Paramount Pictures has just unveiled their 2009 preview and in rather lackluster form I may say as new images from anticipated features such as Martin Scorese's Shutter Island, Peter Jackson's The Lovely Bones and Star Trek were nowhere to be found. Fanboy favorites such as G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen also saw zilch in the updated imagery department. We do, however, have new pics from Eddie Murphy's next kid flick, the previously titled Nowhereland, now labeled as Imagine That and to be honest that is about as exciting as it gets in the updates department. All the cast, director and synopsis information is listed over the course of the next few pages as well as all the release dates for 15 new features. Surprisingly enough, only one of them is actual a Paramount Pictures solo release as the majority of these belong to their previous partner DreamWorks. »

Check out the trailer, poster and more from Paramount Pictures' "Dance Flick" starring Damon Wayans Jr., Craig Wayans, Shoshana Bush, Essence Atkins and Affion Crockett. “Dance Flick,” is a new comedy from the Wayans’ brothers who brought you the hilarious “Scary Movie" franchise and “White Chicks.” The film is due in theatres on February 6th next year. Writing are Keenen Ivory Wayans, Shawn Wayans, Marlon Wayans, Craig Wayans and Damien Dante Wayans. The poster claims it's "The funniest dance movie of all time." Let's see how this one turns out. »
In the wake of White Chicks and Little Man, the Wayans Brothers return to grace the world with the presence of next February's Dance Flick, which lampoons last February's Step Up 2: The Streets, not to mention Save the Last Dance, You Got Served, How She Move, maybe Center Stage, possibly Robert Altman's The Company, and probably plenty of stuff that isn't related to actual dance flicks.
Having watched the initial Scary Movie last week for the first time since my formative teen years, their spoof efforts there still aren't on par with SM3 (which they didn't do), but remain above SM2 (which they did do). In short: humor that's dated and crude is right up their alley (I'm frankly impressed they remembered to work Flashdance in), and besides, you saw that break-dancing newborn, right? Call up Calista Flockhart, and count me out already.
Starring the usually amusing Amy Sedaris »

With Little Man, White Chicks and a few of the Scary Movies under their belt, The Wayans brothers are now moving on to some sacred territory. They are set to produce a film about the TV show The Munsters. This television show is pop culture gold, just waiting to be mined... but, the Wayans brothers? Really? They were the first to the punch? Yes, they were the first to the punch, back in 2004. They've been holding the rights to the flick since then. MTV Movies Blog reports that the movie is almost ready to go into actual production. Shawn Wayans claims they are on their last draft of the script and that "I'm almost ready. It's almost ready to be shot. We had to finish this movie and now we're going through our third polish on The Munsters." That's great, but are we ready for a Wayans brothers version of »

A screening of the first Hellboy movie helped Five to its best audience in several months last night (Sunday). The film - timed to coincide with this week's release of Hellboy II - averaged an impressive 2.85m (11.9%) for the channel between 8pm and 10.15pm, putting Five ahead of BBC Two and Channel 4 throughout much of primetime. At 7pm, a repeat of Rory & Paddy's Great British Adventure, which began last week with 1.24m (5.4%), pulled in 1.22m (5.9%). Later in the evening, Wayans brothers comedy White Chicks had 861,000 (7.5%). A day of Gold medals for Team Gb at the Olympics also meant good news for BBC One, which maintained a comfortable 40-plus share for most of the day. Coverage of rowing and cycling brought in an average of 4.65m (51.6%) between 8.20am and midday, then athletics coverage averaged a sizeable 5.02m (42.6%) until 4.45pm. (more) »
