Under his new deal with Rogue Pictures, Wes Craven is going to continue producing remakes of his own movies like "The Hills Have Eyes" and "Last House on the Left." Though IMDB is listing a "Shocker" remake, Craven thinks another early '90s horror remake will come first.

"V" is for Victory (at the weekend box office)
Not even remotely surprising is the fact that the new Natalie Portman action epic "V for Vendetta" was #1 at the weekend box office, as it's a title that's been talked up and touted for about half a year now. The $50+ million project opened a few months later than expected, but it still did so in fairly impressive fashion. The Wachowski/WB production hauled in an estimated $26.1 million from 3,300 theaters, giving "Vendetta" the #1 spot by more than 10 million bucks.

"Failure" Fails To Fail At The Weekend Box Office
By now it's downright ridiculous, but once again the weekend's box office winners are also the week's critical duds, with the aptly named "Failure To Launch" balancing a Tomatometer of 30 percent with an opening B.O. of $24.6 mil.

Run for the "Hills" Game! Creeepy....
Normally an online game/promotional piece wouldn't be all that newsworthy, even if it is one hosted by IGN Filmforce. But since I keep hearing how good "The Hills Have Eyes" remake is, and because I've been playing it for about a half hour, I thought it'd be cool to share with you the Run for the Hills game over at IGN. It's basically "Doom" with mutants and a shotgun, but it's also pretty fun and actually kinda spooooky.

The power of Tyler Perry continued over Oscar weekend, with his "Madea's Family Reunion" snagging the #1 spot for a second consecutive weekend. Despite a Tomatometer stuck on 30%, the flick just keeps packing 'em in: Madea made another $13 million last weekend, giving her a total purse of $48.1 million.

Trailer Bulletin: The Hills Have Eyes & When a Stranger Calls
There's been a bona-fide explosion of new movie trailers over the past week or two ... but this is the only one I've watched more than once, because I'm a desperately sick horror junkie. Hardcore gorehounds are obviously familiar with Wes Craven's classic "The Hills Have Eyes," and now comes the very first trailer for the remake by "High Tension" director Alexandre Aja. And it's pretty darn cool.
