In this new epic action-adventure Snow White is the only person in the land fairer than the Evil Queen Ravenna (Theron) who's out to destroy her. But what the wicked ruler never imagined is that the young woman threatening her reign has been training in the art of war with a huntsman (Hemsworth) who was dispatched to kill her, and the seven dwarfs. This is being directed by Rupert Sanders, an acclaimed commercials director making his feature debut. Arrives in theaters this Summer, June 1, 2012.

There is so much more to this movie than the trailer leads you to believe. And it's difficult to write about The Cabin in the Woods without potentially revealing spoilers, so I won't say much. The plot line goes something like this: Five friends go to a remote cabin in the woods and bad things happen. You may think you've walked into the wrong movie based on the first five minutes, in which two technicians have a discussion at the water cooler about everything but the film's main plot. Not to worry though, everything makes sense in the end... or does it?
Filmed in 2009, director Drew Goddard manages the impossible. He ends up turning the entire horror genre up side down, only to toss it around a few times. Literally. And as you watch, you will notice recognizable horror movie images and familiar plot lines all over the place, which was intentional and brilliant. The first half of the movie plays to the formula of your basic classic horror movie, "if you hear strange noises outside... have sex," but the end is where the real magic ensues. Chaos breaks free and just when you think you have this movie figured out it takes you to a whole new level of uncharted territory.
Nothing can prepare you for where The Cabin in the Woods goes in its last 30 minutes. It's a trip. I will say, though, the movie's not nearly as scary as the trailer leads you to believe and it doesn't quite explain everything, but I still thoroughly enjoy it. It's one of the best horror movies I've seen in a long time. What makes this movie so great is that it is seriously like no other horror movie out there. It's weird, gory, creepy, crazy, shocking, surprisingly funny and above all... original.

It's about time someone poked fun. For all those who rolled their eyes (me included) at the very idea that James Cameron would re-release his epic movie Titanic in 3D… you were right to do so. For those who are planning on traveling back into the depths of the Atlantic ocean of the third dimension, you may want to wait. Why? Well, directors J.J. Abrams, George Lucas and Michael Bay have joined forces with James Cameron to deliver what will be the most epic re-telling of this famous ocean liner tragedy in: Titanic Super 3D. I'm still laughing. Enjoy!
For those interested, Paramount has re-released Titanic (originally opened in December 1997) in theaters on April 6th, 2012, four days before the 100th Anniversary of the real ship's departure on April 10th, 1912. They've released it in 3D nationwide, IMAX, and also in 2D, featuring a fully digitally re-mastered 4K print that Cameron has said will look better than it ever has before. They spent a painstaking 60 weeks and $18 million at two conversion shops to make Titanic in 3D look like one of the best conversions you'll ever see. Titanic won a total of 11 Oscars, including Best Picture. See Titanic again right now!
