Exclusive Details and Images from The Sound

Published

on

You heard it from us first. We’ve been given an exclusive scoop on the sci-fi/horror film The Sound, which you can dig below…

From the Press Release:
The husband and wife filmmaking team comprised of director/writer/producer Barry W. Levy and producer/writer/actor Helenna Santos of Mighty Pharaoh Films is beginning the second week of production on the sci-fi feature film The Sound, co-produced by Jason Satterlund of Big Puddle Films.

The Sound follows a group of friends who venture deep into the woods only to be trapped by a mysterious unexplained sound.

Helenna Santos (The Dead Zone, American Reunion, BlackBoxTV) is joined by Ayanna Berkshire (Twilight, Grimm), Dani Lennon (The Love Witch, Malevolent, Bite Me), Madeline Merritt (Auteur, Army of the Damned), and Deborah Smith (Parker’s Anchor, At Your Own Risk), with the project’s writer/director Barry W. Levy (Scandal, Mad Men, The X-Files) also doing double duty acting in the project playing a supporting role.

“The Sound is a throwback to the sci-fi stories that I loved growing up. The Twilight Zone and Philip K. Dick have always been great influences of mine, and in writing this, I was also inspired by the years when I was acting on The X-Files and Millennium,” Levy stated. “The Sound is a nod to classic sci-fi storytelling and also a chance for us to reinvigorate the genre with a modern day twist.”

As Santos added, “I’ve been obsessed with sci-fi and horror my whole life, and I love a story that can combine both elements. What I’m especially excited about in this film is that it focuses on five diverse, independent women and passes the Bechdel Test with flying colors. It’s a pivotal time for female-driven stories.  Plus, what could be seen as a purely fictional tale actually taps into a very real, supernatural phenomenon of mysterious horn-like sounds occurring around the world today. The story also incorporates a lot of modern conspiracy theories circling the globe.”

The Sound is expected to have a mid-2017 release.

Did You Catch Chucky and King Kong’s Cameo in the Trailer For Steven Spielberg’s New Movie?

Published

on

You may remember a few months back there was a kick-ass trailer for Steven Spielberg’s new action-adventure flick Ready Player One that sported a quick glimpse of not only Freddy Krueger, but Stephen King’s Christine as well.

If those slick horror nods weren’t enough for you, today we have the new trailer for the film and guess who shows up? Yep, you guess it (from the headline) but Mr. Charles Lee Ray lends a helping knife to a battle, and the king of the jungle, Kong himself!

Very cool.

The cameos in the trailer is one of those “blink-and-you’ll-miss-it” things, but let’s hope he has a bit more screentime in the actual movie. By the way, is Ready Player One reminding anyone else of the “Imagination Land” episode(s) of “South Park”…?

You can check out the trailer below and then make sure to let us know what you think!

The film is directed by Steven Spielberg, based on the novel by Ernie Cline, and stars Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn, Simon Pegg, Mark Rylance, T.J. Miller, Hannah John-Kamen, and Letitia Wright.

Ready Player One hits theaters March 30, 2018.

Synopsis:

In the near future, outcast teenager Wade Watts escapes from his bleak surroundings by logging in to the OASIS, a globally networked virtual utopia where users can lead idyllic alternate lives. When the eccentric billionaire who created the OASIS dies, he offers up his vast fortune as the prize in an elaborate treasure hunt. Along with gamers from around the world, Wade joins the adventure, and quickly finds himself pitted against powerful corporate foes and other ruthless competitors who will do anything, in the oasis or the real world, to reach the treasure first.

Get Out Scores Golden Globe Nominations… as a Comedy

Published

on

It was a few weeks back now when we let you guys in on the rather puzzling news that the Golden Globes was considering Jordan Peele horror-thriller Get Out as a nominee…

As a comedy.

As strange as that news was, it seems it wasn’t a joke in its own right as Jordan Peele’s Get Out has scored a nomination for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy. The news broke this morning with the full release of this year’s nominations via EW.

You can check out the full list HERE.

One cool thing is that actor Daniel Kaluuya also scored a nod for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – again, Musical or Comedy. Sad and borderline ridiculous that Peele didn’t score nods as director OR screenwriter. For shame, Golden Globes.

What do you think of this news? Are you just glad Get Out got SOME love from this year’s Gloden Globes, or could you care less about awards season? Let us know below!

Synopsis:
Now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams), have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy and Dean. At first, Chris reads the family’s overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter’s interracial relationship; but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he could never have imagined.
