See that note, after the jump.

I know, it’s too early to start throwing Christmas movies at you. But this only looks like a Christmas movie. In fact, I believe this trailer for Jingle All the Way 2, starring Larry the Cable Guy, is actually a bunch of footage dressed up as a real movie for Halloween. Sadly, Larry does not play the character originated by Arnold Schwarzenegger in the 1996 movie. That might be a pretty good trick. He’s just another dad trying to get a great gift for his kid. Hint: this Jingle All the Way 2 trailer is not the gift. Read More »
The picture above isn’t a Halloween party shot; it’s a behind the scenes pic from James’ Franco‘s film adaptation of the novel Zeroville. And Seth Rogen isn’t really playing screenwriter and director John Milius. In fact, he’s playing a character called Viking Man… who is a very thinly-disguised representation of Milius. Zeroville features quite a few such figures. Some of the book’s characters are famous (Martin Scorsese is represented, for instance) while others are fairly obscure.
See the full Zeroville shot, complete with an appearance from Will Ferrell, below. Read More »
Like the torn-apart Frank Cotton in the original film, Hellraiser keeps trying to pull itself back together. Harvey Weinstein has experimented with reboot and sequel ideas for the past few years, attaching a couple different directors at different times for projects that ultimately failed. But a year ago Clive Barker revealed that he had pitched Weinstein on a loose remake idea that the producer liked. Suddenly, Barker was reunited with his directorial debut and working on the newest version of the tale.
Now Barker has finished the second draft of the film that will reboot and expand upon the story seen in the original Hellraiser. (And which was created in Barker’s novella The Hellhound Heart.) A few details are below, thanks to the author. Read More »

After multiple successful TV shows with partner Ricky Gervais, Stephen Merchant didn’t have the same success with the HBO show Hello Ladies. It had some fans, both critical and general, but never caught hold of pop culture like other HBO shows and was thought to be done after one season. Well, in classic Merchant fashion, the series is getting one more shot to wrap everything up. HBO will air Hello Ladies: The Movie on November 22nd at 10 p.m. Read More »

The Gambit movie just took a big step forward. We know that Channing Tatum is set to play the character in a film from Fox that will likely connect to the existing X-Men franchise. And now the film has a screenwriter: Josh Zetumer (the RoboCop reboot) will script. But the interesting bit for long-time comic book fans is that Zetumer’s script will be based on a treatment from one of the most significant X-Men comic book writers and the character’s co-creator, Chris Claremont.
