A little early in the day for Box Office numbers, but that link will be correct at some point today and I will add the screenshot later. Sorry about missing a couple of weeks due to vacation.

I'm really excited to be working press for the Godfather of Gore Hershall Gordon Lewis' new film, Zombificador. It's an old school horror anthology with tons of gore and practical effects. Not only is the legendary horror filmmaker directing it, but genre favorites Bill Moseley (The Devil’s Rejects, Repo! The Genetic Opera), Michael Berryman (The Hills Have Eyes, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest) and Todd Farmer (My Bloody Valentine, Jason X) are attached to star. They're currently running an Indiegogo campaign to raise the budget.

If you're interesting, check out the full press release.

So glad Dumber and Dumber To is dropped. Hope it doesn't get made ever.

Most unsurprising news is the Man of Steel sequel. Of course there will be a sequel. And probably a 3rd film, too.

This Is The End and Man Of Steel were great. Now, I'm patiently waiting for Only God Forgives.

It's so weird seeing Only God Forgives getting pretty much universally panned. Hoping I won't feel the same way.

I definitely want Purge sequels. There's so much they can do with this plot, so I'd love to see a different director, a different direction in the upcoming sequels.

it will get picked up somewhere - it was dropped because of the stupid magician movie that bombed with Carell and Carrey.

Did anyone else not like Man of Steel? Don't understand all the glowing reviews it's getting. I was bored stiff in the theater.
