Sophisticult Cinema is closing all the loops this episode.

Writer-Director Rian Johnson has been a peronal favorite of mine for several years. His 2005 high school set crime noir classic "Brick" cemented him on my 'to watch list' of young directors going forward. His 2008 film "The Brothers Bloom" is much lighter and doesn't reach the lofty heights of "Brick", but maintains Johnson's own personal touch and charm. Add in two episodes of the AMC drama Breaking Bad that he's directed, and I could be considered a bona fide fanboy. Needless to say, I have been feverishly anticipating "Looper" for a long time.

These days you can’t spit in a comic book store without hitting a graphic novel that’s being made into a movie. Trust me, I tried, and I’m still waiting for the Bloody Good Horror accounts payable department to reimburse me for the bill.

Bruce Willis to star in "Grimm", a ghost story with one of the longest synopses I've ever seen... which can be found at the link. Directed by Russel Mulcahey, who also helmed 2007's "Resident Evil: Extinction".

Lars Von Trier's controversial film "Antichrist" has been picked up by IFC films. Hot off the controversy it caused at Cannes with its graphic violence, the film will now be coming to US shores as early as this summer. No word on what type of release IFC will give the film, but they are known for non-traditional theatrical/on demand models.

New Platinum Dunes blog on their "Nightmare on Elm St." shooting. Of course they're going to be positive, but word is that Jackie Earle Haley's rendition of Krueger is just as kick-ass as most of us have anticipated. Don't get me wrong, I'm still withholding excitement, but consider my curiosity peaked.
