The Crazies

The Crazies is a remake of George Romero’s horror classic from 1973 that I really look forward to see, as it smash into the theaters on February 26, 2010.

This the Sahara director, Breck Eisner has directed this remake, which stars Timothy Olyphant (A Perfect Getaway, Hitman), Radha Mitchell (Silent Hill, The Surrogates) and Danielle Panabaker (Friday the 13th, Mr. Brooks).

The story revolves around David Dutton (Timothy Olyphant), who is the sheriff in a town filled with law abiding residents. This abruptly changes one day, as a person attends to a school baseball game, armed with a loaded shotgun, ready to fire.

Next, another resident traps his wife and son inside a closet, before he sets his house on fire, thus burning them alive.

The Graves

The easiest way of describing Brian Pulido’s, The Graves, is to picture the road movie Thelma & Louise by Ridley Scott, on steroids.

In The Graves, we follow the two inseparable sisters Megan and Abby, as they decide to get on a wild road trip, to blow off some steam, before Megan begins her new job.

Even though Megan and Abby have similar interests, like an obsession with comics, pop culture and rock and roll, they have different personalities.

While Megan is a self-assured, naturally attractive rock chick, Abby is a cute Hot Topic Goth who is afraid of her own shadow.

3 New Wolfman Stills

Here are three new stills, from Joe Johnston’s, much anticipating monster movie, The Wolfman, which will have its premiere next year.

Even though they doesn’t show us any juicy shoots of Benicio Del Toro going berserk as the werewolf, I enjoy them nonetheless.

I especially like the mystic and creepy scenery in them, which makes me more confident that The Wolfman will rock us in our seats on February 12, next year, or what do you think?

The Golden Globe Nominations – I’m not pleased

Today the nominations for the 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards went public and it contained a big surprise, from my point of view, which made me very disappointed.

I was convinced that John Noble would receive a nomination, given his breathtaking portrayal of Walter Bishop, in Fringe, which I think is one of the best performance, on television, in years. Therefore, I got rather stunned, as I realized that they skipped him and I serious question their judgment.

The way Noble plays his character is awe-inspiring. It’s a joy to see how he uses his body language, facial skills and voice, to present such a magnificent interpretation of, the emotional and psychological rollercoaster, Dr Bishop.
