‘Cloverfield’ Spin-Off Release Date Moved Once Again; Will Now Debut in April 2018

There are very few things that you can count on in life, but one of them is that the still untitled Cloverfield 3 film (originally titled The God Particle) has once again moved its release date.  

HNN reported in July that Paramount Studios decided to move the film from October 2017 to February 2, 2018.  It was originally supposed to hit theaters in February of 2017.

In preparation for HNN’s Winter Movie Preview, Horror News Network contacted Paramount to confirm that the untitled film, with no poster or trailer with less than a month to go before its release date would indeed be released on February 2nd (and it appears that we weren’t the only ones wondering about this lack of promotional materials for the Cloverfield spin-off). read more

Trailer Released for Monster-Mash Video Game Movie ‘Rampage’

The trailer for Brad Peyton’s video game adaptation of Rampage was released today and promises all of the building smashing you remember from Bally’s coin-operated hit.

The film stars Dwayne Johnson, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Naomie Harris (Moonlight), Malin Akerman (The Watchmen), Jake Lacy (HBO’s Girls), and Joe Manganiello (True Blood).

In April, HNN reported on the plot details (as provided by SplashReport.com), stating that “Three canisters…crash land on Earth. One lands in the gorilla enclosure at the San Diego Zoo, the other in the plains of Wyoming and the last one in the Florida Everglades. The Griffin Technologies Group, headed by two siblings (Malin Akerman and Jake Lacy), tries to destroy any evidence of wrongdoing before the government finds out. It’s too late because the canisters have infected a gorilla named George, a wolf in Wyoming and an alligator. They start evolving and growing exponentially. To cover their track, the Griffin idiots decided to unleash a beacon that will make all three large animals head toward one destination: their head office located in the Willis Tower in Chicago.” read more

Director Brad Peyton Reveals Details About Monster Video Game Adaptation Rampage

Brad Peyton, the director of the upcoming film monster-mash video game adaptation Rampage, recently spoke to We Got This Covered about the tone of the film.

Peyton promises that the film, based on the original arcade game, is “…going to be a lot more emotional, a lot scarier and a lot more real than you’d expect.”  Peyton went on to say that he was “…really excited about Rampage. It’s a monster film, so the stuff that I did on Incarnate, stretching my muscles in the horror space helped. This “small, character piece” with horror in it trained me to get ready for [Rampage]. Obviously, it’s a much bigger movie and it’s meant for a broader audience, but there still horror elements, there’s still a monster movie at the core. And I get to work with Dwayne [Johnson] again, I’m so excited about it.”   read more
