Theatrical Trailers and Clips

Studio News and Attachments

  • FRANKENWEENIE – Tim Burton’s feature length adaptation of his re-animated dog short will be his feature film followup to ALICE IN WONDERLAND.
  • TROLLHUNTERS – Guillermo del Toro will be teaming up with Disney for more mature/thrilling animated fare under the banner Double Dare You.  The first of these films will be TROLLHUNTERS, produced by del Toro and based on his own story.
  • MOURNING AFTER – Remember when one of the key players in creating Lionsgate’s genre friendly identity created his own company, A BIGGER BOAT.  Well their next co-production will be about a “woman with a timeless, deadly secret.”  Real daring material there, guys.
  • JEEPERS CREEPERS 3 – Victor Salva still wants to make it, but it seems people are only just now feeling confident enough to consider investing money…so, don’t expect JEEPERS CREEPERS 3: CATHEDRAL any time soon.
  • HALLOWEEN 3D – According to Variety, Dimension has settled on MY BLOODY VALENTINE 3D director Patrick Lussier to direct the Rob Zombie-less sequel to Rob Zombie’s HALLOWEEN franchise.  According to the big horror sites, he’s only ‘in talks’.

Remakes

  • RESIDENT EVIL – According to Bloody-Disgusting, the producers plan on the 5th entry in the RE series to be a reboot back to the premise of the first film.  Because that’s what people want.

    I have’nt paid attention to the Oscars since They passed over Edward Norton-American History X- and gave the Oscar to Guba Gooding for Jerry MaGuire? but kudos to the academy for acknowleding Corman …maybe the old boy network is finally getting phased out?…but i’m not holding my breath.

    A reboot of Resident Evil? That movie only came out seven years ago! And it wasn’t half bad. Obviously, it did something well enough to have spawned sequels that actually turned profits.

    I dunno, it seems a little ridiculous to think they can top a shitload of lasers slicing people to pieces and Blue-Crush-Zombie.
