Remember that 1975 dinosaur classic The Land That Time Forgot? No? That's a shame because it was a surprisingly good little movie. Even more surprising -- production starts next week on the remake with actor C. Thomas Howell in the director's chair! How in the world did we miss this one?
Hell, if you would have told me 30 years ago that the kid who played Richie Cunningham on "Happy Days" would grow up to be one of the most influential and important directors of our time, I'd have called you crazy.

Curious about Spike Jonze's live-action adaptation of the children's book we all grew up loving? Yeah, I admit it. We are too. Good thing then that Warner Bros. released the trailer today.
It's a sad, sad day. Like many of you, we were really looking forward to the proposed zombie epic Worst Case Scenario. Alas, it's not happening now or any time soon. The project is practically DOA, but there is a bit of a Phoenix rising from its ashes.
