A couple of movies I’m for sure looking forward to are BEAST and PORTAL. We’ll talk about the latter first, since any mention of it seems to have disappeared from the Internet. There was originally a post on Bloody Disgusting that alerted me to the project but “Error 404! The page you requested does not exist or has moved.” Hmm. Curious. What little of the article remains visible via search engines states that “Blue Fox Entertainment, who is behind Braid and Feedback, is next backing the sci-fi creature feature PORTAL, which is heading to the EFM in Berlin, Bloody [Disgusting] learned” and the movie would star Claire Holt of 47 METER’s DOWN. There are no results on IMDB when you enter “Claire Holt” and “Portal” and you also don’t get any results when you type in “Blue Fox Entertainment” and “Portal”, so I don’t know what’s up with it. I only recall that the premise of the movie, a “sci-fi creature feature” about some beast entering our world through some sort of portal to another dimension, sounded intriguing.
BEAST hasn’t gone missing like PORTAL has. It will star babelicious Morena Baccarin of DEADPOOL and FIREFLY fame in a “hard-hitting tale of a woman who survives a plane crash and is stranded on a seemingly deserted island in the South Pacific. She must fight to get back to her children, face her inner demons and a real threat of unimaginable proportions.” Sold!
