New Trailer Coming for Edge of Tomorrow; See the Teaser Now!

Mon, 03/24/2014 - 15:17

We've been talking about Doug Liman's Edge of Tomorrow for quite some time although we haven't heard much about it lately. That all changes tomorrow, March 25th, with the release of a new trailer, and right now you can watch a teaser of what's coming.

The Warner Bros. Pictures/Village Roadshow Pictures sci-fi thriller is directed by Doug Liman and stars Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt, Bill Paxton, Jeremy Piven, Jonas Armstrong, Tony Way, Kick Gurry, Franz Drameh, Dragomir Mrsic, Charlotte Riley, and Marianne Jean-Baptiste.

The screenplay was written by Dante Harper, Christopher McQuarrie, and Joby Harold.

Check back tomorrow for the full trailer, and look for the film in theatres on June 6, 2014.

Synopsis
The epic action of Edge of Tomorrow 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. Lt. Col. Bill Cage (Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously dropped into what amounts to little more than 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 (Emily Blunt). And, as Cage and Rita take the fight to the aliens, each repeated encounter gets them one step closer to defeating the enemy.

Latest L.A. Slasher Poster Has its Way with a Hollywood Icon

Mon, 03/24/2014 - 15:00

On tap right now is a brand spanking new one-sheet for the upcoming flick L.A. Slasher that proves that after blondes have more fun, they usually end up tied to a chair and gutted. Such is life in the City of Angels.

From the Press Release
The buzzed about feature film L.A. Slasher, directed by Martin Owen and produced by Jeffrey Wright and Daniel Sollinger (Girls Against Boys, The Alphabet Killer), has recently completed post-production and is currently available for distribution. 

L.A. Slasher sports an eclectic cast: Danny Trejo (Machete), Mischa Barton (“The O.C.”), Dave Bautista (WWE superstar, Riddick), Eric Roberts (The Dark Knight), Drake Bell (“Drake & Josh”), Brooke Hogan (“Hogan Knows Best”), Tori Black (Not Another Celebrity Movie), and the voice of Andy Dick (“NewsRadio”).

Incensed by the tabloid culture which celebrates it, the L.A. Slasher publicly abducts a series of reality TV stars, while the media and general public in turn begin to question if society is better off without them. It is a biting, social satire about reality TV and the glorification of people who are famous for simply being famous. L.A. Slasher explores why it has become acceptable and even admirable for people to become influential and wealthy based on no merit or talent - purely through notoriety achieved through shameful behavior. 

Says producer Wright, “We are very optimistic about the commercial success of L.A. Slasher, given the explosion of Twitter and Facebook followers on our social media platforms. It's pretty amazing." 

Sollinger adds, “The L.A. Slasher is a character that everyone can relate to. He is angry and frustrated with the often toxic role celebrity plays in our society.”

Added writer and director Owen, “We are putting a funhouse mirror up to fame. The movie is vibrant and exciting, and I know whoever sees it will be changed.”

Using a meta casting angle which taps into pop culture zeitgeist, Mischa Barton plays a washed-up Actress, while Eric Roberts’ character is a Mayor who deals with a substance abuse problem. Porn star Tori Black is a Teen Mom who is the victim of “accidentally” released sex tapes, while teen crooner Drake Bell plays a teen Pop Star who spits in the face of his fans.

Riffing on familiar television/film tropes, Brooke Hogan also appears as a Reality TV Star along with a Socialite (portrayed by Korrina Rico), an Heiress (Elizabeth Morris), and real life scream queens Ashlynn Yennie (The Human Centipede), Barbara Nedeljakova (Hostel), Allison Kyler (Laid to Rest), and Carlee Baker (The Woman) portraying themselves. Actress Marisa Lauren appears as a Stripper with ambitions of fame, and Abigail Wright plays a Reporter trying to make sense of it all.

While we await distribution news on the film, we have found an L.A. Slasher social presence on Twitter (@LA_Slasher) and on Facebook.

Rest in Peace Dave Brockie / Oderus Urungus

Mon, 03/24/2014 - 14:57

The world lost an amazing person today. Some truly shocking and tragic news is coming out of Virginia as GWAR frontman Dave Brockie (Oderus Urungus) has passed on at the all too early age of just 50 years old.

According to MSN, officers were called to Brockie's home Sunday evening (March 23rd) and found the singer dead inside, Richmond police spokeswoman Dionne Waugh said Monday. Detectives don't suspect foul play at this time, and the medical examiner's office will determine the cause of death, Waugh said.

The band, founded in 1984, is best known for its members' high-profile costumes and stage theatrics, but beneath it all they had a strong message and were anything but shy in terms of getting it out there and shouting it from the hilltops. Brockie was also a staple of the Adam Green and Joe Lynch show for FEARnet, "Holliston," in which Brockie as Oderus played Adam's friend and confidante.

Having met Dave a few times, I can honestly say he was one of the coolest and nicest guys we've run across in this crazy and at times ass-backwards business. He will be missed sorely by his friends, family, bandmates, and fans across the world. We here at Dread Central would like to take this time to offer our sincerest of condolences to all.

Thank you, Dave... may you forever rock on, my brother! Horns held high.

Set Visit Coverage: Actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson Talks Godzilla from the Set!

Mon, 03/24/2014 - 13:00

Not unlike the ‘Big G’ himself, our coverage is unstoppable! Up next is an interview with Aaron Taylor-Johnson from the set of Warner Bros. and Legendary’s upcoming May 16 release of Gareth Edward’s reinvention of Godzilla, stemming from our visit to the Vancouver set last June.

Emanating from director Ishiro Honda’s classic 1954 original of the same name, the 2014 Edwards-helmed Godzilla features actors Bryan Cranston (“Breaking Bad”), Taylor-Johnson (Kick-Ass), Juliette Binoche (The English Patient), David Strathairn (The Bourne Legacy), Elizabeth Olsen and Ken Watanabe, in a script by Max Borenstein, Dave Callaham and Frank Darabont, which pits the world’s most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.

Thomas Tull, Jon Jashni, Mary Parent and Brian Rogers produce alongside executive producers Alex Garcia, Patricia Whitcher, Yoshimitsu Banno and Kenji Okuhira.

(Writer’s Note: Spoilers ahead so proceed at your own discretion.)

“They’ve kept it very classic to the original,” Taylor-Johnson, sitting down with us on the massive soundstage, told us between takes of the look of the titular character.

“I never really saw any of the other versions really, but I guess it went more dinosaur/T-Rex. This has gone back to the way it looked in the Toho version. I think Toho has approval to use the original creatures. I think people will be happy.”

As for the narrative of Legendary’s Godzilla, the film takes place in three separate time periods: the 1950’s (in which the U.S. Navy discovers the last surviving member of an ancient radioactive amphibious species surviving under the waters near the Marshall Islands and metes out a failed attempt to kill it with nuclear weapons), the 1990’s (in which the creature arises to smack the crap out of Japan) and in 2014, in which the appearance of creatures known as ‘M.U.T.O.’s’ (kaiju who look vaguely reminiscent of the creature at the center of the feature Cloverfield) appear, which in turn elicits the return of Godzilla from the depths of the ocean.

At its center however is the estranged relationship between Cranston’s character, a scientist obsessed, and his son, ‘Ford’ (Taylor-Johnson), an explosive ordinance disposal expert in the U.S. Navy, whose lives are displaced emotionally and geographically by the appearance of Godzilla and the ramifications of such.

“I think there’s a lot that relates to family in the relationships (of the characters),” Taylor-Johnson offered of the dynamic between his role of ‘Ford Brody’ and Cranston’s patriarchal ‘Joe’.

“You know, I play a father in this also. I guess we’re aiming for a pretty strong story that people can relate to. To make it feel like we can feel sympathy, or feel something towards these characters, and that we can embark on a journey (with them).”

We queried Taylor-Johnson as to whether the introduction of his character in Godzilla takes place during his childhood years, which he confirmed.

“A kid, yeah. And then we jump ahead fifteen years. In the years, in story terms, is when the radiation thing is happening. The monster is generating over that time period.”

As for his preparation in portraying a U.S. Navy specialist, “We have a Marine Sergeant Major, Jim Dever, who has worked (as a military technical advisor) on many films before onset,” said the actor.

“He did Black Hawk Down and Man of Steel, the next ‘Superman’ movie. He does a lot of movies like that, and is working really closely with us. There’s a lot of military stuff going on throughout this (film), so he keeps an eye on everyone. I spent a bit of time with him. It was really great fun; a new experience for me altogether. We have Navy captains on set to approve things and for us to see how they go about doing things. Everything is as accurate as can be.”

Regarding the physical demands inherent, “It’s a very demanding role, so you have to be pretty fit,” stated the twenty-four-year-old British actor.

Obviously a massive undertaking in regards to production, we asked Taylor-Johnson if he himself felt it a ‘massive movie’.

“Not really,” he answered.

“When you think about Gareth Edwards and his ethos of working and what he’s done before, it’s really just as small and intimate as an independent would feel like. It’s very family oriented in a sense. It’s a small group of people and we’re all working together to create great relationships with the filmmakers and producers and the cinematographer (whom) I’ve worked with before. This is my third one with Seamus McGarvey. It doesn’t feel like it’s on a huge scale, and I don’t think I’ve really done much green screen, considering the amount of special effects that will be needed. We’re shooting on location and they put it in afterwards. It’s not being shot in 3D. You don’t get a sense of this huge blockbuster type of feel(ing), but it’s got a raw and intimate energy.”

Given the subject matter, we asked if there is a glimpse of humor within the narrative.

“Not really. It’s more sort of thriller (with) drama and passion,” stated the actor.

“Emotionally in scenes I think I’ve been challenged more so in this than most dramas I’ve been in, which is kind of the reason I wanted to be a part of it. I knew Gareth had such a strong idea of having it full of heart and soul, and he wanted to attack those emotions. It’s really my journey in trying to get my family back together with this thing causing havoc across the world, where you do anything for the one you love.”

As for his perspective of Godzilla itself, “It’s more from the POV of people. You’d be in a car and see it through the (window). It’s like kind of ‘feeling it’. You’re a part of it, the audience. You’re starting to see it, and then it comes on to a TV screen or a news channel. It’s trying to sort of break it up a bit, so it’s not just ‘here’s great big monster fights.’”

We questioned him in regards to the military response to the threat.

“You know, I think it’s the usual thing of being given orders to take something down,” Taylor-Johnson offered.

“They’re also experiencing for the first time how these creatures respond to our weapons and things like that. It’s ongoing. I think the only one who has a different perspective on Godzilla is Ken Watanabe’s character, who is a science technician who has kind of been following it. So you see that through his point of view, what the creatures are capable of.”

Concerning his working relationship with Cranston, “Um, Bryan’s fucking brilliant,” he stated.

“He’s the most professional actor I’ve worked with in a long time. He brings so much energy and preparation (and) he’s always exploring new bits within a scene and giving ideas. It’s what you want, really; someone who will always kind of be there on the other side of the camera to act off of. He’s very giving (and) a warm, wonderful man. He’s really incredible (and) super funny. It’s been great (and I) couldn’t have asked for anything better.”

Given the digital aspects of the production, we queried him on his approach to acting with Godzilla itself.

“There was one time when we were on location... a lot of it is on location, but this is the first time we’ve seen the monster rise up, and I remember saying to Gareth, ‘Well, how big is it then?” And he says, “It’s about 300 feet.’”

Stay tuned for more from producers Alex Garcia and Mary Parent coming soon.

Buzzed About Feature In the House of Flies Heading to VOD and Limited Theaters in May

Mon, 03/24/2014 - 12:30

Parade Deck Films has acquired worldwide rights to up-and-coming director Gabriel Carrer’s In the House of Flies (review here) from Latefox Pictures and will be giving it a same-day VOD and limited theatrical release in select cities beginning May 9th.

For his third and most diabolical outing as director, Carrer (If A Tree Falls) brings retro 80s psychological terror back to the masses. The film tells the story of Heather and Steven (Lindsay Smith and Ryan Kotack), who find their lives changed forever when they’re suddenly abducted.

The psychological thriller is produced by Carrer, Chad Archibald, Nathan Hawkins, and Dave McLeod. With a killer score by composer Steve MacDougall, the film also features music from 80s icons Saga and Brighton Rock.

“Parade Deck Films is the perfect home for our little movie, and I couldn’t be happier with what plans they have in store for it," says director Gabriel Carrer.

"The moment I first saw this film, I knew Parade Deck Films had to acquire it. It's a terrific thriller, showcasing solid acting from the lead actors, Lindsay and Ryan. I absolutely love In the House of Flies, and I can't wait to share it with audiences worldwide," says co-president and founder of Parade Deck Films, Michael Ingram.

Synopsis:
Two young lovers, Heather (Lindsay Smith) and Steven (Ryan Kotack), find their lives inadvertently changed forever when they’re suddenly abducted. With no idea who has taken them, or for what purpose, the couple struggle to escape. Alone, isolated, and imprisoned in a cold, unforgiving basement, Heather and Steve soon find themselves pawns in the psychological game of their captor. In the House of Flies is “intense, horrific, well acted, and thought-provoking” (Dread Central).

First Details on the Gave Up the Ghost Segment of Anthology Film Creepers

Mon, 03/24/2014 - 12:00

It was exactly a month ago when we first told you about Creepers aka Horror Anthology Movie Vol. 2, and over this past weekend one of its segments, "Gave Up the Ghost," was filmed. Here's some concept art along with the first details on it.

From the Press Release:
Authors Gregory Lamberson (Carnage Road, The Jake Helman Files) and Jeff Strand (Pressure, I Have a Bad Feeling About This) are collaborating on a film adaptation of Strand's story "Gave Up the Ghost" for the upcoming horror anthology Creepers, executive produced by Mike T. Lyddon of Reel Progress.

Lamberson is producing and directing the short, which Strand adapted himself. Other Creepers entries are based on stories by Joe Lansdale, Edgar Allan Poe, and Lafcadio Hearn. None of the stories have been adapted for film before. "Gave Up the Ghost" was filmed in Buffalo, New York.

"When Mike contacted me about directing a segment of Creepers, I was excited the anthology was being built around literary stories," says Lamberson. "So many horror anthology films fail because they neglect the writing. I've wanted to work with Jeff for a long time and asked him what he had that would make a good short film. His first recommendation is the one we're shooting. He's known primarily as a comedic horror writer even though he writes all types of horror, and we're making a comedy."

Related Story: Production Set to Kick Off on Creepers aka Horror Anthology Movie Vol. 2

"Gave Up the Ghost" is about a desperate novelist (newcomer Drew Bialy) who loses his latest masterpiece when his computer dies. A computer repairman (John Renna, from Lamberson's Slime City Massacre) offers a novel solution to the writer's plight: summoning the ghost of the computer. Paul McGinnis, screenwriter of Lamberson's next feature, Killer Rack, plays the ghost. Additional cast members include Sam Qualiana (The Legend of Six Fingers), Jessica Zwolak (Dry Bones), and Alexander Sloan McBryde (Black Guy on a Rampage). Special make-up and digital effects will be provided by Arick Szymecki.

"As a horror movie fanatic in the 80’s, Slime City was one of my favorites of the splatter classics that I rented, illegally duplicated onto my own VHS tape, and watched repeatedly," says author Strand. "To know that Gregory Lamberson would one day be making a film based on my work would make my teenaged self have a heart attack and die a tragic death.”

"Gave Up the Ghost" will screen at film festivals before being incorporated into Creepers for a DVD release.

Co-starring are Seth Gabel (“Fringe”) as local aristocrat Cotton Mather, who fans the flames of Salem’s witch hunt; Ashley Madekwe (“Revenge”) as Mary’s mysterious, carnal accomplice; Xander Berkeley (“Nikita,” “Being Human”) as chief politician Magistrate Hale; Tamzin Merchant (Jane Eyre) as the forthright Anne Hale, an artist with a perilous attraction to Alden; Elise Eberle (The Astronaut Farmer) as the mysteriously afflicted Mercy Lewis; and Iddo Goldberg (“Mob City”) as outcast Isaac Walton.

In our never-ending quest to create headlines that sound absolutely filthy, we now bring you the first bit of casting news concerning M. Night Shyamalan's latest horror project, Sundowning. Read on for the latest!

According to The Wrap, Kathryn Hahn (pictured) and rising child actor Ed Oxenbould are set to star in the flick. Hahn plays a single mother whose two young children visit their grandparents… and things go very wrong. Oxenbould plays her son, who is protective of his sister.

No other plot details were immediately available, as Shyamalan prefers to surprise his audience. However, “sundowning” is described as a psychological phenomenon associated with increased confusion and restlessness in patients with some form of dementia. Symptoms also include agitation and mood swings.
