One of Spider-Man’s biggest enemies, Venom from Spider-Man 3 may be about to get its own solo movie. Sony has hired writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick to start writing a film based soley on the “Venom” character. “Venom” is an evil version of Spider-Man created by the symbiosis of an alien life form and a human to host it.

There’s currently no known plot available or any information on who may star in the film,but it does sound interesting. In Spider-Man 3, “Venom” had all the powers of Spider-Man with a few added editions of big freakin alligator looking teeth and a slithering tongue.More like Spider-Gator or something. He also appeared to be physically bigger and stronger than Spider-Man. It was pretty freaky. Read more »

News Host Bashes Eminem’s ‘We Made You’ Music Video

Mr. Bill O’Reilly who is a news host for Fox News is apparently disgusted with Eminem’s new music video, “We Made You”. He says that Eminem is vile,and that few Americans take him seriously which I think just may be the whole point. It’s just entertainment, it’s not supposed to be taken seriously. Anyways, he goes on to state that Eminem represents the lowest form of entertainment,and is just a media hound.

O’Reilly was really upset at the lyrics that involved Sarah Palin, the former Republican vice presidential candidate, and called them misogynist, whatever that means. Apparently it’s something bad I guess. He knocked the lyrics that stated Read more »

Fox News Reviewer Fired Over ‘Wolverine’ Movie Leak

When someone from the inside leaked a workprint of the new “Wolverine : Origins” movie a couple of weeks ago, most movie review sites refused to watch it. But Fox News reviewer, Roger Friedman not only watched the film,but also took it a step further and reviewed it. What makes it worse is the movie wasn’t even a complete piece,and had a lot of special effects missing from it.

Some of my sources say that it was missing like several million dollars worth of reshoots that would smooth out the film, and the special effects in it were temporary or not there at all which would make his ill fated attempt at a review of this movie worthless, anyways. Read more »

MTV released Eminem’s new “We Made You” music video yesterday on their site, and I must say this has got to be one of his most funniest videos to date. The “We Made You” song is the first single to be released off his upcoming album entitled “Relapse”. It also features a chorus that is sung by a soulful newcomer, Charmagne Tripp . This is his first solo single in the past five years. It is produced by none other than Dr. Dre.

The video was produced by Joseph Kahn who also shot his Grammy award winning video “Without Me” from one of his previous albums entitled “The Eminem Show” back in 2002. The video was shot in Las Vegas and has cameo appearances from Dr. Dre, 50 Cent, Kon Artis, Vanilla Ice, Bobby Lee, pornographic actress Lisa Ann, and The Palms hotel owner George Maloof. The video premiered on several MTV channels, April 7,2009. Read more »

Watchmen’s Rorschach is The New Freddy Krueger

Also known for his 1976 role as Kelly in the “Bad News Bears” and Dukes in Will Ferrell’s “Semi Pro”, Jackie Earle Haley is going to be taking over the role that made Robert Englund famous back in the 1980’s as the infamous Freddy Krueger who terrorizes high school kids in their dreams. I’m glad to hear he got the part. I thought he was excellent in “Watchmen” as Rorschach,and I just recently learned he was that Kelly character in the old 1976 “Bad News Bears” movie,but as soon as I was told he was in the “Bad News Bears” movie, I knew it was him. It brought back a bit of nastalgia for me. I used to love watching the “Bad News Bears” as a kid. He was in the acting business up until the early 90’s,1993 to be exact. Then left for a while ,and made a come back in 2006 by playing a pedophile in Todd Field’s “Little Children”.

This latest installment of “Nightmare on Elm Street” is New Line Cinema’s attempt at a reboot of the franchise, and will be directed by Samuel Bayer. Read more »

Judd Apatow Productions To Bring ‘Ghostbusters 3’ Into Reality

Well, it looks like it’s almost official that there is going to be a Ghostbusters 3 movie, and for months Jud Apatow, who recently produced Adam Sandler’s new movie coming out in the summer entitled, “Funny People” had been rumored to be the producer of the resurrection of the 1980’s Ghostbusters’ Franchise. Now, it looks like it is really close to being a reality since Production weekly has started to mention it by stating that Apatow productions would be in charge.

There are no known names or actors for the new Ghostbusters’ film as of yet, but I can say that I would love to see this get done especially with all the new technological advances in film making since the 80’s when the first two Ghostbusters’ films were produced. I think it would be really interesting to see what they can do with it. If the film does get green lighted which I think it will, they will start shooting it in the fall of 2009. We’ll definitely keep you posted.

It has been confirmed that the Lara Croft “Tomb Raider” movie franchise will be revamped.”Tomb Raider” originated as a popular video game that was first introduced back in 1996, and is about a female, daredevil archaeologist named, Lara Croft. Paramount pictures made two movies about it back in 2001 and 2003 which starred Angelina Jolie as the starring role of Lara Croft. She decided after the second installment that she would not accept anymore Lara Croft roles.

Since then, the rights to the Lara Croft character have been reverted to Eidos,but Time Warner has now aquired the rights to it,and are planning to do a total remake of the film. Read more »

Will Smith Confirms ‘Hancock 2’ Movie Plans

Will Smith confirmed a couple of days ago on December 4,2008 in an interview about his new movie,”Seven Pounds” with Joblo that there will be a Hancock 2. He went on to explain that there are many unexplored characters in the Hancock universe that would make for a good sequel and that it will be out in a few years. Ha,ha,ha, screw that. I think the real reason for a sequel to this movie is that it grossed about $623 million worldwide,and that Will Smith movies fatten the wallets of movie studios because Hancock was mediocore at best. I mean the film was going ok for the first half of it ,and then they threw in that horrible plot twist with Bateman’s wife being connected to him and it shot the plot straight to hell leaving a sequel to be almost impossible in my opinion.
