The first movie adaptation of the video game Silent Hill was released in 2006, which puts six years between it and its first theatrical sequel, Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, which reaches theaters just before halloween. In the interim, the Konami video game franchise on which the movies are based has continued with new installments (Silent Hill: Downpour was released on PS3 and XBOX 360 platforms in March), but, after revealing a preview clip at the San Diego Comic-Con earlier this month, the first trailer for Revelation has arrived online via Yahoo!.
Directed by Michael J. Bassett (Solomon Kane), Revelation is based on Konami's 2003 video game sequel Silent Hill 3, and will see Sean Bean return as Silent Hill's Christopher Da Silva. He has been on the run with his daughter Heather Mason (Adelaide Clemens) in the years between the two movies, until the mysterious, creepy and fog-filled town of Silent Hill beckons Heather to return. Like the games, the original movie was an exercise in atmosphere, while the sequel looks more like an examination of the creepy and weird. Fans of the game, though, should recognize how faithful Bassett was to it. watch the trailer >> Posted 07.27.12 by Ryan
Open Road Films is clearly an intelligent and intuitive company, scheduling their panel after the one for Django Unchained and before Warner Bros.' panel for The Hobbit, Man of Steel and Pacific Rim. The line for Hall H that day was the longest of the entire convention, with many either lining up at dawn or sleeping overnight. Therefore, Open Road got a packed house for their panel presentation, which included a look at their upcoming sequel, Silent Hill: Revelation 3D.
The follow-up to 2006's Silent Hill, writer/director Michael J. Bassett based Revelation on Silent Hill 3, Konami's 2003 video game sequel. In an interview with Dread Central, Bassett revealed that audiences don't need to see original to understand the sequel. "People who are new to it will totally get it," said the director. "Even though there are some recognizable faces too. Sean Bean is back." MORE >> Posted 07.16.12 by Ryan
Russian director Sergei Bodrov's (Mongol: The Rise of Genghis Khan) new movie, Seventh Son, was first introduced at the 2011 San Diego Comic-Con during a presentation hosted by Legendary Pictures. Since that time, virtually nothing has been heard about the fantasy action adventure that stars Jeff Bridges (Crazy Heart) as an aging knight. With production currently underway, Lionsgate and Warner Bros. have finally offered a few more clues about the movie, releasing a detailed plot synopsis and a piece of concept art reminiscent of The Lord of the Rings. read the synopsis and see the concept art >> Posted 03.28.12 by BrentJS
