If you’re a fan of genre film, you’ve had September 22-29 circled on your calendar for months. That’s when one of the most fun, depraved and intimate film festivals in the country once again invades Austin, Texas. It’s called Fantastic Fest and it features a huge blend of action, horror and sci-fi movies that most people haven’t heard of at the time, but we all hear about after. This year is no different. They announced the first wave of films in July and today we’ve got the second wave. Most of them are new to many of us, but then there are a few that we’ve covered in the past: Nacho Vigalondo‘s Extraterrestrial, Ti West‘s The Innkeepers, Lars Von Trier‘s Melancholia and Adam Wingard‘s You’re Next just to name a few. After the jump, read the full breakdown of the second wave of films. Read More »
The last time we checked in with Extraterrestrial, the new film from the director of the acclaimed Timecrimes, we had a couple new images, and those had followed on the heels of two really fun posters. (One of which is captured in part above.) Now we’ve got those two images in better quality along with a couple more.
Why should this flick, from Nacho Vigalondo, be on your radar? Those who’ve seen Timecrimes (which, yes, is still the object of a US remake effort) will know right off; for those who haven’t, let’s just say that it is an alien invasion love story. If it displays even part of the warped but adroit skill of Timecrimes, it will be worth prioritizing. Check out the images below. Read More »
From the instant the credits rolled on Nacho Vigalondo‘s directorial debut film Timecrimes, most of us began eagerly anticipating his follow-up. It took a few years but he finally announced that film would be Extraterrestrial, an alien invasion love story which broke out with some very cool teaser images. Vigalondo’s recently completed that film in time for the Cannes sales barrage, revealing the first poster as well as some images too. Plus, Bleeding Cool just found out that he’s lined up what could very well be his follow-up to Extraterrestrial, an adaptation of Mark Millar‘s upcoming comic book series Supercrooks. Read more about both projects after the jump. Read More »
