Future blockbuster hype: the lost art of living in the now

27 November 2014 12:16 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We all enjoy speculating about future movies, but can this distract from the films already out now, James wonders...

When World War Z broke out in 2013, it all happened very fast. Brad Pitt and his family were just driving along, slowly inching their way through a traffic jam in the Philadelphia streets and suddenly - zoompf! The zombie apocalypse just came out of nowhere.

Rabid rakshasas started ripping all vestiges of modern western civilisation to shreds, attacking people who were simply going about their regular daily business. From there the whole planet is revealed to be falling to hell, Brad Pitt and fellow survivors of the viral uprising engaged in continent-crossing combat to repel the bloodthirsty hordes and find a cure for the contagion.

For Pitt's character, though, the turning point was that moment of realisation back in the Philly gridlock, back in the driving seat of his family's SUV. »

Looking back at David Fincher's Fight Club

3 October 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

With Gone Girl out now, and Fight Club about to turn 15, we take a look back at David Fincher's controversial and bravura cult film...

A warped romance about a man trying to change himself into someone as interesting as the woman he loves? A thriller about a decadent generation goading itself into extremism?

Executives at 20th Century Fox certainly struggled with Fight Club. Unsure how to market a film in which young men beat one another to a pulp and stole bags of fat from the bins of liposuction clinics, the studio placed ads for it during World Wrestling Federation matches.

I'm not one of those people who go crazy over every poster released by Mondo, but these two new ones for Fight Club and Batman: Mask Of The Phantasm are just plain awesome. We'll start with the Fight Club poster, which was created by Delicious Design League. The poster looks like it was inspired by the scene from the movie where Jack, Tyler, and the Space Monkeys threaten the police commissioner who wants to shut down the underground fights.

Watch James Avery Talk About Voicing Shredder in the Ninja Turtles Cartoon

2 January 2014 8:00 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

As pop-culture obsessives and children of the 1990s mourn the passing of James Avery, aka Uncle Phil from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, it's important to remember that Avery was the soul of another iconic '90s character. He was the voice of Shredder on the animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series, and we can never, ever forget that. Avery should have won The Sixth Man award for '80s television (an award we just made up).
