Disgusting as the Human Centipede franchise is, I’ve gotta hand it to director Tom Six. Most sequels try to go bigger and better, but few try to go 50 times bigger. After the jump:

  • Tom Six says Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence) will feature a 500-person chain
  • Rodrigo Santoro talks 300 2, or whatever they end up calling it
  • Joss Whedon continues to spill his thoughts on a potential Avengers 2
  • In case you were still wondering, no, there are no plans for a Green Hornet 2
  • Skyfall set pics reveal a familiar-looking car and a handsome-looking Bond

VOTD: ‘[the films of] Michel Gondry’

We’ve been following Kees van Dijkhuisen‘s “[the films of]” since the very beginning, and with the latest video, we’ve now reached the halfway point of his yearlong, twelve-part project. Like the other installments before it, “[the films of] Michel Gondry” focuses on a director’s body of work, showcasing his unique style through a montage of carefully selected clips from his oeuvre. Relive the whimsy and poignancy of a Gondry film in just two and a half minutes, after the jump.

What is Page 2? Page 2 is a compilation of stories and news tidbits, which for whatever reason, didn’t make the front page of /Film. After the jump we’ve included 35 different items, fun images, videos, casting tidbits, articles of interest and more. It’s like a mystery grab bag of movie web related goodness.

If you’ve seen the hideous monstrosity that is Clash of the Titans, replete with its horrendous and eye-torturing attempts at 3D imagery, you probably don’t have much love at all for post-production dimensionalisation. I’ve seen the online reaction to two upconvert projects that have been announced in just the last 24 hours, Michel Gondry‘s Green Hornet film and M. Night Shyamalan‘s The Last Airbender, and it wasn’t pretty.

Now, though, key creative personal on each movie have issued statements to the effect that these films were actually planned and possibly even shot for 3D, though don’t confuse that for them actually being shot in 3D. I’ll give you the quotes after the break, so you can judge for yourself if we’re being told the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

Below the break you can see four alternative covers for the first issue of Kevin Smith‘s new Green Hornet comics. He has adapted his unproduced Green Hornet movie screenplay into a ten chapter miniseries, illustrated by Jonathan Lau. The series has reportedly been fully completed before even the first issue hits the shops, so we at least won’t get some caught in some sort of Cerebus/Big Numbers/Kick-Ass quicksand waiting for each installment.

Peter reported on the series back in May, even before an artist had been appointed. At that time, Smith gave a statement on how faithfully the comics would follow his screenplay:

It’s not a straight-up adaptation of the Green Hornet movie script I wrote some years back, it’s definitely gonna take its cues from that script – just as that script took its cues from all the source material available (radio, TV, comics). So this is about as close as I’ll get to making that Green Hornet flick I walked away from directing all those years ago.

The only plot details Smith shared are that this “story covers the passing of the torch from Britt Reid to his son Britt Jr” and that “another creative team will do a series that covers the ‘golden age’, aka the Green Hornet and Kato most folks are familiar with”. Okay – does that explain why Smith’s Kato is a lady? Didn’t think so. Maybe he just wanted to do screen tests with all the young women in Hollywood dressed in some kind of ‘sexy’ leather outfit.
