daybreakers

ABC has officially picked up the new series "666 Park Avenue" which focuses on a couple who tend to an apartment building full of spooky time happenings. Not going to lie I thought they had picked up the show months ago but what the hell do I know. I could be pulling your leg about this entire thing. Maybe there isn't even a show. Maybe ABC isn't even a real station!

Most of us know Caroline Williams as Stretch from "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2" but now the final girl has been cast in a new film titled "Contracted". The film is about a young woman who contracts what she thinks is your average run of the mill STD during a one night stand. Williams will play the girl's mother and confidant when that not so fresh feeling takes over.

BGH's own fancy lad Jon really loved "Daybreakers" so he'll be moistening up his pantaloons when he hears the news that the films directors, the Spierig Brothers, and Ethan Hawke are once again teaming up for a new film. Titled "Predestination", the film follows a secret Government agency who sends their grunts through time to stop murderers and terrorists. Pretty sure there's a new Bruce Willis movie titled "Looper" coming out with almost the same exact plot. I blame you, Jon.

The John Landis produced joint "Some Guy Who Kills People" will see it's way to a DVD release on July 3rd for your viewing pleasure. The DVD will be chock full of commentary, extra footage and the short that inspired the film about a man who snaps and takes out his anger on a group of High School bullies who captured and tortured him. There's also an ice cream parlor, so there's a little something for your sweet tooth, Hans.

J.J. Abrams has set the internet on fire once again as details for his next film "Super 8" begin to surface. Focused on a group of teens shooting a film on a Super 8 camera in the 70's or 80's, they find a nasty surprise when they finally get the film developed. Early speculation marks "Super 8" as a possible prequel to "Cloverfield".

The Spierig brothers, who last brought us the vampire thriller "Daybreakers", have signed on for a surprising new project; the boys plan on bringing us "Power of the Dark Crystal", a belated sequel to "The Dark Crystal"! Early reports state that they will continue with a mix of puppetry and live action actors, so Andy Serkis can turn his 3D motion capture device back off.

Sam Rockwell adds to his already varied resume as he signs on for Jon Favreau's comic book adaptation "Cowboys Vs. Aliens". Playing an old west bartender signing on to fight the little green men, this just further proves that I'll watch anything Sam Rockwell does, I don't really care what they cast him as.

Yes, Ethan Hawke is a vampire... yes, those are his real teeth.

Zombie fans, your long wait is over. "Dead Snow" has finally gotten a release date here in the states. Slated for February 23rd, the movie will come in both DVD and Blu-ray flavors.

In light of this weekend's release of 'Daybreakers", star Ethan Hawke sits down to talk about the film. Of note is a reassuring comment on his beliefs that it is important for Vampires to be rated R creatures.

Sean Bean has a new medieval plague epic in the works and Revolver studios has released a bunch of new stills from the film.

Are you starving for some Frank Henenlotter classic cheese and gore? Well then, you're in luck; his latest film "Bad Biology" is due on DVD January 26th.

Indie film efforts are usually a fairly brave endeavor for film makers. When decide to take on a post-apocalyptic setting with little money, its even more brave. Judging from the trailer for the upcoming post oil collapse adventure "Downstream", these guys may have actually pulled it off.

Meanwhile, the last remnants of the human race are about to start fighting back. For more from the Spierig brothers, check out their strange take on the vampire mythos, "Undead" (2003).
