Two new  clips for you today, people, the first being a very short 10 second one from Ang Lee's long awaited LIFE OF PI movie adaptation of Yann Martel's famous novel. Opening this November and starring Suraj Sharma, Tobey Maguire, Gérard Depardieu, 
Irrfan Khan, this coming-of-age survival tale revolves around a boy who is the lone survivor of a sunken freighter and winds up sharing a lifeboat with a hyena, an injured zebra, an orangutan and a hungry Bengal tiger.

HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
One of our favourite directors John Madden (whose recent THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL with Judi Dench earned stunning $100 million around the world) is going to direct MURDER MYSTERY which is being described as an, "affectionate deconstruction" of an Agatha Christie-style whodunit, which centres on an American couple travelling overseas. "Deadline" reports that Charlize Theron, who is currently at the peak of her career, is negotiating about taking the lead role! 

RESIDENT EVIL RETRIBUTION
The second clip for today is a new trailer for sf action RESIDENT EVIL: RETRIBUTION a new part in the saga which has been earning more money with each new instalment. Milla Jovovich again plays Alice, alongsdie
Michelle Rodriguez, Boris Kodjoe, and Sienna Guillory from the old cast along with new additions Bingbing Li and Johann Urb. Kevin Durand and Oded Fehr are also starring. The Umbrella Corporation’s deadly T-virus continues to ravage the Earth, transforming the global population into legions of the flesh eating Undead. The human race’s last and only hope, Alice, awakens in the heart of Umbrella's most clandestine operations facility and unveils more of her mysterious past as she delves further into the complex. Without a safe haven, Alice continues to hunt those responsible for the outbreak; a chase that takes her from Tokyo to New York, Washington, D.C. and Moscow, culmi-
nating in a mind-blowing revelation that will force her to rethink everything that she once thought to be true. Aided by newfound allies and familiar friends, Alice must fight to survive long enough to escape a hostile world on the brink of oblivion. The countdown has begun.

  1. I haven't seen any of the Resident Evil movies but I have played the video game. With little ones running around, not many horror movies make it in this house!

  8. Resident Evil part 1 was ok, kinda new , though zombie story, it was different but the sequel watered down piss. Not interested.

    Life of PI - maybe I could for the different plot, hope they dont disappoint.

  9. I really REALLY wish they'd stop bastardizing Resident Evil. It's bad enough the games are starting to follow suit an be completely action oriented.

    1. Totally agree, they missed the mark with every single one of the movies. They are all a disgrace to the resident evil name. This one will be no different.

      they are earning more money with each new sequel though, every part had between 50 and 100 million $ more earnings than the previous one

  12. Of course, murder mystery is just what I like. Can't wait to see more of that one. Life of Pi looks interesting too.

  14. Another Resident Evil movie? Are you serious? They aren't even that good.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Resident Evil, sadly I sat through them all. Not much to be had with them at all. And don't see how they make more and more, that last one was crap. Guess people are just getting dumber. No surprise there.

    1. I'm not sure either, but MEN IN BLACK III had nice earnings last weekend, which means I give up when it comes to understanding the workings of boxoffice sucsess :)

  16. Life of Pi is a must see for me as The Spawn and I read the book. From the teaser it looks like they are going to be able to bring this book to life, which would seem impossible.

    Resident Evil just isn't my thing. Didn't like the first one and didn't bother watching any of the others.

    1. you know, I keep hearing from other people too that LIFE OF PI seems like a very difficult book to adapt.

  17. I adored the novel Life of Pi. That teaser scared me a bit, though.

    I love a good mystery, so I'll probably be seeing Charlize's movie.
