The show, which will star Erinn Hayes and Rob Huebel, comes from the makers of the Adult Swim comedy Childrens Hospital, which also starred Hayes and Huebel. It follows a pair of doctors helping to find the cure for a deadly virus.

Rampage is what happens when you combine the monsters of Kong: Skull Island and Godzilla with the motion-capture effects of the Planet of the Apes franchise, and then add The Rock because why the heck not?! Rampage is exactly the type of movie you you want to watch on a way too cold Spring day. Films like this should be pictured in the dictionary next to the phrase “Popcorn Movie” and this is a perfect way to ignore the stress of life for 2 hours and turn your brain off. This is the Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and giant monsters. If you read that and stop to think, you’re already working too hard.
Warner Bros. Pictures has released the first trailer for New Line Cinema’s Rampage, which stars Dwayne Johnson, Naomie Harris, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Malin Akerman, Joe Manganiello, Jake Lacy, Marley Shelton, P.J. Byrne, Jack Quaid, and Matt Gerald, and is directed by Brad Peyton.
The movie is based on the classic arcade game of the same name, in which players took control of giant monsters and attempted to do as much damage to cities as possible. You can check out the trailer below, along with a poster for the movie and a synopsis.

A friend of mine sent me the trailer to The Final Girls on Facebook with the message, “It’s like Last Action Hero as a horror movie!” So obviously I was intrigued immediately. I was excited when I went to NYCC and sat in the panel for this film, with director Todd Strauss-Schulson (Harold & Kumar 3), and star Malin Akerman (Watchmen, The Heartbreak Kid, etc.) They discussed how this isn’t a traditional horror movie, but rather a movie about coping with the loss of a parent, and how you’d react if you had one more chance to be with them… that, inside an 80s slasher setting with a Jason Voorhees style killer chasing them. What we end up with, is a movie that at times was as goofball funny as Tucker & Dale vs. Evil, while managing to evoke real heartfelt emotion. It makes The Final Girls a truly unique film.
The Final Girls trailer was sent to me by a friend as “Last Action Hero, the horror movie!” Today, I got in for The Finals Girls panel at New York Comic-Con with director Todd Strauss-Schulson (A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas) and star Malin Akerman (Watchmen, The Trophy Wife).
The film, which is opening this weekend, is about a girl whose mother (Akerman) was a B-movie scream queen in the 80s. “Was” as in she is now passed on, and Max (Taissa Farmiga, American Horror Story) and friends are attending a tribute screening of her famous slasher film, when they are all sucked into the screen and into the film. Soon they are the counselors at “Camp Bloodbath” trying to escape a cliche horror villain (think Jason Voorhees). Now armed with a wealth of knowledge on how to survive these movies, Max and her friends must try to last till the end credits, all the while trying to save her mother.
