Beyond White Space is about space fishing. For real. The sci-fi action film stars Fight Club’s Holt McCallany as the captain of a deep space fishing vessel who encounters a large, mythic creature. After a robbery, the ship’s crew must chase after the creature in order to salvage their trip. Oh, and the creature may be the same one that killed the captain’s father.
Written by Ryan Colucci and Clay McLeod Chapman and directed by visual effects artist Ken Locsmandi, Beyond White Space opens in theaters and on demand December 14—and we’re excited to exclusively debut the film’s badass trailer.
Now, obviously, Beyond White Space is not a big time Hollywood production. It’s a labor of love on a budget that’s a mere percentage of what it could have been. And yet, that trailer is a hell of a lot of fun. The creature looks great, the suits are rad, there seems to be some real emotion there, and the whole Jaws/Moby Dick/20,ooo Leagues in space vibe feels different and exciting. We hope it lives up to the potential, and we’ll all find out December 14.
From George R.R. Martin, the New York Times Best Selling author behind HBO’s mega-series, “Game of Thrones,” comes this chilling story of a killer out for more than blood. When a string of grotesque killings begins to strike her small city, private detective Randi Wade becomes suspicious. A serial killer is taking the skin of its victims and the grisly murders remind her all too much of her own father’s death almost twenty years ago. As the police hit a dead end, Randi goes on a search for answers of her own… But when a close friend suddenly becomes a target, he is forced to reveal a startling secret about himself and Randi is quickly pulled into a dark underworld where monsters exist and prey on the living. Can you solve the mystery beneath the skin?
“My werewolf novella, “The Skin Trade”, originally published way back when in ‘Night Visions 5, has been optioned for film by Mike The Pike Productions…And about time. I’ve always thought there was a terrific movie in “The Skin Trade”, but somehow no one has ever optioned it till now. The novella is a horror/mystery cross set in a decaying rustbelt city and featuring a hot young female private eye and a hypochondriac lycanthrope, how’s that for high concept? Randi and Willie are still favorites of mine. The novella won the World Fantasy Award too, which is how I got that head of H.P. Lovecraft that looks down over my living room. I hope that Mike The Pike… does a kickass job with it.”
