Travis Fimmel to play Wyatt Earp in new History anthology series

2 hours ago

THR is reporting that Vikings star Travis Fimmel is reuniting with History for an as-yet-untitled anthology project, which explore “iconic sinners and anti-heroes throughout history”. The first instalment will tell the story of Wyatt Earp, with Fimmel taking on the role of the Old West gunslinger as we delve into Earp’s days in Dodge City through to his time as a lawman in Tombstone, Arizona – and of course the famous Gunfight at the O.K. Corral.

“I’ve always been fascinated with what motivates people’s transgressions and the scandalous journey into infamy,” said Fimmel, who is also executive producing, as well as writing the first episode. “I wanted to re-examine stories people think they know without the rose-colored glasses of Hollywood and let the audience decide for themselves if people like Wyatt Earp were sinners or victims of life circumstances. When it came time to bring this project together I knew History, »

Image announces new Cullen Bunn horror series Regression

4 hours ago

Image Comics has announced that Bram Stoker and Eisner Award-nominated writer Cullen Bunn (Harrow County, The Sixth Gun, The Empty Man) returns with debut artist Danny Luckert (Haunted) and colorist/letterer Marie Enger (Pistolwhip, 2 Sisters) for a chilling new series entitled Regression, which is set to launch in May.

“I think most readers know how much of a horror fiend I am,” said Bunn. “What many people don’t know is that my father was a professional hypnotist for many years. While it wasn’t part of his on-stage act, he often conducted past life regressions. During these sessions I saw people describing other time periods with pinpoint accuracy and even saw someone speaking a language they did not know. I also witnessed some really extremely creepy regressions that planted the seeds for this story of supernatural horror conspiracy.”

Regression follows Adrian, a man tormented by ghastly waking nightmares. Pushed to a point of desperation, »

DC announces Injustice 2 prequel comic to launch in April

4 hours ago

With Injustice 2 set to hit consoles in May, DC Comics has announced that its digital first tie-in prequel series will launch in April, with writer Tom Taylor set to be joined by artist Bruno Redondo. Here’s a look at Redondo’s cover to the first issue…

“I am so excited to continue working with Bruno Redondo. He’s a good friend and an incredible talent,” said Taylor. “I think Bruno ‘gets’ me as well as any artist ever has. We compliment each other well, and Bruno lifts Injustice up with every stroke of his pen. As a former theatre director and performer, my main focus is always on how well our characters ‘act’ on the page. Bruno brings so much emotion to the page, nailing the low points and the high. His characters breathe, and he’s just as comfortable delivering big action and shocks as he is with my ridiculous humor. »

J.K. Rowling denies Harry Potter and the Cursed Child movie trilogy rumours

6 hours ago

Despite the fact that Warner Bros. is currently expanding J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World with the five-film Fantastic Beasts franchise, rumours continue to persist that the studio is prepping an adaptation of the hit stage play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.

Back in August, it was reported – and subsequently denied – that Warner Bros. planned to approach Daniel Radcliffe for a return as Harry in a Cursed Child trilogy, and now the rumour has reared its head once again, with talk that the studio has already held talks with Radliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint, hoping to do a “Harry Potter: The Force Awakens” reunion.

Well, not so, according to J.K. Rowling, who posted the following on Twitter…

You’re Not a Nerd: The sad co-opting of geek culture

7 hours ago

Anghus Houvouras on the sad co-opting of geek culture…

Growing up, I was a nerd. An actual nerd. A computer loving, socially awkward small-for-my-age video game addict who struggled to fit it. This was back in the 1980’s when the computers were Commodore 64s and the video games were Atari. If I was a character in Revenge of the Nerds, I would have been Gilbert. Who am I kidding. I didn’t have an ounce of Anthony Edwards charisma. I was probably more akin to Lewis. Hold up. Lewis got the girl in the end, which rules out that comparison. I was never good at math and my grades weren’t good, so I guess that made me Booger.

At some point during the 21st Century, the words ‘nerd’ and ‘geek’ migrated from social stigma to a badge of honor. I see so many people proudly referring to themselves as geeks. »

How The Young Pope Has Set The Bar for 2017’s TV

10 hours ago

Samuel Brace on The Young Pope

Every once and a while, a new show comes along that makes a statement, a statement not necessarily thematic – though this one does – but a statement regarding its quality, one that says, “look out world, you’re going to have to be better now”.

This is exactly what new HBO drama (a joint venture with Sky Atlantic and Canal +) has done with the Jude Law led The Young Pope. Directed in its entirety by Paulo Sorrentino, the show first debuted in Europe towards the end of last year and made its Us debut this month. And what a show it is. The concept, while kind of intriguing on paper – a new, young American Pope (Jude Law) takes office and does general Pope like things – but in actuality, when in the actual process of consuming its content, it’s another beast entirely. It’s actually very special indeed. »

First image of Benedict Cumberbatch as Thomas Edison in The Current War

11 hours ago

With filming on The Current War well underway in London, The Weinstein Company has released the first image from the highly-anticipated drama featuring Benedict Cumberbatch as legendary American inventor Thomas Edison.

Set in the late 1880s, The Current War details the rivalry between Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse and the race to create a marketable and sustainable electricity system. Edison championed the use of a direct current for electric power distribution over an alternating current, which was backed by Westinghouse Electric and a host of European companies.

Edison and Westinghouse’s rivalry is the ultimate tale of competition driving ingenuity,” said Harvey Weinstein. “Theirs was a battle of intellect, a race of creativity and technological innovation that we see echoed in the self made inventors dominating spaces like Silicon Valley. We’re thrilled to start filming and to share this historical rivalry with audiences everywhere.”

Movie Review – Killer Pinata (2015)

12 hours ago

Killer Pinata, 2015.

Directed by Stephen Tramontana.

Starring Lindsay Ashcroft, Nate Bryan, and Billy Chengary.

Synopsis:

A possessed piñata, seeking to avenge the savagery that humanity has inflicted on his kind, picks off a group of friends, one by one, in an unending night of terror.

Sometimes a concept will sell a film. You just need one line that will capture the imagination of your potential audience. If you don’t have that, you’re in trouble, especially if you’re making a genre flick. Killer clowns, Zombies, or whatever it is, sometimes the more ridiculous you can make something sound, the more people will be intrigued to see it. This is how we find ourselves at four Sharknado films, with no danger of slowing, or you’ll hear a title like Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. That title alone makes it a must see (doesn’t it?). At the very least it piques your interest. »
