Watch New Trailer For Alice In Chains’ “Black Antenna” Film

Alice In Chains have shared a new trailer for their 90-minute sci-fi film “Black Antenna.” That movie, which was produced and directed by Adam Mason, is inspired by the band’s latest album “Rainier Fog.” The first two parts will premiere on March 7. Drummer Sean Kinney previously said the following about the project:

“We’ve always toyed with the idea of creating videos for every song on one of our albums. Not only did we do that for ‘Rainier Fog‘, it got totally out of hand and we made a whole goddamn movie. Everything that will be seen in the videos will be footage from ‘Black Antenna‘ to preface the complete film’s release.”

Alice In Chains Announce “Black Antenna” Film

Alice In Chains have announced a new movie project inspired by their latest album “Rainier Fog.” The 90-minute sci-fi film, which is titled “Black Antenna,” is being produced/directed by Adam Mason and it will be released as ten videos starting early next year. Each clip will feature a different song from the album. Mason commented:

“I’m a longtime fan of the band and this was an opportunity to do something fresh and inspiring from an indie filmmaking side. The sound and vision between album and film are closely intertwined – it was a brilliant synergy that led to a really unique project.”

Drummer Sean Kinney added:

“We’ve always toyed with the idea of creating videos for every song on one of our albums. Not only did we do that for ‘Rainier Fog‘, it got totally out of hand and we made a whole goddamn movie. Everything that will be seen in the videos will be footage from ‘Black Antenna‘ to preface the complete film’s release.”

Here’s A First Look At Slipknot’s Sid Wilson In Horror Comedy “The Midnight Snack”

Slipknot’s Sid Wilson will be playing the lead role of “John” in a new horror comedy called “The Midnight Snack.” The short film was written and produced by Pandie Suicide (“Blood Bath”, “Ditch Day Massacre”) and it is being directed by Erik Boccio (“Blood Bath”, Pussy Riot’s “Putin Light Up the Fires”). Pandie Suicide will also star opposite of Wilson as “Betty Lou.” You can see a photo of Wilson in character below and more over at Bloody Disgusting. His tattoos were covered by expert FX makeup artist Laney Chantel (“Face Off”) with Erica Bunny Armendariz. The film was shot on Epic Red Dragon by cinematographer Eli Tahan (Night of the Slasher) and it is expected to be released online in December 2018. The project will focus on “John” as he stops for a bite to eat at a retro 50’s diner where “Betty Lou” is working as a waitress.

Avatar Have Already Raised Close To $70,000 For Their “Legend Of Avatar Country” Film

Over the weekend, Avatar announced that they would be launching a Kickstarter campaign for their new film, “Legend Of Avatar Country,” today (October 29) and as of press time they have already raised $69,798 for the project. The original goal was $50,000, but they exceeded that in just two hours.

The band said the following about the film:

“Avatar Country will be a featurette (longer that a short movie but shorter than the Godfather) based on the music of the album of the same name. It will tell the full story which has already partly been shown in the videos released this far. We will of course continue to work with Johan Carlén who has been in charge behind the camera for all our music videos since Black Waltz. We have developed a language of our own through the years and become great partners, instrumental in realizing each others visions.

The money raised will go to pay for equipment, crew, actors, locations, props, 3D models, wardrobe and anything and everything you can imagine would go into any given film project. The money will NOT go to pay any member of the band, not even the King. Our salaries are made out of what we can make from touring, selling merchandise and whatever comes our way as song writers and recording artists. This will not be a pay day for the band. All money will be directly invested into our art.”
