The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3
Films and trains: they go way back. Take the Lumière brothers' pioneering their new cinématographe invention in 1895 with “Arrival of a Train at La Ciotat” or 1903’s “The Great Train Robbery,” widely considered to be the foundation for all narrative cinema; it seems that back then, anyone holding a movie camera could think of nothing better to do with it than point it at a train. The two were, of course, born of similar mechanical, pre-electronic technology; cogs and spokes and sprockets keep a locomotive on its tracks, even as their tinier counterparts spool celluloid through a projector.

No reason at the time was given for yanking the film, but now that a trailer has arrived it's pretty obvious why it was taken out of a prime spring date and dumped in the wasteland of early January.

Even though Mel Gibson was reportedly furious about being bounced from a cameo role in Todd Phillips' upcoming "The Hangover 2," it looks like Liam Neeson, who has taken over the role, won't be on the receiving end of any phone calls with seething and heavy breathing.

Written by "Knocked Up" star Jay Baruchel with Evan Goldberg (who co-wrote "Superbad" and "Pineapple Express" with Seth Rogen), it stars Seann William Scott as a bouncer who joins a struggling hockey team, and is currently filming in Winnipeg under the eyes of "Fubar" director Michael Dowse.

About six months ago, in the midst of a brief craze for studios picking up the rights to CGI-heavy viral shorts, one of the hottest properties was Patrick Jean's "Pixels," a glorified music video which featured a swarm of pixels attacking New York, taking the form of classic 8-bit video game icons like Donkey Kong and Space Invaders (you can refresh your memory by watching the short below).
