Mr. Megan Fox and foxy Mena Suvari star in the upcoming sci-fi, horror Last Stop, filmed in Ruidoso NM. The film is scheduled to be released later this year – no word on if it will be cinematical or DVD direct.
Already minted to DVD and Blueray is the incredible Hammer Films NM Horror/Thriller Let Me In. This chilly horror stars NM’s Own (adopted) scary little lady Chloe Moretz – who I maintain is a FORCE to be reckoned with – I’m talking to you ACADEMY.
Moretz is scheduled to be back for her third NM film, Hick at the end of the month!
As of today she’s in a dead (pun) heat with Oscar contender Hailee Steinfeld in our own Golden Tumbleweed race for NM’s favorite leading lady of the past year…
UPDATE 10/03/10: NM in the top TEN. As of this afternoon NM’s Own, Wholly NM film Let Me In comes in at #8 for the weekend Box Office take! Raking in ~$5,300,000 opening on just over 2,000 screens! Woot!
The headlining pasty white vamps, creepish villains and blood-let victims of our long chronicled Wholly New Mexico film Let Me In may not be ready to hit the red and yellow carpet, but a premiere party will go on for the local extras, cast & crew in Los Alamos today:
“The Overture film, “Let Me In” premiers at the Reel Deal Theater on Friday with two showings; one at 6:50 p.m. and the other at 9:15 p.m.
Los Alamos County will co-sponsor a “red carpet” premiere with the Reel Deal for “Let Me In,” which will features prizes and special giveaways.
The movie was filmed in Los Alamos nearly a year ago and features several local community members, including teens from the middle and high schools. Staff from the county’s film office will serve free cake and punch in the lobby before each showing and have giveaways from the movie distribution company, such as copies of the book that was the basis of the film “Let the Right One In,” plus free movie posters.
Not only was “Let Me In” filmed in Los Alamos, but the actual town in the movie is Los Alamos. Many local residents were hired as extras and some of the kids in the film are wearing their ‘Topper High School letter
jackets with LA emblazoned on them.
The film has received rave reviews on all fronts and the Internet movie site, Rotten Tomatoes, scored it the highest at 100 percent. Some of the locations included in the filming were the high school, Barranca Mesa, the culvert at the roundabout, Ashley Pond and the ice rink
Expect long lines and sold out shows so buy your tickets early and arrive at the theater well in advance of your show time.”
Chloe Moretz (Kick Ass, 500 Days of Summer) who already has two NM films under her belt (Let Me In, The Eye) will return later this year in the Taylor Lane Productions film, Hick – based on the novel and adapted screenplay by Andrea Portes.
The pre-embryonic dish on the dark drama, to be directed by Derick Martini, is that this will be the edgiest role yet for this young but seasoned actress, maybe shades of Jodi Foster à la Taxi Driver? As they say on the evening news…You heard it here first!
The horror/thriller, Intruders due from director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 Days Later), in 2011 has reportedly locked-in Clive Owen (Sin City, Closer) and Daniel Brühl (Inglorious Basterds) and is set to film, in part aquí en Nuevo México.
Horror genre giants, Hammer Films have two New Mexico productions forthcoming, The Resident and Let Me In.
Look to Legion for NM Horror now on DVD and local production house Fireborn Films has horror in progress.
“The film is looking for ice skaters (adults and teens), police officers, and paramedics to appear in non-speaking roles for filming mid-January in Red River (skating outdoors on a lake).”
If your parental challenges are your real-life horror git’ your youngins out to the Albuquerque International Balloon Museum from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. where ABC’s Supernanny is also holding a NM casting call…you can also email your family specs & particular issues to local casting agent Aaron Giombolini at Casting505@gmail.com. They are specifically looking for ‘unique’ family situations.
