Like the famed government site itself, Oren Peli’s Area 51 film was something that’s existed for a while now, but has remained shrouded in secrecy and hidden from the public. The director began working on the project in 2011, and the last update we received was sometime in 2013. Since then, the film has been stuck on Paramount’s shelf, and it wasn’t clear if Area 51 would ever see the light of day. Coinciding with today’s abrupt announcement of the film’s upcoming May release date, we finally have an official trailer.
One could really make a high-stakes betting game over what AMC will next try for its break-away buzz-worthy hit, with the ends of both 'Breaking Bad' and 'Mad Men' looming on the horizon. Neither 'Hell On Wheels' nor 'The Killing' took off like anyone hoped, and for all its viewers 'The Walking Dead' doesn't always score with critics. So what's next for the network, including it's UK-adapted murder drama 'Low Winter Sun?' Why, a trip to 'Area 51,' of course!
