Oh boy, is this special.
Here’s a video montage mashup by movie editor Evan Gorski & film director Michael Dougherty, (Trick ‘r Treat), entitled: Everything I Need To Know To Survive Covid I Learned By Watching Sci-Fi And Horror Movies.
This is a genius take on the current pandemic situation courtesy of some nifty editing and genius clip selections. Enjoy.
If you’re a Bruce Campbell fan, or an Evil Dead fan, then you really must stop what you are doing, lock the front door, draw the blinds and bask in this brilliant trailer for Sam Raimi’s forthcoming TV series Ash Vs. Evil Dead.
Ash is indeed back battling the undead and demons with one hand and one-liners in what looks like a camp, OTT collection of episodes every horror fan will relish. The plot is set 30 years on from the original film and the old fella, even though a few pounds heavier, still has it, was there ever any doubt he had lost it?
Speaking at the show’s Comic Con panel in San Diego yesterday Campbell explained a little more about the return of his iconic character:
“He has survivor’s guilt. You could have a heyday with his PTSD. He’s a war vet. He continues being a trash-talking know-it-all who doesn’t really know anything. He’s the ultimate anti-hero. He’s kind of an idiot, but man, if I had to go to battle, I’d want to be next to that guy, because he’ll bring it if he has to.”
In news which should surprise no fan of this property Ash Vs. Evil Dead premieres this Halloween.
In an exciting official announcement there will now be a Han Solo prequel, as part of the Star Wars anthology series of movies, which will stand-alone from the forthcoming new Star Wars trilogy.
Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the duo behind The Lego Movie, 21 Jump Street and Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs, will direct the movie which will be based on a script by the legendary Lawrence Kasden, a man who previously co-wrote The Empire Strikes Back, The Return Of The Jedi and the forthcoming Force Awakens.
The Han Solo movie will be a prequel as we journey back to explore exactly how Solo ended up as the most famous space smuggler and thief in that galaxy far, far away.
The Han Solo prequel is slated fro release on May 25th, 2018.
One of the greatest movies never made by Hollywood was the insane project Superman Lives which had Tim Burton in the director’s chair with Nicolas Cage cast as Superman.
We will unfortunately never get to see what that movie would’ve looked like as development was shelved indefinitely on the project back in the 90s, but a documentary entitled The Death Of “Superman Lives”; What Happened? now opens the vault door and investigates in detail what exactly happened to the movie and why it was ultimately cancelled.
The video above features the first ten minutes of the documentary which will be available in it’s entirety on July 9th from HERE
Father’s day can be a pretty emotional day for many whose fathers are no longer with us, but for Mike Wilson it’s the perfect day to honour his late son Jayden.
Above is the rather excellent Spiderman, parkour fan film Spider Dad which Mike stars in as the title hero. As he spends his evening battling crime and purchasing nappies he also takes time out to credit his son Jayden as the inspiration for him to do great things in life.
Mike is no stranger to viral videos as his last one hit the headlines when he filmed himself surprising his son dressed as Spiderman, (watch below). Sadly Jayden passed away four weeks after the video was made due to a Grade 4 brain stem tumour, but his memory now lives on thanks to Spider Dad.
The ad revenue generated by this fan film will go directly to the charity Naomi House children’s hospice and a fund dedicated to Jayden’s memory. So get it watched, now!
Above is the hugely anitcipated short film Kung Fury in all it’s intended glory.
Back in the winter of 2013 the makers of this short produced a trailer to drum up support for their crowdfunding appeal so they could finish the feature. The campaign was launched and went viral receiving the support of 17,000 people who together gave more than $630,000 towards the project.
The plot of the short rattles along like so:
Kung Fury is an over-the-top 80’s action comedy that was crowd funded through Kickstarter. It features Kung Fury, a Kung Fu renegade cop who travels back in time to kill his Nemesis, Hitler. The film features nazis, dinosaurs, vikings and cheesy one-liners.
We’ve teamed up with the excellent movie tribute t-shirt website Stealthy Giant to promote the launch of their new t-shirt the Hi-Octane Universal Donor, inspired by the movie Mad Max: Fury Road , (featured above).

Oh what a lovely day!
Unless you live under a wasteland rock, feeding off of two headed desert lizards then you’ll know just how much praise is being heaped upon George Miller’s fourth Mad Max film Fury Road and for good reason.
Even if you’ve yet to watch this action movie masterpiece you can still wonder at the concept art for the project, samples of which have been released ahead of the launch of the official book of Fury Road concept art, which you can buy here.
Apparently 2000 AD comics artist Brendan McCarthy had that much of influence on the project through his art he landed co-writing credit on Fury Road.
This is called the Running Of The Balls, (stop it!), and is as close as you’ll ever get from experiencing that infamous Raiders Of The Lost Ark intro scene.
As much as it looks like a load of fun for the people being chased by the gigantic balls it’s as mush fun for those hitching a ride inside them.
This amazing animated short by artist Paul Johnson pays homage to the late 80s early 90s Japanese anime style TV programmes of that era.
TIE Fighter is a work of passion by Johnson and it shows. It took him four years to painstakingly hand draw the entire short. He explains:
“What if there was an Empire-focused short Star Wars animation, drawn with the crazy detail and shading of classic 80s anime that’s all but vanished from Japan nowadays? Well, I tried my best. Apologies in advance for not living up to Venus Wars standards.”
There is no need to apologise Paul. You nailed it!
