From the Press Release:
Legendary Pictures, Atlas Entertainment, Blizzard Entertainment, and distribution partner Universal Pictures held a panel at BlizzCon today for Warcraft fans in support of the feature film that will appear in theaters on March 11, 2016. The panel marks Warcraft director Duncan Jones’ second appearance at the show, honoring his promise to “show a lot more next year” at BlizzCon 2013. Legendary held its first movie panel at BlizzCon in 2007, when producers Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni discussed the initial plans for bringing Blizzard’s world to the big screen, and today’s panel continues that tradition of giving the dedicated Warcraft fans first access to information and images related to the film.

Panelists included Duncan Jones, the director behind the award-winning sci-fi film Moon (2009) and Source Code (2011); Chris Metzen, Senior Vice President of Story and Franchise Development for Blizzard Entertainment, Bill Westenhofer, the BAFTA and Academy Award®-winning VFX supervisor behind films such as The Life of Pi, and actor Rob Kazinsky (Pacific Rim, “True Blood”), whose character Orgrim was revealed today along with the names of the other characters that each member of the film’s principal cast will play.

Twisted Music Video Of The Week Vol. 160: Primus “Mr. Krinkle”

bloody disgusting - Fri, 11/07/2014 - 18:30

Primus. What a weird fucking band. Absolutely insane music that shouldn’t work and yet it does. I don’t know why I love this band but goddammit I do.

Because I don’t get to talk about them nearly enough on BD, I wanted to feature their music video for “Mr. Krinkle”, which comes from their 1993 album Pork Soda. The video is a one-take shot and shows Les Claypool dressed as a pig in a business suit playing a standup bass. In the background are tons of different entertainers, from slave drivers to girls jumping rope, fire breathers to contortionists. It’s just a crazy video that makes little to no sense and yet, as a result, is absolutely perfect for Primus.

Enjoy it below and have an awesome weekend!

Check This Band Out: Elizabeth Motzell

bloody disgusting - Fri, 11/07/2014 - 16:44

Sometimes when you listen to music you realize that what you’re hearing moves beyond the simple definition of “music” and transcends into “art”. Now, art is a bit subjective but I feel very comfortable applying that label to the music of Elizabeth Motzell, whose album Evidence And is a haunting mix of eerie music and spoken poetry.

The combination results in something that is far more cerebral than everyday background music. It demands your full attention, asking you to think and devote a little bit of time to introspection.

“A Tour of Hanwell” Chronicles the 5-Year Making of ‘Asylum’

bloody disgusting - Fri, 11/07/2014 - 15:16

The horror adventure game Asylum has been in development for half a decade now. It’d be about a year short of qualifying as vaporware if developer Senscape didn’t offer the occasional reminder that it’s still very much alive and on track to release when it’s damn good and ready. So far, each update has offered a painfully glimpse look at the upcoming game, but that changes today thanks to a substantial update on its Kickstarter.

For starters, they’ve announced they’re making a documentary called “A Tour of Hanwell” that will chronicle the horror game’s longer-than-usual development time. The film will cover some of the things we’ve come to expect from “making of” films, including a look at early concept art and some behind the scenes footage. It will even follow the team as they visit a real asylum.

You know, for research.

The developer also offered some details on the official Asylum art book, which they’ve crammed full of “concept artwork, storyboards, early renders of locations, outtakes, the story and blueprints of Hanwell, trivia, the register of inmates including many [backer] names” and dubbed it the Record Book of the Insane Department.

Oh, and if you’re a backer who donated $100 or more to its Kickstarter campaign, Senscape is working on a VIP exclusive demo they hope to have ready later this month.

Senscape also offered a glimpse of the redesigned interface.

New Footage Explores the Eerie, Sci-fi World of ‘Stasis’

bloody disgusting - Fri, 11/07/2014 - 14:31

Despite my getting into video games at an early age, back when the point-and-click genre was at its most popular, I’ve never been able to discover a hidden enthusiasm I might possess deep within me for the beloved genre. Granted, this is almost entirely due to a lack of trying on my part, as I have limited free time now and there are so many games I’d like to play. If ever there was a game that could finally draw me in, it’d be the sci-fi horror game Stasis.

There’s a lot to love about the bleak world developer Chris Bischoff has created for Stasis, from its impressive graphical fidelity to the smartly crafted scares, which are made more effective by its atmospheric environments and a haunting soundtrack from Fallout composer Mark Morgan.

It may borrow some ideas from Dead Space, mostly in regards to its art style and setting, but what it takes as inspiration is woven into the game world until it feels familiar, but not necessarily borrowed.

I’ve spent some time with its demo, which you can download free of charge over here. Otherwise, you can see my first impressions of this promising horror game in the video below.

We still don’t know when Stasis will release, but when it does it’ll come to PC.

Idol Of Fear “Morningstar” Song Premiere (Exclusive)

bloody disgusting - Fri, 11/07/2014 - 14:00

Bloody-Disgusting has teamed up with Barrie, ON black metal band Idol Of Fear to bring you the exclusive track premiere of “Morningstar”, which comes from their upcoming album All Sights Affixed, Ablaze (out November 18th).

Vocalist/guitarist Austin Myers describes the song:

“Morningstar” was inspired by and is in tribute to the allure of dark art, and the path taken by individuals who choose to explore its depths.

The track reminds me of a mix of Behemoth and Opeth, which is a very high compliment. I’m really enjoying the layering and texture of the song as well as its dynamics. To paraphrase Special Agent Dale Cooper, this is a some damn fine metal.

Head on down to check out the track and make sure to pre-order the album via Bandcamp.

Here’s Hitler Riding a Dinosaur!

bloody disgusting - Fri, 11/07/2014 - 13:14

The Iron Sky franchise has gone from stupid to stupid good in just 1-second flat.

Running yet another crowd funding effort through IndieGoGo, this teaser for Iron Sky: The Coming Race has sold me in a single shot – Adolf Hitler riding a dinosaur.

Check out this nearly 4-minute long teaser that’s about as good as any well-made short out there. The scope looks massive and I love that it begins in “the real world,” adding to the film’s potential realism.

Also, I’m a huge conspiracy fan, so the fact that Iron Sky follows insane Nazi conspiracy theories only makes me even more intrigued (the sequel takes place 20 years after WWII and enters “Hollow Earth.”)

I want this NOW.

‘Summer Camp’ is the Latest Stab at Making a Teen Slasher Horror Game

bloody disgusting - Fri, 11/07/2014 - 12:51

Because horror is a juggernaut that cannot be stopped, Breach & Clear: DEADline developer Gun has revealed a new horror game inspired by teen slasher films. Slasher Vol. 1: Summer Camp is basically Friday the 13th: The Game, as it follows a gaggle of horny teen counselors who find themselves being hunted by some woods-dwelling psychopath — played by you.

If you have the nagging feeling you’ve heard of this game before, you’re probably thinking about Splatter Camp, the other teen murder simulator from Babysitter Bloodbath (formerly Halloween) developer Pig Farmer Games.

This isn’t Splatter Camp, this is Summer Camp. Get to know it in the trailer below.

Shout Factory! Scores Takashi Miike’s ‘Over Your Dead Body’

bloody disgusting - Fri, 11/07/2014 - 11:30

Scream Factory! has acquired U.S. rights to Takashi Miike’s latest chiller, Over Your Dead Body, which screened at this past September’s TIFF. Watch for it to release in 2015.

A star, Miyuki Goto (Ko Shibasaki) plays Oiwa, the protagonist in a new play based on the ghost story Yotsuya Kaidan. She pulls some strings to get her lover, Kosuke Hasegawa (Ebizo Ichikawa) cast in the play, even though he’s a relatively unknown actor. Other performers Rio Asahina (Miho Nakanishi) and Jun Suzuki (Hideaki Ito) lust after Miyuki. Off stage the cast’s possessive love and obsessions exist as reality. Trapped between the play and reality, the cast’s feelings for each other are amplified. When it becomes clear that love is not meant to be both on and off stage, love turns into a grudge and crosses the blurred line between reality and fantasy.

Ebizo Ichikawa, Ko Shibasaki, Hideaki Ito, Miho Nakanishi, Maiko, Toshie Negishi, Hiroshi Katsuno and Ikko Furuya star.
