Bioshock

Due to the "shadowcast" phenomenon (think Rocky horror but with Goth kids), "Repo: The Genetic Opera" director Darren Lynn bousman has launched a website to keep the mythos going. He says this is a "life long project" for him, which I hope means they'll eventually do another version of the film, only this time not so terrible.

The release of "Zombieland" has been bumped up a week. You can now check out the Woody Harrelson zombie film on October 2nd.

"28 Weeks Later" director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo is in talks to direct "Bioshock", the adaptation of the wildly popular videogame.

Todd Mcfarlane has officially started writing a new "Spawn" film. He says that it will be a standalone story, and he's shooting for an "R" rating.

The following is a "Rumble Trailer" for "The Final Destination" over at Break.com. Warning: the video does autoplay when you go there so watch those speakers at work. It's kind of a nifty little marketing thing though, so I recommend checking it out.

The buzz machine has been firing on all cylinders for the past few months over the fall release of "Bioshock 2," including shipments of records, paper dolls, and misc promotional materials to media outlets. Unfortunately, the news broke yesterday that even with such strong hype, we're going to have to wait just a bit longer to get our hands on the game, specifically the (I'm sure intentionally) vague "2010 fiscal year."

I'm actually pretty proud that it took me nearly two days to realize that "Twilight" won best movie at the MTV Movie Awards this weekend. If you also didn't know, consider yourselves lucky.

Gore Verbinski says he's pretty much off of "Bioshock", mainly because he doesn't think his schedule will allow him to shoot outside of the US for a year and a half, which will pretty much be a requirement due to the film's logistics and budget.

International trailer for "Train", the remake of "Terror Train" that it turns out isn't a remake but still has "Train" in the name. Got all that? I'm glad, because it was probably the most pointless sentence I've ever written.

Lionsgate is moving forward with a 3D remake of the 80's film "Happy Birthday To Me". The original is a fairly classic 80's slasher with a mess of an ending, that most people seem to love. I was a little peeved. Either way, it will probably make for pretty simple fair to remake.

Lord knows I've been foaming at the mouth over "Bioshock 2" for months now, and I finally have a date to mark on the calendar!

Are you ready to start counting down the days until BioShock 2 hits store shelves? You can start now! BioShock 2 will be arriving on October 30th internationally and November 3rd in North America for the Xbox 360®, PLAYSTATION® 3 system, and PC.

The only thing louder than the hype for "Bioshock 2" is the cries of those worrying about the series being "ruined" by the 2nd game. To assuage these fears, 2k has been releasing about as much information as they can without totally revealing critical moments in the game. The latest piece in this effort is a 9 minute demo which seems to be a sped up version of the game's first moments, minus the obligatory "press this button to shoot" prompts.

The original Bioshock game was applauded for sticking to its strengths as a heavily story based single player game. Even though 2K plans to stick with those strengths with Bioshock 2, it will feature extensive multiplayer gameplay. Thanks to Kotaku, there are now some vague, yet intriguing details.

Here's the trailer for "The Cell 2". So ya, that happened. The film goes direct to DVD on June 16th.

A list of the schools that will be used as external locations for the "Nightmare on Elm St." remake shoot, which will apparently be shot in Chicago. Area students over 16 are welcome to audition as extras. The film begins shooting May 5th under the direction of Samuel Bayer.

Bill Murray to have a cameo in Woody Harrelson's zomcom "Zombieland", a film which just got a lot cooler.

Here's your "bang your head off your desk" story for Monday morning. "Videodrome" is being remade at Universal as a "large-scale sci-fi thriller". Oh boy, that's up there with one of the worst sentences I've ever had to type on this site.

But wait... there's more to this story than meets the eye. Universal has also put Gore Verbinski's adaptation of "Bioshock" on hiatus because of money concerns. So let's recap. The same company that doesn't have money for the amazing original property "Bioshock", does have the money to remake a dumbed down version of "Videodrome" as some sort of big budget action/sci-fi movie. Kind of gives you the warm & fuzzies, doesn't it?

It's being reported that Robert Rodriguez is aiming to shoot "Machete", the full version of his "Grindhouse" trailer, in June. Danny Trejo to star. This should be interesting.

Just over a week ago I posted the first "Bioshock 2" game footage, and wondered aloud what sort of teases would come next. As it turns out, "tease" is not in Gamespot's vocabulary, as they've posted a video which at first look answers nearly every basic question that fans of the franchise have so far. Be warned, this video is slightly spoilery in terms of general story and gameplay, but definitely worth a look:
