The Weinstein Co.
News just hit our desks that the official trailer for the soon to be released Apollo 18 will be hitting this crazy thing called the interwebs in less than a day. Of course you realize that when it does we'll be right here waiting!
Yet another blacked out sheet of viral goodness has made its way online in support of the soon to be released Apollo 18. You can find it below with all the rest. Do these puzzle pieces fit together? Can you make any sense of it? Let us know!
The truth may be out there, but as far as Apollo 18 goes, it's been censored with a black magic marker. Still, there's some interesting reading to be had as this viral marketing mystery deepens.
What do you expect? Missions to the moon are complicated, man! All sorts of setbacks can happen. In any event Dimension Films announced today that Apollo 18 will be launching in theatres on April 22, 2011, instead of the previously announced date in early March.
Good news for fans who are wondering just who will be handling The Weinstein Co.'s Blu-ray and DVD titles. The house that Bob and Harvey built has teamed with the house that horror built. From the Press Release:
A very famous show once touted the fact that the truth is out there. While that may be so, we just wish certain parts of it weren't blacked out! Get set for some more viral goodness coming out of the Apollo 18 camp!
We announced way back in September of 2009 that the Weinsteins had picked Patrick Lussier to direct the third chapter in the Halloween universe created by Rob Zombie, called tentatively, Halloween 3D.
And the viral goodness keeps on coming in anticipation of Dimension Films' upcoming cinéma-vérité shock-fest Apollo 18, and we're loving every minute of it.
In light of the WikiLeaks hoopla, it seems as if all of our government's "secrets" are slowly oozing out. One of them has just been "uncovered" pertaining to why our country hasn't been back to the moon.
Talk about hitting the fast track. It seems as if The Weinsteins are releasing new stuff for their upcoming found footage flick Apollo 18 just about every week, and that's totally cool as far as we're concerned because this alien flick is looking pretty kick-ass!
Found footage films continue to find their niche within the genre, and we're totally cool with that as long as they're good. With several deadly alien life form films on the way, both cinéma-vérité style and otherwise, 2011 is shaping up to be the type of cinematic extraterrestrial invasion that was last echoed in the UFO crazed Fifties and Sixties.
You just can't keep the Weinsteins down. Say what you want about them, they're one of the most resilient companies on the planet! So resilient in fact they're making acquisitions at AFM! That's right, kids, there's more alien mayhem coming our way in Apollo 18.
One of the highlights of Piranha 3D was the death of the smarmy Joe Francis-like character played by Jerry O'Connell, and the producers have decided to take Piranha 3D 2 to the next level by having fans help select which "celebrity" they want to see offed next.
It sounds as if things are finally in the process of ironing themselves out over at The Weinstein Company, which is no doubt hoping for some big bank this weekend with Piranha 3D (review here).
There's been talk of a Hellraiser remake for several years now, and throughout that time many different names had been associated with it. Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on how you're looking at it) things never worked out and the project laid dormant. Yet, now a new standalone film is apparently on its way.
