Phantasm 5 has a poster

Phantasm has always been a favourite horror series of mine, and the ‘Spheres’ are an instant classic horror tool the minute they arrive on screen. The four films that have been released to date are some of the craziest off-the-wall horror films of any generation, i mean how many films have demon midget’s travelling through interdimensional portals transporting corpses in barrells? Not many i can guarantee you that.

So imagine my surprise when Don Coscarelli keeps mentioning a fifth installment and then all of the sudden the following poster just arrives online.

According to a source the film has also already been shot- which would be insane. So should we expect a trailer soon, or an official announcement I would like to think so.

As for the real question- will Angus Scrimm be back as the Tall man? Im not so sure as he is now 87, but id like to think that Phantasm can’t take place without him- and according to the source all of ‘the gang’ should return. I guess time will tell.

Gotham Officially Reveals Robin Lord Taylor As Oswald Cobblepot, AKA The Penguin

Following their reveals of Donal Logue as Detective Harvey Bullock, Camren Bicondova as Selina Kyle and Sean Pertwee as Alfred Pennyworth, Fox and Warner Bros. Television have now debuted the first official look at Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot, aka The Penguin.

“Oswald Cobblepot/aka The Penguin has the brains of a chess grandmaster and the morals of a jackal,” the character’s official description reads, “A low-level psychopath for gangster Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith), he hides his sadistic lust for power behind an exquisitely polite demeanor.”

Starring Ben McKenzie in the lead role, “Gotham” is an origin story of the great DC Comics super villains and vigilantes, revealing an entirely new chapter that has never been told. From executive producer/writer Bruno Heller (“The Mentalist,” “Rome”), “Gotham” follows one cop’s rise through a dangerously corrupt city teetering on the edge of evil and chronicles the birth of one of the…

Fox working on Prometheus Sequel

Prometheus-2

 

Fox Announced last week that they were working on a secret project- well its now been revealed that the project is indeed a sequel to 2012’s Prometheus. This film will once again be directed by Ridley Scott- once he has finished his duties on the new Blade Runner, and should take place directly after the first film.

The first film received mixed reviews and i can fully understand why, although i enjoyed the movie until right at the end. However with the end of the first film it was always open for a sequel, and hopeful and actual ending that leads to the space jockey chair from Alien- not just a silly tease this time.

No cast has yet been confirmed and nothing else is known about the project, but stay tuned for more news.
