A new trailer has been released for John Moore’s adaptation of the best selling video game, “Max Payne”. Mark Wahlberg is Max Payne, a former police officer turned DEA agent whose family was brutally murdered and is on the run from the police for a murder that he was framed for. Add in a conspiracy, cultists, and an assassin (played by the lovely Mila Kunis) out to avenge her sister’s death, and you have one hell of a thrill ride. I loved the game and I have high hopes for the film. Keep reading to watch the new trailer, along with links to the old teasers!

I caught the trailer for “Everyone Wants to Be Italian” on YouTube completely randomly while jumping from video to video, and I am happy I did. The film looks like a charming and quirky (Italian) romantic comedy. The indie was written and directed by Jason Todd Ipson and will be opening up in limited release on September 5th. The film stars Jay Jablonski, Cerina Vincent, John Kapelos, John Enos III, Dan Cortese, and Penny Marshall.

The supporting cast in that trailer reminds me of my family. “What are you too good to be Italian?”

Today is shaping up to be one great day. First the rumor that Linda Hamilton might be returning to the Terminator franchise, and now we get a report that “Maniac Cop 4” is in the works! The Maniac Cop series (the first starred the icon known as Bruce Campbell… who also cameos in the second one) is one of those crazy cult horror series that started in the late 80s at the height of the slasher genre and released two sequels in the early 90s before disappearing (for what I thought would be forever). “Maniac Cop 3: Badge of Silence” ended with a wink at the audience and the door wide open for another go around.

And now, 15 years later, we might finally get that next go around. Fangoria is reporting that William Lustig, the director of all three of the Maniac Cop films, announced at a screening of the original film this past week that he had gotten the sequel rights back for Maniac Cop. He went on to say that he is currently preparing “Maniac Cop 4” along with Larry Cohen, the franchise’s sole screenwriter.

Hopefully Lustig and Cohen get the support and freedom that they need to make this picture. I for one would love to see it on the big screen, but would definitely settle for a DVD if the film were to go that route instead.

Fangoria is hosting a free screening of the aclaimed Spanish horror film “Shiver” in New York on October 15th.

The film “concerns the plight of a teenaged boy named Santi (Junio Valverde), who suffers from a strange ailment that makes him allergic to sunlight. His single mother (Blanca Suarez) decides to relocate the two of them to a secluded home in the country, but terrifying events, dark secrets and a strange creature living in the forest await them.”

Check out this page for more details on how you can obtain tickets to this free screening.

Superman Doomsday
Plot Summary: IMDB Synopsis (warning: spoilers)
Starring: Adam Baldwin (Clark Kent/Superman), Anne Heche (Lois Lane), and James Marsters (Lex Luthor).
Directed by: Lauren Montgomery, Bruce Timm, and Brandon Vietti.

“Superman Doomsday” marks the beginning of a new era for DC Comics animation. Produced in the style Bruce Timm made famous with “Batman: The Animated Series” and “Superman”, this film is adapted straight from one of DC Comic’s most famous storylines (the Death and Return of Superman) and was made for adults. The violence in the film is brutal and unforgiving. Nothing is held back in Doomsday’s rampage, or that of the Eradicator’s (fans of the comic will recognize that name that is sadly never mentioned in the film). One character’s death leaves a nice sized pool of blood and the image of a sheet draped over a murdered 7 year old girl is unsettling. I highly recommend viewing the film before you let anyone under 13 years old watch it.
