Reel Projections Part 2, Friday December 12


Two new photos from Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds, including this one of Brad Pitt.

Not ready, Freddy: Now Nightmare on Elm Street is going back to its acne'd-villain-in-a-bad-sweater origins. Which means that Michael Bay has The Unborn, Friday the 13th (yet another reboot) and this film to his credit as a producer. You go to HELL, Michael Bay, how's that for a horror movie concept? (Can't wait for Transformers 2, though.)

Watchmen! I know you can't get enough, (because I won't let you) so here's the footage that played at Comic-Con over the summer. No narration, just pure awesomeness:

Just imagine how good the movie will be: Feast your sore eyes on the ass-tastic poster for the upcoming Unborn, which was written and directed by David S. Goyer, whose writing credits include The Dark Knight, Batman Begins, the Blade trilogy and Jumper. I could say a few dissertation-worthy things about this poster as an example of our culture's feelings toward female sexuality and evil. But why get all serious on a flick that features Gary Oldman as a Rabbi performing an exorcism and a character whose last name is Hardigan, which, if you ask me, is truth in advertising right there. "Evil will do anything to live." And I want to be bad. So very, very bad.

Sounds great! Majel Barrett-Roddenberry, widow of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry, will voice the computer of the Enterprise in the upcoming Star Trek film. Which I found of interest only because it permits me to include a Star Trek update in this post.

How did the Hollywood glitterati react to the Golden Globes nominations? Variety has their thoughts here.

ScreenRant rants about the Dark Knight snub at the Golden Globes and Cinema Blend chides awards givers about overlooking the Batman. (Money quote: The Golden Globes are "a vague entity run by a strange and mysterious European shadow organization.")

Speaking of Dark Knight: It's breaking more records.
