Thursday Thrills, Chills and Spills
First up this week to get you thrilled is that it appears that yes, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo will be gracing our theatres soon! I saw this poster outside the Varsity theatre in Toronto an it notes an April 2, 2010 release (although I've also heard earlier). The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is a Swedish (already set for a 2012 remake) and is the first in a trilogy based on books of the (followed by The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest) all by the late Stieg Larsson. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo / Män som hatar kvinnor is directed by Niels Arden Oplev and stars Noomi Rapace and Michael Nyqvist. See the Trailer here or more info at the films Official Films Site & IMDb Page.
Sneak peak of the upcoming Predators films over at the films website from Robert Rodriguez, and trailer should be out today as well! The sneak peak looks pretty promising, I like the visual style and the characters already. It's going for a prequel feel and the description indicate it doesn't want to be 'yet another sequel' which I get but it really does have the feeling of the original. So weird to see Adrien Brody in an action film, but he definitely will be a highlight. I'm more excited now about the film than I was before! Predators hits theatres July 7, 2010.
Buried gets a Release Date! The one man thrillerness of Buried starring Ryan Reynolds gets a released date of September 24, 2010. Looking forward to hearing more about the film as we get closer to the day! Thanks to Screen Rant for spreading the word.
Another release date set is that of the Coen Brother's remake of the western True Grit which will grace screens this Christmas - December 25, 2010. Also news on the True Grit front is that Barry Pepper has joined the cast.
More casting goodness for the upcoming Conan film. Ron Perlman has been cast as Conan's father Corin. Also joining the cast is Saïd Taghmaoui (Breaker in G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra). Conan will star Jason Momoa (Ronon Dex in "Stargate: Atlantis") in the title role, will be directed by Marcus Nispel (Friday the 13th (2009), Pathfinder) is set to release in 2011. See more on their IMDb Page. Thanks to Geeks of Doom and Hollywood Spy for the Conan news.
For something that we don't have to wait quite so long for, it appears that we will be seeing Michael Caine going vengeful in Harry Brown. Posters have been cropping up around town (see below) and this week the trailers started surfacing as well. Harry Brown is the feature film directorial debut from Daniel Barber and will hit theatres April 30, 2010. See more info at the Official Film Site & IMDb Page.
Thrill of this week looks to up tomorrows release of Repo Men starring Jude Law and Forest Whitaker. Not to be confused with last years Repo! The Genetic Opera, which is a rock opera, but both appear to feature rather aggressive organ repossession techniques.
