Footage from Silent Hill Revelation 3D premiered recently at Comic Con, but the film was in a difficult position, as the footage debuted in between presentations of other, much bigger films.
Now the trailer for this Silent Hill sequel has gone online, and it suggests that this sequel is a lot more effects-heavy than the Christoph Waltz-directed original from 2006. (Er, make that Christophe Gans, though I’d really like to see Waltz go back in time to do it.) Heather Mason (Adelaide Clemens), whose father (Sean Bean) has his own experience with Silent Hill, in a way that bears some explaining in this movie, is pulled back to the shadowy burg where demons and traps and multiple layers of reality await.

For horror franchises, getting turned into a maze at Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights is a badge of honor. Hostel, Scream, The Thing, A Nightmare on Elm Street, the Texas Chainsaw Massacre and others have all been immortalized as interactive, three-dimensional experiences and this year, two new properties are being added to the list. Silent Hill and The Walking Dead will each be represented at the seasonal event, which takes place every Fall Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Studios Orlando. Also, DreamWorks has signed a deal to exclusively license their characters – such as Shrek, Madagascar and others – to a new theme park being developed in northern New Jersey.

You might have forgotten that there is a new Silent Hill film that went into production last year, and has been in the editing room in recent weeks. Seems like the movie comes up every once in a while, then news on it goes quiet for months at a time.
But with a relatively well-received new Silent Hill game on shelves (I liked it OK, anyway) and an anthology of remastered classic chapters from the series also arriving, this is probably the best time to make a deal to distribute the new movie. And so Silent Hill: Revelation 3D has been picked up by Open Road, which will release the movie on October 26 of this year. Read More »
The Silent Hill sequel, Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, is shooting right now in Toronto, and keeps adding cast members as it does. Director Michael J. Bassett (Solomon Kane) already had Adelaide Clemens and Kit Harington starring, with Radha Mitchell, Sean Bean and Deborah Kara Unger reprising their Silent Hill roles in some unknown capacity.
Now a press release announces that the film also boasts Carrie-Ann Moss as Claudia Wolf and Malcolm McDowell as Leonard Wolf. In the video game Silent Hill 3, Claudia is a major character (modeled to look like Julianne Moore, actually) who sets a good chunk of the plot in motion, and isn’t exactly a passive or sane presence. Read more about her here (and about her father Leonard here) but be warned of possible spoilers for the film. The header image for this article, by the way, is a new still of Adelaide Clemens and Kit Harinton in the film, that was supplied with the press release. Click it to enlarge.
After the break, the Dean Koontz adaptation Odd Thomas gets a young actress and Tyler Perry’s next finds a romantic lead. Read More »
When we first heard about Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, the film sounded more like a spin-off than a sequel to Christoph Gans’ 2006 film Silent Hill. Michael J. Bassett (Solomon Kane) wrote and is directing this new film right now in Toronto, with Adelaide Clemens and Kit Harington starring.
But now three major cast members from the previous film have been added. Though we don’t know how big a presence they’ll have in the new film, Sean Bean, Radha Mitchell and Deborah Kara Unger have all joined the cast of Silent Hill: Revelation 3D. More info and a photo of Radha Mitchell in the new film, after the break. Read More »
Above is the first image of Adelaide Clemens (X-Men Origins : Wolverine and, should it actually shoot, Mad Max: Fury Road) in the sequel to Silent Hill. What sequel to Silent Hill, you ask? As was announced late last year, this one is called Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, and it begins shooting today in Toronto. Michael J. Bassett (Solomon Kane) is directing; more info after the break.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Silent Hill wasn’t a huge success at the box office—domestically it failed to even gross beyond its $50 million budget—but apparently between its worldwide gross ($98 million) and DVD sales, it made enough that a sequel is now in order. The sequel, which has been given the title Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, is confirmed as being shot in 3D rather than post-converted (as should be the case with all productions from now on), and also has a writer and director on board to boot.
