Don't rip off Michael Bay. He'll probably come to your house to give you a fistful of "awesome," plus his stuff is already watered-down enough. Meanwhile, another film shows how Waterworld should have been filmed.
From the minds behind The Terminators, comes another quick-and-fun rip-off film: The Transmorphers: Fall Of Man. It even goes as far as to slightly copy Bay's' "The Fallen" title from the Transformers sequel. I forsee angry Bayhem being unleashed on the masses. But even worse, they've dragged Bruce Boxleitner into staring in the flick. Basically Transmorphers: Fall Of Man is about a group of "transmorphing" aliens that invade Earth and the humans are forced underground to plan their counter attack. (We featured a clip from the original Transmorphers film here.)
Production is wrapped and the film will be released June 23, so yeah it will probably be held together with tape, chewing gum, and a prayer.
Also from Asylum are stills from the new flick The Land That Time Forgot, and if you're not familiar with the story, it's about a group of humans that get shipwrecked on dinosaur island. Sadly there are no dinos in the stills.
When the world becomes one giant puddle, you'd better hope your family has a boat. Twitch pointed out Denis Rovira's Lazarus Taxon, which many of you know is the term for an organism that disappears (thought to be extinct) only to reappear much later. The story follows a father and daughter over the "new sea," which covers most of the Earth after the polar caps melted; the father has to carry his sickly daughter over the waves to safety. It feels similar to The Road (or what I imagine The Road adaptation will be) but with water. I'm also equally impressed with the behind the scene still compared to the actual footage, and how the filmmaker could turn a lovely day so dark.
