In an alternate universe, inside of as a trilogy of movies by the Wachowski brothers, what if “The Matrix” was a pulp novel, complete with grainy, artwork covers from the ’40s? Then they would probably look like these ridiculously awesome covers by artist Timothy Anderson.
Alexandre Aja’s big-budget, live-action version of “Cobra: The Space Pirate” won’t be landing for a while yet (if, that is, it actually makes it), but until then, check out a quickie fan-made teaser trailer from filmmaker Michael Paris. You don’t see much of Cobra himself, but I guess that’s the point. So what’s this Cobra guy all about? Set in the far future, the series tells of a man called Cobra, who lived an adventurous life until his enemies began to hunt him down. Cobra surgically altered his face and erased his own memory in order to hide from his foes and lead a normal life. He soon regains his memories and re-unites with his old partner Lady Armaroid and his ship Tortuga.

I think Nathan Fillion is a decent actor myself, and he’s been good in the things I’ve seen him in, like the “Serenity” movie, or the Firefly TV show from which it was based on.

From the makers of “Escape From City 17″ The Escape From City 17 short film series is an adaptation based on the Half Life computer game saga by Valve Corporation. Originally envisioned as a project to test out numerous post production techniques, as well as a spec commercial, it ballooned into a multi part series. Filmed guerilla style with no money, no time, no crew, no script, the first two episodes were made from beginning to end on a budget of $500. This thing is so good, the people at Valve actually flew the directors, brothers David and Ian Purchase, out to meet with them, although there is no word if this thing will ever turn into an actual movie or not.
