Gareth Evans’ New Film Looks Creepy & Wonderful.

Below is the first official trailer for a new movie called Apostle, directed by Gareth Evans, (The Raid, Godzilla), and stars Michael Sheen and Legion’s Dan Stevens.

The period, horror will be released on Netflix on October 12th and marks new territory for the martial arts director, whose body of work so far has never ventured into the world of the supernatural.

The plot of Apostle rattles along like so:

The year is 1905. Thomas Richardson travels to a remote island to rescue his sister after she’s kidnapped by a mysterious religious cult demanding a ransom for her safe return. It soon becomes clear that the cult will rue the day it baited this man, as he digs deeper and deeper into the secrets and lies upon which the commune is built.

The Weather Channel Gave The Most Terrifying Forecast Yet

As Hurricane Florence slams into Carolina’s coastline The Weather Channel broadcast a truly terrifying, realistic forecast as to the dangerous potential the storm carries.

The graphics team who put this measured and highly effective demonstration of just how life threatening a Hurricane can be pushed the envelope in weather forecasting to amazing effect.

As you can see from the video below even three feet of water in urban areas causes absolute carnage. This kind of information saves lives, preparation is everything.

FBI Evacuate Space Observatory Sparking Alien Conspiracy.

As the world ignites and turns into a ball of failure flames it’s comforting to know that alien conspiracy theories are still going strong.

However there is a very real element of mystery about this story after the FBI dramatically raided The Sunspot Solar Observatory in New Mexico. Feds swooped in on  a Blackhawk helicopter, five days ago, ordering staff out of the facility without any explanation why.

Even local law enforcement were bewildered by the closure stating: “The FBI is refusing to tell us what’s going on.There was a Blackhawk helicopter, a bunch of people around antennas and work crews on towers but nobody would tell us anything.”

The Observatory’s sole purpose is to examine the Sun but since the raid it’s been banned from doing so and its official website just reads closed until further notice. But where is the alien conspiracy in all this mess? Well many believe the federal swoop is clear evidence the Observatory has accidentally uncovered evidence of extraterrestrial life, claiming that staff at the observatory saw something they weren’t supposed to or have even made contact with an alien lifeform. Other theories on the internet, (God bless the Internet),  claim the shutdown is due to an impending massive solar flare which will fry the world’s electricity supplies or that a foreign government has hacked into the observatory and is using it to spy on America.

Whatever the paranoid explanations might be one fact remains, the Feds raided and forcibly closed an observatory and have yet to give any explanation why and until they do conspiracy theories will abound.

 

 

The Single Weirdest Movie Trailer Of 2018

I don’t even know where to begin with this. Below is the first official trailer for Death Kiss, a movie featuring a Charles Bronson lookalike. Get it? Death Kiss instead of Death Wish?

Hollywood icon Charles Bronson died in 2003 and his last movie was made in 1999 but apparently audiences of 2018 have been demanding their Bronson fix and now actor and look-a-like Róbert Kovács has stepped forward.

To be fair Kovács is Bronson’s double but that doesn’t stop me from feeling slightly uneasy about this movie which is also a direct rip-off of Death Wish, where a vigilante takes the law into his own hands and deals out his own special brand of justice to various nefarious.

Tragically the film also stars Daniel Baldwin and Richard Tyson, (the bully from Three O’Clock High), and is set for theatrical release on October 2nd.

A ton of celebrities have been sharing the fondest memories of Reynolds on social media. Here’s a few of the best. Rest easy Bandit.
