Strap In and Ride This Epic Aliens Roller Coaster From the Comfort of Your Own Couch

Published

on

Quite possibly one of the greatest sequels of all time, James Cameron’s Aliens is a thrilling action-infused sci-fi/horror masterpiece. Featuring explosive action, fantastic characters, a bombastic score (courtesy of James Horner), and terrifying Xenomorphs, it has rightfully earned its place as a pinnacle of cinematic wonder. To think, it came out nearly 32 years ago!

The franchise is currently in the midst of a love it/hate it sentiment thanks to Prometheus and Alien: Covenant, both films which expand on the Weyland/Yutani universe while also attempting to explain the origins of the Xenomorphs themselves. While these films are hit-or-miss with fans and critics alike, that doesn’t change the love of the original films, the ones that started them all.

To that point, allow me to introduce you to YouTuber Hin Nya, who has created an Aliens-themed roller coaster ride in the video game Planet Coaster. Running at over 10-minutes long, the ride takes viewers from the USS Sulaco through the atmosphere of LV-426 into the terraforming colony Hadley’s Hope and into the depths of the Xenomorph hive.

Let me put it to you like this: were this a real ride, I would make it a point to go on a yearly basis to whatever theme park had it. Hin Nya captures the thrill of Aliens with delightful nods and homages, such as the turret scene in the extended edition of the film, Mother’s blindingly white computer room, Horner’s score echoing through the metallic halls, and even a visit from the Alien Queen herself!

My recommendation is to full screen this, put on some headphones (or blast the volume through a sound system), and enjoy the ride!

PG-13 or R? The Strangers: Prey at Night Gets Official MPAA Rating

Published

on

Earlier this week we let you guys know that there is a killer The Strangers: Prey at Night fan art competition going on and you can read all the details on that right HERE.

But today we have some cool (if expected) news that The Strangers: Prey At Night hs officially received an R-rating from the MPAA.

The sequel has been rated R for “horror violence and terror throughout, and for language” and I think that makes about as much sense as we could have expected.

For those who are interested in such bits of trivia, the original The Strangers was rated R for “violence/terror and language” so there you go! Impress your friends with MPAA trivia.

Would The Strangers: Prey at Night getting a PG-13 have affected your enthusiasm for the upcoming film? Let us know below!

The Stranger: Prey at Night is directed by Johannes Roberts (47 Meters Down) from a script by Bryan Bertino and Ben Ketai. It stars Martin Henderson, Christina Hendricks, Bailee Madison, and Lewis Pullman.

The film hits March 9, 2018.

Synopsis:
A family’s road trip takes a dangerous turn when they arrive at a secluded mobile home park to stay with some relatives and find it mysteriously deserted. Under the cover of darkness, three masked psychopaths pay them a visit to test the family’s every limit as they struggle to survive. Johannes Roberts directs this horror film inspired by the 2008 smash hit The Strangers.

Artist Reimagines Superheroes as Tim Burton Illustrations

Published

on

The world of Tim Burton has always been full of imagination and wonder built on a surreal and often horrific foundation. Films like Beetlejuice and Sleepy Hollow capture the imagination with stunning visuals, all based on the mind of the visionary director. Burton’s artwork was also featured in his illustrated poetry book The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy & Other Stories.

Burton’s work has not only amazed viewers for over three decades, it’s also been an inspiration to countless artists and creators. Enter Los Angeles-by-way-of-Russia artist and animator Andrew Tarusov, whose work has been used by companies such as Cosmopolitan, Disney, 20th Century Fox, Maxim, and more. In a series he simply calls “Tim Burton’s Superheros”, Tarusov took 10 of the biggest comic book characters and gave them a dark twist that is 100% befitting of Burton’s style.

You can see a gallery of these images below. To see more of Tarusov’s work, head on over to his official website.
