Little advice... when you hear a movie scoop that's on a site you've never heard of, chances are it's not true. Which would be why we didn't report on the potential "Hannibal" sequel that everyone else was all over this weekend. Turns out it only took a day or two to prove it false, with more info on the whole situation at the link.
Teaser posters for "Humpty Dumpty", about an alien who takes revenge on some rednecks who abuse his mother. Why the title? Well, the posters seem to explain that, at least sort of. "Humpty Dumpty" is being directed by "Final Destination 2" and "Snakes on a Plane" helmer David R. Ellis.
According to a press release sent out at Cannes recently, the zombie film "Pontypool" may get a sequel within a years time. Should be interesting considering not too many people outside of the film festivals have even had a chance to see it yet!
1936: Tokyo gangster Kichizo Ishida is accidentally strangled by his mistress during a session of rough sex. Ishida had been a "gasper," someone who enjoys the sexual effects of asphyxiation. The woman, Sada Abe, indulged him by wrapping her pink kimono belt around his neck. After her lover's death, Abe cuts off Ishida's penis and scrotum with a meat cleaver and carries them around until she is finally arrested, three days later.
David R. Ellis to bring us "Humpty Dumpty". The new film by the "Final Destination 2" and "FD: Deathtrip 3D" director is about: "a half-human, half alien creature who embarks on a murderous rampage after his alien mother is abused by two rednecks in the deep South." Oh, it will also be in 3D, so there's that.
The rest of the episodes of "Harper's Island" will run on Saturdays at 9:00pm on CBS. They've all but given up on the show being a ratings success, but since the episodes were already produced they figured they should let it run out. Saturdays are typically filled with reruns for most networks anyways, so there's no real loss for them shifting to that night. Apparently the show was going to be canceled outright, but it was significant DVR ratings that saved it from the ax.
