The movie will be released on dvd August 24.
It’s been a quiet few weeks here at Disaster Movie World, for which I apologize to any regular readers out there. Been having some other, real-life things on my mind lately, but am now aiming to get back in the saddle with regular updates again.
And why not begin with the news from the hard-working team at The Asylum that principal photography has wrapped on Titanic 2. Yes, the concept finally moves from old joke to actual movie. According to the synopsis on the official site:
On the 100th anniversary of the original voyage, a modern luxury liner christened “Titanic 2,” follows the path of its namesake. But when a tsunami hurls an ice berg into the new ship’s path, the passengers and crew must fight to avoid a similar fate.
Seems like an obvious must-see for a disaster movie fan. Street date is August 24.
Tomorrow I’ll post a fresh film review. Remember to check in if you’re into blimps and nazis…
Directed by: Anthony Fankhauser
Starring: Brian Krause, Heather McComb, Najarra Townsend, Allura Lee, Alan Poe, Londale Theus
The Asylum would obviously have been remiss in their duties if they hadn’t attempted to cash in on the hype surrounding Roland Emmerich’s 2012. They did so with 2012: Supernova, which manages to offer not only the threat of global devastation but spices things up with terrorists, randy hillbillies and drunk scientists. Hold on to your hats, folks — we’re off to Asylumland.
This time, we can look forward to some Meteor Apocalypse. Joe Lando stars alongside Claudia Christian, whom I liked a lot during her stint as Cmdr. Ivanova on Babylon 5 years ago. The story:
A gigantic meteor enters Earth’s orbit and begins to disintegrate, showering the entire planet with debris.
And what’s that at the top of the poster? Why, yes, it’s a quote from Revelations. Turns out Meteor Apocalypse is released through Asylum’s subdivision Faith Films, so there might be quite a bit of religion thrown in with the mayhem. Buyer beware.
Street date is February 23rd.
Directed by: David Michael Latt
Starring: Brittany Murphy, Eriq La Salle, Bruce Davison, Justin Hartley, Paul Logan
Mockbuster producers The Asylum proudly proclaimed that their Syfy original movie Megafault is their biggest production to date. What you have to keep in mind is that that’s not really saying much at all. Sure, there are a couple of recognizable names in this one, along with very many explosions, but it’s still a bargain bin production.
The Asylum keeps grinding ’em out. Hot on the heels of Megafault – which I still haven’t had the opportunity to see – comes 2012: Supernova. This one is a disaster flick with more of a science fiction flavor: As a star in “a nearby galaxy” goes supernova and threatens Earth (I’m smelling some possible scientific implausibilities already), our heroes will have to come up with a way to save us from the wave of lethal radiation.
To be released October 26. Official info over at theasylum.cc.
