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 and see the film's trailer-complete with a lightsaber wielding David Hasslehoff-at

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

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
