A lot of great news regarding Silent Hill Revelation was revealed at Comic Con this year. Unfortunately their still isn’t a trailer (expect one in the coming weeks) but we did get a peek of actual movie footage at the panel, new info and a movie still!
I lined up five hours early on Saturday to get into the panel but just missed being able to make it inside before the room fill capacity for the first panel of the day. Silent Hill was the second panel of the day but since no one had left the room after the first panel me and many others were let standing outside when it began.
Luckily those who were able to make it in, like JoBlo.com were sure to give a nice run down of what went down inside.
· Two clips from the film were shown. One clip that made it online shows Vincent strapped onto a hospital gurney surrounded by several creepy nurses. As Heather tries to help him escape the nurses attack:
The second clip featured a creature that that was not done practically on set. In the clip Heather frees her friend who’s encased in some kind of web or tape and a spider-like creature made up of mannequin parts comes after them. This cgi monster’s reveal is exclusive to con goers and as of today still hasn’t surfaced online. It has been said however that this new creature was inspired by the games and I’ve been told by those who attended the panel that it looks similar to Scarlet but on steroids.
· Revelation is a sequel to the first movie and and adaptation of the third game, but will also work as a standalone film. For fans of the series there will be many easter eggs to look out for.
· The movie is a hard R and the clips we shown were the only PG-13 parts of the movie. “I didn’t want to scare the Hobbit fans out there.”
· The character Sharon from the first films has been turned into Heather in this film which will be explained.
· The film was completely shot in 3D. Michael J Bassett was not fond of this format initially but soon came around saying that if there ever was a universe to immerse yourself in, it’s this one.
· Actress Adelaide Clemens screamed before every scene in preparation for Silent Hill Revelation
· A fan asked if Sean Bean’s character will die like he does in almost all of his roles. Bassett answers with “Yes and no. You have to see the movie to understand. You’ll have something to add to the [Sean Bean Death Montage] YouTube video, but not in the way you expect.”
After the panel Michael J Bassett and Adelaide Clemens signed autographs for some lucky fans. I wish I could have met them but at least I was able to pick up one of those Revelation posters they were signing later at the IDW booth in the dealer’s room!
And finally a new still from the movie was released showing Heather on what seems to be a burning Lakeside Amusement Park carousel.
I got to say after this weekend I’m super pumped for the movie! I hope more movie stills, clips, official movie poster and trailer will be revealed soon!
