel the Magic

Every single time a plucky, happy, love-is-magic, life-is-wonderful trailer crosses my view, I have to remind myself of Vanilla Sky, the 2001 Tom Cruise and Cameron Crowe disaster, which, based on the trailer, I thought was going to be Oscar winning cinema. Maybe it was Penelope Cruz and her Spanish charms, or maybe it was Peter Gabriel crooning “Solsbury Hill,” but I was convinced it was pure gold and then subsequently kicked smack dab in the gonads. 10 years later

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN Trailer Spins a Different Spidey Story

There’s some uproar on the web since the latest and longest and most revealing trailer for THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN went live, and I have to say, I completely disagree with the people pooping their drawers over the change in the origin of Peter Parker’s superpowers. As you will see in the trailer below – ahem, spoiler alert – we can pretty well surmise that a bite from a radioactive spider doesn’t give Mr. Parker his web-slinging abilities, but rather the

Halo 4 Webseries FORWARD UNTO TO DAWN Could Reignite Halo Movie

Remember back in 2006, a year before the release of the XBOX 360 game, Halo 3, when Peter Jackson brought every Master Chief-worshipping fanboy to the verge of nerdgasm with his announcement that he’d be producing a Neill Blomkamp-helmed (District 9) big-budget, live-action version of one of the most popular video-game franchises of all-time? I remember those days with fondness. I remember the haters crapping on Blomkamp’s lack of experience and I remember me giving them the bird when District

Full Prometheus Trailer Gives Me a Geekgasm!

Alien, Aliens and, gulp, even Alien 3 (notice how I didn’t mention the abomination called Alien Resurrection) have a special place in my Blu-ray collection and the sci-fi nerd inside me goes bananas as they play out on my 50 inch plasma TV. There are plenty of movies that do not hold up after the passage of time, but these three, particularly Alien and Aliens, hold up after, in the case of Alien, the passage of 30-plus years. I mention this

Color Me Not Excited: First Photo of Lone Ranger and Captain Jack Tonto

I wasn’t a kid in the late 1940s and early 1950s when The Lone Ranger was making waves on ABC, nor did I tune in via radio to one of the 2,956 episodes broadcast from 1933 to 1954, so it’s hard to have any nostalgia for a hero people pooping in Depends thought was the real deal. Sure he’s a cowboy and he has a cool mask, but I couldn’t even latch on with the 1981 movie, The Legend of The Lone

Prometheus Trailer for the Upcoming Trailer…

I will start by posing a question to Ridley Scott… Why has it taken you so long to decide to revive the sci-fi genre… again. A short trailer of the upcoming “full trailer” for Prometheus has been released online. Yes, you heard me correctly, a trailer for the trailer has been released. It has been a long time since Scott’s Alien and BladeRunner set the standard for science fiction, and several of his recent films have been underwhelming… Robin Hood,

The Hobbit: Set Video #6

Peter Jackson is awesome. I can’t think of another director that has involved the fans to the level that Jackson has during the filming of The Hobbit. I have loved each of the set videos he has released. Now, to be clear, I have watched all of the bonus material for the Lord of the Rings trilogy multiple times. I am not normally a behind the scenes junkie. Often times behind the scenes material is a mix of a bad

Guy Pearce Just Sold Me Prometheus

I, like others have been cautiously skeptical about Ridley Scott’s upcoming “prequel” to his massively popular Alien. I love the cast Scott has assembled, Michael Fassenberner and Idris Elba are two amazing actors who have yet to dissapoint me. I have been dissapointed with so many remakes/rehashes/reboots over the past decade, I didn’t want to suffer another let down by one of my favorite directors… yes I am talking to you Tim Burton (Planet of the Apes, Alice in Wonderland).
