The amazing picture at the right is the first official poster for Gladiators v Werewolves: Edge of Empire, AKA “Clash of the Lycans“. Sorry it’s not bigger. (Second time I’ve said that today.) It’s got a colon in the title with an unnecessary, meaningless subtitle, so you know it’s good.

The ambitious Governor, having heard rumours of the fierce wolf-beasts beyond the great wall, senses an opportunity to win favour with the Emperor and even a place in the senate. The heroic Centurian, Titus, is tasked with hunting and trapping the wolf-creatures.

- Zombie John Wayne versus Werewolves
- Vikings versus Werewolves
- The Minnesota Vikings versus Werewolves
- Werewolves on the Moon versus Vampires (wait, that’s already a comic)
- Kramer versus Kramer versus Werewolves
- Werewolves versus Bikers
Wait, that last one is already a movie:
