Wild Speculation: Who are Ridley Scott's Space Jockeys?

iO9 has a great article about Ridley Scott and his "Space Jockeys" (pictured above). They made their first mysterious appearance in "Alien" (1979), and are starting to pop up in promotional materials for "Prometheus". So since this is the internet, they decided to dig up every reference that exists to the creatures to try and make sense of how they fit into the universe.

What we're watching this weekend: "The Grey" + More Livestreaming tonight!

I'm out of jokes about "The Grey", at least for the moment. I figured I should save some for the show, which we'll be recording this coming Monday. In general, cheesy movies or not, I'm happy to be back in a theater after the doldrums of December. Do this as long as we have, and you gain a new appreciation for the theater experience, content not-withstanding. The week after that is what will hopefully be the first great horror film of the year, Hammer's remake of "The Woman in Black". The buzz is heavy for this one in the BGH offices.

Your weekly Syfy eye-destruction: Swamp Volcano

Nevermind the fact that the title makes no sense, it has Brad Dourif!

Trailers: "The Shrine", from the guy who brought you "Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer"

Even though there's not a lot that's inspired looking to this trailer, the words "From the guy who brought you Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer" is enough for me to give this a shot. I will say, the visual style looks great. How does monster Robert Englund fit in here? Only time will tell...

Featurettes: It's like "Ghost Rider", only more extreme you guys

Here it is! I saw this featurette in the theater this weekend before "Underworld: Awakening". In it, Nic Cage talks about the director and how he's basically a nutjob who risks life and limb to get the most "extreme" action shots possible. I'm going to start chugging Mountain Dew now in anticipation. Sarcasm aside, at a certain point I became excited for "Ghost Rider: Vengeance". It's best to just go with these things, why ruin pure, unadulterated joy? (vid after the jump)

Posters: "The Raven" is still a mystery to me

"Coming soon" from the dude who brought you V For Vendetta, this weird Edgar Allen Poe movie starring John Cusack that no one seems to be able to make sense of. It's like Sherlock Holmes, only if he were actually Edgar Allen Poe, but not old and sad, more like young and emo. And he's tracking down a serial killer. Make sense yet? (click to enhance...)

Trailers: "FDR: American Badass" has werewolves, Barry Bostwick

Holy 'effin crap. A thousand times yes to this. The film's currently in post-production, so do your best to contain yourself for a few more months before we can see it. Also, if you're at work, make sure to put headphones on, unless the sound of someone screaming "FUCK POLIO!" is ok at your work. If it is, please let me know where I can direct my resume...

Posters: "Devil's Carnival", plus the opposite of a teaser trailer

Here's some artwork for "Devil's Carnival", a film that just announced it has a member of Slipknot in it. Which one? I'm guessing someone with a mask whose parents didn't hug him when he was a kid. Just a stab in the dark.

Bonus, an ELEVEN MINUTE TEASER TRAILER. To hell with the definition of "Teaser"... half the movie, unedited. World' best PR campaign.
