This has truly been a summer of sonic shocks, my creeps, and the arcane audio keeps on a-comin’. Take fer instance the groovy ghoulies that are sittin’ here right now: Ghosts in the Graveyard! I caught these crazy creatures as they tried to film some sort of music video atop my crypt. A quick love tap from my Terror Tazer™ later, and these musical monsters are my new house band! Since they’re going to be permanent “guests” around here, why not find out what makes these beastly bards tick?
Famous Monsters. What’s the low-down on Ghosts in the Graveyard, and how did you come up with yer sinister sound?
Byron. It all started many years ago. I was in the industrial band God Module, a band that while I loved being brought into and getting to add my touch here and there, ultimately wasn’t my creation. One »

Over the years that Den Of Geek has been going, we've regularly been charting the assortment of reboots and remakes that are making their way through the Hollywood system. This, then, is the current state of play. We've removed a bunch of projects that seem utterly dead - the once mooted remakes of Videodrome and Timecrimes, for instance - but we'll keep this list up to date as and when we hear of more.
Without further ado, here's what's coming up...
One of Hollywood's most on and off projects, the current state of the live action Akira remake is that it's back in the works. Marco J Ramirez, the showrunner for season 2 of Netflix's Daredevil show, has been hired to pen a screenplay. Warner Bros is still backing the film, »
It's more violent than a kebab shop after the pubs kick out, and has caused more controversy than Katie Hopkins on an episode of This Morning. It's spawned a couple of movies, a TV show, comic books, techno albums and card games. It is, of course, Mortal Kombat.
As the franchise's first major motion picture prepares to celebrate its 20th anniversary, now seems like as good a time as any to look back at the series' best brawlers.
From young pretenders like Cassie Cage and Erron Black to old favourites like Raiden and Sonya Blade, here are the top 20 Mortal Kombat kharacters characters.
Why Mortal Kombat is the greatest game movie ever made
First appears in: Mortal Kombat X
There was a spell when new additions to the Mortal Kombat series were either masked ninja clones (Rain) or just a bit crap (Stryker). The development team made much »
Vin Diesel returns to theaters this fall in the highly anticipated new film, The Last Witch Hunter – and he’s out to destroy the most powerful witches that ever walked the earth. Kaulder (Diesel) is the greatest soldier of the Axe and Cross. He is joined in his cinematic quest to rid the world of witches by a star-studded cast that boasts Elijah Wood, Rose Leslie, Ólafur Darri Ólafsson, Julie Engelbrecht, and Michael Caine.
There’s a part of me that enjoys just about anything Vin Diesel appears in. For the most part, everything ends up entertaining. Yeah, he can sometimes seem a little full of himself and look like he’s taking things a bit too far over the top, but I always get the impression that he knows exactly what he’s doing in those situations and you can’t fault a guy for simply trying to entertain people. »

Things in Beacon Hills are getting increasingly weirder, troubling and dangerous with every visit. Great stuff, says Ron...
This review contains spoilers.
5.7 Strange Frequencies
Danger seems to lurk around every corner in Beacon Hills. It doesn't matter if you're a normal person or a supernatural monster, there's something or someone out there looking to kill you. We've seen that a lot this season thanks to the weird science wrought by the Dread Doctors, and it's not really getting old yet. There's always something interesting happening, the dangers are varied enough and fleshed-out enough that whether we feel sorry for the victim/monster of the week or not, we at least feel something. Tracy didn't deserve her fate; Donovan did, because he threatened everyone's favorite TV dad with a stabbing-related death. Hayden, the latest target of the Doctors' dread machinations... not sure yet.
In an effort to come clean to Hayden, »

"You want to get out of here? You talk to me."
Following our look at the first Mad Max movie in the wake of Fury Road's frenzied rampage, our attention turns to its sequel. Just how could George Miller top such a scintillating and thrilling action movie that left so many noses bloodied and hearts broken? By making it a much bigger visual voyage for the audience and reversing the emotional journey for Mel Gibson's wounded hero.
The wastelands we encounter at the beginning show how the post-apocalyptic world has crumbled further since the end of Mad Max. The trees are now dead stumps sprouting from the barren earth, a lifeless look that Max Rockatansky tries to project from behind his embittered eyes. The trauma of losing his wife and child has caused him to shut off his own humanity and empathy, or at least try to, in a »
Amongst Americans such as myself, there is a certain stereotype about our neighbors to the north. There’s a belief that Canadians are, for lack of a better word, nice. That during a visit to Canada, an American would be more likely to ride a moose around like a horse than hear the F-word. That hockey players are the only remotely dangerous people you could possibly meet in Canada, and even then, that they would only pummel you under the watchful eye of a referee whom they will later respectfully follow to the penalty box. This stereotype is perhaps best summed up by this scene in Michael Moore’s lone fiction film, Canadian Bacon, where Dan Aykroyd politely upbraids an invading group of American revolutionaries for not printing their anti-Canada graffiti in both English and French.
As stereotypes go, it’s a fairly positive one. But making stereotypes, even positive ones, »

In the wake of the Alien 5 news, here are 10 franchise sequels that also ignored at least one previous film.
We all have moments in our lives we'd prefer to forget, and so too do filmmakers. So what do you do when a movie franchise starts to go off the rails? Simple, just forget that the lesser films in the series never happened.
News recently broke that director Neill Blomkamp's taking this approach to the Alien universe. Recent interviews with both he and returning star Sigourney Weaver have revealed that Blomkamp's forthcoming sequel will not necessarily follow the events of Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection, and pick up the story from Aliens instead (although he has since given a brief update on that).
Of course, we'll have to wait and see exactly how all this pans out. But it's by no means the first time in history that a film's »
If Latino-Review is to be believed, Summit Entertainment may have found its villain for the long-gestating Highlander reboot, with the site reporting that Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy) will play The Kurgan, a role portrayed by Clancy Brown in the 1986 original.
Currently steering the Highlander reboot is first time filmmaker Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, while the role of Connor MacLeod remains unfilled after Ryan Reynolds pulled out. Back in November, it was also reported that Tom Cruise (Edge of Tomorrow) is on the studio’s radar for MacLeod’s mentor, Juan Ramirez.

Dave Bautista is quickly becoming a hot property in Hollywood. Fresh off his success in Guardians of the Galaxy, he has roles in upcoming Bond flick Spectre, as well as the reboot of Kickboxer. Cornering the market in iconic villains, you can now add barbarian ass-kicker The Kurgan to the growing list of characters he'll be making his own. For those of you too young to remember (the original Highlander turns 30 next year!!), The Kurgan, originally played by Clancy Brown, was a vicious brute of an immortal who hunts Connor MacLeod - of the clan MacLeod - for the prize that comes with being the final immortal standing. Still no word on who Bautista will be squaring off against, but this is one of the better casting decisions made by Hollywood, and makes the reboot all the more appealing in time for the 30th anniversary of this classic sc--fi actioner. »

Dave Bautista literally stole the show in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy. So it's no wonder he is at the top of every producer's wish list whenever the idea of a new villain comes up for a remake or sequel. Earlier today we saw this WWE Superstar on the set of Spectre, playing an assassin known as Mr. Hinx opposite Daniel Craig as James Bond. Now, perpetual scoop delivery system Latino Review is breaking the rumor that Batista, as he is known to his original fan base, is being targeted as The Kurgan, the main villain in Highlander.
Latino Review claim that Dave Bautista has already signed on, but that has not yet been officially announced. The wrestler-turned-actor will play a giant barbarian in the Highlander reboot, which is coming from first time director Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, a VFX artist. The original 1986 movie starred Christopher Lambert as Connor MacLeod, an immortal »

Guardians of the Galaxy's Drax the Destroyer, Dave Bautista is not just adding Spectre's villainous muscleman, Mr. Hinx to his resume. The WWE Wrestling Champion is now taking up the sword as the pivotal Kurgan in the much anticipated Highlander reboot for Summit. Latino Review, which noted that Bautista was joining Spectre as a Bond villain last year, now says that Bautista will be taking on the role of the Kurgan, the "perfect warrior" that battles the Highlander for immortality in that awesome scene at the top of the Silver Cup Studios building in the original film. The Kurgan was originally portrayed in the first 1986 Highlander film by Clancy Brown (who is now known as the voice of Mr. Crabs in Spongebob). Bautista will be filling those warrior boots for first time director, Cedric Nicholas-Troyan. Nicholas-Troyan, a VFX wizard, also now is pegged with directing the spinoff for »
Now here’s a thing. Dave Bautista – Drax in Guardians Of The Galaxy and Mr. Hinx in Spectre – is filling a Kurgan-shaped hole in the fast-developing Highlander reboot. According to the reliable Latino Review, Bautista will be destroying more stuff in the role filled by Clancy Brown in the 1986 fantasy movie.The Kurgan is, of course, the arch-nemesis of Connor MacLeod, a barbarian with an iffy temperament and a nasty habit of decapitating news reporters. Brown brought a touch of panto villain to the original film but plenty of menace, too, in his quest to slay the other remaining immortals.This planned dusting off of the mind-bending mythology and katana-wielding cult classic has been bubbling under for some time as Summit Entertainment has tried to pin down directors and stars. The lead role of immortal Scotsman Connor MacLeod remains unfilled, with Ryan Reynolds signing up and then later exiting, but »
Former WWE champ turned actor Dave Bautista ("Guardians Of The Galaxy") is rumored to have signed on to play the villain in the reboot of classic sci-fi/fantasy film "Highlander" at Summit Entertainment.
Latino Review broke the news with Bautista slated to take on Clancy Brown's role of The Kurgan from the original 1986 film. The Kurgan first encounters Connor MacLeod on the battlefield in 16th century Scotland, where he discovers his foe is also immortal. The two meet again for their final battle in modern-day New York.
Cedric Nicolas-Troyan is helming the new version which has yet to cast its male lead, though Tom Cruise is reportedly being courted for the mentor role of Ramirez (Sean Connery in the original). Bautista is currently playing the secondary villain Mr. Hinx in the next James Bond film "Spectre". »

I met Dave Bautista on the set of Guardians of the Galaxy and again during that film’s promotional circus. He was a thoughtful, interesting man, and a pleasure to talk to. Better still – at least as far as his career goes – he’s been turning in a string of spot-on performances.
And coming soon, if Latino Review are to be believed, he’ll be readying another. According to their report, Bautista is joining the remake of Highlander, taking over the role of Vincent Kruger, aka The Kurgan. He’s the big bad – in Bautista’s case, very big bad.
The other two lead roles are still to be cast, with no sign of a Connor McLeod in sight since Ryan Reynolds stepped away and the last I heard, Tom Cruise on the shopping list for Ramirez, the mentor role, but seemingly not interested.

Summit Entertainment's Highlander reboot is still looking for its Connor MacLeod, but according to Lr, the film has found its The Kurgan in the form of Guardians Of The Galaxy's Dave Bautista. Played by Clancy Brown in the 1986 film, The Kurgan is a violent barbarian who seeks to be the only immortal left on earth. This is another big villain role for Bautista, who will be playing Tong Po in the Kickboxer remake, and henchman Mr. Hinx in the upcoming Bond movie Spectre. »
