Terminator Will Be Back… In Several Years

Posted by Steve Barton on January 21, 2017

We’ll file this one under “Well, that would be nice” for now. Deadline is reporting that James Cameron, who regains certain rights to his prized creation The Terminator in 2019, is godfathering a new iteration of the film that might finally get it right in drawing a close in the battle between humans and Skynet.

Sources said that Cameron, whose copyright reversion happens 35 years after the release of the 1984 classic, is in early talks with Deadpool director and VFX wiz Tim Miller to direct a reboot and conclusion of one of cinema’s great science-fiction tales.

David Ellison, whose Skydance co-financed Terminator Genisys, is bankrolling an exploratory effort that includes engaging some top-flight science-fiction authors to find the movie creatively. Ellison still holds many Terminator rights, after his 2013 acquisition from sister and Annapurna principal Megan Ellison. She bought them in 2011 at Cannes for $20 million.

In reality anything could happen between now and 2019. I mean, within that time a machine could conceivably be sent back from the future to trigger the apoca… oh, wait.

Hint though… WE WANT THIS GUY!

NOT THIS GUY! Put that CG to work, guys! We know you can do it!

New Bates Motel Posters Promise a Truly Psycho Season 5

Posted by Debi Moore on January 21, 2017

“Bates Motel” looks to be going out with a bang if the newly released Season 5 artwork is any indication of the macabre finale ahead of us. IGN got the goods, and you can check out all four of the soon-to-be-returning A&E series’ S5 posters right here.

About “Bates Motel” Season 5:
The haunting fifth and final season of the critically acclaimed drama “Bates Motel,” from writers and executive producers Kerry Ehrin (“Friday Night Lights,” “Parenthood”) and Carlton Cuse (“Lost, “The Strain”), will premiere on Monday, February 20, at 10PM ET/PT on A&E. Fan favorite and Emmy-nominated actress Vera Farmiga returns for double duty as executive producer while also reprising her role as “Mother,” who is very much alive and well, but only in the twisted, complicated mind of “Norman Bates,” played by Freddie Highmore. In addition, eight-time Grammy Award winner and series super fan Rihanna checks in to play the role of “Marion Crane,” putting a newly reimagined and contemporary spin on the iconic character.

This contemporary prequel to the genre-defining film Psycho has provided fans with an intimate look into the unraveling of Norman Bates’ psyche throughout his teenage years. Fans watched as Norman’s dangerous transformation came full circle when he methodically murdered his beloved mother, Norma, in the final gut-wrenching episodes of Season Four.

Season Five of “Bates Motel” picks up almost two years later and finds Norman (Freddie Highmore), a grown man now, living a double life. Publicly he’s a happy and well-adjusted member of the White Pine Bay community, but at home Norman struggles; his violent blackouts continue to increase as Mother (Vera Farmiga) threatens to take over his mind completely. Meanwhile, Dylan Massett (Max Thierot) and Emma Decody (Olivia Cooke), since leaving White Pine Bay, have been living their lives blissfully unaware of Norma’s death and Norman’s full on descent into psychosis. Unfortunately for them, they will soon find themselves drawn back into Norman’s insanity, while a vengeful Alex Romero (Nestor Carbonell), who is currently incarcerated for perjury, hungers for a chance to destroy his stepson and avenge the murder of his one true love, Norma Bates.

New faces find their way to the Bates Motel this season to further complicate Norman’s life and threaten to unearth his dark secrets. Viewers will finally meet the iconic Marion Crane, played by Rihanna. In addition, a new couple in town, Madeleine Loomis, played by Isabelle McNally (“House of Cards”), and her husband, Sam Loomis, played by Austin Nichols (“The Walking Dead,” “Ray Donovan”), as well as Sheriff Dana Greene, played by Brooke Smith (“Grey’s Anatomy,” “Ray Donovan”), become entangled in Norman’s life, causing a chain of events that could blow the lid off his secret life. Lastly, fans will be greeted by familiar faces when Caleb Calhoun (Kenny Johnson) and Chick Hogan (Ryan Hurst) return with agendas of their own.

“Bates Motel” is produced by Universal Television for A&E Network. Kerry Ehrin and Carlton Cuse serve as executive producers for Cuse Productions and Kerry Ehrin Productions. Tucker Gates, Vera Farmiga, and Tom Szentgyorgyi also serve as executive producers on the series.

This Trio of Kong: Skull Island TV Spots Will Take Your Breath Away

Posted by Debi Moore on January 21, 2017

Regardless of what your feelings are about the peaceful transition of power we’re experiencing this weekend, you’re probably as sick of the wall-to-wall coverage of it as we are… which is why this crop of three new TV spots for Kong: Skull Island couldn’t have come at a better time!

All hail the true King… Kong!

Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures’ Kong: Skull Island reimagines the origin of the mythic Kong in a compelling, original adventure from director Jordan Vogt-Roberts.

Kong: Skull Island stars Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, Brie Larson, John Goodman, and John C. Reilly. The international ensemble cast also includes Tian Jing, Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell, John Ortiz, Thomas Mann, Shea Whigham, Toby Kebbell, and Eugene Cordero.

Vogt-Roberts directs the film from a screenplay by Max Borenstein, John Gatins, Dan Gilroy, and Derek Connolly. To fully immerse audiences in the mysterious Skull Island, the director, cast, and filmmaking team filmed across three continents over six months, capturing its primordial landscapes on Oahu, Hawaii; on Australia’s Gold Coast; and finally in Vietnam, where filming took place across multiple locations, some of which have never before been seen on film.

Kong: Skull Island will be released worldwide in 2D, 3D in select theaters, and IMAX beginning March 10, 2017, from Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

Synopsis:
A diverse team of scientists, soldiers, and adventurers unite to explore a mythical, uncharted island in the Pacific, as dangerous as it is beautiful. Cut off from everything they know, the team ventures into the domain of the mighty Kong, igniting the ultimate battle between man and nature. As their mission of discovery becomes one of survival, they must fight to escape a primal Eden in which humanity does not belong.

God Officially Cast in Lucifer!

Posted by Steve Barton on January 20, 2017

If you haven’t been watching “Lucifer” then you are missing out on a devilishly entertaining sliver of genre fare. While Lucy himself has been LOTS of fun, he’s soon going to be answering to God himself! EW reports that Timothy Omundson (pictured) has landed a guest-starring role on the titular series.

The “Psych” and “Galavant” alum will play God Johnson, a patient in a psychiatric hospital, who is charming, enigmatic, and oh yeah, he thinks he’s the one and only God Almighty.

But, as Lucifer (Tom Ellis) tries to prove him a phony, he comes to find that “God Johnson” seems to know things that only Lucifer’s true Father would know. Could he really be the Big Guy Upstairs? We’ll find out when Omundson appears in one episode slated for spring.

After two more original episodes, the Fox drama will go on hiatus until May 1. Lucifer airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET on Fox.

Marvel’s Epic Monsters Unleashed Event is Now Upon Us

Posted by David Gelmini on January 20, 2017

Superheroes and giant monsters are both incredibly hot commodities, so Marvel was wise to combine the two for their latest event series, Monsters Unleashed.

The core series, written by Cullen Bunn and illustrated by Steve McNiven, centers on teenager Kei Kawade, also known as Kid Kaiju, who has the ability to summon giant monsters into the real world simply by drawing them. Once the giant creatures emerge into our world, they’ll be doing battle with famous superheroes and laying cities to waste in the process.  There’ll be some familiar Marvel beasts in the series, including the dragon Fin Fang Foom, the hulking one-eyed swamp creature Monstrom, the half man/half ape Gorgilla, The Abominable Snowman, Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy, and more. We’ll also be seeing some badass original monsters too.

The core miniseries will last for five issues, the first of which has just been released, and you can buy it over on ComiXology. Then there’s an ongoing series which will also be called Monsters Unleashed, which will take place shortly afterwards and will continue the story of Kid Kaiju and his monsters.

Then there are the spinoffs. Yup, Doctor Strange, Spider-Man and Deadpool, the Hulk, the Champions, Guardians of the Galaxy, the Uncanny Inhmans, and the All New X-Men and the Avengers are all starring in their own Monsters Unleashed spinoff books which will tie into the main event. Click on the links to buy pre-order. It’s kind of strange that the X-Men were included, because Disney have been trying to erase all memory of the mutant superteam from the Marvel canon because their film rights are owned by 20th Century Fox, but that’s a story for another day.

Below I’ve complied a list of most of the covers released thus far from the various Monsters Unleashed comics, and there sure are some beauties among them.

Chuck Norris to Silent Rage Again on Blu-ray Later this Year

Posted by Foywonder on January 20, 2017

Imagine it’s 1982, you’re a Hollywood producer, and you’ve noticed how popular those Halloween movies are. So, you come up with a brilliant idea: what if Chuck Norris fought Michael Myers? Oh, to fill some time between kicking and killing, toss in some comic relief scenes involving the guy who played Flounder in Animal House.

A producer did just that, and Silent Rage was born.

Chuck Norris, six-time World Karate Champion, stars in his first suspense film as the tough, street-fighting sheriff of a small Texas town terrorized by a psychotic killer.

Sheriff Stevens (Norris) is faced with the dilemma of stopping the invincible murderer, made virtually indestructible through genetic engineering. A young group of researchers are responsible for developing the genetically altering serum, and the head of the research institute is determined to continue the experiments, regardless of the consequences.

Norris displays fighting brilliance as he single-handedly routs a dozen brutal bikers from a truck stop hangout, while revealing a warm and sexy side when he rekindles an old romance with Alison Halman (Toni Kalem), a researcher at the institute. Excitement, horror, and romance prevail as Norris combats the killer.

Michael Miller’s action thriller Silent Rage, co-starring Stephen Furst and the late Ron Silver, has long been a curious footnote in the annals of horror-dom and cult favorite amongst both Chuck Norris and slasher movie fans.

Mill Creek Entertainment has announced plans to release Silent Rage on Blu-ray later this year. That presents both good news and for fans of the film. On the negative side, given Mill Creek’s track record, you’ll probably get a decent print of the movie but will most likely be a barebones disc; and when I say barebones I mean there might not even be a menu. On the plus side, most of Mill Creek’s Blu-rays retail for about ten bucks.

Stay tuned for details, assuming there are any. Well, there will definitely be a release date. That might be about all there it to write about.

Oh, Mill Creek also announced they’ll also be releasing a Blu-ray of the campy 1989 Rutger Hauer visually-impaired swordsman flick Blind Fury. A win-win for cult movie lovers.
