Cant wait till GODZILLA in May, how about a giant sea monster movie staring Brian Krause (Leo from Charmed) and the smoking hott Anne McDaniels. Five mins into the thing I was the worst CGI for a MOVIE ever , for a video game it was top notch. Not every film can be a winner. The poster looked cool. What I don’t understand tho is the Dinosaurs in Jurassic Park 21 years ago still hold up today. The performances were ok, the CGI was just bad bad bad. I like Brian tho and hope to have him on the show soon, I was a big fan of his character from Charmed. Cinematography was really good, and that’s where a lot of these sci fi monster movies shine. Just put more effort into the CGI. OR how about NO CGI your making a fucking MONSTER MOVIE go crazy cut a actor or two and spend the money on a rubber monster something real and silly, I would rather have that than BAD CGI.  

A small, secluded island off the coast of Belize suddenly finds itself terrorized by a deadly predator from the planet’s distant past, when deep-sea divers accidentally awaken an ancient evil. Jackson Slate and his team of underwater cave explorers unearth much more than long-lost Mayan treasure while plumbing the depths of a world famous blue hole. They disturb a creature that’s been hibernating for over 60,000 years – a rampaging behemoth of death and destruction not only at sea but also on land.

ImageFox put out a press release about the 35 Anniversary of ALIEN, New toys video games books novels comics, They are GOING SUPER ALIEN CRAZY this year. Makes you wonder what will happen in 15 years during the 50th Anniversary.

 

 

From the Press Release 35 years later, fans are still “screaming” in space as Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products celebrates the 35th anniversary of the groundbreaking film ALIEN, one of the most enduring sci-fi horror franchises of all time, with multiple iconic partners for exclusive branded merchandise available worldwide.

National Entertainment Collectibles Association (NECA), an entertainment conglomerate and global leader in licensed consumer goods, in association with Fox Consumer Products, announces today the first-ever action figures of Lieutenant Ellen Ripley that feature the likeness of actress Sigourney Weaver, who was nominated for an Oscar® and Golden Globe® for ALIENS in 1987. The officially licensed Ripley action figures from NECA will span multiple movies within the ALIEN saga: Initial plans include a figure of Ripley in her Nostromo jumpsuit from the original 1979 film, to be followed later by a Ripley figure based on the 1986 movie ALIENS, directed by James Cameron.

“As we celebrate the 35th anniversary of one of the most successful film franchises of all time,  we are thrilled to introduce an array of commemorative products across different categories in partnership with iconic brands including NECA, SEGA, and many more,” said Jeffrey Godsick, president of Fox Consumer Products. “In addition to the highly anticipated release of Alien: Isolation™, hardcore fans can finally add Lieutenant Ellen Ripley to their ALIEN collections as we welcome her NECA figures into the family of officially-licensed merchandise. Many other exciting first-time and limited edition products will also release to celebrate this exciting milestone this year.”

LEGO GHOSTBUSTERS

Posted in Convention, ghosts, news, SciFi, Toys on February 18, 2014 by chrisdsav

Finally here! Just in time for Toy Fair 2014, we have your first look at the official LEGO Ghostbusters set, and it is pretty amazing. This is fantastic if you bought the Lego Monster set and now you can have the two interact. Lego are very expensive but this is one set I am definitely picking up. They have Lord of the Rings and Marvel and DC and TMNT and a MONSTER sets what not Freddy and Jason and Michael. They have the some bloody body count as the monsters do and they made Lego’s out of the villains from Marvel and DC comics, are you really going to tell me Carnage, Dr.Doom, The Green Goblin, Dark Side and even The Shredder don’t have a huge body count??

The line was original conceived by fan Brent Waller.

We’re thrilled to take the ECTO-1 and minifigure characters from Brent Waller’s Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary project…” said the company in a prior press release. “This is an amazing model, and the set will be a fantastic representation of the cult classic film.

The LEGO Ghostbusters will make their debut in early June. Fans will have the chance to build brick versions of Ecto-1, the ghost-fighting team’s classic vehicle, and play with minifigure versions of Peter Venkman, Ray Stantz, Egon Spengler and Winston Zeddemore.

Sega has a new Alien game coming out but after AvsP and Alien Colonial Marines were not what we expected can this new development team give us a great Alien game. it takes place 15 year after the first movie before the events of ALIENS.

The game’s story picks up 15 years after first film. The Nostromo’s flight recorder was recovered, after Ripley blew the ship up, and has been brought to a past-its-prime space station out on the fringe of human expansion. You play as Amanda Ripley, Ellen Ripley’s daughter, who is still wondering what happened to her mother. Amanda and a team from the series’ mega corporation Weyland Yutani travel to the station to retrieve the flight recorder and get some answers.

 

KEY FEATURES

 
 

Overcome an ever-present deadly threat

Experience persistent fear as a truly dynamic and reactive Alien uses its senses to hunt you down and respond to your every move.

Improvise to survive

Hack systems, scavenge for vital resources and craft items to deal with each situation. Will you evade your enemies, distract them or face them head on?

Explore a world of mystery and betrayal

Immerse yourself in the detailed setting of Sevastopol, a decommissioned trading station on the fringes of space. Encounter a rich cast of inhabitants in a world scarred by fear and mistrust.
