March 28th Blu-ray & DVD Releases Include Wishmaster Collection, A Monster Calls

5 hours ago | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Well, March is definitely “going out like a lamb” (as the old saying goes) when it comes to horror and sci-fi home entertainment releases, as there are only several different titles coming home this Tuesday.

Universal Studios is releasing J.A. Bayona’s heartbreaking modern fable, A Monster Calls, to both Blu-ray and DVD this week, and if you're a cult film fan, then you have a few fun movies to look forward to adding to your home collections: Witchtrap, Venom, and the four-film collection for Wishmaster, a new addition to the Vestron Video Collector’s Series.

Other notable releases for March 28th include Mortuary Massacre, The Abduction of Jennifer Grayson, Park Chan-Wook's The Handmaiden (which finally gets the Blu-ray treatment), and for the little monster fans, Monster High: Electrified.

A Monster Calls (Universal Studios Home Entertainment, Blu/DVD/Digital HD & DVD)

No One Can Hear You Scream: Life and Death in Space Horror

26 March 2017 1:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tony Black on space horror…

The release this week of Life, the new science-fiction horror film from Daniel Espinosa, may herald for many a revelation if they’re unfamiliar with a sub-genre all of its own – the space horror movie. Espinosa’s film is entertaining, if workmanlike, and will be enjoyed primarily by people unfamiliar with the cavalcade of pictures it pilfers from across its running time, but can it really hold a candle to the movies it’s professing to update and sit alongside? That’s arguable.

What matters is the aforementioned sub-genre it now sits within, as it’s as rich and full as the wide variety of other sub-genres in horror or indeed science-fiction. Life, like many other movies we’ll mention here, owes its existence and a huge debt to what may not have been the first sci-fi horror movie, but is undoubtedly still the grandmaster. »

Graphic Novel Review: ‘The Assignment’

24 March 2017 5:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Written by Walter Hill, Dennis Hamill | Adapted by Matz | Art by Jef | Published by Titan Comics

Can lightning strike twice? The team of Walter Hill, Matz, and Jef did a great job on their Triggerman book, a book I really enjoyed reading earlier this year. This title, The Assignment, originally came out as a three issue adaptation of a Walter Hill screenplay. The film that came from said screenplay, The Assignment (or Tomboy, as called elsewhere – including on iTunes, where the film has just been released in the UK) came out to somewhat mixed reviews last year, despite starring Michelle Rodriguez and Sigourney Weaver. If nothing else, my interest because of all this was certainly high enough to give this book a go.

As you would expect with a Walter Hill piece of work, we open with a very stylish piece of violence. Meet Frank Kitchen, a hitman. One of the best in fact. »

“Marvel’s The Defenders follows Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. A quartet of singular heroes with one common goal – to save New York City. This is the story of four solitary figures, burdened with their own personal challenges, who realize they just might be stronger when teamed together.”

Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Jessica Jones – four NYC drifters imbued with superhuman abilities that have each received their own standalone series, with Danny Rand being the final Defender to enter the fray. Indeed, Marvel and Netflix’s fourth superhero solo series premiered late last week to decidedly mixed reviews, but both parties will soon draw our collective attention toward The Defenders.

It’s been a long time coming, but Marvel’s team-up series is inching closer and closer to its summer 2017 premiere, and we now have word that filming has wrapped on the inaugural season. Word comes by way of Instagram (via Cbm), where a post from user ‘ycatscraftservice’ reveals a new piece of promo art for The Defenders in which you’ll find Alexandra (Sigourney Weaver) casting a looming shadow over those four aforementioned heroes. »

The Defenders look to be in a spot of trouble in latest set video

17 March 2017 9:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As Marvel’s latest series Iron Fist hits Netflix, production continues in New York City on the upcoming team-up show The Defenders, and a new set video has arrived online which shows the street level heroes (minus Daredevil) looking in pretty bad shape. Check it out here…

Ridley Scott and Cast Drop Alien: Covenant Secrets at SXSW

16 March 2017 1:47 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ridley Scott, at the age of 79-years-old, is a man who is showing absolutely no signs of slowing down. After directing The Martian, his most critically and financially successful movie in more than 15 years, he is returning to the world of Alien with the highly-anticipated Alien: Covenant. Unlike Prometheus, this movie is not just going to be taking place within that same universe with loose ties to the Alien mythology. This is a true-to-form Alien movie and if Ridley Scott has his way, it will be the first of many.

I was lucky enough to participate in a roundtable discussion with Sir Ridley Scott at SXSW about Alien: Covenant. We were also joined by cast members Katherine Waterston and Danny McBride, who seemed just as pleased to be there as everyone else. The second a man like Ridley Scott starts talking, everyone listens. He speaks quietly yet confidently and says what he wants. »

Claire Temple Lends A Helping Hand (Again) In New Iron Fist Clip; Finn Jones Teases A “Bigger Threat” Ahead Of The Defenders

16 March 2017 8:02 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Spare a thought for Claire Temple. Ever since Daredevil made a beeline for Netflix two whole years ago, Rosario Dawson’s kind-hearted nurse has patched up the Man Without Fear and Mike Colter’s Hero for Hire, not to mention giving some much-needed advice to the prickly Jessica Jones.

But on March 17th, the final Defender, Iron Fist, will call upon Claire Temple for medical aid, and a new clip from IGN sheds light on the first encounter between Temple and Danny Rand’s hero-in-training. Is Marvel’s steadfast supporting player slowly beginning to complete her transition to Night Nurse? It’s the one rumor that continues to do the rounds online, but until we hear official confirmation one way or another, you can get a better sense of Claire and Danny’s dynamic up above.

The Defenders Run From A Mysterious Foe In This New Set Video

14 March 2017 10:12 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The reviews for Marvel and Netflix’s Iron Fist have been less than stellar, but that’s unlikely to deter fans from checking it out when it premieres this Friday, and it certainly hasn’t dulled any of the hype for their street-level superhero team-up show, The Defenders, which recently recommenced production in New York City after a break in filming.

The folks over at ComicCon.news were on hand for a scene that was being shot last night and have now shared some footage online. It’s a little blurry, but we can make out Luke Cage (Mike Colter), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Danny Rand (Finn Jones), and Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick) rushing what appears to be a severely injured Misty Knight (Simone Missick) to safety. The fact that they’re shooting in front of a huge green screen would suggest that they’re running from something, but what »

‘Alien: Covenant’: Ridley Scott and Katherine Waterston Discuss the Series’ Newest Kickass Female Lead – Watch

13 March 2017 7:14 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The annual SXSW Film Festival may specialize in screening innovative, low-budget films, but the Austin-set fest also relishes its starry premieres, which give a hip home to a handful of Hollywood’s most anticipated films. One clear highlights of this year’s lineup was a combination of those two ideals, a special screening of the sci-fi classic “Alien.” Prior to the film, filmmaker Ridley Scott, who directed the first “Alien” film way back in 1979, discussed and showed clips from his upcoming “Alien: Covenant.” The next film in the sci-fi franchise is being released on May 19 and serves as the sixth installment in the series.

“My goals have changed, my mantra has always been to scare the living shit out of you,” said Scott right before the lights dimmed to show the raucous, sold out crowd scenes from “Covenant.”

Win Tomboy on DVD

13 March 2017 1:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Competitions

To mark the release of Tomboy on 3rd April, we’ve been given 3 copies to give away on DVD.

Frank Kitchen is an assassin at the top of his game. When he’s double-crossed by a group of ruthless gangsters he falls into the hands of a rogue surgeon, known only as The Doctor, who transforms him into a woman against his will. Aided by a nurse with her own set of secrets, Frank the hitman becomes Tomboy the hitwoman and revenge is the first thing on her mind…

Starring action cinema’s star du jour Michelle Rodriguez (Furious 7, Machete Kills) as Frank/Tomboy and featuring celluloid royalty in the form of Sigourney Weaver (Alien, Avatar) as The Doctor, Tomboy is an action adventure you’ll never forget.

Also starring Anthony Lapaglia (TV’s Without A Trace, The Eichmann Show) and Tony Shaloub (TV’s Monk, Spy Kids »

Ridley Scott’s ‘Alien: Covenant’ Makes SXSW Scream

10 March 2017 11:46 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As he took the stage of the Paramount Theatre on Friday night, Ridley Scott admitted this was his first trip to Austin. He complimented the local food as good and the tequila as even better. But this wasn’t a holiday for the prolific 79-year-old director.

Scott was at SXSW to introduce 15 minutes of footage from “Alien: Convenant,” the sixth installment of the Twentieth Century Fox tentpole, which opens on May 19. “My mantra has always been to scare the living sh-t out of you,” he said, just as the lights dimmed.

That wasn’t an empty promise. Judging from the Austin crowd–a fairly accurate bellwether for box office success–“Alien Covenant” is now poised to be one of the biggest hits of the summer. The reaction among the fanboys (and girls) was uniformly enthusiastic, with screams and hoots erupting in the theater.

Ridley Scott Shuts Down Ripley's Mom Rumor in Alien: Covenant

10 March 2017 1:12 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

There is still a lot of mystery surrounding Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant, which is probably the way a lot of fans want it to be at this point. However, we can now put one big mystery to bed. Well, maybe not so much a mystery as it was a rumor. Either way, we can definitively say that Katherine Waterston's character Daniels is not related to Sigourney Weaver's character Ripley from the original Alien.

Ridley Scott recently participated in a roundtable discussion about Alien: Covenant at SXSW in Austin. I was lucky enough to be at the roundtable and at one point the director was asked point blank whether or not Daniels was related to Ripley, which has been a popular theory up to this point. The director made it clear that isn't going to be the case, but did imply that it was at least brought up at one point or another. »

Avatar 2 Delayed Again, Won't Arrive in 2018

10 March 2017 11:48 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last we heard about the long-awaited Avatar 2 is that director James Cameron is looking to start production this summer on the long-awaited sequel, with Avatar 3, Avatar 4 and Avatar 5 also confirmed to be shot at the same time. While the August 15 production start date has not been confirmed by the studio, even if the director does make that date, he recently revealed that the Christmas 2018 date will not be made. As of now, there is no official release schedule in place, but if production does in fact start soon, we may finally get some official updates.

Back in December, Sigourney Weaver hinted in an interview that the sequel may be delayed beyond 2018, but we never heard anything official from the studio or James Cameron. The Star caught up with James Cameron, who was promoting his new documentary Atlantis Rising, which debuts on Discovery Sunday, March 12, where he »

Jennifer Lopez Avoids Answering Drake Proposal Question

9 March 2017 5:47 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Jennifer Lopez is willing to dish on many aspects of her life, but there are some that remain under wraps. While appearing on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen Wednesday, Lopez and Shades of Blue co-star Ray Liotta played a game of "Plead the Fifth." This time, however, the rules changed. Liotta was in the hot seat, but should he choose to plead the fifth, host Andy Cohen would turn his targeted questions to Lopez. After revealing Sigourney Weaver was his worst onscreen kiss and Clint Eastwood was the most "overrated" actor of the 1980s, Liotta had to plead the fifth on naming his favorite and least favorite Lopez songs. Awkward! "He's been to my Vegas show," Lopez noted. »

J.A. Bayona reveals first look image from Jurassic World 2

9 March 2017 1:39 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

Director J. A Bayona has taken to social media to reveal the first look image of his venture into the Jurassic World 2 sequel revealing his darker visual tones in the ominous image to the delight of many of his twitter followers.

Related: J.A. Bayona Interview on A Monster Calls

The image, which depicts a lone girl – assuming this is the returning Dallas Bryce Howard as Claire Dearing as a child – standing with her back to camera in a museum surrounded by the skeletal forms of dinosaurs. The picture has an unnerving ambience in its structure which keeps fans of the Jurassic franchise guessing at its yet unveiled plot. Could this image also reveal what we can expect from the plot? We are thinking some kind of flashback sequence may just be on the cards, just speculation of course but tell us what you think.

Back in 2012, heralded filmmaker Ridley Scott finally made his long-awaited return to the Alien franchise with Prometheus, which received mixed reviews but still paved the way for this summer's Alien: Covenant. It has already been confirmed that Alien: Covenant will start a new trilogy of sci-fi films, that will eventually connect to Ridley Scott's original classic Alien. But now it seems the director is thinking even bigger. Ridley Scott revealed during a new interview that he is actually planning six more movies after Alien: Covenant. Here's what he had to say below.

"If you really want a franchise, I can keep cranking it for another six. I'm not going to close it down again. No way."

The filmmaker revealed this during an on-set interview with the Syndey Morning Herald while production was still under way. After directing the 1979 classic Alien, he handed the reins over to James Cameron for the iconic 1986 sequel Aliens, »

Ridley Scott is far from finished making “Alien” movies after his upcoming “Alien: Covenant,” which opens in theaters May 19.

Alien: Covenant Red Band Trailer Reveals Gory New Footage

3 March 2017 8:26 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

They've all sacrificed so much to be a part of Covenant. But they really have no idea what's in store. Earlier this week, 20th Century Fox unleashed the second trailer for Alien: Covenant. Today, we get a second version of this trailer that has been marked Red Band by the MPAA. Which means it comes packed with a few extra moments of blood and gore.

This latest trailer follows the same structure as the one released earlier in the week. But it does have a couple of shots that were deemed to over the top for PG-13 audiences. This is the trailer that will be screening with Logan throughout the weekend. But you don't need to buy a ticket, as we have the gloriously blood sneak peek in all its glory right here for you to enjoy.

There are basically two new scenes included here. The first shot comes after »
