Tristan just got out of The Wolfman panel at Comic Con (lucky bastard) and came back with both good and bad news.
Under normal circumstances an Anaconda sequel made for the Sci-Fi Channel would not elicit any degree of excitement of my part but when the sequel stars David Hasselhoff and the prospect of seeing "The Hoff" fight and possibly get eaten by a huge snake looms on the horizon, yeah, consider me officially interested.
Joey M. pointed us to YouTube where a trailer for the long awaited Return to Sleepaway Camp was housed. The film will hopefully arrive on October 14th thanks to Magnolia Pictures.
Creepy just called in from Comic Con with a ton of details about the upcoming Mortal Kombat Vs. DC Universe video game, which as we told you yesterday will not be bloodless as we had originally feared!
Just got word from the mighty valuerocker regarding the upcoming Blu-ray release of Starship Troopers 3: Marauder, which hits on August 5th, 2008 (pre-order).
UPDATE: According to Crank scribe Mark Neveldine, Troma's Lloyd Kaufman will have a cameo in Crank 2 along with Gelnn Howard ("It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia") and someone we thought bit the big one in the first film, Efren Ramirez. Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor made probably one of the most underrated movies of 2006, Crank. It was tasteless, bloody and funny. Sadly, we all thought Chev Chelios (Jason Statham) was a goner when he fell a few thousand feet and smashed into a car.
One of the bigger announcements from yesterday's show was Robert Rodriguez’s Red Sonja. The adaptation of the popular sword and sandals (and lots of blood) will be coming our way from Millennium Films next year.
Yesterday Sony released Siren: Blood Curse in the States, and I’ve managed to play through a couple of the episodes. Due to the really rather bizarre fashion in which it’s been released, I want to give some quick impressions to help you guys make up your minds.
Not sure how we missed this one, but thankfully the keen-eyed folks at AICN did not; they snapped this shot of a teaser poster for the upcoming CG-animated movie The Goon, based on the Dark Horse series created by Eric Powell. As you can see, much like The Goon itself, it is all sorts of badass!
Just wanted to throw you guys an update; we have more images of Comic Con madness up in our official gallery for the show, so be sure you head on over and check ‘em out. Among the highlights are some candid moments with The Rock from the Race to Witch Mountain junket and some great pics of general Comic Con oddness.
Leonardo DiCaprio seems to have a soft spot in his heart for “The Twilight Zone”, citing it as one of his favorite shows, so together with Warner Bros. and his own production company, Appian Way, Leo is looking for material to put a brand-new feature together.
Wow, some news that’s not coming out of Comic Con directly. Very strange to report. But that’s what Variety is good for. They got word this morning that Legendary Pictures has come on board the production of the Gears of War to co-finance the project.
Some interesting things are going to start happening over at the Repo! site in the coming weeks according to an announcement made at Comic-Con.
A Saw V clip is spinning right now at Comic-Con, and we've got the description of it right here! First, Buz chimed in saying the trap shown in the fourth Saw sequel's teaser was a "glass box thing stuck on a dude's head." OK, that as descriptive as we're going to get, I guess, but Buz sure made me laugh with that text message. Anyway, on to the clip...
Good news fans of brutality and mayhem! The long-standing rumors that the upcoming Mortal Kombat Vs. DC Universe video game will be bloodless are 100% false! That’s right, Nomad just got in touch with us from the sticky floor of Comic Con with the good news! So no more worries that both Mortal Kombat and your favorite heroes from DC will wuss out in their first outing together.
