Looking for an excuse to revel in blood and body parts while the rest of the world goes caroling? Trying to find something to comfort your disturbed soul during December’s holiday stress and mayhem? Since Hollywood seems to stay away from scares during the Yuletide season, look no further than your local comic shop. Comic book publishers have been delivering the goods when it comes to horror series lately, and these titles are sure to have you giggling ghoulishly from now to the New Year. So snap them up. Or, even better—hand the single issues out as holiday presents to insufferable relatives who insist on displaying “holiday cheer”. A bit of merry doom will do them good.

HollywoodNews.com: This is the final entry in a handful of essays that will be dealing with the various trends that were kicked off during the 2001 calendar year, and how they still resonate today.
Yesterday (the 19th) marked the tenth anniversary of the Us theatrical release of The Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring. It was just over a month after the Us theatrical release of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, which had debuted with a record-breaking $92 million opening weekend. Debuting with a December-record $72 million five-day haul, The Fellowship of the Ring parlayed superb reviews and splendid word of mouth to break a number of Christmas and New Year’s season records and show off some of the best legs this side of Titanic and The Sixth Sense. These two films, which closed out the year, would directly or indirectly pave the »

It’s been a busy weekend for trailers. We already brought you a first peek at the new clip for Men in Black III, but that was just the beginning. Read on for a chance to see some of the newest clips creating buzz in Hollywood. If you ever wondered what would happen if someone made The Sixth Sense as a 3D cartoon, then this new trailer for ParaNorman might be the answer you’ve been looking for. Featuring the voice talents of Kodi Smit-McPhee, Casey Affleck, and John Goodman (along with countless others…), this preview looks like a sort of kid-friendly take on Shyamalan’s classic chiller. Norman (Smit-McPhee) can talk to the dead, so when his town comes under attack by zombies and other paranormal monsters, it’s up to him to save the day. The...

Check out this new international trailer for Snow White and the Huntsman which stars Kirsten Stewart stars as the titular heroine, alongside Charlize Theron as the Queen, Chris Hemsworth as the Huntsman and Sam Claflin as the Prince. Directed by Rupert Sanders, Snow White and the Huntsman is released on June 1st 2012.
In the epic action-adventure Snow White and the Huntsman, Kristen Stewart (Twilight) plays the only person in the land fairer than the evil queen (Oscar winner Charlize Theron) who is out to destroy her. But what the wicked ruler never imagined is that the young woman threatening her reign has been training in the art of war with a huntsman (Chris Hemsworth, Thor) who was dispatched to kill her.
The internet was collectively shocked when the first trailer for Snow White and the Huntsman trailer landed and it looked to be one of the more entertaining options this summer. The shock continued when Tarsem‘s dueling pic Mirror, Mirror looked to be worse on about every level. Commercials director Rupert Sanders (making his featured debut here) seems to have injected a keen visual style, full of spectacle.
We now have a new international trailer that sells even more of this aspect. It also helps in that area considering that an English-speaker can’t understand anything going on and we’ve only got the visuals to focus on. We get a further glimpse at some of the beach battle action, forest fighting and Kristen Stewart and her apple, as well as Charlize Theron‘s villainous side and Chris Hemsworth in action. Check it out below.

M. Night Shyamalan's directing career has taken him from "Oscar-nominated wunderkind" for The Sixth Sense, then "summer blockbuster powerhouse" with Signs, then a string of disappointments like The Village, Lady in the Water, The Happening and especially The Last Airbender that's made him. what, exactly? A punchline for anyone who doesn't like twist endings? A punching bag for Last Airbender fans who think he destroyed something they love? A total mystery for those of us who still think he has a little bit of talent? Whatever you think of Shyamalan at this point, you won't be getting rid of him any time soon-- despite the colossal awfulness of The Last Airbender it made $319 million worldwide, and Shyamalan is now moving on to another gigantic project, 1000 A.E., which will star Will and Jaden Smith as a father and son who crash land on earth 1,000 years after humans have acated »

Reason infinity why it's great when celebrities join Twitter. M. Night Shyamalan, the man behind 'The Sixth Sense,' 'Signs' and -- unfortunately for him -- 'The Happening' and 'The Last Airbender,' has recently signed up for the social networking site, and in a tweet late Wednesday night he revealed what Hollywood superstar Will Smith has taken to calling him. Responding to a fan wondering what friends call Shyamalan, the director wrote, "Most family calls me 'Manoj.' All my friends and everyone else calls me 'Night.' A few peeps call me 'M.' Will Smith calls me 'M. Neezie.'" And there's your icebreaker, should you ever run into Shyamalan on the street!

Hunger Games Gets New Sound
Danny Elfman apparently bit off more than he could chew and has now stepped away from The Hunger Games, leaving the musical accompaniment for the Ya adaptation to eight-time Oscar-nominated composer/orchestrator James Newton Howard.
Elfman was originally set to work with T-Bone Burnett to bring some awesome sounds to the soundtrack for The Hunger Games but Variety brings word that the popular composer has had to leave the project because of scheduling conflicts. I usually roll my eyes at news like that because there’s almost always something other than the schedule causing a conflict. However, considering that Elfman is also currently working on Men in Black III and Dark Shadows, with Frankenweenie and Oz: The Great and Powerful waiting in the wings for him, I’m inclined to believe the scheduling conflict excuse this time.
Fortunately, it doesn’t look like director Gary Ross »

One movie in 2012 that we know will have no problems with promotion has to be Snow White and the Huntsman or Swath as it’s becoming known on Twitter mainly due to the fact that it has Twilight star Kristen Stewart in it! Page to Premiere via Shockya have put up these set images from UK locations Bourne Wood and Pinewood Studios where the movie is being shot following Et’s visit to the set. If you missed it, you can see their set video report here.
Snow White and the Huntsman is due for release 1st June 2012.
In the epic action-adventure Snow White and the Huntsman, Kristen Stewart (Twilight) plays the only person in the land fairer than the evil queen (Oscar(r) winner Charlize Theron) out to destroy her.

M. Night Shyamalan’s fall from grace has unfortunately been a swift one for the once-untouchable director. After giving us the brilliant box-office hit thrillers-with-a-twist The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable, Signs and The Village, it was soon downhill after that with the appalling double efforts of The Happening and The Last Airbender bringing things to a head. Hopefully his next project, After Earth, will once again see audiences flocking to the multiplexes. The cast he has assembled that will certainly help.
Will Smith and son Jaden have already been confirmed and now X-men: First Class star Zoe Kravitz along with Oscar-nominated Hotel Rwanda actress Sophie Okonedo are now in talks to join the film as daughter and wife respectively. After Earth will be big-budget action-adventure project coming via Columbia Pictures. It’s set well into the future and focuses on a father and son whose spacecraft crashes back on Earth, years after the planet became inhabitable. »

Instead, James Newton Howard will be stepping in, still planning to work with Burnett. Howard's past scores include The Sixth Sense , Unbreakable and The Fugitive . Based on the book series by Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Banks, Woody Harrelson, Toby Jones, Donald Sutherland and many more.

If you’re unfamiliar with the name Kathleen Kennedy, I assure you you're very familiar with her work. Kennedy has been one of Steven Spielberg's producing partners since Raiders of the Lost Ark, and is responsible for producing films like Schindler’s List, Jurassic Park, The Sixth Sense, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, and many many more. Most recently she worked with Spielberg on the director’s two December releases War Horse and The Adventures of Tintin. Steve is currently in New York for the War Horse junket and he got the chance to speak with Kennedy, who gave updates on a number of high profile projects. While we’ll have the full interview up shortly (as well as updates on other upcoming projects), we wanted to share with you what she had to say about a Tintin sequel, Jurassic Park 4 and the possiblity of a 3D re-release for Jurassic Park today. »

Polarizing director M. Night Shyamalan recently joined Twitter and revealed a few things about his upcoming collaboration with Will Smith. Back in April, it was announced Shyamalan would direct both Will and his son Jaden Smith in a movie tentatively titled One Thousand A.E. about what happens when a young boy and his father's spaceship crash lands on Earth one thousand years after humans abandoned it. Shyamalan recently tweeted that he's nine weeks away from shooting and that the film is now titled After Earth. Read more after the jump. Since the director of The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable and Avatar: The Last Airbender joined Twitter, several tweets  have been about his upcoming film: I draw out every shot on my films. Just finished the second pass of them for After Earth. 676 shots! Four months of work. 9 weeks out from shooting After Earth. Looking at paintings/photos to find the tone of the film. »

It seems the name of Bruce Willis is no longer enough to get a film seen in cinemas. But does that matter anymore, wonders Simon...
There’s a reason, I’ve concluded, that Bruce Willis’ filming schedule currently finds him in the midst of four sequels. Right now, Willis has completed work, is working on, or starting shortly on The Expendables 2, G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra, A Good Day To Die Hard and Red 2. Each of those should give him a solid box office hit at the very least.
On paper, he doesn’t seem to need it, though. In 2010, he had a trio of films that topped the Us box office, in the shape of Cop Out, The Expendables and Red. However, they were his first live action hits outside of the Die Hard franchise in some time (and two of them sold off the back of an ensemble). Before that, »
Gosh, it’s been rather painful to watch this sixth season of Dexter unfold, waiting for the big ‘reveal’ of Professor Gellar (Edward James Olmos) as the imaginary voice driving the murderous antics of Travis Marshall (Colin Hanks). The church basement scene in ‘Get Gellar’ was meant to bring the shock levels to that of the last scene in movies like The Sixth Sense, Usual Suspects or The Fight Club, but it was merely a formality that many viewers have been expecting for a long time.Though it didn’t take a visit from Captain Obvious to see this one coming, I still held out hope that the writers had something truly shocking planned. But I’m glad that’s out of the way, because it leaves three episodes to take the story to a different place. It’s apparent that Dexter (Michael C. Hall) will track down Travis and »

Don't worry, Masuka, I braced myself for awful before Dexter aired tonight.
And, boy, did "Get Gellar" deliver just that, finally revealing the most obvious "shocker" in all of television: Professor Gellar is dead and Travis has been acting alone this entire time. The show has been airing scenes on a weekly basis that only took place inside Travis' warped mind.
I will try to be as succinct and as calm about this as possible, but this is simply storytelling at its worst and at its laziest. It's one thing to build toward a surprising reveal that is well-paced and nearly impossible to predict. Take The Sixth Sense, for instance, a clear model for this Dexter storyline.
At no point in that movie are we watching a character who does not exist. We are not purposely being misled by the writers, just so they can come back later and try to pull an "a-ha! »
