Box Office Guru Preview: 30 Days of Night Gets Halloween Started Early
Competition, or a lack of it, will be the deciding factor at the North American box office this weekend for the half-dozen new releases that studios are packing into already overcrowded multiplexes. With far too many films aiming for the same finite audience segment, some are sure to eat into the potential of others.

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. But I dig the first flick enough to look forward to the third flick, despite the (wide) opinion that the second flick sucked eggs. Horror geeks are funny that way.

Considering the flick's nearly finished production, I half-expected "Resident Evil: Extinction" to hit theaters sometime in early 2007, but IGNFF informs us that, nope, the third entry in the hotties vs. zombies series won't hit screens until next September.

For the combo, we'll probably have to wait until "Resident Evil: Extinction" hits theaters next year.
