Even though "Death Race 2" hasn't hit shelves yet the good people at Universal are already planning a third installment to the series. I like this kind of confidence in a film. If only more people had the cahones like these guys and the people making all the "Lake Placid" movies then maybe the world wouldn't be in such bad shape right now.
The fellas that brought you "Open Water" will premiere their new film "Silent House" at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. The flick is based on a Uruguayan movie and is described as a "descent into madness". In other news I have no idea where Uruguay is and was clueless to the fact that they have electricity there let alone film equipment.
Dear lord I don't want to make thise joke because I assume every other site is doing it but it's just to damn easy. Vincent Pastore of "The Sopranos" and Jasmin St. Claire of a gazillion porn movies plan on staring in a new zombie flick titled "Blood Lodge". You see it's funny because he played Big Pussy and she... well, ya know. Teehee!
Kevin Smith has decided he will only do Podcast and Radio interviews for his upcoming film "Red State" because he can do those from home and he's gotten way to big to travel to any TV studios. And when I say big I mean fat. And yes I am BSing about the second part. So please Kevin Smith, don't deny your fans the chance to gaze upon your giant head and chicken wing sauce stained beard. Don't be so cruel.

A man in South Carolina was taken to the hospital after being hit by an SUV while playing a real life game of Frogger. The good news is he still has two lives left so everything should be cool.
And here's a man in Oklahoma City who's being arrested for murder after he shot his wife. Why did he do it? Well apparently the Mrs. and him liked to role play with the gun while doing the nasty. I'm not sure if the gun being loaded was part of the fun but I'm guessing it probably shouldn't have been.
I had all these fun sarcastic things to say about the new trailer for "Black Death" but I just don't have it in me. This red band sucker has witches, people getting poked with spikes and all around Medieval nastiness. Unfortunately now I just feel like I need a shower and I'd like to take a nap.
All kinds of hot pics have hit the tubes from the soon to be classic "Dead Race 2". Yes it's direct to DVD and no there's no Jason Statham but hey they still have cars in the movie with machine guns and stuff. That's still something, right?
Two new posters for Kevin Smith's "Red State" have been released and about as fun as shooting a toothless hog outside of a trailer hitch. Or at least that's what I assume the people in those posters would say. maybe something about vittles. Point being they look like they're a product of inbreeding. Get it?
In case you've been up all night wondering if Heather Morris from "Glee" is actually being considered for the role of Buffy in the upcoming re-make/re-boot/re-whogivesashit then I'm happy to report you can finally sleep. She is being considered. Happy now?

Here's a story about a dog in Germany who gave birth to 17 puppies! I have no idea if this is uncommon but I assume that if people write about it then it's weird. I can't imagine they would write stories about a dog who gives birth to one extra puppy or something.
And just in time for the holidays here's a story about a Yacht Club bar in Rhode Island that was robbed by a guy dressed up as Santa. This all sounds very classy and sad at the same time.
Good news for those of you who hate your childhood memories! There's a remake of both "Firestarter" and "Maximum Overdrive" in the works. The later I am a bit worried about because I heart it so, the first one though I can't wait to see that song by The Prodigy become popular again. No one else remembers it? Get off my lawn!
Who's excited for "Death Race 2"?! What, only Jon and I? You all disappoint me. Anyway here's some new clips and what the kids call a featurette from the hot new flick that surprisingly will not see a theater release.
Shooting for the upcoming space horror flick "Apollo 18" is currently set to begin on December 20th. Which is interesting seeing how the film has a confirmed release date of March 4th. Now I'm not a mathologist but that sounds like a really short time to make a big time movie that's going to be in theaters. I look forward to the DVD release on April 13th though.
Ron Howard checked in with an update on his big and little screen adaptation of Stephen King's "The Dark Tower" series. Apparently he's both excited and violently ill about the opportunity to turn Mr. King's life work into walking pictures. Alright maybe he didn't say violently ill but I can read between the lines.
As a dad what can you do when your 17 year old daughter decides to date a 57 year old man? Well if you're like this guy in Germany you can go out and castrate the guy. After that you probably don't have to worry about those two crazy kids going out and having a good time.
