I just got finished playing a couple rounds of halo with my friends on splitscreen and had a blast, I love halo, and my mother probably is a deathclaw.

The post-apocalyptic zombie horror film Land of the Dead has spawned a new movie company called Chiller Films. I'm not 100% sure what this means, but I think essentially the people working on the film liked each other so much that they decided to make their own movie company together. You can read the full report at Bloody-Disgusting, and here's a quote:
Reacting to a seemingly endless audience appetite for horror films, Mark Canton's Atmosphere Entertainment has teamed with Relativity Media to form Chiller Films.

Canton and Relativity principal Ryan Kavanaugh will head the venture, which will finance and produce several films per year with a $20 million budget cap.

Chiller grew out of the production of the George Romero-directed zombie pic "Land of the Dead," which recently wrapped. Universal will release it in October while Exception Wild Bunch handles overseas rights.

Relativity's Kavanaugh and Lynwood Spinks put the financing in place for the film after Atmosphere set Romero and his partner Peter Grunwald for the pic.

"After we unearthed the horror master, we seemed to come upon an endless number of opportunities for films in the horror genre," Canton said. "If anything, the market is expanding."

I think Land of the Dead is going to be one of the films of the year; you can't do much wrong combing zombies with social commentary.

In other movie news, Fallout narrator Ron Pearlman says that he's going to be shooting Hellboy 2 this Autumn/Fall. The first one was kind of fun to watch.
