Famed director for Ghost in the Shell, Mamoru Oshii's latest live action trailer is out featuring a team of kick-ass lady hunters searching for deadly sand whales over a barren wasteland Earth. Plus, robots with heart! This is Cult.
The first look at Mamoru Oshii's Assault Girls is out and filled with beautiful but deadly women hunting for prey in a washed-out world. And we mean seriously washed-out... The filter on this trailer is thick. Thanks to Nippon Cinema for alerting us to the trailer. Already I'm completely enraptured with the hunters, especially Lucifer and her little hat. I yearn for a future where film like this become the Sex And The City replacement go to banter talk: "Oh, you're such a Lucifer with your sass and spunk!" But all kidding aside, I cannot wait to see more of this film, based off his previous short of the same name.
In the aftermath of global thermonuclear war, the Earth's surface has been turned into a desert battlefield. Three beautiful female hunters: Gray (Meisa Kuroki), Lucifer (Rinko Kikuchi), and Colonel (Hinako Saeki) traverse the barren landscape armed with powerful assault rifles to fight a group of deadly sand-dwelling monsters called "sunakujira" (sand whales). When the the epic battle eventually seems to be coming to an end, the sparkle of muzzle flash dies down and assault ship flies overhead. Suddenly, a gigantic super mutation called "Madara Sunakujira" attacks.
Set in the future world of New Madrid, the futuristic story wraps around two police brothers. One of the brothers is plagued by nightmares and can't come to grips with his position in life and as a member of New Madrid's police team. Then one of them makes a terrible mistake... and that's all I got, sorry. My guess? One dies, the other loses an eye and gets his dead brothers eye, and now his brother can talk to him through the dead eye. Well, that's what I would do anyways. Check out the trailer and tell me what you suspect.
The Dark Lurking
An Aussie creature feature The Dark Lurking has released its first rough clip. Thanks to 24 Frames per second for pointing this little gem out. Looks like a Down Under combination of viral outbreaks and The Thing, but with more pus.
2017: Something has gone terribly wrong at outpost 30, a secret international research facility some five hundred meters beneath the snow blown arctic wilderness. All communications are gone, all means of escape destroyed and an extremely dangerous horde of ancient creatures is on the loose after a doorway to an unspeakable evil has been unleashed. Eight survivors, two former research patients, three SOCOM Troops, two research technicians and a cleaner barricade themselves inside a remote area of the facility with little food, almost no ammunition and little hope of rescue. Their one possible escape route is through thirteen levels of terror that will lead them to the surface. And one of them is not who they seem to be, the darkness
Will we ever be rid of robots and their infernal feelings? New film called Electronic Girl takes place in the future where the human population is so low a robot work force is built, and of course eventually there's a need for sexy pouty robot women, as is so often the case. So a little she-bot is made, and then given feelings because why not make the future sex slave learn of its own shame or what not. The robot escapes but not before putting on a costume maid outfit and growing wings. Still the look to the film is interesting enough that I'll keep tabs on it.
