1982’s ‘Xtro’ Coming To Blue Ray

Published

on

Back when ‘ET’ was charming audiences, ‘Xtro’ pretty much freaked out anyone when it came to their thoughts about cute little extra terrestrials who want to be our friends.

Back in 1982 the movie told the story of  Sam who, as described by the movie, is “a devoted family man who returns to Earth three years after being abducted by aliens, now possessing special powers. On his return, Sam seeks out his wife Rachel and son Tony, but discovers that his wife is now living with a man named Joe.

Rachel struggles to decide what her feelings are for the two men, while Sam’s strange behaviour begins to affect Tony in frightening ways.”

A region free release of 1982’s ‘Xtro’ is heading to Blue Ray on May 28th and, thanks to Second Sight Films and Nucleus Films, it’s coming with some awesome bonuses.

The limited edition of the Blue Ray edition will feature a rigid slipcase with both original UK theatrical and video artwork which will allow a person to choose which side will serve as the cover of the case.

Additionally, the inside will also a include digipak containing Blu-ray and CD soundtrack plus soft cover book.

But, the extras don’t stop there.

Blumhouse Drops Trailer for ‘Ma’

Published

on

Blumhouse has dropped a trailer for Universal Pictures’ ‘Ma’ starring Oscar winner Octavia Spencer.

An Australian trailer was released that gave fans a look at the strange film set to arrive on May 31st.

According to the synopsis:

“Everybody’s welcome at Ma’s. But good luck getting home safe. Oscar® winner Octavia Spencer stars as Sue Ann, a loner who keeps to herself in her quiet Ohio town. One day, she is asked by Maggie, a new teenager in town (Diana Silvers, Glass), to buy some booze for her and her friends, and Sue Ann sees the chance to make some unsuspecting, if younger, friends of her own.

She offers the kids the chance to avoid drinking and driving by hanging out in the basement of her home. But there are some house rules: One of the kids has to stay sober. Don’t curse. Never go upstairs. And call her “Ma.” But as Ma’s hospitality starts to curdle into obsession, what began as a teenage dream turns into a terrorizing nightmare, and Ma’s place goes from the best place in town to the worst place on earth.

Ma also stars Juliette Lewis (August: Osage County) as Maggie’s mom, Luke Evans (Beauty and the Beast) as a local dad, Missi Pyle (Gone Girl) as his girlfriend, and McKaley Miller (TV’s Hart of Dixie), Corey Fogelmanis (TV’s Girl Meets World), Gianni Paolo (TV’s Power) and Dante Brown (Lethal Weapon TV series) as Maggie’s friends.

From Tate Taylor, the acclaimed director of The Help and Get On Up, and blockbuster producer Jason Blum (Get Out, Halloween, The Purge series) comes a thriller anchored by a daring and unexpected performance from Spencer, one of the most powerful actors of her generation.

Ma is written by Scotty Landes (Comedy Central’s Workaholics) and Taylor, is produced by Blum for his Blumhouse Productions, by Taylor, and by John Norris (executive producer, Get On Up), and is executive produced by Spencer, Couper Samuelson, Jeanette Volturno, and Robin Fisichella.”

‘Hell Fest’ Writer Akela Cooper Writing Sequel to ‘The Nun’

Published

on

Although it was the highest grossing film in the Conjuring franchise, ‘The Nune’, which dropped last October, was absolutely horrible, in my opinion, and my review reflected those views.

Despite all of the hype and build, the film just fell short.

However, due to it’s box office success, a sequel is in the works, and a new writer is at the helm.

According to Deadline, Akela Cooper, who is known for her work on “Luke Cage,” “Grimm,” “American Horror Story,” and”Hell Fest”, will pen the script for the sequel.

Producer Peter Safran , who will return alongside James Wan to produce the sequel, teased something interesting in regards to a sequel.

“We have a really fun storyline for that teed up, so I think that’s the next one that will be written” Safran said, according to Entertainment Weekly.
