New ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Character Posters Shred! #SDCC

bloody disgusting - Mon, 07/28/2014 - 12:05

In theaters May 15,2015, Warner Bros. released these four Comic-Con character posters for Mad Max: Fury Road, which stars Charlize Theron (Prometheus) as Imperator Furiosa. The rest of the cast includes Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: Days of Future Past), Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (Transformers: Dark of the Moon), Zoë Kravitz (Divergent) and Josh Helman (Jack Reacher). In addition, we’ve re-added the film’s first footage, which also debuted at the Con.

“Mad Max: Fury Road is the fourth film of George Miller‘s Road Warrior/Mad Max franchise co-written and directed by Miller. The post-apocalyptic action film is set in the furthest reaches of our planet, in a stark desert landscape where humanity is broken, and most everyone is crazed fighting for the necessities of life.

Within this world of fire and blood exist two rebels on the run who just might be able to restore order… There’s Max (Hardy), a man of action and a man of few words, who seeks peace of mind following the loss of his wife and child in the aftermath of the chaos.

And… Furiosa (Theron), a woman of action and a woman who believes her path to survival may be achieved if she can make it across the desert back to her childhood homeland.

Astounding ‘Deadpool’ Test Footage Makes Me Weep…

bloody disgusting - Mon, 07/28/2014 - 11:42

Ever since I picked up a copy of “New Mutants” issue #98 in 1991, I’ve been a huge fan of Deadpool, who is described by wiki as “a disfigured and mentally unstable mercenary”. Next to Wolverine, he’s just the coolest character around – not to mention his design has always been sleek and badass.

Well, today our friends at Latino-Review uncovered the most excellent never-before-seen test footage from the now defunct Deadpool feature film over at FOX.

The site explains:

In 2012 VFX artist and last director to be attached to a ‘Deadpool’ live-action film, Mr. Tim Miller shot some performance capture with Ryan Reynolds reprising his ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine’ character, Wade Wilson/Deadpool, but looking like he’s supposed to this time.

There is a script for an R-Rated version of this movie by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, the ‘Zombieland’ guys, that was and continues to be leaked after Fox put this movie in an infinite holding pattern.

This footage shows off the mood of that script and the character, gags and pacing in tact.

Seriously, this is some fantastic stuff, and easily the better comic character movie footage I’ve ever seen. I’d even go as far as to say this clip is better than 50% of the superhero movies out there. Tonally, when Deadpool shows off the decapitated head, that’s stuff dreams are mad of. And frankly, Deadpool and Wolverine deserve better. Come on FOX, what up. WAKE UP!

Knowing this will never become realized make me weep.

‘As God Says’ Trailer: Takahi Miike’s Reunion With Blood!!

bloody disgusting - Mon, 07/28/2014 - 11:07

On November 15 Japan will be the first to see Takashi Miike’s Battle Royale-esque bloodbath of an adaption, As God Says (Kamisama no lu Tori), which now has a brief teaser that shows some of the “participants.”

Based on a popular comic, which also sounds also similar to Cube, As God Says is about teenagers forced to play a deadly game by unknown forces.

Variety originally reported that Sota Fukushi will star as an ordinary teen whose world is suddenly turned upside down one day, as he and his classmates find themselves caught up in a game whose penalty is death.

Miike described the story of the new pic as “They live, some heads roll, they run, blood sprays, they cry, they laugh and then they die – in other words, a fun movie.

Written by Muneyuki Kanshiro and drawn by Akeji Fujimura, “As God Says” was serialized in Kodansha Comic Magazine from March 2011 to November 2012 and has sold 1.5 million copies in paperback editions.

bloody disgusting - Mon, 07/28/2014 - 10:49

James Buckley, pictured below, known for his role as Jay in the hugely successful British TV series “The Inbetweeners,” and Bruce Campbell, pictured above, known for his roles in many cult horror films including The Evil Dead, have both joined the cast of upcoming fantasy motion picture Welcome to Purgatory, Cupsogue Pictures tells Bloody Disgusting.

Buckley will play “Luke”, a petty thief who doesn’t have much luck, even in the Afterlife. Along with his partner-in-crime, Charlie (Stephen Marcus), they try to make the best of every bad situation in Purgatory, but with little success.

Campbell, who often works with Sam Raimi, Eli Roth and Welcome to Purgatory‘s own executive producer Scott Spiegel, is known for appearing in over 100 movies, many of which have become cult classics, making Campbell himself a cult icon after starring in such films as Army of Darkness, The Evil Dead, Spider-Man and Bubba Ho-Tep.

Welcome to Purgatory also stars Jillian Murray (Wild Things: Foursome, Bad Ass), Nathan Jones (Troy, Mad Max: Fury Road), Jack O’Halloran (Superman, King Kong), and Stephen Marcus (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Quills), and will be directed by British director Gene Fallaize.

“Welcome to Purgatory follows three new arrivals – Willis, Taylor and Danni – as they navigate this fresh vision of the Afterlife, helped along the way by Guardian Paul. The gates of Heaven & Hell have been broken and the Afterlife is in ruins. The new arrivals must find a way to put things right to prevent an eternal battle between good and evil.

Tony Cook and Gene Fallaize are producing the picture for Cupsogue Pictures, which was written by Marcus Ako & Tony Cook. Filming is due to commence on Welcome to Purgatory at Pinewood Studios, ahead of a theatrical release in 2015.

Will Bill Survive the Final Season of “True Blood”? (Trailer) #SDCC

bloody disgusting - Mon, 07/28/2014 - 10:32

HBO gave Comic-Con fans a look ahead at the final episodes of the concluding season of “True Blood”, which boats one major question: will Bill Compton survive in the end?

The trailer is about 30-seconds of story build and there rest is a montage of revealing footage.

In addition, those in attendance at the Con included exec producer Brian Buckner and co-stars Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer, Sam Trammell, Nelsan Ellis, Rutina Wesley, Kristin Bauer van Straten, Deborah Ann Woll, Carrie Preston, Chris Bauer, Anna Camp, and Nathan Parsons.

Here are some goodies out of the SDCC, reported by Debi Moore:

This season had to be about Bill and Sookie,” said Buckner. “It’s not going to be exactly what you think it is, but this show started out and worked because of the chemistry they shared… I certainly felt that we had to come back to Bill and Sookie; how we’re coming back to them, we’re not telling you.

As for what’s ahead in the upcoming episodes, he teased, “It’s not done changing. It’s not gonna slow down any; there’s just a bit more focus on romance… We put last season’s issue to rest early on purpose. We know you love these characters so we landed them in a place where we hope you guys will be okay not with getting them anymore.

It sounds like we’ll be more than okay with where Camp’s Sarah Newlin ends up. She told the crowd she has a big part to play in the final arc, adding, “I think I get what I deserve.” Buckner concurred, “I had to explain it to her boyfriend when he saw the punishment on set: ‘No, she deserves this!’” Yikes! Sounds like payback’s a bitch for Sarah!

For those who felt robbed of a chance to say goodbye to Tara, Buckner promised, “You haven’t seen the last of Rutina yet.

Trammell weighed in on Sam’s outcome, “Sam’s story has been about family for the past few years… [Nicole] has a very objective view of this town and how insane it is. We’ll see how committed I am to her and how committed she is to staying.

Lastly, Preston’s Arlene looks to finally be on track for some happiness as she embarks on a relationship with vampire Keith. “I don’t think you introduce a hot vampire on ‘True Blood’ without doing something with him… I feel like this season I got the real ‘True Blood’ experience, I got a vampire exploding in my crotch… [and] there’s something coming up with Arlene and Keith that’s unlike anything I’ve had to do on camera before.” Oh my!

bloody disgusting - Mon, 07/28/2014 - 10:25

We now have the trailer that premiered at the San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend, and it’s great because it sort of lends to the mystery of what the film is about.

The story is set in an underground cryogenic facility after a nuclear fallout renders the atmosphere unbreathable. Air centers on its two custodial workers (Reedus, Hounsou), who take care of the cryogenically sleeping personnel that are to re-establish society, but they struggle to preserve their own sanity and lives while maintaining the extremely fragile environment of the last livable place on earth.

Lionsgate's dropping the Dolph Lundgren and Scott Adkins starring monster-bash Legendary on DVD and VOD tomorrow and right now we have an exclusive clip from the DVD to get you all fired up.

HUGE bonus points awarded if either Adkins or Lundgren actually either kick or punch the creature.

Travis and his team travel to China in search of what isn’t supposed to exist... their mission is to capture a cryptid that is wreaking havoc in a remote village where a water pipeline is being built. They need to do this before Harker, the legendary bounty hunter, finds and kills it — and before anyone else falls victim to its rage.

‘Ghost’ Soundtrack Getting The Vinyl Reissue Treatment

bloody disgusting - Mon, 07/28/2014 - 09:00

While the supernatural romance film Ghost may not be a horror film, it still has some horror elements and some twisted scenes. After all, it’s about a ghost who basically haunts the sh*t out of his girlfriend (ex-girlfriend?) because he’s not willing to move on just yet. And remember the scene where Carl dies and is dragged into Hell? If not, head below because I’ve got that clip ready just for you.

However, another great aspect of the film is the score, which was composed by Maurice Jarre, whose credits include Eyes Without A Face and Jacob’s Ladder. And now that score will be coming out September 15th on a vinyl reissue, courtesy of Milan Records.

You can pre-order a copy through New On Vinyl and through other online retailers.

‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay’ Trailer Brings On the Rebellion!

[TV Review] “The Strain” Episode 1.03, ‘Gone Smooth’

bloody disgusting - Sun, 07/27/2014 - 23:45

“Gone Smooth” has one of the best cold opens I’ve ever witnessed. We’re given the intimate details of how Herr Eichorst puts himself together accompanied by a piece of classical music that makes everything feel elegant. The old Nazi bastard needs a lot of work and the cinematography lingers on closeups and uses a soft focus until it reveals its full hand in a horrifying fashion.

The CDC is now an interested observer in the whole affair. The military has taken the surviving passengers and Jim begins to lose his shit. Sean Astin gives his best performance yet, but he’s still a patsy who’s getting pushed around in almost every scene.

This episode belongs to the survivors from the plane. Who we watch as the virus starts to take greater hold on their bodies. The physical transformation is happening at an alarming rate, and thanks to the cold open we know what to expect, but the transition isn’t pleasant.

The pest control services desk is bombarded with calls. Vasily gets a weeks worth of extermination requests in one day but despite having a list of places to go, he’s got to see some asshole stock broker who comes first. The story again serves to show why Vasily will be the best man on the ground as this outbreak really kicks into high gear, but moreover it shows that he’s the only one close to actually figuring out what’s going on.

The CDC only spend a few moments wondering why an entire morgue of bodies disappear before going back to see their favorite airline pilot. He’s got those nasty worms in him, and Captain Redford isn’t going to make it. Ephraim gives him false hope, showing that he’s either compassionate or an asshole.

Jim’s whole struggle feels way too convenient to be believable. His struggle is a classic storytelling device to show a man torn between his good nature and deceiving his work to help the woman he loves most. I just don’t buy it and it feels forced. Hopefully he gets a swift and painful death.

Abraham Setrakian gets a little more screen time this week and we watch as he plays a feeble minded man who is capable of so much more. David Bradley gives a great performance with his bold confidence and foreboding nature. He’s just too busy selling doom to those who won’t listen. He sounds slightly insane but we know he’s the only one who’s actually got the hang on what’s going on.

I wish I could care about Eph’s family troubles but we don’t know enough about his relationships other than the fact their broken. Child actors are such a horrible plight in television, they never feel like real characters and every line of dialogue feels melodramatic which isn’t helped by the somber music in the background. All the dialogue here is groan worthy and it’s the worst part of the show so far.

Right about the halfway point this week is where I can pinpoint a distinct change in tone for the show. Eph’s family struggle is behind him. Abraham is done sowing doom, and the survivors really start to fall apart. Everyone starts poking a little too much and the true nature of virus starts to rear its ugly head. It’s not particularly terrifying just yet, but builds to an incredible last ten minutes as everything converges into a point of no return.

The coverup of the airline is cemented. The survivors transformations are grisly, and dizzying. Which leads into a final scene where Jim stupidly approaches a full blown vampire Captain Redford. It leads to a great demonstration of the Vampire’s physiology and power in the series that people have been waiting for and gives way to a perfect final shot that gives us the most terrifying visual of the series thus far: Corey Stoll’s insanely tussled hair piece.

Stray Thoughts:

-       The dick falling off – gah, really got to me. Every man’s worst nightmare.

-       Wanted the little girl vampire to jump out, but the scene in her house was good enough.

-       Vasily is still the best story here by far.

-       I still hate Nora. Is it possible her acting got even more wooden this week?

What did you think of “Gone Smooth?”

#SDCC14: See the Full Grimm Comic-Con Panel and Monrosalee Wedding Wishes Clip!

Dread Central - Sun, 07/27/2014 - 21:16

Lucky for us (and you!) just as we were starting to recap yesterday's SDCC "Grimm" panel, NBC put the whole thing up online, including the Monroe/Rosalee wedding tribute video that premiered at the show and word that in Season 4 we'll see a chupacabra Wesen!

There are quite a few scoops on the upcoming fourth season, and here are some highlights. The eternal question of whether or not Wu will finally be admitted into the inner circle, however, remained unanswered yet again.

Series co-creator Jim Kouf said regarding where "Grimm" is heading this year: “We keep writing ourselves into corners, and then we have to figure out how to get out of them.”

One of those corners is the fate of Renard, and Sasha Roiz said of the Captain's apparent demise: “I think we’re gonna try to find some sort of interesting way to bring him back to life.” We'll also meet his Hexenbiest mother for the first time.

And what of Nick's lost powers? Star David Giuntoli called Portland's other resident Grimm, Trubel, his "seeing-eye Grimm, which is nice," adding, "I would hope I get the powers back on some level.”

Kouf's partner, co-creator David Greenwalt, says of Adalind's missing offspring: "There will be some baby seen, that's for sure."

One of the show's biggest mysteries, those bloody keys, will continue for a little while longer. Greenwalt teases, "There'll be another key this year, and in year 5 for sure, we will answer what those damn seven keys mean and what they lead to."

"Grimm" Season 5 premieres Friday, October 24th, 9/8c on NBC.

For more info visit "Grimm" on, check out some InstaGRIMMS on Instagram, "like" "Grimm" on Facebook, and follow "Grimm" on Twitter.

#SDCC14: Supernatural Panel Highlights Include Demon Dean Details and Lots More!

Dread Central - Sun, 07/27/2014 - 19:22

While a freak thunderstorm blew through San Diego (Chuck? God? Was that you?), "Supernatural" fans were treated to another rousing SDCC panel thanks to stars Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, Misha Collins, and Mark Sheppard and showrunner Jeremy Carver.

First Jensen took the stage with a clip from Episode 10.03, which he directed, showing the first time the Winchesters are reunited after Dean is turned into a demon. Look for that to hit online soon; we'll update the story once it does.

Ackles explained how we can know Dean really is a monster: Demon Dean (DD) doesn't care about the Impala as much as real Dean. He continued, "[It] is actually Dean's soul that is twisted. It was interesting trying to make it a different character but, at the same time, be the same character — but twisted and demonic."

Meanwhile, "Sam digs into how to rescue his brother," Carver said. The theme of the season is "the idea of these brothers questioning who the real monster is... it's great and it's exciting and emotional and fun."

Padalecki is happy to see his compadre tackle DD: "I've played all freakin' sorts of Sams so it's a real joy to get to see Ackles flex those same type of muscles."

Collins brought the crowd up-to-speed on what's up with Castiel when we return in the fall: "Early on in the season the most important thing for Castiel is trying to help get Dean patched up. He's more concerned about that than recovering his own powers."

And Crowley? Newly anointed series regular Sheppard said of whether or not Crowley has control over DD, that's something he would like to explore over the "three or four seasons to come."

Carver described the upcoming 200th episode of "Supernatural" as "musical-ish. Beyond the songs, it's very much what we consider to be a love letter to the fans." We can also expect the season premiere to have a heavy dose of music with singing and "rump-shaking." Ackles teased, "Apparently Demon Dean likes to karaoke, or does he?"

Padalecki thanked the fans, some of the most loyal you'll find anywhere, for their support over the past 10 seasons. "We would not exist if it weren't for you so thank y'all very much," he said. He also got everyone's hopes up when a fan asked about the possible return of Kevin. "You're more likely to come back on 'Supernatural' if you die than if you survive," he exclaimed.

Shortly after that, Kevin Tran himself (Osric Chau) stepped up to the mic, whipping off a disguise and posing the question: "So, when does Kevin come back?" Carver was noncommittal, but Jensen vowed, "We'll never forget!"

With Castiel's trenchcoat wardrobe being inspired by DC's John Constantine, what does Misha think about the character now getting his own series on NBC? Collins threw down the gauntlet: "Granted, we did plagiarize the look from the [comic book] Constantine, but I figure we've got squatter's rights now - it's our wardrobe!"

A sore subject with "Supernatural" fans is always the depiction of women on the show. Any new female regulars on the horizon? "You can expect a very healthy dose of very strong, very powerful female characters - new and returning - this season," Carver promised.

As usual things wrapped up with a look at the gag reel from the Season 9 Blu-ray/DVD set, and with that, we were done!

The "Supernatural" Season 10 premiere airs on Tuesday, October 7th, at 9 PM on The CW.

#SDCC14: BioWare Brings You a Nightmare Trailer

Dread Central - Sun, 07/27/2014 - 19:12

You’re running... running down a debris-laden alleyway. You reach your car while in a world of panic and pull at the handle, only to see yourself in the driver’s seat, staring back at you in cold deadpan. And oh yeah, a guy with smoke for a head.

Hit the sink and splash some cold water on your face. You’re having a nightmare, at least watching one, in the form of a teaser trailer released at Comic-Con for BioWare’s mysterious new IP.

The trailer is titled Shadow Realms and suggests the developer of the Dragon Age and Mass Effect series is moving in a new, very horrific direction. The trailer ends by asking, “What really happens when we sleep?,” suggesting the game will have the feel of playing through a nightmare. Anyone who has woken up panting in a drenched cold sweat after going toe-to-toe with Freddy Krueger will tell you the possibilities of this realm are limitless.

This game could possibly be the new title BioWare briefly mentioned at this years E3, of which Bioware’s executive producer, Casey Hudson, told IGN: “…we want to build a world that is as big and as imaginative as anything we’ve ever done,” suggesting this won’t be some simple dream but a full-on nightmare world.

The video came courtesy of the game’s new teaser site You’ve Been Chosen.

#SDCC14: Telltale Games Announces The Walking Dead Season 3

Dread Central - Sun, 07/27/2014 - 18:54

Horror truly has a home at Comic-Con, especially the zombie-filled killing machine that is The Walking Dead. Just a short day after the teaser trailer for Season 5 of the TV show was unleashed on the unholy horde of cosplayers at San Diego Comic-Con...

...Telltale Games has confirmed the third season of their The Walking Dead video game series.

The previous titles in the series have been released as downloadable games for last-gen consoles. No word has been given if gamers who have upgraded to the more current hardware will finally have a chance to explore the world of The Walking Dead.

Not even a release window was given for the next season, and Telltale is still busy working on Tales from the Borderlands and Game of Thrones games, both slated for 2014 releases. Pundits believe the game won’t be out until 2015.

Telltale Games recently released Episode 5 of Season 2 of The Walking Dead and concluded their series The Wolf Among Us, based on the Fables comic books, to a very warm reception.
