Paul W.S. Anderson Having a Long Good Friday
It isn't widely known to American audiences, but John Mackenzie's 1979 gangster drama The Long Good Friday is recognized as a classic of British film -- which is precisely why it may perturb its fans to learn a remake is in the works.

Nasty New Red-Band Trailer for Resident Evil 3
I've said it before and I'll say it again right now: I dig Resident Evil. No not the second one, you lunatic. My passion for cheeseball cinema only goes so far.
