First trailer arrives for Courtney Cox’s directorial debut Just Before I Go

10 April 2015 6:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The first trailer for Courtney Cox’s directorial debut Just Before I Go has debuted online, and you can watch it below…

Written by veteran TV producer/writer David Flebotte (Desperate Housewives), the film follows Ted Morgan (Sean William-Scott), a “down-on-his-luck average joe who chooses to end his life but is first compelled to return home for one last time and revisit all the horrible people from his past.”

Ted Morgan (Seann Willian Scott) has been treading water for most of his life. After his wife leaves him, Ted realizes he has nothing left to live for. Summoning the courage for one last act, Ted decides to go home and face the people he feels are responsible for creating the shell of a person he has become. But life is tricky. The more determined Ted is to confront his demons, to get closure, and to withdraw from his family, the »

Phil Lord and Christopher Miller hint at ’23 Jump Street’ plans

7 April 2015 9:58 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are in especially high demand, because it appears now as though the duo can work franchise magic, taking properties that no one expects to be good and turning them into gold. This week there were rumors that DC wants the pair to direct The Flash movie, not to mention one of the Ghostbusters reboots.

One franchise they are still circling is the Jump Street franchise. As you can in the Nsfw clip see above, 22 Jump Street had a hilariously creative ending, imagining a scenario in which increasingly absurd Jump Street sequels would come out endlessly, taking Schmidt and Jenko to everywhere from culinary school to dance academy, and at one point even including Seth Rogen (Contract disputes? What are you talking about?).

Topless Robot, via /Film, is reporting from WonderCon 2015 that Lord and Miller supposedly have plans to make those joke films more than just »

Dead Rising: Watchtower Review

31 March 2015 10:52 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

I’ll confess that the Dead Rising franchise is near and dear to my heart, ever since I logged countless hours running around the Willamette Parkview Mall with a katana and a “protective” horse-head mask. Boasting insane contraptions, hordes of ferocious zombies, and psychopathic boss battles, the original game features enough cinematic fodder to string together its own wacky animated feature, but the thought of a live-action Dead Rising movie still packed an exciting punch. Thus, Dead Rising: Watchtower was born.

Unlike the games, Watchtower follows the exploits of a young internet journalist named Chase Carter (Jesse Metcalfe). Frank West (Rob Riggle) is a part of the chaos, but he watches as a zombie quarantine goes horribly awry form the safety of a television news room. Chase is the one who finds himself caught in the action, as a new Zombrex-proof virus strain traps the infected inside an East Mission »

The zombie apocalypse came to life on the Sony Pictures Studios lot on Wednesday night at the world premiere of “Dead Rising: Watchtower,” an original feature film by Crackle, Sony’s streaming network.

First Full-Length Trailer Arrives For Dead Rising: Watchtower

9 March 2015 2:05 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The fevered excitement of a potential zombie apocalypse is a perfect mining ground for an array of entertainment arenas. From TV shows, video games and movies, there’s never been a better time to pronounce your love of those flesh-gobbling undead shufflers than turning to a screen near you. While AMC’s The Walking Dead has commandeered the small screen for several years now, Legendary are hoping to take a swipe at the zombie flagship with their effort, Dead Rising: Watchtower.

Zach Lipovsky’s live-action adaptation showcases its roots in this first full-length trailer, which presents a mix of violent splatter-movie motifs and tongue-in-cheek comedy. In this case, its loyalty isn’t to a novel or comic book, but to the best-selling video game series which has so far shifted over 7.6 million units worldwide.

Starring Jesse Metcalf, Dennis Haysbert and Virginia Madsen, Dead Rising: Watchtower explores familiar territory to most »

Dead Rising: Watchtower Unveils Gory First Clip

4 March 2015 8:31 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With little over three weeks until its premiere, Crackle has debuted the first clip for Zach Lipovsky’s live-action adaptation, Dead Rising: Watchtower.

As with the vast majority of other entries into the genre, this snippet features that scene; where the infected spanner gets thrown into the works and all hell breaks loose. Starring Jesse Metcalfe and Keegan Connor Tracy, we see the show’s main characters begin to piece together the puzzle to discover that, much like the title suggests, the dead are indeed beginning to rise up for a spot of lunch.

Mixing some interesting cinematography with first-person shots, Dead Rising: Watchtower is decidedly low-key, and that’s precisely the angle Lipovsky is aiming for. The fact that his adaptation is hitting the web as a digital release will no doubt allow for more creative freedom outside of the typical studio system, and we hope that the writing »
