Pull my tail...

Charles Burns' graphic novel BLACK HOLE has long been rumoured to be adapted into a feature length live action film, with such names as Alexandre Aja, Neil Gaiman, Roger Avary, and David Fincher attached at one point or another. Whether or not this film ever sees the light of day is anyone's guess, but for now we have this short, by director Rupert Sanders, which shows us a tiny bit of what could be. Click the pic below to check it out, but be warned, it's rather freaky and NSFW :)

I'm SO metal!

You'd think I'd be thrilled with all the robot action this week, but I'm not. First we get a teaser trailer for TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON. Looks like the Apollo 11 crew found some grandpa robot on the moon. Hey Michael Bay, check out Neil Armstrong drinking your milkshake, by explaining that the moon walk in your little movie couldn't happen. Click the pic to see the trailer. Since I pretty much avoided the 2nd film like the plague I guess I won't be seeing this either, as surely I'd be lost in the plot.

Next up is the eagerly anticipated feature film adaptation of the 1964 children's game Rock'Em Sock'Em Robots starring The Wolverine Hugh Jackman.

Now this flick really has me pissed off.Speaking as a robot myself, we should not be fighting each other, we should be crushing humanity as predicted in so many other movies! Check out the trailer for REAL STEEL by clicking the pic below, and I'll comfort myself by gazing at co-star and future ex-wife Evangeline Lilly.

What's news!

Trailers trailers everywhere! The teaser trailer for Jon Favreau's COWBOYS AND ALIENS just dropped, starring James Bond, Indiana Jones, and my future ex-wife Olivia Wilde. Click her to check it out.

I'm not really sold on GREEN LANTERN after this trailer, could be fun, though I have zero expectations for this flick. Only thing that does it for me, Peter Sarsgaard with a giant mustache AND a giant head. Touch his huge head to see for yourself.

And then there's David Gordon Green's YOUR HIGHNESS. You put two hilarious actors (James Franco, Danny McBride) and two major geek crushes (Natalie Portman, Zooey Deschanel) into this medieval stoner epic... looks like gold to me. Also, Justin Theroux looks like he just fell out of the MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE movie! Touch his magic wand to watch the red band trailer. I am stoked for this one.

Behind the DUNE

Check out this pretty cool behind the screens footage from David Lynch's DUNE, filmed in Super 8 by Sean Young. I could do without Young's weird voice over and The Entertainer as background music.

What happens when a downtown Blockbuster Video shop goes out of business? You raid their going out of business sale. Not much by the time I got there.

Vodka and Robots

Premiering tonight at the Sundance Film Festival, I'M HERE is a 30 minute love story about the relationship between two robots living in L.A.,  written and directed by Spike Jones, AND sponsored by Absolute Vodka. I guess robots get loaded too... although I already knew that.

You can find a trailer for it here.

Who am I to judge you Stanley?

Utah calling...

There are many reasons I wish I was in Park City right now: the Sundance Film Festival, the Slamdance Film Festival, jumping back and forth from hot tub to snowbank... and particularly for the world premiere of THE RUNAWAYS, the first feature film directed by Floria Sigismondi. Check out more picks over at Collider.

And I'm definitely intrigued by HESHER, the story of a 13-year-old boy and his father move in with their grandmother to pick up the pieces of their life after their mother's death. Soon the boy meets Hesher, a chain-smoking anarchist head banger who loves blowing things up. Together they might help each other.

First off, I'll watch anything with Joseph Gordon-Levitt in it, and secondly, it's directed by Spencer Susser, who you might know from his zombie short I LOVE SARAH JANE.

What was new(s)...

Happy New Year! OK, a little late for that, so what?! I'm not an early riser, sue me!
Here's some this and that I've noticed recently:

AVATAR makes all the money, which is pretty surprising for a re-boot of Disney's POCAHONTAS. I'm glad I got the full on IMAX 3-D experience, but otherwise I found it pretty forgettable, except for Michelle Rodriguez being fierce as always.

I enjoyed the Hell out of SHERLOCK HOLMES, it was exactly what I expected, a big gay Victorian action romp. Just don't tell Andrea Plunket, who holds the US copyright to the literary Holmes saga how gay it was, as she has threatened to pull the rights if a sequel were to further explore Holmes in an homoerotic light. That's too bad really, as I really enjoyed the 'married couple' dynamic that Downey Jr. and Law brought to the material.
The first rule of fight club is, don't discuss the man-love...
