While Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures struggle to keep the story and visuals under wraps, the licensing of Godzilla has caused a few headaches.
Today images hit Twitter of a brand new giant-sized Godzilla toy, which carried a description of the lizard king’s origin, as well as his motive for returning for the depths of the ocean!
beware of series spoilers, although I think it’s pretty cool to know now… READ MORE

Blackpowder Games, an indie developer made up of former Monolith devs (FEAR, Condemned), has confirmed that its next project, the eerie, atmospheric shooter Betrayer is complete and will be transitioning out of Steam Early Access on March 24th. When the game releases, its price will go up to $19.99, so if you’re interested in it — maybe our playthrough piqued your interest — Betrayer will remain at $14.99 until then.
It’s Friday and spring is hopefully right around the corner. I guess that’s why I’m feeling like I need a bit more nature in my life. Y’know, trees that have leaves on them. Grass that I can actually see (damn snow) and walk on. Wildlife not shivering their tails off. That kinda stuff! Then I can walk around without 12 layers of clothing. I can breathe through my nose without the condensation freezing (no joke, that’s happened many times this winter). I can walk around my neighborhood without slipping and breaking my ass at every possible turn.
What I don’t plan on doing is taking nature and sniffing it like a drug. I also don’t plan on taking randomly found mushrooms and using them to turn into a burly, sun-murdering lumberjack. But that’s precisely what Mastodon are up to in their “Curl Of The Burl” music video, which is this week’s “Twisted Music Video Of The Week”!

Having its World Premiere this weekend at the SXSW Film Festival is Dark Sky Films’ Starry Eyes, from directors Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kolsch.
Indiewire landed the film’s festival poster, which takes the retro approach.
In it, “In the city of dreams, a desperate actress will do whatever it takes for the role of a lifetime… no matter what the cost.“
Alexandra Essoe, Amanda Fuller, Fabianne Therese, Noah Segan, Pat Healy and Shane Coffey star. READ MORE

Check out the first clip in which Johansson seduces her way into someone’s life… READ MORE
Writer-director Mike Flanagan is fucking awesome. The dude has propelled himself into directing stardom after years of television by directing the indie Absentia and absolutely fantastic Oculus, in theaters April 11 via Relativity. What I like about Flanagan is that, unlike a lot of aspiring filmmakers out there, he continued to work – and work hard. His IMDB shows an impressive amount of work, while also finding time to get short films in his schedule – one of which translated into him getting Oculus funded (life lesson, guys!).
I’m truly excited to see him break out, and hope that his next endeavor is as scary as Oculus. Taking cues from Flatliners, Flanagan and Intrepid Pictures’ Trevor Macy are reteaming on the supernatural thriller Diver, setting a summer production start, reports Deadline.
“Diver revolves around a secret project based in New Orleans that involves a team sent to enter the minds of the recently dead to experience their final memories in order to solve the most heinous crimes. When the Divers breach the barrier between the living and the dead, they must contend with the supernatural force they unleash.”
Flanagan will direct a script by Diane Ademu-John and Carter Blanchard with revisions by Flanagan and writing partner Jeff Howard. Macy will produce the film, with Marc D. Evans, Asha Kurian, and Julie Wilke also serving in various producing capacities. READ MORE
Easily one of my favorite horror films of the year, Jim Jarmusch’s Only Lovers Left Alive isn’t for everyone. While Ryan Daley wasn’t the biggest of fans, I found my self obsessing over the film’s beautiful simplicity, extraordinary acting (Tilda Swanson and Tom Hiddleston are out of this world), and real-life story structure. While it’s a bit “hipster,” it’s extremely powerful storytelling with strongly developed characters. Also featuring astounding sound design and score, this is a must-see in theaters…
The pic “tells the tale of two fragile and sensitive vampires, Adam (Hiddleston) and Eve (Swinton), who have been lovers for centuries. Both are cultured intellectuals with an all-embracing passion for music, literature and science, who have evolved to a level where they no longer kill for sustenance, but still retain their innate wildness.”
Sony Pictures has finally released an official U.S. trailer that’s pretty representational of what you’ll see in theaters April 11. Enjoy an O-negative ice pop while you watch the trailer!
John Hurt, Mia Wasikowska and Anton Yelchin also star. READ MORE
William Eubank’s dark and violent sci-fi film The Signal will be released this summer. Per THR, Focus Features planning on an initial release on June 13th and will then expand the film on June 20th and June 27th.
Starring “Bates Motel’s” Olivia Cooke and “Hannibal’s” Laurence Fishburne, the pic is about group of college students are lured to the middle of the desert by a hacker.
“What begins as a techno-thriller about the pursuit of an elusive computer hacker takes a surprising turn into hardcore sci-fi territory,” says our own Ryan Daley in his Sundance review. “There’s also a surprisingly moving human element, and Eubank skillfully manipulates the tone to achieve the best possible result.”
Haunting theaters April 25, the following motion posters for The Quiet Ones burns through film.
From the producers behind Let Me In and The Woman in Black, “A university student (Sam Claflin) and some classmates are recruited to carry out a private experiment — to create a poltergeist. Their subject: an alluring, but dangerously disturbed young woman (Olivia Cooke). Their quest: to explore the dark energy that her damaged psyche might manifest. As the experiment unravels along with their sanity, the rogue PHD students are soon confronted with a terrifying reality: they have triggered an unspeakable force with a power beyond all explanation.” READ MORE
The latest episode in Telltale’s The Walking Dead: The Game arrived on iOS today. It’s also available on PC, Xbox 360, and PS3, with the Vita version coming sometime at the end of the month. In my review of the episode, titled A House Divided, I found it to be a solid follow-up to the second season’s debut that focuses more on the “intimate moments,” and while it lulls a bit, it’s helped by an “omnipresent feeling of dread.”
Each episode costs $4.99 individually or you can get them all as they become available at $24.99 with the season pass.
Matt Miner is an avid animal rights activist and he makes no attempt to hide it. He’s passionate, driven, and outspoken. He brings these traits into “Liberator/Earth Crisis: Salvation of Innocents” #1 to tell a new story in the battle against animal horror. It follows a new beginning for vigilante justice in the world of animal testing. It’s grisly, frightening, and enlightening. Miner doesn’t shy away from the real terrors of the world, and in turn gives us a comic with a powerful call to action. READ MORE
Ghost Rider has always been one of my favorite heroes. I think I gravitated toward him as a child because he stood out as the resident badass of the Marvel Universe. Yet, his stories have always been somewhat lackluster as of late and hasn’t had the series he so rightly deserves. Well in less than two weeks the Rider will be reborn. the first issue hasn’t hit yet but we’ve already got a preview of issue two. Hit the jump for the full look! READ MORE
It’s been a while since I last had Lollipop Chainsaw on the mind. Suda 51′s quirky and colorful zombie chainsaw ‘em up wasn’t as memorable as I would’ve liked, but it was still a funny and mostly enjoyable game that definitely deserves a sequel. We may be one step closer to seeing such a thing happen, now that the game has sold over a million copies. The news comes from developer Grasshopper Manufacture’s Twitter page, where it was followed by a celebratory “Woot Woot!”
If you haven’t played the game, I called it as sweet as it is sour in my review. As much as I enjoy the idea of another Lollipop Chainsaw, Shadows of the Damned deserves it more. How about you — w Suda 51 game would you like to see more of?

Southern metal band Anti-Mortem is gearing up for the release of their upcoming debut album New Southern, which hits streets on April 29th via Nuclear Blast Records. To celebrate this upcoming release, the band has premiered the album artwork, which was done by Brent Elliott White (Job For A Cowboy, Trivium). The artwork depicts Death riding a skeletal horse while holding a scythe crafted from bone riding towards two Civil War soldiers. It’s pretty badass.
Head on down to see the album art, the band’s video for “100% Pure American Rage”, and their tour dates where they will be supporting Texas Hippie Coalition. READ MORE
Konami has confirmed that the rumored Revelations DLC for the newly released Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is indeed a real thing, and it’s coming later this month. As suspected, the expansion will feature a playable Alucard, Dracula’s son, and his arsenal of powers that includes the ability to transform into a bat or a wolf — hopefully not for any stealth-based missions — and time manipulation.
I found Lords of Shadow 2 to be more than a little disappointing in my review. Maybe MercurySteam can remedy some of the base game’s issues with this upcoming expansion.
But seriously, no stealth missions.
In a video post on their Instagram page, Nine Inch Nails seem to be announcing that new tour dates will be scheduled and revealed. The video shows the classic NIN logo followed by flashes of locations around the world, which suggest that the Asia/Australia/Latin America/Europe tour mentioned on their Facebook cover photo will be getting dates soon. The band will be touring in support of last year’s Hesitation Marks.
You can watch a near 80 minute live performance of NIN from last year’s “Tension” tour below. READ MORE
