No Such Thing as Bad Publicity

Thursday, December 31st, 2009 @ 12:31 am | Headline, News, Other

Things must be must be slow at the end of the year because The Asylum has been appearing all over the news.

We already told you about this one:

Then Cinematical did a nice feature on our cover art:

And we were thrilled to learn that MEGA SHARK VS GIANT OCTOPUS made the Yahoo top ten trailer list for 2009:

Even the print media is starting to notice. A few years ago New York Post did a feature about us, a couple years later it was Empire, then The New York Times and finally Daily Variety. Now Wired has piled on. You can read Brian Raftery’s mockbuster of every other article ever written about us here:

Hey, as long as they spell our names right…

      That article on your covers does beg the question, do you have a folder on your computer just for T-Rex images?

      I love you guys! These articles, some of which I had already known about, were fun, but the covers one and the “Wired” one were excellent. I’m a little sad that “Transmorphers” or “Pirates of Treasure Island” didn’t make it, but each to their own.

      Also, I am happy to report I just bought 5 of your movies I didn’t yet have. It was very exciting

      Last note- I noticed that you guys have a movie in production titled “The 7 Voyages Of Sinbad”, and I couldn’t be more thrilled. Is there any information to be sure on that title yet?

      Guys, great job at The Asylum. Congratulations all round. Keep up the good work & please do continue to feed the ‘B’ movie bliss unto the fans.
      Looking particularly forward to your foray into the Western with the upcoming 6 Guns. Just popped up a piece on The Asylum myself if you have a moment to stop by & check it out it would be pretty cool to have you visit. A very Happy New year to you all.

      Well, even if the movies aren’t that good, the cover art that y’all have is damn catching. Head over heels over most direct to video artwork and at times, better than the artwork conceived in some larger studio’s marketing department. What programs do you use? Photoshop and Illustrator?

      Just keep the films coming guys. Your films are more enjoyable than a large majority of the films released in theaters. My favorite scene ever is from Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus when the shark eats the plane. You can’t get any better than that.

    6. JJ Says:

      Did you know Entertainment Weekly’s Best and Worst of 2009 issue gave “Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus” the 1# worst dvd of the year? Way sweet!!

    7. JJ Says:

      Oops! My bad- You guys knew that already. Keep em’ coming cause I love em’!!!

      Happy New Year everyone. 2010 is going to be great for The Asylum, i’m also looking forward for SHERLOCK HOLMES and, specially, 6 GUNS. As a western fan, i’m so glad the people isn’t forgetting one of the greatest genres of cinema.

      Princess Of Mars, Original series Star Trek meets Tarzan with a gladiator resonance. Big Fun.

    10. James L. Bills Says:

      Your studio is the “Hammer” of our generation, the kick-ass Japanese Sci-Fi factory and more – I love your films! Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus took me back to my childhood – to Godzilla vs The Smog Monster, Green Slime, War of the Gargantuas… you get the picture.

      [...] e RATATOING e VOANDO EM BUSCA DE AVENTURAS. levando a picaretagem na brincadeira, a Asylum não se incomoda com má publicidade – ela quer é [...]

      Got here through Brittany Murphy 1977-2009 link, anyways what ashamed she died so early. Talented and beautiful lady. In regards to “No Such Thing as Bad Publicity” this is very true. There is no business like show business!
