Grab a coffee, some breakfast and fall into The Pit!
- The Sunday Mail is reporting that Stephen Dorff and director Stephen Norrington are teaming up for a new trilogy set in the Blade universe. They are reporting that the films will showcase Dorff’s Deacon Frost rising through the vampire ranks. Unless this is planned as a Straight to DVD series of prequels, I don’t see it happening. Who wants a Blade film without Blade? Plus after The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, who is going to go to theaters for a Norrington film. A Norrington STDVD, that I think I’d give a shot.
- As usual with video game news, I’m a bit delayed/behind. Game Informer’s July issue featured info on the return of Max Payne, and boy has he aged badly! The new game takes place 12 years after “The Fall of Max Payne” and I’m gonna assume that it follows the ending where Mona died. In the new game, Payne was cut from the NYPD and works in security for a wealthy family in São Paulo, Brazil. Of course, something goes wrong, there is betrayal, murder, and our film noir hero will be forced to save the day (or at least try to survive through it).
- The folks over at Topless Robot have written what has to be the BEST review/FAQ for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Click here to check it out and please, for the love of all there is, stop going to see it in theaters!
- There is a View-Master movie in the works. Why?
- The upcoming comedy Grown Ups will be teaming up ex-SNLers including Adam Sandler, Maya Rudolph, Rob Schneider, Tim Meadows, David Spade, Chris Rock, Norm Macdonald, Tim Herlihy and Colin Quinn as high school friends that meet up 30 years later. Dennis Dugan, who helmed the disappointing I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry, will be directing the flick.
- I didn’t realize just how much I missed the animated film spoofing TV series The Critic until I stumbled on 10 webisodes that were made between 2000 and 2001. How in the world did I not know about these? I might do a full spotlight article on them, but for now you can check out the first 3 webisodes on youtube.
