Top 10 Unadapted Comic Book Characters


Posted at May 8, 2013 by

Hollywood continues to rake in the dough off of comic book properties.  By now, most of the household name heroes have their own multi-movie franchises.  Let’s examine some of the more obscure comic book characters that the studios have yet to cash in on.

Stanley Kubrick’s ‘Eyes Wide Shut’ is a Game of Chess


Posted at April 10, 2013 by

Kubrick films have proven to be a can of worms when it comes to subtext and hidden messages. Room 237 is currently making that point about The Shining, but today its Eyes Wide Shut that occupies our minds.

Was It Really That Bad? ‘The Happening’


Posted at April 9, 2013 by

Filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan punched the moviegoing world in the jaw with 1999′s The Sixth Sense.  A truly unsettling and frightening film, written and directed by Shyamalan, it established the Indian American as Hollywood’s rookie of the year.  Brimming with Lebron James-like potential, Shyamalan’s immediate follow-up acts did not disappoint, with the underappreciated Unbreakable and the well-received Signs raking in untold millions at the box office.  At that point, Night seemed poised to take the throne as the most sought after filmmaker on the planet.  Unfortunately, he couldn’t keep up his blistering pace and the movies he’s released since have received mixed reviews at best (The Village) and terrible critiques at worst (Lady in the Water).  Smack dab in the middle of this slump is 2008′s The Happening.  Starring Mark Wahlberg, The Happening depicts an apocalyptic event that befalls the Eastern region of the United States.  Inexplicably, everyone just starts killing themselves in creative and disturbing ways.  It’s up to Wahlberg and co. to figure out what’s the cause of it all while attempting to avoid falling victim to the unknown forces at work.  Sounds like a pretty interesting premise, right?

Oscars: And the Winners are…


Posted at February 25, 2013 by

No one film swept the 85th Annual Academy Awards, as voters decided to spread the love in all key categories. Argo won for Best Picture, Ang Lee (Life of Pi) for Best Dirctor, Daniel Day Lewis (Lincoln) for Best Actor, Anne Hatheway (Les Miserables) for Best Supporting Actress, Jennifer Lawrence (Silver Linings Playbook) for Best Actress, and Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained) for Best Supporting Actor, and on it went. Hopefully marking the end of self-referential hosting intros, Seth MacFarlane’s performance was equally uneven, ranging from stinging one liners to the expected musical numbers, but mostly giggling at his own gags before he delivered them. See the full list of winners after the jump.

Al Pacino is Al Pacino in HBO’s ‘Phil Spector’ (Trailer)


Posted at February 5, 2013 by

Al Pacino has been missing from the big screen for quite some time. No, Stand Up Guys doesn’t count, nor does his cameo in that Sandler movie that we shall not name. On the other hand he seems to bring his ‘A’ game to the small screen, teaming up with top tier directors like Barry Levinson for You Don’t Know Jack and now with David Mamet for Phil Spector, the HBO biopic on the famed producer. Here’s our first look at him sporting a few of the many hairstyles Spector has rocked thus far. See it after the jump.

Eva Green Is ‘A Dame to Kill For’, Cast as Ava Lord in Sin City Sequel


Posted at January 29, 2013 by

With Angelina Jolie opting out of the Sin City sequel, the role of Ava Lord, otherwise know as A Dame to Kill For, left some mighty big (red) shoes to fill. The casting Gods have smiled down upon the high contrast, selectively colored comic book adaptation, as Eva Green has officially been cast.

SAG Awards Winners List: ‘Argo’ & ‘Downton Abbey’ Ensembles Tops


Posted at January 28, 2013 by

Its looking more likely that come Oscar night, Argo will take home gold in the Best Picture category. While most don’t put stock in Golden Globes Winners, its hard to ignore the outcome of SAG, PGA (which Argo also won) and the DGA (which is the last big prize on the table) winners. If Argo lands a win for Best Director, it may very well seal the deal. Other notable winners were Downton Abbey and Bryan Cranston for Breaking Bad. See the full list after the jump.

Exclusive: Rob Liefeld’s ‘Icons’ Screenplay About the Rise of Image Comics and Casting Picks


Posted at January 22, 2013 by

Rob Liefeld is a busy guy. For starters, Godyssey and Bloodstrike have both recently been tapped for big-screen treatment. He also relaunched Extreme Studios, which not only led to the return of Image Comics’ flagship title Youngblood, but also gave fans the critically acclaimed reboots of Prophet and Glory (seriously, look them up, they really are that good).

Amidst all this, Liefeld was also scripting 3 DC titles and manning the art duties on Deathstroke, that is until he quit, announcing his frustrations publicly via his Twitter feed. That was followed by another public spat with notable Batman scribe, Scott Snyder (they have since buried the hatchet). Lest we forget, Image Comics celebrated their 20th Anniversary last year, so one could only imagine all the insider commentary he’s been keeping to himself before signing up to Twitter and writing a blog.

Posted at January 14, 2013 by

Would one more BEST/WORST MOVIES OF 2012 list be too much? Maybe so, but we’ve decided to post it anyway for you to enjoy or ignore. With the Golden Globes over and done with and the Oscars quickly approaching, I thought now would be my last chance to get this out there. See them after the jump.

Golden Globes 2013 List of Winners


Posted at January 14, 2013 by

So, that’s done. The critic’s top pick Argo, walked away with top honors for Best Picture Drama, and Best Director for the very likable, hard-working, and undeniably talented Ben Affleck. For the rest see the list of Winners after the jump.

Oscars 2013 Nominations…


Posted at January 10, 2013 by

The nominees are in and there are definitely some surprises. Ben Affleck and Katheryn Bigelow, favorites in the Best Director category didn’t make the cut, and no Best Picture Nomination for The Master, even though the 10th spot was available (and somehow the very mixed Les Miserables snuck in there). Despite calling out awards season, voters found it in their hearts to acknowledge the obvious and grant Joaquin Phoenix a Best Actor nod, along with his co-stars in both supporting categories. See the full list and discuss after the jump.

Posted at January 5, 2013 by

Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained, is a bonafide critical and commercial success (on its way to becoming the director’s biggest hit to date), and certainly has several Best Actor contenders eyeing prizes in the upcoming awards season. Today fans have another treat for the eyes, 3 of the coolest unreleased posters for the film by artist Mike Butkus. See them after the jump!

Arnold Schwarzenegger Set Pic from ‘Ten’, Returning as Conan!


Posted at October 27, 2012 by

Expendables 2 was a disappointment. Sure, it was never intended to make fans out of the critics but having cost more and earned less than its predecessor, this was probably not the welcome return Arnold Schwarzenegger was expecting from his first major role since Terminator 3. There are the facts that he’s been away for quite some time and that his return to the spotlight was compromised by controversy, but all that hasn’t stopped him from lining up starring roles in a handful of new movies. Along with The Last Stand (due Jan. 2013), and The Tomb (co-starring Sylvester Stallone), we have our first set-pic from Ten, as Jack ‘Breacher’ Wharton. See the pic after the jump.

Brad Pitt’s ‘Killing Them Softly’ Posters Collected


Posted at October 26, 2012 by

Since premiering back in May at Cannes we’ve been teased and teased again by various posters for Killing Them Softly, each with their own graphical appeal. While the marketing strategy may be confusing, it certainly has managed to produce some lovely posters. The film is due to hit theaters next month, but until then we decided to collect all these posters here, including a few new ones. Click on them to enlarge, and enjoy after the jump.
