Hasbro Issues Message to G.I. Joe Fans
There have been a lot of rumors regarding the Paramount/Hasbro-produced live-action G.I Joe movie, and we've had fun discussing many of them -- but Hasbro, apparently, hasn't been enjoying the gossip as much as the rest of us.

Timothy Olyphant Addresses Hitman Rumors

Nailed, and Beast of Bataan, both sound very promising.

Jeepers Creepers has always been a sort of guilty pleasure with me. The opening hour of the first movie is nothing short of brilliant, but the rest of the other two are, admittedly, mediocre. But I like the premise and the movies have yet to truly disappoint me, so I'm glad for a third. The ending of the second was kind of open-ended anyhow.

Nailed, Beast of Bataan, and Tell-Tale sound cool. And...Michelle Pfeiffer and Ashton Kutcher? There's an interesting match-up.
