Anything you can do to draw attention to your mouth is good. Clueless director Amy Heckerling is making a vampire romantic comedy. I can’t believe they found a way to actually might make me kind want to see a vampire movie. (No, Alicia Silverstone is not involved – Krysten Ritter is – but I am not one to resist a cheap Photoshop gag.) In related news has been burning up the internet. Saturday Night Live’s Twilight spoof
Oh, James Cameron. The New York Times claims that . Well, at least Avatar’s price tag is a cool $500 mil the latest trailer actually bothers to make it look like an action movie.
Mumble mumble fourth. The Los Angeles Times’ Geoff Boucher looks at the difficulty of making upcoming films for several different franchises: Lord of the Rings, Spider-Man, X-Men and Pirates of the Caribbean. On that note, io9 quotes the relevant parts of a /Film podcast where X2 screenwriter Michael Dougherty describes what X3 might have been.
Shocking! ‘Archival footage’ from that cheesy alien abduction movie actually fake. People, did we learn nothing from Blair Witch?
Also… The ‘lost’ cantina scene of ; Star Trek Ian McKellen and Viggo Mortensen talk The Hobbit; New poster for Tim Burton’s . Alice in Wonderland

At least the effects are good. The first trailer for M. Night Shyamalan’s live action adaption of Avatar: The Last Airbender is not the most captivating teaser ever, but it only blows in the literal sense. (And, well, there’s still that whole racebending thing…) The trailer unveiling (it’s attached to Transformers) also unleashed the film’s official site and a flurry of set visit pieces: MTV, SciFi Wire, io9, SuperHero Hype and IGN. But the movie isn’t out for a year, so don’t go expecting too much just yet.
Oh, Michael Bay. Everyone hates ( Transformers 2! Really!) Including Roger Ebert, in fine form. For some reason, this warms the cockles of my black little heart…
The other Avatar. Footage of James Cameron’s , the 3-D one, was screened in Europe. Avatar
And since we’re on a name-brand director jaunt… First look at Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland.

The trailer for Tim Burton’s starring Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter. Based on the Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, musical of the same name, it features Johnny Depp singing. Singing!

I did not regret not going to Comic-Con until I heard this:
They showed a Why is it not online? This is so unfair. Futurama trailer.
You changed the outcome by measuring it!
