Pandemic Review

I hate making claims like the one you’re about to read, but here goes nothing: Pandemic is the Alien Outpost of 2016 – assuredly my most inconsequential critical comparison. “Alien Outpost” will mean nothing to the hordes who never discovered its existence, and I’m confident that many of you might never have heard of a little first-person thriller called Pandemic until now. But that’s why I’m here! It’s my job to constantly chug away at a never-ending pile of horror’s lesser publicized efforts while insomnia sets in and the voices keep me company.

In this who’s who of “where are they now” talents from Hollywood’s yesteryear, director John Suits dives head-first into a zombie plague that’s a little bit 28 Days Later, a tad Battlefield La (in feel), and reminiscent of Rec (not in quality, though). Beginning as any video game would (an introductory tutorial

Naomie Harris in talks to be a Bond girl in 'Bond 23'
Turns out the British tabloids aren’t always wrong. EW has confirmed reports in Rupert Murdoch’s News of the World earlier today that actress Naomie Harris (Pirates of the Caribbean, 28 Days Later) is being considered to star as a Bond girl in Bond 23, the stand-in title for the long-delayed, soon-to-shoot 007 movie. A spokesperson for Eon Productions, Bond’s home, tells EW that Harris has indeed met with the filmmakers, although no deals have yet been struck. Beyond that, all we know about the film is that Sam Mendes will direct, Daniel Craig will return as Bond for the third time,

'World War Z' With Brad Pitt And Marc Forster Regroups; Can It Beat Imminent Zombie Pic Infestation?

'World War Z' With Brad Pitt And Marc Forster Regroups;  Can It Beat Imminent Zombie Pic Infestation?
While there have been reports that Paramount might kill World War Z because of a $125 million budget and no partners, I'm hearing that hot and heavy talks are going on with David Ellison's Skydance and as many as two other financiers to share the load on a movie that is gearing up for production as soon as June. The plan remains for Brad Pitt to star and for Marc Forster to direct the adaptation Max Brooks' novel World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War.  The book looked at the aftermath of a global zombie war 10 years after the conflict, with a researcher for the UN Postwar Commission interviewing survivors in countries that were decimated by flesh eaters. It was thorough, and a thoroughly creepy read. The temptation is to joke about the irony of a zombie project coming back to life after it was pronounced near dead.

Danny Boyle Updates 28 Months Later

Will he or won't he direct?

Earlier this month, it looked like 28 Days Later director Danny Boyle might return to direct the next sequel, tentatively titles 28 Months Later. Styd caught up with Boyle at a press event for 127 Hours where the director was asked about his participation in the sequel

I would love to direct another one of it because I watched the second one, and I wasn't that involved in the second one, and I really enjoyed watching it as a punter. When you make films, you never really see them the way punters see them, it's weird. You're entrusted with editing a film for an audience and yet, you're as far away from what they will see as you can ever get, because you've watched it hundreds of time. I watched [the sequel] as a punter and I thought I'd love to direct the next one, and that's where that began really,

Exclusive: A review of the pilot script for The Walking Dead TV series

Is there such a thing as having too much dead people in your entertainment quota?

The answer to that question will only be known if AMC decides to give a greenlight to a TV series based on Robert Kirkman's ongoing comic book series about life after the zombie apocalypse, The Walking Dead. If you haven't been paying attention, the 2000s saw the zombie finally rise to mainstream status with a horde of well-received movies in this monster genre: the Resident Evil films (with a fourth now in production); a remake of Dawn of the Dead; 28 Days Later and its sequel which gave the idea of a slow moving corpse a twist with its fast runners; zombie comedies Zombieland and Fido; and the return of the father of modern zombie cinema, George A. Romero, with two new ghoul films, Land of the Dead and Diary of the Dead (and there's a third forthcoming,

Judge Dredd Returns
Comic book movie Judge Dredd is to return for a sequel - 13 years after the futuristic anti-hero was portrayed by Sylvester Stallone.

The rights have been bought up by DNA films, the production company behind several of British director Danny Boyle's movies, including last year's Sunshine and 2002's 28 Days Later.

The news was announced on the official 2000Ad website, the comic book on which the film was based, according to Moviehole.net.

Jason Kingsley, CEO and creative director of the comic book franchise, says, "We can't give away too many details at this point, but we're looking forward to working with DNA Films to bring Judge Dredd back to the big screen."

It is not yet known whether Stallone will reprise the title role.

Classically trained British actor Christopher Eccleston has been confirmed as Dr. Who for the eagerly awaited new TV series. The 28 Days Later star will be the ninth Dr Who in the cult British show - beating off competition from transvestite comedian Eddie Izzard, Gosford Park actor Richard E Grant and TV favorite Alan Davies, to appear in the first series in 15 years. Jane Tranter, head of BBC drama, says, "We have chosen one of Britain's finest actors. It signals our intention to take Dr. Who into the 21st century as well as retaining its core, traditional values to be surprising, edgy and eccentric." Filming is due to start in Wales later this spring with the first series airing early next year.
