New Cloverfield Trailer With RE3?

Published

on

Another chunk of Cloverfield info?Man, let me tell you, whoever is behind all this secrecy surrounding Cloverfield (or whatever it will eventually be called) they sure are doing a damn good job of keeping things confusing so far.

Two e-mails came to me this morning with info that you might consider “updates” but since everything is so up in the air as to what the hell is going on with the JJ Abrams-produced monster movie, who’s to say what’s real and what makes no sense at all? For example, we were contacted by a reader named “Teeds”, who pointed out that the Happy Talk section of the Japanese Slusho page had been updated with new quotes that had a lot to do with whales. My reaction?

What the hell is this guy talking about?

After some digging I found that this Slusho site isn’t exactly what it purports itself to be, which is a site for some weird Japanese Slushy-esque drink. This is a feeling you will likely share if you check out the “History” page; a very strange story, that, but does it have anything to do with Cloverfield? Only God and JJ Abrams know.

The other e-mail was a bit more grounded in reality, as it were, from a reader named “Brian” who claims to have a relative in the movie. He just wanted us to know that he’s heard talk about a new Cloverfield trailer in front of Resident Evil: Extinction, which hits theaters September 21st. The timing would make sense, and damn it’d be nice if they had a title by then, but we’ll have to wait till we’re a bit closer to the release date to know for sure. Just remember where you heard it first if it turns out to be true!

Finally, one last bit of digging I did was around the pages for some of the actors credited with roles in Cloverfield, and I came up with the official site for Mike Vogel, incorrectly credited as “Rob” on the IMDB. He pointed out recently that there are MySpace pages set up for some of the characters from the movie. Nothing about the page he listed as an example, that of JJ Hawkins, gives any indication that he’s anything but a guy from New York, however. But since Vogel was in the movie, I guess he would know, right? Check it out and see if you can find more.

See what I mean? It’s a twisted, convoluted and confusing path one goes down when researching this movie, I just hope JJ Abrams and crew are having a good chuckle about the madness they’ve cause online to date. Bastards.

VENOM Trailer is Pure Action Horror

Published

on

Surprise news for those of you still up late as Sony has dropped the first trailer for Venom, their standalone film based on the character of the same name. For those of you who were wondering how this film might stand up in today’s age of “some are good and some are bad” comic book-to-film adaptations, I’m going to lean towards the former. While I’ll try to remain skeptical, something about the way this movie is looking is grabbing my attention and has me quite excited. Apart from the requisite action that all superhero movies have these days, there’s a wonderful amount of horror throughout the trailer.

Check it out for yourself and let us know what you think in the comments!

One of Marvel’s most enigmatic, complex and badass characters comes to the big screen, starring Academy Award® nominated actor Tom Hardy as the lethal protector Venom.

Directed by Ruben Fleischer, Venom stars Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Scott Haze, and Reid Scott. It infects theaters on October 5, 2018.

POLL: Who Should Direct Wan and King’s TOMMYKNOCKERS?

Published

on

It was just last month that we learned James Wan (Saw, Insidious, The Conjuring) is going to be producing a new big screen adaptation of Stephen King’s The Tommyknockers.

While I’m sad that it seems Wan will not be directing the film, I think it’s a great time to bring up the question: Well, then who the hell SHOULD?

You can find my top 3 choices below and then make sure to let us know who you think should direct James Wan’s upcoming adaptation of Stephen King’s The Tommyknockers in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

ABC mini-series’ executive producer Larry Sanitsky: “It is an allegorical tale of addiction (Stephen was struggling with his own at the time), the threat of nuclear power, the danger of mass hysteria and the absurdity of technical evolution run amuck. All are as relevant today as the day the novel was written. It is also a tale about the eternal power of love and the grace of redemption.”

Stephen King’s The Tommyknockers will be produced by James Wan (The Conjuring), Roy Lee (Stephen King’s IT) and the ABC mini-series’ executive producer Larry Sanitsky.

Synopsis:

A town in Maine that falls under the influence of a dangerous gas from an unearthed spacecraft. The gas begins to transform the people, giving them enhanced abilities, but also making them violent and subject to an alien hive mentality. One man, thanks to a steel plate in his head, is immune to the effects and tries to stop the townspeople.

Guess Who Just Snagged Wan and King’s New TOMMYKNOCKERS

Published

on

Earlier this month we passed along the exciting news that that none other than James Wan plans to bring Stephen King’s novel The Tommyknockers back to the screen.

Wan will be producing (but not at this time, directing) the film along with Roy Lee (IT) and the original ABC mini-series’ executive producer Larry Sanitsky.

And today Deadline reports Universal won the bidding war over the new adaptation, barely beating out fellow heavyweights Sony and Netflix. And thus Universal, home of the classic movie monsters, will be bringing us Wan and King’s first (and hopefully not last) collaboration.

Are you excited by this news? Do you think Universal is the right fit for this new film? Make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!
