50 Greatest Comic Book Movie Adaptations

2 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

When we asked our staff to vote on the best comic book movie adaptations, we were afraid the results would consist only of superhero films. While there are many superhero movies listed below, it is great to see a bulk of non-Hollywood films appearing on the list as well. We set out to compile a list of 50 movies but as it were, we ended up with 5 ties, and so the list consists 55 films instead. Let us know if you think we missed something. Enjoy!

55. The Adventures of Tintin

Spielberg’s first venture into animation is one of his best. Taking notes from the classic Raiders of the Lost Ark playbook, Spielberg crafted another spirited, thrilling, and always entertaining adventure. The Adventures of Tintin is one of the most pleasurable, family-friendly experiences, that boils down to one grand treasure hunt. There’s much to admire on-screen, but it is the spectacular »

“You can swear,” she says, laughing, “which I embraced wholeheartedly.”

The series co-stars Ron Perlman (Sons of Anarchy) as Parnell Harris, a powerful judge who has a religious awakening — complete with visions and cryptic messages — soon after his adult son Pj unsuccessfully attempts suicide.

9 incredible fan films that put Hollywood to shame: What would happen if Batman battled a Predator?

28 August 2015 4:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Forget your $250 million budgets and A-list megastars, sometimes all you need to make a good film is a bit of creative thinking and passion for your characters (intellectual property rights optional).

With feature-length fan film Star Trek: Renegades setting fandom abuzz, here's a host of unauthorised movies that put Hollywood to shame.

1. Batman battles Predator

Back in the Dark Knight's movie wilderness years (thanks for that, George Clooney!), short Batman: Dead End made waves online thanks to a mega-twist that saw the Caped Crusader in a rain-soaked showdown against a Predator. If it bleeds, Batman can kill it.

2. A Judge gets back in the saddle

A tepid box office showing from 2012's Dredd means a sequel is probably never going to happen. However, hardcore fans had their thirst quenched by the moody Judge Minty, about an ageing Mega City One Judge striding through the Cursed Earth. Think of this as »

2015 Fall TV Preview: 21 New Shows You Need to Know

27 August 2015 9:56 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

"Hand of God" (Amazon) - Friday, September 4 What is it? Ron Perlman plays a corrupt judge who believes he can hear the voice of God after his son's suicide attempt. He starts a crusade to find the man who raped his son's wife, employing methods both lawful and otherwise, all in God's name. I'll like it if I like... dark TV shows with morally questionable leads; think "A Gifted Man" crossed with "The Leftovers." Why should I care? The latest Amazon series got off to a strong start in its premiere episode. We ranked it as the best of their third pilot season, ahead of "The Cosmopolitans" and "Red Oaks" (the later of which is also on this list), in part because of its phenomenal cast. Perlman is perfect in the lead role, and his supporting players — from Garrett Dillahunt to Dana Delany — add relevance to the show in a big way. »

Heitor Pereira’s Range Extends Beyond Animated Features

26 August 2015 2:12 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Animated films may be his most commercially successful, but Heitor Pereira has scored his share of live-action ones, too, including three surprising and diverse films still to come.

“The Moon and the Sun,” awaiting a release date from Paramount, mixes fantasy with historical drama in its story of King Louis Xiv (Pierce Brosnan), whose quest for immortality leads him to steal the life force of a mermaid.

“Heitor fundamentally impacted the movie in an unexpected, but quite brilliant, way,” says producer Bill Mechanic. “He crawled inside the movie and helped the rest of us understand a way in which the mermaid could communicate. She always was meant to have a musical basis for communication, but Heitor saw a way through other cultures where musical sounds become a language itself.”

Adds exec music producer Robert Kraft: “Melodically, he captured the big narrative elements of love, longing and connection. He was »

The top 20 underappreciated films of 1986

26 August 2015 11:10 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From thrillers to sci-fi to horror, here's our pick of 20 films from 1986 that surely deserve a bit more love...

A fascinating year for film, 1986. It was a time when a glossy, expensive movie about handsome men in planes could dominate the box-office, sure (that would be Top Gun). But it was also a year when Oliver Stone went off with just $6m and came back with Platoon, one of the biggest hits of the year both financially and in terms of accolades. It was also a period when the British movie industry was briefly back on its feet, resulting in a new golden age of great films - one or two of them are even on this list.

As ever, there were certain films that, despite their entertainment value or genuine brilliance in terms of movie making, somehow managed to slip through the net. So to redress the balance a little, »

Kurt Sutter Planning Sons Of Anarchy Spin-Off Series

26 August 2015 8:59 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

While you might think that he’d be consumed with his next series for Us TV network FX (medieval drama The Bastard Executioner), Kurt Sutter is not completely ready to leave his previous show, Sons Of Anarchy, behind. He’s drawing up plans for a spin-off focused on the Mayan Motorcycle Club.Sons, for those who don’t know, ran between 2008 and last year, starred Charlie Hunnam, Ron Perlman and Katey Sagal and chronicled a fictional motorcycle gang operating in Northern California. Hunnam’s Jackson “Jax” Teller struggled with his responsibilities as a father, trying to continue his own late dad’s legacy of turning the club’s fortunes and morals around and dealing with his stepfather, club leader Clarence “Clay” Morrow. With shades of Hamlet in its foundation, it was a potent blend of sex, violence, back-stabbing, front-stabbing, in-fighting, family wrangling and vehicular mayhem.The Mayans, usually led by »

Sons of Anarchy Spinoff in the Works — Who Will Be the Focus?

26 August 2015 8:16 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter is officially developing a spinoff of FX’s well-watched biker drama, TVLine has confirmed.

Few details are known about the offshoot, other than it would focus on the Mayans motorcycle club.

RelatedRon Perlman’s Sons of Anarchy Death Was Nearly Spoiled

One year ago, with an eye on Sons‘ final run of episodes, Sutter said there had been “serious conversations” about a prequel series, perhaps chronicling the origins of John Teller and Piney Winston, while at the same time he pooh-poohed the idea of a spinoff per se.

TV Review: ‘Hand of God’

26 August 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

As ambitious, premium-style dramas proliferate, it’s easy to confuse dark and nasty with cool and good. Few programs have put the gap between those poles into starker relief than “Hand of God,” a thoroughly ill-conceived and unpleasant series that continues Amazon’s struggle to match its comedy inroads (see “Transparent”) on the dramatic front. Providing a starring vehicle for Ron Perlman, who joins director Marc Forster and writer Ben Watkins among its producers, the show strands a good cast, making the 10-episode run (all of which was made available) feel less like a gripping mystery than a grueling endurance contest.

Viewers are spared the worst of the brutal act that sets the entire story in motion, but are treated to endless references to it. Perlman plays Pernell Harris, the powerful judge and influential heir in the fictional town of San Vicente, Calif. When the show begins, his son Pj lies in a coma, »

Rupert Grint in new Japanese Moonwalkers Trailer!

August 25th, 2015, 1:16pm– Rupert Grint‘s latest film, Moonwalkers, is set to be released in Japan on November 14th and today they released the very first trailer for the film (what a way to celebrate Rupert’s birthday, eh?). The trailer features Japanese writing and voiceover, but the rest of the trailer is in English so it’s easy enough to follow the action (of which there is plenty!). We can’t wait to watch this spacy adventure Rupert took with Robert Sheehan and Ron Perlman. In case you missed it, Rupert promoted Moonwalkers in Japan by doing an interview that was live streamed a couple of weeks back – check it out here. - See more at: http://www.rupert-grint.us/wordpress/#sthash.wosiYzpb.dpuf »

The City Of Lost Children Finally Hits Blu-ray

In a slightly odd but welcome move Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will finally release Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s cult classic The City of Lost Children as an Amazon-exclusive Blu-ray release on October 13. The release is timed with the French film's 20th Anniversary.

Though it wasn't their first film, the visually striking City of Lost Children helped to launch the careers of Jeunet (Amelie) and collaborator Marc Caro (Dante 01) as well as Ron Perlman. The film was incredibly influential and a progenitor of the "steampunk" aesthetic in film

Ron Perlman Terrified and Compelled by His Character in Amazon’s ‘Hand of God’

20 August 2015 12:46 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Ron Perlman talked about being both thrilled and terrified when he first read the script for Amazon’s new series “Hand of God” during the Los Angeles premiere at the Theatre at the Ace Hotel on Wednesday night.

“I’d never quite seen writing like this, I’d never ran into a character that is as emotionally compromised as mine is,” Perlman said. “I’ve never been quite so scared and then compelled to say, ‘If you don’t take this part you’re a p—y.'”

Perlman plays Judge Pernell Harris, who goes on a vigilante tear when he believes God is speaking to him through his comatose son.

“It touches upon everything that I find interesting about human behavior, especially when it is under a great deal of pressure,” Perlman said.

Ben Watkins, the creator and writer of “Hand of God,” said the inspiration for the show »

Ron Perlman & Rupert Grint Help Kubrick Fake the Moon Landing in Moonwalkers [Clips]

18 August 2015 8:37 AM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

L'Etrange just released their 2015 festival line-up and there are a ton of great looking films to add to our must watch list. The first that jumped out at me is Moonwalkers starring Ron Perlman as a CIA agent and Rupert Grin as a rock manager who join forces to help famed filmmakers Stanley Kubrick fake the moon landing.

This kind of "what of" scenario can yield some pretty fun movies and this European funded film looks like a ton of it.

The film is directed by Antoine Bardou-Jacquet and written by Dean Craig (Death at a Funeral)

July 1969, Tom Kidman, a CIA agent, is sent to London to find Stanley Kubrick and convince him to shoot a fake moon landing in case the Apollo mission fails.
