There are plenty of movies set during various zombie apocalypses, but Pandemic pulls you right into the thick of the action with a first-person POV. Rachel Nichols plays a doctor who arrives in Los Angeles to stop the epidemic from taking over the entire world — though based on the conventions of the genre, I’m going to go ahead and guess that her efforts will prove ultimately futile. Mekhi Phifer, Alfie Allen, Pat Healy, and Missi Pyle also star. Check out the first Pandemic trailer after the jump. Read More »

If you adore films about people who are trapped in an enclosed space and forced to fight to the death, as the fates of their loved ones hangs in the balance, you probably went out of your way to see The Hunger Games: Catching Fire this past weekend. If you then walked out of the theater disappointed because it wasn’t nearly bloody and gritty and grown-up enough, then Raze may be the film for you.
Directed by Josh C. Waller, this action-horror stars Zoë Bell (Death Proof) and Rachel Nichols as two women who are abducted and wake to find themselves in a concrete bunker with 48 other women. They then realize that they must kill the others, because if they refuse to fight or lose, their families will suffer. Tracie Thoms, Doug Jones, Sherilyn Fenn, and Bruce Thomas also star. Watch the trailer after the jump.

Before his tragic death last month, Glee star Cory Monteith had wrapped two indies to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. The trailer for one of these, Josh C. Waller‘s McCanick, has just hit the web.
In it, Monteith plays Simon Weeks, who’s fresh off a stint in prison and in possession of a very dangerous secret. David Morse stars as the short-tempered cop who years ago helped put him away, and now is desperate to make sure Simon doesn’t tell what he knows. Watch the video after the jump.

Way back before Damon Lindelof became the world-famous creator of Lost, he was just an ordinary Hollywood screenwriter looking for a career boost. At one point, in an attempt to impress Carlton Cuse (who would, of course, eventually serve as showrunner with Lindelof on Lost) Lindelof reportedly penned a one-act play titled Ollie Klublershturf vs. The Nazis. Director Skot Bright turned that play into a short film in 2010, pulling together a cast that includes a pre-Thor Chris Hemsworth among several other recognizable faces. Watch the full short after the jump. Read More »
Here’s the latest trailer for Conan the Barbarian, in which Jason Momoa, under the direction of Marcus Nispel, seeks to reanimate the cinematic vitality of Robert E. Howard‘s signature character. Arnold Schwarzenegger created the version many know and love, and he leaves some big shoes to fill. Previous trailers and pics have left us doubtful that it is really going to work. (But also hopeful for a positive outcome.) Now take a gander at the latest trailer, from the UK, in which a young Conan picks up a sword on his way to becoming 20-something Conan. See if this does the trick. Read More »

Here’s what you need to know about the new red-band trailer for Conan the Barbarian: there is a shot in which Conan (Jason Momoa) knocks out a horse with a giant chain. There is also a lot of blood, a total absence of plot, a little bit of almost safe for work sex, and the worst piece of electro-tinged cock rock to hit a trailer in months.
Sound good? Then hit the jump to learn what a barbarian wants when he is thirsty. (Hint: it’s not what plants crave.) Read More »

Looks like Universal got the jump on everyone at the end of this past week by announcing a boatload of release dates. Others are falling in line to grab their own weekends, and so we’ve got new dates for Lionsgate’s 3D version of Conan, which now seems to be officially called Conan 3D, and Sony’s 21 Jump Street, the latter of which is being pushed back from a 2011 date and had previously been dated as a ‘Winter 2012’ film.

Benicio Del Toro has signed to play g-man Jack Garcia in Making Jack Falcone. Garcia targeted the Gambino family, and was responsible for taking down dozens of made men. Garcia is Cuban-born, but managed to play an Italian so successfully that he was invited to become a made man himself. Steven Soderbergh is producing the film, with a script by Che screenwriter Peter Buchman based on Garcia’s memoir about the Gambino operation.
Garcia also worked a lot of other undercover jobs for the FBI — a surprising thing given that he hardly blends into a crowd. At 6’4″ and 390 pounds, he’s exactly the opposite of the image typically held of a guy who can worm into many different organizations. But Garcia is charming, too — take a look at the 60 Minutes interview clip embedded after the break to see what he’s like. [Deadline Hollywood]
After the break, four voices for Smurfs and a love interest for Conan. Read More »
