Fresh off the Slab June 15, 2013: ‘The World’s End’, ‘Europa Report’, and ‘Pacific Rim’


It’s baaaaack!!! Fresh off the Slab is here with some ooey gooey horror movie news (well, we cover a whole variety of genres)! Take a peek. You might like it.

The World’s End

The Edgar Wright/Simon Pegg collaboration is fast approaching the big screen and a new TV spot has been released. Take a look at it below.

20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hell bent on trying the drinking marathon again. They are convinced to stage an encore by mate Gary King, a 40-year old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens, who drags his reluctant pals to their home town and once again attempts to reach the fabled pub, The World’s End. As they attempt to reconcile the past and present, they realize the real struggle is for the future, not just theirs but humankind’s. Reaching The World’s End is the least of their worries.


Europa Report

A clip has been posted for the sci-fi horror film, Europa Report. It will be available on VOD on June 26 and will be released in theaters on August 2. The film is being released by Magnet Releasing.

A unique blend of documentary, alternative history, and science fiction thriller, EUROPA REPORT follows a contemporary mission to Jupiter’s moon Europa to investigate the possible existence of alien life within our solar system. When unmanned probes suggest that a hidden ocean could exist underneath Europa’s icy surface and may contain single-celled life, Europa Ventures, a privately funded space exploration company, sends six of the best astronauts from around the world to confirm the data and explore the revolutionary discoveries that may lie in the Europan ocean.

After a near-catastrophic technical failure that leads to loss of communication with Earth and the tragic death of a crew member, the surviving astronauts must overcome the psychological and physical toll of deep space travel and survive a discovery on Europa more profound than they had ever imagined.

Pacific Rim

A new one sheet has been released. The poster is Japanese in origin, and the image is pretty epic. The film will be released on July 12th in theaters. You can see the one sheet  below.

When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanitys resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes-a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)-who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankinds last hope against the mounting apocalypse.
