A new trailer has gone live for the offbeat sci-fi-themed Gentleman Broncos, from the director of Napoleon Dynamite, which centers on Benjamin (Michael Angarano), a lovable loner whose story gets ripped off by fantasy novelist Ronald Chevalier (Flight of the Conchords' Jemaine Clement) and then is adapted into a disastrous movie. It opens Oct. 30.


Bloody-Disgusting reported a rumor that Legendary Pictures is developing a new version of Godzilla, which would be different from the bloated 1998 Roland Emmerich/Matthew Broderick disaster.

Speaking of Bloody-Disgusting, they also report that Kate Beckinsale has indeed signed to appear in a proposed fourth Underworld movie, the first in a proposed trilogy, to be shot in 3-D and arriving in theaters Jan. 21, 2011.

The Toronto International Film Festival has confirmed that John Hillcoat's post-apocalyptic sci-fi movie The Road will screen as part of the Special Presentation Program, the InContention Web site reported.

Speaking of Godzilla, three classic sci-fi films by the Japanese director of the original film, Ishiro Honda, make their DVD debuts when Sony Pictures Home Entertainment releases Icons of Sci-Fi: Toho Collection on Aug. 18; the DVD will include the much-sought-after titles H-Man (1958), Battle in Outer Space (1959) and Mothra (1961), digitally remastered in both Japanese and U.S. versions.
