Beyond the Rave, the first movie from the resurrected Hammer Films, has been dropping bits and pieces of news out there for months, but no word on how we'd get to see it, only that it would be online. Today it was finally revealed where the film will be making its debut; MySpace!
No matter where you are right now, I’m sure you can hear the sound of the damned crying out in fear as their toasty, warm home for a millennia becomes colder and colder by the second; yes, dear readers, hell has frozen over. Why?
Nothing like getting your start directing films with a zombie comedy! Such is the case for Ruben Fleischer (pictured), who Variety reported this morning is in talks to helm Zombieland, a comedy for Columbia Pictures and producer Gavin Polone (Primeval).
Yet another film joins the growing disturbingly fast, "See a Few Minutes Now", trend -- this time it's the giant monster mash, Cloverfield. But the shenanigans don't stop there! Not only will you get to see a few minutes of the flick, you'll also get a chance to score your very own private screening!
You thought seeing the opening credit sequence of Sweeney Todd was cool? How about 9 clips from the movie? Just head on over to the "Clips" tab in Video Dread to check ‘em out! Sweeney Todd opens everywhere December 21st everywhere!
What’s with this sudden trend of putting up the opening minutes of a film online? Whatever happened to good old-fashioned clips?
We last gave you word on My Name is Bruce a scant two weeks ago ("Bruce Talks Home Invasion" – November 2007) and now the claims of them “madly racing” to finish the film have been justified. Reader "chainsaw" dropped us a heads-up today that the trailer for My Name is Bruce found its way onto YouTube and you can check it out below! Hopefully some solid release news will follow shortly, stick around!
We last threw an update on Stacy Davidson’s sophomore effort, Sweatshop, just over a month ago (“Exclusive: Behind the Sweatshop!” – November 2007), after which director Stacy Davidson promised he would deliver some very cool stuff in our laps soon.
Been looking forward to Marc Caro’s Dante 01, his first solo directing project away from Jean-Piere Jeunet (City of Lost Children), and so have the boys at Twitch Film. So much so that they managed to score a look at the entire opening sequence for Dante 01 and post it on their site!
Personally, I’m almost looking forward to Sweeney Todd at this point, though director Tim Burton does have a habit of being a tad derivative of himself; just the look of the film shows this one’s no different. But I admit, the story fascinates me and we haven’t had a good musical in years.
With the new "zombedy", Undead or Alive (review here) hitting DVD this week, F/X guru Robert Kurtzman dropped us a line with an exclusive look as some gooey undead effects!
Just a bunch of badasses on bikes; that’s how I would describe the first batch of pics that just surfaced from Larry Bishop’s Hell Ride, which you may recall is being produced by Quentin Tarantino. Hell Ride is one of the high-profile titles premiering at Sundance this year, and the first four production stills can be found over at STYD, so get your motor clicking!
The other day we got an e-mail from someone with a simple request: “Will you check out my short film that I just completed?” Not that such a thing is terribly time-consuming or anything, but it did take me a few days to get to it. Sad, really, when it’s only 2:30 minute out of my life, but what can you do? I tend to be busy...
If Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem is as good as the Brothers Strause are making it sound like it will be we, as fans of monster movies, shall be forever in their debt. And welcome them with open arms to come back for a third movie.
