Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem Director of Photography: “It’s Not Bright Enough”

Published

Aliens Vs. Predator: Requiem

In the wake of a weekend filled with loss, this story is at least finding a way to bring a smile to my face. StudioADI has once again put up a behind-the-scenes video for one of its projects; this time it’s Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem (review), a movie so dark lighting-wise that you can barely tell what’s going on nearly the entire time.

Check out the video below, and marvel at the frustration of the poor director of photography, Daniel Pearl, around the 1:45 mark. It’s palpable and sadly hilarious. Such a waste… so many good kills… so many cool creatures… all of it darkened to the point of ludicrousness in post-production.

Maybe one day someone over at Fox will release the version you could actually see. Don’t hold your breath, though. It’s probably never gonna happen. We leave you with the following video via StudioADI and the UNALTERED screencaps from my review.

Aliens Vs. Predator: Requiem

The Predator ship crashes to Earth. This scene happened in broad daylight. I kid you not.

Aliens Vs. Predator: Requiem

Dallas in Eddie’s car. Also broad daylight.

Aliens Vs. Predator: Requiem

There’s a facehugger and a victim in here somewhere. I swear

This is supposed to be the first close-up of the PredAlien.

According to the commentary there are supposed to be skinned Predators hanging in the background of this scene. Where?

Aliens Vs. Predator: Requiem

An Alien crawling on some ceiling pipes. It’s there. No really, it is.

The Predator in … I think it was supposed to be a tree.

Aliens Vs. Predator: Requiem

Behold the fight. Man, what action! Someone shoot me. Please. Thanks, I’ll wait.

The final battle or two guys in fetish suits?

Live-Action F.E.A.R. Adaptation Coming To Machinima

Published

on

Screenwriter Greg Russo has signed a deal with Machinima to pen an adaptation of the F.E.A.R. video game franchise, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. The article did not specify whether the adaptation would be in the form of a film or a series.

Russo, who is a lifelong gamer, will work with Machinima on creating and developing the F.E.A.R. adaptation, although we don’t know much else at this point. Machinima are a subsidiary of Warner Bros., and it probably won’t surprise you to learn that the F.E.A.R. franchise has also been owned by WB since 2009. In other words, Warner Bros. were bound to give us a live action adaptation of F.E.A.R. at one point, so we’re not too surprised by this development.

Russo, who is also writing the scripts for the Mortal Kombat and Resident Evil reboots, was quoted as saying the following:

“As a lifelong gamer, it’s an absolute honor to partner with Machinima, the preeminent provider of digital content to gamers worldwide. F.E.A.R. holds a special place in my heart. I’m excited to bring my personal passion to this and future projects and can’t wait to see where our partnership goes from here.”

An acronym for First Encounter Assault Recon, the F.E.A.R. games focus on an elite task force who fight to stop Alma Wade, a young girl with incredible psychic powers, from tearing apart the fabric of reality. Legendary film director John Carpenter served as story consultant on the third game, which we awarded a highly positive review back in the day. We’ll bring you more on Machinima’s adaptation when it becomes availalbe.

Short Film RETINA Will Strain Your Eyes

Published

on

We’ve been paying a lot of attention to the young filmmaker Alex J. Mann around these parts, because his projects are so unique and innovative that we can never wait to see what he’ll cook up next. Mann has just released his latest short, Retina, on his Space Oddity Films YouTube channel, and you can give it a watch below. It’s just under two minutes long and doesn’t contain any dialogue, but this is still a short which will keep you up at night.

Retina is described as being about “A young man’s fight to shut off his laptop camera turns deadly.” It was written and directed by Mann, and stars Dan J. Johnson in a singular performance. Retina also contains some gruesome images, and is most definitely not safe for work.
