Tremors: Island Fury

Appearing as a guest on the Saved by Nostalgia podcast, Michael Gross confirmed Tremors: Island Fury is still scheduled for an October 2020 release date.

As far as I know, it’s not been pushed back, since the editing process is something that doesn’t necessarily need a full studio to work on. Universal is by and large shut down – its theme parks, its movie and television production are down and out right now – but I think this post-production is still continuing.

a world plagued by disease after climate change has forced the adoption of artificial oxygen

That makes my brain hurt. What does “artificial oxygen” even mean? Do they have a machine with hoppers for protons, electrons, and neutrons that puts them together in the right ratio? Have they inserted a plasmid into some bacteria or yeast to make it produce oxygen? Do they break a sulfur in half?

Honestly Hollywood, hire me as your technical advisor so you don’t say blindingly dumb things like this. I’ll work cheap.
