Image
Source: 20th Century Fox X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE, the first chapter in the X-Men saga, unites Wolverine with several other legends of the X-Men universe, in an epic revolution that pits the mutants against powerful forces determined to eliminate them. Hugh Jackman reprises the role that made him a superstar, as the fierce fighting machine who possesses amazing healing powers, adamantium claws, and a primal fury known as berserker rage.

DVD Art For The Land That Time Forgot

Image
Written By: Ken Hulsey Sources: The Asylum / Avery Guerra I can remember way back in 1974 when the first commercials for "The Land That Time Forgot" aired on television. (That shows you how old I am...) I vividly recall the images of the dinosaurs and the exploding volcano. I also remember thinking how 'real' the dinosaurs looked. Yeh, they were only hand puppets, come to find out, but you have to remember that for the 70s, it was pretty good looking effects wise. They didn't have 'high-fangled' computer graphics back then boys and girls. Anyway, I remember the film fondly and so do a lot of people who grew up in my generation. It should come as no surprise that when I learned that C. Thomas Howell, and The Asylum, were remaking the film, my eyes and ears perked up. Well the remake of "The Land That Time Forgot" is in full production as we speak, and a lot of people are eager to see what kind of film it's going to be. Will it follow the

Two Brand New Posters For Jennifer Lynch's Hisss

Image
Written By: Ken Hulsey Sources: Venus Distributing / Avery Guerra / Hisss Official Web Site Director Jennifer Lynch has learned that the best way to stir up a buzz about a movie is to take one of the sexiest actresses in India, namely Mallika Sherawat , and wrap her up in snakeskin. Indeed there has been quite a bit of Internet hype about Lynch's film, " Hissss ", ever since the first image of Sherawat , in her costume as the “ Ichhadahari Nagin ”, surfaced last October. Several articles have been written about the sexy Bollywood star, here grueling hours in makeup and the legend of the Nagin . If there are two things fanboys love it's monsters and sexy women, if you combine them both together, as is the case here, you have a venerable "slam-dunk" situation. It looks like Lynch has found a distributor for " Hisss " in Venus, a company located in Mumbai . The company has very little release information for the film posted on it's

Image
Written By: Ken Hulsey Source: WENN California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has finally come clean about his upcoming appearance in "Terminator Salvation." Speculation has been swirling that the actor-turned-politician would be reprising the role that shot him to international stardom in 1984, ever since he was spotted on the set of the new film by paparazzi last year. Schwarzenegger has assured the people of California, that his appearance in the much anticipated film didn't take one second of time away from his duties as governor. How did the Governator pull it off? His appearance in the film will be in the form of stock footage from the fist two "Terminator" films spliced in and CGI renderings. Schwarzenegger explains to Entertainment Weekly, "I made it very clear that I don't have the time to do the movie. I said that I would be willing to be in the movie if they get the technology together, and so they are working on that right now." &q

Mothra Song Mosura No Uta Used As Inspiration For Soy Sauce Add

Image
Source: ADi ADi, a Portland-based computer animation company, has provided the unique animation for a commercial for GOLIGHTLY Films and Yamasa Soy Sauce using ideas and themes from the Japanese "Mothra" song, Mosura No Uta. The 30 second commercial, animated by ADi and written, produced, directed and filmed by GOLIGHTLY Films, will be broadcast locally on KGW TV, and in Japan on Fuji TV. The song, which gained popularity in the U.S. on YouTube, is based on a fictional monster who is both an ally and adversary of Godzilla. Yamasa USA is headquartered in Salem, Oregon. ADi's designers brought to life a virtual world with a pop-up book appearance in a lily-pond setting. "We had a blast on this project," commented Kate Ertmann, President and Executive Producer at ADi. "We wanted to come up with a visual approach that would stand out and get noticed right away. We started by developing storyboards with the client and moving to the different elements of the a

An Early Effects Shot From Transmorphers The Fall Of Man

Image
Written By: Ken Hulsey Sources: Paul Bales / Avery Guerra With a brand-new "Transformers" movie coming out this summer, it should be expected that The Asylum would be coming out with their own film 'inspired by' the big-budget Hollywood epic, and indeed they are. The film entitled "Transmorphers: Fall of Man" features everything you would expect, robots that change shape and the like. Unlike the upcoming "Transformers" movie, "Transmorphers: Fall of Man" is a prequel. The the original "Transmorphers" (2007), takes place 300 years in the future and follows a human rebellion against a race of alien robots who have enslaved the Earth." "Transmorphers: Fall of Man" takes place in modern times, and follows the story of when the alien robots first land on Earth.The invasion forces mankind underground and the rebellion is formed. The film stars one of my favorite actors, Bruce Boxleitner, who was the shit on "Bab

The Bloody Rage Of Bigfoot - Bigfoot Revealed!

Image
Written By: Ken Hulsey Sources: James Baack / Avery Guerra Director James Baack has been really good about keeping the readers of Monster Island News updated on "The Bloody Rage Of Bigfoot", a film that the fans really seem to dig and cryptozoologists seem to loath. Regardless of which side of the fence you sit, the film certainly has spawned a great deal of interest. Baack is promising a Bigfoot horror movie like no other. Baack describes his film this way, "At this point, the film is sizing up to be kind of a mixture of 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre', 'Predator', and 'The Exorcist' all thrown into a blender and poured into a skull shaped mug." That sounds like a pretty violent brew to pour into one cup. Today Baack has sent us, yet another photo of the Bigfoot in his film. The director has titled the photo, "the first glimpse of Bigfoot." I can only assume that means it is the first time that the audience gets to see the monster
