Will Smith is producing the film about a kid named Dre that loves to skatebaord and play video games. He is forced to move to China when his mother has to relocate to China due to her job. Dre obviously has a hard time fitting in with everyone, because he is not from China. So like all kids that don’t fit in with their new surroundings he gets picked on and beat up by the students of Li Quan Ha’s Fighting dragon school of Kung-Fu. Mr. Han is the maintenance man who gets a look at Dre’s black eye, he then porceeds to teach him both kung-fu, and the Chinese language, so he can fight back! I’m sure it will end in some kind of tournament without the classic crane.

Aiight, cuzzo. Here is a voice message of Sylvester Stallone revealing the plot of Rambo 5: The Savage Hunt and it sounds pretty bizarre. As you may know, the previous Rambo films involved Rambo killing a lot of people in jungle settings but it sounds like this one will go in a totally different direction. Listen to it here, Stallone Talks About Rambo 5. Tell me what you think and stay up for more buzz.
Yo, cuzzo. Here is Peter Rallis' special review show where he reviews 9 of the summer's biggest movies in 12 minutes. He does GI Joe, District 9, Inglourious Basterds, The Goods, Halloween 2, Final Destination, 9, Sorority Row, The Gamer.
I reviewed a few of these already but I haven't been able to see them all and I thought you guys deserved to see some reviews on them. In the future, I'll try to get to the movies more to give you the reviews myself, but for now check out what Peter Rallis has to say.
We are completely on the same page about GI Joe. The visuals and dialogue were pretty bad. We disagree on District 9. The documentary style was a good touch and the deaths in Final Destination, aside from the one with the bus, were pretty good. Peep his reviews and if you like this video, check out his Youtube account, RallsP Youtube.
It centers around a now 18 year old Andy, going off to college. After deciding to take just one of his childhood toys with him, Woody, and emptying the rest of his toys into a black bin bag for storage in the attic. All the toys are panicked – especially Woody, who’s worried for his friends. When Andy is distracted by his little sister and leaves the garbage bag on the landing instead of upstairs in the attic, his mother takes it out to the curb – and a frantic Woody has to save his friends from a rapidly approaching bin lorry.
This should prove to be another classic film by Pixar so peep the poster and check out the film when it comes out June 18th 2010. The trailer they showed at D23 should be online soon so look for that. Also check out Toy Story 1 and 2 in 3D on October 2nd, 2009. Stay up for more buzz.

They have just announced that Pirates of the Caribbean 4 will be released in 2011. Johnny Depp, recently, made an appearance at Disney's D23 Convention as Jack Sparrow and premiered the official title and logo for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Strangers Tides.
Disney has also confirmed that The Beatles' Yellow Submarine will be remade by Robert Zemekis in 3D. I'm a fan of the original Yellow Submarine so I'm all for this remake. It will be shot in 3D using motion capture technology and the film will include 16 licensed Beatles songs.
And finally Disney has announced that they are developing a new Muppets movie called the Cheapest Muppet Movie Ever Made. It is being written by Jason Segal who wrote and starred in Forgetting Sarah Marshall. I am soooo excited for this! Nostalgia is in the air. I'm definitely going to see this when it comes out. Its about time they made a comeback.
It was also announced at D23 that Guillermo Del Toro is launching a animation label that will release Disney scary movies called Disney Double Dare You.This sounds pretty cool. Their first movie will be called Trollhunters. Stay up for updates on that and more buzz.

The Marvel Civil War storyline is phenomenal. I'm surprised they haven't created a movie of some kind based on it. Hopefully they'll make somethinf for it in the near future but for now we'll just have to settle for this game. Peep the trailer courtesy of Geek Tyrant and cop the game when it comes out September 15th, 2009. Stay up.

They are in and out like clockwork, leaving no evidence behind and laying low in between heists. But when they attempt to pull off one last job with more money at stake than ever before, the crew may find their plans interrupted by a hardened detective who is hell-bent on solving the case. Its like a mix between Heat and Set It Off.
Check out the trailer and tell me what you think. Stay up.
The show centers around an elite squadron, who must defend Saturn’s moon Titan. The young brash pilots spaceships combine to form the giant robot Titan Maximum. Its a comedic take on classic robot cartoons like Voltron.

Now, the fate of humanity rests in the hands of
a team of dysfunctional misfits commanding a rust bucket robot.

This poster looks pretty epic and I'm really excited to see this although it does seem like a ploy to make money off of his death.

Stay up.

Set in the 1980's, this film centers around Sam, a pretty college sophomore who is so desperate to earn some cash for a deposit on an apartment that she accepts a babysitting job even after she finds out there is no baby. Mr. and Mrs. Ulman are the older couple who lure Sam out to their creeky Victorian mansion deep in the woods, just in time for a total lunar eclipse. Megan is Sam’s best friend, who gives her a ride out to the house, and reluctantly leaves her there despite suspecting that something is amiss. Victor at first seems like just a creepy guy lurking around the house, but quickly makes it clear that Sam will end this night in a bloody fight for her life.
This looks really good so peep the trailer and check out this film when it comes out October 30th 2009. Stay up.

@redpuma “Do you think Disney will kill the amazingness of Marvel?”
They didn’t kill the amazingness of @MiramaxFilms back in the day.
Fantasio “Are you the owner of the rights of your movies?”

@LAtheDJ “If you could make a sequel to any other movie (not yours) what would it be?”
GROSSE POINTE BLANK.

You, you, you – it’s ALWAYS about you, isn’t it Cody? #Jennifer’sBody That being said, I used to. ZAMMAP broke me of that nasty habit. Now I don’t care. If I dig it, I’m all good. All I can do is make’em
@valbacca “how you feel about walmart cutting out make a porno from zack & miri?”
Bummer, but it didn’t change the flick at all.

It’s a strange… stigma, considering homevideo is, largely, how movies are seen. But all that work and no theatrical? Wouldn’t feel right
@Zippio “Any chance there will be another Clerks movie??”
MAYBE when we’re all in our mid-40’s. CLERKS = 20’s. CLERKS II = 30’s.
@EckhardSperling “What is your favorite TV-Show?”
Of all-time? Probably ROSEANNE or recent BATTLESTAR GALACTICA. Currently? Not sure.
@exlander “Will there ever be a Dogma Extended Edition, with the Hell scene?”

Tried to get him to codirect CLERKS. Talked RANGER DANGER, too

Along with his superhuman strength and durability, he has the ability to survive unaided in space, a healing factor that heals ludicrous amounts of damage, an equally ludicrous sense of smell which allows him to track objects between solar systems, and the ability to regrow an entire new Lobo from each drop of his own spilled blood.
Lobo has had several encounters with the likes of Superman, Batman, Aquaman, Guy Gardner and Wolverine to name a few.
Guy Ritchie has recently announced that he will be directing a Lobo movie so look forward to seeing this anti-hero's big screen debut sometime in the near future. Stay up.
He will join Bradley Cooper (The Hangover), who plays Lt. Templeton ‘Faceman’ Peck and Liam Neeson (Taken) who plays Col. John ‘Hannibal’ Smith. Right now, I'm reserving judgement on this project until I see some footage. All I know is, professional wrestlers/fighters have the tendency to be horrible actors (aside from The Rock and maybe Hulk Hogan). But I must say, I'm pretty interested in seeing a fresh outlook on the A-Team franchise. Tell me what you guys think.
In other news, our latest poll shows that District 9 was the best movie of the summer and I agree. Although there were a few other stand out movies this summer, District 9 had it all, from action and tough effects to a captivating plot and good character development so it deserves to be 'Best Movie of the Summer.' And be sure to vote on the next SH Head photo. That's about it for now but stay up.
Yo, cuz. Here are some more exclusive set photos from The Green Hornet starring Seth Rogen. You actually get a look at the movie's main villain Kato and Rogen in character. I can't really judge if this is going to be good or not yet, but because Rogen is involved, I'm staying optimistic. Check 'em out courtesy of Superhero Hype and tell me what you think. Stay up.
Anyway, the deaths were over the top but entertaining. I mean, the ways these people died were outta control. And the suspense was amazing. I was literally on the edge of my seat, waiting to see how these people were going to die. And the 3D took the deaths over the top! The 3D effects started out a little shaky in the beginning but they gradually hit their marks as the movie progressed. I found myself cringing more than once (and I never cringe!) so this movie succeeded in what it set out to do.
Overall, it was an entertaining movie going experience. It wasn't the movie of the summer but simply a teen thriller that did its job- keep me amused for an hour and a half. It was way better than Final Destination 3 but not as good as the first two movies. I think the series should definitely end here on a somewhat good note before people start to really resent them. I don't recommend this movie for the weak of heart but if you're a fan of bloody and gory films, check out FD3D and stay up.

Yo, cuzzo. Here are some set photos from the set of The Green Hornet with Seth Rogen and Cameron Diaz. Right about now, it seems like Seth Rogen can do no wrong so I'm pretty excited for this film. Check out the photos courtesy of Super Hero Hype and stay up for more buzz.

Yo, cuzzo. Here are some movies in production right now. Click on 'em for more info. The tough ones are highlighted:
It basically follows the life of an Orbital Drop Shock Trooper, the elite type of soldiers that star in ODST. It's a very seamless blend of live action with CGI. Peep the trailer and cop Halo 3:ODST when it comes out September 22nd, 2009. Stay up.
Its centers around two crewmen who awaken from hyper-sleep aboard a spacecraft. None of their equipment is working, and their memories are incomplete. As they try to piece things together, they discover they are not alone, and the ship’s new inhabitants – tribal warriors carrying crudely made weapons – are moving among them, intent on killing all aboard.
This clip actually gives you a look at the monsters and they look sick. Peep the trailer and tell me what you think.
I haven't played the first Assassin's Creed but I have been meaning to. I really have to get on top of that after seeing this trailer. What do you guys think? Peep it and cop the game. Stay up.

He mainly does projects of Michael Jordan and the '96 Chicago Bulls. He even designed the Jordan NBA 2K9 game cover on the right in the G.O.A.T section. He's a beast! Once I get my degree, I hope I'm as talented as he is. Here are a few of his videos. Tell me what you think. Subscribe to him on Youtube and check out his website.

Its based on the true story of Confucius, a Chinese thinker and social philosopher, whose teachings and philosophy have deeply influenced Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Taiwanese and Vietnamese thought and life. Confucius’ thoughts have been developed into a system of philosophy known as Confucianism.
Check out the trailer and peep the movie when it hits theatres in the US on November 16th, 2009. Thats about it but stay up.
The film, written and produced by George Lucas, follows a motley crew of space travelers, led by Jackson as Captain Eo, who are captured by the oppressive leaders of a remote planet and sentenced to a century of torture. Captain Eo responds with a demonstration of the power of rock music, staging an impromptu concert that revitalizes the barren planet and transforms the evil aliens into beautiful, peace-loving humanoids.
I haven't had the chance to experience the Captain Eo attraction but I've seen the movie and I absolutely loved it. Check out the trailer below. If you haven't seen this 17 minute movie, peep it and also check out the making of it. It demonstrates Michael's creativity and passion to the fullest and I'm glad they're bringing it back in memory of the King of Pop. Good looks Disney. Stay up.
Wednesday, September 2, 2009
The only thing that I'm really skeptical about is the fact that Warner Bros. is going for a PG-13 rating for this film. It worked for The Dark Knight but I don't think it'll go too well for this character. What do you guys think?
The script has already been written by Don Payne, Joel Silver and Akiva Goldsman so all that remains is the casting. Who will play Lobo? Stay up for more Lobo movie updates.
