A new interview with The Flash star Tom Cavanagh has plenty of new footage from the pilot packed into its one-minute run-time.  Cavanagh plays Dr. Harrison Wells who oversees the team of Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker) and Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes) at Central City’s S.T.A.R. Labs.  He explains the process of reviving Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) after his fortuitous accident, and introduces the scientists who are caring for him.  It’s not much in the way of interviews, but it’s a great early look at the pilot for The Flash before it debuts on The CW later this fall.  Hit the jump to take a look.

With twice the terror and double the D’s of the first film, Piranha 3DD (opening in theaters and available on VOD on June 1st) sees the flesh-eating fish return to sink their razor sharp teeth into the visitor’s of The Big Wet Water Park.  This time there is more insanity, more blood, more boobs and even David Hasselhoff to add to all the zany fun.  The film stars Danielle Panabaker, David Koechner, Matt Bush, Chris Zylka, Katrina Bowden, Jean-Luc Bilodeau, Christopher Lloyd and Gary Busey.

At the film’s press day, I had the opportunity to speak with co-stars Danielle Panabaker and David Koechner about what they thought when they heard the title of the film, how things are bigger and more outrageous this time, the evolution of the piranha, more breasts, really committing to making the film funny and real, how they took the most outrageous of every take and put it in the movie, and what they each have coming up next.  Hit the jump to watch:

A batch of new images from Piranha 3DD has gone online, but with a title like that one doesn’t really need much more elaboration in order to decide if the film is up his or her alley.  Yes, the images highlight lots of boobs and blood, but we also get new looks at stars David Hasselhoff and David Koechner.  Yesterday we brought you a new clip from the film with a nice Baywatch nod, which you can check out right here.

New PIRANHA 3DD Clip Features Slo-Mo David Hasselhoff and BAYWATCH Nostalgia

Dimension Films is doubling your pleasure with a second helping of boobs, blood and killer fish in this summer’s Piranha 3DD. For a while now, I thought the extra D was a cleverly disguised breast joke, but apparently it stands for “David,” as in David Hasselhoff. This new clip from the film features The Hoff in his oh-so-familiar role as a lifeguard.  Fans of the glory days of Baywatch will get a kick out of the segment and the humor aimed at an aging Hasselhoff is spot-on to what you can expect from Piranha 3DD. Be sure to check out the trailer, red-band trailer, posters and images, as well.  The film stars Danielle Panabaker, Matt Bush, Chris Zylka, Meagan Tandy, Katrina Bowden, David Koechner, Christopher Lloyd, Ving Rhames, Paul Scheer, and Gary BuseyPiranha 3DD opens June 1st.  Hit the jump to check out the new clip.

7 New Images from PIRANHA 3DD

Dimension Films has unleashed seven new images from the gore-heavy sequel Piranha 3DD.  They highlight everything we expect to see from the follow-up to Piranha 3D: good looking girls in swimsuits, Ving Rhames with a gun attachment instead of a leg, and David Hasselhoff.  The sequel moves the action to a water park that’s (naturally) kept safe by stripper lifeguards, and I’m assuming much nudity and/or carnage ensues.

Hit the jump to check out the images.  The film also stars Danielle Panabaker, Matt Bush, Chris Zylka, Meagan Tandy, Katrina Bowden, David Koechner, Christopher Lloyd, Paul Scheer, and Gary Busey.

A red-band trailer for Piranha 3DD has gone online.  Like the first movie, the sequel is all about boobs and blood, but this trailer is mostly about the former rather than the latter.  Yes, the trailer has plenty of killer-fishy menace, but don’t expect seeing any gruesome kills.  Instead, expect to see lots of bare breasts, and I assume no one will complain about that.

Hit the jump to check out the red-band trailer.  The film stars Danielle Panabaker, Matt Bush, Chris Zylka, Meagan Tandy, Katrina Bowden, David Koechner, David Hasselhoff, Christopher Lloyd, Ving Rhames, Paul Scheer, and Gary BuseyPiranha 3DD currently does not have a release date.

First Trailer for PIRANHA 3DD

The first trailer for Piranha 3DD has gone online.  For everyone who loved the first movie, the new trailer wants to let you know, “All that stuff you liked?  The boobs, the gore, the silliness, and all that stuff?  Yep.  That’s all here.  Enjoy.”  There seems to be some creative kills in store in addition to the goofiness of stripper-lifeguards and Ving Rhames-Gunlegs.  My only problem with this trailer is the notable absence of Gary Busey.  Hopefully, we’ll see him and his piranha-related lunacy soon.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer.  The film also stars Danielle Panabaker, Matt Bush, Chris Zylka, Meagan Tandy, Katrina Bowden, David Koechner, David Hasselhoff, Christopher Lloyd, and Paul Scheer. Piranha 3DD currently does not have a release date.

Teaser Trailer for PIRANHA 3DD

I haven’t gotten around to seeing Alexandre Aja’s remake of Piranha 3D, but I heard good things all around regarding its creative kills, delightful stupidity, and all-around exploitative nature.  It’s a movie that knows what it wants to be an pulls it off.  That general consensus combined with a solid box office performance has led to the sequel Piranha 3DD.  The new film has the carnivorous fishies headed to a water park, which aren’t really sanitary places to begin with.  Dimension Films premiered the first trailer last night at the SpikeTV Scream Awards and it looks like they’ve definitely got the “DD” part down.  Also, Ving Rhames’s character apparently shops at the same prosthetics store as Cherry Darling.  I have no complaints about gun-legs.

Hit the jump to check out the teaser trailer.  The fish food cast also includes Danielle Panabaker, Matt Bush, Chris Zylka, Meagan Tandy, Katrina Bowden, David Hasselhoff, Christopher Lloyd, Paul Scheer, and Gary Busey.  Piranha 3DD opens next year.

THE WARD Blu-ray Review

by     Posted 2 years, 335 days ago

the-ward-blu-ray-slice

John Carpenter is an old man, and he makes old man films. In one way that’s refreshing. He knows where to put his camera in a sequence with multiple people. He knows when to use a close up, and never shoots a film like it’s a TV show. But he’s also a man without a country in new Hollywood, working with low budgets and ambling on with no great respect from those who’ve ripped him off. His latest film, The Ward, was given limited theatrical release before hitting home video. It stars Amber Ward, Danielle Panabaker and Jared Harris in a tale about young girls in the 1960’s who are stuck in a mental institution with a ghost. Our review of the Blu-ray of the The Ward follows after the jump.

PIRANHA 3DD Stunt Casting Continues as David Hasselhoff Joins the Cast

by     Posted 3 years, 74 days ago

david-hasselhoff-puppies-slice-01

Piranha 3DD clearly has no desire to be considered a real movie and if attempting to top their previously-announced stunt casting of Gary Busey by hiring David Hasselhoff.  Unfortunately, nothing beats Busey.  The new film takes place at a water park so perhaps Hasselhoff will be playing a lifeguard.  You know, because he was a lifeguard on Baywatch.  So clever, Piranha 3DD.

The film also stars Ving Rhames, Christopher Lloyd, Paul Scheer, Katrina Bowden, Danielle Panabaker, Matt Bush, Chris Zylka, and David Koechner.  Piranha 3DD opens in 3D on November 23rd.

Gary Busey Joins PIRANHA 3DD

by     Posted 3 years, 88 days ago

gary-busey-piranha-3d-slice-01

Gary Busey, currently known for the best set of crazy eyes this side of Michelle Bachmann, has joined the cast of Piranha 3DD.  The press release describes Busey’s role as “potential fish bait”, but no matter his character, I seriously doubt he’ll be asked to give a performance equal to his Oscar-nominated turn as Buddy Holly in The Buddy Holly Story.  That’s right: Gary Busey was a serious actor at one point and not just a walking punchline.  But since Piranha 3DD is tongue-in-cheek (before angry fish devour your tongue and cheek), I don’t think that should be a problem.  Hopefully, the resurgence of Busey will lead to Comedy Central finally releasing the short-lived series I’m With Busey on to DVD.

Piranha 3DD also stars Danielle Panabaker, Matt Bush, Chris Zylka, David Koechner, and Meagan Tandy.  The film is due out in 3D on November 23rd.

THE CRAZIES Blu-ray Review

by     Posted 4 years, 31 days ago

timothy_olyphant_the_crazies_movie_image_slice

Every once in a while, you’ll hear a disturbing news account of some mild mannered office employee who suddenly opened fire on his coworkers, a quiet student who abruptly turned his classmates into target practice or a nice father who shockingly hacked his family to pieces. The Crazies preys on our fears of these random, unexpected acts of violence, most effectively in its opening sequence, in which a small town father shows up at a local baseball game presumably loaded and carrying a loaded weapon.  More after the jump:
