Theatrical Release Still Planned For OctoberWatching Kevin Smith backpedal and rationalize is both amusing and exhausting and we have better things to do with our day, so here's the short version. Back in January, Smith made a big dog and pony show about how he was going to auction the rights to his indie horror film "Red State" right after the screening in Sundance, before surprising (and angering) everyone by selling the movie to himself for $20 in a big grand statement of rebelliousness. “We’re starting over,” Smith told the audience after his announcement. “It’s not just about making the movie, it’s about releasing the movie. True independence is not about handing your work over to some jackass.” Unless those jackasses happened to be named Lionsgate.

We've really been digging the trailers so far for the Guillermo Del Toro produced "Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark," and while reviews have been mixed from the Los Angeles Film Festival this weekend where it played, we're keeping the flame alive that this will be worth some genuine chills.

A couple of deleted scenes for you that should satisfy curious film fans looking for a little more from two movies that hit multiplexes earlier this year.

Much of moviemaking is about having good instincts combined with a little bit of luck, and for actor Peter Facinelli, it looks like he's got both in spades.

So how many Frankenstein movies are in development in Hollywood? Well Guillermo del Toro has a take; “Limitless” helmer Neil Burger has a remake of “Bride of Frankenstein” at Universal; “Tomorrow, When the War Began” director Stuart Beattie is attached to the comic book adaptation “I, Frankenstein”; Summit has “This Dark Endeavor,” a collaboration between “Mean Creek” writer Jacob Estes and “Let Me In” director Matt Reeves; and Fox just hired Max Landis for another version of the movie monster. But it looks like an indie production will beat all the major players to the big screen and it will star an actor we haven't seen in a long, long time.

Harrison Ford Says What We're All Thinking, Calls LaBeouf A "Fucking Idiot"It appears that Shia LaBeouf has a mouth that can't be stopped. Just a few weeks after the actor dumped on his former co-star Megan Fox, claiming her unforgivable "Spice Girl strength" and her inability to handle Michael Bay's meticulous directions on where to point her ass got her fired from this weekend's "Transformers: Dark of the Moon." Now, a new Details magazine feature on the actor finds him using the opportunity to throw Fox under the bus yet again, albeit this time in a wholly different way.

Co-written, directed by and starring Tom Hanks, "Larry Crowne" is an upbeat look at a life completely rebuilt. Despite the timely plotline -- a man fired from his job must completely reverse his life direction -- the film itself is filled with good-natured laughs, a beautiful setting in Southern California, an odd performance from George Takei and a lot of hope. In fact, one of the primary questions we were left with was, where's the conflict? But while these characters certainly face challenges, the tone remains rather light, which, according to the filmmakers, was what they intended. As Hanks' co-writer on the film, Nia Vardalos explained, "This is not a downer movie, this is an uplifting movie and yet it is not out of the realm of ordinary."

Better get out that red marker and maybe an eraser, as the movie calendar has an addition and an amendment to be made.

A couple of things we didn't know about Alice Cooper: he still has a pretty big fanbase even though he hasn't released anything musically relevant in decades (nor has he been culturally relevant in that same span of time) and he's sponsored by Mac cosmetics. Huh. Anyway, the musician and born again Christian may make a ghoulish appearance in Tim Burton's upcoming "Dark Shadows."

That Other Title Was BetterEarlier this spring, Marc Canton, producer of the upcoming "300" sequel "Xerxes" said that a script had been delivered by Zack Snyder and Kurt Johnstad, adding “I feel like it’s gonna happen and we’re close.” Well, they're nearly there and it has a new title.
