Back in 1953 Life Magazine sent a photographer to the set of Creature From The Black Lagoon, and yet somehow these pics never made it to the actual magazine. But they’re fantastic, showing the technicolor vibrancy of the costume and really contextualizing the real world in which the illusion was constructed.
These color corrected copies come from Gammi Illustrations. In the film, “A scientific expedition searching for fossils along the Amazon River discover a prehistoric Gill-Man in the legendary Black Lagoon. The explorers capture the mysterious creature, but it breaks free. The Gill-Man returns to kidnap the lovely Kay, fiancée of one of the expedition, with whom it has fallen in love.”

So far everything we’ve seen from Columbia Pictures’ Len Wiseman (Underworld) directed Total Recall continues to remain consistent with my early thoughts that it looks okay, but doesn’t have the arch sense of irony or inventiveness that the 1990 Paul Verhoeven original had. These new stills continue that trend. It just looks polished, monochromatic and flat. Not necessarily bad, but not necessarily my thing either. Still, hard not to like Jessica Biel in the Rachel Ticotin part.
In theaters August 3, “ ‘Total Recall’ is an action thriller about reality and memory, inspired anew by the famous short story “We Can Remember It For You Wholesale” by Philip K. Dick. Welcome to Rekall, the company that can turn your dreams into real memories. For a factory worker named Douglas Quaid (Colin Farrell), even though he’s got a beautiful wife (Kate Beckinsale) who he loves, the mind-trip sounds like the perfect vacation from his frustrating life – real memories of life as a super-spy might be just what he needs. But when the procedure goes horribly wrong, Quaid becomes a hunted man. Finding himself on the run from the police – controlled by Chancellor Cohaagen (Bryan Cranston), the leader of the free world – Quaid teams up with a rebel fighter (Jessica Biel) to find the head of the underground resistance (Bill Nighy) and stop Cohaagen. The line between fantasy and reality gets blurred and the fate of his world hangs in the balance as Quaid discovers his true identity, his true love, and his true fate.”
Experimental-metal group The Bunny The Bear released their video “Lonely” this Wednesday which is off their upcoming album “The Stomach For It“. The albums comes out May 22 and will be released through Victory Records. Victory Records was nice enough to give us exclusive behind the scenes pictures from the video set which was filmed in Chicago. The video is definitely a nightmarish take on Alice In Wonderland. Check out the exclusive pictures as well as the video for “Lonely” past the break. Enjoy!
It’s no secret that while Ridley Scott’s Prometheus looks to be very much set in the Alien universe, it’s concerned the themes of exploration in general. Based on everything we’ve seen, the film seems very much to be about our need to see what’s out there. To that end, the new pics that hit today are very much in that vein. They even originated on a star map included in the new Prometheus Facebook app.
“Ridley Scott, director of ‘Alien’ and ‘Blade Runner,’ returns to the genre he helped define. With ‘Prometheus’, he creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.”
In theaters June 8, Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Sean Harris, Guy Pearce, Kate Dickie, Rafe Spall, Logan Marshall-Green, Benedict Wong, Emun Elliott, Ben Foster, Patrick Wilson all star.
The first stills from Lasse Hallstrom’s The Hypnotist have hit the web and while they look appropriately bleak, they also look pretty good.
Mikael Persbrandt (The Hobbit), Lena Olin (The Ninth Gate, Chocolat) and Tobias Zilliacus (Iris) all star in the film with Persbrandt playing Detective Linna who, “investigates a grisly triple homicide where the only survivor, a young boy, is too traumatized to testify. Linna convinces a famous psychologist, against his better judgment, to hypnotize the boy, setting off a terrifying chain of events.”
The film “is the first in a planned series of eight Joona Linna novels from Lars Kepler – a pseudonym for Swedish husband and wife authors Alexander Ahndoril and Alexandra Coelho Ahndoril. The third novel in the series was recently published in Sweden. Svensk and Sonet have optioned all eight books in the series for feature adaptations.”
The film’s theatrical bow in Sweden is planned for October, 2012. Hit the jump for the pics. READ MORE
I swear I was only planning on having two The Cabin In The Woods pieces today. After all, even though the film is premiering at the SXSW Film Festival tonight – it has another month to go before you will be able to see it. And I don’t want to burn you out. However, the tides of the internet have turned and these new official stills have come ashore. I’m damned if I give them to you and “overhype” the movie, and I’m damned if I don’t give them to you because it’s my job.
Anyway, as long as you guys keep in mind that The Cabin In The Woods just a great movie, but not the cure for cancer, I can’t see how you’ll be disappointed when it hits on Friday, April 13th. You can look forward to one part of a great Drew Goddard interview before the film’s release, and a more spoilery segment after.
In the meantime, at least we have a few more great pics. This means we can switch out the pic of Anna Hutchinson kissing that wolf every now and then!
Chris Hemsworth, Richard Jenkins, Bradley Whitford, Kristen Connolly, Anna Hutchison, Fran Kranz, Jesse Williams and Brian White all star.
We have some pics and the first official synopsis from the new Rustam Branaman film The Culling, which recently wrapped production in New Orleans.
““Five friends head out of town for road trip to a summer concert. A change of plans arise as they find a seven-year-old girl left alone in a parking, leaving them no choice but to find her parents. The little girl’s house is well out of the way and secluded. When they arrive at her house it’s quickly apparent they will have to stay for the night. What is not is foreseen is the evil nightmare they are about to encounter.”
Jeremy Sumpter (Frailty, Soul Surfer), Brett Davern (Case 219), Elizabeth DiPrinzio (The Devil Within), Chris Coy (Hostel: Part III, “True Blood”), Lindsey Godfrey (The House Bunny), Virginia Williams, Jonathan Schaech (ChromeSkull, Laid to Rest, Prom Night) and Harley Graham (Thor) all star.
