Lesbian Vampire Killers aren't that bad...

I mean seriously, what guy wouldn't be interested in a movie that is titled Lesbian Vampire Killers? This UK Horror/Comedy appears to be in the same vein as Shaun of the Dead.

Oh those silly Britts....I'll be seeing this, so should you too!

Aliens + Vikings + Norway = BAD ASS?

This is exactly why many say "Life is not fair." I have been long looking forward to the release of a little film called Outlander. But it turns out that certain big wigs in the film industry have managed to sink that hope, yet again, only releasing it in a limited number of cities last month. Looks like I'll have to wait for DVD.

This cross-genre film pits a marooned pilot of an other-world space craft against Vikings in 709 A.D. Norway. James Caviezel (known as Jesus in the Passion of the Christ) plays Kainan, a soldier from a far away planet whose spaceship crash lands on Earth carrying himself and a deadly alien stowaway. Before Kainin has a chance to track down the ferocious alien he is captured by viking warriors and held prisoner. As the alien terrorizes and wreaks havoc on a nearby viking village, Kainin is asked to fight alongside his viking captors. Ron Pearlman (Hellboy) and John Hurt join the cast in this scifi/fantasy/epic that is produced by Lord of the Rings Executive Producer, Barrie Osborne.

Here's a look...

On the surface, Outlander, sounds a bit ridiculous, but some critics and audiences have proven its not complete trash. In fact, many say that Outlander is destined for a cult audience. The film has already been released in Spain and made $3 million only playing on 200 screens. It makes one wonder how well it would have done had it opened wide in the U.S.. OUTLANDER is also set for UK release on April 24 2009. This may not be a science fiction smash hit like Aliens, or Predator, but Outlander has all the makings to be a fun and highly entertaining cult classic. I know I'll be picking this one up on DVD and maybe even BluRay.

iO9 posted a fairly interesting article on the films development process (includes TONS of cool concept art!), take a look HERE!

I'm Rantman!

It seems that my favorite actor is up to it again. This time his rantings are captured on tape. Christian Bale, previously known for "assaulting" his mother shortly after the release of The Dark Knight, is at it again. This time his victim: the Director of Photography for Terminator Salvation. Here is the recording, try and count the "F-words."
