'Cockneys vs. Zombies' will lurch into U.S. cinemas next year

Cockneys-vs-Zombies-Trailer.jpg

Rejoice, fans of cockneys, zombies, and British sitcom legend Richard Briers. Shout Factory! announced today that it has acquired distribution rights to the U.K. horror-comedy Cockneys vs. Zombies. The company plans a multi-platform roll out which will include making the film available through video-on-demand, DVD and Blu-ray releases, and distributing the movie to select cinemas. In addition to Briers, Cockneys vs. Zombies stars Honor Blackman (British TV show The Avengers), Alan Ford (Snatch), and onetime Bionic Woman Michelle Ryan.

Shout Factory! is also set to distribute the action-thriller Tower Block, which like Cockneys vs. Zombies was penned by James Moran, whose other credits include Doctor Who, Torchwood, and the 2006 horror film Severance.

You can check out the extremely foul-mouthed red-band trailer for Cockneys vs. Zombies below. READ FULL STORY

'Big Trouble In Little China' gets the 'Gangnam Style' treatment in parody clip -- VIDEO

big-trouble-in-little-china.jpg

For much of the 1986 martial arts action-comedy Big Trouble In Little China, Kurt Russell’s truck-driving hero Jack Burton exists in a state of complete, and hilarious, confusion (“Where are we, Wang?” “What’s happening, Wang?” “Jesus Christ, where are we?”). So heaven knows what Burton would have to say about the new, jaw-droppingly elaborate parody clip “Lo Pan Style” which melds director John Carpenter’s way-ahead-of-its-time movie with Psy’s globe-conquering horsey-hit “Gangnam Style.” But the video does feature James Hong, who actually played the villainous Lo Pan in the original film, and has also apparently been given the thumbs up by Carpenter himself – which is good enough for us.

'Dredd 3D': Check out the Mondo poster for tomorrow's Fantastic Fest screening -- EXCLUSIVE

dredd-3d

Splundig vur thrigg, Earthlets!

If you recognize that reference to the Judge Dredd strip-spawning U.K. comic 2000ADand its alien editor “Tharg” — then you, like me, may have been waiting upwards of 35 years for a decent movie featuring Mega-City One’s top cop to arrive in cinemas (don’t get me started on the Sly Stone-starring 1995 fiasco).

Judging by the current Rotten Tomatoes rating for Dredd 3D — and my colleague Darren Franich’s enthusiastic review of the film in the new issue of Entertainment Weekly — that wait will end this Friday when the Karl Urban-toplined actioner hits screens across the country. However, lucky attendees of this year’s Fantastic Fest shindig in Austin, Tex., will be seeing the film tomorrow at a screening attended by Urban, Olivia Thirlby, and screenwriter Alex Garland. To mark the occasion, the Alamo Drafthouse’s collectible art boutique arm Mondo has commissioned a special poster by the artist Jock that will be available to purchase at Fantastic Fest (any unpurchased posters will be sold online.)

You can inspect said artifact above and, in larger form, below (along with the Dredd 3D trailer). I think you’ll agree it’s pretty zarjaz. READ FULL STORY

Check out the new 'RoboCop' armor -- PHOTO

The RoboCop reboot is currently filming, with Killing refugee Joel Kinnaman taking over as the titular cyborg cop. Some mysterious photos from the set have surfaced over at ComingSoon.net, showing off what appears to be a brand-new model of RoboCop armor. Instead of the shiny metal suit that made the original RoboCop look like an anthropomorphized DeLorean, Kinnaman’s armor is an all-black exoskeleton. READ FULL STORY

DREDD-POSTER

Judgment is coming to cinemas this Friday. No, we’re not referring to EW’s weekly film reviews — though you should definitely check those out as well — but rather the arrival in multiplexes of Dredd 3D.

'V/H/S': Check out the horror anthology's new poster from 'Walking Dead' artist Tony Moore -- EXCLUSIVE

vhs.jpg

Want to get a jump on Halloween? Well, you could hone your pumpkin-hollowing skills. Or you could watch the new, found footage horror anthology V/H/S, which arrives in cinemas October 5 but is already available on VOD.

Framed by the tale of a burglary attempt which goes horribly awry the terror compendium’s directors include Ti West (House of the Devil), Glenn McQuaid (I Sell the Dead), and the filmmaking collective Radio Silence. The latter group are responsible for the anthology’s concluding chapter, “10/31/98,” in which the attempt by a group of costumed friends to attend a Halloween party goes, yes, horribly awry. “10/31/98″ is also the inspiration for a new V/H/S poster from artist Tony Moore, who is best known for his work on the Walking Dead comic. Moore’s work is one of five posters commissioned from comic book artists — the other contributors being James StokoeRM Guéra, Jason Latour, and Esad Ribic.

You can exclusively check out Moore’s poster above and, in larger format, below, where you’ll also find the V/H/S trailer.

'The Bay' trailer: Check out the clip for Barry Levinson's found footage horror movie -- VIDEO

What would a coastally-set found footage horror movie look like if it was directed by much lauded, Oscar-winning director Barry Levinson? Yes, that’s an unusual, and unusually specific, question. But it’s one we’re now able to ruminate upon in an informed manner thanks to the arrival of the trailer for The Bay, a coastally-set found footage horror movie which is indeed the work of the Diner and Rain Man auteur.

The answer? It looks much like the kind of amazingly gruesome, body horror-featuring gorefest one imagines David Cronenberg might make had he not abandoned the genre in favor of the sort of high-minded, actorly material once much more associated with filmmakers such as, well, Barry Levinson.

Take a look at the clip for The Bay — which swims into cinemas and onto VOD, November 2 — and see if you agree.

revenge-lightsaber

Blame Jar Jar Binks. In the wake of last winter’s successful 3-D release of The Phantom Menace, Lucasfilm has announced that the movie’s fellow prequels, Star Wars: Episode II — Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith, will be translated into the third dimension as well.

According to the official Star Wars Facebook page, these films will hit theaters again next fall. Clones will begin playing Sept. 20, 2013, while Sith will follow on Oct. 11.

George Lucas’s movies won’t be 2013′s only major re-releases. Universal announced two weeks ago that Jurassic Park 3D will debut on April 5, while Disney revealed in 2011 that enhanced versions of both Monsters, Inc. and The Little Mermaid will appear in theaters on Jan. 18 and Sept. 13, respectively.

'The Apparition' director Todd Lincoln talks about his new horror movie -- and terrorizing 'Twilight' fans

THE-APPARITION-POSTER

Ever since he was a horror movie-obsessed kid growing up in Tulsa, Okla., Todd Lincoln has dreamed about unleashing hell onto the big screen. But the writer-director has spent much of the past decade discovering the real-life horrors of development hell as a succession of projects — including a reboot of The Fly and an adaptation of the comic book series Hack/Slash — came to naught. “You’d have the friends and the family and everybody come up and say, ‘Hey, maybe you should think about something else,’” Lincoln admits.
