Wanna watch Mickey (Noel Clarke) from Doctor Who fight off a butt-ugly alien/monster in a storage facility? Of course you do!
What sounds like the best episode of Storage Wars ever, is actually a pretty siiiick British horror survival flick titled Storage 24. In it, Noel Clarke and 3 other Londoners face off against a ferocious fugly foe when a military plane crash wreaks havoc in a storage facility.
You can check out the bloody disgusting trailer below:
Sans the Prometheus/Inception “BRMMMM” scream sound, this trailer is a gore lovers dream. Bodies everywhere, and peoples innards being ripped out left and right. Nasty!
One of the things I like most about this trailer is the practical effects, and all of the blood and carnage that goes along with it. CG free monster flicks are few and far between these days, so it’s nice to see true creature effects.
Directed by Johannes Roberts, Storage 24 is available on VOD now, or you can wait until January 11 to catch it in theaters.
There’s no shortage of interesting genre actors in the forthcoming Star Trek sequel Into Darkness – RoboCop’sPeter Weller, former Doctor Who companion Noel Clarke, and SherlockBenedict Cumberbatch – but it seems that an early 80s horror heroine is also part of the new crew: Nightmare on Elm Street star Heather Langenkamp.
Aside from appearances in the Nightmare sequels The Dream Warriors and New Nightmare, Langenkamp has had small roles in several films and TV series, but nothing as big as that first turn as Nancy in Nightmare. As for Into Darkness, Langenkamp, while in discussion with HorrorNews.net about her new documentary I Am Nancy, says that she secured the part through one of the oldest processes known to man: nepotism.
I had the opportunity to play a small part in Star Trek, so I’m looking forward to that. I can’t tell you anything about that, but that was a thrill for me. My husband and I worked on the makeup effects for Star Trek. He designed some of them, so that’s the thing we’re looking forward to most.
Langenkamp’s husband is David LeRoy Anderson whose worked on films like Men In Black, Dawn of the Dead, and The Cabin in the Woods. In the same interview, Langenkamp talked abouthow her husband’s job often takes him to far flung places away from the family, but for Into Darkness, she says, it was nice to work on something together.
In the last 10 years, my husband is quite a prominent makeup effects artist, and I’ve found that he’s often going to Canada and doing jobs far away, and it was really hard on our family. I kind of teamed up with him, and I do a lot of the busy work of owning a business. I really enjoyed teaming up with him, because I really like more mundane jobs, and he’s so creative, so we complement each other a lot in our business.
So I think it’s safe to say that Langenkamp will be made-up for her part in Trek, what do you Bastards think? Can anyone say “Klingon?”
Yep, add another name to the Enterprise’s ever growing roster. Noel Clarke, who you must remember from Doctor Who as Rose’s often forgotten boyfriend, Mickey Smith (the tin dog, if you will) has been added to the cast of J.J. Abrams‘ Star Trek sequel. Just add his name somewhere next to Alice Eve and Peter Weller.
Clarke hasn’t been sitting on his ass waiting for another classic science fiction franchise to give him a ring. Since Who he’s become a BAFTA-winning filmmaker, wrote an episode of Torchwood and co-starred in Neil Marshall’s Centurion with Michael Fassbender. A movie I watched recently, it’s available to stream on Netflix, and it as well as Clarke’s performance were much better than I expected.
But let’s get to it, what will his role be in Star Trek 2? A “family man with a wife and young daughter.”
Yup, that’s it.
Because, excuse us for wanting some details.
What kind of role do you think Clarke’s character will play? Friend? Foe? Ill-fated red shirt?
