Famed "Old Boy" director Park Chan-Wook is set to make his English language debut with "Stoker", and the film now has a locked in release date of March 1st, 2013.

The full trailer is below, complete with a joke about how "Stoker" sounds like "Stroker". Sick burn, high school guy. Also, Nichole Kidman's creepy face...

Dermot Mulroney, of Dermot Mulroney fame, is the latest name to be attached to Chan-wook Park's new English language film "Stoker". The movie focuses on a young girl who is mourning the loss of her father and has to deal with a mysterious uncle. Mulroney will play the father. So he may only be in the movie for 10 minutes. Enjoy him while you can.

"The Darkest Hour" is a new film which follows 5 students trapped in Russia during an alien invasion, with sexy results. Alright I don't know about the sexy results part but I do know it's release date has already been pushed. Now before you go getting all worried I should point out that it's only been pushed two days to December 25th, presumably so it doesn't have to face off against "The Adventures of Tintin". So if it sucks they're not messing with Jesus's birthday. Bold move, Hollywood.

Watching porn online is nice and all but there's something really classy about putting in a DVD and watching it on a TV in all it's glory. I assume the same can be said about the web series "Mortal Kombat Legacy" as it will be coming to DVD and Blu-Ray on November 9th. Both versions are full of extra goodness and if you order it online you'll only have to put your pants on when you go get the mail. Or don't. I don't know what kind of agreement you have with your neighbors.

Ridley Scott and his brother Tony have both been confirmed by Activision to be creating exclusive content for their new online juggernaut "Call of Duty: Elite". Details of what they'll be coming up with aren't available yet but if I was a betting man I'd say some sort of storyline. I can't see either of them sitting down and coding or anything. But then again I don't know what kind of hobbies they have. I don't like to assume.

If you're a women and you want to record yourself having sex with six men then by the power invested in me you deserve to do that. But when you start forcing your 6 year old daughter to hold the camera that's when you get on the express train to hell. You're telling me you found 6 guys to be on camera and you couldn't find one more to play director? Just sounds like laziness to me.

And here's a story about a man who accidentally shot his penis off with his girlfriend's pink gun. Because losing your junk isn't embarrassing enough, you need to do it with a pink pea shooter.

If you're a fan of Platinum Dunes remakes then prepare to get pumped! The gang expects to have a script ready for a remake of the childhood classic "Monster Squad" sometime this week. For those of you who aren't fans though I'd like to invite you over to my apartment for a delightful buffet style lunch this afternoon.

Chan-wook Park's first English language film "Stoker" now has a leading lady with Mia Wasikowska landing the role of a girl who has to deal with a strange uncle who shows up after her fathers passing. Unfortunately Wasikowska hasn't really appeared in any really ridiculous films so I'm drawing a blank on sarcastic comments. Sorry folks.

NBC has picked up the pilot for "Grimm", a cop drama that takes place in a world where characters based on the Brothers Grimm's stories are real. The show will be produced by some of the same folks that brought you "Angel" and "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" which I will not hold against it because it actually sounds like a cool idea.

How have we gone this long without another Gingerdead Man movie? Hell if I know but after seeing the trailer for "Gingerdead Man 3: Saturday Night Cleaver", yes it's got a disco theme, I feel like a giant hole in my heart that I didn't even know was there has been filled. That and I feel kind of gassy, but mostly the hole filled thing.

In Real People News: 

Hanging out at parks to watch women run because you like to see things "jiggle" is creepy yes but not illegal, yet. What is illegal though is going one step further and pretending to trip so you can shove your face in woman's asses. Honestly this is a complete surprise and you'll never prove I... I mean he didn't really trip.

I think most of us got to skip school once or twice in our lives to go do something fun with out parents. Some of us went to a ballgame, others took a day trip to the city and two lucky young tikes in Georgia robbed a bank with their mother. We all have different ways of bonding with our families.

"Prison Break" star Wentworth Miller has a secret up his sleeve; he's been writing horror scripts on the sly! Using the nom de plume Ted Foulke, Miller is now shopping his scripts for "Stoker" and its prequel, "Uncle Charly". Both films have Fox Searchlight as well as Jodie Foster interested.

Behind the scenes footage of "Scream IV" is starting to arrive online! Though the pictures don't show much as far as details, we can at least deduce that yes, this is actually happening.

Sam Raimi is going to further test his comic adaptation skillz by signing on to direct Radical Comics "Earp", a futuristic tale of the O.K. Corral gunfight.

In Real People News: 

Has former VP Dick Cheney become a member of the undead? If you were to check his pulse after his new ventricular assist devices were installed on his heart this week, you might thing so! Do to the pumps creating a constant flow of blood, the blood flow becomes a constant stream as opposed to a systolic beat. Zombie Cheney says "Ooooooil...."

An NYC paramedic was accused last year of ignoring a dying pregnant woman last year because he was on his coffee break. This week he learns that karma is a bitch when he was gunned down in front of a night club. At least he has time for an extra cup of coffee on his extended break.

On this day in history: 

1972 - In Milwaukee, George Carlin is arrested for obscenity and disorderly conduct for performing his "Seven Dirty Words" routine in front of a group of wheelchair-bound children. He is released after posting $150 bail.
