Netflix Announces Blu-ray Renting Costs

From geekology, Yesterday Netflix announced its new cost structure for adding Blu-ray access to you account, just in case you were wondering. Basically, it costs $1 more than the number of discs you can have out at one time (if you're on the 3-at-a-time plan, adding Blu-ray costs $4 a month, for the 4-at-a-time, $5 a month, etc.). So there you have it. Of course, if you're looking to save money instead of spending it, you should do what I do and only rent from The Pirate Bay. And by rent I mean download. And by download I mean I heard they have porn. Which, *poker face* I don't know anything about.

Pac-Man Zero Gravity: Not Really That Fun

From geekology, Haha, but that didn't stop me from playing all the way to level 3! Well, if there is a level 3. They kind of all looked the same. Messy.

Once the gameplay kicks in, gravity switches off, and Inky, Blinky, Pinky, Clyde, the power pills and dots all get to floating around the darkness of space.

You won't be able to get through this game by memorizing patterns while playing this version. Your only hope is to gobble up a power pill, which turns on gravity for a few seconds, sucking every object in the direction of the red gravity arrow - but the ghosts never turn blue for you to chomp on.

3D glasses too expensive for studios

From filmstalker, It seems that while some of the studios are happy to help pay the huge costs for installing digital projection systems across the U.S. they aren't so happy to help with the cost of 3D glasses for each of the films, and that cost is going to be handed back to the consumer. That's you.

Fox is the first studio that has publicly announced that it won't be paying for the expensive 3D glasses for each film, and will leave that to the exhibitors – commonly known as the cinemas.

Why should that be such a problem you might ask? Well that bill can run up to US $1 million per film just for supplying the glasses, and remember that there are still limited cinemas showing 3D at the moment in the U.S.

That is a hefty cost for the cinemas to cover, although it won't be that full amount, they'll just have to pay for the glasses for their screens and showings. However you can see where they will recoup that cost from, it's not going to be a simple case of absorbing the costs, especially in the current financial climate. I think it's a safe bet to assume that those costs will come back to the audience.

The Hollywood Reporter goes on to say that Fox is facing a tough time since it's just about to release Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs in 3D and being the only studio so far not to pay for the glasses for the showing it might well reflect in the box office success.

There's even a quote from another unnamed studio, so there's no way to tell how big or small they are:

“They should reconsider their position, until we see how the 3-D rollout goes.”
Is that a suggestion that there might be issues with the rollout of the equipment? That perhaps the total domination of cinema by 3D as the American studios predict might not happen? Oh I hope so.

No other studios have taken an official stance either way as yet, although they all assist in the cost of the special glasses, and this could be the point where they begin taking sides and the idea of whether 3D continues successfully comes down to the people behind the scenes, not the audience.

Will this impact the rollout of 3D films or perhaps the box office returns? Will you pay extra to see a 3D film because you'll be paying a premium for the glasses?

Jackie Chan says 'Karate Kid' remake will be 'Kung Fu Kid' instead: We're outraged...

From ew, ...in the way that we're not outraged at all!

Let's back up a bit. In January, EW reported that Jackie Chan was taking on the Mr. Miyagi-type role in the planned remake of the 1984 hit The Karate Kid, with Will Smith producing and his 10-year-old son Jaden Smith (The Day the Earth Stood Still) on board to wax on and wax off as the eponymous Karate Kid. Except, according to Chan in a recent interview with New Zealand outlet 3 News, the younger Smith will be known as The Kung Fu Kid instead.

A rep for Columbia Pictures tells EW that, in fact, the film's title has yet to be decided -- which is fine, since, either way, I'm not exactly sure what the big, swan-kicking deal is. From The Matrix to Kung Fu Panda, kung fu is certainly far more hip and now a martial art than that musty old karate your grandpa jabbers on about. Besides, the geekosphere consensus seems to be that naming the film Kung Fu Kid would keep the original Karate Kid unsullied by Hollywood's crass campaign to besmirch every single beloved 1980s childhood touchstone...because that certainly never happened with The Karate Kid Part II, The Karate Kid Part III, or The Next Karate Kid, starring a pre-Beverly Hills 90210 Hilary Swank in the title role.

Of course, I am the same writer who got his knickers all be-twiddled over the plans to make another movie based on the board game Clue, so it's not like I'm carrying loads of moral authority on keeping things in perspective. What do you think, P-Dubs? Is Kung Fu Kid a better title? Should they be remaking this movie at all? Or do you just feel kids of the 1980s have a seriously warped perspective on what made for "good" movies back in the days of Reagan, Rambo, and Howard the Duck?

Trading cards reveal new images from Star Trek

Starfleet Academy - San Francisco, CA
From slashfilm, Paramount Pictures has released a batch of trading cards for Star Trek, which reveal some cool unseen sequences and characters. Most notable is Diora Baird as the Orion slave girl. You’ve seen her before kissing Kirk in the trailers, but this is the first time we get a real good look at the character. Other images include Old Spock (Leonard Nimoy) coming face to face with Young Spock (Zachary Quinto), and Scotty’s weird alien sidekick friend.

Star Trek Sequel Announced

From slashfilm, Paramount Pictures is moving forward with development on a Star Trek sequel, hiring Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman and Damon Lindelof to pen the screenplay. Lindelof produced the first film but has been brought on to reteam with Kurtzman and Orci, with whom he is currently co-scripting DreamWorks’ Cowboys and Aliens. Kurtzman told Variety that they will wait to see what fan reaction is to the first film, which hits theaters on May 8th, before proceeding.

“Obviously we discussed ideas, but we are waiting to see how audiences respond next month,” he said. “With a franchise rebirth, the first movie has to be about origin. But with a second, you have the opportunity to explore incredibly exciting things. We’ll be ambitious about what we’ll do.”

They are hoping to have a completed script by Christmas, which would likely mean a summer 2011 release. No decision has been made yet on whether JJ Abrams will return to direct, but he will at least produce.

Of course, the writing deal announcement doesn’t guarantee a green light. If the film somehow underperforms, the sequel won’t happen. It seems like Paramount thinks they have a huge hit in their hands. The studio is holding the film’s premiere more than a month before the film’s domestic release, which is certainly a vote of confidence.

New Villain Created for "Spider-Man" Musical (aka: JPX hates musicals)

I'll kill you with chocolaty goodness!

From worstpreviews, NY Post spoke to director Julie Taymor (The Lion King), whose $40 million musical "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" is set to open in New York at the Hilton Theater in January 2010. "[Spider-Man] is not going to sing and dance in tights," she said, adding that it's more like a "circus rock-'n'-roll drama."

The musical will feature lots of villains for Spidey to battle, including Green Goblin, Carnage, Electro, Rhino, Swarm, Lizard and a completely new one.

Taymor has invented a brand new baddie for the show -- Swiss Miss, whose costume, designed by Oscar winner Eiko Ishioka (Bram Stoker's Dracula), consists of rotating knives and swirling corkscrews.

Michael walking

From worstpreviews, Director Rob Zombie updated his official MySpace page with a brand new look at Tyler Mane as Michael Myers from the upcoming "Halloween" sequel, unfortunately it is just a dark figure walking through the streets.

"Michael on Halloween night," explained Zombie. "Things are about to get very nasty."

"H2" will pick up at the exact moment the first movie stopped and follow the aftermath of Michael Myers murderous rampage through the eyes of heroine Laurie Strode. It is scheduled to hit theaters on August 28th.

Questionable Women's Razor Commercial

From geekology, This is a questionable commercial for the Shick Quattro For Women TrimStyle with Bikini Trimmer. I'm outraged it was allowed to air because my six-year old just asked me about "those transforming bushes". You know what I told him? Decepticons.

Box Office

From ew, The 3-D animated event Monsters vs. Aliens opened in first place, as expected, with a super-solid $58.2 million gross, according to Sunday's estimates from Media by Numbers.

Assuming that early figure holds, DreamWorks Animation's movie garnered the year's biggest debut so far, besting Watchmen's $55.2 mil. It also got, of course, the top premiere of 2009 among 3-D movies like My Bloody Valentine 3-D and Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience.

The family film achieved said success by screening in a variety of fashions -- in regular theaters, on IMAX screens, in 2-D, and in 3-D. In fact, less than a third of its showings were in 3-D, but it still earned a whopping 56 percent of its money (about $32.6 mil) from those 3-D locations, where tickets were more expensive. An additional nine percent of its total (about $5.2 mil) came from 143 higher-priced IMAX shows. Overall, Monsters vs. Aliens played in 4,104 theaters and averaged a stellar $14,181 per. The movie also drew a nice A- CinemaScore review from an audience that was 62 percent under the age of 25. Yeah, it'll be sticking around for several weeks to come.

Meanwhile, The Haunting in Connecticut (No. 2) fared surprisingly well in its opening, grossing $23 mil -- a total that would ordinarily sew up a win. Indeed, had Monsters vs. Aliens not also come out this weekend, The Haunting in Connecticut's big bow would be an even bigger story (guess all those strange and banal posters and trailers served it well!). Even with a weak B- CinemaScore grade from a crowd that was 58 percent female, the fact-based horror flick gave Virginia Madsen the best premiere -- by far -- of her career as a lead actor.

Reigning champ Knowing (No. 3), starring Nicolas Cage, held on well during its second weekend, dropping just 40 percent to earn $14.7 mil. I Love You, Man (No. 4) stayed even stronger, declining a mere 29 percent to gross $12.6 mil. Duplicity was off 46 percent from its first-weekend figure, banking $7.6 mil at No. 5. And this weekend's other big new release, the WWE-produced action thriller 12 Rounds (No. 7), starring John Cena, got pinned with only $5.3 mil.

Overall, the box office was up more than 39 percent from the same frame a year ago, when 21 was the big opener. To be sure, 2009's box office winning streak continues.

Sherlock Holmes Teaser Poster Premieres at ShoWest

From slashfilm, While at ShoWest, LatinoReview has snapped a shot of the teaser poster for Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes, which stars Robert Downey Jr. I’m sure it is just a promotional concept, and the theatrical edition may be different. I was able to clean up the poster a little (reflection removal and reframed perspective) but you’ll have to head on over to LR to check out the snapshot in larger resolution.

They also have a shot of Fox Searchlight’s final poster for (500) Days of Summer, which was one of the posters that was included in the /Film reader poll last month. We’ll be heading to Las Vegas on Monday to join in on the ShoWest festivities, so look out for our coverage.

Finish it Friday: And the winner is...

You know why I love this blog? You just never know what to expect and most times it's better than you could have imagined. I had several ideas in my own head of where this woods story might have gone. I can honestly tell you that none of them involved Urkel, Janis or a giant squirrel. Outstanding entries from the three of you who ventured down this trail, it's truly agonizing having to choose one winner.

Did I do that?

Chuck Naked gets the nails on a chalkboard prize for capturing all of Urkel's incredible annoyingness so vividly. Oh yes, it would be so satisfying to beat him to death and then toss his lifeless corpse over a cliff. Hilarious!

One of the coolest of the dead people I'd like to meet.

Anonythonner gets a peace sign and some beads for reviving the the coolest dead people I could ever hope to meet. Loved this ending.

He's not so tough now, is he

But the winning entry came from Mussina. This had me laughing the whole way through and Kenny Loggins just sealed the deal. Congrats Mussina now step up, reveal your true identity and claim your prize. Good luck next week.

I'm always wary about acknowledging that I like any book but I thought Shutter Island was a lot of fun, albeit unrealistic. This should be good.

Harold Ramis Talks Ghostbusters 3

From slashfilm, MTV was able to get Harold Ramis to talk about the next Ghostbusters movie, which is currently in the development/scripting stage with The Office/Year One scribes Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky working on the script. Ramis has yet to receive a first draft in hand but claims that he has been consulting with the screenwriting duo, along with Dan Aykroyd, Ivan Reitman (who helmed the original film).

The biggest bit of news is that Ramis confirmed that all of the original Ghostbusters will return for the third film if it does happen, and that includes Bill Murray (Dr. Peter Venkman).

“We’re all going to be in it in different kinds of roles,” Ramis said. “We’re going to be the sage mentors. There are going to be young Ghostbusters.”

This confirms previous reports that the original Ghostbusting team would be passing the torch to a new group of scientists turned supernatural exterminators. It will be interesting to see how this develops, and to see if Murray, who Ramis calls “the thorniest of the group”, actually signs on to participate in the new film.

Have a great weekend people!

Finish it Friday: Hurry, Last Chance to Enter!!!!

So being bestowed with the honor of writing a starter for Finish it Friday I had to think about what direction I wanted to take this in. JSP's bold and exciting leap into Horrotica is a very tough act to follow. So I was thinking, what if I wrote a starter that is a perfect set up for anything. The story starts off pleasant enough and has an event that leads to, well, whatever. Being that the story starts off lightheartedly it can be continued that way if the author so chooses but it also leaves a set for something strange, or terrible or even erotic if you like. It's basically a generic starter story that I'm leaving to you the enders to take wherever your little hearts so desire.

Here are a couple of inspirational pictures for you to chew on.

Oh these are some happy woods we've found here.

Uh, I'm not so sure if I want to go in there.

So, without further ado. I give you, Alone in the Woods.

It was a fine fall day. The air was crisp but not too cold, the perfect day for a stroll through the woods. I always loved the fall. Not just because of the vibrant changing colors, but more for that certain feeling that’s in the air. Today that feeling was coming through like a ray of sunlight through the trees. You could smell winter coming in yet the temperature was still warm enough to really enjoy the outdoors. I slid into my most comfortable jeans, slipped on a sweatshirt and my best walking shoes and then I was off. I drove out to a familiar spot where locals can jump onto the Appalachian Trail. It’s an interesting & visual hike and being that it was a weekday in late September the trail would be virtually empty. I like to hike alone, maybe it’s not the smartest thing to do but I really feel like I’m connecting with nature that way.

I headed off down the familiar path taking in the clean scent of the trees. All was quiet today, just the way I hoped it would be. I kept a canteen strapped around my waist and with each step I could hear the gentle sloshing of the spring water inside. That sound kept my pace steady, I could feel my stress melting away already. After a while I stopped briefly for a drink from my trusty canteen and watched a pair of playful squirrels chasing each other. They scampered up the tree, then back down again, so involved in their game that they hardly noticed me. I thought about sharing the granola bar in my pocket with them but decided against it, never know how long I might end up walking and I’d be really happy to have it if I got hungry later.
I spoke aloud to the happy critters, “Oh well squirrly Q’s, you’re outta luck today.”
It’s so strange hearing your own voice in an isolated area. It seemed so foreign and out of place. Even the squirrels were startled by it and stood frozen eyeing me suspiciously.
“Sorry guys,” time to get moving.

I continued walking for some time enjoying the woodsy potpourri as it tickled my olfactory senses. Something in that aroma triggered childhood memories of my days with the scouts. Hiking, sleeping out in the woods, cooking over an open fire and laughing with my friends. Such good times. I began singing silly childhood songs as I strolled, adding a little skip to my step. “ Miss Lucy had a steamboat, the steamboat had a bough. Miss Lucy went to heaven and the steamboat went to, Hello operator… “
It’s funny how the human memory works. Triggered by scents it can pull out all sorts of information you thought you had forgotten. I wondered if somewhere in there I still remembered how to play Chinese jump rope or Jacob’s ladder.

As I walked along musing about my childhood I suddenly became aware of footsteps behind me. My face flushed with embarrassment. Had they heard me singing? Maybe it was just the squirrels. A twig snap, then more steps. Definitely not squirrels. Okay, I’ll just pick up my pace. I’m not far from the turn off for the scenic overlook. I’ll turn there, rest for a few minutes then head back. As I walked more rapidly I could hear the pace of the other quicken as well. That’s strange? Maybe not, perhaps they were keeping pace with me. I’ll lose them at the turn off. I could see the path just ahead, salvation. I took the right fork that led up to the overlook, the steps behind followed. Dammit! Time to buck up and face the music. To hell with embarrassment, if they heard me they heard me. I reached the guardrail atop the hill and turned to see…

Nudge, nudge, wink wink: Monty Python is back at 40

By Gary Strauss, USA TODAY
Their offbeat humor poked fun at everything from British royalty to killer rabbits. On the 40th anniversary of the debut of Monty Python's Flying Circus, the series' principal performers will be making an extended appearance on cable network IFC.
The six-part documentary Monty Python: Almost the Truth (The Lawyer's Cut) airs Oct. 4-10 and features John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin, who, along with founding member Graham Chapman created groundbreaking humor with such sketches as "The Ministry of Silly Walks" and "The Upper Class Twit of the Year."

IFC's Python Week also will include airings of the films Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Monty Python's Life of Brian and Monty Python Live at the Hollywood Bowl.

Directed by Alan Parker, the documentary explores the troupe's 1960s roots and examines its impact on comedy. Guest interviews include Steve Martin, Jimmy Fallon, Hugh Grant, Rowan Atkinson, Eddie Izzard, Tim Roth, Seth Green and Joan Rivers.

"This is the documentary I always hoped that would be made — something so complete and so faithful to the truth that I don't need to watch it," says Jones.

Facebook changes coming in response to user complaints

(CNET) -- Facebook users haven't exactly been reticent about their dislike for Facebook's recent redesign. And Facebook staff want you to know they're listening.

Facebook is making a handful of changes after being deluged with negative feedback about its new layout.

Facebook has been deluged with feedback on its new layout, much of it negative but constructive, according to a blog posted Tuesday by Product Director Christopher Cox.

Hundreds of thousands of people gave the redesign a thumbs-down in a user poll. And groups like "MEMBERS WANT THE OLD FACEBOOK BACK!" have formed to voice their discontent.

While the social network isn't reverting back to the old page design, they are making a handful of changes to appease some of the outraged masses, according to Cox, who has also worked as director of human resources and software engineer at the company.

Go here for a list of all the changes.

The Sorcerer’s Apprentice

From slashfilm, Disney’s The Sorcerer’s Apprentice is currently shooting in New York City and the gossip sites have the first look at the film’s cast. JustJared has the first photos of Nicolas Cage (WTF?) filming a scene in a subway station with co-star Jay Baruchel.

Loosely adapted from the classic story from Fantasia, and based in modern-day Manhattan, Baruchel stars as Cage’s Apprentice, who gets into trouble when the broomstick he’s tasked to do his chores while the Sorcerer is away somehow develops a mind of its own. Alfred Molina, not pictured, plays an evil sorcerer. I enjoyed the first National Treasure film (on a pure popcorn level) and am willing to give Jon Turteltaub another chance after Book of Secrets. Celebrity-Gossip has a bunch of photos of Teresa Palmer (Bedtime Stories), who plays Baruchel’s love interest.

Haiku Hump Day Results - AKA "Johnny has a name for his sack?"

I'd have gotten back in time
To post on Wednesday

Truth be told, I actually got back to my place with a couple hours to spare. But having been on the road since 11 am and crossing most of the state of California and while having to listen to my dad's dumb puns, I just couldn't muster the enthusiasm to add anything.

I did read through all of the posts and formulated some preliminary opinions on which were the winners. I reread the 'kus this morning and my favorite from the night before remained my favorite. More on that in a bit.

First, the Runners-up:

Early on, JPX makes a brilliant logical plea...

"The future is now"
That never made any sense
Now is the present

Puff, we'll all get our own personal security detail, right?

I dream of the day
Postapocalyptic horde
is mine to command

Stan attempts to please everyone. Except the Muslims, really...

Another city
Would solve problems immensely
Islam, take Cleveland

Octo's first was a beaut...

Damn holo pornstar
Frakker's on the fritz again
Damn Mickey Mouse head

but the real payoff came moments later...

Transporter mishap
Won me a big lawsuit, but
Damn Mickey Mouse head

AC, I'm sure Keith has a dog that communicates with him telepathically, and I'm also sure that the dog's voice is the same as Keith's...

nuclear fallout
earth a desolate wasteland
yet keith richards lives

Prediction: Freeek, first to recognize the void, will be commissioned by the Soylent Corporation to write the first protein cracker cookbook...

What a shit future
Nothing to eat but crackers
they need recipes

All solid entries.

But I think everyone knew, the moment we read it, which one was going to come out on top. It's not just that it's funny, it's got pathos -- and it's got enough of both that I'm sure you all will understand that I'm not awarding Johnny Sweatpants the top prize merely because he did me the awesome favor of posting this week's HHD thread while I was robo-skiing in Tahoe.

Sex with a robot?
I did that for many years
Have you met my ex?

Genius. So much so that I second Handsome Stan's suggestion that this be inscribed in the HHD Hall of Fame. I guess that means that I move that there be a separate blog specifically to honor the best haiku our nerdy minds have produced.

The Future's the Past
All this has happened before
End of Line, bitches!

When Dinos Are Packaged Together, I Win

From geekology, Pfft, that ain't no fail. That, my friends, is a win. A big 'ol Geekologie Writer win. Now who wants to drive me to the toy store?

Have a Better Look at Cobra Commander's Stupid Encased Head

From iwatchstuff, The G.I. Joe forum HissTank has posted some new shots of the Cobra Commander toy, complete with head enclosure, fashion trenchcoat, "M.A.R.S. Industries radical exponential nano-injector system", and a snake. Some questions:

1. Look, I understand that sometimes comic book and cartoon visuals have to be reeled in for the big screen, but why replace the character's traditional, relatively humble metal mask (or sometimes hood) with this far more outlandish Terminator skull respirator?

2. Is this head thing metal or glass? I really can't tell. The photo makes it look metallic, but on the toy I can clearly see his Freddy Krueger head. Plus, the toy's included file card notes that Cobra Commander's "mask covers disfiguring damage from a fiery accident," so if it's transparent, it's doing its job horribly. Unless it's like those Transitions lenses.

3. When Cobra Commander got out of the surgery or whatever to put his head in this thing, was he not like, "Was I not clear that half the point of the mask was to make my horribly disfigured face slightly less repulsive? So why did you give me the nose of the FernGully bat? Come on, guys."

Crabs, Robots

I don't know if other 'thonners ever follow the Onion News Network (The Onion's recently-added video component), but it's really surprisingly good. I'd stayed away from it for a long time, expecting "Mad TV"-style broad parody, but the style and precision (and the incredible detail) of the stuff is really amazing.

Anyway these two recent "news items" have a horror/sci-fi bent, so I thought you guys would enjoy them. As with all ONN items, you can freeze-frame on the embedded press clippings and totally read them.

Experts Agree Giant, Razor-Clawed Bioengineered Crabs Pose No Threat

Are We Giving The Robots That Run Our Society Too Much Power?

Battle of the Planets is coming soon

From denofgeek, We knew Gatchaman here as Battle Of The Planets. And there’s a movie coming…

The Japanese television series Gatchaman had a bit of a troubled journey across the globe. The core series - Science Ninja Team Gatchaman - was chopped about a bit by the time it made it to the UK and US, but the Battle Of The Planets animated series that was made out of it, while softer than the original version, is still one of the most loved cartoon serials of its generation.

The good news is that, right now, an animated movie is being made of Gatchaman by Imagi Studios, and that Warner Bros will be distributing it worldwide next year. We're really quite keen to see it, too, and we're thus indebted to Gatchakan Blog for uploading the first promotional image we've seen from the film. The poster we've got here is just a teaser at this stage, but it can nonetheless consider its work done. We're suitably teased.

It makes perfect sense

From wwtdd, For years Hollywood has tried to make a "Three Stooges" movie, but could never to find three actors good enough at physical comedy to recreate such recognizable characters. So now they’re just gonna just stop trying and make the movie anyway. Variety says...

MGM and the Farrelly brothers are closing in on their cast for "The Three Stooges."
Sean Penn will play Larry, and negotiations are underway with Jim Carrey to play Curly, with the actor already making plans to gain 40 pounds to approximate the physical dimensions of Jerome "Curly" Howard.

The studio is zeroing in on Benicio Del Toro to play Moe.

The film is not a biopic, but rather a comedy built around the antics of the three characters.

I just hope they have some kind of disclaimer so I can tell between the new version and the old one. If they don’t, I’ll just have to remember that in the old version, it was Larry who was Puerto Rican and mumbled incoherently, and Moe was the middle-aged one who was super angry and took human growth hormones. In the movie version, it’s the opposite.

Nightmare on Elm Street Remake Plot Details Revealed

From slashfilm, LatinoReview have published a video script review for Wesley Strick’s script for Platinum Dunes remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street. Here are some of the core plot details that I learned from the report:

After being burned alive by a mob of angry parents, a pre-school gardener/caretaker named Freddy returns for revenge against the children, now 18 years old, that accused him of sexual abuse. But was Freddy a child molester or was he falsely accused? This is the central question and main addition to the film’s plot. Freddy doesn’t have many lines, but that isn’t all that surprising considering that the film’s producers have said the character doesn’t joke around.
