Joss Whedon‘s Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) has finally greenlit an official synopsis included below. The title alone reveals that Ultron will be the main Marvel super villain but what else will happen? Avengers: Age of Ultron releases in movie theaters this May 1, 2015 with an all-star cast including Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, James Spader, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson.
Universal Pictures will unleash vampires in Dracula Untold (2014) this October 10, 2014 and I am already stoked to see this new vampire film. Luke Evans delivers a great performance in almost every movie he ever stars in and playing the legendary vampire Dracula is going to be a real treat. This new poster features Dracula, played by Luke Evans, in all his greatness with a little CGI bat-morphing action. Gary Shore directs Sarah Gadon, Dominic Cooper, Samantha Barks and Diarmaid Murtagh.
The Vicious Brothers have been teasing us with some really great trailers for Extraterrestrial (2014) and today we have the new movie poster. Extraterrestrial hits VOD this upcoming October 17, 2014 with a theatrical release date of November 21, 2014. Extraterrestrial is directed by Colin Minihan with Brittany Allen, Freddie Stroma and Melanie Papalia leading the cast.
Game developer Scott Cawthon just released a new image that teases a sequel to Five Nights at Freddy’s. This new horror game is sweeping the internet right now. This game is very simple in nature but terrifying when you play it because these Chuck Cheese type animatronic monsters come for you, the night guardsman, at night and you can only enclose yourself in the security room until power runs out. Closing the room doors, turning on the lights right outside your room and I believe checking the cameras drains energy and when the power runs out, your room opens, then game over. You can purchase Five Nights at Freddy’s on Steam right now for $5.
On October 23, 2014 Magnet Releasing releases the new horror anthology V/H/S: Viral (2014). The tagline for the poster is “Mayhem Goes Viral.” Directors of the new V/H/S movie include Justin Benson, Gregg Bishop, Todd Lincoln, Aaron Moorhead, Marcel Sarmiento and Nacho Vigalondo. Maybe it is personal preference but I enjoyed the V/H/S movie more than I did The ABCs of Death (2012) horror anthology.
New Underworld: Next Generation (Underworld 5 / Underworld Reboot) already cast India Eisley a few weeks ago and we have now learned that Theo James (Divergent (2014)) will play the main character in this new Underworld film. Theo James played David in Underworld: Awakening (2012) and his character has been escalated to the main character, not to sure about this from my POV. This Underworld film will not be a complete reboot like we originally thought but will be another character focus story. Writing the Underworld: Next Generation will be Cory Goodman (Priest (2011), and the screenplay for The Last Witch Hunter with Vin Diesel and Elijah Wood).
Techland‘s new survival horror game Dying Light will release this upcoming January 27, 2015 for the Xbox 360, Xbox One, Playstation 3 (PS3), Playstation 4 (PS4) and PC. I cannot wait to play this action zombie game where you must outrun zombie hordes. The release date was pushed back to iron out any bugs and increase the smoothness (framerates) of the action sequences in-game.
Jennifer Kent‘s The Babadook (2014) is one Australian horror movie that I am really looking forward to watching soon.

Cast in The Babadook are Essie Davis, Noah Wiseman, Daniel Henshall, Hayley McElhinney, Barbara West and Ben Winspear.
