More Horror for Your 'Amusement'

We've finally gotten around to dissecting the creepy little horror film 'Amusement' which released earlier this year on DVD. Check out our Amusement Movie Review and gander at the official synopsis below. We've included the trailer under that as well. Enjoy.

Official Synopsis:

Tabitha. Shelby. Lisa. They're longtime friends on separate life paths. But they share a horrific destination when a seemingly innocent incident from their school days comes back to terrify them.

Something someone wants payback: warped vengeance…mind-games vengeance…taunting, shredding, slashing vengeance. Inside a stonewalled chamber of prison cells and mechanisms of doom, the three women and other victims face a fierce fight to survive. Who lives? Who dies? It's all for someones Amusement.

From screenwriter Jake Wade Wall (The Hitcher) and director John Simpson (Freeze Frame) comes a new film foray into horror. Turn down the lights. Turn up the fear.

Red Trailer: Like Space Cowboys, But Spies

Watch the Red (Retired Extremely Dangerous) Trailer: This is how the pitch meeting went: Remember Space Cowboys? No. No. No. Yes! Great! It’s Space Cowboys, but with ex-cia agents! Wait, no, I don’t remember Space Cowboys. You just said that you did. I was thinking about The Astronaut Farmer. (Disgusted silence) Anyway, the cast is Helen Mirren, Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, Mary-Louise Parker and John Malkovich. Oh! Why didn’t you just say that? Plus it’s based on a comic book. And guns. Lots of guns. Here is 200 million dollars. Thank you! Freeze frame jumping in the air high fives

#2 "Grown Ups" ($41 million)

#3 "Knight and Day" ($20.5 million)

#4 "The Karate Kid" ($15.4 million)

#5 "The A-Team" ($6 million)

Moviegoers pining for their childhood years and those not quite ready to admit that they're well into their adult lives walked away happy this weekend as "Toy Story 3" and "Grown Ups" were the big winners at the weekend box office, while "Knight and Day" opened to disappointing results.

Landing in first place was "Toy Story 3" for its second-consecutive weekend victory. The Pixar family film earned $59 million in its second frame, bringing the latest "Toy Story" installment's domestic total to $226.6 million after just two weeks. With an additional $100 million earned overseas, "Toy Story 3" has a worldwide toy chest worth $326.6 million,

The Box-Office Top Five

#1 "Toy Story 3" ($109 million)

#2 "The Karate Kid" ($29 million)

#3 "The A-Team" ($13.8 million)

#4 "Get Him to the Greek" ($6.1 million)

#5 "Shrek Forever After" ($5.5 million)

Two Wild West heroes entered the box-office arena this weekend. Only one gunslinger made it out with victory to his name. That badge-wielding cowboy goes by the name of Woody, the pull-string action figure at the center of "Toy Story 3," Pixar's latest effort that easily outgunned "Jonah Hex."

"Toy Story 3" emerged in first place this weekend with a fantastic $109 million haul, the best opening weekend ever for any Pixar film to date. "The Incredibles" held the previous record with $70.5 million. At the start of the weekend, some box-office analysts predicted that the third "Toy Story" installment could break the best opening weekend record for an animated film,

Oscar-winning “Lord of the Rings” trilogy conquers on Blu-ray

By Sean O’Connell

HollywoodNews.com stays on top of the latest DVD and Blu-ray releases so you know which films are worth your time and money. This week, we recommend:

The Lord of the Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy

Let’s get the obvious out of the way: New Line Home Entertainment’s initial Blu-ray treatment of its precious “Lord of the Rings” franchise concentrates on the truncated theatrical cuts instead of director Peter Jackson’s extended editions.

Disappointed fans have expressed their anger on the appropriate message boards, and are likely to wait for those releases — even though the studio hasn’t mentioned when, or even if, such treatments will ever be applied to Jackson’s longer versions.

For those who choose not to wait, the “Rings” Blu-rays await you, and they are glorious. Frodo (Elijah Wood) embarks on his quest to destroy the darkly powerful ring,

We look forward to sequels, new stories ('Despicable Me') and re-imaginings ('Yogi Bear').

By Eric Ditzian

Buzz Lightyear from "Toy Story 3"

All this week, MTV News is devoting itself to all things 3-D, and nowhere has Hollywood's recent shift three dimensions been more apparent than in films geared toward kids. From CG-animated tales to live-action adventures, kids' movies in 2010 and beyond represent the greatest percentage of films getting the 3-D treatment. Let's take a look at what's coming down the pipeline in future months and years.

"Shrek Forever After" (May 21, 2010): The fourth and final film in the lovable green orge's franchise will be the first to go the 3-D route. Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz and Eddie Murphy are all back in a story that thrusts Shrek into an "It's a Wonderful Life"-style alternate universe.

Given the opportunity to scout the land via a mind-controlled Na'vi avatar, Sully ends up falling for a native named Neytiri

'Clash Of The Titans' Teaser Trailer (Insert Comic Book Connection Here)

Okay, so the upcoming remake of "Clash of the Titans" isn't a comic book movie. I could try to make all sorts of connections between the film's cast (Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson, Danny Huston, etc.) and comic book movies ("Green Lantern," "Batman Begins," "Wolverine"), but let's be honest here: it looks really freakin' cool and that's why I'm posting it here. Enjoy.

Giant scorpions, Medusa, "300"-style brawls and Liam Neeson as Zeus. I'm sold.

If you like what you see (and even if you don't), be sure to check out the Freeze Frame "Clash of the Titans" commentary on MoviesBlog.MTV.com, too.

A 'Clash Of The Titans' Blow-By-Blow In The Latest Edition Of Freeze Frame

Many of us woke up this morning to the sight of an exciting new trailer, for Louis Leterrier's remake of "Clash of the Titans." Other than a footage-lite set visit, we really haven't seen anything from the actual movie until now. And it's looking pretty sweet, as you saw in the trailer this morning. This latest edition of Freeze Frame doesn't make it look any sweeter, but it does get a whole lot funnier. Enjoy.

'The Wolfman' Trailer Howls In A New Freeze Frame

The latest trailer for "The Wolfman" hit last week. Personally, I'm much more excited for the Benicio del Toro-starring remake of the 1941 creature feature now. Where the previous trailer fell short in delivering man-dog action, this one brings the bared teeth and then some. And since there's nothing funnier than a man turning into a flesh-eating dog (seriously... nothing funnier), the trailer was practically screaming -- or perhaps Howling -- for a Freeze Frame treatment.

Check out the untouched trailer after the jump.

Mean Creek

I know I'm regionally biased, but Mean Creek is not merely a great Boston Band; they're a really great band period. The J. Geils Band at the Worcester Centrum was the first concert I ever experienced. This was a few years before "Cenetrfold"/ "Freeze Frame" J. Geils . It was more the Full House Live J. Geils era, with "First I Look at The Purse", "(Ain't Nothin' but a)House Party", "Whammer Jammer" ie the down and dirty street shuffle, combat zone, jungle boogie shit that makes you proud of your dirty water heritage. I was twelve years old wandering around backstage when I ran into lead singer Peter Wolf, my...
