Watch the First 18 Minutes of Tales of an Ancient Empire

12 December 2011 11:34 AM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Albert Pyun's long gestating Tales of an Ancient Empire has been picked up for distribution by Liongate, but apparently the version we'll all be able to see starting January 24th isn't exactly the director's own vision for the film so he's decided to release the first 18 minutes of his cut for comparison's sake. Check it out!

Synopsis:

The sword and sorcery epic, written by Cynthia Curnan, tells the story of a princess forced on a quest to recruit the greatest warriors of the ancient world to save her kingdom from a demonic sorceress. But the odyssey to find them reveals a secret past for all.

Michael Pare plays "Oda", father of Kevin Sorbo's character - Aedan - as well as Victoria Maurette's Kara (via Whitney Able's Xia - the vampire sorceress). He also fathers Princess Tanis (Melissa Ordway) and Rajan (Janelle Taylor) amongst others. The film »

It's been making the festival rounds lately, and in advance of its release around the world soon, an international trailer has hit the Internet for Albert Pyun's long awaited Tales of an Ancient Empire, and of course we have it for you right here!

The trailer was edited by Daniel Gutierrez, and as Pyun said on his Albert Pyun Movies Facebook page, "I really like Daniel's creative point of view!" Check it out below and see if you agree with him.

Exclusive: New Artwork, Casting, and Distro News - Tales of an Ancient Empire

15 June 2011 9:23 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Many things are happening for Albert Pyun's latest film Tales of an Ancient Empire, and they are all good. The flick has landed some new players, some new eye candy, and even some solid distro. Read on for the details.

In terms of casting Pyun dropped the following on us:

Michael Pare plays "Oda", father of Kevin Sorbo's character - Aedan - as well as Victoria Maurette's Kara (via Whitney Able's Xia - the vampire sorceress). He also fathers Princess Tanis (Melissa Ordway) and Rajan (Janelle Taylor) amongst others. The film is about how Oda's womanizing has created both the extreme good and evil in the world. And how parental abandonment colors each character's life and behavior. And Sorbo's character - Aedan - has a child with his half-human/half-vampire half-sister Kara - Hekate - played by newcomer Cazzy Golomb. Hekate narrates Tales and becomes one »

Infection 2 to Commence Production in Late March

23 February 2011 12:42 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

One of the earliest (and best) cinéma-vérité films to cross our desks was Albert Pyun's 2005 one-take wonder Infection, which was renamed Invasion (review here) for its DVD release, so you can bet our ears perked up today when we learned a sequel is on its way!

Here's what director Pyun told us, "We begin shooting Infection (aka Invasion) 2 in Nevada on March 28. The original cast is back (Jenny Dare Paulin, Norbert Weisser, Scott Paulin, Morgan Weisser, Alan Abelew) to continue the struggle against the spread of infection."

Pyun adds that additional casting is being done by Norbert Weisser and includes a much bigger cast and much more action and creatures than the original film.

He continues, "Again, it will be a single unedited shot that will follow the infection into a small town. It will be set in the time period between 1:40 Am (when the first film ended) and 3:00 Am. »
