A Nightmare on Elm Street - Mike's 411

Well, I just got home from the midnight showing of A Nightmare on Elm Street. BOY! The theater was packed! I haven't sat in the fourth row in a long time. (LOL) What did I think of the flick...I was very entertained. Jackie Earle Haley as Freddy Krueger kicked ass. He definitely brought the perverted freak to the big screen. (LOL) This weekend, I recommend A Nightmare on Elm Street...its a perfect date flick. Plenty of jumps and scares for the ladies...and plenty of blood for you guys.

Let me know what you think...

Sleep tight...

Paramount moving forward on third 'Ring' film in 3D (exclusive)

Combining two of Hollywood's consuming passions -- sequels and 3D -- Paramount is moving ahead with a new installment of the horror thriller franchise "The Ring."

The third entry based on the Japanese horror movies is being called "Ring 3D." David Loucka, who wrote the now-shooting thriller "Dream House" for Morgan Creek, has been tapped to pen the script.

Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald are in negotiations to return as producers, and Vertigo and Benderspink are executive producing.

The original movie, an English-language remake of a 1998 Japanese film, was a critical and commercial hit when it was released in 2002, and it helped usher in a period in which Hollywood turned to Asia for horror inspiration. The movies made during that wave tended to be less gory and thus carried PG-13 ratings, and they tried to attract a more female-centric audience.

The first film also opened doors for its director, Gore Verbinski, who went on to direct Disney's "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies, and gave a bigger American platform to its Australian star, Naomi Watts. A sequel was made in 2005.

"Ring" is one of the titles left behind during the Paramount-DreamWorks split and was thought to have been inactive.

The plot of the original film centered on a young journalist investigating a mysterious videotape that seemed to cause the death of anyone within a week of viewing it.

The new film is being fashioned as more teen-centric than the first, and though the logline is being kept under wraps, the aim is to reinvent the franchise. One potential scenario involves teens finding a VHS player that still works.

No director is on board.

Loucka is on a bit of a hot streak, with "Ring" the third high-profile project in which he's involved. In addition to "Dream House," which stars Watts and Daniel Craig, the Original Artists-repped scribe penned the most recent draft of "House at the End of the Street," a horror thriller from FilmNation scheduled to go before cameras this summer.

'Monsters Inc. 2' Churns Out Release Date

Pixar's Monsters Inc. 2 will come out of the closet in 3D on Nov. 16, 2012, Walt Disney Pictures announced today, while another Pixar picture, The Bear and the Bow, gets a title change to Brave and a new release date, June 15, 2012.

Marking Pixar's fourth sequel following Toy Story 2, Toy Story 3 and Cars 2, Monsters Inc. 2 will mirror the holiday launch of its predecessor, only it won't open as early due to DreamWorks Animation's The Guardians (working title) occupying the Nov. 2, 2012, slot.

The first Monsters, Inc. was Pixar's fourth tremendous success. It debuted Nov. 2, 2001, and raked in $62.6 million its first weekend (or around $85 million adjusted for ticket price inflation). It went on to gross $255.9 million (which is comparable to nearly $350 million today), and it didn't hit DVD until Sept. 17, 2002.

Previously scheduled for Christmas 2011, Brave is reportedly about a defiant Scottish princess, and it continues Pixar's June release strategy. Pixar's next release is Toy Story 3 on June 18, while Cars 2 motors in a year later on June 24, 2011.

Pixar had a smashing success with Toy Story 2 in 1999, Toy Story 3 appears poised to continue that trend, and Monsters Inc. 2 should have similar "return-of-old-friends" appeal (Cars 2 is more questionable). With more sequels than original fare currently scheduled, Pixar is milking its brand credibility, which is currently the best in the business with ten blockbusters in a row from Toy Story in 1995 on through to Up in 2009. Those ten movies have grossed over $2.4 billion (or the equivalent of nearly $3.2 billion adjusted).

Both Monsters Inc. 2 and Brave are currently the only movies scheduled for their respective dates.
