Here’s where you can find it starting tomorrow.  Read More »

Noah Hawley is a busy man these days. The fascinating storyteller is perhaps best known for creating the hit television series Fargo, based on the Coen brothers’ classic, as well as for several near-misses on projects that may or may not ever come to fruition. Last we heard, however, Hawley was gearing up for a surprising journey into the Alien universe — this time, in the medium of television.

Anybody that has seen Quentin Dupieux’s Rubber knows that this man can make a movie about anything. His breakout 2010 feature is about a sentient tire that comes to life one day and has adventures rolling along down a desert highway. Oh, and it can blow up people’s heads when it wants to.

And yes, that movie rules. It’s like a hard-R weirdo Pixar movie and there’s nothing else like it.

So it should come as no surprise that a giant fly turns up in the trailer for Dupieux’s newest film, Mandibles, and everybody just rolls with it. Sure, why not?

Let’s take a look at the trailer, shall we?

Hell, last year he even teased a potential sequel to The Last Witch Hunter, which I’m pretty sure no one but Diesel has any interest in. Now old Vin is at it again, saying that we might get another Riddick movie.
