The Toxic Avenger, the tastefully tasteless Troma Pictures bi-product, and later excellent off-Broadway musical (which I totally saw one time!) is getting the old revamp. Except, of course, as a kid-friendly book/TV/movie/toy franchise. With an enviromentally friendly theme. You win this time, Gore.

Dinner For Schmucks has a trailer! I'm not very impressed! (seriously, I could care less)

io9 has a lovely article on internet spoilers.

Andrew Lincoln joins much-anticipated-by-me TV awesome The Walking Dead. He'll be starring as a small-town sheriff who has to protect survivors of a zombie! apocalypse!

Like the 80s? Well, you're not the only one. The Grand Holy Remake Generator has chosen It's next offering, in the form of Val Kilmer-vehicle Real Genius. Gracias, O Wise One.

Oh, wait. It is feeling generous today. It has also given us Fright Night, the old vamp movie about a horror-obsessed teenager who's new neighbor is a vampire. At least Anton Yelchin, aka Charlie Bartlett, aka 'Kidnapped'-to-Kidnapped person from Alpha Dog, aka CHEKHOV!

Javier Bardem and Jason Statham play two soldiers in a crime family, in "Potzdamer Platz." Mickey Rourke is in there too.

Bryan Cranston and Ben Kingsley are up for "A Birder's Guide To Everything", synopsis: 'After spotting what he thinks is an extinct duck, high school sophomore and bird enthusiast David Portnoy persuades his two dorky buddies and the "new girl in school" to join him on a quest to locate the mysterious bird. What begins as a simple and straightforward mission becomes a coming-of-age adventure for all involved, particularly David, who must come to terms with some painful aspects of his family life.'

Did I ever say anything about 'Last Exit Through The Gift Shop'? I think I did...

Bill Condon pushes aside, among other things, a Richard Pryor biopic, for Twilight. Maybe.

I Am Love, with Lady Swinton speaking Italian, has an American trailer:

Alicia Keys will produce and star in an adaption of "The House at Sugar Beach". THe only time I've seen her act was in Smokin' Aces, but I'm vaguely aware of The Secret Life of Bees, so fine.

'Cabin in the Woods' will have monsters.

Michelle Williams up for Noah Baumbach's new film 'The Emperor's Children'.

Here are posters for lady-jail B-martial arts movie, 'Lucky Ho' has posters.

And, finally:
