Brad Bird, the guy who directed "Iron Giant" and "Ratatouille" has gotten himself a December 19, 2014 release date for his new flick "1952". No real word on what the alien encounter type film will be about but George Clooney is attached to star so honestly who really cares what it's about. George Clooney. The guy craps ladies underwear. I have no idea what that means.
I have no idea what "Smiley" is about but I've seen the damn slasher from the flick all over the place. Well I mean not like out walking around or anything but on sites and stuff. I'm not crazy. Well the flick is finally finding its way onto DVD on February 12th. If I did see him in public I think I'd tell him to take off his silly mask and maybe we could enjoy some lunch together. I think we would split some wings or something.
A new show titled "They Came Back" looks to be coming to the mighty US sometime in the near future. The show is based on a French movie and TV series and focuses on a group of people trying to find their way home who also happened to have been dead for 7 years. FremantleMedia Enterprises has picked up the rights to the project and I would say if they change one thing about the show it's the whole french thing. They should definitely make everyone speak English.
Good news every half naked girl on twitter who calls themselves "Penny Dreadful", you're about to get a crap load more followers. Sam Mendes and John Logan, the guys behind "Skyfall" are confirmed to be creating a new show for Showtime with that name. The series will place some of the literary world's most famous monsters in Victorian London. I don't know if it would happen but how fun would it be if they put them all in one apartment together? So you know Dr. Frankenstein uses all the toothpaste and Dr. Jekyll looses his shit over it.

A convicted Illinois sex offender is under arrest again after he was found wandering the halls of a local school "looking for young boys". Here's the kicker though, it wasn't even his fault. According to him Justin Bieber is telepathically telling him to seek out his prey. Makes the spirit of Dom DeLuise telling me to eat pie all the time not seem so bad.
Necessity is the mother of invention my friends. Proof of this can be found down in Florida where you can meet a woman who was being confronted by a cop, because she had just stabbed her boyfriend for not giving up his food stamps, and decided to throw a cat at him. I like to think there was some confusion down at the station when trying to figure out what the fine for assault with a feline is.
Damon Lidelof is the fella who penned "Lost" and the upcoming movie "Cowboys & Aliens" has been handed more money than I'll ever see in my life to write a new Sci-Fi silm for the fine people at Disney. No real details yet on what the movie will be about but word is the project will extent beyond the cinema. Which could really mean anything. TV show, action figure line or maybe in a few years I'll riding in a car shaped like Lindelof's head on the new "1952" ride at Disney World. It's going to be magical.
A romp of new images from the set of "Piranha 3DD" have hit the tubes and it looks like the blood action at the local water park is in full swing. For the second film a local Lake Havasu water park has been turned into "Big Wet Waterpark" and I assume after filming wraps they either have to detox the entire area or just burn the park to the ground and call it a day. And if you're wondering, a romp is what they call a group of otters. We learned something today!
Mexican actor Diego Luna is reportedly being courted for a role in up coming Neill Blomkamp alien flick titled "Elysium". the film is the follow up to Blomkamp's 2009 epic "District 9" and has already cast Matt Damon and Jodie Foster as earthlings who face an alien onslaught. Sounds like things are going to get caliente on the set my friends! Aye que rico, me pone loca!
John Hlavin who wrote the script for "Underworld 4: New Dawn" is in talks to develop a script for a big screen adaptation of the board game of global domination "Risk". This is just the latest board game to be added to the ever growing list of adaptations and I for one can't wait to see the giant CGI pop-o-matic bubble once someone decided to make "Trouble" a movie.

A Florida priest is under arrest after he reportedly exposed himself to, groped and offered to perform sexual acts on an undercover cop. What's worse is this all happened on a local beach at 1 in the afternoon. No one should be doing those kinds of things when they're all full from lunch. You'll get cramps.
Parents in a small town in New Mexico are under arrested after people reported them for beating their 5 month old child while they were drunk at Red Lobster. I feel like I'm looking into the future and I'm surprisingly OK with it.
