The Mummy and Lifeforce: the strange parallels

16 October 2017 8:17 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Oct 17, 2017

This year's The Mummy reboot shares a surprising amount with the 1985 sci-fi horror classic, Lifeforce...

Nb: The following contains spoilers for 2017's The Mummy and 1985's Lifeforce.

When Universal Studios made The Mummy back in 1932, it was in the wake of Tut-mania: the fascination with Ancient Egypt following the discovery of King Tutankhamun's tomb a decade earlier. As Egyptian-inspired symbols and designs began to appear on everything from jewellery to cigarette ads, stories began to circulate that the pharoah's tomb was cursed - and thus The Mummy, about a group of archaeologists who provoke the wrath of a long-dead Imhotep (Boris Karloff, hypnotic as always) emerged.

The Mummy's success was such that it became a long-running franchise: Universal made four direct sequels between 1940 and 1944, with a comedy spin-off, Abbott And Costello Meet The Mummy, joining them in 1955. The UK's Hammer Film »

Kate Beckinsale is joining the list of actresses who have shared their encounters dealing with Harvey Weinstein over the years. In an emotional Instagram post, Beckinsale reveals she was asked to meet Weinstein at the Savoy Hotel when she was just 17. “I assumed it would be in a conference room,” the actress said of the meeting, but when she arrived the receptionist told her to head to Weinstein’s room. Beckinsale says he answered the door in his bathrobe.

“I was incredibly naive and young and it did not cross my mind that this older, unattractive man would expect me to have any sexual interest in him,” Beckinsale writes. “After declining alcohol and announcing that I had school in the morning I left, uneasy but unscathed.”

Beckinsale says there was no physical altercation between Weinstein and herself that night. »

Halloween 2017: 10 Boo-zy Cocktail Recipes to Raise Your “Spirits”

9 October 2017 5:22 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The month of October is an exciting time of year for kids—and also those of us who still consider ourselves “kids at heart”—and with that in mind, I wanted to put together a collection of fun and festive cocktails that you can serve up at your Halloween gatherings, or just mix up anytime you want to get into the “spirit” of the season over the next few weeks.

Halloween Blood Orange Martini

When Blood Oranges season begins, it’s a big moment in our house, as we’re huge fans of the crisp tartness of this fruit (especially when paired with cranberries), particularly in the fall. With that in mind, I thought these Halloween Blood Orange Martinis (via Culinary Ginger) would be a great drink to serve this month, and while the recipe doesn’t call for it, I feel like adding a few cranberries to this martini »

Die Hard 6 still active, Len Wiseman gives update

27 September 2017 5:50 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Sep 27, 2017

Casting is now underway for the new John McClane...

It’s been nearly two years now since news landed of a possible sixth Die Hard movie. This is the one that would part act as a John McClane origins story, and part be set in the present day. Die Hard 4.0 director Len Wiseman was attached to the project. And then things went quiet. For a long time.

It turns out, though, that the project is still active, and in fact is likely to be Wiseman’s next big screen directorial outing. Chatting to Deadline – whilst mainly talking about the Underworld TV series that’s planned – Wiseman has been talking about finding an actor to play the young McClane. “The right casting for this role is crucial”, he said. “Those bare feet have some very big shoes to fill”.

The casting process is apparently underway right now too, »

‘Underworld’ Franchise Moving to TV with Creator Len Wiseman

26 September 2017 9:54 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Underworld franchise seems to have finally worn out its welcome at theaters. Debuting in 2003, the film about a “death dealer” (a vampire who hunts werewolves only to fall for a vampire/lycan hybrid), spawned three sequels and a prequel, most recently this past January’s Underworld: Blood Wars. The movie grossed a respectable $81 million worldwide off a $35 million budget, but that $81 million was a far cry from the gross of the previous picture, Underworld: Awakening, which pulled in $160 million worldwide. Deadline reports that the series is now moving to television with Len Wiseman, who … »

Len Wiseman moving forward with Underworld TV series

26 September 2017 8:11 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

If you cast your mind back to 2014, you may recall that Underworld director Len Wiseman revealed that development was underway on a TV series based around the action horror franchise, and now Deadline is reporting that the project is finally moving forward.

“The series will be a pretty big departure from the films,” said Wiseman, who was involved in all five Underworld movies, directing the first two and co-writing and producing the following three. “I don’t want to say it’s more adult, but it’s definitely less comic book in its tone and character.”

According to the report, the Underworld series is targeting the premium cable/digital space, and Wiseman is executive producing through his Sketch Films banner, along with Tom Rosenberg, Gary Lucchesi and Eric Reid of Lakeshore Entertainment.

Wiseman is currently serving as an executive producer on Fox’s new Marvel series The Gifted, and on the big screen, »

Status Update on In-the-Works Underworld TV Series

25 September 2017 2:51 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

It's been in the works for quite some time, but the Underworld TV series, based on the action horror film franchise of the same name, looks to be moving forward with director/producer Len Wiseman at the forefront.

Although the Underworld TV series hasn't found a network to call home, Deadline reports that the development of the series is indeed moving forward at Wiseman's production company Sketch Films.

Currently containing five films, the Underworld film franchise follows the vampiric assassin Selene (also known as a Death Dealer) as she navigates the war between bloodsuckers and Lycans, with humans occasionally caught in the carnage. Kate Beckinsale has played Selene in the films, but it's not yet known what the plot of the series would be, or if Beckinsale would be involved.

Wiseman will executive produce the series along with Lakeshore Entertainment’s Tom Rosenberg, Gary Lucchesi, and Eric Reid, with the »

Underworld TV series is in development

25 September 2017 1:05 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

David Crow Sep 26, 2017

The Underworld franchise will live again in a new television series...

A good vampire story never truly ends. Like the eternal succubi themselves, a yarn about Nosferatu merely mutates and transforms, but it never stops. How else do you explain all those bloody Dracula movies? So it’s not really a surprise that Underworld will live again as a television series after enjoying a lengthy (and long-in-the-tooth) five-film franchise.

Indeed, Deadline broke the news that longtime Underworld patron Len Wiseman and his production company Sketch Films is moving forward with a previously rumored Underworld television series that’ll target a premium cable/streaming market. Wiseman gave a quote confirming as much.

“The series will be a pretty big departure from the films,” Wiseman said. “I don’t want to say it’s more adult, but it’s definitely less comic book in its tone and character.”

Underworld TV Series Gets The Go Ahead; Len Wiseman Promises “Big Departure” From Film Franchise

25 September 2017 12:09 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Death Dealer is headed to television.

Deadline brings word today that Len Wiseman and Sketch Films are spearheading an Underworld TV series based on the cult action-horror franchise of warring Vampires and Lycans. With an eye on a premium cable/digital slot, the long-gestating project will seemingly be a “big departure” from the five-part film series, which itself launched the middling Underworld: Blood Wars back in January. Perhaps some fresh blood and a new platform are needed to keep the cult action franchise afloat?

It’s far too soon to gauge Underworld‘s chances of success, but it now joins a long line of film-to-tv adaptations. It’s a creative process fraught with duds and disappointments, as competent spinoffs like The Exorcist are often countered by the likes of Minority Report and Limitless, which were both canned after only one season on the airwaves. Here’s hoping Wiseman’s »

Len Wiseman Brewing ‘Underworld’ TV Series, Says ‘Die Hard: Year One’ Still Happening

25 September 2017 11:56 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The “Underworld” franchise has achieved the remarkable feat of lasting five films, but making no real impact on the pop culture sphere. The series — which is best known as that one where Kate Beckinsale wears leather and points guns at people — has always made a tidy profit, and pulled in enough overseas to justify making another one, but no one actually cares about the films. (Do they?) In fact, before last year’s “Underworld: Blood Wars,” there was already talk of rebooting the property entirely, and while they ultimately decided to continue for one more flick, the time has arrived to give it a fresh coat of paint.

Exclusive Interview: Composer Michael Wandmacher discusses his Voice from the Stone score and more

16 September 2017 1:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the Halloween season quickly approaching it’s no surprise that a number of darker films are slated for release including mother!, Friend Request, Flatliners, Happy Death Day and the latest Saw installment. One film that should not be overlooked during this time is Eric D. Howell’s eerie drama/mystery Voice from the Stone starring Game of ThronesEmilia Clarke. The film made its UK premiere at FrightFest last month and is now currently available on DVD and VOD in the U.S. This week the film’s composer Michael Wandmacher, whose other credits include Underworld: Blood Wars, Punisher: War Zone, & Drive Angry, received a World Soundtrack Public Choice award nomination for his score to the film, so we decided to speak with Michael about everything from co-writing the film’s end track ‘Speak to Me’ alongside Evanescence’s Amy Lee to creating the Underworld: Blood Wars score.
