Space Babes and Alien News


Yep two things that go great together.
First up for fans of 1970s sci-fi schlock, your prayers have been answered. The company Shout Factory has announced they will be releasing the 1978 Italian made cult epic Starcrash with bombshell Caroline Munro on DVD and Blu-Ray as part of their Roger Corman's Cult Classics series on September 14. You can read more about the upcoming release here http://www.dvddrive-in.com/features/starcrashpromo10.htm and see the film's trailer-complete with a lightsaber wielding David Hasslehoff-at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pzfuNSpP0RA.

Next up on a less campy note, the unofficial John Carter of Mars movie site has a brief interview with creature builder John Cox, who was hired to built a full 15 foot Thark for the previous version of the film. Some nifty photos of the full model is also shown at http://www.johncartermovie.com/cgi-bin/archive.pl?COMMAND=showarticle&num=64428

Finally some news from Planet Pandora. Cinematical has compiled two interviews with James Cameron where he talks about Avatar and his upcoming projects. The highlights: he is working on an upcoming novel that was announced months back himself and plans to shoot the two sequels back to back. He also talks about the upcoming Avatar re-release on August 27 with additional footage and producing Guillermo Del Toro's upcoming film version of HP Lovecraft's At the Mountains of Madness. You can see both interviews at http://www.cinematical.com/2010/08/08/james-cameron-talks-avatar-sequels-novel-and-more/
