The Wolf Among Us: Episode Five Gets a New Teaser Trailer and July Release Date

Fri, 07/04/2014 - 14:48

"Is this any good?" I hand over the graphic novel, a novice with alt. comics. Brad, the bear of a man and small town comic book store owner, nods approvingly, "It’s great." I look a little reserved; as a student, I didn’t have money for bad comics, but Brad persisted.

"Look, read it; if you don’t like it, bring it back and I will give you a full refund," an unheard of endorsement in the comic book realm. That book was Fables, and it’s still sitting in the front row of my bookshelf because it was one of the best I have ever read.

Fables has jumped over to the gaming realm with The Wolf Among Us, released in a series of short episodes. Season 1 reaches its climax with the July releases of its final episode, "Cry Wolf," announced with a brand new teaser trailer.

North American Playstation 3, Mac, and PC users will get the first taste as they will have access on Tuesday, July 8th, through the Playstation Store, Steam and the Telltale online store. On July 9th the game becomes available for Xbox 360 users and European PS3 owners. Purchase of the single episode costs $4.99, or gamers can opt for a season pass for $24.99, which grants access to all episodes.

iPhone and iPad users can get in on the fun on July 10th with the final episode holding its $4.99 price point or nabbing the Episodes 2-5 multipack for $14.99.

A complete collection of the entire first season will be available November 18th with a disc=based version coming to consoles for $29.99. The complete version will be available for PS3 and Xbox 360, but in even bigger news, it will also give next-gen consoles their first taste of the series with the title coming to PS4 and Xbox One on the same day.

Developers revealed the storyline of the final game, saying Bigby Wolf will confront a powerful enemy: a dark force that has been feeding on the desperation of Fabletown's seedy underbelly. But when hidden truths are revealed, you must decide exactly what justice means in the gripping season finale of 'The Wolf Among Us.'

Positive reviews have been coming at this series harder than an Aroldis Chapman fastball. The previous game, A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing, received a 5 out of 5 from Joystiq and Digital Trends with PC Gamer calling it, "the tenderest, loneliest, and most gruesome so far."

The game may prove enjoyable for horror fans as it has been rated M for mature due to "Intense Violence, Blood and Gore, Sexual Themes, Partial Nudity, Strong Language, and Use of Tobacco."

Guillermo del Toro Talks Pacific Rim 2 and Not Giving Up on At The Mountains of Madness

Fri, 07/04/2014 - 14:17

The Wall Street Journal recently caught up with prolific filmmaker Guillermo del Toro to talk about about his upcoming sequel to Pacific Rim and keeping hope alive for At the Mountains of Madness. Read on for the skinny!

"I said to [Legendary Pictures], [At the Mountains of Madness] is the movie that I would really love to do one day, and it’s still expensive," he admitted. "I think that now, with the way I’ve seen PG-13 become more and more flexible, I think I could do it PG-13 now, so I’m going to explore it with [Legendary], to be as horrifying as I can, but to not be quite as graphic."

"There’s basically one or two scenes in the book that people don’t remember that are pretty graphic. Namely, for example, the human autopsy that the aliens do, which is a very shocking moment. But I think I can find ways of doing it. We’ll see. It’s certainly a possibility in the future. Legendary was very close to doing it at one point so I know they love the screenplay. So we’ll see. Hopefully it’ll happen. It’s certainly one of the movies I would love to do."

Del Toro continues, "I think there’s a really strong possibility we can do it at Legendary because now they are at Universal, and Universal, you may remember, almost greenlit the movie. The fact that we now have two studios together that love the material, and if they support each other, they are risking a lot less. It would be great to do it, but I’ve understood that you don’t plan your career; it just happens."

As for Pacific Rim 2...

"I can tell you: [screenwriter Zak Penn] and I really went in, we started with [screenwriter Travis Beacham] about a year and a half ago, kicking ideas back and forth. And, admittedly, I said to Zak, "Let’s keep kicking ideas till we find one that really, really turns the first movie on its ear, so to speak. We came up with a really, really interesting idea. I don’t want to spoil it, but I think at the end of the second movie, people will find out that the two movies stand on their own. They’re very different from each other, although hopefully bringing the same joyful giant spectacle. But the tenor of the two movies will be quite different."

"I’m hoping to bring the same idea I had in the first movie, that was to make it multicultural and humanistic as much as possible, to make characters from many nationalities or gender, to make them equal in the scope of the adventure, in the day-to-day of the adventure. So we’re bringing a few characters that are new and hopefully doing good work managing those that survived the first movie."

Stay tuned, kids!

Dread Central Turns 8!

Fri, 07/04/2014 - 10:00

On July 4th, 2006, Dread Central opened its doors, and for nearly a decade now we've been bringing you constant horror content every day since. No holidays. No days off. We're always here, and we are always happy to do so. So it's with great pride that we wish you, our readers, a happy anniversary!

Being a writer in the web business is not easy. There are so many bumps along the way that it gets hard to remember the smoother patches. One thing that doesn't change, though, is how absolutely worth it it all is.

You guys give us a platform, and we do our best to honor that gift. We've made each other laugh, screamed over our disagreements (complete with CAPS LOCK ON), and have learned so much from one another. Every day that we get to do this is a blessing, and in an industry where so many websites comes and go, our longevity is something we are thankful beyond words for. You make every day Halloween. Really, is there anything better than that?

Lots of Dread Central staffers have gone on to work on some pretty big things, and that's another thing we're proud of. No matter where life has taken us, we always have this home. The Foywonder, Andrew Kasch, Buz Wallick, Mr. Dark, and Nomad have been here since day one, and we're lucky to have them. To them I'd like say thank you for sticking by us on behalf of myself, KW Low, and of course Jon Condit.

Other DC family members worthy of our unconditional gratitude are Scott Hallam, Gareth Jones, Matt Fini, Sean Decker, Brad McHargue, Drew Tinnin, Heather Buckley, Serena Whitney, Aaron Williams, CrixLee, and Alex DiVincenzo. We'd also like to welcome and thank the class of 2013/2014 - John Squires, Scott Dell, Staci Layne Wilson, Anthony Arrigo, Matt Molgaard, and Vanessa Gomez. You guys are as fucking rock and roll as they come.

As always, my personal thanks go to Jon Condit, KW Low, and Debi Moore. If not for this trio, Dread Central simply wouldn't exist. As a matter of fact, neither would I. You three have been collectively saving my life for years, and I would be ZERO without you. Especially Debi. Someone's gonna erect a statue of her one day for her saint-like service of putting up with me every day. I love you guys more than words could ever fully express.

Then there's you sickos! Kidd Capone, Terminal, David Fullam, James Coker, AlienSharkBoy, Frank_Dracman, theGoldenSimatar, Screamz, LSD Zombie, Nazo, MagusMaleficus, Cinemascribe, MichaelRAllen, Cash Bailey, elric300, GODFLESH69, NYC-Hearts, MonsterMash, addeisdead, Shambling_in_Bandages, shallowcuts, RottenJesus, PrairieGhost, Diavolo, LifeMi, will graham, Jerel Of The Dead, Orlovsky, Gus Bjork, conundrum, Rob, and of course our Mexican brother from another mother, "El Soccer Dude" J. Oviedo. You cats post just about every week at least, and we're proud to have you as not only our regulars but also our peers. Thanks for making the DC community one of the best and friendliest places online. And if you're reading this and you haven't jumped in, fucking do so already! I know you're there! I can see you online!

Here's to another year, kids! Thank you.

Sharks and the City: Get a Look at the Story of Sharknado 2: The Second One and Meet the Cast

Thu, 07/03/2014 - 17:12

A few days ago we saw a 3-minute clip from Sharknado 2: The Second One, and now we have a 4-minute featurette to share that give us a look into the film's story. In addition, check out "Castnado," which explains why a slew of famous faces wanted to be part of the phenomenon.

In Sharknado 2: The Second One, a freak weather system turns its deadly fury on New York City, unleashing a "sharknado" on the population and its most cherished, iconic sites – and only Fin and April (Ian Ziering and Tara Reid, returning from the original) can save the Big Apple.

Kelly Osbourne, Judd Hirsch, Andy Dick, Judah Friedlander, Vivica A. Fox, and Mark McGrath also appear in the Syfy Original Movie, which promises cameos by the likes of Perez Hilton, rapper Biz Markie, Salt-N-Pepa's Pepa (aka Sandra Denton), Robert Klein, and professional wrestler/Olympic gold medalist Kurt Angle.

Anthony C. Ferrante returns to direct a screenplay by Thunder Levin, who also wrote Sharknado.

Sharknado 2 premieres on Wednesday, July 30th, at 9 PM PT/ET, just a little more than one year after the original Sharknado aired.

Trapping a young couple inside the cinema during a midnight screening, he sets a deadly plot in motion to make them the unwitting stars of his own chilling horror movie. As they struggle for their lives, the pair are unaware that the CCTV cameras are rolling and that the stage is set for a fatal finale.

The third chapter in the Insidious film franchise has gotten a new release date. Originally slated for April 3, 2015, Insidious Chapter 3 will now arrive on May 29, 2015. The third film will be directed and written by Leigh Whannell.

Jason Blum and his Blumhouse Productions, which produced both Insidious and Insidious: Chapter 2, are producing the next installment along with Oren Peli and James Wan. Steven Schneider, Brian Kavanaugh-Jones, Peter Schlessel, Lia Buman, and Entertainment One’s Xavier Marchand are executive producing.

Focus Features, which acquired the rights to release Insidious: Chapter 3 from FilmDistrict, plans to bring the film to U.S. theaters on May 29, 2015. eOne will distribute the picture in Canada, the UK, and Spain. Sony will distribute the picture in the rest of the world. Principal photography of the movie is scheduled to start next month on July 7th.

The first Insidious told the story of Josh and Renai Lambert and their son Dalton confronting the demons that possess the young boy. Insidious: Chapter 2, the terrifying sequel, followed the haunted Lambert family as they sought to uncover the mysterious childhood secret that has left them dangerously connected to the spirit world. Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne, Lin Shaye, Ty Simpkins, and Barbara Hershey reprised their roles in the film directed by James Wan, who also directed the first installment.
