on

If you missed the latest version of Flatliners when it played in theaters, you will soon to be able to catch up with it on home video. To give you an idea of what’s to come, we have the film’s first home video details and artwork for you.

Flatliners comes to digital platforms on December 12 and December 26 on Blu-ray and DVD formats.

From the Press Release:
Academy Award nominee Ellen Page (Best Actress, Juno, 2007), Diego Luna (Rogue One), and Nina Dobrev (“The Vampire Diaries”) star in the contemporary take on the 90’s fan favorite FLATLINERS, debuting on Digital December 12 and on Blu-ray and DVD December 26 from 
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. The supernatural thriller follows five medical students obsessed with what lies beyond the confines of life. They embark on a daring experiment: By stopping their hearts for short periods, each triggers a near-death experience – giving them a firsthand account of the afterlife. Also experiencing the chilling consequences of exploring the one line that should never be crossed are James Norton (“War & Peace”), 
Kiersey Clemons (Justice League), and Kiefer Sutherland (the original Flatliners).

The bonus content for FLATLINERS on Digital, Blu-ray, and DVD includes two behind-the-scenes featurettes. 
“Just What the Doctor Ordered” catches the cast and crew reflecting on working with director Niels Arden Oplev (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2009), Dead Man Down), along with an interview from Niels on his directing style and vision. In “The Ultimate Question,” the cast and crew decide whether or not they would flatline if they could and offer the revealing reasons behind their decisions.

The FLATLINERS Digital and Blu-ray releases are loaded with additional exclusive bonus material, including deleted and extended scenes, plus two more behind-the-scenes featurettes. The featurette “Reviving a Cult Classic” explores the differences in tone, concepts, and creative design from the original film and the update, featuring comments from producer and film icon Michael Douglas, while in “Making the Rounds” the cast shares what intrigued them most about their characters, their experiences on the set, and their favorite film moments.

Directed by Niels Arden Oplev with a story by Peter Filardi and a screenplay by Ben Ripley, FLATLINERS was produced by Laurence Mark, Michael Douglas, and Peter Safran and executive produced by Michael Bederman, Robert Mitas, David Blackman, Brian Oliver, and Hassan Taher.

Synopsis:
Five medical students, hoping to gain insight into the mystery of what lies beyond the confines of life, embark on a daring and dangerous experiment.

Netflix’s The Cloverfield Paradox Scored 2.8 Million Viewers in First Three Days

Published

on

A few weeks back we brought you a news story in which Netflix shelled out a whopping $50 million for the streaming rights to The Cloverfield Paradox.

If you are like me, then you’ve been wondering how that investment is paying out for the streaming giant in the wake of the resounding “thud” the film made after it hit late on Super Bowl Sunday.

Well, it seems the movie did pretty good… but nothing special (which is the general consensus to the film itself) and scored 2.8 million viewers in the first 3 days of release.

These numbers come to us from Variety, who reports that, while 2.8 million is no small number, when compared to the 11 million viewers that David Ayers’ Bright starring Will Smith pulled in late last year, The Cloverfield Paradox pales in comparison. But is it fair to compare The Cloverfield Paradox to Bright? Shrugs.

What do you think? Let us know below!

The film is directed by Julius Onah from a screenplay by Oren Uziel and Doug Jung and stars David Oyelowo, Ziyi Zhang, Elizabeth Debicki, Daniel Brühl, and Chris O’Dowd.

The film is now streaming on Netflix.

Synopsis:

Astronauts must fight for their lives after making a terrifying discovery in outer space.

Toy Fair 2018: Funko’s Savage World Turns Horror Icons Into Masters of the Universe Characters

Published

on

Overview

What would happen if classic horror icons existed within the world of the Masters of the Universe franchise? That’s a question Funko have answered with their new ‘Savage World’ line of action figures, which depicts horror characters including Leatherface, Michael Myers, Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, and Pinhead as they would look had they been birthed into the world of Castle Grayskull alongside He-Man and Skeletor. Funko have given us some pretty weird shit over the years, but this is on a whole other level.

Thanks to Bloody Disgusting, Preternia, Popvinyls.com, and the Twitter account @FakeEyes22, we are able to share some images of these testosterone-fueled slasher figures, which were on display at the New York Toy Fair. There’s currently no word on when these musclebound monstrosities will be hitting stores, but I’m willing to bet that one look at the gallery below will instantly have you counting your change.

Death Confirmed to Be Part of Bill & Ted 3

Published

on

Ingmar Bergman’s The Seventh Seal introduced the world to a version of death that has since become iconic. A dark force, the Grim Reaper is willing to give people a chance to reclaim their souls should they best it in a game. While this incarnation is truly magnificent, I believe that many people will recognize the parody version that William Sadler brought to life in Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, the 1991 sequel that saw Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves’ characters die and face the awkward spirit.

Nearly three decades later, fans of the Bill & Ted series are awaiting a third film, which has been known to be in the works for quite a while. Dubbed Bill & Ted Face the Music, it’s been written by Ed Solomon (Men in Black), who recently took to Twitter to confirm that the scythe-wielding ghoul is in the film and that he hopes William Sadler reprises the role! Solomon is also the man responsible for writing the first two films as well as the animated series “Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventures” and the 1991 video game Bill & Ted’s Excellent Video Game Adventure.

At this point, it’s all just speculation as to if a third film will ever be made. However, nearly every single party involved is ready to make this a reality, so all it needs is a studio to pony up the money!
