James Bond 23 News

It is well over a year, before the 23rd James Bond movie will see the inside a theater, as it premiere is planned to November 18, 2011. Nevertheless, rumors about the plot has been circulating around the net for some time now, for example that Bond would head off to Afghanistan to fight drug smuggling, for instance.

Also, one writer on the project, Peter Morgan, revealed in an interview that the story would be shocking. However, since then Morgan has left the project, so who knows what he meant and if that twist is still on. The most shocking I could think of, would be that they killed of M, but that is very far fetch though, since I think that Judi Dench does a great job and gives the franchise a bit of weight.

I Love You Phillip Morris Postponed

If you’re waiting to see Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor cuddling in the dark and gayish comedy, I Love You Phillip Morris, you may need to wait a long time, since its distributor Consolidated Pictures Group has decided to put in on hold, in worst case indefinitely.

I don’t think it is the gay theme in the movie that is the problem, considering that Brokeback Mountain paved that road, a long time ago, I guess its more a question about money and that CPG doesn’t have the financial strength to release it, just yet.

Regardless of the reason, it creates a rather funny situation. Even though the movie was filmed almost two years ago in the US, it’s more likely that it will be out on DVD/Blu-ray in Europe, before it sees the inside of a US cinema.

The Human Centipede (First Sequence)

I cannot help to wonder if Tom Six isn’t in fact the secret lovechild between H.P Lovecraft and Clive Barker. Who else could have come up with such a macabre and gut-wrenching story, yet still so weird and fascinating that you cannot help yourself from wanting to view it?

The plot in The Human Centipede is twisted, so twisted that it makes it to one-of-a-kind movie. It revolves around two American girls, who are on a road trip through Europe. One night, their car brakes down, in the middle of the woods, and they head to a nearby house, to ask for help.

Supernatural Episode 17: 99 Problems

CW has released a fresh web-clip from the upcoming Supernatural episode, 99 Problems. In the last episode, Dean and Sam had a one way talk with God, which did not end well for them, as God told them that they shouldn’t expect any more help from Him.

It was also revealed that God was the one who put them on an airplane in the first episode of this season, Sympathy For The Devil. He was also the one who put Cass back together, after being ripped to pieces by an archangel, as well. After hearing that, Cass lost his faith and gave back the amulet, with which he planned to find God, to Dean.

Transformers 3 Starts to Roll Out

With both pre-shoots and auditions going down this month, it’s safe to say that Michael Bay’s Transformers 3 is starting to roll out.

On April 12, a crew of about 60 people will head to Indiana to shoot a pre-vis scene at an industrial property, owned by the Majestic Star Casino. The scene, which will be shoot in daylight and represent Ukraine, will only include a couple of vehicles approaching the property.

However, there is no need to head down there, in the hopes of spotting some stars, though, as the shoot will be closed for the public. Besides, it’s unlikely that any of the main actors will be present, since it’s just a pre-vis scene. Besides Indiana, the movie will also be shoot in Chicago, Florida, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, Texas, Africa, Moscow and China.

Resident Evil: Afterlife – Teaser Trailer

It’s time for Alice to set the record straight, once and for all(?), with the umbrella company and by the looks of the teaser trailer, which has fought its way to the net, it seems to contain everything I hoped it would – some savage zombie-killing action!

Resident Evil: Afterlife will come in 3D, which is something that this teaser constantly remind us of, by handpicked scenes, which will probably look cool in 3D, like the airplane and the sunglasses scenes. Besides those, the teaser shows us Alice in full throttle, as she kicks some ass in a couple of astonishing fighting sequences.

We can also see that they have brought the majini zombies, including the Executioner, from the latest video game, as well. But, besides that the movie still doesn’t seem to have that much in common with the video game franchise, though.

As for the plot, Afterlife takes on where the Extinction ended, with Alice roaming around the world, looking for any survivors. Her search takes her to Los Angeles where she discovers a prison, filled with survivors, surrounded by zombies.

Alice joins a group of other survivors and together they start to free the ones caught in the prison. However, soon they discover that they are about to step right into a lethal trap. My best guess is that the trap is set up by the Umbrella company and that we might see the final battle between them and Alice, as she promised in the last movie.

I liked what the teaser had to show and look forward to see some more juicy action in the theatrical trailer, which will hit us sometime in July or August, before the movie rage into the theaters on September 10, this fall.

50 Best Movie Titles (So far)

Movie titles are fascinating, are they not? They are also powerful, since they can almost make or break a movie on their own. I think that a good movie title should be able to draw you towards it, wanting to learn more about what kind of story that could be lurking behind it. Of course, it does not hurt if they are funny or provocative as well.

Since I have a thing for list and compilations, of any kind, I decided to pen down what I consider to be the best movie titles, so far in movie history. I know that my list probably differs from what you consider to be good titles. Therefore, feel free to add your own titles in the comments below.

Ready? Then let us get started!

Splice – The Next Step in the Evolution of Horror

Splice is a Sci-Fi horror, from the Cube director Vincenzo Natali and the screenwriters Doug Taylor and Antoinette Terry Bryant, which received generally positive reviews since it was screened at the Sundance Film Festival, in January.

The movie centers on two rebellious scientists Elsa and Clive, who disobeys the ethical and legal boundaries with their genetically-engineered experiments.

In their latest experiment, they manage to splice together human and animal DNA, with a both fascinating and shocking result – a new organism. They name their creation, Dren, which rapidly grows from a deformed female infant, into a beautiful but deadly human chimera.

Angelina Jolie in Salt

I heard first about the movie Salt, about a year ago, just as the filming started. The thing that I thought to be the most interesting about it was that since Tom Cruise, who was original thought to play the lead, couldn’t be part of it, they decided to rewrite the script and go with a female lead instead – Angelina Jolie.

Since spy movies isn’t exactly my favorite genre and the plot, which revolves around a CIA officer being accused to be a KGB sleeper spy, didn’t appeal to me, it slipped under my radar.

However, today it popped up again, in a newsletter from Sony Pictures, so I decided to at least check out the trailer and it turned out to be far from what I had expected!
