A.K.A Jessica Jones now titled Marvel’s Jessica Jones

9 June 2015 12:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Set to be released before the end of the year, the title of the next Netflix show based on a Marvel character has gone through a bit of a re-branding. Thanks to a very keen eyed fan over at TennantNews.com, it looks as though A.K.A Jessica Jones was dropping the first part of its title to simply be called Marvel’s Jessica Jones. Check out the screenshot below:

The good fellows over at ComicBook.com reached out to Marvel who confirmed that this is in fact the new title of the show. “Ever since her short-lived stint as a Super Hero ended in tragedy, Jessica Jones has been rebuilding her personal life and career as a hot-tempered, sardonic, badass private detective in Hell’s Kitchen, New York City. Plagued by self-loathing, and a wicked case of Ptsd, Jessica battles demons from within and without, using her extraordinary »

Has A.K.A. Jessica Jones Been Renamed?

8 June 2015 11:29 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Given the rapturous reception for Marvel and Netflix’s Daredevil earlier this year, the streaming service’s next superhero series certainly has big shoes to fill. Centring on superhero-turned-private-investigator Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), the show will introduce the second eventual member of the Defenders, cementing Netflix as a platform that can support an interconnected Marvel television universe. Looking at Netflix’s listing for the series today, it appears that the show, previously called A.K.A. Jessica Jones, has undergone a slight name change.

Dropping the acronym, the show appears to be simply known as Marvel’s Jessica Jones. That keeps the show in line with the no-frills title that Marvel’s Daredevil carried, and it’s not too much to theorize that the streaming service’s future Marvel shows will be called Marvel’s Luke Cage and Marvel’s Iron Fist.

Emily Blunt, the Rock, & the Post-Furiosa Action Hero

29 May 2015 11:23 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Emily Blunt is a five-foot-seven English actress best known, perhaps, for her expert comic turn as the harried assistant to a barely veiled and tyrannical version of Anna Wintour in The Devil Wears Prada. Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson is a six-foot-five former professional wrestler who boasts the unlikely combination of matinee-idol looks, a handy way with one-liners, and the physique of a contender for Mr. Universe. One of these people is poised to become America’s next big action star, but it’s not the one you might think. Blame Charlize Theron. Or Scarlett Johansson. Or maybe Carrie-Anne Moss, or Buffy the Vampire Slayer, or Summer Glau in Serenity, or Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor, or, what the hell, let’s kick it all the way back to the original queen mother of ass-kicking, Sigourney Weaver as Ellen Ripley. There have long been female leads in action films — some exhilarating, »

Sound on Sight undertook a massive project, compiling ranked lists of the most influential, unforgettable, and exciting action scenes in all of cinema.

The only thing more exciting is if the clock is ticking on his escape. Whether it’s from a burning building, »

100 Essential Action Scenes: Car Chases

7 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Sound on Sight undertook a massive project, compiling ranked lists of the most influential, unforgettable, and exciting action scenes in all of cinema. There were hundreds of nominees spread across ten different categories and a multi-week voting process from 11 of our writers. The results: 100 essential set pieces, sequences, and scenes from blockbusters to cult classics to arthouse obscurities.

Part 2 of 10: A good car chase works for completely different reasons than its bipedal counterpart. Where a foot chase is more intimate, desperate, and rough, car chases are cool, exciting, almost romantic. Here the journey overwhelms destination: tough guys (and girls) driving sleek machines at impossible speeds. And unlike foot chases, there are no real limitations on where they can go or what they can do—sometimes cars can even fly.
