New Poster for The Host..plus a peek ast The Monster


The Host has been gaining momentum these past few days. It just got rave reviews in its premiere in Cannes. I personally can't wait til Anwar has it on his stall near the meat section.

Anyways the international poster is out. It doesn't give away the mysterious creature living in the Han river, but I just saw a clip in Twitch...oh my. Sure, some mediocre Hollywood flicks have had more special effects shots than this movie will ever have, but the few moments this creature comes out is a Korean movie milestone.

If you want a peek at the creature, click here.



"I'm A Cyborg, But That's Ok"



Chan Wook Park hasd finally finished his revenge trilogy with Sympathy For Lady Vengeance. He has often stated that he would steer away from violent, revenge driven films in the next few projects, which leads him to involve himself in a most unlikely genre, a romantic comedy.

Of course, since Chan Wook Park is in the helm, this will not be without it's quirks.

The movie is called, ready for this? ,I'm A Cyborg, But That's Ok, it's about a girl who thinks she's a cyborg and there are a few scenes where she's in some sort of padded cell in a mental institution. Yes folks this is a love story.

That's Park for yah!!!




Tom Cruise Will NOT Be Iron Man


How many Tom Cruises do you need to screw a lightbulb?

Ok, that was a lame intro. but at least I bear somewhat good news. John Favreau, who is slated to be the director of the next Marvel franchise moneymaker Iron Man, says that he would be picking a relatively unknown actor to play Tony Stark/Ironman. So unless Tom Cruise is considered as a "relative" unknown, he may have a fighting chance. But the truth is, we have known Tom Cruise for many years now and CAN'T GET AWAY FROM HIM EVEN IF WE TRIED!!!




Ghost Rider Trailer Up.


Nicolas Cage (Boy, am I glad he's not Superman) will be Ghost Rider, and we have the trailer to prove it. I have posted pics a while a go, but the reslease schedule was since then been a little iffy. Now we have a definite date.

Click here for the trailer


Props to Twitch and TheMovieBlog

Jon Favreau? as in Vince Vaughn and? He directs? Wow, didn't know that. Love that guy. I get excited whenever I recognize him in a movie and didn't know he was in it.
