The final exit makes it's preview debut
Part 2 will open July 15, 2011. Yes, they took a tip from "Lost" and torture fans so.
Both film, directed by David Yates, will be in the ubiquitous 3D and IMAX 3D.
Of course it stars, in their final roles, Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson, and also Ralph Fiennes, Bill Nighy, John Hurt, Rhys Ifans, Helena Bonham Carter, Robbie Coltrane, Imelda Staunton, Jason Isaacs, Miranda Richardson, Warwick Davis, Alan Rickman, Maggie Smith, Brendan Gleeson, Ciaran Hinds, Timothy Spall, David Thewlis, Julie Walters, Tom Felton, Bonnie Wright, Jamie Campbell Bower, Richard Griffiths, Matthew Lewis, Evanna Lynch, Fiona Shaw, Helen McCrory, David O'Hara and Natalia Tena.
Damn! Everyone is in this movie. This is like the British Irwin Allen "Harry Potter."

But ladies will love it!
But is that heart in the right place?
I say, heck no. Action movies, perhaps trying to appeal to a female demographic are getting all sloppy on us. And I agree that this trend is rather unfortunate. If the movie was mature and interesting, a love story a la "The Getaway" or "Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia" (can you even imagine the latter movie being made today?), yes, throw in some interesting women. But the obligatory love interest? No thanks.
So sayeth Vadim Rizov at IFC:
"Nowadays, studios, in the absence of demanding comedies with heart, seem to have injected this regrettable sogginess into action films, drawing attention away from more vital matters like which expendable bad guy is about to get his ass kicked. I'm thinking, most recently, of the regrettable Jessica Biel in 'The A-Team,' whose appearance drew unprecedented howls of derision each and every time she appeared on-screen at my screening. Rarely have I seen a mostly easily pleased crowd so clearly Not Having It.
A potentially perfect duo
"Meryl Streep and Jeff Bridges are in negotiations to join new film Great Hope Springs. The duo will reportedly play a married couple who have been together for 30 years, and embark on an intense counseling weekend away in order to decide on the fate of their marriage.
"Philip Seymour Hoffman has also shown an interest in the project, but scheduling conflicts could stop him appearing. Vanessa Taylor is writing the script, having previously worked on TV with series' like Everwood and Alias. There is no director currently attached."

Remaking 'Escape from New York'
But this one, this one. Come on fellas. Give us a break. And I like Timothy Olyphant. But as Snake Plissken? Well...
And yet, according to some reports, the script is good, it's more of a prequel, and isn't campy.
I haven't said "Uncle" yet to this, but here's the news from Total Film:
"The part was originally played by Kurt Russell in John Carpenter’s 1981 film, which had the one-eyed soldier attempting to escape a futuristic prison based in an abandoned New York City.
With Eisner and Olyphant having worked together on this year’s surprisingly decent The Crazies, it seems both are keen to re-pair for future projects.
"And Escape could be just that project. Eisner spoke to Movieweb recently, stating:
“'I love working with Timothy Olyphant, and I will be working with him again. He is an amazing actor. A talented guy. And he’s incredibly funny. He needs to do a great comedy, because he is a funny guy. But I will work with him again. I can promise you that.'”
He's related to a certain famous impaler...
E delved into into 24-year-old Pattinson's bloodline via Ancestry.com and found that the "Twilight" actor is actually related to the "real-life Dracula" or, Vlad the Impaler. Right on Robert! I knew there was a reason I liked him as much as I do. And I do, I want even greater roles in his future.
"Without any myth or magic, we find royalty and vampires lurking in Pattinson's life—making his story just as supernatural as the one he's playing on screen," said genealogist Anastasia Tyler.
