Sweet "Final Destination 4" behind the scenes video, featuring some stuntwork being done for the race car crash that will (presumably) start the film out. FD4 will be made in 3D and be released later this year or early next.

It turns out that the wait for "My Name is Bruce", Bruce Campbell's "Three Amigos" type film about him being mistaken for a monster slayer, was all for a good cause. Apparently, the studio gave them more money to "beef" up the film, so that it can go theatrical. No word on how wide yet, but this does mean that at least some of you will get to see it in the theater so, good news all around.

Behind the scenes pictures from "Feast 2: Sloppy Seconds". And yes, they still hold the award for best upcoming title. The film will follow a few survivors of the previous film (as well as a few non-survivors, odd enough) who manage to get to a nearby town where they're tracked down by the beasts from the first film. It will star Jenny Wade, Krista Allen, Judah Friedlander, Clu Gulager, Martin Klebba, Tom Gulager, and Diane Goldner.

News on "Alice" today, the adaptation of American Mcgee's (now) old school video game, and shocker (!) it's not good. The film is at a "turnaround" after being dumped by Universal Studios. They have a "very compelling script" that is now looking for a new home, and both Marcus Nispel and Sarah Michelle Gellar are no longer involved. If there's a comparable term in the movie industry to "Vapor Ware", I think it's time to start using it in this case.

First 1-sheet poster for "Quarantine", and it looks as generic and not interesting as the movie itself. Just my opinion people, don't shoot me!

In Real People News: 

Al Quaeda's message is apparently reaching little blond British school boys. The 12 year old was apparently sending "terrorist inspired videos" to his classmates. No word on if the same videos offered his classmates tea and crumpets, but one has to assume.

Woman reports 4 children missing after 4 day crack binge. People who saw her during the binge claim that she threw them out her car window. She says that she's a "good mother" but knows she has a drug problem. I'm not even sure what to say in response to this story.

News bulletin, having sex with a picnic table is illegal. See, you really do learn something new every day. And in case you were curious (and I know you are), the link contains a pretty detailed description of exactly how you would do such a thing.

On this day in history: 

1968: Pope Paul VI declares that the bones of Apostle and first Pope, Saint Peter, were found underneath St. Peter's Basilica in Rome. The bones are now housed in Plexiglas containers near where they were found, but some of them are clearly those of domesticated animals.
