It turns out we’re not quite done with letting attendees know about the horror offerings at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con as word has just arrived that Weyland-Yutani and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment will be recruiting fans for their next colonization mission at Booth #3529. Read on for the details of Alien: Covenant‘s invasion of SDCC!

From the Press Release:
The Alien universe comes to life at San Diego Comic-Con when the ALIEN: COVENANT “Colonist Certification Test” arrives courtesy of Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Fans will be given the opportunity to test their fortitude and attempt to be selected for Weyland-Yutani’s next colonization mission.*

Those who enter the test will be subjected to rigorous standards like the crew of the Covenant had to endure, specifically testing their ability to handle tense situations. Upon completion of their assessment, guests will receive their own “Colonist Certification Badge” and a set of collectible pins from Weyland-Yutani and the Covenant.

Additionally fans will have a chance to pre-order their copy of ALIEN: COVENANT on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD (releasing August 15th) and receive one of 500 limited edition lithographs as a gift with purchase while supplies last. Fans can pre-order at the “Colonist Certification Test” Booth #3529 or at the main Fox Booth #4229.

Fans throughout San Diego will also have a chance to experience ALIEN: COVENANT off the show floor. On Thursday through Sunday, convention goers can seek and take photos with the “Secure Egg Transport” featuring fragile and dangerous Alien eggs guarded by employees of Weyland-Yutani. Those that tweet using the hashtag #AlienSweepstakes during Comic-Con will be entered to win an authentic ALIEN: COVENANT replica facehugger. For complete rules visit: Alienuniverse.com/Sweeps.

Fans can follow everything going on at Comic-Con using the hashtag #AlienSDCC.

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created with ALIEN: COVENANT, a new chapter in his groundbreaking Alien franchise. The crew of the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise but is actually a dark, dangerous world. When they uncover a threat beyond their imagination, they must attempt a harrowing escape.

Chiller Channel Will Be Discontinued This January

Published

on

Back in March of 2007, the Chiller horror channel was launched. The channel was filled with wall-to-wall horror movies and TV shows.

The channel even tried their hand at original scripted content recently with the series “Slasher, starring Kaite McGrath. The second season just premiered on Netflix.

But it seems like today we have bad news. The end of an era. NBC has decided to shut down the Chiller Channel effective beginning on January 1, 2018.

This news comes to us via the TV Answer Man, with an NBC spokesperson telling the site, “NBC Universal will discontinue Chiller as of January 1, 2018.”

The spokesperson didn’t give any further details on the decision but many believe it has everything to do with Verizon, Charter, and Dish dropping the channel earlier this year.

While those drops weren’t catastrophic, the final nail in the coffin came recently when Cox dropped the channel, effectively pulling it out of around 40 million homes.

Are you sad to see the Chiller channel canceled? How often did you watch content via Chiller? Make sure to hit us up and let us know in the comments below.

Another WolfCop Gets Another Poster via The Dude Designs

Published

on

It was only last week that we shared the bloody new trailer for writer-director Lowell Dean’s upcoming sequel to his hit horror-comedy flick WolfCop.

Today we have another poster for Another WolfCop.

This new poster comes to us from one of my current favorite poster artists, Tom “The Dude” Hodge. If you’re unfamiliar with the name, you surely know his work. To refamiliarize yourself, you can check out more of his posters right here.

Below you will find his new poster for Another WolfCop, along with the flick’s newest trailer. After that make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments!

The film is written and directed by Lowell Dean, produced by Bernie Hernando, Deborah Marks, and Hugh Patterson, and distributed worldwide by Cineplex.

Another WolfCop co-stars Amy Matysio, Jonathan Cherry, and Serena Miller. The film also features special appearances from Canadian music icon Gowan and legendary filmmaker Kevin Smith. It was executive produced by Sean Buckley, J. Joly, Bill Marks, Brian Wideen, Michael Kennedy, and Michael Hirsch.

The film is slated for a wide Cineplex theatrical release on Friday, December 8, 2017, with the film seeing a Blu-ray/DVD/Digital home entertainment release through A71 and Black Fawn in 2018.

Synopsis:
A month has passed since the eclipse transformed hard-drinking Officer Lou Garou into the crime-fighting hellion WolfCop. Although the Shape Shifters controlling the town have been extinguished, Woodhaven is far from returning to normal. Lou’s liquor-fueled antics and full moon outbursts are seriously testing his relationship with Officer Tina Walsh – the new Chief of Police. An old friend has mysteriously reappeared with a truly bizarre secret to share, and a homicidal new villain has emerged from the shadows looking to finish what the Shape Shifters started. To defeat this lethal adversary, it will take more than a lone wolf packing a pistol.

Prepare for the next chapter of WolfCop that will be more dirty and hairy than the original! Consider yourself warned.
