Trailer: Lockout

"Mr. President, there's been a massive takeover on space prison MS1." What more do you need in a movie? Lockout - in theaters April 13th, stars Guy Pearce as a rough-and-tumble ex-government agent who, when the president's daughter gets ki...

Alternate history narratives tend to be really absurd and out there. Iron Sky has no problem sticking true to this tradition. The general synopsis is this: There are Nazis who escaped World War II by flying into space. They plan on returni...


New Sinbad movie trilogy from Sinbad: Rogue of Mars comic

Bluewater Entertainment is at it again! They seem to have a knack for pumping out comics about hot trends and cashing in, so it was surprising to hear that they dug up the old Sinbad trilogy. Sinbad: Rogue of Mars will both continue the pr...


Trailer #2: Battle: Los Angeles

Last month I showed everyone this trailer debut for Battle: Los Angeles, the movie that has had a few legal battles of its own with Skyline. The very next day a blurry international trailer came out with foreign subtitles over the English...
