THE FILM

For all the comic book fans around the globe, we live in a great time of moviemaking. Over the past decade, we’ve seen Hollywood take the superhero genre by storm, releasing comic book movie after comic book movie with A-list stars, talented directors, and epic budgets to bring our childhood heroes to life on the big screen. This successful genre has even garnered many awards, as well as numerous television shows on almost every network. It shows no signs of slowing up. Marvel has paved the way for superhero franchises, building on each superhero character that culminated into the ‘Avengers‘ movies, showcasing each superhero across the other superhero movies, providing a big bridge to gather all stories together. It’s been an  excellent financial and critical success.

‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice’ Rated R?!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Feb 24th, 2016

Hey guys, Jana here,

how-much-extra-footage-do-you-expect-will-be-shown-at-the-imax-screening-365533

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice‘ has received a new MPAA rating, this time as an R rating. No, this is NOT for the theatrical version, but rather as an option for the home video under the title “Ultimate Edition” when it completes its theatrical run. It’s disappointing that we won’t get to see that kind of violence on the big-screen, though.

Both are 30-seconds and give us some insight into both heroes, Superman and Batman and their reasons for destroying the other. .

We’ve all been waiting for it and after Jimmy Kimmel grabbed Ben Affleck’s ass, they let us have it – the full ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice‘ trailer. Kick some ass DC boys!

DC fans have made themselves heard – loudly – on their presumptions of how ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice‘ is going to be. Some are excited, some are…less so. One fan even equated his expectations of Ben Affleck’s Batman to casting Barack Obama as Ronald Reagan. So this film is clearly torn down the middle as far as the fans outlook. We now have a small, slight, tiny peek, so small it can’t even be called a trailer in preparation of the full trailer dropping tomorrow night during ‘Jimmy Kimmel‘, so try, if possible, to reserve judgment.

Check out what we’ve been given and see what you think!

Hey guys, Jana here,

Marvel2

Warner Brothers and DC Comics had the con all to themselves as Marvel skipped this year due to not having enough current projects close enough to completion to show off or warrant a big panel gathering. So the Warner Bros. panel was a standing room only crowd and their anticipation paid off as two big trailers debuted for the fans: ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice‘ and ‘Suicide Squad‘ played to roaring approval.

Well it looks like Zack Snyder and Warner Bros. has an official title for the new Batman/Superman movie, which will be called ‘Dawn of Justice‘. I bet that means Dawn of the ‘Justice League‘, which Warner Bros. has been planning for quite sometime now. The film is set to open up on may 6th, 2016 and production has officially begun.

The official plan to release the ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice‘ trailer this coming Monday, but some dude with a camera phone spoiled those plans and put their shaky, grainy version with Portuguese subtitles out into the interwebs.  Zack Snyder reacted by giving the fans what we want, a peek at the trailer.

Unless you’re living under a rock, you know that one of the greatest events of the year for the modern geek is going on. Yes, indeed, I am talking about Comic-Con. DC Entertainment is celebrating one of the most wonderful creations ever – Batman’s 75th anniversary. They pay homage to the caped crusader with his inclusion on a booth wall montage.

I’ve got an “INCREDIBLE” update for you!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jan 23rd, 2018

Hey guys, Jana here,

The Incredibles‘ are making a comeback and Disney released character portraits in the most trendy, pop culture-ish way possible, as selfies matched with their artistic counter-part. Google’s Arts and Culture app has been the new driving force powering social media and everyone is doing it. I even tried to get a match on my dog, Duke, aka John Wayne, but there’s not recognition for pets, yet. Along with the images of the voice actors, we see stylized artwork of their on-screen persona, and it’s awesome to see anything coming from Disney Pixar about the upcoming sequel. But that’s not all they’ve given us. We get four new images, but we also get some plot details!

Warner Bros. and DC have been tossing the turd that was ‘Green Lantern‘ around since 2011, wondering how and where do they go from here? Well, David Goyer may turn out to have the saving solution, write a new script and move forward.

4K UHD Review: ‘Suicide Squad’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 13th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

a1kazv9rhrl-_sl1500_

THE FILM

There seems to be a good movie hidden somewhere in ‘Suicide Squad‘, but the film itself makes it nearly impossible for you to find where those good moments are. The film is its own worst enemy, because it promises something new and fresh in the first dozen or so minutes, but then nose dives into the mountain from there on out. This is certainly writer/director David Ayer’s most ambitious project and I can’t tell if it’s his mistake or the collection of DC/Warner Bros. executives who forced the notes on him to make this film not succeed, because again, the first part of the movie gathers your hopes up for something fun. Ayer wrote ‘Training Day‘ and ‘U-571‘, then transitioned into directing with ‘End of Watch‘ and ‘Fury‘, which were both new and fresh takes on tired genres. I was hoping that Ayer could breathe new life and put the DC Comic movie franchise on the right track, but alas, that is not the case.

If you love superhero soundtracks and themes from your favorite TV shows  and film that have superheroes in them, than this soundtrack is for you. WaterTower Music and DC are releasing the Volume 2 of their ‘Music of DC Comics‘ next month with 29 tracks. John Williams, Hans Zimmer, Danny Elfman, and Junkie XL are featured on the soundtrack.

Syfy is amping up their superhero game with a pilot order for a project that’s been in the works for quite a while, ‘Krypton‘. David Goyer has been working on the series for more than a year and a half. He and new exec producer/showrunner Damian Kindler (‘Sleepy Hollow‘) have been busy doing rewrites on the pilot teleplay which was penned by Goyer and Ian Goldberg.

Love them, hate them or tolerate them, superhero movies are a staple in the grand pantheon of entertainment. There doesn’t seem to be a lot of slow-down for the summer blockbuster favorites, if anything there are more and more in the woodwork just waiting for their moment in the sun. Marvel took a wide lead over their DC counterpart in both quality and quantity of films produced, but DC is looking to make a comeback and that’s starting with this summer’s ‘Superman V Batman: Dawn of Justice‘. From there, we have stand-alone movies that feature our favorite comic book supes and among those in the works is ‘Justice League: Part One‘ and ‘Aquaman‘.

Since ‘Pacific Rim 2‘ has been shelved indefinitely, Master of the Chiller, director Guillermo del Toro is circling his next project and it looks to be a remake of the 1960’s sci-fi series ‘Fantastic Voyage‘. del Toro is coming off his last picture, ‘Crimson Peak‘ released October of last year, it was moderately received despite the star power involved. So it looks like it’s time to go small, figuratively speaking, of course.

Seth Grahame-Smith Directing DC’s ‘The Flash’!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Oct 5th, 2015

Hey guys, Jana here,

480x277_seth_grahamesmith

Seth Grahame-Smith  is putting some distance between himself and the novels that rocketed him to stardom (‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter‘ and ‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies‘) by turning his eye to directing. The project in question isn’t an adaptation to one of his novels, but to ‘The Flash‘.

Comic-Con is THE entertainment spot of the universe and if you’re one of the lucky ones in attendance, you are guaranteed to see the latest and greatest the movie world has to offer. For years, we’ve waited for this event to see the newest trailers for the most anticipated films during their respective panel  presentations. This year was no different, and fans were treated to, among others, ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice‘, ‘Suicide Squad‘, ‘X-Men: Apocalypse‘ and the hottest trailer from the con, ‘Deadpool‘. I have been scanning the net ever since those panels ended looking for the studios mainstream release of the trailers to bring to you, and they’re curiously absent.

First Peek At Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor!!!

Director Zack Snyder must have one hell of a poker face, at least it would appear so considering how close to the chest he’s holding his cards dealing with ‘Batman V Superman‘. Any news or photos from the project have been deftly released under Snyder’s instructions.

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

Kryptonians

There’s a new comic book series on the horizon, and it doesn’t really even focus on one of our most loved heroes, but an ancestor of his. Where ‘Gotham‘ tells the stories of a crime-riddled city and it’s citizens, ‘Krypton‘ will focus on the planet and it’s inhabitants before Superman’s birth.

Marvel Entertainment now has a full fledged rival with Warner Bros. and DC Comics. Warner Bros. and DC Comics has just announced all of its superhero films through 2020, plus a few Lego films and new ‘Harry Potter‘ movies. Needless to say, the theaters are going to be packed and each studio is going to be vying for the top box office placement and receipts.

‘Last Flag Flying’ waves over Blu-ray!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 14th, 2017

Last Flag Flying‘ is coming to Blu-ray on January 30th and will be available digitally on January 16th. The film is directed by Richard Linklater (Dazed and Confused, Everybody Wants Some, Boyhood) and stars Steve Carell, Bryan Cranston, and Laurence Fishburne, and is based on Darryl Ponicsan’s book of the same name. The movie focuses on three older men who all served in Vietnam together. Fast forward many years later, they are all reunited when one of their son’s has died in the Iraq war and they road trip to bury the fallen. It’s a different kind of movie for sure in Linklater’s list of movies, but he proves that he can tackle any subject, even if it isn’t as silly or fun as the above mentioned films of his. There will be audio commentaries, behind the scenes featurettes, deleted scenes, and more included on this Blu-ray. Below is more information on the release.

‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2’ Finally has a Trailer!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 11th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

landscape-1435513480-my-big-fat-greek-wedding

It’s odd that it has taken this long for a sequel to come out for this. Sure, there was a short-lived television show, but that’s because most of the original cast and crew did NOT return. ‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding‘ cost $5 million to make and was produced by Tom Hanks himself. This little romantic comedy ended up making $369 million dollars in the box office. Now if that isn’t a mega hit, I don’t know what is.
