Retro Poster: "Alice, Sweet Alice" (1976)

"Alice, Sweet Alice" is one of those films that manages to still be genuinely disturbing more than thirty years after it's release. When young Karen (Shields) is murdered on the day of her first communion, her sister Alice becomes the prime suspect. The killer, dressed in a yellow rain coat and a plastic mask, continues to terrorize the inhabitants of an apartment building, causing the audience to question if a 12 year old girl can really be capable of murder. The film was released three separate times, under three different titles.

Trailer For Tim Burton's “Alice” UPDATED!

So for the past month or so we’ve been seeing more and more images coming out for Tim Burton’s “Alice In Wonderland”. Well not we’ve got the first official teaser trailer for the film which is currently set for a March 5th, 2010 release.

The people behind "Orphan" are finally kicking the promotion train into gear, with a slew of new pics today. Seriously? A week away from release? The studio's lack of enthusiasm should tell you all you need to know about this one.

Darron Aranofsky's commitment to his thriller "Black Swan" may be pulling him away from the "Robocop" remake. That would make sense, since Natalie Portman is set to star in "Black Swan", and she's one of the hottest and most talented women alive. On the other hand, you can't even carress Robocop... he's all sharp edges and joints that pinch you if you're not careful. Seems like a no-brainer to me.

Here's a picture of Anne Hathaway holding a rat in a still for Tim Burton's "Alice". So ya, that happened.

Kate Bosworth lands female lead in "Straw Dogs" remake. She'll star alongside Alexander Skarsgard and James Marsden, in the remake of the 1971 Sam Peckinpah film starring Dustin Hoffman.

"Trick 'R Treat" DVD and Blu-ray art! I don't even own a Blu-ray player, but I might get a copy just for that cover.

In Real People News: 

Getting caught... "greeting yourself" ... is embarrassing enough (so I hear anyway). But what makes it worse? being caught by your woman and having her stab you for it. Jeeze... just trying to let off a little steam over here!

We could all learn a lesson from these gay penguins. Oh, one of them went back to the other side when he had the chance? Nevermind, turns out it's just lessonless story about gay penguins. Still...

This guy spent a lot of money on surgery so that he could "look like the devil". Somehow that turned into a vampire with two huge zits on his forehead. Might want to ask for your money back, dude.

"The Gate 3D" has secured $1.9 million and will begin shooting in Germany shortly, under the direction of Alex Winter. Winter starred in "Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure" in the 80's, and also directed the 1993 cult classic "Freaked".

Vanity Fair has a few, slightly new pics from "Alice in Wonderland", directed by Tim Burton and starring Helena Bohnam Carter, Johnny Depp and Anne Hathaway.

In Real People News: 

Naked man arrested for running into an arcade on the California/Nevada state line... says he took some LSD and thought he was "the Terminator". Awesome.

This is what happens when internet fights turn into real life fights complete with ear-biting. Just let it go people, let it go.

Gay lumberjacks protest teabaggers. Easily the best headline this week.

1665: King Charles II and his entourage flee London, a city suffering the ravages of the black plague. At this point, about 2,000 Londoners are dying weekly.

Depp says Burton will be tackling his adaptation of "Dark Shadows" immediately after they finish up "Alice". No one seems to be asking if there's even potential in a remake of the cheesy TV vampire soap. Right now I'm more interested to see how his "Alice in Wonderland" adaptation goes.

I get it, poster for the festival hit "Dead Girl", lips look like vaginas. Actually, ya, that's a pretty sweet poster.

M. Night Shyamalan now has his very own official site. It stars M. Night Shyamalan in an M. Night Shyamalan produced project, where M. Night Shyamalan plays the most important person in the world who is meant to save us all by saying profound things in really childish and oversimplified ways. Sounds awesome, no?

In Real People News: 

Naked thief snatches food from drive-thru window and runs away with his prize. If you're having a tough day, that mental image is guaranteed to make you laugh.

This is the look of a man who just stabbed someone, and is awfully happy with himself. It's also the satisfied look of a Floridian. Coincidentally, pretty similar.

Poland's UFO files have been stolen. At the link, an interview with the guy who probably should have done something about it. (Good read though for conspiracy theorists like myself)

On this day in history: 

1374: In a sudden outbreak of Dancing Mania (aka "St. John's Dance"), people in the streets of Aix-la-Chapelle experience terrible hallucinations and begin to jump and twitch uncontrollably until they collapse from exhaustion. Many of the sufferers are afflicted with frothing at the mouth, diabolical screaming, and sexual frenzy. The phenomenon lasts well into the month of July. Nowadays, ergot madness is suspected as being the ultimate cause of the disorder.
