Usually, the Moviefile brings you news about casting, festivals, studio feuds, and other movie-related happenings. Today, I'd like to warn you about a disastrous parasitic infection. No, it's not salmonella in your tomatoes, or E. coli in your salad greens, but exposure to this infectious agent can be just as sickening. I am referring, of course, to Disaster Movie. ComingSoon has the first trailer of the new movie from the gang who brought you the Scary Movie franchise, as well as Epic Movie, Date Movie, and Meet the Spartans. Consider the trailer a sort of vaccine. Although not entirely effective, viewing it could prevent many, many people from falling victim to a more prolonged illness. If, however, you still find yourself in the theater watching this movie, below are a few symptoms you should look out for.
One of few criticisms people have about the war in Vietnam is that the war was unwinnable, a quagmire from which there was no escape. Well, Ben Stiller has proven that the war was indeed winnable... or, at least, that a movie about people making a movie about Vietnam can be a winner at the box office. For the third weekend in a row, Tropic Thunder has taken the #1 spot, pulling in another $14.3 million over the long holiday weekend for a total gross (so far) of $86.6 million. While the movie's controversy seemed to have helped it at first, the repeat business can only be from positive word-of-mouth -- or possibly the fact that the rest of the movies coming out this weekend and last looked so devastatingly boring.
