Check out the new poster, trailer, and some screen caps from READY PLAYER ONE!


Click on poster to enlarge.
THE PROMO MACHINE STARTS RAMPING UP FOR SPIELBERG'S "READY PLAYER ONE!" CHECK OUT THE NEW POSTER, TRAILER, AND SCREEN CAPTURES!

I've read Ernest Cline's Ready Player One cover to cover at least five or six times, and I am so on board for the film adaptation. Though I was worried to hear that Spielberg contemplated cutting out all the references to his own films, the more I see of this movie, the more comfortable I begin to feel. However, I do worry that some of my favorite moments from the book won't make it into the film due to rights issues, which probably plagued this entire production!

Set in a future where the world is polluted and in financial ruin, READY PLAYER ONE follows a kid named Wade Watts who unwittingly becomes a target by an evil corporation, and a hero to everyone else. The film bounces back and forth between the real world, and the virtual world of the O.A.S.I.S., a massive multiplayer online game where you can do, or be, anything!

Warner Bros. just released a new poster for the film (pictured top left) as well as a new trailer that divulges more of the plot and showcases a ton of Easter eggs! You can view the trailer below, as well as some screen captures I made, so you can get a closer look at some of cool stuff hiding in plain site!



Aech rides in Bigfoot and Artemis is on Kaneda's bike from AKIRA. Also, scope out that Delta City billboard in the background! ROBOCOP just may be in this film as well!! [Click on image to enlarge.]

King Kong makes an appearance!

The Iron Giant charges across the battlefield. Lasers (and lightsabers?) everywhere!
[Click image to enlarge.]

READY PLAYER ONE hits theaters on March 30th! Here's hoping it remains mostly faithful to its source material! (Spielberg, don't fail me now!)

What's that? You say you're not familiar with the book that this film is based on? Well then CLICK HERE to buy yourself a copy of it - I give it a hearty recommendation! Give it a shot, especially if you're a big fan of the 1980s pop culture!

On January 2nd, A Door to Unspeakable Horrors is opened in THE RIZEN!


NATO SCIENTISTS PUNCH A HOLE INTO ANOTHER WORLD WITH TERRIFYING CONSEQUNCES, IN MATT MITCHELL'S "THE RIZEN!" 

I just received a press release about this new indie action-horror film from director Matt Mitchell (GANGSTERS, GUNS, & ZOMBIES and IT NEVER SLEEPS) and it looks kind of cool. Look for it on VOD on January 2nd, and stay tuned for its sequel, THE RIZEN 2, sometime next year!

Synopsis: The year is 1955. NATO and the Allied Forces have been conducting secret, occult experiments in a bid to win the Arms Race. They have finally succeeded, but what they have unleashed could tear our world apart. Now one woman must lead the only other two survivors past faceless horrors that threaten to kill or capture them at every turn. They are the only ones left who can fight to close a door that should never have been opened.

THE RIZEN stars Laura Swift (THE SNOWMAN), Sally Phillips (the BRIDGET JONES series), Bruce Payne (WARLOCK III, PASSENGER 57), Julian Rhind-Tutt (LUCY), Tom Goodman Hill (EVEREST) and The Young Ones’ Adrian Edmondson!

For a closer look at the film, scope out the stills and trailer below!

TRAILER ROUND-UP: BATMAN - GOTHAM BY GASLIGHT, DAY OF THE DEAD - BLOODLINE, JURASSIC WORLD - FALLEN KINGDOM, and ONCE UPON A TIME ON CHRISTMAS!


It has been a LONG time since I last shared some new trailers, so I figured it was time to get back to it Vault Dwellers! For this edition of the News Vault's Trailer Round-Up, I selected four new previews to share with you, featuring  dinosaur rescues, killer Clauses, brainy zombies, and a new DC animated Batman adventure! Scroll down to start watching!

TRAILER #1: BATMAN - GOTHAM BY GASLIGHT (2018)
Release Date: January 23, 2018 (CLICK HERE to pre-order on Blu-ray.)


This new animated DC film is set in alternative Victorian Age Gotham City, where Batman battles the legendary Jack the Ripper! The animation style is reminiscent of Batman: The Animated Series, but don't be fooled by that because this is an R-Rated feature! DC's animated efforts are typically very well done, so I'm definitely looking forward to seeing this Elseworlds version of Batman come to life!




TRAILER #2: DAY OF THE DEAD - BLOODLINE (2018)
Release Date: January 5, 2018


January is typically where movies are released quietly to die (though there have been exceptions to that rule over the years), and it seems like that is the case with this remake of George A. Romero's DAY OF THE DEAD. Set in a world overrun by the walking (and sometimes running) dead, a group of scientists and soldiers hunker down in a military bunker and try to find a cure. However, it seems that one of their test subjects (Bub V2.0?) has become dangerously intelligent, and soon all hell breaks loose! Though it looks like it'll have some great gore, this redo of DAY seems to entirely miss the point of its predecessor. If you've got a gift card, maybe give it a whirl next month!




TRAILER #3: JURASSIC WORLD - FALLEN KINGDOM (2018)
Release Date: June 22, 2018

When a volcanic eruption threatens all of the man-made dinosaurs still living on Isla Nublar (several years after the events of JURASSIC WORLD), an organization called the Dinosaur Protection Group mobilizes to rescue the island's (not-so) prehistoric denizens. But naturally things go awry, and eventually there's running and screaming as ash, soot, lava, fire, and brimstone, rains down upon humans and dinosaurs alike! Could this be the darkest chapter of the continued Jurassic Park universe?! I guess we'll find out next June!




TRAILER #4: ONCE UPON A TIME ON CHRISTMAS (2017)
Release Date: December 12, 2017 (CLICK HERE to pre-order on DVD.)


A pair of psychopathic killers dressed as Santa and Mrs. Claus, commence a killing spree in the town of Woodridge, twelve days before Christmas! Can the authorities stop the cyclopean Santa and his Harley Quinn-esque sidekick before there's no one left in town to celebrate the holidays? This flick actually looks like it could be a fun new holiday horror flick, and I'm more than willing to give it a whirl when it comes out on DVD next Tuesday.


Well, that's it for now gang, but check back again soon for more trailers, Blu-ray announcements, movie news, and more as News Vault heads into its third year online!

Alas, this pastoral existence is short-lived thanks to a sleazy group of poachers who supply an even sleazier scientist with live animals for sadistic biological experiments.

Armed with the superweapon "Blastfighter," he goes on a bloody rampage against the poachers in this classic Italian revenge movie, also starring George Eastman (IRONMASTER, THE GRIM REAPER, RABID DOGS) and genre favorites Massimo Vanni and ZOMBI’s Ottaviano Dell’Acqua.

The GREMLINS are back in this awesome fan film!


I received a message from "Silent" Steve today with a link to GREMLINS RECALL, but didn't get a chance to watch it until ten minutes ago. All I have to say is .... WOW! This fan-made short was awesome!

GREMLINS RECALL is set in the same universe as the original films, but in a fun twist, has the Mogwai being sold on the open market as household pets! Thanks to a "miracle drug," that pesky trio of rules (i.e. No sunlight, no water, and no food after midnight) has been rendered obsolete, making the furry little critters incapable of morphing into the mean, green beasties we all love and know. But sometimes things aren't exactly as advertised, and a new breed of "Gremlin" is let loose upon a small town!

A lot of love went into this fan film, and it shows! GREMLINS RECALL features a talented cast, and relies on practical effects and puppetry to bring the creatures to life. It's a very ambitious production, and I assure you that it is worth taking ten minutes out of your busy day to give it a look. You can watch GREMLINS RECALL below for absolutely free, and follow it up with some cool behind the scenes footage of the making of the film!
