stallone-wright-trivia

There are a couple of small pieces of trivia that cropped up this week, none really worth a headline of their own, but entertaining enough that I’ve crammed a couple together here. One comes from the deep history of Sylvester Stallone, who talks about an audition he once had in front of George Lucas. The other tells of a set of films that could have borne Edgar Wright’s name, had things been a little bit different. Read More »

crazies-final-smallThe /Filmcast: After Dark is a recording of what happens right after The /Filmcast is over, when the kids have gone to bed and the guys feel free to speak whatever is on their minds. In other words, it’s the leftover and disorganized ramblings, mindfarts, and brain diarrhea from The /Filmcast, all in one convenient audio file. In this episode, David Chen, Devindra Hardawar, and Adam Quigley are joined by Breck Eisner, director of The Crazies, to discuss the phenomenon of remakes, the benefits of 3D, and Eisner’s upcoming planned Flash Gordon remake. C. Robert Cargill from Aint It Cool News also stays with us to share his views on The Hurt Locker. The Crazies is out in theaters today.

The Crazies Movie Trailer #3

the_crazies

The third (and presumably last) trailer for Breck Eisner’s The Crazies has hit, and this one is all about being short and sweet. We covered the first trailer back in October (which featured the Gary Jules cover of “Mad World”), and the second in December, which went a bit more in depth with the setup. The film tells the tale of a small town whose population has been turned into crazy killing machines by some sort of unknown toxin. It stars Timothy Olyphant as a small town sheriff who is trying to survive against the hordes of insane civilians and violent military retaliation, along with his pregnant wife (Radha Mitchell).

We don’t have as many big new posters dropping at the end of the year as we do trailers, but a few new images have cropped up for films that premiere early in 2010. It’s mostly horror and thriller stuff, but then there’s a new image for the Mark and Michael Polish movie Stay Cool, the existence of which I’d completely forgotten. (And, no, that’s not another film in line with Get Shorty and Be Cool.) See all the images after the break.

Edit: You may see a so-called teaser poster for Predators lurking around today, but it’s just a temp image cobbled together for an international website showing Fox’s upcoming slate. It’s not a legit teaser. We’ll run the real thing when it arrives.

the_crazies_trailer_1

The first trailer for Breck Eisner‘s The Crazies was pretty good, but with one significant misstep: it made heavy use of the song ‘Mad World’, which for the next decade should be considered as owned lock, stock and barrel by Donnie Darko. That aside, the trailer had a fairly intriguing vibe.

This second trailer omits the song, thankfully, and is a bit more straightforward. It gets into a lot less plot, jumping in when things are already going off the rails in a small town. There’s more of a slasher vibe to this cut, which I’m guessing is a deliberate move to skew the film as something more simple than it actually is. Read More »

The Crazies Movie Trailer

the_crazies_trailer_1

Whomever edited that great ‘No Signal’ montage of cell phone failure in horror movies did so too soon. There’s a primo example of it right here in the new trailer for The Crazies, directed by Breck Eisner (Sahara director and Micheal Esiner’s son) and loosely based on George Romero‘s 1973 thriller. Perhaps very loosely based? Though there’s a definite Romero vibe to this trailer, the basic character set is a bit different from the original and the overall feel is (unsurprisingly) of a modern studio horror film rather than the independent, homegrown original.
