Toy Story 3 (Rex)

Pixar has released a poster for Toy Story 3 featuring Rex the Green Dinosaur (Wallace Shawn). Given the release of the film isn’t until next June, I would expect each character to get their own poster including Mr. Pricklepants. It’s Toy Story, I’m not going to try to hype this up, just give into that inner child you know it’s going to be great. Rex Poster from myspace after the jump. Read the rest of this entry »

9 10 2009

In an interview with Collider, J.J. Abrams set the record straight on some controversies that emerged from this summer’s blockbuster Star Trek, and laid the groundwork for an eagerly anticipated sequel. One of the elements that was praised in his take on the classic sci-fi series is how much fun it was for both diehards and nonfans, and Abrams says he and writing team of Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are trying to keep that feeling.

One of the ways he may be looking at adding an element of wonder to the production is filming the sequel in 3D. Read the rest of this entry »

9 10 2009

Academy Award winner Jamie Foxx in an interview with MTV revealed he’s serious about bringing the life of former World Heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson to the big screen. This has been one of those projects that has been rumored for years, but it seems like Foxx is kick starting it. In addition to making the rounds selling his interest in the project (with Tyson’s backing), but he wants to bring director Taylor Hackford on-board as well. Hackford directed Foxx in his Oscar-winning turn in Ray telling the story of legendary musician Ray Charles.

Foxx seemed to sympathize with the former boxer who is undergoing somewhat of a career revitalization in film.

“Look at society. Sometimes we put you up so high, and some people say it’s to get aim on you, but once you get up there it’s like: What do you do once you’re up there now?” Read the rest of this entry »

Avatar

Spoiler Tv came through with some new high-resolution pics from Avatar that truly look incredible. I know this movie is getting all kinds of hype from everywhere but speaking for myself, I’m just that excited. There were an additional 20 minutes of footage that came out at Fantastic Fest that people are universally loving, and what I saw at Avatar Day and the footage from Comic-Con in real 3D is breathtaking. We won’t know for sure until December, but James Cameron’s track record I would expect this to live up to the hype. Photos after the break. Read the rest of this entry »





Watch It!: Willy Wonka Tunnel Of Hell Reversed

8 10 2009

Youtube user Mariofire has given us today’s Watch It! which is quite frankly one of the more disturbing things I’ve seen in a while. For some sadistic reason, they came up with the idea to flip the scene in the tunnel from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and play it backwards. The result is an angry German version of the chocolatier in front of an even more trippy background. If you’ll excuse me I have to go out and buy more chocolate to appease my new demonic overlord.
