It's been 16 years since The Matrix changed action films forever by introducing the bullet time craze, making way for tons more slow-motion in the genre. Sadly, the sequels didn't have as big of an impact (though I'll defend The Matrix Reloaded to the death), but that doesn't stop the original from being one of the most iconic action films of the past 20 years. And that's because of incredible sequences like the iconic lobby fight in which Neo (Keanu Reeves) and Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) attempt to save Morpheus (Laurence Fisburne) from the building where he's being held by Agent Smith (Hugo Weaving) and his cronies. Now one of the film's fans and a Lego enthusiast has recreated the scene in block form. Watch! Here's Snooperking's Lego recreation of The Matrix lobby fight scene from Reddit (via Vulture): The original post on Reddit says this little recreation took about 160 hours of »

Announced back in January, former Doctor Who David Tennant will be taking on the role of Zebediah Killgrave aka Purple Man in the upcoming Netflix show A.K.A. Jessica Jones, which is set to debut next year.
“This is something I grew up with,” Tennant said at North Carolina’s Wizard World (via withanaccent.com). “It’s like my eight year old self doesn’t know what to do with himself. I think comic books are a glorious wonderful art form and I think Marvel is one of the things that we’ll be looking back on in a hundred years’ time they’ll be one of the cornerstones of our cultural existence.”
Tennant also had a trip round Marvel recently and seemed to have grand old time. “I got shown around and clever people gave me comic books and told me how they got made and met people that spent their day doing that stuff, »

Treading Water is a modern-day fairytale complete with hero and heroine, seemingly insurmountable obstacles, a fairy godfather (of sorts) and an unexpected all-dancing / all-swimming finale.
Mica (Douglas Smith) faces a number of challenges. He’s grown up in a house that’s actually a museum celebrating the renowned Mexican crooner Guillermo Garibai (Gonzalo Vega). Mica’s mother Sophie (Ariadna Gil) is the guardian and tour guide of this wildly over-the-top shrine. And then there’s the fact that Mica smells like fish…
Mother and son are both too much (or not enough) for Mica’s father Richard (Don McKellar), who ends up abandoning them. No one around Mica, not even his therapist Catherine (Carrie-Anne Moss), is able to get him on track, until his childhood crush Laura (Zoë Kravitz) swims back into his life. For the first time in his life he feels happy, but Mica ends up losing her as well. »

Emitting the unpleasant stench of over-affectation, “Treading Water” slaps together its particular peculiarities with such randomness, it’s as if the film were conceived from blindly throwing disparate elements at the wall. Analeine Cal y Mayor’s feature helming debut piles on the arbitrary quirkiness in recounting the curious story of Mica, who’s born with the cursed body odor of a fish (hence the film’s original title, “The Boy Who Smells Like Fish”). What ensues is a magic-realist fable in which Mica attempts to overcome the social and romantic anxieties he develops thanks to his scent, all while living in a house that doubles as a tourist museum-cum-shrine to famed ’60s Mexican singer Guillermo Garibai (Gonzalo Vega), whose portraits and knick-knacks decorate its walls and velvet-roped hallways. It’s a setup of confused contrivances, and one that, despite proficient direction and a winning lead performance, is unlikely to make many commercial waves. »

If there's one thing we've learned this past month, it's that Netflix's Marvel series are more adult oriented. It was revealed last night that there won't be much merchandising aimed at children when it comes to shows such as Marvel's Daredevil and Marvel's A.K.A. Jessica Jones, with these titles handled by Marvel Knights. And both are said to be much more realistic and violent than Marvel's The Avengers movies and spinoffs. That is evident in the latest set photos from New York City. Marvel's A.K.A. Jessica Jones is continuing to shoot in the streets, and it looks like star Krysten Ritter has seen better days.
Marvel's A.K.A. Jessica Jones is the second of the Marvel series which will be streaming on Netflix. It will follow this April's debut of Marvel's Daredevil, and like that show, it will contain 13 episodes. While no release date has been announced, it will show up »
Mike Colter is set to play Luke Cage in A.K.A. Jessica Jones next year before getting his own series shortly thereafter. We’ve already heard that Daredevil will be taking on a “dark and gritty” tone which is unlike the McU movies, but what can we expect from Luke Cage?
“It’s geared towards an adult audience, which is something that will be different from the Marvel Cinematic Universe that you’ve seen before on the big screen,” he told IGN. “I’m excited about playing the character because I’ve read the comic books. They’re very detailed, gritty; the world they’ve written in the comic books is very clear. Marvel does a fantastic job about bringing human stories – because you’re telling big stories with a heart at the centre of it – and that’s what connects all of the characters to our audience members.

"I'll make you a deal - I want three things..." With this film now playing in theaters in Canada, there's no better time to feature the first official trailer for Elephant Song from Canadian distributor eOne Films. Elephant Song is a psychological drama starring Xavier Dolan, the same filmmaker who made Mommy and Laurence Anyways, as a rather eerie patient with a mysterious past. Captain Pike of Star Trek, actor Bruce Greenwood, also stars as the hospital's director, and both Catherine Keener and Carrie-Anne Moss appear as well. I don't want to give away anything else in the plot, but the trailer should give you a good idea what's going on. I missed seeing this at Tiff, and I've been waiting to catch it. I've got to say, this trailer makes me more intrigued, even if I prefer Dolan as a director he certainly can act, too. Take a look. »

An Original vamp is sinking his teeth into Marvel’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones.
Eka Darville — who recurred on the CW drama as Marcel’s bloodsucking buddy, Diego — has joined the Netflix original series as Jessica’s neighbor, Malcolm, Marvel has announced.
Malcolm’s own journey will intertwine with Jessica’s quest in a surprising way.
Marvel’s upcoming Netflix series A.K.A. Jessica Jones has just gained three new cast additions, in the form of The Originals’ Eka Darville, The Kings of Summer actress Erin Moriarty, and Red Widow‘s Wil Traval.
Based on the initial casting report, the trio won’t be taking on roles of pre-established comic book characters, but will instead play smaller supporting parts. However, the character descriptions are just vague enough to suggest that maybe there’s more here than meets the eye, so I wouldn’t rule out any ties to the source material just yet.
Darville will play Malcolm, a neighbor to Jessica Jones “whose own journey will intertwine with her quest in a surprising way.” As for Moriarty, she’ll play a girl named Hope who becomes a client at Jones’ detective agency, Alias Investigations, and Traval will play an NYPD cop who “takes ‘protect and serve’ very seriously. »

Our weekly round up of all the news and talking points from the world of screen superheroes…
Last week I promised to revert back to the usual format of the Week in Spandex following some technical issues with the site, but unfortunately they’ve continued into this week, so again time has been very limited as we attempt to rectify the problems. So, it’s another abridged version this week (and, unless anyone is desperate for a return to the original format, potentially going forward too).
This week’s news includes the arrival of the first trailer for Marvel and Netflix’s Daredevil, an earlier UK release date for Avengers: Age of Ultron, rumoured directors for Thor: Ragnarok, comments from James Gunn on Guardians of the Galaxy 2, talk of Sony reopening negotiations with Marvel about Spider-Man, a shortlist of actresses for the female lead in Deadpool, Michael Keaton responding to »
