Finally, the Total Recall remake has a trailer. Whoopie...Wait, Kate Beckinsale is in it?! Damn, now I have to go. We should all buy a ticket to see this fine example of true creativity and quality film. Not too sure how much of this post is sarcastic and how much is truly sincere. But I'm really going to see it.
If you guys saw The Hunger Games within the past week, chances are you saw the latest trailer for Prometheus. Just in case, I want to make sure everyone is on the same page by posting it here. I'm amazed that the trailers have revealed minimal hints as to being a part of the Alien series. Once we get closer to the release date, I'm ready to see some face-hugger footage or at least a bit more than some nasty slime.

Seeing as I was in New York last week and that I'm a huge Seinfeld fan, certain adventures had to take place. Yes, I found the original diner that a majority of Seinfeld takes place in. I also found the famous 'black-and-white' cookie that Jerry loves (if you don't know what I'm talking about you should definitely follow the link). But this? Someone in NY loves Seinfeld a little to much if you ask me.
Okay, anyone who has ever seen Battlestar Galactica should find the whole 'fracking' thing hilarious. I had never heard of it until last week but I can't take it seriously. Apparently, the real definition of 'fracking' is when people go and siphon their own gas from underground, or something like that. I guess it can be dangerous but seriously, that's what happens when you frack with things you don't understand.

Hey all. As you can see from my lack of posting I have been unable to update the blog. I am actually in New York City for the next week and already have a ton of new stuff that I can't wait to post about. However, that will have to wait for when I get home next Thursday. The city calls to me! See you all then!

So I guess I'm a little behind on the whole Lone Ranger thing but this morning I had my mind blown by the group of people involved in the project. Ted Elliot and Terry Rossio (Pirate franchise, Treasure Planet) are some of my favorite writers and Armie Hammer, who I'm sure is going to be the next big name, is the starring lead. Yes, that's Johnny Depp next to him as Tonto but I think this movie is going to be much more than some action-packed, big budget blockbuster (say that three times fast).
The cast is pretty much transferred over from the Pirates franchise (Gore Verbinski is directing as well) and I feel that this movie will have the same feel as the first Pirates film did. We have a fresh new idea based of a fairly popular series and while I can't say anything about the likely sequels already lined up for Lone Ranger, the first one shouldn't disappoint.
Sidenote: does anyone else think it's weird that Armie Hammer is also the heir to the big Arm and Hammer fortune? I mean, how cocky was his dad to name his son Armand Hammer? I feel for the poor guy.
