kickass-bigdaddyKick-Ass the Matthew Vaughn (Stardust) directed adaptation of Mark Millar’s (Wanted) graphic novel has had another poster appear online along with a hilarious clip. The first trailer had me sold on seeing this and this new poster and clip just adds to my anticipation. NOTE: this is a red band clip, so it’s R rated. Kick-Ass whoops ass into theaters on April 16, 2010 Source (UGO)

A pretty big rumor about casting for The Hobbit appeared over on Latino Review. Is Tobey Maguire in line to play Bilbo Baggins?

Speaking of…  It was announced that the Lord of the Rings trilogy will finally be coming to Blu Ray. It’s out on April 6, 2010. It’s worth noting that the nine(!?!) disc box set will only contain the theatrical cuts of the films.

Mel Gibson is going back in time, yet again, this time with Vikings. Leonardo Dicaprio is set to star in the untitled film. (Variety)

Yet more leaky promo material today by way of the Riddley Scott (Alien) directed Robin Hood starring Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett.

Enjoy another minute thirty of period imagery and heavy metal music. Robin Hood is out May 14th, 2010

About Lost in Reviews

Named after the 2003 film Lost in Translation, Lost in Reviews set out to embody the philosophy of this film in a website. Discouraged with the lack of passion in modern day criticism, founders Angela Davis and Ryan Davis created the entertainment review site in 2009. The idea being that, this would be the go-to place for people to find that something that was missing in their life through film or music.

Lost in Reviews is based in Kansas City, Dallas and Chicago. The site covers all aspects of entertainment, but tries to focus more on the easily over-looked. Lost in Reviews is the home to the starving filmmaker and indie bands everywhere. If you’re looking for a voice or trying to share in a vision, then Lost in Reviews just may be the place to help you get there. As the tag line for Lost in Translation says: “Everyone wants to be found.” So find yourself Lost in Reviews.
