    Question Sentence

    I'm not sure about this sentence:

    "the Lord of Chaos movie will be released soon. Twilight vampires will be there and other stuff. Oh Lord, I'm crying blood and Dead' s turning over in his grave."

    First question: Should I write "Dead (singer nickname) is turning.." or without "is". Which is correct?
    Second: "will be released soon" or "will be release soon"

    Don't put spaces before apostrophes. Put titles of books, movies, plays, newspapers, and magazines in italics.

    If "The" is part of the movie's title, don't say "movie" after the title. If it's not, then you're correct.

    asphyxia, please note that a better title would have been The Lord of Chaos movie.

    No, "The" isn't part of movie. Thank you for your help.
