Trailer: ‘Bubba, the Redneck Werewolf’ (Werewolf Wednesday!)

The Devil is in town…and only Bubba the Redneck Werewolf can save it! This looks both fun and horrific, folks, based on the comic creation of Mitch Hyman.

Cracker County is under attack and lovesick dog catcher Bubba Blanche has been transformed into a ferocious, cigar smoking Werewolf in order to save the day. But first he’s got to conquer a beer or two. And maybe a plate of chicken wings.

Trailer: ‘World War Z’ (the dead travel fast, REALLY fast)

How fast is too fast for a zombie horde? Eh, who cares? This is my kind of disaster movie!

Trailer: ‘Iron Man 3’ (and the walls come a tumbling down)

One of the hallmarks of comic storylines is the reinvention of the superhero back to the status quo; no matter how epic the plot, it always seems to be the hero losing everything they held dear (place, people, things) and then getting back to exactly where they were, just in time for the next arc. This Iron Man 3 trailer feels a lot like that, but I’ll be dipped in the River Styx if it doesn’t make me wanna see it.

It’s Almost Here! Halloween Horror Nights 22 at Universal Studios

Preview: ‘The Hole’ (how deep is your love… of horror?)

Hey, remember Joe Dante, the guy that made Gremlins and Small Soldiers?

Although sitting on a shelf since 2009 (but is it still in 3-D as th old posters indicated?), it boasts Quinn Lord from Trick ‘r Treat and genre favoite Bruce Dern (yes, he’s still alive). The trailer looks like Dante’s typical kids-in-a-horror film, just serious enough to menace the tykes but could be fun. It has a limited release on September 28th, 2012 followed by a DVD, Blu-ray and VOD release on October 2, 2012.

Here’ the synopsis:

After moving into a new neighborhood, brothers Dane and Lucas, along with their neighbor Julie, discover a bottomless hole in the basement of their home. They find that once the hole is exposed, evil is unleashed. With strange shadows lurking around every corner and nightmares coming to life, they are forced to come face to face with their darkest fears to put an end to the mystery of THE HOLE.

Review: ‘The Dictator’ (committing crimes against humanity for hilarity)

Do you find rape, murder, oppression, and gross ignorance hilarious? The Dictator hopes you do.

His Excellency, Admiral General Aladeen (Sacha Baron Cohen), supreme ruler of the Republic of Wadiya, is ordered to appear before “the jackals” who run the so-called United Nations. It seems Aladeen is intent on developing nuclear weapons and, of course, refuses to let UN inspectors in to see if he’s really about to do so. Unfortunately, the world’s last dictator has envious enemies around every corner, and a vile betrayal in New York City finds Aladeen on the streets, penniless, and unrecognizable. When a local activist (Anna Faris) takes him in out of pity, Aladeen is given the means to take back his regime, but will he still be the kind of kindly, iron-fist ruler his beloved oppressed people have come to pretend to love?

Most Americans know comedic actor Sacha Baron Cohen as the voice of King Julian in the Madagascar movies, but they may also know him as Ali G, Borat, Bruno, and a host of other egotists who are so distinctly different that they are virtually unrecognizable as the same person. Cohen is a brilliantly metamorphic comedian that is rarely ever caught breaking character, but one similarity that most of the characters demonstrate is a complete disregard for anyone outside of their closed-off little worlds. Where most of Cohen’s films exploit non-actors falling for his ruse, this dictator has been banished to one of those flash-in-the-pan SNL movies, the ones that probably sounded funnier on paper and where the filmmakers had more fun than their intended audience.
