Don’t Look Now, Jurassic Park

Bits ‘n Bloody Pieces is a quick look at stuff we might have missed, viral-related promotions or items that do not necessarily warrant their own news item.

Got something weird, or a news nugget, to share that fits in with B’nBP? Send it on over to TO ME RIGHT HERE.

• Happy birthday, Kurt Russell! (Born: March 17, 1951)

• Empire premiered a new clip from the Hammer Films production Wake Wood.

• Into movies about serial killers and the hookers they kill? Well, that ball keeps on rolling, as there’s no shortage of “inspiration” out there. Filmmaker K.M. Jamison will direct the indie short film Inhumane, about Corbin Hobbs, an outcast exterminator. Details, artwork, beefcake shots of the leading man and other cast details can be found at Black Eye Films.

• A few editions ago, we presented a poster for Rec: Genesis which proved to be fan-made. Twitch landed the real deal. Update: Once again, this has proven to be fake. We’ve all gotten fooled again.

• Here’s a report from the set of Outpost: Black Sun (which we just announced today). A second assistant director says “it is about UN troops and Special Forces troops battling Nazi zombies who came back to life in the previous film. It is set in Eastern Europe in present day.”

• Everyone can settle down now. Sony dropped their lawsuit against the makers of Skyline, feeling the Strause brothers did not steal FX from Sony’s Battle: Los Angeles. Are you sure, Sony? I saw more aliens in Skyline than in your film.

• A live performance of the zombie radio drama ‘We’re Alive’ is taking place at Meltdown Comics in L.A. on April 16. For more details, visit

• Happy birthday, David Cronenberg! (Born: March 17, 1943)

• Optimum Releasing in the UK is distributing Don’t Look Now on Blu-Ray June 27 with all-new interviews, a Nicolas Roeg commentary and more.

• IDW Publishing is welcoming a comic book vet to its Jurassic Park comic book series: He’s played in some of comics’ most loved universes, and made more than a few of his own. Now, industry legendary John Byrne brings his talents to a world where science and technology meet to bring beasts of the past back to life. We’re talking, of course, about Jurassic Park! And if you thought the dinos getting off the island was the worst that could happen, think again! This issue arrives in June.

• Artwork for IDW’s Godzilla: Kingdom of the Monsters #4, also arriving in June. France is in danger when the mysterious egg that washes ashore begins to hatch, but should the military be worried about what’s inside the egg or those creepy kids who found it? Also, a community of monks has a religious experience of the 3-headed variety. And all the while, Godzilla seems hell-bent on coming to America…but hasn’t Anguirus already claimed it as his turf? Fight! Fight! Fight!

• Happy St. Patrick’s Day. Here’s an oldie but goodie.
