The boys over at Arrow in the Head have a photo of a new one sheet for the Steven Quale-directed Final Destination 5 3D, which appears to be some sort of international sales art (Warners tells Bloody that it’s not theirs, but Arrow assures us it’s the real deal). It features a dude hanging for his life (not as cool as Stallone in Cliffhanger) and some subliminal imagery (it has something to do with the light leaking through the cracking bridge). Also, it looks as if New Line Cinema has opted to push the film behind “the writer of A Nightmare on Elm Street“. Is this a good selling point? Speak below!
In this fifth installment starring Miles Fisher, Arlen Escarpeta, Nicholas D’Agosto, Ellen Wroe, Meghan Ory, David Koechner, Tony Todd, P.J. Byrne, Emma Bell, Jacqueline MacInnes Wood and Courtney B. Vance, “Death is just as omnipresent as ever, and is unleashed after one man’s premonition saves a group of coworkers from a terrifying suspension bridge collapse. But this group of unsuspecting souls was never supposed to survive, and, in a terrifying race against time, the ill-fated group frantically tries to discover a way to escape Death’s sinister agenda.”
Warner Bros. will release in theaters August 12.
The trailer for Final Destination 5 is having its television premiere later tonight on G4′s Attack Of The Show, but our first look at the film made its way online early this morning.
Directed by Steven Quale (second-unit director on Avatar) and written by Eric Heisserer (The Thing, A Nightmare On Elm Street), the newest entry “centers around a suspension bridge collapse and Death’s ability to find creative ways to kill the survivors.”
From the trailer, it looks like Tony Todd has a much more prominent role, but we’ll find out for sure on August 12.
You can spot Champ Kind (David Koechner) around 1:05. WHAMMY!
You got to love Twitter, a place where a writer, director or star can spit out a quick quotable blurb for us to quickly write up story on.
Final Destination 5 screenwriter Eric Heisserer reports in with some uplifting news after seeing an early cut of the film. “Saw a cut of #FD5 last week. You guys are gonna love the deaths. Esp the lasik sequence,” he teases, referencing a death sequence that sold New Line Cinema on hiring Heisserer for the fourth sequel. “There is a LOT of character development in the FD5 script,” he adds, “Unsure how much will survive editing. Fingers crossed.”
You’re telling me, I’m crossing my toes too. After the two previous terrible sequels, the producers promised a darker “return to the roots” style. And frankly, the more character development, the more you’ll care when those little teen bastards die.
Directed by Steven Quale, and in theaters August 26, Death is just as omnipresent as ever, and is unleashed after one man’s premonition saves a group of coworkers from a terrifying suspension bridge collapse. But this group of unsuspecting souls was never supposed to survive, and, in a terrifying race against time, the ill-fated group frantically tries to discover a way to escape Death’s sinister agenda.
Are you guys clamoring for more Final Destination films? Statistically speaking, you may get your wish — and even better, per your infinite requests, you may be seeing a lot more of Tony Todd as “Bludworth”.
When asked what to expect from the upcoming Final Destination 5 Todd told Dread Central, “Thumbs up! Thumbs way up. They expanded my part, and the producer told me as we were leaving Vancouver that if it opens at Number 1 – which statistically it has – they’re going to shoot the next two simultaneously.”
Back-to-back Final Destination sequels? A bigger role for Tony Todd? After the disastrous fourth film in the franchise, might New Line Cinema be headed in the right direction?! Producers promised a darker “return to the roots” approach for the Steven Quale-directed 3D pic arriving in theaters August 26. Sh*t, Quale is James Cameron’s protege, how is that not already moving things in the right direction? What do you guys think? That’s a whole lotta question marks…
Warner Bros. Pictures just provided Bloody Disgusting with your first ever look at Final Destination 5, the 3-D sequel being directed by James Cameron protege Steven Quale. Unfortunately, the images don’t really provide anything all too exciting, but we do have a long way until August 26, 2011. Starring Miles Fisher, Arlen Escarpeta, Nicholas D’Agosto, Ellen Wroe, Meghan Ory, David Koechner, Tony Todd, P.J. Byrne, Emma Bell, Jacqueline MacInnes Wood and Courtney B. Vance, in this fifth installment, Death is just as omnipresent as ever, and is unleashed after one man’s premonition saves a group of coworkers from a terrifying suspension bridge collapse. But this group of unsuspecting souls was never supposed to survive, and, in a terrifying race against time, the ill-fated group frantically tries to discover a way to escape Death’s sinister agenda.
American World Pictures (AWP) just announced that they acquired the Tony Todd starrer One by One: Death’s Door from Mad Crapper Films at this year’s AFM. The film, which also stars Douglas Tait (Freddy vs. Jason), Sally Kirkland (JFK) and Chris Bruno (Dead Zone), was written and directed by Kimberly Seilhamer and tells the story of a group of teens who set out on a field trip to a railroad museum and encounter `Railroad Jack’. After making sure their bus crashes, he forces them to explore `Railroad Jack’s’ carnival, where the reaper “picks” them off one by one. It seems that they changed the killers name from Railroad Jack the Reaper to just Railroad Jack, which rolls off the tongue a lot easier. Sadly, no images or trailers are available as of this point. The premise sounds goofy enough to make an enjoyable 80 minute slasher; here’s hoping they don’t try to force the creation of an icon and just let the film do it on its own.
Hatchet II follows Marybeth (Danielle Harris) as she escapes from the clutches of Victor Crowley (Kane Hodder), learns the truth about his curse, and heads back into the haunted New Orleans swamp to seek revenge for her family and kill Victor Crowley once and for all…

In the early ‘90s, a 32-year-old psychotherapist (writer/producer/director Seth Landau) began to suspect that his small Arizona community was being taken over by a homicidal religious cult known as ‘The Bryans’. His entire ordeal was captured on camcorder footage and security tapes. They are the video musings of a highly disturbed young man. This is what was recovered. George Wendt (Cheers, King of the Ants), Tony Todd (Candyman), Tiffany Shepis (Abominable) and Daniel Roebuck (The Devils’ Reject’s) co-star – with cameos by Troma’s Lloyd Kaufman, Chuck Williams (Bubba Ho-Tep) and scream queen Brinke Stevens – in this disturbing chiller based on the 1993 true story that shocked America.
It’s based on the Robert Lewis Stevenson classic, but we did have to change to contemporary times.
