'Robot Chicken' creators get grilled on their 'DC Comics Special II'

10 April 2014 7:31 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) At six seasons and counting, "Robot Chicken" has become a cultural force almost as strong as the iconic characters and properties that it makes fun of on a weekly basis. In fact, the Adult Swim series has become a sort of singular destination for roasts of beloved movies, TV shows, comic books and pop culture mythologies, producing spinoffs like its massively-popular "Star Wars" parodies and, most recently, the second installment of their foray into one particular comic book universe with the "Robot Chicken DC Comics Special II: Villains in Paradise." The special premiered over the weekend, and will undoubtedly play again on the show's home channel, Cartoon Network. Creators Seth Green and Matthew Senreich, along with series executive producer and DC's Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns recently spoke with Cbr News recently about the process of mounting an episode dedicated to one particular nerd universe.

Film Review: ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’

8 April 2014 5:09 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Necessity is the mother of invention, which is why Marc Webb’s 2012 superhero do-over “The Amazing Spider-Man,” for all its polished proficiency and kicky star casting, felt so perfunctory: Rebooting the blockbuster Marvel franchise just five years after Sam Raimi’s “Spider-Man 3,” it couldn’t claim to be a film anyone needed. The swiftly delivered “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” finds no solution to that redundancy, but it acrobatically spins enough sound and fury to distract from the issue, while the tinderbox chemistry between leads Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone delights once more. Continuing Peter Parker’s investigation of his shady family history while serving up a brace of villains — one more familiar than the other — for him to contend with, this bloated but enjoyable outing will pull in enough crowds to justify Sony’s reluctance to relinquish this heavily built-up creative property.

Perhaps one reason the studio preferred to return to the source, »

Film Nerd 2.0: Indy and Batman and X-Men, oh my

4 April 2014 4:50 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

We live in an age of franchises. One of the simple truths of modern pop culture is that there is nothing a studio values more than the ability to get a series off the ground where they can constantly count on fans coming back for more of the same. My kids are on the hook for so many ongoing series at this point that I have to sometimes remind them that films that aren't part of a series are also worth watching. There are some series that they're not ready for yet, like "Lord Of The Rings" or "The Terminator," and Toshi is constantly pushing to see the things that have been on the "not yet" shelf for a while. Recently, we've dabbled with a few series, and the reactions from both of the kids have been interesting, and not what I expected. For example, one would think that based »

New Teaser For HBO’s The Normal Heart Shows Us A War On Aids

4 April 2014 12:59 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Larry Kramer’s fiery 1985 play The Normal Heart, which was revived on Broadway in 2011, is on its way to be one of HBO’s most prestigious projects in 2014. Based on the efforts of activist Ned Weeks in the early 1980s to create an HIV advocacy group, The Normal Heart also focused on the members of the angered gay community in New York during those years, as the AIDS crisis was about to become part of the national conversation.

A short trailer for the HBO film, which airs on May 25th, is now online and only shows a few glimpses at the all-star cast, which includes Mark Ruffalo as Ned Weeks and Taylor Kitsch as Felix Turner, a journalist who falls in love with Weeks. Matt Bomer, Alfred Molina, Jim Parsons, Jonathan Groff, Alec Baldwin and Julia Roberts round out the terrific ensemble.

Unfortunately, there is not a lot of footage in this trailer, »

Watch: Teaser for AIDS Drama 'The Normal Heart' Features a Frantic Mark Ruffalo and Julia Roberts

4 April 2014 10:17 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Eleven years ago, HBO Films released their extraordinary miniseries of Tony Kushner's Tony Award and Pulitzer-winning play "Angels in America," a story of heavenly visitors during the AIDS crisis in the 1980s. Now, HBO is tackling similar subject matter in an adaptation of another acclaimed play, Larry Kramer's "The Normal Heart." The new teaser trailer only gives a quick glimpse at the upcoming film, but it already looks mightily impressive. The story follows Ned Weeks (Mark Ruffalo), an activist struggling to bring awareness and action to the AIDS epidemic ravaging New York. Ned's friend Dr. Emma Brookner (Julia Roberts), a wheelchair-bound polio survivor, encourages abstinence among gay men, but he wants to take action. He starts an organization with the closeted Bruce Niles (Taylor Kitsch), but his firebrand personality clashes with Niles' more cautious approach. Ned also deals with his brother Ben (Alfred Molina), whose passive support suggests homophobia, »

10 remarkable things about Species

1 April 2014 2:56 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Top 10 Ryan Lambie 2 Apr 2014 - 06:07

An all-star cast hunt down a female alien in 1995's Species. Here are 10 remarkable things about this very strange film...

Nb: this article contains some saucy language and imagery that may be considered not safe for work.

Director Jonathan Glazer's Under The Skin took a B-movie concept - that of the female alien seductress - and turned it into an arthouse masterpiece starring Scarlett Johansson. 1995's Species, on the other hand, positively revels in its trashiness, with a mutating lady monster (played by Natasha Henstridge) scurrying around Los Angeles and attempting to copulate with its populace.

At the time of release, your humble writer went to a local cinema to watch Species with a group of friends, purely on the basis that it featured some creature designs by Swiss artist Hr Giger - most commonly noted for his work on the classic Alien. »
