Buffy The Vampire Slayer

The Hollywood Reporter tells us here that Roy Lee and Doug Davison of Vertigo Entertainment seem to be planning to do a 2012 reboot of the film franchise, but to do it without Joss Whedon.

ScreenRant has posted here a trailer and an article about the Cannes Zombie hit with a budget of $70. Director Marc Price told CNN: "One of our make-up people came off 'X-Men 3,' so we were having the same latex that was put on Wolverine. A couple of friends were round a few years ago watching Romero's 'Dawn of the Dead, ' and I wondered if a zombie movie from a zombie's perspective had been done before."

Special thanks to Movie for so many of the dynamite movie posters we use from time to time. You cannot find a better place to run down those new or classic posters.
