THE GOOD

THE WEIRD


There's a rumor that Shimizu Takashi (Japanese director of "The Grudge" and other horror films) is going to be adapting "Kiki's Delivery Service" for a live-action film! Studio Ghibli already adapted the book into an animated classic but I am all for seeing this new version. (Source: Twitch)

AND THE RANDOM



Check out the cast of "Jurassic Park" (currently in theaters for a 3D re-release) then and now.

OR THE COOL



MovieClips has another terrific supercut of the best new movie trailers of the last month, this one has a Mark Whalberg theme due to "Pain and Gain" and "2 Guns" trailers, but makes great use out of some audio clips from "Boogie Nights." Hats off to the editors behind this one.
