Watch the Trailer for Let Me In

I’ll admit it, I’m a sucker for vampire type flicks and horror movies. So when I saw the trailer for the American remake of Swedish horror film Let the Right One In I figured it was something worth sharing.

Renamed Let Me In! it stars Chloe Moretz from Kick-Ass, Kodi Smit-McPhe, Richard Jenkins (Not Leroy Jenkins!!!), and Elias Koteas. Plus it’s directed by Matt Reeves of Cloverfield fame.

Now for you twilight fans, I ran across some other small vamp news. Edi Gathegi has been cast as Darwin in the ‘X-Men: First Class’ movie. Edi plays Laurent in the Twilight films, and now as a mutant, Darwin will have the ability to re-actively evolve. Simply put, if he’s falling out of a plane he can grow wings, swimming in the water gills, stuff like that.

DC Universe Online (Must Watch!) and Marvel Anime News

At the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel gave fans another reason to rejoice. In a recent announcement it came out that G4TV will be airing four new Marvel anime series’ produced by Madhouse Studios. Each of the four series will be 12 episodes and are all written by Warren Ellis. Set to air in 2011, Iron Man, X-Men, Wolverine, and Blade will be making it to a TV near you.

Now, I’m not sure if this game will be good at all, but the trailer is amazingly great. I actually played a little not so long ago but it was in it’s early stages.

M. Night Shyamalan… Don’t Ask Him Hard Questions

Here is a fun video of M. Night Shyamalan defending himself against during a press conference in Mexico City.

I think the question was rather harsh, but fair. I mean The Last Airbender did eat it hard with reviews (it’s at 8% on Rotten Tomatoes!!). Anyway after the question Shyamalan responds back with “I think if I thought like you I’d kill myself. Everything you said is the opposite of my instinct as an artist. The way you just thought, I literally would kill myself.”

Anyway give it a watch.

AMC’s The Walking Dead Cast Picture

I love the editing black and white feel, very much like the comic.

Andrew Lincoln, will star as Rick with Jon Bernthal laying Rick’s partner and best friend. Steven Yeun will play Glenn. Laurie Holden (The X-Files, The Shield” will play Andrea. While Sarah Wayne Callies (Prison Break) will play the female lead opposite Bernthal, as Lori Grimes, the wife of Rick.

Based on the Image comic book series by Robert Kirkman, “The Walking Dead” will premiere on AMC in October 2010.

Ryan Reynolds As Green Lantern – Costume Revealed!

Click to make huge.

On stands Friday, it’s the Entertainment Weekly Comic-Con Special. Not only does it have some great Green Lantern info and images but will also have a sneak peek at Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Thor, Tron: Legacy and they mention zombies so I’m guessing The Walking Dead.

As for our new Hal Jordan, it’s ok but I can’t wait to see it on screen.

Cue The Sad Piano Music, Edward Norton Will Not Play The Hulk Again.

Rumors have been going around the net for the past week that Marvel Studios has possibly made a choice not to bring The Incredible Hulk star Edward Norton back to play Bruce Banner in The Avengers. What it looks like they’d rather do is go out and find an unknown actor to take on the part, a move that to me looks like the wrong one.

Now with this rumor turning into fact, it seems things are getting ugly between Marvel head Kevin Feige, Norton’s agent Brian Swardstrom and even Edward Norton himself.

Let’s take a look shall we! First we have this from Kevin Feige.

We have made the decision to not bring Ed Norton back to portray the title role of Bruce Banner in the Avengers. Our decision is definitely not one based on monetary factors, but instead rooted in the need for an actor who embodies the creativity and collaborative spirit of our other talented cast members. The Avengers demands players who thrive working as part of an ensemble, as evidenced by Robert, Chris H, Chris E, Sam, Scarlett, and all of our talented casts. We are looking to announce a name actor who fulfills these requirements, and is passionate about the iconic role in the coming weeks

Then Brian Swardstrom fired back:

This offensive statement from Kevin Feige at Marvel is a purposefully misleading, inappropriate attempt to paint our client in a negative light. Here are the facts: two months ago, Kevin called me and said he wanted Edward to reprise the role of Bruce Banner in The Avengers. He told me it would be his fantasy to bring Edward on stage with the rest of the cast at ComiCon and make it the event of the convention. When I said that Edward was definitely open to this idea, Kevin was very excited and we agreed that Edward should meet with Joss Whedon to discuss the project. Edward and Joss had a very good meeting (confirmed by Feige to me) at which Edward said he was enthusiastic at the prospect of being a part of the ensemble cast. Marvel subsequently made him a financial offer to be in the film and both sides started negotiating in good faith. This past Wednesday, after several weeks of civil, uncontentious discussions, but before we had come to terms on a deal, a representative from Marvel called to say they had decided to go in another direction with the part. This seemed to us to be a financial decision but, whatever the case, it is completely their prerogative, and we accepted their decision with no hard feelings.

We know a lot of fans have voiced their public disappointment with this result, but this is no excuse for Feige’s mean spirited, accusatory comments. Counter to what Kevin implies here, Edward was looking forward to the opportunity to work with Joss and the other actors in the Avengers cast, many of whom are personal friends of his. Feige’s statement is unprofessional, disingenuous and clearly defamatory. Mr. Norton talent, tireless work ethic and professional integrity deserve more respect, and so do Marvel’s fans.

And now it looks like Edward Norton responded via his Facebook page:

As most of you know, I don’t like to talk much about the business of making movies because it means a lot to me to protect the audience’s fullest enjoyment of the ‘magic’ that films can have. But I am so appreciative of the outpouring of support from fans of the Hulk and the Avengers that I feel it would be rude not to respond. So here goes: It seems it won’t work out for me to continue playing Bruce Banner for Marvel in “The Avengers”. I sincerely hoped it could happen and be great for everyone, but it hasn’t turned out as we all hoped. I know this is disappointing to many people and that makes me sad. But I am very sincerely grateful to Marvel for extending the offer and even more so for giving me the chance to be a par of the Hulk’s long and excellent history. And I really can’t thank the fans enough for how much enthusiasm you’ve sent my way about what Louis and I tried to do in our turn with the legend.It means a lot to me. I grew up with Banner and Hulk and have been a fan of every incarnation. I’m really proud, and very blessed, to have been one of them and will be thrilled to see him live on through other actors. Hulk is bigger than all of us, that’s why we love him, right?

Andrew Garfield Cast as Peter Parker!

Sony and Marvel have officially announced the next Spider-Man, and it’s Anton from the The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus… a movie I’m guessing none of you saw.

The announcement that Garfield will be our new Peter Parker in the younger, rebooted pictures being directed by Marc Webb showed up on Sony’s official Twitter page, odd for a large announcement but this is the new web!

The film will begin production in early December directed by Marc Webb from a screenplay by James Vanderbilt. Laura Ziskin and Avi Arad will produce the film from Columbia Pictures and Marvel Studios.

Garfield will hopefully bring a strong physical appearance to the roll, the rumor is the script uses Brian Michael Bendis comic ‘Ultimate Spider-Man‘ as a backbone and foundation for this reboot.

As for what type of Parker the studio is looking to get out of Garfield producer Avi Arad stated in a press release, via Slashfilm:

I’m incredibly excited about Andrew Garfield. In the Spider-Man tradition, we were looking for a smart, sensitive, and cool new Peter Parker who can inspire us and make us laugh, cry, and cheer. We believe we have found the perfect choice to take on this role and lead us into the future

While I want to believe he can do all these things, we’ll just have to wait and see.

October 29th, Monsters will be released in select theaters in New York City and Los Angeles

I’m pretty happy about this, the clips look great and so far the reviews have been pretty positive, it looks like Gareth Edwards’ well-reviewed film about aliens quarantined in Mexico, Monsters, is getting a limited release on October 29 in New York City and Los Angeles.

Here’s the official synopsis:

Six years ago NASA discovered the possibility of alien life within our solar system. A probe was launched to collect samples, but crashed upon re-entry over Central America. Soon after, new life forms began to appear and grow. In an effort to stem the destruction that resulted, half of Mexico was quarantined as an INFECTED ZONE. Today, the American and Mexican military still struggle to contain the massive creatures… Our story begins when a jaded US journalist (McNairy) begrudgingly agrees to find his boss’ daughter, a shaken American tourist (Able) and escort her through the infected zone to the safety of the US border.
