Guns, Graboids and more guns.
Burt and Travis are heading back to DVD and streaming in the latest Tremors sequel, Tremors 6: A Cold Day in Hell, which saw its trailer debut online today.
As for the actual plot of the film, well that’s not entirely clear from the trailer, which gives us running, explosions and guns. Lots of guns. We also catch a glimpse of an Assblaster in the Arctic and what appears to be a strain of Graboid last seen in Tremors 5: Bloodlines.
See what you think:
As has pointed out elsewhere, the film sees Burt Gummer replace his iconic Atlanta Hawks baseball cap with a Chicago Cubs hat (Michael Gross is a Cubs fan), which is a pretty major development for the franchise (apart from the change in Graboid design of course).
There’s almost certainly going to be a liberal helping of humour in Tremors 6 (that’s a key Travis character trait) but it also seems the grittiness of Bloodlines has been raised up a notch. A colder tone for a cold climate?
Universal are again distancing themselves from the warmer feel of the Stampede films (Tremors 1 – 4) and the first SyFy TV show (not to be confused with the forthcoming Kevin Bacon SyFy pilot).
As for that plot, well here’s some more from the official press release:
“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 weaponised, 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!”
I also looked at 6 things we know about Tremors 6 last year on this very blog, which does reveal a few things not seen in the trailer.
