Looks like we've got a great new horror comedy coming our way called Bloodsucking Bastards. The story takes place in an office workplace environment, and it centers on a man who loses a promotion to his office rival. To make things even worse, some of his co-workers start to be killed off and turned into vampires, and he and a few of his friends have to fight to survive. It's like Office Space meets Shaun of the Dead, except with vampires instead of zombies. This looks like an insanely fun flick that I know I'll enjoy. Here's the synopsis:

A new dawn of artificial intelligence, a truck that’s literally fueled by zombies, neck-chomping co-workers, and much more. We’re back with another trio of trailers, this time featuring Chappie, Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead, and Bloodsucking Bastards.
“Every child comes into the world full of promise, and none more so than Chappie: he is gifted, special, a prodigy. Like any child, Chappie will come under the influence of his surroundings – some good, some bad – and he will rely on his heart and soul to find his way in the world and become his own man. But there’s one thing that makes Chappie different from anyone else: he is a robot. The first robot with the ability to think and feel for himself. His life, his story, will change the way the world looks at robots and humans forever.”

What happens when one of the stars from Cabin in the Woods is an employee for a Game of Thrones star? Well, I guess bloodshed can be assumed.
The first trailer for Bloodsucking Bastards premiered on Wednesday. The film stars Fran Kranz as a working stiff who gets passed over for a big promotion because the company hired the flashy, handsome big talker played by Game of Thrones‘ Pedro Pascal. The movie also stars Joel Murray (Mad Men), Yvette Yates (Inherent Vice) Joey Kern (Super Troopers) and Emma Fitzpatrick (The Collection).
Directed by Brian James O’Connell, the premise seems hyper absurd and looks destined for cult fame much like Franz’s other major starring role, Cabin in the Woods. It also includes what looks like a few crazy performances by Pascal and the rest of the cast so it could be a fun genre ride when it »

Chicago – One of the specialities of HollywoodChicago.com is the film and personality interview. The majority of these chats came through me, Patrick McDonald, and I couldn’t narrow it down to a top 10 or even a top 20. For 2014, there were 25 top interviews, and it is a diverse range of voices.
It is a privilege to get the opportunity to participate in the promotional tours, awards ceremonies, film festivals, book appearances, phoners and other lucky happenstances that feature the notable among us. To whittle down the list, I mostly thought about what was said in these interviews, whether inspirational or provocative – plus the status of the participants, whether they are up-and-coming or established.
The interview highlights are broken down by “Background and Behind-the-Scenes” and the “Memorable Quote” associated with each subject, and are often accompanied with exclusive photography by Joe Arce of HollywoodChicago.com. Four notables who just missed the »
