I saw a panel and behind the scenes footage for the adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s “Coraline” at the 2007 San Diego Comic-Con and it blew me away. Henry Selick (who directed “The Nightmare Before Christmas”) is directing “Coraline” in all of its stop motion glory in 3D. The teaser trailer for the film has hit the web and you can view it after the jump…

The IMDB’s Studio Briefings is reporting that restored versions of both “The Godfather” and “The Godfather Part 2” will be getting limited releases in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco. The first movie will be released the week of September 12th, followed by “Part 2” the week of the 26th.

Francis Ford Coppola has been supervising the restorations along with his cinematographer Gordon Willis and Robert Harris, a film preservationist who restored “Lawrence of Arabia”.  

Personally, I can not wait to see “The Godfather” on the big screen for the first time. It is one of those movies that completely deserves to be released in theaters for every generation. It is a real shame that it is only getting released in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco.

For more info, including some small changes in the films, you can find the original report here.

I’ve been updating our archives and adding in some older reviews written by Phasekitty. She takes an interesting angle with her reviews, comparing adapted films to their source material, or remakes to the original film. I’m really glad to have her as a part of the My Hollywood Dream team.

Here are some of the older reviews:

Latino Review has gotten their hands on two new posters for the upcoming film adaptation of “Max Payne”. The posters, which are completely badass, focus on the title character portrayed by Mark Wahlberg. You can check them out here.  The film co-stars Chris O’Donnell, Beau Bridges, Ludacris, Mila Kunis, Donal Logue, and Amaury Nolasco. I gotta ask, where are the sexy Mila Kunis posters?

And incase you haven’t watched it yet, check out the trailer below:

There have been a ton of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” related spin off proposals (a full list can be found here), but none of them came closer to happening than “Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Animated Series”.  The series was going to follow the Scooby Gang back in high school (for the first time with Dawn), with most of the cast reprising their roles (sans Sarah Michelle Gellar), and most of the writing team on board to write episodes.  The idea seemed solid, but for unknown reasons it never made it to air. Now, almost four years later, the pilot presentation has been leaked online!  Watch it, have your friends watch it, with enough views or the right hype, maybe all this time later it will make it to air. Weirder things have happened. 

For now, enjoy!

Access Hollywood has posted a deleted scene from Marvel Studios’ Iron Man. The scene takes place just before Iron Man leaves to fight terrorists in the Middle East. He sets up a party, makes sure to be seen and uses three beautiful women as his alibi as he goes to fight crime.

While it is a cool scene, I’m really glad it was deleted. I understand the need for the secret identity , but this just seems like a long drawn out thing for a “hero” to do while people are dying and need his help.
