Friday the 13th Set Visit Preview!



Friday teh 13th set visit preview!It’s 5AM in Austin, TX. I haven’t slept in 24 hours and I have a flight to catch at 9AM. I’m tired, my stomach hurts and I’m more than a little loopy right now. But you know what? None of it matters, because I just spent the day on the set of Friday the 13th!

Go with me here; I’ve been watching the F13 series as long as I can remember. I have a vivid recollection of being over at one of my parent’s friends houses who were watching the original and having nightmares for weeks when the young, deformed Jason leaps out of the water to pull down Alice at the end. So to actually be on the set of a Friday the 13th film, to see Jason in action and to hear how happy everyone there is with what they’ve done so far; it’s a pretty big freakin’ deal to be honest.

I’ll admit, I’ve lambasted Platinum Dunes in the past as a remake machine, seemingly leaving no horror property untouched but man, they know what they’re doing with this movie. Andrew Form and Brad Fuller, the producers behind Dunes, have a genuine love for the genre and a strong desire to do this film right. Don’t worry about the pervading sense of doom & gloom that have come with all their other remakes, they went into Friday the 13th knowing that part of what made the original films so great was the fact that they were fun as well as violent, and they’ve wanted to do something fun for a long time.

I wish I could dish out the details we learned while on set, tell you about some of the badass things we watched being filmed, but I just can’t. Yet. As Friday, February 13th, 2009 looms closer, you’ll be hearing more and more about my day in the presence of a new and decidedly improved Jason Voorhees, and the hapless college kids who are his latest victims.

For now, though, let me just say that if Platinum Dunes can accomplish what they have set out to do with this franchise reboot, Friday the 13th fans are going to be very happy, indeed.

Flying Wolf! New Rampage Trailer Swoops In



Last month, we shared the crazy-ass trailer for “The Rock vs Three Huge Animals” movie Rampage. And we were all surprised by how serious the movie looks.

Well if that trailer wasn’t enough to get you at least interested in watching titanic beasts curb-stomping entire cities, then maybe today’s new trailer will do the trick.

Give it watch below and then let us know what you think!

Rampage is directed by Brad Peyton and stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Naomie Harris, Malin Akerman, Jake Lacy, Joe Manganiello, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

The film hits theaters April 20.

Primatologist Davis Okoye (Johnson), a man who keeps people at a distance, shares an unshakable bond with George, the extraordinarily intelligent silverback gorilla who has been in his care since birth. But a rogue genetic experiment gone awry transforms this gentle ape into a raging monster. To make matters worse, it’s soon discovered there are other similarly altered alpha predators.

As these newly created monsters tear across North America, destroying everything in their path, Okoye teams with a discredited genetic engineer to secure an antidote, fighting his way through an ever-changing battlefield, not only to halt a global catastrophe but to save the fearsome creature that was once his friend.

See What We Do in the Shadows on the Small Screen



No, we’re not talking about watching the hilarious vampire comedy, What We Do in the Shadows, at home on TV, cable, or Blu-ray… what we’ve got here is a bonafide television series in the works at FX! That’s right, kids, Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi are poised to take a bite out of TV!

Deadline is reporting that both Clement and Waititi have scored a pilot order from FX for a half-hour comedy series based on the 2014 mockumentary horror film.
