Alexander Skarsgard is now apparently the top runner to take the lead in "The Crow" remake. Please update your t-shirts accordingly, Hot Topics of the world.
I'm not the least bit ashamed that I am petrified of Eric Bana. Olivia Munn not so much. But the two of them together will leave me feeling just fine when they hit the big screen on January 16, 2015 in "Beware the Night". The film is Scott Derrickson's follow up to "Sinister" and follows a New York cop who investigating real life demon possessions, exorcisms and werewolves after dark. So that's just shy of two years away. Get pumped kids.
"The Town That Dreaded Sundown", a remake of the 1976 film with the same name, has found it's leading youngster in the form of newcomer Travis Tope. Tope will plat a high school student who lives in a town that is tormented by a serial killer. He's never done anything before. I have no ammo here. Well played Hollywood.
Rob Zombie was miserable making the "Halloween" remakes, he wanted to make "The Blob" remake dark and gritty and he actually paid some poor company to have "Freebird" in a movie of his. That and other exciting news in this new interview.

Five people were shot at a Florida crab fest which actually turned out to be an excuse for a bunch of people to get together and shoot each other. I'm not even sure there was crab being served. What a disappointing day all around for crab lovers in Florida.
Alexius Keys, who I originally read as Alicia Keys, is under arrest after she ran over her ex's new girlfriend with her car. This story would have been a lot more exciting if it was Alicia Keys.
Eric Bana is the newest name being tossed around to play the bearded one in the big screen adaptation of "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter". Much to my surprise Eric Bana is not the guy who played Superman in the 90's on that show with the girl form "Desperate Housewives". Apparently that was Dean Cain. Who knew.
Here's a movie called "Limitless" where Bradley Cooper takes a super drug that allows him to use 100% of his brain. He of course uses this power to sleep with tons of women which I am pretty sure is something the current Bradley Cooper can do without even having to use 10% of his brain. Thanks Hollywood, maybe next you can come up with a movie about how I'll never be skinny again.
"I Saw the Devil" and all I got was this lousy t-shirt! I'm 99% sure I've used that joke before but it doesn't matter, this serial killer flick from the far east will hit limited theaters and VOD on March 4th. Feel free to tell me if the far east comment was racist, I don't think so but I've been wrong before.
"From Disk Till Dawn" and "Amityville Horror", two films which I was pretty sure already had sequels, are slated to see theatrical followups sometime in the near future. This is all according to a press release from The Weinstein Company and I didn't get it so who knows how trustworthy it is. Maybe they lost my gmail account though. Call me, guys!

It's always sad when you hear about a kid's Christmas presents being stolen. Especially when it turns out it's their mother stole the presents to trade for crack. Although it's heartwarming when a mother gets her crack, so the two sort of negate each other.
I don't know what it is about women but the moment a fight breaks out they shoot right for the nipples. Like this woman who ripped off her daughter-in-law's nipple after she got drunk and started a fight. Happens all the time.
