Ethan Maniquis


Who among us doesn’t quake in fear at the thought of nature’s most vicious animal – the squirrel? Like a rat glued to a furry caterpillar, its beady eyes glow with malicious intent, its buck teeth eager to gnaw through bone. Okay, squirrels might not be that scary. But Timur Bekmambetov clearly thinks they can be. The Russian-born director (whose English-language outings include Wanted and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) and his production company, Bazelevs, have put out a sales trailer for their upcoming tongue-in-cheek horror flick, Squirrels. Check it out after the break.


Going the Distance

This week, Fat Guy Kevin Carr jumps feet first into the world of exploitation pictures. He rips off his shirt to show his prison tats when he sees Machete and then becomes a weapons expert to go head-to-head with George Clooney in The American. Finally, he cringes and rolls his eyes at yet another crappy real-life couple love story with Going the Distance. It’s sad when the highlight of his moviegoing weekend is a Lindsay Lohan nip slip.



20th Century Fox has released a brand new trailer for Machete, the Danny Trejo led grindhouse style action movie from Robert Rodriguez and co-director Ethan Maniquis. And like the first trailer, there is certainly a lot of promises made. It promises to deliver a movie that’s full of sex, inventive violence and all of the Grindhouse spirit that was infused into the faux trailer upon which it is based. But even though I’m excited — very excited — about the very existence of this movie, I can’t help but feel as if the best shot of this entire trailer is the one taken directly from that same faux trailer. Danny Trejo flying through the air on the motorcycle of doom. And if that’s the best shot they can muster for the trailer, what does that say about the rest of the movie? Alright yeah, it’s still probably going to be a badass ride. Watch the trailer for yourself after the jump…



Nobody better warn him. I really want to see how this plays out. Someone make some popcorn or something.
