    The Last Place You Wanna Be Is Cooped Up With A Dozen Norwegian Guys In 'The Thing' Red Band Trailer

    Forget all those awards season prestige movies and international arthouse hits. With TIFF, Venice and Telluride over, it's now back to blockbuster schlock, so let's get on with the unnecessary "The Thing" remake shall we?

    ‘The Thing’ Remake Yells "Boo!" In First Clip

    The hype generator surrounding Universal’s pricey remake/reimagining/whatever of John Carpenter’s 1982 chiller “The Thing” (itself a remake of 1951’s “The Thing From Another World”) has been on the fritz lately. We first got a fairly impressive look at the movie way back at last year’s New York Comic Con. At that point the film was scheduled for an April 29th, 2011 bow, before getting pushed back considerably to the more Halloween-friendly slot of October 14th, 2011. While this new release date is right around the corner, only one trailer and a single mysterious poster for the flick had surfaced in recent months (though we’re just happy it’s ...

    Martin Scorsese's 'Hugo' Gets A Heart-Shaped Key & 'The Thing' Isn't Human (Yet) On New Posters

    Well, it's officially official. Due to some pretty boneheaded decision made up in a studio executive's office, Martin Scorsese's "Hugo Cabret" has indeed dropped half of the title to become simply "Hugo." Likely terrified that audiences might not know how to pronounce that six-letter word and fearing that it would lead to audiences abandoning the film altogether, it's yet another example of big Hollywood treating their customers like morons. Anyway, it appears that posters are now popping up in multiplexes across the nation as ComingSoon snapped a picture of one in Los Angeles. It features Isabelle's heart-shaped key that proves to be a major...

    The Leftover Question Marks Of 2011 - Can These Films Possibly Be Any Good? Part 1

    The Answer Is Probably Not, But Hey, What The Hell...Our exhausting coverage of the films coming out in 2011 continues and yes, we're tired, hungry and a bit cranky. We used to call this our Least Anticipated Films feature, but this year our New Year's resolution was to be a tiny bit more positive. Frankly, the sentiment applies, but this is also the leftover films of 2011 we just don't know what to do with. Many of them look abysmal, some of us glass-half-full Playlist types (yes, there are a few among us) think, "hey, that picture might not be so bad," while other members of the group stare in shock that such an idea could be possibly float...

    Universal And Sony Find New Fall 2011 Dates For 'The Thing' And 'Moneyball'

    Running a studio is a lot like playing chess. You really have to know how to utilize your pieces and position them for success, but also be aware of what the opposition is up to. Sometimes you have to sacrifice a pawn in order to make a bigger score, and sometimes gambles don't pay off. As such, peo...
