David Hasselhoff has become the latest actor to join Piranha 3DD, the sequel to last year’s Piranha 3D (which in turn was a remake of the 1978 film Piranha). The new cast looks just as enjoyably eclectic as the last one — in addition to returning stars Christopher Lloyd, Ving Rhames, and Paul Scheer, 3DD will also feature Katrina Bowden (30 Rock), Gary Busey (Point Break), Danielle Panabaker (The Crazies), David Koechner (Anchorman) and Matt Bush (Adventureland).
Here’s the plot synopsis — not that the premise is terribly difficult to figure out:
There’s something in the water . . . again. And this time no one is safe from the flesh eating fish as they sink their razor sharp teeth into the visitors of the best summer attraction, The Big Wet Water Park.
Piranha 3DD is currently shooting in Wilmington, NC under the direction of John Gulager (Feast). The film will open November 23, 2012. [The Hollywood Reporter]
After the jump: A plagiarizer, an Italian bird scientist, and a host of Hollywood stars.

I never thought I’d be this jazzed to see a horse-racing drama, but ‘jazzed’ only begins to capture how I feel after watching the first behind the scenes look at Luck, the HBO show from Michael Mann and David Milch that stars Dustin Hoffman and Nick Nolte. This video is a relatively brief featurette on the making of the show, but it has enough tiny clips of the actors in action that I think you’ll walk away from it wanting to see a lot more.

Other than comedies, sports movies are probably ruined in trailers more than another other genre. Mostly that’s because sports movies are generally predictable and cheesy but, even with that caveat, the trailer for Warrior might cross the line. Directed by Gavin O’Connor and starring Tom Hardy and Joel Edgerton, the film follows two brothers who simultaneously, for different reasons, enter into the world of professional mixed martial arts. Just from that sentence alone you probably can venture a very educated guess as to what the film’s climax will be but does the trailer really need to not only show it, but blatantly state it?
Despite that, Warrior looks to be a potentially entertaining story of family and sport, much in the vein of The Fighter. Peter seemed to think so when he saw the film at CinemaCon and now you can judge for yourself. Warrior, which also stars Nick Nolte, is scheduled for release on September 9. The spoiler-filled trailer’s embedded after the jump. Read More »
Warner Bros has released a second movie trailer for the remake of Arthur. Russell Brand plays an “irresponsible charmer” named Arthur Bachwho will lose his limitless fortune if he doesn’t accept an arranged marriage. I’m still not sold on two things: 1. The need for this remake and 2. that this movie is funny enough to warrant a $10-$15 movie ticket. The only reason I’m curious to see the film is the involvement of Luis Guzman and the Batman/Robin bit that is teased in the advertising. Watch the trailer embedded after the jump. Please leave your thoughts in the comments below.

In the midst of giant effing robots, magical wizards, superheros, pirates and more, Kevin James is returning to a theater near you during the summer of 2011. His latest film, Zookeeper, directed by Frank Coraci and co-starring Rosario Dawson and Leslie Bibb, is scheduled for release July 8. The teaser trailer was just released and it looks like a blend of James’ last improbable smash hit, Paul Blart: Mall Cop, with Night at the Museum and Madagascar. James plays a zookeeper who wins the girl of his dreams with the help of the animals. How exactly do the animals help? They talk of course! Featuring the voices of Cher, Nick Nolte, Adam Sandler, and Sylvester Stallone, check out the trailer, poster and plot synopsis after the jump. Read More »
