Article courtesy ShockTillYouDrop: Tuesday at CinemaCon brought the second studio presentation, this one from DreamWorks, and the one movie ShockTillYouDrop.com readers will want to know about is the Craig (Lars and the Real Girl) Gillespie-directed 3D remake of the 1985 cult classic Fright Night. Instead of showing a behind-the-scenes sizzle reel like the movies before them, Gillespie showed an 8-minute chunk of the movie that was filmed and screened entirely in 3D. It opens with Charlie Brewster’s mother Jane, played by Toni Collette, walking into his room while he’s whittling a piece of wood into a stake, and when they go downstairs, Charlie’s girlfriend Amy, played by Imogen Poots, is there wondering why he’s been acting so strangely. Before they get too far into the conversation, Farrell’s Jerry knocks at the door telling Charlie’s mother that Charlie has been harassing him and that he wants to come in to talk about it rather than going to the authorities. Charlie begs his mother not to give him permission to come into the house so she refuses and he walks off but then returns menacingly with a shovel and walks out of view. The full article, including an interview with director Craig Gillespie and Colin Farrell, can be read here.

Promotion for the third season of “United States of Tara”, which premieres tonight on Showtime, has been quiet – probably due to Toni Collette’s pregnancy. However, USA Today has put together a nice piece on the show including an interview with Toni: It’s one thing to nail an American accent as an Australian. It’s another to master seven of them. And it’s yet something else to do so from more than 7,000 miles away, as Sydney native Toni Collette has done in her role as Tara Gregson, the Kansas housewife and mother with dissociative identity disorder at the heart of Showtime’s United States of Tara. The series returns for a third season Monday night (10:30 ET/PT). No matter that Collette lives Down Under. On Tara, she talks as though she lives down South (as beer-swilling, motorcycle-cruising, Y-chromosome-owning Buck), downtown (as Noo Yawk feminist therapist Shoshana Schoenbaum) and down in some Midwestern basement (as gum-snapping, ponytailed, teenage T). And those are only three of Tara’s alter egos. Collette, 38, has never worked with a dialect coach on the show. She credits her uncanny — and Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning — ability to inhabit thoroughly Yankee characters so convincingly to “a misspent youth watching too much American television.” But her talent for drawling twangs and nasally honks aside, “I’m attracted to roles that have a sense of truth to them and a sense of universality to the story,” regardless of geography and demography, Collette says.
