Horror Headlines 7/25/08

"My Bloody Valentine: 3D" has been bumped UP from January 23rd to January 16th, 2009. The move is reportedly to avoid a head to head battle with "Underworld 3", starring "Doomsday" hottie Rhona Mitra. Not much news here I guess, as it just sounds like they're trying to find the perfect date.

This can't possibly be the poster for Paul W.S. Anderson's "Death Race" remake. It just can't. I could recreate that with Windows 95 and that shitty little "Paint" program that came with it.

Official Site for the "Wolfman" remake starring Benizio Del Toro. In related news, the film also stars Emily Blunt, and she's super hot. That is all.

Tim Burton is moving ahead with his version of "Alice in Wonderland", as he just cast Mia Wasikowska as his Alice. Her biggest project to date has been on the riveting HBO show "In Treatment", as an anorexic gymnast. Also, I suppose this means that "American McGee's Alice" won't be happening any time soon.

James Gunn, actress Shawnee Smith and acting coach John Homa will be the judges for VH1's show "Scream Queens". The winner will get a 'major role' on a Lions Gate produced horror film. That could mean a lot of different things however, so I can't necessarily say that's a real "prize".

Leonardo DiCaprio is working with Warner Bro's to bring another "Twilight Zone" movie to the big screen. In related news, this puts him up with Christian Bale on my "man crush" list.

In Real People News: 

Former Apollo Astronaut tells public that there are aliens and that NASA is covering them up. Oh, and he's 77. It would be nice if one of these guys would come out before he's in the throes of dementia. Kind of hurts the credibility a bit.

So apparently a Security IT company has release details of a really scary DNS attack method which was previously unknown to the public, and that it could cause massive internet attacks over the next few weeks. Well, it's been nice knowing you people. Keep it classy.

Good news, The Large Haldron Collider is almost ready to do it's job. And by "job", I mean blast particles together in order to gain insight to what happened moments after the "big bang" created the universe. Oh, and there may or may not be a teeny chance it could create a tiny black hole that could potentially swallow the earth. Scientists assure us that the chances of that happening are minute. Oh, I feel better then (?)

On this day in history: 

1999: Woodstock '99 festival ends in looting and rioting, leaving 12 trailers burned, towers toppled, and several women raped during the course of the show. About 500 state troopers were needed to quell the mass uprising of peace and love, apparently triggered by overpriced vendors and commercialization.
