In director Brad Anderson's (The Machinist) new post-apocalyptic horror movie, Vanishing on 7th Street, a mysterious blackout causes the majority of the human population to simply vanish, leaving only a handful of survivors to try to piece together the mystery...if they can stay alive. In the last preview clip that was released for the movie, we saw Luke (Hayden Christensen), a reporter in Detroit, waking up to find the city empty, with nothing but piles of clothing marking where people used to be. In the latest clip, Paul (John Leguizamo) seeks refuge in one of the only places in the city with power, a tavern with its own generator. But, when the power begins to go out, the evil that lurks within the darkness begins to creep in around him. watch the new clip >> Posted 01.12.11 by BrentJS
Director Brad Anderson isn't part of the Hollywood elite (yet), but those paying attention know that Anderson has been putting together an impressive resume over the past 10 years with dark thrillers like 2004's The Machinist and the creepy horror movie Session 9. Anderson's latest movie, Vanishing on 7th Street seems somewhere in the middle of those two previous works, as it follows a small group of survivors in a post-apocalyptic landscape, who slowly begin to realize that they have to try to stay alive from something hidden in the darkness. John Leguizamo, Thandie Newton, and Hayden Christensen star in the movie, which has a new trailer to promote its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Other than a few still images that were released back in May, there has been virtually nothing heard about director Brad Anderson's (The Machinist) new post-apocalyptic horror movie, Vanishing on 7th Street, since it went into post-production. Now, Merrick Entertainment has opened the promotional floodgates, releasing a new theatrical poster, several more new still images and a six-and-a-half-minute video from the set of the movie featuring commentary from Anderson, stars John Leguizamo and Thandie Newton, and others.

New pics have surfaced of an interesting apocalyptic horror movie starring Hayden Christensen and John Leguizamo. Called Vanishing on 7th Street, it's from Brad Anderson, who gave us The Machinist, and sounds like a Stephen King-inspired thriller.
Set in a once-thriving city, a global blackout has seemingly caused residents to simply vanish, leaving only their clothes and possessions behind. A small handful of survivors band together in a dimly-lit tavern on 7th Street, struggling to combat the apocalyptic horror. Realizing they may in fact be the last people on earth, the darkness hones in on them alone. Posted 05.19.10 by reelz
Despite having voiced the loveable sloth Sid in two previous Ice Age films, comedian John Leguizamo found that he had to prepare himself to voice the character in the third film, Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs:
I've got to walk around the house a lot the day before, working on the lisp so that it's not too much, that it's just right.
Sid's a vulnerable character, with a higher-pitched voice than you'd think. So I have to tighten up, get the voice up there so that he doesn't sound like a sloth who's been out partying all night.
In addition to Leguizamo reprising his role as the voice of Sid, Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs features the return of Ray Romano as the voice of Manny, Queen Latifah as Ellie, and Denis Leary as Diego. Posted 06.29.09 by BrentJS
Most of what has leaked about Gamer so far is admittedly not very funny. Where's the humor in be manipulated in combat to the death by some master computer geek? But there is a lighter side to this dystopian tale of future gaming, John Leguizamo tells Sci Fi Wire. Leguizamo, who plays the character Freek in the movie, says he is there primarily to provide some comic relief:
I'm like a Renfield in the Dracula story, that crazy guy who's locked up in an insane asylum ... I'm in there; I have all this information, and I'm in the prison. I'm in the game.
In the game, but not involved in the butt-kicking so much. That, he says, he is leaving up to Gerard Butler, who plays Kable, the cyber-gladiator at the center of the action. Posted 06.10.09 by reelz
Super-secretive thrill-monger M. Night Shyamalan is at it again. The writer-director is putting together his next movie, The Happening, a thriller about a man (Mark Wahlberg) who tries to save his family when a natural disaster threatens to end the world.
John Leguizamo and Spencer Breslin (brother of Little Miss Sunshine cutie Abigail) have recently joined the cast.
As anyone who watches Entourage knows, Shyamalan is notoriously hush-hush about his projects (neurotic paranoia might be a better description). Thus, not much else is known about the movie--other than it begins filming next month in Philadelphia (of course). Posted 07.18.07 by reelz
LiveMansion.com is a social networking website (a la MySpace and Friendster) with over 100,000 members. Keeping in line with the creative community whose interests it serves, Ckrush Enertainment will be producing Live Mansion: The Movie.
And just what is so exciting about that? Well, Live Mansion: The Movie is going to be the first film produced by a social network. There are 24 finalists for 8 lead roles. LiveMansion.com members earn "producer points" for participating. Over 600,000 votes were cast during the competition for the movie's director.
Actors John Leguizamo (Ice Age: The Meltdown, Moulin Rouge) and Cara Buono (Third Watch, Beer League) will judge the final round of casting for the 8 lead roles.
I was all ready to say something snarky about how this doesn't exactly seem like a very promising concept for a movie, but then Leguizamo went and said this: "I thought it would be a great opportunity to help actors that are trying to make it in this industry."
Damn him, and his generous Latin heart. Posted 03.28.07 by reelz
