First Image from the Set of The Legend of Barney Thomson

Tue, 06/10/2014 - 18:02

Actor Robert Carlyle is making his directorial debut on the new horror comedy The Legend of Barney Thomson (formerly The Long Midnight of Barney Thomson), and we have the first image from the set for you. Check it out!

Myriad Pictures announced Tuesday that principal photography has begun in the UK on the darkly humorous film which will star two-time Academy Award winner Emma Thompson (Saving Mr. Banks, Sense and Sensibility), Ray Winstone (Snow White and the Huntsman, The Departed, Hugo), and Carlyle, who will also play the title role.

The script is based on a widely popular series of novels by Douglas Lindsay and was adapted for the screen by BAFTA award-winner Colin McLaren (Donkeys) and Richard Cowan. Myriad Pictures is handling worldwide sales on the film.

In The Legend of Barney Thomson, Carlyle plays the title character, a downtrodden Glaswegian barber who inadvertently stumbles into serial murder, with both absurd and macabre consequences. Complicating matters further, Barney’s formidable mother Cemolina (Thompson) cheerfully emasculates him at every turn, causing a bloody and comedic chain of events. While Barney clumsily tries to cover his tracks, Glasgow police inspector Holdall (Winstone) fights his own battles within his inept homicide department as he tries to solve the crime of the century. A black comedy of errors unfolds as the police try to capture the murderer at large.

Additional cast members include Brian Pettifer (Vanity Fair, Donkeys, Amadeus), Sir Tom Courtney (Quartet, The Golden Compass), Martin Compston (Filth, The Disappearance of Alice Creed), James Cosmo (Braveheart, The Chronicles of Narnia, Trainspotting), Ashley Jensen (The Lobster, How to Train Your Dragon), as well as Kevin Guthrie (Sunshine on Leith) and Stephen McCole (Rushmore, The Acid House).

Academy Award winning prosthetic makeup designer Mark Coulier (Harry Potter franchise, The Iron Lady, X Men First Class) provides the prosthetic makeup; Fabian Wagner (TV’s “Sherlock,” “Game of Thrones,” Frankenstein) serves as the director of photography on the film, and Ross Dempster (art director of Godzilla, 50/50, and 2012) is the project's production designer.

The Legend of Barney Thomson is currently shooting in and around the Glasgow area.

    E3 2014: Developers Bring New The Evil Within Footage

    Mon, 06/09/2014 - 19:38

    I scheduled my entire day around the last 10 minutes. There’s a lot going on at E3, but what I most wanted to see was the new gameplay video for the upcoming survival horror title The Evil Within.

    Continuing horror’s tradition of reacting to the generation before it, Shinji Mikami is reacting against the action orientation of current horror games by returning to the strategy element that made him famous in the Resident Evil franchise.

    Strategy, that is the major element showcased by developers today. They were very clear that fleeing enemies is often the best choice for overcoming an encounter. In this game you will need to count your bullets and pick your battles.

    The Evil Within's strategy element is so entrenched in the game it even comes into play when using a health pack. While the small health packs will have no adverse effects, a large one will cause the player’s vision to be distorted and make them more susceptible to nearby enemies.

    The Evil Within was recently delayed from an August release to October 21st. To learn more, visit the official The Evil Within website.

    E3 2014: New Dead Rising DLC Available Now

    Mon, 06/09/2014 - 17:49

    There was a little something for horror fans at this year’s E3, especially those who enjoy things a little campy. In a press conference focused on tongue-in-cheek fun, Microsoft revealed DLC for the Xbox exclusive Dead Rising 3.

    Falling in-line with the less than serious tone of the Microsoft outing, Capcom’s latest DLC for the franchise makes fun of itself in its War and Peace of a title, Super Ultra Dead Rising 3 Arcade Remix Hyper Edition EX Plus Alpha, a play on the company’s many Street Fighter 2 versions of years past.

    Capcom is celebrating its 31st anniversary and is using the new Dead Rising DLC to celebrate its history. Players can cosplay as characters from across Capcom’s storied past. From Street Fighter to Final Fight, players can expect a hellacious romp through touching nostalgia as they slay zombies while being transported to a time when Ryu ruled the world.

    And then the bomb dropped. As is the trend with today’s software announcements, the Dead Rising 3 DLC is available right NOW, only on Xbox Live for $9.99.

    E3 2014: EA Spews Fire with Dragon Age: Inquisition

    Mon, 06/09/2014 - 17:06

    For anyone who comes to any situation armed with a bag of dice and a player’s handbook, two new videos were revealed at E3 today for Dragon Age: Inquisition.

    During the Microsoft press conference, EA unveiled a new trailer for the game, showcasing some of the cut-scene graphics contained within the new action RPG title.

    But during EA’s press conference, all hell absolutely broke loose with the reveal of Dragon Age’s money maker, dragon battles. The video displays a short clash with a high dragon. The beast looks absolutely terrifying, spewing fire and adorned with horns that look more intimidating than a Japanese wrestler.




    Fans also learned a little more about the characters they will be controlling in Dragon Age: Inquisition. The recently revealed Sera is a wildcard reactionist, and The Iron Bull is a mercenary, attempting to escape his past. It looks as if EA really wants to stress interesting characters. It’s a promising start for a series that is very much based on hosting very immersive cast.

    Dragon Age: Inquisition is slated for a fall 2014 release.

    New Harbinger Down Trailer Is Monsterific!

    Mon, 06/09/2014 - 16:31

    Back in May of 2013 we told you about Harbinger Down, a tense, claustrophobic creature film that will feature only practical animatronic and makeup effects. We've followed the movie through every phase including a successful crowd funding campaign. Today the hard work and faith pays off!

    Alec Gillis wrote and directed the flick with ADI co-founder Tom Woodruff, Jr. producing. Lance Henriksen, Matt Winston, Camille Balsamo, and Giovonnie Samuels star.

    Synopsis
    A group of grad students have booked passage on the fishing trawler Harbinger to study the effects of global warming on a pod of Orcas in the Bering Sea. When the ship’s crew dredges up a recently thawed piece of old Soviet space wreckage, things get downright deadly. It seems that the Russians experimented with tardigrades, tiny resilient animals able to withstand the extremes of space radiation. The creatures survived, but not without mutation. Now the crew is exposed to aggressively mutating organisms. And after being locked in ice for 3 decades, the creatures aren’t about to give up the warmth of human companionship.

    E3 2014: CD Projekt Red Debuts New Witcher 3 Gameplay Trailer

    Mon, 06/09/2014 - 16:04

    Just when the audience was breathing hot and heavy at the burden of ecstasy that was the Microsoft press conference at this year’s E3, the team behind The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt took the stage.

    The definite peak in the excitement was for the purpose of debuting a new gameplay trailer from their upcoming title, The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt, which showed off the game’s protagonist, Geralt, on a hunt for a griffon.

    We saw some of Geralt’s special abilities as he was able to heighten his senses to locate his prey. In a very promising next-gen touch, after being hit with a crossbow bolt, the Griffon retreated but left a trail of blood which the player can use to track it. Aside from showing gamers that this will be a true next-gen experience, any excuse to make a game bloodier is a good one.

    A very promising feature of the trailer was the realistic combat. I noticed how, during a brief skirmish with enemies, they were stunned and stumbled after each blow by Geralt’s heavy bastard sword… a bastard indeed.

    The press conference was a showcase of amazing graphics, and Microsoft really appears to be pushing the pace in regard to this field. In a show of graphic ultra fidelity, The Witcher 3 stood out amongst all other titles. Look for this game to quickly be awarded greatest graphics of all time!

    E3 2014: Lara's Back in Rise of the Tomb Raider

    Mon, 06/09/2014 - 15:53

    The second the climbing axe came out, I got an inkling. By the time I saw the crosshair on a bow, I was screaming, “Oh god, let this be a new Tomb Raider!” My screams of the unholy have been answered as Crystal Dynamics has announced its latest soon to be mega hit, Rise of the Tomb Raider.

    The game will pick up where the reissued Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition left off as the trailer shows Lara attempting to pick up the pieces of her life after her horrible encounter with the island cultists.

    The developers promise the game will take place across multiple hostile locations. After an outpouring of outrage from fans, the series will return to setting Tomb Raider in its trademark tombs that brought the franchise to fame in the first place.

    Rise of the Tomb Raider is coming off of the franchise's very strong showing in Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition and already looks to be a must play.

    Rise of the Tomb Raider will be available during the holiday season of 2015.

    Universal Cable Productions Acquires Robert Charles Wilson's Spin and Plans Event Series

    Mon, 06/09/2014 - 15:42

    Universal Cable Productions has acquired the rights to the Hugo Award winning, best-selling science fiction novel Spin by Robert Charles Wilson with the goal of developing it into an event TV series. Read on for the details.

    Book Synopsis:
    One night in October when he was ten years old, Tyler Dupree stood in his back yard and watched the stars go out. They all flared into brilliance at once, then disappeared, replaced by a flat, empty black barrier. He and his best friends, Jason and Diane Lawton, had seen what became known as the Big Blackout. It would shape their lives.

    The effect is worldwide. The sun is now a featureless disk—a heat source, rather than an astronomical object. The moon is gone, but tides remain. Not only have the world's artificial satellites fallen out of orbit, their recovered remains are pitted and aged, as though they'd been in space far longer than their known lifespans. As Tyler, Jason, and Diane grow up, a space probe reveals a bizarre truth: The barrier is artificial, generated by huge alien artifacts. Time is passing faster outside the barrier than inside—more than a hundred million years per year on Earth. At this rate, the death throes of the sun are only about forty years in our future.

    Jason, now a promising young scientist, devotes his life to working against this slow-moving apocalypse. Diane throws herself into hedonism, marrying a sinister cult leader who's forged a new religion out of the fears of the masses.

    Earth sends terraforming machines to Mars to let the onrush of time do its work, turning the planet green. Next they send humans... and immediately get back an emissary with thousands of years of stories to tell about the settling of Mars. Then Earth's probes reveal that an identical barrier has appeared around Mars. Jason, desperate, seeds near space with self-replicating machines that will scatter copies of themselves outward from the sun—and report back on what they find.

    Life on Earth is about to get much, much stranger.
