‘3 Body Problem’ Trailer is Creeping Out Netflix Viewers Due to Real-Life Similarities

Published

on

The trailer for Netflix’s upcoming 3 Body Problem series is getting a little too real. Much like Leave the World Behind, this one seems to be holding up a spooky mirror to our world in 2024 and it is giving some Netflix viewers a case of the NOPES.

The new series takes place over eight episodes and explores Earth-shattering discoveries. These take place from China to the US and over generations.

The synopsis for 3 Body Problem goes like this:

The story begins in 1960s China when a young woman makes a fateful decision that reverberates across space and time into the present day. When the laws of nature inexplicably unravel, a tight-knit group of brilliant scientists must join forces with an unflinching detective to stop humanity’s greatest threat. 3 Body Problem is an epic story that redefines sci-fi drama with its layered mysteries and story of human connection. 

“We like the same things about the books that so many other fans do,” said Creator D.B. Weiss. “We’re doing everything in our power to bring this story to life in the best, most impactful way possible. But reading the books is not a prerequisite for understanding or enjoying the show.”

We are aready excited about this one considering all the craziness on Instagram feeds at the moment. It seems like ever since it turned 2024 the world has been taking all kinds of weird and spooky turns.

3 Body Problem arrives on Netflix beginning March 21.

We think that 3 Body Problem is going to be another Leave the World Behind scenario with lots to compare to our real world. What do you think? Are you excited about catching this one?

‘Boy Kills World’ Drops New Trailer with Bill Skarsgard and Is Being Produced By Sam Raimi

Published

on

Boy Kills World is what happens when some of the biggest names in the horror industry decide to rip about the young adult ‘chosen one’ genre. I didn’t know that this was something that I needed in my life but now I cannot live without it.

The special child that has to rise up against the violent oppressive overlords is something we have seen a lot of in the past twenty years. Films like The Hunger Games and The Maze Runner are films that changed an entire generation of young adults. Sam Raimi (Evil Dead) is a producer on this film with Moritz Mohr Directing.

Boy Kills World is set to release on April 26th, 2024 via Roadside Attractions. Not only do we have some great creatives working with an awesome premise, but this film also has an amazing cast. We will see stars like Bill Skarsgard (IT), Jessica Rothe (Happy Death Day), Andrew Koji (Snake Eyes), Isaiah Mustafa (IT: Chapter 2), and Brett Gelman (Stranger Things).

This film looks bonkers in all the best ways. That’s all the information we have for you at this time. Make sure to check back here for all of your horror news and updates.

Review: Is There ‘No Way Up’ For This Shark Film?

Published

on

A flock of birds flies into the jet engine of a commercial airliner making it crash into the ocean with only a handful of survivors tasked with escaping the sinking plane while also enduring depleting oxygen and nasty sharks in No Way Up. But does this low-budget film rise above its shopworn monster trope or sink beneath the weight of its shoestring budget?

First, this film obviously isn’t on the level of another popular survival film, Society of the Snow, but surprisingly it isn’t Sharknado either. You can tell a lot of good direction went into making it and its stars are up for the task. The histrionics are kept at a bare minimum and unfortunately the same can be said about the suspense. That isn’t to say that No Way Up is a limp noodle, there is plenty here to keep you watching until the end, even if the last two minutes is offensive to your suspension of disbelief.

Let’s start with the good. No Way Up has plenty of good acting, especially from its lead Sophie McIntosh who plays Ava, a rich governor’s daughter with a heart of gold. Inside, she is struggling with the memory of her mother’s drowning and is never far from her overprotective older bodyguard Brandon played with nannyish diligence by Colm Meaney. McIntosh doesn’t reduce herself to the size of a B-movie, she is fully committed and gives a strong performance even if the material is trodden.

No Way Up

Another standout is Grace Nettle playing the 12-year-old Rosa who is traveling with her grandparents Hank (James Caroll Jordan) and Mardy (Phyllis Logan). Nettle doesn’t reduce her character to a delicate tween. She’s scared yes, but she also has some input and pretty good advice about surviving the situation.

Will Attenborough plays the unfiltered Kyle who I imagine was there for comic relief, but the young actor never successfully tempers his meanness with nuance, therefore he just comes across as a die-cut archetypical asshole inserted to complete the diverse ensemble.

Rounding out the cast is Manuel Pacific who plays Danilo the flight attendant who is the mark of Kyle’s homophobic aggressions. That whole interaction feels a bit outdated, but again Attenborough hasn’t fleshed out his character well enough to warrant any.

No Way Up

Continuing on with what is good in the film are the special effects. The plane crash scene, as they always are, is terrifying and realistic. Director Claudio Fäh has spared no expense in that department. You have seen it all before, but here, since you know they are crashing into the Pacific it’s more tense and when the plane hits the water you’ll wonder how they did it.

As for the sharks they are equally impressive. It’s hard to tell if they used live ones. There are no hints of CGI, no uncanny valley to speak of and the fish are genuinely threatening, although they don’t get the screentime you might be expecting.

Now with the bad. No Way Up is a great idea on paper, but the reality is something like this couldn’t happen in real life, especially with a jumbo jet crashing into the Pacific Ocean at such a fast speed. And even though the director has successfully made it seem like it could happen, there are so many factors that just don’t make sense when you think about it. Underwater air pressure is the first to come to mind.

It also lacks a cinematic polish. It has this straight-to-video feel, but the effects are so good that you can’t help but feel the cinematography, especially inside the plane should have been slightly elevated. But I’m being pedantic, No Way Up is a good time.

The ending doesn’t quite live up to the film’s potential and you will be questioning the limits of the human respiratory system, but again, that’s nitpicking.

Overall, No Way Up is a great way to spend an evening watching a survival horror movie with the family. There are some bloody images, but nothing too bad, and the shark scenes can be mildly intense. It is rated R on the low end.

No Way Up might not be the “next great shark” movie, but it is a thrilling drama that rises above the other chum so easily thrown into the waters of Hollywood thanks to the dedication of its stars and believable special effects.

No Way Up is now available to rent on digital platforms.
