Upcoming Film Preview: Detention

Upcoming Film Preview: Detention
Directed By: Joseph Kahn
Starring: Josh Hutcherson, Dane Cook, Spencer Locke, Shanley Caswell
Country: USA
Release Date: April 13, 2012

Plot Synopsis: (from Wikipedia)
The film centers around Riley Jones (Shanley Caswell), a clever but cynical social outcast at Grizzly Lake High School who is harboring an unrequited love for ironically named hipster, Clapton Davis (Josh Hutcherson) who is in turn, head over heels for Ione (Spencer Locke), a beautiful but self-absorbed cheerleader. All four are waiting out their final year of high school, but it's anyone's guess if they'll ever see graduation, as a serial killer known as Cinderhella is on the loose and preying on Grizzly Lake's student body. The principal (Dane Cook) is certain Cinderhella is a disgruntled student and figures he can keep the prom from turning into a bloodbath by putting the likely suspects in all-day detention on the day of the big dance.

If the inclusion of Dane Cook doesn't scare you off, this one actually looks pretty interesting. I'm all for slashers, even if a lot of them turn out like Laid to Rest. You can check out the trailer here:

Just when you think it can't get any worse...

Platinum Dunes buys the rights to the Halloween franchise.

from Screenrant.Com

Hot on the heels of the news that Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes is developing a controversial rebooting of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series comes word that the company is taking control of yet another iconic slasher horror franchise. That’s right, the next Halloween movie looks to be released under the company’s supervision.

For those who haven’t been keeping track: Platinum Dunes was also responsible for the remakes/reboots of Friday the 13th, Nightmare on Elm Street, Amityville Horror, Texas Chainsaw Masscre, and The Hitcher – all of which have premiered in theaters over the past ten years to decent financial returns ( and generally weak critical reception).

At this point, I honestly don't care what becomes of this franchise. Rob Zombie already railroaded it with his ridiculous reboot and its sequel. Alright, I actually did enjoy watching the sequel because it was interesting to see how dumb Zombie thinks his audience is. Nevertheless, does anyone care about this anymore?
