'SuperGrid' begins production in Saskatchewan
Exclusive: Raven Banner to handle worldwide sales, distribute in Canada.

Principal photography has begun in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan on SuperGrid, the apocalyptic road movie from the creators of WolfCop.

Regina-based producer Hugh Patterson has teamed up with Trinni Franke and director Lowell Dean (pictured at right), who directed horror-comedies WolfCop and Another WolfCop. Toronto-based Raven Banner handles worldwide sales and will distribute in Canada.

SuperGrid is set in a near future where mining conglomerates have turned Canada into a wasteland. Two brothers must travel the same road that claimed their sister’s life in their quest to deliver mysterious cargo. En route they must contend with road pirates, rebel gangs, and each other.

Leo Fafard of WolfCop stars alongside Marshall Williams, Tinsel Korey, Natalie Krill, Fei Ren, former WWE wrestler Jay Reso, and Regina natives Amy Matysio, Daniel Maslany, and Laura Abramsen. SuperGrid is funded by Telefilm and Creative Saskatchewan and the producers anticipate a 2018 release

‘Haven: Season 5 Volume 2 – The Final Episodes’ Review

If you are going to watch a television show, the worst time to start is in its final episodes. I found myself doing this though for the recent release of Haven: Season 5 Volume 2 – The Final Episodes. What I found though was a show that I really enjoyed and will be investing my time in, from the beginning.

Haven is a cursed town where “troubled” people have mysterious powers that often cause trouble for the people who are trying to protect it. As the story nears its end a mysterious fog has cut the town off from the rest of the world and a showdown is looming with the mysterious “Croatoan” that appears to be on its way.

While it felt strange that Haven: Season 5 Volume 2 – The Final Episodes gets into the story straight away, it is telling of Syfy’s aggressive advertising for the show that I had

WWE: The Future For The Tag Division

WWE Raw was terrible this week – and had more pointless, “let’s fill time” matches yet again. I can’t believe Team Hell No are still facing Prime Time Players and more to the point, I can’t believe a team as fun as Ptp are still losing to Team Hell No.

PTPs deserve a genuine lengthy programme with someone, they could, given the right time and backstage segments to develop relationships, become a likeable heel tag team alá Edge & Christian. Same can be said for The Rhodes Scholars, A tag team with unlimited potential and possibly two future World Champions.

The Tag Team titles are currently held by Team Hell No, Although I have enjoyed their run immensely its time they gave the titles up. Daniel Bryan and Kane don’t need the Tag Team Titles to elevate them to the next level. The logical step seems to be

WWE Wrestlemania 29: Christian Spotted Backstage

Former WWE Tag Team, Intercontinental and World Heavyweight Champion Christian has been spotted backstage at the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey just hours before WrestleMania 29 kicks off live.

Christian has been on WWE’s injured reserve list since last year after he suffered an aggravated shoulder injury shortly after appearing in the Smackdown brand’s Money In The Bank Ladder Match and dropping his Intercontinental Championship to The Miz shortly after. Despite rumours that he would make his return at this year’s Royal Rumble PPV Christian – real name William Jason Reso – has remained away from the WWE spotlight and has not been seen anywhere until earlier this week when fans saw him sneaking into WWE’s hotel of choice in the middle of the night.

Christian’s decision to arrive under cover of darkness made many fans speculate he was in town as a surprise for

Booking WWE vs Tna PPV

Hands up if you remember the WCW Invasion angle back when WWE owner Vince McMahon bought the failing company back in 2001. Now hands up if you were happy with the way Vince and co. handled the whole storyline. Not many of you I’ll bet. What could easily have been the biggest angle in the history of professional wrestling turned into a massive vanity project for the company’s head honcho who outright refused to see those boys from “Dubbya See Dubbya” get the better of any of his creations. It was a huge mistake.

A decade has passed since the horrible Invasion PPV and no one cares to discuss it. Plenty of ex-wcw guys recovered from the failed Invasion (Booker T for example) but many more just faded away into obscurity or simply did not take part (Kevin Nash, Hulk Hogan, Goldberg, Sting). But what if a similar angle

WWE: Could The Part-Timers Do More?

There is and always has been something going on in wrestling that the fans can enjoy. Wrestlemania 29 is just on the horizon. This means the return of several part-time superstars to our TV screens until the big event is in the history books.

Wrestlemania is always an exciting time for us fans as the WWE is usually pulling out all the stops to entice us to spend our money on the biggest pay per view of the year. This year we may very well see the end of the feud between The Rock and John Cena as the WWE title will be defended between the two, Triple H looks for redemption against Brock Lesnar after his loss to the former Ufc champion at Summerslam last year and we will see The Undertaker defend his streak against ‘The Best in The World’ Cm Punk. Not only that but there are

Review: WWE - The Attitude Era

Watching the WWE’s The Attitude Era release made me realise three things about what many (myself included) still consider to be the finest period in the company's long and (mostly) illustrious history.

The first was that its raw, gritty and at times envelope pushing content was a world away from the sanitised, family friendly fare that the WWE delivers today. Bad language, bad behaviour, (blurred) nudity, borderline sexism and homophobia, and pure unadulterated rebellion were the order of the day in the dying years of the twentieth century, though to be fair the WWE (or WWF as it still was back then) made no attempt to disguise the fact that they were pursuing the male college demographic, even giving their shows a suitable TV-14 rating and warning viewers about the potential content.

The second thing that stood out was that the Superstars of the era were genuinely larger than life personalities,

Mad Max's Weekend Movie Guide: 'Jack the Giant Slayer' & More

"If you figure a way to live without serving a master, any master, then let the rest of us know, will you? For you'd be the first person in the history of the world." – Philip Seymour Hoffman, 'The Master'

Greetings from the apocalypse! This week finds me once again walking down memory lane as I recall two new movies I visited the sets of and, as usual, childhood traumas. Do those traumas involve giants? Do I seek the therapy I so desperately need? Read on …

Friday, March 1

Okay, so in case you haven't heard already, "21 and Over" is basically the same movie as "The Hangover," as evidenced by our informative chart. I had the honor of touring the set of this raunchy sex/alcohol poisoning comedy in Seattle around 2011 or so (I can't quite remember for some reason) and got to watch Justin Chon ride a mechanical buffalo while projectile vomiting.

Blu-ray Review: WWE – The Attitude Era

Wrestling fans whether it be ones that like WWE, like Tna, Roh or any other smaller companies out there have to admit there was a time when the WWE were at the top of the game, hell Tna didn’t even exist yet. It was the time of the Monday night rating wars when both Tna and WWE (or WWF as it was known back then) had to up their game to show they were the best, to get that precious Nielsen rating to prove they were the best wrestling company. We all know the WWE Attitude era, it was even brought back in the WWE ’13 game because it’s still a time that is popular with a large selection of the fans. This is why The Attitude Era is such a fun set of discs to watch.

WWE: Where Does Jack Swagger Fit On The Road To WrestleMania?

When Jack Swagger debuted in WWE, it seemed like the former Ncaa star was primed for success, being pushed right off the bat on the Ecw brand with a six month long undefeated streak and winning the Ecw World Heavyweight Championship just over five months after his debut.

After a successful run in Ecw, Swagger was moved to the Raw brand, where he’d win the Money in the Bank ladder match at WrestleMania Xxvi, granting him a future World Title shot over the course of that year. “The All-American American” cashed in his contract five days later on April 2, 2010, defeating Chris Jericho to capture his first and currently only World Heavyweight Championship.

After a poorly booked 82-day reign, Swagger began to spiral down the WWE ladder, eventually forming a partnership with Michael Cole as a part of the Texan commentator’s feud with Jerry “The King” Lawler leading up to WrestleMania Xxvii.

Joss Whedon is Right: Zombies are the most Political of Monsters

You may have seen recently that Joss Whedon “endorsed“ Mitt Romney for President saying, “You know, like a lot of liberal Americans, I was excited when Barack Obama took office four years ago. But it’s a very different world now. And Mitt Romney is a very different candidate. One with the vision and determination to cut through business-as-usual politics and finally put this country back on the path to the zombie apocalypse.”

Joss Whedon is absolutely right to invoke zombies in a political discussion, because zombies are the most political of monsters. Or to put it another way, Zombie films are the most political of all horror films.







Wait. What?

Let me explain.

Roger Ebert, in his review of Zombieland, wrote about Zombies:

Vampires make a certain amount of sense to me, but zombies not so much. What’s their purpose? Why do they always look so bad? Can

WWE: 5 Reasons Fans Hate John Cena

On June 27th 2002, a fresh-faced 25-year-old made his WWE debut. In his first match, he impressed fans with his sheer determination and ruthless aggression as he came up short against Kurt Angle. That wrestler was John Cena.

He found his place as an arrogant rapper, who earned the respect of the crowd with positive matches against talents like Angle, Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker. Like the anti-heroes before him, the cheers slowly started to outweigh the boos – in part due to his natural charisma – and by the end of 2004 it was clear that he was ready for the WWE Championship. He, along with Batista, ushered in a new generation of wrestlers when Cena defeated Jbl for the title at WrestleMania 21 and Batista defeated Triple H for the World Heavyweight Title.

Over the next seven years Cena collected a further 11 world titles, which included a 380-day reign which made him

WWE Raw Results 13/8/12 – Brock Lesnar Breaks Shawn Michaels’ Arm

Last night’s WWE Raw results from the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.

Michael Cole and Jerry “The King” Lawler are on commentary…

Post-match, Bryan applied the “No Lock” on Punk and wouldn’t let go. Show takes advantage and drops an elbow on Punk while he is down. John Cena runs in and clotheslines the Big Show out of the ring. Bryan attacks Cena but Cena fights back and dumps him to the floor and cleans house as Punk looks on.
