Sanctum Plays Your Deepest Fears

There's a movie called Sanctum executive-produced by James Cameron, that promises to play your deepest fears. It's about getting trapped in the belly of the earth surrounded by suffocating cold water. Sanctum is a movie about explorers - cave divers to be exact - who go on an expedition into the deepest and most inaccessible cave system in the world (can't have it any less). The opening if this fictional cave is huge and goes straight down. Base divers jump off the edge and into the darkness below just for kicks. But there's more to this cave that goes deeper into the earth, where a labyrinth of tunnels and caverns awe the imagination and earn the respect of the most experienced explorers!

The story of Sanctum is pretty simple, and the usual group of people who end up forced to make life-saving decisions and sacrifices is used. Of course, some of the members of this group will die with the last few getting into a conflict that brings out the worst (or the best) in them. Usually in such movies, at least one of the characters will opt for self-preservation and abandon the group. But since this post is not about story spoilers, you better just watch the movie.

As a movie about extreme adventure, Sanctum is a must-see movie because it will take you to a place few people get to experience. It can be expected to be visually grand and breathtaking. It's being filmed in 3D is perhaps one good reason in itself to see this film. There's actually a real cave similar to the one shown in Sanctum. It's called the Cave of Swallows (left) and has the world's deepest cave shaft. It's so deep the whole of the Empire State Building can be slid inside easily. It's found in the middle of a rain forest in San Luis Potosi, Mexico. You'd think that the producers of Sanctum would shoot inside this cave, but they wanted it to be easy, so they made cave sets at Warner Roadshow Studios with one making use of Warner's $2.1 water tank.

Sanctum, set in Papua New Guinea, is actually based on a true-to-life story that involved the film's producer and writer Andrew Wight, who was trapped with fourteen other people after the exit to a submerged cave system in the Nullarboor Plain of Australia, collapsed during a storm. A documentary of that event was made and now that drama has become the basis for this feature film, Sanctum. Wight has worked with friend Cameron before in Ghosts of the Abyss.

Splice Takes After Species Movie

There's this movie called Splice which stars Adrien Brody. The movie explores the possibilities in genetics technology, particularly how genes from one life-form can be transferred or combined with genes from another to create hybrid plants and animals that have characteristics unknown before on Earth. Such ideas of combining animal and plants together in a human body has been explored before in horror/science-fiction films of the past. In ancient history, there's the Chimera which is a creature with the features of different animals combined. In genetics, the term chimera refers to the manifestation of two or more different populations of genetically distinct cells that come from different zygotes.

Characters in movies have been changed into plants, snakes, etc. before. but it's only now that the once-fictional idea is a possibility. Yes, genetics science has inserted genes into plants and animals to produce something new like glowing tobacco plants and fast-growing fish. The technology can be helpful especially in food production, but it's something that you as a person won't like to experience. It's really horrible to think that you can get animal or plant characteristics. But what if you were born as a hybrid with genes form different lifeforms? This is what Splice is all about.

The idea in Splice isn't really new with the story premise already used in movies like Species, but it can still be disturbingly entertaining. It's not so much about the horror but more to do with what an innocent being, Dren (played by Delphine Chaneac), must face in world that does not accept it and where it must exercise it's natural tendencies and urges borne of it's genetic makeup. Oh, the problems Adrien Brody's character faces in the movie!

The Expendables Poster Looks Like a Guns N' Roses Album

The Expendables ensemble action movie from Sylvester Stallone features a number of old actions stars past and present. Based on the response from screenings, it's expected to be a big hit. After problems with casting, story rewrites, and a neck injury sustained from a mock fight, Stallone is ready to rake in the dollars this year. Promotion for The Expendables has been steady but rising.

This is the poster of The Expendables. It's full of guns and knives and the skull in the middle is kind of reminiscent of art from a Guns N' Roses album. But there's no rose in the expendables, at least not the flower that you would expect, the closest thing to a rose there is actress Giselle ItiƩ of Mexico.

Jessica Alba Heats Up Machete Poster

Here's another one from Robert Rodriguez! It's a spin-off from a bogus Grindhouse trailer and inspired by powerful characters in his previous movies like Desperado. It stars Danny Trejo as the lead character who we've seen before in other character incarnations with knives under his coat. In this movie, he carries machetes - lots of them! They're big, too! We can only imagine what he's going to use them for.

Machete also stars Jessica Alba who plays Sartana. She gives the estrogen in this movie opposite the testosterone of craggy-faced Trejo. But with that gin in her hand, she might as well give the adrenaline. This movie is all Rodriguez as we remember how his early movies were. Like Desperado, this one makes the best of Latin American culture, imagery, and sensuality, which can only be described as hot as salsa. It should be deliciously addictive.

The Wolfman Movie (2010) Bites into Your Fears

There's a new Wolfman in town and his name is Benicio del Toro (left). This versatile actor slips into the shoes of the original 1940s Wolf Man, Lon Chaney Jr, giving the character a more rugged and deeply disturbing look. Since the 1981 movie An American Werewolf in London, there has never been a wolfman movie that actually bites into the consciousness of the viewers - well, there's the Gingersnaps series, but then when audiences have seen too many werewolves, they all start to look the same and the horrid idea of changing into an animal loses its... well... horror.

Now, director Joe Johnston and Benicio del Toro team up to make a remake of the original "The Wolfman" werewolf movie to do a fresh take and to deeply bite into your primordial fear of losing your humanity to something more savage. This version also stars Sir Anthony Hopkins as Sir John Talbot, who horror fans know as Van Helsing in Dracula. He's a logical choice for The Wolfman as his craggly looks and cracked voice lend life to a lost era when superstition was the norm.

Audiences will be treated to more bone-wrenching special effects that will leave some cringing as del Toro's character, Lawrence Talbot, changes into a wolf. Special effects wizards never seem to lose ideas to show how a man changes into a wolf. In this new wolfman movie, you will see del Toro's face extend into one of a canine's and hands that twist and contort into manners that will rival Mister Spock's "live long and prosper" hand greeting. The Wolfman 2010 also stars Emily Blunt as Gwen Conliffe (left).

Take a peek at The Wolfman, here.

Spider-Man 4 Revamp: No More Toby Maguire and Sam Rami

Spider-Man 4 may not turn out the way we expect it, starring our old favorite Peter Parker, Tobey Maguire. After issues with the script and story were thought to have been resolved, Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios announced that it will be doing a revamp of Spider-Man, opting to make a prequel (kind of) film instead that focuses on Spider-Man in high school. Think Smallville and you have an idea on what to expect - Parker would be going about his superhero deeds without the costume.

The director of the trilogy, Sam Raimi (above) won't be on board for this one as well as Tobey Maguire (left), who earlier announced that he was happy with the way things were going with the preproduction talks. But that was getting ahead of the executives. The real reason for the new Spider-Man isn't clear but the other Marvel movie, Thor, came up and it may be because this Marvel hero movie's release date coincides with what was planned with Spider-Man 4, although that does not seem to be a good enough reason for a revamp.

Thor also had production problems with actor Stuart Townsend calling it quits after creative differences arose. Joshua Dallas replaced him as Thor's ally. News about the Spider-Man reboot will come out soon, according to producers. The first thing fans would like to know is who will be cast as the young Spider-Man.

Tobey Maguire may not be Spider-Man anymore in the fourth Spider-Man movie, but you know that he will still be Spider-Man for a lot of fans for many years to come!
