A teaser for the Riddick trailer came online back in March, but now the full trailer is available and you can check it out below! You can also view the new poster and photos in the gallery. Opening in theaters and IMAX on September 6, the David Twohy film stars Vin Diesel, Karl Urban, Jordi Molla, Matt Nable, Katee Sackhoff, Bokeem Woodbine, Dave Bautista, Conrad Pla, Raoul Trujillo, Nolan Funk and Keri Hilson. In the film, the infamous Riddick has been left for dead on a sun-scorched planet that appears to be lifeless. Soon, however, he finds himself fighting for survival against alien predators more lethal than any human he's encountered. The only way off is for Riddick to activate an emergency beacon and alert mercenaries who rapidly descend to the planet in search of their bounty. The first ship to arrive carries a new breed of merc, more lethal and violent, while the second is captained by a man whose pursuit of Riddick is more personal. With time running out and a storm on the horizon that no one could survive, his hunters won't leave the planet without Riddick's head as their trophy.
Kickstarter has been a hot topic lately. The creator of Veronica Mars used it to raise more than $4 million to fund a movie version of the show. Zach Braff has raised more than $2 million to fund his next directorial effort (following Garden State). There has been heated debate about whether or not people with established relationships in Hollywood (Warner Bros. will be releasing the Mars movie) or significant wealth (Braff reportedly made $350,000 per episode during the final season of Scrubs) using Kickstarter aligns with the original intentions of the crowdfunding site.
Now, filmmakers with years of experience in horror are using Kickstarter in an effort to fund a new sci-fi/horror feature. You may not know their names, but you definitely know their work. Alec Gillis and Tom Woodruff, Jr. operate Amalgamated Dynamics, Inc. They have created practical animatronic and makeup effects for Tremors, Wolf, Starship Troopers, Alien 3, Alien: Resurrection, Alien vs. Predator, and The Thing remake.
ShockTillYouDrop.com recently spoke with the lovely Katharine Isabelle. The Ginger Snaps star is making another big splash on the horror scene as the titular character in the Soska Sisters’ new film American Mary (review). Isabelle plays Mary with a dark, edgy and intoxicating flare. She effortlessly makes the role her own and has left a lasting impression on those who’ve had the opportunity to see the film. If you have yet to check it out, American Mary hits VOD May 16th with limited theatrical engagements beginning May 31st.
Ms. Isabelle gave us the lowdown on working with the up and coming directorial duo known as "The Twisted Twins," her deep bond with the Mary character, the duality of playing both the hero and the villain, and emerging as a feminist horror icon. She was a joy to speak with and she loves swearing. Head inside for the goods.
Those masters of the "summer blockbuster rip-off," The Asylum, have responded to Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim with Atlantic Rim (naturally). Jared Cohn (#HoldYourBreath) directs and, this morning, the trailer is making the rounds. You can watch it after the jump.
