From The Press Release:

Skybound is proud to announce OUTCAST, from Robert Kirkman and Paul Azaceta!

Outcast is the story of Kyle Barnes, a young man who has been plagued by possession since he was a child. Now an adult, he embarks on a journey to find answers, but what he uncovers could mean the end of life on Earth as we know it.

Slated to come out early 2014 as a monthly comic release, Robert Kirkman promises a dramatic, realistic horror concept similar to THE WALKING DEAD. Fox International is currently developing a potential television series with Kirkman based off Outcast, which he has been working on for over 2 years. Despite his recent involvement in TV, Kirkman reassured us, “I still love comics, that is my main focus.”

VIDEO: A SECOND CLIP FROM THE POSSESSION: WHERE’S MY BOX

A second clip has been released for Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert, in association with Lionsgate’s, THE POSSESSION titled “Where’s My Box?”. While not as incredibly creepy as the first clip, it gives insight into the dibbuk’s possession over the girl. Check it out below.

Directed by Ole Bornedal, and due for release this Friday, August 31st, 2012. Starring Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Kyra Sedgwick, Madison Davenport, and Natasha Calis, the film (formerly THE DIBBUK BOX) is inspired by a 2004 Los Angeles Times story about a Jewish demon, or dibbuk, jinx box that went up for auction on eBay.

SYNOPSIS:

One family must unite in order to survive the wrath of an unspeakable evil. Clyde (Morgan) and Stephanie Brenek (Sedgwick) see little cause for alarm when their youngest daughter Em becomes oddly obsessed with an antique wooden box she purchased at a yard sale. But as Em’s behavior becomes increasingly erratic, the couple fears the presence of a malevolent force in their midst, only to discover that the box was built to contain a dibbuk, a dislocated spirit that inhabits and ultimately devours its human host.

LIONSGATE EXPLORES THE DIBBUK IN A FEATURETTE FOR THE POSSESSION

THE POSSESSION, Directed by Ole Bornedal, and due for release on August 31st, 2012. Starring Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Kyra Sedgwick, Madison Davenport, and Natasha Calis, the film (formerly THE DIBBUK BOX) is inspired by a 2004 Los Angeles Times story about a Jewish demon, or dibbuk, jinx box that went up for auction on eBay. But what is a Dibbuk exactly? All we know thus far is that it is, in Jewish lore, a type of malevolent demon. Now, Lionsgate, in preparation for the release of THE POSSESSION in just under a week has released a 3 minute featurette explaining in detail just what the Dibbuk is and what it represents.

CHECK OUT THE FIRST NEW CLIP FROM THE POSSESSION

ITALIAN SPECIAL EFFECTS MASTER CARLO RAMBALDI DEAD AT 86

MILAN — Carlo Rambaldi, a special effects master and three-time Oscar winner known as the father of E.T.: THE EXTRA TERRESTRIAL, died Friday in southern Italy after a long illness, Italian news media reported. He was 86.

Rambaldi, a wizard of a discipline known as mechatronics — which combines disciplines including mechanical, electronic and system design engineering — did not hide a disdain for computerized effects.

“Digital costs around eight times as much as mechatronics,” Rambaldi was quoted by the Rome daily La Repubblica as having once said. “E.T. cost a million dollars and we created it in three months. If we wanted to do the same thing with computers, it would take at least 200 people a minimum of five months.”

Rambaldi won visual effects Oscars for Steven Spielberg’s 1982 blockbuster E.T., Ridley Scott’s film ALIEN in 1979, and John Guillermin’s KING KONG in 1976. Rambaldi was born in 1925 in the northern Italian region of Emilia-Romagna and graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna in 1951. While he dreamed of becoming an artist, he was drawn into the world of cinema when he was asked to create a dragon for a low-budget science fiction movie in 1956.

He’ll be forever known to the entire world as the man who fathered the alien in Steven Spielberg’s E.T., but we horror fans will also remember him for creating the Alien head in ALIEN, creating the werewolf suit in Stephen King’s SILVER BULLET, the gooey demon from 1982’s POSSESSION, the aliens from CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND, the gore effects for Argento’s DEEP RED, the hand from THE HAND. His credits are many and varied, and he will be missed…

NEW 60 SECOND TV SPOT FOR THE POSSESSION

As the release date for the Sam Raimi & Rob Tapert produced THE POSSESSION nears, we’ll probably be seeing more television spots in anticipation of the film. The first one has finally hit and it really brings the terror. I’d go so far as to say that they fit more horror in this 60 second spot than the trailer.

Directed by Ole Bornedal, and due for release on August 31st, 2012. Starring Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Kyra Sedgwick, Madison Davenport, and Natasha Calis, the film (formerly THE DIBBUK BOX) is inspired by a 2004 Los Angeles Times story about a Jewish demon, or dibbuk, jinx box that went up for auction on eBay.

SYNOPSIS:

NEW POSTER HITS THE WEB FOR LIONSGATE’S THE POSSESSION

As the release date for the Sam Raimi & Rob Tapert produced THE POSSESSION nears, we’ll probably be seeing more art and stills in anticipation of the film. Below is the newest one sheet Lionsgate has released on its facebook page. I can’t really say it’s scoring any points for originality. The original was much better. This lastest poster seems a bit too reminiscent of the art for THE HAUNTING IN CONNECTICUT. But I suppose that’s the trend now when it comes to possessed kids…strange things spewing out of their mouths. Whatever happened to pea soup?

Directed by Ole Bornedal, and due for release on August 31st, 2012. Starring Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Kyra Sedgwick, Madison Davenport, and Natasha Calis, the film (formerly THE DIBBUK BOX) is inspired by a 2004 Los Angeles Times story about a Jewish demon, or dibbuk, jinx box that went up for auction on eBay.
