Guy Pearce Travels the Wasteland in Lorne [Trailer]
27 November 2015 2:31 PM, PST
Aussie newcomer Jesse Leaman recently wrapped production on an existential post-apocalyptic short film starring Guy Pearce called Lorne. The slow burn first trailer for the film that ends in a bang showcases a great deal of confidence and I can't wait to see the whole short at some point.
The short was written by Taylor Adams based on Leaman's story idea.
Lorne, a wasteland traveler dealing with the oppressing boundaries of isolation, is confronted by a mysterious stranger, who helps him realize his existential fears.
More as it comes, folks!

Haunting Trailer for Canadian Thriller The Demons
25 November 2015 11:38 AM, PST
This much-buzzed French Canadian thriller from director Philippe Lesage is a contender for the Whistler Film Festival's Borsos Competition For Best Canadian Feature in the Canadian Vanguard section and the first French-language trailer certainly makes a case that The Demons is one to watch out for.
Here's what the official Whistler description has to say about the film: "Lesage does wonders working with a cast of mostly children, but his approach to the darker material is truly original and frightening. This is the director's second non-documentary feature, but the keen observational eye that he has developed in his documentary work serves him well here.
The Demons marks the arrival of a fiercely original new directorial talent. The film won the Quebec Critics Associati [Continued ...] »

It is the year....meh- a badass post apocalyptic adventure of epic proportions.
No release dates yet for the flick, but we'll keep y [Continued ...] »
Cat's Cradle Adaptation Headed to FX as Limited Series
24 November 2015 3:54 PM, PST
It's been a really long time since we've seen any updates about an adaptation of Kurt Vonnegut's "Cat's Cradle." The last we heard, the project, a satire about the arms race which was first published in 1963, was being considered as a feature film but it looks like there's a different future in the cards for this adaptation and so far, it's looking like a great adapation to come.
Last week FX confirmed that it was moving ahead with "Cat's Cradle" as a limited series so rather than a 2 hour movie, we're likely to get anywhere between 3 and 10 hours of material. As a bonus bit of good news, the adaptation is being handled by Noah Hawley who has quickly made a name for himself with his adaptation of [Continued ...] »
Weirdly Wonderful Trailer for Weirdly Wonderful Arabian Nights
24 November 2015 3:14 PM, PST
The movies were heralded as some sort of second coming and to be sure, they're an interesting trilogy which broaches the subject of the economic collapse in Europe, the bailouts, concessions and how one little country dealt with (and continues to deal with) the fallout. In short Arabian Nights is a spectacular microcosm of the effects of economic sanctions. At least that's what it starts off as in The Restless One. The Desolate One meanders into a collection of stories which feel undercooked in comparison to the first entry – so much so that I don't actually re [Continued ...] »
Blomkamp's Alien Would Bring Newt Back to Life
23 November 2015 1:54 PM, PST
Alien fans are living through a funny time. As Ridley Scott explores his "prequel" movies, Neil Blomkamp forges ahead with his delayed, but-feels-inevitable, Alien movie which will apparently completely ignore Alien 3 and Alien Resurrection.
The big news? According to Michael Biehn, Blomkamp will see Newt back as his film's 27 year-old heroine.
In an interview with Icons of Fright, Biehn went into some details:
“They’re planning on bringing me and Newt back and at this point Newt will be around twenty-seven years old. I [Continued ...] »

Vin Diesel Announces New Riddick Sequel + TV Show
23 November 2015 7:44 AM, PST
While Chronicles of Riddick had flashes of old fashioned space opera goodness, it was mostly a misstep in a series with two other pretty amazing entries in Pitch Black and Riddick. And even though the last film didn't exactly light the world on fire at the box office, it appears there's a lot more Furian story to tell.
A couple of days ago, Vin Diesel took to Instagram to announce plans for a television show called Merc City and new movie called Furia.
"Last night Our company had a party to launch Our TV division. Very exciting. Merc City is a show that will follow the Mercs and Bounty Hunters of the Riddick Universe. Next Month, Dt begins writing the next Chapter in the Chronicles of Rid [Continued ...] »
Sky Line: The Space Elevator Documentary Review
23 November 2015 7:23 AM, PST
When can a generation tell if the future is happening? Or around the corner?
In the past, one imagines it would have been life-changing to see through a telescope for the first time, or hear a combustion engine start up. The endless directions various minds take with technology are unpredictable and staggeringly clever.
Perhaps it’s time again. The future just might be here.
Making science fiction startlingly close to reality, the brilliant engineering minds behind the creation of the Orbital Tower (or "Space Elevator") explain it to the rest of us in Sky Line. The possibilities will seem endless when entrance into outer space becomes so simple and accessible. As someone with moderate exposure to science fiction literature growing up- I had a great time with this on [Continued ...] »
