Tomorrow a brand new edition of the original 1951 masterpiece The Day the Earth Stood Still will street on both a standard def 2-disc and a Blu-ray Special Edition. That’s a good reason to smile.

It was about a year ago I reviewed a movie called Zombeak! that billed itself as a the world's first satanic killer chicken movie.

All right, the day for feasting has finally come! Time to gather with friends, family or random strangers and attempt to eat your own body weight in dead bird! Ah, America, where we celebrate kicking the collective ass of an entire culture by being gluttonous pigs. Love it!
It’s been a long time since we’ve heard hide or hair about Black Death, the post-apocalyptic medieval film we first mentioned back in February. Thankfully we can not only give you more on the film itself, but the goods news that Severance (review) director Christopher Smith is now at the helm!
You’ve probably seen this elsewhere. Now you’re seeing it here. Below is the new web-only “poster” for Terminator Salvation, courtesy of the nice folks at Warner Bros. It’s like lenticular, only better!
