The Razzies

Tomorrow is the big day when the Academy is set to announce this year’s Oscar nominees, and traditionally that meant that today was supposed to be the day that The Golden Raspberry Award Foundation announced the contenders for The Razzies, the annual set of awards that are unique in that they recognize the worst in the world of moviemaking instead of the best. This year things are being done a little differently over at Razzie headquarters, however.



The bad news for fans of horror just keeps piling up. Currently we’re dealing with an October that is painfully devoid of new horror releases in the theaters, and now a couple of movies that were supposed to be coming our way in the upcoming months are getting pushed back. Piranha 3DD was supposed to hit theaters on November 23rd and The Amityville Horror: The Lost Tapes was originally set to be released on January 27th, but they’re now both relegated to the vague release dates of  “sometime in 2012.” Both films are Dimension releases, so perhaps the reason for the pushback is some juggling on the corporate level, but I think we’ve all been following movies long enough to suss out what this probably means; it probably means they suck. The original Piranha 3D was great fun, but instead of bringing back the creative team from that film, Dimension instead got the hacks that collaborated on the terrible (in my opinion, argue if you disagree, I know there are some of you out there) Feast to handle this sequel. And the new Amityville movie, it’s supposed to be one of those found footage films. Anybody remember how boring Apollo 18 was? Yeah, I’m trying to forget too. I’d have to say that all signs are pointing to both of these movies turning out pretty bad. I mean, Amityville was already set to be put out in the film release wasteland of January, and now they’re not even comfortable putting […]



Despite having a director, a script, and a huge chunk of its cast ready to go, Warner Bros’ upcoming re-re-boot of the Superman franchise is going to have to wait a while before it comes to theaters. Originally the film was scheduled to have a December 2012 release, but Warners has officially announced, while all eyes are on the San Diego Comic Con and comic properties in general, that they are pushing the film back six months to June 14, 2013. No reasons for the move are explicitly given, but there are a few that can be inferred. This is a project that has been rushed and in a bit of turmoil ever since its inception, largely due to copyright issues that Warners is having with the families of Superman’s creators. In order to hold on to the rights for this film, the studio has to have it in production by the end of 2012. That will still happen under the new plan, the film just won’t be released until 2013.
