Ya know in this day and age when things are so final it's nice to see Danny Boyle keeping things loose when it comes to the question of if "28 Months Later" will happen. According to Boyle there's a 40/60 chance that the film will happen. He also said that he doesn't like zombie movies. He also kind of sounds like a prick. So that's all confirmed now.
The much discussed anthology flick "The ABC's of Death" will finally find its way onto DVD and Blu-Ray on May 21st. For those of you who are jerks and didn't listen to our podcast on the film, it's 26 different shorts each showing one special way to die for every letter in the alphabet. I have no idea why you wouldn't want to listen to the podcast though. Think of my hilarious comments but in sound form. I'm almost jealous that you actually get to hear me and I just have to be me.
The post for Bobcat Goldthwait upcoming found footage flick "Willow Creek" has hit the nets and it looks pretty sweet. It's got all kind of bigfoot action and at first I was disapointed to find out that it has nothing to do with the monster truck but then I got over it. Then I ate some graham crackers.
XLrator Media has picked up the U.S. distribution rights to "The Banshee Chapter", a new 3D flick from first time writer/director Blair Erickson. The film follows a young journalist searching for her friend who has been experimenting with mind-altering drugs in a secret government test. The story is supposedly based on real witness testimonies and is 100% bullcrap and shouldn't be trusted. I don't want to believe.
In Real People News:
I've never trusted male flight attendants. I don't care what you say. This one 39 year old one that has been arrested for molesting a sleeping passenger just proves my point. I also don't care for older flight attendants now that I think of it. So this is kind of just two birds with one stone.
One time I was on a bus stuck in traffic outside the New York Port Authority when the driver finally snapped and kicked us all out on the entry ramp. That's not even a joke. But this guy in Nebraska now hold my title for most frightening nut bag bus mover person now that he was caught on camera beating the hell out of a passenger before dragging him off the bus. Just slightly though.
Anthology films, they're so hot right now. Take "ABC's Of Death" a new one that has a short tale for each letter of the alphabet which has just been slapped with a January 31st VOD release date. Take it... I honestly have no idea how to wrap this up.
I've had a little soft spot in my heart for the big screen version of "Preacher" that's been in the works for some time now only because it's the only comic series I've ever read and I like to make annoying comments like, "Oh have you read that? It's a lot better in print form". But the thing has been in limbo for years and I had almost given up on it ever happening. But during a recent interview screenwriter John August dropped word that he really wants to see the film be made but "it won't be any time soon". Thought this was going in a different direction didn't you? Sorry.
Amazon studios still seems like some sort of weird joke to me but apparently it's a real thing and they make movies happen. They've just dropped that they'll be producing the film adaptation of the novel "Seed" which focuses on a family being terrorized by an evil presence that not only wants them to die, but die slowly. No word on director, cast or release date but rest assured you'll know about it as soon as info pops up, along with any new hot deals for your brand new Kindle Hello Kitty cover.
"Paranormal Activity 4" has been given an R rating for language and violence. We're all thinking it... booo no nudity.
Three days down and one to go. No time for long winded introductions as there's too much cinematic madness to sift through. After a while the feeling of being shellshocked started to settle in as the days long bombardment of films threatens to overwhelm.
