Co-directors Jonathan Milott and Cary Murnion‘s have just unleashed a new movie poster for their horror comedy Cooties (2014), a SpectreVision film. This poster looks awesome and features the craziness of the zombie film beautifully. Love the tagline “Please Don’t Feed the Children”. Cooties releases in movie theaters and On Demand September 18, 2015. Cast in Cooties are Elijah Wood (The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings), Rainn Wilson (The Office) and Alison Pill.

Horror legend and icon Sir Christopher Lee has passed away Sunday June 7, 2015 at the age of 93. This is sad, terrible and horrible news. Sir Christopher Lee’s wife only released this news recently because she first wanted to notify all family and friends first. Lee was hospitalized in London recently for respiratory problems but passed away due to heart failure on Sunday June 7, 2015. Sir Christopher Lee, born May 27, 1922 has nearly 300 films to his acting career besides his heavy metal music. Lee started acting in the 1940’s where he met Peter Cushing during The Curse of Frankenstein in 1957. Cushing and Lee became life long friends. Other highlights of his career are from The Lord of the Rings, Star Wars: Episode II & III, James Bond’s The Man with the Golden Gun (1974) or his many great roles as Dracula in various Hammer Films. Sir Christopher Lee will be missed by many generations of fans including myself.
FOX’s X-Files Revival Season 1 has started production and today we have a glimpse at Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) and Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) via the X-Files Twitter account. Are you ready and stoked to see the return of X-Files on January 24, 2016? The behind-the-scenes photo features the differences between the two characters beautifully and I know they have a lot to catch up on. I just don’t see Mulder (Duchovny) the same since Californication but I would have loved to have seen a little of that character in X-Files, that no where fits in the world of X-Files but it would have been the pinnacle of excellent writing.
The “Amateur Night” segment was definitely one of my favorites in the entire V/H/S franchise and I remember saying, right after watching, I wish there was more. Good news it that there will be. Director Gregg Bishop and Chiller TV are putting together a full feature film adaptation of “Amateur Night.” Bishop has many other films under his belt like “Dante the Great” from V/H/S Viral (2014) and Dance of the Dead (2008). Gregg Bishop‘s Siren (2016) will release somewhere in 2016 and I hope they give more info on the monster and the purpose for which it kills people.
Roland Emmerich‘s Independence Day 2 (2016) first concept art has the “Mother Ship” at large proportions… I mean it looks larger than the Earth itself. Independence Day 2 (2016) releases in movie theaters on June 24, 2016 so we have a bit of time for more teases in the near future. Cast in Independence Day 2 are Jeff Goldblum, Vivica A. Fox, Jessie Usher, Liam Hemsworth, William Fitchner, Maika Monroe and Bill Pullman.

Paul Feig‘s Ghostbusters (2016) has added Chris Hemsworth to the cast as the Receptionist. Paul Feig’s upcoming Ghostbusters film is going to be a comedy sci-fi film and this is hilarious news, Thor answering the phones. Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters will be an all female Ghostbusters cast (Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones) so I guess it seems fitting that the receptionist should be male. Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters releases in movie theaters this upcoming July 22, 2016.
