A Nightmare On Elm Street Trailer is Incredibly Freaky


It’s been 25 years since the original A Nightmare On Elm Street freaked people out. And since then, we’ve had something like 6 Elm Street movies, if I’m not wrong. Well, next year, we will be getting the reimagining/remake/reboot (whatever they call it these days) of the original.

The best part of the new one will definitely be the actor playing Freddy Krueger – Jackie Earle Haley. Having played Rorschach brilliantly in Watchmen just earlier this year, I cannot think of a better actor to play the infamous Freddy. Check out the trailer below to see for yourself.

A Nightmare On Elm Street is produced by Michael Bay and directed by Samuel Bayer and is slated for release in America April 30. No word of a Malaysian release date just yet.

The Princess and the Frog Poster

A couple of days ago Disney released the poster for their film The Princess and the Frog, which, of course, marks the return of hand-drawn animation. Check out the poster below.


The Walt Disney Studios continues its fairy tale legacy in animation by taking moviegoers on an all-new “once upon a time” musical adventure. Set in the legendary birthplace of jazz – New Orleans, The Princess and the Frog will introduce the newest Disney princess, Tiana, a young African-American girl living amid the charming elegance and grandeur of the fabled French Quarter. From the heart of Louisiana’s mystical bayous and the banks of the mighty Mississippi comes an unforgettable tale of love, enchantment and discovery with a soulful singing crocodile, voodoo spells and Cajun charm at every turn.

Featuring the voices of Anika Noni Rose (as Princess Tiana), Oprah Winfrey, Keith David, Jim Cummings, John Goodman, Jenifer Lewis, Bruno Campos, Michael-Leon Wooley, Peter Bartlett and Terrence Howard. Directed by and based on an original story written by Disney’s acclaimed filmmaking duo John Musker & Ron Clements (The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Hercules). Scored and music written by Oscar®-winning songwriter/composer and New Orleans native Randy Newman (Toy Story, Monsters, Inc.).

Expect The Princess and the Frog to hit theaters December 10.

Clip From Michael Jackson’s This Is It


This Is It is about the last few weeks of Michael Jackson’s life when he was hard at work rehearsing for his This Is It concerts in London. During that time, AEG Live, the organizing company recorded some 80 hours of MJ’s rehearsals. Since his death, Sony Pictures bought the rights to the rehearsal footage and have edited it into a movie that is set for release October 28 (29 in Malaysia) and will be in cinemas for a limited period of two weeks only, after which will go straight to DVD.

Just recently, the trailer to the documentary styled movie was premiered at the 2009 MTV VMAs and was then made available online. You can watch the trailer here. But now, Sony Pictures have released a short 45 second video clip of Michael Jackson rehearsing the dance steps for his song Human Nature with director, Kenny Ortega looking on. You can watch the clip below.

It still amazes me every time I see footage from the rehearsals. And it's awesome to hear Michael Jackson singing live with no music. Anyhoo, this clip has definitely made me more impatient to catch the movie.

The Wild Things desperately long for a leader to guide them, just as Max longs for a kingdom to rule. When Max is crowned king, he promises to create a place where everyone will be happy. Max soon finds, though, that ruling his kingdom is not so easy and his relationships there prove to be more complicated than he originally thought.

First Look At Jackie Chan and Jaden Smith In Kung-Fu Kid


When I first heard about our favorite The Karate Kid would be remade I was like “Oh no”. When I heard that Jackie Chan would play Mr. Miyagi and Jayden Smith as the kid, Daniel LaRusso, I was like “Oh noeeessssssss”.

Luckily they’ve decided to change it up a bit and now the official title is Kung-Fu Kid. It makes things a little better. The deal is that Dre (Hayden Smith) is a video game-loving skateboarder who’s forced to move to China with his mother (Taraji P. Henson). Dre finds it hard to settle in and doesn’t understand or speak Mandarin. He gets beat up and as a result receives kung-fu training from maintenance man, Mr. Han (Jackie Chan) and Mandarin lessons.

These two pictures are the first to come out of the set of the film. In the picture below, at first glance I thought Jackie Chan looked like Sly Stallone. Right?


Kung-Fu Kid is directed by Harald Zwart and produced by Jaden Smith’s dad, mega-star Will Smith. The film will get a US release on June 11th of next year. There’s no news on a Malaysian release date just yet.

I'm Really Happy For You And Imma Let You Finish But Paranormal Activity Has One Of The Scariest Trailers Of All Time

Paranormal_Activity_01_gallery__576x400 OK so I'm no Kanye. But it is a cool MEME and I'm loving it. Back to Paranormal Activity, it looks like a genuinely scary movie. If you're not freaked out by this trailer, you're not human. Check it out below.

Aaaaah. I get so freaked out every time I see that trailer. And I've seen it like 10 times already. Now I really cannot wait for it to come out. Unfortunately there is no news of local distribution of the film yet. Fingers crossed!

15Malaysia: Rojak!


We’ve come to the end of the 15Malaysia series of short films and the last one is called Rojak! The entire short is made to look like vector graphics and is quite nice to watch. Feels something like A Scanner Darkly, which I love.

A Rojak seller’s take on Malaysia’s multi-faceted social political tapestry. Made entirely with CGI special effects. Visually stunning.

Of course if you want to revisit the other 14 films and watch them over, you can hit up 15Malaysia.com or watch them right here on Doctor Popcorn.

15Malaysia: Lollipop


The penultimate short film of the 15Malaysia project is called Lollipop and is another one I didn’t seem to like. Directed by Nam Rom and starring Bront Palare it is a haunting portrayal of a pedophile preparing to hunt, interspersed with metaphors on the state of Malaysian politics.

You can watch the short below.

Toy Story 3 Teaser Poster


Simple yet so effective. Love it.

Expect Toy Story 3 in the summer of next year.

15Malaysia: Healthy Paranoia


One thing I really love about 15Malaysia is how it’s introduced me to the talent that is Baki Zainal. Prior to this project I barely knew of him but now I’m definitely a fan. He was brilliant in Meter and is again excellent in Healthy Paranoia. Incredibly funny. Check him out along with Dato’ Sri Liow Tiong Lai and Nick Dorian below.

An over-zealous public relations consultant advises the current minister of health how to discourage unhealthy lifestyles in Malaysia.

“We should inform the rakyat, sir. We should inform dum.” Hahahaha.

Next up: Lollipop

15Malaysia: Duit Kecil


There have been a couple of short from 15Malaysia that I didn’t like quite as much as the others. Duit Kecil is one of them and I really didn’t enjoy this at all. Maybe you would, though. Check it out below.

A man finds himself without small change in a cheap brothel. Many arguments ensue and problems faced by the Malaysian common man are discussed humorously.

Michael Jackson’s This Is It Trailer


Sony just released the trailer for Michael Jackson’s music-documentary movie This Is It. The movie consists footage of Michael Jackson’s last days as he was rehearsing in the Staples Center in preparation for his 50-date concert at the O2 Arena in London. It’s been also said that in the movie, a brand new, never before heard song by Michael Jackson will be debuted. The film is directed by Kenny Ortega who did the High School Musicals, This Is It concert and Michael Jackson’s public memorial.

The trailer features plenty of amazing shots of Michael Jackson in rehearsal with his crew while an array of his songs play in the background. It is a very well done trailer and I am looking forward to seeing this movie. Check out the trailer below.

From the press release:

Kenny Ortega directed the film, which is produced with the full support of The Estate of Michael Jackson. Ortega, director of and Jackson’s creative partner on the THIS IS IT concert, said, “This film is Michael’s gift to his fans. As we began assembling the footage for the motion picture we realized we captured something extraordinary, unique and very special. It’s a very private, exclusive look into a creative genius’s world. For the first time ever, fans will see Michael as they have never seen him before – this great artist at work. It is raw, emotional, moving and powerful footage that captures his interactions with the THIS IS IT collaborators that he had personally assembled for this once in a lifetime project. This film shows a consummate performer working with and guiding singers, dancers, band members, choreographers, special effects creators and countless other creative members of the team as we all assemble this historic concert. I can think of many words to describe Michael as he rehearses for and creates THIS IS IT– inspirational, dynamic, generous, dedicated, loving and the guiding force—you see him as the true architect and driving force of this project – a true master of his craft, the Entertainer of Entertainers. I’m proud of the many years of friendship and creative association I shared with Michael and I’m happy that people will get a chance to see his spirit and drive in action. THIS IS IT may go down as the greatest concert that no one got a chance to see, but with this film, we get a rare portrait of Michael as he prepares for his final curtain call and what I believe was going to be his master work.”

As said in the trailer, This Is It will hit theaters October 28 and will stay in cinemas for a limited time only, 2 weeks to be specific, before the movie hits DVDs. Mark your calendars people.

15Malaysia: Meter by Benji and Bahir


As we come to the end of the 15 short films there are quite a few that will really stand out and be remembered. One of those will definitely be Meter. Meter is by far and wide the most enjoyable short so far and I must say features some great acting from politician Khairy Jamaluddin. And big props has got to be given to Baki Zainal. I am a new fan. Others well known names in this short include model Amber Chia, the controversial Namewee and local artist Jason Lo. This is a must watch. So watch now! Must! Haha.

The controversial head of UMNO Youth plays a taxi driver who is asked his views on some current Malaysian talking points. He ends up offering a keris to a Chinese boy as a gift.

Robert Zemeckis' A Christmas Carol Trailer Released


Disney put out the trailer for A Christmas Carol just last night but the thing is, this trailer has been playing in theaters for a while now. But we’re grateful it has shown up on the Web nonetheless. I tried to look for one on YouTube but they were all “embed disabled”. So just click here to be redirected to YouTube where you’ll be able to watch it.

A Christmas Carol is both written and directed by filmmaker extraordinaire Robert Zemeckis, of everything from Back to the Future to Who Framed Roger Rabbit to Forrest Gump to Contact to his past CGI movies The Polar Express and Beowulf previously. It's based on Charles Dickens' classic story. Jim Carrey stars as at least four different characters in the film, alongside of Gary Oldman, Robin Wright Penn, Colin Firth, Cary Elwes, and Bob Hoskins. Disney will debut A Christmas Carol in theaters on November 6th in America and November 19 here in Malaysia.

15Malaysia: Gerhana by James Lee


The 15Malaysia project will be coming to an end on Wednesday so let’s speed up a little bit, shall we? Here is Gerhana starring Daphne Iking and Azman Hassan. Check it out below.

Two secret lovers rendezvous in a plush hotel room while TV news is read in the background. A dark take on apathy in Malaysia.

Subtitle for Pirates of the Caribbean 4 Revealed


For months now there has been talk of the 4th Pirates film to revolve around Captain Jack Sparrow in search of the Fountain of Youth. But the rumors were neither squashed nor confirmed. Recently at the D23 Disney Fan Expo, the banner above was unveiled which had the official subtitle for the film – On Stanger Tides as well as a confirmed general release period of summer 2011.

People did some digging and Cinematical found a book with the exact same name and is about pirates and the Fountain of Youth. Here’s the official synopsis of the book On Stranger Tides written by Tim Powers:

“Puppeteer John Chandagnac, bound for Jamaica to recover stolen money from his uncle, becomes Jack Shandy after pirates attack his ship and force him to join their crew. Shandy’s struggle to accept his new life grounds the story for readers, even as Blackbeard and vodun magicians whisk everyone away to dreamlike lands where the Fountain of Youth itself awaits. The chaotic sea battles sing, though at times key events happen so quickly that they get lost in the shuffle as Jack tries to comprehend where he’s going and what’s at stake.”


So what’s the deal here? Are Disney ripping off a book? Can’t be the case. Maybe they’re going to adapt the book into a movie. Either way, I’m excited for Pirates 4.

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides has Chicago director, Rob Marshall, rumored to be directing, with Johnny Depp being the only cast member we know of so far who is definitely returning (Keira Knightley has previously said no to returning). Production is supposed to start next Spring and is (as mentioned) set to be released in the summer of 2011.

New Trailer for The Twilight Saga: New Moon

When it comes to Twilight I have absolutely no idea what I'm talking about because I haven't read the books or watched the movie. So in this trailer there's some footage of the Volturi or something like that. And Dakota Fanning. I know a lot of people would be excited to see this trailer so here it is.

The Twilight Saga: New Moon hits theaters November 26.

Opening This Week: G-Force Tsunami

It is fall season now and there will be some great movies coming out in the months to come, especially in the form of Oscar-worthy films. But do not expect a blockbuster every week. This week we have an espionage movie from Hollywood starring talking mice, or are they guinea pigs? Either way, a movie about talking rodents spies. Yeah. Also, we have a Korean movie about a Tsunami.

G-Force (2009)
Starring: Nicolas Cage, Penelope Cruz, Sam Rockwell, Tracy Morgan
Director: Hoyt Yeatman
Producer: Jerry Bruckheimer
USA release: July 24
Malaysia release: September 17
USA gross: $115,700,051
Worldwide gross: $168,094,137
Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy
Runtime: 1 Hour 30 Minutes
Rated in USA: PG for some mild action and rude humor
Rated in Malaysia: U
IMDb User Rating: 4.4/10
Rotten Tomatoes: 25%
See what people on Twitter are saying about G-Force

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer brings his first 3-D film to the big screen with G-Force, a comedy adventure about the latest evolution of a covert government program to train animals to work in espionage. Armed with the latest high-tech spy equipment, these highly trained guinea pigs discover that the fate of the world is in their paws. Tapped for the G-Force are guinea pigs Darwin (Sam Rockwell), the squad leader determined to succeed at all costs; Blaster (Tracy Morgan), an outrageous weapons expert with tons of attitude and a love for all things extreme; and Juarez (Penelope Cruz), a sexy martial arts pro; plus the literal fly-on-the-wall reconnaissance expert, Mooch and a star-nosed mole, Speckles (Nicolas Cage), the computer and information specialist.

If a movie has talking 3-D animated guinea pigs in and it's not made by Pixar, you have nothing to get excited about. In fact, there's only one reason why I would consider watching this film. And that would be Jerry Bruckheimer. But I'm sure a ton of people are going to love this film. So don't listen to me when I say don't go and see this film.

Tsunami At Haeundae (2009)
Starring: Ha Ji-won, Park Joong-hoon, Sol Kyung-gu
Director: JK Youn
Malaysia release: September 17
Country: South Korea
Language: Korean
Genre: Disaster, Adventure
Runtime: 1 Hour 40 Minutes
Rated in Malaysia: PG-13
See what people on Twitter are saying about Tsunami At Haeundae

A popular vacation spot on the East Sea coast, Haeundae draws one million visitors to its beaches every year. One day, a geologist who is an expert on tsunami research, discovers the East Sea showing signs of activity similar to the Indian Ocean at the time of the 2004 Tsunami. Despite his warnings, the Disaster Prevention Agency affirms that Korea is in no harm of being hit but on a hot summer day, a super-tsunami is headed straight for Haeundae at 500 miles per hour.

It should be interesting to see how a foreign disaster movie without the financial prowess of Hollywood gets along with it's special effects and everything else.

15Malaysia: Slovak Sling by Woo Ming Jin


Here is one of my favorite 15Malaysia shorts so far and I think is better than Potong Saga as a comedy piece.

Featuring Malaysian funny-men Harith Iskandar and Patrick Teoh, Slovak Sling is directed by Woo Ming Jin and is an absolute riot. Watch it for yourself below.

A comedic re-enactment of how one politician tries to entice another to switch party allegiance as DVD pirates look on.

Where The Wild Things Are Character Posters

Now that the summer movie season is over, you might wonder what movies coming out before the year’s up are worth being excited for. Well other than the no-brainer Avatar, you should be very excited for Spike Jonze’s big-screen adaptation of Where The Wild Things Are. Here are four very cool brand new character posters.

zz1e668db1-550x802 zz6d9e0397-550x802 zz36b4c81d-550x802 zz73e21ff0-550x802

Where the Wild Things Are is directed by visionary filmmaker Spike Jonze, of films like Being John Malkovich and Adaptation previously as well as numerous famous music videos as well. The screenplay was co-written by Spike Jonze and author Dave Eggers, a former Salon.com editor who also wrote Sam Mendes' Away We Go. This is based on Maurice Sendak's beloved children's book of the same name.

American theaters will get Where the Wild Things Are October 16 but Malaysians will need to wait until November 19 to experience the fantasy.

Jason Reitman's Up in the Air Teaser Trailer is Brilliant!


If you’re like me and loved Thank You For Smoking and Juno, then you should be, as I am, very excited for Jason Reitman’s next film called Up in the Air starring the one and only George Clooney.

This trailer may be two minutes long but it’s more a teaser than a proper trailer. With Clooney doing the voice-over, the trailer features plenty of amazing individual scenes from the movie. Check it out below.

Ryan Bingham (George Clooney) is a corporate downsizing expert - someone who fires people for a living - whose cherished life on the road is threatened by young hotshot just as he is on the cusp of reaching ten million frequent flyer miles and after he's met the frequent-traveler woman he never thought he'd meet.

Up in the Air is both written and directed by Oscar nominated Canadian filmmaker Jason Reitman, of Thank You for Smoking and Juno previously. This is based on Walter Kirn's novel of the same name first published in 2001.

The official release date for Up in the Air has been up in the air for the longest time but just recently got confirmed. It will be hitting American theaters December 4, 2009 but unfortunately, Malaysians will have to wait until February 25 of next year.

15Malaysia: One Future by Tan Chui Mui


The eighth short of the 15Malaysia project is quite different from seven before it. One Future directed by Tan Chui Mui is simply a slideshow of photos of politician Tian Chua and actress Ida Nerina with narration from 15Malaysia producer Pete Teo. It may be simple but it speaks volumes. Watch it for yourself.

An edgy and powerful science fiction story of a society where everything is perfect, except no one is allowed to speak.

Opening This Week: Where Got Ugly Gamer?

This week we get a Singaporean horromedy (yes, I just made that up, well at least I think I did) and Gerard Butler stars in two very different movies. And I've also integrated some Twitter stuff into this post so make sure to utilize it.

Where Got Ghost? (2009)
Starring: Henry Thia, Jack Neo, Mark Lee
Director: Jack Neo
Singapore release: August 13
Malaysia release: September 11
Country: Singapore
Language: English, Hokkien, Mandarin
Genre: Horror, Comedy
Runtime: 1 Hour 46 Minutes
Rated in Malaysia: U
See what Twitter people are saying of Where Got Ghost?

Jack Neo's 3-in-1 horror with Singaporean humour will include "Roadside Got Ghost", "Forest Got Ghost" and "House Got Ghost".

Where Got Ghost? is a Horror-Comedy Chinese Movie. 3-in-1 Horror tales told in a good old comedy fashion.

Roadside Got Ghost: Swindlers Cai, Fu and Shou have a new scam - using a hotline to make random calls to people, promising them fortune. Those who win the lottery are required to pay commission to Cai or be scared into submission.
One day, Cai receives a phone call. The caller gives Cai deploying the same hotline trick. Believing it is a copycat of his scam, Cai naturally disregards the call, but goes ahead and tries his luck with the given number anyway. To his surprise, he wins. Mysterious happenings assume...

Forest Got Ghost: Nan and Lei return for army reservists' training. They learn that the place they will be sent is the widely known 'haunted hill', so they take the short cut. Suddenly, the 'haunted hill' seems to come alive - tombstones, red dress spirit and other strange sightings. Then it rains. Nan and Lei seek refuge at Yin Yin's house, a girl they just met. Little do they know their road to hell has been cut short...

House Got Ghost: It is the Lunar 7th Month, weird sightings happen at home, children can only think it is the late mother's doings. The truth slowly surface as they begin their road trip only this time it seems to be more than what they bargain for

Not many good horror/comedies come out of Singapore (other than Jack Neo films) but this should be one of them, so definitely should be checked out.

The Ugly Truth (2009)
Starring: Kathrine Heigl, Gerard Butler
Director: Robert Luketic
USA release: July 24
Malaysia release: September 10
USA gross: $87,565,314
Worldwide: $104,277,504
Genre: Romance, Comedy
Runtime: 1 Hour 30 Minutes
Rated in USA: R for sexual content and language
Rated in Malaysia: 18PL
IMDb User Rating: 6.5/10
Rotten Tomatoes: 60%
See what Twitter people are saying of The Ugly Truth

A romantically-challenged morning show producer (Katherine Heigl) is embroiled in a series of outrageous tests by her chauvinistic correspondent to prove his theories on relationships and help her find love. His clever ploys, however, lead to an unexpected result.

If there were ever a decent chick-flick, I think this would be it. But then again, Gerard Butler in rom-coms is just...weird.

Gamer (2009)
Starring: Gerard Butler
Directors: Brian Taylor and Mark Neveldine
USA release: September 4
Malaysia release: September 10
USA gross: $11,203,761
Genre: Action, Sci-Fi

Rated in USA: R for frenetic sequences of strong brutal violence throughout, sexual content, nudity and language
Rated in Malaysia: 18PL
IMDb User Rating: 6.6/10
Rotten Tomatoes: 18%
See what Twitter people are saying of Gamer

Gamer is a near-future action/thriller starring Gerard Butler (Kable) as the champion of an online game called "Slayers". Mind-control technology has taken society by storm and "Slayers" allows humans to control other humans in a mass-scale, multiplayer online game. With his every move tracked by millions, Kable's ultimate challenge is regaining his identity and launching an attack on the system that has imprisoned him.

Now this is the kind of role I'd like to see Gerard Butler in. Unfortunately, the film doesn't seem to be good at all.

Here are a few Twittereviews - from @elguapo1 "If you've ever wondered what it would be like to have a seizure, watch Gamer." and "Gamer made me almost want to never play video games ever again. And the whole movie was shot from the ground. Pick up the f@#$ing camera."

From @smashpop - "Just finihed watching Gamer. It gave me a headache. Rate it 5/10"

So Twitter has spoken. Do you want to get a seizure, never intend to play video games again and get a headache all at the same time? I don't think so.

Michael Jackson’s This Is It Movie Poster

Barely 3 months since his passing, Sony Pictures have released the poster for the This Is It movie. The movie, if you didn’t already know, will be a sort of music-documentary type focusing on the final couple of days of Michael Jackson’s life when he was rehearsing at the Staples Center for his 50-date This Is It concert at the O2 Arena in London, England.

Some 80 hours of rehearsal footage was captured by AEG Live, the company that organized the concert, and Sony are using a fraction of those 80 hours to make this film. The film is directed by Kenny Ortega, the same person who directed the High School Musical movies, Michael Jackson’s This Is It concert in London as well as his public memorial at the Staples Center in June. Check out the poster below.


Michael Jackson’s This Is It is set for release in America October 28 and a day later here in Malaysia.

15Malaysia: Lumpur by Kamal Sabran


Been awhile since I posted a 15Malaysia short. So here’s the one that premiered on Merdeka day last week. It’s called Lumpur and is directed by Kamal Sabran. Why is it called Lumpur, you ask? You find out at the end of the film so watch below.

A modern, poetic and beautifully constructed ode to Malaysia – its common people, places and enduring spirit.

The Walt Disney Company To Buy Marvel Entertainment For $4 Billion


I know this is pretty old news by now but I just want to write about what this deal means to everything Disney and Marvel we consume. After the announcement was made that Disney were to buy Marvel for $4 billion in cash and stocks, fanboys all over the world went “NOOOO!!” in tandem. It is pretty scary to know that fewer companies are controlling the content we consume but there are plenty of positives that can be taken out of this deal.

First off, Disney have already said that they will not interfere with the current Marvel management. Which means we will not see Mickey-man or High School Musical Origins: Troy, which is a good thing. From here on it’s just uphill.

Imagine what a powerhouse company like Disney can do with the 5,000-odd characters from the Marvel catalogue. They have already stated their plans to work on lesser known Marvel characters which should be good news for fanboys.

Also, there is the AWESOME possibility of having Pixar work on some Marvel movies. And with their Disney-ABC Television Group, don’t be too surprised to see superhero TV series to start popping up in the future and kicking Heroes’ butt.

Disney are of course known for their straight-to-television, low-budget movies like the first two High School Musicals and numerous others. So there that possibility of them making superhero movies for the Disney channel. The only problem would be the inability to include violence in the movies.

Putting the film and television industries aside, Disney also have the largest collection of theme parks and imagine how epic it would be to have Marvel superhero amusement rides.

Of course, everything above is completely hypothetical and only time will tell whether this deal will be a good one for fanboys and the general consumer alike. If Disney do what they say and leave the Marvel team to do their own thing, then I think we have nothing to worry about but a lot to be excited for. I know I’m excited!

Feel free to let me know what you think of this merger. I forgot to mention that $4 billion is a ridiculous amount of money! Spare change for Disney though, I bet.
