Latest Da Vinci's Demons Promo Teases Heroic Deeds to ComeWith “Da Vinci’s Demons” arriving on Starz this coming Friday night, another teaser promo has arrived, and this one shows off a few of the heroic deeds we can look forward to from our lead character.

While the da Vinci depicted in the history books was renowned for his works of art and inventions that included the calculator, army tank, diving suit, solar power, and many more, “Da Vinci’s Demon’s” depicts a 25-year-old da Vinci (portrayed by Tom Riley, Return to House on Haunted Hill, “Bedlam”) on the cusp of greatness, with intellect and talents that are almost superhuman. In the series he struggles to live within the confines of his own reality and time, tortured by his unsurpassed intellect. He begins to not only see the future, but invent it.

The series also stars Laura Haddock (“Honest,” Captain America: The First Avenger), who plays the celebrated beauty with obscure motives, Lucrezia Donati; Elliot Cowan (“Marchlands,” “The Fixer,” “Lost in Austen”), who plays the shrewd de facto ruler of Florence, Lorenzo Medici; Lara Pulver (“True Blood,” “Sherlock,” “Robin Hood”), who plays his wife, Clarice Orsini; and Blake Ritson (RocknRolla, Titus, “World Without End”) as Pope Sixtus’ ruthless bastard son, Count Riario.

David S. Goyer, known for co-writing The Dark Knight trilogy, the upcoming Man of Steel, and serving as story editor for Call of Duty: Black Ops and Black Ops II, the most successful video game franchise of all time, also served as showrunner on “Da Vinci’s Demons” and directed the first two episodes.

After its premiere on Friday, April 12th, at 10pm ET/PT, following the finale of “Spartacus: War of the Damned,” “Da Vinci’s Demons” will air Friday nights at 9pm ET/PT on Starz.

Synopsis:
In a world where thought and faith are controlled, one man fights to set knowledge free.

The secret history of Leonardo da Vinci’s tantalizing life reveals a portrait of a young man tortured by a gift of superhuman genius. He is a heretic intent on exposing the lies of religion. An insurgent seeking to subvert an elitist society. A bastard son who yearns for legitimacy with his father.

He finds himself in the midst of a storm that has been brewing for centuries. A conflict between truth and lies, religion and reason, past and future. His aspirations are used against him by the opposing forces of the time—luring him into a game of seduction where those who despise his intellect need him most. Leonardo must take up the fight against foes who use history to suppress the truth. A hero armed only with genius, da Vinci stands alone against the darkness within, and the darkness without.

Facing an uncertain future, his quest for knowledge nearly becomes his undoing as he explores the fringes of his own sanity. Da Vinci throws himself into his genius and emerges as an unstoppable force that lifts an entire era out of darkness and propels it into light. His story becomes a mirror into our own world, calling us all to join his fight to Free the Future.

This HALLOWEEN II Scene Was Too Much for Scout Taylor-Compton

Published

on

Scout Taylor-Compton is no strange to the horror game. After all, she has starred in not only Rob Zombie’s Halloween and Halloween II, but you can also see Compton in such horror flicks April Fool’s Day, Flight 7500, Ghost House, Wicked Little Things, and the recent IFC Midnight movie Feral.

As you can imagine, Compton isn’t the easiest actress to freak out, but that doesn’t mean one scene from Halloween II didn’t get to her big-time. The scene in question is her character, Laurie Strode’s reaction to (SPOILER) finding her best friend Annie (Danielle Harris) dead after Michael Myers’ brutal bathroom attack.

That scene gets me so much,” Compton told Daily Dead. “It’s the only scene that I’ve ever done in my career, of any of my horror movies, that I wasn’t able to handle. I had to walk off set after my close-ups because I just couldn’t stop crying.”

She continues: “It just felt so real to me, because Danielle is like a sister, so just seeing her like that was absolutely heart-wrenching. That was definitely my favorite scene that I have ever done, and it was the hardest.”

What did you think of Rob Zombie’s Halloween II? Make sure to hit us up and let us know in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

Synopsis:

A year after narrowly escaping death at the hands of Michael Myers (Tyler Mane), Laurie Strode is at the breaking point, pushed to the edge by Dr. Loomis’ (Malcolm McDowell) revelation that she’s Michael’s sister. Little does she know, the unstoppable killer is back in Haddonfield and, driven by visions of their dead mother (Sheri Moon Zombie), he is determined to bring about a bloody family reunion.

Published

on

It isn’t often in this day and age of superheroes that all of us horror fans get a flick to be excited about. Sure we have Venom on the way starring Tom Hardy, but let’s not forget that the planned adaptation of Morbius The Living Vampire should be good horror times as well.

And speaking of which today we have word on just what the Morbius movie might be about. A supposed working logline for the film reads as follows:

Horror action story of a scientist who, in trying to find a cure for a rare blood disease, accidentally transformed himself into a living vampire who, though disgusted by his own bloodlust, chooses to prey upon criminals he deems unworthy of life.”

This is about what we could expect the film to be about, but still, it’s cool to see that the powers that we are approaching the film as a “horror-action” film and not the other way around. This news came to us from That Hashtag Show and thus may not be the official logline for the film, but we will make sure to keep you guys up-to-date on any news we hear regarding this horror-action movie.

THE FIRST PURGE Rated R For “Strong Disturbing Violence Throughout” and More

Published

on

This Independence Day, we will not be attacked by aliens or other such nonsense. No, we will be experiencing The First Purge via Blumhouse and director Gerard McMurray. And from the looks of today’s news, it’s going to be a brutal time at the movies.

Today we have word via the MPAA that the film has been slapped with an R rating for “strong disturbing violence throughout, pervasive language, some sexuality and drug use.”

Damn.

Are you excited about The First Purge? Make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

The film is directed by Gerard McMurray from a screenplay by James DeMonaco and stars Y’Lan Noel, Lex Scott Davis, Joivan Wade, Luna Lauren Velez and Marisa Tomei.

It begins July 4th, 2018.

Synopsis:

Behind every tradition lies a revolution. Next Independence Day, witness the rise of our country’s 12 hours of annual lawlessness. Welcome to the movement that began as a simple experiment: The First Purge. To push the crime rate below one percent for the rest of the year, the New Founding Fathers of America (NFFA) test a sociological theory that vents aggression for one night in one isolated community. But when the violence of oppressors meets the rage of the marginalized, the contagion will explode from the trial-city borders and spread across the nation.
