#SDCC16: 20th Century Fox TV Bringing The Exorcist, Salem, Scream Queens, and Rocky Horror to the Show!

Published

on

The movie side of 20th Century Fox is sitting out this year’s San Diego Comic-Con due to concerns over piracy of any footage that might air during the event, but the TV side will be represented in full force.  Along with new series “The Exorcist” and its reboot of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, the company is bringing a few other horror-related shows to the 2016 SDCC, including one of our favorites: “Salem.”

Read on for the details.

Per Deadline, 20th Century Fox TV is hosting a screening of Episode 1 of its psychological TV thriller “The Exorcist” with stars Alfonso Herrera, Ben Daniels, and Geena Davis and writer/producer Jeremy Slater in attendance. Inspired by the Warner Bros. feature, “The Exorcist” follows two very different priests tackling one family’s case of demonic possession.

There will also be a “first look” at the TV version of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, which premieres in October, with cast members Christina Milian, Victoria Justice, Ryan McCarten, Laverne Cox, Reeve Carney, and Staz Nair plus exec producers Lou Adler, Gail Berman, and Kenny Ortega.

Fans of “Salem” will see a tease of Season 3 with stars Shane West, Janet Montgomery, Seth Gabel, Iddo Goldberg, and Elise Eberle plus EPs Brannon Braga and Adam Simon.

This year also marks the final SDCC Q&A for “Bones” with Emily Deschanel, David Boreanaz, TJ Thyne, Michaela Conlin, Tamara Taylor, John Boyd and EPs Jonathan Collier and Michael Peterson.

Lastly, we’ll hear more about “Scream Queens” Season 2 from stars Jamie Lee Curtis, Emma Roberts, Lea Michele, and more.

SDCC 2016 runs July 21st-24th (Preview Night is July 20th) at the San Diego Convention Center. Expect LOTS more soon!

Published

“Game over, man. Game over!”

I’m not one for playing video games but even I will have to check out this new first-person shooter set in the Alien universe currently in the works at FoxNext Games.

This new and untitled game is the first original Alien-inspired game since “Alien: Isolation” and Cold Iron Studios is developing the game after recently being acquired by Fox (and now Disney).

“Cold Iron Studios has amazing design, craftsmanship, and development talent that we are excited to welcome at FoxNext Games as we pursue our goal to build a multi-platform, multi-genre portfolio of great games,” said FoxNext Games president Aaron Loeb. “I am a personal fan of Cold Iron’s previous work and all of us at FoxNext Games are thrilled to be working with them as they create an action-packed persistent world, steeped in the mysteries of this beloved Alien universe.”

“We believe in FoxNext’s vision and we are thrilled about the opportunity to explore an amazing and rich universe,” said Cold Iron CEO Craig Zinkievich. “Our background in building online worlds and taking established franchises to the next level in interactive entertainment is a precise fit with our product roadmap ahead.”

Poster Debut: Nicolas Pesce’s Piercing Starring Mia Wasikowska and Christopher Abbott

Published

on

One of the films that I’m most interested in hearing the feedback about during this year’s Sundance film festival is director Nicolas Pesce’s psychological horror-comedy Piercing.

Not only did Pesce’s last flick The Eyes of My Mother impress the hell out of me but his new film boasts a killer premise and cast including Mia Wasikowska (Stoker) and Christopher Abbott (It Comes at Night).

The movie will be premiering at Sundance this weekend and today we have the film’s poster to share with you guys. You can click on the poster to the right for a higher-res version.

After checking it out let us know what you think!

Piercing is based on the critically acclaimed cult novel by Ryu Murakami and directed by Nicolas Pesce (The Eyes of My Mother) and stars Mia Wasikowska (Stoker) and Christopher Abbott (It Comes at Night).

The film hosts its World Premiere at the Sundance Film Festival Saturday, January 20th.

Synopsis:

Reed (Christopher Abbott) is going on a business trip. He kisses his wife and infant son goodbye, but in lieu of a suitcase filled with clothes, he’s packed a toothbrush and a murder kit. Everything is meticulously planned: check into a hotel and kill an unsuspecting victim. Only then will he rid himself of his devious impulses and continue to be a good husband and father. But Reed gets more than he bargained for with Jackie (Mia Wasikowska), an alluring call girl who arrives at his room. First, they relax and get in the mood, but when there’s an unexpected disruption, the balance of control begins to sway back and forth between the two. Is he seeing things? Who’s playing whom? Before the night is over, a feverish nightmare will unfold, and Reed and Jackie will seal their bond in blood.
