Set for a quickly-approaching release date of August 12, New Line’s Final Destination 5 3D continues the long-running franchise with a whole new cast of characters to be sliced, diced and generally mangled by that most merciless and relentless of horror-movie killers: Death itself.
Last November B-D was invited to visit the Vancouver set of the latest sequel to get a behind-the-scenes look at the production process, during which I was given the opportunity to witness the filming of one particularly bad-ass action sequence, chat it up with several members of the cast and crew – including first-time franchise director and James Cameron protégé Steven Quale – and marvel at the uncanny smoothness of ageless producer Craig Perry’s baby-soft skin. See inside for the full report.
Last week you saw a bunch of behind-the-scenes photos from the wedding of the century, now international Bloody Disgusting stringer Guillermo Tato Reig weighs in with his testimony from the post-vows horror.
Inside you’ll find our set report from Filmax’s [REC] 3 Genesis, which is currently lensing in Spain under the direction of co-creator Paco Plaza. In addition to some cake cutting and bloody family members, BD scored an exlcuisve pair of new photos featuring the happy couple and one of the “infected” bridesmades.
“The action now takes place miles away from the original location and partly in broad daylight giving the film an entirely fresh yet disturbing new reality. The infection has left the building.”
Just when you thought there was nowhere else Hollywood could take vampires, they pop up in the wild west – and an alternate universe to boot. Based on the Tokyo manga graphic novel series by Min-Woo Hyung, Priest takes place in a post-apocalyptic world decimated by years of warring between vampires and humans. A group of elite warriors of the church, known only as Priests, last defeated the vampires at an enormous cost, leaving the warrior Priests as outcasts living in hiding. The city that remains exists in darkness, shrouded from the sunlight by smokestack soot lining the sky as far as the eye can see. Meanwhile, the vampires are starting to resurface, happily feeding on the unsuspecting inhabitants of a city where it is always night.
Bloody-Disgusting tackled the dusty sets of Priest way back in late 2009 on day 31 of the 60-day shoot. Originally slated for release in late 2010, Priest will now make its way to theaters May 13th, 2011. Directed by Scott Charles Stewart (Legion), Priest stars Paul Bettany as Priest; Maggie Q as Priestess; Cam Gigandet as Sheriff Hicks; Lily Collins as Lucy; Karl Urban as Black Hat and Brad Douriff as The Salesman.
