Movie news: Romero, The Hobbit, Voltron

For those who haven't heart, horror is not doing so well these days. But that picture above, from George A. Romero's upcoming Diary of the Dead, leads us to believe that there's still some life in the old dog yet. Sure, it's just a pic of a zombie state trooper walking away from a burning car. But don't you want to know more?

Meanwhile, after a bitter dispute over ... something, it seems like Peter Jackson is back on board with New Line Cinema the Lord of the Rings prequel, The Hobbit. Seems like the smartest move for all involved, but we're not exactly looking forward to this. A family-oriented prequel to a beloved trilogy? Where have I seen that before? Although if Ian Holm, Andy Serkis, and Ian McKellan reprise their LOTR roles, it may not be a total washout.

Finally, we knew the whole retro-80s marketing thing was in full effect in the wake of Transformers with new He-Man and GI Joe movies, but now Voltron is getting the treatment as well with a script from a guy who, among other things is working on updating Street Fighter (how can it top the original!?) for the new decade. Surely this can't be far from a reality, can it?
