Beyond Fest, the world genre film festival dedicated to delivering the best in horror, sci-fi, fantasy and badass cinema, enters its fourth year this year at the Egyptian Theater in Los Angeles. Presented by American Cinematheque, Meltdown Comics, Death Walts Records and the Alamo Drafthouse, Beyond Fest is the highest attended genre film festival in the US and features special screenings of movies new and old. This year saw James Gunn in conversation with Kurt Russell discussing Big Trouble in Little China, The Composer’s Cut of The Beyond, George A Romero’s Martin and new offerings like The Monster, In the Valley of Violence, The Autopsy of Jane Doe and many more.
A few weeks back we brought you the first images from The Strangers and Mockingbird director Bryan Bertino’s latest, The Monster. Now, comes the first trailer that shows, what appears to be a monster movie to its core. The Monster stars Zoe Kazan, Ella Ballentine, and Scott Speedman.
Meanwhile, movie nerd and horror fan Jordan Peele finally has a trailer for his feature debut, Get Out. Starring Daniel Kaluuya, Allison Williams, Catherine Keener and Bradley Whitford, Get Out sees a young African American man visit his Caucasian girlfriend’s cursed family estate.
One of my most anticipated movies of 2017 is Matt Reeves latest installment of the Planet of the Apes franchise, War For The Planet of the Apes. Andy Serkis is back as Caesar and while the teaser released online last week is sparse, more details were shown and discussed with the New York Comic Con panel.
According to the AV Club, Reeves revealed that War takes place two years after the events of Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, in which Caesar killed his anti-human compatriot Koba (Toby Kebbell). Caesar’s now a battle-hardened version of the hero—with shades of “badass Clint Eastwood,” as Reeves described him at the panel—and he’s starting to share some of Koba’s beliefs about his foes. In an unfinished scene shown to the Comic Con audience, Caesar and his cohort come across an abandoned girl, unable to speak. While the orangutan Maurice (Karin Konoval) wants to bring her with them, Caesar is reluctant. Maurice ends up winning, and the child, played by Amiah Miller, ends up being a “major part of the film,” Reeves told us. (The footage shown was unfinished, giving attendees a window in the mo-cap process—from Serkis in dots on a horse to a crude animation to a more recognizable ape.)”
What’s In The Box?!:
Fans of Charlie Brooker’s British series Black Mirror finally got a trailer for the latest six episodes of the show due to hit Netflix on October 21. Despite being a new endeavor for the streaming service, based on this first look, it would appear that much of the show’s original DNA has remained in tact. The third season of Black Mirror sees directing efforts by Dan Trachtenberg, James Watkins and Joe Wright, just to name a few, and stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Bryce Dallas Howard, Wyatt Russell and more.
All hail to the king! Ash vs Evil Dead has officially been renewed for a third season. Revealed to the crowd at New York Comic Con, if last weeks episode The Morgue, the Starz horror-comedy series has no signs of slowing down and the cast seems to really be hitting their groove with one another. While speaking to a packed house at Fantastic Fest, Bruce declared that if it were up to him, the show would run for seven seasons, hinting he is not sick of donning the chainsaw quite yet. Don’t miss Collider’s Ash vs Evil Dead after show, #AfterAsh, every Sunday right here on Collider Video.
Outcast, one of the most under-watched and underappreciated shows of this year, will return to Cinemax in 2017. Based on the graphic novel by Robert Kirkman and starring Patrick Fugit, Phillip Glennester, Reg E Cathy, Wrenn Schmidt and Brent Spiner, Outcast premiered a first look at its sophomore season this year at NYCC and it does not disappoint. As Kyle Barns, his daughter Amber, and his sister Megan must deal with the repercussions of the events of last season we see the team divided and losing the battle with the evil forces who threaten to take over all of their loved ones. The clip also sees Fugit’s Kyle Barnes reunited with Gabriel Bateman, the child who plays Joshua in the stunning pilot episode.
