2013: UPCOMING MOVIES/CASTING/RUMORS/ETC


Recommended Posts

I enjoy the 47 Ronin story in all of the formats it has been presented.  Whether comics, prose fiction, nonfiction, animation, etc.... I am not sure how I feel about Samurai Whooooaaaa and 47 Other Dudes The Creed movie sounds promising.  This time we may see Rocky as "Mickey"  type mentor

Did you recent the Dark Horse mini that just finished?

Oh man, if I was a kid or even a teenager, this would probably be my favourite movie ever. Are you kidding? Samurai and ogres and I don't even have to read subtitles? 

 

But I'm all grows up, so this looks pretty crap.

I haven't but I am sure Stan Sakai did a smash up job. Have you read it yet?

He was pretty much the only person for that role that won't require a shitload of makeup.

 

Give her a haircut and a fake moustache and Jessica Pare would be perfect.

Wallace being a movie star pretty boy will never cease to amaze me.

Seriously, he may end up being the biggest star from the entire show if things keep going this way. I thought he was barely passable as Wallace, but he has actually turned into a really good young actor.
What? He was fantastic as Wallace. Nonsense.

I present CREED!!!!!!!

 

I'm may be in the minority here, but I always thought that Apollo Creed was as good of a character, if not better, than Rocky. 

 

This is incredibly exciting.  I have SOME reservations about a movie in the Rocky timeline that isn't all Stallone's vision, but the potential for this is extremely high.

 

 

The first Rocky went 3/10 at the Oscars. It's also a re-teaming of the director and star of Fruitvale Station. It's going to be awesome.

 

Creed's rich grandson seeks out his father's broken down boxing friend to help prove everyone wrong about his dream to become a boxer. I fail to see how this won't be amazing.

I am humored how the entire marketing for The To Do List became WATCH AUBREY PLAZA MASTURBATE ON CAMERA!!!!

 

Or alternately HOW TIGHT OF A SWEATER CAN WE PUT ON ALIA SHAWKAT??  Jesus....  Yes, Marketing Department, I realize what the selling point of the movie is.

 

I am just happy Aubrey dropped the eyeglasses she wore in Funny People and Scott Pilgrim because she kinda resembled Jodi Arias...  Creeeeeeeepy.....

 

I am going to buy shares of Dole when this movie comes out because pineapple juice is going to fly off of the shelves.

James McAvoy is going to be Victor Von Frankenstein and Daniel Radcliffe is going to be MOTHER FUCKING IGOR in a Paul McGuigan directed  and untitled Frankenstein film by Fox.

So I'm reading about Nymphomaniac, Lars Von Trier's sex epic coming out at the end of the year, and I read he's planning to digitally place the top half of actors onto the bottom half of porn actors who are having sex. I think it's a joke, but I couldn't help but think whoever that kid was that made hundreds of jpeg fakes of Jennifer Anniston's face on porn bodies in the 90's just hit paydirt with this job.

Well it comes out Christmas, so it's either done or they're doing all this digital stuff.

 

You'll probably see Shia's actual LeBeouf at the beginning of a scene, and then we'll see him pop a couple Extenze to explain any...um...differences in continuity.

Considering most of Von Trier's "rules" on how films should be made were lifted from amateur internet porn that sounds about right.

I put it at even odds that at some point we see the Turtle Van transform in to a giant turtle to combine the universes and bring us Michael Bay's version of Beast Wars.

The Toronto Film Festival announced almost their entire Midnight Madness program today - nine of ten titles.  They're holding one back for some reason.  Spoilered for length.

 

Afflicted

This ingenious feature debut follows two friends (played by co-directors Derek Lee and Clif Prowse) who set out to travel the world. But the trip soon takes a dark and bloody turn when one of the men shows signs of a mysterious affliction which gradually takes over his entire body.

 

All Cheerleaders Die
A high-school outsider’s plot to revenge herself on the captain of the football team turns bloody when some phantasmagorical hijinks get tossed into the mix, in this refreshingly smart horror comedy from directors Lucky McKee (May, The Woods) and Chris Sivertson (I Know Who Killed Me).
 
Almost Human
A quiet rural town in Maine becomes a raging inferno of axe murders and alien abduction in this lean, mean and grisly indie horror flick.
 
The Green Inferno
Horror maestro Eli Roth (Hostel) returns to the director’s chair for this gruesome homage to the notorious Italian cannibal movies of the late seventies and early eighties.
 
Oculus
Years after the mysterious deaths of their parents, a traumatized brother and sister find the cause of their family tragedy: a cursed mirror whose 300-year history has left a bloody trail of destruction in its wake.
 
R100
A mild-mannered family man with a secret taste for S&M finds himself pursued by a gang of ruthless dominatrixes — each with a very special talent — in this hilarious and bizarre take on the sex comedy from Japanese comedy giant Hitoshi Matsumoto (Big Man Japan, Symbol).

 

Rigor Mortis

A public-housing tenement is plunged into a dark storm of supernatural chaos, in this loving tribute to the cult classic Hong Kong horror-comedy series Mr. Vampire.
 
The Station
The crew of a remote weather research station in the German Alps find that a retreating glacier is turning the local wildlife into ravenous biological monstrosities, in this timely horror thriller from director Marvin Kren (Rammbock).
 
Why Don't You Play In Hell?
A renegade film crew becomes embroiled with a yakuza clan feud in this wild, perverse and blood-soaked orgy of outrageousness from cult director Sion Sono (Suicide Club).

 

Also, a couple others were announced that aren't in the Midnight Madness program, but could've fit in there:

 

Horns

Blamed for the brutal murder of his longtime girlfriend (Juno Temple), a small-town guy (Daniel Radcliffe) awakens one morning to find a pair of horns growing from his head, in this offbeat supernatural thriller from horror ace Alexandre Aja (Haute tension, Piranha 3D).
 
The Sacrament
Inspired by the infamous mass suicide of Peoples Temple cultists at Jonesetown, Guyana, the latest film from indie genre icon Ti West (The House of the Devil, The Innkeepers) sends frequent collaborators AJ Bowen, Amy Seimetz, Joe Swanberg and Kentucker Audley on a harrowing journey into madness and messianic bloodshed.
