my bloody valentine 3d

Horror Headlines: April 20th, 2009

Rumor has it that FOX Atomic, Fox's genre wing responsible for pictures such as "The Hills Have Eyes 2", "28 Weeks Later" and "Turistas", will be shut down next week. No word on how this may affect "Jennifer's Body", Diablo Cody's new film which was produced under the banner.

"True Blood" Season 2 teaser poster. And here I am continuing to report on it despite our readers telling me they're not interested. Yes, I am dense. It's also a slow news day, so bear with me.

Eli Roth's out talking more about "Thanksgiving" after the announcement last week that he would like to piggyback it onto a bigger budget film of his. This time he says he's writing it with his longtime friend Jeff Rendell, who will also play "The Pilgrim".

According to Patrick Lussier, there will be no "My Bloody Valentine 3D" sequel. That comes from Lions Gate, who were surprised at the film's BO success but not too jazzed about greenlighting a second go-round. The film is plenty open-ended for them to have done one, but apparently they're calling it a day with this potential franchise. "MBV3D" hits DVD and Blu-ray May 19th.

In Real People News: 

9-year-old kid dies in Brooklyn after going up to the top of his roof with a plastic parachute, and taking a swan-dive off of it. His parents said he was imitating Jeff Hardy of the WWE, and that it was a "game he played all the time".

Here's a new one, female teacher gets fired for taking 4 students to an all male strip club. You always hear about creepy guy teachers doing stuff like this, it's nice to see the women getting in on the "questionable decision" game. Now that's equality!

On this day in history: 

1979: President Jimmy Carter is attacked by a Killer Swamp Rabbit, while on vacation in Plains GA. The rabbit swam menacingly towards him, and he had to repel the ferocious creature with a paddle. There were no injuries. That's what happens when you elect a President from the South, folks.

Mila Jovovich to star in "Year Zero", which is about a "a young woman attempting to clear her father's name in a string of gruesome murders at an Alaskan oil refinery.

The "My Bloody Valentine 3D" DVD will come in both 2D and 3D versions. The 3D version will also contain 4 pairs of "red/blue" 3D glasses, since "RealD" is not a medium available for home theaters yet. How will the red/blue results translate to DVD? You'll find out May 19th when this disc lands.

Rebecca Romijn (formerly Romijn-Stamos) has been tapped as the third lead in ABC's "Eastwick", their television adaptation of "The Witches of Eastwick". She'll play "Roxie", a "bohemian and sharp-tongued single mother. Sounds sassy!

Nicholas Cage isn't ready to sign on to "Ghost Rider 2" yet because as he puts it, the script needs "some tweaking". No word on if his input is what made the last film so "awesome", so I really have no idea how to interpret this.

Full Moon president Charles Band wants to remake his "classic" film "Puppetmaster", and do it in 3D. I really have no words for this story.

Of course Lesbian vampires have super long tongues. Kind of makes sense, no?

In Real People News: 

A muslim police officer in the UK is suing after his co-workers repeatedly referred to him as a "fucking Paki" because of his beard. Based on the picture at the link, I would have guessed "character from the board game Guess Who", but that's just me (go ahead and click it, you know you can't resist)

A monkey in a zoo has proved that his species is capable of complex planning, because of his hoarding of rocks in order to throw at passers by later. He was rewarded by castration. Maybe it's just me, but that doesn't seem like a good reward.

Apparently a pair of parents in Chicago named their child Marijuana Pepsi Jackson in 1973. These days she goes by "Marijuana Sawyer", since clearly "Pepsi" was the most eye-opening part of that name.

On this day in history: 

1974: Second Lt. Hiroo Onoda of the Imperial Japanese Army surrenders to Philippine authorities. He believed World War II was still underway and continued a 30 year guerrilla battle with other islanders. His final capitulation came when his senior officer, Maj. Taniguchi, ordered his surrender. Upon return to the Japanese homeland, Onoda was treated as a hero, but had difficulty coping with his "postwar" life.
