‘Justin Bieber 3D’ makes its trailer debut

'Justin Bieber 3D' makes its trailer debut

New York (USA), Oct. 26 (ShowBizCafe.com) – With the shocking success of ‘Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert’ and ‘Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience,’ Paramount Pictures decided to take the story of the young Canadian singer Justin Bieber to the big screen in a biopic directed by Jon Chu entitled ‘Justin Bieber: Never Say Never 3D’. The film, which premieres on February 11, 2011, Valentine’s Day, had its debut last night at his concert in Los Angeles and now you can see it in the video below.

The trailer begins with images of Justin as a child singing and playing musical instruments, all as part of his daily life. The focus then switches to his beginnings as a star and famous people who helped him along the road to fame. Finally we see testimonies of love from his fans and the songs they all obsessively sing as ‘Baby’ and ‘Somebody to Love’. The film ends with Bieber giving words of encouragement to his audience – “there will be times when people tell you you cannot live your dreams,” says Bieber. “This is what I say: Never say never”

The business of ‘Bieber’ continues to boom all around – I mean he has even signed a deal with publisher Harper Collins to create a memoir on his life and his path to the top of the music industry. This guy has become an economic attraction for film executives and publishers who see enormous potential to make money in a variety of properties.

Initially, the documentary filmmaker Davis Guggenheim (It Might Get Loud, An Inconvenient Truth) was going to make the Bieber project, but looks his fans got on him. Guggenheim left the project after receiving a deluge of criticism via the web by his own fans. Scooter Braun, his manager and LA Reid, chairman of Island Def Jam, will produce the film.

It’s official – Hellraiser will have a remake!

It's official - Hellraiser will have a remake!

Recently Bloodydisgusting.com posted news of a new teen version of Hellraiser being developed by The Weinstein Company. The rumor is that the horror film will be made with the highest quality and with a huge budget. Producers are currently negotiating with Christian E. Christiansen (The Roommate) to direct and actress Amber Heard (Zombieland, The Stepfather, The Joneses) to star. The film has in mind to attract teenage kids to the theater and to obtain a PG-13 rating.

The idea of doing a version for teenagers is catching on among many studios, but we don’t think it necessarily is the right move for every ocassion. The original ‘Hellraiser’ is a classic of the horror genre and to dilute it to a teen audience that demands a lot of Hollywoodisms is perhaps a bit inconsiderate to the reputation of the film.

Meanwhile, the Weinsteins, as we speak, are in production of a low-budget version of the film with the intention of preserving the rights to the franchise. The film is called ‘Hellraiser: Revelations’ and will be helmed by Spanish director Victor Garcia who has made ‘Mirrors 2’ and ‘Return to House on Haunted Hill,’ all straight to DVD.

The Christiansen ‘Hellraiser remake’ has been a project that has been making the rounds since 2006, with several directors and actors attached to the production. Originally scheduled for a premiere in 2009, the film has had trouble seeing the day of light until now.

For those who have not seen the original Hellraiser, 1987, the plot revolves around Frank Cotton, a young man, violent and ambitious China acquires a box from an oriental bazaar and endowed with powers. According to ancient legend, is a kind of door to beings from another dimension. Cotton calls to open these creatures from hell fantastic, but these storms to infringe You can kill it. Twenty years later, two new tenants settle in Frank’s old house: his brother and his wife. The emergence of the spirit of Frank is the beginning of a maelstrom of horror in its purest form that your family will go crazy. A drop of blood spilled accidentally by his brother on the floor of loft, is the trigger of the tragedy. Frank, in order to regain his old form, humans need blood to provide it, secretly the wife of his brother.

Jackass 3D is #1 at the box office. Unbelievable but true!

Johnny Knoxville and his “Jackass” gang are even bigger hits in three dimensions.  “Jackass 3D,” their latest big-screen collection of crazy stunts and antics, opened with a whopping $50 million, soaring past the debuts of their first two movies, according to studio estimates Sunday.

Sony’s acclaimed Facebook drama “The Social Network,” which had been No. 1 the previous two weekends, held up well as it slipped to third-place.  Estimated ticket sales, in millions, for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Hollywood.com.

‘The Expendables’ Trailer: Stallone, Arnold, Willis!

'The Expendables' Trailer: Stallone, Arnold, Willis!

To the left of you is the official trailer to The Expendables. This is the movie that Sylvester Stallone has been working on for almost 2 years. I love the concept… unite the most prolific action stars from the 80’s in one movie. For people over 30, that’s like the dream action movie!! Well we have the final trailer and it has some cameos you’re gonna love. Check it out and get pumped!

Here’s the full synopsis just in case you’re wondering: (spoiler alert)

The Expendables is a hard-hitting action/thriller about a group of mercenaries hired to infiltrate a South American country and overthrow its ruthless dictator. Once the mission begins, the men realize things arent quite as they appear, finding themselves caught in a dangerous web of deceit and betrayal. With their mission thwarted and an innocent life in danger, the men struggle with an even tougher challenge one that threatens to destroy this band of brothers.

Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone) is a man with nothing to lose. Fearless and void of emotion, he is the leader, the sage and the strategist of this tight-knit band of men who live on the fringe. His only attachment is to his pickup truck, his seaplane and his team of loyal modern-day warriors. His is a true cynic who describes what he does as removing those hard to get at stains. The team behind him is made up of Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), former SAS and a savant with anything that has a blade; Yin Yang (Jet Li), a master at close-quarter combat; Hale Caesar (Terry Crews), who has known Barney for ten years and is a long-barrel weapons specialist; Toll Road (Randy Couture), a skilled demolitions expert and considered the intellect of the group; and Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren), a combat veteran and an expert in precision sniping who struggles with his own demons.

When the mysterious Church offers Barney a job no one else would take, Barney and his team embark on what appears to be a routine mission: overthrow General Gaza (David Zayas), the murderous dictator of the small island country of Vilena and end the years of death and destruction inflicted on its people. On a reconnaissance mission to Vilena, Barney and Christmas meet their contact Sandra (Giselle Itie), a local freedom-fighter with a dark secret. They also come to learn who their true enemy is: rogue ex-CIA operative James Monroe (Eric Roberts) and his henchman Paine (Steve Austin). When things go terribly wrong, Barney and Christmas are forced to leave Sandra behind, essentially giving her a death sentence. Haunted by this failure, Barney convinces the team to return to Vilena to rescue the hostage and finish the job he started. And to perhaps save a soul: his own.
