Far Cry: Primal – 8 Essential Features It Must Have

14 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


We knew the new Far Cry was going to be something radical. Admittedly, the gaming community was a bit too radical in its speculations that it would pit players against dinosaurs in a Jurassic Park-type scenario, or even in an alternative prehistory where man and dinosaur crossed paths.

Instead, we got Far Cry: Primal, which may not have any dinosaurs, but still has the potential to deliver an experience unlike any that gamers have had before. For the first time in video game history, we have a Aaa game braving the stone age – specifically the Mesolithic period between 10,000 BC and 5,000 BC, when humanity was trying to carve out a place for itself among the mammoths, sabre tooth cats, and other menacing megafauna that ruled the prehistoric wilds.

It’s a brave new direction for the series to take, daring to deny gamers the luxury of picking off »

‘Lumberjanes Vol. 2’ is the Manlessly Abnormal Ideal

7 October 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Lumberjanes #5-8

Written by Noelle Stevenson and Grace Ellis

Illustrated by Brooke Allen

Colors by Maarta Laiho

Letters by Aubrey Aiese

Cover by Noelle Stevenson

Published by Boom! Studios

Good news, everyone! If you liked what you saw in Lumberjanes volume 1, you will adore what comes in volume 2. Stevenson, Ellis, and Allen give you more of everything you loved: friendship, quirk, adorableness, amazeballs supernatural weirdness, female gender diversity, youthful sincerity, and camp (both the place and the quality of art). Volume 1 only began to open the door on the strange events surrounding the Roanoke cabin Lumberjanes, but volume 2 reveals the mystery and closes the arc with satisfying spectacle, wisdom, charm, and humor.

The field guide framework to Lumberjanes remains crucial in grounding the comic. While volume 1 featured yetis and bearwomen, the events of volume 2 literally bridge the worlds of humans and gods, and the audience is asked to take such »

8 First Time Directors Who Got Hired For Major Films

6 October 2015 7:08 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

This week WB hired first time director Seth Grahame-Smith to direct their upcoming movie about The Flash. While this seems like a gamble, it isn’t the first time that a newbie director has been tapped for a major blockbuster. We explore some of the most notable examples. People don’t just get handed million-dollar blockbusters, nor do studios go door-to-door looking for someone to direct the next Jurassic Park. That’s why the following list of first time directors – while seemingly out of nowhere – certainly had backgrounds directing stuff like music videos or commercials.   Still – they were untested in feature filmmaking, and to the un-obsessed public it would appear that studios simply plucked a dude off the street. Like giving a small child a semi truck, the results were mixed. 8. Simon WestCon Air Honestly there are way bigger films I could have put in place of Con Air. For »

Ray Harryhausen: Master of Illusion

5 October 2015 3:44 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The most honest magicians never use the word “magic” – they’re illusionists; they make believable that which can’t possibly be, and that’s what Harryhausen was: a master illusionist who made us believe that his table-top constructions of fabric and clay and metal were massive, mighty creatures out of legend, out of fantasy, out of our nightmares. He was a master of stop-motion animation; moving his creations a fraction of an inch per frame to create the illusion of flying saucers toppling the Washington Monument (Earth vs. the Flying Saucers, 1956), a tremendous octopus threatening the Golden Gate Bridge (It Came from Beneath the Sea, 1955), or an impossible prehistory of cave men battling dinosaurs (One Million Years B.C., 1966). When he passed, a generation of filmmakers who’d grown up watching his work at movie house matinees and Saturday night monster movie TV slots saluted him, acknowledging how his work had inspired them. »

Interview: Jamie Kennedy Talks Tremors 5: Bloodlines and More

5 October 2015 2:31 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

This week sees the return of Burt Gummer (Michael Gross) in Tremors 5: Bloodlines which has the survivalist and beloved character fighting Graboids and Assblasters in South Africa with the help of his new cameraman, Travis Welker (Jamie Kennedy). The latest sequel in the Tremors franchise arrives on Blu-ray and DVD on Tuesday and injects the series with some new blood- and monster-fied twists- which should hopefully delight longtime fans and introduce a whole new audience to everyone’s favorite subterranean monsters that first emerged back in 1990.

Daily Dead recently chatted with Tremors 5 co-star Kennedy about his involvement with the latest sequel, his experiences shooting in the wild of South Africa and collaborating with franchise mainstay Gross as well as his thoughts on keeping  up with the horror genre’s rabid fans as well over the last few decades.

Thanks for speaking with me today, Jamie. Tremors 5 was a lot »

Review: Tremors 5

5 October 2015 4:38 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

1990’s Tremors was a hit with audiences and was one of the first horror comedies that really took off and appealed to its viewers, offering up likable characters, great special fx, and villainous mega-sized worms called “Graboids” that would instantly become horror favorites. The film, which starred Kevin Bacon and Fred Ward, was about two down on their luck handymen wanting to get out of a nowhere town, just to stuck there when giant creatures threatened the town’s residents, was able to instantly become a fan favorite. It spawned many sequels (Bacon would not return for any, but Ward came back for one, and series regular Michael Gross (Family Ties)’s Burt Gummer would become the one constant in the franchise and eventual TV series. While the sequels would fail to capture the magic of the first film, they were entertaining little straight to video entries that were big with cult audiences. »

Toronto After Dark unveils its final wave of exciting film announcements for 2015

3 October 2015 12:18 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The tenth annual Toronto After Dark Film Festival kicks off in a couple weeks and the festival has finally announced the second half of titles for this year’s lineup as well as the Canadian and International shorts. PopOptiq will once again be covering the event so be sure to check back at the end of the month. Here is the press release.

The Hallow (Ireland) Toronto Premiere

Possibly the scariest film in this year’s Toronto After Dark lineup, The Hallow from the producers of Let Us Prey terrified audiences at Sundance on its debut. After a young family move from the big city to a peaceful Irish woodland cottage, their dismissive attitude to folklore legends angers the local townspeople. It’s not long before the family members find themselves in a desperate fight for survival in a prolonged confrontation with some vicious creatures lurking in the forest.

NYC Weekend Watch: Robert Zemeckis, ‘Vertigo,’ ‘Working Girl,’ ‘Rabid,’ and More

2 October 2015 7:17 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Since any New York City cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.

Kevin Feige Responds To Zack Snyder And Steven Spielberg’s Superhero Movie Comments

1 October 2015 1:26 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Recently, both Steven Spielberg and Zack Snyder caused some controversy with their comments about the superhero movie genre. The Jurassic Park director made some pretty bold claims that he believes comic book adaptations will one day soon go the way of the Western, while Snyder referred to Ant-Man as a “flavour of the month” superhero when talking about the long standing popularity of Batman and Superman.

When Kevin Feige was asked in a recent interview for his take on how long the superhero movie boom can last, he was positive that it’s a genre which is very much here to stay.

“People have been asking me that for 15 years. In 2001, 2002, 2003 there were two Marvel movies, three Marvel movies, and I still believe the same thing, which is as long as the ones that we can control are as good as they can be, that’s all that I care about. »

Watch: Over 5 Minutes Of Deleted Scenes From 'Jurassic World'

30 September 2015 1:18 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

"Jurassic World" arrives on home video in a few short weeks, enabling nitpicking superfans to continue to complain about the mega-smash hit movie that, in my opinion, was one of the best blockbusters of the year (so far), coming in second behind "Mad Max: Fury Road." Colin Trevorrow updated the "Jurassic Park" franchise for a new era, but also kept the same spirit of the series, while putting his own mark on the material. It's not an easy feat, especially for someone leaping from indie moviemaking to a major tentpole. At any rate, I'm digressing a bit, because what we're here to talk about are a batch of deleted scenes that have landed online. Read More: The Good The Bad & The Weird Of 'Jurassic World' As is usually the case with this kind of stuff, these sequences were cut for good reason, and don't add much to main feature. »

The Strain Season 2 Episode 9 Review – ‘The Battle for Red Hook’

29 September 2015 5:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Martin Carr reviews the ninth episode of The Strain season 2…

In the words of legendary singer songwriter Tom Waits I am a day late and a dollar short. Right now more than a week late and well past due on this review. It could said, and you wouldn’t be the first to say that I skirt round the issue of every series I watch. As one eloquent commentator said a few weeks back I didn’t review shit. This was followed by an equally even handed statement regarding my definition of strong and weak character. It should be noted that this has neither dissuaded me from continuing to type, nor made me resort to crying myself to sleep. Someone with neither the facility nor motivation to get themselves into a position, where their opinion is print worthy best keep it buttoned. As the late great Robin Williams once said »

Brian Blessed will play Matt Berry's dad on Toast of London series 3

29 September 2015 9:52 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Two of the best Big Shouty Men in the business, Matt Berry and Brian Blessed, are teaming up for series three of Channel 4 sitcom Toast of London.

Blessed will play the father of Berry's character, Steven Toast, in an episode that also has a cameo from Jon Hamm, the Radio Times has revealed.

That's right: Brian Blessed and Jon Hamm will feature in the same episode of Toast of London. Fingers crossed they get in the recording booth and shout "Fire the nuclear weapons!" while Clem Fandango looks on.

For those not in the know, Toast of London is a thoroughly bonkers sitcom that sees Matt Berry (The It Crowd, Garth Marenghi's Darkplace, The Mighty Boosh) as a bumbling actor whose distinctive voice sets him apart from pretty much everyone - apart from Brian Blessed, that is.

Jon Hamm, incidentally, will play himself in the show, with the joke »

Colin Trevorrow On The Future Of Jurassic World

22 September 2015 1:13 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Back in April this year, before anyone knew what a big success Jurassic World would become, co-writer/director Colin Trevorrow talked to us about the plans he had for a trilogy of films should the first click with audiences. He won’t be back behind the camera (original projects and a little something called Star Wars are taking his time), but he is writing the script, and is now talking up some of the inspiration for the future of the story. On a recent interview with the Jurassic Cast Podcast (as spotted by the team at Coming Soon), Trevorrow revealed that Jurassic World and the potential trilogy it kicks off was laid out in basic form during a road trip he took with co-writer Derek Connolly. And they’re drawing from the original Jurassic Park for their ideas. “Honestly, the trilogy is articulated in Jurassic Park, it’s all in there, »

Jurassic World 2: first hints about direction of the sequel

21 September 2015 10:21 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Plus, it looks like we're getting a Jurassic World 3 as well...

This piece talks about a character who survived Jurassic World. If you've not seen the film, you may not want to read on.

You'd have to say that Universal Pictures won its gamble to resurrect the Jurassic Park series of movies. Whilst critical opinion was divided on Jurassic World, the movie's box office was sensational. Jurassic World stands as the third biggest film of all time, with a staggering $1.66bn in the bank. A sequel has already been scheduled for June 2018.

Director Colin Trevorrow won't be back to make this one, not least because he's going to be wrangling Star Wars: Episode IX. But he is penning a draft of it, along with his usual writing partner Derek Connolly. And he's given a broad hint as to the direction of Jurassic World 2.
