Titan to launch its new Fighting American series on Joe Simon’s birthday

31 minutes ago

Back in April it was announced that Titan Comics is resurrecting the classic Joe Simon and Jack Kirby comic book Fighting American for a brand new series, and now the publisher has announced that the first issue will arrive on October 11th, 2017 – the date of Joe Simon’s birthday. Take a look at the cover to the first issue from Terry Dodson and Rachel Dodson here…

First published in May 1954 and originally written and drawn by two of the greatest names in the history of comics, Joe Simon and Jack Kirby, Fighting American was the embodiment of the homegrown, god-fearing, patriotic, apple pie-eating American superhero.

Where Simon and Kirby’s other patriotic hero, Captain America, socked it to the Nazis in World War II, Fighting American brought square-jawed justice to “the Commies” and villains such as Double Header, Hotsky Trotsky, and Round Robin!

Throughout their long partnership, Simon and Kirby »

Wonder Woman becomes highest-grossing live-action movie from a female director

3 hours ago

Having become the first female filmmaker to direct a movie with a budget of $100 million, and the first to have a movie debut with a domestic opening weekend of $100 million, Patty Jenkins has now added another feather to her cap with Wonder Woman’s latest box office milestone.

The DC blockbuster has now reached $615 million worldwide, meaning it has overtaken 2009’s Mamma Mia! to become the highest-grossing live-action movie from a female director. The overall record is currently held by Jennifer Yuh Nelson and the animated film Kung Fu Panda 2 on $665 million, which Wonder Woman will likely overtake in the coming weeks (it should also be pointed out that Jennifer Lee co-directed Frozen with Chris Buck, and then went on to gross $1.2 billion).

Domestically, Wonder Woman has already surpassed Man of Steel’s $291 million, and is looking to finish the weekend with around $319 million, meaning it is fast approaching »

First Spider-Man: Homecoming reactions hit the web, suggest another winner for Marvel Studios

4 hours ago

Marvel fans can breathe a sigh of relief! The first string of reactions from press members who have seen Spider-Man: Homecoming at an early screening have hit the web (no pun intended), and they claim that the summer blockbuster is a rip-roaring, crowd-pleasing good time.

Praise, in particular, is being directed towards the film’s John Hughes-inspired tone, diverse cast and Tom Holland, who many have described as the best on-screen Spider-Man yet. Even despite Marvel Studios’ spotty track record with compelling antagonists, Michael Keaton’s Vulture has been described as one of the stronger Marvel Cinematic Universe villains. Overall, if the previous three Spider-Man solo films (Spider-Man 3, The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man) were examples of Spidey at his worst, Homecoming sounds like a return to form for the web-slinger. See the hugely positive reactions for yourself down below…

First look at Peter Dinklage and Jamie Dornan in HBO’s My Dinner with Hervé, Mireille Enos and more join cast

6 hours ago

Game of Thrones isn’t the only project Peter Dinklage is lending his talents to over at HBO, as the network has unveiled a first-look image of the actor in My Dinner With Hervé.

The upcoming TV movie takes a look at the life of Fantasy Island and The Man with the Golden Gun star Hervé Villechaize (described as “the world’s most famous gun-toting dwarf” by HBO), who took his own life in 1993. Check out the image, which features co-star Jamie Dornan (50 Shades of Grey) as struggling writer Danny Tate alongside Dinklage’s Villechaize, below…

Being perhaps the most accomplished and celebrated dwarf actor of all time makes Dinklage a good choice to fill Villechaize’s shoes, although it’s worth noting that Dinklage isn’t of Filipino and English descent like his counterpart.

My Dinner with Hervé is set during “one wild night” in Los Angeles, just days before Villechaize’s suicide, »

How to Save the Dark Universe

Harrison Abbott on how Universal can save the Dark Universe

Whilst its international take is admittedly surpassing its domestic performance by quite some way, it is still reasonable to suggest that The Mummy hasn’t been the mega-hit that Universal were hoping for. Weighed down by astonishingly clunky exposition, countless instances of tonal whiplash and a certain high profile ego to contend with (not to mention that embarrassing PR blunder with the trailer audio), the film has been the deserving subject of bad word of mouth and a relentless onslaught of critical maulings. Suffice it to say, it has been something of a rocky journey for the first instalment in the fledgling ”Dark Universe”.

In case you need catching up to speed, this Dark Universe is essentially the latest attempt to revive all of Universal’s classic movie monsters. Many efforts have been made in the past to reboot these characters, »

Lucasfilm were right to hire a new Han Solo director, but it’s their fault, not Lord and Miller’s

8 hours ago

Samuel Brace on Lucasfilm’s director shake-up on the Han Solo Star Wars movie…

Let’s start off by saying that no one likes to see people lose their jobs, and I’m sure that Phil Lord and Chris Miller did a very good job directing the movie they wanted to make. However, by looking at the evidence available, Lucasfilm were totally right to let them go and bring in a new Han Solo director. With that being said, this is their fault, not that of Lord and Miller’s; this bed they have made for themselves.

So, why was it the right decision to pursue a new director, resulting in the hiring of Ron Howard?

Well…

1) Han Solo isn’t a comedic character

When the story first broke, we heard that creative differences were why Lucasfilm decided to part ways with Lord and Miller, and as more details came out, »

“We are looking forward to diving deeper into George R.R.

Stephen King adaptation It receives R-rating from the MPAA

10 hours ago

We’ve known for a good while now that New Line Cinema was aiming for an R-rating for its Stephen King adaptation It, but now it has been made official by the MPAA, who have classified the hotly-anticipated film as an R for “violence/horror, bloody images, and for language.”

There’s certainly a lot of anticipation for the big screen take on King’s classic horror novel, as evidenced by the fact the first trailer shattered all records with a whopping 200 million views in its first 24 hours. And fans will no doubt be pleased to hear that the studio isn’t planning on watering down the material (although it has been confirmed previously that the book’s infamous underage sewer sex scene won’t feature).

Christopher Nolan comments on Hans Zimmer’s Dunkirk score

11 hours ago

With less than a month to go before the release of Dunkirk, Christopher Nolan has been chatting to Entertainment Weekly about Hans Zimmer’s score for the World War II epic, and how it helps to drive the narrative of the film.

Dunkirk is one of the greatest suspense stories of all time, and our film needed a score to reflect that and to propel the audience through a telling of this story that is more thriller than war film,” said Nolan. “Hans’ unique score drives the visceral sense of action the film needs to put the audience right into the story, using images, sound, and music.”

Here’s the tracklisting for the score:

1. The Mole

2. We Need Our Army Back

3. Shivering Soldier

4. Supermarine

5. The Tide

6. Regimental Brothers

7. Impulse

8. Home

9. The Oil

10. Variation 15 (Dunkirk)

11. End Titles

And here’s a new TV spot for the film:

Movie Review – Okja (2017)

13 hours ago

Okja, 2017.

Directed by Bong Joon Ho.

Starring: Seo-Hyun Ahn, Hee-Bong Byun, Tilda Swinton, Paul Dano, Jake Gyllenhaal, Steven Yeun and Lily Collins.

Synopsis:

Meet Mija, a young girl who risks everything to prevent a powerful, multi-national company from kidnapping her best friend – a massive animal named Okja.

Okja is the latest original film to come from Netflix. It experienced a little controversy when it premiered at the Cannes Film Festival for being a film from a streaming service. However, I think once that audience watched the film their minds quickly changed.

Our story follows a multi-national corporation, the Mirando Corporation, which has successfully created a new species of animal that they call “super pigs.” They send 26 of these super pigs to different farms across the world to be raised and taken care of and within ten years time they plan to use the meat from these pigs to sell to the mainstream. »

Sitting at about 10”, Vampirella rests gently atop a morbid throne of skeletal remains, decorated with several skulls at the top. The regal seat is draped with a sculpted scarlet fabric that pools at the base of the throne, looking like rich, red blood befitting this vampire vixen.

Vampi’s raven-hair flows gracefully behind her as she gestures enticingly, drawing you into her thrall. The bloodthirsty beauty »
