Image Comics and Skybound Entertainment have announced the upcoming release of the sinister new series Demonic, which has been co-created by Robert Kirkman and Marc Silvestri and features a creative team that includes Eisner Award-nominated Christopher Sebela (High Crimes, Escape from New York), debut artist Niko Walter, colorist Dan Brown (Wolverine Max, Ghost Rider), and letterer Sal Cipriano.
In Demonic, Detective Scott Graves will do anything to protect his family… even bargain away his soul. Now, the only thing to fear isn’t New York’s worst criminals, but what’s already raging inside of him. After all, what’s the cost of your soul when it’s already damaged?
Check out a preview of the first issue here…
Demonic #1 is out on August 17th.

On the road to Civil War II! The Ultimates deal with the fallout from their journey Outside - and the return of the Anti-Man! Meanwhile, Project: Pegasus holds the key to humanity's survival... or destruction...and Thanos is coming for it!
A sort of “mission” statement from Al Ewing and Ken Rocafort from back in the first issue of The Ultimates was how they wanted to harken back to the Mark Millar and Bryan Hitch series. They wanted to create big cinematic set pieces and deal with large scale issues. That’s a very good idea, but the execution of that idea? Not so much.
I enjoy my space cosmic drama. I like Guardians of the Galaxy and Nova. I really enjoy Venom Spaceknight and Captain Marvel, but I just can’t get into this series. I’m not a fan of how Black Panther is written- he »

It didn’t show up in the Cannes line-up as some predicted, but we won’t have to wait too long for Terrence Malick’s long-gestating Voyage of Time. The Ennio Morricone-scored project — which is technically two films, one a more educational 40-minute IMAX version narrated by Brad Pitt and the other a feature-length cut narrated by Cate Blanchett — is described as “a celebration of the earth – from the birth of the universe to its final collapse.”
Finally, we have our first official confirmation on when it will arrive. Buried deep in an IMAX press release (via One Big Soul) about its first quarter 2016 earnings, they reveal that an October 7th, 2016 release is set for the IMAX version, which now makes a Tiff and/or Venice premiere likely. With only IMAX reporting now, there isn’t an update regarding the feature-length version, but hopefully distributor Broad Green Pictures will »

Sony kicked off its CinemaCon presentation with a 'silent sizzle reel' as technical 'difficulties' stole a bit of their thunder in the early moments of this epic event. Chairman Tom Rothman took the stage quickly after and quipped comfortably to reclaim his control of the audience, setting the pace for Sony's preview night. Among his one-liners was that he wished the 'voice of God' had told him not to make Speed 2: Cruise Control! Indeed! After this rather 'bumpy' start, Sony execs unveiled what could probably be described as the most diverse slate of any of the major studios, spanning remakes and re-toolings as well as new and unique fare in both live action and animation.
Rothman started with Ang Lee's new film, Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk, which he compared (to a degree) with Life of Pi, Lee's last movie (and Academy favorite). Rothman described the movie as "powerful »
After the big announcement this week that Indiana Jones will be returning in a fifth movie, we have more news on the project today as Disney has announced the screenwriter to take charge of the newest entry in the franchise.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, regular Steven Spielberg collaborator David Koepp has been tapped to write the new film, after previously co-writing Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. He has also worked with the director on Jurassic Park, The Lost World: Jurassic Park and War of the Worlds.
More recently, Koepp has worked on Inferno, the latest Dan Brown adaptation due for release this summer starring Tom Hanks and directed by Ron Howard, as well as Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit and 2012’s Premium Rush, which he also directed.
Harrison Ford returns as Indiana Jones on July 19th, 2019.

A tad dated and scattershot, but the messy package is inventively absurd… and unlike many Hollywood comedies, able to carry that absurdity to a silly end. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing
I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I barely remember Zoolander — it was 15 years ago, after all, and I haven’t seen it since — so I can’t exactly say if I’m surprised or not that I got a big kick out of Z2. It’s true that this overdue sequel feels a tad dated: its humor is at its best when it is snarking about how out of touch has-been 1990s supermodels Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller: While We’re Young) and Hansel (Owen Wilson: No Escape) are with 2016’s fads and fashions as they come out of reclusive retirement in a hoped-for comeback. One joke with massive potential to painfully backfire, »

The Ultimates #3
Written by Al Ewing
Art by Kenneth Rocafort
Colors by Dan Brown
Letters by Joe Sabino
Published by Marvel Comics
A ramification is defined as “a consequence of an action or event, especially when complex or unwelcome.”
That word can describe all of the issues of a comic or book following a supposedly Earth-shattering event. Ultimates gives us the said Earth-shattering, and it’s only been out for three issues now.
After giving Galactus the Destroyer Life-Bringer a new design and a more worthwhile title, Ultimates #3 picks up on the lasting issues this could bring for the entire cosmos at large, and the first party to notice this is none other than the Shi’ar Imperial Guard. From the start, Kenneth Rocafort’s unique brand of art with Dan Brown on colors is built to give the feeling of anything being possible. Everything that happens is larger than »
