Star Wars: Concept Art & Gameplay From Cancelled Darth Maul Video Game

14 April 2014 1:28 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The May issue of Game Informer magazine contains an in-depth article regarding a video game that Red Fly Studio was developing for the sinister Sith Lord, Darth Maul. The character, who was played by martial artist turned actor Ray Park, made his first, brief appearance in George Lucas' Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace. Although he didn't have much screen time he did have the most memorable scene, as he battled Jedi master Qui-Gon Jinn(Liam Neeson) and Jedi apprentice Obi-Wan (Ewan McGregor). To this day, Darth Maul has remained a popular character among fans and it should come as no surprise that a video game was being developed to cash in out that interest. Sadly, the game was abandoned while it was still in its infancy. Check out a video below that contains gameplay footage, concept art and more information as to why the game never »

Fearnet Movie Review: 'Jinn'

7 April 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

One cannot let bad movies get in the way of being a horror geek. We struggle through tons of rotten movies (that usually have great promotional artwork) in order to locate the good and occasionally great pieces of genre cinema -- but sometimes a really bad horror flick is nothing short of mystifying. As in: not only is the new indie horror / thriller Jinn an outrageously bad film, but how does something so amateurish make it way into 150 theaters while great indies open in 16 theaters and VOD at the same time?   Money, that's how. The company that bankrolled the SyFy-grade Jinn (and jammed it with bizarre promotions for an automobile) also paid for a semi-wide release. So this is not a case of a distributor risking money on an indie film they really like; it's a bunch of wannabe filmmakers playing pretend. And boy does the result show on the screen. »

Film Review: ‘Jinn’

7 April 2014 9:02 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As an attention-grabbing opening installment for what’s obviously intended as an ongoing horror franchise, “Jinn” fizzles. This ponderously paced, needlessly convoluted and altogether unexceptional thriller will be fortunate to reach beyond a thin sliver of undiscriminating genre fans with its bogus mythos about ancient evil spirits bent on world domination. The promise of a sequel during the closing credits seems, at best, unduly optimistic.

After a less-than-promising prologue in 1901 India, writer-director Ajmal Zaheer Ahmad moves his melodrama to contemporary Ann Arbor, Mich., where Shawn (Dominic Rains), a hunky auto designer, and Jasmine (Serinda Swan of TV’s “Graceland” and “Breakout Kings”), his beautiful wife, are unsettled by manifestations of, if not the supernatural, then extremely clumsy home invaders.

The secret behind the scattering of their furniture is revealed when the designer receives a decades-old message — so old, it’s on a VHS tape, not a DVD or flash drive — from his late father. »

Most Memorable Tattoos Featured in Movies

7 April 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I've recently been circling around the idea of actually getting a tattoo. If I get one, it will be my first. But I've been thinking about some of the tattoos that I've seen in the movies over the years, and I started looking them up online to remind myself of what they looked like. I would never get a tattoo that I saw in a movie, it'd have to be an original design, but I was looking for a little inspiration.

While going through all the movie tattoos that I could think of, I decided to put together a list of some of the most memorable tattoos have been featured on the big screen. Here they are in no particular order.

Reign of Fire - Matthew McConaughey

How many of you forgot about how badass McConaughey was in this dragon slaying action film?! He sported some crazy cool tattoo art in it. »

Watch: Teaser Clip From Supernatural Horror ‘Jinn’

2 April 2014 12:28 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Ready for its limited release in cinemas this Friday, Exxodus Pictures is tempting us with a clip from supernatural horror, Jinn.

At just under one and a half minutes long, the clip is an exposition scene in which Shawn and Jasmine learn the ominous truth about the jinn – fiery metaphysical creatures with an axe to grind. Throw in a few priests, Biblical references and some very serious faces in the library and you’ve got what looks like typical supernatural fare. But will it be creepy freak-out or mythological mumbo-jumbo?

Jinn is in Us cinemas from 4th April. Ajmal Zaheer Ahmad writes and directs and it stars Ray ParkSerinda Swan, Faran Tahir, Dominic Rains and Walter Phelan.

Custom Camaro Firebreather Featured in New Horror Film Jinn

25 March 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Jinn, a new horror thriller written and directed by Ajmal Zaheer Ahmad, seems to have it all: ancient mythology, supernatural beings, and humans battling overwhelming forces in a classic struggle for survival. But most of all, Jinn has Firebreather, a highly customized Chevrolet Camaro built especially for use in the film.

The hero in Jinn is played by Ray Park – Darth Maul from Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace and Toad from X-Men. A former movie stuntman, Park drives Firebreather throughout the film as he takes on the Jinn, legendary supernatural creatures who walk invisibly among humans until they emerge to stir up trouble. Of course, this very special car plays an important role in an epic Bullit-meets-Underworld battle. While Park may technically be cast in the lead role, the real star of Jinn – well, for gearheads at least – is Firebreather.

Firebreather started life as a standard 2011 2Ss Camaro, »

19 March 2014 4:33 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Finally some Star Wars: Episode VII news! Not terribly surprising news mind you. But at the rate it's been coming we'll take anything won't we?

So then, lets get down to it. Here's the news from StarWars.com...

"Disney and Lucasfilm are excited to announce that principal photography on Star Wars: Episode VII, directed by J.J. Abrams, will commence May 2014, and will be based at London's historic Pinewood Studios.

This will be the first Star Wars film to start shooting in the month of May. Lucasfilm has documented the first day of principal photography for every instalment of the Star Wars saga:

‘Star Wars Episode VII’ Will Take Place 30 Years After ‘Return Of The Jedi’

19 March 2014 2:40 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

We’ve heard a lot of news, or should I rumours, revolving around Star Wars Episode VII, but there has been no solid, official releases from Lucasfilm and Disney of late, until now. StarWars.com posted an official release on the site late yesterday. A lot of the release was a timeline of the history of the first day of shooting on each of the films, but the last line of the release confirmed that Episode VII will be ‘set about 30 years after the events of Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi, and will star a trio of new young leads along with some very familiar faces. No further details on casting or plot are available at this time.’

Will the familiar faces be that of Han Solo, Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker? The timeline fits with the ageing of the actors, but we’ll have to »

Official Star Wars: Episode VII News - Setting and Principal Photography

18 March 2014 1:15 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Up until this point, most of what we’ve heard regarding Star Wars: Episode VII has been mere rumor or speculation. We all knew that with J.J. Abrams at the helm any details would be shrouded in secrecy, but this has been ridiculous. There still hasn’t been a single official casting announcement made — even for the expected return of the primary cast from the original trilogy. However, today two pieces of news have dropped straight from the house of Disney.

First off, Disney and Lucasfilm announced through their official Star Wars site that principal photography for Episode VII will begin in May. I’ve included the official announcement below, along with a timeline of all the start dates for the previous installments in the franchise.

The second piece of news comes straight from Disney CEO Bob Iger. Iger spoke at Disney’s annual shareholder meeting this morning and casually »
