Scream 4

Ace Showbiz tells us here that the 2010 installment will have to go on without Neve Campbell. Kevin Williamson twittered: "Trying to figure out a Sid-less scenario. She won’t do it. This sucks."

Alice in Wonderland

Ain't It Cool News has a big update (with lots of graphics here and here) on the 2010 Tim Burton film here.


MTV says here that the film is set to open on October 9 2009. The synopsis of the film is: "In the horror comedy Zombieland focuses on two men who have found a way to survive a world overrun by zombies. Columbus is a big wuss — but when you’re afraid of being eaten by zombies, fear can keep you alive. Tallahassee is an AK-toting, zombie-slaying’ bad ass whose single determination is to get the last Twinkie on earth. As they join forces with Wichita and Little Rock, who have also found unique ways to survive the zombie mayhem, they will have to determine which is worse: relying on each other or succumbing to the zombies." Here are some trailers for the film and here
is the official site.

TV DVD News has posted info about "G.I. Joe" (Complete Collector's Footlocker) here, "The Spectacular Spider-Man" (Season 1) here, "The Plastic Man Comedy/Adventure Show" (Complete Series) here, "Wanted: Dead or Alive" (Mill Creek Releases) here, "One Tree Hill" (Season 6) here, "Samantha Who?" (Season 2) here.

King of the Cowboys

Variety reports here that 821 Entertainment plans to return Roy Rogers back to the big screen, as well as animated TV, interactive game and merchandising efforts. CEO Eric Geadelmann said: "The planned film trilogy will not be a biopic, and will not be a traditional Western, but rather a family fantasy adventure. Roy Rogers, Dale Evans and Trigger are quintessential figures of America, and we will introduce this franchise to a new audience while capitalizing on the millions of Roy Rogers fans worldwide."

Red Sonya says here that will shoot in 2010 and be released in the same year. Producer Joe Gatta said: "She's beautiful and sexy, and she kicks ass!…Although you have to be really careful so it's not campy. You want to make it real. Make her convincingly tough. And I think we have a script that's cracked it. Because of certain issues and the economy, we had to change our plan a bit. It's frustrating because we thought we'd make the movie last year, before Conan."

The Birds

Horror Squad reports here that the remake of the Hitchcock classic film is going down the drain. Producer Bradley Fuller said: "We lay ourselves out there and get annihilated out there online all day long and [The Birds] just opens us up to a whole different level of annihilation. In. It doesn't feel like that's [The Birds is] up next for us." Never forget "The Bird's II: Land's End." (Shudder)

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.
