Mind the Hoe Moe

Fox has just sent a new trailer for the film. Apart from a very bad dummy drop at the beginning, then to the end it's a selection of the three hitting each other over the head with various household instruments, and a crustacean

Left on a doorstep of an orphanage run by nuns, new-borns Larry, Curly and Moe waste no time finger-poking, nyuk-nyuking and woo-woo-wooing their way into trouble. Years later, and with the orphanage forced to close its doors, the three grown Stooges embark on a mission to save their former home.

It's raining Magic Mike

From incomparable director Steven Soderbergh (Ocean’s 11,12,13, Traffic), comes this generation’s Saturday Night Fever, starring Channing Tatum (Dear John, GI Joe, Step Up), Alex Pettyfer (I Am Number Four) and Matthew McConaughey (Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, Fool’s Gold).

To a rebellious 19-year-old kid (Pettyfer) looking for independence from his family, Magic Mike (Tatum) seems like the perfect role model: he’s got a nice car, a nice apartment, and a seemingly endless supply of women. What’s his secret? He’s a male stripper, and when the kid dives headlong into Magic Mike’s world, his mad dancing skills and hunger for excitement make for an unforgettable summer...

Sexy, funny and shocking, this film is a hedonistic thrill ride with a powerful undertow. A razor sharp cast - led by top liner Channing Tatum in a career-defining turn as the titular Magic Mike devours the up-to-the moment freight train of a script, and the result will be relentlessly entertaining and sure to be one of the most talked about films of the year... and let’s not forget the price-of-admission dancing sequences...

After watching the trailer and reading the synopsis i can't stop thinking that this sounds like a re-make of the 90s ecological movie, Ferngully.

The creators of ICE AGE and RIO will reveal a hidden world unlike any other in an all new 3D CG action-adventure comedy. EPIC tells the story of a battle raging all around us between the forces of good, who protect nature, and the forces of evil, who wish to see it destroyed. When a teen age girl finds herself magically transported into this secret universe, she must band together with a rag-tag team of fun and unique characters to save their world... and ours.
EPIC is released in cinemas May 2013 from Twentieth Century Fox

Are you dreaming Quaid?

It's got the same name as the Arnie film. However, it seems to diverge quite a lot as this one seems just to stick to earth. that in mind we do, seem, to see the iconic tripple-brested whore

Welcome to Rekall, the company that can turn your dreams into real memories.  For a factory worker named Douglas Quaid (Colin Farrell), even though he's got a beautiful wife (Kate Beckinsale) who he loves, the mind-trip sounds like the perfect vacation from his frustrating life - real memories of life as a super-spy might be just what he needs. But when the procedure goes horribly wrong, Quaid becomes a hunted man. Finding himself on the run from the police – controlled by Chancellor Cohaagen (Bryan Cranston), the leader of the free world – Quaid teams up with a rebel fighter (Jessica Biel) to find the head of the underground resistance (Bill Nighy) and stop Cohaagen. The line between fantasy and reality gets blurred and the fate of his world hangs in the balance as Quaid discovers his true identity, his true love, and his true fate.

The Campaign hots up some more

Two new posters have just hit for the film.  This time, unlike the last set, doesn't include any baby kissing.

Their man: naive Marty Huggins (Zach Galifianakis), director of the local Tourism Center. At first, Marty appears to be the unlikeliest possible choice but, with the help of his new benefactors' support, a cutthroat campaign manager and his family's political connections, he soon becomes a contender who gives the charismatic Cam plenty to worry about.

A return to the hammer days when horror wasn’t afraid to hold your gaze and send a shiver of fear down your spine
Ben Wheatley, director of KILL LIST

Excellent…has a strong air of dread and menace
Kim Newman, Screen International

Pinter-esque, character-driven, genre-crunching horror
Damon Wise, Empire Online
Two hit men are sent to murder an old associate of their underworld boss. But things are not all what they seem in their quarry’s house and the discovery of a make-shift black magic altar - and its shocking sacrifice - sends the uncomprehending duo into the shadowy darkness of their own tortured souls and terrifying confrontations with their worst primal fears.
