Jack Kirby's Birthday: Reviewing Some of his Best

28 August 2016 10:16 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Jack Kirby is a legend. Jack Kirby is responsible for the visual representations of pretty much any hero you can think of from Marvel. The Fantastic Four. The Hulk. Thor. Iron Man. Without Jack Kirby’s illustrations we wouldn’t have such amazing images to place along with Stan Lee’s words. Jack Kirby would have been 99 today so in honor of his amazing work, we’re going to discuss one of his most famous works.

The comic in question is The Fantastic Four, issue #48. I really enjoyed the build up to the Galactus reveal. Building up to it, you understood the team were about to face a foe that had unrivaled power. Sometimes, especially in that era of comics, the antagonists were not the most scary individuals. I think of Star Trek and the Ferengi. Initially, Gene Roddenberry wanted the Ferengi to be major villains on the show yet »

Review: 11.22.63

15 August 2016 12:30 PM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Based on the reviews, I knew I wanted to read 11.22.63 but its sheer size was, for some reason daunting. I figured maybe I’d just listen to it as an audiobook but those 30 hours sit waiting for me. Then, Hulu did me the favor of condensing it down to an eight-hour miniseries, which they released on DVD last week. I still will listen to the original, but this will do for now.

The idea of being able to go back in time and alter a key historic moment is always ripe for a good yarn. Heck, my Crazy 8 Press compatriots and I just did a book of alternate histories with Altered States of the Union. One of those moments that has tempted storytellers from Gene Roddenberry to King has been the untimely death of President John F. Kennedy.

Here, the master of the macabre sends an unprepared guy, Jake Epping (James Franco), back to Oct. »

With Star Trek Beyond making less money than its previous two movies week to week so far, and the lack of enthusiasm for the franchise’s 50 year anniversary, Oli and Luke argue that Star Trek needs a super producer in the vein of Kevin Feige or Kathleen Kennedy to properly exploit Paramount’s most under-used property.

'Star Trek: Discovery' to have female lead, will take place in Prime Universe

10 August 2016 6:28 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Star Trek: Discovery is about to go where only one other Star Trek has gone before: it’s hiring a female to lead the series — and, in a first for the franchise, the show's main character will not be the captain (or, in the case of Deep Space Nine, the commander). Ep Bryan Fuller revealed this as well as a number of other out-of-this-world details about the space travel franchise. While at the Television Critics Association press tour, Fuller outlined much of his vision for the series, casting updates as well as where the show fits into the overall Star Trek timeline. “We’re going to be set in the Prime Universe (the William Shatner Star Trek), and we’re about 10 years before Kirk. So that gives us an opportunity to bridge the gap between Enterprise and the original series,” Fuller said. When it came to the casting of a female to fly the ship, »

Star Trek Beyond continued the rebooted franchise’s string of rather rubbish villains, with Idris Elba’s Krall being one of the weakest parts of the movie.

But Oli reckons the parts are there to turn Beyond into a Heart of Darkness-style journey into Kirk’s psyche…with Krall as the story’s Colonel Kurtz.

Simon Pegg explains Carol Marcus’ absence in Star Trek Beyond

7 August 2016 4:37 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise reunited last month for the third entry in Paramount’s rebooted Star Trek series, Star Trek Beyond, although their was one noticeable absentee: Kirk’s old flame Carol Marcus, played by Alice Eve in 2013’s Star Trek Into Darkness.

Speaking to io9, screenwriter and star Simon Pegg has explained why they decided not to include the character in Beyond, stating that:

“We thought rather than have Carol Marcus be not used to a reasonable capacity, let’s just not include her, have her be alive, in canon, and be ready to come back at any time… I think we had some lines to explain her absence in one of the initial drafts that had her going off to start work on the Genesis project and do sort of very, very early research on that, but it didn’t make it into the final cut. »

4 August 2016 8:46 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

A nearly 600-page biography of a French filmmaker would not make every summer reading list, but any discerning cinephile will consider Éric Rohmer: A Biography.

Star Trek Beyond crosses $160 million

1 August 2016 5:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The third outing for the rebooted Star Trek franchise couldn’t quite match up to Jason Bourne’s debut, and its drop off could spell trouble.

Although the film took second place in the weekend box office war, Star Trek Beyond dropped 59.9% to earn $24 million domestically – the biggest drop-off of the rebooted franchise so far. Its domestic total now sits at $105 million. Both Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness had hit $146 million by its second week, which could show there is declining interest in the series.

The film has opened in many of its international territories – but not China – and has a worldwide total of $160 million. Star Trek earned $385 million back in 2009, and Star Trek Into Darkness ended on $467 million.

Star Trek 4 has already been announced, but the decline in box office could mean the production won’t be given $180 million this time around.

7 Reasons Why Christopher Nolan Should Direct the Next Star Trek Film

31 July 2016 10:19 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 With the rebooted Star Trek series receiving diminishing returns with each new entry and Star Trek Beyond underperforming, the future of the franchise is not certain. Maybe a new director is needed to take the series in a different direction. Cinelinx looks at seven reasons why Christopher Nolan would be the right man to save the struggling franchise.

 Although Star Trek Beyond squeaked into a distant second place this past weekend, (Behind the latest Jason Bourne film) with an estimated $24 million--taking in over $105 million in two weeks--it’s had a nearly 60% decline this weekend. That’s a significant drop compared to the last two Trek films, both of which saw their domestic totals reach over $146 million by the end of their second weekends. With a total budget of $185 million Star Trek Beyond needs to make $370 million overall, which seems unlikely at this point. If this film does lose money for the studio, »

Gary Gygax Estate Partners With ‘Transformers’ Producer Tom DeSanto (Exclusive)

27 July 2016 7:52 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Transformers” producer Tom DeSanto has struck a deal with the estate of Gary Gygax — co-creator of “Dungeons & Dragons” — to oversee the Gygax catalog of published and unpublished works.

The announcement was made on Wednesday, which would have been Gygax’s 78th birthday. His widow Gail Gygax reached a deal for DeSanto to become the “guardian of the library.”

DeSanto told Variety that he’s already discovered several potential “universe” projects among the unpublished works and expects to find a home for at least one by year’s end.

Gary Gygax is one of those names that belongs alongside George Lucas and Gene Roddenberry as storytellers whose influence reached around the globe and through generations,” he said. “I’m excited to work with Gail and honored to bring these new universes to the global audience in the way that Gary captured hearts and minds of the planet with ‘Dungeons & Dragons.' »

The Current Debate: What "Star Trek Beyond" Learns From TV

27 July 2016 3:53 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

This week’s debate constitutes a kind of sequel to last week’s weighing of the value of a big-budget Hollywood film like Ghostbusters—which is appropriate enough, since we’re of course talking about yet another sequel, the new Justin Lin-directed Star Trek Beyond. The latest entry in the almost 50-year-old franchise is the second since J. J. Abrams introduced a new main cast in 2009’s Star Trek, and for many critics, including Time’s Stephanie Zacharek, Beyond is the best nu-Trek yet:Sometime in the 1980s, before Internet trolls roamed the Earth, television’s original Star Trek got a bad name, or at least a lot of side eye, for spawning legions of nerdy, trivia-spouting loyalists who were boring at parties. Those were the days! Star Trek, as created by Gene Roddenberry, was an unapologetic expression of optimism, a vow of faith in interplanetary civic values. Its gentle »

Star Trek Beyond opens to $89 million worldwide

25 July 2016 4:53 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As Star Trek celebrates its 50th anniversary, Paramount Pictures has unleashed the third instalment of its rebooted series – and the thirteenth movie overall – with the Justin Lin-directed Star Trek Beyond enjoying a worldwide opening haul of $89.3 million.

Domestically, Beyond topped the chart with $59.3 million, which is down on the previous two instalments, with 2009’s Star Trek debuting to $75.2 million and 2013’s Star Trek Into Darkness opening with $70.2 million.

Beyond cost $185 million, so should go on to turn a small profit for the studio, which will surely be a relief for Paramount given they have already announced a fourth movie, which will see Chris Hemsworth reprising the role of George Kirk.

Star Trek Beyond,” the highly anticipated next installment in the globally popular Star Trek franchise, created by Gene Roddenberry and reintroduced by J.J. Abrams in 2009, returns with director Justin Lin (“The Fast and the Furious” franchise) at the helm »
