Controversial New Piranha 3D TV Spot

Published

on

Ah, “>Piranha 3D (review here)! You warm our hearts with your promises of boobs and blood. Billed the summer movie that is not family friendly, the flick is causing quite a buzz. The sliver of trashy good fun recently submitted a TV spot to various networks to run this weekend, but the powers-that-be denied the content, citing it as too gory for TV. Of course, we have it for you here!

So why was it rejected? Let’s take a look at the network notes!

CW COMMENTS:

Make sure the beer bottle in guy’s hand is generic or paint over.

Please cover up more of the breast area of the woman on left who comes up out of the water with the other girl.

Need to lose the shot of woman in thong doing dry humping/grinding motion on top of the other girl with thong. Obviously, both of these women’s naked-thonged butts are facing the camera and as I would say to add coverage to their butts, we just need to lose this shot all together. Now, this shot is in super low res so I don’t have great detail on the white t-shirted girls, but just in case… for the woman facing the camera, we need to make sure we cannot see any nipple protrusion, that this t-shirt is NOT “wet” or that there is any breast jiggling.

Please confirm what guy screams out “Are you ready for_____.” Please confirm what he says here.

Please make sure girls on stage have enough coverage on their butts (like the one to the far right as we do see the side of her).

We need to darken ALL of the blood shown in spot. This includes on the woman’s arm in the black bathing suit on boat.

Please make sure this woman’s boobs are not coming out of her top. Please lose shot of blood splattering on woman and make sure to darken blood (or remove) from guy at end who gets thrown out of boat by piranha.

MTV COMMENTS:

Comments to specific frames:

At 00:11 – Please audio drop “titty.”

FOX COMMENTS:

Please lose “titties,” and “Pissed.”

Comments to specific frames:

At 00:08 – please crop this shot or cover the woman’s breasts more in this shot. (scene with the 2 woman coming up to the surface from underwater)

At 00:09 – Please lose this shot (woman in thong on all fours with other woman behind her in grinding motion)

At 00:11 – If, in this shot in higher definition, we can see any of the women’s nipples through their shirts, this shot will be problematic. (close-up of woman’s breast area in wet t-shirt)

At 00:15 – please lose this shot, crop it or provide more coverage on the woman’s rear end on the far right. (the scene with women in white t-shirts on stage)

At 00:24 – Please lose this shot (woman in black ‘peace’ bikini with blood splattered on her body & face)

Piranha 3D is in theatres NOW!

Synopsis
Jaws… lots and lots of jaws. From acclaimed director Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes) comes the new action thriller PIRANHA 3D, in the latest eye-popping 3D technology. A new type of terror is about to be cut loose on beautiful Lake Victoria. After a sudden underwater tremor sets free scores of the prehistoric man-eating fish, an unlikely group of strangers must band together to stop themselves from becoming fish food for the area’s new razor-toothed residents. But our heroine (Elisabeth Shue) is seriously outnumbered, and with only one chance to save the lake and her family from totally being devoured, she must risk everything to destroy the aquatic carnivores herself.

Read Darren Aronofsky’s Screenplay for mother!

Published

on

This past year we saw the release of writer-director Darren Aronofsky’s mother! (review) a film that was controversial, to say the least. Some loved it, others loathed it.

And speaking of mother!, Aronofsky has said before that he wrote the movie in a mere 5 days (!) and today we have the film’s screenplay for you to download. Paramount released it officially a few weeks back and I say it’s worth the download and the read.

Especially if you fancy yourself as a screenwriter, like me.

What I found most interesting about Aronofsky’s script is that he forgoes typical sluglines. Instead, he jumps from location to location, without any uses of INT./EXT. or DAY/NIGHT. For instance, instead of writing:

INT. HOUSE – LIVING ROOM – DAY, he just writes: LIVING ROOM.

Interesting approach.

You can download the screenplay for mother! right here.

After giving the script a read through, hit me up in the comments below and let’s start a dialogue about the screenplay, the format, the structure, and the finished film in general if you’d like. I’m big into the craft of screenwriting so let’s talk about it!

The film is written & directed by Darren Aronofsky and stars Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem, Michelle Pfeiffer, Brian Gleeson, Domhnall Gleeson, and Ed Harris.

mother! hits Digital HD Dec. 5 and 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray Combo Packs Dec. 19.

PRE-ORDER HERE

Synopsis:

A couple’s relationship is tested when uninvited guests arrive at their home, disrupting their tranquil existence. From filmmaker Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan, Requiem for a Dream), mother! stars Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem, Ed Harris and Michelle Pfeiffer in this riveting psychological thriller about love, devotion and sacrifice.’.

Bigfoot Horror Movie Cherokee Creek Gets Trailer and Poster

Published

on

I have always said that the last movie monster out there that has yet to get a quality flag-ship flick is Bigfoot. Everyone in the world knows Bigfoot (right?) so why the hell isn’t there a “Holy Grail” movie centered around the big, hairy sumbitch?

Don’t get me wrong, there have been a few quality motion pictures based on the big guy including Bobcat Goldthwait’s Willow Creek and Edwardo Sanchez’s Exists. But neither of those films blew the roof off the movie-going public.

Maybe Cherokee Creek will finally do the trick?

We’ll have to wait and see. But until the film has an official release date we can always take a look at the film’s trailer and poster – both of which you will find below.

Give them a look and then make sure to let us know what you think has been the best Bigfoot movie thus far (Harry and the Hendersons?) in the comments below!

The film is written and directed by Todd Jenkins and stars Billy Blair, Todd Jenkins, Justin Armstrong, Terry Dale Parks, Ray Hosack, Jeff Swearingen, Justin Duncan, CG Lewis, Nellie Sciutto, Steve Mokate, Jason P. Kendall, Anthony Phoenix, James Yeager, Elizabeth Jenkins, and Jinx Jenkins.

Synopsis:

A bachelor party in the woods gets crashed by the ultimate party animal.

Edward James Olmos Says Shane Black’s The Predator is Really Funny, Yet Deadly

Published

on

When we first heard that writer-director Shane Black (Kiss, Kiss, Bang, Band, The Nice Guys) and his main collaborator Fred Dekker (Night of the Creeps, The Monster Squad) were going to be taking on a big-budget reboot/sequel of Predator we were excited as hell. As we’re sure you were as well.

We knew the film was going to be, at least in some aspects, the funniest Predator film we have seen thus far. I mean with Black and Dekker penning the script how could it NOT?

But just how funny will The Predator be?

Well, if we are to believe ScienceFiction.com and co-star Edward James Olmos, the movie is going to be hilarious… yet still deadly.

The Blade Runner actor was recently out and about promoting the new Disney film Coco, and dropped some all-new info on Shane Black’s The Predator.

“Oh, my goodness. That’s an interesting story,” Edward James Olmos told the site. “I haven’t seen any of it, but it’s gonna be funny. The kids in the thing. Yeah, the humor. Huge. Huge. I mean I was in shock, because, you know this is a really intense franchise, and it still is. Don’t get me wrong. You’re gonna be inside of it. But the characters are… what he did — Shane is an incredibly gifted writer, and he’s a great director, and so he ended up getting an incredible ensemble, and when I reached it they had already been filming for three months so they were a unit. So I jump in as the General and there were some moments where I just had to laugh in the scene and I couldn’t be laughing in the scene. ‘I’m sorry guys. Really, I’m sorry.'”

“Keegan (Michael Key) and Thomas Jane, they’re paired off in groups of three groups,” he continues. “Six guys. The way they work, they were all post-traumatic stress disorder guys who were inside of an insane asylum. A mental hospital. Then they put the lead character in there to kind of make them disappear, because they want them kind of out of the picture. And so he gets involved and then boom, the world goes crazy and these kids are released. But out of a freaky incident with some of the Predators. It’s crazy. It’s so crazy. I’m excited for it, and I don’t know what’s gonna happen. I got a good feeling about it. I mean if it’s really funny, and yet deadly like Predator is.”

I’m not surprised at all that the film is going to be funny, and the thought of a humorous Predator movie doesn’t worry me in the slightest either. I have utter faith that Black and Dekker will give us one of the best Predator films in the franchise.

What do you think? Let us know below!

The Predator stars Thomas Jane, Edward James Olmos, Sterling K. Brown, Trevante Rhodes, Boyd Holbrook, Jacob Tremblay, Olivia Munn, Alfie Allen, Yvonne Strahovski, Augusto Aguilera, and Keegan-Michael Key.

Black is directing from a script by Fred Dekker. John Davis, Joel Silver, and Lawrence Gordon — who produced the original — are producing.

The Predator comes out August 3, 2018.
