Horror: Paranormal Activity 2 Trailer & update on Joss Whedon’s Cabin in the Woods

We were HUGE supporters of PA1 and the DEMAND IT! Campaign. I LOVE that an uber low budget flick broke all records for money making, LOVE IT.

…“Paranormal Activity,” produced for roughly $15,000, became a runaway hit at the box office following an innovative viral-marketing campaign, grossing $107.9 million domestically and $84.8 million internationally for a worldwide total of $192.7 million….

This trailer looks like they got me, with the dog and the baby no less! And best of all unlike Joss Whedon’s Cabin in the Woods, we may actually get to SEE THE FRAKKIN FILM!!

We have been waiting more than 2 years for Joss’ horror homage! First they pushed back the release date to make it 3D, ugh, waste. Now it is the economy.

MGM apparently cannot get their financing together and any films we are waiting for out of them well, we will have to keep waiting…

First it was James Bond, then The Hobbit, now Joss Whedon is being taken out by MGM’s ongoing financial nuclear winter. Actually this is progress for Joss. Usually he’s the first to take the hit.

Cabin in the Woods, written and produced by Whedon, was set up at MGM and should have been swinging into form right about now. But the studio’s too broke and too broken to get anything done and so THR suggests that Cabin will be bumped off its January 2011 release date and sent to a waiting room somewhere in development hell.

MGM’s remake of Red Dawn may also be another casualty. It’s expected to be pushed back from its November release date….

The episode ‘Branch Wars’ of The Office that Joss directed is among my all time favorites. When ‘Lost’ is done I will be GLEEking out…Hope we get Dr Horrible Part Deux soon..and I want my Cabin in the Woods dammit! That’s the trouble with having a dedicated fan base Joss, we are so demanding :0)

ShocktilYouDrop has the exclusive:

MGM Studios has decided to push Joss Whedon’s anticipated horror-flick The Cabin in the Woods, directed and co-written by Cloverfields’s Drew Goddard, back nearly a year, from its original release date of February 5, 2010 to the new date of January 14, 2011.

MGM reps tell ShockTillYouDrop.com the reason they’re doing this is because the early response to the film has been phenomenal and they’re going to spend six months or so converting the picture to 3-D.

Horror: Joss Whedon’s Cabin in the Woods; another teaser poster…

See SlashFilm.com for more Cabin tidbits..

When Kevin Williamson’s Scream first hit, the ripples pulsed quickly through the slasher genre and rapidly redefined the audience’s expectations of boogeymen in creepy masks and their cinematic slaughter sprees. It was a pioneering work and one of the genuinely visionary films of the 90s. The idea with Cabin in the Woods is, I think, to do something similar. The means, however, are not as simple and definitely not as fresh.

The film will begin with the “white collar” characters we’ve already had casting for – Richard Jenkins and Bradley Whitford as Sitterson and Hadley (though they aren’t necessarily taking the roles in that order – there are still some secrets to unlock). It then cross cuts between these two and a group of five college-agers headed up to a cabin for the typical cabin based shenanigans. A cabin, somewhat unsurprisingly, in a wooded area….

Read the whole thing, but BEWARE OF SPOILERS!!! They only had the first 30 pgs of script so NO ONE really knows what’s what in the film 🙂

Examiner- Jeremy Beyer:

According to Fox’s press site the first episode of season 2 will be entitled “Vows”.  Jamie Bamber (Battlestar Galactica) plays a wealthy financier who decides he wants to get married, and Echo is the lucky girl.

The honeymoon is soon over when Agent Ballard comes in to warn Echo of danger and she doesn’t recognize him. Fighting starts and Ballard tries to make Echo remember to save her life….

More from Jeremy Beyer at the Examiner:

Cabin in the Woods is “The horror movie to end all horror movies” according to writer Joss Whedon. Written by Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard (Cloverfield) who also directs, it is part horror movie, part reality TV, and part comedy.

The basic premise of the movie is the standard “group of teenagers go into the woods to party” formula. Unbeknownst (sp) to them they are being manipulated by a pair of white collar business men who have their own agenda….

Joss Whedon on Dollhouse Season 2: BSG’s Jamie Bamber to guest star; dish on Cabin in the Woods…

From this week’s Entertainment Weekly, highlights via DVRPlayground:

…We’re trying to do something that’s much more cinematic and visceral and really live inside the story,” he says in previewing the new season, which debuts September 24 at 9PM on FOX (Global in Canada). “This season, I’ve really ratcheted up the way I work. We’re shooting in HD, so we’re able to move faster, do more, and make the second season more like the latter half of the first season.”In other-words, “Epitaph One’ is just the beginning. “The insane unaired thirteenth episode will inform what we do the whole season. It really helped give us a direction and understanding of what we want from the actors, and what we think the audience wants to see from this ensemble.”


Epitaph 1, is the 13th episode only available on iTunes or on the DVD set…OR!! It is also available for $1.99 on Amazon Video on Demand gonna go watch it now the damn clips got me hooked….

Direction? Understanding? Yes, yes, that’s great and all but how about some answers dammit!

Not surprisingly, Whedon is somewhat tight-lipped when it comes to how in fact himself and his merry band of writers are going to live up to the ridiculously cool post-apocolyptic future that was painted in “Epitatph One.” But did offer, at a DOLLHOUSE set visit during the recent Television Critics Association Press Tour that the series will pick up exactly three months after the events of last May’s season finale, fans can expect more three-dimensional dolls and  ” best of all” a special guest appearance by BATTLESTAR GALACTICA’s Jamie Bamber.

Mrs MiM here, did someone say Jamie Bamber?

Who won’t be the only familiar face this season. “Last year I had to be careful that it didn’t seem the show was a party for my friends,” explained Whedon, who ultimately changed his tune after a weekend spent at San Diego’s Comic Con, realizing that, yeah, it sort of is a party for his friends (see: Felicia Day, who will be back in the second season premiere) “Ultimately it also saves time if you have someone you know who can get the job done.”

So does that mean CASTLE star Nathan Fillion should be waiting by his phone? “I’m trying to sabotage the show, it’s not working, but I’m trying.”…

Mrs MiM again. Nathan? Mal? Did someone say something about Captain Mal?
