Ya know in this day and age when things are so final it's nice to see Danny Boyle keeping things loose when it comes to the question of if "28 Months Later" will happen. According to Boyle there's a 40/60 chance that the film will happen. He also said that he doesn't like zombie movies. He also kind of sounds like a prick. So that's all confirmed now.

The much discussed anthology flick "The ABC's of Death" will finally find its way onto DVD and Blu-Ray on May 21st. For those of you who are jerks and didn't listen to our podcast on the film, it's 26 different shorts each showing one special way to die for every letter in the alphabet. I have no idea why you wouldn't want to listen to the podcast though. Think of my hilarious comments but in sound form. I'm almost jealous that you actually get to hear me and I just have to be me.

The post for Bobcat Goldthwait upcoming found footage flick "Willow Creek" has hit the nets and it looks pretty sweet. It's got all kind of bigfoot action and at first I was disapointed to find out that it has nothing to do with the monster truck but then I got over it. Then I ate some graham crackers.

XLrator Media has picked up the U.S. distribution rights to "The Banshee Chapter", a new 3D flick from first time writer/director Blair Erickson. The film follows a young journalist searching for her friend who has been experimenting with mind-altering drugs in a secret government test. The story is supposedly based on real witness testimonies and is 100% bullcrap and shouldn't be trusted. I don't want to believe.

In Real People News: 

I've never trusted male flight attendants. I don't care what you say. This one 39 year old one that has been arrested for molesting a sleeping passenger just proves my point. I also don't care for older flight attendants now that I think of it. So this is kind of just two birds with one stone.

One time I was on a bus stuck in traffic outside the New York Port Authority when the driver finally snapped and kicked us all out on the entry ramp. That's not even a joke. But this guy in Nebraska now hold my title for most frightening nut bag bus mover person now that he was caught on camera beating the hell out of a passenger before dragging him off the bus. Just slightly though.

A trailer for Danny Boyle's "Frankenstein" has made its way online and from the name I'm guessing it a retelling of the classic story but from the video I have no clue what the hell is going on. I would think you can't call a movie "Frankenstein" and then have it be about to star crossed lovers who find each other in the middle of an amusement park but what the hell do I know.

A new trailer for "Source Code", which I had no idea about but Duncan Jones made it and he made "Moon" so now I'm excited, has hit the tubes and it's your civic duty to watch it. I'm not even sure how to explain it because the description sounds fake but I think there's something about Jake Gyllenhaal trying to stop a bomb from going off, or a web site from crashing, probably the first one though.

You like the Ha-Ha yes? Good, if you said no I was going to ask you to get the hell of my lawn. But since you do here's the new trailer for "Paul" which stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost as a couple of comic book geeks who come across an alien during a road trip. I swear you better like the Ha-Ha.

Flesh eating acid, a killer High School Mascot and a bunch of kids stuck in a school? Sign me up folks! Here's the trailer for the new flick from "Gutterballs" director Ryan Nicholson titled "Famine". Just so we're clear I don't want those things to happen to me, I just want to see a movie with it. Don't show up to my house dressed as a Spartan looking to murder me or anything.

In Real People News: 

An Oklahoma man who apparently thinks highly of himself was recently arrested while trying to sneak a chainsaw out of store by shoving it down his pants. Those things can't just turn on can they? I'm not very manly but I assume they can't but man that would be awesome if it had.

Stealing from someone and posting a picture of yourself holding the cash you stole on facebook is stupid. Posting that photo on the person's facebook page that you stole it from is crazy stupid. Or really ballsy. Mostly stupid because you'll get arrested for it for sure. But still, they must be the size of cantaloupes to pull that kind of crap.

Danny Boyle is supposedly being courted to direct a new werewolf flick set int LA called "Sharp Teeth". I assume this is because werewolves have teeth that are sharp and they will present them in a menacing fashion in the movie. That's the best I got folks, the Superbowl was last night, it's a slow day.

The producers who brought you "Twilight" have already picked up a new book trilogy called "Legend". The series will follow a young bugger called Day and his happenings as the country's most wanted criminal. It will also be a series of really awful films. Get excited.

All the world is giddy over the trailer for Steven Spielberg and JJ Abrams's "Super 8" that showed last night at the Super Bowl despite that fact that I have no idea what the hell is going on in it. I think there might be aliens who hate trains or cameras or I have no freakin clue. I can't wait for this one.

A new poster and synopsis for Paul Schrader's "The Jesuit" is now online and I have to admit I was way more excited about this one when I thought this was made by the guy who leads David Letterman's band. It does however feature Willem Dafoe, Paz Vega, Michelle Rodriguez and child kidnapping. So that's something to get excited about.

In Real People News: 

Here's a sad story about a 13 year old girl who had to call the cops after her mother went on a four day bender. This will be even sadder when I look back on it when my child is 13 and has to do the same for me. History, it's stupid.

Here's a fun one, a 35 year old man in California was fatally cut by a cock when the illegal cock fight he was attending was busted by cops. Apparently roosters have sharp nasty little daggers shooting out the back of their feet and they can really mess you up if you get stabbed with them. Good to know!

Despite every fiber in my tiny brain telling me otherwise "Sucker Punch" is in no way a Skin-emax flick. Yes it is about a bunch of half naked women trapped in a prison but I guess that's where the similarities end. Anyway there's a new giant poster for it out and it's full of everything I said and more. I'm so confused.

"Ghost Adventures" sounds like possibly the worst show ever imagined but this Friday's might not be so awful. Kane Hodder, R.A. Mihailoff and Rick McCallum all join the team this week as they hunt for ghosts or look for bigfoot or some crap. I have no clue but there's a trailer for the episode you should watch it and get back to me.

Neve Campbell, don't think making out with Denise Richards could make up for all those Scream movies... or the trailer for the new indie flick "The Glass Man" which focuses on a couple who's all happy and stuff and then isn't for some reason. That's all I really got out of the trailer.

Danny Boyle kind of looks like the asshole guy from "Happy Gilmore" doesn't he? That has nothing to do with the fact that he recently confirmed he's got a "good idea" for "28 Months Later" but I still think it's important to point out. You're welcome.

In Real People News: 

There's nothing more exciting than hitting the open road and letting the wind blow in your hair. And what better way to enjoy such a feeling than cruising the highway in your electric wheelchair like this guy in Connecticut.

In what I'm guessing is a glimpse into my future here's a story about a couple who couldn't make it to the hospital fast enough so they decided to give birth to their child on the side of the Garden State Parkway in new Jersey. Hits a little too close to home really.
