HARRISON FORD BACK FOR BLADE RUNNER?

Ridley Scott says it may be so! The original writer, Hampton Fancher, is back, and according to The Playlist, this version will be a sequel. Harrison, won't be starring, but he's gotta have an appearance. How can you not have him in it at least somewhere?

I've been a huge Blade Runner fan for years, and have caught numerous midnight screenings in 70mm... it's an experience. But the anniversary edition Bluray and the FINAL CUT, is my favorite of them all. It's a pristine transfer, and the most compelling cut of the story.

ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER


Here's the red-band trailer for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. It's age restricted... after watching it, I'm not really sure why. But I have to ask this question... would this film be more interesting in Abe wasn't the title character?

But then again, how do you sell a period piece vampire slayer movie that's not an established legend like Van Helsing?  You turn the former president into a ruthless vampire killer.

It seems the Asylum has already jumped on board with Abraham Lincoln Vs. Zombies, set to hit streets May 29th.

As fun as all this sounds, I can't help but think that Bill Clinton vs. Bikini Vampire Zombies would be even more entertaining. Ah, wishful thinking...

ANOTHER PROMETHEUS CLIP: WATCH AT YOUR OWN RISK


www.PrometheusForum.net by PrometheusForum
If you missed the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, here's another Prometheus clip that was aired. I'm not going to watch this clip... I'm going to save it for the theater. I want the experience to be completely unspoiled.

I hate when you run into a someone who's already seen a movie you haven't... and they blather on about all of the plot points and the end, even though you told them at the front of the conversation that you hadn't seen it and don't want to hear any details. What's wrong with those people?

So, watch this clip at your own risk.

GARY OLDMAN JOINS ROBOCOP CAST

This is starting to get interesting... Gary Oldman joins the Robocop cast as Norton (the scientist responsible for Robocop).

Oldman is also in line to reprise his role as Commissioner Gordon in the Dark Knight Rises. The actor is definitely on a role, and has acquired the title of top-grossing actor of all time, with such notable series such as Harry Potter and Batman to his credit.

I remember watching and interview with Oldman over a decade ago, where he mentioned that because of his character acting nature, Hollywood wasn't quite sure what to do with him. Looks like they figured it out.

THEY LIVE at the ALAMO DRAFTHOUSE in 35MM

"I'm here to chew bubble gum and kick ass... and I'm all out of bubble gum!" One of the best movie lines ever. Don't miss this special screening of THEY LIVE in 35mm at the Alamo Drafthouse this Sunday night! Free sunglasses for all attendees so you can see the truth.

This is John Carpenters anti-consumerism masterpiece, that is just as relevant today as it was when it was released.

Both Rowdy Roddy Piper and Keith David were at Texas Frightmare Weekend this year, and I've got to say, they were the coolest cats around. Check out this epic fight scene:

THE LOVED ONES: ALAMO DRAFTHOUSE HOUSTON


The Loved Ones premiered recently at SXSW, and is now having a special screening at the Alamo Drafthouse Mason in Houston. Don't miss the midnight screening Friday June 1st - but be sure to arrive early for a special introduction to the film.

Lola hosts her own torture prom, after spurned by the object of her desire, Brent. I'll bet Brent wishes he would have said yes when Lola asked him to the Prom. Puppy love gone horribly wrong, in this violent, horror/thriller.

There are a few tickets left, so hurry before they sell out.

TOM CRUISE TO STAR IN MAGNIFICENT SEVEN REMAKE

Tom Cruise will star in the MGM remake of the Magnificent Seven. No director is onboard yet, so there is still time to lobby the studio for that directing job.

Cruise says it won't happen for quite some time yet, and his plate seems pretty full. Rock of Ages, Oblivion, All You Need is Kill, Van Helsing, and Paramount is after him for Top Gun 2.

MGM is currently busy with their RoboCop remake as well as Carrie later this year. It seems this is comfortable territory for MGM, as they have been primarily engaged in remakes lately. In today's marketplace, studios are looking for properties with built in audiences.

Based on Akira Kurosawa's 1954 classic Seven Samurai, the Magnificent Seven centers around a group of gunman hired to protect a Mexican village from bandits.

SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR

Sin City 2 is finally happening with Frank Miller & Robert Rodriguez directing - set to begin production in the spring with an October 4, 2013 release date. Jessica Alba, Mickey Rourke, and Michael Madsen are onboard.

Rodriguez says he held back stylistically on the first one, but promises to push this one closer to the original graphic novels. "It's going to shock and surprise people," Rodriguez says.

Angelina Jolie is rumored to play femme fatal Ava Lord, but so far no confirmation.

Before Sin City gets rolling, Rodriguez will bring back Danny Trejo for Machete Kills. Rodriguez is tight lipped about the plot and claims all the rumors online are strategic misinformation, but the villain will be played by Mel Gibson. This could be interesting...

THE WOLVERINE: MORE BAD ASSERY!

Slated to begin production in August,  FOX is claiming this to be "the true berserker, bad ass Wolverine!"

Directed by James Mangold (3:10 to Yuma - which was awesome), Wolverine will shoot in Australia and Japan, and is likely to be PG-13, unless there is a convincing reason to move to and R. I personally vote for R - but then again PG-13 movies have a wider audience.

What do you want to see... a harder more violent Wolverine? Or a tamed down PG-13 version?

BATTLE OF THE BATTLESHIPS

Avengers is still going strong at the box office, and projections have targeted over $60 million for it's 3rd weekend, while Battleship is expected to pull in only $35M, costing over $200M before marketing.

Universal is currently suing the masters of the mockbuster, The Asylum, over their homage "American Battleship." Ironically, the film is set to air on Universal owned SyFy this month. A quick trip to the Asylum website reveals the film has been changed to American Warships.

Which movie will you watch?

TOM CRUISE SINGS: POUR SOME SUGAR ON ME


You won't believe your ears. Yes it's true, Tom Cruise sings a cover of the Def Leppard 80's hit Pour Some Sugar On Me. It's not half bad.

Part of the upcoming musical Rock of Ages hitting theaters next month, which also stars Alec Baldwin, Paul Giamatti and Bryan Cranston. This could be awesome, or a train wreck. Either way, I'm sure it's worth watching.

Is this a mega-hit, or epic fail?

20th Century Fox
