"Jurassic Park 4" has been pushed to "a later date" according to Universal, who declined to elaborate on exactly what that means. This gives me more time to watch the sequels, of which I have seen zero. I have seen "Carnosaur" though, which isn't canon but I think counts anyway.
The guys who brought you the Walking Dead game last year that was actually good, Telltale Games, are working on a game based on a werewolf comic book adaptation next. Here's hoping I don't have to make the choice of whether or not I have enough food to feed the small children in my care. That pretty much put me off that game for good. It was too real man, too real...
I haven't taken an informal poll on this, but am I the only person that loved "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter"? Either way, Dominic Cooper, who played a smooth talking vampire friend to Honest Abe in that film has signed on to another vampire film, Universal's "Dracula". You know, the one that isn't actually about Dracula, instead focusing on the Vlad the Impaler mythos. Either way, I hope there's an axe with silver melted onto it. (does anyone even get that reference??)
Summer movie season is here in all it's popcorn filled glory. Though as fun and indulgent as this time of year is for film fans, it can often leave horror fans wanting. Yet a strong set of films is on the horizon that should keep genre fans relatively happy throughout their summer break. So without further ado here are the 9 Most Anticipated Summer Genre Films.
Eric Bana is the newest name being tossed around to play the bearded one in the big screen adaptation of "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter". Much to my surprise Eric Bana is not the guy who played Superman in the 90's on that show with the girl form "Desperate Housewives". Apparently that was Dean Cain. Who knew.
Here's a movie called "Limitless" where Bradley Cooper takes a super drug that allows him to use 100% of his brain. He of course uses this power to sleep with tons of women which I am pretty sure is something the current Bradley Cooper can do without even having to use 10% of his brain. Thanks Hollywood, maybe next you can come up with a movie about how I'll never be skinny again.
"I Saw the Devil" and all I got was this lousy t-shirt! I'm 99% sure I've used that joke before but it doesn't matter, this serial killer flick from the far east will hit limited theaters and VOD on March 4th. Feel free to tell me if the far east comment was racist, I don't think so but I've been wrong before.
"From Disk Till Dawn" and "Amityville Horror", two films which I was pretty sure already had sequels, are slated to see theatrical followups sometime in the near future. This is all according to a press release from The Weinstein Company and I didn't get it so who knows how trustworthy it is. Maybe they lost my gmail account though. Call me, guys!

It's always sad when you hear about a kid's Christmas presents being stolen. Especially when it turns out it's their mother stole the presents to trade for crack. Although it's heartwarming when a mother gets her crack, so the two sort of negate each other.
I don't know what it is about women but the moment a fight breaks out they shoot right for the nipples. Like this woman who ripped off her daughter-in-law's nipple after she got drunk and started a fight. Happens all the time.
And let the avalanche of crap begin. "FDR: American Badass" is a new film that will follow Franklin D. Roosevelt, written as a werewolf hunter who fights the hell spawn in his customized wheelchair. I assume there will be other president fighting evil films shortly after. I'd like to officially toss out "Martin Van Buren: Chupacabra Exterminator" as an idea.
If you love "Resident Evil" films but hate looking at Milla Jovovich's mom hips you're in luck. "Resident Evil: Damnation" is a full on CGI sequel to "Resident Evil: Degeneration" and it's got a super new trailer for you to view. Computers > People. That's math, you can look it up.
Tim Burton is aiming his sights on his next production as he makes plans to team with Russian Timur Bekmambetov for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Based on best selling author Seth Grahame-Smith's novel, in the same vein as his hit "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies". Both film-makers will be taking on producer duties as a director has not yet been listed.
Warner Brothers has announced their plans to bring the classic "Space Invaders" to the big screen. This joins the long list of other classic arcade games that will be mentioned as in the works for big screen treatment and never heard from again!
Stefan Ruzowitzky, Austrian director of the Oscar winning "The Counterfeiters" is in talks to direct the period piece "The Last Voyage of the Demeter" which has been written for nearly five years now. Concentrating on the over seas voyage of Dracula as he fled Transylvania, this could be something fun on the horizon.

PETA has decided that the Berlin Zoo will be its next target as they urge the facility to have Knut the Polar Bear castrated. Not just an idle request, they are trying to prevent Mr. Knut from having incestual sex with his partner Giovanna who has the same grandpa polar bear as Knut.
