Fans hated Alien vs. Predator, the studio loved it because it earned enough money and I still have to see it 'cause The Netherlands will release it in October. Anyway, because of its Box Office success, plans to make a stand-alone Alien and Predator movie are quickly being formed. Expect new movies very soon, Predator 3 could bring back Schwarzenegger's character Dutch! Source: Moviehole
Moviehole's Clint received a very cool scoop: "Talking of sturdy storylines, the idea for a new "Dirty Harry" that I heard today - over at Warner - is just brilliant. I won't say too much, but let's just say it flips back to the original film, and it's Clint Eastwood playing 'old' Harry, in a sort of 'Dark Knight Returns' vein. Hoping that baby happens." How cool is that!
What happened to Charlize?:
My future wife Charlize Theron was injured during the shoot of the sci-fi flick Aeon Flux and her boyfriend Stuart Townsend (she'll dump him,
'cause she's going to marry me) has got some details:
"Yes, she's doing Aeon Flux. She was shooting in Berlin. She'd been practicing for three months and it was like back flips, somersaults, on trampolines. Going one, two, three, on the wires. Then you put on a costume with platform heels. No matter how much training you do, the heels became very slippery after doing it so many times in a day. She slipped in the middle. Her disc went very close to her spinal cord. The doctors were like, one millimeter, that's all it was from another life. So no more stunts for her, I forbid it. (Laughs) I know her, she'll be like, "I'm fine" in six weeks and "ready to go". All of us are like no, you have to come down. Let the stunt people do that. That's their job and they're professionals. That's what they get paid for. More and more actors, since The Matrix style of shooting, are asked to do crazy stuff. It surprises me. Now the whole production is shut down. It doesn't make sense, business wise. Maybe they've learned their lesson."
There ya go, get well soon, my dear.

Hi guys, enjoyed the Labor Day weekend? News is pouring in slowly but I'm sure bigger headlines will hit the web
later this week. So lets start with a few new trailers!
I found this interesting looking trailer for Undertow.
The movie stars Josh Lucas and Dermot Mulroney. Keanu Reeves is also back, not as Neo but as Constantine, which
is based on the comic Hellblazer. This international trailer looks amazing, so you gotta check it out. And
the last trailer for today is for the martial arts flick Forbidden Warrior.
Hit the links to download the trailers.
Check out this beauty, the poster for Cursed! The werewolf horror flick re-unites director Wes Craven and writer Kevin Williamson,
they also worked together on the Scream movies. Cursed stars Christina Ricci and James Brolin.

Travolta talks Pulp Fiction prequel/sequel?:
John Travolta talked a bit about a Pulp Fiction prequel or sequel:
"Tarantino has been considering another episode of the drama.
Every six months he calls me to talk about a project on the story of the Vega brothers - a type of prequel to Pulp Fiction. Then, it all remains in his mind. The problem is that we worked together in tight times. Now he makes films for millions of dollars. I don't know if I'd still be OK for him."
Great pics hit the web, starting left to right; a shit load of new pics for Jude law's Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow. Hit the
pic for more! Next, absolutely wonderful pics for Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence, created by the amazing Mamoru Oshii. The last pic
