New Developments Concerning Shaun of the DeadCalm down, guys. This isn’t a story about a remake or anything even remotely like that. In fact… this is something pretty damned cool. On tap right now is a sliver of movie history… AND… the coolest damned thing that you’re likely to see all day!

While the source of the image below is as of yet unknown, we can tell you that what you’re looking at is the exact photo, snapped by Ed (Nick Frost), of Shaun (Simon Pegg) being attacked by a zombie during Edgar Wright’s 2004 masterpiece Shaun of the Dead.

Where this picture has been for the past 10 years is anyone’s guess, but we sure are glad someone has dusted it off and placed it online. Check it out, and if you haven’t seen Shaun of the Dead yet, please correct that travesty immediately!

Netflix’s STRANGER THINGS 3 Begins Filming!

Published

on

Nice! Looks like the third season of Netflix’s original series Stranger Things begins filming today.

The news dropped over on Collider with producer Shawn Levy telling the site the team just completed the table read which included the season’s first 4 scripts.

It is the same number of scripts as last year,” Levy says. “The rest of them kind of get written as we shoot, as we edit, as we go. I’m once again directing the third and fourth episodes so that I can give the Duffers a breather, and send them back into the writing cave so that they can buff out the rest of the season.”

He continues: “That’s why I took on these episodes in Season One, and now the three of us are just a little too superstitious to mess with what’s worked so far. The prep beyond that, it’s really a similar juggling act where the Duffers, because they always understandably want to direct the kick-off episodes, they have to juggle their limited time between writing and re-writing and prepping as directors, all at the same time.”

How excited are you to know that filming on Stranger Things 3 is underway? Make sure to let us know in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

Exclusive: THE GREAT BUDDHA ARRIVAL Adds Kaiju Acting Legend

Published

on

Just over a month ago, we brought you news of the majestic looking The Great Buddha Arrival (Daibutsu Kaikoju), an upcoming Japanese kaiju film that pays homage to the “daimajin” movies of the 60’s. A remake of the 1934 movie of the same name, this iteration will be directed by Hiroto Yokokawa and will star Yoshihiko Ohtsuki, Junichiro Nirasawa and Kazuma Yoneyama.

Today, we can confirm that legendary kaiju actor Akira Takarada has joined the cast! Takarada has appeared in six of the Gojira films, including the original 1954 entry! Fun fact: he played a different character in each of those movies because continuity is for the birds.

The film is raised funds on Kickstarter and plans to release the film in December after it films in August. Sound like a tight production? It most certainly is!

Check out a teaser below and get ready for some Great Buddha city stomping this winter!
