Michael (Boom! Crash! Bang!) Bay Takes Over Steven Spielberg’s Robopocalypse

Published

on

It seems like forever ago that Steven Spielberg was attached to a big-budget, crazy-ass action flick called Robopocalypse. It didn’t quite seem to me to be a typical Spielberg flick and so today’s news rings all too true.

Yes, Variety reports that Michael (smh) Bay is taking over the reins of Spielberg’s Robopocalypse… Because the man never gets tired of filming robots beating the ass off each other with other robots, evidently.

But really, Hollywood, replacing Steven (Saving Private Ryan) Spielberg with Michael (Pearl Harbor) Bay? I guess Uwe Boll should stand-by just in case Martin Scorsese drops out of his newest motion picture.

The film is based on the novel by Daniel H. Wilson and is set after a robot uprising. We’ll let you know once we hear more on Michael Bay’s Robopocalypse, but until then check out the book trailer for the novel below.

Synopsis:

Not far into our future, the dazzling technology that runs our world turns against us. Controlled by a childlike—yet massively powerful—artificial intelligence known as Archos, the global network of machines on which our world has grown dependent suddenly becomes an implacable, deadly foe. At Zero Hour—the moment the robots attack—the human race is almost annihilated, but as its scattered remnants regroup, humanity for the first time unites in a determined effort to fight back. This is the oral history of that conflict, told by an international cast of survivors who experienced this long and bloody confrontation with the machines. Brilliantly conceived and amazingly detailed, Robopocalypse is an action-packed epic with chilling implications about the real technology that surrounds us.

New Gremlins a Reboot, Prequel, or Sequel?

Published

on

What’s the deal with Gremlins 3? Recently the original film’s director Joe Dante told us that the film will be a prequel and today we have news that it will be a complete reboot.

What gives? Well, Metro USA spoke to Columbus recently and the man dropped some interesting info on the (possible) upcoming Gremlins film.

Gremlins we are actively talking about that. So that’s what I am working on with my production company 1492 Pictures.”

He then adds: “It will almost definitely be a reboot.”

I’m thinking Chris Columbus knows what he’s talking about considering he’s not only producing this new movie but he was also the screenwriter on the 1984 classic. Who do you believe? Does it even matter? Reboot, prequel, or sequel, I know I’ll be there opening night.

What about you? Do you care what studios call the film as long as it has Gizmo in it? Make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

Synopsis:

A gadget salesman is looking for a special gift for his son and finds one at a store in Chinatown. The shopkeeper is reluctant to sell him the “mogwai” but sells it to him with the warning to never expose him to bright light, water, or to feed him after midnight. All of this happens and the result is a gang of gremlins that decide to tear up the town on Christmas Eve.

Ash vs Evil Dead Has Been Cancelled; Bruce Campbell Tweets Emotional Message

Published

on

It’s looking like lackluster ratings have nailed the final coffin in STARZ’ “Ash vs Evil Dead” as the series has been cancelled. Taking to Twitter, Bruce Campbell gave an emotional message that pays respect not just to the series but also to the history of the Evil Dead franchise itself.

Ash Vs Evil Dead has been the ride of a lifetime. Ash Williams was the role of a lifetime. I will always be grateful to Starz, Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and our tireless fans for the opportunity to revisit the franchise that launched our careers. Thank you!” Williams wrote, attaching an image of himself as Ash with the message, “Ash has left the building.


Starring Campbell alongside Ray Santiago, Dan DeLorenzo, and Lucy Lawless, “Ash vs Evil Dead” followed the exploits of Ash Williams as he fought the Deadite hordes decades after his original encounters. Crass, violent, over-the-top, and an absolute blast, it’s a damn shame that the series is coming to an end, especially now that we’ve met Ash’s daughter, Brandy, and a fourth season may very well have allowed Raimi and Co. to pass the torch along to a new generation.
