Castlevania Season 1 Review

9 July 2017 2:44 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A good video game adaptation is like a white peacock: they’re very rare, but they’re not impossible to find. For nearly twenty years, Hollywood has tried — often in vain — to mend the gap between gamers and filmgoers, which quickly resulted in some of the most spectacularly ill-fated slices of cinema to arrive in the 21st century.

The reasoning is sound: it’s hard to capture the same rush one feels during their favorite game when you take the controller out of the equation. Films like Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and Wreck-It Ralph proved to be better adaptations than most (despite the fact that they’re, you know, not based on actual games) because they capture the high energy and emotional excitement of playing your favorite titles while also simultaneously providing excellent action beats, gorgeous set pieces and fantastically well-realized characters.

‘Castlevania’ Review: Netflix’s Bleak, Violent Animated Series Wrestles With Evil on a Giant Scale

7 July 2017 12:46 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Staying alive in the year 1455 was not an easy task.

As if the lack of medical advances and the whims of deadly diseases weren’t enough, “Castlevania,” the latest Netflix animated series from writer Warren Ellis, adds on the persistent spectre of bloodthirsty hellbeasts bent on destroying all of humankind.

It’s the ideal example of the series attempting to tap into universal themes to amp up the frights originally mined in the Konami video game series. This onscreen world might hold a special place for those who’ve been immersed since its premiere in 1986, but as a work of episodic storytelling, it takes much of its four episodes to firmly establish the kind of series it will be moving forward. (“Castlevania” was renewed for Season 2 the morning Season 1 debuted.)

Count Dracula Looms Over Creepy New Action Shots For Netflix’s Castlevania Series

7 July 2017 8:50 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Few would argue that July 7th belongs to Spider-Man: Homecoming, but over on Netflix, there’s another high-profile release ready to take flight, and it ought to appeal to those old-school gamers pining for some fantastical nostalgia.

Its name? Castlevania, a four-part animated series conceived by Warren Ellis, Kevin Kolde, Fred Seibert, and Dredd producer Adi Shankar. Split across two seasons – the second and seemingly conclusive chapter will air via Netflix in 2018 – Castlevania stays true to the Konami classic in that it follows the disgraced Belmont clan as they rise up against Count Dracula in order to bring peace to Transylvania.

Netflix’s Castlevania Series Lifts The Curtain On Its Impressive Voice Cast

29 June 2017 12:30 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s rather fitting that Netflix’s latest Castlevania-related announcement, one which involves the show’s starry voice cast, comes by way of Dracula himself – or at least the actor on board to play the supernatural menace.

As you’ll see from the video above, that task has fallen at the feet of Graham McTavish (Outlander, The Hobbit), who stands alongside the show’s producer and all-around figurehead, Adi Shankar (Dredd).

Even if you only have a passing interest in Konami’s video game classic, you’ll know that Castlevania largely centers on the Belmont clan and their seemingly never-ending quest to defeat Count Dracula and bring a sense of peace to Transylvania and the rest of Eastern Europe. Leading that revolt against Vlad Dracula Tepe and his wicked ways is Richard Armitage. He’ll voice vampire hunter Trevor Belmont in Netflix’s adaptation, which is a major coup »

Cast list for Netflix’s Castlevania series includes Richard Armitage, Graham McTavish, James Callis, and more

29 June 2017 7:22 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Producer Adi Shankar has just posted a YouTube video formally announcing the voice actors for his animated Castlevania series. Joined by actor Graham McTavish, who will be voicing Dracula in the series, the duo announced a full cast that includes Richard Armitage (Trevor Belmont), and James Callis (Alucard). Check out the video below for the full announcement…

Quite an impressive cast for Netflix’s first dip into the video game realm. Both Graham McTavish and Richard Armitage had sizeable parts in The Hobbit trilogy, with McTavish having a history of lending his voice to video games (The Order: 1886); Armitage recently portrayed “The Great Red DragonFrancis Dolarhyde in the last season of NBC’s Hannibal to chilling effect. You may also recall James Callis’ incredible performance as Gaius Baltar in Syfy’s hit series Battlestar Galactica. Rounding out the cast are Alejandra Reynoso (Sypha), Emily Swallow (Lisa Tepes), Matt Frewer »

Official Trailer for Neo-Noir, Supernatural Indie Horror Film 'Residue'

28 April 2017 7:34 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Did you, by chance, open the book?" XLrator Media has debuted the first official trailer for an interesting genre mashup titled Residue, a neo-noir thriller mixed with supernatural horror. The story follows a private investigator who reads a book of sinister origins owned by seedy crime lord. This (think Evil Dead) puts his daughter and himself in a fight for their lives, and their eternal souls. Starring James Clayton as Luke Harding, as well as Matt Frewer, Michael Matic, Costas Mandylor, Alika Autran, Dan Payne, William B. Davis, Elysia Rotaru, and Taylor Hickson as his daughter Angelina. This is a very weird trailer with tons of crazy things going on. I can't even make sense of it. The big reveals don't come until the final few seconds; beyond that, it's a mess of footage and glimpses and wacky things happening. Take a look. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Rusty Nixon's Residue, »
