[Interview] Garth Ennis Reveals The Origin Of The 'Crossed' Virus

bloody disgusting - Tue, 03/25/2014 - 13:46

This week marks the monumental 50th issue of “Crossed: Badlands” and the return of return of original writer/creator Garth Ennis to his demented world. To mark the occasion, Ennis is going back to where it all began to show how the “Crossed” virus was originally unleashed in the new story-arc “The Thin Red Line”.

Garth stepped into the line of fire to answer some questions from Bloody-Disgusting about the 50th issue, the story-arcs that stand out to him, and his long term plans for “Crossed” moving forward into 2015.

Bloody-Disgusting: Issue #50 is a landmark in today’s comic industry that very few titles make it to. What does the anniversary mean to you?

Garth Ennis: It’s that bit simpler for Crossed, remember, because we’d already established an audience before we set to work on the ongoing book. There was less of that sense of crossing your fingers and blindly trusting to luck, which I think has doomed far too many potentially interesting projects- Vertigo and Image in particular have launched dozens upon dozens of series without considering whether they might make better one-off graphic novels or miniseries. They don’t test the water first, and effectively consign the stories to oblivion- making writers, artists and readers alike the losers. Having multiple writers and a bi-weekly schedule makes reaching #50 that bit easier, of course.

BD: Looking back over the past issues of Crossed, are there any story-arcs that stand out to you as being a benchmark for the book?

GE: I’ve said this before, but I think Si Spurrier’s “Wish You Were Here” webcomic has fulfilled the potential of Crossed better than any other story. I like some Badlands arcs better than others, but they certainly make it easier for me to pop in now and again and do the stories I want to do without committing to an ongoing schedule. I’d probably single out the recent five-parter by Christos Gage and Christian Zanier as being the most ambitious.

BD: Do you have a trajectory plan for the next 50 issues? How long do you envision Crossed lasting?

GE: The individual arcs that make up Badlands are more William Christensen’s department, in terms of their creative teams and order in which they appear- I said from the start that I didn’t want to take on a particularly heavy editorial role. I’ve already finished my Crossed story for 2015, an eleven-part story called ‘Once A Warrior King’, which effectively finishes the trilogy made up by ‘The Fatal Englishman’ and this year’s ‘The Thin Red Line’. It’ll probably appear a little later in the year than March, and if all goes well it should lead into something very interesting indeed for when we hit the #100 mark. After that it’s hard to say. You may well see Crossed moving from comics into other media. Time will tell.

'Edge of Tomorrow' Trailer Makes Me Wanna Play "Titanfall"

bloody disgusting - Tue, 03/25/2014 - 13:45

If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. Even if it means doing it for an eternity and making the above face…

Village Roadshow and Warner Bros. Pictures released this ass-kicking new trailer for Edge of Tomorrow, which for whatever reason makes me want to go play “Titanfall”.

The new trailer really pushes the relationship and story arc between both Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt’s characters. The pic “unfolds in a near future in which an alien race has hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, unbeatable by any military unit in the world.

Major William Cage (Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously dropped into what amounts to a suicide mission. Killed within minutes, Cage now finds himself inexplicably thrown into a time loop—forcing him to live out the same brutal combat over and over, fighting and dying again…and again.

But with each battle, Cage becomes able to engage the adversaries with increasing skill, alongside Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski (Blunt). And, as Cage and Rita take the fight to the aliens, each repeated encounter gets them one step closer to defeating the enemy.

The international cast also includes Bill Paxton (Aliens, HBO’s “Big Love), Brendan Gleeson (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1), Noah Taylor (Lawless), Kick Gurry (Australian TV’s “Tangle), Dragomir Mrsic (Snabba Cash II), Charlotte Riley (World Without End), Jonas Armstrong (BBC TV’s “Robin Hood), Franz Drameh (Attack the Block), Masayoshi Haneda (Emperor) and Tony Way (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo).

Liman is directing Edge of Tomorrow from a screenplay by Christopher McQuarrie and Jez Butterworth & John-Henry Butterworth, based on the novel entitled All You Need is Kill by Hiroshi Sakurazaka.

With Project Morpheus "You Can Make The Ultimate Horror Game"

bloody disgusting - Tue, 03/25/2014 - 13:00

That headline is a quote from Neil Druckmann, director and writer at Naughty Dog, the developer that brought us the critically acclaimed PS3 exclusive, The Last of Us. If you missed its big reveal, Project Morpheus is the code-name for Sony’s answer to the Oculus Rift. It’s a powerful virtual reality headset that was revealed last week at GDC in San Francisco.

While brainstorming potential uses for the newly revealed tech, Druckman decided it could be used to “make the ultimate horror game.” I think he may be on to something.

Spent downtime at the airport brainstorming #ProjectMorpheus ideas with @bruce_straley. Conclusion, you can make the ultimate horror game.

— Neil Druckmann (@Neil_Druckmann) March 20, 2014

Project Morpheus — or whatever the retail product ends up being called — is still a ways off. However, the Oculus Rift is slated to arrive as early as this fall. The technology is positioned to benefit us in many more ways than more immersive gaming, but as fans of a genre where immersion is a key factor in its efficacy, this tech will be hugely beneficial to the horror genre.

In fact, it’s already happening.

Try To Scare The Pants Off Your Friends In 'Spectre'

bloody disgusting - Tue, 03/25/2014 - 12:00

Remember when half-baked multiplayer modes were tacked on to great horror games in a ridiculous effort to sell more copies of the game? Condemned 2, Dead Space 2, Resident Evil 5 — the list is long and more than a little frustrating. Now a few creative indie developers are finding clever ways to weave multiplayer into their horror games with a purpose.

Spectre is one of those games, and after seeing it in action, it has my full attention. More after the jump.

Spectre reminds me a lot of the similarly themed indie horror game Damned, in that both games aim to make competitive multiplayer the main feature, rather than an afterthought.

According to its Kickstarter, Spectre brings asynchronous multiplayer challenges to virtual reality and allows players to assume the role of either the seekers or the Spectre. Up to four players explore perilous environments and together feel the terror of the being hunted. As a Seeker, your headlight is your weapon and your salvation in darkness. Your headlight is capable of emitting limited bursts of bright light which can incapacitate pursuing Spectres. As a Spectre, your goal is to pursue and drain the life from the Seekers. Spectres can lay traps, create illusions, make distant sounds, disorient Seekers, and transport themselves.”

The game is also being built with the Oculus Rift and Virtuix Omni in mind.

If scaring your friends (or assorted strangers) sounds like your idea of a good time, you can support Spectre on Kickstarter, where it’s crowd-funding campaign is just under $4,000 shy of its modest $15,000 goal, and you can also follow it on Steam Greenlight.

[BD Review] 'Wolf Creek 2' Insanely Fun, Yet Grimy and Vicious!!

bloody disgusting - Tue, 03/25/2014 - 11:20

Back in 2005, when Greg McLean delivered is Aussie slasher Wolf Creek to the Sundance Film Festival, horror fans were clamoring for ultra-violent cinema. With films like Jeepers Creepers, Wrong Turn, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Cabin Fever, Freddy vs. Jason, Saw and Hostel reeking havoc on box office competitors, it was clear that “hardcore” was what the people wanted. That didn’t last long as Hollywood turned to J-horror reboots, remakes, and then found-footage subgenres – all of which have since died. What is it that people want from horror these days? Well, it’s unclear as we’re in a transition stage, but what I can tell you is that anything fun is going to work with audiences. Nearly a decade since its festival premiere, McLean has returned to the Outback with slasher Mick Taylor (John Jarratt) and his hunting tools, this time taking genre fans on a blast of a blood-soaked ride that’s so incredibly fun that it taps into the spirit of the later A Nightmare on Elm Street sequels.

Wolf Creek felt like a torture film, sort of in the vein of the original Texas Chain Saw Massacre. The sequel approaches the subgenre from a completely different direction, this time by moving the pace and delivering hilarious set pieces that will have the audience cheering (I was in tears laughing when Mick Taylor mows over a troop of kangaroo with a truck).

And speaking of Mick Taylor, McLean makes the bold choice to turn him into the film’s protagonist/anti-hero. The sequel isn’t actually told from the perspective of new backpackers, but instead from the psycho eyes of the Outback slasher. This is what brings the Elm Street qualities out, and injects Wolf Creek 2 with an insane amount of joy. While it’s still brutal as hell (Taylor cuts off the penis of one of his prey), this time McLean lets the audience enjoy themselves instead of feeling like they were punched in the gut.

What also propels the film to greatness is that John Jarratt delivers one of the best slasher performance in history, turning Mick Taylor into a maniacal, hilarious, and still terrifying mass murderer.

Wolf Creek 2 is the slasher horror fans have been dying for; it’s like Crocodile Dundee, High Tension, Texas Chain Saw and Elm Street all mixed into one insanely fun, yet dirty, grimy and vicious slasher massacre. Wear a raincoat because you will get wet…

It's Up to Lionsgate to Make 'Blair Witch' Sequel...

bloody disgusting - Tue, 03/25/2014 - 11:19

Eduardo Sánchez and Daniel Myrick’s 1999 indie The Blair Witch Project was a game changer. It’s sequel, while disappointing at the time of release, has aged like fine wine.

While the groundbreaking first film was the first found-footage of its kind, the 2000 Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 went back to a traditional approach.

The duo have been talking trilogy since the release of Book of Shadows, although nothing has ever come into fruition.

With the recent popularity of found-footage, it’s sort of a shocker that a third film has never gone into production.

Lionsgate, who owns the rights to the franchise (through acquiring Artisan Entertainment), recently acquired Sanchez’ Exists out of the SXSW Film Festival. Reuniting Sanchez with Lionsgate provides hope that this franchise will live on, although it’s up to Lionsgate to pull the trigger.

You know, Lionsgate owns the property, so it’s obviously up to them right now,” Sanchez tells Movies.com. “We’ve been talking to them for the past four or five years about doing it, but there’s nothing really in the works right now with us. But I think you’re right and maybe just being back at Lionsgate will help move things forward on another Blair Witch movie.

Responding to talk about it being found-footage, Sanchez ends that notion: “That’s an observation I’ve talked to a lot of people about. There were other found-footage movies, but when Cloverfield did its thing there were a whole bunch of them afterward. I think a lot of people, including us, just didn’t know. We never imagined doing another Blair Witch found-footage movie. Our plan for the sequel is definitely not doing a found-footage movie. It took a while for people to just figure out what Blair had done; I’m not sure why. The film was so experimental and kind of came out of nowhere so people didn’t know what to think of it and weren’t sure if that style could be repeated.

The Blair Witch Project went on to make $250M worldwide at the box office.

'Batman: Arkham Knight' Composer Talks The Music Of A Dark Hero

bloody disgusting - Tue, 03/25/2014 - 11:00

Game Informer has posted an interview with composer Nick Arundel about the upcoming Batman: Arkham Knight video game, which will be coming out later this year. Arundel discusses the music of the previous games and how they influence new motifs as well as working with composer David Buckley (Blood Creek, The Number 23). You can watch the interview below.

Batman: Arkham Knight is the fourth game in the Batman: Arkham series, which began in 2009 with Batman: Arkham Asylum. Arkham Knight has a tentative release date of October 14, 2014 and will be available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

I played the hell out of Asylum and City but didn’t get into Origins at all. Still, those two were enough to convince me that they are easily two of the greatest comic book games ever created. Were I to own a current gen console, I’d be all over this game!

[T] Next On: "Bates Motel" Episode 2.05, "The Escape Artist"

bloody disgusting - Tue, 03/25/2014 - 08:43

After a slow start, last week’s “Bates Motel” ended with such a massive shocker that it altered the history of Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho.

While I haven’t had a chance to catch last night’s episode, A&E has dragged me back in as I expect more surprises.

Here’s a look at next week’s Episode 2.05, “The Escape Artist,” airing March 31.

Norman (Freddie Highmore) trusts Cody (Paloma Kwiatkowski) with a family secret. Dylan (Max Thieriot) finds himself fighting for his life as Zane’s (Michael Eklund) war escalates. Meanwhile, Norma (Vera Farmiga) makes a deal with a mysterious man (Michael O’Neill) to help stop the bypass.

H.R. Giger Behind-The-Scenes Working On 'Alien' (Random Cool)

bloody disgusting - Tue, 03/25/2014 - 03:00

I’ve always been a fan of 1979′s Alien, the Ridley Scott-directed film that introduced the world to the terrifying yet strangely beautiful xenomorph. It’s a fantastic film that horrifies with layer after layer of thick, claustrophobic atmosphere, compounded by a wonderful score (courtesy of Jerry Goldsmith).

But none of that would’ve been possible without the art direction and creature design of artist H.R. Giger, whose vision crafted a villain that still terrifies and entrances audiences.

Below you can see the man himself on the set of the film as he works on some of the most iconic moments and props.

Dread Central - Mon, 03/24/2014 - 19:50

Talk about "uneasy"! Brothers Elijah and Klaus come close to blows in this clip from "The Originals" Episode 1.18, entitled "The Big Uneasy." Check it out, and let your anticipation grow for the show's April 15th return.

Along with the clip and the ep's official synopsis, we also have a look at the new trailer that aired during the show's March 22nd panel at PaleyFest 2014.

Monique (guest star Yasmine Al Bustami) and Genevieve disagree over what the ancestors want from them, and Genevieve reveals her plan to build the witches' power.

When Elijah focuses his attention on restoring their home to its former glory, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) accuses him of doing it only to impress Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin).

Marcel lets Thierry (guest star Callard Harris) in on his new plan to rebuild his power, but Diego (guest star Eka Darville) has his own ideas about the future. At the Feast of the Blessings, Monique and Genevieve try to use the ceremony to teach Davina (Danielle Campbell) a lesson, but Klaus intervenes and gives Davina a surprisingly important gift.

While Hayley struggles to decide where her loyalties should lie, the ceremony explodes into violence. Leah Pipes also stars.

Michael Green Hired to Rewrite the Prometheus Sequel

Dread Central - Mon, 03/24/2014 - 19:23

It was late October when we last heard anything about the Prometheus sequel, but today word has come that a (re)writer has been found to polish the script along with a few other details about what we might be seeing in it.

Per The Wrap, after working with Ridley Scott on a new Blade Runner movie, Michael Green ("Smallville," "Heroes," Green Lantern) has been hired to rewrite Prometheus 2 for 20th Century Fox. Jack Paglen (Transcendence) wrote the original draft of the screenplay.

In addition, multiple sources told the site that the “Untitled Ridley Scott Project” 20th Century Fox announced it will release in March of 2016 is Prometheus 2 (unofficial title). Production could start as early as this fall, and the sequel will apparently be much more “Alien-y” and in line with the terrifying tone of past films in the franchise.

Additionally, the sequel is expected to feature multiple "David" androids (portrayed by Michael Fassbender).

Scott will produce again through his Scott Free banner though it’s unknown at this time if he will direct. Original star Noomi Rapace is also expected to return.

The IBT discovered some Jurassic World concept art hiding within the online portfolio of Nathan Schroeder, an artist whose recent work includes Avengers Assemble, Star Trek and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

Below you’ll see some images of a fully-operational dinosaur theme park, which will be operated by director Colin Trevorrow.

Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas-Howard will star, alongside Jake Johnson, Omar Sy, Ty Simpkins and BD Wong, who returns as Dr. Henry Wu, a scientist from the first film, adds the site. Trevorrow also put the kibosh on the Idris Elba rumor, joking that “The dinosaurs wouldn’t stand a chance.“
