Looks like the final film in the Twilight saga needs a little more work, as the cast and crew are off to Vancouver to do some re-shooting. Now, don't get me wrong - they've got time, but cor, that's a bit frustrating, isn't it?

Vamp it up: The Moth Diaries trailer is here

Do you enjoy whimsical chick flicks and romantic comedies? If so then this trailer isn't for you. Mary Harron's The Moth Diaries looks to be a psychological horror about female adolescence that is going to be chilling. Don't be fooled by the title.

Taylor Lautner leaves Stretch Armstrong, film changes studios

Taylor Lautner leaves Stretch Armstrong, film changes studios

So, yeah. Taylor Lautner was due to play Stretch Armstrong. No, you heard right. The stretchy toy bloke we all had as kids. But he's left, and the film's switched studios. Good move? Yep. What I don't get about Taylor Lautner is that he's actually got a reasonable amount of potential, but keeps finding himself in the world's stupidest roles on...

George Takei calms fanboys, attacks Twilight

If you were hoping George Takei, aka Sulu in the original Star Trek would come out with a masterful response to the Wars-Trek fan war, you might be disappointed. I like George Takei. He's a funny guy, and hearing that he had waded into the fight between Star Wars and Star Trek fans to try and calm everyone down was welcome news. However, he...

Parenting 101: Welcome to the Rileys – Review

Two leads from very different franchises - Twilight and The Sopranos - come together to form something of an odd couple in the heart-strings manipulator, Welcome to the Rileys.

Red Riding Hood – Review

Red Riding Hood – Review

It is, perhaps, plausible that a film directed by Catherine Hardwicke, produced by Leonardo DiCaprio and starring Amanda Seyfried might have made for a half-way decent adaptation of the classic fairytale, Little Red Riding Hood. Unfortunately, somewhere along the way, something has gone horribly, horrible wrong. Red Riding Hood drops the...

R-Patz: A little odd?

People watching the MTV Movie Awards this year may have been caught slightly off-guard by Robert Pattinson's odd behaviour. We were, too. I've got a lot of time for Pattinson, given that he's a good actor and he's able to switch between roles in serious films (Water for Elephants) and roles in far less-serious films (Twilight). He's a darling...

It seems that when Deon Taylor and Michael J. Pagan sat down to write Chain Letter, they gave themselves a check list so that they could create the most formulaic teenage horror romp ever.
