You probably remember about The Silent City – a new web series that got funded via Kickstarter.
Today I found out that the creators of The Silent City have kept their promise and even though the launch of the web series is a little late, we can see that it was totally worth the wait. Check out the launch trailer for The Silent City before we discuss about anything else:
And now that you’ve seen the trailer, I am sure you have many words of praise for The Silent City so feel free to post your comments in the comment section below.
Personally, I think that The Silent City has the potential to become an epic hit: an indie zombie / post apocalyptic movie to show to other directors and producers and say “That’s how you do it!”
Apart from a more casual Walking Dead game that we’ll get on Facebook, fans of the TV show and the comic book series will also get a more hardcore version, the Walking Dead video game created by Telltale Games, which will be released pretty soon. And now the first ever trailer for The Walking Dead game has been released and you can check it out in a video below.
Created by animator and director Daniel M. Kanemoto, the trailer blends 2D and 3D imagery in stunning fashion as homage to the art of the original comic book world on which Telltale’s game is based. Kanemoto was asked by Telltale to create the trailer because of a “fan made” Walking Dead title sequence he had made, which can be seen at www.exmortisfilms.com.
Check out the Walking Dead video game trailer below:
Even more interesting is the fact that the developers of the game, Telltale, have also kicked off a pre-order campaign on their site, which has a pretty interesting incentive: there is a grand prize that if you win, will have you “put into an episode of our The Walking Dead game as a human character and murdered gruesomely – only to be resurrected as a member of the undead and put down once and for all!” Absolutely amazing – too bad that there’s just one prize, I’m sure there will be a real fight for it.
Here’s how the winner should expect to look like a zombified, Walking Dead version of a rotting corpse:
Everything seems to be really nice when it comes to The Walking Dead video game from Telltale, don’t you think?
Usually, zombie movies mean “low budget” flicks with no real value added to them and that gets even worse for foreign zombie movies. However, I just received a trailer for an upcoming Chinese (or Japanese, can’t say for sure) zombie movie title Zombie 108. And it looks hot like hell!
Here’s the synopsis of the upcoming film: “The nuclear disaster that Japan suffered accidentally alters the genes of the influenza virus. A group of young people get infected and haven’t paid any attention to their illness, until a boy surprisingly bites a girl’s throat in a drunken night out. Their friends start screaming at the gushing blood. After the viral event, the government orders to quarantine the sick and evacuate all residents in the vicinity. But those drunk party people are not aware of this message. Meanwhile, the army and the police join hands to form a SWAT team to enter the quarantined zone. Those survivors suddenly become zombies to attack the living. In no time, the whole city is film with such huge bloodshed. People from all walks of life – including gangsters, policemen, SWAT teams and the civilians – are willing to work together to escape, but they have hidden schemes to compete with and they may even kill each other.” (you gotta love the Engrish, too!)
Unfortunately, no extra information was available about Zombie 108 and the movie is not featured on IMDB, but it sure looks like one hell of a project with a pretty big budget too – so if you find let, let me know where so that I can see it too!
‘Woo! A zombie movie with Colin Farrel!’ – this is what I first thought when I stumbled upon Osombie: The Axis of Evil Dead.
Something was not making sense though and after looking closer at the trailer and the details, I realized that Osombie: The Axis of Evil Dead is not actually starring Colin Farrel, but Corey Sevier, a guy that totally looks like the Colin.
The good thing is that this made me look closer and pay a bit more attention to Osombie: The Axis of Evil Dead and I realized that it looks a lot better than most of your indie and usually crap zombie movies: despite it’s hilarious and kind of stupid premise – Bin Laden is coming back from the dead as a zombie and he has to be killed… again together with his army of zombie terrorists, Osombie seems like a very solid project with good special effects, intense atmosphere and some really good looking zombies. I am surprised.
