As far as horror survival game adaptations go, it’s easy to see that Resident Evil has proven more successful than Silent Hill; that won’t stop a sequel to the 2006 horror thriller from coming out later this month. Director Michael J. Bassett’s Silent Hill: Revelation 3D follows nearly-18-year-old Heather Mason (Adelaide Clemens) and her father (Sean Bean) as they attempt to escape the living nightmares that plague them. When her father disappears (and for Bean, disappearing > dead), Heather becomes trapped in a demonic world and learns she’s not who she thinks she is.
Silent Hill: Revelation 3D also stars Carrie-Anne Moss, Radha Mitchell, Malcolm McDowell and Kit Harington, and opens October 26th. Hit the jump to see the posters.
The first theatrical trailer for Silent Hill: Revelation 3D has been released. The film is a sequel to 2006’s Silent Hill, and centers on a daughter and father who are on the run from dangerous forces that remain unknown to the young girl. When her father goes missing, the young girl (Adelaide Clemens) must set out to discover what happened. I’m not familiar with the video game series or the first film, but Game of Thrones fans might get a kick out of seeing Sean Bean and a clean-shaven Kit Harington. The pic also looks to have some interesting creature design, and it’s obvious from the footage that the 3D will be put to heavy use.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer, and if you missed it you can watch the first clip from the film right here. The pic also stars Carrie-Anne Moss, Malcolm McDowell, Radha Mitchell, Deborah Kara Unger, and Martin Donovan. Silent Hill: Revelation 3D opens on October 26th, 2012.
Production has recently started on Compulsion, starring Heather Graham and Carrie-Anne Moss. The film, written by Floyd Byars (Masterminds) and directed by Egidio Coccimiglio (Imaginary Grace), stars Graham as Amy, a relentless optimist who lives in an apartment adjacent to Saffron (Moss), a morose former child star. The polar opposites meet in a confrontation that resolves in an unexpected – and disturbing – way. Compulsion, now shooting in Ontario, Canada, also stars Kevin Dillon and Joe Mantegna and boasts Academy Award-winning cinematographer, Vilmos Zsigmond. Hit the jump to check out the press release.
Open Road Films announced today that they have acquired distribution rights to the sequel Silent Hill: Revelation 3D and have slated the film for release on October 26th. Adelaide Clemens stars in the film as a young girl who, on the eve of her 18th birthday, is plagued by nightmares and the disappearance of her father. She soon discovers that she’s not who she thinks she is. Radha Mitchell, Sean Bean and Deborah Kara Unger reprise their roles from the first film, and Clemens is joined by series newcomers Kit Harington (Game of Thrones), Carrie-Anne Moss, and Malclom McDowell.
I’m not exactly the biggest fan of the franchise, but I’m assuming those who enjoyed the previous entry will be happy to finally see this sequel after a six-year wait. You can check out some intriguing set photos here and here to appease you until this Halloween. Hit the jump to check out the full press release.
Today in TV casting news, we’re featuring two sci-movie heroines who are making the jump to the small screen. First up is Sigourney Weaver (Avatar), who will be making her TV series debut in USA’s Political Animals.

Carrie-Anne Moss (The Matrix) can also be seen on the small screen in the untitled CBS series pilot based on Ralph Lamb, a 1960s rodeo cowboy turned Las Vegas sheriff. Moss will play assistant district attorney Katharine O’Connell, the daughter of a local rancher and neighbor to the Lambs. The pilot also stars Dennis Quaid (The Day After Tomorrow) and Michael Chiklis (The Shield). Hit the jump for more on both pilots.

A trailer for writer/director Dennis Lee’s drama Fireflies in the Garden has landed online. Starring Ryan Reynolds, Willem Dafoe, Julia Roberts, Emily Watson, Carrie-Anne Moss, Hayden Panettiere and Shannon Lucio, the film is a semi-autobiographical tale from Lee that focuses on the tumultuous relationships within the Taylor family that are confronted after a tragic car accident kills the matriarch (Roberts).
The film was actually completed back in 2008 and is just now making its way to theaters. Given the amount of star power it contains, I wouldn’t think that bodes well for the final product. That said, I think the cut on display here is plenty effective in setting up the tension between father (Dafoe) and son (Reynolds). Check out the trailer after the jump. Fireflies in the Garden will open to select markets on October 14th.
Carrie-Anne Moss and Malcolm McDowell have joined Adelaide Clemens, Sean Bean, Kit Harington, and Radha Mitchell in the upcoming horror sequel Silent Hill: Revelation 3D. Moss and McDowell will play Claudia and Leonard Wolf, but the press release doesn’t offer any details on those characters. For those just tuning in, here’s the synopsis:
For years, Heather Mason (Clemens) and her father (Sean Bean) have been on the run, always one step ahead of dangerous forces that she doesn’t fully understand. Now on the eve of her 18th birthday, plagued by terrifying nightmares and the disappearance of her father, Heather discovers she’s not who she thinks she is. The revelation leads her deeper into a demonic world that threatens to trap her in Silent Hill forever.

While there is a decent chance you’ll one day be able to file this under “Internet movie rumors that never amounted to anything,” we’d be remiss not to at least pass this along. A report has filed in from a “Q & A” at the London International School of Performing Arts which claims that star Keanu Reeves spoke at moderate length about returning to The Matrix for two more sequels. Per the account, Reeves claims to have had lunch with The Wachowski Brothers over Christmas during which they briefed him on a two-film treatment they had finished for the Matrix franchise.
Obviously, keep in mind that the purported eye-witness account of the “Q & A” is, as of yet, unconfirmed. Nevertheless, if you’d like to here more about what Reeves purportedly had to say about reprising his role as Neo, hit the jump. [Update: It looks as if the lead in the write-up has been proven true as sources from both the Reeves camp and the London International School of Performing Arts claim the "Q & A" never even happened.]
You can keep your Snakes on a Plane. I want to see Samuel L. Jackson torture Michael Sheen for 97 minutes. Judging by the trailer for Unthinkable, it looks like I’ll get my wish. It looks like someone watched 24, cut out everything else about the show and just took the torturing-people-for-information part.
Samuel L. Jackson plays a mystery man named “H” who’s tasked with torturing the shit out of a terrorist named Younger (Sheen) in order to find three nuclear explosives placed around the U.S. The film also stars Carrie-Anne Moss, Brandon Routh, and the sounds of your laughter as you watch this trailer. Hit the jump to check it out. Apparently, it’s a straight-to-DVD flick (book) for the UK (double-boo). I want to see it. Maybe Jackson will take Sheen up on a plane and torture him with snakes. Oh, to dream the impossible dream…
