David S. Goyer on whether we’ll see Swamp Thing, Doctor Occult and Zatanna in Constantine

17 October 2014 2:43 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We already know that Jim Corrigan, a.k.a. The Spectre, is heading to NBC’s upcoming DC TV series Constantine – with Emmett Scanlan (Guardians of the Galaxy) set to portray the character – and now executive producer David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight Trilogy, Man of Steel) has spoken about the possibility of delving further into DC’s supernatural universe during an interview with Screen Rant. Read what he had to say below…

“I think you’ll see some of those…If the show takes off…even within the first 12 episodes we’ve introduced two or three characters from the broader DC universe that are not just exclusively from Hellblazer. Corrigan has been mentioned, but there’s a couple of other characters we haven’t talked about that will show up as well. If the show takes off and we get our back nine and come back a second season, »

NBC Orders Three More Scripts For Constantine

8 October 2014 11:45 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Constantine will premiere on NBC on October 24th, and in some encouraging news for the series, Deadline reports that the network has ordered three extra scripts for the DC Comics adaptation. This has become a common practice for new shows, and The Flash also received a similar order recently. As the site points out, "Picking up backup scripts has become a favorite tactic of the broadcast network as it is a relatively inexpensive way to buy a few extra weeks by keeping writers working on shows that executives feel have promise before the nets have to decide on a back episodic order." From Executive Producer David S. Goyer (Batman Begins) and director Neil Marshall (Game of Thrones) comes a dark new thriller that proves fighting evil is a hell of a job. The series stars Matt Ryan, Harold Perrineau and Charles Halford. What do you guys think?  »

Lost: 10 years on

25 September 2014 2:35 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A decade after Lost first came to our screens, Gem goes back to the island...

Each Us TV season brings with it a crop of new shows: some outstanding, some memorably awful. 2004/2005, though, was a little different from most. This was the year in which we watched Gregory House solve his first medical mystery and were introduced to those notorious housewives of Wisteria Lane,while Battlestar Galactica brought the Cylons back to our screens after decades spent in sci-fi oblivion.

This unusually impressive bunch dominated the schedules for years, attracted reams of critical and fan commentary, and are still remembered with varying degrees of fondness. However, one of the series to air for the first time that season was a different proposition entirely. Mention its famously divisive ending online and you’ll unleash a torrent of derision, nostalgia and passionate debate. Ask fans to explain its myriad mysteries, and, for the most part, »

DVD Review – Sabotage (2014)

16 September 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sabotage, 2014.

Directed by David Ayer.

Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sam Worthington, Olivia Williams, Terence Howard, Joe Manganiello, Josh Holloway, Max Martini, Harold Perrineau and Mireille Enos.

Synopsis:

Members of an elite DEA task force find themselves being taken down one by one after they rob a drug cartel safe house.

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s post political return to film has been a bit of a mixed bag thus far. Aside from a couple of token appearances in the first two Expendables films, his films have all tanked (including his token appearance in The Expendables 3). That’s not to say his output hasn’t been without merits. Arnold’s first proper re-introduction came in the simple, yet highly enjoyable The Last Stand, a film which grows on me every time I see it, and deserved to be watched by more than the half dozen people who actually bothered to see it in cinemas. »

15 September 2014 10:23 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The zombie apocalypse shows no signs of slowing down, at least on the small screen. The new Syfy series “Z Nation” premiered to robust numbers on Friday, drawing 1.6 million total viewers and making the series — which hails from “Sharknado” producers The Asylum — the channel's highest-rated acquired scripted series since the 2006 premiere of “Doctor Who.” See video: DJ Qualls and Harold Perrineau Are the Nation's Only Hope in ‘Z Nation’ Teaser In the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic, the “Z Nation” premiere drew 695,000 viewers.

Blu-ray Review – Sabotage (2014)

Sabotage, 2014.

Directed by David Ayer.

Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sam Worthington, Olivia Williams, Terence Howard, Joe Manganiello, Josh Holloway, Max Martini, Harold Perrineau and Mireille Enos.

Synopsis:

Members of an elite DEA task force find themselves being taken down one by one after they rob a drug cartel safe house.

Skip Woods is the luckiest man in Hollywood right now, if not the world. Since 2001 he has been paid to write scripts for a living yet has never once showed he has the talent to warrant any future employment. If I were as bad at my day job as he is at his, I would have been fired a long, long time ago. I can only assume he has photos of important Hollywood players doing things they wish no one knew about.

This is the man who, let us never forget, defecated on the Die Hard series before audiences’ very eyes »

Syfy’s ‘Z Nation’ Premiere Piracy Levels Skyrocket

14 September 2014 4:08 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A little-known new zombie series from cable network Syfy came out of nowhere Friday to emerge as a big global piracy draw over the weekend, according to new data from piracy tracking firm Excipio.

The premiere episode of “Z Nation” was devoured by approximately 300,000 unique IP addresses in the first 24 hours since its U.S. TV debut. While that may be far from record-holders like HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” which saw over 1 million individuals illegally downloading its season 4 premiere, it’s also well in excess of other well-known series like Netflix hits “Orange is the New Black” or “House of Cards,” which attracted sub-six-figure sums.

Another humbling comparison: When a copy of “The Expendables 3″ leaked three weeks prior to its release, that attracted just 189,000–not even close to what “Z Nation” did. The torrent in question, marked ‘Z Nation S01E01 HDTV x264-killers[ettv]‘ was the most active »

‘Sabotage’ Blu-ray Review

14 September 2014 12:32 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Arnold SchwarzeneggerSam Worthington, Joe Maganiello, Terrence HowardOlivia WilliamsHarold Perrineau | Written by David Ayer, Skip Woods | Directed by David Ayer

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s journey back to the big screen has been fraught with financial peril. While the Expendables films have done decent enough business, his other ventures since his return from government have proven to be fairly rocky. The Last Stand only scrapped past making back its production budget worldwide, and although his Stallone co-starrer Escape Plan managed to make over $100 million, his latest solo starring vehicle Sabotage has made less than $20 million across the globe which used to turn out in their droves, once for a film when the Austrian Oak got pregnant. Oh how times change…

In all honesty though, its easy to see why Sabotage would not bring in wide audiences. David Ayer, who has made his name on manly men being men films »
