UltraViolet Fades To Black..

(Joshua Gilmore-Staff Writer)

The digital media viewing landscape will be changing in July, as the UltraViolet digital movie storage service will be shutting down on July 31,2019.

The UltraViolet service launched in 2011 and allowed their users to store their movie library in cloud, this cloud would allow the user to watch their movie from multiple devices and locations. As this concept was top of the line in 2011, in the streaming world of today, this service has become lost in the pack.

Now, before you curse the movie storage gods, the company behind UltraViolet has released a statement to assure the current users.

“Between January 31 and July 31, 2019, you can continue to access your UltraViolet movies and TV shows through the retailers linked to your UltraViolet Library,” the company said. “If your library is not currently linked to a retailer or if you would like to link to additional participating retailers, select one or more retailers to link to your UltraViolet library”.

Who You Going To Call In 2020?

After 30 years and a controversial reboot, Sony has announced a new Ghostbusters movie set in the original universe scheduled for a summer 2020 release. The news was broken by the trades on January 15th, with an online press release detailing the plans for the new movie. Set to be written and directed by two time academy nominated Jason Reitman, son of original director Ivan Reitman.

The movie is scheduled to be filmed this summer, however the press release did not mention any casting news so it is not determined at this point if any of the main cast will be returning.
Not wanting to let the flame die down, Sony released a 52 second teaser trailer on the morning of January 16th.

The trailer has fans watering at the mouth for more, especially casting news. While the original cast returned for the 2016 reboot, it has still not been determined whether we will see any of the OG’s in this highly anticipated sequel. One cast member has made his presence known on social media, Dan Aykroyd.
Jason Reitman dropped the following tweet with the trailer:

Dan Aykroyd tweeted back to Jason:

  So we know Dan is ready to jump in, but the major hold out with the cast has always been the elusive Bill Murray. There have been attempts in the past to get a GB3 off the ground, but Bill has always denied coming back which never let sequels get off the ground. But with a Reitman at the helm, and the fans rallying around this news it seems the right time for Bill to make his comeback to ethereal plane.

**For the unaware, the guys from Nowhere have another podcast that delves into the fandom and legacy of the Ghostbusters franchise. The show is called THE ECTO POD and you can find it on all of your favorite podcast search engines. 

 

Joe Has Some Late Fees And Needs Your Help

Joe is a nice guy and tries to do nothing wrong, but a recent discovery will send him on a most excellent adventure. Joe will journey to return a VHS copy of “Above The Law” and late fees be darned, he will accomplish his goal.

You have entered the world of “Joe Returns A Video”, a short film written and starring Joe Grisaffi. You might remember Joe was the director of the movie “Conjoined”, a movie I described in the past as “A cross between an episode of Tales From The Crypt and Three’s Company with a few low doses of acid.” That review is in the most positive light a review can be with the use of acid as an example and “Joe Returns A Video” continues that stream of thought.

I was lucky enough to view a rough cut of this short and would love to give a proper review, but that would spoil the fun of this absurdly hilarious film. Honestly, “Joe Returns A Video” is like an ADULT SWIM cartoon come to life and you still have the opportunity to help finish this film.

The team behind this film is in the final days of an IndieGoGo campaign for the post production process. They have locked in some great perks for your donations and you can have your name attached to a great piece of independent comedy.

The Finish Line Is In View…

The production for a movie can be looked at in three parts. There is pre-production and the actual film production, then the filmmaker has one final lap with post production and this is there chance to finish their dream that started on a blank page.

A few months ago, April to be exact, we shared the IndieGoGo project for the film “Life Insurance Lottery”. This project was to help through the filming process and now is the time for post-production and this is your chance to have your hands or some blood (depending on the perks you pick) in some great independent cinema.

As a contributor to this project, every dollar you pledge will help put the finishing touches on this production. The cast and crew of “Life Insurance Lottery” have a great film that deserves a final product that can stand toe to toe with bigger budget Hollywood grind.

Check out this project’s IndieGoGo page and learn about the making of this movie, then spread the word and throw your money into this film’s final cut.

A Look From Nowhere At Stan & Ollie

(Joshua Gilmore-Staff Writer)

The greatest doubles act of Hollywood’s golden age is getting a second life in the digital age, as an untold story from the careers of Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy gets the biography film treatment in the upcoming movie “Stan & Ollie”

“Stan & Ollie” follows Laurel and Hardy, Steve Coogan as Stan Laurel and an almost unrecognizable John C. Reilly as Oliver Hardy, as they tour through post-war Britain and Ireland. The purpose for the tour was to reignite their film career, but this time overseas ended up being their swan song as performers.

This film is directed by Jon S. Baird, who recently directed the film “Filth” and was written by Jeff Pope, who wrote the 2013 movie “Philomena”. “Stan & Ollie” does not have a set North American release date, but from the looks of the trailer, this movie will make a lot of noise when it hits the silver screen.hardypost

A Look From Nowhere At Life Insurance Lottery..

(Joshua Gilmore-Staff Writer)

 The creative minds behind “Haunted Trailer” and “Getting Schooled”, a personal favorite of Nowhere California, are getting ready to roll film on their next production and they want you to roll the dice with them in the form of an indiegogo project.

 “Life Insurance Lottery” follows a down and out loser, as he wishes for the simple life and joins a club that could be the answer to all of his dreams; but when his friends start to die, he must choose between a growing bank account and stopping a rising body count.

 The writer behind this film is Chuck Norfolk and he originally submitted this script for the third season of the “Project Greenlight” television series, the script was ranked in the top 20% of the competition and, after 16 years on a hard drive, the time has come for “Life Insurance Lottery” to become a big screen reality.

 The first part of that reality is an indiegogo project to achieve a budget this film deserves, you can check out this project by CLICKING HERE On this page, you can check out plans for the production and budget. You can meet the people that will create this film from behind and in front of the camera. Also, a key budget point has been revealed that a secret backer will match funds up to $15,000 and that should be a prime example that even a dollar will go a long way.

 Now, with any crowd funding projects, the perks can be as important as the campaign and the rewards for the “Life Insurance Lottery” project will allow you to leave your own mark on this movie. The details of these perks are worth the viewing and are well worth your money.

 This project is currently live and we will keep you posted on the progress of this production. In Nowhere California’s lifetime, we take great pride in the independent creativity that we have shared with our listeners and this production will continue this path.

 The holidays have been drowned away by the New Year’s hangovers, so the time has come to return to our coverage of Stan Lee’s 2017 Los Angeles Comic Con. The hiatus may have been longer then we hoped, but this spotlight is focused sharply on a talented entry from the world of independent comic books.

In this installment, we continue our adventures into Artist Alley and talk with the creative minds behind “Olive and the Underworld,” Emily Felt and Laura West. This conversation delves into the books creation and development of this story of an orphaned goth girl named Olive and the rollercoaster life she lives, trying to fit in and find a home. As the speed bumps seems to grow, her world and her classmate’s world change in a tragic twist of fate.

I can continue to describe this story, but a better description will come from the creators and not from me, so
