HILARIOUS SECOND TRAILER FOR "HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA"! "DAREDEVIL" GETS A REBOOT! JAMIE BELL & KATE MARA IN "FIGHTING JACOB" ROMCOM

Now, you know, that beside being one of web's leading spots for all things epic, HOLLYWOOD SPY is also a huge supporter of romcoms :) They bring sunshine to our lives. And here's a new one according to "Variety": Jamie Bell and Kate Mara will headline FIGHTING JACOB, in which Bell will play the title role of Jacob "The Manic Maniac" Rosenthal, an up-and-coming boxer whose extreme OCD is the key to his success in the ring. After a devastating breakup with Mara's character, he's forced to evaluate his many neuroses and whether or not he can be truly happy and a great fighter at the same time. We've seen Bell recently in  MAN ON A LEDGE and THE ADVENTURES OF TIN TIN and he is currently shooting the apocalyptic SNOW PIERCER with Chris Evans and Octavia Spencer. And as you remember Jamie Bell has shaped his body to perfection for his role in Roman epic THE EAGLE alongside Channing Tatum, so he won't have problems playing a boxer.
HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
Well, it was only to be expected. After reboots of all possible superhero flicks (the latest one being this summer's SPIDERMAN reboot, and then the SUPERMAN reboot
next year with Henry Cavill) DAREDEVIL is the next in line to get some new groove. According to "Deadline", with the early success of THE AVENGERS in Europe, Marvel and 20th Century Fox have hired a newcomer David James Kelly to pen the reboot. The story will apparently be based on "Born Again" comic book, which finds the Kingpin uncovering blind lawyer Matt Murdoch's red-suited alter ego, and using that information to destroy him. However the filming itself probably won't happen any time soon, since first in line are the new sequel to X-MEN and a reboot of THE FANTASTIC FOUR! As you remember Daredevil was played by Ben Affleck and Kingpin by Colin Farell, and both were rather horrid in their roles.

HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA
In the trailer department, I have the second trailer and the second poster for hilarious animated flick HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA which
will hit cinemas this September set in Dracula's lavish five-stake resort, where monsters and their families can live it up, free from meddling from the human world. But here's a little known fact about Dracula: he is not only the Prince of Darkness, he is also a dad. Over protective of his teenage daughter, Mavis, Dracula fabricates tales of elaborate dangers to dissuade her adventurous spirit. As a haven for Mavis, he opens the Hotel Transylvania, where his daughter and some of the world's most famous monsters - Frankenstein and his bride, the Mummy, the Invisible Man, a family of werewolves, and more - can kick back in safety and peace. For Dracula, catering to all of these legendary monsters is no problem - but his world could come crashing down when one ordinary guy stumbles on the hotel and takes a shine to Mavis. Adam Sandler will give his voice to Dracula, Kevin James is Frankenstein, Fran Drescher is his bride :),  David Spade is Quasimodo, Steve Buscemi and Molly Shannon are married werewolves and Cee-Lo Green is Mummy!

  1. Is it possible Adam Sandler can be funny again? Since his movies have sucked lately I am half expecting him to be the next Daredevil.... and make the Daredevil with Affleck look like the Godfather!

  2. Good gravy, reboots of Daredevil and the Fantastic Four!!!!!!

  3. I'm a bit disturbed that they have the same guy that directed TWILIGHT: ECLIPSE directing this DAREDEVIL reboot. Any thoughts on casting? And by thoughts, I mean preferences.

    Also...Colin Farrell played Bullseye in the DAREDEVIL movie. Kingpin was played by Michael Clarke Duncan.

  7. Daredevil is a rather disappointing superhero. I hated Affleck in the role but am not sure anyone else can do better.

  9. You got a movie fact wrong Dez, oh the shame, mixing villians. Duncan played the Kingpin, he was the only one in the whole damn movie fitting of the role. Besides him being black, which made many fan boys scream bloody murder, I wouldn't want to offend the fanboys..lol..anyway not surprising, another damn reboot or a superhero movies, Blade will surely come as well, pathetic.

    And a lovey dovey one with ocd haha I can relate to the ocd part at least rather well. Hotel Transylvania doesn't seem like it will be bad, but then it is adam sandler so who knows.

    1. I know Sandler can be really hit or miss, but I think this one is going to work cat. And leave poor Dezzie alone about making a mistake, you're as freak of nature, a mistake that somehow was allowed to live. You, cat, are the poster child for abortion.

      I know, Pat, I cover that up in the comment with Josh! And you know that the fanboys can eat my shorts any time :) I believe FLASH will be one of the superheroes to get their own film, and it's possible that with the success of AVENGERS, The Hulk will get its 100th reboot even though I don't know a single person who cares about him :)

      Delete
    3. @Annzie
      it will work since it's not his own film, but an animated one.
      But we do love our cat even though he's a little freak :)

      Delete
    4. I know we do love him Dez, but the Alliance must not be seen to be too lenient with him.

      Delete
    5. he will most probably use it against us, as he did whenever we praised his Canada... he is ebil, he truly is...

      Delete
    6. Yeah I think the Flash will get one and that stupid Hulk better now get another one. The first one was one of the most awful movies ever and the second better, but that didn't take much.

      True, since it isn't his own it may be good. I used to like all his movies but lately he's just got to complete crap. Plus it's animated, so it should be good.

      Pffft the freak of nature is always the one to win, don't you know that?

      Delete
    7. there were even talks of that black superhero which has his own kingdom in Africa (is is Black Panther or something) getting his own movie... and the Antman too.
      I'd rather see FLASH, SILVER SURFER, WONDER WOMAN and such elegant heroes on the big screen.

    8. The Alliance must go to red level alert status darling. The cat just spiked my pageview by 47 hits in just a few minutes. He's openly ridiculing me and promising to cheat. Gather the penguins it's time to strike a blow for good taste!

  11. I've somehow never read Daredevil and I don't know how it slipped through my childhood cracks so I don't have an opinion on it.

    Just judging by the trailers you've had up here of Hotel Transylvania I think hit will be a hit. We do need to laugh in this crazy world these days.

    1. I've never read it either, but we didn't have much superhero comics here. We mostly read Disney's cartoons and I read PRINCE VALIANT, MANDRAKE, ASTERIX AND OBELIX, LUCKY LUKE and such...

      Delete
    2. I'm not really surprised to hear that Dez. But you have been exposed to great literature and you translate all those English language novels into five languages. I think you did pretty well without comics.

      Delete
    3. I don't translate into five languages, dahling :) Although there is a habit of Croatian, Bosnian and Montenegrin publishing houses stealing my translations (since our languages are almost identical) changing the dialect a bit and publishing them under the name of some of their translators. It's a crazy thing but we are mostly helpless about it :(

      Delete
    4. That's horrible. So that means you're not earning a revenue off of your own work. Oooh that makes me mad. How many languages do you speak darling?

      Delete
    5. I never get revenues, Annzie, I get paid a certain sum after I finish the translation and that's it.
      I can't tell :) I've never revealed the number to anyone :) I admit to fluently speaking only two languages, and I know a lot of words and expressions from a number of others. Here we do not count Croatian, Montenegrin, Bosnian, since those all the same as Serbian.

  12. Daredevil reboot??? I would think something has to be mildly successful before a reboot.

    Although Hotel Transylvania looks great.

  18. Sigh...

    There are so many good comic book characters, so why do they have to keep rebooting the same old ones? Personally I was a fan of Daredevil (if only because physically he was a good match), but I agree that the movie sucked. A FF reboot is just downright stupid since the originals did so well. Of course, they're rebooting Spidey with a cool kid who doesn't look the least bit geeky, so I guess they are just ignoring anything truly related to the comics in their pursuit for endless dollars.

    Okay, rant over. I'll go take a valium I guess and calm back down.

    1. Oh, Eric, you think Andrew Garfield is a cool kid? :) I don't think so. But he is a horrible horrible choice for the role, Tobey was nice enough and I don't see the point of rebooting the franchise which was already successful :( But that's modern Hollywood.

  20. HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA looks adorable and I still like Adam Sandler. I confess though, I haven't seen "Jack and Jill" yet...I'm waiting for it to come out on HBO. I guess I just admire that he did such a great job in Reign Over Me. Plus, he spends most of his time living in the northeast US, not in Hollywood.

  22. Well, I suppose you're the expert, so I'll just take your word for it. :D I think th problem with Ben was he just didn't look good in that suit. Too slow, too heavy. Oh well.
