:: Fantastic Four Goes Interstellar

The new Fantastic Four Trailer/Teaser is here.  It looks like the filmmakers took a lot of cues from both Zack Snyder and Chris Nolan.

I get a very big Man of Steel vibe with a lot of the shots such as the flowing fields of grain etc.  But this also feeds into that Interstellar

Trailer vibe with the slow piano and also farm fields and space and why can’t we just not rip off a movie that was only from a few months ago?

Well…at least it doesn’t look like the forced odd comedy of the last Fantastic Four.  But I just don’t feel that interested when a film is already

Ripping off another movie that’s not even out on DVD yet for its teaser.

Here’s  Interstellar

Here’s the new Fantastic Four Trailer

:: Shane is back…sort of…Call of Duty Havoc Trailer

Call of Duty has progressively upped it’s game (so to speak) with its zombie add ons.  The epic casting of Michael Rooker, Sarah Michelle Geller, Robert Englund, Danny Trejo and George Romero himself seemed unable to be topped.

Well…they may have topped it.

Welcome to Call of Duty’s latest installment Havoc for COD: Advanced Warfare.  John Malkovich, Bill Paxton, Rose McGowan, and Jon Bernthal join the crew (keeping with the theme of at least one bad ass female and a member of the Walking Dead cast.)

It just makes me wish more and more for a movie based on this because damn..this looks great.  I also love the in jokes.

The DLC will be available January 27th.

Rotten Rentals – NOES Limited Edition

Product Review

By Jessica Dwyer

Pre packed goodie boxes are all the rage right now. Starting with companies like Loot Crate and moving on to groups like Nerd Block, geeks of a certain age, like myself, love getting lots of cool little things for our money. They are usually packed with nostalgia and collectibles, and reminds us of our childhood.

What you don’t normally see is a lot of thought put into the box itself. Or managing to make that box into a work of art on its own, and making it one of the coolest parts of the package. Welcome to Rotten Rentals, the epitome of retro awesome in the land of horror goodie boxes.

Rotten Rentals was started by horror movie fans for horror movie fans and VHS lovers. What they’ve done is create a loot box that’s packed with cool pieces, but the coolest piece is the box itself. It’s an actual hard plastic VHS box with a specially designed sleeve insert that’s a unique piece of art based on a classic horror flick. Inside the box you find trading cards, a mini zombie figure, mini posters, a button, and random movie promo items. And if you’re really lucky, you’ll get a redemption card good for one really special item such an autographed movie poster.

The gang at Rotten Rentals packs a lot of cool into those VHS boxes inside and out. And the latest Rotten Rental is based on the slasher classic Nightmare on Elm Street. The design of a child starring into the maw of a horrifying Freddy Krueger comes from artist Patrick Carson Sparrow along with KC Canton and is the latest limited edition available.

:: That time Dale Cooper broke Twitter

It’s no secret to Twin Peaks fans that the series is returning to Showtime with a new 9 episode run starting up in current time.  But this picture posted on Twitter by MacLachlan and Lynch sort of broke us with the amount of awesome it contained and really brought home the reality that Dale Cooper is coming back.

Yes that’s the famous mug.  That’s the suit.  And that’s the man himself.  And he’s still looks as damn fine as the coffee tastes.  So far we’re still waiting to hear about who else from the original series but this looks great so far.  All 9 episodes will be co-written by Lynch and he’s also directing ALL of them.

Here’s the synopsis:

Golden Globe winner and Emmy® Award nominee Kyle MacLachlan will reprise his role as FBI Agent Dale Cooper when the critically-acclaimed, ground breaking television phenomenon TWIN PEAKS returns as a new limited series on SHOWTIME. Series creators and executive producers David Lynch and Mark Frost are on board to write and produce all nine episodes of the limited series. Four-time Oscar® nominee David Lynch will direct every episode. TWIN PEAKS will go into production in 2015 to air on the network in 2016, marking the 25th anniversary of when the program last aired. Set in the present day, TWIN PEAKS will continue the lore of the original series, providing long-awaited answers for the series’ passionate fan base. The announcement was made today by Showtime Networks President David Nevins and MacLachlan at the Television Critics Association’s annual Winter Press Tour. For viewers hoping to reminisce or for those discovering the series for the first time, SHOWTIME will re-air the first two seasons of TWIN PEAKS, in advance of the new episodes going on air in 2016.

:: Penny Dreadful Season 2 Trailer: Beyond the fiction?

pennydreadful__140604142808

Penny Dreadful’s Season 2 trailer wets our appetites with a healthy dose of blood.  And the thing that sticks out to me is that most of that blood is in a bathtub.  With a woman.  Bathing in it.  Like a certain Countess.  Could it be that Elizabeth Bathory singing and bathing in a tub of virgins blood?    If so that would be an interesting jump to history.  Or perhaps that’s Carmilla from Le Fanu’s story.

Either way, that’s an interesting and exciting addition to a show that’s already peppered with awesome characters.  We even get a glimpse of the soon to be resurrected Bride of Frankenstein.  Penny Dreadful’s 2nd season starts April 26th on Showtime.

:: iZombie Preview is here!!!

After months of waiting we finally get a first glimpse of iZombie, the CW series based on the comic book of the same name.  The series doesn’t start until March 17th, but it looks great.  And yes I’m still bitter about them moving it from Eugene to Seattle.   While the series doesn’t look to be keeping a 100 percent to the way the comic is set anyway, that’s par for the course.  But yes still bitter.

And look, David Anders as another zombie!  Wooo!!!

:: Chappie’s New Trailer: Yes I’m going to Cry.

I have no doubt Chappie is going to be the movie to rip out my heart this year and stomp on it with heavy metal feet.  This new trailer though shows even more of what we’ve expected from Blomkomp, beautiful visuals with a morality tale mixed in the sci-fi.  This is a return to the more District 9 type of story telling for him and I’m very excited to see it happen again.

Even if I’m going to bawl my eyes out like a lunatic.  I’m going to describe this now as Short Circuit had a three way with Real Steel and Robocop.
