New trailer for SKYLINE adds a lot more clarity on the ID4-esque alien invasion story coming out in November. THRALL WORLD had some initial concerns about strength of story as it had a very ROLAND EMMERICH feel to it. But those concerns are gone with the new preview.

Directed by Colin and Greg Strause (ALIENS VS. PREDATOR: REQUIEM) and set for release on November 12, 2010, ‘SKYLINE’ stars; Eric Balfour, Scottie Thompson, Donald Faison, David Zayas and Crystal Reed.

Plot summary: After a late night party, a group of friends are awoken in the dead of the night by an eerie light beaming through the window. Like moths to a flame, the light source is drawing people outside before they suddenly vanish into the air. They soon discover an otherwordly force is swallowing the entire human population off the face of the earth. Now our band of survivors must fight for their lives as the world unravels around them.

‘SKYLINE’ Trailer, Poster, Plot Details – New Twist On Alien Invasion Hits This November

Another ID4-esque alien invasion story coming out in November. The “particles” floating around are actually humans being sucked into the giant space machine – which actually looks kind of humorous.. unless of course it’s you being sucked up.. Which doesn’t quite sound right typed.. but hey – it doesn’t quite look right in the trailer either… With any luck the story will be strong enough to lend that visual some credibility.

Directed by Colin and Greg Strause (ALIENS VS. PREDATOR: REQUIEM) and set for release on November 12, 2010, ‘SKYLINE’ stars; Eric Balfour, Scottie Thompson, Donald Faison, David Zayas and Crystal Reed.

‘SLINGERS’ Viral/Sizzle Reel Posted – Following In The Footsteps Of ‘DISTRICT 9’ And ‘PARANORMAL ACTIVITY’ – THEE Next Big Science Fiction Television Series You’ve Never Heard Of (Yet)??

December 8, 2009

Still From 'SLINGERS'


Source: Sizemore.co.uk

Maybe. But don’t look for it on television. Not yet anyways. At the very least it gets the award for thee longest THRALL WORLD headline EVER…

Following in the footsteps of ‘District 9’ and ‘Paranormal Activity’ comes ‘SLINGERS’ – a sort of interstellar OCEAN’S 11 complete with the snappy dialogue and wit of say SNATCH.

THRALL WORLD stumbled on to this “Sizzle Reel” via complete accident. It’s basically a trailer made by creator Mike Sizemore and the plan is to get picked up as a full-blown television series. The strategy mirrors the manner in which ‘DISTRICT 9’ (which started out as the short ‘ALIVE IN JOBURG’) came to the attention of Peter Jackson and – even more recently – director Fede Alvarez got noticed and had his short, ‘PANIC ATTACK’, picked up by none other than SAM RAIMI of EVIL DEAD/SPIDERMAN fame.

Plot synopsis: Slingers is set in the year 2960 A.D., following mankind’s first interplanetary war. Humanity is now clustered into a finite, but still vast section of the universe known as Enclosed Space. Humanity won the war with an aggressive alien enemy, but at a cost. The way back to Earth is now cut off by an impassable barrier – a side effect of the blast that finally pushed the enemy back.

The show takes its name from a group of people thrown together on board an experimental spacecraft that is capable of Slinging itself to any point in space. In theory it’s the only craft capable of getting home. In reality the crew are using it to carry out a series of high tech heists and get even with those who are now exploiting their positions in the post war hierarchy.

Dominic ‘DM’ Monroe, a special ops war veteran becomes the de facto leader of this small team of thieves who rail against the decision by military command to just ‘stay where they are and make the best of it’. They’re determined to get home and if that means breaking a few rules and picking up a lot of enemies along the way then so be it.

Keep up with the latest at Sizemore’s official site HERE.

Will ‘PANIC ATTACK’ Be The Next ‘DISTRICT 9’ Or ‘PARANORMAL ACTIVITY’?

December 1, 2009

Still from the 'PANIC ATTACK' short by FEDE ALVAREZ


Source: Variety

SAM RAIMI (SPIDER-MAN, EVIL DEAD) seems to think so…

Ghost House Pictures [Sam Raimi production house] has made a seven-figure deal with a Uruguayan commercials director to direct his pitch for an alien invasion film — an exceptional deal for a helmer making his feature directing debut.

Most first-time helmers make $250,000, but Fede Alvarez scored his million-dollar deal based on the heat generated by “Ataque de panico!” (Panic Attack), a four-minute, 48-second short about an apocalyptic robot attack Alvarez directed through his commercial production house for less than $500. After the short found its way to the Internet and Kanye West featured a link to the film on his blog, a 30-year old who was not on anyone’s radar outside the Uruguayan blurb market suddenly found the biggest agencies in Hollywood in a panic to sign him. That created a chain reaction of activity over two weeks that led to a trip to Hollywood, where he met with every major agency, management firm and law firm that responded to the short.

Read more HERE and watch the original short (made for a reported $500 or $5,000 depending on which source) below.
