‘Epic’ Trailer: It’s ‘Ferngully’ For The New Generation

Posted: 20 Nov 2012 07:00 PM PST


A new trailer for Epic, an animated film that follows the secret lives of forest beings protecting their sacred land from a force that seeks to destroy it, has been released.

A teenage girl spending time at a relative's house gets shrunken down to their size and joins the forces of the forest dwellers to help them save the forest world and her world as well. Sure it may sound like a revamped version of Ferngully, but Epic doesn't look like anything the Blue Sky has done before. The studio also worked on the Ice Age franchise and RIO.

Check out the latest trailer below. [...]

UPDATED! Disney Looking To Hire Lawrence Kasdan, Simon Kinberg To Write ‘Star Wars Episode 8′ & ‘Episode 9′?

The great thing about owning Star Wars (if you happen to have a few billion dollars hiding in your gigantic couch cushions, as Disney did), is that you don't have to wait around to see if one movie will do well enough to warrant a sequel and eventual franchise. It's already one of the most established franchises in history, a guaranteed cash cow. And they plan on jumping all over that fact like a frat boy would a freshly microwaved burrito...hopefully to our collective delight, and not our condemnation.

We've already found out that Oscar winning Little Miss Sunshine and Toy Story 3 writer Michael Arndt will write the first planned movie, Star Wars Episode VII, for its 2015 release. But now comes word that the company is already looking at two more writers to take on the next two installments, Star Wars Episode VIII (or IIX? Have we ever gotten this high with a Roman numeral movie franchise?) and Star Wars Episode IX. [...]

It's become very clear that the Osborn family and corporation will be a major factor The Amazing Spider-Man 2. We previously posted that Brady Corbet (Tetro), Alden Ehrenreich (Beautiful Creatures), and Dane Dehaan (Chronicle) were up for the role of Harry Osborn, son of Norman Osborn and heir to OsCorp.

Starring Conor Marren, Emma Eliza Regan, Johnny Carey
Produced by Kevin Fisher, Randal Plunkett

Robert (Conor Marren) wakes up in a forest with a severe head wound. He calls out for help but when no one comes, he ambles through the woods to a house of horrors. There's no help there, either. This is the opening scene of Out There, the latest short horror film by Randal Plunkett. You can watch the trailer below.

Through flashbacks, we learn what has happened to the young man and his girlfriend, Jane, (Emma Eliza Regan) with whom he was traveling. We learn the phones have gone down everywhere and she's worried about her parents. We learn there's been a car accident and something else - something so horrific it leads the young man to do the unthinkable: leave his girlfriend trapped and all too conscious in the car that won't start in time for them to get away from…wait for it…a hourde of fast moving ZOMBIES!

$5 MP3 Album Deal: The Doors ‘The Doors’

Posted: 20 Nov 2012 11:30 AM PST

The Doors

The Doors, the debut album by the 1960s legendary California quartet, who wound up becoming one of the most influential and successful American bands of all time, is now available on MP3 format from Amazon this month for only $5.00.

Upon release of this record originally, on Elektra Records 45 years ago this past January, the musical game changed forever in modern rock and roll and its styles. The band's sounds were mired in darkness, early prototypes of Gothic and alternative rock and roll, blues music saturated in a cryptic, murky, opaque, shadowy sound, a positive creepiness if you will, led by the shock cock rock of lead singer Jim Morrison.
