Victor Webster checks out the team in Scorpion King 3.
A DVD premiere, the action-adventure film The Scorpion King 3: Battle for Redemption is an entry in the ever-popular and seemingly immortal franchise that spawned The Mummy and The Scorpion King movies.
The film revolves around ancient Egypt’s Mathayus (Victor Webster, Burning Palms), who was last seen celebrating a triumphant rise to power in 2008’s The Scorpion King: Rise of the Warrior. Since then, things have taken a turn for the worse: Mathayus’ kingdom has fallen and he has lost his queen to plague. Now an assassin for hire, he must defend a kingdom from an evil tyrant (Billy Zane, Magic Man) and his ghost warriors to win back the power and glory he once knew, along with the hand of a slinky princess (Krystal Vee, »

A leading lady may be chosen this weekend for the crime thriller “One Shot.” The Hollywood Reporter listed three actresses testing to star opposite to actor Tom Cruise. The three actresses are Hayley Atwell, Alexa Davalos and Rosamund Pike. Atwell recently appeared as the lead actress in the comic book film “Captain America: The First Avenger” this summer. She has appeared in several films including “The Duchess,” “Cassandra’s Dream” and television mini-series “The Pillars of the Earth.” Davalos was last seen in last year’s “Clash of the Titans.” Her filmography would also include “Defiance,” “The Mist” and “The Chronicles of Riddick.” And Pike was recently seen in several independent films such as “Made in Dagenham,” “Barney’s Version,” and “Burning Palms.” She was best known for her roles in films such as 2005’s “Pride & Prejudice,” “Die Another Day,” and “Doom.” Ironically, Pike will be seen playing Andromeda in »
Reality TV gal made good Jamie Chung and “Monsters’” Scoot McNairy will headline indie filmmaker Megan Griffiths’ latest film, the gritty drama “Eden”, about a subject matter that is anything but Eden-ish. In the film, co-written by Griffiths with Richard B. Phillips, Chung will play “a young Korean-American girl who is abducted and forced into prostitution by domestic human traffickers. Throughout the two years she is held, she ensures her own survival by carving out power and influence within the very organization that has imprisoned her.” No word on McNairy’s role, but he’s the male lead opposite Chung. Chung is one busy gal. Besides co-starring roles in “The Hangover II”, “Burning Palms”, and “Sucker Punch”, plus the upcoming “Knife Fight” with Rob Lowe and “The Man with the Iron Fists” with Russell Crowe and RZA, she’s also got something called “Premium Rush” on the way, in »
Solaris - Criterion have released a brand new high def Blu-ray of Andrei Tarkovsky's If you've never seen it, this is the time to. Panos Cosmatos (Beyond the Black Rainbow) described viewing the new print "a revelation" in his "One Scene" mini-essay. Personally, I'm happy I didn't already pick up the two disc DVD release otherwise I'd feel guilty for the double-dip.
The Big Bang - From Anchor Bay comes the Tarantino-esque neo-noir starring Antonia Banderas. I have to admit the trailer for this one caught my attention, but I have a feeling it could either be a unique off-the-wall blend of neo-noir and scifi... or a tedious exercise. We'll see I guess.
Fertile Ground - We've also got two horror releases from After Dark Originals this week. The first is this gory ghost story that comes from Ado mainstay Adam Gierasch (Autopsy, Night of the Demons). Just got a screener of this, »
For a girl who started her Hollywood career on a shitty MTV reality TV show, Jamie Chung sure has come a long way. How far has the little gal come? She’s currently co-starring in “The Hangover 2″, which should open huge this weekend. And before that, she was part of the girl ensemble in Zack Snyder’s “Sucker Punch”. She was also in a little-seen/little-known indie film called “Burning Palms”, a twisty, pervy little anthology that you’re probably better off not seeing. Next you’ll be able to catch Chung in Rob Lowe’s political indie drama “Knife Fight”, where she’ll play Rob Lowe’s assistant. In the film, Lowe will play “a political crisis manager who plays hardball for scandal-plagued clients”. The film’s cast includes Julie Bowen as “a reporter who sleeps around for scoops”, Connie Britton as “an earthy liberal running for office”, Rebecca Mader »
Hitting movie theaters this weekend:
Movie of the Week
The Plot: Right after their infamous Las Vegas bachelor party, Phil, Stu, Alan, and Doug jet to Thailand for Stu’s wedding. Stu’s plan for a subdued pre-wedding brunch, however, goes seriously awry.
The Buzz: Like many wines and cheeses before him, Hangover II writer/director Todd Phillips has aged well. With Road Trip, his directorial debut, he made a film just funny enough to facilitate the production of his 2nd film, the far superior, Old School. From there Phillips helmed Starsky and Hutch, which was respected well enough, for what it was, before taking a major misstep with School for Scoundrels. Phillips bounced back big-time from his first flop, »

Variety shared an exclusive with the world centering upon actor Dylan McDermott. He’s his own brand of McDreamy, yes? He’s also gearing up for both television and film, making him a well rounded actor this year indeed.
In addition to signing the dotted line to act in the FX pilot American Horror Story from creator Ryan Murphy, he has two, count them, two films upcoming. One is called Nobody Walks, written by Lena Dunham and Ry Russo Young (and directed by Young). McDermott joins John Krasinski, Olivia Thirlby and Jane Levy on the cast.
Perks is a novel adaptation. It’ll come via Summit, yes, the Twilight studio.
“Perks of Being a Wallflower” will be helmed and penned by Stephen Chbosky, »

Just when I thought there was no way they could do anything to make me interested in another Paranormal Activity sequel, they went and did pretty much the only thing that would actually make me excited to see it. Bloody-Disgusting is reporting confidently that Paramount is hiring up-and-coming filmmakers Henry Joost & Ariel Schulman, behind the controversial documentary Catfish last year (trailer), to direct the upcoming Paranormal Activity 3 sequel. I've been anxious to follow their careers and although there's rumors that doc will be spun off into a TV show, I'm much happier seeing them on this new project instead. In addition to filmmaking team of Joost and Schulman, Paranormal Activity 3 will have a screenplay by Christopher B. Landon (Disturbia, Burning Palms), and will be produced by Jason Blum and Oren Peli, producer/director (respectively) behind the original Paranormal. This small group is already coming off of Insidious being »

Zoe Saldana, who played the young Uhura in Jj Abrams' big-screen Star Trek revamp and Sam Worthington's blue alien lover Neytiri in Cameron's Avatar, says she too is excited about the sequels and has been trying to prise all the details from the directors.
At the Hollywood premiere of her new film Burning Palms, the 32-year-old actress admitted: "You can expect the sequels to be amazing but we're going to have to wait."
The 32-year-old says she's been pestering James Cameron and Jj Abrams to reveal some details about the plots.
She said: "I email Jim and Jj to see if I can get a little bit of information and I don't know if it's a trend of mine or if I just psychologically gravitate towards these directors that are very secretive, »

Five stories that will mess you up for life. I don't know what this is and I really have no clue what is even going on, but it looks pretty frickin' wild, almost to the point where I'm actually kind of interested in seeing it. ShockTillYouDrop recently debuted a red band trailer for an indie anthology horror film called Burning Palms. I'd never heard of it before, but it has quite a cast for an indie: Zoe Saldana, Paz Vega, Jamie Chung, Rosamund Pike, Lake Bell, Shannen Doherty, Nick Stahl and even Dylan McDermott. But if you watch this - prepare to be freaked out. There's so much odd imagery! Nothing is what it seems...

It's not every day I see a movie trailer that makes me think Wtf, but in a positive way. The new teaser trailer for the lovely Zoe Saldana's Burning Palms is magnificent and the movie looks pretty intriguing too.
The synopsis on IMDb describes it as a subversive tale that interlaces five stories set in Los Angeles, where no taboo is left unexplored as each character careens toward a dark and often comic fate. Just think of it as a dark comedy/satire, or as my favorite movie genre.
The trailer for the movie itself is »
