Being the Chosen one gets you chicks apparently

There’s a new international trailer out for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. It is short by it’s still pretty cool. Make sure you watch this trailer quickly before WB yanks it off of youtube again (and also before you read this as it contains spoilers). You get to see Dumbledore and Harry entering the cave where the locket is, and you get to see more of Dumbledore facing off against the Inferi. The original trailer is embedded in this one in the middle, which shows you just how crappy and short it really was. Harry also is running through a field towards a house that’s on fire, which I’m pretty sure is the Gaunt shack, but who knows. Ron gets kissed by a pretty busty Lavender Brown, which I’m sure will make all of the fan girls uber jealous. We get to see more memory tubes as well as Slughorn sucking the memory out of his head in order to give it to Harry (I’m excited to see how the lucky potion scene will turn out in the movie). Dumbledore reveals that Harry is “The Chosen One” which I’m sure is going to excite all the lame people that haven’t actually finished the books. The best part of the trailer is at the end though. Some random girl is oggling Harry and he oggles back until Hermoine yells at him saying that “she’s only interested in you because you’re the chosen one” and he says “But I am the chosen one” and she smacks him with a rolled up paper. It’s pretty great and makes the really fast cut scenes in the rest of the trailer worth it. Oh and btw SNAPE KILLS DUMBLEDORE lol.

Superman is gonna be emo now

August 22, 2008 at 1:49 pm (Movie, Random, Superheroes) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Warner Bros. has announced that they’re going to be making Superman not crappy this time around reintroducing Superman. It’s supposed to be a similar situation to how The Incredible Hulk was a replacement for Hulk. *sigh* I hope they do it right this time. We don’t need a box set of superhero movies that sucked coming out in the future. It’d be on “I Love the New Millennium” and I’d want to help make fun of it. Since Superman flopped in 2006 there is no Batman vs. Superman (It was originally planned for Christmas of this year or sometime in 2009) or Justice League movie (Thank goodness!) coming out for awhile. I’m think they’re trying to give people time to forget the last Superman movie in order to help build up hype for the new one later.

This time around Warner Bros. Pictures Group President “…wants his next pack of superhero movies to be bathed in the same brooding tone as ‘The Dark Knight.’ Creatively, he sees exploring the evil side to characters as the key to unlocking some of Warner Bros.’ DC properties.”-comingsoon.net. By “DC properties” I think he meant making a good plot for the movie 😉 (You know like Marvel movies do except for that horrible horrible X-Men 3 movie where Cyclops got killed in the first 30 seconds for no good reason besides the fact that Brett Ratner wanted him to. I betcha Bryan Singer wishes he didn’t drop it to make Superman Returns now, but I digress.) How the heck do you show Superman as evil?
I’m betting they’re gonna:

A. Copycat The Dark Knight by killing off the love interest Louis Lane
B. Find some red Kryptonite like in Smallville and make sure it gets stuck in him somehow

Wasn’t Superman emo enough in Superman Returns? I guess not. I’m gonna look for some Kryptonite razor blades to give them so he can go cut himself to make the movie better this time around.

Fans might be tearing up about Watchmen soon.

August 19, 2008 at 12:22 pm (Movie, Random) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , )

I found an interesting article on Topless Robot today saying how Fox is trying to sue Warner Bros. for making Watchmen. “As big sis Nikki Finke reports, Fox—who for years sat on their old Watchmen movie rights while everyone in hollywood took a stab at making the film—has suddenly decided that Warner Bros.’ upcoming film directed by Zack Snyder is infringing on their Watchmen movie rights, and are suing to get the new version from being released….”-Topless Robot. I always think it’s stupid when a company tries to pull something like this. It’s like way to wait until the movie is completed and then try to stop it from ever being seen. Let’s have them throw millions of dollars down the toilet and then give Fox some more money. That sounds good right 😉 ? I do think it’s kind of ironic though how this just happened right after Warner Bros. decided to postpone the upcoming Harry Potter Movie.

Is it just me or does that guy look shockingly like Batman to anyone else?

WB wants Harry Potter to be the next Dark Knight

August 18, 2008 at 3:07 pm (Movie, Random) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

By now I’m sure you’ve heard of Warner Bros. pushing back the release date of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince to July 2009. I’m definitely not happy about the push especially since that’ll mean it’s been 2 years since the last film. Why’d they bother putting out the trailer this “early”? They’d better not do the same thing for part 1 of the Deathly Hallows movie because it’s currently scheduled for November 2010. I’m not so worried about part 2 of the 7th movie since it’s schedule for May of 2011. I still don’t understand how movie producers are just realizing now that summer films make more money especially when it comes to kid audiences. I mean hello summer vacation!

There were some kinda dumb rumors going around that WB didn’t want to tarnish Harry’s image since Daniel Radcliffe is on Broadway this fall for Equus. This doesn’t make any since though considering he already performed it in London last year. It’s obvious that WB saw the success of The Dark Knight and we’re like “oh, we should do that again” a-duh! I mean as of last weekend (Exactly a month from it’s release date today) it’s still at number 2 in the U.S. That’s pretty ridiculous if you ask me.
