Watch a presentation reel for Kerry Conran’s aborted John Carter movie

8 July 2015 6:14 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Before Disney and director Andrew Stanton ventured to Barsoom for 2012’s Edgar Rice Burroughs adaptation John Carter, the project spent many a year in development, passing through the hands of a host of studios and filmmakers.

In the early 2004, John Carter was at Paramount, with the studio enlisting Kerry Conran (Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow) to direct as a replacement for Robert Rodriguez, who was forced to abandon the project after resigning from the Directors Guild of America. Conran would leave the project himself the following year (with Jon Favreau then taking a failed crack at the material), but not before he put together a rather impressive presentation reel, which has made its way online in high-res courtesy of AICN’s Harry Knowles, who was also attached as a producer on the failed adaptation. Check it out here…

Watch a Pitch Reel for a Version of 'John Carter of Mars' That Never Got Made

6 July 2015 8:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

These days, the movies that never happened are almost as popular as the movies that did. In some cases, maybe more so. Disney's adaptation of John Carter bombed so badly that many likely now wish Paramount's take on the Edgar Rice Burroughs novel had happened -- presuming it wouldn't have been any worse. Just as in the case of Alejandro Jodorowsky's Dune and Tim Burton's Superman Lives and others on the way, the story of Kerry Conran's abandoned version of John Carter for Paramount could probably do well as a crowdfunded documentary. But why wait for that to see a bunch of concept art, test footage and other goodies from Conran's pre-production on John Carter? Ain't It Cool News head honcho Harry Knowles, who was attached to Paramount's...

13 June 2015 5:42 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Netflix has announced its latest expansion to its ever-increasing slate of original programming, which is set to include a new series of the Canadian teen drama Degrassi following its cancellation by TeenNick this month. Check out the official announcement from the streaming service below…

Keeping true to the spirit of the Degrassi franchise, which generations have known and loved since 1980, Degrassi: Next Class is a pull-no-punches dramatic series that tackles the real-life issues of high school students.

Rai, Harbinger, X-o Manowar – Reflecting on the The Classic Valiant Comics O.G.’s

8 June 2015 5:01 PM, PDT | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

In a recent post about Toyo Harada I talked about the order of Valiant character appearances in the original Valiant universe from the early 1990s. I thought about it some and decided to piece together three reviews I did of first three original (post-Magnus and Solar) Valiant properties in their initial arcs as titles. Please note that these are several years old so some of the references might not be up to date and I’m not a good writer now, so you can imagine how I was then. These cover the two hardcovers that the current Valiant owner released of the classic material, Harbinger: The Beginning and X-o Manowar: Birth, along with the classic first Tpb of Rai from the ’90s.

The first page of Harbinger #1 is a splash page, the backdrop is mundane: a traffic jam, trees, a helicopter hovering above, this is the real world, the »

Check Out Posters for Netflix’s Kong – King Of The Apes and Tarzan And Jane

6 June 2015 10:04 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

In addition to expanding its original slate of dramas and comedies, Netflix is also looking to add new original content to its selection of children’s shows. (In case you didn’t know, Netflix has an entire section of its streaming site dedicated to kids under 12; other programming there comes from PBS, Disney Channel, Dreamworks, and more — but there’s no such thing as having too much TV content for kids!) [caption id="attachment_469345" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via Netflix[/caption] One of the new shows is Tarzan and Jane, an adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ stories, but with a modern day take. The series, set to launch in 2016, features a 16 year-old Tarzan, who returns from the African jungle to a boarding school in London. There, he meets up with his soulmate Jane, who (according to a press release), “helps him solve environmental injustice, crimes, and mysteries.” The eight-episode season comes from executive producer Avi Arad, »

Weird Crush Wednesday: AwfulFantasy is the cure to the purple prose that ails you

25 March 2015 2:31 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Our weekly column in which writers reveal their current in-the-margains pop culture obsession. Do you know one of the things I love most about the Internet? The whip-smart parody Twitter accounts that rise and fall like ancient regimes. Here today, gone tomorrow. Rulers of the world, then buried forever in a layer of social media sediment. A few rise above the noise to be baked into collective consciousness — like @Horse_ebooks and @FilmCriticHULK. But most are just a flash-in-the-pan. Yet while they last, these anonymous satirists can bring a much needed chuckle to a Twitter feed oscillating between political debate and Instagram photos of everyone’s idealized life and lunch choices. To that end, my current favorite is @AwfulFantasy. Every day, this ode to the purple prose of yesterday sticks it to overblown fantasy tropes. Whether involving high fantasy, space fantasy, or new-fangled steampunk, no sub-genre is safe from their loving barbs. »

Mike Mignola Takes Frankenstein Underground

19 March 2015 10:38 AM, PDT | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

His name is synonymous with Hellboy, but for five issues this spring Mike Mignola will be stepping away from Hellboy to visit with one of the greatest monsters in history: Frankenstein. In Frankenstein Underground, a five issue mini-series from Dark Horse, the monster finds himself at an ancient temple in Mexico and endears to make a friend before things go (inevitably) wrong. Mignola chatted with us about his version of the monster and its relationship to the original novel, as well as his general creative process when writing for artist Ben Stenbeck. Plus, we couldn’t resist asking about Hellboy In Hell, just a little. And beer.

Famous Monsters. Frankenstein Underground is a new spinoff from the Hellboy graphic novel House Of The Livind Dead. What do you think it is about Mary Shelley’s creation that has made people develop so many iterations of him? People are always writing and talking about him. »

Take Two: Tarzan epic 'Greystoke' doesn't hold up as a legend

12 March 2015 9:55 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It is the responsibility of the working film critic not only to see and review as many new releases as possible, but also to constantly revisit films in order to challenge one’s own opinions. Moreover, it is important to review those films as you would any other film, no matter whether you once loved it or hated it. Considering how many movies are constantly available to audiences today, every film should be considered new to someone. Critics should take it upon themselves to form new opinions of even the most revered movies, and to always remind themselves and their audiences that films do not belong on shelves. They must be seen and shared and constantly re-examined. My kids have started asking me questions about Tarzan. Certain characters hold such a permanent place in pop culture that even when there's nothing new in theaters or on TV, the character remains in the mass consciousness somehow. »

Robert Rodriguez Talks His SXSW Gallery Show (Exclusive)

9 March 2015 5:06 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

When you ask Robert Rodriguez, the visionary director of "Sin City" and "Desperado," how he was initially drawn to the graphic designs of legendary American illustrator Frank Frazetta, he'll tell you that he and his brother stumbled upon several volumes of artwork at a bookstore while waiting for their father. "We were both into art and drawing and we went to the art section and saw these books that were put out at the time called 'The Fantastic Art of Frank Frazetta.' We had never seen anything like it," Rodriguez recounts. "I used to cut them out and put them up on my wall." Coming full circle, Rodriguez is opening The Robert Rodriguez Museum during this week's South by Southwest Film Festival and showcasing original Frank Frazetta artwork, along with limited edition prints - like the "From Dusk Till Dawn" image, which we are exclusively unveiling.

For Rodriguez, Frazetta's influence cannot be overstated. »

We Want You to Have a Gorgeous Piece of Frank Frazetta Art

4 March 2015 6:47 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

This year during SXSW in Austin, filmmaker Robert Rodriguez will unveil an amazing collection of art from the legendary Frank Frazetta, whose work not only defined the look of a number of properties — including Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Tarzan and John Carter of Mars series — it also influenced a number of wonderful projects, from The Legend of Zelda to He-Man. Rodriguez, a Frazetta superman himself, is set to direct a remake of Frazetta and Ralph Bakshi’s Ice and Fire. This art show, which will be available to anyone (not just SXSW badge holders) will show off a number of original pieces from Frazetta alongside Frank Miller, Drew Struzan and Sebastian Kruger. To call it a star-studded affair fails to show proper reverence. It’s a legend-studded affair. Information about the show can be found above. It will run in downtown Austin for a week during the South by Southwest Film Festival. There »

Berlin Film Review: ‘The Pearl Button’

8 February 2015 7:15 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

What “Nostalgia for the Light” did for the desert, “The Pearl Button” is meant to do for water, but the deft melding of past and present that characterized Patricio Guzman’s earlier film becomes muddied here by the Natural Science 101 voiceover and an unsatisfying bridge between two rather disparate subjects. On the one hand, there’s a fascinating discussion of the indigenous peoples who lived in the waterways of western Patagonia; on the other, the Pinochet dictatorship’s chilling practice of dumping political prisoners into the sea. Attractive images and involving subjects partly paper over gaps in connective tissue, but “Button” is unlikely to achieve a success equal to “Light.”

Considering that Chile boasts 2,670 miles of coastline, Guzman is right to question why a country with so much seafront has never capitalized on its maritime possibilities. Unsurprisingly, the answer lies in the nation’s colonial history: Chile did have five »
