Sasquatch Assault Trailer and Future Synthetic Monsters

Published

Sasquatch Assault Trailer and Future Synthetic MonstersWhat do you get when you cross Assault on Precinct 13 with a Bigfoot movie? Something that might look a little like Sasquatch Assault. The first trailer for this action-packed piece of Sasquatchploitation has arrived, and it looks positively tremendous.

When a merciless bear poacher is caught and arrested deep in the woods of a state park, he and his truck are taken to a neglected precinct in the heart of a dying city. Unbeknownst to the authorities, the impounded truck holds a deadly cargo in the form of the legendary Sasquatch. Now, stuck in an unfamiliar world, the creature will let nothing and no one stop it from coming face-to-face with the unscrupulous man who ruthlessly ripped it from its environment. Taking an inventive and action packed approach, “Sasquatch Assault” breaths new and exciting life into the immortal legend of Bigfoot.

Fangoria scored the exclusive first trailer for Sasquatch Assault from the fine folks at Synthetic Cinema International, and their opus looks to be shaping up to be the most entertaining rampaging Bigfoot flick since Abominable. If there is anything negative for me to say, it would be that there might be a risk of it getting a little too stupid for its own good, which was a major problem I had with Synthetic’s previous creature feature Werewolf: The Devil’s Hound (review). That and for some reason their Bigfoot reminds in some ways of “Sweetums” from the Muppets.

Regardless, this is a good trailer, and I have my fingers crossed that it delivers. Give the trailer a look. It’s definitely worth your time.

Synthetic Cinema producer and Sasquatch Assault director Andrew Gernhard also told Fango of two more monster movies in the works they intend to co-produce with India’s Vijaya Cine.

The first will be Opponent, an “insane, bizarre, and violent” tale of a heavily armed alien that lands in a junkyard, leading the owner to offer a $100,000 bounty to whoever can kill it and ends up getting more than she bargained for when every wacko with a weapon shows up to collect.

Director and digital FX artist Colin Theys, who helmed Synthetic’s other yet-to-be-released monster movie, Banshee!!!, told Fango to look at it as a reversal on the standard kids trapped in a cabin with a monster trying to get them. “What if the monster is trapped in the cabin and the kids are trying to get to it?” Theys goes on to promise extreme mayhem of near Troma-esque proportions. “It’s going to have an infectious energy that’ll keep audiences shouting ‘What?!!’ at the TV with every twist and turn. Ever seen a mechanical shark that swims under the sand? A machine-gun-wielding zombie priest? Or how about an entire junior karate class attacking an 8-foot tall alien?

Less over-the-top will be Werewolf: Curse of the Jersey Devil, described as a “Buffy-esque” college-based creature feature that pits vampire and lycanthrope siblings against a girl who is actually the legendary Jersey Devil.

Something tells me we’re going to be hearing a lot more about Synthetic Cinema International productions in the future. And maybe the next time someone involved with one of their productions sends me an email, my responses to their mailbox won’t bounce.

Charlie Heaton: The New Mutants is Full-Fledged Horror

Published

on

I this point I often wonder if FOX is just playing a prank on all of us and Josh Boone’s The New Mutants is just going to keep getting pushed back for the rest of time. Maybe it’s just a fake trailer ala Grindhouse?

I’m kidding (I hope) but all the same we’ll keep reporting on The New Mutants news if the getting is good. So with that in mind, today we have an update on the film via co-star Charlie Heaton (Stranger Things).

It’s basically about these mutants in a facility for damaged mutants,” Heaton told EW. “It’s a story about these characters coming to grips with who they are and it’s a horror X-Men movie, which we haven’t seen before. I feel like, for an X-Men movie, yeah, I think they’re going full-fledged horror. Without saying too much — I really don’t want to give away too much what it’s about, it’s very under wraps — but it is, in terms of anything we’ve seen in the X-Men world, it definitely is a horror film. It’s scarier than anything we’ve seen in that genre.”

The film is directed by Josh Boone and stars Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch), Maisie Williams (“Game of Thrones”), Charlie Heaton (“Stanger Things”), and Alice Braga (City of God). The film is set to hit August 2, 2019 (for now).

Synopsis:

A diverse cadre of teens are learning to cope with their superpowers. These new mutants find themselves held in a secret facility against their will and must battle the dangers of their powers, as well as the sins of their past.

Jurassic World 2 UK Poster Just Like US Poster But With Key Difference

Published

on

Earlier this week we shared with you guys a new poster for the upcoming sequel to Jurassic World that let us all know that “The Park is Gone.” And today we have the film’s U.K. poster… which is basically the same exact poster…

That said, this U.K. poster ditches the “The Park is Gone” tagline in favor of the old stand-by tag “Life Finds a Way” and subs in the U.S. release date of June 22 for the U.K.’s earlier release date of June 6.

Why is the U.K. getting Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom two weeks earlier than the U.S.? I guess they’re bigger fans of the franchise? Shrugs.

You can check out the new UK poster to the right and the badass new teaser below. After looking through all that stuff, make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is directed by J.A. Bayona (The Impossible) from a script written by Trevorrow, and Derek Connolly. The film stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, James Cromwell, Ted Levine, Justice Smith, Geraldine Chaplin, Daniella Pineda, Toby Jones, Rafe Spall, and Isabella Sermon, while BD Wong and Jeff Goldblum reprise their roles from prior films. Look for it in U.K. theaters on June 6, 2018.

Synopsis:

It’s been four years since theme park and luxury resort Jurassic World was destroyed by dinosaurs out of containment. Isla Nublar now sits abandoned by humans while the surviving dinosaurs fend for themselves in the jungles. When the island’s dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event. Owen is driven to find Blue, his lead raptor who’s still missing in the wild, and Claire has grown a respect for these creatures she now makes her mission.

Arriving on the unstable island as lava begins raining down, their expedition uncovers a conspiracy that could return our entire planet to a perilous order not seen since prehistoric times.

With all of the wonder, adventure, and thrills synonymous with one of the most popular and successful series in cinema history, this all-new motion-picture event sees the return of favorite characters and dinosaurs—along with new breeds more awe-inspiring and terrifying than ever before. Welcome to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

Will There Be a Second Season of Netflix’s Lost in Space?

Published

on

Netflix’s Lost in Space reboot series began streaming this past Friday and while there hasn’t been an official green light given, there is already talk about a possible second season. In fact, co-creators Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama recently sat down with IndieWire and revealed that they’re already working on Season 2.

We are working on scripts and hoping that, if we get a green light, we’re ready to go,” Sazama said. “We’ve had a lot of thoughts about it, and hopefully, if everyone watches it, we’ll get to see more adventures of the Robinsons, because we do have some crazy stuff planned out that we really hope we get to film.”

Yeah, Season 2 is wild, so hopefully it can happen,” Sharpless adds. “There’s obviously a deep backstory of the robot and the causality of what caused this whole world to happen. And we’ve definitely figured that part out. We didn’t want this show to be a really mythology-heavy show, even though I love them.”

He continues: “We definitely have figured out some really fun stuff that I think, if we were so fortunate for the show to go more than one season, I think people would really enjoy and be interested in the science fiction world that we want to build.”

Have you been watching Netflix’s Lost in Space? What do you think? Make sure to let us know what you think in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

The Netflix original series stars Toby Stephens as John Robinson, Molly Parker as Maureen Robinson, Taylor Russell as Judy, Mina Sudwall as Penny, Dr. Smith played by Parker Posey, Don West is played by Ignacio Serricchio, and Max Jenkins as Will Robinson.

The series is produced by Legendary Television and written by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless. Zack Estrin serves as showrunner. The three are executive producers alongside Synthesis Entertainment’s Kevin Burns and Jon Jashni with Neil Marshall and Marc Helwig. The original series was created by Irwin Allen. Season one is now streaming on Netflix.
