I think it’s fair to say that we at /Film have been pretty thorough in our coverage of Sam Raimi’s Wizard of Oz prequel Oz: The Great and Powerful, reporting on every last Bruce Campbell cameo and black-and-white prologue. But in our excitement over that film, we’ve apparently overlooked another, unrelated project that also takes inspiration from L. Frank Baum‘s much-loved fantasy world.
Titled Dorothy and the Witches of Oz, Leigh Scott‘s low-budget sorta-sequel stars Paulie Rojas as successful NYC-based children’s author Dorothy Gale, who learns that her Oz adventures weren’t imagined, but real. Christopher Lloyd, Sean Astin, Ethan Embry, and Billy Boyd also star. Watch the trailer after the jump.

Here’s the first teaser footage from Dimension’s Piranha 3DD, the sequel to Alexandre Aja’s revival of the Piranha series. If this teaser is to be believed, Feast director John Gulager hasn’t changed the formula at all, so this sequel has some sort of story (featuring David Hasselhoff) partially pushed to the background as another group of partying bikini-clad beach babes gets chewed up by hungry prehistoric fish.
We see a glimpse of returning actors Christopher Lloyd and Ving Rhames, the latter of which comes bearing a Robert Rodriguez touch. That, and the whole tone of this teaser, makes Piranha 3DD look like something that might appeal to anyone who enjoyed the low-brow silliness of the last movie. In other words, this is exactly what you expect it to be. Oh, and it is mildly NSFW, as the title suggests. Read More »

It seems Christopher Lloyd‘s still doing brisk business playing Doc Brown, his iconic character from Back to the Future. I loved seeing him step back into character for the Nike MAG sneaker ad — right in the middle of the Lone Pine Mall, no less. But there’s also another, somewhat less awesome commercial featuring Lloyd-as-Doc making the rounds.
A couple of weeks back, we posted an Argentinian ad showing Doc crashing his Deloreon into an electronics superstore called Garbarino. Now a pair of follow-up videos have been released. One features Doc, now “the new face of the Garbarino campaign,” as he oohs and ahhs over gadgets on display in the store. In the other, Doc attends a fake press conference during which he explains why Einstein’s not with him and expresses his desire to see some sexy Argentinian tango. Check them out after the jump.

What is Doc Brown — that is, Christopher Lloyd — advertising in this Argentinian commercial? (Or ‘Argentine.’ I’m never certain which is correct.) The spot features Doc appearing in the Back to the Future DeLorean, which promptly crashes into Garbarino, an electronics superstore. Is this a commercial for the store, or for the phone that Doc seems to be reaching for right at the end? Probably the former, but if you just want to see Lloyd back in character and driving the DeLorean, it probably doesn’t matter.
See the spot after the break. Read More »

The star-studded cast of Rock of Ages is still continuing to expand, with the addition of Saturday Night Live vet Will Forte. Forte has won the role of news anchor Mitch Miley, a new character written especially for Adam Shankman‘s film adaptation of the hit Broadway musical.
Forte will be working with a smorgasbord of Hollywood and music industry stars, including Tom Cruise, Malin Akerman, Alec Baldwin, Bryan Cranston, Mary J. Blige, Russell Brand, Paul Giamatti, Julianne Hough, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Diego Gonzalez Boneta. The plot of Rock of Ages revolves around a small-town gal (Hough) trying to make it in the Hollywood music biz during the 1980s. The show is notable for its soundtrack, comprised of reworked ’80s hits like “I Wanna Rock,” “Here I Go Again,” and of course, “Don’t Stop Believin’.” [The Hollywood Reporter]
After the jump, Doc Brown joins a Canadian horror and Christa Campbell signs on for the film formerly known as Gently Down the Stream.

Briefly: Now, finally, we can all breathe a tremendous sigh of relief. Just when it looked like Piranha 3DD might be a contractually-obligated sequel with a mostly uninspiring cast, we now know that it will probably be a coffer-filling sequel with a slightly more entertaining cast. Because Christopher Lloyd, Ving Rhames and Paul Scheer have all agreed to reprise their roles. Paul Scheer was actually supposed to die in the first film, but that scene was cut, so movie magic, in addition to contractual magic, means that he gets to fight fish another day. How does the Ving Rhames character return? Uh…a twin? Android replicant? Rapid cloning, perhaps?
Cameras are in or near the water in North Carolina right now, with a November release date set. The first film had some silly gore that went so far over the top that I couldn’t help but laugh. Hopefully under the direction of John Gulager (Feast) this one will go even further into blood-red waters.
