Watch out Edward Cullen! Here Comes Barnabas Collins!

There have been rumors about whether or not Tim Burton and Johnny Depp will team up to recreate the 1966 television show Dark Shadows. Well, Burton confirmed at Comic Con that it will eventually happen and that Depp will play Barnabas Collins.

We all know how I feel about Johnny Depp and we all know that I have studied the mythology of vampires since high school, but the idea of Depp playing a vampire is like a child on Christmas morning for me. I can't wait! Check out the full article on Yahoo! Movies.

"The Twilight Saga: New Moon" First Official Clips

So this past weekend millions went to Comic Con to see exclusive clips from The Twilight Saga: New Moon. The first clip shows Bella running through the streets of Italy to stop Edward from stepping into the sunlight to reveal his true identity (a vampire sparkler). The second clip shows Jacob teaching Bella how to ride a motocycle, but she "sees" and "hears" Edward in her mind. He is there because she is doing something reckless and this becomes her motive to do crazy things.

I have read the entire series and from these clips it seems that the director chose to stay close to the book. I think it will be effective allowing us to see Edward instead of just hearing his voice in Bella's mind. It will be interesting to see how it turns out.

By the way, turn your volume down. I can't control the screaming girls.

The Official "A Nightmare on Elm Street" Poster

Freddy's back! Here is the official poster for A Nightmare on Elm Street. I have to say it looks really good and it still has us wondering if his face will look any different. Collider has more info and posters for other upcoming flicks.

"Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time" Poster

I know this is based on a video game, but I was shocked to see Disney's name on it. Well, then again Disney is pretty much taking over the world. Jake Gyllenhaal looks pretty awesome and hot! Check out the other posters at Rotten Tomatoes.

Pics from "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus"

Here are some pics from Heath Ledger's final performance The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus. The film also co-stars Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell. Check out Rotten Tomatoes for more.

The New Freddy Krueger

Here's a glimpse at the new Freddy Krueger who will NOT be Robert Englund. Jackie Earle Haley will be portraying the horror icon. This new pic doesn't give us a good look at his face, but it does give us the "classic" Freddy that we all remember from the beginning. Check out more at ComingSoon. The relaunch of A Nightmare on Elm Street hits theatres April 16, 2010.

"Pirates 4" to Start Filming Next Year

This is good news to my ears. According to Dark Horizons Disney's Head of Production, Oren Aviv states:

"We're going to shoot 'Pirates 4' in April and May of next year. We are going to release it hopefully in 2011 is the plan" said Aviv who adds that though this is only one movie, if successful it will "hopefully be the first of another trilogy"

"He also expects the tone to be much smaller next time around - "We can't get bigger... I want to kind of reboot the whole thing and bring it down to its core, its essence, just characters."

I like the idea of a "reboot" because it will start a whole new trilogy with new characters and adventures. I believe its going to be great as long as they have a good script and director.

Finally! The "Alice in Wonderland" Teaser Trailer

As I said before...Tim Burton equals genius.

"Alice in Wonderland" Trailer

The trailer was accidentally leaked early and Disney has requested that sites wait until tomorrow to post the trailer. If you saw it early then let me know what you think! I'll have it up as soon as its available. Below is what I thought of the trailer.

Thank you to the Movie Gods for releasing this today. Now I can go back to work in peace. This is truly Burton at his best. Pay attention to the crisp visuals and imagine how amazing this will look in 3D. The trailer is centered around Johnny Depp because everyone knows he is always up for being in a Burton film. It looks absolutely amazing!

Scarlett Johansson as the Black Widow

I'm ready for next summer for many reasons.

First, the movies will hopefully be more appealing than this years.

Second, I hope there is atleast three movies I will see over again. I only saw one movie twice and that was Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

And finally we have the sequel to Iron Man. I don't know much about the comic series, but here is the first picture of Scarlett Johansson as the Black Widow.

"The Gate" is Getting Reopened

Remember the 1987 movie The Gate? I remember it well because it scared the crap out of me. Basically, a few kids discover a gateway to hell in their backyard and it unleashes demons and other supernatural spirits. Well, it was announced that the film will be remade in 3D. I don't know how I feel about that because recently every remake of a horror classic has not surpassed the original. I believe that no one will ever be able to surpass an original horror classic. It's like when they remade Psycho. It was a complete disaster. I understand that every director has their own vision, but lately their vision has not appealed to me. To read more on the remake of The Gate check out Bloody Disgusting.

A New Trailer for "The Twilight Saga: New Moon" is Coming Soon

The new trailer for The Twilight Saga: New Moon will be played in front of Bandslam, which opens August 14. I wonder how many people will be going to see the movie just for the trailer. Hmmm....probably a lot. I'll find it online. I'm looking forward to seeing some new scenes from the movie, which hits theatres on November 20. Check out Twilight Series Theories for more details.

Not a Depp-ful Movie

So many know that I have been waiting all year for a new Johnny Depp movie and I was left disappointed. Don't get me wrong Public Enemies is a good movie, I just can't get into crime dramas very well. I was hoping that Depp could change my prospective on the genre, but I was still bored. There were many good aspects to the film, such as the setting. Michael Mann did an incredible job by creating 1930's Chicago, which is the heart of the crime wave. The costumes, the old Fords and of course the Tommy Guns were all very interesting to see done so well.

I'm not very familiar with the story of John Dillinger, but from what I've heard and also saw it is pretty true to what really happened right down to his death. I also liked how the idea of a criminal was romanticized in the early 30's. People treated Dillinger like he was a celebrity. They wanted to know how long it took him to rob a bank and how he did it. He was America's early bad boy and the one women wanted to be with.

Now for the cast. Christian Bale did not impress me one bit. I don't think I've seen him in anything where he has actually turned himself into someone else. Now, many may think he did in The Dark Knight, but no one could hold a candle to Heath Ledger. I just don't think he has been give that role where he can actually transform himself.

Marion Cotillard was amazing. It was nice to see a women in the early 30's stand up for her beliefs. She wanted to be with Dillinger and she would do anything to protect him.

And now for Johnny. He was good, but he is not the Depp everyone may expect. He is not playing a character, he is playing a person. Most actors want to stay true to the person's life and don't want to change it when doing a biopic. Depp is known for doing many biopics such as Ed Wood, George Jung in Blow and J.M. Barrie in Finding Neverland, which I believe are some of Depp's best. In a recent article in the July issue of Vanity Fair Depp talked about how he searched for an audio recording of Dillinger voice, but had no luck. He ended up finding a recording of Dillinger's dad. He stated:

" There were some recordings which sounded exactly like my relatives. I mean, his pop sounded like my grandfather, almost exactly. So I just made the decision to sound not aggressively southern but to adopt a bit of a drawl."

Depp does not go into a film without doing his homework first. He visited all of the major landmarks where Dillinger used to be in the 30's. He also fired guns on a regular basics. When he plays the life of a person he wants to resemble them as best as possible. He stated:

"There's a certain responsibility playing a guy, even Dillinger. You want to do him right, ya know. You don't want to let him down. He may be watching. So I don't want to water down the integrity of the person I'm playing. I want to find its essence."

Even though the work is not Depp's best for me, you have to respect the hell out of him for what he does for each movie he stars in. He does not just walk onto a film set and take orders from the director. He takes creative control for all of his work and that is why he will be this generation's Hollywood Icon.

What Happened to the "Movie" Music Video?

Since the recent passing of Michael Jackson, I've started to wonder what's happened to the "Movie" music video. Jackson revolutionized music videos and especially the "Movie" music video with "Thriller." "Thriller" is the greatest "Movie" music video of all time. Now, MTV only shows us reality TV. They should change the name to RTV (Reality TV). There is something special about music videos because they give us a montage of images that create a story. They are like little experimental films that only last for four minutes or longer and they turn musicians into actors. I miss seeing "Movie" music videos. I know that musicians still create videos, but they will never have the longevity that Michael Jackson has created over the years. Thank you for the videos MJ!

Another "Good" For "Transformers 2"

I just wanted to give a shout out to The Movie Blog because they came up with another positive for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. The Music. I can't believe it didn't cross my mind. The score is incredible. I posted the video for Linkin Park's "New Divide," which plays frequently throughout the film. The soundtrack is also really good with artists like Green Day, All American Rejects, Stain and Nickleback. I posted the main score for the Autobots, which does play in the film.
