BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
One of the most surprising news items of this week was that Robert Rodriguez had secured financing for Machete Kills, his sequel to the summer 2010 grindhouse feature Machete. According to the report, Rodriguez has teamed up with producer Alexander Rodnyansky and production is currently scheduled to begin in April. But if things aren't moving fast enough for you already, wait until you have a gander at this.
At the end of Machete, the Grindhouse follow-up from director Robert Rodriguez, the filmmaker made a pretty lofty promise. The credits sequence told audiences that they could expect two sequels to the film called Machete Kills and Machete Kills Again. The reason I call it a lofty promise is because Grindhouse was fairly notorious for underperforming at the box office, as people didn't seem super excited to bring back the format.
Monahan has added yet another flick to his growing list of upcoming projects in the form of Sin City 2. The original film was penned by Frank Miller, who also wrote the graphic novel the film was based on, so this will be the first time someone other than Miller will be messing with the material. But, having someone who can write as sharply as Monahan will add an edge to this sequel that the first one lacked.
Robert Rodriguez is a strange director. While the filmmaker is responsible for some of the bloodiest, most violent action films of the last 20 years – including Desperado, Sin City, and Machete - he always dedicates some of his time making films for his children. The most successful of these has been the Spy Kids franchise, the fourth of which is set to debut in theaters tomorrow.
In the beginning, it sounded like a joke. Posters and trailers for Robert Rodriguez’s latest Spy Kids films claimed that the movie would be presented in 4D, utilizing something called “Aroma-Scope.” Then a source who attended a very early screening of Spy Kids: All the Time in the World told me about the scratch-and-sniff cards they had to use during the presentation, and it hit me that Rodriguez really was going to try and break another dimension.
"If it's going to happen, it's going to happen this year," Rodriguez just told the assembled Comic Con crowd of Sin City 2, which he says is still in the script process. He's basing it on three separate stories by Frank Miller, who co-directed the first movie
The fourth film in the franchise introduces two new kids (Mason Cook, Rowan Blanchard), who discover that their step mom (Jessica Alba) is actually a spy. When a villain called the Timekeeper (Jeremy Piven) plans to take over the world, however, they must jump into action and save him. The film also stars Joel McHale, Ricky Gervais, Danny Trejo, Alexa Vega, Antonio Banderas, and Daryl Sabara.
The razor-sharp comedian will lend his voice to a spy dog named Argonaut in the fourth installment of the Spy Kids franchise. Subtitled All the Time In the World, the sequel allegedly steers the series in a totally different direction from the previous three, with Jessica Alba taking control as a former spy who comes out of retirement to fight a super villain who can control time.

Kobe Bryant led the Western Conference All-Stars to a win over the East tonight by scoring 37-points. Ok, a lot of that was because he played more minutes than anyone else and everyone on his team sort of stood back and let him do this thing. All-stars don't play defense. Did anyone see that sweet fade-away field goal Dirk made? I guess not.
