(Hopefully) Coming Soon – Drop Bears!

13 Apr

People, I bring you exciting news that a kickstarter campaign is currently running to get funding for a film about killer koala bears.

Yes, you read that right.

It’s called “Drop bears”. As you can see, the trailer shows a bunch of er…cuddly toys being thrown on hammy actors and Monty Python-style OTT sprays of blood – always a good start in my opinion! I’m not entirely sure we need an entire feature-length film of this, but then again, did we really need one about a tornado filled with sharks?

Admittedly, we might not be seeing it, as it seems unlikely that they’ll reach their target at this stage – the campaign is sitting at around 6.5k of 90k and has just 12 days to go – but you never know!

Coming Soon – Civ in Space!

Firaxis has announced a spiritual successor to Sid Meier’s Alpha Centauri, called Civilization: Beyond Earth. I played the hell out of that game when it came out – I’m definitely looking forward to this release when it arrives in the fall…

Coming Soon – Poseidon Rex

A T-Rex that swims.

A T-Rex. That swims.

This looks pretty insane – in a good way. Definitely something to keep a watchful eye out for…

And there was much rejoicing!

At a recent Horror magazine festival (Horrorhound Weekend), Alan Tudyk and Tyler Labine let slip that there will be a sequel to everyone’s favourite creepy-cabin-in-the-woods horror spoof – Tucker and Dale Vs Evil (read our review here).

The first film has attained cult status and frankly, I’ve never met a geek who didn’t love it.  While there is that ever-present worry that a sequel might fail to meet up to the standards of the original – which is highlighted by the actors themselves in the discussion panel (see the video) – I’m fairly confident that they’ll ace this one.  I can’t wait!
