Reaver was the winner of the Best Sci-Fi Short at the FilmQuest Film Festival 2015. Len LoBiondo directed the amazing short film and blew a lot of people away with the story, visuals and overall awesomeness of the film. A father (Richard Burgi) mysteriously disappears while a brother and sister look to confront this malevolent supernatural entity. Watch the short film and tell us what you think of it.
Guillermo del Toro is no longer attached to Justice League Dark and Warner Bros. just pushed the movie to New Line Cinema; wait… what just happened here? Firstly, del Toro is busy with Pacific Rim 2 (2017) and Crimson Peak (2015) as well as the latest Hellboy 3 coming soon tease. Secondly, Warner Bros. is focusing on their top-tier DC Comics characters like Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and the Justice League movies that they have moved the lower-tier characters like Constantine, Jason Blood, Zatanna and Deadman to New Line Cinema. At New Line Cinema, these movies will most likely receive a smaller budget. This also includes Vertigo Comics’ Sandman movie which is to be directed by and starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt. This is bittersweet because the movies will not get the high budgets as before but will still get made at some time so at least there is a win for fans. Sorry we lost del Toro in the process but we can only expect him to do only so much at one time.
Paul Feig heard my Ghostbusters request, probably others too, and revealed the Ghostbusters proton pack for the web to see. Can’t really tell the depth of these packs but they do not seem that HUGE as the originals did and besides the grit on them, they should be very portable. I would like to see a little more blinking lights, “power-up” lights and “revving up” when in the movie because that was one of the appeals as a child and even to many older fans, all the bells and whistles on a proton pack. Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters (2016) releases in move theaters on July 22, 2016. Cast includes Chris Hemsworth, Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones.
Freddie Wong under his production company Rocket Jump released a new Starcraft short film titled The Rush. The title stems from the “Zerg Rush” term from the highly popular Starcraft from Blizzard. “Zerg Rush” is when one player amasses a rapid amount of units as quickly as possible in order to overwhelm their opponents before they can establish a proper base. Watch as this small human colony gets swarmed by a massive horde of enemies with no way of survival, the short film tells the story of tragedy in a very believable and solid pay, great job Wong. Freddie Wong co-directed this short film with Matthew Arnold with a cast of Ellary Porterfield and Nico David. Simply awesome and Blizzard had better watch this team for future projects.
FUNimation Entertainment has picked up live-action Attack on Titan (2015), aka Shingeki no kyojin: Attack on Titan (2015) for US distribution. The world premiere will be held at the Egyptian Theatre in Los Angeles, CA on Tuesday July 14, 2015 in Japanese with English subtitles. Haruma Miura (Eren) and Kiko Mizuhara (Mikasa) along with director Shinji Higuchi will be present at the world premiere hosted by FUNimation. Shinji Higuchi will also be present at the San Diego Comic-Con 2015 for autographs on Sunday July 12, 2015. I cannot wait to see how they pulled this film off.
David F. Sandberg‘s Lights Out feature film is currently filming and will be produced by New Line Cinema and James Wan via Atomic Monster. Teresa Palmer (Warm Bodies (2013)) has been announced as the newest cast member along with Gabriel Bateman and Alexander DiPersia. Link to the original horror short is here. If this feature film is anything like the horror short, we are in for a real treat. The film is about “a young boy and his estranged sister who are confronted by an evil entity that only appears when the lights are out.”
Director Paul Feig just revealed the new uniform for the new Ghostbusters (2016) movie. Great… but I want to see the proton pack. I imagine we will see the “girls” suit up and “take care of business” real soon. Really stoked to see how this new film develops and hopefully we should get a cameo at least of the original Ghostbuster… RIP Harold Ramis. They are currently filming in New York City with Boston photography expected. Ghostbusters releases in movie theaters on July 22, 2015. Cast in Ghostbusters are Chris Hemsworth, Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones.
