Stretch Armstrong

Another project we haven’t heard from in a while is the movie based on the popular Hasbro toy, Stretch Armstrong.

The movie was once set up at Universal Pictures with The Twilight Saga star Taylor Lautner attached to star, but it has since departed Universal and found its way to Relativity Media’s doorstep, who have been developing it since.

No actors are attached to star in the new attempt at making the movie yet, but the studio has found their director. It’s being reported that they’ve entered into negotiations with Breck Eisner to sit in the director’s chair, working from a script by Dean Georgaris.

Movie Review: The Crazies (2010)

The CraziesThe Crazies
Directed by Breck Eisner
Starring Timothy Olyphant, Radha Mitchell, Danielle Panabaker, Joe Anderson.
Rated R
Release date: February 26, 2010

A military plane carrying a biological weapon crashes near an Iowa farm town, the people start becoming infected due to the effects of the weapon, the military gets involved and everyone has to run for their lives. If this sounds like a movie you have seen before, and not just because it is a remake of the 1973 film by George A. Romero, you are probably right. But I doubt it’s ever been as much fun.

Speaking of, let’s get something out in the open before we even get started. I know The Crazies isn’t movie about zombies in the truest sense, but purists be damned, it really is a zombie movie. It is not a faceless killer running amok; these are your friends and people you know infected by something unknown causing them to act… we’ll say “out of sorts.” I’ve always liked that level of emotion built into the zombie (and zombie-like) movie. If it were a typical horror movie there would be definitive bad guys. They threaten you, you kill them, end of story. No love lost. When the zombie apocalypse finally happens, the infected could very well be your wife, your friends, or your children. The survival aspect is compounded by potentially having to kill someone you know to stop them from killing you, eating your brains, lighting you on fire, chewing your face off doing you harm.

Spoiler Talk: The Crazies

2010-02-27_the_crazies_movie_posterJust got out of an early morning showing of The Crazies here on the West Coast and I’m ready to talk some spoilers!

A reinvention loosely based on the George Romero classic of the same name, The Crazies is about the inhabitants of a small Iowa town suddenly plagued by insanity and then death after a mysterious toxin contaminates their water supply. The Breck Eisner film stars Timothy Olyphant, Radha Mitchell, Danielle Panabaker, and Joe Anderson.

I had a lot of fun with The Crazies. It was tense, had good suspense, had great pacing, was shot well and most certainly looked better than the $20 million budget would lead you to believe. The film definitely deserves its place among the ranks of well made horror/suspense films.

If you have seen The Crazies, then, it’s time for SPOILER TALK! Below are some of my spoiler-filled thoughts on the film, and as always, remember to leave your thoughts about the movie here below in the Comments section.

Come And Meet ‘The Crazies’ With New Trailers, Images & Synopsis!

The Crazies (2010) movie poster

If you haven’t heard of the new movie, The Crazies, then this is your chance to overload on imagery, trailers, and a fat and juicy synopsis to fill your brain with the ingredients necessary to decide if this movie is indeed for you!

The movie is actually a remake of a 1973 George A. Romero film of the same name. It takes place in your normal, everyday small town where everyone knows each other and gets along fine before some sort of mysterious toxin is released into the water supply. For those who are affected by the toxin, they slowly lose their grasp on sanity at first, and develop a violent nature. Before long, they go completely insane and want nothing but to kill everything that moves.

It’s no surprise that the movie has come from the brain of George Romero…it certainly has the “zombies with a twist” vibe to it much like The Signal. It also has a kind of The Happening feel to it, but certainly looks like it could be a hell of a lot better than that was!

Click on over to the other side to read the official synopsis, watch a few trailers, and check out a few images as well!
