If you like horror anthologies like V/H/S, The ABCs of Death or S-VHS, then you might want to put Sanitarium on your radar. A new red-band trailer is now available for the picture, which features segments directed by Bryan Ramirez, Kerry Valderrama and Bryan Oritz. Sanitarium features a trio of stories that each take place within the titular institution and focus on a different patient. Malcolm McDowell, who narrates the trailer, appears to be the head doctor who likely connects each of the segments together. Also starring Robert Englund, Lacey Chabert, Lou Diamond Phillips and John Glover, Sanitarium will make its world premiere on March 1st at the Miami International Film Festival. Hit the jump to watch the red-band trailer.
In the Smallville episode “Luthor,” premiering on December 3rd, Tess (Cassidy Freeman) acquires a Kryptonian box that once belonged to Lionel Luthor (John Glover). When Clark Kent (Tom Welling) accidentally activates the box, he’s transported to a parallel universe where Lionel found Clark in the cornfields instead of the Kents. In this universe, everything is different – Clark Luthor is a murderer and Lois Lane (Erica Durance) is engaged to Oliver Queen (Justin Hartley) – and Clark Kent must figure out how to get back to Earth where Clark Luthor was transported in his place.
Now in its 10th and final season, this modern retelling of a hero’s legendary origins is upping the stakes for everyone, as it nears its series conclusion. In a recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, actress Cassidy Freeman, who plays a character that walks a fine line between good and villainous herself, talked about how surprised she’s been by Tess’ emotional depth over the last couple of seasons, how incredible it was to find out that Tess is actually a Luthor, what it’s been like to work with Tom Welling as both a co-star and a director, and the fact that there are qualities in Tess that she both admires and would like to change. She also said that there are some things that she’d definitely like to take with her from the set, once the series is done. Check out what she had to say after the jump:
This December, you’re probably going to be on “The Grid” whether your like it or not. Disney is marketing the hell out of their upcoming blockbuster TRON: Legacy, which opens in 3D on December 17th. You also have the soundtrack by Daft Punk on December 7th, and then there’s the video game tie-in, TRON: Evolution getting released the same day. Video game tie-ins rarely pan out, but there are few movies that lend themselves to a video game adaptation as well as TRON. However, when you have a world that showcases light cycle races and disc wars, that leads to high expectations. Hopefully, TRON: Evolution can deliver.
Today, we have two videos for the game. First is a cut-scene which showcases the villain Abraxas (voiced by Smallville‘s John Glover) tearing up the joint. We also have a featurette that showcases the game’s voice acting. I always think it’s great when actors from the film come in and lend their voices to the game. The featurette talks with actors Olivia Wilde, James Frain, and Bruce Boxleitner, as well as Jensen Ackles (Supernatural), who isn’t in the movie, but is still great. Hit the jump to check out both videos. TRON: Evolution will be available for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Nintendo DS, PlayStation Portable, and PC. There will also be a “Collector’s Edition” for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
Here’s a trio of TV casting additions coming your way! First up, CBS announced today via press release that Michael J. Fox will guest star on the forthcoming season of The Good Wife where he’ll actually be facing off against series star Julianna Margulies. He’ll play Simon Canning, a shrewd and cynical litigator whom Alicia (Margulies) faces in a massive class action. Canning is willing to use anything in court, including symptoms of his neurological condition, to create sympathy for his otherwise unsympathetic client: a giant pharmaceutical company.
Despite his debilitating Parkinson’s disease keeping him from taking on more roles, Fox has previously been able to take on multi-episode arcs on shows like Scrubs, Boston Legal and Rescue Me (though he’ll only appear on one episode of The Good Wife). Fox has always been a favorite of mine from Back to the Future to Spin City and it’s a shame we don’t get to see him more often. Hit the jump for new casting for the final season of Smallville and NBC’s forthcoming remake of The Rockford Files.
