The newest international poster for Ridley Scott’s Prometheus brings some old school epic-ness to their campaign. A little 80′s? Maybe. but it’s awesome! However – it might contain a spoiler. Most of the previews show the Space Jockey ship crashing back down to the planet (LV-426?), but this poster might show how it crashes – and it has dire implications for our protagonists. Then again, it could be a metaphor for the gist of the film’s conflict.
“With ‘Prometheus,’ Scott 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.

He is currently the only suspect in a murder case, his trial is about to begin and the only witness who could save him has disappeared without trace. Marcos discovers something much more sinister is behind all this. Someone has been plotting this revenge for a long time and is planning to see it out until the bitter end…”

Going to Cannes this week is the comedy thriller Bad Kids Go To Hell, based on a graphic novel by Matthew Spradlin. In the book, “A construction crew unearths a primal, supernatural force when they break ground for a new, commemorative library for Crestview Academy, a prestigious Midwestern prep-school and home to the spoiled offspring of the city’s social elite. Three years later, six of Crestview’s richest (and hottest) students are brought together early one Saturday for detention inside the newly completed library. Bored, the kids talk about their school’s infamous “dark presence,” and goad one another into a half-hearted seance. However, the joke turns deadly when they rouse an angry spirit, and start to die, one-by-one, in horrible accidents! Yet, as the kids drop like flies, are the murders really the work of an evil phantom, or has one of these six spoiled brats secretly conspired to bring them all together for detention in order to “level” the social playing field and do away with the competition?”
Judd Nelson, Amanda Alch, Marc Donato, Augie Duke, Roger Edwards, Ali Faulkner, Cameron Deane Stewart and Ben Browder all star. Spradlin directed and co-wrote the screenplay with Barry Wernick.

Fire in the Sky director Rob Lieberman’s latest, The Tortured, becomes available on VOD, XBOX, iTunes, Sony Playstation, Amazon, and Sundance Now on May 11 via IFC Films and will open in NY Theaters on Friday, June 15th. If you click on the title, you’ll see that Mr. Disgusting wasn’t exactly a fan – but you can check out the new trailer and decide for yourself if it’s worth your time.
Starring Erika Christensen, Bill Moseley, Jesse Metcalfe, Fulvio Cecere, Alfonso Quijada, Chelah Horsdal, Thomas Greenwood, “The perfect marriage of Craig (Metcalfe) and Elise Landry (Christensen) is suddenly shattered when their young son is abducted and murdered. When the killer (Moseley) is brought to trial, he manages to plea bargain his way to a lighter sentence. Utterly outraged by this miscarriage of justice, the grieving parents decide to take matters into their own hands. They capture the murderer, imprison him and subject him to the same monstrous acts he perpetrated upon their defenseless child. The unforeseen consequences, however, challenge their ideas of vengeance, justice and the true nature of evil.”

The Rasmussen Brothers (aka Shawn and Michael Rasmussen) are best known for writing John Carpenter’s psychiatric hospital thriller The Ward. Well, they must like those clinical environments because that’s more or less where they’re headed with Dark Feed. Although this time, the protagonists could not be more different.
In the film, “When a film crew moves into an abandoned psychiatric hospital with a shadowy past to shoot a low budget horror film, they get more than they bargained for. The late nights and lack of sleep begin to take a toll, and the longer this crew works, the more the leaky, wet building seems to be coming back to life, feeding off its new inhabitants.”
They’re headed to Cannes with the film, which was shot in New England on many of the same sets used in Shutter Island. You can follow the film on Facebook. Head inside for the trailer and the poster! READ MORE
UPDATE: As pointed out by reader “DJBlack1313″ and confirmed by Sony Pics, it’s not an official one-sheet.
Sony Screen Gems’ Resident Evil: Retribution, has debuted another quad style poster, courtesy of Cine 1. This one is more or less in keeping with what we’ve seen from the film, which is to say that it has a much wider scope than any of the other entries in the series thus far. This one features Alice superimposed above the city, those ever present planes in the air and of course her even more ever present gun… um… present.
In theaters September 21, “The Umbrella Corporation’s deadly T-virus continues to ravage the Earth, transforming the global population into legions of the flesh eating Undead. The human race’s last and only hope, ALICE (Milla Jovovich), awakens in the heart of Umbrella’s most clandestine operations facility and unveils more of her mysterious past as she delves further into the complex. Without a safe haven, Alice continues to hunt those responsible for the outbreak; a chase that takes her from Tokyo to New York, Washington, D.C. and Moscow, culminating in a mind-blowing revelation that will force her to rethink everything that she once thought to be true. Aided by newfound allies and familiar friends, Alice must fight to survive long enough to escape a hostile world on the brink of oblivion. The countdown has begun.”
Milla Jovovich, Michelle Rodriguez, Sienna Guillory, Kevin Durand, Shawn Roberts, Colin Salmon, Johann Urb, Boris Kodjoe and Li Bing Bing all star. Paul W.S. Anderson, who kicked off the franchise in 2002, directs once again. Head inside for the image! READ MORE
A few months back we debuted the a href=”http://bloody-disgusting.com/news/28571/first-imagery-from-indie-carnieville/”>first images from CarnieVille and now we have a couple more stills along with a new poster for the film. Bonzo the Clown is about to perform for audiences in CarnieVille, written-directed-produced by Victor Mathieu and starring Brett Rickaby (The Crazies, Bereavement), Victor Miller (Friday the 13th) and Jeremy Jackson (“Baywatch”).
In the film, “After having witnessed her neighbor murder his own wife in his clown outfit, Corey has been dealing with coulrophobia (fear of clowns) ever since she was a child. On Halloween night, her boyfriend and his friends decide to help her overcome her phobia of clowns by taking her to a nearby carnival. However, they soon discover that the price of admission is their lives.”

[REC]3 Genesis finds Paco Plaza largely dispensing with the found footage aesthetic of the series and going much broader. I still haven’t seen the film, and while Mr. Disgusting thinks it falls a hair or two short of the prior two entries, I’m not too worried. All of the teasers, trailers and images actually have me kind of confident that I’ll like this thing. I’m not a die-hard fan of the series so maybe I’m just responding positively to the new aesthetic. This beautiful high-res poster kind of makes my point for me.
In the film, “Koldo and Clara are about to celebrate the most important day of their lives: their wedding. Everything appears to be running smoothly and the bride and groom and their families are enjoying a wonderful day; that is until some of the guests start showing signs of a strange illness. Before they know what’s happening, the bride and groom find themselves in the middle of a hellish ordeal, as an uncontrollable torrent of violence is unleashed on the wedding. Amidst the chaos, Koldo and Clara become separated and begin a desperate search for one another. What started off as an idyllic day quickly descends into a nightmare of the worst kind…”

Alcon Entertainment and Warner Bros. Pictures are gearing up to release Chernobyl Diaries, the Oren Peli (Paranormal Activity) and Brian Witten-produced horror survival film, and we now have a look at a much improved one-sheet for the film. This art actually exudes some menace.
In the film, “A group of friends become stranded in an eerie and desolate city. Years before in the aftermath of a nuclear disaster, nature has begun to reclaim everything. As the sun sets on this radioactive ghost town, inhuman cries cut through the night air. It seems they are not alone.”
Chernobyl Diaries is directed by Brad Parker, and stars Jonathan Sadowski, Devin Kelley, Jesse McCartney, Olivia Taylor Dudley, Nathan Phillips, Ingrid Bolso Berdal and Dimitri Diatchenko. It opens on May 25th.

Formerly Tape 407, IFC Midnight recently announced an April 27 IFC Midnight Cable VOD, Digital Outlets (SundanceNOW, iTunes, Amazon Streaming, XBOX Zune, Playstation Unlimited) and limited theatrical run for Area 407, director Dale Fabrigar’s found footage horror flick starring Abigail Schrader, Samantha Lester, James Lyons, Melanie Lyons, Brendan Patrick Connor, Ken Garcia, Samantha Sloyan, Everette Wallin and Jude Gerard Pres. The trailer and stills were recently added and last week we brought you an exclusive poster debut. Today we have a look at a new poster for the film, one that peels back the metal and shows you more wreckage from the crash. Along with some lizard eyes.
“After taking off on a flight from New York to Los Angeles on New Years Eve, the passengers of Flight 37A are soon sent into shock and alarm as the plane experiences severe turbulence. The relentless weather attack causes panic and terror amongst the passengers until the plane ultimately crashes in a remote government-testing reserve, AREA 407. Through footage captured by two teenage sisters, the accident and crash lead to further events that should not be viewed by the faint of heart. As they continue to film, it becomes apparent that the remaining survivors of Flight 37A may not survive the night.”

Some promo materials for Summit Entertainment’s Sinister (review) are beginning to emerge at this year’s Cinemacon and this creepy banner-style poster smears more blood across its landscape than you might expect. I remember when that much blood would get a poster rejected by the MPAA, but I suppose that’s no longer the case. In any case, it’s pretty nifty.
Directed by The Exorcism of Emily Rose‘s Scott Derrickson, the film stars Ethan Hawke, James Ranson, and Juliet Rylance. Penned by Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill, “the story follows a journalist who moves his family into a house where another family was murdered. After moving in, he uncovers found footage that leads to clues about the murders.”
Sinister hits theaters October 5th, 2012. The poster was first uncovered via Collider. READ MORE
Opening simultaneously on VOD and in limited theaters in Dimension Films’ Piranha 3DD, the John Gulager-directed sequel to Alex Aja’s bloody remake that reteams him with Feast writers Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton. What’s interesting is that there’s this perception that Dimension is somehow dumping the film, but they’ve released numerous trailers, stills, and posters. Maybe they’re just super confident in the film and want to use it to break in this new mixed distribution plan? Anyway, another poster hit today. And it’s about what you’d expect. Busty.
In the film, “After the terror unleashed on Lake Victoria in ‘Piranha 3D,’ the pre-historic school of blood thirsty piranhas are back. This time, no one is safe from the flesh eating fish as they sink their razor sharp teeth into the visitors of summer’s best attraction, The Big Wet Water Park. Christopher Lloyd reprises his role as the eccentric piranha expert with survivor Paul Scheer and a partially devoured Ving Rhames back for more fish frenzy. David Hasselhoff trades in the sandy beaches of “Baywatch” to be a celebrity lifeguard at the racy water park.”
Piranha 3DD stars Gary Busey, Katrina Bowden, Danielle Panabaker, Matt Bush, Chris Zylka and David Koechner. It surfaces at theaters and VOD on June 1st. Head inside to check out the new poster (we’ll update when it goes hi-res), I’ve also included the prior two for posterity’s sake. READ MORE
In theaters May 18, we’ve just now added a pretty cool motion poster for Image Entertainment’s Lovely Molly (review), the haunting new horror flick from Blair Witch co-director Eduardo Sanchez (exclusive new interview). While most motion posters are completely pointless, they actually took some time to maker this one cool.
“When newlywed Molly Reynolds returns to her long-abandoned family home, frightful reminders of a nightmarish childhood begin seeping into her new life. She soon begins an inexorable descent into evil that blurs the lines between psychosis and possession.”
The film premiered at TIFF where Image acquired the pic. Gretchen Lodge, Johnny Lewis and Alexandra Holden all star. READ MORE
A brand new clip from The Cabin In The Woods just hit over at IGN and it’s a great homage/send-up of that old “creepy local” routine we get in so many horror movies. This guy’s a little more assertive than Friday The 13th‘s Crazy Ralph, but his plot function seems to be the same. The clip appropriately refers to him as “the harbinger”.
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. Chris Hemsworth, Richard Jenkins, Bradley Whitford, Kristen Connolly, Anna Hutchison, Fran Kranz, Jesse Williams and Brian White all star.

At this point you guys know exactly how I feel about The Cabin In The Woods, so it’s no surprise that I jumped at the recent opportunity to host a screening of the film in St. Louis Park, Minneapolis. The idea was to show the film to a group of Bloody-Disgusting readers (along with some other guests) and conduct a Q&A with its co-writer and director Drew Goddard.
I have to admit I was a little nervous about the how the audience would receive the film. Of course I love Cabin and everybody I know who has seen the film loves it. But that basically means a bunch of film critics in LA, I was curious how it would play to a group of horror fans in the middle of the country.
Any concerns I had were assuaged just moments in, when the crowd went bananas for the film’s opening scene. A moment that actually has nothing to even do with horror, they were just responding to the quality of the film itself (and its awesome title card). What followed was a screening that could legitimately be described as “raucous”, which is a word I usually avoid using in conjunction with anything.
The Q&A with Drew Goddard was conducted with an audience that had just seen the film and thus is too spoiler-heavy to reprint at the moment. I’ve included a few quotes here but I’ll be adding some of the best bits to the post-release interview that I already have waiting for you guys.

Filipino director Yam Laranas’ (Sigaw, The Echo) The Road just got a little bit longer and a lot eerier with the release of these four striking new stills. They don’t contain the gore we saw in our last look at the film, but they certainly convey a lot of atmosphere.
“A twelve year old cold case is reopened when three teens are missing in an abandoned road. In the course of the investigation, deeper and gruesome stories of abduction and murders are discovered. After more than two decades, the secrets of the haunted road may finally be revealed.”
Carmina Villarroel, Marvin, Agustin, TJ Trinidad, Rhian Ramos and Barbie Forteza all star. The film features music and Soundcscapes by Johan Söderqvist (Let The Right One In). The Road opens May 11 from Freestyle. It will also arrive day and date across digital platforms including YouTube, iTunes, Amazon, Netflix and Hulu Plus.

Written and directed by Miguel Urrutia, and starring Luis Fernando Bohorquez and Andrea Montenegro, we’ve landed a sales poster and first details for Wake Up and Die.
“Clarissa wakes up early morning, naked with no idea where she is. She soon discovers that she is in Dorian ‘s bed, a complete stranger.

Surprisingly, Clarissa awakes again and realizes that her death is just the beginning…
Again and again and again, she re-awakes to what appears to be the same night.

Inside you’ll find a trio of new poster images for Michael Manasseri’s horror movie with a stinger, Sucker, which stars Danny Mooney, Monty Ban, Michael Manasseri and Kimberley Kates. It’s Spider-Man meets The Fly and looks cheesy awesome.

It turns out that years of exposure to nuclear radiation and rabid mosquito DNA don’t mix very well and Jim transforms into a half man-half mosquito, hell bent on revenge. Sucker… payback’s an itch.” READ MORE
*Updated with the film’s official one-sheet.
I absolutely hated Jennifer Lynch’s Hisss, which quietly snuck into Red Box’s across the Nation last October. It’s hard to pinpoint what went wrong, but there were some warning signs last January when it was reported that the flick, starring Mallika Sherawat as snake woman who can take on various forms, was taken away from Lynch in the editing stage.
The film sucks, and we know this, but that’s beyond the point. Apparently a film crew caught all of the behind-the-scenes drama on camera!
Penny Vozniak directs Despite the Gods, a documentary on Hiss set to premiere at the Canadian film festival Hot Docs this coming April.
The below trailer is 110% better than Hisss…
“ ‘Despite the Gods’ brings us behind the scenes on the set of Lynch’s Bollywood/Hollywood action film about a man-eating snake goddess. Out of her depth shooting on location with an Indian crew and two top Bollywood stars, Lynch turns her production into a vehicle for her own self-actualization, paying no regard to timeline, budget or reality. As the story in front of the camera derails, the story behind the camera explodes.”
We’ll let you know when it’s acquired for U.S. distro. READ MORE
Written and directed by Eric Williford, Natalie’s Lose Lose is a 95Forty Productions film that stars Danielle Adams, Natalie Victoria, Jose Rosete, Marian Liddel and Todd Houghton.

Want to know how much reporters in the UK enjoyed The Cabin in the Woods (review)? Below you’ll find the UK one-sheet jam-packed with critic quotes for the high concept slasher in theaters Friday, April 13.
Directed by Cloverfield writer Drew Goddard, and penned by “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”‘s Joss Whedon, Lionsgate’s R-rated slaher follows “A group of friends at a cabin retreat scratch the surface of something so massive and horrific that they can only begin to fathom it as time quickly runs out. If you think you know this story, think again. ‘Cabin in the Woods’ is a mind-blowing horror film that turns the genre inside out.” READ MORE
The Cabin in the Woods (review) recently took the SXSW Film Festival by storm where it was selected as the Opening Night Feature Film for the entire festival. It’s funny, bloody, and scary. Our readers should eagerly lap this one up starting on Friday, April 13.
I was lucky enough to conduct several interviews with many of the creators and participants in the film. Up first are veteran actors Bradley Whitford and Richard Jenkins. I was only allowed 10 minutes, one-on-two with the gentlemen, and asked not to reveal any key plot points of the film. This made an organized and cohesive interview near impossible, but I think you can still get the gist of what’s going on.

To go along with these 9 bus shelter posters, Warner Bros. Pictures has released another set of 9 one-sheets that depict all of Dark Shadows‘ colorful characters, along with the tagline: “Strange is relative.” I guess Barnabas Collins, played by Johnny Depp, isn’t the only thing bizarre in this modern take on the old spooky soap that featured gothic horror staples like vampires, monsters, witches, werewolves, ghosts and zombies.
In theaters May 11 from director Tim Burton, “The story focuses on Barnabas Collins (Depp), who was transformed into a vampire by a jilted lover (Eva Green’s witch Angelique) way back in the 1700s and buried. He’s just been dug up, and attempts to reintegrate with his descendants, led by Michelle Pfeiffer’s Elizabeth and Jonny Lee Miller’s Roger – despite the fact that Angelique is still around and still not in a forgiving mood.” READ MORE
*Updated with the film’s official motion poster that transports Colin Farrell into Recall.
Moviegoers will begin their Recall experience on Sunday, April 1, as Columbia Pictures debuts the trailer for Underworld director Len Wiseman’s highly anticipated action thriller Total Recall during the NBA game between the Boston Celtics and the Miami Heat broadcast nationally on ABC. Following, an extended version will make it’s way online. Until then, check out the following video teaser!
Total Recall, in theaters August 3, 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) whom 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) – there is no one Quaid can trust, except possibly a rebel fighter (Jessica Biel) working for the head of the underground resistance (Bill Nighy). 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.” READ MORE
