Now, I love Kate Beckinsale. And I love Hugh Jackman. But Van Helsing is a guilty pleasure movie. Not a buy a special collector’s edition movie. However, Bloody Disgusting has the details on the new release.
And while it does include a special feature titled “The Women of Van Helsing : Anna and Dracula’s Brides,” which is sure to include interviews with Ms. Beckinsale, I just don’t see why anyone needs more than the basic movie package for this one. Anyone disagree?
Robert DeNiro is one lucky actor. Not only has he had one of the most successful Hollywood careers, but now he gets to star in Everybody’s Fine with two of my favorite actresses – Kate Beckinsale and Drew Barrymore.
Variety.com has more details about the movie – including the director, writer, etc. – in which DeNiro plays a widower trying to reconnect with his adult children.
Beckinsale’s Snow Angels costar Sam Rockwell also stars. Filming starts later this month, with no release date set yet.
Ms. Beckinsale has been spending a lot of time in the snow lately, with her two upcoming movies featuring some very snowy posters. Kate’s Whiteout poster shows her all bundled up in the Alaskan wilderness. The new poster for Snow Angels, costarring Sam Rockwell, shows Kate & friend in a very snowy scene as well.
Snow Angels comes out in Limited Release on March 7th, 2008. (Whiteout has a vague 2008 release date.)
As the new year begins, we tend to look back over the past year. This past year at MovieSnobs, we started a new weekly post called Movie Tunes, which features reviews of movie soundtracks. We covered some great ones last year, so we thought we’d recap them before moving on with 2008.
The first Movie Tunes was one of my favorite soundtracks ever, one of my favorite CDs ever, in fact – Underworld, the Kate Beckinsale vampire movie with the hard rock soundtrack.
For Halloween, we had a review of the deluxe edition of the soundtrack for The Nightmare Before Christmas, which includes both the original soundtrack and new cover versions of the classic songs by Marilyn Manson, Fall Out Boy, and others.
Starting with my review of the Resident Evil: Apocalypse soundtrack, Mike implemented a nifty “Listen” button like the one below.
