Trailer Watch: Karen Gillan and Katee Sackhoff get scary in Oculus

Director Mike Flannigan’s Oculus premiered at TIFF last year, and it will get a US release this April.

Here’s the plot synopsis (via Twitch):

Ten years ago, tragedy struck the Russell family, leaving the lives of teenage siblings Tim and Kaylie forever changed when Tim was convicted of the brutal murder of their parents. Now in his 20s, Tim is newly released from protective custody and only wants to move on with his life; but Kaylie, still haunted by that fateful night, is convinced her parents’ deaths were caused by something else altogether: a malevolent supernatural force­­ unleashed through the Lasser Glass, an antique mirror in their childhood home. Determined to prove Tim’s innocence, Kaylie tracks down the mirror, only to learn similar deaths have befallen previous owners over the past century. With the mysterious entity now back in their hands, Tim and Kaylie soon find their hold on reality shattered by terrifying hallucinations, and realize, too late, that their childhood nightmare is beginning again…

Trailer Watch: Riddick red band Comic-Con trailer

Director David Twohy and Vin Diesel’s second attempt to turn the main character of the surprise hit sci-fi action flick Pitch Black into a franchise (after the failure of Chronicles of Riddick) is coming on September 6th. This red band trailer for Riddick premiered at Comic-Con and found its way onto the film’s official YouTube page earlier today.

It looks a little over the top to me compared with Pitch Black (my favorite Alien film since Jim Cameron’s sequel*) but still kind of fun.

The film co-stars Karl Urban, Battlestar Galactica’s Katee Sackhoff, Jordi Mollà, Nolan Gerard Funk, Keri Hilson, and Dave Batista.
