2 hours ago

Having brought in Tom Cruise a couple of weeks back to star in The Mummy, it looks like Universal are looking to go after Hollywood’s ‘big guns’ for their Monsters Universe, as Deadline are reporting that Johnny Depp has signed to star in The Invisible Man.

There’s no word yet on a director for the movie, but Alex Kurtzman (The Amazing Spider-Man 2) is overseeing the whole universe and will direct The Mummy, which is set for release on June 9 2017. The Invisible Man will join Frankenstein, The Bride of Frankenstein, Dracula, Creature From The Black Lagoon and The Wolf Man before they all come together for a team-up movie, rumoured to be Van Helsing.

No word yet on whether Depp will play The Invisible Man, but it assumed he will.

Cruise and Depp are not the only big names on Universal’s hitlist, with Scarlett Johansson (Avengers: Age of Ultron »

Comic Book Review – Autumnlands #9

2 hours ago

Zeb Larson reviews Autumnlands #9…

Sheep. Beer. Mountain. Trouble.

Autumnlands is back after another relatively long hiatus, but it returns in excellent form and with an apology for its tardiness. Learoyd and Dusty spend time in the town of the sheep, where they learn about a mysterious problem plaguing the townsfolk. They’re given an opportunity to play the hero, but as always in this book, heroism is not a simple or easy thing to understand. Implicitly, it asks why heroes do what they do, and it suggests that the motivation is more complicated than wanting to be a do-gooder. I will be discussing spoilers from here on out.

Learoyd and Dusty awaken in the town of Erries, a sheep-town more reminiscent of merry old England than anywhere else they’ve been. The inhabitants believe our two heroes are wizards and ask for their assistance in solving a problem. Mysterious lights »

Unravel, the puzzle game that is more about courage and love

4 hours ago

Released today from EA and Coldwood Interactive is Unravel, a very unique, physics-based puzzle platform game in which you control Yamy.  Looking quite frankly beautiful, the challenges given – though obviously puzzling – are also rewarding as you take Yamy and yourself on an emotional journey through environments based around Northern Sweden.  What may look on the surface to be a rather beautiful puzzle game will slowly show itself to be a story of love and mending broken bonds -one of courage and persistence.

Using Yarny’s thread to swing across a gap, or rappel down a tree. But others are more complex, and players will need to use Yarny’s thread in clever and creative ways to find the path forward. Along the way, players will unlock a heartfelt story about love and longing, and the ties that bind, with Yarny as the red thread that runs through it all.

In addition to the landscape, »

First trailer for Paul Verhoeven’s Tricked

6 hours ago

A new trailer has arrived online for Paul Verhoeven’s “user generated” experimental film Tricked. Split into two parts, the first details Verhoeven’s experience on the crowdsourced project, while the second features the film itself. Take a look below after the official synopsis…

Part behind-the-scenes documentary, part narrative feature, Verhoeven’S Tricked is the result of an ambitious experiment in filmmaking. The first section follows director Paul Verhoeven (Basic Instinct, Total Recall) as he navigates the production of a crowd-sourced film. Shooting only four minutes of a prepared script, the remainder is culminated from thousands of submitted pages. In the second section, the finished film unfolds. Verhoeven’s initial premise offers the hint of a plot involving a pregnant former mistress and a struggling business, but thanks to the crowd-sourced script the story that develops is anything but predictable. With a brisk pace and exhilarating zigzag of a plot, »

Ryan Reynolds on Deadpool’s place in the X-Men timeline, and the chances of an X-Force movie

9 hours ago

With Deadpool set to open in the UK tomorrow and in the States on Friday, Ryan Reynolds is out on the press tour for the film, and during an interview with Filmstarts, the actor was asked about trivia on IMDb claiming that the film’s incarnation of the Merc with a Mouth differs from X-Men Origins: Wolverine due to the reset of X-Men: Days of Future Past.

“I really don’t think this has anything to do with Days of Future Past or its timeline,” replied Reynolds. “If it were Deadpool, he could tell Days of Future Past to take its timeline and go fuck itself. We make fun of the timelines in the movie but no, Deadpool is not affected by that at all. Deadpool I think is just his own thing, his own universe and anytime the other X-Men interact with Deadpool in his universe they do so »

Exclusive: Deadpool “couldn’t get the rights” to Avengers joke

11 hours ago

In Flickering Myth’s interview with the writers of Deadpool – which will be unveiled in full in the new episode of the Flickering Myth Podcast tomorrow (head to SoundCloud to subscribe) – Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (Zombieland) discuss how Marvel’s character right complications factored into the movie.

As a bit of context, Marvel sold off the movie rights to many of their characters in the mid-90s to avoid bankruptcy. That’s why the X-Men and Avengers occupy both separate Universes and studios (20th Century Fox and Marvel Studios, respectively).

This directly affected what Rhett and Paul originally had planned for Deadpool’s final scene – where Deadpool confronts super-villain Ajax on an aircraft carrier. It turns out that, once upon a time, the carrier was meant to be something a little more Marvel-branded.

“We wanted the carrier to be a Helicarrier,” said Reese of the concluding fight scene’s setting, »
