RECON 2022 North American Premiere

I'm ashamed to say I didn't have the time to catch this at the London sci-fi Festival, but I do plan to see it eventually. RECON 2022: The Mezzo Incident is a sequal to RECON 2020: The Caprini Massacre, noted by some on our message board as being a space PA (post-apocalyptic film not set on this planet). Now the film is scheduled to have it's North American premiere at the FanTasia Film Festival in Montreal, so maybe some of you guys will have the chance to check it out?

28 Months/Years Later problems?

Bloody-Discusting.com is reporting that Fox Atomic is heavily cutting back on its horror film budget. This could have repercussions on the 28 franchise and it's future. Could DVD sales make a difference? We will have to wait and see.

Update

I heard a little rumor today about Indy 4. Apparently there may be a sequence set on an old Nuke test site. Could be interesting.

Not much news at the minute, and I am about to head off on holiday for a week. Hopefully the next review (Steel Frontier!) will be up within a fortnight.

The Road - Cormac McCarthy

Lots of people have been telling me how great this book is, and when those people are outside of the group of PA fans on our message board then I know it must be making some kind of impact. I just caught this advert for the paperback release of the book. Looks like it's getting a bit of a push from the publishers here in London.

List Update

Just a brief note to say I have updated The List with a huge amount of films that were missing. Hopefully now there are very few big films missing, although I am sure there are plenty more to dig up.
