Metal legends Metallica have announced that their upcoming 3D film will be titled Metallica Through The Never and will be released theatrically on Aug. 9th. The film was written and directed by Nimród Antal (Kontroll, Predators) and stars Dane DeHaan (Chronicle).
The story follows DeHaan as he “…plays a young band crew member who is sent out on an urgent mission while the band is playing a rousing live set in front of a sold-out crowd and unexpectedly finds his world turned completely upside down.”
The film will be the first new release from Picturehouse after their reopening with founder Bob Berney at the helm.

In Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie, a young Victor conducts a science experiment to bring his beloved dog Sparky back to life, only to face unintended, sometimes monstrous, consequences. In theaters October 5, 2012 from Walt Disney Pictures, we’ve got two new clips. One from IGN entitled “A Bigger Problem” that opens up the scope of the action as well as another new one entitled “Edgar Knows” in which Victor’s hunchbacked friend calls him out.
The voice cast includes four actors who worked with Burton on previous films: Winona Ryder (Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands), Catherine O’Hara (Beetlejuice, The Nightmare Before Christmas), Martin Short (Mars Attacks!) and Martin Landau (Ed Wood, Sleepy Hollow), while Charlie Tahan and Atticus Shaffer were later added. Over 200 puppets and sets were created for the film, and that several of the character names—Victor, Elsa Van Helsing, Edgar “E” Gore and Mr. Burgermeister— were inspired by classic horror films.
“A heartwarming tale about a boy and his dog. After unexpectedly losing his beloved dog Sparky, young Victor harnesses the power of science to bring his best friend back to life—with just a few minor adjustments. He tries to hide his home-sewn creation, but when Sparky gets out, Victor’s fellow students, teachers and the entire town all learn that getting a new “leash on life” can be monstrous.
A stop-motion animated film, ‘Frankenweenie’ will be filmed in black and white and rendered in 3D, which will elevate the classic style to a whole new experience.” READ MORE
It’s difficult to believe Doom 3 came out eight years ago, but the fact that it’s already been long enough to warrant a remastered edition makes me feel old. It might not have been the revolutionary horror game many fans expected it to be, an expectation accumulated over the many, many years fans had to wait for it, but it was still an excellent action/horror game. Now Doom 3 is getting the remastered treatment with the BFG Edition, due this fall for the PS3 and Xbox 360. It will include some brand new levels, the Resurrection of Evil expansion, Doom 1 and 2, 3D support, 5.1 surround sound, and the ability to have a flashlight and a gun out at the same time. How sad is it that out of all those new features, the promise of a flashlight with all my guns is the one I’m most looking forward to? Head past the jump for the debut trailer! READ MORE
*Just kidding. I’m not sure there was ever any doubt what Dimension Films’ Piranha 3DD would be rated. I suppose there was slight a chance there’d be an ‘unrated’ version, but I just imagined that was what the eventual DVD/Blu cut would be. Dimension, like any other distributor, needs to get paid. And the only way to do that is with an “R” (a “PG13″ would be the antithesis of this franchise).
Piranha 3DD has been rated R for “Sequences of strong bloody horror violence and gore, graphic nudity, sexual content, language and some drug use.”
The John Gulagar-directed sequel was penned by Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan. Danielle Panabaker, Matt Bush, Chris Zylka, David Koechner, Meagan Tandy, Paul James Jordan, Jean-Luc Bilodeau, Hector Jimenez, Adrian Martinez, Clu Gulager, Gary Busey, Katrina Bowden, Christopher Lloyd, Ving Rhames, Paul Scheer and David Hasselhoff all star.
Hit the jump to take a look at the VERY R-Rated trailer. READ MORE
We knew it would be a simultaneous theatrical and VOD release, but we didn’t know when. Now we do. Dimension Films’ Piranha 3DD will be released on June 1st. Just in time for summer water park fun.
“There’s something in the water… again. And this time no one is safe from the flesh eating fish as they sink their razor sharp teeth into the visitors of the best summer attraction, The Big Wet Water Park.”
Piranha 3DD reteams Feast director John Gulagar with writers Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan. Danielle Panabaker, Matt Bush, Chris Zylka, David Koechner, Meagan Tandy, Paul James Jordan, Jean-Luc Bilodeau, Hector Jimenez, Adrian Martinez, Clu Gulager, Gary Busey, Katrina Bowden, Christopher Lloyd, Ving Rhames, Paul Scheer and David Hasselhoff all star.
You’ve already seen the trailer, but that won’t stop me from including it after the jump. READ MORE
In House Of The Dead: Overkill Extended Cut you and one of your creepy perverted friends will be making your way through a zombie infested strip club. Awwwwww yeaaaaahhh. You also won’t be playing as Level G and Wash, but taking on the roles of Varla Guns and her stripper friend Candy. At this point the game can’t really get any cooler; and it’s got to be better than the movie Zombie Strippers.
House Of The Dead: Overkill Extended Cut will be coming out exclusively for the Playstation 3/PS Move on October 25th. Screens past the break. READ MORE
It’s only natural that HOTODEC would get re-released on the Playstation Move. In the same vein as Dead Space: Extraction, it would seem like we are probably going to see a lot more games like this that were Wiisclusives released for the Move. Clearly because they can make the games look much better, and they can make some extra cash. Check out the trailer from Comic-con below.
House Of The Dead: Overkill Extended Cut will be out in full HD and 3D on October 25th for the Playstation Move. READ MORE
Debate it all you want, the Wii just can’t pump out the gorgeous graphics that the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 can. That’s why House Of The Dead: Overkill is going to look way better on the Playstation 3 then it ever did on the Wii. However, that’s no necessarily a good thing. One thing that made Overkill so awesome is the way it looked. Shitty and grainy and very old skool.
I guess only time will tell. Head past the break for some new House Of The Dead: Overkill Extended Cut screens. Also past the break is a list of the PS3 exclusive game content included with the game. Overkill will be out for the Playstation 3/Move on October 25th. READ MORE
House Of The Dead: Overkill has been a Wii only title until now. The Playstation 3 is stepping into the Wii’s territory since the release of the PS Move. And that rules because we can get awesome games like Dead Space Extraction and the just announced House Of The Dead: Overkill Extended Cut on the Playstation 3. The Overkill Extended Cut will be in full HD and 3D and compatible with the Playstation Move.
The game will include all 7 original stages re-mastered and 2 all new stages. The game will also have new game modes and trophy support. Past the break for screens. House Of The Dead: Overkill Extended Cut will be out October 25th for the Playstation 3. READ MORE
Gearing up for a May 13 release, Screen Gems released a new clip from their post-apocalyptic TokyoPop adapatation, Priest. In the snippet, Maggie Q’s warrior priestess character takes on a pack of desert hoodlums by throwing punches, blades and motorcycles.
Priest is set in an alternate world, ravaged by centuries of war between men and vampires. The story revolves around a legendary Warrior Priest (Paul Bettany) from the last Vampire War who now lives in obscurity among the other downtrodden human inhabitants in walled-in dystopian cities ruled by the Church. When his niece (Lily Collins) is abducted by a murderous pack of vampires, Priest breaks his sacred vows to venture out on an obsessive quest to find her before they turn her into one of them. He is joined on his crusade by his niece’s boyfriend (Cam Gigandet), a trigger-fingered young wasteland sheriff, and a former Warrior Priestess (Maggie Q) who possesses otherworldly fighting skills.
Excited for Patrick Lussier and Todd Farmer’s Drive Angry 3D? I’ve already seen one bad Nic Cage toupee this year, and I’m damn excited to see another one in 3D – seriously though, Cage is insane(ly entertaining). Mr. D loved the flick when he saw it a few weeks back (review), and if you live in the Orlando area, B-D has got your chance to see it before it hits theatres on February 25. The screening is taking place on Thursday, February 24 at 9PM at Regal Winter Park (510 N. Orlando Ave.). To win one pass (good for two people each), all you have to do is show up at 7:30 PM in front of the theatre, where we’ll be on hand to give out passes on a first-come, first-served basis. Come check out Amber Heard in 3D with us!
In what was probably the least expected thing to happen at AFM (especially after all the non-news over the past few years) , Silent Hill: Revelation 3D was announced, with Michael J Bassett (Solomon Kane) in the director’s chair. Taking the reigns for the series from Christophe Gans (Brotherhood Of The Wolf), he also took over writing duties, which Roger Avery had previously been rumored as doing. Given that he hasn’t been having the best of times lately, it really isn’t too surprising. The new helmer recently sat down with Empire, giving some new info on his 3D sequel to the video game adaptation.
I don’t think anyone is ever going to accuse My Bloody Valentine 3D of being a “good” movie, but it’s certainly fun and worth watching multiple times with a room full of friends and some beer. And, out of all the modern day 3D horror I’ve seen, it used the gimmick best, flinging body parts and blood at the screen with gleeful abandon. One Way Trip 3D, a German slasher currently in production, looks to follow suit; the ordinary and cliche plot certainly warrants the use of extensive, gimmicky 3D in order to make it fun. A few stills made their way to the net today via the film’s Facebook page, featuring lots of fire and digit amputation. Here’s hoping the slasher celebrates the stupidity of its formula through over-the-top 3D and humor, rather than become something straight-faced and pointless like Night Of The Living Dead 3D – Yikes!
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has announced DVD ($28.95), Blu-ray ($34.95), and Blu-ray 3D ($39.95) editions of Resident Evil: Afterlife for December 28th. Extras on the DVD will include a filmmaker commentary, and 2 featurettes (“Band of Survivors: Casting Afterlife”, “Fighting Back: The Action of Afterlife”). The Blu-ray releases will include all that, along with deleted and extended scenes, additional featurettes (“Back Under the Umbrella: Directing Afterlife”, “Undead Dimension: Resident Evil in 3D”, “Vision of the Apocalypse: The Design of Afterlife”, “New Blood: The Undead of Afterlife”, “Pwning the Undead: Gamers of the Afterlife”), and outtakes.
The end (or is it?) of horror’s most profitable franchise is mere days away, and in 3D no less. Lionsgate is holding Fan Appreciation Nights for Saw 3D around the country, and we’ve already given away passes to screenings in Atlanta, Orlando, and Chicago, but the studio provided us with eight more (good for one person each) for Orlando, taking place at another theatre. The screening takes place tomorrow night at 10:15 PM at Regal Winter Park (510 North Orlando Avenue, Winter Park, FL), and I’ll be on hand to give out SAW 3D engraved glasses, along with some other cool swag. To win, all you have to do is email us at [email protected] with “HE WAS ALIVE THE WHOLE TIME” in the subject line, along with your name and why you’re a Saw fan. Winners will be notified in the AM.
It’s good to be a horror fan, or what I like to affectionately refer to as Thrill Enthusiasts. Someone might hear that term for the first time and think of something else, since at first a Thrill Enthusiast sounds like someone who enjoys getting their crazy on by tempting death through various scenarios like skydiving, spelunking, or base jumping. They would be incorrect in that assumption, unless you’re the rare type of individual who enjoys horror media and terrifying, Oh-God-Please-Please-Don’t-Fail-Mr.-Parachute activities. If you happen to fall under the latter category I commend you sir (or ma’am), as you are a borderline superhero.
But I digress, something I find myself doing more and more often lately. It’s almost gotten to the point where I need to hire someone to follow me with a buzzer, monitoring my level of alertness and… on-topic-ness. Of course, paying someone to do such a task would be a problem, and finding a talented soul with the patience to really follow through would most likely prove even more difficult. Wait, I just did it again. Just click the Read More button before my compulsive rambling gets the better of me. READ MORE
Before everyone reading this gets too excited, the Batman: Arkham Asylum Game Of The Year Edition was announced for Europe and other PAL territories only. You’ll be able to get it on March 26th, and it will include the 6 previously downloadable challenge maps on the game disc, and new technology that will allow you to play the game in 3D. 3D!? Why is America getting jacked on the 3D action?!
Just kidding. Don’t get your thongs in a bunch, May 11th we will be getting the game, just a couple weeks later. The game will include 3D glasses, because otherwise trying to play the game in 3D would suck. Some screens past the break. READ MORE
