“Alien vs. Predator Depressed Me,” Says Sigourney Weaver

Published

on

Seven years after the final sequel in the Alien franchise, the film’s monsters collided with another sci-fi horror series in the form of Alien vs. Predator, released in 2004. The crossover movie was panned by both fans and critics alike, and as it turns out, Sigourney Weaver didn’t like it either.

Weaver, who was of course the star of the Alien franchise, spoke about the mash-up film at the London Film and Comic-Con yesterday, expressing how bummed she was when she found out it was being made.

Per The Hollywood Reporter

Alien vs Predator

I heard that Fox was gonna do Alien vs Predator, which really depressed me because I was very proud of the movies,” Weaver told fans at the event. “I’ve nothing against building a movie on a video game, but at the time it was, as James Cameron said, I think publicly, ‘Why would you want to do that’? It’s like making Alien meets the Wolfman.”

The actress/horror icon also pointed out that Alien vs. Predator, despite being a box office success, hurt the Alien franchise more than it helped it, as she noted that Ridley Scott decided to never make an Alien sequel again in the wake of the lackluster crossover.

I think it caused more problems than it was worth,” Weaver said.

Over a decade after the release of Alien vs. Predator, the Alien franchise will return with the Neill Blomkamp-directed fifth installment, and that’s one project Weaver is very much looking forward to bringing to life.

I’m so excited about Neill — because Neill is like you guys!” Weaver told the crowd. “He broke the tapes of these movies when he was a kid, he watched them so much. I love the fact that’s Neill’s fulfilling his childhood dream of what he hopes will be the popcorn movie, the Alien popcorn movie that he wanted as a kid to see.”

Shudder Promises: “Goopy practical effects…and LOTS of blood” in Upcoming Movie

Published

on

Shudder has been hitting out of the park with new horror releases lately. Now comes word that they will release the horror/comedy Destroy All Neighbors on their streaming platform starting January 12. The movie is helmed by music video director Josh Forbes. It stars Jonah Ray Rodrigues (Mystery Science Theater 3000), and Alex Winter, Ted, of Bill & Ted Fame.

There is no trailer for the movie yet, but Shudder explains that Rodrigues plays William, “a neurotic, self-absorbed musician determined to finish his prog-rock magnum opus, faces a creative roadblock in the form of a noisy and grotesque neighbor named Vlad (Alex Winter). Finally working up the nerve to demand that Vlad keep it down, William inadvertently decapitates him. But, while attempting to cover up one murder, William’s accidental reign of terror causes victims to pile up and become undead corpses who torment and create more bloody detours on his road to prog-rock Valhalla. Destroy All Neighbors is a twisted splatter-comedy about a deranged journey of self-discovery full of goopy practical FX, a well-known ensemble cast, and LOTS of blood.”

Destroy All Neighbors will premiere on Shudder on January 12.

Arkane Studios and Marvel Reveal Rad Trailer for Blade

Published

on

Kojima

One of the biggest and most exciting moments from last night’s Game Awards was the unveiling of Arcane’s latest game, Blade! That’s right, y’all. Marvel is getting together with Arkane Studios in order to tell the tale of the Daywalker.

Blade

Arkane has been responsible for some of our favorite games over the last few years. They are responsible for Deathloop and Dishonored just to name a couple. So, the idea of a Blade game is very exciting. Mainly because we have seen what Arkane does with their special powers and perks in game. So, we already can’t wait to see the powers they unleash with Blade.

Not much is known at the moment other than the game will be a third-person experience that takes place in Paris.

The synopsis for Blade goes like this:

In Marvel’s Blade, Eric Brooks is the legendary Daywalker, half-man, half-vampire torn between the warm society of the living and the rushing power of the undead. From Bethesda and Arkane Lyon, the studio that brought you Dishonored and “DEATHLOOP”, Marvel’s Blade is a mature, single-player, third-person game set in the heart of Paris, now in development in collaboration with Marvel Games.

We are already dying to see what Arkane and Bethesda does with Blade. It will undoubtedly be a huge and memorable experience. Marvel has been doing a great job of carefully brining their games to life. If you haven’t played Guardians of the Galaxy, please do. It is a singular experience that goes beyond the game films and gives us an all-new experience in the Guardians tales. We are sure that Arkane will give us another amazing Marvel chapter when Blade is released.

There isn’t any word on when Blade is going to be released. But, we will be sure to keep you updated as soon as we hear more.
