Attack the Block
For everyone who has been complaining about the Oscars, it's time to announce the nominees for the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films' 38th Annual Saturn Awards. Most of these names should definitely help make you feel better about things!
We've heard of movie marathons that last all day…10-, 12-hour events, but this is ridiculous! The Boston Sci-Fi Festival runs from February 10-20, but the really cool thing for fans is The 'Thon, the 24-hour film festival that caps off the event. Now that's a lot of sci-fi!
The 2011 Sitges Film Festival has concluded its competition portion and announced awards in more categories than we've seen at any other fest. The biggest winners are Kevin Smith's Red State and Joe Cornish's Attack the Block, but several other films we've been closely watching here on Dread scored victories as well, including Kill List, Livid, The Divide, The Woman, Bellflower, Hell, and Detention.
In just a couple of weeks the phenomenal Attack the Block will be hitting Blu-ray and DVD courtesy of Sony, but the good news doesn't stop there. There are some interesting rumblings going on right now. Read on for the details.
The dead are coming. That's right, "The Walking Dead" will be kicking off Season 2 this Sunday, October 16, for a big ol' 13 episode run. And what better way to prepare for the event than to attend "The Walking Dead" panel at New York Comic Con this Saturday!
New York Comic Con 2011: Horror in the Halls of the Javits Center: The Walking Dead, Ghost Rider, Resident Evil, and More!
By this time next week the 2011 New York Comic Con will be wrapping up for another year, but let's not get too far ahead of ourselves -- there are panels to see and toys to buy first! Here's a look at the horror highlights along with a few other genre-related appearances that should be of interest to our readers.
While the crapfest known as Creature consumed 1,500 screens with about 15 viewers per, the cult hit Attack the Block barely saw the light of day. Heartbreaking when you think about it. Either way this October that wrong will be set right as the flick is finally coming home.
The 2011 Fantasia International Film Festival has come to an end and as usual was a rousing success with more than 100,000 audience members. In addition 150 international directors, actors, and producers presented their films at the fest. Read on for the wrap-up and winners from this year's various competitions.
It was high noon at the box office this weekend as Cowboys & Aliens and The Smurfs drew their pistols on one another. So which movie managed to wrangle the most moolah?
Since Attack The Block isn't getting as much attention as the other much louder alien invasion movie opening this weekend, we put together this nifty package of past coverage to help even the odds.
We, like many of you, woke up today and immediately went looking for theatres showing Attack the Block. The good news? We found the listings. The bad? It's only playing at eight theatres across the U.S. (and Canada) with the possibility of going wider. Le sigh.
The lion's share of this weekend's box office haul is most likely going to go to Captain America, Cowboys & Aliens, and to a certain extent The Smurfs, but if it's near you, we recommend going to see Attack the Block instead.
