Grindhouse Posters: With Amputees!


The poster for Planet Terror is more than it first seems. If you look carefully, you'll see that it's not just a gun pictured. There's also a woman. And if you look closer, she's actually attached to that gun. That's right, it's a woman with a gun for a leg. It's bad news for her enemies, good news for a guy who might be sitting in front of her when she aims it, since he might get to see her cooter if it's a high enough target.

I can't wait for this Quentin Tarantino & Robert Rodriguez
Double Feature!

Iron Man to Fight Mandarin, Possibly While Resembling This


Hey, Iron Fans! Here's a teaser poster for Jon Favreau's Iron Man movie. He says it's not the final design for the suit, and I'm glad. I say if you call it "Iron Man" you dress him like the Iron Man guys from ESPN 2. Just a tank top, shorts, 80 pounds of excess fat, and the shameful expression of knowing you routinely train yourself to competitively lift slot machines in a wheelbarrow.
Also the villain of the film is going to be Mandarin. You know, the Chinese guy with all the magic rings.

Deadman Coming to Theatres

Hot news, fans of comic book heroes! Hellboy director Guillermo del Toro is in negotiations to act as producer in bringing the DC comic Deadman to the screen. If you don't know the character:

Deadman is the ghost of a circus acrobat named Boston Brand, who was murdered during a trapeze performance. His spirit was granted the power by a Hindu goddess to possess any living being in order to find his killer. In the ensuing search, Brand finds himself obliged to help others.
I think the only way they're making this one work is if they get a big name or an actual dead man, both of which can be found in Keith Richards. How about it, buddy?

Deliver Us From Evil Finds Distribution

If the Catholic church hated The Da Vinci Code, wait until they see this one. Lionsgate announced they will distribute Deliver Us From Evil, a documentary about a serial raping pedophile priest:
Lionsgate announced today it has acquired domestic distribution rights to Deliver Us From Evil, a documentary about a pedophile Catholic priest whose serial rapes were known to, and concealed by, the American Church for over 30 years.
I hope this one does well. Not so much because I care about exposing corruption in the Catholic church, but because I'd like to see it remade as a comedy with Will Ferrell. I think he could bring a lot of laughter to serial raping pedophilia.

Man, Grindhouse looks awesome. Love how they are so faithfully doing throwbacks to the 70s. Good stuff.

I never really liked Ironman all that much, Stark, that drunken bum. But that poster looks pretty sweet.
