Backcountry – Important Exclusive Clip

Fri, 03/27/2015 - 10:15

Happy Friday, kids! On tap right now we have an exclusive clip from Adam MacDonald’s Backcountry (review) to go with your morning cup of joe. Knock it back and enjoy!

Reminiscent of true-life survival stories like 127 Hours and gritty animal encounter thrillers like The Grey, Backcountry follows an urban couple who embark on a camping trip in the Canadian backcountry. When they enter a predatory bear’s territory, their trip turns into an horrific tale of tragedy, will, and survival.

Synopsis:
Based on a true story, BACKCOUNTRY follows an urban couple who go camping in the Canadian wilderness – where unimaginable beauty sits alongside our most primal fears. Alex (Jeff Roop) is a seasoned outdoorsman while Jenn (Missy Peregrym), a corporate lawyer, is not. After much convincing, and against her better judgment, she agrees to let him take her deep into a Provincial Park to one of his favorite spots – the secluded Blackfoot Trail.

On their first night, deep in the forest, they have an unsettling encounter with Brad (Eric Balfour), a strange alpha male with eyes for Jenn who may or may not be following them. Alex’s desire to quickly reach Blackfoot Trail only intensifies. They push farther and farther into the woods, Alex stubbornly insisting that he remembers the way. After three days their path disappears; they are hopelessly lost. Without food or water, they struggle to find their way back, the harsh conditions bringing out the best and worst in them, pushing their already fragile relationship to the breaking point.

When they realize they have entered a bear’s territory, being lost suddenly becomes the least of their problems. Terror, horror, will, and survival become paramount.

WWE and Gene Simmons Launch Genre Label; First Film Project Announced – Temple

Thu, 03/26/2015 - 22:50

Given the showmanship of the WWE and the rock star ways of KISS’s Demon, Gene Simmons, we’ve got some news for you that’s guaranteed to bring on the chills! Read on for your first word about Erebus Pictures!

WWE Studios has announced a new partnership with media mogul Gene Simmons to launch label Erebus Pictures, which will finance and produce elevated horror movies. The new venture has locked a three-picture co-production deal starting with Temple, which was originally acquired and developed by WWE Studios.

Erebus Pictures, named after the Greek primordial deity representing the personification of darkness, will shop worldwide rights on all titles and will leverage WWE’s extensive platforms from weekly TV shows, including WWE’s flagship programs “Monday Night Raw” and “SmackDown,” digital, social media, and WWE Network to market its titles.

The horror genre continues to fascinate me as it proves to be endlessly thrilling and engaging for audiences,” said the KISS icon, who has sold more than 100 million albums worldwide after nearly 41 years in rock ‘n roll and more than 8 seasons and 167 episodes on his own reality TV show. “I am so thrilled to be working with the masterminds from WWE Studios in launching Erebus Pictures.

Horror films fall into a genre that thrives on genuine passion, and I believe this partnership truly capitalizes on that sentiment and supports our vision,” said Michael Luisi, President of WWE Studios. “I am confident that Erebus will provide audiences with an unprecedented horror experience.

Temple is written by Matt Savelloni (Exile To Babylon) and will follow a team of highly trained operatives who find themselves trapped inside an isolated military compound after its artificial intelligence is suddenly shut down. While investigating the source of the malfunction, the crew begins to experience strange and horrific phenomena as they attempt to uncover who or what killed the team previously stationed at the compound.

A director for Temple will be announced shortly with principal photography to take place this summer.

Erebus Pictures’ second feature will go into production later this year so expect lots more soon!

So How Does Terminator Genisys Relate to the Original Films? New Details!

Thu, 03/26/2015 - 19:09

We’ve all seen the trailer, and speculation has run rampant regarding just how Terminator Genisys will tie in to the other films in the franchise. Today some new clues have come.

From the SlashFilm website:

“Terminator Genisys was described as not a traditional remake or a continuation or a sequel, but more of a reimagining — kind of like JJ Abrams’ Star Trek. The film will allow moviegoers to experience the story we have already seen, but in a different way. The story features a divergent timeline that goes off [in] an entirely different direction, and taking [us] down a road we’ve never been on before. This is not a direct sequel; there is no straight line from A to B.”

Make of that what you will! In Terminator Genisys Arnold Schwarzenegger stars as the T-800, Emilia Clarke as Sarah Conner, Jai Courtney as Kyle Reese, Jason Clarke as John Conner, and Matt Smith as John Conner’s ally. Byung-hun Lee, Aaron V. Williamson, Dayo Okeniyi, and J.K. Simmons also star. Alan Taylor directs.

To stay up-to-date on all things Cyberdine related, visit the official Terminator Genisys Facebook page, follow Terminator Genisys on Twitter and dig Terminator Genisys on Instagram.

Synopsis:
When John Connor (Jason Clarke), leader of the human resistance, sends Sgt. Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) back to 1984 to protect Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke) and safeguard the future, an unexpected turn of events creates a fractured timeline. Now, Sgt. Reese finds himself in a new and unfamiliar version of the past, where he is faced with unlikely allies, including the Guardian (Arnold Schwarzenegger), dangerous new enemies, and an unexpected new mission: To reset the future…

But little do they know that Drac’s grumpy and very old, old, old school dad, Vlad, is about to pay a family visit to the hotel. And when Vlad finds out that his great-grandson is not a pure blood – and humans are now welcome at Hotel Transylvania – things are going to get batty!

Preacher Casts Cassidy – Joseph Gilgun

Tue, 03/24/2015 - 15:50

If you’re at all a fan of the Preacher comic series, chances are you’re extremely fond of the vampire Cassidy. He, in short, just rules. Today some casting news has come as Deadline is reporting that British actor Joseph Gilgun (“Misfits,” “This Is England”) has joined the drama pilot based on Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s cult 1990s comic.

The project, from Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, Sony TV, and AMC Studios, is about Jesse Custer, a conflicted Preacher in a small Texas town who merges with a creature that has escaped from heaven and develops the ability to make anyone do anything he says. Along with his ex-girlfriend, Tulip (Ruth Negga), and an Irish vampire named Cassidy (Gilgun), the three embark on a journey to literally find God.

Jesse’s sidekick Cassidy is described as the most wild-ass, bestest “bro” you’d ever want to meet. He may be 100 years dead, but no one’s more boisterously alive than Proinsias Cassidy. An incorrigible mischief-maker, Cassidy’s up for anything — joyriding, bungee-jumping, bank robbing, peyote dropping. He’s also a relentless conversationalist with opinions on everything from religion to politics to pop culture to theories on why people are better able to tolerate the odor of their own flatulence.

In addition to Negga, Gilgun joins Ian Colletti, who was cast as Eugene Root, aka Arseface. Dominic Cooper has been in conversations for the lead, Jesse.

The X-Files Officially BACK as 6-Episode Event Series!

Good news for you fans of “The X-Files” who were hoping that something would come of this past weekend’s news that a limited return for the show was close to being greenlit. We have the full official details right here, and fans of the show are certain to be doing the happy dance in 5… 4… 3… 2… 1!

From the Press Release:
Thirteen years after the original series run, Fox has ordered the next mind-bending chapter of “THE X-FILES,” a thrilling, six-episode event series which will be helmed by creator/executive producer Chris Carter with stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson re-inhabiting their roles as iconic FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. This marks the momentous return of the Emmy- and Golden Globe Award-winning pop culture phenomenon, which remains one of the longest-running sci-fi series in network television history.

The announcement was made today by Dana Walden and Gary Newman, Chairmen and CEOs of Fox Television Group, and Chris Carter, creator and executive producer of “THE X-FILES.” Production on “THE X-FILES” event series is set to begin in summer 2015. Further details remain under wraps and will be announced at a later date.

“I think of it as a 13-year commercial break,” said Carter. “The good news is the world has only gotten that much stranger, a perfect time to tell these six stories.”

“We had the privilege of working with Chris on all nine seasons of ‘THE X-FILES’ – one of the most rewarding creative experiences of our careers – and we couldn’t be more excited to explore that incredible world with him again,” remarked Newman and Walden. “’THE X-FILES’ was not only a seminal show for both the studio and the network, it was a worldwide phenomenon that shaped pop culture – yet remained a true gem for the legions of fans who embraced it from the beginning. Few shows on television have drawn such dedicated fans as ‘THE X-FILES’, and we’re ecstatic to give them the next thrilling chapter of Mulder and Scully they’ve been waiting for.”

“THE X-FILES” originally premiered in September 1993. Over the course of its nine-season run, the influential series went from breakout sci-fi favorite to massive global hit and became one of the most successful television dramas of all time. The show, which earned 16 Emmy Awards, five Golden Globes, and a Peabody Award, follows FBI special agents Scully (Anderson) and Mulder (Duchovny) as they investigate unexplained cases – “X-Files” – for which the only answers involve paranormal phenomena.

Produced by 20th Century Fox Television and Ten Thirteen Productions, “THE X-FILES” is created and executive-produced by Chris Carter.
