As if we weren’t already excited enough for the upcoming arrival of anthology film The ABCs of Death, one look at the flick’s new poster was all it took to push us into a state of near frenzy! Check it out and see if you agree.

EW unveiled the movie’s poster earlier today, which was designed by Kaare Andrews, a comic book artist-writer (The Incredible Hulk, Ultimate X-Men) and filmmaker (Altitude) who, along with being one of the directors of The ABCs of Death, is also currently prepping the Cabin Fever prequel Patient X.

Synopsis:
Established directors and some of the most gifted emerging directors will make up the diverse roster of creative talent that will showcase twenty-six tales of mortality, beginning with the letter A and ending with the letter Z. This will be a celebration of death in all its forms. From the shocking and exotic to the banal and droll. The spectrum of cause will run from the accidental through to murder most foul. It is up to each director to interpret the letter they are assigned, and they were given free reign in choosing a word to create their story involving death.

    Bigfoot Horror Movie Cherokee Creek Gets Trailer and Poster

    Published

    on

    I have always said that the last movie monster out there that has yet to get a quality flag-ship flick is Bigfoot. Everyone in the world knows Bigfoot (right?) so why the hell isn’t there a “Holy Grail” movie centered around the big, hairy sumbitch?

    Don’t get me wrong, there have been a few quality motion pictures based on the big guy including Bobcat Goldthwait’s Willow Creek and Edwardo Sanchez’s Exists. But neither of those films blew the roof off the movie-going public.

    Maybe Cherokee Creek will finally do the trick?

    We’ll have to wait and see. But until the film has an official release date we can always take a look at the film’s trailer and poster – both of which you will find below.

    Give them a look and then make sure to let us know what you think has been the best Bigfoot movie thus far (Harry and the Hendersons?) in the comments below!

    The film is written and directed by Todd Jenkins and stars Billy Blair, Todd Jenkins, Justin Armstrong, Terry Dale Parks, Ray Hosack, Jeff Swearingen, Justin Duncan, CG Lewis, Nellie Sciutto, Steve Mokate, Jason P. Kendall, Anthony Phoenix, James Yeager, Elizabeth Jenkins, and Jinx Jenkins.

    Synopsis:

    Edward James Olmos Says Shane Black’s The Predator is Really Funny, Yet Deadly

    Published

    on

    When we first heard that writer-director Shane Black (Kiss, Kiss, Bang, Band, The Nice Guys) and his main collaborator Fred Dekker (Night of the Creeps, The Monster Squad) were going to be taking on a big-budget reboot/sequel of Predator we were excited as hell. As we’re sure you were as well.

    We knew the film was going to be, at least in some aspects, the funniest Predator film we have seen thus far. I mean with Black and Dekker penning the script how could it NOT?

    But just how funny will The Predator be?

    Well, if we are to believe ScienceFiction.com and co-star Edward James Olmos, the movie is going to be hilarious… yet still deadly.

    The Blade Runner actor was recently out and about promoting the new Disney film Coco, and dropped some all-new info on Shane Black’s The Predator.

    “Oh, my goodness. That’s an interesting story,” Edward James Olmos told the site. “I haven’t seen any of it, but it’s gonna be funny. The kids in the thing. Yeah, the humor. Huge. Huge. I mean I was in shock, because, you know this is a really intense franchise, and it still is. Don’t get me wrong. You’re gonna be inside of it. But the characters are… what he did — Shane is an incredibly gifted writer, and he’s a great director, and so he ended up getting an incredible ensemble, and when I reached it they had already been filming for three months so they were a unit. So I jump in as the General and there were some moments where I just had to laugh in the scene and I couldn’t be laughing in the scene. ‘I’m sorry guys. Really, I’m sorry.'”

    “Keegan (Michael Key) and Thomas Jane, they’re paired off in groups of three groups,” he continues. “Six guys. The way they work, they were all post-traumatic stress disorder guys who were inside of an insane asylum. A mental hospital. Then they put the lead character in there to kind of make them disappear, because they want them kind of out of the picture. And so he gets involved and then boom, the world goes crazy and these kids are released. But out of a freaky incident with some of the Predators. It’s crazy. It’s so crazy. I’m excited for it, and I don’t know what’s gonna happen. I got a good feeling about it. I mean if it’s really funny, and yet deadly like Predator is.”

    I’m not surprised at all that the film is going to be funny, and the thought of a humorous Predator movie doesn’t worry me in the slightest either. I have utter faith that Black and Dekker will give us one of the best Predator films in the franchise.

    What do you think? Let us know below!

    The Predator stars Thomas Jane, Edward James Olmos, Sterling K. Brown, Trevante Rhodes, Boyd Holbrook, Jacob Tremblay, Olivia Munn, Alfie Allen, Yvonne Strahovski, Augusto Aguilera, and Keegan-Michael Key.

    Black is directing from a script by Fred Dekker. John Davis, Joel Silver, and Lawrence Gordon — who produced the original — are producing.

    The Predator comes out August 3, 2018.

    The Girl in the Spider’s Web Snares It’s Bad Guy

    Published

    on

    A few months back word dropped that “The Crown” star Claire Foy would be taking up the role of Lisbeth Salander in director Fede Alvarez’s The Girl in the Spider’s Web.

    The movie is a sequel/reboot to David Fincher’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and before all of this gets too confusing, it breaks down like this:

    There were a series of books based on Lisbeth Slander called the Millennium trilogy a few years back. The books were called “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”, “The Girl who Played with Fire”, and “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest.”

    These were made into a series of Swedish movies with Prometheus star Noomi Rapace as Salander.

    The first in a planned trilogy of American remakes was produced by Fincher and starred Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara as Lisbeth. But the American version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo wasn’t a smash success so all future installments were abandoned.

    In the meantime, a new trilogy of Lisbeth books were published over in Sweden and the first was called “The Girl in the Spider’s Web”… and now Sony is just skipping all the other books and jumping right to the new trilogy for a reboot.

    Make sense?

    I know, it doesn’t but whatever. For the time being, let’s just call this new flick a sequel/reboot to David Fincher’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and leave it at that.

    Anyhow, today’s news concerns the new film’s villain who will be played by Claes Bang (The Square). On top of that, Sylvia Hoeks (Blade Runner 2049) has also joined the cast as Salander’s twin sister.

    The new installment is directed by Fede Alvarez from a script by Steven Knight and Fede Alvarez & Jay Basu, based on the book by David Lagercrantz

    The film begins shooting this January in Stockholm before hitting theaters Oct. 19, 2018.

    Synopsis:

    She is the girl with the dragon tattoo — a genius hacker and uncompromising misfit. He is a crusading journalist whose championing of the truth often brings him to the brink of prosecution.

    Late one night, Blomkvist receives a phone call from a source claiming to have information vital to the United States. The source has been in contact with a young female superhacker — a hacker resembling someone Blomkvist knows all too well. The implications are staggering. Blomkvist, in desperate need of a scoop for Millennium, turns to Salander for help. She, as usual, has her own agenda. The secret they are both chasing is at the center of a tangled web of spies, cybercriminals, and governments around the world, and someone is prepared to kill to protect it…
