CHICAGO – Before 1998’s “The Big Lebowski” there was 1996’s “Kingpin”, the Farrelly brothers bowling comedy that didn’t have the narrative intricacies of the Coen brothers’ classic, but had plenty of jokes about middle-aged men playing the sport. Today finds the release of “Kingpin” to Blu-ray for the first time, coming with only one new special feature.
One Missed Call
CHICAGO – Hello, J-Horror. Please hang up and dial again. In fact, the message “please hang up and dial again” should have given to Eric Valette before accepting Takashi Miike’s remake “One Missed Call” as his American directorial debut.
Hollywood’s successful calling to remake mediocre J-Horror films has finally ended with this tragic interpretation of “Chakushin Ari” in which an evil spirit haunts the cellular phone network for a group of bad-acting college friends.
Warner Bros. on Monday released new production stills for the upcoming supernatural thriller “One Missed Call,” which stars Shannyn Sossamon and Ed Burns. The film is slated to open on Jan. 4, 2008. All of the following production stills are credited to Guy D’Alema.
