There’s been a lot of news lately surrounding the upcoming screen adaptation of The Hunger Games, a series of books by Suzanne Collins. I thought it might be nice to provide a one-stop shop here at Grizzly Bomb for any of you readers that may be interested in the franchise.
It’s been a little while since we’ve heard any news about Captain America: The First Avenger, so I was happily surprised to see 3 new character teaser posters released. They feature Chris Evans as Steve Rogers/ Captain America, Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter, and Hugo Weaving as Johann Schmidt/ Red Skull.
Awesome. Mustafa has made no secret of his desire to play Marvel’s Luke Cage in the long rumored yet never confirmed movie adaptation. He released this pic not too long ago:
It seemed like the casting for the upcoming Oz movie was going well. We have James Franco, Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams and Rachel Wiesz all playing characters in the movie which is set to be released in March of 2013. Now there is one more casting addition for the role of the Wizard’s (James Franco) assistant that will be filled by Scrubs star Zach Braff according to IGN. Sadly I am not a fan of Scrubs, and I find Zach Braff pretty annoying, but that is just my opinion. I’m sure there are plenty of people out there who love him and are ecstatic about this news but I could just care less. I think the last movie I saw him in was The Ex with Jason Bateman and that was back in 2006.
Hopefully his part is so small that we don’t have to hear him talk too much. However that might be a bad thing for people who are actually fans of his. Are there any out there or do you dislike him as much as I do? Or maybe you have no idea who the hell Zach Braff is.
And I thought Piranhas in 3D were enough, now we get a shark? It’s a mystery to me why no one has ever tried to do a scary shark movie since Jaws, sure they could never hope to come close to the perfection that was Jaws, but something genuinely scary would have been good. Instead the closest thing we have had is Deep Blue Sea which was painfully mediocre, and a slew of terrible (Yet hilarious) made for SyFY movies such as Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus, Blue Demon and Sharktopus.
From the director of two Final Destination movies and Snakes on a Plane, the plot of Shark Night 3D is very basic. A group of young adults go to a lake house that is located on a small island to party hard for the weekend, but little do they know is that the waters are inexplicably populated by a shark or sharks. Hmmm… must be a salt water lake. Gore and chaos ensue as they try to get off of the island. Check out the trailer below:
I know it looks like the generic ‘creature feature’ horror movie, and the story is ridiculous, but I actually have hope for this one to be genuinely creepy. I’ve always had an uneasy feeling being in water so deep I can’t see what’s below me, so seeing sharks in a lake where they aren’t supposed to be is kind of unsettling. Not that it could ever happen… right?
And thankfully they didn’t go the Piranha route and intentionally make it ridiculous with a bombardment of old washed up actors. The only recognizable actor I saw in the trailer was Joel David Moore from movies such as Avatar, Dodgeball and Grandma’s Boy and the TV show Bones.
So here’s to hoping that we get something scary out of Shark Night and not just another movie like Piranha that should have skipped the theater and hopped straight onto SyFy. I’m sensing something that will at least outdo Deep Blue Sea and their stupid smart sharks that looked like inflatable rubber pool toys.
