Tuesday Crush – Eiza Gonzales


Today’s Tuesday Crush is good timing because From Dusk Till Dawn airs tonight on El Rey Network. Our crush today is Eiza Gonzales, one of the stars of the show. She plays Santanico Pandemonium, the part playd originally by Salma Hayek in the original 1996 movie. A bit about Eiza, she’s 25, from Caborca, Sonora, México, and simply stunning every time she’s on screen on From Dusk Till Dawn. If you haven’t seen it, the show is on it’s 2nd season now and the story is going off in a great direction. We’re looking forward to see where the story goes and where Eiza Gonzales goes in the show and in the future. Check out the small gallery and video!

SYNC – a sci-fi short film

Here’s a beautiful short film by Hasraf “HaZ” Dulull called SYNC. It reminds me of Blade Runner, Ghost in The Shell, TRON: Legacy, and other great sci-fi so naturally I love it. The soundtrack by Code Elektro is just right along with the shooting and editing. Good stuff right here. Check it out and leave a comment if you like it!

Wizard World Chicago 2015 Sunday Photos

This weekend was Wizard World comic con here in Chicago. I spent the day there today since I wasn’t able to yesterday and took some photos. Saturday is definitely the day to go for the most events and cosplay photo ops but today was pretty fun and I got some deals on comics and toys for the collection. Enjoy our small photo gallery!


One of our favorite artists, Banksy, just opened his Dismaland bemusement park/art installation in England. Mashable put this together this great story showing some of the artwork at the park. Some of the best work comments on our current worldwide culture of social media, papparazzi, and consumerism. Among the artists showing are Damien Hurst and Jenny Holzer. There are DJ’s late night and on September 25th, Massive Attack will be performing live. Wish we could be there to document the show and experience everything Dismaland has to offer. Till then, enjoy this excellent video by Mashable and click the link here to see the full story on their site.

Lana Del Rey – High By The Beach

Lana Del Rey premiered a new video this week for her new song “High By The Beach”. It’s from her upcoming album Honeymoon that releases on September 18th, which is about a month away and we can’ wait! Check out the new video and if you know what video game inspired the giant gun at the end, let us know in the comments! Okay, that can’t be a real gun so we’re guessing it’s a custom made prop or something.

Deadpool – Red Band Trailer

Just released! Finally we see the new Deadpool trailer that may or may not have leaked at San Diego Comic Con a few weeks ago. It’s good. A funny super hero movie doesn’t really sound like a good idea but this one seems to have some adult situations, language and violence. Those are three of our favorite things here at Panic Films HQ! NSFW FTW! Enjoy the trailer, motherfuckers!

SDCC 2015 Highlights part 2

So here’s part 2 of what made us the most excited from the rest of the weekend at San Diego Comic Con.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. This looks fantastic. It’s nice to have a new Batman story and I think this will be a good set up for the new DC Comics universe. Also nice to see Wonder Woman, but I wonder what kind of role she’ll have and who the real villain of the movie will be.

This was unexpected and totally caught my eye, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. trailer! The movie stars Superman himself, Henry Cavill. Also starring another favorite, Hugh Grant. It’s directed by Guy Ritchie who seems to be back in fine form with some kickass stylish filmmaking. In theaters August 14th, 2015. Holy crap! Next month!

Suicide Squad! The bootleg trailer was leaked on Saturday but Warner Bros. thankfully released a proper version of it today. I’m optimistic for this. The film looks dark and semi predictable, but my personal highlights are an appearance by Batman, seeing Harley Quinn outside of the animated world and video games, and not to mention a whole ton of characters that I’m not familiar with. Joker looks crazy as he should be, and no matter who plays him or what he sounds or looks like he’ll always be compared to Heath Ledger, but I think Jared Leto will be just fine.

SDCC Highlights – Star Wars, Batman, Ninja Turtles, Transformers

We’ve been away from the blog for a while, and we apologize. Life has taken over but seeing the amazing coverage from San Diego Comic Con this year inspired us to come back and share our favorite news.

First off, check out this amazing Star Wars behind the scenes video from The Force Awakens. It’s simply amazing and beyond exciting to see a whole new Star Wars with old friends, new worlds, and new characters. And Simon Pegg! December 18th can’t come soon enough!
