Back in the Eighties there were certain movies I’d rent on VHS just because the cover art was so damned good. Sure, some of them ended up sucking in comparison to their flashy covers, but screw it! It was all part of the budding home video experience.

Thankfully The Dude Designs remembers those times very well and as a result has been cranking out an amazing canon of eye candy.

Poster Collective presents The Dude’s FIRST EVER limited edition print available for sale to the human public (and/or all types of computer-trained dogs or monkeys.) The print will be available for sale on Friday, October 19th, 2012 @ 10AM ET via Poster Collective right here. The sale page also includes an in-depth interview with The Dude on his concept for this poster, VHS memories, video nasties in the UK and much more.

The duo has also teamed up with Keep a Breast (the leading youth-focused, global, nonprofit breast cancer organization) to whom he will donate $1 for each poster sold and an extra $50 if all the posters sell out. October is National Breast Cancer Prevention Month.

Thanks to our friends at Bloody Disgusting who got the first look!

    Investigate The Paranormal In The X-Files: Deep State Mobile Game

    Published

    on

    “The X-Files” franchise will turn 25 next year, and what better way to celebrate than with the launch of a new video game? That’s right, the mobile game The X-Files: Deep State will be released in February 2018, and, in the style of the show, will feature a story about aliens and government conspiracies. The events of the game will take place in the year 2010, between seasons nine and ten of the show.

    The X-Files: Deep State is being developed by Creative Mobile Games and will be published by FoxNext, and as with the majority of mobile games these days, will be free to play with in-game purchases.

    Meanwhile, season 11 of “The X-Files” TV series will premiere on January 3, 2018. Which may be its last hurrah, because I dread to think what Disney will do with the franchise if they ultimately do end up purchasing 20th Century Fox.

    Inside Remake Gets New Poster and U.S. Release Date

    Published

    on

    It’s about time.

    It has been a whopping four months since we shared with you guys the red band trailer for the upcoming English language remake of Inside starring Rachel Nichols and Laura Harring.

    Today we have an all-new poster for the film (via our buddies at Arrow in the Head), and the one-sheet also boasts the remake’s U.S. release date. Yes, Inside will be hitting Stateside on January 12, 2018.

    You can click on the poster to the right to check it out in higher-res. After that make sure to hit us up and let us know if you’re planning to check out this remake in the comments below!

    Miguel Ángel Vivas directed the Inside remake.

    Produced by Adrian Guerra and Nuria Valls at Spain’s Nostromo Pictures, the remake was written by Manu Diez and [REC] creator/co-director Jaume Balaguero. “We took the original idea and made it an edge-of-your-seat thriller, more Hitchcock-ian than a splatter-fest,” said Guerra.

    Again, Inside hits U.S. theaters and VOD January 12, 2018.

    Synopsis:
    Pregnant and depressed, a young widow tries to rebuild her life following the fateful car accident where she lost her husband and partially lost her hearing. Now, about to go into labor, she’s living in a remote house in the suburbs when, one Christmas night, she receives an unexpected visit from another woman with a devastating objective: to rip the child she’s carrying from inside her. But a mother’s fury when it comes to protecting her child should never be underestimated.

    Deep Blue Sea 2 Rated R for Creature Violence/Gore and Language

    Published

    on

    Five months ago we shared the news that there was a secret sequel to the 1999 killer sharks vs. Tom Jane and LL Cool J movie Deep Blue Sea filming, and today we have the sequel’s rating.

    And it’s about what you’d expect. Not that that’s a bad thing.

    Yes, the upcoming shark attack sequel Deep Blue Sea 2 has been rated R by the MPAA for “creature violence and gore and for language.”

    Not only that, but we have a few words on what we can expect from the sequel via a creative executive over at Warner Bros. named Matt Bierman.

    “We are a true sequel,” Bierman said regarding the sequel. “We wanted to keep to the spirit of Deep Blue Sea and why people love it. The research that was used on the sharks in Deep Blue Sea 2 comes from the mythology and storyline of the first movie. We have given the lead shark a personality and hope the fans will embrace that as it really helps the storytelling and the narrative in a way that [the] first one didn’t. Deep Blue Sea 2 has a slightly slower build, but once the rubber band snaps, things go boom really quickly!”

    The lead shark has a personality? How could that be a bad thing?

    Let’s just hope there aren’t scenes of the rugged Tom Jane stand-in lovingly hugging/stroking the shark after it does something cool and telling the new guy how the shark (nicknamed Bruce) is just “misunderstood.”

    …And then the shark saves everyone at the end. Called it.

    The sequel is directed by Darin Scott from a screenplay by Erik Patterson, Hans Rodionoff, and Jessica Scott and stars Danielle Savre, Rob Mayes, and Michael Beach.

    The movie is set to premiere on Syfy sometime next year. Once we know the exact date we’ll let us know so stay tuned!

    “Deepest. Bluest. My head is like a shark’s fin…”
