It’s a slew of rotten pictures at the theatres this weekend. First up is the comic book movie sequel Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. So the first flick was terrible and the trailer for the second one looked a bit more promising but according to the critics, that is not the case. Who knew sequelitis could attack a bad film? There’s also the rom-com actioner This Means War starring Tom Hardy, Reese Witherspoon and Chris Pine. You can also catch Canadian actress Laura Vandervoort in the movie, so let’s start this off with her.
After the jump, the Friday Night Lights movie kinda lives on for now, watch Abraham Lincoln kill vampires, a behind the scenes look at Harold and Kumar in claymation and Jeremy Lin shows you how to get into Harvard.
Peter Berg was quite serious when he said he wanted to continue the Friday Night Lights story by doing a movie following the show’s 5 season run. Now the script is about done and the big thing standing in the way of getting it made is the actors’ busy schedules. (MTV)

Catch a look at the teaser trailer for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. So the concept seems a bit silly but it does look like good fun. As an added plus, Johnny Cash kinda acts as the movie trailer voice guy (courtesy of a certain snippet from one of his songs).

A Very Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas was quite the laugh riot and certainly lived up to the craziness of the previous two flicks. One of the highlights was definitely the claymation portion of the film and here’s a behind the scenes look at that segment. (Maxim)

One of my favourite films from 2011 is 50/50 and I was quite disappointed when it was (as expected) ignored at the Oscars. Here’s a short blurb arguing why it should have gotten that best picture nod. (MTV)

Since everyone is going Lin-sane at the moment, let’s take some time and dig out a video that Jeremy Lin made late last year before he started making a splash with the Knicks in New York. Yes, he has a Youtube channel on the side to post random videos… though it hasn’t been updated in a while now that he has a steady job. Anyway, here’s a fun look at how to get into Harvard… according to J.Lin featuring Ryan Higa.
