Exclusive Interview: Daniel Cudmore Talks Halo 4: Forward Unto DawnThe live-action series Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn launches today and will lead up to the launch of the Halo 4 video game. We recently set down with actor Daniel Cudmore who portrays Master Chief in Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn to get more details on the amazing series.

Read on to learn more!

AMANDA DYAR: You are portraying Master Chief in Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn. How did you research the role and how exciting was it to step into the shoes of such an iconic character in the video game industry?

DANIEL CUDMORE: It’s a very iconic character that I did not want to mess up. I did my research through the various games and fiction novels written about how Master Chief came to be. I also had a great group of guys on set that were literal bibles on Halo that I could go to for any questions I had.

AMANDA: Since you are not a big gamer did that make the process of becoming Master Chief difficult or was it easy once you officially stepped into the official suit of armor?

DANIEL: I don’t think being a big gamer or not affected my process; it’s just the same as any other role I’ve played. I do the research and add my own touch to what I feel the character of the Chief is.

AMANDA: You have been in films such as Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, X-Men: The Last Stand and the Twilight Saga series. How was the acting process different for Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn compared to other projects you have completed?

DANIEL: It was suit performing so it was a different process from acting without one on. Your movements have to be a bit exaggerated to transfer better on film. At the same time though, I’m still acting out these scenes with the other actors, so the emotion of the dialogue has to be true to the situation, all the while through a helmet that’s tough to hear out of.. It was challenging but fun at the same time.

AMANDA: Lastly, what was your favorite part of Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn and your role as Master Chief?

DANIEL: Besides putting on the suit for the first time, it would have to be riding around on the back of the warthog!

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



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.

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



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.
