Troll Hunter

I have to say that the trailer is a lot of fun but is also a bit cornball-ish, with a Blair Witch style of shooting and providing plenty of chases through the woods, and the looks of horror on the characters faces are to die for. Yet this has everything you’re looking for in a movie about people hunting trolls.

Genre: Fantasy, Thriller
Official Site:
MPAA Rating: PG-13 for violence and creature terror

Starring: Amanda Seyfried, Gary Oldman, Billy Burke, Shiloh Fernandez, Max Irons, Virginia Madsen, Lukas Haas, Julie Christie.

Plot Summary:

For decades, the people of the village of Daggerhorn have maintained an uneasy truce with the werewolf, who prowls at every full moon, by offering the beast a monthly animal sacrifice to quench its appetite. But under a blood red moon, the wolf changes the stakes by taking the life of one of their own.

The victim is the older sister of Valerie (Seyfried), a beautiful, young woman, who has just found out that her parents (Burke and Madsen) have arranged for her to marry Henry (Irons), the scion of the town’s wealthiest family. But Valerie wants only Peter (Fernandez), the poor woodcutter she has loved all her life. Unwilling to be parted, the couple was planning to run away together, but, in a horrifying instant, the wolf changes everything.

As the townspeople hunger for revenge, famed werewolf hunter Father Solomon (Oldman) is summoned to Daggerhorn to kill the beast once and for all. But Solomon’s arrival brings only more turmoil as he warns everyone that the werewolf takes human form by day and could be any one of them. No one is above suspicion. Panic grips the town as the death toll rises with each red moon, tearing apart the once close-knit village. But it is Valerie who discovers she has a unique connection to the wolf that inexorably draws them together, making her both suspect…and bait.

jurassic park 4


Well, there is going to be a Jurassic Park 4,” he told Boxoffice magazine. “And it’s going to be unlike anything you’ve seen. It breaks away from the first three — it’s essentially the beginning of the second Jurassic Park trilogy. It’s going to be done in a completely different way. That’s pretty much all I can tell you.

This is a surprise because back in November, Johnson had doubts if the film would ever get off the ground. Here is what he had to say back then: “Why would anybody go back to that island? It was hard enough to figure out the second and third reason for them to go.

So if nobody will be heading to the island, what the hell will this film be about? The rumor is that the script focuses on a government that has trained dinosaurs to carry weapons and use them for battle purposes. If the rumors is true maybe they just need to combine this movie with the Battleship movie which is suppose to have aliens attacking the US Battle Fleet!!



Gostbusters 3

They have delivered a draft,” he said. “We are working our way through another draft… good work is being done and all of us have our fingers crossed. I hope to start shooting it this next year.

When MTV asked if he will be returning to direct the new movie, Reitman replied: “Yes.

In an interview from about two weeks ago, Harold Ramis said that the plan is to begin filming Ghostbusters 3 in the summer and then release it in theater in 2011.

Cary Elwes (Saw) is in talks to play George Harrison, Dean Lennox Kelly (“Robin Hood”) is in talks to play John Lennon, Peter Serafinowicz (Couples Retreat) is in talks to play Paul McCartney, and Adam Campbell (Epic Movie) is in talks to play Ringo Starr. Check out image below to see the actors next to the musicians.

The original film was animation and released in 1968, it was based on the music by the Beatles and featured a storyline wherein a soldier called Old Fred meets up with the Beatles and travels in a yellow submersible to Pepperland. Among the group’s encounters are the music-hating Blue Meanies.

Zemeckis is making the movie using 3D performance-capture technology which he has used in his last three films.
