Doghouse is released in the UK on Friday 12th June, 2009.
Whatever you think about the decision to continue the franchise PA (post-arnie), you’ve got to admit Warner Bros have got some balls.
Tasking the salvation of one of the most popular and revered franchises in sci-fi history to a director who is accused of being unable to spell his own name (McG), let alone point a camera, was an incredibly risky move.
And while he hasn’t made a real Terminator movie (we’ll get onto that later), what has dragged itself out of the hyped-up, media-obsessed mire, is a rip-roaring Tribute to Arnie…
To some people great films are like really annoying spots – they just can’t be left alone.
So it seems that another classic of its genre, Alien, is to join a long list of recent remakes and reboots which have been milked of their creative puss.
But this might not just be the hatchet job that has Alien fans quaking in their boots, as it has emerged that Ridley Scott, brother Tony and Michael Costigan are attached as producers and Carl Rinsch, who has previously worked on commercials and music videos, is slated to direct.
Rumour also has it that rather than being a simple, pointless remake or reboot this is to be an origins tale.
So fear not, you may well end up being scared again.
Far be it from me to attempt to paraphrase the worldly wonderings of that most famously beardy of bards, but I’m fairly sure Shakespeare once mumbled: “All the world’s a stage, and we’re all playing parts.”
Full of timelessly romantic prose and wistful philosophising he may have been, but you can’t help but feel he didn’t quite make that little ditty actually rhyme. What a doofus…
The phrase ‘too much of a good thing’ is not one you will often hear a producer utter.
So long as a show keeps on churning out the readies, they’re pretty much happy to take on the role of Scrooge McDuck and swim about in a pool of money leaving the business of editorial integrity to the Huey, Dewey, and Louies of the world.
With this in mind, the success of Slumdog Millionaire isn’t just going to pass by like a bad smell. Right now, in a boardroom somewhere, executive types will be sat round a table looking at a spider diagram that reads ‘sequel… how?’ It can only be a matter of time before we see more quiz shows hitting the big screen.
Next time you are at the cinema prepare to see a trailer starring Noel Edmonds with the tagline …What the hell happened to Noel’s House Party?!
In a film industry saturated with countless cop-out remakes and where originality is thin on the ground, Fermat’s Room takes inspiration from a wide variety of modern cult and horror – including Saw, My Little Eye and (i’m not kidding) Jim Henson’s Labyrinth.
Yet, the overall product is like chewing cardboard – mildly amusing, slightly quirky, but of absolutely no worldly value – cinematic or otherwise. It was like the film equivalent of Holly Willoughby – snooze-worthy to the max?!
On his latest expedition, Dr. Rick Marshall (Ferrell) is sucked into a space-time vortex alongside his research assistant (Friel) and a redneck survivalist (McBride). In this alternate universe, the trio make friends with a primate named Chaka (Taccone), their only ally in a world full of dinosaurs and other fantastic creatures. Can they all make it back to our world alive, and if so: Will Dr. Marshall can go from zero to hero with his discoveries?
Land of the Lost is released in the UK on Friday 31st July, 2009.

Will Ferrell has seemingly confirmed the sequel to one of most idolised Fratpack films ever. Ron Burgundy is back!
STV reports that whilst discussing the possibility of a sequel, Ferrell said:
“Yeah, we’re trying to figure out when and how we should do that. In fact, I think next week we’re going to meet with all the guys and see if we can actually pull this off.”
If your brain has stopped bouncing around like a hyperactive skittles-ridden puppy, then you’ll realise there are a couple of hang-ups.
Firstly, with each of the supporting Fratpack members having graduated past comedy alumni to eccentric genius, it’ll be harder to reunite the original group (Steve Carrell and Paul Rudd).
Plus, with this much expectation, is there actually anyway a sequel can ever match up to the original?
To be honest, the office is divided, but if we get some more ‘I Love Lamp’, ‘Tits McGee’ or ‘Smelly Pirate Hooker’ soundbytes, we’ll be happy.
The much anticipated next comedy outing of real life bessie mates Simon Pegg and Nick Frost has picked up pace with the news that some of comedy’s most popular talents are to join in the fun.
The British pair’s latest opus, Paul- about an alien which has escaped from a military base – is now to be voiced by none other than Superbad writer Seth Rogan. And as if that wasn’t enough, Jason Bateman, Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader and Jane Lynch have also been added to the cast.
In the movie, Pegg and Frost play British geeks Graham and Clive who accompany an alien on a road trip across the States after he escapes from Area 51.
Although there is no word yet on the roles that Bateman, Wiig, Hader and Lynch will fill, their presence in the film has elevated anticipation for its release to fever pitch.
Shooting begins on the Greg Mottola-directed, Pegg/Frost-penned movie in June.
While we didn’t get to jetset off to Cannes, we did manage to nab an exclusive clip from Mr Pulp Fiction himself, Monsieur Quentin Tarantino!
Here’s a brief introduction to a never before seen clip from his buzz-heavy new movie, Inglourious Basterds….
In the first year of the German occupation of France, Shosanna Dreyfus (Melanie Laurent) witnesses the execution of her family at the hand of Nazi Colonel Hans Landa (Christoph Waltz). Shosanna narrowly escapes and flees to Paris where she forges a new identity as the owner and operator of a cinema.
Elsewhere in Europe, Lieutenant Aldo Raine (Brad Pitt) organizes a group of Jewish American soldiers to perform swift, shocking acts of retribution. Later known to their enemy as “the basterds,” Raine’s squad joins German actress and undercover agent Bridget von Hammersmark (Diane Kruger) on a mission to take down the leaders of the Third Reich. Fates converge under a cinema marquis, where Shosanna is poised to carry out a revenge plan of her own….
