Arriving mere days before Seth Rogen's apocalyptic comedy 'This is the End' comes Paul Middleditch's ('Seperation City') comical attempt at a light-hearted vision of the end of the world. 'Rapure-Palooza' lands on VOD and in select theatres from 7 June in the Us and ahead of the release comes this new unique clip from the movie featuring an effing and jeffing crow. John Francis Daley, Craig Robinson ('Hot Tub Time Machine'), Rob Corddry ('Warm Bodies'), Ken Jeong ('The Hangover'), Tyler Labine ('Tucker and Dale vs Evil') and Paul Scheer ('Piranha 3Dd') all star along with the beautiful Anna Kendrick -below ('Up in the Air'). For those with dainty ears that do not appreciate foul feathered language then it may be best to avoid the new clip below. »
'Rapture-Palooza' is the new comedy horror feature from 'Seperation City' director Paul Middleditch. It seems 2013 is the year for humourous sideways views of the apocalypse and 'Rapture-Palooza' is no different. Although the new one-sheet that has just been revealed is painfully unfunny and is greatly reminiscent of the poster for Harold Ramis's 2000 comedy redo 'Bedazzled'. Still, there's a whole host of comedy talent on the cards including Craig Robinson ('Hot Tub Time Machine'), Rob Corddry ('Warm Bodies'), Ken Jeong ('The Hangover'), Tyler Labine ('Tucker and Dale vs Evil') and Paul Scheer ('Piranha 3Dd'). The sexy Anna Kendrick -below ('Up in the Air') and John Francis Daley play a couple left behind during the heavenly rapture only to end up living alongside the Devil. Robinson also stars in Seth Rogen's upcoming end of the world »
"Zombieland" TV series was a huge priority for Amazon, because the company finished putting together the pilot episode not too long after announcing that the series was in the works. "Zombieland" was just one of many potential TV series that Amazon was developing and decided that it will let fans choose which ones should get additional episodes and which ones should be thrown out. Apparently fans didn't like what they saw, because Amazon just announced that it will not continue with "Zombieland." The director of the pilot episode, Eli Craig (Tucker and Dale vs Evil), has already moved on to another project. The producers, however, have the option of taking "Zombieland" to a different company. »
Amazon.com released a Zombieland pilot episode over their instant video service last month, but it has been revealed that they will not move forward with an order of additional episodes. The pilot was released along with a number of original pilots in April, but reaction to the episode was less than positive from many of those who had seen it.
While this is likely the end for Zombieland: The Series, it is possible that another company could pick up the show. If we hear anything else about the project moving forward, we’ll be sure to let readers know. If you’d like a preview of the pilot, we’ve included the official trailer below. Here’s the original pilot announcement from Amazon:

Craig wrote the script and will direct the feature, which will be produced by Scott Stuber and his Universal-based Bluegrass Films. The logline is being kept under wraps. Sources say the deal was in the seven figures.

During the Melbourne International Film Festival last year, one of the most raucous premieres was for horror comedy 100 Bloody Acres. While it starts off as a slow burn, once it gets going the movie is pretty damn funny - and horrific - with some near-classic scenes. I imagine it'll be sold as an Australian version of Tucker and Dale vs Evil, although I enjoyed this more.Starring Damon Herriman and Angus Sampson (who you might recognise from their roles in Justified and Insidious respectively) and directed by brothers Colin and Cameron Cairnes, 100 Bloody Acres is now gearing up for an Aussie cinema release. The Cairnes brothers, who cut their teeth making parodies of amateur films in addition to other shorts, have made two ads for the fictional Morgans'...

Review Jake Laverde 22 Apr 2013 - 08:00
Jake checks out Amazon's Zombieland sitcom pilot and finds it a confident start that keeps the original's sense of humour intact...
Last week saw the launch of the much mooted TV adaptation of horror comedy Zombieland. Writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick have long talked about a possible TV series spun out of their whip-smart apocalyptic comedy and now it's come in the form of one of eight comedy pilots being piloted by internet shopping dominant Amazon as they move into original productions.
The 2009 film, originally pitched as a TV show funnily enough, was a whip-smart, quirky take on genre tropes noted for the chemistry between its leads Woody Harrelson and Jesse Eisenberg. So how does this proposed series compare without them? Written by both Reese and Wernick along with Eli Craig (writer of the excellent Tucker and Dale vs Evil), the offbeat humour is kept intact. »
That was a quick turnaround time. The pilot episode of Zombieland just started filming recently, and Amazon.com has already released it over their instant video service. If you’re an Amazon Prime member, you have the ability to watch the pilot episode right now!
As previously mentioned, customer feedback will determine if more episodes will be produced. To watch the episode, visit: http://www.amazon.com/Pilot-hd/dp/B00CE18P0K/

Directed by Brian Helgeland.
The life story of Jackie Robinson and his history-making signing with the Brooklyn Dodgers under the guidance of team executive Branch Rickey.
Every year we get at least one or two inspirational sports films about a team or a player that has to overcome some kind of obstacle in order to succeed. A lot of these particular films deal with race as the obstacle our protagonist must overcome. Sometimes it works great, like in Remember the Titans, and other times it doesn't work quite so well, like in Glory Road. 42 is able to stand out among these kinds of sports films. It ends up being inspirational and a fitting tribute to Jackie Robinson.
The film shows us the life of baseball great Jackie Robinson, »
