Brainspasm Updates

Things have been a bit hectic for the Backbrain, hence the slowness of new material appearing here. However, I have been adding some image-heavy updates to our sister site, Undead Brainspasm.

  • News on a new low-budget superhero flick from independent filmmaker Brett Kelly: Avenging Force: The Scarab (US-2010; dir. Brett Kelly).

  • Update on Ghost in the Shell creator Mamoru Oshii’s follow-up to his live-action sci-fi epic, Avalon: Assault Girls [aka Asaruto gâruzu] (Japan-2009; dir. Mamoru Oshii).

Below is a gallery of images from the film. The Brainspasm article includes many more, as well as the trailer and DVD artwork.

  • And one last snippet: Dean Devlin, who helped director Roland Emmerich perpetrate the 1998 US version of Godzilla — known without much affection by the fans as GINO [Godzilla In Name Only] — comments via Twitter on news that Legendary Pictures is to produce a new Godzilla film, one much more faithful to the spirit of the iconic King of Monsters than the Devlin/Emmerich effort: “Now I have to hear all over again how our version sucked. Arrg.” (Source)  At least he has no illusions. [I should point out that, personally, I quite liked Emmerich’s Godzilla, when seen as a generic giant monster film. It was only as a Godzilla film that it sucked.] Info via Avery Guerra.
