Everything is fun and games till the sharks turn on you! <guffaw> I must admit I LOVED Deep Blue Sea when I saw it with friends at the Cinemadome and we laughed like hyenas! It was and still is the funniest horror movie I’ve ever seen so let me be the first to say … am ready to watch this with a bowl of hot buttered popcorn and a soda (no brand preference).
Has humanity learned nothing about making sharks super smart? What next giving them legs so they can terrorize us on land next (just kidding sharks rarely attack humans)? Well it looks like we haven’t because a new mad genius has decided to improve on the sea killing machines that haven’t changed all that much since the time of dinosaurs. Deep Blue Sea 2 will be released on April 17, 2018 on Blu-ray™ Combo Pack ($24.98 SRP), DVD ($19.98 SRP) and Digital. The Blu-ray™ Combo Pack features the film in hi-definition, a standard definition DVD and a digital version of the film and will be rated R for gore, violence, language and general mayhem!
Deep Blue Sea 2, shark conservationist Dr. Misty Calhoun (Danielle Savre) is invited to consult on a new, top secret project run by pharmaceutical billionaire Carl Durant (Michael Beach). She believes the project, performed at a remote, sea-based facility, focuses on extracting shark antibodies to help work toward cures for human diseases. However, Dr. Calhoun is shocked to learn that the company is using unpredictable bull sharks as its test subjects, and Durant has bio-engineered a shiver of highly intelligent, super-aggressive bull sharks. When science meddles with the time-tested process of nature and nurture, the outcome can be deadly. The film is directed by two-time Independent Spirit Award nominee Darin Scott (Menace II Society, To Sleep With Anger), and written by Hans Rodionoff (Lost Boys: The Tribe) and award-winning writing partners Jessica Scott & Eric Patterson (Another Cinderella Story). Tom Keniston (Sophia Grace & Rosie’s Royal Adventure) serves as executive producer, and Tom Siegrist (Santa’s Little Helper, The Exorcism of Molly Hartley) is the film’s producer.
Rounding out the cast are Danielle Savre (Heroes, Boogeyman 2) in the lead role of shark conservationist Dr. Misty Calhoun; Rob Mayes (John Dies at the End, Mistresses) as Trent Slater, a highly decorated ex-Navy SEAL; and Michael Beach (Third Watch, The 100, upcoming Aquaman) as Carl Durant, a big pharma billionaire with questionable ethics. Rounding out the cast is Nathan Lynn (Outlander) as tech expert Aaron Ellroy, Kim Syster (Sterlopers) as neurobiologist Leslie Kim, and Jeremy Jess Boado (House Party: Tonight’s the Night) as clinical neurophysiologist Daniel Kim.
“Deep Blue Sea 2 is a true sequel, staying within the mythology of the original film, and taking the next step in the evolution of the sharks … and their human counterparts,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, WBHE, Vice President, TV Marketing, Family & Animation. “This time, there’s more perspective from the sharks, giving greater personality to the ‘villains’ in this film. It’s a thrill ride that will keep the audience guessing throughout.”

Writers Bloc Celebrating 20 years of great conversation in Los Angeles
Thanks to Starz the cast and team of Outlander will come to talk to fans about the upcoming season in Los Angeles!
Thanks to Starz for their sponsorship, tickets are $10.
It is the dawn of Season 2. Its difficult to imagine historical fiction that is as much fun as Diana Gabaldon’s addictive series, Outlander. And even in today’s landscape of absolutely terrific television, it is impossible to imagine a more combustible cocktail of love story, historical fiction, adventure, and just great storytelling.
Outlander Season 1 started us out comfortably enough in post WWII London, and dropped us into mid-18th Century Scotland. Our war-weary nurse Claire Randall and her husband, history scholar Frank Randall, enjoy a second honeymoon of sorts in the Scottish Highlands. Exploring the Highlands on her own, Claire touches a boulder, known for its mythical and mystical qualities. Before we can down a wee dram of Scotch or fasten our kilts, Outlander careens us from 1945 to 1743.
A Tribute to Outlander
March 31, 2016, 7:30pm
Writers Guild Theater
What a difference a few centuries make! A beautiful young woman wandering alone in the Highlands spells danger, drama, and opportunity for adventure. And if you have been fortunate enough to read Gabaldon’s first book in the series, or see Season One of Outlander, adventure comes in oh so many shapes, but primarily in the matinee-idol form of Jamie.
Starz Outlander at 2015 SDCC Caitriona Balfe, Sam Heughan, Diana Gabaldon, Ronald Moore
This Starz television adaptation of Gabaldon’s series, stays faithful to the literature and makes 18th Century Scotland bloom in the best- and sometimes darkest- possible ways. Our brave, lusty nurse Claire finds herself the handsomest guy in 1743 Scotland but she is married to 20th Century Frank. Consider the obstacles Claire must face in 1743: for her vast command of modern medicine, shed be burned as a witch. And her intellectual, independent spirit must somehow knock itself to a simmer in the face of the sexist and patriarchal culture that surrounds her. Claire knows what will happen to her 18th Century friends and neighbors. But living by historical knowledge is not so easy when she is trying to survive from one moment to the next, moving from villains and danger with aplomb. Participants in Survivor never had it so tough. Claire’s dilemma is to somehow return to 1945, to her stable and serious husband Frank. But returning to somewhere requires leaving from somewhere: so is leaving Jamie, that handsomest guy in 18th Century Scotland, something she can do? Before she can leave Jamie, she must try to change the course of history.

So excited that Starz is bringing to San Diego Comic Con the stars and creators of Outlander and Ash vs Evil Dead this year! I hope you got your pass and are ready to camp out on Thursday, room 6A at 6pm. Friday is all about Outlander in Ballroom 20 at 4pm! I’ve already asked to be on the press list and am NOT ashamed to beg to interview them!
Hmm I already did my highlander joke to Caitriona and Sam which left them a bit perplexed when I spoke to them last year (interview on YouTube). I’ll stick to the show, the screen chemistry and of course the heaving bosom .. I’m talking about his! <hubba hubba> he does look VERY nice without a shirt! <snicker>
Any geek worth their salt have been going NUTS that Sam Raimi has brought Ash to the small screen! Meet my boomstick indeed!
“Ash vs Evil Dead”
Thursday July 9th, Room 6A in the San Diego Convention Center 6:00 – 7:00 PM
“Ash vs Evil Dead,” which is currently in production in New Zealand, is the long-awaited follow-up to the classic horror film franchise The Evil Dead and is set to premiere on STARZ in Fall 2015. The 10-episode first season of the half-hour series is executive produced by Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert, Bruce Campbell, the original filmmakers of the franchise, and Craig DiGregorio who will serve as executive producer and showrunner.
Campbell will be reprising his role as Ash, the stock boy, aging lothario and chainsaw-handed monster hunter who has spent the last 30 years avoiding responsibility, maturity and the terrors of the Evil Dead. When a Deadite plague threatens to destroy all of mankind, Ash is finally forced to face his demons –personal and literal. Destiny, it turns out, has no plans to release the unlikely hero from its “Evil” grip.
The cast is led by Bruce Campbell (Evil Dead, “Burn Notice”) in the role of Ash Williams, Lucy Lawless (“Salem,” “Spartacus”) as Ruby a mysterious figure who believes Ash is the cause of the Evil outbreaks, Ray Santiago (“Touch,” Meet the Fockers) as Pablo Simon Bolivar, an idealistic immigrant who becomes Ash’s loyal sidekick, Dana DeLorenzo (A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas) as Kelly Maxwell, a moody wild child trying to outrun her past and Jill Marie Jones (“Sleepy Hollow”) as Amanda Fisher, a disgraced Michigan State Trooper set to find our anti-hero Ash and prove his responsibility in the grisly murder of her partner.
Friday July 10th Ballroom 20 in the San Diego Convention Center 4:00 – 4:45 PM
Have you succumbed to the dulcet tones of this romantic fantasy drama? It’s a beautiful period drama with a solid cast based on a series written by Diana Gabaldon that is historical fiction but with the twist of time travel, social norms, sex, intrigue and a bit of mystery. I have to say one of the things that I enjoy about the series is the red hot screen chemistry! My other favorite is how it shows that social norms are fluid and constantly change about what’s ‘normal’. It’s a show unlike anything else on TV or I’ve ever seen.
“Outlander” spans the genres of romance, science fiction, history and adventure as it follows Claire Randall, a married WWII combat nurse who mistakenly falls back in time to 1743. As the season continues, Claire and Jamie’s relationship is tested and Claire must reconcile her modern mindset with this 18th century world. Ruthless redcoats, volatile clan politics, and a brutal witch trial force Jamie and Claire to escape to a new home. Just when their life as a married couple begins to take shape, Jamie is once again drawn into Captain Randall’s darkness. Ultimately, Claire discovers there is a fate worse than death as she struggles to save Jamie’s heart, as well as his soul.
Leave a comment below on what I should ask the cast of the shows! I might choose it when I talk to them at San Diego Comic Con.
