So, there IS another Riddick film planned, and I can’t quite figure out where it falls in the chronological order of the mythos. It looks more like a sequel to Pitch Black, where Riddick has to fight off both scary night-based predators as well as a rather large group of well-armed bounty hunters.
After reading some youtube comments (which I know is not a great way to glean facts, but it’s all I have to go off of) some are saying that this film takes place after the Chronicles of Riddick, but others are saying that this film occurs between the first and second film.
Wherever the true story is, it looks promising. I’m sure we will all learn more the closer the movie makes it to completion.
It’s not necessarily ‘new’ news, but it is sad nonetheless. After being resurrected from the dead by Comedy Central in 2010, Futurama is once again headed to gray, static pastures. It will continue its last ordered season – the seventh – and then will cease to exist once more.
Futurama originally aired on Fox from 1999-2003, and then was revived through the awesomeness that is the Adult Swim programming block on Cartoon Network from 2004-2007. Does anyone else remember the Futurama episodes? I want to say that they appeared in the first hour timeslot on weekdays, where King of the Hill currently sits.
I am a HUGE fan of Futurama, and I like it considerably more than the 20+ year old behemoth that is The Simpsons (although I do like the show, I just don’t follow it). Maybe us fans can make enough noise to save it, or at least get another home for this truly transcendental animated series.
Fantasm analyzes the tight-knit community that attends horror conventions in an exploration of how the genre brings fans together. “Fantasm was filmed over six conventions, and I felt myself growing closer and closer to the genre that we all love so much,” says Kuchta. “It means a lot to be able to share that love with people, and that’s what Fantasm is all about.”
In addition to a variety of devoted fans, Fantasm features insight from popular horror actors and filmmakers, including Heather Langenkamp (A Nightmare on Elm Street), Tom Atkins (Escape from New York), Joe Lynch (Wrong Turn 2), Amanda Wyss (A Nightmare on Elm Street), Lloyd Kaufman (The Toxic Avenger) and more.
With production complete, Kuchta is currently focused on editing Fantasm. The documentary will be submitted to film festivals in the fall, with an official premiere to be announced. An abridged version of the film will screen for free at Syracuse University’s Shemin Auditorium as part of the school’s Class of 2013 Film Showcase on May 4th.
