Beastie Boy Adam Yauch’s Oscilloscope Laboratories Grabs Holiday Horror ‘Rare Exports’

Oscilloscope Laboratories, the film company started by Beastie Boys member Adam Yauch, has acquired the rights to Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale, a new horror-comedy from Finland that takes childhood fantasy to a whole new realm.

The movie comes from director Jalmari Helander, who based it on his own popular short films, and tells the story of an archeological excavation that turns up none other than Santa Claus himself. Unfortunately, he’s not quite the Santa we’ve all grown up knowing from stories and songs.

Of the acquisition, Yauch said “This is really a unique film, the filmmaking exceptional, Jalmari’s sense of timing, perfect. I’m tempted to say it’s like the Coen brothers meets The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, but RARE EXPORTS is so original in its feel and approach that I’ll refrain from such comparisons and simply say: gas up your snowmobiles, load your shotguns and smoke ’em if you got ’em — ’cause we intend to uncage this sucker in theaters for the holidays.”

Fallout: New Vegas

One of the more appealing additions to gamers these days is what goodies they can get if they pre-order a game. Most know ahead of time whether or not they’re going to buy a video game, but the offer of a little extra something special that no one else who doesn’t pre-order will have is always a welcomed option.

Most of the time, a pre-order will come with a special code for an outfit or weapon to download when the game is released, but when it comes to Fallout: New Vegas, they’re offering up four different packs, each coming with four things to get your game started off right.

The four packs are being offered, as usual, depending on where you pre-order — either from GameStop, Amazon, Steam, Walmart, or Best Buy. Click on over to the other side to see what you get with each unique offer, and where you’ll be reserving your copy. These are all available in North America right now, with the rest of the world soon to follow.

Breaking Dawn

If you’ve been following the progress of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn at all, you know it’s been long-expected and long-assumed that the final chapter to the film series would be split into two films.

The move was expected as it would be in an attempt to cover as much of the story’s details as possible and of course to pile as much cash into the bank as they possibly could before the franchise’s end.

In a press release put out by Summit Entertainment today, it was finally made official: Breaking Dawn will indeed be a two-part movie. The film will go into production some time this fall, and the first of these two movies will be released in November of 2011.
