Oz: The Great and Powerful

Walt Disney Pictures has debuted a new poster for Oz: The Great and Powerful, the first of three one-sheets that will combine to form a super triptych poster!

This image gives us our first look at The Wicked Witch of the West, so check it out below.

However, it isn’t clear if Theodora or Evanora turns into this green-faced character. Perhaps the next image will clear things up.

Oz: The Great and Powerful is directed by Sam Raimi, comes to theaters on March 8th, 2013 and stars James Franco, Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams, Abigail Spencer, Zach Braff and Joey King.

John Cusack Set To Lead Stephen King’s CELL

CELL Stephen King - John Cusack

The storm has passed and the mad dash through the neighborhood in pursuit of Snickers and Skittles is tonight. Many kids will be missing out on tonight’s Trick or Treating, but the show must go on.  And, John Cusack is getting back into the Stephen King business, signing to star in an adaptation of Cell, King’s take on the zombie apocalypse genre.

King himself co-wrote the screenplay with The Last House On The Left screenwriter Adam Alleca in a story where cell phone signals wipe the brain of any humanity, turning people into aggressive killers and a father who hits the road to find his wife and son.

The 1408 star Cusack will also reteam with 1408 executive Richard Saperstein who will produce Cell through his Genre Company alongside colleagues Brian Witten and Shara Kay. They are currently looking for directors.

Saperstein said:

I’m thrilled to be working with Stephen and John again. Cell is an intelligent psychological thriller that delivers on both a visceral and emotional level.

Cargo CEO Marina Grasic added:

Stephen King is a legendary storyteller and the master at this genre. We believe the reteaming of King with Cusack is a winning combination that audiences around the world will want to see.

Cargo Entertainment arranged financing on Cell.

Before filming Cell, Cusack will star in Due Process, which is yet another thriller set in the world of finance, set to begin filming in January 2013.

The Cell novel is described as follows:

Artist Clayton Riddell had been in Boston negotiating a successful deal to sell his comic book project. His joy at finally hitting it big is shattered by an event called The Pulse which causes all those who were using their cell phones at the time of The Pulse to become zombies attacking and killing anyone in their way. Fortunately for Clay, he does not own a cell phone. In the panic to get out of Boston and find his way home to his wife and son in Maine, he is joined by Tom McCourt, a man he meets in the meleé immediately following The Pulse and a young girl, Alice, who they rescue from being killed by one of the “crazies.” The story follows their terrifying journey, avoiding capture—and worse—by the “crazies” who are beginning to “flock” and are led by one they call Raggedy Man as they attempt to reach Maine and a place called Kashwak which they hope will be their salvation.

Benedict Cumberbatch to Play The Beatles’ Manager in a New Biopic

Benedict Cumberbatch

Who would have thought that a 36-year-old British actor, mainly seen in ‘stuffed-shirt’ roles on film and TV throughout the last decade, would go boom with 2010 reinvention of Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes tale!

Yes, I’m talking about Benedict Cumberbatch, who went from “zero (figuratively, of course) to having his own ‘Cumberbitches’ fan-army” and a neck-full schedule for couple of years in advance – we’ve seen him in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and Parade’s End, we’ll hear him in The Hobbit as Smaug, and we’ll see him in Star Trek Into Darkness, Twelve Years a Slave and August: Osage County.

Also, there is talk (and we reported earlier) that he might land a role of Julian Assange in a biopic, and now he’s signed on to play the Beatles’ manager Brian Epstein in a new biopic, which will be scripted by Todd Graff.

The film will focus on Epstein and his secretive gambling and drug addiction, which caused him to pass away of an accidental overdose in 1967. The film will be directed by Paul McGuigan (Lucky Number Slevin, and also directed several episodes of Sherlock) and produced by Tom Hanks.

Now there’s only the small problem of finances, so when that is solved and Cumberbatch is finished with the third season of Sherlock (starts shooting early next year), we can expect it to begin rolling out – probably not until the mid-2013, so stay tuned!

First Look At HATCHET III, Our Way To Say Happy Halloween!

Hatchet III

Hey guys! We have some pretty cool & bloody images from the upcoming Hatchet 3 movie, and yes, you’re welcome! Guess this is the perfect day for us to continue the saga of Crowley, the Bayou Butcher, who first made his gruesome mark in 2007′s Hatchet. That guy sure deserves our full attention, especially ’cause it’s Halloween, so let’s se what he’s got for us this time!

Once again, Adam Green stands behind the script, but he’s not directing the third movie. That’s BJ McDonnell‘s job this time. Just for a record, McDonnell is no stranger when it comes to this horror movie – he’s Hatchet and Hatchet II cameraman after all, so we have nothing to worry about.

Hatchet III Image 01

So, in Hatchet 3, we will basically have a chance to watch Marybeth Dunston seeking revenge against Victor Crowley, played by Kane Hodder, who killed her friends, her father and brother. In other words Danielle Harris is back and she will try to find the way to end the voodoo curse that has left Crowley’s ghost terrorizing Honey Island Swamp for decades.

Hatchet III Image 04

On the other hand, Derek Mears is also on board to play a brooding, pompous SWAT team leader who is sent in to contain the carnage strewn about the haunted swamp.

Hatchet III Image 02

Caroline Williams sure looks scared on that first picture, but don’t get confused – she actually plays a fast-talking journalist who fancies herself an expert on the legend of supernatural stalker Crowley.

Hatchet III Image 03

The rest of the Hutchet 3 cast also includes Zach Galligan, Cody Blue Snider, Sean Whalen and Jason Trost.

And, just as an additional gift for you, here’s what director McDonnell had to say about the new death scenes:

They are out of control. There are a lot of fast stuff that happens and then there are some kills that are just kind of mean. I mean killing anyone is mean, but Crowley is worse in this with some of his kills. There is a side of him in this that is very dark and it makes you go – Wow, that is messed up

Sounds good or what?

Let us know what you think, and make sure you stay tuned for more updates (yeah, I know, the whole thing is still without an official release date, which sucks!)
