Featurette “The Creatures of SOLOMON KANE” goes behind the scenes

Vanquish Evil

Solomon Kane is a fictional character created by the pulp-era writer Robert E. Howard. A 16th century Puritan, Solomon Kane is a somber-looking man who wanders the world with no apparent goal other than to vanquish evil in all its forms. His adventures, published mostly in the pulp magazine Weird Tales, often take him from Europe to the jungles of Africa and back

The Creatures of

Howard described him as a somber and gloomy man of pale face and cold eyes, all of it shadowed by a slouch hat. He is dressed entirely in black and his weaponry consists of a rapier, a dagger, and a brace of flintlock pistols. During one of his latter adventures his friend N’Longa, an African shaman, gave him a juju staff that served as a protection against evil, but could easily be wielded as an effective weapon. It is revealed in another story, “The Footfalls Within,” that this is the mythical Staff of Solomon, a talisman older than the Earth and unimaginably powerful, much more so than even N’Longa knew. In the same adventure with N’Longa, Kane is seen using a musket as well. Source: Wikipedia

Solomon Kane is directed by Michael J. Bassett The movie tells the origins of Solomon Kane and is hoped to be the first of a trilogy of movies and stars James Purefoy Here is one  review of the movie

SOLOMON KANE was really not what I expected. It’s far, far better than I could have hoped. As it stands, its pretty unique in the sword and sorcery movies simply because it has proper drama, great performances and some nasty intense action along with all the traditional sword fights, magical monsters and running, jumping and chasing [more]

Jennifer’s Body is rated by several sites as one of the better horrors to come out this year, to the surprise of all, It is a sexy horror film with a wicked sense of humor and Megan Fox did a good job in the acting department, yes I actually said that. Her supporting cast members such as  Amanda Seyfried who plays Needy Jennifer’s friend who has been living in her shadow and must step-up to protect the town’s young men from the demonic Jennifer who has developed a taste for their flesh after a satanic ritual goes wrong

Carriers During a global viral epidemic, four people seek safety by traveling towards the Gulf of Mexico, avoiding anyone who might be a carrier of the deadly disease. This is 28 Days Later without the zombies and was actually made  some years back but finally released because Chris Pine was now a recognizable name and the word pandemic was on everyone’s mind these days

9 Any movie with the name Tim Burton attached you know will be different.

” Shane Acker‘s  post-apocalyptic animated adventure 9 began its life as the young director’s thesis project during his grad school days in UCLA’s animation department. In that original incarnation, the film was an 11-minute silent short that plunged viewers into a desolate, destroyed world inhabited only by diminutive rag dolls loosely stitched together out of whatever odds and ends survived the unseen cataclysm. ”

ALIENS vs PREDATOR Storyline Trailer released by Sega

Hunter or the Prey

If your like me and you can’t get enough Alien or Predator action then you’re going to love this trailer put out by Sega and narrated by the man himself Karl Bishop Weyland. The story reads a lot like Aliens with a colony as the backdrop and the all to eager space marines landing to investigate. The trailer opens with an ad pitch from Weyland-Yutani, a corporation promising to “build a better tomorrow” on a planet dominated by a conflict between Aliens and Predators. You can play the game as ether an Alien,  Predator or the Marines

Jude Law’s REPO MEN Red Band Trailer has no Singing

Don't be a Deadbeat

Jude Law hits theaters soon as Dr. Watson opposite Robert Downey, Jr. in Sherlock Holmes. But on April 2, 2010, Law’s got something completely different in mind. As he Plays Remy a Repo man on the run. In this new film

” Set in the near future when artificial organs can be bought on credit, it revolves around a man who struggles to make the payments on a heart he has purchased. He must therefore go on the run before said ticker is repossessed. ”

Trailer

Two things immediately jump to mind here

  • Logan’s Run
  • Repo! The Genetic Opera

Remy as an enforcer for some big corporation has a partner and they chase down deadbeats who fail to pay their bills but the tables are turned when Remy is the recipient of a transplant and he now can’t pay for it so he runs and who do you think is chasing him, his former partner. Sound like a certain Sandman we all know. Second is Repo! The Genetic Opera which came out in 2008 and is apparently a cult classic in some circles. I have never seen it and the only reason I even know about it is because of Sarah Brightman‘s being in it. The plot with lots of singing goes as

” In the year 2056 – the not so distant future – an epidemic of organ failures devastates the planet. Out of the tragedy, a savior emerges: GeneCo, a biotech company that offers organ transplants, for a price. Those who miss their payments are scheduled for repossession and hunted by villainous Repo Men. ”

Cult Classic?

Hollywood liked the idea so much they turned it into a big-budget action fleck, concluding wisely that a  musical about organ repossession with deadly consequences would not have any mass appeal. Forest Whitaker co-stars as the former partner now chasing Remy and Liev Schreiber also co-stars as Frank who is Remy’s former chief

Repo Men opens in theaters on April 2 2010

STAR TREK ONLINE: The Veil of Space Part I – Into the Lions Den

Star Trek Online

Cryptic Studies has just released its latest video for Star Trek Online and they get more detailed all the time this one I suspect is giving us an example of one of their episodes which they say will closely mirror actual episodes from the various series in the Star Trek universe. Players in the game will go thought about 20 of these episodes each one contributing to an overarching story for that season, this is just a general description but you get the idea.  This video represents a typical Star Trek story line which we have all seen many times in the series, but gives you a good idea of how space based and ground based elements would work together to further the plot development in that episode and the overall season leading to the season ending cliff hanger so to speak.

INTO THE LIONS DEN

Star trek Online will be released in North America on February 2 and in Europe on February 5
