Scott Pilgrim

Universal Pictures has released the first full-length movie trailer for Edgar Wright‘s upcoming action-comedy Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. Based on the comic book series written by Bryan Lee O’Malley, Pilgrim tells the story of a charming and jobless 22-year-old who must defeat his new girlfriend’s seven evil ex-boyfriends in order to win her heart. The new trailer will be attached to Get Him To The Greek, but has been put online once the Scott Pilgrim facebook page reached 100,000 fans (which happened at 1:30am on Monday morning).

The new trailer is pretty awesome, and has me even more excited about the film than the initial teaser. The only thing I didn’t like was the lame “it’s on like Donkey Kong” tagline which I’m sure was the “genius” idea of the Universal’s marketing team. Watch the trailer now embedded after the jump. Please leave your thoughts in the comments below.

AMC seems pretty high on Frank Darabont‘s The Walking Dead, a series adaptation of Robert Kirkman’s comics. Andrew Lincoln stars as Rick Grimes, with Jon Bernthal as his partner before the story’s zombie apocalypse takes place.

Now there’s word that Brandon Routh is ‘a lock’ for a role in the series. No role is mentioned, and Bloody Disgusting‘s casting report is otherwise light on details. Meanwhile, what’s up with Dylan Dog, the Routh-starring adaptation of the comic series of the same name? It has an Italian premiere scheduled for this fall, but no US distributor yet. Maybe that will change if Routh kills in Scott Pilgrim.

After the break, an addition to Green Lantern and details on a new secret comedy produced by Todd Phillips. Read More »

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World

How awesome was the teaser trailer for Edgar Wright‘s Scott Pilgrim vs. The World? I know I’ve watched it at least six times now. I’m surprised at how many cool visuals Edgar and Universal were able to cram into under 90 seconds. There is certainly a lot of cool visuals which are worth pressing the pause button to examine at length. Check out all 66 screencaps, after the jump. Click on through to see the images in high (near 2000 pixels wide) resolution.

With The Twilight Saga: New Moon set to hit theaters this week, it seems like a lot of celebrities have been getting into the New Moon parody business. After the jump you will find videos featuring Brandon Routh (Superman Returns), Martha Macisaac (Becca from Superbad), Aubrey Plaza (Funny People, Mystery Team) and Conan O’Brien.

There is a bunch of television news going on today, so I thought I’d put together a little round up. After the jump, I have information on ABC’s V being shut down, Brandon Routh joining Chuck, and confirmation and information of Summer Glau in Dollhouse.

Yet another rusty nail has been driven into my hopes and dreams the coffin of a potential Brian Singer Superman Returns sequel. Talking to Omelete during a Scott Pilgrim set visit, Brandon Routh has admitted that his multi-movie contract with Warners Superman franchise has lapsed. Their original story is in Portuguese, but my IT-abetted attempt at a translation will follow after the break… with a little bonus ‘good news’ about Routh’s upcoming picture Dead of Night.

Fresh back to their news-minting computers from a two day trip to New Orleans and the set of Dead of Night, Shock Till You Drop have posted the first image of Brandon Routh as the film’s hero, Dylan Dog. I’ve excerpted it above, but real fans will want to see his shirt collar (for reasons that may become clear as you read on). Over at Movieweb, meanwhile, they have the first picture of Sam Huntington as Marcus, Dylan’s undead sidekick who I don’t recall from the few reads I ever managed to steal of the original books when I was working in a comics shop.

For those not up on the euro-comics, Dylan is the eponymous lead of Tiziani Sclavi‘s horror comics. He’s a kind of horror detective, often referred to as a nightmare investigator, and he’s always running into ghouls and ghosts and hairy, gory, goopy things. In the comic he lives in London but for the film he’s been relocated. Indeed, the first line of the screenplay reads “The unmistakable skyline of New York City”.

Taye Diggs Cast in Dead of Night

Casting is finally starting to come together on the Dylan Dog live-action adaptation Dead of Night. Brandon Routh has been attached to the project for a while now, and just recently it was revealed that Sam Huntington would be playing Groucho, Dylan Dog’s sidekick. Shock has just learned that Taye Diggs will be playing the main villain of the film, the leader of a group of vampires. TMNT director Kevin Munroe will be making his live-action feature debut with the adaptation.

Based on the Italian comic book which was first published in 1986, and later brought to the United States by Dark Horse Comics, the film tells the story of a penniless nightmare investigator who specializes in the supernatural and wears a trademark red shirt, black jacket, and blue jeans. Dark Horse has released seven English volumes of the comic, and a new 680 page volume is being planned to tie in with the film.
