Riddick Sequel

It took a long time for Riddick to make it to the big screen. The sequel that followed Pitch Black and Chronicles of Riddick wasn’t exactly a runaway hit, pulling in $98 million worldwide. But it did that on a budget of $38 million, and the sci-fi franchise starring Vin Diesel has quite the cult following that made it the #1 movie on the home video charts when it was released back in January of 2014. That prompted Universal to tell the actor that they wanted to make another sequel, and now that’s finally happening. Read More »

Lost in Space Remake

It’s been over a year since we heard that the classic 1960s sci-fi series Lost in Space was getting a TV remake from Dracula Untold writers Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless, but since then we haven’t heard of any progress on the project. But that changes today as the series remake has landed at Netflix, arguably the best place for a series like Lost in Space to go so it doesn’t have to contend with all the rigmarole of network television.

Attack the Block Poster

If you’re anxious to see how John Boyega fares as one of the new heroes in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, you might want to check out the film that really got us to pay close attention to the young British actor: Attack the Block.

Written and directed by Joe Cornish, the movie is a perfect blend of contemporary style and classic monster movie tropes as an alien invasion wreaks havoc in the hood in South London with a young street gang doing whatever they have to in order to survive. And now Matt Taylor has paid tribute to the movie with an awesome Attack the Block poster that is now available for purchase. Check it out below! Read More »

11.22.63 trailer

The pedigree behind the upcoming miniseries 11.22.63 is certainly intriguing. You have Hulu taking another huge step into the the world of original content (consider this a direct parry to Netflix’s constant blows). You have source material from the great Stephen King, whose novel of the same name is the one of the most acclaimed he’s written in years. You have J.J. Abrams on board as an executive producer. And then you have James Franco, that slippery wild card of a leading man, headlining an ensemble stuffed with interesting actors.

The first trailer for the nine-epiosde limited series has arrived and while it’s only a minor tease, it’s certainly going to turn a few heads. There are too many interesting parties involved to not dredge up interest.

Watch the 11.22.63 trailer after the jump.

100 years movie

Director Robert Rodriguez has always been game for experimentation and actor John Malkovich has never shied away from odd projects, but their new collaboration, titled 100 Years, is something else entirely. Although it’s technically a promotional stunt for Louis XIII Cognac, a luxury item that costs more than most human beings make in a month, this film can’t help but make a fascinating artistic statement by its very nature.

Because it won’t be released for a century. Seriously. 100 Years won’t be screened anywhere until 2115. Even the teasers that have been released don’t contain footage from the actual movie. The gimmick is that is takes 100 years to properly age Louis XIII into a bottle of booze that only millionaires can afford, so what happens when you let a top secret Rodriguez/Malkovich project sit around for a century?

Hit the jump a few teasers and some more information on the 100 Years movie.
