So, admittedly, the teaser trailer for "Terminator Salvation" does look pretty sweet. Also, casting Christian Bale really gives this film a heck of a better chance of being good. That said, I still can't ignore the whole "directed by McG" thing, so consider my feelings on this project to be "cautiously interested".
"The Mummy: Tomb of Brendan Frasier's Career" has been approved by the Chinese government to play there after a handful of small cuts were requested. Well THANK GOD for that, I was worried there for a second. And so begins our covert plan to take down the Chinese government with awful action movies.
I hesitate to do this, for fear of site reader Tanya's safety, but FOX is holding a fan celebration at the premiere of "X-Files 2: I Want to Believe", on July 23rd at Grauman's Chinese Theatre. If you do attend, don't forget your trample proof suit. Those X-Philes are a pretty dedicated bunch.
"Resident Evil: Degeneration" official site launched. Degeneration, as you may remember, is a fully CGI film from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. The film will go direct to video at some point. Right now the site sports a production blog, trailer, and a few other things.
Actor and sort of comedian Andy Dick was arrested yesterday, and took one of the greatest mugshots ever. The charges? Well he did have some drugs on him, and groping a 17 year old girl probably didn't help his case either... all outside of a Buffalo Wild Wings. That's really depressing, even for Andy Dick.
Man stabs teen to death, cuts head off, and uses it as both a puppet and a bowling ball. Wow, and this didn't even happen in Florida.
Define irony. A gene that has adapted to make African people more resistant to Malaria, makes them more susceptible to AIDS. Well now, that's a hell of a choice, isn't it?
1918: With counter-revolutionary forces advancing steadily on the city, the Bolsheviks holding captive Czar Nicholas II invite him and his family into the basement for a portrait. The Romanovs and their servants, expecting a photography session, wind up on the business end of a firing squad. Their bodies are dragged outside and buried in an unmarked mass grave.
