Asylum is back again, with their own take on the women in prison genre. Based on the graphic novel 17 & Life: Jailbait, Jailbait features a young girl thrown behind bars and forced to deal with practically every exploitation film’s vision of a women’s prison. Of course, they’re comparing it to Orange in the New Black, because never waste an opportunity to cross-promote!
After killing her stepfather in self-defense, Anna Nix is sent to a juvenile detention center. As she struggles to survive in a world of girl gangs and predatory guards, Anna must fight her dark side and stay above the fray.
Here is the slightly NSFW trailer – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WR-ouRYzlm8
Jailbait stars Sara Malakul Lane (Sharktopus), Steve Hanks, Shannon Walters, David Brite, Samantha Cardona, and Erin O’Brien. It’s directed by Jared Cohn (Atlantic Rim, 12/12/12)
Asylum’s Atlantic Rimhas hit trailer, and has a possible alternate title they are filming under (From the Sea) that got spoilered by some local newspapers. As seen in the trailer, a monster that looks like a crazy mutant dinosaur attacks, so they send in three giant robot fighters to go take it down. And David Chokachi’s character is the loose cannon who will end up saving the day, because we always need one of those. Luckily, the robots are color-coded, which makes Atlantic Rim‘s robots easier to tell apart than the ones in Transformers! Which title will Atlantic Rim show up as on the shelves? Hard to say after Age of the Hobbits got lawsuit smacked into a new title.
Atlantic Rim is directed by Jared Cohn, and stars David Chokachi, Jackie Moore, Treach, and Graham Greene
