Interview: Lloyd Kaufman on 18 Years of TromaDance, the State of Indie Filmmaking and Return To Return To Nuke ’Em High

11 August 2017 4:28 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

After five decades of being one of the biggest crusaders, innovators, and purveyors of independent genre filmmaking, the legendary Lloyd Kaufman shows no signs of slowing down any time soon.

Daily Dead recently had the pleasure of speaking with “Uncle Lloyd” about TromaDance 18, which kicks off this weekend in Manhattan, and he also discussed Return to Return to Nuke ’Em High, which is officially set to premiere later this year, and how the new Troma Now streaming service is giving fans access to an amazing array of indie horror films. Suffice to say, when it comes to fighting the good fight for indie cinema, Kaufman is still happy to be in the frontlines alongside Michael Herz and his Troma family more than 40 years now.

Congrats on another year of TromaDance. Can you talk about what the mission was when you guys first started this festival nearly two decades ago, and »

Meet Your New Favourite Spy: Atomic Blonde [Review]

27 July 2017 2:24 PM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

It seems like every few years the action genre gets an infusion of new blood. In the 80s it was Jackie Chan and his crazy stunts, in the 90s it was John Woo's Hong Kong cinema. In 2006 Neveldine and Taylor blew our minds with Crank and 2011 brought us The Raid: Redemption which seems to have kick-started a return to balls-to-the wall action culminating in John Wick, its sequel and now Atomic Blonde.

Based on Antony Johnston's "Atomic Blonde: The Coldest City" graphic novel series, the movie stars Charlize Theron as Lorraine Broughton, an MI6 agent sent to Berlin in final weeks before the fall of the Berlin Wall. Her mission is to track down an informant, code mane "Spyglass," who is in possession of a list of active field agents, among them a double agent. [Continued ...] »

Jay Baruchel interview: Chapterhouse Comics, Goon 2, Statham

11 July 2017 12:13 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Duncan Bowles Jul 17, 2017

Jay Baruchel chats to us about comics, X-Men movies, Goon 2 and Jason Statham...

Jay Baruchel is a very happy man indeed. Over the last decade, I’ve been fortunate enough to interview a lot of people for Den of Geek, but Mr Baruchel might just be the most enthusiastic one to date – almost every sentence ended with the kind of joyous laugh that would come from having, quite possibly, the best job ever, twice. Known to most as an actor with a gift for the comedic, having starred in the likes of Tropic Thunder, Knocked Up, Goon, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and The Art Of The Steal (to name a few personal favourites) as well as voicing accidental hero Hiccup in the fantastic How To Train Your Dragon movies, it was about his recent involvement with Canadian comic book publisher, Chapterhouse, that we had a chat with him about. »

Syfy Blows Up Its Brand, Orders ‘Krypton’ and ‘Happy!’ to Series As It Doubles Down on Genre

11 May 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Syfy is giving itself an extreme makeover. And as part of the network’s reboot, it has ordered to series the long-awaited Superman prequel “Krypton” to series, as well as an adaptation of the quirky graphic novel “Happy!”

The network is also developing an adaptation of the George R.R. Martin novella “Nightflyers,” and, as previously announced, has partnered with Blumhouse Television to develop a new TV chapter of the feature franchise “The Purge” (which will also air on USA Network).

To emphasize the changes, the network unveiled a new logo and look across its platforms. The name hasn’t changed (although that was discussed — including a return to the original Sci-Fi moniker), but now it’s in all-caps: Syfy.

The Overlook Film Festival 2017 Impressions: Immersive Experiences & Special Events

6 May 2017 11:19 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The Overlook Film Festival is something special. Easily the best genre event I’ve attended, Overlook was created for horror fans by a team whose passion for the genre runs deep. Not only have they scoured the globe for the latest horror movies that fans will get excited for, but they’ve also worked with some of the most creative people in performance art and immersive entertainment to offer attendees one-of-a-kind experiences.

Most film festivals focus heavily on the feature programming side of things for obvious reasons, but The Overlook Film Festival has enough alternative programming that you could spend your entire time focused on it. In fact, I’d say that calling it “alternative programming” does a disservice to what they’ve put together, as their special programming was stronger than the films they screened.

If you want the traditional film festival experience, that is entirely possible. If you »

Ben Wheatley interview: Free Fire, Minecraft, Statham

29 March 2017 12:10 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Rob Leane Mar 30, 2017

Free Fire director Ben Wheatley chatted to us about the film, Martin Scorsese, Freakshift and his Jason Statham double-bill theory...

We have a lot of love for Ben Wheatley here at Geek Towers. His films, from Kill List to the star-studded ilk of High Rise, never fail to impress. And on TV, he directed the stellar opening episodes of Peter Capaldi’s stint on Doctor Who.

And now he’s brought us Free Fire, a thrilling close-confines shootout movie which plonks Brie Larson, Sharlto Copley, Armie Hammer, Cillian Murphy, Sam Riley and more in a warehouse full of semi-automatic and lets chaos ensue.

Wheatley wrote the script for Free Fire with his wife and writing partner Amy Jump, having been inspired by an FBI incident report from the 1980s. The mighty Mr Martin Scorsese was involved in the movie as an executive producer.

The resultant film is »

18 January 2017 7:43 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In just three weeks, Super Bowl Li will air on Fox to a captivated national audience. Though the main draw of the Super Bowl is the actual game, featuring the best teams from the Nfc and Afc duking it out for supremacy, but there’s also another draw for those less interested in football: the commercials. Every year, companies spend millions of dollars to air high-profile spots and this year is no exception.
