So happy Nashville is getting a full season.

bradsonemanband 11/18/12 07:19 PM

funny that Jennifer Aniston is going to be in another movie called The Switch.

Nolessthanblink 11/18/12 07:39 PM

Tom Hardy in Splinter Cell sounds intriguing

DeviateRogue 11/18/12 08:18 PM

Lot of Video Game Adaptations, lets hope at least one is successful. Will keep my eyes out.

bobcatbob18 11/18/12 08:35 PM

Texas Chainsaw 3D clip was fucking awesome. The idea of seeing someone approaching you from far away scares the shit out of me for some reason.

signal to noise 11/18/12 09:40 PM

Matthew Vaughn directing a Star Wars film would... totally blow.

Me too. One of my favorite games to ever play.

Also. LOL at The Killing.

UnderMyDreams 11/18/12 09:46 PM

Goddamn 666 Park Ave. being cancelled.

stayillogical 11/18/12 10:03 PM

I can't wait for Star Trek Into Darkness.

Djentleman 11/18/12 10:23 PM

always felt like Texas Chainsaw Massacre was the worst of the main slasher movies\classics

fothermucker 11/18/12 10:42 PM

I'd be interesting to see what Matthew Vaughn could do with Star Wars. I've loved everything he's done so far absurd amounts. Also Arndt writing it should be awesome.

Goat01 11/18/12 10:48 PM

Tom Hardy wouldn't be my guess for Sam Fisher. intrigued.

drewbaldy 11/19/12 03:28 AM

I wish Trey Songz wasn't in Texas Chainsaw.

Edit: also, Maniac looks amazing.

sevinw0rds 11/19/12 04:53 AM

Damn, Brandon Routh can't catch a break.

bradfoshoo 11/19/12 07:00 AM

I really tried hard to like Partners, but god damnit, it was just awful. None of the jokes were funny, the gay guy was way too over the top and the straight guy was way too bland. the new odd couple thing they were trying can work, just not this way.


and last resort was an interesting concept....for a movie.

nowFace 11/19/12 10:20 AM

The Maniac trailer was pretty disturbing.

botDs-r 11/19/12 01:24 PM

Jennifer Aniston was already in a movie called The Switch so they're prob gonna rename this one.

Also the Steve Jobs movie sound interesting, but what is a neXT??

I tried watching it since I saw Sophia Bush was in it. Couldn't make it through one episode. It was rough.

Also, Alexa Vega. That is all.

That's what's up!

SensesFailTY 11/19/12 11:17 PM

Joss Whedon is clearly the best choice to pull off Star Wars.
