Sharktopus Plot Details and Dinoshark Image Revealed!

Published

on

Want to know what the titular monster of Roger Corman’s Dinoshark looks like? Want to know how and why a shark gets genetically crossed with an octopus in Corman’s forthcoming Sharktopus? Don’t deny it. You know you do. Just read on.

The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed blog has two major earth-shattering exclusives regarding the future of Roger Corman-produced monster moviemaking. The world has been buzzing ever since news broke that Roger Corman and Syfy were colluding to gift the world with a motion picture entitled Sharktopus. How does such an unlikely mutant come about?

“The U.S. Navy has commissioned a group called Blue Water to genetically engineer a half-shark, half-octopus to help combat Somali pirate ships. Then things go wrong.”

Makes perfect sense, doesn’t it? That’s the point, as Corman explains.

“It’s fairly difficult to believe, but we only ask the audience to accept this one thing,” he said. “After that, we take great care that everything else is logical from then on and is something that could happen.”

If there was one thing that went through my mind while watching Roger Corman’s Dinocroc, Supergator, and will assuredly be occupying my train of thought as I watch Dinocroc vs. Supergator when it debuts later this year, it is that this is something that could happen. This is why we love Roger Corman.

Another reason to love Roger Corman: Dinoshark. Premiering on Syfy the evening of March 13th, basically Dinocroc with flippers, Dinoshark begins with the prehistoric predator hatching from an egg thawed out from a melting glacier, and then it’s off to sunny Puerta Vallarta, Mexico for some hot jaws-on-human action.

With that said, courtesy of THR, ladies and gentlemen, say hello to Dinoshark.

Published

on

I don’t know about you but I’m a massive fan of the Alien film series. Oh, the hell with it. Let’s cut the bull. You are too.

Anyhow, considering both of us are massive fans of the Alien films, I wanted to make sure you were aware that Titan Books has an all-new original Alien novel on the way.

It’s called “Alien: The Cold Forge” and the 320-page paperback is written by Alex White (author of the “Salvagers” series) and will be hitting the public on April 24, 2018.

You can check out the novel’s synopsis below and its current cover art to the right. Just click the image for a higher-res version.

I know I will be attempting to score a copy of the novel asap, but what about you? Are you interested in this original novel? Let us know below!

Again, “Alien: The Cold Forge” hits April 24, 2018.

PRE-ORDER HERE!

Synopsis:

A dramatic new Alien novel, as Weyland-Yutani seeks to recover from the failure of Hadley’s Hope, and successfully weaponize the Xenomorphs.

With the failure of the Hadley’s Hope, Weyland-Yutani has suffered a devastating defeat–the loss of the Aliens. Yet there’s a reason the company rose to the top, and they have a redundancy already in place. Remote station RB-323 abruptly becomes their greatest hope for weaponizing the Xenomorph, but there’s a spy aboard–someone who doesn’t necessarily act in the company’s best interests. If discovered, this person may have no choice but to destroy RB-323… and everyone on board. That is, if the Xenomorphs don’t do the job first.

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost Are Truth Seekers Playing by Slaughterhouse Rulez

Published

on

One of our favorite pairings of stars from the last twenty years is no doubt that of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. Their chemistry is undeniable, and if you didn’t get enough of it in “Spaced,” Shawn of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, The World’s End, and Paul, you’re about to get a bellyful of it on both big and small screens.

Variety is reporting that Frost and Pegg will be starring in “Truth Seekers,” a half-hour comedy-horror TV show about a three-person paranormal investigation team.

According to the site, each installment of “Truth Seekers” will focus on a paranormal incident, a setup with clear monster-of-the-week potential. “Each episode is going to be an adventure, a potential haunting or something,” Pegg says. “It’ll start as a very parochial idea, a very small business venture for these people, but it will expand as the series goes on to be something far more global. It’s a language everyone understands, the mystery of the unknown. Shaun of the Dead was a very parochial story set in North London, and somehow it managed to get this global reach because everyone understands the language of zombie movies.

That’s not all, though… the pair are also working on the feature film Slaughterhouse Rulez, a horror-comedy now in post-production. Directed by Crispian Mills and set in a well-to-do public school, the movie is “very satirical, very much about the U.K. selling itself off,” Pegg says. “It’s about fracking as well, and that unleashes some awful subterranean demon.

Both of these projects will be released under their Stolen Picture shingle. Stay tuned, kids! More as we get it!
