Movie News and Trailers 2 - The Sequel


Ok, I’ll watch that.



This looks pretty awesome.


close, but not quite right.



Apparently, General Mills wants a Monster Cereal Cinematic Universe:

We’re the Monsters and we want to work with you.
We’re calling all filmmakers, actors, agents, writers, producers, animators, tastemakers, dealmakers, movers and shakers.
We want to work with you to bring great stories to life. From mythical fables to magical journeys. Fairy tales to folk tales. Cliffhangers to nail-biters. Heroic sagas to cosmic battles. Binge-worthy dramas to historical epics. Blockbusters to indies. Serials to sequels.
Together, let’s captivate the hearts and minds of teens and adults.
This isn’t a contest. This isn’t a pitch for free ideas.
We humbly submit this brief to you, Hollywood.


I’ve heard worse ideas…


Name several


The first hour of Avengers.
Each Transformers movie.
Chris Evans as Captain America.


The Transformers movies are close, but still…


Get Mark Russell to write them
His Count Chocula story for Ahoy Comics was delightful


You do mean the Bay movies, right?


John Cena as Frankenberry, please.


Fun fact: The 80s Transformers movie isn’t great


Dane Cook as a leading man
Shaq as a leading man
The plot to Superman Returns (this is coming from someone who actually enjoyed the movie too)
The movie Tiptoes
Russell Crowe in Les Miserables
Remaking Psycho

I see no reason why a Count Chocula animated movie couldn’t be fun.


Yeah, and that’s what I would normally expect - something that is also darkly comedic and colourful, not just grim and dark.

But fair enough -

– I haven’t actually.

Anyway, like I said, I’m interested enough in the concept even if it’s just played straight as a horror movie.


It’s not great, but part of that may be that it’s basically the same concept as two other recent movies:

Mayhem is definitely the best of the three. Belko’s probably the weakest.


Ah, yeah, I remember the trailer for Mayhem. That one certainly looked interesting, I thought.


I hope they go all dark and gritty, like having Frankenberry ripping people into pieces, and Count Chocula savagely tearing out his victims throats in an orgy of blood and violence. Boo Berry posseses children, Fruit Brute eats people alive.

And they have to introduce a new character called “The Cereal Killer.”
