HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON POSTER AND FEATURETTE
Dreamworks Animation has released a new poster and featurette for How to Train Your Dragon, a viking adventure with the same visual style as Shrek and Kung Fu Panda. Featurette showing lessons that can be learned while training the different species of dragons from the film.

NEWSBITE: WRITER, DIRECTOR TEAM UP FOR REVERSE WEREWOLF FILM
In Human, a “twist on the traditional werewolf story,” a wolf turns into a man. If you dig that, you’ll be happy to know that Perfect Circle Productions and Blind Spot are partnering for this tale and are moving on it with director AJ Annila and writer Doug Taylor.
Annila directed Sauna and Taylor is one of the screenwriters on Splice. Annila says, “With Human I expect to do a totally different kind of werewolf film, so don’t expect anything familiar to this sub-genre.”
MIKE THE PIKE SECURES ACCLAIMED PRODUCER FOR GEORGE R.R. MARTIN’S ‘THE SKIN TRADE’
Mike The Pike Productions, Inc. and Oscar Award contender Ryan Colucci, have entered into a partnership agreement securing Colucci as a Co-Producer on the screen adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s “The Skin Trade.” The werewolf novella, recently optioned by Mike the Pike Productions, is described by Newbauer and Colucci as “‘Silence of the Lambs’ meets ‘The Howling,’ that said, the story itself is something one could only expect from the mind of world-renown, award-winning fantasy author, George R.R. Martin.”
“We couldn’t be happier to have signed Ryan to the team for ‘Skin Trade,'”says Mark B. Newbauer, CEO/President of Mike the Pike Productions. “This is quite a coup for MTP and its shareholders as Ryan is more than a producer by title; He’s an accomplished producer with solid industry deals and contacts in every aspect of the industry.

CLASH OF THE TITANS ON SET: BUBO, BLACK PEGASUS AND F-BOMBS
We went to the set of Louis Leterrier’s upcoming reboot of the classic mythology movie Class of the Titans last summer, and one thing we took away from it is this: It definitely isn’t a straight remake.
Oh, there’s Perseus (played by Sam Worthington), a cool new Medusa, a cool new Kraken, Andromeda (Alexa Davalos) and lots of sword-fighting.
But there’s also cooler versions of the giant scorpions, bat-winged harpies, eyeless Stygian witches and tons of new monsters, and Zeus (Liam Neeson) doesn’t wear a white, diaphanous woman’s gown: He wears armor, as befits the king of the gods.
And what about Bubo, the mechanical owl? He’s in it. But not for long.

The How To Train Your Dragon Featurette was quite amusing. Definately got me interested in the film. What did you think?
‘Human’ sounds interesting. I wonder how that story line will play out? A werewolf turning into a man. What’s so wrong with that? Maybe he doesn’t want to be human. Who knows. We need more information before commenting further. What are your thoughts?
Adding yourself to trailers or videos, related to movies, are cool. Once. Other than that…meh. Now, if they made an interactive game instead, say with different endings depending on which route you take, then that would be something. Especially with a movie like The Crazies. Run from the psychos QUICK! (Sound effects play…”Sorry, you got caught…you have been hacked to death with an axe. Please try again”.) Give me some of that action.
I knew it would happen. As soon as The Wolfman was released, I just knew we’d see more and more werewolf movies popping up. 2010 is the Year of the Werewolf. Vampires had their day in the sun, well…their day in the night…last year. They’ve been kicked to the cold dirt. Do you think werewolves will have the same appeal as vampires still do? Skin Trade sounds awesome if it will in fact be like Silence of the Lambs meets The Howling.
I’m trying not to read too much on Clash of the Titans. This article give a lot of insights on certain scenes. I want to be surprised by creatures and what happens. Do pour over every article about a film you’re waiting to see? Or would you rather be surprised and just look at the cool posters as a teaser?
