Scorpions Forever and a Day Documentary banner

Scorpions – Forever and a Day
Featuring the Scorpions
Blu-ray | DVD
Directed by Katja Von Garnier
Release Date: November 27, 2015

Like any long-running rock band, there comes a time when the group must decide how long they should keep it going. Are they too old for this? Should they go out while they’re still ahead?

German heavy metal band Scorpions, who’ve been in action for over 50 years, had to make that decision in recent years, which led to a farewell world tour that lasted three years. Scorpions – Forever and a Day, an authorized documentary from director Katja Von Garnier, gives the history of the band while also documenting their farewell tour, a lengthy outing that proved that the Teutonic titans are, in fact, not ready to pack it all in.

The documentary tells the 50-year story of the Scorpions with rare footage and old photos, along with interviews with past and present band members and crew, and others, all interspersed with live concert clips.

Ridley Scott’s ‘Alien: Covenant’ Is The Start Of A New Trilogy

Alien Covenant title card

Ridley Scott has changed the Prometheus sequel in the past few months since he’s gone on the press tour for The Martian. The film has gone through a couple of title changes and has even bumped Neill Blomkamp’s Alien 5 film into an indefinite hold – though some close to the film believe that it will still be made. But while at a press conference in Australia, Scott talked a little bit about his upcoming Alien film, which he says is the start of a brand new trilogy, which pretty much confirms that Blomkamp’s Alien 5 will not be happening any time soon, if at all.

Check out what he had to say below.

New ‘Krampus’ Featurette Dives Into The Folklore
The Movie God   |  @   |  


Universal Pictures has released a new featurette for Krampus, the Christmas horror flick from Trick ‘r Treat director Michael Dougherty.

The new video briefly dives into the folklore behind Krampus, a demon-like creature who kidnaps the kids too naughty to be visited by Santa. The video also covers the way the figure is celebrated in other countries—young men will often dress up as the terrifying creature and frighten the local children on the eve of Saint Nicholas Day, though some of the costumes are no doubt scary enough to make even adults want to flee, arms flailing about—as well as some appearances in pop culture.

You can check out the new Krampus featurette below.

Horror is a genre that lends itself to anthology probably better than any; whether it be short story compilations from the greats of the genre, from Lovecraft and Poe, to Barker and King, or classic cinematic anthologies like Trilogy of Terror and Tales From the Crypt. These have paved the way for a new generation of short story style scare films. Collections like Trick ‘r Treat (2007), and the more recent V/H/S and ABC’s of Death series have provided fans of blood and gore a wealth of fun times. If you’re a fan of any of those above mentioned films, then Tales of Halloween is definitely worth your time and money.

The Movie God   |  @   |  

Jar Jar Binks "Will It Blend?"

There’s a pretty good chance that you’ve seen at least one of the Blendtec YouTube channel’s “Will It Blend?” videos, in which various items are thrown in a blender to see if the machine can handle it or not. In almost a decade many things have met their end in the blender, from iPhones, tablets, and other gadgets, to sports equipment, marbles, video games, various foods both in and out of their packaging, and so much more. To save you some time if you’ve never seen the videos, yes, they almost always blend.

In celebration of The Force Awakens finally being released next month, the newest video gives none other than infamous Star Wars character Jar Jar Binks a chance to take on the blender. Not to give away the result or anything, but it’s a video that is sure to bring a smile to fans’ faces.

‘The Little Prince’ Trailer: Jeff Bridges Reminds Us About The Importance Of Imagination

The Little Prince trailer header

Paramount Pictures has released the newest trailer for Mark Osborne‘s adaptation of The Little Prince. Based on the 1943 novel of the same name by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, this is the book’s first feature animated adaptation. It actually had its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year in an out-of-competition screening, and was eventually released a few months in France in the summer. So this is North America’s first real look at the film.

For those who are not familiar with The Little Prince, the book centers on a young girl, whose meticulous mother wants her to grow up too fast. However, their eccentric neighbor, helps the young girl take hold of her childhood by telling her the story of a boy called the “Little Prince”, whom he supposedly encountered in a desert when his plane crashed. While some may consider The Aviator a distraction, The Little Girl finds her neighbor’s story intriguing, and soon she will go on a life-changing adventure involving stars, biplanes, and a cute fox.

Check out the new trailer for The Little Prince below.

It’s the holidays. Time for cheer and giving, and of course Christmas cards, and if you are a pet owner, you are bound to give one of those with your pets in it. But as Illumination’s The Secret Life Of Pet‘s special holiday trailer will show you, not all pets are too happy about dressing for the festivities.

We’ve already seen a teaser trailer earlier this year that introduced us to some of the household pets. While you may think their homes are a reflection of their personalities, that teaser proved us wrong. Now with this holiday trailer, we are getting a look at just how interested pets can be trying to pose for a holiday shot. Check out all the fun in the new trailer below.

Honest Trailer fantastic four

So unless you’ve been living under a rock all year, you’ve heard about or bore witness to the disaster that was Fantastic Four (aka Fant4stic); a movie so bad it registered a whopping 9% on Rotten Tomatoes, and got its director basically blacklisted from Hollywood. This is what Honest Trailers were made for! Screen Junkies narrator Jon Bailey even posts the career-ruining tweet in the introduction.

Pixar’s ‘The Good Dinosaur’ Interview: Director Peter Sohn & Producer Denise Ream
eelyajekiM   |  @   |  

Pixar The Good Dinosaur

Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur has had its share of production problems throughout the years. Midway through production, Bob Peterson, who was the film’s original director, was dismissed from the project due to difficulties trying to crack the movie’s third act. But as we would soon discover, the film’s story was suffering as a whole, and ultimately it was pushed back almost a year from its original release date. While the delay can be considered overwhelmingly demoralizing, it did help in the filmmakers’ efforts to figure out the story. Soon enough, with the help of the Pixar Brain Trust, the The Good Dinosaur‘s narrative problems were fixed. Peterson was replaced by Pixar’s story artist/animator and sometime voice artist, Peter Sohn (Ratatouille, Monsters University), while Denise Ream stayed on as producer to help the Korean-American filmmaker.

Sohn and Ream talked to Geeks Of Doom and a group of our fellow journalists during the film’s press day about how emotionally draining it could be when you find out that one of the films you have been working so hard on gets hit with delays. But they also talked about how the film draws its inspiration from the great Westerns that are rarely made nowadays, as well as making The Good Dinosaur with very limited dialogue.

Check out our full interview with director Peter Sohn and producer Denise Ream here below.
