Looking forward to The Box. It’s directed by the guy who did Donnie Darko and based on a Twilight Zone episode, so I have high hopes.
The poster for Takers was a good idea, but the execution was horrible. I mean, could they really not get them all in a room together? Why use so much photoshop for a poster that really doesn’t need ANY? Or at least get someone half way skilled with layers.
And is it just me, or does The Shrine sound an awful lot like the plot from Resident Evil 4? The game, not the upcoming movie.
Nice touch on D9 being the 9th photo link,,, haahaaa,,!
Definitely going to check out the Quaid film, he’s one of the greats,,,,!!!
I hate to say it but the Michael Jackson poster is the best one here,,,
@ Josh Rose
Yeah,and he’s also the same guy that directed Southland Tales.
In case you didn’t get the tone of the comment,that’s a bad thing.
That Growl looks to be a killer werewolf movie with an original plot for a change.
Takers. Worst photoshop job…. EVER. In this day and age, if you can’t doctor a poster properly, you should go back to fetching lunch for people who can. Yeesh.
How interesting…a big-screen remake of a Twilight Zone episode from 1985-86, called “Button, Button” and based on the Richard Matheson short story published in Playboy in 1970 (Matheson hated the TZ version, according to Wikipedia).
The link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Button,_Button_(The_Twilight_Zone)
The plot, word-for-word:
“Norma Lewis is the wife of a down-and-out man named Arthur, who has problems landing steady employment and can only afford to put his wife in a low-rent apartment. One day, they receive a mysterious box with a button on it and a note that says a Mr. Steward will come visit. Then, just as the note says, a smartly-dressed stranger who introduces himself as Steward comes to their door. He explains that if they press the button on the box, two things will happen: they will receive $200,000, and someone “whom you don’t know” will die.
After the stranger leaves, the Lewises wonder whether Steward’s proposal is genuine, and agonize over whether to press the button. Norma rationalizes that they could make good use of the money, and that the one who dies might be some Chinese peasant who is living a miserable life. Arthur takes the side that since they do not know who will die, pressing the button may cause the death of an innocent baby. They open the box and discover no mechanism inside it – it is simply an empty box with a button on it. Arthur angrily throws the box in the trash. However, in the middle of the night while Arthur is asleep, Norma goes to the apartment building’s dumpster and retrieves the device. The next day, Arthur leaves for work and sees Norma sitting at the kitchen table, her gaze transfixed on the button. At the end of the day, he returns from work and it appears that nothing has changed; Norma is still concentrating only on the button and sitting. The days go by. Norma and Arthur keep talking about the box, when suddenly Norma decides that she will push the button. She does it and her husband looks at her with disgust. They go to bed after seeing nothing happens.
However, the next day the stranger returns, takes back the box, and gives them a briefcase with the $200,000. The Lewises are in shock and ask what will happen next. The stranger ominously replies that the button will be “reprogrammed” and offered to someone else with the same terms and conditions, adding as he focuses on Norma, “I can assure you it will be offered to someone whom you don’t know.” A horrified, knowing expression crosses Norma’s face…”
What a perfect example of a Twilight Zone episode’s typical focus on morality. Unfortunately, if they stick to the episode that closely then you’ve just given away the ending of the movie.
That was the TZ ending…anyone’s guess as to whether or not someone will stick closer to Matheson’s original story, or cling to TZ Version like Velcro toilet paper…
So it’s ok to kill a Chinese guy, but not an “innocent” baby.
Alright, I see how it is…
MJ is definitely the king. Whenever i listen to his records i feel like he is still alive. Certainly one of the best music stars ever!
