BioWare Causes Destruction in Third Teaser Trailer

Thu, 08/07/2014 - 18:45

A downtrodden girl steps towards the brink. I’d swear she could double as an elven princess. She repeats, “It’s not my fault,” as she stares into the sinkhole containing a decimated house now lying in ruins below the surface.

This was the subject of the latest teaser trailer released by BioWare for a mysterious new title.

The new trailer breaks with the horror and nightmare theme of the previous videos that were released over the past month. Both were hinting that the game would be a horror title.

But this new trailer, bathed in sunlight, may have proven otherwise.

While the new bit of eye candy could still be the subject of a nightmare, Game Informer cited the line in the trailer, “Can you control your power?” and infers the trailer’s subject is “a young person apparently struggling with some kind of superpower.” This may mean that Xbox users will get a chance to play something that is similar to the Sony exclusive Infamous series.

BioWare’s third teaser comes less than a week ahead the Gamescom conference in Germany. Experts agree that these videos are to build interest ahead of a full reveal at the conference.

When the game’s first teaser was released, a tentative title for the game leaked, Shadow Realms, but the title has not been mentioned in any of the released material. That being said, the website YOU’VE-BEEN-CHOSEN.com has appeared in each one. But chosen for what? No one is quite sure yet.

Exclusive: Writer Jeff Buhler Enters Pet Sematary Remake

Thu, 08/07/2014 - 18:36

Writer Jeff Buhler tipped us off exclusively this morning to the news that he’s come aboard director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo’s Pet Sematary reboot for Paramount as the project’s screenwriter, and we chatted with him regarding the property. Dive in!

Buhler, who is known to genre audiences for scripting 2008’s Clive Barker-inspired Midnight Meat Train and writing and directing that year’s feature Insanitarium (and who is also penning the remake of the 1990 film Jacob’s Ladder for LD Entertainment and Ghost House Pictures’ re-launch of The Grudge franchise), said of Pet Sematary, "I’ve been working with Juan Carlos on his rebooted, re-imagined version."

He added, "Paramount had a script from Matt Greenburg and then brought Juan Carlos on, and they were looking to do some work on the script, and then I came in. Juan Carlos and I collaborated on a new outline for the film, Paramount loved our pitch, and I’ve been writing the first draft of the script. It’s very exciting."

Commenting on the original 1989 horror classic, which was directed by Mary Lambert and based on the novel of the same name by horror legend Stephen King, "The original has a very special place in my heart," said Buhler. “The film fits perfectly in the time period [in which it was produced], and the source material is one of the Stephen King books that I read as a teenager that made me flip out, and I’ve read it more than once since then. It’s a fantastic book and a fantastic story.”

With the narrative revolving around a family that moves into a new home next to a cemetery with powers that allow the creatures buried in it to come back from the dead, Buhler stated of his approach to the remake, “Now that I’m a father and I have a six-year old and a two-year old, all of the horror within that story that comes from losing a child is suddenly very real and tangible and utterly tragic [to me]. I think the one element that we are trying to bring to this version of Pet Sematary is a sense of truth and honesty in the horror and really take it back to the original material. I think that in the 80’s movie it’s a little campy in places, and we are trying to get away from all of that and really get back to the core of the story, which is that of the family dealing with grief from the loss of their child and the horror of breaking the laws of nature as a result of that. Juan Carlos in particular is very focused on the emotional elements and how they could be represented in a visual context that is compelling.”

“We are being very respectful to the book,” he continued, “and we are not tying ourselves to anything in the first two films at all. We are [also] bringing in some fresh elements that speak to the spirit of the story that aren’t in either one.”

“If you look at the core of it, of what’s going on with the family, it’s an absolutely disturbing story,” Buhler offered. “I think the heart of the story has to do with Louis and his relationship with his kids and grappling with that dilemma when kids ask you what happens when you die and what you believe in. It deals with these big questions in such a personal way, and that is classic Stephen King. They are huge ideas, but they are told through a very identifiable, close-knit family unit, and that’s so powerful so we are just immersing ourselves in that - the loss, the grief, and the horrific results of people making really, really bad decisions.”

As for the tone of the script as it pertains to the eventual film’s intended rating, “I try not to get too hung up on that while writing, especially because this isn’t like a Texas Chainsaw where there’s going to be a lot of ripped open abdomens and people chewing on intestines or anything like that,” he said. “It’s already going to exist somewhere on that line between R and PG-13. If the studio feels like they need to market it as PG-13, then it will be the most hardcore PG-13 movie you could get away with. There are a couple of deaths, but with this one the horror is a little more atmospheric. The big concern of course is that you are killing children, which studios are always loathe to do, but it’s a King story and that’s at the center of it so Paramount knows what they are getting into. There’s no question that kids are gonna die.”

“We’ll be done with the first draft by the end of the summer,” Buhler said of the current status of Pet Sematary, which is being produced for Paramount by Lorenzo DiBonaventura and Mark Varhadian.

“Juan Carlos and I have been working very closely from the beginning so I think the process will be very quick. It’s not going to be one of those situations where there’s a script that the studio likes but then they bring on a director who has a bunch of new ideas and then it goes back into the scripting process for another six months. Because we are doing everything with the director from the beginning, hopefully we won’t be far from where we need to be [with the first draft] when we are done.”

Sony Teases Horror Hell Ahead of Gamescom

Thu, 08/07/2014 - 18:30

Snow may bring up the image of Christmas, family, presents, and, for me personally, climbing out of the bathroom window to have a smoke; but all the cheeriness and merriment of wintertime was bludgeoned in two as an axe falls in Sony’s latest teaser trailer. All before a foreboding ice crack.

This is the second teaser trailer Sony has released ahead of Gamescom next week. The first displayed a snowflake getting smacked by a spattering of blood. No one knew what upcoming game they were teasing, but the presence of an axe now has everyone narrowing down the subject to horror.

Pundits are suggesting that this could be one of two games. Most feel this means fans are finally going to get their hands on Until Dawn, the slasher game that was slated for the now dead PlayStation Move. There have been rumors of the game having been reworked for Sony’s upcoming virtual reality headset Project Morpheus.

But there have been some saying that this could be a teaser for an upcoming Resident Evil game. With the original Resident Evil receiving the remaster treatment in 2015, the timing for a new entry in the series would make sense. This would be a huge announcement and could easily anchor Sony’s appearance at Gamescom.

Expect a full reveal at Sony’s upcoming press conference at Gamescom on Monday, August 12th, at 10:00 am PT/1:00 pm ET.

Check out both teasers below.

Complete Saw Box Set Coming in September

Thu, 08/07/2014 - 17:22

If you're like us, then the Saw franchise is taking up some considerable space on your Blu-ray or DVD shelves. Well, Lionsgate gets that and as a result will be releasing a complete box set of all seven films. We have no details for you at press time, but we do have the artwork.

Lionsgate is currently actively developing an eighth Saw film based on the franchise created by James Wan and Leigh Whannell. They are looking to get back to their torturous ways and seeking a new direction for the franchise that took over Halloween for nearly a decade.

There appears to be no rush on Lionsgate’s part, however, as they’re seeking the perfect take to move forward. There were rumblings of a remake while many insiders say that they want to continue with Saw 8.

So what do you guys want? A remake/reboot? Another sequel? Or should well enough just be left alone? Sound off below!

A Macabre Texas Chainsaw-like Discovery Made in New York!

Thu, 08/07/2014 - 17:11

A jogger in New York could not have expected nor wished to see as much of the mad and macabre as she saw recently while on a run. Could the Sawyer clan have moved up to the Big Apple? Read on for a truly weird story!

NBC LA reported on a rather interesting story: Police launched an unusual investigation after one runner made a surprising, creepy discovery while on a jog in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park Wednesday, August 6th.

The jogger, Kate Steciw, found what appeared to be a human skeleton wearing a Brooklyn Nets hat, a T-shirt, goggles, and sweatpants standing up on display behind a wrought iron fence near a path in the southeastern portion of the park, near Ocean Avenue. Filling out the tableau were four paintings of flowers arranged in the foreground and an American flag hanging from the trees behind.

Police removed the skeleton on Wednesday and on Thursday determined that it was a plastic prop. But the twisted scene still gave residents pause.

I took a picture of it, and then I got a queasy feeling because it looked so, so real,” said Steciw, who then called the police but had a hard time getting her point across. "I was trying to explain to them that it was a skeleton standing upright, dressed in clothes with objects arranged around it."

Six More Join HBO's Westworld Series

Thu, 08/07/2014 - 14:23

Currently in the works over at HBO is a series adaptation of Westworld, a 1973 film written and directed by Michael Crichton. As shooting readies for the pilot episode, a whopping six new actors have joined the cast, and we've got all the latest info for you today.

Per TV Line, Jeffrey Wright (pictured; "Boardwalk Empire"), Rodrigo Santoro ("Lost"), and Shannon Woodward ("Raising Hope") have joined the sci-fi drama pilot. Additionally, Ingrid Bolso Berdal (Hercules), Angela Sarafyan (The Good Guys), and Simon Quarterman (The Devil Inside) have been added to the ensemble.

As previously announced, Anthony Hopkins and Evan Rachel Wood will also star in the series, revolving around a futuristic theme park where robots go berserk and attack the guests

Hopkins is set to play Dr. Robert Ford, the brilliant, taciturn, and complicated creative director, chief programmer, and chairman of the board of Westworld, who has an uncompromising creative vision for the park — and unorthodox methods of achieving it. Wood will portray Dolores Abernathy, the quintessential farm girl of the frontier West — who is about to discover that her entire idyllic existence is an elaborately constructed lie.

Below you'll find a rundown of the characters the six new actors have been cast to play.

Wright | Bernard Lowe: The brilliant and quixotic head of the park’s Programming Division, Bernard’s keen observation of human nature provides him with boundless inspiration for his life’s work: creating artificial people.

Santoro | Harlan Bell: Terrifying and brutal, with a dark sense of humor, Harlan is Westworld’s perennial “Most Wanted” bandit. He subscribes to the theory that the West is a wild place, and the only way to survive is to embrace the role of predator.

Woodward | Elsie King: A sardonic rising star in the Programming division, Elsie is charged with diagnosing the odd quirks of behaviors in the park’s hosts.

Berdal | Armistice: A savage fighter and brutal bandit, her ruthlessness with her victims is surpassed only by her abiding loyalty to her fellow outlaws.

Sarafyan | Clementine Pennyfeather: One of Westworld’s most popular attractions, every aspect of Clementine is perfectly beguiling, by design.

Quarterman | Lee Sizemore: The narrative director of Westworld, his inspired storylines consistently delight or terrify the guests — and his artistic temperament consistently grates on his colleagues.

J.J. Abrams will executive produce alongside veteran producer Jerry Weintraub and Bad Robot's Bryan Burk. "Person of Interest's" Jonathan Nolan, who co-wrote the pilot, will executive produce and direct as well. Lisa Joy co-wrote the pilot and will exec produce. Kathy Lingg will co-EP and Athena Wickham is a producer on the Warner Bros. Television drama. David Coatsworth is set as a co-EP and line producer with Susie Ekins set as a co-producer. "Westworld" hails from Abrams' Bad Robot Productions, Jerry Weintraub Productions, and Kilter Films.

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For - The Cast and Crew Speak!

Thu, 08/07/2014 - 13:00

You know you’ve arrived – not just as a filmmaker but as a human being – when President Barack Obama comes over to your pad to hang out poolside and have some lunch. Though Robert Rodriguez was coy about that bit of info slipping out at the Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For press conference in Beverly Hills last week.

He did admit he made pizza pies for the prez. “Yes, we had POTUS pizza,” he quipped.

Also on hand for the Dimension Films event were Rodriguez’s co-director, Frank Miller, and stars Jessica Alba, Josh Brolin, Eva Green and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Based on Miller's Dark Horse Comics series, the sequel includes two segments derived from existing storylines A Dame to Kill For and Just Another Saturday Night plus brand-new original stories The Big Fat Kill and The Long, Bad Night. Favorite characters seen in the first film are back (with a vengeance, of course!): Alba as exotic dancer Nancy, Bruce Willis as Hartigan, Mickey Rourke as muscle Marv, and there are some new faces as well -- Green as femme fatale Ava, Gordon-Levitt as lucky Johnny, and Brolin slips in seamlessly as Dwight (who was played by Clive Owen in the first film).

The sequel has Rodriguez and Miller recreating the stark, dark and contrasty look of the first flick, shooting entirely against a green screen and in 3D. The scenery was added later, and they took great care in digitally manipulating the lighting and design in post-production. “It’s like being an artist,” said Rodriguez. “You pencil out your sketch first, then you fill it in.

For Miller’s part, he thinks the whole process is rather like reverse-engineering. “We take a movie and make it into a book.

Q: What was it like shooting with so much green screen?

Josh Brolin: You have to find the cadence. The cadence doesn't come to you. It's the kind of movie you really have to dive into. You can't manipulate the movie. And you can't manipulate Frank Miller's mind.

Frank Miller: Many have tried.

Miller said that although some things are ingrained – “I draw the way I draw,” regardless of whether or not he knows who might be playing certain individuals in a film – in some ways he’s evolved as a storyteller. “I am far more aware of character than I used to be,” he said.

Q: How did you newbies feel, stepping into the legendary Sin City?

Josh Brolin: I was a big fan of the first movie, but this one is different. The opportunity to be able to do it was really unnerving, but when I watched it afterwards, it was one of the few movies that I've done where I thought, 'Thank God I'm in this movie. I'm really proud to be in this movie.' I would go see a few times if weren't in it, but because I'm in it, it would seem pretentious.

Q: What did you like best about it, Joe?

Joseph Gordon-Levitt: I liked the cover page of the script, where it said, “Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller.” [What I really liked about it was] you get to become a cartoon in a way. We're not in the real world, in Sin City.

In fact, Levitt revealed that it was totally unreal from Day One. On his very first day or work, he shot two surreal scenes, back-to-back: one with Christopher Lloyd and one with Lady Gaga!

Eva Green: Playing Ava, it was a challenge to still be believable and lie all the time... she's so bad, so that was very fun. No conscience. No sense of right or wrong. She's pretty evil. But it was interesting to play all these different women in one.

Though the actors had some challenges, the co-directors’ mettle was also tested. It’s not easy to top an unforgettable first film, or at least try to compare. Dashing the hopes of Starbucks scribes everywhere, Rodriguez said the secret to great writing is a great environment. “Everything around you needs to be inspiring,” he said.

Q: How has Nancy evolved since the original film?

Jessica Alba: Nancy is devastated. She's an alcoholic, she's still dancing, and she's not happy about it. That wasn’t easy, all those skimpy costumes, because I'm a mom. I have two kids. I run a company. I'm not this drunk stripper, so I really had to get into that headspace of the character. But I liked playing a character who goes from being a sweet, innocent, naive victim to this very powerful warrior who takes her life into her own hands and gets revenge.

Revenge is indeed the name of the gory game in Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For. Although it’s not a horror film, the body count is just as high as any – not to mention eye-gouges, eviscerations, bludgeoning and blood (mostly white… but just as flowing as the red stuff). See for yourself when the film opens nationwide on August 22, 2014.

Following the groundbreaking film that grossed $160 million worldwide, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For reunites Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller for the next chapter in this trailblazing series.

Weaving together stunning visuals with an uncompromising, hard-boiled plot, the film promises more lurid tales from the various residents of Basin City. With a star-studded cast that includes Eva Green, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Jessica Alba, Juno Temple, Josh Brolin, Jaime King, Rosario Dawson, Mickey Rourke, Jamie Chung, Lady Gaga, and Christopher Meloni, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For ensures an experience like no other!
