Exclusive: Danny Trejo, Luke Goss and Roel Reiné Talk Death Race 2

Published

on

It’s no secret I love action flicks and any project featuring Jason Statham is like catnip for me, which is why I loved the balls-out Paul W.S. Anderson remake Death Race when it hit theaters in 2008. And even though many love to hate on it because it was a remake of a cult classic, there’s no denying that there was something pretty badass about Statham’s character, Frankenstein.

Universal Pictures must have agreed as they put together one of the best direct-to-DVD action films I’ve ever experienced with Death Race 2, which hits DVD and Blu-ray shelves this week. Directed by Roel Reiné, Death Race 2 stars Luke Goss (Hellboy 2), Danny Trejo (Machete), Ving Rhames (Dawn of the Dead remake), Sean Bean (The Lord of the Rings), Tanit Phoenix (Lost Boys: The Thirst), and Robin Shou (Mortal Kombat).

Recently, Dread Central’s own Heather Wixson and Brian Smith had the opportunity to catch up with director Reiné and stars Goss and Trejo to talk about their experiences making the sequel/prequel as well as the future of the Death Race franchise and that if all goes well, fans may be enjoying more of Frankenstein’s exploits on the Death Race track in the near future.

Watch our video interviews below, and make sure to check out Death Race 2 (Blu-ray review here) when it’s released this Tuesday!

Synopsis
Death Race 2 takes place in the very near future, as the United States economy begins to decline and violent crime starts to spiral out of control. To contain the growing criminal population, a vast network of for-profit, private prisons springs up, creating a lawless subculture ruled by gangs, cold-blooded killers and sociopaths. The worst of these prisons is Terminal Island, where inmates fight each other in a highly rated televised death match, where there are no rules, and the winner is the one who survives the gladiator-style, no-holds-barred competition. Convicted cop-killer Carl Lucas (Luke Goss) arrives on the Island to serve his life sentence just as ruthlessly ambitious television personality September Jones evolves the death match into the ultimate reality show – Death Race. A brutal prison yard demolition derby that pits prisoners against each other in steel reinforced, heavily armed vehicles, Death Race offers the winner the ultimate prize: freedom — if he can survive to enjoy it.

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.
