Production begins on the Alan Moore-scripted The Show

Emu Flms and Lex Films have announced that production is underway on The Show, a detective story from the mind of legendary creator Alan Moore, which marks his first original feature screenplay to be realised on screen.

“With The Show, I wanted to apply the storytelling ability accumulated during the rest of my varied career to the medium of film,” said Moore. “I wanted to see if it was possible to create an immersive and addictive world with no throwaway dialogue and no throwaway characters, a world where every character is memorable, distinctive and attempting to steal the whole show for themselves, just as we do in real life. I wanted to take some very old-school approaches to film and to find out, alongside Mitch Jenkins, what would happen if you connected them up with some very modern ideas and technical capabilities, and I wanted to make a piece of

Comic Book Review – Newbury & Hobbes: The Undying #3

Calum Petrie reviews Newbury & Hobbes: The Undying #3…

The ongoing adventure in Newbury & Hobbes: The Undying appears to drag the titular characters back through the misery of their past, where the times of their greatest failures and weaknesses are being thrust upon them again, only to torment and provoke them.

The latest issue revolves around the characters coming to the realisation that not only is their greatest enemy still at large, that he is also three steps ahead of everyone. A series of bombings has left the police in disarray, the queen has her back against the wall and Hobbes is dealing with a slight form of Ptsd. The events are being kicked into a high gear and everyone is now in for the ride wither they want to attend or not.

The artwork in this comic still has me dumbstruck, as I imagine Victorian London settings to always be a more stylised affair.

Review: Alpha, Bold and Vital Big-Screen Adventure

Nowadays, it's rare to watch a movie that feels like it was expressly designed for the big screen. Oh, sure, some filmmakers know how to fill up the space with a constant blur of motion and movement and people and things and explosions. Far fewer, however, are sufficiently bold to compose images that take full advantage of the wide-screen experience. Albert Hughes is known for his work with his brother Allen Hughes. Together they made Menace II Society and Dead Presidents, crime films that were bursting with energy, as well as From Hell, an unusual period horror mystery that stands out in my memory more for its florid atmosphere than anything else. The Book of Eli is the clearest antecedent here; it followed Denzel Washington...

Alpha Review: A Boy and His Wolf

Albert Hughes’ prehistoric adventure, now on Blu-ray & DVD, is dazzling and frustrating at the same time.

It’s been a while since we had an old-fashioned caveman movie (for lack of a better term), and kudos to director Albert Hughes for conceiving of one with Alpha, the story of a prehistoric teen who makes his way back to his family across a vast, treacherous landscape with the help of a wolf he establishes a bond with. But the movie is both impressive and vexing as Hughes’ genuinely ambitious vision is hampered by stock plot points and inconsistent visuals.

Hughes isn’t afraid to genre-jump, going from urban drama (Menace II Society) to period horror (From Hell) to post-apocalyptic sci-fi (Book of Eli) with relative ease. In Alpha, he confidently asks viewers to follow Keda (Kodi Smit-McPhee), a young member of an advanced Cro-Magnon tribe known as the Solutrean. Keda speaks

‘Alpha’ Review: Prehistoric Boy-Meets-Wolf Epic Is Genuinely Awe-Inspiring

Part wilderness survival tale, part prehistoric boy-meets-wolf love story and part American Museum of Natural History exhibit come to life, Albert Hughes’ rugged, rich epic feels just as out-of-time as its narrative of primitive hunters and their Canis lupus pals. It’s a movie devoted to overwhelming viewers with vast, lush vistas of craggy cliffs, lightning-split skylines, endless snowy tundras, impossibly green forests and eye-popping auroras. (Sweeping does not begin to describe the visuals here; it not only deserves to be seen on the biggest screen possible, it demands it.

Film Review: ‘Alpha’

  • Variety
“Alpha,” a spectacular prehistoric eye-candy survival yarn, is enthralling in a square and slightly stolid way. It’s the tale of a young hunter stranded in the wilderness, who proves his manhood and becomes best friends with a wolf, and it’s like a Disney adventure fueled by a higher octane of visual dazzle, with a gnarly texture wrought from elements like blood, excrement, and maggots. The director, Albert Hughes, made his name along with his brother Allen co-directing such landmark films as “Menace II Society” (1993) and the supremely underrated Jack the Ripper thriller “From Hell” (2001), and on his own he proves to be a seductive if highly traditional craftsman who knows how to sculpt a drama of the primal human spirit out of sweeping images: a herd of mastodons, a billowing volcano, a racing warthog, sun and wind and ice and plunging cliffs.

Hughes is artful enough not to

Captain Spaulding Returns in Rob Zombie's Latest 3 from Hell Poster

Captain Spaulding Returns in Rob Zombie's Latest 3 from Hell Poster
Rob Zombie has been methodically rolling out character posters for his Devil's Rejects sequel 3 from Hell. It seems like forever ago that we saw Bill Moseley as Otis Driftwood gleefully flipping us off, which was followed by Danny Trejo's return as Rondo. Now, we finally get a look at Sid Haig, who is back to reprise his role as the iconic clown gone clean Captain Spaulding.

Ol' Spaulding looks like he's literally been through Hell, as though someone dug him directly out of his grave. 3 From Hell wrapped shooting back in April, but Rob Zombie is in no rush to get through post-production, as he has tour commitments that come first. The sequel is expected to arrive sometime in 2019. Perhaps it will show up on theater screens in time for Halloween.

The Firefly family is literally arriving from Hell in this next Rob Zombie movie. When we last saw Baby,
