The Weekly Wrap-Up: December 13-19, 2008

In keeping with the holiday spirit, this week's Wrap-Up is being delivered in verse a la The Twelve Days of Christmas. If anyone else wants to throw out some ideas for The Eight Nights of Chanukah or The Seven Days of Kwanzaa in the comments section below, feel free.

Make a Date with Jennifer's Body

The new horror-comedy written by screen-scribe Diablo Cody, and directed by Karyn Kusama, Jennifer's Body starring Megan Fox has finally been granted a release date from 20th Century Fox.

Killer Movie DVD Art and Specs

The smash slasher from last year's Tribeca Film Festival. Jeff Fisher's Killer Movie is set to hit home on February 3rd, from Peace Arch Entertainment, and we've got the goods on what you can expect from the DVD! Official Synopsis:

Boss Battle Clips from Resident Evil 5!

Curious about what kind of bosses will be waiting to tear us apart in Capcom's latest entry into their premier survival franchise, Resident Evil 5? Wonder no longer!

Red Walking Distance Trailer Now Online!

Just a couple of days ago we provided you with an exclusive first look at the "Black" trailer for indie director Mel House's new project, Walking Distance.

Exclusive Clip From Pulse 3!

Just in time for Christmas, the third and final (?) chapter in the Pulse trilogy will be hitting DVD, and the cool folks over at Dimension Extreme have donated an exclusive clip to us to share with you guys! Check it out belo, and then scroll down to pre-order Pulse 3 through Evilshop!

Four More MST3K Episodes on DVD

Shout! Factory has announced the impending release of four new episodes of the great and grand Mystery Science Theater 3000.

Barbarash Chosen for Hybrid!

Though it’s been relatively quiet from the Studio 407 team as of late, that doesn’t mean nothing’s been going on. The comic company continues to develop its titles into flms through their partnership with Myriad Pictures, the first of which being the creature feature Hybrid. Today they named Cube: Zero helmer Ernie Barbarash as the director of Hybrid; a very good sign that things are moving along.

Andeson Talks Resident Evil 4, Castlevania Status

As an early Christmas presents for fans everywhere, IGN got word today that Paul W.S. Anderson is currently working on the script for Resident Evil IV! It’s so exciting I can barely contain myself.

Final Art for Turner's Red Sands

I feared it would be bad, but I really didn’t think it’d be this bad. “Spirits take no prisoners”? What the hell kind of tag line is that? Something tells me this is not the vision director Alex Turner had for Red Sands, formerly known as The Stone House, when he set out to make the film.

Killer Bees, Japanese Style, Coming to DVD

When you think about places prone to falling victim to killer bee attacks you usually think South and Central America, Mexico, and parts of the Southern and Southwestern United States. Japan is not a place you think about when you think about killer bees. But that's about to change with the impending DVD release of the Japanese nature gone amok flick Killer Bees.

New Offspring Pics, Screening Update

It seems to me that the guys over at ModernCine really know when they’re doing when it comes to getting films done. Their production on The Girl Next Door was very quick, as was the cinema vérité Home Movie. Just a few months ago we got the first word on their adaptation of Jack Ketchum’s Offspring; now the film is done and ready for its first screenings!

Another Underworld 3 Poster

All right, this poster for Underworld: Rise of the Lycans actually has a character who plays a Lycan as its focal point, which is a step in the right direction, but it’s still not what I asked for, damnit.

Benicio Talks Wolfman

Even though MTV’s movie news seems as obsessed with Twilight as your average 12-year-old girl in the last few months, now and then they do manage to break out and talk to people about real movies, like the Joe Johnston-helmed Wolfman redux.

Dead by Dawn Teaser Lives

An update just fell into our inbox from the guys at Backwoods Entertainment about their follow up to the well-received indie Marcus (review), Dead by Dawn. Yeah, I know, not the most inspired of titles, is it?
