Film Review: ‘Sin City 2: A Dame To Kill For’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 21st, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

sin-city-2-a-dame-to-kill-for-eva-green-ava-lord

Second verse, same as the first. It’s been almost ten years since Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller brought us the noir-soaked graphic novels known to comic book fans around the world as ‘Sin City‘, which was created by Miller himself. This seedy, ultra violent, and nasty underworld, where crime is rampant and the bad guys end up on top of this booze drenched and drug induced city is the backdrop for some of the most entertaining characters in ever to come out of a graphic novel.

Hey guys, Jana here,

At the end of last week, we brought you a story that featured some casting news for Sony Playstation Network’s first foray into the original programming world. You can read that story, here. Today, we have more casting info.

Sharlto Copley has been in back and forth negotiations to star in the series based on the graphic novel. Copley is an excellent actor and one of my favorite things about the ‘A-Team‘ movie in 2010. His turn as Murdock was so inspired and hilarious, I could watch him all day. I still make jokes about any food that tastes a little off as having been grilled by Murdock with his special sauce (antifreeze). Most recently he was seen in ‘Maleficent‘ as Stefan, there are two films in a post-production phase right now that are set to come out in 2015.

‘Ant-Man’ Begins Production and Fills Out Cast!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Aug 18th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

Today marks the beginning of filming for Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man’. It has been a winding road getting to this point though. There has been a change in director and the loss of 3 cast-members due to scheduling issues because of delays. Some of us probably thought it would be a miracle of Marvel proportions if it were to ever make it to the big screen. Some of the reason for doubt stems from the fact that original director Edgar Wright had been working on bringing the 2D superhero to life since 2006 with very limited success.

Jumping into the SVOD game is Sony Playstation Network. This bit of original programming is bringing the graphic novel, ‘Powers‘ to the small screen. In a brilliant turn of casting Eddie Izzard and Noah Taylor have signed on to the series.

In a genre combination of superhero fantasy, crime noir and the police procedural, the series follows the lives of two homicide detectives, Christian Walker and Deena Pilgrim and is assigned to investigate cases involving people with superhuman abilities, who are referred to as Powers.  The comic began in 2000 and it’s still currently being produced.  Brian Michael Bendis writes and Michael Avon Oeming is the artist.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

batman25th

Since we are all still celebrating the 75th anniversary of our favorite hero ‘Batman‘, Warner Bros. has just announced that they will be releasing a special edition of 1989 ‘Batman‘ film that starred Michael Keaton as Batman and Jack Nicholson as The Joker. It will be called ‘Batman 25th Anniversary Two-Disc Edition, and will be on Blu-ray starting November 11th (2 days after my birthday – hint, hint). The new packaging is pretty cool as well and will fit nicely in for those of you who add this to your collection. But the big news is that this set also includes a new film called ‘Batman: The Birth of the Modern Blockbuster‘, which is a look at how the marketing and merchandising for this film set the stage for the rest of the superhero films to present day.

‘Aquaman’ Film Gains Two New Writers!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Aug 13th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

 

Aquaman17_(1996)

 

Recently Announced ‘Aquaman‘ movie gains two separate scripts.  Will Beall (‘Gangster Squad‘) and Kurt Johnstad (‘300: Rise of an Empire‘) have signed on two pen completely individual scripts. This is a truly ingenious way to achieve the same ends – Having a successful film.

With the lack of popularity for Aquaman among comic book nerds who can find reasons to love the most ridiculous of characters, making a film on the superhero would seem like an uphill battle the second the idea came to them. So how do you make an absolutely awesome film on Aquaman, the butt of the joke for even the most ardent of comic book afficionados? You realize that the first attempt is not going to live up to the dream, immediately. How do you move forward once you know that? You take the development process and dual track everything. The thought process being that if the two writers work on scripts on their own, the studio can then take the best points from each film and put them together in one super-film.

Is There a ‘Kick-Ass’ 3 In The Works?!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Aug 11th, 2014

Hey fanboys and girls, Jana here,

You may be asking yourself what is in the future for ‘Kick-Ass‘. Let me fill you in on the latest. When Mark Millar, the creator of the comic books the movies are based on, he’s not sure either. The freshman offering from the Kick-Ass universe took fans by storm and surprise. I can’t even count the number of times I’ve re-watched the movie, punched the air in victory or sat in shock watching the death of Big Daddy. Hit Girl is my personal favorite and I’ve tried telling my son numerous times that if he finds a girlfriend one day like her, I’ll be happy.

The film made stars out of relatively no-name actors Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Chloe Grace Moretz and moved them up to major players in the acting world from the bit parts they had been accepting. The budget for ‘Kick-Ass’ was a trifling $28 million dollars but brought $100 million at box offices and earned another $140 million in DVD sales. This kind of revenue would make any production company eager to sign on for a sequel and that’s what happened.

Sequel to TMNT Announced!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Aug 11th, 2014

Hey everyone, Jana here,

 

Teenage_Mutant_Ninja_Turtletop

 

I get so sad for the future of American film some days. This film is a perfect case-in-point. First off, we had to know that once Michael Bay got his hands on the film rights to one of my childhood favorites, ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles‘, that regular rules of paying respect, homage, or even a gentle nod to their beginnings as a comic book was a long shot. I think the first warning of potential trouble had to come when we saw Bay was involved. Most people would think well, he’s just a producer and not going to direct and be such a vital part of the final product. Those people would be wrong.
