Comic Con: HOUSE OF THE DEAD 2 sans Dr Boll... sniffle... that's no fun...

Hey folks, Harry here with the sequel the world was screaming for... HOUSE OF THE DEAD 2: DEAD AIM. Directed by the writer of MANSQUITO, Michael Hurst! There's no Dr Boll this time - and from the below panel - the filmmakers of this one seem to know the pain of the first film. This one has Sid Haig in it. So that's cool. Here ya go...

Went to the House of the Dead 2 panel. SOme of the actors and the director(he's british) were there. THey showed the trailer, and some scenes from the movie. What can I say?

They all had a good sense of humor about the sequel. The director said that a good thing about making a sequel to House of the Dead is that it's not like making a sequel to "The Sixth Sense", i.e There aint too much pressure b/c the first one was not a classic. Also, funny was that someone in the audience asked "Where's Uwe Boll?", and the moderator said that Mr Boll is not involved with the film. I clapped, and maybe a dozen others joined me.

It apparently will be a departure from the story of the first film, which is a good thing.

Another amusing thing mentioned is that the opening of the film will be a mislead, in that it will play like a Porky's-esqe college romp, and them become the expected zombie movie after five minutes. I think that's clever. One of the scenes they showed was actually quite powerfull. |It involved an act of bravely kind of remisinscent of one of those grim scenes in Starship Troopers(My seventh favorite movie of all time) where someone accepts their fate.

THe room was sparely filled @ the start and filled to about 2/3 full by the end.

Also, they said it will be a theatrical release in 2006.

Oh yeah, and I went to serenity. Adam Baldwin must be a nice guy b/c he emphasized at least twice how greatful he was that Mr. Whedon did not let FIrefly/Serenity die. The panel got better as it went along. At one point, when they took questions,. they asked the actors how they saw their characters dying, and Ms Baccarin said she saw Inara going out with a bang. I got it right away and damn near had a stroke it made me laugh so hard. THe rest of the audience took about 5-7 seconds.

Aw well. That's all. Gonna go to the David Lynch DUne panel tomorrow maybe.

If I wind up posted(I dunno how this shit works), call me "Lasch"

    "there was a house of the dead 1??????"

    by Thirteen 13

    Yeah there was a House of the Dead 1. It was horrible and of course had nothing to do with the video game just like the Resident Evil movies. It made like 37 dollars in box office receipts so it passed under a lot of peoples radar.

    House of the Dead

    by moviemaniac-7

    If it's the worst movie ever, as is claimed a lot, I don't know. I've seen worse. It is terrible, but it does have the worst action scene ever commited to film - with all the Bullet Time rip-offs. Damn that's crap.

    Just consider this........

    by dennett316

    House of the Dead is so bad, it still hasn't received a straight to video release in the UK yet - when shit like Cradle of Fear is deemed more worthy than your film, you know it's time for a career change.

    And regarding the Dune film John-Locke, there WAS to have been an extended release back in May, BUT David is now involved in the project. So it looks like we will get another version of the film.

    Yet one more reason when one of the Hollywood brass and/or media moans "Why are we in such a downturn now? Why aren&#39;t we selling tickets like we used to?" -You should just slap them senseless. God, they aren&#39;t even bothering to findhalfway _decent_ movies to inflict sequels on anymore...
