jennifer's body

After a little unscheduled break, the Box Office Special is back. And after a messy streak of flops, horror looks to be back too, with "Zombieland" flying out of the gates with a number one finish in its opening weekend. Let's catch up with a handy little chart:

This week we give Jennifer's body a once over, and decide if she's worth your time.

To me “Jennifer’s Body” pretty much has one thing going for it, it’s got Megan Fox running around in skimpy outfits. Alright two, that Amanda Seyfried isn’t too shabby either. Perhaps I’m being a little bit of what the ladies would call a “pig” but after watching a clip from the film that was recently released I don’t think I’m too far off.

What you get is pretty much what you’d expect. Megan Fox prancing around and some little Green Day look alike getting all flustered. No blood, no gore and no fun. My expectations for the rest of the film aren’t very high.

In case you weren't already hot and bothered by all of the promotion surrounding the upcoming Megan Fox vehicle "Jennifer's Body," behold the Spanish version of the film's theatrical poster. Regardless of how spectacular you think the picture's going to be, you've got to hand it to the marketing team's alluring campaign. They know why you're going to watch, and they're not above exploiting that fact. Way to go!

"Jennifer's Body" opens on September 18th.

Anne Rice loves to write about Lestat as if he's a real life person... oh, and she would also love it if Robert Downey Jr. signed onto the role. Both of those are things I learned from a recent posting to her website regarding the casting rumors that came out late last week.

Overture films is pushing their sci-fi film "Pandorum" ahead a week to make way for "Jennifer's Body". This puts the film at a September 25th release date, up against (for now) the remake of "The Crazies".

Myspace has the first official clip from "The Final Destination". Ya, this is going to be terrible, and probably a little awesome too, but mostly terrible.

Legendary horror writer Shirley Jackson's "We Have Always Lived in this Castle" has been picked up for an adaptation by Michael Douglas' production company.

You can’t have a film with just a trailer these days. Nope you need all kinds of viral shit that will get splatter all over the youtubes and your facebooks so that you live in constant fear that everything you read is actually just some clever advertisement for the next Harrison Ford film. The upcoming Diablo Cody film “Jennifer’s Body” is no different, but it’s viral video does have Megan Fox... And she says “fuck" in it. Which is kind of hot.

EW interviewed the main "Jennifer's Body" folks at
SDCC 09 in this video, including director Karyn Kusama, writer Diablo Cody, producer Jason Reitman, and star Megan Fox. A warning: Megan Fox dishes out the movie's plot (up until people start dying), so if you want to go into the movie cold, turn off the sound until 1:10 of course be warned that if you do that you'll miss the dirty talk!

I'm not going to lie, I thought the trailer for "Jennifer's Body" looked terrible... but count me among the many out there who will pretty much watch anything that Megan Fox is in, so needless to say I love this poster. Release date, September 12th, 2009.
