It's called CLOVERFIELD damnit!

Well, it finally has a name, which is no real surprise, and now the trailer is online, if you missed it because you were not in the theatres this weekend watching BEOWULF. Also, there's a detailed breakdownof the trailer at EmpireOnline if you're keen.

In an odd bit of cross-viral marketing, if you were watching closely during the last episode of HEROES you would have noticed Elle enjoying a tasty Slusho!

Check out further cross-over madness on director/producer Greg Beeman's blog. Though it's safe to assume that the Heroes will not battle the Cloverfield monster, it does give me the excuse to put up a pic of HRG!

I smell an astronaut!

Notwithstanding the awful Tim Burton remake, who doesn't dig PLANET OF THE APES? Check out these tv commercials from the 70's for the action figures.

What's a writer to do?

So the WGA is on strike, what's to do besides picket? Well, if you're writer/director Edgar Wright you guest host Steve Jones' radio show on Indie 103.1 in Los Angeles, play some tunes and chat up fellow writers Diablo Cody, Sasha Baron Cohen, and Jonah Hill. Click the pic below to listen to the 2 hour show.

Poached from /Film, a great site I visit often for the latest movie news.

The root of the problem

I've been following the news on EDEN LOG, a new French Sci-fi/Horror flick on the fabulous website Twitch, which looks dark and moody and creeptastic. The teaser trailer can be found on YouTube in 10 different languages! Check out the official site here, though only in French so far. There are also pics and teasers in their MySpace page.

Get your 3-D glasses ready!

I think I speak for all robots when I say that we're great fans of Edgar Wright. While reading about the controversy over an American remake of his UK tv show SPACED I stumbled into his 'unofficial but much-needed fansite' and discovered this groovy music video he directed, "Psychosis Safari" by Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster.

I'm in love with a witch!
