Interview: Director Peter Stray talks ‘Canaries’

How did you first get into filmmaking?

Growing up in Swansea, there was a strong arts lineage thanks to local youth theatres and the legacy of Dylan Thomas. I was always into acting and was a child of the movies. I learnt a lot from BBC2 documentaries interviewing directors, from Ken Loach to Brian DePalma. Also, my mum is a Professor of Anthropology and her department at Swansea University was in the same building as media resources, so I was able to borrow Svhs cameras and learn to edit on the giant VHS editing decks they had back in the day! I learnt by doing.

What can we expect from your first feature film Canaries?

You can expect some laughs, scares, sci-fi intrigue and some political / social subtext should you go looking for it. Mostly it’s just a fun tale to be enjoyed with a beer and friends.

Indiana Jones and the Future of the Franchise

Tony Black on Indiana Jones and the future of the franchise…

Ask almost anyone what they thought of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, the 2008 long-gestated sequel known forever and a day simply as ‘Indy IV’, and you’ll probably get much the same answer. “Awful!” “Rotten!” “Should never have made it!” “Nuke the fridge???!” You get the drift. It’s about as popular a sequel as World War Two, the fourth in, to many, a near-perfect trilogy of adventure films that helped define their decade, and the childhoods of millions. Indeed many try and revise history to erase it from their minds, considering Last Crusade the last hurrah. Like it or not, however, Disney know Indy = money given the near $800 million the fourth movie made on just shy of a $200 million budget. Almost nobody liked it, yet almost everybody went to see it. Therefore, after Disney’s epic purchase of LucasFilm,

Four additional series regular roles have been cast in Fox and Warner Bros. Television's Gotham, which has a series commitment at the network.

Dominic Burns’ Alien Uprising Drops a New Trailer and a Poster

If writer/director Dominic Burns’ “Alien Uprising” sounds familiar, then it’s probably because you heard about the flick when it was called “UFO.” Since that sort of title doesn’t really fly in the North American market — plus it knocks you to the back of the Netflix and Redbox — the film is now known as “Alien Uprising.” Thankfully, it retains the cameo from Jean-Claude Van Damme, which is the only reason it’s getting covered here today. Sorry, everyone else. A synopsis, if you so desire: A group of friends awake one morning to find all electricity and power shut off, and an immense alien aircraft hovering in the air above their heads.

Jean-Claude Van Damme’s U.F.O. is Now Alien Uprising, Gets New Trailer

Damn aliens are itching for a split-kick in the face! Of course this isn’t Really a Jean-Claude Van Damme movie. As far as I know, he only has a cameo in this thing (not that I’ve seen it or anything, but he does only appear way at the end of the trailer, and if he has a bigger role, you’d think they would show him more often). Dominic Burns’ “Alien Uprising” was formerly called “U.F.O.”, but I guess “Alien Uprising” sounds more “alien” and “uprising”-ish. Here’s the latest trailer for the film sporting the new moniker. A group of friends awake one morning to find all electricity and power shut off, and an immense alien aircraft hovering in the air above their heads. Suddenly this regular group of friends is battling to survive, as the entire human race is threatened by the alien army hovering ominously above.
