Dead of Night
It's Just Movies take space here to quote reviewer Vanna Land about the film, saying it was "Charming from start to finish with plenty of laughs, just enough gore and suspense and lots of witty banter, even between the most unlikely of characters. The audience certainly seemed to enjoy the movie. Everyone was laughing at the right times and quiet at other times." The synopsis of the film goes like this: "The adventures of supernatural private eye, Dylan Dog, who seeks out the monsters of the Louisiana bayou in his signature red shirt, black jacket, and blue jeans."
The Green Hornet
Everybody has seen this posting from Splash News of footage from the set, including someone in the Green Hornet costume. Now People Magazine reports here on Edward Furlong's problems (including a continsious divorce, a threattened suicide and psychiatric lockdown) Furlong's rep said: "Eddie has been sober for more than five years and is preparing to begin production on a new film (Green Hornet, which he is supposed to begin work on this weekend though his name has not previously been mentioned in connection to the film)." Finally the L.A. Bomb Squad had to be called in to explode an unidentified metal object. It's been a long time since I can remember any film with as much baggage as this December 17, 2010 release.
A Nightmare on Elm Street
Reel Empire points us here for the first trailer for the reboot that is set to open on April 30, 2010.

Variety reports here that BBC America will produce another 13 episodes from the recently cancelled ITV SF series. Those episodes will show up in two arces starting in 2011. Jonathan Drake, Impossible Pictures managing director, said: "The dramatic changes in the business of broadcasting in the last 12 months have meant we have had to completely rethink how we put the funding together for a top-end series like 'Primeval.' The fact that the series is so well established and loved in the U.K. and overseas has meant that everyone has been willing to do their best to give us the backing we needed."
The Hollywood Reporter says here that the successful CBS show is looking at getting a spin-off show next fall.
Slash Film spoke here with Jon Landau (long time James Cameron collaborator) about upcoming projects. First, as to a sequel to the December 18, 2009 release, Landau said: "If the public likes Avatar, it's a possibility. After all, here we are exploring the surface of the planet Pandora. The interior remains to be seen." After that? "We'll go on to Battle Angel [based on the anime Battle Angel] Alita [2011 proposed release date] and The Dive, a love story in the middle of a dive. James is directing both projects."
