Universal to close Back To The Future: The Ride

Universal to close Back To The Future: The Ride in Orlando: It’s not clear whether it’s just the one in Florida or whether the Hollywood ride also has a similar fate. As much as the execution sucked it was still quite good fun, particularly as a fan of the movies. It’s rumoured that it will be replaced by a Simpsons or Transformers attraction. More details on the ride at Wikipedia.

Live Free and Die Hard

I think I’m going to forget all I’ve read about Die Hard 4′s title and who it’s being directed by and move swiftly on — possibly forgetting that the whole thing ever happened. Perhaps I should just be grateful that it’s no longer called Die Hard 4.0… on account of the plot revolving around an internet-based terrorist organisation… *lone cough in silence*

Grind House teaser poster

Here’s something that caught my eye… Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez (Sin City) are collaborating to produce an exploitation horror/slasher double bill called “Grind House” in the vein of those 70s horror flicks with fantastic posters (but were actually total crap). Both filmed in Texas, Death Proof, Tarantino’s movie, stars Kurt Russell as a mad man hell-bent on killing hot chicks with his big car (“sort of a slasher film, but instead of a knife, it’s a car”), and Planet Terror, Rodriguez’ half, is a zombie movie starring Rose McGowan with a machine gun for a leg.

It all sounds too good to be true… but there’s more! They’re also shooting fake trailers for spaghetti western, blaxploitation, sexploitation and kung fu movies which will show between the two films. Want more? One of the trailers will be directed by Edgar Wright (Spaced, Shaun of the Dead) and another by Eli Roth (Cabin Fever, Hostel). If all that wasn’t enough, check out these gorgeous teaser posters.
