Warner Premiere has released a new batch of photos, giving us a good look of the vampires in Lost Boys 2: The Tribe. Four more after the jump.
“Take that you *&%$ DVD!”
A week ago, we ripped an official decision by Warner Bros. to release Lost Boys 2: The Tribe straight to DVD, and asked for fans of the seminal ’80s horror flick back us up like Nanook. According to Corey Feldman via his ever-relevant blog, the film could still go theatrical and a final decision will be made in February. This is one case where fan feedback can play a huge part, so again, go crazy with the Cheez Whiz. Here’s Feldmanâ€¦
â€¦..1 more thing there is a nasty rumor circulating that a decision to release LB2 straight to DVD has been madeâ€¦..THAT IS CATEGORICALLY UNTRUE!!! NO decision has been made as of yet they will be voting on it next month so if you are a LB2 supporter and want to see it on the big screen now is the time to rise up and let the studio know by sending them your thoughts and concerns. There has been a lot of buzz about this and I just don’t want any defeatist or negative attitudes to hamper the positive energy. It is still aliveâ€¦..
And in true Frog Brothers fashion, Feldman got a new Lost Boys war story on the last day of filming. Call us half-full, but this makes us want to see it moreâ€¦
I also wanted to say thanx to all of those who wrote in, concerned about my casted arm. No I didn’t brake it in a bar room brawlâ€¦â€¦.(joking). I actually tore two ligaments while working on LB2. It was during a fight scene on the last night and we were working on giant rocks outside, and it started raining and during a chase I slipped and bent it backwards. It is a weird injury, actually worse than a break because I have been to physical therapy and had it casted and braced and nothing seems to work. At least I got a black one so you don’t notice it as much. It has been three months and it still hurts. But that’s all right anything for the love of artâ€¦.or at least keeping myself employed(joking again)â€¦..(kinda).
We’ll put up with all of the “thanx” in the world for this type of from-the-set minutiae. But wait! For every growing Stimpy shadow there is a shivering, shrinking Ren: cue Corey Haim. It was confirmed yesterday that A&E has picked up a second 10-episode season of The Two Coreys. So, Haim has a job, hope for Lost Boys 2 lives on, and this lemonade is mighty tasty, dare we say that life is good?
CoreyFeldman.net offers up two new photos from Warner Home Video’s Lost Boys 2: The Tribe. Click on the image above to enlarge slightly. I’m still hoping Warner gives this direct-to-dvd sequel a theatrical run. It can’t be THAT bad, can it?
Mad Movies has the first photo of Corey Feldman in action as Edgar Frog in Warner Home Video’s Lost Boys 2: The Tribe. In the photo above, Frog fires a Holy Water Bazooka, likely at some villainous vampire foe.
Official Plot Description: “This sequel takes us to the shady surf city of Luna Bay, California, where vampires quickly dispatch anyone who crosses their path. Into this dark world arrive Chris Emerson (Hilgenbrink) and his younger sister, Nicole (Reeser). Having just lost their parents in a car accident, the siblings move in with their eccentric Aunt Jillian and become new prey for the locals’ way of life. When Nicole unwittingly falls for a local vampire, Chris must locate and destroy the gang’s lifeline before his sister’s transformation is complete; to do this Chris finds himself relying on the expertise of none other than Edgar Frog (Feldman). Subtle references to characters from the original film, and cameos from returning actors offer homage to the Lost Boys legend and set a sinister tone of impending doom.”
Jamison Newlander also returns as Edgar’s brother Alan. Merwin Mondesir, Shaun Sipos, and Kyle Cassie play a group of vampires led by Angus Sutherland’s character. Due to a problem with immigration, Corey Haim was unable to reprise his role as Sam Emerson.
Warner Bros. is still discussing whether to release The Lost Boys 2 theatrically, as the project was first conceived as a direct-to-DVD movie. I don’t care if this is a second rate DVD sequel, I really hope Warner releases this in theaters. Why not do a few midnight shows in the major markets?
