    Retro International 'Sucker Punch' Posters Premiere And Look Familiar

    While the jury will still be out for a few more weeks on whether “Sucker Punch” is actually any good (or at least until it possibly screens secretly at SXSW), Warner Bros. continues to push forward with the film’s marketing. A few days ago they released a second trailer for the film, which resembles more of a music video and somehow gives you even less information about what the film is actually about. Luckily we can provide a synopsis. Basically, the film centers on a girl who enters an alternate reality with her friends and begins planning an escape from a mental institution where she was put by her evil stepfather who intends to have her l...

    Idris Elba, Sean Harris & Kate Dickie Join The Cast Of Ridley Scott's 'Prometheus'

    A project that we were actively dreading only a few months ago, we are now looking forward to Ridley Scott's "Prometheus" more than any film from the director in years. The helmer's always worked best in the sci-fi field ("Alien," "Blade Runner") and the idea that he's working on a project that's evolved from a full-blown prequel to the "Alien" series to (for the most part -- and we'll get to that in a moment) something very different, and more original, is a fascinating one. While the script has since received a major overhaul from "Lost" and "Star Trek" writer Damon Lindelof, if even a small fraction of the bold ideas featured in the Jon Sp...

    Granted, it's not much to go on at this point but considering there is some background to a 3D "Inception," it's not entirely unbelievable.
