The sixth installment in the Tremors series might not debut until May, but a new batch of images have surfaced that tease the adventure in store for those who put up a fight against the Graboids. Check out the first images from Tremors: A Cold Day in Hell in the gallery below.
In the film, "Burt Gummer (Michael Gross) and his son Travis Welker (Jamie Kennedy) find themselves up to their ears in Graboids and Ass-Blasters when they head to Canada to investigate a series of deadly giant-worm attacks. Arriving at a remote research facility in the artic tundra, Burt begins to suspect that Graboids are secretly being weaponized, but before he can prove his theory, he is sidelined by Graboid venom. With just 48 hours to live, the only hope is to create an antidote from fresh venom — but to do that, someone will have to figure out how to milk a Graboid!"
The films in the series have focused on threats these creatures pose in desert climates, with the upcoming film taking the monsters to uncharted territory, which explains the film's title.
The series began in 1990 with the film that starred Kevin Bacon, Fred Ward andMichael Gross. Throughout its many adventures, Gross has remained the only constant in the series. Bacon, however, recently wrapped shooting the pilot for a TV series based on the concept for SYFY.
Unfortunately, despite Gross' prominence in the films, he will not be appearing in the TV series.
"For Tremors fans who have been asking, 'Will Kevin Bacon return to do the films?' or 'Is your Burt Gummer character going to be in Kevin's series?' I think we can say with a good deal of certainty that the answer to both questions is 'no,'" Gross shared on his Facebook page. "The series is currently shooting in and around Albuquerque, New Mexico, and I have no other details."
The film has developed a cult following over the years, often considered one of the best monster movies of the '90s. When the first film hit theaters, however, audiences didn't respond too well to the concept, which affected Bacon's decision to avoid any sequels.
"I was like - why would I make a sequel of a bomb?" Bacon revealed to Screen Daily last year. "That makes no sense to me. I am not going to make another movie that's not going to do well at the box office. That is not a good career move."0comments
