The first trailer for the new Resident Evil movie — Resident Evil: Afterlife, which stars Milla Jovovich (pictured), Ali Larter, and Wentworth Miller — has turned up online. The clip’s arrival follows its premiere at Wondercon yesterday where director Paul W.S. Anderson recalled how he decided to make the fourth film in 3D after James Cameron showed him footage from Avatar a year ago. Indeed, the Afterlife clip itself boasts that the film was, “Filmed with the James Cameron/Vincent Pace Fusion Camera System.” Snappy! READ FULL STORY

Thanks to Rob Zombie‘s mom for putting CSI: Miami on her son’s radar. The horror wizard directs tonight’s new episode (CBS, 10 p.m. ET), just as the TV-viewing audience emerges from a 17-day hibernation period in which our loofahs remind us of Olympic curling brooms. Expect blood, guts, and William Forsythe. “I was amazed at some of the things we did get away with,” the horror wizard told Show Patrol. Watch CBS’ preview for the episode, below.
I’m liking the way Michael Madsen‘s CSI version of jazz hands (when his name appears on-screen) mimic Malcolm McDowell‘s finger-wag as he sings about libel. We can only guess McDowell’s next musical number will be “Singin’ in the Rain”….
Will Zombie’s guest direction lure you in to CSI: Miami, or do you watch it anyway?
I don’t know if you caught last night’s 2009 Scream Awards on Spike TV last night. But if you didn’t, then you missed out on one of the strangest parades of Hollywood back-patting ever staged. For those unfamiliar with this new heir to the Oscars and the Golden Globes, the Scream Awards are ostensibly all about celebrating the best in sci-fi, fantasy, and horror on both the big and the small screen. And just to show that the event is even cooler than the MTV Movie Awards, the categories honor such superlatives as Best Horror Movie, Best Villain, and my personal favorite, Most Memorable Mutilation Scene.
Perhaps fittingly, the show kicked off with two little blonde, pigtailed girls standing onstage in little sundresses. A little cute, a little eerie. But eerie won out when one of them pulled out a shiny steel knife and slashed her own throat and arterial spray jetted out of the other one’s neck. Yes, it was going to be that kind of show. The camera cut away to the audience who were all in their teens and twenties dressed in zombie make-up and Pinhead costumes and general goth fetish attire. No seat-fillers or gifting suites needed for this crowd. READ FULL STORY
We reported yesterday on the global attempt to break a record for mass dancing which involved people around the world simultaneously performing the routine from Michael Jackson’s video for “Thriller.” There’s no official word yet as to whether the attempt was successful. But there are a number of videos from different parts of the globe documenting the so-called “Thrill the World” dancers (see below).
Were you one of those who shook a zombified leg yesterday in tribute to the King of Pop last night (or whatever part of the day it happened to be in your part of the world)? Or were you a witness to any of the events? Drop us a line!
Welcome back to the Pop Culture Club, and before we begin, I should alert any newcomers that as this “Club” has all ostensibly seen Zombieland, there will be spoilers galore that will ruin your enjoyment of the movie should you choose to see it later. (That, by the way, was the longest possible way to say “spoiler alert.”)
I should start by saying that I work with many diehard zombiephiles. The kind who know every George A. Romero movie, and, after reading this post’s headline, are now itching to give an irritated lecture about how zombies don’t actually eat brains…as if accepting the walking undead is perfectly logical, but brain-eating isn’t. I went to see this movie with EW’s Dalton Ross, and when we walked out, I said, “I’m just checking: Was 28 Days Later the first movie where zombies sprinted instead of staggered?” And he replied, “That’s actually a controversial question…” and gave me his PhD dissertation on how he strongly believes that staggering is the only true way for a zombie to perambulate. Yes or no, Ross! READ FULL STORY
