News / January Jones thinks she's canned from X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST?
« on: January 29, 2013, 12:20:30 AM »
Poor old January, she says "“I don’t know that I’m in it, I don’t think Emma’s in this one. It’s called Days of Future Past I think, and I think it’s more about James [McAvoy] and Michael [Fassbender] and then Patrick [Stewart] and Ian [McKellan]."

The well-respected Doctor Who fansite Blogtor Who published, just minutes ago, a compilation of rumours regarding next year’s 50th anniversary special. And then pretty much immediately deleted them.

News / Why the 2012 World Fantasy awards are a flipping mega-triumph!
« on: November 09, 2012, 04:13:48 AM »
When Osama crushed Stephen King's 11/22/63 at this year's World Fantasy awards, it was not only a super win for Lavie Tidhar, but a large victory for his small book-publisher, PS Publishing, also.

Amazon Studios, the original content arm of Amazon.com, Inc., has optioned the rights to author Ania Ahlborn’s horror novel SEED – a top seller of 47North – the science fiction, fantasy, and horror imprint of Amazon Publishing.

Amazon Studios has added the project to its development slate and will begin testing various big screen adaptations of the spine-tingling Southern gothic suspense tale of an ordinary man with a demon on his back. The move to option a novel in circulation is a first for Amazon Studios, which up to this point has optioned only movie scripts and episodic series projects submitted to Amazon Studios.

“Our primary objective at Amazon Studios is to develop great, commercial projects that our customers love,” said Roy Price, Director, Amazon Studios. “Ania Ahlborn’s SEED has been a top seller for Amazon Publishing’s 47North so we already have a sense of the mainstream attraction of the story and are excited to keep the project in-house for movie development.”

Released in mid-2011 as a self-published title, SEED was quick to gain recognition and praise among lovers of horror. Called ‘bold,’ ‘daring,’ and ‘unflinching,’ SEED reached the #1 spot on Amazon’s bestselling horror list by nothing more than word-of-mouth. SEED was re-released in 2012 after Ahlborn restructured certain plot points and added over six thousand words to the manuscript.

Amazon Studios recently hosted a trailer contest allowing fans the opportunity to create the official SEED book trailer and awarded $3,000 to the winning trailer “Grinning Demons,” as selected by the author Ania Ahlborn. Ahlborn’s second book, The Neighbors, comes out November 27.

With nothing but the clothes on his back—and something horrific snapping at his heels—Jack Winter fled his rural Georgia home when he was still just a boy. Watching the world he knew vanish in a trucker’s rearview mirror, he thought he was leaving an unspeakable nightmare behind forever. But years later, the bright new future he’s built suddenly turns pitch black, as something fiendishly familiar looms dead ahead.

When Jack, his wife Aimee, and their two small children survive a violent car crash, it seems like a miracle. But Jack knows what he saw on the road that night, and it wasn’t divine intervention. The profound evil from his past won’t let them die…at least not quickly. It’s back, and it’s hungry; ready to make Jack pay for running, to work its malignant magic on his angelic youngest daughter, and to whisper a chilling promise: I’ve always been here, and I’ll never leave.

AGENT SKYE | This late-20s woman sounds like a dream: fun, smart, caring and confident – with an ability to get the upper hand by using her wit and charm.

AGENT GRANT WARD | Quite the physical specimen and “cool under fire,” he sometimes botches interpersonal relations. He’s a quiet one with a bit of a temper, but he’s the kind of guy that grows on you.

AGENT ALTHEA RICE | Also known as “The Calvary,” this hard-core soldier has crazy skills when it comes to weapons and being a pilot. But her experiences have left her very quiet and a little damaged.

We don't know what 1952 is about. We don't know when it'll come out. It's really just an educated guess that it's science fiction at all.

I guess they remind us of the dinosaurs that used to chase us around back in the stone age when we were cave men!

So, if the water aliens are at the bottom of that deep sea trench on Earth, where are the ambassadors for the Na'vi living - the Amazon jungle?
