Hard rock band Disturbed are back from their hiatus in a huge way! Not only have they announced that they have been secretly writing and recording a new album titled Immortalized, which will be released August 21st, they also have a brand new music video for their first single “The Vengeful One”, which was directed by Phil Mucci!
The video shows Disturbed’s mascot, known only as “The Guy”, taking down a television network that is essentially Cable 54, the station from They Live. The channel broadcasts subliminal messages that turn people into zombie-like creatures, a lá The Signal, and it’s up to “The Guy” to utterly destroy the station and save humanity. While the song might be rather safe, the video is anything but.
You can pre-order Immortalized here.
Check out over 80 hi-res images from Thor: Dark World director Alan Taylor’s Terminator Genisys, in theaters July 1st.
“When John Connor (Jason Clarke), leader of the human resistance, sends Sgt. Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) back to 1984 to protect Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke) and safeguard the future, an unexpected turn of events creates a fractured timeline. Now, Sgt. Reese finds himself in a new and unfamiliar version of the past, where he is faced with unlikely allies, including the Guardian (Arnold Schwarzenegger), dangerous new enemies, and an unexpected new mission: To reset the future…”
The Terminator Genisys screenplay is by Laeta Kalorgridis (Avatar) & Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry). The film also stars J. K. Simmons, Dayo Okeniyi, Matt Smith, Courtney B. Vance and Byung-Hun Lee.
Major spoilers ahead. You’ve been warned!
Last week I told you Don Allen was bravely representing Bloody Disgusting at E3, and playing all the games, such as the upcoming Resident Evil 0 HD remaster. E3 may be over, but it’s not official until we get through two more games, and this time there’s a theme to it. Below you’ll find footage from two indies that aim to take us into the parts of the ocean that no one dares to go.
SOMA has been on our radar the longest, so let’s start with that.
Frictional Games is aiming for a fall 2015 release for PC and PS4.
Continuing the theme of ocean-based horror, where an unshakable feeling of claustrophobia is how you know you’re alive and not being slowly digested by a Giant Squid or Kraken that mistook you for some sort of sea floor-dwelling man-lobster is Narcosis.
This game doesn’t have a release date yet, but it might have sharks.
It is with a heavy heart that we bring news that, earlier today, famous film composer James Horner lost his life in a plane crash in Santa Barbara, California. When Variety reported on the incident earlier, it was only clear that the private plane was the property of Horner and that the then-unidentified pilot had been killed. Speculation has run rampant since and official confirmation has not yet been made. According to a statement by his assistant, as well as what we have heard from our own industry connections, it appears that it was indeed Mr. Horner himself who perished in the crash.
An esteemed veteran film composer who had worked in the industry since the late 1970s, James Horner created an impressive body of work that spanned across numerous genres and mediums. From action (48 Hrs., Commando) to drama (Apollo 13, A Beautiful Mind) to high adventure (The Rocketeer, The Mask of Zorro) to historical epics (Braveheart, Titanic), Horner excelled musically at almost every subject he put his mind to. And then, of course, there are his contributions to our own favorite genres.
Horner was no stranger to science fiction, fantasy, and horror; crafting the scores to some of our most beloved classic and cult favorites. Aliens, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Wolfen, Humanoids from the Deep, Krull, Willow, Honey I Shrunk the Kids, Avatar, and even Hocus Pocus are but a few from his countless contributions to the cinema of the fantastique and all contain themes that continue strike a chord with this writer today.
Rest in peace, Mr. Horner. You will be missed and your work will never be forgotten.
E3 is over. It was a wild ride that brought an array of news for gamers of all shapes, sizes and K/D ratios, just as the prophecy foretold. Whatever you might be into these days, chances are it gifted you with something to get excited about. Now that the dust has finally settled, we can do as our ancestors have done for generations and spend this evening reflecting, recapping, and if you were on the show floor, recuperating.
Over 50,000 “prosumers” flocked to LA last week to soak up some gaming goodness, making it the biggest year the expo has had since it was closed to the general public in 2007. Next year’s E3 runs from June 14-16, 2016, by the way.
E3 2015 wasn’t as exciting for horror fans as I would’ve liked it to be, but that was mostly the fault of a few glaring omissions and a general lack of surprises. We’ll save the former for another time. First, let’s recap the stuff that got my nether regions aflutter with antici-…Doom
Bethesda might have raised the bar too high for E3 proper with their reveal of id Software’s Doom reboot. The game looks fantastic, but you certainly don’t need to take my word for it when you can see it in action here, here and here.
Release Date: Spring 2016 (PC, PS4, XBO)SOMA
Frictional Games reminded us how great they are at getting under our skin with SOMA’s E3 trailer. What’s even more impressive than their drip-feed marketing campaign is how they’ve used it to keep interest high without revealing too much. This
Release Date: September 22, 2015 (PC, PS4)The Walking Dead: Michonne
Telltale made good on their promise to bring us more Walking Dead at E3, and that’s exactly what they did with the reveal of a new Michonne-centric miniseries appropriately titled The Walking Dead: Michonne.
In related news, the developer also confirmed the third season in their acclaimed episodic series will premier in 2016.
Release Date: Fall 2015 (PC, Mac, PS3, PS4, 360, XBO, iOS, Android)
Today was a dark day for fans of NBC’s “Hannibal” as it was announced that the series had been cancelled, making the third season the final one we would get to see. We still have ten episodes left, however, so we can all hope for a memorable but final end to this amazing journey.
However, just in case the show gets picked up at another station or platform, creator/show runner Bryan Fuller makes it clear that he has a plan, according to TV Line.
My idea for Season 4 was perhaps one of the coolest yet. So I would love to do it in some capacity. It would have explored the Hannibal-Will Graham relationship in a much deeper fashion than the series ever has before.
According to Deadline, the series might have a second chance on Amazon, which has, “…exclusive rights to the existing three seasons of the show as part of a four-year, five-show deal with NBCUniversal.” The other option is that Netflix will swoop in and save the day.
Right now, it’s far too early to have any concrete information. All we can do is hope that Will and Hannibal’s chase isn’t over yet.
Gearing up for the full trailer premiere tomorrow at midnight, Paramount has released a teaser for Greg Plotkin’s Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension, in theaters October 23, 2015.
The latest Paranormal Activity will be the final film in the franchise. In fact, the finale will finally reveal Toby, and answer all of our questions, as it was revealed earlier today, along with the first images.
“Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension, directed by Gregory Plotkin, follows a new family, the Fleeges — father Ryan (Chris J. Murray), mother Emily (Brit Shaw) and their young daughter Leila (Ivy George) — who move into a house and discover a video camera and a box of tapes in the garage.
When they look through the camera’s lens, they begin to see the paranormal activity happening around them — including the re-emergence of young Kristi and Katie.” (USA Today)
