So, I saw this preview when I went to see Little Red Riding Hood. Starring kids, produced by Steven Speilberg, and directed by J.J. Abrams. It looks like E.T. got a HUGE attitude since he was last here, and I like it! Can't wait to see it!

He also played one hell of a vampire in Buffy the Vampire Slayer (I remember being excited because 2 of my crushes were in that movie -- Luke Perry AND Rutger); as well as the big, bad, super-mean vampire in the 2004 rendition of 'Salem's Lot (along with another 80's hottie, Rob Lowe).
Now, he's set to play the (in?) famous vampire hunter, Abraham Van Helsing, in the Dracula 3D.
I'm not sure how I feel about this. Look, I love the Dracula tale, but what about something new? Don't we have enough versions for right now? If you're yearning for Dracula, how about The Tale of the Vampire Bride by Rhiannon Frater? Erotic mystery lovers would like to see Vampire Vacation (by CJ Ellisson) on the big screen. And of course, we'd ALL die to see an awesome tale of vampires who kill Nazis and save children during WWII, ahem, right?!
I'm also not sure about the whole 3D thing. It's good for IMAX films (Sea Rex), and possibly children's movies (Yogi Bear). But is it necessary? The Haunting (1963) is quite a chilling, scary tale and that's in B&W with no special effects. I'll admit that CGI for Lord of the Rings was amazing and really brought the story to life, but CGI werewolves -- give me Howling or AWIL effects any day over that. I even prefer the muppet yoda to the CGI-created one.
|Yeah, I know this has nothing to do with vampires, but HAWT!|
In the meantime, us Hauer (and 80's) fans will get to see him in Hobo With a Shotgun -- an homage/parody to/of 80's action flicks (I'm so there. That and Take Me Home Tonight -- homage to 80's teen films -- love it!).
Take care and enjoy your St. Patty's day, gang!
