New mysterious human arriving in ep 11 & more in this new Vampire Diaries season 3 spoiler. Hey Vd fans we just got a new,spoiler scoop from Spoiler TV. Apparently, Vampire Diaries is bringing on a new,mysterious human named Darren Warren in episode 11. I say,mysterious,because there is no damn info on the net about what he will be doing on the show. Hell, the only reason why we know he's on the show,is because it appeared in his IMDb acting credits. I was barely able to find out that he was human. Luckily, Vampirediaries wikia gave us,at least, that much. Your guess is as good as mine as to what he will be doing. Maybe he'll just be more snacks for Klaus or the other vampires,which,I think, is highly likely since there wasn't a big deal made about his appearance. Hey, but who knows, he »
The first trailer for Robert De Niro's new movie, Being Flynn, is now online. It's based on poet and playwright Nick Flynn's 2004 memoir Another Bullshit Night in Suck City, in which he chronicles his unexpected reunion with his estranged alcoholic father at a homeless shelter in Boston.
Being Flynn marks a return to more dramatic material for writer-director Paul Weitz, who earned an Academy Award nomination for his 2002 dramedy adaptation About a Boy, but then subsequently strayed into parody (American Dreamz), fantasy (Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant), and comedy (Little Fockers, also with De Niro). The movie does not yet have a release date, but it is aimed at a Spring 2012 opening.

Before this weekend, Kevin Smith was always known as a comedy guy. "Clerks," "Chasing Amy," "Zack and Miri Make a Porno," plus his Smodcast podcast and Q&A-slash-stand-up films like "An Evening With Kevin Smith." He stretched himself a little into drama, animation, and acting, but until his new film "Red State" -- available now on VOD -- the scariest thing Kevin Smith had ever directed was "Jersey Girl" (I kid).
The transition from comedy to horror is rarely an easy one for directors. Few guys as entrenched in the comedy genre as Smith have ever tried to break out of it, and even fewer have made their break successfully. Here are five interesting -- and very different -- examples of horror movies made by guys we'd typically classify as comedy directors. We'll get to see soon enough how Smith's big move compares with theirs.

Danielle Shields looks at ten youngsters destined to be the next big thing...
With the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 bringing an end to the magical franchise, it is clear that just like its three main protagonists, thousands of children have grown up with the series and are now progressing into adulthood. Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson were a mere eleven years old when they were thrown head first into media chaos with being named the stars of the future. A decade later and it's now safe to say that the prediction has come true with one of the trio moving to stage, the other sticking with the big screen and the last moving into modelling. Now, it is time to meet the young actors and actresses who have taken their rightful place as the new rising stars. Some have already created a »
Slasher time travel fest 'Detention' has been acquired by Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions (Spwa). The Joseph Kahn ('Torque') helmed picture which stars Josh Hutcherson ('Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant') and Shanley Caswell (below) alongside 'not-so-funny'-man Dane Cook will hopefully receieve an official release date sooner now rather than later. Spencer Locke ('Resident Evil: Extinction'), Aaron David Johnson, Parker Bagley, Alison Woods, Walter Perez and Carrie Wiita all co-star. Check out the plot and what Kahn had to say on the acquisition below. »
Willem Dafoe is a man of eclectic taste, vacillating between decidedly arthouse fare like "Antichrist" and "The Dust Of Time," low rent fare like "Mr. Bean's Holiday" and "Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant" and straight up tentpole movies such as "Spiderman" and the upcoming "John Carter Of Mars." He follows his muse wherever it goes really, and it looks like it has a taste for the supernatural. THR reports that Dafoe is in talks to join "The Mummy" and "G.I. Joe" director Stephen Sommers' gestating tween thriller "Odd Thomas." Starring Anton Yelchin and Addison Timlin, the film is an… »

Lionsgate's The Hunger Games movie cast has tripled to a love triangle with Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson officially joining Jennifer Lawrence in the upcoming young adult dystopian thriller per a press release issued by the studio.
As strongly rumored last Friday, Hutcherson has landed the role of Peeta Mellark. His character accompanies Katniss (Lawrence) to the 74th annual Hunger Games as the male representative for their district. When the Games begin, Peeta confesses his love for Katniss setting up an unusual rapport with the girl who is supposed to be his rival.
Hutcherson has appeared in the films The Kids Are All Right, Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant and Journey to the Center of the Earth, to name a few. He also starred in the currently shelved Red Dawn remake and will appear in Journey 2: The Mysterious Island.
Hemsworth won the role of Gale Hawthorne, Katniss' best friend and hunting partner. »
Hutcherson spoke with Entertainment Weekly at SXSW over the weekend and confirmed that he has had meetings (plural) with The Hunger Games movie director Gary Ross. He also claims to have read an old version of the script and, like Pettyfer and many other actors, is simply waiting to hear who has snagged the coveted role.
If Hutcherson is cast then he should have no problem handling the Peeta role. His screen credits are well beyond his age with starring roles in Bridge to Terabithia, Journey to the Center of the Earth, Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant, The Kids Are All Right, Detention (screening at SXSW), the yet-to-be-released Red Dawn remake, and coming up Journey 2: The Mysterious Island »
Tremors? Nightbreed? Sundown: The Vampire in Retreat? 976-evil? Are all on the list this year. And though there were not huge horror wins in sound editing through screenplays, the Technical Awards never cease to bring out the horror veterans. Notably Tim Drnec who contributed to such VHS classics as Alien Seed, Destroyer, and Prison won for his work on “Spydercam 3D volumetric suspended cable camera technologies.” An award also shared with Ben Britten Smith and Matt Davis who both also worked on Constantine.
But among all the winners, the Academy also honored some great loses in 2010. And though they mentioned some of our heroes, Dennis Hooper (Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2), Kevin McCarthy (Invasion of the Body Snatchers) and Dino de Laurentiis (King Kong), they did not mention Zelda Rubinstein or Corey Haim. But we will in this last section and the others lost to us last year.
So farewell fight fans and remember, »

Josh Hutcherson ('Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant'), Shanley Caswell, hottie Spencer Locke - below ('Resident Evil: Extinction'), Alison Woods, Parker Bagley, Walter Perez, Aaron David Johnson and of course the hilarious(!?) Dane Cook. Mark Palermo co-wrote the script along with director Kahn. Check out the plot and trailer below. »
Joseph Kahn is no slouch. His new school-based slasher project 'Detention' will premiere this March at the SXSW in Texas and to celebrate his speedy turnaround the first offical still from the movie has arrived online. It features young cast members and obvious slasher fodder Josh Hutcherson ('Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant'), Shanley Caswell, cutie Spencer Locke ('Resident Evil: Extinction') and Aaron David Johnson. Kahn co-scripted 'Detention' with Mark Palermo and, as you may remember, will feature a serial killer by the name of Cinderhella. Not-so-funnyman Dane Cook also stars. Check out the synopsis along with the new still and a pic of Cinderhella below. »
Summit Entertainment, the teen-centric studio that is the home of Twilight, has acquired the feature film rights for the soon-to-be-published novel "A Night Circus." Variety describes the story as "two young illusionists battling out their fathers' age-old rivalry amidst an enchanted circus, bound by a fated love, and destined to affect the lives of all around them."
This is at least the third circus-themed movie over the last couple of years. Summit's biggest star, Robert Pattinson, is in 20th Century Fox's upcoming Water for Elephants which takes place at a circus (hits theaters April 15). 2009's Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant was a tween and teen-targeted film that revolved around a circus. »
