jurassic park

To celebrate the release of Jurassic World,  I'm taking a trip back to the 90's and the first Jurassic Park game released for the Sega Genesis (Megadrive in Europe). Prepare to see me OH MY GOD IT'S A T-REX.

Stop the presses, you mean to tell me that Gary Oldman and Kerri Russel are both in "Dawn of the Planet of the apes"??? There's also a full official synopsis at the link but I think we all know I've given you the important news... that you probably already knew. I should do this every day.

"Jurassic Park 4" has been pushed to "a later date" according to Universal, who declined to elaborate on exactly what that means. This gives me more time to watch the sequels, of which I have seen zero. I have seen "Carnosaur" though, which isn't canon but I think counts anyway.

The guys who brought you the Walking Dead game last year that was actually good, Telltale Games, are working on a game based on a werewolf comic book adaptation next. Here's hoping I don't have to make the choice of whether or not I have enough food to feed the small children in my care. That pretty much put me off that game for good. It was too real man, too real...

I haven't taken an informal poll on this, but am I the only person that loved "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter"? Either way, Dominic Cooper, who played a smooth talking vampire friend to Honest Abe in that film has signed on to another vampire film, Universal's "Dracula". You know, the one that isn't actually about Dracula, instead focusing on the Vlad the Impaler mythos. Either way, I hope there's an axe with silver melted onto it. (does anyone even get that reference??)

If you're lucky and say your prayers every night this week, Surprisingly, Magnolia will be handling distribution this time around. Good for them.

While everyone else and their kinky grandmother is attending HorrorHound Weekend, I will be sitting quietly in my living room, staring blankly at the June 7th release date for Noboru Iguchi's Japanese gore epic "RoboGeisha" I've marked on my 2010 Adorable Kittens calendar. Can you tell I'm pretty excited about this one? I thought so.

You know what's fishy about the launch of the official "Piranha 3D" website? No trailer. In fact, there's not a single promotional clip to be found anywhere on the page. If the studio wants me to stay interested until August 27th, they'd better deliver a theatrical trailer in HD post-haste. Pretty please. With Elizabeth Shue.
