No one understands it -- not even New Line themselves -- but for whatever reason people like those "Final Destination" movies. Then again, that "Saw" franchise went on for seven movies and made a bundle for Lionsgate so there's no accounting for taste or quality. It seems watching people get maimed in elaborately conceived mouse traps is an ingredient for a box office win.

The Director Also Talks About What Would Have Been His Version Of 'The Hobbit' & More In Massive New Yorker TomeIf you haven't heard by now there's a massive dissertation-sized profile piece on filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro in the latest issue of the New Yorker. A fascinating read, the story, penned by Daniel Zalewski, touches on all facets of the 46-year-old filmmaker's life, from his obsession with monsters and macabre expertise in human and animal anatomy that started as a child growing up in Mexico; to his struggles with weight, his painful experiences on leaving "The Hobbit" and his Sisyphean task of bringing "At The Mountains Of Madness" to the big screen. The profile is about 20 pages long printed out and it's a full meal to digest to say the least. Touching upon "Frankenstein," to “Saturn and the End of Days,” the article doesn't even mention half the myriad projects Del Toro is working on, but one does get the sense from that filmmaker almost has too many irons in the fire and wants to make six movies at once. You're likely too busy surfing the web on your lunch break to read it all, but this is why you've got us to parse the most interesting need-to-know greatest hits of the profile.
