On Monday May 6, our own Alex Zalben wondered if Hans Zimmer buried a subtle reference to John Williams' legendary score from the 1978 "Superman" film (and every "Superman" movie that followed, except "Man of Steel"). Well it seems Bobby Roberts at GeekRemixed was wondering the same thing and decided to put his geeky remixing talents to work by creating this stunning mash-up of both Williams' famous score and Zimmer's newly-release tunes from the Zack Snyder-directed "Man of Steel."
You can listen to the remix, "Last Sons" after the jump. Then you can cry for the rest of life because it's powerful stuff.
Filmmaker/actor Eli Roth made a grisly splash with 2002's gross-out horror comedy "Cabin Fever" earning the title of "the future of horror" from Quentin Tarantino. Tarantino then helped usher Roth's follow-ups "Hostel" and "Hostel 2" into theaters by "presenting" the films. Roth and Tarantino remain close collaborators and colleagues with Roth starring as the baseball bat-wielding Sgt. Donny Donowitz a.k.a. "The Bear Jew" in Tarantino's "Inglorious Basterds." Roth is now using the clout he's earned for himself to help a new generation of horror and beyond get films made and released. Thus far he's produced "The Last Exorcism" and its sequel, "The Man with the Iron Fists," and more, including the new disaster film "Aftershock" from Chilean director Nicolás López.
Roth co-wrote and stars in the film that sees a handful of party-goers fighting for survival in the aftermath of a earthquake that's not only unleashed massive amounts of devastation, but a horde of psychotically violent maniacs from a local demolished prison.
I spoke with Roth over the phone about his involvement with "Aftershock," his decision to play nerdy American "Gringo," the importance of helping other filmmakers, and his next film as director, "The Green Inferno."
And while the feature film won't be out until 2014, we've got some concept art and a synopsis describing the journey of the five heroes recruited by a Japanese teen (here it seems the Disney script has created a Japan/U.S. hybrid state) to save their city of San Fransokyo from the criminal element.
Have you ever wondered what Captain James T. Kirk would look like as a KREON figure? Hasbro released a stop-motion digital short, starring the "Star Trek" Enterprise crew and featuring their KRE-O building sets and KREON figures.
Bloody Disgusting got the chance to debut the first teaser poster for "[REC] 4: Apocalypse," the final chapter in Jaume Balagueró and Paco Plaza's first-person not-quite-zombie series. The poster's fine, putting Angela (Manuela Velasco) front and center, now possessed by the demonic entity which is responsible for the rapidly-spreading plague of the flesh-eating possessed.
The question is, after the stellar second entry, 2009's "[REC] 2," and the lackluster detour into horror comedy with "[REC] 3" (and a solo directorial effort by series co-creator Plaza; Balagueró is directing "Apocalypse" on his own), can the "[REC] 4" bring a fitting end to the series?
Actor John Noble has spent a good chunk of the past decade or so appearing in projects nerdy fans love. He was Denethor in the "Lord of the Rings" movies, Dr. Walter Bishop on "Fringe," even a Transformer. But he hadn't dipped into the world of superheroes until now.
In the new DC Animated Feature "Superman: Unbound," Noble takes on the role of Brainiac, the evil, alien-AI force that shrank the Kryptonian city of Kandor and put it in a bottle. Now that the movie is available on Blu-ray, DVD, on-demand, and as a digital download, I spent a few minutes on the phone with Noble to ask how he got involved in the movie, how he prepared to play such an evil character, and what science fiction means to him.
