#GIVEAWAY: ENTER TO WIN “TEXAS CHAINSAW” ON DVD STARRING ALEXANDRA DADDARIO
Texas Chainsaw 3D continues the legendary story of the homicidal Sawyer family, picking up where Tobe Hooper’s 1974 Horror Classic left off in Newt, Texas. Decades later and hundreds of miles away from the original massacre, a young woman named Heather learns that she has inherited a Texas estate from a Grandmother she never knew she had. After embarking on a road trip with friends to uncover her roots, she finds she is the sole owner of a lavish, isolated Victorian Mansion. But her newfound wealth comes at a price as she stumbles upon a horror that awaits her in the Mansion’s dank cellars.
Special appearances from four beloved cast members from previous installments of the Franchise: Gunnar Hansen, Marilyn Burns, John Dugan and Bill Moseley.

Reviews equally are solid with it earning a stellar 92% on Rotten Tomatoes’ Tomatometer. Many are seeing this latest Effort from Oscar-winning Director Kathryn Bigelow as a legitimate contender to win Best Picture next month.
A Haunted House opens in 2,160 theatres south of the border for Open Road Films, earning $17.5 million and opening in second. The Horror-Comedy stars Marlon Wayans and spoofs Found-Footage Horrors like Paranormal Activity and The Devil Inside and has yet to be released in Canada. Critics as expected, ripped the Film to shreds, earning a paltry 10% on the Tomatometer, but Users overwhelmingly gave it an 85% rating and Cinemascore gave it a B- rating; not bad.
After delays, Mobster Drama Gangster Squad debuts respectably in third with $17 million from 3,103 theatres. Made for $75 million, the slick-looking Film boasts a stellar Cast including Sean Penn, Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, Giovanni Ribisi and Emma Stone.

Still going strong after a Christmas release, Django Unchained lands in fourth this week for The Weinstein Co./Alliance Films, earning $14.5 million.

The Hobbit in its fifth week lands in sixth with $9 million – to date earning $277 million domestically. This places it just ahead of Disney‘s Lincoln which earns a v. solid $6.3 million in its tenth week.

#SPOTTED: ALEXANDRA DADDARIO IN TORONTO FOR “TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 3D”
Beautiful and burgeoning, Alexandra Daddario is a name to look-out for. The Star of VVS Films’ upcoming Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D already boasts an incredible Résumé and you may actually recognize her from her work on Parenthood, Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Percy Jackson & the Olympians and White Collar.
Looking a vision of festivity in pink, Daddario was out at Global Television‘s The Morning Show earlier today promoting the eagerly-awaited Remake which sees a young Woman have to travel to Texas with her Friends to collect an inheritance… only to run into a Chainsaw-wielding Maniac. Don’t you bloody hate it when that happens? The Horror is poised to scare the heck out of Moviegoers next month when it sees a release.
“Thanks so much for standing out in the cold for me”, Daddario says with gratitude. I clarified that what we’re experiencing here in Toronto actually is considered mild and she comments back, “Oh believe me, I know – I’m from New York!”.
So get this, the Actress was incredibly sweet to sign a Photo for me, which I am going to give away to a lucky Reader. If you’re interested, simply click “like” on this Post at Mr. Will Wong on Facebook – I’ll pick one of you at random early January!
