It's been several months since we've gotten an update from filmmaker Sonny Fernandez regarding his apocalyptic epic The Last Battleground, but the word came down today that the flick is now available on DVD from Amazon.
The whole time I watched Legion, pretty much the only thing I could think about was how great Trembles' MPP of the flick was going to be. The film is rife with some awesomely cheesy lines that are just begging for the Trembles treatment, and this week he delivers the goods.
On Tuesday, February 2nd, Viz Media's new series Biomega will debut. The sci-fi/horror epic is both written and illustrated by Tsutomu Nihei.
If you were one of the many people who saw Scott Stewart's Legion over the weekend (and there must have been a lot of you since the film came in second in the box office rankings with an estimated $18.2 million), then you'll no doubt be interested in the following message we received from The Foywonder:
Back in March Paramount execs indicated they wanted to "fast track" their comic-book-to-film adaptation of Damn Nation, and now some nine months later the project finally has a writing team: Ashley Edward Miller and Zack Stentz.
Microbudget filmmaker Sonny Fernandez has been keeping us all posted about the progress on his apocalyptic epic The Last Battleground, a film that appears very low on budget but very high in ambition. Now he's sharing the final trailer for his magnum opus.
Just in case there aren't enough book-to-screen adaptations for us to keep track of already, news of another came today: Damn Nation, which was published by Dark Horse Comics in 2005. It was written by Andrew Cosby with artwork by Jason Shawn Alexander.
Below you can see the international poster for The Horsemen, one of the first original products of Platinum Dunes. For whatever reason it’s getting no love from its U.S. distributor, Rogue Pictures, so we still have no idea when it’ll be out here, but the Italians are all over it!
What the hell is From Parts Unknown? It’s an indie film from Australia we first told you about back in March and haven’t mentioned since. Don’t you keep up on anything? Sheesh.
One can’t help but wonder about the myriad of problems Screen Gems has with the upcoming Dennis Quaid apocalypse movie Legion. The other day it was announced the film wouldn’t see the light of projectors until January 22nd, 2010, even though it's been done for months. Co-star Yancey Arias doesn’t feel there’s anything wrong with it at all, however.
