The cast and crew of My Bloody Valentine 3D told ShockTillYouDrop.com tonight on the film’s red carpet that a sequel is looking good.
They said that you can expect all the surviving members of the cast to return for the follow-up should the film do well at the box office. Kerr Smith told us that director Patrick Lussier has a number of ideas where to take the sequel. “It’s been discussed, we’re working on that,” the actor relayed to us. “The way they leave this movie, anything could happen. I talked to Patrick the other day and he’s got some great ideas.”
Writer Todd Farmer confirmed he has also been talking with Lussier about their narrative options.
A few days in advance of the show’s mid-season return, Supernatural fans have launched their second annual charity drive/ratings ploy called Support Supernatural. The campaign aims to collect donations on behalf of the show’s hunky stars, Jared Padaleki and Jensen Ackles, and provide a little press for the CW show.
Donations will benefit the Best Friends Animal Society and Make-A-Wish Foundation International, both great causes the actors have supported in the past. The groups organizers report that they raised $5,000 last year and are aiming for $10,000 this year. Donations on behalf of both actors can be made via SupportSupernatural.com or at Best Friends Animal Society and Make-A-Wish Foundation International
The campaign runs until August 2009, so you have plenty of time.

Madison in Eugene, Ore.: What’s the latest on Jared and Jensen on Supernatural?
Let’s just say that if you happen to look like these dreamy dudes above (and God bless you for it), you should contact the CW right away, because I’m hearing that yes, you guessed it! There just might be a third freaking Winchester brother out there. Hear that? It’s the sound of my mind exploding! I’m told that the possible third brother has not been cast, but we’ll start hearing rumblings of another son courtesy of Dean and Sam’s father John Winchester, aka Jeffrey Dean Morgan, this season. Seriously, does that dead dude get around or what?! Meanwhile, I’m dying to know what you think of this twist and if anyone out there could possibly be delicious enough to pull off the same genetic code as Jensen and Jared. So please comment below, and if you have any casting suggestions, bring ’em!
Mary: On Supernatural, do you know if Alistair was destroyed or just repelled? I’m curious if we’re going to see him again?
Yes, Alastair will return later this season, but in a new, nastier “meat sock” form.
The most obvious critique applied to pretty much any 3-D movie is, would this film work as well without the 3-D? In most instances the answer is no, and in the case of MY BLOODY VALENTINE 3D, that’s more or less the case.
Take the 3-D out of it and VALENTINE is really no different from average direct-to-DVD slasher fodder, albeit not a bad example by any means. And as the current slate of remakes goes, this new MY BLOODY VALENTINE measures up decently to the original, which was neither the best nor the worst of the lot (though it works better now as a nostalgia piece), and is a fairly respectful retelling. But all of this is irrelevant, since the new BLOODY VALENTINE was made to be seen and experienced in three dimensions (the first horror film shot with the Real D process) and this is what gives the film the large majority of its entertainment value. If you don’t experience this one in a theater in 3-D, you’ll be missing out on all the fun.
For those who are fans of the original, you’ll be pleased to know that MY BLOODY VALENTINE 3D is not a “reimagining” of the original but rather a pretty straightforward remake, keeping a large majority of the 1981 film’s storyline and characters and making certain changes that work for the better. One of the things that set the first movie apart was the fact that it was populated mainly by adults and not horny teenagers, and the new version takes the same course, although these leads are mainly young adults. It retains the same plot structure—deranged miner slaughters his co-workers and townsfolk before supposedly being killed himself, and a new series of murders occur years later, along with the love-triangle subplot and murder-mystery aspect (which Todd Farmer and Zane Smith’s script works fairly hard to keep us guessing about). None of this makes for truly riveting drama, but it all works as best it can, and as a plotline to basically connect a bunch of gory 3-D killings, it is reasonably watchable on these terms.
