Sony Wins ‘In The Deep’ Bidding War; Described as ‘Jaws’ Meets ’127 Hours’

Fri, 09/19/2014 - 09:31

Shark movies continually fail all while Shark Week is the biggest thing on TV. With that, studios will continue to attempt their own Jaws in hopes of breaking through to audiences. First way to achieve this is to focus on a good story and characters – and much like Halloween is the end all of Halloween-themed movies, I’m not quite sure there’s a better shark story than Jaws.

Still, a bidding war just ended on a new Shark-based thriller when Sony Pictures paid high-six figures for In The Deep, a spec script by Tony Jaswinski (Kristy, Vanishing on 7th Street) that had created feeding frenzy all day.

Deadline reports that, tonally, the spec is described as a cross between 127 Hours meets Jaws, with a touch of Gravity thrown in for good measure. “A young woman who is dealing with the recent death of her mother is surfing on an isolated beach and gets stranded 20 yards off shore on a buoy. What lies between her and the shore is a huge great white shark.

It’s said to be an emotional piece for a young twentysomething star. Whomever lands the role will probably end up talking to a volleyball with a face drawn on it.

The film will be produced by former Warner Bros executive Lynn Harris; it is the first project she has put together with Matti Leshem in the new producing shingle Weimaraner Republic Pictures.

How Much Do You Love ‘Annabelle’?

Fri, 09/19/2014 - 09:16

A second TV Spot for New Line Cinema’s Annabelle has arrived, and talk a bit about demons latching themselves onto objects.

Their quasi The Conjuring prequel haunting theaters October 23.

Annabelle reunites the filmmakers behind 2013’s hugely successful supernatural thriller The Conjuring. James Wan, director of the global hit, is producing Annabelle with Peter Safran. John R. Leonetti, who served as cinematographer on The Conjuring, is directing.

John Form thinks he’s found the perfect gift for his expectant wife, Mia—a beautiful, rare vintage doll in a pure white wedding dress. But Mia’s delight with Annabelle doesn’t last long.

On one horrific night, their home is invaded by members of a satanic cult, who violently attack the couple. Spilled blood and terror are not all they leave behind. The cultists have conjured an entity so malevolent that nothing they did will compare to the sinister conduit to the damned that is now…Annabelle.

Annabelle Wallis (X-Men: First Class) and Ward Horton (The Wolf of Wall Street) star as the Forms. Oscar nominee Alfre Woodard (Cross Creek, Twelve Years a Slave) stars as Evelyn, a neighbor who owns a bookstore and is familiar with the occult. Rounding out the cast are Kerry O’Malley (TV’s “Those Who Kill) and Brian Howe (Devil’s Knot) as neighbors Sharon and Pete Higgins; Tony Amendola (TV’s “Once Upon A Time) as Father Perez; and Eric Ladin (TV’s “Boardwalk Empire,) as Detective Clarkin.

Invada Records Releasing Four ‘Hannibal’ OSTs On 2xLP Vinyl (Exclusive)

Fri, 09/19/2014 - 09:00

Invada Records have announced that they will be releasing all four volumes of the Hannibal OST on four 2xLP packages, Bloody-Disgusting can exclusively report.

The music is put together in a rather fascinating fashion:

All of the music featured on the Hannibal LP’s hail from the first and second season of the series and have been sequenced in the chronological order they appears on the show itself, allowing for an essential listening experience as dictated by the music’s creator.

The music, which is composed by Brian Reitzell, has received critical acclaim, with many, including myself, who believe that the music is one of the most critical aspects in creating the atmosphere of the show.

The vinyl details read:

Invada will be issuing HANNIBAL across four double-LPs available individually or as a package. The music will be available on collectors ‘coloured’ vinyl and black audiophile vinyl. Each double LP will be housed in a deluxe gatefold sleeve and Director David Slade has provided rare photography from his personal collection for the artwork. Each LP will come with a download card

Reitzell is known for his work with director Sofia Coppola (The Virgin Suicides, Lost In Translation) as well as the recent score to the hit video game Watch Dogs, which Invada released.

Below are samples from each volume of the Hannibal OST as well as two gorgeous images of the album artwork.

‘Godzilla’ Sequel Has Same Writer As First

Thu, 09/18/2014 - 22:47

I get tons of hate mail and hate-tweets because of my negativity towards Godzilla. And it’s going to continue right now, but with a little positive approach.

Max Borenstein wrote this summer’s remake, and will be reteaming with director Gareth Edwards on the sequel that’s pegged for a June 8, 2018 release.

While I have my qualms about Godzilla, I’d like to offer one plea to Borenstein: I’m on my hands and knees begging for Godzilla to actually interact with the human characters. That’s it; I don’t think that’s too much to ask, is it? I feel like offering some advice is a way of expressing what I didn’t like about the first, while also suggesting how to make it better. I’m looking forward to the sequel because there’s a lot to learn from the first, and by then Edwards is going to be an expert.

Borenstein wrote the first installment that relaunched the reptile and also penned Kong’s forthcoming origin, Skull Island. The latter was teased at Comic-Con and just got Tom Hiddleston starring and Jordan Vogt-Roberts directing. Borenstein also scripted the upcoming Seventh Son for Legendary.

‘Silent Hills’ May Be Delivered Episodically

Thu, 09/18/2014 - 20:01

Hold onto your butts, because we may be on the precipice of a new trend that’s about to sweep our favorite genre: episodic horror. I say this because it seems Kojima may be considering employing an episodic format for Silent Hills. The idea was first mentioned in a report on GameSpot, which hints at the possibility of it’s releasing in a way that’s similar to Telltale’s The Walking Dead or Resident Evil: Revelations 2.

I will always prefer to get “all” of the game at once, but I don’t mind bite-sized terror.

If this is the route Kojima wants to take with Silent Hills, I hope the result will be more like Revelations 2, where the plan is to release four episodes a week apart, rather than The Walking Dead, which has seen entire months go by with nary a new episode.

If you missed the wonderfully disturbing concept trailer we were gifted with earlier today, you may want to check it out.

The Hunt Begins in This ‘Bloodborne’ TGS Trailer

Thu, 09/18/2014 - 19:34

With Bloodborne, From Software is taking everything I loved about their Dark Souls series, including its unforgiving difficulty, and adding a potent dose of horror. In the game’s TGS trailer, we’re treated to more of its gothic environments, freaky monsters and gorgeous visuals.

Bloodborne arrives exclusively on the PlayStation 4 on Feb 6, and when that happens it may very well become one of the console’s first must-have games.

Capcom Reveals the Full ‘Resident Evil: Revelations 2′ Teaser Trailer

Thu, 09/18/2014 - 18:05

Capcom has released the full version of the teaser they used to announce Resident Evil: Revelations 2 earlier this month. Before you ask — yes, it’s still weird.

In this trailer, a little girl continues her slow motion run through a horde of people with green wristbands before it eventually turns into a mob of ghouls with red wristbands. Not once does she let go of that teddy bear, not even when she seems to find the person she was looking for. Speaking of which, this guy she stops in front of… is he doing the Michael Jackson Thriller dance?

Resident Evil: Revelations 2 hits PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One in early 2015.

First Look: ‘Halloween 6: The Curse of Michael Myers’ Producers’ Cut!

Thu, 09/18/2014 - 17:58

I’m in the middle of binge watching Anchor Bay Entertainment’s and Scream Factory’s Halloween Complete Collection Blu-ray set (full specs), and easily the most notable additions to the set is the various versions of the sixth film. I watched both, and actually think there’s good things about each of them – if only there were a way the two could have merged into a Station-like monstrosity!

Filibustering aside, Anchor Bay and Scream Factory have shared the following excerpt from the Halloween 6: The Curse of Michael Myers bonus features. In it, producer Malek Akkad speaks to the legend of the Producer’s Cut. You’ll also get a taste of just how good the transfer looks!

Easily one of the most eagerly awaited aspects of the 15-disc Deluxe set, the Halloween 6: The Curse of Michael Myers “Producers’ Cut” unfolds in the clarity of high definition for the first time on September 23rd. And let me tell you, it looks spectacular!

‘Resident Evil: Revelations 2′ Demo Footage Surfaces from TGS

Thu, 09/18/2014 - 16:52

We have our first look at how Resident Evil: Revelations 2 will play, courtesy of some demo footage recorded off-screen at TGS. The game looks like a blending of the mechanics of Resident Evil 4 with the gritty, gory style of The Evil Within. That’s not a complaint, I’m a fan. It looks like the Resident Evil game fans have been asking for for years.

Resident Evil: Revelations 2 arrives on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One in early 2015.

[TIFF '14 Review] ‘Big Game’ Feels Like A Long-Lost PG-13 Amblin Adventure!

Thu, 09/18/2014 - 16:07

Looking back at my childhood, I have very fond memories of going to the cinema with my dad. My first theatrical experience was Superman II and man did it take my breath away. I’ve been hooked on movies ever since. Naturally having kids of my own, I wanted to introduce to them the magic of venturing off to a specific place where we can escape for two hours and go on a unique type of an adventure, the kind that can’t be replicated via even the greatest home theatre system. In a time where more and more kids are exposed to movies via a computer monitor and/or a phone, I wanted to at least acquaint them to the alternative. That also goes with films themselves.

In my opinion, the 80’s gave birth to the finest era of family entertainment, ones that even adults can enjoy equally. Amblin Entertainment which was founded by iconic filmmaker Steven Spielberg and Producers Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall gave birth to many of the greatest including The Goonies, Gremlins, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial and the Back to the Future trilogy, to name a few. They were fun yet realized the importance of a good story and characters we can relate with. They also had an edge to them. Characters cussed and the threat packed enough punch that even the most fantastical of storylines felt grounded. As time went by, Hollywood has watered family films to the point where parents cringe at the mere idea of having to not only spend their hard-earned money towards them but worse; have to devote time to something they can’t connect with. After a long drought Writer/Director J. J. Abrams teamed up with Amblin to make the 2011 nostalgia-filled charmer Super 8. It successfully recreated the feel of that company’s earlier work.

In 2010, Writer/Director Jalmari Helander made his feature debut with the strange and darkly comedic Christmas cult classic Rare Exports. With its impressive technical attributes, Helander emerged as a talent to keep an eye on. For his sophomore feature Big Game there is no doubt he’s the real deal. Set in the Finnish wilderness, thirteen year old Oskari’s (Rare Exports’ Onni Tommila) rite-of-passage expedition is derailed when he encounters an Air Force One escape pod with the shaken President of the United States (Samuel L. Jackson). With a group of terrorists at his tail, Oskari is the President’s only chance of survival. Big Game is an action-thriller in the tradition of Die Hard and Cliffhanger — only it’s geared towards the entire family. This is textbook mainstream screenwriting at its most effective. The story, characterizations and themes are simple yet clearly defined. The two lead characters have an arc and it’s perfectly-executed from point A to B. Everything here has a purpose to the overall scheme of things. These are qualities you find in early Spielberg productions. Who said dumb fun can’t be smart?

Like the most memorable protagonists, the character of Oskari rises to the occasion but not without a personal journey of self-doubt to overcome. His conflict is the heart of the picture. The extremely likeable Onni Tommila nails this arc to the tee. Samuel L. Jackson is rock solid as well. It’s refreshing to see a portrayal of the President where he isn’t action-inclined. That vulnerability along with Oskari’s only helps to strengthen the threat, here played convincingly by Ray Stevenson (Punisher: War Zone) and Mehmet Kurtulus (The Tunnel). The wonderfully chemistry between Tommila and Jackson is the main reason why you are invested in the story. Onni and his real life dad Jorma Tommila once again play father and son, as they did in Rare Exports. While their relationship takes a backseat on this outing, it’s still integral especially to the development of Oskari. There is ample support from the veteran cast that includes Jim Broadbent (Cloud Atlas), Ted Levine (The Silence of the Lambs), Felicity Huffman (Desperate Housewives) and Victor Garber (Argo). Big Game proves that fine, committed performances can draw the viewer in despite the material being familiar territory.

This is a seriously well put-together action pic. Big Game apparently cost just north 11.5 mil US and if that’s the case: wow! The stunning Bavaria, Germany backdrop gives the film an incredible sense of scale. The wide shots take advantage of the majestic vista. The ambitious visual effects are impressive to say the least, worthy of a tentpole blockbuster. The film doesn’t have an abundance of action set-pieces and may take a tad longer to get to them than it probably should have but what we do get is expertly mounted. With a limited budget, Helander understands that the most involving action sequences are the ones derived organically. The action beats here serve the narrative flow, as well as being character-motivated. Big Game is nicely paced. There is a great build-up to the third act. Once Helander kicks things into high gear, the action is gleefully fun and imaginative. It all pays off satisfyingly in the film’s balls-out, nutty conclusion. These scenes are beautifully photographed, packed with the kind of carefully designed, memorable imagery that graced the action films of the 80’s and 90’s. It’s also refreshing to see a director not feel the urge to cut these moments to pieces. All the more admirable considering this is an indie production.

Big Game feels like a long-lost Amblin title. It’s an absolute charmer, the kind of PG-13 fare that will appeal to audiences of all ages. Like the kid-oriented flicks from the 80’s, there’s enough edge and cleverness to the violence to satisfy adults. Nothing here comes across as a cop out. Helander is a seriously first-rate craftsman. It’s just a matter of time before Hollywood comes knocking on his door. Big Game appealed to the kid in me. Very few movies nowadays achieve that. This captures that contagious fun factor and heart that made me fall smitten with the cinema to begin with. I’m definitely looking forward to seeing it again with my boys on the big screen.

“Dredd: The Musical” Begs For A Sequel

Thu, 09/18/2014 - 16:00

The 2012 sci-fi/action film Dredd was pretty damn awesome. I’ll fully admit that I enjoyed the absolute hell out of that movie and I would love to see a sequel, even though it seems rather apparent that Hollywood has little to no interest. However, that isn’t stopping fans from clamoring for one (rightfully so).

YouTube musical geniuses Legolambs have released “Dredd: The Musical”, where they turn the request for a sequel into a musical that “features” Karl Urban and Sylvester Stallone.

It’s definitely entertaining and worth checking out, especially if you’re like me and want a sequel.

So…do you?

This Freaky ‘Silent Hills’ Concept Video Just Sold Me

Thu, 09/18/2014 - 15:59

Looking for a couple weeks of steady nightmares? If you answered yes like any normal person would, that’s exactly what this Silent Hills concept video offers. If the dream team behind it — Hideo Kojima, Guillermo Del Toro and Norman Reedus — didn’t already have you on-board, this horrifying mind-f**k of a video should instill plenty of confidence that Kojima and friends know exactly what they’re doing with the next entry in this series.

‘The Evil Within’ TGS Trailer Offers a Glimpse of New Monsters, Ways to Die

Thu, 09/18/2014 - 15:23

I’m not entirely sure what’s going on in this new trailer for The Evil Within, fresh from this year’s Tokyo Game Show, which kicked off today. There’s a lot of hobbled running from a wounded Sebastian, as well as a number of painfully brief teases of more of the game’s monsters.

One creature looks like a mass of flesh with fleshy spider legs, another looks like a guy with a mass of flesh and tendrils on his face, then there’s that mass of flesh and teeth on the wall — wait! I’m noticing a theme…

The Evil Within hits PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on October 14.

No One Can Hear You Scream in the Latest ‘Alien: Isolation’ Trailer

Thu, 09/18/2014 - 14:59

Another day, another video showing the agonizing death of Alien: Isolation star Amanda Ripley. This is the third in a series of vignettes for the game — you can watch the other two here and here — and it ends much like the others, just before that lone xenomorph can do whatever it does with its prey after it’s been caught. This game needs to hurry up and get here already.

Alien: Isolation releases on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on October 7.

Check This Band Out: Spirits And The Melchizedek Children

Thu, 09/18/2014 - 14:30

It’s been a few weeks since I brought a band for you to check out and I feel like I need to do that again. So, without further ado, I’d like to introduce you to Spirits and the Melchizedek Children, a post rock band from Atlanta, GA.

I was turned onto them per the recommendation of one track in particular, “Lullabies For War”, which is the opening track on their new album So Happy, It’s Sad. I was told that it was as though the spirit of Akira Yamaoka (Silent Hill) was floating throughout the song, his style and influence felt throughout. In no way discrediting the band for their writing, I can say that this is 100% true. This track would be absolutely perfect in a Silent Hill game, capturing that mysterious, foggy, haunting atmosphere that we’ve come to know and love so well.

Head below to stream So Happy, It’s Sad and make sure to pick up a copy through Bandcamp.

‘V/H/S: Viral’ Red Band Trailer Unleashes Hell!

Thu, 09/18/2014 - 13:55

This shit’s gonna go viral this fall.

Magnet Releasing has pulled back the curtain on the official red brand trailer for V/H/S: Viral, which will complete our V/H/S trilogy when it hits VOD platforms October 23, 2014, with a limited theatrical run slated for November 21, 2014. It will screen this weekend at the ongoing Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas.

The new tape features segments directed by Marcel Sarmiento (Deadgirl, the incredible The ABCs of Death segment “D Is for Dogfight”), Nacho Vigalondo (Timecrimes, Extraterrestrial), Gregg Bishop (The Other Side, Dance of the Dead), as well as Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead (Resolution, Spring).

The new trailer is jam-packed with gags and spoilers, but at this point I don’t think we’re trying to keep anything secret. Fingers crossed you guys have as much fun with it as we did! Go forth, check out demon penises, demonic magicians, resurrected skeletons, and then watch this shit go viral!

“A police chase after a deranged ice cream truck has captivated the attention of the greater Los Angeles area. Dozens of fame—obsessed teens flock to the streets with their video cameras and camera phones, hell—bent on capturing the next viral video. But there is something far more sinister occurring in the streets of L.A. than a simple police chase. A resounding effect is created onto all those obsessed with capturing salacious footage for no other purpose than to amuse or titillate. Soon the discovery becomes that they themselves are the stars of the next video, one where they face their own death.”

Patrick Lawrie, Emmy Argo, Heather Hayes, Jessica Luza, John Curran, Justin Welborn, Mary Ralston, Michael Aaron Milligan, Gustavo Salmerón, Marian Álvarez, Xavi Daura, Esteban Navarro, Nick Blanco, Chase Newton, Shane Bradey and Jayden Robison star.

Marcel Sarmiento, TJ Cimfel, Dave White, Gregg Bishop, Nacho Vigalondo, Justin Benson and Aaron Moorehead wrote the screenplays.
