The next entry in Syfy’s Saturday Original Movie lineup, Jules Verne’s Mysterious Island, airs on February 11th, and to help get you ready for the directorial debut of fan favorite Mark Sheppard (“Battlestar Galactica”, “Supernatural”), we have a pair of never-before-seen stills to share.

Synopsis:
In Jules Verne’s Mysterious Island, as famine and death ravage Richmond, Virginia, five northern Civil War POWs, including Emmy Award-winner Pruitt Taylor Vince (AMC’s “The Walking Dead”, JFK, Drive Angry, Constantine) and Lochlyn Munro (Dead Man on Campus, White Chicks), plan a daring escape by hijacking a hot air balloon. Drifting through the night, they wake to find themselves marooned on a desert island… but they’re not alone.

Littered with wreckage, the island is home to a cast of survivors who have been lost in space and time, including sisters Abby Fogg (Susie Abromeit, Battle Los Angeles) and Jules Fogg (Gina Holden, Saw 3D and Alien vs. Predator), two young women from modern times who become stranded while flying over the Bermuda Triangle.

Forced to defend themselves against vicious pirates, terrifying creatures and a volcano that’s ready to blow, they must find a way to survive. Their only hope to escape the island lies with its longest resident, Captain Nemo (Mark Sheppard’s real life father – W. Morgan Sheppard, Star Trek, Transformers, Gods and Generals). With his help they craft another plan… but will they make it before the island claims them all forever?

“We were faced with a tremendous challenge. It’s always hard to bring Jules Verne’s stories to life – you run the risk of upsetting an awful lot of diehard fans. But we tried to stay true to some of the key elements of the book in the spirit of what makes Jules Verne one of the greatest storytellers of all time,” says director Sheppard, who also makes a cameo in the film as a young Captain Nemo.

Be sure to tune in to this Saturday’s 9 p.m. telecast, and for additional info, including more photos, videos, and poster ordering info, visit the official Jules Verne’s Mysterious Island website and of course the Syfy website.

New Trailer Arrives for Overkill’s The Walking Dead Video Game

Published

on

Over two years after it was announced, we’ve finally been given our first good look at Overkill’s Walking Dead video game in the form of a series of new videos posted on the company’s YouTube channel.

The first video introduces Aiden, one of the playable survivors, and confirms that the game will be set in Washington D.C. No gameplay is shown, but it still serves as a pretty decent intro for yet another story in the Walking Dead universe.

Following on from the trailer above, Overkill also released a video introducing the team working on the game, in addition to an extended 28 minute interview with Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman.

Overkill’s The Walking Dead will be a four player co-op action FPS in which you’ll have to fight crazed fellow survivors in addition to zombies. There will be four playable survivors in total, each with their own unique upgradable abilities.

Starbreeze Studios will publish the game on PS4, Xbox One, and PC sometime next year. Keep an eye on Overkill’s YouTube channel for more updates in the meantime.

New Insidious: The Last Key Trailer Speaks Softly But Carries a Big Whistle

Published

on

The last word we brought you guys on the fourth installment in the Insidious franchise was when we let you know the new film had snagged a PG-13 rating from the MPAA for “disturbing thematic content, violence and terror, and brief strong language”.

Today we have a new trailer/TV spot for Insidious: The Last Key, and if you aren’t already on board for a fourth round of spooky shite courtesy of screenwriter Leigh Whannel, maybe this quick trailer will do the trick.

You can check out the new trailer below; then let us know how excited you are for Insidious: The Last Key!

I’m digging what I’ve seen from the new film thus far, and this new trailer only strengthens that. Plus I’m excited to see what director Adam Robitel can do with this series after his fucking terrifying previous film The Taking of Deborah Logan.

The film is directed by Adam Robitel from a script by Leigh Whannell and stars Lin Shaye, Angus Sampson, Leigh Whannell, Josh Stewart, Caitlin Gerard, Kirk Acevedo, Javier Botet, Bruce Davison, Spencer Locke, Tessa Ferrer, Ava Kolker, and Marcus Henderson.

Insidious: The Last Key hits theaters January 5, 2018.

Synopsis:

Parapsychologist Elise Rainier and her team travel to Five Keys, N.M., to investigate a man’s claim of a haunting. Terror soon strikes when Rainier realizes that the house he lives in was her family’s old home.
