Mortal Kombat: Legacy 2 To Be Unleashed On Sept. 26, And All At Once
MTV News - over 3 years
by Matt Hawkins The second season of Mortal Kombat: Legacy, one of the most successful web series to be based upon any video game ever, is almost upon us. Mortal Kombat: Legacy II will make its debut on Sept. 26, via Machinima's YouTube channel. But first thing's first; check out the brand new trailer: Once again, the series is being helmed by Kevin Tancharoen. The first Mortal Kombat: Legacy was borne from a short he created, which served as a proof of concept for a live action MK-reboot. It's not a stretch to say that it perhaps did more to revive interest in the Mortal Kombat that any of the actual games in recent years. Though the highly successful, back to basics, most recent installment of the game was in production well before the first web series had hit the web, though that game's popularity was certainly bolstered by the show nonetheless. According to the PR, the cast for season two will include Harry Shum, Jr. (Glee), Casper Van Dien (Starship Troopers), Bri ...

Sharktopus Is Back
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Move over, "Sharknado." Pteracudas and Mermantulas are moving in. After the recent success of Syfy's "Sharknado" -- which generated a Twitter frenzy and already has a sequel in the works -- the network is revamping an old favorite, 2010's Sharktopus. While the original TV movie centered on a half-shark, half-octopus creature created for the military, two new films are on their way: "Sharktopus Versus Pteracuda," which centers on a half-pterodactyl, half-barracuda, and "Sharktopus Versus Mermantula," in which the half-shark, half-octopus battles a part-man, part-piranha, part-tarantula. While "Sharktopus Versus Pteracuda" has been described as "Sharktopus' offspring going toe-to-toe with the latest science experiment 'Pteracuda; in a battle for supremacy," according to Dread Central, the description of "Sharktopus Versus Mermantula," which stars Casper Van Dien and Catherine Oxenberg, is even more detailed: "In order to take down Sharktopus, Ray Brady, a former bas ...

Jesse Aizenstat: 20-somethings Want No Makeup With Their Journalism
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
It was in Starship Troopers, otherwise known to my generation as the best "B movie" of all time, where the commander said: "Figuring things out for yourself is really the only freedom anyone really has. Use that freedom. Make up your own mind." Well, who would have thought that such wisdom would come from a gory Casper Van Dien movie, where mixed gender army units shoot up a strange planet filled with hostile arachnids? No matter. Today's 20-somethings don't trust the heavy makeup journalism on CNN. We can sniff out the phonies of any Fox News panel, and are tired of listening to a bunch of PR-placed "experts" sitting in their overly air-conditioned newsroom, talking about what's happening outside. How do they know? To us, it's about traveling to the raw source of the story. The journey is the destination. My generation wants a vicarious experience on the front lines. We relate to the anti-hero, and enjoy a host that never lets things get too serious. There's no time ...

Dread Central - almost 5 years
More goodies are coming in from across the pond. A new trailer and the first ever stills for the Nicholas McCarthy spooker The Pact (review here) have arrived, and we have it all right here for you. Dig it! Look for the flick in limited release on July 6th here in the States and on June 8th in the UK.

Synopsis After their mother passes away, sisters Nicole and Annie reluctantly return to their childhood home to pay their last respects.

Kristen Stewart to Cameo in Her Mother’s Directorial Debut K-11; Casper Van Dien and Eric Roberts Lead ASSUMED MEMORIES
Collider - almost 5 years
When we spoke with <a class="fplink fp-166728" href="/Kristen+Stewart+1">Kristen Stewart</a> way back in 2009, she talked about starring in her mother Jules Stewart's directorial debut K-11.  Her description of the role: "I play a young girl who is not a girl. Her name is Butterfly. She's autistic and that's it. That's Butterfly." As enticing as that sounds, Stewart's schedule got crazy, so she is no longer Butterfly.  However, E! learned that the Twilight star will appear in the movie, albeit in a very minor capacity---what Jules Stewart calls a "micro-cameo."  You'll hear her voice as the secretary of "a dissipated record producer (Goran Visnjic), who finds himself locked up in L.A. County's notorious K-11 unit, which specializes in special protection for LGBT inmates."  Older brother Cameron Stewart will also appear in a role credited on IMDB as "Sledgehammer."  This movie will be freaky. Hit the jump for details on Assumed Memories. Variety reports that <a class="fplink fp ...
