Sorry to report that the Fan Expo Dallas where Elijah, Sean, Dom and Billy were to appear in a couple of weeks has been postponed due to the COVID-19 occurrences. If you already purchased your tickets, go to their announcement to read more. The upcoming MegaCon in Orlando is still on for April, but the officials are closely monitoring developments.
:: However, over in the UK, Comic Con Liverpool is done, and it looks like those who attended had a wonderful time. Elijah was there signing autographs and posing with fans. You can see a page full of photos from the event just by clicking the image below.
:: He also conducted a Q&A and a good portion of it can be seen on YouTube and a quick one of his introduction.
:: Not one, but two different sites have placed Come To Daddy high on their lists as one of the best horror movies so far this year. Check out the multi-entertainment Thrillest, and the prestigious Rotten Tomatoes, where another film Elijah had a hand in made the list.
:: Here's an interesting Come To Daddy billboard found in Russia. If you're wondering, it states "Congratulations on the birth of your son, Elijah." And the bubble says "Come To Daddy." Director Ant Timpson derisively claims it's best billboard ever.
:: Elijah slipped into his hobbit attire and accent once more, but you can only see him from the nose down in this commercial full of famous mouths.
:: Remember the 2018, Company X/SpectreVision movie with the extra long title? Well, now it's been shortened a bit to Seven Stages to Achieve Eternal Bliss, and was quietly released in theaters earlier this month. It will be available on VOD come March 17th, and here's the pretty hilarious trailer.
:: Finally, artist Batflashdesign created this incredible rendition of Elijah as The Mad Hatter, one of Batman's enemies, and people on social media are loving the notion as a possibility in the new movie. If you're familiar with the character, Elijah would be perfect!
That's all... for now.

Elijah's close friend, Autumn de Wilde, has her first feature film, Emma, currently out in theaters. He was on hand at the recent premiere of the movie and served as moderator for a Q&A. We have a few photos from both and there's a video from the Q&A on YouTube.
:: Elijah has been turning out some excellent interviews lately and this podcast from Watch Less is no exception.
:: I've compiled some behind the scenes and screencaps from Come To Daddy in the prodcution stills section. ::WARNING:: If you haven't seen the movie yet, it's probably best not to take a peek, especially if you don't like spoilers.
:: Listen up UK and Ireland fans. You have a chance to own a free copy of Come To Daddy two different ways. Log on here and here to enter, but hurry. They end March 2nd and March 6th respectively.
:: Color Out of Space is currently out on Blu-ray/DVD, but if you want a free copy of this mind-trip, head over to Slant Magazine. This also ends on March 2nd.
:: If you missed out on the Dirk Gently auction a couple of years back, you have another opportunity to own a piece of this incredible, but short-lived program. You can place bids on props and wardrobe beginning March 12th. There are a lot of great items from the second season like Todd's watch, Dirk's retro shirt, Wakti's headdress and Panto's scissors sword.
:: There's also a bit of news about another possible stab at the Dirk Gently universe. According to executive producer, Arvind Ethan David, there is a definite (maybe) plan (sort of). They are hard at work trying to bring an animated project together for us die-hard Dirktectives. They have a lead writer and animation show-runner. Their next step is working on character designs and storylines. I'm sure we all wish them the best of luck and thank all those involved for their efforts to keep Dirk alive.
:: We have a first look at SpectreVision's newest production photo from Archenemy.
:: Finally, I came across the remarkable inset photo of Elijah taken by Chase Heverlo on the set of Wilfred back in 2012.
That's all... for now.

Promotions, and clips, and photos, oh my!
:: Come To Daddy was released last weekend and the publicity is in full swing. Before the film's release, there was a special screening in Los Angeles and there are plenty of photos, in addition to a video from the Q&A which followed along with some dancing. There's a design for a new poster from Mondo which sold out during the screening, but it's been said more will be made.
:: If you're not in an area where it's showing in a theater, you can rent or buy this amazing movie from various streaming outlets. But if you can't at the moment, here are some clips to further entice you. Can I ask you something?, Selfie, Elton John.
:: Of course there are interviews too. Here are a couple of excerpts from Late Night with Seth Meyers  , and Conan O'Brien.  . You can watch the full Late Night interview on Hulu, and I made some screencaps from both appearances. Seth Meyers and Conan.
:: Elijah took part in some amusing, informative and random video interviews like these from Wired, where he addresses the most searched questions about himself on the internet, a fantastic in depth chat about some of his films that he doesn't speak of too often from Yahoo's Role Recall, and First We Feast's Hot Ones, where he sort of took on their hot sauce challenge. I would love if Elijah fully participated in their standard interview platform.
:: Check out these online print conversations from Coming Soon, Rue Morgue, SyFy Wire, Forbes, and my personal favorite, Birth.Movies.Death, which is hysterical!
:: The difference between print and video is podcasting and there's a great one from The Boo Crew.
:: Here are some photos of the Q&A's with Elijah and Ant that were held at the ArcLight in LA, the Alamo Drafthouse in New York City and San Fransisco, and in Auckland, NZ where the movie opens nationwide beginning February 20. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
:: Closing out this Come To Daddy-centric post with Elijah helping out the Girl Scouts, and taking a break from filming in his jammies.
That's all... for now.

Before I get into the birthday goodies, there are a few things to catch up on.
:: Just 10 days from now is the release of Come To Daddy in select theaters and VOD. As announced, live streaming from the Alamo Drafthouse theaters are taking place, and this is no exception. There will be one with Elijah and Ant from the Drafthouse in LA on February 3 and extending to those attending at The Frida Cinema. No word if the stream will air on their Facebook page, but it wouldn't hurt to check it out.
:: Color Out Of Space opened this past weekend and performed very well in its limited release. It's set to expand to more theaters this coming weekend.
:: For the fans of Richard Stanley, who directed Color Out of Space, there are a couple of interviews you should like. First, a podcast from Post Mortem with Mick Garris. Second, Daniel Noah conducted one of his own for Fangoria. You can read all three parts on their site. [Part 1] [Part 2] [Part 3]
:: The Color Out of Space soundtrack is available to listen to on Spotify. If you're into the vinyl, you can get that too!
:: Lastly, let's help Elijah celebrate his 39th birthday. Hold on... wait. 39? That number doesn't seem right. If you have a Twitter or Facebook account, send him some birthday wishes and hashtag it #HappyBirthdayElijah or #Happy39Elwood or whatever you wish. We do what we've been doing here, and showing our gifts for the birthday boy. Click on the image below and sing a spirited round of
That's all... for now, and Happy Birthday Elijah!

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a pleasant holiday season. With the old decade behind us and a new one starting, let's get to it.
:: SpectreVision's, Color Out Of Space had a special screening in Los Angeles this week. There were many anxious fans waiting in line for hours to be brain-smacked by it and to sit in on the Q&A after. Some photos from the screening are beginning to trickle in.
:: Come To Daddy is about three weeks away from being released on the general public, but don't feel left out UK, you're covered! First, there's a new UK poster out. Second, you can now pre-order the movie at Amazon, and third, there will be a couple of showings of the movie in February at The Prince Charles Cinema.
:: It's pretty difficult to find one good review of Come To Daddy, because there's so many goods ones to choose from! In any case, I've put some together in the movie review section.
:: The movie's director, Ant Timpson, is sharing his experiences on making his debut feature film. Here are some of the photos he's posted, along with others I came across.      You can read and see more about the location, finding the house and journey he and Elijah took with his appearance on Ant's Twitter.
:: I've been to Fantastic Fest three times, and one of the things I love most is that festival attendees can get to know the people behind the films with Q&As. Directors, DPs, actors... Now the Alamo Drafthouse is extending that privilege to all their theaters, starting with Come To Daddy next month, where Elijah and Ant will be in attendance. Read more abut this change at Variety.
:: 20 years ago this month, Ian McKellen reached New Zealand to being working on The Lord of the Rings. He kept a journal during that time and now he's shared it with us. It's filled with his personal experiences and lots of photos, so go take a look at his blog, The Grey Book.
:: I finally got to see the film Daniel Isn't Real and it's everything and more that I've been reading about. Emotional, trippy, creepy... all the juicy things SpectreVision excels at. If you're a big horror fan, the movie is up for Best Limited Release at Fangoria's Chainsaw Awards, so hop on over there and place your votes.
:: Lastly, you-know-who's birthday is right around the corner, so if you have your artworks, poems, greetings or videos, send them in!
That's all... for now.
