The Ghouls All Came from Their Humble Abodes: Six Things You May Not Have Heard About This Week

By Cindy Davis | Seriously Random Lists | October 28, 2012 | Comments ()


I find the Important Stuff so you don't have to.

6. New Lincoln Photos Gave Us a Look at Spader, Holbrook, Haley and Pace.





Though it's difficult to tell whether Spielberg's take on the sixteenth President will be engaging, or War Horse: The People Version, he's certainly assembled an impeccable cast. Alongside Daniel Day Lewis are: Tommy Lee Jones, Sally Field, Hal Holbrook, John Hawkes, James Spader, Gregory Itzin, Jackie Earle Haley, David Strathairn, Joseph Gordon Levitt, Jared Harris, Lee Pace and S. Epatha Merkerson. If it all turns out a snore, Spielberg should be required to turn in his DGA card.

5. The Man with the Iron Fists Featurette Gave Us a Glimpse Behind the Scenes.

About all I can manage to say after watching that is, "Hot Damn!" The Man with the Iron Fists is directed by and stars RZA, costars Russell Crowe, Lucy Liu, Cung Le, Dave Bautista, Rick Yune and Jamie Chung, and opens November 2nd.

4. London's Comic-Con Kicked Off and "Doctor Who" Reigned Supreme.






Matt Smith and Caroline Skinner made an appearance and answered a few Series 7 questions.

3. We Got Another Peek at The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.

So, Martin Freeman is charming and Ian McKellan is...Ian McKellan. I'm off to the theater!

2. Details and Casting for Wally Pfister's Directorial Debut, Transcendence Emerged.


Christopher Nolan's cinematographer and protege has quietly been working on his own film project. While there are no plot details as yet, word is out shooting will take place in Los Angeles and feature three leads--one of whom is Johnny Depp. Pfister has made it known he's interested in Christian Bale playing another of the leads; that may or may not come to fruition based on Bale's availability. Nolan and his wife, Emma Thomas will both serve as executive producers.

1. Super Cool Clips from The American Scream Broke Out.

Directed by Michael Stephenson (Best Worst Movie), this documentary "follows three Halloween-obsessed households as they transform their homes into neighbor-terrifying supernatural wonderlands." The American Scream will air on the Chiller channel tonight at 8 pm EST (and at film festivals through November).

Cindy Davis dresses this way just to keep them at bay.

Weekend Comment Diversion: Been Caught Stealing | 5 Shows After Dark 10/28/12

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Wormer

    It has been too long since I've seen a kick ass bloody kung fu movie. If only there was this much awesome and gore in Kung Fu Panda...

  • TheOriginalMRod

    That is a good look for Spader, he should keep it.

  • spoobnooble

    Haunted houses are awesome.

    That is all.

  • Ash

    Spader and Pace? I shall never return from my bunk.

  • Natallica

    Lee Pace gives great grunge singer face

  • Mrs. Julien

    Dibs on Thorin Oakenshield. I'll look back, look back at him any time he wants.

  • Pants-are-a-must

    Don't you EVEN START, because the dibs war on Dwarf Aragorn have already started and they are bad.

  • Mrs. Julien

    The rules of dibs are very clear. I was here first and I called it. Also, SHOT GUN!

  • Mitchell Hundred

    Yes, let's all be excited about the Hobbit movies. I mean, it's not like there's ever been a massively successful, critically acclaimed trilogy of genre films whose director is motivated by greed to make a terrible prequel trilogy several years later, causing fans to hate and resent him for the rest of their lives.

  • Jezzer

    There's no way a fourth movie can be anything but awesome. Look at how great Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull turned out!

  • Quatermain

    Pay no attention to the downvotes, prophet is ever respected in his own country.

  • firedmyass

    Suht up, Meg.

  • Feeb

    Lincoln was precisely War Horse: The People Version.....same overblown cinematography, same tepid John Williams score, same gee golly what a miraculous horse storyline...but Daniel-Day Lewis's performance sets it apart in the acting department at least...

  • Pants-are-a-must

    I want there to be a Stephen Colbert cameo in The Hobbit movies. I want it because I want to see an entire movie theater get a collective aneurysm from the AWESOME.
