Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley’s Island of Dr. Moreau Gets a Trailer and Release News

Lost Soul

Looking for something pretty incredible to watch? Then by all means do whatever you can to see Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley’s Island of Dr. Moreau. Read on for artwork, the trailer, and release details.

From the Press Release:
LOST SOUL – THE DOOMED JOURNEY OF RICHARD STANLEY’S ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU, a Severin Films production, will be hitting several screens across the US in February and March, and a theatrical trailer is now available. LOST SOUL has been a hit on the festival circuit, garnering several awards and exuberant critical and audience response. Richard Stanley, the subject of the documentary, will be making rare US appearances at Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Phoenix dates along with director David Gregory.

The filming of the ill-fated 1996 version of H. G. Welles’ THE ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU is the stuff of legend. For the first time since he was unceremoniously escorted off his longtime dream project, Richard (HARDWARE, DUST DEVIL) Stanley reveals in detail his spectacular original vision and how it was all ripped apart at the seams. Cast members including Fairuza Balk, Marco Hofschneider, and Rob Morrow; executives and producers Robert Shaye, Edward R. Pressman, and Tim Zinnemann; concept artist Graham Humphreys; members of the Stan Winston Makeup Effects team; as well as a host of cast and crew members recall the stories first-hand of colossal egos run amok, a production way out of control, and how the original filmmaker was banished from the set but wouldn’t let go.

Directed by David Gregory (PLAGUE TOWN, THEATRE BIZARRE, THE GODFATHERS OF MONDO), this is the sensational story of what could have been a science fiction masterpiece, which became a huge creative and financial disaster; the story of the outsider artist versus Hollywood machine.

Theatrical engagements have been booked by David Szulkin.

AMC Reveals When The Walking Dead’s Last Stand Will Begin

Published

on

Last night “The Walking Dead” took one of its biggest detours yet from the storyline of the comics on which the series is based, but you won’t find any spoilers here aside for a peek at the show’s midseason return trailer.  In addition to the video, we have confirmation of when Episode 8.09 will be airing… read on for the details of when our survivors’ last stand begins!

Season 8 of “The Walking Dead” resumes on Sunday, February 25th, at 9/8c.  While you wait, if you’re not totally caught up, you can binge all the latest episodes on AMC.com or the AMC app.

Season 8 Synopsis:
Last season Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and his group of survivors were confronted with their deadliest challenge yet. With the comfort of Alexandria, they let their guard down, only to be reminded how brutal the world they live in can be.

Feeling powerless under Negan’s (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) rules and demands, Rick advocated the group play along. But seeing that Negan couldn’t be reasoned with, Rick began rallying together other communities affected by the Saviors. And with the support of the Hilltop and Kingdom, they finally have enough fire power to contest the Saviors.

This season Rick brings “All Out War” to Negan and his forces. The Saviors are larger, better-equipped, and ruthless — but Rick and the unified communities are fighting for the promise of a brighter future. The battle lines are drawn as they launch into a kinetic, action-packed offensive.

Up until now, survival has been the focus of Rick and our group, but it’s not enough. They have to fight to take back their freedom so that they can live. So that they can rebuild. As with any battle, there will be losses. Casualties. But with Rick leading the Alexandrian forces, Maggie (Lauren Cohan) leading the Hilltop, and King Ezekiel (Khary Payton) leading the Kingdom — Negan and the Saviors’ grip on this world may finally be coming to an end.
